Guardians of the Galaxy 2 - Mantis

Filmmakers, stars, and studio marketing teams will bend over backward to keep a film’s secrets, but the tie-in toy line will give them away every time. Okay, so “every time” is an exaggeration. But as we’ve seen recently with everything from Power Rangers to Beauty and the Beast, toys can be a rich source of information about highly anticipated and closely guarded upcoming releases.

Like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. While we’ve known for a while that Elizabeth Debicki‘s Ayesha would be the villain, the first trailer didn’t show her at all. So our first look at the character comes today in the form of a Funko Pint Size Heroes toy. Check it out below.  Read More »

Time Traveling Archie Movie

In case you haven’t heard, the classic comic character Archie is coming to The CW in the form of a TV series called Riverdale. It’s a modern, dark approach to the source material that has Archie (KJ Apa), Betty (Lili Reinhart), Veronica (Camila Mendes), Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse), Josie (Ashleigh Murray) and more dealing with a death in their small town, secrets waiting to be discovered, and something dark and dangerous biding its time.

It’s a far cry from the original Archie comics that fans are used to, but there was a brief moment when the pitch for a project adapting these characters for the screen would have been drastically different. Believe it or not, there was a time when Riverdale could have been a movie starring Louis C.K. as a time-traveling Archie.

Justice League

The DC Extended Universe has been off to a rocky start, to put it mildly. Yes, their films have made money, but the audience reactions to Man of SteelBatman v Superman, and Suicide Squad have been divided at best. Still, they’ve got a few promising projects coming up on the slate including Justice League and The Batman. And those involved with the franchise would really, really like you to know that they’re going to be good.

In a new interview, Aquaman screenwriter Will Beall talks up Justice League as “much more fun” and “much poppier” than its somber predecessors. Meanwhile, Ben Affleck reassures fans that, yes, he’s still planning to direct The BatmanRead More »

legion promos

A batch of new Legion promos have been released, meaning we get to see more of actor Dan Stevens looking bug-eyed, paranoid, and all-around awesome in FX’s upcoming series. The star of The Guest and Disney’s Beauty and the Beast remake is a considerable part of Legion‘s appeal. Yes, it’s run by Fargo creator Noah Hawley, which is reason enough to check out the series, but Stevens is one of those actors you want to keep an eye on. Since he continues to impress in a wide variety of roles, we’re excited to see him bring his versatility to FX’s new show.

Below, watch some new Legion promos.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 - Star-Lord Father

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has already resolved one big mystery left over from the last film — the question of Star-Lord’s true parentage. As we learned over the summer, Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) is actually the son of Ego, the Living Planet, played by national treasure Kurt Russell. But while discovering you’re descended from an actual planet is the kind of thing that could only happen in the Marvel universe, director James Gunn indicates the father-son relationship will be rooted in more grounded emotions.
