And he is not joking around
All Tricks, No Joke

Back in December we first learned that actor Mark Hamill will be reprising his role as The Trickster from the 1990 version of The Flash TV series in the current version of The Flash TV series. Earlier this month, we saw two promo videos for The Flash (HERE and HERE) that gave us our first look at Hamill as The Trickster in an upcoming episode of the show. Today, because we can never have too much of The Trickster, we get to see a preview video for next week’s episode of The Flash that will feature The Trickster as the episode’s big bad. I’ve been waiting for this episode for months. Outside of Gorilla Grodd, The Trickster is the villain I’ve been most anxious to see on The Flash. This first look is great, I cannot wait for the full ep!!

Rocky, Part 2

In January we got our first look at the first teaser trailer for the forthcoming superhero remake of Fantastic Four and in February, we got to see a set of promo photos for the film. But neither the trailer nor the promo photos let us see what Jamie Bell‘s character The Thing / Ben Grimm will look like in the movie. Today, we get to see an international poster that was shared to Instagram that gives us our first look at the new Thing.

Here Is Our First Look At Jesse Eisenberg As Lex Luthor In ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’

Lex in Effect

Way back in January of 2014 we first learned that actor Jesse Eisenberg was cast in the role of the villainous Lex Luthor in the upcoming superhero sequel Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Since that time, we’ve seen photos of Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Jason Momoa as Aquaman. Today, at long last, we get our first look at Jesse as Lex. Lex Luthor, as you may know, is famous for his bald head but there were rumors that the new Dawn of Justice Lex might have hair. As you can see below, this first photo of Lex Luthor in Dawn is nefariously bald … which is very good news, I think. Check out the full size photo below and learn more about this character as he will appear in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. More »

Jennifer Lawrence Reveals That ‘Apocalypse’ Will Be Her Last X-Men Movie

Boo

Jennifer Lawrence broke the news this week that the next X-Men movie, titled Apocalypse, will be her last of the film franchise. J. Law, as you may know, plays the mutant Mystique / Raven Darkhölme in the current franchise but after the release of X-Men: Apocalypse she won’t appear in any other X-Men Movies:

“It is my last one, actually, yes.”

There were rumors that she might star in her own Mystique movie spin-off but her statement seems to deny that that will happen. This does make sense. Now that Jennifer is an Academy Award-winning actress, she can be done with the kiddie movies and work exclusively in more serious roles. She will likely star in every David O. Russell movie that that man makes from here on out so … yes, I understand. Still, it’ll be sad once she leaves the role. J. Law makes an excellent Mystique, as is evidenced by the photos collected in this gallery. Who ever slips into the latex and blue paint next will have some very big shoes to fill.

Charlotte Gainsbourg Of ‘Nymphomaniac’ Joins ‘Independence Day’ Sequel

Well, damn. I'm in.

Wasn’t I just talking about Nymphomaniac yesterday? And how much I love/was traumatized by it? I wrote a little about how the film kind of made me a Shia LaBeouf fan. But all of the performances in the movie were really strong, especially that of the lead actor, Charlotte Gainsbourg, whose face continues to haunt my dreams. LOVED her, and I will now watch every movie she’s in. So it looks like I’m definitely going to see the Independence Day sequel, ID Forever, as Gainsbourg has now been cast, alongside Liam Hemsworth and Jessie Usher. Click inside for more!

Here Is Our First Look At BD Wong As Dr. Henry Wu In ‘Jurassic World’

OG

Way back in March of last year we learned that actor BD Wong would be reprising his role as Dr. Henry Wu from Jurassic Park in the upcoming sequel film Jurassic World. Today we get our first look at Wong as Wu as he will appear in the new Jurassic movie. As you can see below, BD Wong has managed not to hardly age AT ALL in the 22 years since he appeared in Jurassic Park. As far as I know, Wong is the only actor from the first Jurassic movie to reprise their role for this much-anticipated sequel … so he is the true JP OG. More »

Mr. T Will Star In His Own Home Improvement Show Brilliantly Titled ‘I Pity The Tool’

The Mr. T Renaissance Begins NOW

Hallelujah! The DIY network has come up with the genius idea to give Mr. T his very own home improvement TV show called, get this, I Pity The Tool. I mean, the person who came up with the title alone deserves a major bonus or something. As you may know, former rapper Vanilla Ice found newish fame in recent years with his own home improvement TV show (which ultimately led to him getting arrested for grand theft but that’s a whole other story) so it seems logical to believe that the same sort of career resurgence can happen for the much more deserving Mr. T. Click below to see the first promo image from Mr. T‘s new show and learn more about I Pity The Tool. More »
