In 2020 word broke that Micheal Keaton would be taking up the cape and cowl and playing Batman once again for The Flash. Then just last month Keaton said his involvement with the film wasn’t a done deal, and there was a chance he might not appear after all. Now it’s time to put all this to rest, as it’s been confirmed once and for all that Keaton’s Dark Knight will be in The Flash, marking his first return to the iconic role in nearly 30 years.

Batman fans went crazy when news surfaced that Michael Keaton would be returning as the Caped Crusader in The Flash, which would have marked the first of several movies that would bring back Tim Burton’s version of The Dark Knight. But it might be time to get that excitement in check, because according to the Beetlejuice star himself, scheduling and the lingering concern of COVID-19 may keep the actor from closing a deal.

Is Zack Snyder’s Justice League a superhero movie disguised as a fantasy epic, or a fantasy flick cosplaying as a superhero saga? The answer seems to be somewhere in the middle. One thing is for certain: Zack Snyder was not trying to make just another comic book sequel when he set out to make Justice League. After leaving the project only to see so much of his work reshot by Joss Whedon, Snyder has returned to reassemble the movie he originally intended to make. The end result is more akin to The Lord of the Rings than Batman v Superman – a film about humans and fantastical creatures from various kingdoms joining forces to fight against an ancient, all-powerful evil that threatens to plunge the world into darkness.

It’s official…again. The Flash will feature Kiersey Clemons (Hearts Beat Loud, Sweetheart) as Iris West, love interest to Ezra Miller‘s Barry Allen/The Flash. Clemons played the part in a deleted scene from Justice League, and she was initially cast to reprise the role in a solo Flash movie back in 2016. Since then, though, The Flash has gone through some changes, shuffling directors and release dates. As a result of these changes, Clemons was no longer attached to the pic – but now she’s closed a deal to take on the role in the film being directed by Andy Muschietti.

I am a fan of all things Stephen King, so it gives me no pleasure to tell you that The Stand, the upcoming CBS All Access miniseries based on King’s massive apocalyptic novel, looks kind of blah. To be fair, I haven’t seen it yet, and I am hoping for the best! But every bit of promotional material released in anticipation of the upcoming premiere has been underwhelming. Case in point: new The Stand images arrived today, and they’re either bland or downright silly, depending on which image you’re looking at.

Amazon Prime is turning the Skybound/Image comic book series Invincible by Robert Kirkman into an animated series that will arrive next year. Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead) stars as 17-year old Mark Grayson, who just so happens to be the son of the most powerful superhero on the planet, Omni-Man (J.K. Simmons). As he begins to discover his own superpowers, he learns that his father may not be the clean-cut superhero that he seems to be.
The first Invincible trailer arrived earlier this year along with an impressive roster of voice talent. But not all of the cast members had been revealed, because Brazil’s 2020 CCXP virtual convention revealed a handful of new cast members, including Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali (Moonlight), Jon Hamm (Mad Men), Clancy Brown (The Shawshank Redemption), Djimon Hounsou (Gladiator) and more. Check out the full Invincible voice cast and find out who they’re playing below. Read More »
Here’s a surprise: you know that upcoming miniseries adaptation of The Stand? The one that premieres next month? Well, it turns out that Ezra Miller has a part in it, and it’s been kept a secret all this time. Miller is playing The Trashcan Man, a schizophrenic pyromaniac who is drawn towards Randall Flagg, the evil supernatural figure who rises up in the wake of an apocalyptic plague. Matt Frewer played the character in the 1994 miniseries adaptation of the Stephen King novel.

When news of Zack Snyder‘s cut of Justice League coming to HBO Max was first announced, it was said that the director wouldn’t be bringing back any cast members to shoot new scenes. But the streaming service changed their mind as we learned back in September that Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, and Ray Fisher would be coming back as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and Cyborg to shoot footage for the director’s cut of the DC Comics superhero movie. That made us think the reshoots would be fairly substantial, but according to Zack Snyder himself, the reshoots will only add four minutes or five minutes of new footage. Read More »
