the Suicide Squad Batman

The instant Warner Bros. announced Jared Leto was playing The Joker in Suicide Squad, the questions began. Many of them were centered on how that character, a character most know solely as a Batman villain, would exist in a film without his counterpart. It turns out – he won’t.

A new scoop from El Mayimbe tells us both that Batman is in Suicide Squad and how, specifically, he plays into the film. If true, it’s very likely a minor, but crucial, spoiler not only about Suicide Squad, but Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice too. Read the Suicide Squad Batman connection below. Read More »

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER

Fresh off of his turn as Howard Stark on ABC’s Agent Carter, Dominic Cooper could be nearing another comic book role. A new rumor claims Cooper is the frontrunner for the lead in Preacher, AMC’s upcoming adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s 1990s comic book series. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are executive producing.

Jared Leto Joker

On the big superhero calendar, both DC and Marvel have major films that start shooting soon. For Marvel, it’s Captain America: Civil War and for DC, it’s David Ayer‘s Suicide Squad. Ayer has been pretty awesome with fans so far, regularly tweeting out teases at the pre-production as well as the transformation of star Jared Leto into the Joker. Not to mention lots of his cast recently had films out so we’ve been hearing lots of little snippets here and there too.

Movie scooper El Mayimbe has also been all over Suicide Squad, dropping three significant pieces of information over the last few days on his Instagram. The latest is the biggest, that Jared Leto’s Joker will be primarily based on the Frank Miller Dark Knight Returns incarnation. There’s more too, including a bit of his situation at the start of the film and links to Batman.

Below, read the latest Jared Leto Joker information as well as potential info on another character in the film and the villains. Read More »

kevin smith mallrats 2

The post Red State Kevin Smith is a workaholic. He’s making movie (Tusk) after movie (Yoga Hosers) and now he may be doing a follow up one of his most beloved.

Thursday, Smith tweeted his upcoming schedule for the next year and a half. Clerks III shoots in May, the Canadian hockey mini-series Hit Somebody shoots in the Fall and Winter, then he makes Moose Jaws in early 2016. The writer/director then dropped this line “But after that? I smell a rat…” Sounds like he might be going back to the mall for a sequel to his cult hit Mallrats.

star wars predictions

Concrete information about the new Star Wars movies is a rare commodity. Right now, we don’t know way more than we do know and that lack of definitive knowledge leads to debate, discussion and arguments. These are happening every day amongst Star Wars fans and will continue until Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens on December 18. Probably beyond, too, since the story won’t end with that film.

With these Star Wars conversations more prevalent than actual information, we decided to have a little fun. We’ve gone against Han Solo’s better judgement and set some simple, Las Vegas odds against 15 questions fans are currently debating. Most are non-spoiler, a few are (clearly marked) spoilers, but all are very much at the center of the current Star Wars conversation. Read More »

Rumor: The New Spider-Man Won’t Be White

Miles Morales

Spider-Man is coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the near future… but Peter Parker might not be. A new rumor claims the next friendly neighborhood webslinger will not be a white man, and will not be Peter Parker. Could we finally get the Miles Morales movie we’ve been waiting for?

Taron Egerton Han Solo

Fans know infinitely more about Star Wars: The Force Awakens than they do the standalone films. For sure, we know Gareth Edwards is directing one that’ll be released in December 2016. Gary Whitta wrote the first draft, Chris Weitz is writing the latest and we think Oscar-nominee Felicity Jones will star. We also think it’ll be about a group of bounty hunters or pirates hired to steal the plans for the Death Star. Emphasis on “think.”

That’s the 2016 film. 2017 will see Rian Johnson’s Star Wars Episode VIII and then 2018 will see the next standalone. We think Josh Trank will direct that film, but rumblings are even that might not be true anymore. As for the subject of the film, it’s mostly speculation.

Which is all preamble to the latest rumor, coming from The Sun newspaper in the UK. They say that second standalone movie will feature a young Han Solo (a rumor we’ve heard for years at this point) and that Taron Egerton, currently starring in Kingsman: The Secret Service, is being eyed for the role.
