deadshot batman

Did you think Warner Bros. was going to cast Will Smith as a major character in their burgeoning DC superhero movie universe and then only put him in one movie? Even if Suicide Squad doesn’t light fandom on fire (which seems unlikely at this point), we’ll probably see a great deal of Smith’s Deadshot in the years ahead. After all, the DC universe’s greatest marksman is a strong utility player – you can slide him into just about any story, starring any superhero, and he’ll function as a worthwhile adversary and/or reluctant ally.

So perhaps it isn’t too surprising that new rumors suggest that Smith’s Deadshot will share the screen with Ben Affleck‘s Batman in the latter’s first solo film, which is due out in sometime in 2018. Or 2019. No one seems to know. In any case, Warner Bros. may have realized that Affleck and Smith sharing the screen was too huge of an opportunity to pass up and took the appropriate steps.

Hit the jump for more that Deadshot Batman rumors.

avengers 2 deleted scene

I’ve gone the record many times that I’m a big fan of Avengers: Age of Ultron and will do so again here: I am a big fan of Avengers: Age of Ultron. I like its weird energy and how jam-packed with stuff it is. I love the banter between these characters and I love watching their relationships put through the grinder. Marvel’s name may be above the title, but this is a Joss Whedon movie thorough and through – you come out of this shiny, colorful, pop culture extravaganza feeling a little roughed up. It’s his way.

Any yet, I’ll be the first to admit that it feels like there are pieces of the story missing and important beats excised. This is especially evident on repeat viewings, where you can really start to see unnecessary, studio-mandated scenes (like Thor’s dumb cave adventure) butting heads with the stuff that actually matters. A new deleted scene from the film has been revealed as part of that new Marvel Cinematic Universe phase 2 box set and it feels like the kind of thing that really should have been in the final cut… and not just because it’s a fight scene between Thor and Vision.

infinity war defenders

The upcoming two-part Avengers: Infinity War will represent the grand climax of the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far. All of the various story threads and all of the disparate characters established across multiple films will all come together to battle Thanos, the “Mad Titan” who has been watching from the sidelines since the events of The Avengers. Expect to see old standbys like Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and the Hulk team up with upcoming characters like Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel, and Black Panther. Even the Guardians of the Galaxy are going to show up. These movies will encompass just about everyone.

Well, everyone who has appeared on the big screen. Fans hoping to see characters from the television corner of the MCU shouldn’t get their hopes up and Infinity War co-director Anthony Russo is already trying to cushion the blow. Read his Infinity War Defenders comments after the jump.

harrow county tv series

Superheroes may be ruling screens both big and small these days, but caped crusaders and masked avengers are playing second fiddle to the little guys at your local comic book shop. While Marvel and DC continue to churn out reliably entertaining work, it’s the niche publishers like Image, Boom!, and Dark Horse that are delivering the real goods. While some truly great independent and creator-owned comics are making their way through film and television development right now, Syfy has acquired the rights to a series that deserves your complete and undivided attention.

That series is Harrow County and it is the best horror comic books being published in 2015. If it’s half as good in 2016, it’ll still be one of the most clever and spooky and oddly charming comics I’ve ever had the pleasure to read. Hit the jump for more details on the Harrow County TV series.

black panther civil war

We’ve known for well over a year now that Captain America: Civil War would feature the Marvel Cinematic Universe debut of Black Panther and that he would be played by Chadwick Boseman. However, we have only been able to speculate on how this character, a prince from the fictional African nation of Wakanda who has inherited the powers and abilities of his royal family, fits into the quickly escalating beef between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark.

Now, the details have been revealed! It turns out that Black Panther, a.k.a. T’Challa, is a neutral party with his own interests… and that his allegiance may shift between Team Iron Man and Team Captain America, depending on who will best help him achieve his goals.

Hit the jump for all of the necessary Black Panther Civil War details.

original star-lord design

If we were to rank all of the major Hollywood filmmakers based on how good they are with social media, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn would rank somewhere near the top. Whether he’s interacting with fans or shooting down rumors, Gunn uses Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram better than just about anyone who is making massively expensive blockbuster movies.

From time to time, he also shares behind-the-scenes photos and anecdotes from set. In today’s edition of “James Gunn Was Interesting On Social Media Again,” we have a look at some early designs of Star-Lord’s mask. Although certainly recognizable as the headgear Chris Pratt‘s Peter Quill wears during Guardians of the Galaxy, there are enough little differences to give you newfound appreciation for how tiny little details make or break a superhero costume. Check out the original Star-Lord design for yourself after the jump.

Batman v Superman Trailer Tease

If you’re one of those poor schmucks who has been consistently watching Gotham out of obligation and/or the desperate desire to have DC characters of any kind in your life, you were thrown a bone tonight. New footage from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice premiered, simultaneously rewarding your admirable commitment to the larger Batman mythos and reminding you that Gotham doesn’t feature Batman at all and making you question why you’ve been enduring it.

Anyway, everyone else can just watch the new Batman v Superman footage after the jump. No Gotham required! We promise!
