Batman’s dramatic flair and The Punisher’s merciless morals collide in Finland’s violent, pulp noir answer to the booming superhero genre, as a masked vigilante wages a one-man war on the criminals ruining his city, and his life When a worldwide corporation known as Vala launches an untested vaccine called Nh25 into the market by bribing, threatening, and killing every official opposing them, a dark avenger is born.

Leaked Gotham Photo Reveals The Joker’s Shocking Final Look

As well as allowing David Mazouz to finally suit up as Batman, it seems that Gotham‘s upcoming season – and also series – finale will give us Cameron Monaghan’s final form on the show, too. The actor’s time on the Batman prequel has taken many shock twists – including playing two different maniac brothers – but it looks like he’ll at last get to portray a version of the Joker before things wrap up. Although, his appearance will apparently be far from what fans are expecting.

The promotional material for next week’s episode, “Ace Chemicals,” is heavily teasing that Jeremiah Valeksa’s about to end up in a vat of chemicals, the moment that’ll surely morph him into the Clown Prince of Crime. But how will he look afterwards? Well, this new leaked image, which is apparently a snap from a screener of the finale, depicts Monaghan’s

Will the Oscars be a superhero takeover with wins for ‘Black Panther,’ ‘Spider-Man’ and more?

Will the Oscars be a superhero takeover with wins for ‘Black Panther,’ ‘Spider-Man’ and more?
The presumed superhero anxiety of the Oscars seems to be fading slightly, thanks to a huge embrace of films like “Black Panther,” “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” and “Avengers: Infinity War.” With “Black Panther” in particular landing in Best Picture and earning six other nominations, the popular but not always respected genre appears to have broken the stigma. “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” are already expected to win their respective categories, and some are thinking “Black Panther” could take home a few craft categories as well. Could we really be on the brink of a total superhero takeover at the Oscars?

New Image Released For Batman Vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Earlier this week it was announced that DC Entertainment and Nickelodeon were teaming up to produce an animated film called Batman Vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Today we’ve got a new image from this exciting crossover film and it features the Ninja Turtles coming in contact with The Dark Knight.

The film is based on the Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics miniseries by James Tynion IV and Freddie Williams II. The story “will see the turtles meeting Batman via a transdimensional encounter, and feature our heroes teaming up to face Batman's deadly rogues gallery.”

The report also reveals the impressive voice cast, which includes “Troy Baker as both Batman and The Joker (making him the first actor to ever take on both roles in one project), Darren Criss (the Emmy winning star of The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story) as Raphael, Kyle Mooney (Saturday Night Live) as Michelangelo,

Oscars: Resistance to the Rescue

  • Variety
Oscars: Resistance to the Rescue
When “The Dark Knight” failed to secured a best picture Oscar nomination, the snub was said to have prompted the Academy to expand the category from five nominees to as many as 10.

A decade later, maybe out of fear that something similar might happen again to the immensely popular “Black Panther,” the Academy announced — then withdrew — its intention to create an award for most popular film. The idea was derided as a bald attempt to shore up sinking ratings for the Oscar telecast, as opposed to honoring the quality of the filmmaking.

Black Panther” earned its spot in the best-picture category anyway, the first comicbook movie to do so. The film embedded itself in the culture so deeply and so quickly that “Wakanda forever” has been used as a knowing comic punchline everywhere from “Saturday Night Live” to the new film, “What Men Want.”

But “Black Panther” isn’t the

Marvel’s Kevin Feige Gives Credit to Ryan Coogler for ‘Black Panther’s’ ‘Personal Story’

  • Variety
The annals of film history are littered with far more movies that went unrecognized with a best picture nomination than those that are, but few made more of an impression on the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences than “The Dark Knight.”

Ten years ago Christopher Nolan’s film received eight nominations and won two awards, for supporting actor and sound editing, but outrage over the absence of even a chance to win that top prize prompted the Academy to increase the number of nominees, and more broadly, instigated a cultural conversation about whether or not superhero films deserve to be considered alongside more “serious” works of cinematic art. That debate roiled in the ether until this year, when “Black Panther” finally became the first movie superhero film to compete for best picture.

Producer and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige says he looked at the historic nomination less as

BigRep’s 3D Printer Takes ‘First Man’ to the Moon
Production designer Nathan Crowley was strolling through the Brooklyn Navy Yard during the shoot for “The Greatest Showman” in fall 2016 when he passed a building with a 3D printer printing a chair.

“The lady inside told me it was a machine from BigRep,” recalls Crowley. “I said, ‘When’s the last time you had a filament jam?’ She said, ‘About a month ago.’ And I was like, ‘Ok, I need that machine.’”

Crowley didn’t get to use it for “The Greatest Showman,” but he rented two BigRep One models for his next film, director Damien Chazelle’s “First Man,” rounding out an arsenal of 18 3D printers used make everything from knobs and joysticks for the lunar module that puts Neil Armstrong (Ryan Gosling) on the moon to a 14-foot-tall scale model of a Saturn V rocket.

Marvel Studios Chief Kevin Feige: 'Black Panther' Features "One of the Best Lines We Ever Read"

Marvel Studios Chief Kevin Feige: 'Black Panther' Features
When Christopher Nolan's Batman movie The Dark Knight, released in 2008, failed to capture a best picture nomination, the resulting hand-wringing caused the Academy to expand the category from five films to as many as 10. The idea was to make room for popular yet critically acclaimed blockbusters, a goal that proved elusive — until this year, when Marvel's Black Panther became the first comic book-based movie to earn a slot on the list of hopefuls for the Academy's top prize.

Triple Threat Trailer Shows Tony Jaa and Iko Uwais Fighting (Exclusive)

David Crow Feb 14, 2019

Watch an exclusive trailer for Triple Threat, a new martial arts movie that puts Tony Jaa, Iko Uwais, and Scott Adkins onscreen together.

Forget The Expendables. The team you want to be on is the one in which Tony Jaa, Iko Uwais, Scott Adkins, and more are throwing high-flying fisticuffs. That is certainly the very amusing appeal of Triple Threat, a new VOD and limited release cinematic event that brings some of 21st century cinema’s best martial artists together for an action movie spectacle.

The film, which is directed by Jesse V. Johnson (a former stuntman on films like Thor and The Amazing Spider-Man) is about a group of mercenaries going head to head with a group of assassins. May the best roundhouse kick win. The synopsis is below:

“A down-and-out team of mercenaries must take on a group of professional assassins and stop them before

The Russo Brothers’ Agbo Banner Options Rights to Short Film ‘Kiddo’ for Feature Adaptation (Exclusive)
Joe and Anthony Russo’s Agbo has optioned the rights to the short film “Kiddo” with plans to adapt it into a full-length feature, sources tell Variety.

VFX expert Tito Fernandes, who directed the original short, will return to direct the full-length version with fellow former VFX production coordinator Shannon Triplett penning the script.

The original short is set in the future on an alien planet and is described as an epic coming-of-age sci-fi adventure film. It tracks Kim, an orphan on a mission to avenge her father’s death, with the help of her loyal pet and giant robot. The short, which has been compared to “District 9” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” quickly made waves across Hollywood.

Fernandes cut his teeth working on visual effects teams on movies such as “Interstellar,” “The Force Awakens,” and “The Dark Knight” and is now looking to try his hand at directing.

Reboot, Reset, Mulligan, Ad Nauseam: The Ever-Increasing Frequency of Reboots

Tom Jolliffe looks at the ever-increasing frequency of reboots…

This won’t come as any surprise but the notion of the reboot, remake, or whatever you call it is nothing new. We’ve all seen three live action Spider-Man incarnations in just 10 years from Tobey Maguire’s final fling, through Andrew Garfield, to Tom Holland who is currently heading into his fourth and fifth films as the webslinger (unless I lost count somewhere).

In this tech age of instant gratification and disposable entertainment, disposable artists and an unquenchable desire for the next thing, have audiences lost their attention spans and loyalties to the point that we need to keep hitting the reset button to refresh the same repeated characters and franchises? Here’s the thing…if it weren’t already, it’s getting very silly now. Ben Affleck donned the Batsuit off the back of a huge dose of contention among the fan communities.
