Last week, it was revealed that Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator and The Avengers director Joss Whedon is going to write and direct a Batgirl movie. It feels like a pitch-perfect match of storyteller and character – Whedon’s voice feels perfectly honed to tell the story of Barbara Gordon, the daughter of the Gotham City police commissioner who decides to take her father’s war on crime to the next level.
Of course, it’s still early days yet. Whedon has not cast his Batgirl. And that’s why we’re here. We have 17 suggestions.

Reconnecting with old friends can be a tricky proposition even under the best of circumstances, but the best frenemies at the heart of Always Shine aren’t in the best of circumstances. Mackenzie Davis and Caitlin FitzGerald lead Sophia Takal‘s psychological thriller as a pair of longtime pals who head up to Big Sur together in an effort to repair their bond. But the trip quickly turns toxic as the women are beset by jealousy and unhappiness, and begin to turn on each other.
Always Shine earned high praise at its Tribeca Film Festival world premiere, with Davis even scooped up a Best Actress award for her work. If you’ve ever watched Halt and Catch Fire or Masters of Sex and wished Davis and FitzGerald, respectively, had even more to do, this definitely looks like a movie worth checking out. Watch the Always Shine trailer below. Read More »

It’s been nearly two years since the last episode of Black Mirror, Charlie Brooker‘s tech dystopia anthology series, and over three years since the last proper full season aired. Naturally, then, news that Netflix had commissioned 12 more episodes was met with a combination of excitement and trepidation.
On the one hand, Black Mirror is second to none when it comes to chronicling the way humanity and technology intersect in 2016. On the other, we’ve seen tons of shows renewed after extended hiatuses, only to return as shells of their former selves. Could the third season of Black Mirror live up to the greatness of the first two? Based on the two episodes that screened at TIFF, “San Junipero” and “Nosedive,” the answer seems to be yes.

Netflix announced last year that it was picking up Black Mirror for a third season, and last month revealed that the new episodes would premiere this fall. But as we say in the age of Instagram and Facebook, pics or it didn’t happen. So showrunner Charlie Brooker has now shared the first Black Mirror season 3 images for us to enjoy. And some of them look surprisingly… retro? The series has thrown some pretty shocking twists at us over the years, but even we did not see a 1980s episode coming.
That’s Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Mackenzie Davis up there in those fetching ’80s fashions, and still other photos offer our first look at Bryce Dallas Howard in an episode directed by Joe Wright. Check out the new Black Mirror season 3 images below. Read More »
In the months since Deadpool hit theaters earlier this year, details have been pretty sparse on the development of Deadpool 2. The sequel is definitely in development and the first draft of the script was expected to be done very soon as of the end of June. But even without any story details, the scene at the end of the credits of the first movie keyed us in to the introduction of the character Cable, and plenty of names have been thrown into the ring as candidates. Now one more has entered the mix.
Bloodline and Super 8 star Kyle Chandler has reportedly been mentioned in conjunction with the role of Cable as Deadpool 2 has been developing, though it doesn’t sound like he’s officially in negotiations to take the role just yet. Find out more about the Deadpool 2 Cable casting after the jump. Read More »

Several years ago we reported on a Black List script by Oren Uziel called The Kitchen Sink, a horror-sci-fi-comedy mashup that combined vampires, zombies, and aliens. Jonah Hill was originally set to direct, and then Robbie Pickering. A promising cast (including Bob Odenkirk and Patton Oswalt) was assembled, and then the updates slowed down and eventually the project fell off our radar completely.
But it’s back now, in finished form under a new title: Freaks of Nature. And it’s hitting theaters in just two weeks, so Sony has finally put out a first trailer. Nicholas Braun, Mackenzie Davis, Josh Fadem, Ed Westwick, Vanessa Hudgens, Joan Cusack, Keegan-Michael Key, and Denis Leary star. Watch the Freaks of Nature red-band trailer after the jump.
