‘The Suicide Squad’ Title Treatment Revealed as the Cast Wishes Director James Gunn a Happy Birthday

It’s James Gunn‘s birthday, and while that’s not exactly the type of story we’d consider “newsworthy,” we’re going to mark the occasion by sharing this silly-but-fun video featuring The Suicide Squad cast wishing their director a happy birthday. Don’t expect anything from the actual movie here (except for Margot Robbie briefly using her Harley Quinn voice), but do expect to see a lot of disheveled-looking actors talking directly into the camera while also clutching their tiny dogs. The video al...

‘The Boys’ Season 2 Trailer: The Boys Go Up Against an Army of Supes

The Boys are on the run from the law, but that may be the least of their concerns in The Boys season 2. After Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) and his teammates, including Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon) and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara), have pissed off the most powerful superheroes in the world and found themselves fugitives from the law, a new superhero arrives on the scene to present an even bigger threat.

‘Wonder Woman 3′ May Mark the End of Patty Jenkins’ Time with the DC Comics Franchise

Director Patty Jenkins brought life back into the DC Extended Universe with Wonder Woman. Armed with the fierce Gal Gadot in the lead role, the movie was a shining beacon of hope that not every DC Comics movie needed to be gritty and gloomy. If the trailers are any indicator, Wonder Woman 1984 will continue to brighten up the DC universe, but unfortunately, whenever Wonder Woman 3 rolls around, it may mark the end of Patty Jenkins’ involvement in the franchise. In a recent interview with the ...

Cool Stuff: NECA’s ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II’ Tokka and Rahzar Action Figures Are Up for Pre-Order

NECA’s line of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures based on the original movie from 1990 have been extremely popular. In fact, they’ve been so popular that collectors have had an immense amount of difficulty getting their hands on them due to low stock, online scalpers and bots, and poorly handled retail exclusive releases from Walmart and Target. NECA has heard complaints from fans, so for their latest release, they’re making it easy for everyone to buy. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II...

‘Green Hornet’ Animated Series From Kevin Smith Raises Kato’s Daughter From Sidekick to Superhero

Marvel’s ‘Black Widow’ Will Have 30 Minutes of IMAX Footage

Black Widow‘s journey to the big screen has been a bumpy one, with the long-awaited Marvel Studios film enduring pandemic delays. But there’s one thing that might make the long wait for Marvel’s Black Widow worth it: lots of IMAX footage. IMAX recently held an earnings call (via Heroic Hollywood) where the company revealed that roughly 30 minutes of the Scarlett Johansson-starring Black Widow will be shown in IMAX’s expanded 1.90:1 aspect ratio. While the call didn’t divulge which scenes wou...

15 Years Later, ‘Constantine’ Director Francis Lawrence is Enjoying the Film’s Cult Following [Interview]

Although only 15 years old, Constantine is already aging well. The adaptation of the Hellblazer comic continues to find more fans and doesn’t date in the special effects department like so many early and mid-2000s movies already have. There’s no hard rock, pop culture references, or even outdated tech that could age the movie. Director Francis Lawrence created a world of his own in his noir-ish, sometimes hellish vision of Los Angeles. When Constantine was released in 2005, it wasn’t as well-re...

‘Man of Steel’ Alternate Ending Had Different Outcome for Superman and Zod Fight, Screenwriter David Goyer Reveals

The ending of Man of Steel may go down as one of the most polarizing comic book movie endings. The 2013 film directed by Zack Snyder and written by David S. Goyer offered a freshly realistic (read: grim) take on Superman, with a final battle scene that was a marked departure from the typically non-lethal superhero. But the infamous battle between Superman and Zod almost went in a different direction, Goyer revealed, describing a Man of Steel alternate ending that may have been a little less con...

Zack Snyder Says His Cut of ‘Justice League’ Won’t Use A Single Frame Shot By Joss Whedon

Zack Snyder wants to make one thing crystal clear: when audiences tune in for his “Snyder Cut” of Justice League when it debuts on HBO Max, there won’t be a single shot in there that was composed by Joss Whedon, who stepped in to take over production after Snyder left the movie back in 2017. According to Snyder, every single shot in the Snyder Cut will be photographed by Snyder himself. Read his fiery quotes about the subject below. A couple of months ago, HBO Max revealed that the new strea...

‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ Aims to Begin Filming in Early 2021

Thanks to the coronavirus, we’re currently in the middle of the longest period between Marvel movies since Iron Man launched the Marvel Cinematic Universe back in 2008. While America is still flailing blindly through the pandemic, other countries around the world are handling things much better – which means major blockbuster productions have a better chance to operate safely on those shores. Thor: Love and Thunder, the next Thor sequel from writer/director Taika Waititi, is evidently eyeing a ...

‘The New Mutants’ Was Inspired by ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’ and ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street 3’

Unlike other X-Men movies, which tend to take place all over the world (and sometimes in space), The New Mutants is mostly confined to a single location: a psychiatric hospital where a crew of young mutants are being held. Considering the film’s horror tone, that’s certainly appropriate. Creepy hospitals are as common in horror films as bladed weapons and scary masks. In a recent interview, director Josh Boone told us about the decision to set his X-Men film in one creepy location and how the c...

How the Failure of ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Changed ‘The New Mutants’

Any film franchise that goes on as long as Fox’s X-Men movies is going to encounter some speed bumps. And perhaps some giant, vehicle-consuming holes in the road. While X-Men: Apocalypse wasn’t a financial disaster (it made a solid half a billion dollars worldwide), the film was a creative flop of the highest order, earning scorn from critics and casual audiences alike. The film’s mind-numbing tone and generic plot were especially jarring considering what Logan and Deadpool were doing with the ...

‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ Sequel Pushed Back a Month
