It was also mentioned that Joy and Ward Meachum will be a part of the story. They are relatives of Harold Meachum, who killed Iron Fist's father Wendell Rand. He was Harold's business partner. In the comic, Danny Rand returns to New York as Iron Fist to seek revenge against Harold.
There's no official word on if these character will be included so treat this as a rumor for now. There's also no definitive word yet on when the series will premiere on Netflix.
Wonder Woman is finally going to make her feature film debut in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. After that, she is going to get the first of (probably) many solo films. With the excitement building up around the heroine, Variant has produced a video that breaks down some of the popular alternate versions of Wonder Woman.
It also offers us an interesting look at the history of the character. As I was watching the video, I was seeing some pretty cool Wonder Woman designs that would make for some great cosplay opportunities.
Earlier this week, we saw a few Suicide Squad character logo released promoting Harley's Tattoo Parlor at SXSW. Apparently there's a chance that the movie might premiere at the festival. Today we have the full collection of those character logos as well as a new poster released by director David Ayer.
It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
Suicide Squad stars Will Smith as Deadshot, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Jared Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, with Raymond Olubawale as King Shark, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, and Adam Beach as Slipknot.
I don’t see The Joker as the kind of guy that would be hanging out at the beach a lot, but this swimsuit inspired by the Batman villain is so fantastically cute in every way. I could see Harley Quinn sporting this at the beach!
This is a Hot Topic product and the top will run you $34.50 and if you want the matching bottoms, which of course you do, it will run you another $34.50.
Late last year, we learned that David Fincher and Charlize Theron were teaming up for a Netflix series called Mindhunter. Fincher has cast Holt McCallany (Lights Out) in the lead role; the actor previously worked with Fincher on films such as Alien 3 and Fight Club.
Mindhunter is based on the 1996 book Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit by former special agent John Douglas and Mark Olshaker. It offers the behind the scenes story of some of Douglas’ highest-profile cases, which includes the man who hunted prostitutes in Alaska, a child murderer in Atlanta, and Seattle’s Green River killer.
According to Deadline, the series will be set in 1979, and that “centers on the inquisitive and skilled FBI Agent Bill Tench (McCallany). Along with fellow serial killer investigator in the behavioral science unit, FBI agent Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff), Tench interviews serial killers to help them solve current murders.” The series will also co-star former Fringe actress Anna Torv, who plays a psychologist.
This is a perfect project for Fincher to latch onto and I’m looking forward to seeing how it all comes together. Here’s the description of the book:
He has hunted some of the most notorious and sadistic criminals of our time: The Trailside Killer in San Francisco, the Atlanta Child murderer. He has confronted, interviewed and researched dozens of serial killers and assassins, including Charles Manson, Richard Speck, John Wayne Gacy, and James Earl Ray – for a landmark study to understand their motives. To get inside their minds. He is Special Agent John Douglas, the model for law enforcement legend Jack Crawford in Thomas Harris’s thrillers Red Dragon and The Silence of the Lambs, and the man who ushered in a new age in behavioral science and criminal profiling. Recently retired after twenty-five years of service, John Douglas can finally tell his unique and compelling story.
McCallany will next be seen in Jack Reacher 2, Clint Eastwood’s Sully, and Monster Trucks with Rob Lowe and Lucas Till.
I was blown away when I came across this female Aquaman cosplay. I’ve never seen this superhero cosplayed as a woman before, and cosplayer Raquel Sparrow brilliantly pulls it off better than any male cosplayer. The photos that you see here were taken by Daryl Lynch. Make sure to check out the full collection of photos below!
In the ever-evolving television world, the need for a big star for a new television show seems like a must. It appears that the TV version of The Exorcisthas found their big name — sort of.
According to Deadline, Academy Award-winning Geena Davis has signed on to star in Fox’s pilot of The Exorcist. The show will be written by Jeremy Slater, and it's being called a “modern reinvention of the book." Here is rundown of Davis' character:
Davis will play Angela Rance. Naturally beautiful, regal and proud but weighed down by stress, Angela does everything she can to stay positive and keep her faith even though her family is currently struggling. She can’t help but think, however, if perhaps her nightmares about a demon are a sign of what’s wrong.
In this version, we are getting a whole new set of priests, played by Alfonso Herrera and Ben Daniels. We are also getting a new family for them to deal with.
I am a fan of the original movie, so I am mildly interested to see what they are going to do with this show. I am sure that shows like American Horror Story have paved the way for a show like this and I am sure they are going to try to push the boundaries just like AHS.
Do you think we need another show in that genre? I am not sure that we do.
This Batmobile suitcase is one of the coolest suitcases I’ve ever seen. As you can see, it’s based on the design from the upcoming film, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. There are a few problems with it, though. First and foremost, it’s only for kids and there needs to be an adult-sized version of it. The suitcase is pretty small and unfortunately it doesn’t hold much. I guess functionality doesn’t really matter when you’re walking through the airport and everyone is envying your kid's badass suitcase...if the airport even allows it through security. After all, the suitcase comes complete with a miniature set of machine guns on the front.
The suitcase comes from Toy People, and if you want one, you’ll have to drop $100. If you’re all about the cool factor, then it’s definitely worth it. If you want something that actually manages to fit more than a pair of Batman pajamas and a water bottle, you might not want to drop that kind of cash on this thing.
Even if you think you've never heard Dire Straits' 1985 song "Walk of Life," I can almost guarantee you'll recognize it when that opening synthesizer riff comes alive. It's a brilliant representation of a specific kind of '80s music that sounded 100% earnest and genuine at the time of its release, but has since aged into a perfectly cheesy relic of the era. It also happens to be the perfect closing song for every single movie.
That's the theory behind the Walk of Life Project, a passion project for writer and editor Peter Salomone that edits the song over the closing credits of movies ranging from Casablanca to The Dark Knight Rises. Your mileage may vary, of course, but I found this to be one of those things that is pretty funny at first, actually loses its humor after a while, but then comes full swing all the way around to being hilarious.
