When talking about A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night last year, I said that director Ana Lily Amirpour is someone we’re excited to watch going forward. And we’re evidently not the only ones with confidence in her work. Her next film, The Bad Batch, is backed by Megan Ellison and Annapurna Productions, which immediately puts Amirpour in great company. The film already had Jason Momoa as a core member of the cast. And now The Bad Batch cast can announced a bunch of new names, including Jim Carrey and Keanu Reeves. Read More »

Last week’s late-night reveal of Jason Momoa as Aquaman was a shock to many people, including the actor himself. In a new interview, the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice co-star admits that he didn’t think director Zack Snyder was going to reveal his in-costume photo so soon and didn’t find out until right before it went up.
Momoa also discussed his excitement at playing the role and danced around questions about when we’d actually see the character, how much he’s shot, and if he’d already been teased in Man of Steel. Read the latest Jason Momoa Aquaman quotes below. Read More »

Jason Momoa has spent the past several months deflecting Aquaman talk, even though we’ve known since this summer that he’d won the role. But now that DC’s finally made the official announcement he’s finally free to spill the details on his splashy superhero gig.

Everyone knew Jason Momoa was Aquaman. The trades reported it, Zack Snyder talked about the character, and Momoa teased it, but no one would confirm it officially until Warner Bros. made a move. That finally happened last week, when the full DC Comics schedule was revealed. Momoa will play Aquaman in two Justice League movies and in a solo movie due in 2018. He’s also likely to appear in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Because the news is out there, Momoa can finally talk about the role, and he’s got some good things to say. At a recent convention, the Game of Thrones actor talked about respecting the secrecy of the project, the honor he feels in playing the role because of his Polynesian heritage and what he thinks the solo movie might be about.

Jason Momoa is probably only a small part of Wolves, the movie from writer/director David Hayter, but he looks like one of the best parts. Hayter jumps from screenwriter (X-Men, Watchmen) and voice actor (he was Solid Snake in the Metal Gear Solid games until Kiefer Sutherland took over) to feature director. Wolves is about — brace yourself — a bunch of werewolves. Lucas Till plays a high school kid who has some hairy stuff developing in his blood. He hits the road and ends up in a town full of secrets and werewolves. I’m sure there’s a coming of age metaphor here somewhere, but you’ll have to give me a minute to pin it down. In the meantime, watch the Wolves red-band trailer below. Read More »
