With the successful debut of Marvel’s Jessica Jones on Netflix recently, fans of the TV versions of The Defenders have been wondering just when they’ll hear more about the last piece of the puzzle: Iron Fist. Daredevil is already set to return for a second season next year, with Luke Cage expected to follow relatively soon after, but news has been quiet when it comes to Danny Rand. It seems like that’s about to change soon since we now have word that Iron Fist has found its showrunner. Continue reading →

The movie came up in an interview with MTV International while the actor was promoting his new film Burnt. The actor, who plays the ass-kicking racoon Rocket in the films, was asked about the movie, and he just started talking about the identity of Star-Lord’s dad like it was something everyone already knew.

Cinema has done a fine job presenting Batman in a way that is enjoyable for all audiences. West showed us the man with morals, Keaton showed us the hero, Kilmer showed us the bizarre, Clooney showed us everyone makes mistakes, and Bale showed us The Dark Knight in a real world. With each performance, a mainstream audience got a different feel for Batman, and each (well, most, anyway) succeeded in giving the world all sides of Batman…
What happens when Batman doesn’t just “not save the day,” but allows for horrible things to happen? Sure, we saw Rachel Dawes blow up in The Dark Knight…but considering that was the work of The Joker, that was a fairly painless and quick death than what comic book readers have experienced. What happens when The Caped Crusader truly experiences something horrific? When his response is not to prevent, but rather to avenge? What happens when Batman breaks bad? Continue reading →

Over the last year, Hugh Jackman has been very wishy-washy about playing Wolverine and how much longer he would be playing the character. First X-Men: Days of Future Past was going to be his last movie, then he was going to play the character until he died. Now Wolverine 3 seems like it will in fact be the very last time that Jackman busts out his claws. Continue reading →
