Deadpool Director Tim Miller said during the Deadpool Blu-Ray release event that he and producer Simon Kinberg “have been trying to build bridge", between the two respective franchises. 

Kinberg went on to say, "with all of the deals that have recently started happening, we asked if they could get visitation rights to Sony‘s friendly neighborhood Spider-Man,” Kinberg added, laughing, “I would love to see it. Both of us are close with [Marvel’s] Kevin [Feige], we respect and love Kevin. If it were even remotely possible, we will find a way ’cause we’d would love to see it.”

History in the making right here folks..for the first time ever, a DC comic original movie will receive an R rating. The film will star Kevin Conroy who's voicing Batman/Bruce Wayne, Mark Hamill as the Joker (yuss!), and Tara Strong as Batgirl/Barbara Gordon.

For those unaware, The Killing Joke's storyline follows the Clown Prince of Crime and his incessant string of taunts directed at the Dark Knight, by capturing and torturing Batgirl. Some find the story misogynistic, while others think it's the best depiction of Joker out there.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Leto disclosed that he spent actual time with psychopaths and their respective therapists in psych wards while gathering inspiration for his role. We quote, from the interview:

EW: What, specifically, did you do [to prepare for the role]?

JL: There are a lot of things. It’s probably better to not get into it but to the Joker, violence is a symphony. This is someone who gets an extreme reward from the act of violence and manipulation. Those are the songs he sings and he is very in tune with what makes people tick. I did meet with people that were experts, doctors, psychiatrists that dealt with psychopaths and people who had committed horrendous crimes, and then I spent some time with those people themselves, people who have been institutionalized for great periods of time. I guess when you take on a role, any role, you become part detective, part writer, and for me that’s my favorite time of the entire process, the discovering, the uncovering, and the building of a character. Yeah, it’s really fun.

EW: So what did you do to create this guy? What did you go and do? Who did this guy become to you?

JL: He became a real person. I don’t know if person is the right word. I think the Joker lives in between reality and another plane. Kind of a shaman in a way. It’s a very intoxicating role to take on. You have permission to break rules and to challenge yourself and anyone around you in a really unique way.

I first started at the beginning, educating myself, researching, reading as much as I could, going back to the source material. And then at a certain point, I knew I had to stop doing that. Because the Joker has been redefined, reinvented many times before. I think the fun thing about it is when people have done it in the past, there is some spirit of the Joker essence that they keep, but they either build upon something or tear something down and start again at the beginning. For me, I knew once I had gone through the process of educating myself, I had to throw everything away and start from the beginning and really build this from the ground up. It was a transformative process. There was a physical transformation. There was a physical conditioning.

Fox announced the entire original cast will be back. Phew. Cause we wouldn't have it any other way. Any speculations on who will ultimately be cast as Cable in the Deadpool sequel?

Holbrook recently led an all star cast for the Netflix original series, Narcos, where he put on consistently impeccable acting so this might be great news for the next Wolverine blockbuster. On the flip side though, Old Man Logan was so amazing, and this news pretty much confirms it's not going to happen; so, some of us out here are wondering, why Fox, why?



Ah well, Holbrook should make for an interesting villain, right?

Doesn't get much better than this. And the faith in Cumberbatch being able to do this role justice definitely went up a little, now that we know he's at least read one comic book. Indeed, it turns out Cumberbatch's ideal way to commemorate being done shooting 'Doctor Strange' was to pit stop at a local comic book shop fully attired as Stephen Strange. A picture of Cumberbatch with the owner of JHU Comic Books, Rene Rosa:



And of course the obligatory, shameless Stephen Strange selfie moment:

After Hellboy himself tweeted about wanting to do Hellboy 3, nobody can stop talking to Ron Perlman about it.  This time, he revealed to Variety that he hears from Guillermo del Toro "intermittently" and that he believes del Toro has the story figured out:

It’s in Guillermo’s head. And he’s shared enough of it with me to know that it will be mind-blowing. I mean it will be mind-blowing. It will be great cinema. And if you are somebody who followed the first two movies, it will be even more mind-blowing because we have something… if you liked the first one and the second one, we have something really rock ’em, shock ’em in the third one.


I swear to everything Ron Perlman, if you're exaggerating, I won't stand for it.  This sounds way too good to be true.

Say your prayers that this is a hoax, everyone. For now there's no confirmation that Justin Bieber is playing Robin, just an Instagram photo of Bieber holding the script with the hashtag "Robin." I somehow doubt that's how the studio would want the news to be broken, so I'm holding out for a hero a follow up to tell me it isn't true.

From the LA Times:

MEXICO CITY — Like a character from a graphic novel, she dresses in black, has unusually blond hair — and kills bus drivers who sexually assault women. In a place like Ciudad Juarez, known for its years of brutal killings of women, the story has inexorable appeal. But how much of it is true? Authorities are taking the reports seriously enough to investigate and have posted undercover cops on buses. Women's advocates say they wouldn't be surprised if someone finally had taken long-denied justice into her own hands.
