Robert Rodriguez has a superhero movie called We Can Be Heroes coming to Netflix at the beginning of 2021. Initially, it seemed like it was a new, original premise from the director, utilizing as much green screen technology as possible to bring it to life. But earlier this week, we learned the movie takes place in the same universe as The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3-D, and both of the superheroes are returning all grown up. But they wont be in action for long.
We Can Be Heroes finds alien invaders kidnapping all of Earth’s superheroes, leaving their superpowered kids to be protected in a government safe house. But rather than sit by and let their parents suffer at the tentacles of these nasty aliens, these rugrats take matters into their own hands to save their parents and the world. It’s basically Spy Kids with superheroes, and it all looks quite ridiculous, and you can watch the We Can Be Heroes trailer below to see for yourself. Read More »
Robert Rodriguez can be Hollywood’s favorite family-friendly director…just for one day. Every few years or so, the Alita: Battle Angel director will deliver a new family movie out of nowhere — Spy Kids would become a minor phenomenon in 2001, spawning a four-film series and an animated reboot, and The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl has gained a small but passionate following. Enough of a following that Rodriguez is returning to the world of Sharkboy and Lavagirl for a sequel — of sorts — with the upcoming Netflix kid action movie We Can Be Heroes.
Below, you can check out the We Can Be Heroes first look images featuring the film’s high-profile stars, like Pedro Pascal, Christian Slater, and Priyanka Chopra.

The third episode of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian arrived on Disney+ today, and with it comes a focus on the show’s small but stellar ensemble cast, which introduces a batch of memorable new characters into the live-action Star Wars universe.
Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano and Carl Weathers sat down with executive producers Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni to discuss their experience working on The Mandalorian, get their perspective on Star Wars and share some stories from behind the scenes. Easily the most fascinating reveal from this particular episode involves learning that not only was Carl Weathers’ character Greef Karga originally designed for him to be in alien prosthetic make-up, but he was going to be killed off in “Chapter 3: The Sin.”
Get more details on that and all the finer points of the new episode of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian. Read More »
Last week, we learned that most of the cast of the often-brilliant comedy series Community will be reuniting for a virtual table read to raise money for coronavirus relief efforts. Even Donald Glover will be back, marking the first time he’s doing anything related to this series since he left the show in 2014.
But one person won’t be able to make it: Justified and The Shield alum Walton Goggins, who guest-starred in the episode that the cast will be reading – season five’s “Cooperative Polygraphy.” Instead, his role will be read by The Mandalorian, Narcos, and Game of Thrones actor Pedro Pascal. Check out a photo from their recording session below. Read More »
