Game of Thrones season 8 hype

Actors drumming up hype for the projects they’re involved with is a run-of-the-mill occurrence in Hollywood – so much so that we often don’t even bother writing about many of those kinds of quotes. But every once in a while, someone offers up a claim so ridiculous, so outrageous, and so sensational that we simply can’t ignore it. Today, that person is former Game of Thrones actor (and current Justice League star) Jason Momoa.

Momoa recently visited the production of Game of Thrones season 8 in Belfast, Ireland, and after his trip, he says the upcoming season of the show is “going to be the greatest thing that’s ever aired on TV.” And if that wasn’t enough, there’s much more where that came from. Check out his full quote below.

Aquaman underwater scenes

Your mileage may vary on whether you enjoyed Jason Momoa‘s cinematic interpretation of Aquaman in Warner Bros.’ Justice League, but even if you dug his portrayal, it’s not controversial to say that his limited time underwater in that film was a bit underwhelming. But don’t let that scare you off from the character’s upcoming solo movie: director James Wan has revealed that his Aquaman underwater scenes are going to be different than the air bubble approach we saw in Zack Snyder’s movie.

Justice League reshoots

Justice League is now playing in theaters everywhere and if you went into the film hoping to see all of the flashy stuff on display in the multiple trailers, you might’ve been disappointed. There are numerous moments from the previews that aren’t in the final film, which, when combined with talk of the extensive reshoots that happened after Zack Snyder left and Joss Whedon took over, implies there’s a drastically version of the film floating around out there. In the wake of the film’s release, even more details about Justice League reshoots have surfaced.

Justice League Spoiler Review

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: the superhero team-up extravaganza Justice League.)

You can’t save the world alone, and saving the DCEU might be even more of a challenge. After Warner Bros. and DC finally found their footing with Wonder Woman, the superhero series trips over its own cape with the cacophonous Justice League. What should be a moment of triumph for the series – the long-awaited team-up of their signature heroes – instead feels like an uncomfortable obligation. It’s like a weekend visit to grandma – you don’t want to do it, there’s other things you’d really like to be doing, but you figure you make the effort because she’ll be gone soon.

As of this writing, Justice League is underperforming even more than anyone expected. The film failed to break the coveted $100 million domestic weekend opening gross, which will no doubt lead to a string of think-pieces pondering, “What went wrong with the DCEU?” With all this in mind, it almost feels cruel to hammer Justice League more. But this is the task at hand. I come not to praise Justice League, nor do I come to bury it. Instead, I want to try to get to the heart of what makes it tick. This is a garish, visually hideous work of pop art, yet I firmly believe it has its heart in the right place: it wants to tell a fun, entertaining story about a group of people coming together to solve a huge problem, and growing as they do so. But what it wants to do, and what it actually does are two very different things. This Justice League spoiler review will highlight what works best in the film, and what doesn’t work at all.

Spoilers follow, obviously.

man of steel aquaman

The world (or ocean) of the DC Extended Universe may be a lot smaller than we anticipated. The shared cinematic universe was born fairly recently, launched from Zack Snyder‘s 2013 Superman origin movie, Man of Steel. But it turns out Snyder was laying the ground for Justice League and beyond, with a secret (so secret you don’t even see it!) cameo from none other than Jason Momoa‘s Aquaman.

Justice League post-credits scene

Warner Bros. and DC Films’ game plan seems to have been to differentiate themselves from Marvel Studios while still attempting to capitalize on that interconnected cinematic universe business model. One identifiable aspect of Marvel Studios movies is their post-credits scenes; DC avoided those for Man of SteelBatman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Wonder Woman, but compromised with a mid-credits scene in Suicide Squad.

Now, actor Jason Momoa has revealed that the studio is embracing a full-on post-credits scene in their most high-profile film to date, Justice League. Read about that, as well as Momoa’s comments about his character of Aquaman, below.

Justice League tv spot

If you thought the previous DCEU films were too dark, you’re in luck: there’s a new goofy Justice League TV spot that’s brimming with silliness! Ezra Miller‘s Flash is front and center here, and somehow Batman’s voice has gotten even worse. This is a truly strange spot, and if Justice League itself turns out to be this strange, it will certainly be the best DCEU film to date. Watch the Justice League TV spot below.
