According to Deadline, the search for Wonder Woman is over. The ridiculously lovely Gal Gadot has been cast as Diana of the Amazons in Superman vs. Batman. Many of you are familiar with Gal Gadot from the Fast & Furious movies. She was also Miss Israel 2004 and served two years in the Israeli army. So yeah, she’s a stunning actress/model that kicks all kinds of ass. Gal Gadot makes sense as Wonder Woman, don’t you agree?
Of course some comic-book fanboys will be disappointed with the casting. … continued
Jackie Chan’s Police Story series showed the action-movie legend at his comedic best. The four movies were loved by Jackie Chan fans for their mix of acrobatic stunts and goofy gags. Chan dazzled in these flicks with his inimitable physical comedy. The 2013 Police Story reboot is very different — stunningly so. One of the first things you’ll see in the trailer (embedded below) is Chan plugging someone in the head. This isn’t the cornball Jackie Chan that has entertained moviegoers for decades. This is a darker and grittier version … continued
Embedded below is the trailer for X-Men Days of Future Past. Somewhat based on the classic Chris Claremont X-Men storyline, the movie blends elements of Bryan Singer’s X-Men films and the more recent X-Men First Class. Singer is back in the director’s chair X-Men Days of Future Past and is joined by actors from all the previous films. Hugh Jackman (Wolverine), Patrick Stewart (Professor X), Ian McKellen (Magneto), Halle Berry (Storm), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), James McAvoy (young Professor X), and Michael Fassbender (young Magneto) are just some … continued
Waking up to the Captain America: The Winter Soldier trailer made this morning excellent. There are several things in the trailer that make my inner fanboy go gaga. Cap’s S.H.I.E.L.D. uniform looks pretty sweet and Falcon’s brief flying sequence is rad (though it’s weird to see Papa Doc from 8-Mile as a superhero). The coolest thing about the Captain America: The Winter Soldier trailer is…The Winter Soldier. He’s a complete bad-ass in the clip! I’m a big fan of the comic-book character and it makes me happy that the trailer … continued
Here’s a a sweet clip from Thor: The Dark World that shows two things. First, it shows how pissed off Thor has become. In the past, he’s always held back in his fights against Loki because a part of him still loved his adopted brother. Those days are over and the thunder god is no longer putting up with Loki’s trickster ways. Secondly, it cements the awesomeness that is Loki. Tom Hiddleston plays Loki marvelously. He’s evil and conniving, but extremely charming. He’s the kind of bad guy that you … continued
It looks like Kick-Ass and the “other” Olsen sister will be playing Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Latino Review has posted confirmation that Aaron Johnson will be playing Quicksilver, while the sexy Elizabeth Olsen will be playing the Scarlet Witch. Many of you are familiar with Johnson for his solid work in the Kick-Ass movies, while a few of you are familiar with Olsen for not being Mary-Kate or Ashley.
It will be interesting to see how Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are portrayed. In the … continued
RPad.TV ally PaulSemel.com has posted a pair of interviews that you should definitely check out. First up is a vintage conversation with Melissa Joan Hart, who is famous for…you know, I’m not really sure what she does or did. I think she was on a sitcom when she was a teenager and did some Lindsay Lohan-type stuff back in the day. What I do know, is the she was a celebrity at a Sega Dreamcast event I went to back in the late ’90s and people are still talking … continued
Here’s the trailer for the upcoming Need For Speed movie starring Aaron Paul. The vibe I’m getting is…not so good. Need For Speed looks like a dumber version of Fast & Furious. The charming thing with the Fast & Furious franchise is that it didn’t take itself too seriously; there was a certain amount of cleverness in its stupidity. By comparison, Need For Speed appears to take itself seriously and looks completely vapid. Plus, Aaron Paul doesn’t have the cute learning disability that makes Paul Walker so mesmerizing.
Speaking … continued
Legendary Pictures’ Warcraft movie, based on Blizzard’s World of Warcraft MMO, should be getting some star power from Colin Farrell and Paula Patton. According to Deadline, Farrell has been offered a lead role and Patton is in advanced negotiations for a lead role. Other rumored casting choices include, “Paul Dano, fresh from the weekend openers Prisoners; Travis Fimmel, a revelation as the star of the History Channel series Vikings; Anson Mount, who stars in the AMC series Hell on Wheels; and Star Trek‘s Anton Yelchin.”… continued
Here are some bits of Christian Bale reading for the Batman role in Batman Begins. A lot of people are talking about the far-less-ridiculous-than-in-the-movies voice Christian Bale used in the auditions. That’s certainly an interesting topic for (nerd) discussion, but what really grabs me here is Amy Adams. (And yes, I would love for Amy Adams to actually grab me.) Adams read opposite Bale as a favor, but imagine what Christopher Nolan’s Batman movies would have been like with Adams onboard?
I’m a huge mark for Adams. I think … continued
