"I want a president that's a werewolf so that other countries won't push us around."

For those of you who are familiar with Bobcat Goldthwait, you know the guy is an insane filmmaker that has made some crazy-ass films. He brings his insanity in a brand new anthology series to TruTV called Bobcat Goldthwait’s Misfits & Monsters. It's a live-action animated hybrid that comes complete with werewolves, Satan, demons, mermaids, Seth Green and more.

Each of the episodes will tell a unique story that brings together all kinds of genres, tones, and a mash-up of genres that you normally don't see mashed together. For example, Goldthwait explains, "what if Cape Fear and Roger Rabbit had a baby?" He's definitely bringing a darkness to the show and it looks ridiculously entertaining!

The series stars several other recognizable actors that include Michael Ian Black, Bridget Everett, Dave Foley, Melissa Joan Hart, Sam Levine, David Koechner, Danny Pudi, and more.

Bobcat Goldthwait’s Misfits & Monsters premieres July 11th on TruTv.

Matt Reeves’ THE BATMAN is Said To Focus on a Young Caped Crusader

matt-reeves-the-batman-is-said-to-focus-on-a-young-caped-crusader-social.jpg

A new piece of information has surfaced for Matt Reeves' The Batman. According to THR, the director has turned in the first act of his screenplay and it apparently focuses on a young version of the caped crusader.

I think a lot of fans figured this would be the case when we learned Ben Affleck wouldn't be back and it was reported that Reeves was looking at casting someone like Jake Gyllenhaal in the role of Bruce Wayne.

As we previously learned, Reeves is looking to make a dark noir-style film that will focus on the detective side of the Dark Knight, and he has an idea for a story arc that would span over the course of a trilogy of films. It's said that he's looking to keep the story grounded, but "will introduce at least some slight fantastical elements which fans of the hero will be familiar with." 

The Penguin is said to be the main villain in the story and there's a chance we'll see a few other villains from Batman's rogue gallery pop up as well. This new film version of this Penguin is said to based on the Emperor Penguin version and he's been modeled after "a very dapper looking Richard Armitage." 

It was also rumored that there might be a female version of Robin, but that hasn't been confirmed. I imagine that we'll learn more about it at Comic-Con next month. At least that's what I'm hoping for!

AQUAMAN is Said to Be “An Extraordinary Step” That Sets The DCEU “on the Right Path.”

I have high hopes for Aquaman and I'm excited to see exactly what director James Wan delivers. I've seen some early footage from the film that has blown me away, but now the executives at Warner Bros. are sharing their thoughts on the film and they are ecstatic and confident about it!

EW recently spoke with a few executives over at Warner Bros. and as you'll see, they are pretty pumped up. I don't think they've ever shown so much excitement over a DC film before it was released. Wonder Woman turned out great, but before it hit theaters, the studio worried that it was going to bomb. 

When talking about the upcoming film, Warner Bros. film chief Toby Emmerich said:

"James has done an incredible job with his team. The film is taking you to a different place and imagining the underwater world in a way you haven’t seen before."

One of the film's producers Peter Safran, says that the movie has "got the great action you expect, it’s got a lot of great humor, it works on so many levels … it’s a testament to James’ unique vision. I think it’s an extraordinary step in DC Universe that sets it on the right path."

Former DC Entertainment president Geoff Johns, who also worked on the script, explained:

"The underwater stuff has never been executed like this before. The visual effects shots coming in are just beautiful. James can switch modes from horror to big bright colorful action to really emotional scenes. He’s so able to hit all these different genres.”

This is all very exciting to hear and it's in line with everything that I've seen, now we just have to wait and see what the final product will be like. However, you can expect to see the seven undersea kingdoms, giant octopi and Atlanteans riding great white sharks into battle.

We'll know more about what we can expect when the first trailer is released, which is said to be happening very soon. The thing is, if the powers at be at DC and Warner Bros. are actually making statements about how good it is, it means they must have faith that James Wan delivered something special. 

Jason Momoa will be joined by Willem Dafoe as Vulko; Temuera Morrison (Green Lantern) as Tom Curry; Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables films) as Nereus; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II(The Get Down) as Black Manta; Ludi Lin (Power Rangers) as Murk; with Patrick Wilson (The Conjuring films, Watchmen) as Orm/Ocean Master; and Nicole Kidman as Atlanna. Here's the synopsis: 

Aquaman will center on Aquaman as a reluctant ruler of the underwater kingdom of Atlantis who is caught between land dwellers that are always polluting the globe and his own people who are ready to invade the surface.

Aquaman is set to be released December 21, 2018.

New BUMBLEBEE Featurette Focuses on Director Travis Knight and His Vision For The film

new-bumblebee-featurette-focuses-on-director-travis-knight-and-his-vision-for-the-film-social.jpg

That first Bumblebee trailer that was released was pretty incredible. A lot of fans were shocked by how great the movie looks. It's amazing what a difference a director can make. All we've gotten over the years is a bunch of silly eye-candy filled films from Michael Bay, and then director Travis Knight (Kubo and the Two Strings) jumps in and actually gives us a Transformers film that looks true to the source material and actually finally brings some heart and soul to the franchise. After all these years, Knight may actually get it right!

We have a new featurette for you to watch today that focuses on the director and his vision for the film. It's actually very encouraging. 

On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld), on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow VW bug.

The movie also stars John Cena (Ferdinand), John Ortiz (Kong: Skull Island), and Kenneth Choi (Spider-Man: Homecoming).

Bumblebee opens December 21, 2018.

George Lucas Reveals Details on His Original STAR WARS Sequel Trilogy and Says Fans Would Have Hated it

Before George Lucas sold Lucasfilm to Disney he was planning to make Star Wars Episode's VII, VIII, IX. He even met with the core cast to return. Over the years, we've gotten little bits and pieces about the trilogy he would have made, and today we have some more information to share with you.

Lucas shared the information in the book, James Cameron's Story of Science Fiction, and after sharing those details he says that fans would have hated it. So here's the information he revealed regarding the story:

"[The next three Star Wars films] were going to get into a microbiotic world. But there's this world of creatures that operate differently than we do. I call them the Whills. And the Whills are the ones who actually control the universe. They feed off the Force."

He then adds:

"If I'd held onto the company I could have done it, and then it would have been done. Of course, a lot of fans would have hated it, just like they did Phantom Menace and everything, but at least the whole story from beginning to end would be told."

His concept he was looking to dive into certainly would have been interesting. He would have really dove into the whole midichlorian thing and explain it all and it would have gotten even more weird. But yeah, fans probably would have hated it because you just can't make some Star Wars fans happy. No matter what anyone does, including the creator, there is no pleasing 100% of the fans. 

In 2012, Lucas did an interview with The New York Times, and in that interview, Lucas had this to say about the fans when asked if he would make any more:

“Why would I make any more when everybody yells at you all the time and says what a terrible person you are?”

Yeah, that's still happening. Anyway, The Star Wars franchise has moved on without Lucas, and the Lucasfilm saga is about to be closed out by J.J. Abrams. These films haven't even come close to touching on the things Lucas was planning. 

What are your thoughts on the plans that Lucas shared here? Would you have liked to see him realize his vision? Do you think fans would have liked that more than what we've been given?

First Look at Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor in WONDER WOMAN 1984

Patty Jenkins captioned the image, "Welcome to WONDER WOMAN 1984, Steve Trevor!"11

Well, it looks like Chris Pine is officially reprising his role of Steve Trevor in Wonder Woman 1984! The first two official photos for the film have been released for the film. The first one features Gal Godot as Wonder Woman staring at a bunch of TVs, and the second features Steve Trevor hanging out in a mall. That photo came with the following caption from director Patty Jenkins on Twitter:

"Welcome to WONDER WOMAN 1984, Steve Trevor!"

The big questions on everyone's minds are... how is Steve Trevor alive!? Where has he been all these years!? There aren't really many details on the film yet so we'll just have to wait for the answers when Wonder Woman 1984 is released on November 1st, 2019.

The First Trailer For THE NUN Has Arrived, and We’re Spooked

the-first-trailer-for-the-nun-has-arrived-and-were-spooked-social.jpg

I swore to myself I wouldn't get scared watching this trailer for The Nun, but some things are inevitable. In my defense, The Nun is one of the most frightening characters to emerge from The Conjuring series, so it's not surprising that even this rather long teaser trailer had at least one jump scare in it! I'm just hoping I can hold it together better in the theater when this film comes out September 7th. Check out the first footage of the new film below, and let us know what you think!

When a young nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania takes her own life, a priest with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate. Together they uncover the order’s unholy secret. Risking not only their lives but their faith and their very souls, they confront a malevolent force in the form of the same demonic nun that first terrorized audiences in “The Conjuring 2,” as the abbey becomes a horrific battleground between the living and the damned.
“The Nun” stars Oscar nominated Demian Bichir (“A Better Life”) as Father Burke, Taissa Farmiga (TV’s “American Horror Story”) as Sister Irene, and Jonas Bloquet (“Elle”) as local villager Frenchie. The cast also includes Charlotte Hope (TV’s “Game of Thrones”) as the abbey’s Sister Victoria, Ingrid Bisu (“Toni Erdmann”) as Sister Oana, and Bonnie Aarons, reprising her “Conjuring 2” role as the title character.

Jeremy Renner Says The Russo Bros. Received Death Threats For Not Including Hawkeye in INFINITY WAR

jeremy-renner-says-the-russo-bros-received-death-threats-for-not-including-hawkeye-in-infinity-war-social.jpg

I know a lot of people are talking about the how crazy the Star Wars trolls are, but Marvel has a few of their own. During a recent interview with USA Today, as Jeremy Renner talks about how he feels about having a bigger role in Avengers 4, he revealed that the Russo Bros. received death threats for not including him in Avengers: Infinity War!

When talking about the outpour of support for Hawkeye he said, "It’s a nice feeling, I suppose" That was followed by: 

"I think the Russo brothers got way too many death threats. I’m like, 'Wow, dude, that’s intense. I’m sorry.'"

That's just crazy! Death threats over not including a character in the movie!? Some fans just have to calm down! It's kind of funny, though, that they were showing Renner the death threats they were getting. It's like "Hey, dude! Look! We got another one!"

As for what we can expect to see in Avengers 4, Renner didn't offer much, but he did say:

"Everybody’s got to bite their tongue. But if you like Infinity War, there’s some stuff to come. What I do know is it’s going to be awesome." 

What are your thoughts on the fandom trolls that are running rampant online? What do you hope to see from the character Hawkeye in Avengers 4?
