In Defense of Jared Leto’s Joker

I know right now, I’ve probably lost a few people based on the title of this article alone. Let’s not make this discussion a fight between who is the better Joker. You can all have your opinions, as I do as well. But, let’s talk for a moment about Jared Leto’s rendition of the character in 2016’s Suicide Squad. This film centered around a group of well-known criminals within the DC Universe who are brought together as an unlikely group of heroes that need to save the world. Surprisingly, the Joker is not the main villain in the film, something

The Rock posts “Jungle Cruise” pic with new co-star…and Jack Whitehall

The busiest man in Hollywood is doing what he always does, work. In this case he is filming his latest entry in what Disney hopes will be their next successful ride-based series that will follow in the footsteps of Pirates of the Caribbean. Disney’s Jungle Cruise will tell the story of a jungle boat captain named Frank (played by The Rock) who takes a brother and sister (Whitehall and Emily Blunt) on a mission through the jungle in search of a tree with reported magical healing powers. As one might expect in a jungle, they encounter many different animals and also encounter

Avengers 4 Reshoots Suggest More Time in Wakanda

Avengers 4 literally couldn’t take any longer to get here. I was ready for the fourth Avengers movie as soon as the credits started rolling for Avengers: Infinity War. With the fourth installment premiering in May 2019 all we can do now is speculate. For instance, there seems to have been some reshoots for the upcoming movie that would suggest that Wakanda is going to play a bigger role for our heroes. If you remember in the last Avengers (how could you forget) the epic showdown took place in Wakanda, which is the birthplace of Black Panther. This is where

Shantel VanSanten Joins Joel Kinnaman for Apple’s Untitled Space Race Series

For me, Shantel VanSanten will always be Patty Spivot from The Flash’s second season. Currently, on the recently canceled show Shooter, VanSanten has another project in her line of sights. Joining Altered Carbon’s Joel Kinnaman, VanSanten has been cast in Apple’s upcoming space race drama series by Ronald D. Moore. This untitled series will take place in a world where the global space race from the 60s never ended. Exploring the possibilities and advances our society could have made, Kinnaman will star as a top NASA astronaut named Edward Baldwin. VanSanten will play Baldwin’s wife, Karen Baldwin. Are you excited

Alan Tudyk Cast as Mr. Nobody in DC Universe’s Doom Patrol

DC Universe’s upcoming Doom Patrol added another recognizable face to its cast. Not too long ago we reported that Brendan Fraser had been cast as Robotman. Now, we can announce that Alan Tudyk has been brought in as Mr. Nobody. Tudyk has had a long list of cinematic achievements, such as Firefly, Dollhouse, and most recently a cameo in Deadpool 2. You probably know him, though; as the pirate in the hilarious movie Dodgeball. My point being, he’s a well-known actor joining a team of other well-known actors. Tudyk will portray Eric Morden aka Mr. Nobody, who is literally transformed

Bautista has been a mainstay in the news and lately it’s been about his ongoing issues with Disney firing director James Gunn.

With word coming down that Guardians 3 is on a definite hold, Dave spoke with Digital Spy saying “It’s kind of a strange situation to be in now where we’ve lost our director for Guardians.

We’re now officially a week away from the premiere of the second season of Netflix’s Iron Fist. What looks like a vast improvement on the first season, Danny Rand’s journey picks up from last we saw him in The Defenders. With Daredevil presumably dead (though we know he isn’t), Danny must take up the mantle of protector of the city. From what we saw in Luke Cage season two, Luke’s got Harlem and it’s up to the Iron Fist to defend lower Manhattan. Pulled from SYFY Wire, we can see some juicy tidbits of what to expect from season two.
