We’re less than a month until we get a new movie featuring the Dark Knight in theaters. However, this take on Batman will be far more lighthearted than the one we saw in last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
The LEGO Batman Movie has Will Arnett voicing the building block version of the Caped Crusader, reprising the role he masterfully played in The LEGO Movie a few years ago. It’s one of my most anticipated movies of 2017, and a couple new TV spots show off some new footage from the comedic take on Batman, complete with a showcase of how badass Barbara Gordon, aka Batgirl, is going to be in this movie.

LEGO Batman may have a mansion, plenty of wonderful toys, and a loyal butter, but he has zero friends. The caped crusader keeps busy saving Gotham and doesn’t have the best social skills, so he’s a bit of a loner in desperate need of a pal. The LEGO Batman Movie — which director Chris McKay describes as a cross between Michael Mann and About a Boy — follows Batman on his quest for happiness.

We’re just a little over a month away from the release of The LEGO Batman Movie, giving us the building block version of The Dark Knight, who stole more than a few scenes in The LEGO Movie a few years back. Will Arnett is back in the lead voice role, and quite the assembly of talent surrounds him, playing various characters from Batman’s mythology, some of which we’ve never seen on the big screen before. But a new TV spot focuses on one of Batman’s staple characters, his loyal sidekick Robin.
Michael Cera voices The Boy Wonder, but this version of Batman is just as resistant to working with a partner (or anyone really), simply because he’s afraid of losing anyone who gets close to him again. It’s actually kind of sweet, even if LEGO Batman isn’t a fan of hugs. You’ll see what I mean in a new The LEGO Batman Movie TV spot after the jump. Read More »

Unforgettable belongs to a surprisingly large subgenre: the “Jealous Woman Stalks The Woman Who Stole Her Man” thriller. If you aren’t familiar with this very specific kind of tale, you probably don’t go to movie theaters from January through April or have access to the Lifetime network. Anyway, the first trailer for this movie has arrived and at first glance, it certainly seems like Unforgettable isn’t going to surprise anyone familiar with this particular template. It just depends on how much audiences want to watch Katherine Heigl and Rosario Dawson engage in a battle of quickly escalating wills.

2017 is shaping up to be a very, very good time to be a Marvel fan. Not only are we getting three Marvel movies on the big screen (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Thor: Ragnarok), we’ll get to see three new Marvel shows on Netflix. The first one out that gate will be Iron Fist, starring Game of Thrones‘ Finn Jones as the mystical martial arts master Danny Rand.
A new batch of photos shows off Jones’ take on the comic book character, along with new looks at Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick), Joy Meachum (Jessica Stroup), Ward Meachum (Tom Pelphrey) — and, of course, Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson), who is the glue holding this entire corner of the MCU together. Check out the latest images below. Read More »
Years ago we heard Warner Bros. was interested in making a Justice League Dark movie. Director Guillermo del Toro spent a few years developing the comic book film, but it ultimately ended up in the capable hands of Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow). That movie appears closer to happening than ever, but before we see Constantine, Swamp Thing, Deadman, Zatanna, and Etrigan the Demon in Liman’s film, which Warner Bros. wants to begin shooting early next year, they’ll try to save the world in the next DC Universe Animated Original Movie.

All the individual Defenders like to talk a big game about working alone, but in truth each of them is surrounded by friends and allies and mentors. Over the past couple of days we’ve seen several of those pals added to the supporting lineup of The Defenders, and today we’ve got three more to add to the list.
Marvel and Netflix have officially announced that Jessica Jones‘ Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor) and Daredevil‘s Stick (Scott Glenn) will return for The Defenders — along with the one character who unites all four standalone superheroes, Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson). Read More »

Here’s hoping you had the foresight to clear your calendar for this weekend, because in case you’ve forgotten, we’re just a few days away from the highly anticipated premiere of Luke Cage. And if you really did forget, Netflix has one more Luke Cage trailer here today to remind you.
Following the events of Jessica Jones, Luke heads uptown to hide out in Harlem… only to find himself battling a whole new bunch of baddies, like crime boss Cornell Stokes (Mahershala Ali) and politician Mariah Dillard (Alfre Woodard). Fortunately, he has some new friends, too, including Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson), who first crossed paths with Luke in Jessica Jones, and Misty Knight (Simone Missick). Oh, and Method Man. Turns out the rapper’s a big fan, in the most endearing scene from the Luke Cage trailer. Check out the latest Luke Cage trailer below. Read More »

We’ve already met Netflix’s next leading Marvel hero, thanks to Mike Colter‘s recurring role on Jessica Jones season one. We’re familiar with his powers and his personality, as well as the broad strokes of his backstory. But as we approach the much-anticipated premiere of the Luke Cage solo series, Netflix thinks there are a few more things we ought to know. A new Luke Cage featurette gets us up to speed on the man with unbreakable skin — what he’s been up to since we last saw him, and where he’s headed next in his own show. Read More »

Both Daredevil and Jessica Jones were based in Hell’s Kitchen, but perhaps after realizing that a neighborhood of one square mile can only sustain so many superheroes at a time, Netflix’s next Marvel hero is headed uptown. Luke Cage picks back up with the unbreakable badass we last saw in Jessica Jones. Nowadays, though, his concern is protecting his neighborhood of Harlem.
The show promises to feature a few familiar faces, like Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple and of course Mike Colter as Luke Cage. But he’ll be making some new friends as well, like Simone Missick‘s Misty Knight, and facing off against a number of baddies including Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes (Mahershala Ali), Shades (Theo Rossi), and Mariah Dillard (Alfre Woodard, playing a completely different MCU character from the one we saw in Captain America: Civil War). Watch the latest Luke Cage trailer below.
