Gotham Season 4 Photos Reveal New Characters

2 hours ago

Gotham returns to Fox for its fourth season tomorrow night and from what we’ve heard, this new run is set to be the most thrilling yet, as it’ll push its ensemble cast of heroes and villains ever closer to where we know they must end up, as per the Batman comics universe. For instance, Bruce Wayne is set to step up and begin operating as a masked vigilante for the first time – albeit sans bat-ears.

Speaking of Gotham‘s eclectic ensemble, a new photo of the cast has dropped online today and it gives us another look at two fresh additions to the show’s line-up. Namely, Crystal Reed’s Sofia Falcone and Alexander Siddig as Ra’s Al-Ghul. If you recall, the latter actually appeared during the tail-end of season 3 but has been bumped up to a regular this time around.

Wonder Woman All But Confirmed For Barry Allen Solo Movie Flashpoint

3 hours ago

Gal Gadot has entered early negotiations to star opposite Bradley Cooper (Guardians of the Galaxy) in MGM drama Deeper, according to Deadline.

Of course, that’s not all that relevant to the DC Extended Universe, but buried in Deadline’s scoop was further confirmation that Gadot’s Wonder Woman will have a role to play in Flashpoint, the Barry Allen solo movie that received a huge facelift back at July’s San Diego Comic-Con.

Despite losing two big-name directors – first Seth Grahame-Smith, then Dope helmer Rick Famuyiwa – the decision to adopt DC’s famous “Flashpoint” arc has restored our faith in the Flash spinoff, one that will surely have massive ramifications for the wider Dceu as we know it. Toss Diana Prince into the mix and you have a potentially cracking origin story for Ezra Miller’s whip-smart crusader.

Here’s the latest from Deadline:

Gadot is riding high after starring in Wonder Woman. »

Game Of Thrones Drafts In Bryan Cogman To Spearhead Fifth Prequel

3 hours ago

The end is nigh for Game of Thrones, but HBO’s Song of Ice and Fire will continue far into the future.

With all six episodes of season 8 tentatively pegged for summer of 2019, the network has already begun soliciting pitches for a Game of Thrones prequel series, one that won’t involve Robert’s Rebellion nor George R.R. Martin’s fan-favorite Dunk & Egg tales. We know that because Martin is said to be actively involved in HBO’s future-proofing plans, and is working closely with a pool of writers comprised of Max Borenstein (Godzilla: King of the Monsters), Jane Goldman (Kingsman: The Golden Circle), Brian Helgeland (Robin Hood), and Carly Wray (Mad Men, The Leftovers).

But it turns out there’s room for one more in HBO’s throne room, as Entertainment Weekly brings word of a fifth prequel series being developed by Bryan Cogman. A long-time contributor to Thrones, »

David Tennant Is Dressed In Victorian Finery In New Good Omens Image

4 hours ago

The long-awaited TV adaptation of Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s cult favourite fantasy/comedy novel, Good Omens, is finally on its way. With Gaiman on board as showrunner, the social media-happy writer is on hand to tease fans with snaps from filming on his Twitter account. Already, he’s given us a shot of stars David Tennant and Michael Sheen united for the first time at the read-through, and then a glimpse at them in full costume as demon Crowley and angel Aziraphale, respectively.

Now, Gaiman’s delivered yet another shot of Tennant, this time on location and dressed in Victorian finery. “Day two in St James’s Park. Feeding the Victorian ducks,” read the caption for the photo, which you can check it out in the gallery down below.

Judging by what we see here, it seems that the show will introduce us to the angelic/infernal odd »

It Primed To Topple The Exorcist As Highest-Grossing Horror Pic In Film History

4 hours ago

The past fortnight has been a whirlwind for Warner Bros. and New Line’s It reboot.

Arriving off the back of a smart, measured marketing strategy – Bill Skarsgard ostensibly went into hiding in order to maintain the aura and mystery surrounding Pennywise – It set the global box office alight, collecting a record $123 million in North America on opening weekend.

That proved to be the first domino to fall, as the Andy Muschietti-directed pic has since chewed through practically every box office in its path to stardom, and Deadline today brings word of what is arguably It‘s most impressive feat yet. With its domestic haul of $223 million, the first chapter in New Line’s two-part Pennywise saga is within touching distance of toppling The Exorcist ($232.9m), which has clawed onto the title of highest-grossing horror pic ever since 1973.

There are, however, two caveats to that historic feat. First and foremost, »

Leaked Reactions To Justice League Test Screening Hail Warner’s Crossover As “Epic”

4 hours ago

To say that Justice League was thrust under the microscope soon after Zack Snyder’s departure may read as something of an understatement, but even after all those alarming reports of extensive reshoots and “significant” alterations, it would appear Warner’s mega-budget tentpole has emerged relatively unscathed.

As we learned earlier today, the studio recently hosted an invite-only test screening, one which purportedly involved an “assembly cut” of Justice League in order to gauge audience reaction to what is undoubtedly the biggest, most crucial instalment in the DC Extended Universe so far.

Plus, after dealing with those aforementioned creative changes – changes that led to the appointment of erstwhile Avengers director Joss Whedon – the Powers That Be likely want to measure the level of interest in Whedon/Snyder’s crossover, and relay any last-minute feedback to those VFX artists who currently have their nose to the grindstone.

The Walking Dead Season 8 Will Resolve The War Between Rick And Negan

4 hours ago

War, war never changes – unless it involves flesh-munching zombies and a tiger by the name of Shiva.

That’s right, The Walking Dead season 8 is almost upon us, and as we’ve heard countless times now, it’s set to dive right into the beloved “All-Out War” arc from Robert Kirkman’s comics. For those not familiar, the storyline saw Rick Grimes mount a full-blown assault on Negan and his demented Saviors.

It’s a conflict that will seemingly ensure that season 8 zips along at breakneck speed, too, which ought to allay fears that the latest batch of episodes will succumb to the same pacing problems that affected season 7. However, if you’re expecting this sure to be epic battle to last long into the future, you may want to think again.

Reboot Wolverine With A New Actor As Logan? Fox Exec Says “Anything’s Possible”

5 hours ago

Though the mere thought of recasting Wolverine was written off as sacrilegious back in March when Logan sunk its claws into the global box office, now that the dust has settled from Hugh Jackman’s swan song, X-Men fans are beginning to wonder what the future holds for the ferocious Weapon X.

One thing’s for sure: true to his initial promise, Hugh Jackman has closed the book on his own personal X-Men saga, and you can’t say the Aussie actor didn’t go out on a high note. As a matter of fact, 20th Century Fox is said to be mounting a sizeable Oscar push for Logan, which would place James Mangold’s noir in the company of 2017’s other superhero success story, Wonder Woman.

Exactly how much traction those campaigns will get is subject to debate, but Logan‘s Oscar credentials were raised in Variety’s exhaustive interview with Stacey Snider, »

Avengers: Infinity War Is A “Huge” Event Movie, Says Benedict Cumberbatch

5 hours ago

Is there a bigger, more impressive blockbuster currently in the works than Avengers: Infinity War?

Sure, you have Warner’s imminent Justice League and the mooted Godzilla Vs. Kong, but in the realm of Hollywood’s shared universes, Infinity War stands head and burly shoulders above the rest because it’s about to execute on a vision that began almost ten years ago with the release of Jon Favreau’s Iron Man. Toss in a post-credits scene with Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, now an McU mainstay, and the rest is history.

Indeed, when counting the yet-to-be-released Thor: Ragnarok and Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War will be the 19th instalment in Marvel’s grand universe, with everyone involved deeming Iw to be a superhero movie unlike any other. And even from the outside looking in, few would contest such a tantalizing claim.

Paramount Is Purportedly None Too Pleased With J.J. Abrams Helming Star Wars: Episode IX

6 hours ago

Given the chance, few filmmakers would turn down the dream of one day directing a Star Wars movie, and fewer still would refuse that offer twice.

And yet, The Force Awakens helmer J.J. Abrams found himself in that exact position earlier this month. With Colin Trevorrow off Star Wars: Episode IX entirely, it didn’t take long before Lucasfilm came calling. The vocation? An opportunity to journey back to that galaxy far, far away and essentially close the circle in this current Star Wars trilogy. Abrams accepted, and the rest is history.

But as The Hollywood Reporter reveals, Paramount and CEO Jim Gianopulos were none too pleased with the decision. Since his work on Mission: Impossible 3, J.J. Abrams had struck a deal with Paramount that resulted in such lucrative blockbusters as Super 8 and a pair of rebooted Star Trek movies. Said to worth $10 million a year when accounting for overheads and development, »

Has Marvel’s Inhumans Already Been Cancelled?

6 hours ago

Things haven’t been looking good for Marvel’s latest TV offering, Inhumans. Though fans were initially ecstatic when it was revealed that the cancelled movie based on the Inhuman Royal Family was to become a TV series, they quickly grew a lot less impressed once the first footage of the show rolled out. The Marvel faithful turning their backs on the series then damaged the much anticipated IMAX run of the season premiere at the box office.

Now, a new bit of speculation might just put the nail in the lid of Inhumans‘ coffin for good. RenewCancel TV have noticed that the marketing for the upcoming release of the show refers to the “complete series” rather than the expected “first season.” The inference is that Marvel/ABC have already decided to pull the plug on the project, even before it’s managed to hit the small screen.

New Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina Horror Series To Spinoff From Riverdale

6 hours ago

Soon enough, DC won’t be the only comic book publisher able to lay claim to having a shared universe residing within The CW’s prime time lineup. We say that because yet another Archie Comics property will get the live action treatment in the 2018-19 television season, as a new Sabrina The Teenage Witch series will stand alongside Riverdale.

Right now, details remain sketchy, but Variety reports that the spinoff will be based on the awesome horror comics that have come to us be way of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Additionally, the series is described as “being tonally in the vein of horror classics like Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist, and will see Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature as a half-witch, half-mortal  while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family, and the daylight world humans inhabit,” which aligns with the source material.

Fox Brass Likens New Mutants To A “Haunted House Movie” With Teenagers

7 hours ago

Let it be known that New Mutants isn’t your typical X-Men movie.

For starters, it chronicles the story of five young and gifted individuals – namely Magik, Wolfsbane, Sunspot, Cannonball and Mirage – confined to a super-secret government facility. Drawing comparisons to The Breakfast Club and even Ken Kesey’s beloved One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Fox has appointed Josh Boone director of the 2018 spinoff, and while chatting to Variety, the studio’s chair and CEO Stacey Snider touched on some of the elements that lend New Mutants its “own personality.”

Coming off the one-two punch of Deadpool and Logan, two R-rated gems that scored massive box office numbers, 20th Century Fox is riding high, as evidenced by its plans for not one, not two, but three X-Men tentpoles in 2018. That places New Mutants in the company of giants (see: Deadpool 2, Dark Phoenix), though Snider is confident Boone »

The Latest IMAX Poster For Thor: Ragnarok Is A Thing Of Beauty

7 hours ago

Ever since the first Iron Man debuted in theaters back in 2008, Marvel Studios have put on a clinic nearly every time a poster for one of their movies is revealed. Really, they’ve got some veritable wizards working in the graphic design department and, not surprisingly, the latest bit of promotional material for Thor: Ragnarok carries on that proud tradition.

A few weeks back, a rather striking IMAX poster hit the web, being both colorful and making one recall the comic books that served as the inspiration for this flick. This time, though, we’re given the model that most memorable Marvel posters have been based on, but, quite frankly, it always proves to be effective.

Take a look at the latest one-sheet in the gallery below, along with a few from the other week, and let us know what you think.

Two Clips From Gotham Season 4 Premiere Hit The Web

8 hours ago

Now that the season premiere of Gotham is so close we can taste it, Fox is rolling out generous teasers by the day. Just yesterday, we were treated to an oversized trailer for the show’s fourth year and, now, a couple sneak peeks have found their way online to whet our appetites.

In the first clip, the camera is focused squarely on a “License of Misconduct” card, something we’ll discuss further in a moment. But mainly, this particular video centers on Bruce Wayne and Alfred Pennyworth, the former of whom is obviously taking his first major strides toward becoming Batman.

From what we can gather, this scene takes place not long after Bruce puts on a mask for the first time, seemingly preparing for the inevitable return of Ra’s al Ghul. But to Alfred’s chagrin, the burgeoning vigilante has designs on multitasking, also willing to focus »

Marvel May Debut First Avengers: Infinity War Trailer Next Week

8 hours ago

Justice League notwithstanding, Marvel rocked San Diego Comic-Con two months ago by unveiling the suitably epic first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War.

Alas, unless you were one of the fortunate few in attendance in Hall H, that star-studded promo was quickly yanked off the interwebs, but we’re now hearing that the official reveal isn’t too far away. Word comes from Twitter (with a tip of the hat to McU Exchange), where one Marvel fan account claimed that Infinity War‘s trailer will be attached to the TV premiere of Inhumans on September 29th.

If true, it’ll be a strange twist of fate – pairing what is undoubtedly one of the most-anticipated comic book movies of all time with a spinoff TV series torn to shreds by critics following its much-touted IMAX premiere. Heck, there’s even been whispers that it’ll be one and done for Marvel’s Royal Family, »

Former Doctor Who Showrunner Says Criticisms About Jodie Whittaker Are Outrageous

8 hours ago

Let’s be honest, a lot of Doctor Who fans have been calling for a female Doctor for years now. After all, there’s no reason the character shouldn’t be female sometimes, aside from ‘tradition’ – every transformation in the show since it began in 1963 has delivered a new male face. But now, with Peter Capaldi stepping away from the iconic role, and Steven Moffat stepping away from producing the show, a fresh approach has been revealed. The Doctor will now be played by Jodie Whittaker – and this has predictably drawn some criticism.

Former Doctor Who showrunner, Russell T. Davies – also known as the man who made this new era of the series possible, having rebooted it back in 2005 – has no time for such criticisms, though. He’s done with the vocal objections of a tiny minority of sexists – as he explained to Frank Skinner on the Absolute Radio podcast. »

Hilarious New Trailer For Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle Flips The Tables

8 hours ago

Four high school friends are whisked on an epic, downright hilarious adventure in the second full trailer for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Sony Pictures and Jake Kasdan’s star-studded sequel that’s 22 years in the making.

Gunning for a new and fresh take on Chris Van Allsburg’s literary classic, Welcome to the Jungle drags the world of Jumanji into the present day, and essentially swaps out the old for the new. Gone are Alan Parrish – Robin Williams’ man-child will still be honored in Kasdan’s continuation – and the iconic board game, with Jumanji now taking the form of a dusty old video game that manages to suck our four heroes into a chaotic world of rampaging elephants and jungle traps. And that’s where our story begins.

But to keep audiences on their toes, Welcome to the Jungle takes a leaf out of Tron‘s book and places »

Rip Hunter Rocks A New ‘Do In First Legends Of Tomorrow Season 3 Images

9 hours ago

With the “super season” now being just three weeks away from officially commencing, The CW is finally rolling out more substantial teasers for each respective Arrowverse series. Not long ago, we were treated to another trailer for Legends of Tomorrow, with the latest surprise coming in the form of a new batch of images.

From what we can tell, time is still “broken” in the scenes these photos were culled from. We say that because there’s really no other explanation as to why Julius Caesar would be confronting Heat Wave on the beach. Normally, you wouldn’t see such a thing unless you were seriously inebriated – something not unfamiliar to Mick Rory – but in this case, we’re inclined to believe that he’s sober enough. Thus, it’s probably safe to assume that time is quite out of joint.

Looks Like Warner Hosted A Secret Test Screening Of Joss Whedon’s Justice League

9 hours ago

With Justice League now beginning to round the final corner, earlier this week Warner Bros. hosted a super-secret screening of the ensemble movie, offering a select pool of lucky fans the chance to clock eyes on an “assembly cut” prior to release.

Bound by non-disclosure agreements, any Tweets containing reactions or knee-jerk reviews have since been deleted, as the Powers That Be clamp down on potential spoilers. Those Twitter posts that survived the cull, as you’ll see below, merely confirm that the screening took place, with one fan reportedly summarizing his thoughts with, “ehh, it’s fine?” Another lucky viewer Tweeted: “Last tweet got deleted. Let’s hope they don’t delete this one. I saw #JusticeLeague 2 nights ago, I can’t say anything except but Wow! #Superb.”

But let’s not get caught up in a potential game of Chinese whispers; Warner Bros. has clearly rolled out red »
