They’ve ruthlessly murdered scores of innocent people, destroyed priceless artifacts, and bulldozed ancient cities.

Now ISIS recruits are passing through Luke Skywalker’s home planet on their way to Libya, and Star Wars fans are being warned to stay away as the danger escalates in the region.

Obi-Wan Kenobi said it best: “You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.”

The planet Tatooine from “Star Wars” was inspired by the real city of Tataouine in Tunisia and parts of the country were used as a backdrop for various scenes in the films.

Fans have been flocking to Tunisia for years to visit the locations, but now they’re being warned against it as the Islamic terrorist group ISIS expands in the region.

Over the past month, authorities have found numerous weapons caches – including rocket launchers – and arrested several men on their way to cross the border and join ISIS in Libya, according to CNN. ISIS also recently claimed responsibility for the terror attack on the National Bardo Museum in Tunis which killed 23 people.

The British government has issued a travel warning for the area citing “a high threat from terrorism, including kidnapping.”

The deal, in an all-cash offer, is expected to be announced imminently, sources said. If completed the acquisition would be the most significant in the history of YouTube, which Google acquired in 2006 for $1.65 billion.

YouTube is preparing for U.S. regulators to challenge the Twitch deal, according to sources. YouTube is far and away the No. 1 platform for Internet video, serving more than 6 billion hours of video per month to 1 billion users worldwide, and the company expects the Justice Department to take a hard look at whether buying Twitch raises anticompetitive issues in the online-video market.

“It would depend on the script,” Daniel Radcliffe told Radio Times. “The circumstances would have to be pretty extraordinary. But then I am sure Harrison Ford said that with Han Solo and look what happened there! So I am saying, ‘No,’ for now but leaving room to backtrack in the future.”

Even though Justice League's only 31 days into the 111 scheduled for production, Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. still managed to show off a clip from the film at last weekend, on set in London.

The scene opens on Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) entering his dark lit apartment, and shortly thereafter all the lights come on to expose Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) sitting there, waiting for him. 

“Barry Allen… Bruce Wayne,” Bruce says addressing a stunned Barry Allen. “You say that is if it’s normal to have a complete stranger sitting in my second favorite chair,” Barry responds to several laughs from a few press members that are around to watch the epic introduction.

Bruce proceeds to whip out a surveillance shot, which was Flash's cameo appearance in Batman v. Superman; and continues to question Barry about what he was doing during the footage. Barry responds saying that sure, it's someone who looks exactly like him, but is probably just an 'attractive Jewish boy.'

Bruce undeterred by Barry's expectant reluctance to reveal his identity, chucks a Batarang at Barry, who easily sidesteps the assault, launching the scene into slow motion and capturing that moment when Barry learns Bruce's true identity (and vice versa).

Time falls back to normal pacing, and Barry says, "You’re the Batman,” to which Bruce responds, “And you’re fast.” Then Barry tells him Bruce he thinks that way of thinking about the matter is an “over-simplification.”

Scene closes with Bruce recruiting a very eager Flash, who says he needs and friends, and also asks to keep the Batarang.

We've known for a while that Brienne of Tarth actress Gwendoline Christie would be in Star Wars VII, but Vulture is reporting her role is that of the Chrome Trooper.  Not much is known about this character, but if it is Gwendoline under there, here's hoping we get to see her without the chrome dome too.

Game of Thrones has already got the hand ampuation thing down; maybe Jaime can join Brienne for an epic saber fight?



Hey, a fan can dream, right?

During a Facebook livestream Vin Diesel went ahead and spilt the beans on what we can expect regarding Guardians of the Galaxy v Avengers for upcoming film, Infinity War:

"Next year you've got 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' coming and that whole concept started from you all saying 'when are you gonna be in a Marvel movie?'" he recalled. "And you remember the first picture after that Marvel meeting that I had where I was standing [with] the Avengers thing in the back -- some of you can look up that picture…there was this old Avengers copy that was behind me in that picture if you look back on my Facebook page you can find that."

"What's gonna be surreal is that picture is going to come to pass because now the Guardians will be included in 'Avengers: Infinity War' and that's incredibly exciting. Incredibly exciting. Incredibly exciting and something that if you were a part of our page you knew before everybody," he added.

Good lord, the promising developments just keep rolling in for this film. Just a couple days ago we learned that Donald Glover's joining the stacked Spider-Man: Homecoming cast, and now this? Gilfoyle, or the actor's actual name Martin Starr (but come on he will always be Gilfoyle in our hearts..)?


Lest we forget that Starr was also the scientist in the Incredible Hulk that ordered that clutch pizza that one time. Couldn't find a clip, but if you can drop that in the comments section! 

Anyways, congrats to Starr on landing a role alongside some tremendously talented actors like Tom Holland (Spider-Man/Peter Parker), Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man/Tony Stark), Marisa Tomei (Aunt May), Michael Keaton (The Vulture), Zendaya, Michael Barbieri, Kenneth Choi, and Tony Revolori.

The headline here says it all, guys...This piece of news sounds like something pawned off the script of Pacific Rim or something. And let it be known here that we're just a few mere months away from Megabots, Inc. sending off its deadly robot to take on whatever Japan has put together. Take a look for yourself though, of this badass bot:
