New Gotham Season 5 Poster Promises That Batman’s Coming

Gotham is reaching its end next year with the 10-part fifth season and you know what that means – Batman’s finally coming to the Fox prequel series. Bruce Wayne’s destiny as the Dark Knight has been hinted in myriad ways over the past few seasons, including a spectral vision of the Bat during a hallucination in season 4, but it’s been confirmed that he’ll 100% suit up as the Caped Crusader by the time things wrap up for good in the series finale.

And just so we don’t forget, this new banner for Gotham‘s fifth season reminds us in big fiery letters that “The Dark Knight Is Coming.” Featuring the cast all standing in front of the decimated city, the banner reintroduces Gothams core group of heroes, villains and everything in between.

Aquaman’s Jason Momoa comments on rumours of Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck’s Dceu exits

As Aquaman continues its worldwide rollout, actor Jason Momoa has been speaking to The Huffington Post about the current state of the DC Extended Universe, and more specifically the rumours that we’ve likely seen the last of both Henry Cavill’s Superman and Ben Affleck’s Batman.

“”If they’re both out, then listen: It’s just the place they’re at in their careers. I mean, how many has Henry done? He’s done three? Yeah, I mean, like, you want to move on. I think if I did… sh*t, I have done three… I mean, Henry wants to just expand on something. Ben is an amazing director that is of age, and probably he’s done enough. I don’t know how to speak on behalf of them, but I had the time of my life [on Justice League].

Movies New to Netflix in January: ‘Pulp Fiction,’ ‘Pan’s Labyrinth,’ and More

As Netflix heads into its first legitimate Oscar season, the streaming giant is hoping to pull out nominations and wins for “Roma,” “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs,” and “Girl.” Lest Netflix lose sight of its one true purpose, the platform will be streaming the entire “Indiana Jones” franchise beginning in January. The streamer announced today its full list of titles for the new year, and it’s the expected mix of cult hit indies and little-known original films.

Quentin Tarantino fans can rejoice in January: “Pulp Fiction” heads to Netflix in the beginning of the month, and the classic continues to be endlessly re-watchable. Guillermo del Toro fans can also peruse “Pan’s Labyrinth,” and relive a simpler time before the Mexican filmmaker’s polarizing “The Shape of Water” Oscar win. David Mackenzie and Taylor Sheridan’s 2016 crime drama “Hell or High Water” also becomes available on the same day.

After making SAG history, ‘Black Panther’ continues to roar through awards season

After making SAG history, ‘Black Panther’ continues to roar through awards season
Black Panther,” 2018’s highest-grossing film so far with a worldwide gross of $1.3 billion, stealthily continues to leave a trail of paw prints over the awards season landscape while making history for its genre along the way. Its latest prey? The Screen Actors Guild Awards, which gave the pop-culture sensation its first-ever film ensemble nomination for a comic-book adventure. It took a spot that other more typical contenders as “Green Book,” “Vice,” “Mary Poppins Returns,” “Widows,” ”The Favourite” and “If Beale Street Can Talk” were denied.

Rarely does a movie win an Oscar for Best Picture without this SAG counterpart. At the very least, however, “Black Panther” might be one step close to being the first superhero drama to compete in the most coveted Academy Award category, one that “The Dark Knight,” the acclaimed 2008 Batman blockbuster, was denied. The uproar over its omission led the Oscar overseers to eventually allow between

Christian Bale Says Donald Trump Thought He Was Bruce Wayne in Real Life

Christian Bale Says Donald Trump Thought He Was Bruce Wayne in Real Life
Several years before he assumed the position of President of the United States, Donald Trump was just another wealthy businessman who happened to visit the set of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy ender “The Dark Knight Rises.” As Christian Bale remembers it, Trump spoke to him as if the actor actually was his character, Bruce Wayne, in real life. The brief meeting between the two men took place in 2011.

“I met him, one time. We were filming on ‘Batman’ in Trump Tower and he said, ‘Come on up to the office,’” Bale told Variety on the red carpet at the world premiere of his new film, “Vice.” “I think he thought I was Bruce Wayne because I was dressed as Bruce Wayne. So he talked to me like I was Bruce Wayne and I just went along with it, really. It was quite entertaining. I had no idea at the

Superhero Movies Are Taking Over the Oscars, and That’s Good News for Everyone

Superhero Movies Are Taking Over the Oscars, and That’s Good News for Everyone
With a few notable exceptions (“The Dark Knight” in particular), superhero movies have never been a significant presence in the awards conversation. And you know what? That’s just fine. In a righteous world, nothing that grosses a billion dollars and serves as an 150-minute teaser for its own sequel would even be eligible for a trophy; to quote the immortal words of Donald Francis Draper: “That’s what the money is for.”

By and large, Academy voters have agreed with that wisdom, and Oscar season has become something of a safe haven from the Galactus-sized genre that’s devoured much of Hollywood in its maw. Recent years have produced a clear demarcation in discourse: From mid-February until Labor Day, it’s all spandex and Infinity Stones, as moviegoers on both sides of the aisle agree to put aside their differences and pretend that Bucky Barnes is an actual character,

Is Elseworlds Connecting the Arrowverse to Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy?

Is Elseworlds Connecting the Arrowverse to Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy?
Could it be that the Arrowverse is actually connected to Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy? That may sound a bit crazy upon first hearing it, but the Elseworlds crossover event, which is set to reach its conclusion tonight, may very well have planted the seeds for just such a truth. Whether or not this is something that is ever directly stated is another thing entirely, but there is one compelling piece of circumstantial evidence to give this theory at least a little weight.

Ahead of the debut of Elseworlds, The CW released some promo photos from the event and one of those images, in particular, caught the attention of DC fans. Specifically, an image of Bane's mask that looks suspiciously identical to the one that Tom Hardy's version of the character wore in The Dark Knight Rises. Even if it's just an Easter egg intended to make fans smile,

Arrow Season 7 Episode 9 Review: Elseworlds, Part Two

It's not easy to maintain the excitement of a three-night event, and Arrow Season 7 Episode 9 fell short of The Flash Season 5 Episode 9.

The aim was to introduce a brand new character in Kate Kane, a new superhero in Batwoman, the grail of comic cities in Gotham, and successfully lay the track for the third episode of the trilogy.

All of those things were done, but the transition wasn't from the first installment to the third wasn't as smooth as it could have been.

Instead of the second part of Elseworlds feeling cohesive, it seemed more like what it was -- the boring middle part of a journey. The car is moving along the highway, and all there is to do is keep pushing forward.

There wasn't much in the way of story development, but there were a log of singular moments that addressed what had aired previously.

Elseworlds Finally Explained Where Batman Is In The Arrowverse

Tonight’s installment of “Elseworlds” might’ve been all about – or at least, heavily focused on – the grand debut of Ruby Rose’s Batwoman, but it was impossible not to notice all the Batman references, nods and easter eggs spread throughout the episode.

Granted, The Dark Knight himself didn’t show up (and we didn’t expect him to), but there was a ton of stuff packed into the hour for fans to pick up on in terms of hints at his presence in the Arrowverse. And not only that, but we also finally got an explanation for why we haven’t seen him yet. You know, aside from the fact that The CW simply can’t use him due to Warner Bros. currently utilizing the character on the big screen.

We were told that in the Arrowverse’s version of Gotham City, the Bat’s been missing in action for three years.

Yes, ‘Black Panther’ Is Worthy of a Best Picture Nomination

For years, comic book movie fans have wanted to be taken seriously by the Oscars. Regardless of how you feel about the Academy Awards, it’s widely accepted as the most prestigious recognition a film can receive. A decade ago, The Dark Knight seemed poised to become the first superhero movie to land a Best Picture nomination, but its surprise exclusion (thanks in part to Harvey Weinstein’s wheeling and dealing re: The Reader) shocked Hollywood so heavily that the following year, the Academy expanded the number of Best Picture nominees to 10. And yet, in the nine ceremonies since …

‘Robin Hood (2018)’ Review

Stars: Taron Egerton, Jamie Foxx, Ben Mendelsohn, Eve Hewson, Jamie Dornan, Tim Minchin, Paul Anderson, F. Murray Abraham, Ian Peck, Cornelius Booth, Kane Headley-Cummings | Written by Ben Chandler, David James Kelly | Directed by Otto Bathurst

To state that Otto Bathursts’ reimagining of Robin Hood is a colossal failure would be to understate such a pathetic and lacklustre attempt at creating just whatever monstrosity this turned out to be in an excruciating two hour running time. That with just a reminiscent thought of having to experience such an event again brings a knott to my stomach.

For a film that has every asset at its disposal to create a thrilling and compelling piece of narrative Robin Hood begins and ends in the most cliched of fashions of literal fairytale bookending of a graphic novel, similar to that of the narrative of Shrek, a comparison i never thought i’d write.

Linden Porco Talks Taking Over a Horror Icon in Leprechaun Returns [Exclusive]

Linden Porco Talks Taking Over a Horror Icon in Leprechaun Returns [Exclusive]
It's been one heck of a year for horror. In particular, it's been a banner year for long-running horror franchises making their very welcomed returns. Halloween is easily the biggest and perhaps best example of this, but Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich also brilliantly (and bloodily) revived the puppet slasher series. And not for nothing, but Robert Englund even returned as Freddy Krueger in an episode of The Goldbergs for the first time in more than a decade. What more could we ask for? How's about a brand new Leprechaun movie that completely reinvents the franchise for a new generation?

That's exactly what we're getting in Leprechaun Returns, which takes a similar approach to the new Halloween. Instead of messing around with the long-standing continuity of the original movies, which saw the horror icon go to the hood (twice) and even to space, director Steven Kostanski (The Void) and SyFy

Linden Porco Stalks His Victims In New Leprechaun Returns Photos

With only a few days to go until Leprechaun Returns brings the little Irish killer back to our screens, a new round of official images has just been released that puts the spotlight on Linden Porco.

The Channel Zero actor will be the first to inhabit the role of the murderous Leprechaun since Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postl played the part in 2014’s Leprechaun: Origins. But the performance that viewers will really be measuring Porco against will be the take offered by Warwick Davis for the franchise’s first six installments.

Earlier this month, Davis explained that fatherhood made him reluctant to come back to the horror property, teasing that he’ll do some more work in the genre once his son turns 18. That leaves the spot open for Porco to show us what he can do in the role, though the actor has explained previously that he didn’t feel a

‘Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’ And ‘The Incredibles 2’ Offer Animated Argument For Super-Heroes

‘Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’ And ‘The Incredibles 2’ Offer Animated Argument For Super-Heroes
It’s hard to think that any superhero film could qualify as a Hollywood rarity these days but Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is just that. As an animated big-screen adaptation of a comic book superhero the Sony film is on a surprisingly short list.

On Thursday the film’s three directors — Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey and Rodney Rothman –were celebrating their shared nomination in the best animated feature film category for the 76th Golden Globe Awards. The competition in the category includes Brad Bird and his The Incredibles 2 from the Pixar superhero franchise that took its inspiration from comic books but not any of its characters.

The vast majority of superheroes adventures on the big-screen have been live-action films with signature successes imported from comic books, among them Superman (1978), Batman (1989), X-Men (2000), Spider-Man (2002), Iron-Man (2008), The Dark Knight (2008) and The Avengers (2012).

Now that ‘Black Panther’ has made Globes history, could it slink into Oscar’s Best Picture race, too?

Now that ‘Black Panther’ has made Globes history, could it slink into Oscar’s Best Picture race, too?
Most Oscar mavens know that the reason the Academy Awards decided to expand the Best Picture category in 2009 was so it could accommodate between five and 10 nominees. The switch came about after the outcry of fans when “The Dark Knight,” 2008’s highest-grossing film and one of the year’s most acclaimed, didn’t make the cut. The first sequel in the “Batman” franchise directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Christian Bale did win a posthumous Oscar for Heath Ledger for his performance as the Joker as well as a trophy for sound editing — along with six other nods in technical categories.

But no comic-book adventure has yet been able to sneak into the main event, Best Picture.

A decade later, however, there is a slight glimmer of hope for superhero fans now that the Golden Globes have announced their nominations. That is because Ryan Coogler’s massively popular “Black Panther

Black Panther and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Score Golden Globes Nominations

Marvel had a great first day in the awards season race. The Golden Globes nominees have been announced and both Black Panther and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse came up big. Starting with Black Panther, Marvel's massive blockbuster has officially been nominated for three Golden Globe awards. Most importantly, in the Best Motion Picture - Drama category, which is something no other superhero movie has accomplished before. The studio has been campaigning hard to get Ryan Coogler's comic book adaptation a Best Picture nomination at the Academy Awards and now, it would appear that is one step closer to becoming a reality.

In the category, Black Panther will be going up against director Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman, the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, Barry Jenkins' Moonlight follow-up If Beale Street Could Talk, and Bradley Cooper's hit directorial debut A Star Is Born. It is rather interesting that the Golden
