If it’s been a while since you’ve seen Tim Burton’s Batman from 1989, you might not remember that Billy Dee Williams played District Attorney Harvey Dent. In fact, the original plan for Batman Forever before Joel Schumacher took over for Tim Burton was to have the Star Wars star reprise his role and become the Gotham City villain Two-Face. Sadly, we never got to see that happen. But that’s about to change.
The LEGO Batman Movie is bringing the building block version of the Dark Knight back to the big screen, and after seeing the trailers, it’s one of our most anticipated movies of 2017. Now we have even more reason to be excited because Billy Dee Williams will be voicing Two-Face in the animated movie. Read More »
In the Marvel cinematic universe, everything is leading to The Avengers: Infinity War. Right now, the Mad Titan known as Thanos doesn’t have any of the Infinity Stones in his possession that will lead to this massive conflict, but he’ll inevitably collect them, fit them snugly in the Infinity Gauntlet, and wreak havoc on Earth and maybe even the other realms.
However, as of now we’ve only seen five of the six Infinity Stones. There’s the Space Stone, which is inside the Tesseract and now in Odin’s vault; the Reality Stone, which is presumed to still be in The Collector’s museum after being handed over by Sif and Volstagg; the Mind Stone, which is on Vision’s forehead after being removed from Loki’s scepter, the Power Stone, which is locked up at Nova Corps headquarters; and the Time Stone, which is contained in the Eye of Agamotto at Kamar Taj.
So where could the Soul Stone be? One fan theory has an an interesting idea of where we might find the final Infinity Stone. Read More »

A murder mystery, a buff Archie, and plenty of teen angst are what a new Riverdale promo is selling. The CW’s take on the Archie comics is a present-day, slightly melodramatic look at Archie and the gang in their hometown of Riverdale, a place harboring a lot of dark secrets.

Just before Doctor Strange arrived in theaters, we were treated to the first sneak peek of footage from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. It was nowhere near the amount of footage that was shown at San Diego Comic-Con earlier this summer, but it was a solid tease of the sequel that we’ll certainly see more of in the near future.
Now, just for fun, a LEGO master builder and Marvel fan has recreated the entire Guardians of the Galaxy 2 sneak peek in LEGO form. There wasn’t anything particularly difficult to recreate in this first batch of footage, but that doesn’t make his efforts any less impressive and admirable.
