By Nicole Drum - September 23, 2019 06:47 pm EDT Share 1 Comments 1 After a period of relative quiet regarding developments with Matt Reeves' The Batman, Monday is proving to be a busy news day for the upcoming Warner Bros. film. First, it was reported that Jeffrey Wright is in talks to play Commissioner Jim Gordon and now Deadline is reporting that Jonah Hill is also in talks to appear in the film. Per the report, no deal has been signed yet, but the two-time Oscar nominated Hill is in talks to play a villain in the film. The report did not indicate a specific villain at the time of this article's writing, though previous canonical Batman villains to grace the big screen have included The Joker, The Riddler, Scarecrow, Penguin, Bane, Poison Ivy, Catwoman and Ra's al Ghul. There have been previous reports that Hill was rumored to be inconsideration for the role of Penguin for The Batman. In addition to making his directorial debut with A24's Mid90s in 2018, … [Read more...] about The Batman: Jonah Hill in Talks for Villain Role

By Jenna Anderson - December 6, 2019 01:03 am EST Share 0 Comments 0 We're days away from the beginning of "Crisis on Infinite Earths", the biggest crossover yet for The CW's Arrowverse of shows. The four-night, five-episode event is set to take Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Batwoman, Legends of Tomorrow, and a ton of other DCTV properties to new heights, as the fate of the multiverse as we know it hangs in the balance. Even before "Crisis" has begun, the event has drawn comparisons to another franchise-defining event that debuted in 2019 -- Marvel's Avengers: Endgame. Both events definitely have a similar kind of "every hero united together" kind of feel, and the pending fates of Oliver Queen/Green Arrow (Stephen Amell) and Barry Allen/The Flash (Grant Gustin) feel slightly reminiscent of the endings Endgame gave to Iron Man and Captain America. In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, crossover showrunner Marc Guggenheim addressed those comparisons and gave … [Read more...] about Don’t Compare “Crisis on Infinite Earths” to Avengers: Endgame
By Kofi Outlaw - September 4, 2018 02:35 am EDT Share 16 Comments 16 The Arrowverse is a steadily expanding superhero universe — but eventually, it will inevitably have to say goodbye to its founding series, Arrow, or at the very least the titular character of Oliver Queen / Green Arrow. No one realizes the inevitable future of Arrow more than its star, Stephen Amell, and the actor recently opened up about what he envisions as Oliver Queen's final story arc. Amell was recently a guest on Smallville actor Michael Rosenbaum's Inside of You podcast, where the two actors compared notes about what it's like to take on the creative challenge of playing a character for nearly a decade of time. Rosenbaum relates the tale of how he had to escape his Smallville role as Lex Luthor, feeling trapped in his career long before the show ended. That piece of personal history prompts the question of whether Amell similarly feels typecast, or if his role feels redundant after … [Read more...] about ‘Arrow’s Stephen Amell on What Oliver Queen’s Final Story Arc Needs to Be
By Jenna Anderson - December 20, 2018 11:14 am EST Share 10 Comments 10 The Arrowverse's "Elseworlds" crossover concluded on a major high note -- but it left a pretty major question unanswered. Major spoilers for tonight's episode of Supergirl, "Elseworlds Part 3", below! The episode saw Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), and Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist) in an entirely new predicament, as Dr. John Deegan (Jeremy Davies) decided to manipulate reality in his favor once again, turning himself into an evil version of Superman (Tyler Hoechlin). Barry and Kara agreed to race around the Earth in separate directions, as a way to stop time and therefore stop Deegan from rewriting reality. Oliver knew that that option would kill the heroes, which led to him confronting The Monitor (LaMonica Garrett), asking what would need to be done to change Barry and Kara's destiny and leave them alive to help stop the oncoming "crisis". The Monitor … [Read more...] about “Elseworlds”: What Deal Did Oliver Make With The Monitor?
By Kofi Outlaw - October 18, 2019 03:27 pm EDT Share 0 Comments 0 Earlier this week we got the news that Venom 2 had added a second villain alongside Woody Harrelson's Cletus Kasady / Carnage: Shriek, the sonic-based villainess who became Carnage's top lieutenant / lover in the famous "Maximum Carnage" crossover event in '90s Marvel Comics, which featured Venom and Spider-Man teaming up to take on Carnage, Shriek and a team of monstrous killers terrorizing New York City.
