dune sequel

There’s a lot of sandy ground to cover with Dune, and one movie might not cut it. Director Denis Villeneuve‘s star-studded Dune adaptation is currently filming, but will there be more to come? Villeneuve has hinted in the past that he’d like to make more than one film to bring Frank Herbert’s sci-fi epic to life, and as of now, that seems to be the plan. In a new interview, Legendary CEO Joshua Grode confirms that at least one Dune sequel is being planned – although that could change.

Dune cast Jason Momoa

This is starting to get ridiculous. Denis Villeneuve‘s Dune cast seems to grow every single day, and every single announcement features another fine looking specimen. The latest: Jason Momoa, who recently rode box office waves in Aquaman. Momoa is in talks to take on the role of Duncan Idaho, a “fierce swordsmaster.” Duncan Idaho doesn’t exactly sound like a futuristic name, but let’s just go with it anyway.

Gal Gadot Voicing Wonder Woman

The LEGO Movie already gave us the minifigure version of Justice League, and they all came together again in The LEGO Batman Movie.

Gal Gadot, Margot Robbie and Jason Momoa have all been confirmed to lend their voices to the LEGO minifigure versions of their live-action DC Extended Universe characters Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn and Aquaman. Read More »

henry cavill superman

The “will he, won’t he” saga of whether actor Henry Cavill will return to play Superman in another movie for Warner Bros. is beginning to approach “Ben Affleck Batman” territory, and the latest update indicates that fans may see Cavill suit up as the Man of Steel one more time after all. According to Jason Momoa, who co-starred with Cavill in last year’s Justice League, Cavill is “absolutely not” giving up the role.

aquaman review

Aquaman is a movie that shouldn’t work. You’ve got Nicole Kidman eating a live goldfish in one scene, and an octopus playing the bongos in another — plus an absurd number of men sticking their heads down toilets (actually it’s just once, but it feels like a bit that goes on forever). And yet James Wan’s aquatic comic book movie is a total blast to watch.

On the heels of his scene-stealing introduction in last year’s Justice League, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman finally gets his own solo outing in an epic, sprawling adventure that is more than a match for his wild surfer bro superhero that spawned so many memes. Wan has managed to build an entire movie around Momoa’s laid-back hyper-masculine persona and uses it as a launchpad to create a staggeringly ambitious, visually overwhelming movie that crashes into you like a tidal wave.

Jason Momoa Hosted Saturday Night Live

Aquaman is coming to theaters later this month, so there’s no better time for Jason Momoa to make his hosting debut on Saturday Night Live. You may not know this, but Jason Momoa is a bit of an SNL nerd, and he was positively giddy with excitement when he walked out on the stage in Studio 8H. Actually he was pretty giddy the week leading up to that moment too.

The result was Jason Momoa giving a hosting turn along the same lines as when Dwayne Johnson returns to SNL, and we ended up with a generally hilarious episode. But if you were hoping for an Aquaman sketch, you’ll mostly be disappointed. However, the monologue comes close to giving us an Aquaman sketch. You’ll see what we’re talking about below.

So let’s run through the best and worst sketches of the Jason Momoa hosted Saturday Night Live.

Aquaman has yet to swim into theaters, but that won’t stop Warner Bros. from planning for his future. Early ticket sales have been so promising that the folks at WB are already in talks for a sequel that will bring Jason Momoa‘s aquatic hero back for another fishy adventure. While sequels can often seem inevitable to any and all superhero movies, poor reaction to previous Warner Bros. DC films has slowed momentum on several projects. But Aquaman is apparently about to make a big splash.  Read More »
