Joe Manganiello Just Shared Another Look At His Deathstroke Costume

joe-manganiello-just-shared-another-look-at-his-deathstroke-costume-social.jpg

Regardless of what's happening with the new Batman film, Joe Manganiello is still jazzed to be playing Deathstroke. The actor recently shared a new photo of himself in full costume chilling on Lex Luthor's yacht, looking uncomfortable AF compared to that lady behind him:

I love it, I really do, but when are we going to see Manganiello playing the character again? That's my million dollar question, although I'm pretty sure DC will drop a bigger dime than that on whatever project Deathstroke is slated to appear in next. Were you a fan of the actor's portrayal in Justice League?

Allison Mack Was Trying Super Hard To Get Emma Watson In Her Sex Cult

allison-mack-was-trying-super-hard-to-get-emma-watson-in-her-sex-cult-social.jpg

Former Smallville and Wilfred actress Allison Mack made headlines last week when she was arrested for her involvement in the sex cult NXIVM. In the time sense, people have been scouring the actresses Twitter to find evidence she was actively recruiting others in the cult, and it turns out she was pushing for Harry Potter actress Emma Watson to join pretty hard (via Uproxx):

Watson doesn't appear to have responded, which apparently wasn't acceptable to Mack or her cohort in this whole thing, Keith Raniere. Mack tweeted Watson on two other separate occasions after the alleged incident, heavily encouraging her to join the cult:

As it was revealed last week, Mack's group was actually a sex cult in which women joined under the guise of mentorship only to be pressured into sexual situations with mentors who could "advance their careers." Trying to back out or leave the group was threatened to be met with public humiliation, so definitely a rough deal. My question is what did this group think they could offer Watson that she didn't already have? I guess if I'm trying to make sense of a sex cult and its motivations, I'm going to spend a long time thinking.

Number of Post-Credits Scenes Confirmed for AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR

The red carpet premiere of Avengers: Infinity War was last night and it has been confirmed that only one after credits scene exists for the film. The scene will happen at the very end just like in Iron Man that started the whole thing. Don't worry, we won't spoil what it is.

Marvel films are notorious for having mid-credits and post-credit scenes which is why I’m always shocked to see people leave the theater when the credits start rolling. Many fans were expecting a myriad of clips for the biggest film in the franchise and the Russos had previously teased not having any, but it looks like we are being given one big scene.

Infinity War comes out this week on April 27, 2018.

Release Date For AGONY Revealed but Developer Madmind Struggles with ESRB’s Rating

About a month ago, developer Madmind Studios disappointed some fans as they revealedthat Agony, initially set for a release on March 30, will be delayed. Now, Madmind in partnership with Maximum Games announced that the game will be launched on May 29, 2018, and is set to release on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. 

Initially announced a couple of years ago, Agonytakes players into the depths of hell and players assume the role of a tormented soul with no recollection of the past and how it got thrown into hell. As reality sets in, the player will face the struggle to escape the horrifying environment surrounded by other cursed souls damned for eternity. The player’s mission is to locate the Red Goddess, who is the only one that can help the player escape hell. 

Currently, Madmind Studios is working with the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) on the game’s rating. It appears that the ESRB is threatening the developers with an AO (adults only) rating due to the excessive depiction of violence, gore, and nudity in the game. Of course, an AO rating would mean that Agonywill not be allowed to release on both the PlayStation and Xbox platforms. However, Madmind Studios is committed to keeping its promise in the Kickstarter campaign to launch Agonyon the PC, PS4 and Xbox One, which is why the developer agreed to modify parts of the game to get an M (mature) rating instead of an AO. 

“For many months we have been conducting interviews with age-rating companies in order not to cut out entire scenes from the game but at the same time modify it enough (e.g., just slightly changing the camera’s frame) to get an M (Mature) rating instead of AO (Adult-Only) rating. AO rating means that the game could not be released on PS4 and Xbox One, and we would not keep the promise made on the Kickstarter.”

Madmind Studios do not agree with the ESRB's initial rating, which they made clear in their update notes. Given that, the studio will include an optional patch in the PC that will remove the censored content for those players who are interested in experiencing Agonythe way the developers wanted. Unfortunately, the same cannot be done to consoles, which is why Madmind will allow Kickstarter backers who initially chose the console version to switch to the PC version once the game launches. 

Agonyis set to release on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on May 29.

BACK STREET GIRLS Sounds Like a New Ridiculous Anime

I have a prediction. Back Street Girls is going to become one of the most meme-able anime ever. Anime Mojo recently announced what the show’s premise will be:

Bakku Sutorīto Gāruzu or Back Street Girls in English follows three inept yakuza underlings who just royally screwed up on a big job. Their boss gives them two choices: commit Seppuku or undergo “gender reassignment surgery” and form an idol group. After the surgery and a year of training, the group actually becomes popular and turns into a major moneymaker for the criminal organization.

This sounds like one of those crazy, ridiculous anime that will either be the best show you’ve seen in a while, or it will be terrible. It is reported that the anime adaptation (that’s right, like most anime it has a manga) will be done by Studio J.C. Staff with Chiaki Kon (Golden Time, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal Season 3) as director and Susumu Yamakawa as the writer. The show should be released sometime this summer in Japan with no word on a release to the US yet. I hope Netflix picks this one up. If you can read Japanese, feel free to check the official site here.

Brad Bird Discusses Why Jack Jack Has All the Powers in INCREDIBLES 2

jack_jack.jpg

At the end of The Incredibles, we see Jack Jack unleash a wide arrange of powers including becoming a little human torch. Then, in the trailers for Incredibles 2, we see him able to teleport and have laser beams. Why does he get all the fun? The other members of the Parr family have one, maybe two powers, so why does he have so many? Director Brad Bird recently explained that it’s basically because babies are incredible.

...so men are always expected to be strong, so I had Bob have super strength. Women, mothers are always pulled in a million different directions, so I had her be elastic. Teenagers are insecure and defensive, so I had Violet have force fields and invisibility. Ten-year-olds are energy balls that can’t be stopped.

And babies are unknown, maybe they have no powers, maybe they have all powers, we don’t know. So, that’s what Jack-Jack was, he was seemingly the first normal one in the family and then at the end of Incredibles you find out that he’s the wild card, and that he’s sort of the Swiss army knife of powers. And that to me reminds me of the way babies can grasp languages really easily and adopt them easily.

I’m glad that this has been thought out like this. My question is, will he eventually only have one power as he grows up? I imagine he won’t. I think he’ll always have a myriad of powers, and that’s cool. I’m excited to see what the Parr family is up to in Incredibles 2, which will come to theaters June 15, 2018.

SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDERVERSE – Three Villains Revealed and Jake Johnson Will Voice Peter Parker

spider-man-into-the-spiderverse-three-villains-revealed-and-jake-johnson-will-voice-peter-parker-social.jpg

Sony Pictures recently screened a lot of new footage from Phil Lord and Chris Miller's animated Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse movie at CinemaCon, and it was awesome! This movie looks incredible and I seriously can't wait to see the movie. If you're a fan of Spider-Man, this is a movie that you need to be excited about! It has such an extremely cool and unique visual style that explodes on the big screen.

There are a few new things that were revealed in this new footage about the film that we didn't know before. One of those things is that the older middle-aged Peter Parker in the movie will be voiced by New Girl star Jake Johnson, who is actually perfect for the role! 

We also now know three of the villains that Spider-Man will face off against in the movie. Those villains are three awesomely stylized versions of the Ultimate version of Green Goblin, The Kingpin and The Prowler, who, in the comics, is Miles Morales' uncle. 

We have no idea how exactly these characters will be utilized in the story, but it will certainly be fun to see Spider-Man face off with them! We did get to see some footage of Spider-Man fighting a few of them in the footage I saw. I hope we get a new trailer for this film soon because I can't wait for you to see the footage that I saw! Here's the synopsis for the film:

Enter a universe where more than one wears the mask. Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the creative minds behind “The Lego Movie” and “21 Jump Street,” bring their unique talents to a fresh vision of a different Spider-Man Universe, with a groundbreaking visual style that’s the first of its kind. “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse” introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the mask.

Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse is scheduled to arrive in theaters on December 14, 2018. If you want to watch the first teaser trailer that was released, Click here.

IMAX Reveals The Silliest Poster For DEADPOOL 2 Yet

imax-reveals-the-silliest-poster-for-deadpool-2-yet1

We all know that the marketing for the Deadpool films can get pretty silly, but this new official poster for Deadpool 2 from IMAX takes that silliness to a whole new level! This art featuring Deadpool, Domino, Cable, Colossus, and Negasonic Teenage Warhead as something a toddler would come up with is hilarious. Only the Deadpool marketing team could get away with this kind of stuff!

After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.

Deadpool 2 hits theaters on may 18th!

Disney is Reportedly Looking To Cast Brie Larson in Their SNOW WHITE Spinoff Film ROSE RED

According to a new rumor, Disney is developing a new live-action Snow White spinoff film called Rose Red and they are looking to cast Captain Marvel star Brie Larson in the lead role. It seems like another role that she would be perfect for. 

The story is a revisionist take that transposes Rose Red into the Snow White tale, making her a key player in the later moments of the classic story. When Snow White takes a bite from the iconic poison apple and falls into her Sleeping Death, her estranged sister, Rose Red, must undertake a dangerous quest with Grumpy and the other dwarfs to find a way to break the curse and bring Snow White back to life.

This is definitely an interesting and fresh cinematic approach to taking on the classic fairytale. There's no director attached to the project yet, but apparently, the studio is currently on the hunt for one.

The project was first announced a couple of years ago. Justin Merz originally wrote the screenplay, but Snow White and The Huntsman writer Evan Daughtery came on and reworked it into something closer to the Disney animated film. The most recent draft of the script comes from Kristin Gore (SNL).

I think Larson is a talented actress and I hope that this rumor that she could be cast in the role of Rose Red turns out to be true. What do you think about the possibility of the actress taking on the role?

JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE Sequel Confirmed For Christmas 2019 and Dwayne Johnson Will Return

jumanji-welcome-to-the-jungle-sequel-confirmed-for-christmas-2019-and-dwayne-johnson-will-return-social.jpg

Sony Pictures chairman Tom Rothman confirmed at CinemaCon that the upcoming sequel to Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle will be released in theaters on Christmas 2019. He also confirmed that Dwayne Johnson will return to reprise his role and Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan are also expected to return but that hasn't been confirmed. 

Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle was a huge success for Sony Pictures. It's made over $956 million dollars, and it recently became Sony's highest grossing domestic release of all time beating out Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Audiences loved this movie and the studio betting that they will all return for a sequel. The upcoming film is already in development and is being written by Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner. There's no director attached to the film yet, but Jake Kasdan directed the Welcome To The Jungle film. I imagine the studio will try to bring the director back on board if they can.

Sony is so confident in the upcoming Jumanji sequel that they are releasing it around the same time that Star Wars: Episode IX is being released.

Did you enjoy the last Jumanji movie and are you excited about this sequel?
