robin weapon

Zack Snyder‘s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice offered a smorgasbord of reasons to get riled up and annoyed and angry, from the inane and nonsensical plot to the cinematic Doomsday who looked like a third rate cave troll to a Superman who was an all-powerful stick-in-the-mud. But now, nearly a month after its release, one aspect irritates me like no other: the portrayal of Batman as a remorseless killer who dispatches his enemies with machine guns and explosives.

While some fans have speculated that this iteration of Batman has been driven to murder after years of psychologically agonizing crimefighting, a piece of concept art nips this theory in the bud while also dragging (the deceased) Robin through the mud. It turns out that Robin’s weapon on display in the Batcave isn’t what you think it is.

terminator 6

Here’s how you know the Terminator series is in a rut: Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Terminator: Salvation, and Terminator Genisys were all announced as the first film in a new trilogy, only for those direct sequels to never materialize. Each of the past three sequels in this once-untouchable series has been an attempt to reboot the whole thing, to build the foundation for the future of the franchise, only for the entire enterprise to end in tears.

Terminator Genisys was critically reviled, shrugged off by audiences, and a box office disappointment, grossing less than $100 million at the domestic box office. And despite a major cliffhanger and the promise of more films to follow, star Emilia Clarke says she will not be back for any future sequels.

Jason Bourne Trailer

You know his name, and now he remembers everything. What’s left for Jason Bourne to do? We’ll find out this summer when the fourth chapter of the franchise (fifth if you count The Bourne Legacy) that began with The Bourne Identity continues the path of the Treadstone asset who lost his memory, gained it back, and waged a war against those who turned him into a weapon.

However, a new Jason Bourne trailer shows us that Matt Damon‘s character is going to have to come to terms with the things he’s done. After all, he volunteered for the job to begin with, and now he’s caught up in more danger and intrigue again, this time taking the action to Greece, Las Vegas and more. Read More »

Rumor: ‘Wolverine 3’ to Introduce X-23?

X-23

Wolverine 3 will be the final hurrah for X-Men star Hugh Jackman, who’s been playing the mutant superhero since 2000. He’s already survived through five X-Men movies and two solo spinoff, and logged time with both the original cast and their younger counterparts. Now Jackman wants to hang up the claws, and his Wolverine certainly deserves to ride off into the sunset and live happily ever after.

But while Wolverine 3 marks an end for Jackman’s version of the character, it’ll be a brand-new beginning for another mutant. Rumor has it Wolverine 3 will mark the big-screen debut of X-23, a popular comic book character who’s got more than a few things in common with the cantankerous Canadian himself.  Read More »

star wars billboard

It is a period of civil war. Star Wars purists, striking from a hidden internet, have yet to win a victory against the powerful Disney Empire. During a recent exasperated Twitter thread, purists managed to work themselves into a fit of righteous anger over the Star Wars story group, a team of creative-types with enough power to destroy an entire continuity. With nothing better to do with their lives or their time, a group of purists raised money to construct a billboard, a billboard that can save the original expanded universe and restore a bunch of books to the galaxy…

Or maybe not. But a bunch of Star Wars fans did raise a couple thousand dollars to build a billboard demanding that Lucasfilm continue the expanded universe that was abandoned when Disney bought Lucasfilm. This is a thing that did occur.
