Ben Affleck’s Batman Is Back in New ‘Flash’ Set Photos

Thus far, The Flash director Andy Muschietti has used his Instagram to tease the film’s costumes for the title character, Supergirl, and Michael Keaton’s Batman. But The Flash also features an additional Dark Knight: Ben Affleck’s Batfleck, and so far we haven’t gotten any sorts of teases of what his new Bat-suit will look like.

What’s Kang’s Role in ‘Ant-Man 3’?

The following post contains SPOILERS for the season finale of Loki. Shooting on Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania has officially begun. And if you weren’t excited before, you have to be now that the film will clearly involve Jonathan Majors’ Kang, who was introduced in the final episode of Loki. The version of the character on that show, though, was called “He Who Remains,” a variant of the true Kang who we’ll presumably meet in Ant-Man. As for what he’ll be doing in the film, well, that’s the big question.

‘Ant-Man 3’ Announces Start of Filming With Bizarre Set Photo

The following post contains SPOILERS for the final episode of Loki. Ant-Man has never been one of the premiere Marvel movie franchises. Its hero is a guy who can shrink, and his movies so far have been fittingly small-scale affairs (at least on the scale that Marvel typically operates at). It appears that that might change with the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. That’s because that film is the only confirmed upcoming appearance by Jonathan Majors’ Kang the Conquerer, the multiversal villain who was just introduced at the end of Loki Season 1.

‘Chucky’ Trailer: A Killer Movie Franchise Heads to TV

Child’s Play has been a staple of the horror sections in video stores and streaming sites for decades. This fall, it heads to television for the first time with Chucky, a new series that’s premiering on USA Network and Syfy this fall. Rather than a reboot (there was already a Child’s Play movie reboot a few years ago; it didn’t go great), this series is a continuation of the same storyline that began with the very first Chucky movie back in 1988. The show is created by Don Mancini, who conceived the franchise in the first place, and has been involved in almost every movie to this point. They’ve even brought back Brad Dourif as the voice of Chucky.

Michael B. Jordan Developing Black Superman Series For HBO Max

Those clamoring for Michael B. Jordan to play DC Comics’ Superman may get their wish — though not quite as they expected. Jordan’s name initially emerged as a very qualified candidate to star in the Superman feature film that’s currently being developed by producer J.J. Abrams and writer Ta-Nehisi Coates. Although no details about the film have been officially announced, it’s been reported that the film will focus on a Black version of the iconic DC hero. But when asked about whether he’d be interested in playing the role in whatever film emerges from Coates’ script, Jordan said he was “flattered” to be considered, but that he would be “just watching on this one.”

’90s Movies We Can’t Believe Got Remakes

The 1990s: The glorious era of Doc Martens, grunge, and Magic Eye posters. Those days, sadly, are long gone. (Speaking of which: Does anyone want to buy 1400 Beanie Babies? They’re near mint condition!) But the dream of the ’90s lives on at the movies, where countless blockbusters from the era have gotten sequels or remakes.

‘Star Trek: Prodigy’ Trailer: The Final Frontier Gets Animated

For the first time in about ten months — ten whole months! — there’s a new animated Star Trek series. (By the way, the other one, Star Trek: Lower Decks, returns to Paramount+ next month.) To find one before that, you have to back a bit further, although Star Trek: The Animated Series was a staple of syndicated TV through the 1970s and ’80s, including on the Nickelodeon cable channel.

David Gordon Green Is Making a Direct Sequel to ‘The Exorcist’

The Exorcist has never lent itself to good sequels, but it’s not for lack of trying. In 1978, Warner Bros. released Exorcist II: The Heretic, which quickly garnered a reputation as one of the worst sequels ever made. 13 years later, they tried again with The Exorcist III, which flopped but at least became something of a cult film on home video. A decade and a half later, a prequel to The Exorcist became such a total disaster that there ended up being two different cuts of the film from two different directors. (For the record, they’re Paul Schrader’s Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist and Renny Harlin’s Exorcist: The Beginning.) Both flopped. Neither was very good.
