Archenemy trailer

Joe Manganiello is built like a comic book character. He’s played one before, popping up very briefly as Deathstroke in the post-credits scene of Justice League – a tease which, through no fault of his, will likely never pay off. Now he’s toying with the superhero genre again in Archenemy, a new film in which he plays an alcoholic and homeless character who may or may not be a hero from another dimension.

Oh yeah, and his character’s name is “Max Fist.” Amazing.

Check out the trailer for the film below, which reminds me of what might happen if Hancock was mixed with Taxi Driver. Read More »

World's Greatest Book Club

During the heyday of ABC’s Lost, actor Paul Scheer (The League, Black Monday) was such a fan of the show that he became the go-to host for events surrounding the mystery series. (He was on the ground floor during the launch of the Lost art show which catapulted Gallery1988 to fame.) Now Scheer is hosting a brand new digital series called The World’s Greatest Book Club for Marvel Comics, and he’s cashed in on that long-time fandom and landed Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof as the show’s first guest. Check out the debut episode below. Read More »

Mickey Mouse documentary

Today’s Disney+ non-fiction presentation in Hollywood provided a plethora of information about more upcoming projects for the nascent streaming service, including news that a new Mickey Mouse documentary is in the works with the high aspiration of being “the definitive analysis of Mickey as a cultural icon.” The untitled movie will be directed by Jeff Malmberg, the filmmaker behind the 2010 doc Marwencol, and produced by Morgan Neville, who is perhaps best known for last year’s beloved Mr. Rogers doc Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

Plus, we learned that actors Gillian Jacob (Community, Love) and Paul Scheer (The League, Veep) will be directing episodes of Marvel’s 616. Get the details below.

What’s going on with that Galaxy Quest TV show? According to writer Paul Scheer, the television spin-off of the 1999 sci-fi comedy is currently in a “hold pattern” due to some behind-the-scenes shake-ups. But when the series does arrive, it’s going to be “what The Force Awakens is to Star Wars.”
