Kenneth Choi, who played Howling Commando Jim Morita in Captain America: The First Avenger, has joined Spider-Man: Homecoming in a separate and apparently unrelated role. He won’t be the first actor to play two different characters within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, though it’s still somewhat uncommon. Read More »

Late last year, we heard that an R-rated animated adaptation of Alan Moore and artist Brian Bolland‘s 1988 The Killing Joke was in the works, which almost sounded too good to be true. A month and a half ago the story was confirmed: This interpretation of Moore’s classic comic book is indeed rated R.
Directed by Sam Liu (co-director of Batman: Year One), Batman: The Killing Joke will be released on Blu-ray this August, but a few days prior you may have the opportunity to see it in a select theater. Below, learn more about The Killing Joke theatrical release.

Phase Three of Marvel’s cinematic universe only just kicked off earlier this summer with the arrival of Captain America: Civil War. That means we have two years and a handful of new Marvel movies before we get to see where all this is leading in The Avengers: Infinity War. The first part of the two-part sequel arrives in 2018 with the second part following in 2019. But Josh Brolin, the man who plays the mad titan Thanos, already knows the whole story.
In a new interview, Josh Brolin revealed that he has heard the entire story for The Avengers: Infinity War, and the good news is that he said he was “blown away” and he got “goose pimples” while listening to it unfold. Read More »
J.K. Simmons is one of our finest living actors, the kind of performer who can vanish into any kind of role and elevate bad movies through sheer force of will. While he’s played his fair share of loving fathers and desk jockeys and Spider-Man-hating news editors, it should be mentioned that Simmons is also a downright terrifying physical specimen who could probably twist your head clean off your shoulders should you cross him. Just look at image above from his Oscar-winning turn in 2014’s great Whiplash. There’s a reason he wears tight t-shirts throughout that entire movie. The man is ripped.
And now that he’s re-entering the comic book movie world with his role as Commissioner Gordon in Justice League, Simmons has seemingly decided to look the part. New photos from his personal trainer have arrived online and they reveal a 61-year old character actor who could probably kill you with a single finger.

There have been rumblings of a Justice League Dark movie in the works since as far back as 2012. Director Guillermo del Toro was once supposed to be behind the camera for an assembly of DC Comics characters such as Constantine, Swamp Thing, Jason Blood/The Demon, Madame Xanadu and Anton Arcane, but he ended up falling away from the project nearly a year ago. More recently, some possible casting and director contenders have emerged, but we haven’t heard anything since last fall.
Now fans waiting for a Justice League Dark movie can pass their time with a forthcoming straight-to-DVD animated movie that’s in the works according to the supplemental features on the forthcoming home video release of the animated adaptation of Batman: The Killing Joke. Find out more about the Justice League Dark animated movie below. Read More »
