Avengers 4 Casting Call Reveals A Big Scarlet Witch And Vision Spoiler

1 hour ago

Filming on Joe and Anthony Russo’s Avengers 4 has been taking place in Atlanta for a while now, which has fast become a hub for all things Marvel Studios, given that the city also recently hosted Ant-Man and the Wasp. Not only that, but Captain Marvel is expected to swoop into production early next year there as well, when it’s believed that a number of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will cross over into Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s nascent spinoff.

The jury’s still out on that one, mind you, but we’re now learning that Avengers 4 may feature some exciting developments for Vision (Paul Bettany) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), who are expected to have fairly large roles in the blockbuster. In fact, we’ve already had set pics showing the two getting very close indeed, with a few of the shots suggesting that Vision will have his Infinity Stone removed, »

Zack Snyder Shows His Support For Justice League Director’s Cut Petition

2 hours ago

At this point, the Zack Snyder cut of Justice League has become almost the stuff of legend. It’s no secret that when Warner Bros. brought Joss Whedon in to finish off the job, they threw out a lot of Snyder’s scenes, resulting in what many DC fans feel is a half-baked film, one that would have been much better had they kept a lot of that discarded footage in. And now, with rumors pointing towards a finished cut of Snyder’s original version existing, the demand for WB to release it has been intense, to say the least.

A petition started last week has already hit over 100,000 signatures and with more and more leaking out about what exactly the alternate cut includes, fans are pushing hard for it to see the light of day. But it’s not only the DC diehards who are hoping for this to happen, »

Cinemaholics #41: Coco Review

5 hours ago

Coco is the first original Pixar movie in two years, and it’s the only original Pixar movie for the next two years as well, so no pressure, right?

The Cinemaholics unite this week with Wgtc’s very own Matt Donato to review the film, along with some other big releases coming up like The Disaster Artist starring James Franco, Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water starring Sally HawkinsDarkest Hour starring Gary Oldman, Louis C.K.’s canceled release I Love You Daddy, and Star Wars Battlefront II.

Jon, Will, and Matt kick off the episode with some discussion about John Lasseter’s leave of absence from Disney and Pixar amidst sexual misconduct allegations, noting how this has affected Toy Story 4 and what might come next. They then get into their full review of Coco (spoiler warning provided ahead of time), before the gang goes through their »

Rogue One’s Ben Mendelsohn Wants To Play Doctor Doom

5 hours ago

He’s undoubtedly one of the greatest comic book villains ever, but the adaptations of Doctor Doom we’ve seen on the big screen so far have unfailingly dropped the ball. 2005’s Fantastic Four and its sequel, 2007’s Rise of the Silver Surfer, featured a miscast Julian McMahon as Victor Von Doom while Toby Kebbell’s interpretation in 2015’s Ff reboot was just one of many things that was terrible about that particular movie.

Hopefully, we’ll get a much more faithful and successful version of the sorcerer/scientist king of Latveria in the not too distant future, as it’s been announced that Doom will be featuring in his own standalone outing pretty soon. And while no casting has been revealed just yet, one actor has made clear how much he would love to play the part.

Stylish Avengers: Infinity War Posters Take A Unique Approach

6 hours ago

Acting as the culmination of just about everything that we’ve seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date, Avengers: Infinity War is not only going to be an absolutely massive motion picture, but it’s probably also the most important film that the studio’s ever made. Set to bring together nearly all of the franchise’s characters as they unite to take on Thanos, it’s going to be an event movie unlike any other and could just be one of the biggest blockbusters of all-time.

So, with that in mind, you’d think that Marvel would want to rev up the promotional machine well in advance to ensure that the hype levels are high as we inch closer and closer to Infinity War‘s release, right? Well, unfortunately, that hasn’t exactly been the case. Those who were lucky enough to attend San Diego Comic-Con got a taste of the first trailer, »

Rumor: Jake Gyllenhaal Really Wants To Play Batman, But Studio Not Keen On Him

6 hours ago

Justice League was meant to usher in a bright new era for Batman and his Super Friends, but it’s looking likely that the movie will mark the final appearance of Ben Affleck as the Dark Knight. That’s because it’s been reported that he won’t be appearing in The Batman, after all, with Jake Gyllenhaal allegedly lined up to replace him. And, thanks to some new info, we now know a little bit more about the situation.

This leak apparently comes from an “incredibly reliable source” at Warner Bros., though it does originate from Reddit, so it’d be best taken with a pinch of salt. Still, given that the social media site has yielded accurate intel in the past, we wouldn’t completely dismiss this latest scoop.

Here’s what the post had to say:

Peter Capaldi Says He Was On Verge Of Tears When Announcing Doctor Who Exit

6 hours ago

We’re now just a few weeks away from the Doctor Who Christmas special, “Twice Upon a Time,” which will see Peter Capaldi give his final performance as the Doctor, before being replaced by Jodie Whittaker. Let’s cast our minds back to January for a moment, though, and recall the shock we felt when the actor first announced that he was leaving the sci-fi series after three seasons.

The news brought tears to the eyes of many a Doctor Who fan, and apparently the man himself as well. While chatting with Radio Times, presenter Jo Whiley spoke about Capaldi’s exit announcement, which came during an interview he gave on her BBC Radio 2 show.

“The fact that he chose to come on our show – and I remember saying to my producer, ‘Peter just wants to come on the show and talk about Doctor Who? That’s great, but any idea why? »

Zack Snyder’s Secret Justice League Cameo Has Been Revealed

7 hours ago

Justice League might not be the hit that Warner Bros. were no doubt hoping it would be, but there really is much for fans to love in the movie – no one can deny that. As it brings together six of the DC universe’s biggest names, there’s a lot of history to draw from and, while it doesn’t have much time to do that in its surprisingly lean 120 minute runtime, it tries its best to call back to a few classic comic book arcs and characters, as well as paying homage to previous DC pics that have come before.

It’s not only the easter eggs that fans need to be on the lookout for, though, as the film is also stuffed full of cameos, including one from its director: Zack Snyder. Yes, as he so often does, Snyder snuck himself into the movie for a very brief appearance, »

Rumor: Jeffrey Dean Morgan To Star In Flashpoint, Reverse Flash Will Be The Villain

8 hours ago

With Justice League finally in cinemas, DC fans are now wondering what’s up next for the franchise. One of the most intriguing projects in the works is Flashpoint, the alt-universe movie starring Ezra Miller, and though we know very little about it at the moment, a new rumour has laid out an alleged update for us, claiming that the knowledge comes from “an incredibly reliable source” at Warner Bros.

Given that this hails from Reddit, we’d advise taking it with a pinch of salt – as always – but seeing as the social media site has yielded accurate intel in the past, we wouldn’t totally write this off just yet. After all, it does sound plausible, as you’ll see below.

Jeffery Dean Morgan will co-star with Ezra Miller. Reverse Flash will be the main villain. The studio is still deciding if they want to use the film to »

Justice League Scores A Big Win At The Box Office

9 hours ago

Maybe there’s still hope, after all?

Though Justice League got off to a rocky start at the box office last week, pulling in a very underwhelming $94 million on home turf, it now sounds like the pic could still make a strong finish thanks to its run in various international markets. According to the La Times, China is proving to be a popular territory for the movie, as DC’s tentpole scooped up $52 million there last week, which is being seen as a major victory.

To put things into perspective, that number is 30% higher than Wonder Woman and only 10% below Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Of course, a strong start in China won’t save the film’s total box office haul, but it’s a promising sign and has analysts thinking that though the North American numbers came in below estimates, the overseas business may help outweigh that »

The Walking Dead And Fear The Walking Dead Crossover Character To Be Revealed Sunday

9 hours ago

Worlds will collide, that much is certain, but how exactly it will happen is still unknown.

Of course, we’re referring to the recently announced crossover between The Walking Dead, now in its eighth season, and Fear the Walking Dead, which is gearing up for its fourth. Though fans had been asking for a meeting between the two shows for some time now, it was only confirmed a few months back that it would eventually happen – we just weren’t told how or given any further details.

Still, theories and speculation have run rampant in the time since and while AMC has yet to announce anything official, the first layer will seemingly be peeled back this weekend, when the network reveals which character will be making the jump. If you want to find out who it’ll be, you better tune into Sunday’s episode of Talking Dead, which airs at 10pm Est, »

Did Joss Whedon Include A Slight Jab Against Justice League In The Film’s Opening Credits?

11 hours ago

Now that Justice League is officially out in the wild – and facing a crucial second weekend at the international box office, no less – we’ve finally gained a better understanding of Joss Whedon’s involvement.

Having earned a screenwriting credit for his contribution, it’s since been revealed that the two-time Avengers director was responsible for 15-20 percent of the final cut, including one key scene of the Caped Crusader. But if a new fan theory is to be believed, Joss Whedon actually included a jab at Justice League within the film’s opening credits.

Comic book fans are known for combing through each and every frame in search of Easter eggs and other cute references, but this one takes the biscuit. To put it kindly, it’s a stretch, but there are those who believe that Whedon intentionally made his and Chris Terrio’s (Star Wars: Episode IX) names »

The Walking Dead Officially Wraps Principal Photography On Season 8

11 hours ago

The Walking Dead just crossed a major milestone.

According to series showrunner Scott Gimple, principal photography on season 8 has now wrapped just in time for Thanksgiving Weekend. First spotted by ComicBook.com, Gimple took to Twitter to announce that Andrew Lincoln and Co. have all but completed their scenes for the second half of season 8, which is expected to get underway in February of next year.

Indeed, if ComicBook.com’s calculations hold true, The Walking Dead‘s season finale will air on April 1st, 2018, so let’s just hope the ratings show some sign of improvement between now and then. Last we reported, AMC’s flagship had slumped to a six-year low – not since season 2’s “Secrets,” which only mustered 3.1 from the 18-49 audience, has The Walking Dead scored so low.

One way or another, here’s that status report from Gimple:

Thanks and more thanks and gratitude and »

That Online Petition For A Director’s Cut Of Justice League Is At 100K Signatures And Counting

12 hours ago

Not even a week has passed since Roberto Mata launched his online appeal and already, the Change.org petition for a director’s cut of Justice League has blown past 100,000 signatures.

At the time of writing, more than 116,000 people have pledged their support, with the next target being 150,000. That’s a staggering number by anyone’s standards, and proves that when it comes to Justice League‘s potential director’s cut – one that would purportedly include all of the deleted scenes that leaked online late last night – fans won’t rest until Zack Snyder’s initial vision is restored.

And similar to the Ultimate Edition of Batman V Superman, Snyder’s untampered cut is said to be three hours in length, and includes a raft of additional cameos. We’ll refrain from identifying those big-name characters here, just in case you’ve yet to catch Justice League on the big screen. »

The Force Is Strong In This Gallery Of Hi-Res Pics For Star Wars: The Last Jedi

12 hours ago

The countdown to December 15th has officially begun.

Two years after The Force Awakens, when J.J. Abrams and Co. resurrected a dormant giant, and we stand on the verge of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

It’s the crucial second chapter in Lucasfilm’s current trilogy, which goes some way to explaining why Rian Johnson’s sequel is already being compared to The Empire Strikes Back. Only this time around, it’s the First Order and Supreme Leader Snoke who will be staging a resurgence, and with our principal heroes (see: Rey, Finn and Poe) either injured or scattered across the galaxy, the Resistance will be up against it.

In an effort to preview that monumental clash, Cbm has compiled what is perhaps the definitive gallery of hi-res images for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and we’re pleased to report that it’s relatively free of spoilers. As a matter of fact, »

Uma Thurman Breaks Silence On Harvey Weinstein: “You Don’t Deserve A Bullet”

13 hours ago

The Bride is sharpening her samurai sword.

In honor of Thanksgiving, Uma Thurman took to Instagram to wish all her followers a happy and healthy Thanksgiving Weekend – all except one: Harvey Weinstein.

Earlier this month, Thurman made the headlines when a red carpet interview went viral. Visibly shaking with anger, the Kill Bill actress addressed the sexual harassment and abuse accusations festering within Hollywood and chose her words carefully: “When I’m ready, I’ll say what I have to say.” It appears that day is now very, very close.

Thurman’s latest Instagram post ended with a “stay tuned,” indicating that she’s ready to come forward with fresh allegations against Harvey Weinstein, whom she worked under for Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill. Her full post can be viewed below, and, well, let’s just say that Uma Thurman isn’t fucking around.

Awesome Fan Edit Imagines Stranger Things Star Joe Keery As The Young Negan

13 hours ago

“You still have that bat?”

Far and away the greatest thing to come out of Stranger Things season 2 was the brotherly bond between Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) and Steve Harrington (Joe Keery), everyone’s favorite babysitter. Together, they tackled Demodogs and teenage angst like few others have, so it’s small wonder why Netflix subscribers simply couldn’t get enough of Dustin and Steve’s often hilarious dynamic.

But BossLogic has gone one step further to imagine Keery as the young Negan, the current big bad of AMC’s The Walking Dead. Indeed, Negan’s origins story has been a constant point of fixation among the show’s impassioned fanbase, so it’s fun to imagine someone as young as Joe Keery wielding the barbed-wire baseball bat and blood-red scarf – you know, even if AMC winds up selecting another actor for the role in the not-so-distant future.

It’s been a busy week for BossLogic, »

Fan-Made Video Sets Justice League’s Opening Against The Hans Zimmer And Junkie Xl Score

14 hours ago

As the Justice League fallout continues, one of Warner Bros.’ more contentious decisions was to bring in composer Danny Elfman (1989’s Batman) to fine-tune the film’s official score.

Elfman is perhaps best known for creating the iconic Batman theme, but a vocal portion of the DC community took issue with his involvement in Justice League. That largely comes down to the fact that, up until now, Warner has called upon Hans Zimmer and Antonius Tom Holkenborg (Aka Junkie Xl) to score its superhero blockbusters, given the duo have already worked on both Man of Steel and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The latter signaled Zimmer’s retirement from the superhero business, but it wasn’t until June of 2017 that Elfman replaced Junkie Xl on Justice League, leaving many to wonder what could have been had Holkenborg remained on board. After all, ever since the film’s release late last week, »

Tom Hardy’s Mma Trainer Believes The World Is Not Ready For Venom

14 hours ago

Tom Hardy isn’t one to do things by halves.

From Bronson to Fury Road to The Dark Knight Rises, the British thesp is known and loved for his raw, downright mesmerizing performances. And it looks like Venom is about to up the ante.

Pegged to arrive in 2018, the Ruben Fleischer-directed spinoff has officially entered production in Atlanta, after leaked set photos brought us closer to Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock and his humble abode. Filming will likely continue into the new year, but we’re now learning that part of Hardy’s intense fitness regime involves a bout of Mma (Mixed Martial Arts) training, which ought to please those hoping for a more physical, hardboiled movie than Marvel’s Spider-Man films.

In fact, while discussing Tom Hardy’s fitness plan in a new documentary, trainers Nathan Jones and Mark Mene heaped praise on the British actor, before warning »

Zack Snyder’s Justice League Cut Is 3 Hours Long And Provides More Depth

23 November 2017 5:57 PM, PST

Now playing in theaters across the globe, Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon’s Justice League has been dogged by mediocre reviews ever since its release on November 17th. It looks like things will only get worse before they get better, too, what with analysts claiming the pic will now limp miserably toward a $700 million box office tally, despite initial estimations projecting a billion-dollar home run for the suits at Warner Bros.

But there is an S-shaped light at the end of the tunnel – and no, we’re not talking about the Man of Steel, but rather Zack Snyder, whose cut is reportedly “much longer” than Justice League‘s theatrical version. Not only that, but it’s said to feature more cameos, too. Obviously, there’s an intense demand from the fanbase for Warner Bros. to release it – including a massive petition online – but so far, the studio’s remained silent in regards to their plans. »
