Just yesterday, the final trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse arrived, and along with all the destruction that comes from the film’s title villain played by Oscar Isaac was a little tease of the return of Wolverine, played by Hugh Jackman. When we last left Wolverine in X-Men: Days of Future Past, he was being rescued from drowning by Mystique in disguise as William Stryker, and many fans have been wondering where we’ll find him in this sequel.
The X-Men: Apoclaypse trailer offered a little hint of the clawed, healing mutant helping out the young versions of Cyclops and Jean Grey take down some bad guys. Now director Bryan Singer talks a little more about what we can expect from his place in the movie, which he says features “the birth of a new direction.” Find out more about Wolverine in X-Men Apocalypse after the jump.

Although I didn’t care for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I’m approaching Zack Snyder’s upcoming Justice League movie with a clean slate. Mistakes were made for sure, but I know that Snyder is capable of making superhero movies that I can whole-heartedly embrace. I still like Man of Steel, after all. Plus, getting negative about a film that literally just began filming serves absolutely no one. I just want to wait and see. I just want to focus on the positive for now.
And there are few things as positive as J.K. Simmons, the extraordinary character actor who spent years being one of the most beloved “that guys” in modern cinema before winning an Oscar for Whiplash. Last month, Simmons joined the cast of Justice League as Commissioner James Gordon, Batman’s longtime ally in his war on Gotham City’s criminal underworld. Now, Simmons spoke out about his role in the film and how he fully expects to appear in more DC films.

For many months, the worst kept secret in Hollywood was that Captain America: Civil War featured the new Spider-Man. He was never mentioned in press releases. He didn’t show up in the first trailer. Heck, the production somehow managed to keep the paparazzi at bay and not even one single blurry set photo made its way online. So when Tom Holland‘s Spidey popped up for quick hello in the latest preview, it was a genuine (and pleasant) surprise. Sure, everyone knew he was coming, but the grand reveal managed to arrive intact. Marvel and Disney played the long game with this one, distracting us with the dozen other heroes in the movie, and they came out on top.
But now that the cat is out of the bag, the marketing can play a little fast and loose with the Spider-Man material, which is why a brand new TV spot is apparently allowed to showcase additional footage of the webslinger in action.

Preacher‘s road to the screen has been a long and rocky one, full of dead ends and false starts over years and years. But Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Sam Catlin finally made it happen at AMC, and as of now we’re less than a month away from the show’s premiere.
Based on the comic by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, Preacher follows a preacher who develops some very unusual powers. Together with his ex-girlfriend and a new vampire friend, he sets out on a journey that brings him in contact with all manner of characters from Heaven and Hell. Yup, it’s just as weird and wild as it sounds. AMC has released a whole bunch of new Preacher photos to get you pumped up for the adaptation, and you can see them below.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Nathan Fillion and James Gunn are good friends, so fans of the Firefly and Castle star were hoping that the director might give the actor a role in Guardians of the Galaxy. However, it appears that neither Gunn nor Fillion wanted to give him a role that would preclude him from having a more significant part in the Marvel cinematic universe, because he ended up having a more secret cameo as the voice of the blue alien who gets his sinuses cleared out by Groot in the Kyln.
In the case of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 though, it appears as if Fillion may have a more significant role. Or at the very least, it’s a role where we’ll see his face on screen. However, explaining the role of Nathan Fillion in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 dives into some potential spoiler territory so continue at your own risk. Read More »

Check out the latest X-Men: Apocalypse trailer, featuring the first little peek at Wolverine, below.

As you probably know by now, the catalyst for Captain America: Civil War is the introduction of the Sokovia Accords, which demand that The Avengers have some kind of government oversight by the United Nations after their heroic actions have resulted in dozens of deaths around the world.
Now a viral video has arrived in the form of a news broadcast featuring Christine Everhart. If that name sounds familiar, that’s because the character first appeared in Iron Man as a reporter trying to interview Tony Stark in Las Vegas. Leslie Bibb (Talladega Nights) played the character who also ended up in bed with the billionaire, playboy and philanthropist only to later have an awkward encounter with him in Iron Man 2.
