Green Lantern Isn't Coming to The CW Anytime Soon

Back in March, it was teased that The CW’s new DC Comics TV series Legends of Tomorrow will be introducing a new character from the comics in the Season 1 finale. Just a few weeks later, it was revealed that Suits star Patrick J. Adams has come aboard to play this mysterious character, who was later rumored to be both Booster Gold and Green Lantern. As it turns out, both of those reports were wrong, with the season finale, which aired last night, revealing the actor as DC hero Hourman. Just hours before the finale aired, though, executive producer Marc Guggenheim made it clear that there are no future plans for Green Lantern to appear in the DC TV universe.

Shortly after the Booster Goldrumor surfaced in March, another report claimed Patrick J...

Supergirl, Flash & Arrow Team Up in The CW's Superhero Sizzle Reel

Though many DC Comics fans have had trouble with what’s happening on the movie side of things over at Warner Bros. following Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, The CW has really found a formula that seems to work. And they are doubling down for their 2016-2017 fall schedule. The network recently announced their full upcoming line-up for advertisers and media in New York City, and in addition to some brand new series, they also firmed up plans for their DC superheroes, which will now include Supergirl. To celebrate, The CW has put together a pretty great sizzle reel consisting of The Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow and of course, the latest newcomer, Supergirl.

Melissa Benoist’s Supergirl was on CBS for its first season, but rumors had been persisting for quite some time that the show c...

Mark Ruffalo Promises Hulk Will Be “Hulk-ier” in ‘Thor: Ragnarok’

26

Avengers: Age of Ultron

Late last week we heard that Jeff Goldblum and Karl Urban would be joining the cast of Thor: Ragnarok, which already included the returning Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Sir Anthony Hopkins and Idris Elba, as well as new additions Tessa Thompson and Cate Blanchett.

Mark Ruffalo is also starring in the movie as Hulk, though we still don’t have an official idea about how he and his fellow Avenger Thor might be hooking up. We got a small clue from Marvel head Kevin Feige recently, when he confirmed that Natalie Portman would not be returning for the third installment in the Thor series because “there are only a couple of scenes on Earth in this movie,” with most of the story taking place “in the cosmos.”

Now Ruffalo has provided further hints about the movie, telling Entertainment Tonig...

Watch: When the Actors In Michael Bay’s ’13 Hours’ Met the ‘Secret Soldiers of Benghazi’

24

When people think of Michael Bay movies, the think of fancy cars and explosions and whirling CGI and sometimes fancy cars that turn into whirling CGI explosions. But there’s another core aspect to Michael Bay movies that most people overlook. He’s very patriotic, with an unapologetic, deep admiration of the American military.

Most of the time this just comes in the form of his movies having a few military characters or vehicles on display. Sometimes it gets a bit more overt, as it did with his most recent movie,13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. This isn’t Transformers-mode Michael Bay. It’s much closer to The Rock. It’s all about highly skilled men just doing their job, which in this case happens to involve some guns and explosions.

If the title somehow didn’t give it away, 13 H...

Yes, That ‘Big Trouble in Little China’ Remake Is Still Happening

23

Roughly one year ago, it was announced that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was in talks to star in a remake of John Carpenter’s classic, Big Trouble in Little China, for 20th Century Fox. At the time it was announced that X-Men: First Class writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz were writing the script, and that Johnson was going to play the Jack Burton role made famous by Kurt Russell in the 1986 original.

In that film Russell plays a blue-collar truck driver who finds himself roped into a centuries-old battle with an evil sorcerer. The divisive remake — Big Trouble is one of those properties fans hold near and dear to their hearts — will likely update that story and contemporize it with a more modern-day spin, utilizing all the latest special effects. That’s if it’s still happening at all.

Garfield: The Movie

Garfield: Comic strip cat Garfield will return to the big screen in an animated movie, with hopes to launch a franchise. Jim Davis created the lazy, lovable feline for a comic strip that began running in 1978 and has inspired numerous television versions, two movies featuring the voice of Bill Murray as Garfield (Garfield: The Movie, above), and three other direct to video films.

11 Biggest Potential Bombs of 2016

11 Biggest Potential Bombs of 2016

Right off the bat, let’s just get this out of the way. We have nothing against any of the films in this list. Especially Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. But it’s going to have to throw one heck of a Hail Mary pass to break even at the box office. Movies have always been big business. Budgets have continued to increase since Thomas Edison’s Black Maria started churning out films in the late 1800s. As anybody in the industry will tell you, this is generally a business where you have to spend money to make money. And bobs are inevitable.

And that axiom has never been more prescient than it is in today’s film world. Movies routinely cost upwards of $100 million dollars...

13 Sci-Fi Movies You Can’t Miss in 2016

13 Sci-Fi Movies You Can't Miss in 2016

Science Fiction is a truly beautiful term. On the one hand you have science which many people (rightly or wrongly) count as irrefutable. The other side of the coin gives us fiction. This can literally be whatever the mind can conjure up. Merge the two and you have the best of both worlds, right?

In 2016 it sure seems like that is the case. This year we have the usual culprits. Sequels of reboots, maiden voyage reboots, regular sequels and brand spanking new films. This might be a stretch, but it honestly seems like sci-fi is the place where cinema truly chooses to break new ground.

Think I am wrong? Let’s just start with A Trip to the Moon...
