Shredder is cast for the upcoming Ninja Turtles film!

Image
William Fichtner was cast to be a big part of the upcoming Ninja Turtles film but it was not revealed who he would be playing. Well the guessing game is all over. Fichtner will be playing the iconic role of the Shredder!

While being interviewed by the Huffington Post, Fichtner had this to say concerning his character:
"I play Shredder. It is cool. It's one of those things that came along where I thought, "Really? Let me think about this for a minute." [Laughs] Then I was like, "Yeah, OK, this sounds like a journey." I'm very glad that it worked out, I'm really glad that I'm doing it." This is great news and I think that he could pull off a great Shredder. I know there will be controversy that the actor is not Asian but maybe we'll never see his face in this film. Who knows. The next step is to see what the Shredder will look like and see if this casting will really fit. I cannot wait!

Ninja Turtles will be in theaters on July 6, 2014.

Matt Smith sends a personal message to fans of Doctor Who. [video]

It was recently announced that Matt Smith would be stepping down from his role as the Doctor and leaving the BBC hit sci-fi show Doctor Who. Older fans are used to the show's process of replacing it's lead actor (the show has been running for 50 years come this November) but fans who are new to the show and have Smith as their first Doctor are definitely feeling some pretty strong emotions towards the announcement of his departure. Matt Smith has always been vocal about his love for Doctor Who fans and how great they have been to him. Through that appreciation, he has created a short thank you video to all his of his fans and supporters out there.



A big thank you goes out to my friend Liz who shared this video with me!

Hayley Atwell spotted on set of Captain America: The Winter Soldier as elderly Peggy Carter!

Image
It appears that actress Hayley Atwell will be reprising her role as Peggy Carter in more than just flashbacks in the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier! Atwell was seen on set in Cleveland dressed and in makeup as an elderly woman.   "Captain America: The Winter Soldier has been filming in Cleveland for weeks and on Wednesday afternoon came to a home at 2178 Harcourt Boulevard to film a short scene. According to media reports, the home is being converted into a nursing home where Cap, played by Chris Evans, is visiting with his fellow World War II veterans." This is exciting news and I am excited to see how the reunion between Steve Rogers and Peggy Carter plays out!

In it you can see Spider-Man (in costume) standing on a New York City rooftop overlooking the city. The photo was tweeted along with the caption, "Day 96. Garfield living on the edge."

Trailer for the new animated series Beware the Batman! [video]

Image
A new trailer has just been released by Cartoon Network for the upcoming show Beware the Batman and it looks interesting. This new trailer has no dialogue but does include a lot of action sequences and new footage. Take a look as Batman squares off against some great villains in this new trailer!

The series will have the same animation style that was used for Green Lantern: The Animated Series, however I do not feel it will work as well as it did for Green Lantern. Watching Batman in this style seems a little weird but maybe it will grow on me.

Beware The Batman will premiere on Saturday, July 13th on Cartoon Network.

"What's better than one Hulk? A whole family of Hulks!"

Disney is taking advantage of his new found popularity and creating a new Hulk animated television show titled Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. This new Marvel show will be airing on Disney XD and will follow several Hulk characters; the Hulk, She-Hulk, Red Hulk, A-Bomb and Skaar.

It appears that this show is being aimed at a more child audience than some Hulk fans may like but you can be sure that everyone will at least check out the first episode when it airs on August 11th.

Watch the great trailer below!

Felicity Jones will be Felicia Hardy (Black Cat) in The Amazing Spider-Man 2! [video]

Image
It was recently reported that actress Felicity Jones could be appearing in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as the character Felicia Hardy. As fans will know, Felicia Hardy is also known as the Black Cat in the Marvel universe. News that Black Cat could be appearing in the franchise got a good reaction from fans.

While Felicity Jones may not be new to films, she is certainly new to blockbuster films and the trick questions that interviewers can throw at it's actors in order to get them to reveal some of their secrets. While Jones was promoting her film Breathe In, she was caught quite off guard when she was questioned about Black Cat and stumbled through her answer awkwardly. 

From the way that Jones answers the question, which is quite clear that she's trying not to give anything away and say something she's not supposed to, it appears that we'll see Felicia Hardy in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. I would think that we won't see Black Cat just yet but introducing Felicia in t…

Turns out Shailene Woodley won't be in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as Mary Jane!

Image
It appears that some things have been shaken up on the set of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The anticipated character Mary Jane Watson will no longer be appearing in the film! Actress Shailene Woodley filmed a few short scenes on set but it has been revealed that director Marc Webb has decided to push the entrance of the character to the third film.  When she was questioned about the news Woodley said, "Of course I'm bummed. But I am a firm believer in everything happening for a specific reason...Based on the proposed plot, I completely understand the need for holding off on introducing [Mary Jane] until the next film." Marc Webb took a moment to explain his decision as well: "I made a creative decision to streamline the story and focus on Peter and Gwen and their relationship. Shailene is an incredibly talented actress and while we only shot a few scenes with Mary Jane, we all love working with her." If I had to take a guess I would say that Woodley's scenes wi…

When Jon Snow joined the Night's Watch on the hit show Game of Thrones he had to prove himself to his colleagues and superiors. Although the show took another route, there is no way better to show Jon Snow's journey than a classic 80's training montage! "Jon Snow has to win the respect of the men of the Night's Watch... this calls for a training montage with a synth-heavy inspirational 80's soundtrack."
