The Flash Season 4 Episode 7 Review – ‘Therefore I Am’

36 minutes ago

Jessie Robertson reviews the seventh episode of The Flash season 4…

I’ve realized this week (and I could be wrong) but for my own personal tastes, the early in-depth look and reveal of the big bads of the season make the season feel long and drawn out. So, by episode seven, The Flash and Thinker now know it’s on between them; it’s all out in the open – how do you elongate that into so many more episodes? You know half of them will be distractions; Thinker won’t really be involved at all – so begs the question, what exactly is he doing? Am I thinking about this way too deeply?

Cliff DeVoe is the Thinker. That much we know. His true villain origins are basically just like every other villain in Central City; he gained his powers (ultra-intelligence) from the Particle Accelerator explosion. His doting wife even asked »

Ezra Miller says Flashpoint will be the “DC Hyper-Extended Multiverse”

49 minutes ago

In the build up to the release of Justice League, it was rumoured that Warner Bros.’ planned Flashpoint movie was dependent on the success of the DC team-up.

As we’ve now seen, Justice League underperformed at the box office with the lowest domestic opening of the Dceu so far, but DC Films’ Geoff Johns has confirmed that Flashpoint remains part of the studios plans (and will include Batman), and speaking to EW, Flash actor Ezra Miller has stated that he also remains upbeat about the possibility.

“The development of the project has been a little Barry Allen-like in its mercurial tendencies, but it looks more promising and more exciting than any of the other stages of development that we’ve been in,” said Miller. “What fans understand when they hear Flashpoint would be almost like hearing a word like ‘Crisis.’ We start to understand that our precious DC »

First glimpse of a Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom dinosaur

2 hours ago

There have been rumours that the first trailer for J.A.Bayona’s dino-romp sequel, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, would be attached to The Last Jedi. Until life finds a way and that becomes a reality, we’ll have to settle for this brief glimpse of what appears to be a baby raptor upstaging the returning Chris Pratt, which has been tweeted by the film’s producer, Colin Trevorrow

From our Jurassic family to yours. @FilmBayona @PrattPrattPratt @BryceDHoward @LeDoctor #Fallenkingdom pic.twitter.com/KiR3et9Vx1

Colin Trevorrow (@colintrevorrow) November 22, 2017

It’s not exactly a rippling footprint, with the handheld camera technique appearing to signal that this is simply part of the slow promotional tease from Universal, but we’ll look upon it as a butterfly flapping its wings in Beijing, a sign of bigger things to come.

Shazam director responds to rumours of the Dceu’s cancellation

3 hours ago

The director of Shazam has commented on the baseless rumour regarding the DC Extended Universe’s cancellation.

Justice League wasn’t exactly what DC and WB were hoping for; the film didn’t perform well with critics and pulled in the lowest domestic opening for a Dceu film. This hasn’t helped the Dceu’s standing at all and only fuelled speculation regarding its future.

One such rumour claimed by a Reddit user, is that his “sources” at Warner Bros. told him they are planning on canning the DC Extended Universe and then taking a whole five years off while they sort things out and plan their next steps.

Well, no one told the director of the Shazam about this, David F. Sandberg. The director is a Reddit user and commented on the rumour, expressing his shock in a rather amusing and mocking manner.

“Nobody told me.” Sandberg wrote. “Can »

Jude Law joins Captain Marvel as Carol Danvers’ mentor

3 hours ago

Marvel’s first female-led superhero film has made another big casting decision, with Variety revealing that Jude Law is joining the movie  to star as the male lead opposite Brie Larson. There’s no word as to which character Law could be playing, only that he is said to be Carol Danver’s mentor as she navigates her new powers.

Carol Danvers was a member of the United States Air Force until an explosion at her air base combined her DNA with that of the alien race, the Kree, giving her super strength, flight and energy absorption. She then became the superhero known as Ms. Marvel, but recently assumed the full identity of Captain Marvel in the comics.

Ben Mendelsohn (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) is reportedly playing the film’s villain, a Skrull warrior while Samuel L. Jackson is expected to reprise his role as Nick Fury, using »

Justice League cinematographer wants a Zack Snyder director’s cut

4 hours ago

The cinematographer for Justice League, Fabian Wagner, has called for a Zack Snyder cut of the film.

There are a fair few people, after seeing Justice League, which would like to see what a full-blown Zack Snyder cut of the film would have looked like – Snyder had to step away from the production after a family tragedy, leaving Joss Whedon to take his place.

Wagner was the director of photography when Snyder was in the director’s chair but couldn’t return for Whedon’s reshoots due to scheduling difficulties. Second unit photographer Jean-Philippe Gossart ended up replacing him.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Wagner said that he enjoys the time Snyder takes to tell his stories; speaking with regards to Justice League’s fairly short running time:

“This one was even shorter than I expected, so there are scenes that aren’t in there. I really hope we get »

No Lando in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, according to director Rian Johnson

7 hours ago

With Star Wars: The Force Awakens feeling like a reunion, of sorts, with the series’ iconic characters, it’s natural to hope for even more cameos in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and one such character is Lando Calrissian.

Given the character’s upcoming appearance in Solo: A Star Wars Story, played by Donald Glover, it feels like a great time to catch up with Billy Dee Williams smooth talking smuggler. Well, for those hoping to see Lando in the upcoming film, prepared to be disappointed.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson is mincing no words on the potential of Lando making an appearance:

“No, and I don’t want fans to get their hopes up. He’s not in the film, and it was never really something that came up. I mean, I loved that character. It would have been fun to see him, but »

James Wan says Aquaman’s Atlantis scenes will be different from Justice League

7 hours ago

For a lot of people Justice League has seemingly undone the good work of the Dceu’s trail blazing Amazonian, Wonder Woman. Aside from the lacklustre box-office returns, fans have been speculating about how it will shape the future of this troubled cinematic universe, with The Hollywood Reporter writing a think piece on the job that awaits James Wan’s in-the-can Jason Momoa blockbuster, Aquaman, which is set for release on Dec 21, 2018. 

Most of the piece focuses on potential problems for the origin story, and what Amber Heard’s brief appearance as Mera means in terms of the source material, but what prompted the film’s director to take to Twitter was the sign off, which stated that “all James Wan and the rest of the Aqua-team needs to work out is how to have all the characters speak while underwater. There can’t be that many air bubbles under the sea after all. »

The Punisher Season 1 Episode 6 Review – ‘The Judas Goat’

8 hours ago

Liam Hoofe reviews the sixth episode of Marvel’s The Punisher

Ever since Daredevil season 2, the midway point of a Marvel Netflix series has been something I dread. Daredevil season 2 fell apart when, halfway through the season, it shifted focus from Daredevil vs The Punisher onto The Hand and Elektra, then, Luke Cage made the same mistake, killing off Cottonmouth and replacing him with a cartoon villain in the shape of Cage’s brother. Maybe, the reason for this is down to the 13 episode structure of the shows, which, presumably, is a contractual issue. The Punisher, however, seems to have taken a different approach, with the first six episodes being shrouded in mystery, spending time building up characters and not giving us a clear antagonist. Episode 6, ‘The Judas Goat’ finally gets all those pieces together, and it finally looks as though Marvel may have gotten their pacing right with this one. »

Nightcrawler director Dan Gilroy reveals details on his next film, due for release at Halloween

9 hours ago

Dan Gilroy’s Nightcrawler was an absolutely terrific film, and one that really solidified Jake Gyllenhaal as one Hollywood’s strongest actors. It’s exciting, then, to hear more information about Gilroy’s upcoming film that will be released via Netflix streaming next year. While we don’t have a name for the project yet, Gilroy recently gave Business Insider a good chunk of information regarding the film’s plot:

“It’s set in the world of contemporary art in Los Angeles. It’s got a Robert Altman-like large ensemble cast. It’s got a The Player vibe to it. There’s a large cast and we’re moving around from person to person as we move through this world. The story is being told through these different characters… It’s not a drama. It’s opening Halloween next year, that will give you some indication what kind of movie it is. »
