A New Photo Reveals the Human Cast of Transformers: Age of Extinction!

Transformers 4

Following his epic self portrait earlier in the week, Michael Bay has returned to Twitter to deliver the first official look at the human cast of Transformers: Age of Extinction. Check out Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz and Jack Reynor in the photo below!

Although the plot of the sequel is still top secret, Dinobots are said to be heavily involved and Bay himself teased to ComingSoon.net that it will involve a “Chase from Hell.”

Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Sophia Myles, Li Bingbing, T.J. Miller, Han Geng and Titus Welliver also star in the June 27, 2014 release.

5 Craziest Movie Plot Twists



Leonard played by Guy Pearce has amnesia and uses photos and tattoos in an attempt to find and kill the man that murdered his wife. There are two story lines, one moving forward and one moving backwards, where they meet is the major plot twist that we never saw coming. The movie is about Leonard attempting killing the man who murdered his wife, so it is unsurprising that he kills a man.

The Twist: He killed his wife’s murderer over a year ago. Since, undercover agent “Teddy” has been using him to kill other men who have the same name and characteristics of the original killers. At the end we see Leonard burn the photo that would remind him of these events and tattoo Teddy’s license plate number on his body, resulting in Teddy’s death.

Shutter Island

Shutter Island

Teddy, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, is a US Marshall sent with his partner to Shutter Island to investigate the disappearance of a patient from the Ashecliff Hospital for the criminally insane. The woman shows up without explanation and Teddy continues to explore the hospital because he is looking for his wife’s murderer. A man named Laeddis was an arsonist and set the fire that killed his wife, he is apparently somewhere in this hospital despite Teddy’s failure to find him.

The Twist: Teddy is Laeddis. Teddy killed his wife after she drowned their children and ended up in the mental hospital. His doctors allowed him to play out this US Marshall fantasy in hopes of advancing his mental state. In the end, Teddy/Laeddis understands his situation. He cannot live with the guilt of killing his wife so he pretends that he reverts to his previous mental state and says, “Which would be worse? To live as a monster, or die as a good man?” as he is led away to be lobotomized.



Psycho is a famous Hitchcock horror film starring Anthony Perkins. He plays Norman Bates, a motel owner. Marion Crane is a secretary that has stolen money from her boss and ends up at the motel, looking for a safe place to hide. Norman Bates runs the motel with his mother. Bates has dinner with Crane and tells her about his mother and her mental illness, becoming angry when she says that his mother might need to be institutionalized. The famous shower scene ends with a mysterious person killing her.

The Twist: Norman Bates killed her, as his mother. Norman Bates killed his mother then developed a split personality so it seemed to him that she was still alive.

The Sixth Sense

The Sixth Sense

This movie is about psychologist Malcom Crowe helping 8 year old Cole Sear deal with his mental issues. Cole says he can see dead people, and after at first denying the possibility, Malcolm is reminded of an old patient who he failed with and was shot by. Malcolm decides to help Cole since he could not help the other patient. In the end Cole comes to terms with his abilities and helps the ghosts make peace on earth.

The Twist: Malcolm died when his patient shot him and has been dead the whole time he was helping Cole. Cole helps him reconcile his relationship with his wife so that he too can be in peace.

Fight Club

Fight Club

Based on the novel by Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club was only a movie with a surprising twist for those who had never read the book. Even people who read the book first though, probably experienced the shocking twist on paper instead of in the movie. An unnamed insomniac, played by Edward Norton, is addicted to going to support groups and pretending he is a victim. He meets Tyler Durden, played by Brad Pitt, who turns his life upside down with Project Mayhem.

The Twist: Tyler Durden and the narrator are they same person. Tyler Durden takes over when the narrator “sleeps.” The narrator kills Tyler Durden by firing a gun through his cheek, in the movie this goes through Tyler’s head and the narrator stops mentally projecting him.


Nobody likes a predictable movie. These movies take that presumption and stun you will their twists and turns. We can’t wait until another great movie with a plot twist comes out.

Major Star Wars Plot Holes You Probably Never Noticed

Expedited Jedi Training

Expedited Jedi Training

In The Empire Strikes Back, Luke’s Jedi training takes only as long as it takes for the Falcon to fly to Bespin. At most this can only be a few days. Such a big deal is made of the Jedi training, there’s no way its only a few day affair. Though his training is in no way complete, this is still a surprising cut off of his training.


Leia Is A Robot

Leia Is A Robot

Leia is not nearly emotional enough when: she watches her home planet get completely blown up, she finds out her father tortured her and blew up said planet, she had to be a slave-girl, and she found out she kissed her brother. Leia takes it all relatively well, as if this isn’t the first time she’s been a slave-girl or kissed her brother.

Stormtroopers Are Useless

Stormtroopers Are Useless

Stormtroopers are supposed to be some of the most highly trained fighters, yet they cannot hit anything with their lasers. Further, their armor not only does not protect them well, it looks inconvenient to move in and the helmet looks impossible to see out of. If good guys are around you can be sure that the Stormtroopers lasers will not land anywhere useful.

Skywalker Didn’t Give it Away?

Skywalker Didn't Give it Away?

Vader interacts with Leia several times and never feels the family bond, he also does not sense Luke until the Emperor hints at his existence. People feel family bonds between each other, so why can’t Vader?

The Force? What Force?

The Force?  What Force?

There are countless times throughout all of the movies where Jedis who can use the Force don’t. Why wouldn’t you use the easiest method to solve your problems? For some reason, the Jedis fight as if they don’t have the power to use the Force.

Yoda’s “Death”

Yoda's "Death"

Yoda lives for 900 years and manages to not tell Luke about his sister until right before he dies. At least he managed to get that out in time.

Obi Wan Is Losing It

Obi Wan Is Losing It

The order of the films makes a lot of the things Kenobi says and does seem like he’s the most forgetful man in the world. Most specifically, why doesn’t he recognize the droids he worked with for so long? He doesn’t even remark on how similar they look.

Emperor Palpatine Is Incompetent

Emperor Palpatine Is Incompetent

Emperor Palpatine is a master manipulator, and yet he lets the rebels run all over him. In Episodes 1-3, Palpatine manages to manipulate the Trade Federation, play both sides of The Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, exterminate the Jedi with Order 66, drive Yoda and Obi-wan into hiding, consolidate his power as a leader of the new Galactic Empire, and most famously, corrupt Anakin Skywalker into his new apprentice, Darth Vader. It seems strange that a rag tag group of Rebels in outdated starships could succeed in overthrowing such a powerful leader, who remains conspicuously absent throughout A New Hope, and makes only a brief appearance in The Empire Strikes Back. Even though he finally oversees the final battle against the Rebels, he still manages to get thrown down a reactor shaft. Senile incompetence, maybe?



Star Wars, Movies, Plot Holes, MistakesDespite these plot holes, Star Wars is one of the most popular movie series. Unfortunately Disney is going to try to remake it, so at least we will have that to make fun of soon.

Jeremy Renner rumoured to be out as Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye

Over the past week or so there’s been plenty of talk that the major players in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have expressed some discontent over their contracts with Marvel Studios, stemming from the disparity between their pay packets and that of Robert Downey Jr., who’s set to pocket over $100 million from The Avengers and Iron Man 3 combined (and is apparently looking for another $100 million to return as Tony Stark for The Avengers 2 and The Avengers 3).

Marvel are of course notorious for playing hard ball, and as we’ve seen in the case of Terrence Howard and Edward Norton, the studio aren’t afraid to recast a role if they feel its appropriate. With that in mind, it’s been said that Earth’s Mightiest Heroes could be missing a familiar face or two when the Avengers assemble again for the Joss Whedon-directed sequel, and if a new rumour is to be believed we might have our first Phase Two casualty. And surprisingly, it’s not down to a pay dispute…

According to a report over at ComicBookMovie, an “inside source” is suggesting that Jeremy Renner could be finished with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, owing to some negative comments from the actor about his role as Hawkeye in last year’s mega-blockbuster, where he complained that “for 90% of the movie, I wasn’t the character I signed on to play.” Allegedly, there’s the “tiniest chance” that Renner will be back for The Avengers 2, but it’s more likely that Hawkeye will be recast, and if so, he could also be integrated to the upcoming Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as a primary character.

While it’s entirely possible that the report is little more speculation, it should be noted that Renner is noticeably absent from Phase Two of the MCU, despite the fact that S.H.I.E.L.D. veterans Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill) and Maximiliano Hernandez (Agent Jasper Sitwell) are all set to return alongside Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers in next year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And considering that Whedon plans to introduce at least two new Avengers, it’s hard to imagine Hawkeye will be getting much screen time when 2015 rolls around…

5 Comic Characters That Should’ve Had a Movie by Now

Although it seems like every comic book character under the sun has been turned into the latest feature motion picture, this is definitely not the case. Walk into any comic book store on a Wednesday afternoon, while fans are anxiously picking up their weekly haul of new issues, and you’ll probably hear about more than one of their favorite characters that absolutely must have their own movie.

Every fan has their own idea about which characters need to get their big moment on the silver screen next. Some of the more common ones, that really should’ve had their own movie by this point, are below.


5) Black Panther

Created by the two most prolific architects of the Marvel Universe (Stan Lee and Jack Kirby) in 1966, Black Panther is the first African-American superhero in mainstream American comics. In recent years, T’Challa has been portrayed as a rather enigmatic figure, extremely wise and serving as monarch to the nation of Wakanda. Beyond this, though, he has several powers granted to him by the panther god of his home land. Unlike other mantles, which are often chosen as a creation of the single hero, the Black Panther is a royal title, passed on within a family, though it still must be earned by the one who personifies it.

Ideally, a Black Panther movie would be able to include the character of Ororo Munroe, aka the X-Man Storm. She and T’Challa have a long history, and at one point in the comics Storm was even the wife of the Panther. The best of these scenarios would be the return of the X-Men to Marvel Studios. Beyond that, though, he’s often been an important ally of the Avengers and could probably make for a very interesting supporting cast member in a near-future Marvel Studios film. Panther is currently one of the main characters in writer Jonathan Hickman’s New Avengers comic book series, and his cautious yet forceful wisdom and regality definitely make him a unique character, which could likely lend itself to a very different kind of film.


4) Aquaman

Yeah, yeah. I can hear the fish jokes already. The fact of the matter, though, is that Aquaman’s very recently experienced a heavy and steady resurgence in the pop culture thanks to a couple of specific areas.

The first, most primary one is his current ongoing comic book series, written by DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns (Green LanternAction Comics). When Aquaman #1 premiered as a part of the “New 52” publishing initiative in September 2011, it surprised a lot of people that had written the character off. Johns’ self-reflexive writing took the notion of Aquaman as a joke head on, and with stunning visuals by artist Ivan Reis, Aquaman outsold every single Marvel Comics title for six months, paving the way for a rebirth of sorts in hearts and minds everywhere as less of a joke, and more of a badass.

The second way Aquaman has started to shed his previously unflattering reputation recently was due to his appearance as a no-nonsense fighter in the DC/NetherRealm Studios video game Injustice: Gods Among Us. At international gaming tournaments where Injustice is featured, Aquaman is a common choice for championship players due to his sheer brutality. The story mode also emphasized what makes him a formidable character: a cold demeanor and a complete willingness to shove his trident in his enemies’ faces.

With the kinds of visuals that can be pulled off with a film like this, and the mythology that the unknowns of the deep can bring out, I know I’m not alone when I say that Warner Bros. should definitely give the King of the Seven Seas a shot. Check out the character trailer for Aquaman from Injustice below, just for a taste of what might be.



3) Wonder Woman

In a lot of ways, this argument speaks for itself, but I’ll still give it a shot. With a distinct lack of female superheroes on the silver screen, the most obvious choice is the most timeless example. As part of DC’s “Trinity” of heroes along with Superman and Batman, Wonder Woman doesn’t seem to get her fair share of the limelight, which is a shame. A feature film would likely go a long way in beefing up her status in the public consciousness, and rarely is there a character that is more deserving of it.

While she’s enjoyed success on the small screen in both the Lynda Carter series from the 1970s, as well as her appearances in the DC Animated Universe of the early 2000s, Wonder Woman is a constant source of award-winning stories in the source material, from writers like Gail Simone (BatgirlBirds of Prey), Brian Azzarello (100 BulletsJoker) and Greg Rucka (LazarusGotham Central). Her 2009 solo animated film, partially written by Gail Simone, was well-received critically, but didn’t cultivate a great deal of commercial success. I’m mostly convinced that it’s because Warner Bros. isn’t being loud enough about its most iconic and definitive superheroine icon.

While there have been recent efforts to get Wonder Woman onto the small screen, with the impending crossover between Superman and Batman in 2015’s Man of Steel sequel, it appears as though DCE is starting to get its ducks in a row for some kind of shared DC cinematic universe. If that’s indeed the case, I think it’d be excellent to have a film between DC’s “big three” before it inevitably launches into a Justice League film project. In the comics, the bond between Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman is a unique one of trust an understanding. It didn’t get to that point with any semblance of ease, though, and that seems like perfectly fertile territory for a feature film.

All you need to do is read Matt Wagner’s wonderful graphic novel Trinity. You’ll see what I mean.


2) Deadpool

With the inherent popularity of Deadpool at this moment in time, there really is no excuse why his film hasn’t been made yet. It seems that ever since he was somewhat of a breakout character in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine, interest for Deadpool has been steadily growing. His ongoing comic book series has been a regular sellout for Marvel for several years now, he recently had his own video game released, and he’s showing up in practically all of its other animated shows as well as really odd, seemingly esoteric comics (like Deadpool Killustrated, where classic literature is reimagined with Deadpool’s influence. Or, Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe, which is exactly what it sounds like).

So, why hasn’t 20th Century Fox managed to get a Deadpool film in theaters? According to Ryan Reynolds, the man slated to embody the Merc With a Mouth once again, it’s part skittishness and part uncertainty. He recently told Total Film, “That movie is alive and kicking, and then it’s dead as a doornail. Then it’s alive and kicking and then it’s dead… it’s like the worst relationship I’ve ever had!”

He went onto say that Deadpool isn’t quite as commercial as studio heads would prefer, because the character is aware that he’s in a movie, and knows all the players involved. “It’s a property that is excessively popular and successful, just as a comic property. So you certainly don’t want to mess that up. And if you’re a studio you certainly don’t want to be put something out there that you can’t get back.”


1) The Flash

The character that I really think has no excuse for a lack of a feature film, though, is DC’s Scarlet Speedster, the Flash. Speed isn’t a concept that’s been explored in great depth in any superhero films (which is likely to change due to Quicksilver’s inclusion in both next year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past and 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron), but by all accounts the Flash is the best possible character to explore that theme.

Recent Flash stories featuring the Barry Allen iteration of the character (in stories like Geoff Johns’ The Flash: Rebirth and the New 52’s Move Forward) have had the advantage of giving the protagonist a clear niche to fill. Allen is a forensic scientist with the Central City Police Department, who always had a reputation for taking too much time with his cases. When his life kicked into high gear due to a late-night accident at his lab combined with a lightning bolt, the hero was born. The concept of the Flash is really very easy to explain: he’s CSI, at super speed.

He also has one of the best rogues galleries in all of DC Comics, leading off with the group known as, well, the Rogues. Common members include Captain Cold, the Trickster, the Weather Wizard, Mirror Master, the Pied Piper and Captain Boomerang. In modern-age stories told particularly by the likes of Mark Waid, Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison, Brian Buccellato and Francis Manapul, the Rogues have proven to be some of DC’s most interesting characters. Without the money at their disposal like that of Lex Luthor, or the insanity like that of the Joker (though they have their eccentricities), the Rogues operate like “blue collar” supervillains, having trouble getting the right chemicals for the freeze gun. Or the trick weapons.

The Flash is commonly known as one of the most iconic members of the Justice League. While the current state of affairs look as though Flash may be headed for television soon, I know he deserves a bigger track to run on. Let’s hope that sooner rather than later, he gets it.

STAR WARS: EPISODE VII Title Rumor Confirmed?


Last year when the Star Wars: Episode VII news broke, there was a ton of possible information that leaked out about the film. It was all rumorish stuff, but one of the things mentioned at the time was a potential title. That title is Star Wars: Episode VII – A New Dawn, and now it looks like more sources are confirming that this could be the actual title. To read up more on that info, click here.

Talkbacker.com says that they have two sources confirming this information as accurate. At the same time they say to treat it as a rumor, but their source says,

“There will be many potential titles by now, but yes that is a title I have heard mentioned. So do with that what you will.”

A New Dawn may sound like a very bland title, but it makes sense. The source also goes on to talk about some of the other things we might see in the movie,

“… yes the falcon will make a big appearance, 1.1 scale size cross section is being constructed over at Pinewood, along with a power plant set and the famous cantina.”

You can bet there are going to be denials all over the place for information like this leaking out, but denials don’t mean it’s not true. Abrams denies everything, and most of the time the rumors he denies end up being true.

What do you think of the potential title? what  would you call the next film?

Wonder Woman Being Cast For Batman Vs. Superman?

A few weeks ago we reported that Warner Bothers is looking to cast a female role with very specific physical requirements for Batman Vs. Superman.

Via Latino Review,

They’re looking for someone in their late 20s and are open to all ethnicity…They’re not only looking for a good actress (like duh), but they’re being very specific and looking for an actress who is both tall and possesses physicality.

The way Latino Review reports it, they are casting a love interest for Batman. But a new report from Bleeding Cool speculates that this character might be Wonder Woman.

I can tell you that she’ll be somewhere between twenty five and thirty three – or at least leave the impression of a woman in that age range, whatever that might be.

I can tell you that she needs to be physically strong. They’re specific about that.

This sounds like a bit of repeat information except for one key bit of information.

This role has been pitched to [casting] agencies as a lead.

It’s possible that Bruce Wayne’s girlfriend is revealed to be Wonder Woman or that these are two different roles. Either way, we’ve got two solid reports saying that we are going to see a significant new female character in Batman Vs. Superman.

HOT TOYS: The Wolverine: 1/6th scale Wolverine Collectible Figure


Wolverine, one of the favorite superheroes of all time, was back in action and summoned to Japan in the summer blockbuster – The Wolverine. Originally only to say goodbye to an old acquaintance, things quickly turned sour as Wolverine lost his immortality while dangerous enemies were coming after him.

Hot Toys is thrilled to present the new 1/6th scale Wolverine Collectible Figure from The Wolverine. The movie-accurate collectible is specially crafted based on the image of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in the movie featuring a newly developed head sculpt, two styles of claws and costumes, and an engraved metal Japanese sword.1234120_10151634430007344_1239429858_n 994017_10151634430397344_161629086_n 1381248_10151634430327344_1390349210_n 1378163_10151634430212344_857999753_n960015_10151634430477344_489870993_n

nightcrawler almost made it into days of future past!

In awesome-that-it-almost-happened/sad-that-it-didn’t news, Alan Cumming almost reprised his role as Nightcrawler in the upcoming X Men: Days of Future Past!  Unfortunately, Cumming was unable to appear in the film, as he explains below.

“There was a time when it was maybe going to happen, but I wasn’t available so it didn’t happen. I really loved that film that I was in, don’t get me wrong, I thought it was a great film, but it wasn’t my favourite experience of my life.

All that being said, according to X Men Films Cummings said that if he was asked to return he said he would “give it a go.”

Well hell, would’ve been awesome to see him involved, but what can you do? I kind of wish I knew why he didn’t enjoy playing Nightcrawler. In my mind he’s just as much that character as Hugh Jackman is Wolverine!

Christian Bale’s Batman Audition, in the Val Kilmer Batman suit
