‘Something Is Killing the Children’ and It’s Gonna Be Mike Flanagan with a Netflix TV Series Adaptation

If you saw Doctor Sleep you know that if there’s one thing you can say about Mike Flanagan it’s that that he’s really good at killing children. On film, of course! Call off the lawyers, Mike, I clarified it there at the last second. But seriously, he butchers poor little Jacob Tremblay (aka America’s younger brother) brutally in that movie, so it’s no surprise at all to me that if Netflix is doing an adaptation of the comic book Something Is Killing the Children and Mike Flanagan is involved wi...

New ‘Shazam! Fury of the Gods’ Set Photo Shows Off Battle-Damaged Suit

2019’s Shazam!, directed by David F. Sandberg, gave a whole new meaning to the idea that superheroes are for kids. Premised on the concept of a young Billy Batson (Asher Angel) receiving the power of the Old Gods whenever he says the word “Shazam” and transforming into Zachary Levi’s Shazam, the DCEU origin movie tapped into the power fantasies of superhero-loving kids everywhere. The latest set pictures taken during the filming of the sequel Shazam! Fury of the Gods!, however, suggest that sup...

‘The Suicide Squad’ Star David Dastmalchian is Accomplishing His Dreams, and He Wants the Same For You [Interview]

What a time for David Dastmalchian. For starters, we’ll soon see him as Polka-Dot Man in The Suicide Squad. What was once an obscure comic book character may soon be, thanks to James Gunn and the actor, a character we won’t soon forget. Dastmalchian is also in the adaptation of one of the most celebrated science fiction novels of all time, Dune. It’s the actor’s third collaboration with filmmaker Denis Villeneuve, who previously cast him in Prisoners and Blade Runner 2049. Plus, the actor recen...

Marvel and Warner Bros. Will Skip Comic-Con at Home This Summer

It’s officially official: No Marvel or DC films will be gracing the at-home-Hall-Hs this year. Deadline has the story and they say both blockbuster giants are bowing out of the upcoming [email protected], which will livestream its panels to viewers in the comfort of their own homes. Hence the name. Comic-Con has been a cornerstone of promoting geek properties pretty much since the very beginning when a little sci-fi movie called Star Wars decided it’d be cool to set up a booth there and try to ...

‘The Boys’ Season 3 Teaser Transports You Into a Nightmarish, Fox News-ish Vought TV Special

And they say satire is dead. In this season 3 teaser for the Amazon Prime series The Boys, American cable “news” is satirized to the fullest, all while giving us a sneak peak at what’s been happening since the end of season 2. Entertainment Weekly reports that there will be more of these segments to help tide fans over until season 3 and help fill any gaps between the two seasons.

‘Loki’ Head Writer Explains Alligator Loki: “It’s So Stupid, But It Also Makes Total Sense”

Tom Hiddleston isn’t sure whether Alligator Loki – the alligator wearing golden horns in the latest episode of Marvel’s Disney+ series Loki – is actually an alternate universe version of a Loki, or if it’s just an alligator. “The question is, ‘Is he really Loki? Or is he just green?'” Hiddleston said in a new interview. “It’s such a funny question that [the Lokis] all bicker about. One thing about Loki is that Loki loves to be right. And they all have a different opinion about this alligator.” ...

14 ‘Loki’ Episode 5 Easter Eggs and What They Could Mean for the Marvel Cinematic Universe

The intriguing mystery at the center of Loki got even more compelling with the fifth episode, “Journey into Mystery.” Not only did Loki (Tom Hiddleston) meet a whole crew of different variations of the God of Mischief, but The Void in which they’ve all been banished was chock full of Easter eggs referencing deep cuts from the history of Marvel Comics, calling back to familiar items from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and much more. So let’s take a run-through of over a dozen Loki episode 5 East...

‘The Suicide Squad’ Producer Charles Roven on How James Gunn Boarded the Supervillain Sequel [Interview]

It was always about that R-rating. James Gunn has proudly touted his no holds barred approach to The Suicide Squad, his highly anticipated follow-up to David Ayer’s 2016 film Suicide Squad. But with superhero films expanding their reach across all age demographics, it’s easy to think that Warner Bros. might have balked at Gunn letting loose with the gore and cursing. “It never became an issue,” The Suicide Squad producer Charles Roven told me in a phone interview. I spoke with the producer in a...

‘Loki’ Just Introduced a New Villain – Here’s How It May Set the Stage for the Finale

The fifth episode of Marvel’s Loki series debuted on Disney+ today. The episode is titled “Journey into Mystery,” a reference to the Marvel Comics series of the same name that would eventually be retitled Thor and refocused around the popular God of Thunder that originated in the series. And there’s plenty of mystery to be found in this episode, as the series introduces a new villain that fans didn’t see coming. However, the presence of this baddie might hint at the forthcoming arrival of someo...

How ‘Loki’ Head Writer Michael Waldron Used the Latest Episode to Rewrite the Events of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Spoilers below for episode 5 of Loki. No episode of Loki is more deserving of the series title than episode 5, “Journey Into Mystery,” which features more Loki’s than the God of Mischief himself can count. They come in all shapes and sizes now, including a child and yes, an actual alligator. And despite their distinctive nexus events and considerably different lives, even these new Loki’s provide insight into the enigmatic figure at the heart of the show. Alongside the many Variant versions of ...

‘Loki’ Episode 5 Features a Reference to One of Marvel Comics’ Most Absurd Moments

Like the God of Mischief himself, Loki has never been afraid to lean into the ridiculous. The series treats its central drama seriously enough, of course, and some would even say it does so with a somewhat surprising dark streak. But that doesn’t mean the writers haven’t been having a total blast, throwing in Easter eggs and comic book references that’ll make any Marvel fan’s head spin. The latest episode is no exception, but you’ll have to keep scrolling as we dive deep into that hilarious and...

‘Loki’ Takes Us on a “Journey Into Mystery” With Its Thrilling Penultimate Episode

Loki’s fifth episode, “Journey Into Mystery,” is chock-full of Lokis, and an Alioth to boot. Tom Hiddleston finds himself among himselves in the Void at the end of time, and Sophia Di Martino’s Sylvie is still bent on finding out who’s behind the TVA. Things really come to a head this episode, and as “Journey Into Mystery” ends, we’re teed up to hopefully find out who’s behind it all. Warning! Major spoilers abound below for the fifth episode of  Loki. The TVA is Shook, and Everyone Wants An...

‘Luke Cage’ Star Mike Colter Reflects on the Show’s Cancelation: “There Were So Many Places We Could Have Taken It”

It’s really difficult to remember a time before we all subscribed to 100 different streaming services, but let’s try to flash back a bit. About a million years ago (back in 2015) when Netflix ruled the streaming space, they began a partnership with Marvel to produce several interconnected series that built up to Marvel’s Defenders. The first three, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage, were welcomed with open arms and debuted to massive hype and success. Though Netflix famously doesn’t relea...

Prepare for Polka-Dot Man to Become Your Favorite ‘The Suicide Squad’ Character [Set Visit]

Polka-Dot Man isn’t the first character you’d think of as being the scene-stealer of a big tentpole superhero movie. A punchline maybe, or an early victim of The Suicide Squad‘s apparently high body count. And yet, there’s something behind that absurd polka dot costume and David Dastmalchian‘s mopey look as he audibly yearns for death that stirs the heartstrings. Couple that with director James Gunn‘s penchant for turning the most obscure comic book characters into movie icons, and well, you’ve...

Why John Ostrander’s ‘Suicide Squad’ Run is Essential Reading Before James Gunn’s Movie [Set Visit]

Writer/director James Gunn‘s long-awaited comic book movie The Suicide Squad debuts one month from today, which gives comic fans plenty of time to brush up on some source material before seeing what Gunn has up his sleeve. One particular stretch of comics you should hone in on is writer John Ostrander‘s 66-issue run from 1987-1992, which helped modernize the team after their initial Silver Age appearance and served as a big creative inspiration for Gunn. Here’s how reading John Ostrander’s Suic...

James Gunn’s ‘The Suicide Squad’ is More Than Just DC’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ [Set Visit]

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, director James Gunn gave us the misfit team of cosmic criminals known as the Guardians of the Galaxy, and he gave them a rockin’ soundtrack too. Now the filmmaker is tackling another ragtag group of comic book characters with the DC Comics adaptation The Suicide Squad. Even though this film is guaranteed to give us plenty of comic book action and an assembly of morally questionable characters at the center of it, producer Peter Safran says The Suicide Squad wil...

‘The Suicide Squad’ is a Standalone Movie, But It Will Still Have Some DC Easter Eggs [Set Visit]

Back in 2016, the DC Extended Universe was quickly expanding and followed up their super-sized superhero clash Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice with a possibly more exciting romp villain romp, Suicide Squad. It was a great move at the time — the trailer promised explosive fun and everyone loves the idea of a rogues gallery coming together to tackle greater evil and discover their heart! Or at least, everyone was supposed to love it. Instead, things went pretty off the rails and David Ayer’s S...

Yes, ‘The Suicide Squad’ Will Have Those James Gunn-Needledrops You Know and Love [Set Visit]

Any James Gunn fan knows just how integral a role the soundtrack plays in his movies. In 2014, Gunn announced himself to mainstream audiences and immediately set the tone with Redbone’s “Come and Get Your Love” blaring over the title card of Guardians of the Galaxy. A few short years later, he thoroughly outdid himself with the chaotic and frenzied opening credits of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, featuring the team battling an extradimensional monster set to the strains of Electric Light Orch...

‘Black Widow’ Director Cate Shortland Was Unsure of the Whole Superhero Movie Thing, Tried Dodging Scarlett Johansson’s Calls

At first glance, Cate Shortland is not the obvious choice to direct a superhero movie — her three prior films are dark dramas about women in complex, distressing situations. And while Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) is a complicated character with her fair share of tragedy, MCU movies have a history of skirting past darkness with levity and humor. So how did Shortland end up directing the long-awaited Black Widow solo movie? Simple: Scarlett Johansson courted her. In a recent Variety i...

Lady Sif is Here to Stay in the MCU Beyond That Surprise ‘Loki’ Cameo, Jaimie Alexander Teases

The fourth episode of Loki featured a surprise appearance from everyone’s favorite Asgardian warrior, Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander). She was angry, clutching a clump of her own hair, and stuck in a loop that caused Loki (Tom Hiddleston) immense emotional (and physical) pain. And yet, it was incredibly fun to watch. So if you enjoyed watching Sif hurt the “hero” of the latest Disney+ series, you’ll be delighted to learn that she’ll be back again very soon. In a post to her Instagram story, Jami...

Tom Hardy Gets His First Film Writing Credit With ‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’

Tom Hardy: Actor, producer, and… writer? Is there truly nothing this Renaissance Man can’t do? Not content to rest on his well-earned laurels after a string of roles involving weirdly iconic voices and tons of physicality, Empire brings us the unexpected news that Hardy will actually be getting a “Story by” credit for the upcoming, preposterously-named Venom: Let There Be Carnage.

‘Peacemaker’ First Look: John Cena’s ‘The Suicide Squad’ Character May or May Not Be the Hero of His Own HBO Max Series

James Gunn‘s The Suicide Squad hasn’t even been released yet, but that’s not stopping HBO Max from fully committing to a spin-off dedicated to one of the film’s misfits played by John Cena, Peacemaker. Now, Empire Magazine has provided a brand-new look at the anti-hero/villain-starring series, and the accompanying quotes by Gunn and Cena would seem to clarify exactly what viewers ought to be expecting when it comes to Peacemaker’s temperament. Their bluntness is kind of hilarious, honestly. Fir...

‘The Suicide Squad’ Star David Dastmalchian Doesn’t Just Love Comic Books – He’s Making Them, Too

Actor David Dastmalchian is a true comic book fan. And a few years ago, he fulfilled a life-long dream by collaborating with Dark Horse Comics to create his own series. The actor and writer, known for his roles in the Ant-Man movies, Blade Runner 2049, and The Suicide Squad, had been imagining the story of Count Crowley for 30 years.
