Watch the entire unreleased 1994 Fantastic Four film now!

Image
The new Fantastic Four may have been a box office flop but it is important to remember that before this current film came out there was one other Fantastic Four film made that was so bad that Marvel stopped it from even being released into theaters!

In 1994 Roger Corman created his own Fantastic Four film that was way under budgeted, extremely cheesy, and all in all just plain awful. This film stayed buried for years with only photos or small clips ever surfacing but now fans can watch the film in its entirety.

So grab your friends, get some delicious movie snacks, and be ready to make a lot of jokes and fall out the couch laughing. You can watch the 1994 Fantastic Four film below. Enjoy. (?)

NBC developing a new show set in the DC Comics universe titled "Powerless".

Image
Look out, DC Comics fans. You're getting a new show that I am sure nobody saw coming. Deadline is reporting that NBC is developing a new sitcom from DC Entertainment that will be a workplace comedy that is set within the DC Universe. The new series will be titled "Powerless" and will be set in an insurance office with normal "powerless" employees who cover hero related claims.

The show is said to be a similar style to The Office and that it will most likely not involve the heroes Batman or Superman. No other heroes are mentioned so as for who may or may not be a part of the show, we'll have to wait and see. Does this sound like a show that you would be interested to tune in to watch? What kinds of claims would you think are funny enough to make it into the script?

Andrew Garfield speaks out about Tom Holland being cast as Spider-Man.

Image
With the recent deal between Sony and Marvel to bring Peter Parker / Spider-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the role of Peter Parker was handed down to the young actor Tom Holland. There are some who are upset to not see the return of The Amazing Spider-Man's Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker but it seems as though Garfield himself is okay with the decision.

During an interview with ET Online, Garfield commented on Tom Holland's casting and his thoughts about not being in the role himself anymore.
"It feels lovely, especially because Tom Holland is a really, really great actor. He was in this movie The Impossible and he was just this incredibly powerful, sensitive, just wonderful young actor. And [he's] a dancer, so his body’s the right [form]. I'm just really excited to just be a fan again as opposed to bearing the weight of it." There is certainly a lot of pressure when taking on a super hero role these days so I am not surprised that Garfield is happy…

The Legend of Zelda heads to the Wild West in a new fan film short!

Image
Beat Down Boogie has created a new video that re-imagines the characters from Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda living in the Wild West. This Western short is titled "Hang Em Hyrule" and is extremely fun to watch. Like the game there is no spoken dialogue but the way in which the short was shot it doesn't hold the short back. It has classic western music and themes and is incredibly well made. I have always loved this franchise so this short was a lot of fun to watch. Enjoy!

Frozen director admits, that to him, that Tarzan is Anna and Elsa's little brother.

Image
Well I did not see this coming. Frozen co-director Chris Buck has confirmed, that to him, the popular fan theory that connects Frozen and 1999's Tarzan is true.

The theory connects the two families from the films by stating that Tarzan is actually the little brother of Anna and Elsa. While talking to MTV News, Buck shared what he and co-director Jen Lee had discussed.
"Of course Anna and Elsa’s parents didn’t die. Yes, there was a shipwreck, but they were at sea a little bit longer than we think they were because the mother was pregnant, and she gave birth on the boat, to a little boy. They get shipwrecked, and somehow they really washed way far away from the Scandinavian waters, and they end up in the jungle. They end up building a tree house and a leopard kills them, so their baby boy is raised by gorillas. So in my little head, Anna and Elsa’s brother is Tarzan — but on the other side of that island are surfing penguins, to tie in a non-Disney movie, ’Surf’s Up.’ That’s m…

Details emerge on who Wonder Woman is fighting in the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer!

Image
Some very big news has just been revealed for the upcoming film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice! I'll make note that this is unconfirmed by the studio and should be taken as a rumor. In the Batman v Superman trailer we see Wonder Woman in the heat of battle but never get a glimpse of who she is battling. However, it looks pretty intense. Some guessed that she may be battling Superman but it looks like it may be someone a little bigger.

*Spoilers ahead!

This news comes from Heroic Hollywood which has a very good track record when it comes to getting film scoops from their sources. According to them, Wonder Woman will be battling the villain Doomsday during this fight! (This is not the first time Doomsday has been rumored to be in the film.) They talk a little about the fight and what goes on between the two characters.
"During the fight with Doomsday, Wonder Woman draws that awesome sword of hers, swings it at Doomsday and manages to chop off the hand of the beast! Wonder W…

J.J. Abrams reveals amazing Star Wars: The Force Awakens info on Kylo Ren!

Image
There is a lot of mystery surrounding the upcoming villain in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Kylo Ren. He gained quite a bit of notoriety when the first trailer was released and he ignited his "cross guard lightsaber". Since then, fans have been trying to figure out who this character could be and what stories lay in his path.

We know that actor Adam Driver will be playing Ren and that he has allied himself to the First Order which is a remnant of the Empire that still looms over the galaxy. However, J.J. Abrams recently did an interview with Entertainment Weekly that reveals some very interesting news on the character.*Possible spoilers ahead.

Speaking on Kylo Ren's look, Abrams stated,
"“The movie explains the origins of the mask and where it’s from, but the design was meant to be a nod to the Vader mask. [Ren] is well aware of what’s come before, and that’s very much a part of the story of the film.”" This is pretty cool news and makes me wonder if we'll…

At the end of its first season, The Flash introduced the multiverse theory and even had Jay Garrick's iconic silver helmet come sliding onto screen as a fun little Easter egg. Fans hoped upon hope that Garrick would soon make an appearance on the show and it looks like they are getting their wish.

The Flash's official Instagram account has released a new promotional photo that features our Flash, actor Grant Gustin, running beside Jay Garrick. The fun part is that they modeled the new photo after an old The Flash comic cover. Brilliant.

Fan art shows Yvonne Strahovski as Captain Marvel!

It may be some time till we have confirmation on who will be playing Marvel's Captain Marvel but one fan casting has been around for much longer than the announcement for the actual film.

At the moment it appears as though Captain Marvel's first appearance will be in her solo film in 2018 but there are a lot of Marvel film between now and then that she could make a cameo in.

While talking to Entertainment Weekly, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg spoke about how the show will handle Supergirl's powers and keeping the show captivating for fans,
"“to put her in situations where she isn’t all-powerful so you can root for her. There’s a tendency with Superman to make him so powerful that there isn’t really any danger. There are plenty of things besides Kryptonite that can take her down. It’s not to diminish her, it’s to make it feel like there’s actual jeopardy to the show.”" Will you be tuning in to watch Supergirl?

Celebrate sound designer Ben Burtt's work with the video "The Sounds of Star Wars".

The Sounds of Star Wars from Rishi Kaneria on Vimeo.

Thanks to sound designer Ben Burtt, sounds from the Star Wars franchise have become some of the most widely known sounds in the film industry. Who could forget the sound of Darth Vader breathing, the hum of a lightsaber, the engines of a TIE fighter, or even R2-D2's beeps and boops.

This great video from Rishe Kaneria celebrates "The Sounds of Star Wars" and compiles a long list of sounds from the original trilogy (Episodes IV-VI).
"In 1977, with the release of "Star Wars: A New Hope," Ben Burtt introduced a new lexicon of sounds into our aural vocabulary.  This video is a celebration of those iconic sounds that have been rattling around my head since childhood and that have since become ingrained in our collective pop culture psyche.  It is also a celebration of Ben Burtt's genius." I love that at the end of the video there is a scene included of Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi from A New Hop…
