Shazam! 2 Fury Of The Gods Actress Fired

DC’s Shazam! was a critical hit in 2018, though it didn’t rake in the big bucks as hoped, pulling in close to $370 million world-wide. That mark ranks Shazam! as the lowest box office number for DC superheroes. But despite this, plans were always in motion for a sequel, box-office be damned. Okay, perhaps if the box office truly tanked Warner Brothers could have had second thoughts, but the numbers were respectful enough for them to move forward with Shazam! 2.

Exclusive: Star Trek Plans To Have Captain Kirk Meet Captain Kirk

Over the decades, Star Trek has introduced a lot of ideas to the screen. In season two of the original series, the writers introduced the idea of the Mirror Universe, and we met an evil Mirror Kirk. It wasn’t the first time we’d met another version of the Captain. It’s one of the ways we got to know Kirk so well, seeing other iterations of him. All this time later, we have multiple new Star Trek series coming to streaming and the JJ Abrams universe on the big screen. Doesn’t it seem like the time for things to get a bit weirder? Paramount is counting on you to agree.

Exclusive: Michael Keaton Signed On For Three More DC Movies

There are a lot of people that will tell you age is everything when it comes to casting superhero movies. Emphasis is put on youth and physical strength. We need to see Black Adam’s bulging muscles to know he’s the strongest hero around. Dave Bautista, who plays Drax for Marvel, has confirmed that as a 52-year-old actor, he doesn’t see himself playing a shirtless superhero much longer. And then you have Michael Keaton, who is 69 years old and about to return as Bruce Wayne for The Flash, a role we will see him in for the first time in 30 years. What is the role of an older superhero? Is there one? It was surprising enough that the actor returned at all after all this time. Few have dared to ponder that he may be in more DC films beyond this one. And yet, that’s exactly what he’s going to do.

One Of The Greatest Anime Franchises Of All Time Is Now Streaming On Netflix

Gundam is often considered one of the best anime franchises of all time, especially among those who are heavily into anime, but it can also be one of the most confusing. Who may be into Gundam? Fans of epic space operas. Fans of Star Wars. That’s a lot of potential people who may be just about to discover their new favorite thing, and yet the overwhelming number of entry points can intimidate potential fans away. This is a franchise that has been around since the 1970s. There’s a lot of material out there. Fortunately, as Netflix is gearing up to produce a live-action Gundam, they’ve decided to make this franchise easier to get into by adding Mobile Suit Gundam I, II, III, and Char’s Counterattack. To make this even easier, let’s go over what you can expect from these.

A Ryan Reynolds Movie Is Dominating On Streaming

When it comes to streaming platforms, they are always locked in the competition to acquire the streaming rights of the best films that will bring more and more subscribers to them.
