While the Avengers from Marvel Studios will likely rule the big screen for years to come, a different avenger is lying in wait and hoping to once again make a splash of his own.
Legendary Pictures has acquired the feature film rights to The Toxic Avenger and are planning a remake of the trashy 1984 Troma cult classic, which follows a nerdy kid who falls into a vat of toxic waste and emerges as a mutated superhero. Read More »
Birds of Prey‘s full title just rolls off the tongue.

This is how you remind audiences that a PG-13 cut of Deadpool 2 is coming to theaters this week in the form of Once Upon a Deadpool. We’ve already seen a good amount of the back and forth between Deadpool and Fred Savage, reprising his childhood role from The Princess Bride, but a new promo features the longest scene yet between these two.
For those who don’t know, Ryan Reynolds is fiercely Canadian, and it looks like he’s bringing some of that maple pride to the Deadpool franchise because he puts up one hell of a defense for one of Canada’s most reviled exports: the rock band Nickelback. After Fred Savage makes an off-handed comment about Marvel movies licensed by 20th Century Fox being like The Beatles produced by Nickelback, Deadpool just can’t contain his frustration and he goes on quite the rant.

Voice acting is an undervalued profession, one that we don’t get to see much of unless it’s a star-studded affair like Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
But the newly released Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse b-roll footage gives us a peek behind the curtain, where stars Shameik Moore, Hailee Steinfeld, Jake Johnson, Liev Schreiber, Brian Tyree Henry, Luna Lauren, John Mulaney, and Kimiko Glenn apparently act in full hair and make-up. But no one is as extra as Nicolas Cage, who shows up in a full suit and gives his whole being into voicing his character.
