Our first look at the new Hellboy

Hellboy is coming back and from everything we know so far it's looking  looking really dark, very bloody, and bit less campy than Guillermo Del Toro's take on the indie comic favorite. Also, no Ron Perlman, which is sad, but ...

James Gunn says a lot of stuff about Guardians 3

Guardians of the Galaxy 3 is a long way off, but that doesn't mean that director James Gunn isn't getting things ready. He recently did a Facebook Live chat where he covered every topic under the sun, including reminding us that adoles...

Review: The Defenders (Season 1)

When the Marvel Cinematic Universe first came to Netflix it seemed like such a great idea. Four individual series of shows focused on more grounded heroes eventually coming together in a small scale, Avengers-like fashion. But the exci...

Justice League actually looks pretty good in its SDCC trailer

Justice League is in the middle of a huge mess right now. DC Comics and Warner Bros. are tooling and re-tooling elements, Ben Affleck was almost phased out of the Batman role (before confirming he'd be staying on), and the film's current ad...

The New Warriors announces its main cast

A few months ago Freeform formerly known as ABC Family announced that they had ordered a 10 episode season of Marvel's New Warriors sight unseen. At first it was exciting to me as I've heard nothing but great things about the comic series b...

Review: Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man films have been through all sorts of ups and downs. What was once the biggest comic book property on film has since been the victim of studio craziness, failed attempts, and just an overall bad reception by the time The...

Danny Elfman will score Justice League now

After Wonder Woman turned out to be so good I was kind of getting my hopes up that Justice League wouldn't actually be a total mess, but things are getting shaken up too much for me not to be worried. Obviously Zack Snyder handing...

Patty Jenkins is not signed on for Wonder Woman 2 yet

Unlike many of the other DCEU films Wonder Woman deserve to be the massive hit it has become, pulling in well over $100 million over the weekend, and outpacing box office expectations by a lot. However, because Patty Jenkins had o...

Review: Wonder Woman

DC Comics and Warner Bros have been, well, let's say misguided in their attempts at launching a series of films comparable to Marvel's success. Deciding to push through critical failure (thanks to overall box office success), the conglomera...

See Wonder Woman early and free

Early buzz on Wonder Woman is that its the best DC has put out. That might not be saying much considering the low quality of their films so far (aside from Batman), but evidently its the best because it is actually good. We can't say t...

Amber Heard as Mera still can't get us excited for Aquaman

It's hard to get excited for Aquaman because... well... it's Aquaman. Plus, it's the DCU, which so far has given us no reason to put any faith in it. However, this new image of Amber Heard as Mera gives us a little hope that something ...

Sam Raimi and Marc Webb pass on directing The Flash

DC and Warner Bros. have been searching hard to find a director for The Flash. Last night reports came in that Robert Zemeckis, Matthew Vaugn and Sam Raimi were being considered. However, this morning EW is reporting that Raimi gave th...

Final trailer for Wonder Woman brings the warrior spirit

Wonder Woman is less than a month away. While there have been a few pieces asking why there isn't that much promotion for the film lately, it seems like the Warner Bros. hype train is pulling out of the station this weekend. (Maybe they wer...

Inhumans gets its first teaser trailer and image

Marvel has been kicking around Inhumans for a while now. It was originally going to be a movie, but that was dropped, and now the science fiction comic is coming to TV (and theaters kind of). It's a hard departure from anything else Ma...

Review: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

When the first Guardians of the Galaxy hit I'm not sure any of us we're really prepared for it being as fantastic as it was. We weren't prepared for a team of mostly unknown superheroes being turned into one of Marvel's most popular fr...

Logan in black and white is coming to theaters for one night

Everyone knows that when you put a movie in black and white it gets instantly more serious and more art house. This is a scientifically proven fact. That's why James Mangold's Logan, already the most art house main stream super hero flick o...

How It Should Have Ended gives Logan a grand send-off

If Hugh Jackman had to have a swan song as Wolverine, Logan was the best possible outcome. A superhero movie that didn't feel like a superhero movie, the film served as a grim, melancholy, violent capstone for Jackman's run as the character...

The teaser trailer for Thor: Ragnarok is metal as hell

If you asked me two years ago if I'd be excited about a new Thor movie, the answer would be, "No, not at all." Enter Thor: Ragnarok from Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows, Hunt for the Wilderpeople). It's... it... Guys, it looks meta...
