After shocking us with a truly… um… unique image of Jared Leto‘s Joker earlier in the week, the good folks over at Empire magazine have come up with another stunning cover image — for better or worse — from next summer’s Suicide Squad movie.
Witness: Cara Delevingne‘s Enchantress!
So what, exactly, is this visual? It appears to be a photograph that has been digitally altered with software — what we in the publishing industry call a “photo illustration.” Yes, there has been enough digital surgery performed on this pic to actually attract attention away from Cara’s eyebrows!
So who, exactly, is Enchantress? Well, that’s a little more complicated.
In the comic books she’s June Moon, a freelance artist attending a costume party at an old castle who stumbles upon a secret chamber where the magical Dzamor empowers her to fight an evil presence in the castle. Reciting the words “The Enchantress” changes her from blonde June to raven-haired Enchantress, and allows her to defeat a minotaur. A few appearances later, she fights Supergirl, and June’s villainous side takes over for good. She mostly labored in obscurity with The Forgotten Villains (she was even whimsically nicknamed “The Switcheroo Witcheroo”), but her profile was raised significantly when DC launched its New 52 comic book line and Enchantress faced off against Justice League Dark.
Weeping Angels! A mummy! The Crooked Man — and that Thing Under the Bedspread!
What’s a more fitting way to celebrate Halloween day than a marathon of the creepiest, spookiest DOCTOR WHO stories? BBC America thinks nothing could be finer, and so it has programmed a whole afternoon of regenerating delights, dubbed WHOLLOWEEN!
Wholloween begins at 1 o’clock Saturday, Oct. 31 on BBC America!
While we all feverishly cross our fingers and hope that the first Marvel Spider-Man movie will not be yet another origin story — c’mon, can they really resist telling it their way? — new Peter Parker Tom Holland recently dropped a hint about he plans to play the character when his flick drops in 2017.
He said he will be inspired by previous wall-crawlers Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield:
“I think it’s impossible not to, they were so great and such real and rich performances, and there’s obviously factors I love and I will continue to try and recreate, but I think the most important thing at the moment is making a film which is obviously of the same character but make it a new and exciting movie.”
Holland is working on Spider-Man’s debut in Captain America: Civil War.
The latest Spidey flick will be released July 28, 2017.
Here he is, in all his Clown Prince of Crime… um, grandeur: Jared Leto as the Joker in Suicide Squad, as seen on the eye-searing cover of Britain’s Empire magazine.
If you ask me, this is the dictionary definition of trying too hard!
I mean, does every square inch of him have to be tattooed? Does he need a cane?
Every time I start to think this production might be tolerable, some new piece of information is released that ruins it again.
Pretty sure this movie is going to suck.
At long (long) last, after a series of short, frustrating teaser clips, the official FULL trailer for Jessica Jones has been released! Don’t waste time reading this — watch the trailer!
Looks pretty damn awesome, doesn’t it?
All 13 episodes of Jessica Jones — a co-production between Netflix and Marvel Television — will be released simultaneously through Netflix on Nov. 20.
I have to admit that I wasn’t holding out much hope for the big-screen adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies — the mashup of Jane Austen and the undead. It felt like a late-comer compared to 2012’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. But the more I learn about the project, the more hopeful I’m becoming.
The first thing that piqued my interest was the casting of former 11th Doctor Matt Smith — not that his movie career has been exactly stellar so far *coughTerminator:Genysiscough* — but of course he has the look and accent for the period drama.
Now, take a look at the first official, full-length trailer for the feature:
Looks pretty interesting, amiright?
Netflix and Marvel Television have released a “motion poster” for their latest co-production, Jessica Jones, which will be released on Nov. 20. It appears the poster features all-new art by noted Daredevil comic book artist Alex Maleev.
Coming up this Friday is the first full trailer for the series, but in the meantime, we can have a look at the last teaser trailer, which features the voice of DOCTOR WHO’s 10th Doctor, David Tennant, as Killraven, a.k.a. the Purple Man, who appears to be the Big Bad for this season.
Jessica Jones focuses on former super heroine Jessica (Krysten Ritter), who now works as a private investigator in Hell’s Kitchen in New York City specializing in cases involving people with extraordinary abilities.
The series also stars Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker and Carrie-Anne Moss as Harper.
All 13 episode of the series will premiere at the same time on Netflix on Nov. 20.
Roads? Where we’re going, we STILL need roads!
Yes, it’s 2015 and there are STILL no flying cars — although we are making progress on driverless cars — or hoverboards — but a couple of prototypes are in the pipeline — and I’m beginning to despair of ever seeing flying cars in my lifetime. Still, it’s not all bad.
Today is Oct. 21, 2015, the date Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) and Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) visited in 1989’s Back to the Future Part II — which makes the dearth of flying cars all the more tragic.
However, in a bid to take some of the sting out of our lack of progress, Doc Brown himself has returned with a message about disappointing futures:
In the first bit of truly bad news about next summer’s Captain America: Civil War, actor Daniel Bruhl revealed that his portrayal of Baron Zemo will be quite unique.
For starters, he will not wear Zemo’s iconic purple mask!
“He does not wear the mask,” said Bruhl, adding that his portrayal of the character will be very different from the printed page:
“You would be surprised; it’s different than what you’d think. It’s loosely connected to this character. But that’s what I like about the Marvel guys, some of the characters and things they’re dealing with always reference to current events so my character is from a different area than you would think.”
Presented without comment, because Star Wars.
