Veteran showbiz writer Drew McWeeny rocked the world of superhero movies this week with his claim that he’s heard many times that humor is superhero films is being given the side eye at Warner Bros. :
Tweet Here’s a scene you might not see in the upcoming Superman vs. Batman film. Amy Adams and Henry Cavill accepted the ALS Ice Bucket challenge in full wardrobe on the set of the Man of Steel sequel. Adams challenged all the siblings names she could remember. I don’t want to ruin the end for you, but […]
Tweet Here’s is a nice story on how actor Donald Glover has been cast as the voice of Miles Morales in an episode of Ultimate Spider-Man. USA Today reports the actor will voice the character next year in an episode of Disney XD’s animated “Ultimate Spider-Man,” which in its upcoming third season carries the subtitle […]
Tweetby Pam Auditore Anyone who’s been keeping up with their reading of George RR Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire opus, knows Bowen Marsh, the First Steward of the Night’s Watch, is one of those side characters who becomes a player. It’s now confirmed by actor Michael Condron’s agency to Watchers On the Wall.com he will be playing the part in […]
TweetA happy camper @WizardWorld #ChicagoComicCon ! XX pic.twitter.com/Jo4ZR63UGs — Elvira (@TheRealElvira) August 23, 2014 Wizard World Chicago was this weekend, a now four-day extravaganza of mostly nerdlebrity stuff, but still, and it’s said to be a great place to sell art to the midwest’s large and eager fan base. It’s also the show where nerdlebrities […]
Tweet Fxx is showing EVERY EPISODE OF THE SIMPSONS ever in order, a 12-day marathon that started yesterday. The event is to celebrate theFxx getting the rebroadcast rights to every Simpsons episode, for about $1 billion. Meaning Fxx will basically be the Simpsons channell…and that’s a great idea! We caught some Season Three classics last […]
Tweet Cartoonist/comics educator Ben Towle likes to take up half the year in alphabet themed art projects; once it was monsters then animals. This time he drew 26 different musicians in a project called AlphaBands. All 26 are up now, he explains and though not everyone was a hit single, it was also a technical […]
Tweet Well it wasn’t really enormous, but it is bigger than an ant. Yet it does not show star Paul Rudd as Ant-Man but rather as brooding hoodie man. A white man in a hoodie. Safe as houses. Anyway, according to an UNUSUALLY excited press release from Disney, Ant-Man just went into production with Peyton […]
Dream: I am in a room full of food. Mike Tyson talks to Sponge Bob. Nearby, Leonard Maltin eats a sandwich.
Oh wait, it’s not a dream, I’m in the Adult Swim green room at Comic-Con. This is the room at the Hilton Bayfront where anyone on an Adult Swim panel hangs out before or afterward. Mike Tyson (who stars in an upcoming Adult Swim animated series) is talking to Sponge Bob (well, Tom Kenny) and Leonard Maltin is floating about. It’s not a dream, but it does feel deeply symbolic. Of what, I have no idea.
Tweet When Marvel and WB both picked May 6, 2916 as a release date—Marvel aggressively moving Captain America 3 to the same date as the long expected Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice—we all knew someone would blink. And it was WB. They have just announced that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will move […]
TweetThat's a wrap on #FantasticFour! Thanks to my boys @Miles_Teller @michaelb4jordan @1jamiebell for the fun times… pic.twitter.com/7ZdgvlBsP3 — Kate Mara (@_KateMara) August 2, 2014 I saw this picture floating, uncaptioned, through my social media and thought it was some kids who had just been out for PBRs and a Young the Giant show. Turns out it’s […]
Tweet Perhaps no movie since the last Quentin Tarantino film has used familiar music as effectively to cue emotions as Guardians of The Galaxy. Starting with the trailers, director James Gunn picked out 70s music that has both nostalgic schlock value and hooks as big and irresistible as the universe. The result is music that […]
Well, given LUCY triumphing over HERCULES at the box office—Scarlett Johansson is now a bigger action star than The Rock—you’d think Marvel or DC would finally fish or cut bait, shit or get off the pot, stop hemming and hawing, pull the trigger…
…AND while I was thinking of more metaphors for their on again off again pursuit of a female-led film, Sony scooped them all with a not at all vague and impossible to say if its true scoop at Deadline that says after Sinister Six in 2016 they’ll put out a female led film in 2017!
