But that’s not all, because Hot Toys is also relasing a Batmobile that will fit the Batman Begins figure inside of it. Check them out below. Read More »

Bale will be playing Gorr the Butcher, an alien creature who sets out on a mission to kill as many gods as he can.

Chris Pratt, the internet’s current least favorite Chris, is joining the much more beloved Chris Hemsworth in Thor: Love and Thunder. Pratt’s Star-Lord/Peter Quill will appear in the Taika Waititi sequel, which makes sense since Avengers: Endgame concluded with Thor jetting off with the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Over the past six years, Margot Robbie has become one of the most coveted actresses in Hollywood. During that time, she’s starred in over a dozen movies, two of them from filmmakers Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino (The Wolf of Wall Street and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood), and another two that earned her Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations (Bombshell and I, Tonya).
The same rise in success can be seen in Michael B. Jordan, who started off with roles in TV shows ranging from The Wire to All My Children and Friday Night Lights, but has only gained fame on the big screen in the past six years. Chronicle was his breakthrough role, Fruitvale Station got him indie cred, he became a movie star in Creed, and Black Panther made him an even bigger deal.
Now they both could be getting a boost for the next awards season with each of them taking roles in the next movie from American Hustle director David O. Russell. Read More »
