Even though Marvel Studios is now squarely focused on bringing forth the small screen side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, starting with shows like WandaVision, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, and Loki, they’re still letting some shows from the old Marvel Television arm move forward, and one of them just added some outstanding new cast members.
Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K. is a new stop-motion animated series coming to Hulu that focuses on the titular megalomaniacal supervillain as he deals with failure in the form of losing his job, struggling with his marriage and family, along with all the general woes of being a comic book villain. Patton Oswalt is leading the series as M.O.D.O.K., and the show’s panel at WonderCon over the weekend announced the addition of Jon Hamm, Whoopi Goldberg, Nathan Fillion, and Bill Hader. Find out who they’re playing below. Read More »
DC FanDome finally brought us a first look at James Gunn‘s The Suicide Squad. The DC Comics movie continues the adventures of a few characters from 2016’s Suicide Squad, but thanks to the Guardians of the Galaxy director stepping behind the camera, the movie has a completely new style and it seems to have a much more vibrant look that draws from the colorful side of DC Comics. Along with that, there’s a huge new roster of characters, many of them from the more obscure pages of John Ostrander‘s run on the comic book series. Since people probably don’t know a lot about them, here are The Suicide Squad characters explained. Read More »

Nathan Fillion has been chums with director James Gunn for a while. The Firefly star led Gunn’s horror comedy Slither back in 2006, he took up post as a sacrilegious hero called the Holy Avenger in the R-rated superhero comedy Super, and he had a small role in Guardians of the Galaxy as one of the alien criminals in the Kyln prison. Fillion also had a cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 that ended up being left on the cutting room floor, but now he’s going to play around with James Gunn’s latest comic book flick.

Ever since the first Uncharted video game arrived back in 2007, fans have wanted to see actor Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Castle) play the lead role of Nathan Drake, a treasure-hunting adventurer/thief, in a movie adaptation. The actor bears a striking physical resemblance to the video game protagonist, and Fillion has proven capable of matching the character’s sarcastic temperament and quick wit in parts he’s played in the past. An Uncharted movie has been in the works for years at Sony, but since Fillion isn’t going to be involved with that project, he’s taken matters into his own hands.
In this unofficial live-action Uncharted fan film, Fillion finally suits up as Nathan Drake – and he’s joined by a cast of familiar faces in key supporting roles. Check out the short film below.

There are some people who seem to think it’s ridiculous to think about the universe of Pixar’s animated franchise Cars beyond its surface-level existence of a world where automobiles can talk just like animals have in countless Disney movies before. But there’s just something about the logistics of the Cars universe that raises a myriad of questions, and that can be frustrating, especially when Pixar goes out of their way to not answer them unless it’s important to the story or characters.
For anyone who thinks those asking the tough questions about the Cars universe are thinking way too hard about this concept, it must be pointed out that even the actors and actresses who lend their voices to the sentient vehicles in this weekend’s Cars 3 have their own questions about the world of Cars.
Watch as the voice cast poses their own Pixar Cars universe questions after the jump. Read More »
