deathstroke movie

Hopefully you weren’t looking forward to that Gareth Evans directed Deathstroke movie, because it’s not happening. At least, not anytime soon.

That’s not to say Deathstroke won’t star in his own adventure sometime in the future. Just don’t hold your breath.

Joe Manganiello Deathstroke

It was the summer of 2016, and Ben Affleck had just tweeted a video featuring Joe Manganiello in costume as Deathstroke. The fan community was pumped about the idea of the two of them facing off in a Batman movie directed by Affleck, but since then, we’ve only seen Manganiello’s version of this character pop up in a post-credits scene in last year’s Justice League.

Now the former True Blood star is talking about the research he did to become the DC Comics villain, and how what was originally intended to inform his work in the Batman solo movie may be rolled into a Deathstroke film that could be directed by The Raid‘s Gareth Evans. Read More »

The Rock Dungeons and Dragons

Most of the time, press conferences for big blockbuster movies are opportunities for the actors to crack a few jokes, share a fun story or two about making the movie, and that’s about it. It’s rare that anything actually substantial comes out of these Q&A sessions, but the press conference for Rampage, the upcoming film adaptation of the video game, was a little bit different.

During the conference, actor Joe Manganiello (who plays a mercenary in Rampage) revealed that star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was in talks to lead a Dungeons and Dragons movie, and Johnson confirmed it. Read about The Rock Dungeons and Dragons connection, the Rampage movie’s special homage to the video game on which it’s based, and more below.

‘Justice League’ Post-Credits Scene Explained

Justice League post-credits scene explained

The DC cinematic universe has avoided post-credits scenes thus far. The closest they’ve come is a mid-credits scene in last year’s Suicide Squad. But Justice League, WB’s biggest superhero movie yet, is taking a page out of the Marvel playbook: it features a mid-credits scene and a post-credits scene. Since the movie is in theaters now, let’s talk about what those scenes entail and how they set up things to come.

Warning: spoilers for Justice League and both of its credits scenes lie ahead.

rampage movie

Brad Peyton (San Andreas) has started shooting his adaptation of Rampage, based on Midway’s classic and repetitive 1986 video arcade game. Since the game is only about monsters wreaking havoc on buildings, the movie gives Peyton and the screenwriters, including Carlton Cuse (Bates Motel), the freedom to tell the story they want to tell.

The other day, some plot details were leaked, which explained the overall premise of the film. They were fairly run-of-the-mill plot points, what you’d expect from an adaptation of a game without a story. Now, Warner Bros. has released an official synopsis, which has a bit more info on the plot, and the film’s star, Dwayne Johnson, shared a photo from the set.
