Jamie Chung to play Blink in Marvel and Fox’s X-Men TV pilot

18 minutes ago

Jamie Chung is swapping the DC universe for Marvel, with the actress joining the cast of Fox’s and Marvel’s as-yet-untitled X-Men series, where she will portray the character of Clarice Fong, a.k.a. Blink. Chung has recently starred in Fox’s Batman prequel series Gotham, where she played Valerie Vale.

Blink previously appeared in X-Men: Days of Future Past (where she was played by Fan Bingbing), and her character description for the TV show reads: “A sarcastic and lively tomboy, Clarice’s naturally strong exuberance has taken a hit after a sudden and traumatic upheaval of her life. As she adjusts to the new people and places that are suddenly ‘home,’ Clarice is slowly becoming herself again.”

Chung is the second actor to be cast in the show after Blair Redford (Switched at Birth) who plays Sam, described as “the strong-headed Native American leader of the underground network. »

No plans for a Step Brothers 2, says Will Ferrell

31 minutes ago

Well, here’s some disappointing news for fans of Step Brothers, as Will Ferrell has seemingly closed the door on the long-rumoured sequel to the beloved 2008 comedy.

“You have to resist the temptation,” Ferrell tells Rolling Stone. “It’s just tough because the things everyone wants you to do sequels of are special because there’s not a sequel of it. I guess we’ll see, but as of now there are no plans. We just don’t want to be doing sequels of everything. I think we personally feel great about what we did with Anchorman 2, and I think there are actually some people who like it more than the original. But then you always get that little bit of people saying, ‘Awww, why’d they have to do that?'”

Step Brothers 2 seems to have been on and off over the years, with director Adam McKay revealing »

Hugh Jackman rejects possibility of a Wolverine/Deadpool team-up, is ready to see another actor as Logan

52 minutes ago

With the much anticipated arrival of the latest X-Men film, Logan, only a short time away, and with reviews for the Wolverine spin-off being rather impressive, talk about Fox’s two favourite R-rated heroes Wolverine and Deadpool teaming up has once again has ramped up.

It seems like it would be a sure thing for the studio, with the tepid response to X-Men: Apocalypse perhaps keeping events smaller and focusing on arguably the franchises’ two most successful characters is a good idea.

Hugh Jackman however disagrees and is adamant that Logan is his last hurrah as Wolverine.  He spoke about his opposition to the possibility in a Facebook Live interview, answering the team up question as follows:

“No, and Ryan Reynolds is currently sleeping outside my house. [Laughs] Look, if that movie had appeared 10 years ago, probably a different story, but I knew two and a half years ago that this was the last one. »

Possible Spoilers: Wonder Woman plot leaked online with possible cameos and tone – but is it any good?

58 minutes ago

Warning: possible spoilers below…

Over the weekend, Warner Bros and DC Films held a test screening of their upcoming superhero movie Wonder Woman which received very positive reactions. And although each audience member signed a strict Nda, someone broke that and took to the Internet to leak the plot details. The folks over at Midnight’s Edge broke this down and claim there is some validity in the below plot synopsis – and believe there is some truth behind the idea that Warner Bros. allowed these details to be leaked in order to generate positive press. So, these could be potential spoilers – but take them with a pinch of salt for now.

Again, spoilers below:

The movie will have a framing device of Wonder Woman in Paris emailing Bruce Wayne, who is asking her to join the Justice League. In this email exchange, Diana recounts her past and meeting her first love, »

1 hour ago

The director of Logan, James Mangold, has said he would be shocked if Fox didn’t pursue X-23 in the future.

Villordsutch reviews Navigators of Dune…

Navigators of Dune is the third book in the Great Schools trilogy from Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson, the previous being Mentats of Dune.  Finally, in this book all the threads that have been floating in the Universe, from Venport’s monopoly of both Spice and the Navigators, the fanatical Manford Torondo, Vorian Atreides and the long running blood feud with the Harkonnens, may be coming together.  Though any Dune fan will know the Atreides and Harkonnen blood feud never truly concludes.

With Josef Venport’s part in the assassination of the late incompetent Emperor Salvador revealed, he becomes an enemy of the Empire and now Emperor Roderick Corrino, a much wiser though more cautious man, takes the throne and begins to seek justice for his late brother.

This is made somewhat difficult as Venport not only controls both a huge majority of the Spice flow, »

Interview: How Gore Verbinski and Dane DeHaan turned their nightmares into A Cure For Wellness

3 hours ago

Dan Jolin chats with Gore Verbinski and Dane DeHaan about A Cure for Wellness

During the summer of 2015, while shooting A Cure for Wellness in Germany, Dane DeHaan went through what he describes as “my month of torture”. In the space of a few weeks, the then-29-year-old star of Chronicle and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was strapped down and subjected to drill-induced dental abuse; had a tube rammed down his throat; and was immersed in a huge, water-filled sensory-deprivation tank.

They call it ‘suffering for your art’, but DeHaan has taken it to a whole new level.

“The dentist scene was more or less shot in a day, but for me it was just a terrifying circumstance to be in,” he explains, a good year and a half later and now sitting very comfortably in a London hotel suite. “That was fast and psychologically demanding.” The tube-gagging sequence, meanwhile, »

James Mangold rules out Logan post-credits scene

4 hours ago

Last week we reported that although Logan did not have a post-credits scene for various press screenings around the world, Collider claimed that there would “100%” be such a scene for the film’s theatrical release, seeing as Fox had extended the run time by three minutes for its release.

Well, director James Mangold has officially debunked that report, revealing that there will Not be a post-credit scene attached to Logan:

@borbs There is not a post credits scene.

— Mangold (@mang0ld) February 21, 2017

As a follow on, Collider is now stating that the movie may actually have an additional scene before the film even begins: “After doing some digging I’ve learned I wasn’t altogether wrong about Logan having something cool for the fans. But instead of it being after the credits, maybe it’s before the movie has started…”

Having seen Logan, it would definitely be extremely difficult »

Arrow Season 5 Episode 14 Review – ‘The Sin-Eater’

Jessie Robertson reviews the fourteenth episode of Arrow season 5…

He eats them? The sins of others?

This week’s Arrow does so many things and does them well; it has a bad guy to nab in the central plot, it has a hooking sub-plot with Thea and more Arrow hijinks mixed in with governmental and political action (who knew that could fit so well into this show?) Let’s start big: We get a prison bus break and a trio of femme fatales is on the loose: Cupid, everyone’s favorite obsessed with Ollie psychopath, Liza Warner, rogue cop as part of a killing Swat team from last season and China White, who we haven’t seen since season 2. They somehow got wind of the millions Tobias Church left behind and want it for themselves. They basically go on a killing spree until they find it and in the meantime »

Deadpool 2 start date leaked, Captain Marvel details, new Star Wars artwork and more – Daily News Roundup

Captain Hair-vel

It seems odd – to me at least – that one of the big talking points around Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel is less around her costume, tone and director, but the haircut she’ll sport in the film. The character has had a wide variety of cuts over the years, and Larson is under the impression that fans will not be happy with the choice they’ve made. “I can’t say anything,” she told IGN. “I feel like this is a big conversation and everyday I have people yelling at me on Twitter like you better have long hair, or you better have a mohawk, or you better wear the helmet, or you better not wear the helmet, so someone’s going to be mad.” Read more about that story here.

Book Review – Art of Atari by Tim Lapetino

5 hours ago

Villordsutch reviews Art of Atari by Tim Lapetino…

The original Atari 2600 was a truly fantastic looking console.  It came with faux-wood panelling to give it an extra special piece of class that other gaming consoles – like the Binatone – just couldn’t bring to the sophisticated buyers home (yes Intellivisison tried but it couldn’t match the Atari 2600).  However, inside the Atari 2600, that was a different matter; here sat not much if we’re being honest – a board, a Rf shield, a cluster of capacitors and other whatnots and six switches.  When it came to gaming on the 2600 you needed two things 1) a damned good imagination 2) and a brilliant artist designing the boxart to fire that imagination up.

It’s the latter requirement that is the real focus of Tim Lapetino’s “Art of Atari” from Dynamite.  This rather grand “coffee table” style book weighs in around 350 pages and it is »
