Well, I won't be there on opening night for sure. But I'll at least pay attention to see how they're reviewed.

In what sounds suspiciously like a last minute ratings grab, looks like Ezra Miller's Flash will be joining Ben Affleck's Batman as at least a cameo in the upcoming Suicide Squad.

The next seasons of the Netflix Marvel shows apparently won't be appearing until at least 2018. And Punisher. Shame, I was really looking forward to that one specifically. So if we're keeping loose track, that's Cage in September, Iron Fist and Defenders in 2017, and Jessica Jones season 2, Daredevil season 3, and Punisher in 2018.

Preacher Season Finale was... huh. I'm not sure. I like it, but at the same time I find the whole thing ridiculous and kind of disjointed. Which I could see not appealing to a lot of people.

Jesse: It will be like Lady and the Tramp, but with our butts.

I'm liking the guy from ****. I liked the depiction of **** given. He had to relive that day where he slaughtered the town, and his daughter died, over and over for eternity. I wonder if that other Angel is gone for good because he died while in ****? Also curious if maybe something special about him or his weapon means the one demon lady isn't going to respawn?

The finale left me wanting the next season, so I guess it was successful. I haven't looked it up, but I hope it did well enough for them to keep it going. I didn't watch Hardwick's talk show after it. Maybe they talked about the future of the show with Rogen.

I found the ending more than a little annoying. By blowing up the town, they pretty much just threw away all of the character development that they were working on all season. They might as well just have done a five minute prologue that covered the high points of the first season, skipped season one entirely, and started the show on season two.

It's a fairly major plot point that (should) be revealed as the show goes on. Also, that is a good representation of Hell. Forget all that fire and brimstone and torture stuff. Your worst day repeated for all eternity? That's a whole 'nother level of torment.

Well, except for Odin Quinncanon they were all just background character. In the book the whole first season is a twenty page flashback of the first issue that the trio are talking about over a plate of fries (The town also explodes because of Genesis, not a methane plant). They just used it to flesh out the main characters, since the book just kind of drops you in.

I enjoyed the season. Some of the liberties they took not so much (making Quincannon a sympathetic "villain" kind of stinks, and maybe probably killing him off), but it took most of the queues from the book and created a prequel of sorts to introduce the characters which worked out in the end. Most people I know don't like what they did with Arseface but he's really not all that important in the book, truth be told. He's more like "Story B." This way made him more part of the story. Kind of disappointed that he takes John Wayne's place but I guess we'll have to wait and see how that plays out. Kind of curious what the beef against Tom Cruise is, but the regular references to his exploding and his corpse being launched into space was amusing for me.

I'm most curious how they're going to do Herr Starr. That is a messed up story, and I'm worried since they neutered the heck out of Quincannon. Seriously, I can't imagine like 90% of the stuff that involves Starr to make it on AMC. I don't think you could do it on Netflix or HBO either, but absolutely not AMC.

In Spider-Man: Homecoming news, UFC fighter Tyron Woodley added to the vast number of actors, probably as a gym teacher. Supergirl Season 2 will bring back Calista Flockhart, but not as a series regular. Also Echo Kellum says his character will suit up in the next season of Arrow as Mr Terrific. Should be interesting to see if they'll paint a T across his face, if you're still watching after last season. I will, because I'm dmub

Review embargo is down for Suicide Squad and it's not looking good. 35% on Rotten Tomatoes and 48% on Metacritic. Considering WB did the exact same thing with the embargo with Batman v Superman I'm not exactly surprised. I still kind of want to see it, since it looks like the kind of movie I actually do enjoy, and like I said I've found I'm a fan of Will Smith so that's enough of a draw, but it's definitely not going to be opening weekend.

Batman The Killing Joke was only 17 dollars for the BluRay/DVD/Digital version. So I picked that up today. Going to watch it later tonight.

I'm going to see Suicide Squad in theaters when it releases. I can't say I'm a fan of Will Smith, I mean, I liked that Wild West movie, and all the MIBs, the first Independence Day.. But I didn't care for the Earth's Gonna Kill You movie (can't remember the name). And I wasn't really interested in his dramas (Concussion, That one where he's selling Portable MRI things). Not because I think they were probably bad movies, but just because that type of drama just isn't my thing.

Edit:
Killing Joke felt short. I know it's a relatively short story, but for 1 hour 15 minutes, it went by pretty quickly. The "controversial" part of the story wasn't even that bad. (Not the original stuff, the part that came out during comicon.)

There are a few extras on the disc. Including a Sneak Peak of Justice League Dark. A few other extra clips and shorts that I haven't tuned into yet.

Edit2:

I started seeing this trailer all the time on TV. Stephen Lang.

T-Mobile had a free ticket offer yesterday so the wife and I are going to see it on Friday night. Like you said, the reviews aren't looking promising but at least we won't have overpaid.

It occurs to me that giving away a giant pile of tickets (which were technically "bought" through Fandango via voucher code) is an easy way to boost opening weekend numbers on a lousy film.

I end up only half paying attention by the time those commercials come on, but they keep saying "by the (my attention has already drifted at this point) Evil Dead" and I just kind of thought it was Sam Raimi, which is great. I like his goofy horror movies. Turns out it was Fede Alvarez who did the Evil Dead remake. Which is fine, since I'm all for goreporn, but Raimi movies are a special kind of flick for me. Just kind of set myself up for that disappointment. I mean, it still looks like a decent movie for it's genre. Just ... you know, not Raimi.

"Agents of SHIELD's" Official Season 4 Synopsis wrote:
“MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.” (Tuesdays from 10:00-11:00 p.m. ET)

“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” returns with a vengeance for the fourth exciting season in an all new time period, Tuesday at 10:00 p.m. ET. In the aftermath of their journey to another planet, Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and the rest of the team were driven more than ever to put an end to the Hydra organization. Little did they know that they were up against the deadliest threat they’ve ever faced – an extremely powerful Inhuman, Hive, who was transported back from Maveth in the body of their worst enemy, Grant Ward.  The team was able to thwart and kill Hive and take down Hydra, but they are all still mourning the death of fellow agent and Inhuman, Lincoln Campbell.

In light of the Sokovia Accords, and with Hydra obliterated, S.H.I.E.L.D. has been legitimatized again and no longer needs to operate in the shadows. Since the world presumes that Coulson is dead, the organization needed a new Director (Jason O’Mara) to be the face of the organization. Coulson finds himself back in the role as an agent and teamed with Mack (Henry Simmons), and together they are tasked with tracking down and confirming the presence of Enhanced people, aka Inhumans. They have been trying to track down and capture Daisy (Chloe Bennet), aka Quake, who has gone rogue in an attempt to atone for sins from the past.  But with the world believing that Daisy is a dangerous outlaw who has taken down banks and bridges, the new Director has no qualms about taking her down for good.  Agent May (Ming-Na Wen) is tasked with training specialist strike teams, and Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) have taken a big step forward in their relationship. But with Simmons’ new promotion as Special Advisor to the Director in Science and Technology, Fitz, as well as her former team members, finds it hard to confide in or trust her since she’s now the Director’s confidant.

Robbie Reyes (Gabriel Luna) will roar into the lives of Agent Coulson and the team as a junkyard mechanic who can turn on a dime into the terrifying Ghost Rider. Will Robbie be a friend or foe to S.H.I.E.L.D. – as well as the world, itself?  Meanwhile, Fitz discovers that socially awkward genius and friend Dr. Radcliffe (John Hannah) has started putting the finishing touches on a new, secret invention.

“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” stars Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons and Henry Simmons as Agent Alphonso “Mack” MacKenzie.

“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” was co-created by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen, who also serve as executive producers along with Jeffrey Bell and Jeph Loeb.
Aww, Coulson gets demoted and still not liking the possibility of Ghost Rider being an Inhuman or science related in any way.

Tyler Hoechlin as Clark Kent / Superman in the next season of Supergirl. Not bad, but I can't shake the idea that he looks like Robbie Rotten from LazyTown.

If anyone was following Bendis' Powers on the Playstation Network, I'm sorry to say it'll be ended after it's second season. I can only speculate that it's due to low ratings because no one uses the Playstation Network.

It's just hard to take the conspiracy theory seriously when so far WB has been 0/2 with cape movies being worth their ticket prices. Also Warner Brothers owns like 30% of Rotten Tomatoes. There's a new conspiracy theory going around that WB is purposefully tanking their theatrical releases to boost blu-ray sales.

And to use that to badly segue into revelations, a few months ago there was a joke casting going around that Michael Keaton would be the Vulture, since his last big movie was Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance). Well, jokes on us since it was confirmed that Keaton will be Adrian Toomes in Spider-Man: Homecoming afterall. Well played.

In some initial good news for WB/DCEU, Suicide Squad opened Wednesday with just north of $8m overseas, which is better than what Guardians of the Galaxy and Deadpool did, but that one was R so not totally comparable. Estimates put it at around $100m international, and $125 domestically. Doesn't really indicate quality or anything, but initial interest in the movie is certainly proven to be pretty high. DC really needs a win.

Katie McGrath will join the cast of Supergirl as Lena Luthor, a "beautiful, powerful, and enigmatic for arriving in National City to rebrand Luthor Corp as a force for good." So, you know, villain. Also there is apparently a leaked video from the set with Superman fighting "someone" who is probably Metallo, and some set photos showing some Metropolis. That'd be kind of neat. Matthew MacCaull will be Commander Steel in Legends of Tomorrow.

Suicide Squad was... not great. Not horrible and it was more fun than, say, any Fantastic Four movie but it was disjointed and overstuffed. Margot Robbie was easily the best part of the movie and Will Smith second but they couldn't carry the whole thing. Sword Girl was completely useless and you'd never miss her if she was gone. Boomerang Guy and Captain Crocodile had one or two decent lines or gags but were otherwise sidelined. The military guy was just flat and you never really cared about him or his tortured romance with the Sorceress. Diablo was pretty good.

Sorry folks, but Jared Leto's Joker was shit. Any time anyone criticized him from the stills or trailers it was all "Oh, you need to wait until you SEE the movie! Everyone though Heath Ledger would suck and he was so great!" -- Yeah, well, I've seen the movie and this ain't no Heath Ledger's Joker. Just completely unconvincing as either a maniacal genius or a terrifying psychopath. It wasn't just the dumb tattoos or grill or whatever, he just wasn't acting the part well.

As I said, the story felt disjointed and took a long time to gel into anything semi-coherent. I'd heard rumors that originally all the laugh lines were in the trailer and they went back and re-shot more humor into the film because people responded well to it. I don't know if that's true or not but I could believe it because the mood felt uneven like that. And not even like "Here's a serious scene that someone disrupts with a funny line and you laugh because of the broken tension" but just "Here's two serious scenes that we plugged a couple laugh lines between". Anyway, the film overall just didn't work as much of a buddy flick (only Robbie & Smith had any chemistry and I don't mean romantic), wasn't anything exceptional in the world of action flicks and the Bad Guy/Girl was practically a McGuffin just to have the team together. It's not a totally worthless movie and Robbie/Smith will probably make you chuckle a few times but you can definitely wait for the home version or discount theater showing.

Edit: Oh, and trailers. We had Wonder Woman (same as SD Comic-Con), Assassins Creed (looks like garbage), Dunkirk (trailer was just a shot of UK soldiers in a landing craft hearing a plane coming overhead and ducking in terror), War Dogs (What if Lord of War was a comedy, you'd want that right?) and Dr. Strange which looked okay enough although I wasn't especially excited about it. Also, the twisting city effects just made me think "Oh, looks like Inception" which isn't really the movie's fault but it didn't have a ton of impact either.

Finally, our showing of Suicide Squad was sold out although I suspect a LOT of those were from T-Mobile's free ticket offer.

More or less what Joph said.There was too much going on trying to establish all of the characters and only a couple of them ended up having an sort character arch. I didn't hate Leto's Joker, I thought he did a good job with what they gave him. He's just really not that relevant to the story. He could have been left out and you wouldn't really miss him. I have a feeling he was only put in there because of how boring the actual villain is, they needed someone else that was more interesting to spice things up a bit, but it really didn't work.

I'd put this movie on par with BvS, it's not terrible, but it's not very good either.

As an aside, the theater I was in only had about twenty or so people in it, and the AC was doing it's job too well. By the halfway point, I was glad I wore jeans instead of shorts, and by the end I wish I'd brought a jacket.

I'm not sure what they were going for. I mean, you can do an ensemble "heist" type movie with minimal exposition on each character (think Ocean's 11) and have it work. I think they spent too much time trying to humanize some of them that was unnecessary. Yeah, they're villains but audiences will relate positively to a protagonist who is amoral and a bad guy if he's funny, exceptionally skilled, generally bad ass, or some other larger-than-life trait. I didn't need a bunch of ham-handed daughter scenes to make me care more or less about Deadshot. Just don't show the protagonists murdering grandmas or raping children and we're probably okay.

Couple spoiler-iffic comments about characters:
El Diabo:Wait, what? His family story wasn't as sappy or annoying as Deadshot's, so that's good. But, at the end he... turns into some flaming Aztec god thing? And fights the other metahuman-god-wannabe? Is there a reason WHY he turns into a flaming Aztec god thing? Is he actually some flaming Aztec demigod or is he just a metahuman who decided to make flaming Aztec god his Final Form or wha? Then he blows up and that's that.
Killer Croc:So the divers are going to go into the tunnel and retrieve the charge and KC is all "This is my home, you're just tourists" and dives in and swims around all croc-like. Sure, cool. But then he does NOTHING. He beats up one or two mutant-alien-transformed things but so do the divers. You'd think he'd at least be the one to get the charge and place it after the "tourist" divers failed but nope. One of the military divers does all that like "Thanks for tagging along KC, but we didn't actually need ya...". Why was this guy even in the story?

And non-spoiler stuff I'm tagging anyway:
Boomerang GuyYou throw a boomerang. That's it. That's not even a super power. That's not even special for comics: there's another guy in DC comics who throws custom boomerangs all the time and he's like a million times better known than you. You're on a team with a guy who can shoot anything and hit it. With bullets. Why are you on this special squad of metahumans? Why are you in this movie? Did the evil government black lady decide to make a special task force of metahumans and then realize that they only had three in custody but six explosive rice thingies?
Harley QuinnYou also don't have any special powers that I know of but just about any scene worth watching was because of you. And, despite a few fan service shots of your ass, it was your personality that pulled it off. That said, a little HQ goes a long way so sadly you couldn't carry this film.
Sword LadyYou could have been replaced by a tree for all the difference it would have made to this film

Shame about Suicide Squad. Everything I've read, including your opinions, leads me to believe it's a pretty medium of the road movie which sacrificed a lot of characterization and disjointed by editing. Thanks for taking the proverbial bullet.

The Pink Ranger from the upcoming Power Rangers reboot, Sarah Grey, cast as Stargirl for next season's Legend's of Tomorrow. On Flash, Caitlin's mom will be played by Susan Walters from Vampire Diaries.
Gotham Season 3 Official Synopsis wrote:
GOTHAM (Mondays, 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) The origin story continues on Season Three of GOTHAM, and the stakes are higher than ever, as Super-Villains more ambitious and depraved are introduced, and a realignment of alliances shakes up the fight for power in Gotham City.

Season Three will peel back the curtain on the infamous criminal organization known as the Court of The Owls. With the Indian Hill escapees on the loose, JIM GORDON (Ben McKenzie) must take matters into his own hands as a bounty hunter in Gotham. He makes it his mission to find HUGO STRANGE (guest star BD Wong), the mastermind behind the horrifying Indian Hill experiments, and FISH MOONEY (guest star Jada Pinkett Smith), one of Strange’s subjects. Meanwhile, GCPD Detective HARVEY BULLOCK (Donal Logue) and Captain NATHANIEL BARNES (Michael Chiklis) remain at the forefront of the fight against crime in the monster-ridden city. Also, BRUCE WAYNE (David Mazouz), with the help of his trusted butler and mentor, ALFRED PENNYWORTH (Sean Pertwee), and former Wayne Enterprises employee, LUCIUS FOX (Chris Chalk), discovers there are still more secrets to uncover regarding his parents’ murders.

As the city sinks deeper into chaos, GOTHAM will continue to follow the evolving stories of the city’s most malevolent villains: THE PENGUIN (Robin Lord Taylor); EDWARD NYGMA/the future RIDDLER (Cory Michael Smith); SELINA KYLE/the future CATWOMAN (Camren Bicondova); BARBARA KEAN (Erin Richards), TABITHA GALAVAN/TIGRESS (Jessica Lucas) and BUTCH GILZEAN (Drew Powell). The series also will catch up with the future POISON IVY (Maggie Geha), who, after an encounter with a monster from Indian Hill, finds herself reborn as a young woman who’s harnessed the full power of her charms; and will dive into the origin stories of JERVIS TETCH/MAD HATTER (Benedict Samuel), a talented hypnotist teetering on the edge of madness; and the TWEED BROTHERS.

GOTHAM is based upon DC characters and is produced by Warner Bros. Television. Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”), Danny Cannon (the “CSI” franchise, “Nikita”), John Stephens (“Gossip Girl”) and Ken Woodruff (“The Mentalist”) serve as executive producers on the series. “Like” GOTHAM on Facebook at facebook.com/GOTHAMonFOX. Follow the series on Twitter @Gotham and join the discussion using #gotham. See photos and videos on Instagram by following @GOTHAMonFOX.
And finally for now, Thursday will show a trailer for Star Wars: Rogue One during the Olympics on NBC, and preparing for that there's a teaser for it.

Season 2 of Lucifer starts soon, and Michael Imperioli from Sopranos will be joining as Lucifer and Amenadiel's brother Uriel. Gotham hints at bringing in Harley Quinn and Croc. Also rumor has it that Fox is in "significant talks" for more X-Files episodes, which could be neat. The short season they aired before wasn't so bad, if rushed. Could always use more lizard people episodes.

First Luke Cage trailer.


New Dr Strange spot to air during the Olympics.

Patrick Stewart says that the new Wolverine movie, where Jackman apparently plays Mel Gibson as the Transporter for whatever reason, will most likely be his last appearance as Professor X on a movie. No word on whether or not he'll continue to look like Charles Xavier in real life, but seeing as how he hasn't aged in like thirty years there's a good chance he'll stay.

Suicide Squad seems to be doing what the rest of WB's DC outings weren't able, and bringing in money. There was like a 40% drop between Friday and Saturday, but that can be explained by T-Mobile's free ticket giveaway so the real drop probably wasn't nearly that drastic. Guess we'll see next Monday whether the movie actually has what it takes or if this is just another case of front-loading.

Charisma Carpenter from "Angel" and "Buffy" to show up on Lucifer. New rumor floating around that Momoa is set to be the next Eric in the on life support for thirty hours of pain Crow reboot. Kind of unlikely, since, you know, the movie studio that was making it went bankrupt a while back. More believable and related to Momoa but still a rumor is that the main villain in the Aquaman movie will be Black Manta.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter teaser trailer, finding Alice returning to Raccoon City. I've seen all of the movies but for the life of me I can't remember anything from them.


Also nothing to do with this thread, but I saw the trailer for "Sully" during Lucifer, and even with white hair and a white mustache Tom Hanks still doesn't look old.

There's going to be a two episode Flash / Supergirl musical crossover. Musical episodes are always stupid, and always worth watching. Now if they can just get Neil Patrick Harris. Two more for Supergirl, since CW is apparently going hardcore into bringing it into the fold, but one Kevin Smith will be directing a second season episode because he made friends with everyone, and Sharon Leal and Chris Wood will be showing up as M'gann M'orzz (Hi Megan!) better known as the White Martian Miss Martian and Mon-El who comes from a different planet but is pretty much a Kryptonian proxy. It was revealed that Mon-El will be who will emerge from the pod from the last season's finale, crushing everyone who wanted to see a dog in a cape.

Legends of Tomorrow finds it's Obsidian in amazing actor Lance Henriksen, the creepy dad from Pumpkinhead, creepy star from Millenium, and creepy robot from the original Aliens trilogy. Considering the shadowy deal of the character, pretty good casting. Also in a bit of "damn now I have to watch" news Dolph Lundgren to show up in Arrow's season 5 Russia flashbacks, which I guess means there's going to be a boxing montage. Parminder Nagra to be an "Anti-Inhuman politician" on Agents of SHIELD.

And another Flash speedsters villain being brought in, Mark Waid and Oscar Jimenez's '90s creation Savitar, whose unique claim to fame was his knowledge of transferring speed from one source to another and making Speed Force shields. If the last two seasons are any indication, then that's what Barry learns to defeat the season's main bad guy.

Aquaman's director James Wan says "No comment" about Black Manta rumors, showing just how little the rumor news sites have to actually report on.

Finished watching Outcast today.

It wasn't bad. But the season finale didn't really leave me wanting more. I didn't care of the "Kyle's daughter has super powers too" thing. I mean, Kyle's mother didn't seem to have the "touch". And with Kyle's daughter having it, it seems to be something "bloodline" related. But it was almost moving earlier into something along the lines of Kyle being possessed by a unique spirit. An Outcast from this Underworld that they are coming from. I was imagining something like Hell's Satan (you know, a powerful spirit that rebelled against its ruler). But the finale there kind of nixed that idea.

I think I had the same problem with Outcast as I do with both Walking Dead series. The pacing seems to change every episode. Like a million things might happen one episode and then the next absolutely nothing. I'm just not a fan of that rollercoaster style of storytelling. The episode explaining Data's change was good, though. We don't really know what he'll do in the future, but as far as the info we have the new spirit that is in his body is a "better person" than the one that it took over.

Suicide Squad is still making bank, kind of similar to Guardians of the Galaxy's path, though there is a bigger dip between opening weekend (Suicide Squad had more) to Monday (Guardian's second Monday was higher). Overall it of course doesn't say anything about the quality or how many people saw it, but I'm just happy that a DCEU is doing financially well because maybe this will convince WB that Zack Snyder's attempts are what the audiences didn't like and try to push him further away from the future projects.

Which, speaking of, Ray Fisher's Cyborg movie might still be questionable at this time, but the character is slated to show up in Ezra Miller's Flash. Still no word whether that stupid red Iron Man costume will be in the movie or not, but it's certainly not convincing me to go to a theater to see it.

There's some alleged reports stating that Jared Leto is angry over being misled about his Joker role in Suicide Squad. Much like the audience, he was apparently lead to believe he had a much bigger role than the seven~ish minutes that he actually showed up.

Rumor, according to "two individuals with knowledge of the project" Zendaya will be Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man: Homecoming. She's going to look awkward with red hair.

Marvel's Runaways is apparently going to show up on Hulu. The first two books were really good so that's some neat news, though why Hulu other than to annoy me and create a third "connected but not really" world for stories. Fourth, I guess, since Cloak & Dagger still seem to be on track to show up on the Freeform channel, which is apparently the "high school drama channel."

In casting news, Jared Leto has officially joined the Blade Runner reboot, which I'm sure he hopes will last more than seven minutes. Mallory Jansen from Gallavant will be an AI program in Agents of SHIELD. Ashley Rickards will be Rosalind "Rosa" Dillon, the Top, in Flash, which means Mirror Master probably in the near future. Also Joey King as Magenta, a magnetism based villain. Wil Traval moves to Arrow as "The Human Target."

Looks like this one got knocked back a bit, as the director all but said this wasn't happening. No word whether it's true or not, as he could be just denying to "make the cameo more exciting" but as of now it's a no.

Doug Liman leaves Gambit and signs on to director Justice League: Dark instead.

Looks like Captain Marvel is still in the market looking for directors, and allegedly down to three candidates: Niki Caro, Lesli Linka Glatter and Lorene Scafaria. At least according to Hollywood Reporter. On Twitter, Justin Kroll said "You're missing one" so who knows. No real word beyond that bit of gossip rumor journalism. In Dr Strange news, apparently Dan Harmon from Community wrong an additional scene or two for the movie, which would lead one to speculate that the executives didn't feel the movie was "funny" enough, which could be a bad sign.

Russos confirm that Steve Rogers isn't Captain America in their next movie, so let's boot up the speculation machine. You've got a Bucksicle out of the running, and Sam Wilson is with Steve so he's out as well. That leaves John Walker, the one time Captain America, an ultra conservative from Texas who later on took on Steve's third persona "US Agent." I'd say he was the most likely, though there are a few other options. William Burnside was the Captain America of the 50s, when Steve was still on ice. He was more of a fanboy that eventually went insane. There was also Roscoe Simons, who took up the shield and was eventually brutally slaughtered by the Red Skull.

Russia getting in on our super hero movies, and as the trailer for Guardians shows they gave a dude a bear head and a machine gun. I hope it gets released here just on that.

The Asylum level parody is what makes me want to watch it. Smiley: laugh

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the lineup for the future New Mutants movie has been announced, and will consist of Danielle Moonstar, Wolfsbane, Sunspot, Cannonball, Magik, and Warlock which makes up pretty much the whole '80s team. Also, Josh Boone has (again, allegedly) turned to some old coworkers, Scott Neustadter and Michael H Weber, from his time on The Fault in our Stars and The Spectacular Now to work on the script. Saying that, this would lead one to believe this one will be more targetted to the young adult crowd. So the Hunger Games or Divergence.

(I'll put this all here cause this is now just "General Media Entertainment Omnibus Thread" )

Sci-Fi is still going hard on the new scripted series. Good for them. There are a couple shows that have had their trailers getting a lot of air time. Premiering in September.

Van Helsing (But Van is a woman, Vanessa). I don't have high hopes for this one. Seems like those Underworld movies, and I wasn't too big on them. I'm suspecting Winona Earp with Vampires. And I stopped watching that show after a handful of episodes.




Channel Zero. I haven't looked into anything beyond the trailer. It appears to be one of those "weird stories" shows. Trailer shows a young kid giving teeth to what appears to be a creepy, tooth-skinned, Tooth Fairy creature. This one is probably top of my list for new Sci-Fi shows.




Aftermath. Not sure if this is related to alien abductions, natural disasters, or the rapture, or all of the above. I'll watch it, but I'm not really expecting much. Maybe it will surprise me.




And somehow they have a show being produced by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. Incorporated. Trailer makes it seem pretty standard "Big Power Companies" deal. Seems like something that Fox would air, then cancel half-way through the first season. With it being on Sci-Fi, I'm guessing it actually has a chance.

Van Helsing looks awful. Channel Zero doesn't give nearly enough information for me be interested, really the same goes for Aftermath. Incorporated seems like the same old evil corporation that's above the law thing that's been done to death. I like the SciFi is putting in the effort, but so far they aren't impressing me.

Of the ScyFy shows, I think I'll give the Damon/Affleck project a shot simply because they tend to work well together. Also that tooth fairy one should be fun to record and show my daughter once she starts losing her baby teeth just to save myself a buck or two.

They got the bear and the sickle sword guy. They just need a magical Scarlet Ruskie and an Iron Comrade and we're there.

To the surprise of probably no people, but as you may remember during the last few episodes of last season's Flash Wally West wasn't the only one to get shocked by Speed Force when Barry was trying to get his powers back. As it turns out, the actress in question (Violett Beane) has been rumored to be seen suited up as a speedster on set herself. And considering her character is based on the wholy original nomenclature "Jessie Quick," we could see yet another GoesFastMan Woman the upcoming season.

Also things seen and unseen on sets, at least according to The Spoiling Dead, apparently Abraham and Glenn haven't been seen too often. Which, if you think about it, is a pretty good way to throw people off from guessing your cliffhanger. Killing two people instead of just the predicted one.

Ben Affleck shared a video of Slade Wilson, better known to geeks as Deathstroke, so he either shows up in Justice League or possibly be in the Batman solo movie.

Driving home today, there was a piece on NPR about low budget horror films. It was fueled by the success of Don't Breathe this past weekend (29 million box office, 10 million budget). They were talking to the guy behind the studio for Paranormal Activity (apparently the first one had a budget of 15,000...)

I'd imagine that the ease of production of these low budget "horror" films makes the very tempting to small investors. And Blair Witch is one that is already written.

There's been three Hulk, two three Spider-Man, two Superman, two Batman and two Fantastic Fours in that time. I figure it's the studio has some money set aside to redo the movie with a higher budget. Which, sure, why not?

I mean, you know, besides all the times they do just that and the movie stinks?

I imagine the studios can also risk more money on them now that they're so focused on summer tentpole movies.

David Meunier signs on to play a Russian mobster named Ishmael Gregor for next season's Arrow. Which is weird, because reports have said that next season was going to be less "magic" and Call Me Ishmael is a big red fiery dude with horns and hooves. If Justified is any indication then at least Meunier has the hairline to support horns and the goatee to support being evil. Also in casting news, apparently there was some truth to the Supergirl Metallo rumor, as Frederick Schmidt has been cast for the character.

Rumor has it that Marvel (and ABC) is developing a small screen comedy adaptation of the New Warriors starring Squirrel Girl, who had nothing to do with the New Warriors who in turn had little to do with comedy. I guess they don't want to use the Great Lakes Avengers name.

Last week a cast sheet was leaked online for a scene in Spider-Man: Homecoming. This week, Hannibal Buress said in an interview "In Spider-Man, I play a gym teacher. I play one of the dumbass characters that don't realize he's Spider-Man. [My character thinks] ‘He’s Peter Parker. Oh man, this guy’s really athletic!” which gives some legitimacy to the sheet in question. If true, that means in addition to Keaten as Vulture (Seriously how great is that?), we've also got Thinker and Shocker in addition to like a week's worth of Nickelodeon tween stars. Zendaya has been all but confirmed as Mary Jane, though possible she'll just have the initials 'MJ' so the writers can gouge audience reaction and possibly introduce a more comic faithful Mary Jane sometime down the road or just say Z was her all along.

Some Reddit tier rumors. Apparently some production notes were "leaked accidentally." Again, all rumors, all found on Reddit.

Man of Steel 2: Will be 2020, and the main villain will be Brainiac, who is the result of Lexenberg using alien tech to enhance an existing Lex Operating System which sounds remarkably like the first half of Age of Ultron. Warner is also trying to recruit the likes of JJ Abrams and Duncan Jones to direct the film, and considering Abrams once almost directed a Superman flick called Flyby not exactly unrealistic.

Justice League: Lexenberg is here as well, who will be freed from prison by Steppenwolf, who in turn is helped to Earth in exchange for technology and information (which could lead to the Brainiac rumors). Superman will show up which is less a rumor than it is the painfully obvious conclusion anyone with two brain cells to rub together would come to, but he'll have his '90s beard, long hair, and tattered black suit similar to his reappearance after he died to Doomsday in the books. The report also claims that there will be a scene involving Joker (Jared Leto) and Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), where they are committing a crime and expecting to be caught by Batman, only, the whole Justice League shows up, and it's a comedic "Holy shit!" moment.

The report also claims that a Green Lntern will show up, possibly as a mid/end-credits teaser because every movie needs one of those.

Also Darkseid may be on hold for a while, as the report notes that Warner doesn't want a comparison to Thanos at the time. It goes on to bring up the Injustice League, Crime Syndicate, and The Society (all great names, right?) as options for Justice League 2 and beyond.


Teen Titans: Now that Deathstroke has been shown to exist, played by Joe Manganiello, the leaked report says he'll be the Teen Titans main villain, and Nightwing will be in the DCEU by the time actual word of this movie comes out, so there's that. The report goes on to say that Cyborg won't be in the movie since he'll still be showing up on The Flash

Aquaman: Aqualad'll be showing up. Because a movie building around Jason Momoa's stoicity needs a silly kid sidekick.

The Flash: Captain Cold will be the main rogue, who was repeatedly described as "creepy," and will wear a sleek mechanical suit that has the same colo scheme and pattern as his book version. Because the red paintball Stark-Tech armor Flash wears wasn't bad enough.

Random Casting: Just gonna copy and paste this.
Rumored Casting wrote:
Luke Evans was approached to play Sinestro in a Green Lantern movie.

Rob Lowe has been asked to play a villain in The Flash movie. DCEU really wants Rob Lowe as a villainous character.

Misha Collins, Channing Tatum, Milo Ventimiglia, Steven Yeun, and Jake Gyllenhaal have all been offered DCEU roles.

Emily Blunt, Rosamund Pike, Alexandria Daddario, and Jessica Chastain have also been offered DCEU roles.

We may see a new lineup in Suicide Squad 2, though that movie might be pushed to 2021, and it's unlikely that David Ayer will direct.


According to Deadline, Greg Berlanti is developing a live-action Black Lightning TV drama with husband/wife duo Mara Brock and Salim Akil. "Black Lightning centers on Jefferson Pierce. He made his choice: he hung up the suit and his secret identity years ago, but with a daughter hell-bent on justice and a star student being recruited by a local gang, he’ll be pulled back into the fight as the wanted vigilante and DC legend — Black Lightning." The whole "old superhero picks mantle back up to help daughter and locals" is an interesting premise for me, though it being a Greg Berlanti destined for CW love triangle soap opera makes me cautious.

Couple of Shocker, possibly Bokeem Woodbine, set pics from Spider-Man: Homecoming. Not a particular fan of the leather vest jacket, but that quilt pattern and the gauntlets more than makes up for it.

Over the weekend in Canada's Fan Expo, Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill dropped hints that the next two Batman animated movies will be based off the Hush and A Death In The Family storylines. I haven't read Hush, but A Death In The Family is where Joker kills off Jason Todd with a crowbar and who wouldn't want to see that again?

Episode titles for Luke Cage, all based on Gang Starr songs. Not my wheelhouse, but have some links to the songs as well courtesy of comicbookmovies.

VENGEANCE COMES TO ‘MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.,’ ON THE SEASON FOUR PREMIERE ON ABC

Gabriel Luna Guest Stars as Robbie Reyes – aka Ghost Rider. In the season premiere episode, “The Ghost,” Ghost Rider is coming, and S.H.I.E.L.D will never be the same.

Guest starring are Natalia Cordova-Buckley as Elena “Yo-Yo” Rodriguez, Gabriel Luna as Robbie Reyes, Mallory Jansen as Aida, Lorenzo James Henrie as Gabe, Briana Venskus as Agent Piper, Max Osinski as Agent Red, Ricardo Walker as Agent Prince, Edward Gelhaus as skinhead, Ian Hutton as Blondie, Blaise Miller as lab tech, Samuel Barajas as Felix, Bryan Rasmussen as warehouse manager, Wilson Ramirez as Diego, Jen Kuo Sung as Chen, Jerry Ying as thug #1 and Lilli Birdsell as Lucy.
Greg Berlanti says his Booster Gold movie won't be a part of the greater DCEU with Cavill's Superman and Batfleck.

It was only a matter of time, but with Robbie Reyes comes his little brother Gabe, who has been confirmed. Lorenzo James Henrie, who some of us may know as Chris from Fear the Walking Dead has been hired to be the wheelchair bound little brother of the Spirit of Vengeance. He's also rumored to be showing up in Spider-Man: Homecoming so if true this is a pretty big year for the kid.

Some news on the Deathstroke casting on future DCEU movies, as the Wallstreet Journal recently interviewed Geoff Johns who said Slade Wilson will be played by Joe Manganiello. Johns also confirmed that Joe will be appearing in the Batfleck solo movie, which probably won't materialize until 2018.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, which is the newspaper to go to for interviews like this, Geoff Johns and producer Jon Berg basically said that they finally heard what the audience's complaints about their movies, specifically Justice League, and are course correcting to "accelerate the story to get to the hope and optimism a little faster." It's weird. I think what they should do is get a better director in charge of the whole project and work at being a little darker than the Marvel movies, since we already have the Marvel movies for the lighter approach. Audience approval ratings for the first three movies are all sub 70%, so of course they're going to need to do something, though the movies also make some bank as well. For me, personally, it's just too late and I don't feel I'll be going to the theaters to see the movies, even if they offer free tickets again. Overall, good idea for a tonal change. It certainly is one of the top things necessary changes.

Greg Berlanti's Black Lightning gets a pilot production commitment, but over at Fox and not CW. I imagine part of it is because CW is already pretty overloaded with comic shows.

Steven Tyler is campaigning to join the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 3, when and if that ever becomes a thing.

Probably a better chance than if it were on CBS.

Bill Crudup to play movie Barry Allen's father. Bryan Singer confirms that Wolverine 3 will include the genetics obsessed Mister Sinister, which was kind of hinted at in X-Men: Apocalypse. Speaking of Greg Berlanti, he promises original musical numbers for the Supergirl / Flash crossover episode. Usually takes five or six seasons before a show resorts to a musical episode which seems like a bad sign, but at the same time I can't really remember a show that did resort to a musical episode that I didn't enjoy.

Just pointing out that it looks ridiculously low-res for a show in 2016.

Already making some moves, Ben Barnes reportedly to be a series regular to join Jon Bernthal Netflix's The Punisher. Rumor is he'll be Bobby Saint, who was a crime prodigy introduced in the 2004 Punisher movie and played by James Carpinello, who also portrays John Saint, who in turn is that movieverse's Jigsaw, one of the few Marvel villains you could attribute to Punisher. Interesting, but ultimately doesn't sound too likely to me since it's a character from another studio's movies, but at this point anything is possible.

Conrad Vernon has signed on to direct a remake of Troma Films' The Toxic Avenger. Truly one of the greatest bad movies of my generation, I totally don't want to see a reimagining of.

There were about twelve characters in Captain America: Civil War, and according to the Russos Avengers: Infinity War will have upwards to 60, and that they have some unexpected faces up their sleeves, some that might be from TV/Netflix. Also when discussing Brie Larson's casting as Carol Danvers, they remained coy on whether or not she'd be showing up. Her solo movie is supposed to be an origin story, so if she does even show up there's no telling if she'll just be an Air Force soldier with a line or two or if she'll be powered and her solo movie will be more flashback. New York ComiCon is in October, and the cast of Iron Fist will be in attendance, probably to not actually answer questions and to generally speak kindly about everything involved.

Some Justice League footage from ComiCon. Zack Snyder shares images of Batman's new tacticool outfit for Justice League. Looks kind of like a combination of Nite Owl's from Watchmen and the Nolan Batman costume. Not a fan of the weird googles, or the whole Extreme Paintball look, which is my biggest problem with Flash's costume. It's like they're going in the opposite direction. I do like it's less bulky, wasn't a particular fan of FatBat costume.

Fox has acquired the life rights of Stan Lee and are developing a period action-adventure movie set in the 1970s that is being described as a film in the “tone of Kingsman: The Secret Service or, as one insider put it, Roger Moore’s 007.” That ... that should be wild.


Extended season 4 preview clip for Agents of SHIELD. Still no real revelation on the whether Robbie is Inhuman or if he's supernatural, but talking with Mary Sue Poots doesn't really make me comfortable.

Just pointing out that it looks ridiculously low-res for a show in 2016.


The image of the poster for Agents of SHIELD? Or the show itself? Cause the image of the poster looks fine to me and if it's something else you're talking about, then... Smiley: confused
