You know how some actors choose to take the high road after working on a project that doesn’t quite come together. Not Mickey Rourke. He’s a much bigger fan of telling people exactly what’s on his mind, even if it means setting fires to most of the bridges he walks over.
Even the most die-hard of fans can probably understand why Aquaman has become a bit of a pop culture punchline. On a completely surface level, having powers that largely concern bodies of water seems a bit limiting (especially when so much of the main action is happening on land), and conversing with animals – particularly fish – can be seen as being kind of silly. In spite of these “issues,” however, Aquaman remains an original Justice League member and has been a mainstay of DC Comics going back to 1941.
We've been hearing rumors regarding a possible role for Katee Sackhoff at Marvel Studios for months and months now. Ever since it became clear that the company is getting serious about a female superhero movie, fans of the Battlestar Galactica actress have been vocal about the idea of her getting a part (the most popular suggestion being a movie about Captain Marvel a.k.a. Ms. Marvel).
Ben Affleck knows you aren’t crazy about him being cast as the Caped Crusader in Zack Snyder’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. But he has been through this before (Gigli), and it seems to have made him (Jersey Girl) stronger as a result.
We already know this movie will have flashback sequences, and here is one.
There are far too many incredibly entertaining moments in Guardians of the Galaxy to list here, but certainly one that tops the list is what could be called the mid-credits sequence. And now it's available online for you to watch over and over again until your eyeballs pop out.
Momoa's been outspoken about this before: he apparently turned down the role of Drax in Guardians Of The Galaxy because he didn't think the role would push him as a performer and actor. Which might have been a bit too harsh, particularly to star Dave Bautista: what Momoa more likely dislikes is the pressures of these big films, and how they seem to dominate conversations.
Numerous TV shows are benefiting from Bear McCreary's musical talent these days. The composer is currently credited for a number of Starz shows, and you've heard his scores on everything from The Walking Dead to Battlestar Galactica and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
The auction currently is underway. It’s scheduled to last for 10 days. To give you an idea of how this book could price, Nicolas Cage once owned a copy of Action Comics No. 1 that was slightly less pristine than the one in Adams’ hands. It sold back in 2011 for $2.16 million.
Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has created its fair share of controversies as its moved through pre-production and filming, but one of the most interesting points of contention between the fans and the film has been the casting of Fast & Furious star Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.
While it doesn't happen super often, it's not incredibly uncommon for soundtracks to popular films to jump up the billboard charts. Hell, it was just earlier this year that Disney's animated hit Frozen wound up taking the top spot. As a result, the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack doing the exact same thing may not sound like that big of a deal - but the reality is that it has done something that no other soundtrack in history has.
Two juicy rumors just dropped, in fact, but I’m going to protect you from yourself. Stop reading this story now if you do not want to possibly be spoiled about Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice plot developments.
If you're doing the math at home, you just counted eight baddies, which means this is not the Sinister Six lineup (particularly not with a Venom solo movie also on the horizon). It is interesting that you'd see those earlier baddies there from Sam Raimi's films, particularly considering there are sketches of Doctor Octopus and the Vulture in the room that Marc Webb discusses here briefly, known as “Special Projects.”
The duo did reveal, though, that early drafts of The Winter Soldier did make room for Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye character, but in the end, “he didn’t have enough to do and suddenly it seemed like we were giving him short shrift. Hey, it’s a cameo!” A lot of his actions fell to the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson). Maybe a different Avenger can end up teaming up with Cap in the third installment.
So, here is the theory, based on rumors, guesswork and a few hunches: Guardians Of The Galaxy is to Marvel's space lineup as Iron Man was to Marvel's “Phase 1”: a reminder to its hero(es) that there's a “bigger universe” out there. And with the news about a writer for Inhumans came word that the studio was interested in building, "a multiple-film cosmic universe." So what are these films?
