Zack Snyder’s Justice League Cut Is 3 Hours Long And Provides More Depth

9 hours ago

Now playing in theaters across the globe, Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon’s Justice League has been dogged by mediocre reviews ever since its release on November 17th. It looks like things will only get worse before they get better, too, what with analysts claiming the pic will now limp miserably toward a $700 million box office tally, despite initial estimations projecting a billion-dollar home run for the suits at Warner Bros.

But there is an S-shaped light at the end of the tunnel – and no, we’re not talking about the Man of Steel, but rather Zack Snyder, whose cut is reportedly “much longer” than Justice League‘s theatrical version. Not only that, but it’s said to feature more cameos, too. Obviously, there’s an intense demand from the fanbase for Warner Bros. to release it – including a massive petition online – but so far, the studio’s remained silent in regards to their plans. »

Stephen Amell Says Crisis On Earth-x Isn’t Just A Crossover, It’s An Event

11 hours ago

This year’s Arrowverse crossover is almost here, and it’s set to be the biggest one yet. Titled “Crisis on Earth-x,” the four-part event will see the assembled heroes take on their Nazi doppelgangers from another Earth.

During a recent set visit, Stephen Amell was on hand to talk at length about the special and explained how it doesn’t pay attention to which show the individual episodes fall under and will just tell one big crossover story.

“What I can tell you about this year is you know the order of the episodes, as in SupergirlArrow, Flash, Legends? That doesn’t mean s–t. You can’t tell what episode is what episode. The first episode centers on everyone coming together for Barry and Iris’s wedding. So you’re collecting everyone from all over the place, and then it’s really effectively their story throughout the first hour, »

Zack Snyder’s Son Calls Out Warner Bros. For Meddling With Justice League

11 hours ago

Zack Snyder’s son, Jett Elin, has some pointed words for Warner Bros. following his viewing of Justice League. As fans will know, his father had to pull out of completing the project after a family tragedy, leaving Joss Whedon to helm the extensive reshoots and provide the final cut. The result has split the fandom, and Jett is one of those who, while he enjoyed the film, would have liked to have seen less “meddling” with his dad’s vision.

Here’s what he said on Vero:

“On a more serious note I did enjoy the movie, although it is clearly not what it could have been due to the meddling of Warner Brothers and the forced comedy. The run time was my biggest gripe with the movie, with events that should take a long time over in a flash; $ but still definitely a fun movie to watch, and would recommend it. »

Jeremy Piven Denies Allegations Of Sexual Misconduct With Entourage Staffer

12 hours ago

Former Entourage star Jeremy Piven continues to deny all claims of sexual misconduct.

To date, four women have come forward with allegations of inappropriate behavior against Piven, who allegedly took and passed a polygraph test on November 13th in an effort to prove his innocence. But still, the claims continue to mount.

On Wednesday evening, BuzzFeed News ran an article in which Anastasia Taneie, a former extra on Entourage, described a run-in with Jeremy Piven. It occurred on set in 2009, with Taneie alleging that during a break in filming, Piven “forcibly pushed her up against a wall, grabbing her breasts and genitals.”

The actor flat-out denied those latest claims, and a representative for the Emmy-winner has now turned in another statement to Entertainment Weekly.

Mr. Piven denies the situation falsely described. It did not happen. Mr. Piven took and passed a polygraph test to that effect. HBO has confirmed, with a public statement, »

Emilia Clarke Is Tired Of Defending Game Of Thrones’ Sex Scenes

12 hours ago

HBO’s fantasy flagship, Game of Thrones, has already fired up production on its eighth and final season, but it’s fair to say that the star-studded adaptation developed a reputation for (gratuitous?) nudity and sex scenes during its early years.

That’s something Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) has addressed before, and after seven seasons, the actress still struggles to see why so many viewers insist on making a big deal out of Thrones‘ nude scenes: “People fuck for pleasure, it’s part of life.” Say it louder for the people at the back.

Indeed, that quote from Clarke came during her recent interview with Harpers Bazaar (via The Independent), where she compared Thrones‘ adult content with that of The Handmaid’s Tale – incidentally, the latter recently won an Emmy for Best Drama Series.

I’m starting to get really annoyed about this stuff now because people say, ‘Oh, yeah, »

Dolph Lundgren Kicks Ass In New Bts Pic From Aquaman

13 hours ago

Barring a number of forgettable gigs in the vein of Sharknado 5: Global Swarming and Kindergarten Cop 2, it’s been a while since we’ve seen Hollywood veteran Dolph Lundgren appear in a major tentpole. That all changes in 2018, though.

With Creed II set to herald the long-anticipated return of Ivan Drago (“if he dies, he dies”), Lundgren also has a role to play in Aquaman, the James Wan-directed solo movie that’s poised to follow in the footsteps of Justice League. He’ll play Nereus, warrior king of Xebel, opposite Jason Momoa’s Atlantean, and Dolph Lundgren recently posted a new behind-the-scenes photo on Twitter (via Cbm) that shows him in training.

And, well, let’s just say the towering Swede will be bringing some serious physicality to the role of Nereus, as below you’ll see Lundgren performing a leg kick with one of the film’s stunt doubles. »

It: Pennywise Serves Up A Terrifying Threat In Time For Thanksgiving

13 hours ago

Last we saw Pennywise, he had been banished to the depths of Derry’s sewers, where he’s expected to remain for the next 27-odd years – yes, It: Chapter Two is officially in the pipeline, and it’ll haunt our dreams in September of 2019.

But it appears New Line has resurrected Stephen King’s shape-shifting abomination ahead of schedule. Embedded below is a holiday-themed message from It‘s official Twitter account and, well, let’s just say it may put you off your appetite.

Arriving just in time for Thanksgiving, this .gif sees Pennywise the Dancing Clown manifest on the reflection of a carving knife – yellow eyes glinting, mouth gaping – and just like that, poof, It disappears from view. Perhaps what’s more disturbing about New Line’s timely tweet is the caption it’s attached to: “You’ll bloat too.” A nod to the impending food coma pandemic that »

Has Battlefront II Solved The Mystery Of Rey’s Parents Ahead Of The Last Jedi?

14 hours ago

Who are Rey’s parents, exactly? Will Luke Skywalker wield a lightsaber come December? Should we class the porgs as friends, or food?

These are just some of the burning questions we have going into the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. But if a new report from Screen Rant is to be believed, the single-player campaign of Battlefront II may be hiding a major story clue in plain sight.

This is by no means the first time that Dice’s licensed sequel has been thrust under the microscope – its storyline of Iden Versio fighting back against the Rebel Alliance is considered canon, after all – after players conjured up a theory that essentially traced Luke’s journey to Ahch-To.

Fast forward to now, and the pendulum has swung back in the direction of Rey’s parentage, arguably the most pressing question of the lot, with Screen Rant asserting that »

Chewie Backhands A Porg In Latest Star Wars: The Last Jedi Promo

14 hours ago

It’s not wise to upset a Wookiee, and one lively little porg learns that the hard way in the latest promo for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Nipping at the heels of today’s international stingers, in which Rey struggled to contain her newfound abilities – much to the horror of a curious Luke Skywalker – this all-new preview ends on a lighter note, as we see Chewbacca backhand a porg in order to regain control of the Millennium Falcon.

For those of you who have been keeping up with The Last Jedi‘s trailer campaign, this frankly hilarious shot is awfully similar to the one where a porg echoes Chewie’s cry, as the Falcon soars through a shimmering cave on the planet Crait. Said to be the home of an old outpost once used by the Rebel Alliance – not to mention those crystal foxes (Aka vulptexs), which wouldn’t »

Justice League’s Final Scene Leaks With Hans Zimmer Score

15 hours ago

Many elements of Justice League proved controversial, and towards the top of that list is Danny Elfman’s score. Some fans are pleased that the legendary superhero movie composer was invited back to provide the soundtrack for the DC team-up film, even peppering his work with the likes of John Williams’ 1978 Superman theme and his own 1989 Batman theme. However, others have reacted strongly to Elfman’s appointment, feeling that his style strays too far away from the sound of Hans Zimmer and Junkie Xl, who have scored previous Dceu entries.

For those who would have loved to have heard Zimmer’s score over Justice League‘s key moments, Twitter user CinematicEx has given us a taste of what that would be like. On top of a leaked copy of the movie’s final scene, Zimmer’s awesome Man of Steel theme is played.

I cucked Warner Bros so here it is again! »

Brooding Fan Poster For Deathstroke Makes Room For Jason Todd

15 hours ago

Jensen Ackles as Jason Todd?

We can see it. As a matter of fact, we’ve already heard it, as the Supernatural mainstay initially voiced the role for Batman: Under The Red Hood back in 2010. But even now, seven whole years later, DC fans are still calling on Warner Bros. to cast Jensen Ackles in a live-action interpretation of Red Hood.

And though it may never come to be, a DeviantArt user by the name of ‘Wandambatha’ has produced a dark and gloomy poster for Deathstroke, the recently-announced spinoff movie that has Gareth Evans (The Raid) and Joe Manganiello attached to direct and headline, respectively.

If the stars align, Manganiello’s Slade Wilson is primed for a big, big future in the DC Extended Universe, though Justice League‘s middling box office performance will surely have Warner Bros. thinking twice about future instalments in its shared franchise. Either way, this »

Star Wars: Mark Hamill Shares Thanksgiving Tribute To The Late, Great Carrie Fisher

15 hours ago

The Skywalker twins have been a cornerstone of Lucasfilm’s Star Wars franchise for more than 40 years, but come December, The Last Jedi will effectively close the book on Luke and Leia’s star-crossed story, as Carrie Fisher is, sadly, no longer with us.

And while the Powers That Be initially flirted with the idea of resurrecting the actress for Episode IX – think of how Grand Moff Tarkin was brought back from the grave in time for Rogue One – Lucasfilm’s bigwigs soon scrapped those tentative plans, meaning Star Wars: The Last Jedi will signal Leia’s final appearance in the Skywalker saga.

It’ll be a bittersweet finale, too, given writer-director Rian Johnson vowed to write her out of the story, rather than killing off the Resistance General a la Han Solo. Mind you, Johnson has so far been coy about a potential Skywalker reunion taking place in The Last Jedi, »

Doctor Who Fans In The UK Can See The Christmas Special Early

16 hours ago

We’re now just over a month away from December 25th, and you know what that means – Doctor Who is almost back on our screens!

This year’s yuletide episode is more special than most, though, and that’s due to a bunch of reasons. For one, it sees the return of the First Doctor (as played by Harry Potter‘s David Bradley) as the original Time Lord teams up with his Twelfth self. As well as supporting roles for outgoing companion Pearl Mackie and Who stalwart Mark Gatiss, the special – titled “Twice Upon A Time” – will also be Peter Capaldi’s final bow in the lead role. As you surely know, Jodie Whittaker is set to takeover as the Thirteenth Doctor, with her first scene dropping at the end of the episode.

If you can’t wait until December 25th for this special treat, you might just be in luck, »

Jeremy Piven Facing More Sexual Harassment Allegations

16 hours ago

Jeremy Piven has been reeling under a stream of accusations of sexual harassment and assault over the past few weeks. Earlier in the month, reality TV star Ariane Bellamar explained how the actor sexually assaulted her during the filming of Entourage, cornering her in his trailer where he, according to Bellamar, “forcibly fondled my breasts & bum.”

This was followed by Longmire actress Cassidy Freeman writing on Instagram: “I know what you did and attempted to do to me when I was far too young. That I know. And you know it too. Unless there were so many of us, that you can’t remember. I hope from now on, you keep it in your pants and you never get to do it again.”

Now, in the most shocking account yet, Anastasia Taneie, a woman who worked as an extra on Entourage, has come forth with allegations that the actor “forcibly »

Jason Momoa Details One Justice League Deleted Scene Featuring Aquaman And Diana

17 hours ago

When one looks back on Justice League‘s trailer campaign, it becomes clear that Warner Bros. cut a lot of scenes in the build-up to November 17th.

Hell, some fans have even taken it upon themselves to launch a petition calling for Zack Snyder’s edition, one that’s purportedly “much longer” and teeming with cameos, to be released on home video. It’s since collected more than 100,000 signatures, which goes to show that when it comes to Justice League, that fabled director’s cut is no laughing matter. Indeed, if you’re curious, a ton of alleged deleted scenes leaked onto the interwebs just this morning, including one in which Cyborg learns to fly.

Now, Jason Momoa has peeled back the curtain just a little bit more to describe a deleted scene featuring Diana Prince and his Arthur Curry.

While chatting to Rajeev Masand (via ComicBook.com), Momoa spoke about his history with Aquaman, »

Friday The 13th Helmer Reveals His Insane Pitch For A Jason Lives Follow-Up

17 hours ago

Almost 30 years ago, director Tom McLoughlin brought Jason Voorhees back from the brink for the appropriately titled sequel, Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives. But it turns out McLoughlin initially planned for a follow-up back in ’86, and let’s just say things got weird.

While appearing on the latest episode of Post Mortem (with a tip of the hat to Bloody Disgusting), Tom McLoughlin spoke to fellow horror director Mick Garris about his proposed Jason Lives sequel, and how it would’ve drafted comedy duo Cheech and Chong (!) into the equation.

As McLoughlin recalls down below, this idea came into being soon after producer Frank Mancuso Jr. discovered that New Line held the screen rights to Freddy Krueger, thereby nixing any potential crossover with A Nightmare on Elm Street at the time.

[Producer] Frank Mancuso Jr. came to me… he wanted me to do another film after we did [Jason Lives]. He said, »

Zack Snyder’s Deleted Justice League Scenes Leak Online

18 hours ago

These days, every big budget comic book movie is met with speculation about the amount of “studio interference” involved in production, but with Justice League, this speculation is augmented by the question of where director Zack Snyder’s work ends, and where the additional material and reshoots of Joss Whedon begins.

This is because Snyder had to depart the project after filming had ended, and Whedon – who had already been working on the script – was drafted in to handle post-production and reshoots. Producer Charles Roven subsequently conceded that the theatrical release consisted of about 15-20% Joss Whedon footage, but we suspect that might be underselling it a bit.

Now, six days on from release, and fans are already petitioning Warner Bros. for a Director’s Cut – that online petition has so far garnered more than 100,000 signatures – while Aquaman himself, Jason Momoa, believes there is enough leftover footage to make a second movie. »

Here’s What X-23 May Look Like As All-New Wolverine

18 hours ago

Between them, 20th Century Fox, James Mangold (Logan) and comic book scribe Craig Kyle (Thor: Ragnarok) are dreaming up a spinoff movie for X-23, the young mutant brought to life with real intensity by the up-and-coming Dafne Keen.

It’s still gestating in the formative stages of development, mind you, given Fox only made the project official late last month, but thanks to concept artist Masaolab (via ComicBook.com), we now have a sneak peek at what Dafne Keen may look like as “All-New Wolverine.”

Kitted out in full X-Men gear, this concept art is something special, as it imagines Laura/X-23 donning the adamantium claws as Wolverine’s one true successor. Loosely based on the aesthetic of Tom Taylor’s comic book series, below you’ll see Keen in action as X-23, who appears to be smashing her way through some sort of concrete wall. In addition, there’s »

John Boyega Says The Porgs Of Star Wars: The Last Jedi Can Be “Really Freaky”

19 hours ago

What are porgs, exactly?

That’s a very good question. For one, they’re the flightless, bug-eyed avians that are native to Ahch-To, the oceanic planet on which Luke Skywalker first comes into contact with Rey. But are they food, or friends?

It’s a conundrum that has stirred up heated debate within the Star Wars community, and we fully expect that conversation to roll over until The Last Jedi‘s release on December 15th. But as part of its ongoing coverage, Entertainment Weekly has today unveiled the closest thing to a porg investigation as we’re likely to get, and it turns out John Boyega (Finn) isn’t all that fussed on Ahch-To’s furry critters.

I just remember doing some stuff and seeing a lot of porgs around. And they are interesting, but for me, I had a love/hate relationship with them. They’re very, very cute, »
