Anna Paquin Confirms she’s not Rogue in the Gambit Movie

Anna Paquin casually went on record to indicate that she – and therefore Rogue – would not be in the upcoming Gambit film. After being asked a few times on Twitter if she would appear she very succinctly said “no” without elaboration or opinion. I guess that’s when things blew up a bit and she clarified that she was just reacting based on what she knows. No one had approached her about being in the film....

Behind the Scenes – Designing DC’s Holy Trinity

In the above video from this week’s New York City ComicCon, we get to see some inside information about how they designed Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman’s looks for this version of the characters. What surprised me was costume designer Michael Wilkinson dropping that Diana (Wonder Woman) is immortal. I don’t recall her ever being immortal but that her super powers of resilience make her very resistant to aging....

Dimensions Voice Cast includes Pratt, Fox and Banks!

Lego Dimensions is set to take over the new gaming subgenre of console games that includes figurines to unlock characters and levels in game.

Many of the original voice actors of those characters have returned to their iconic roles just for the video game! Chriss Pratt, Gary Oldman Michael J Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Joel McHale, Alison Brie...

Is Deckard a Replicant?

The Blade Runner sequel will finally dispel one of the mysteries we have never really wanted to know. Is Rick Deckard actually a Replicant? ComicBook reports: Director Ridley Scott has since thrown such ambiguity to the wind, confirmed that Rick Deckard was definitely a replicant. But something doesn’t add up. Replicants were supposed to have a built in lifespan of 4 years, but Harrison Ford is reprising his role as Deckard the in the...

Electro Woman and Dyna Girl – Then, When and Now!

The super stoner Krofft Brothers, Sid and Marty may have given you nightmares with their whimsical but super creepy H.R.Puffinstuff, but most of you won’t remember Electro Woman and Dyna Girl. The show was meant to be a send up spoof of the 1966 Batman series, but didn’t last past its 16 episode “season”. It appeared as segments of the Krofft Supershow that also brought you Schlepp the Wonder Bug (a spoof of...

More Speculation on The Hulk in Civil War

It’s been said already that The Hulk will be absent for Captain America 3: Civil War, and quite frankly that might be the only thing that stops this from being Avengers: Civil War. According to a translated portion of a news article in a German Tabloid ComicBook Resources quotes: While some details have most likely been lost in translation, Mark Ruffalo is Mark Ruffalo in any language. The report notes that the actors hung out...

Deadpool will be Rated R

Of all the ways possible to break the news that Deadpool will be Rated R (AA in Canada), this may well be the BEST way! Ryan Reynolds reprises his role as Deadpool, and confirms that this is a different take on the presumed fate of Deadpool in Wolverine Origins (presumably altered by the events in Days of Future Past) and then rather surprisingly delivers the news that Deadpool will be Rated R. If this is even a hint at the type of...

Robert Downey Jr Delivers Bionic Arm

Technology is a beautiful thing, but not nearly as beautiful as the joy and wonderment it could bring to a child who doesn’t have an arm! See, Alex was born with one underdeveloped arm, and instead of having to rewatch Finding Nemo a dozen times to see that he is special even with one tiny fin, a tech company decided to help him out. Then comes Albert Manero. He is a student that builds 3d Printed robotics and he developed a low...

The latest Mission Impossible not only has a name – Rogue Nation – but now it’s got a trailer… and TOM CRUISE! I have always liked the action and intrigue of the Mission Impossible films, and Jeremy Renner is a nice addition but its always been about Cruise. And Simon Pegg! I look forward to this for Pegg...

50 Shades of Wayne Mashup Trailer is Creepy

With the Twilightesque blind popularity of 50 Shades of Rape Grey, it was only a matter of time before it was spoofed. But when this particular spoof artist decided to mashup another famous fictional millionaire into the trailer, we saw an even darker side of the man who would be the Dark Knight. Bruce Wayne. I wonder if this works so well because of the scenes in which Bruce was trying to be the irresponsible millionaire playboy jerk...

First Look at Lego Jurassic World Toys

The all new Jurassic World is getting the Lego treatment and through that we get a little insight into the film itself. Many of the toys feature details we have already seen in the trailers such as the gerbil ball people movers and hints that they have engineered a brand new dino that will prove to be a bad idea. Guessing by the name of the above set, “Indominus Rex” will be a white carnivore not to be messed with....

G33KHQ shares: Gina Carano has just been cast to play the character Angel Dust. The character Angel Dust in the Marvel comics is named because of her mutant ability to jack her adrenaline levels granting her superhuman strength – much like the PCP drug known by the sane code...

Poltergeist Trailer Online

I am not against remakes. Any film – original or not – has the chance to be better. It is actually HARDER to make a film based on an existing film that can be better than the original, but that’s not to say it cannot be done. So I welcome any attempt to try. But one film I just didn’t think needed retelling was Poltergeist. The original film in 1982 scared the crap out of me. It just hit all the right things to...

Shia LeBeouf – The Song!

If you haven’t seen this already, you really need to sit through it and watch every last second of the insanely beautiful and thought provoking song about Shia LaBeouf This is brilliantly crafted and certainly worth the three and a half minutes of your life that this will forever burn in your mind. LaBeouf has a reputation for the very strange, but this kind of gives me a little more respect for the guy (outside of getting to...

This episode of Podcast with a Porpoise is on my drive home from the day job while I discuss re-watching the Star Wars films in anticipation of Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Do the films make more sense if we watch them out of order? I offer up for your consideration, the Machete Order! So what’s your thoughts? Still not enough to make you watch the prequels? Already done this? Let me...

Cartoon Brew shares: The beleaguered DreamWorks Animation just announced in a written statement that it will eliminate approximately 500 jobs at its company, far exceeding the previously anticipated number of layoffs.

Young X-Men Cast for X-Men Apocalypse!

It looks like the younger versions of the “present day” X-Men have been cast for the 80s-centric X-Men Apocalypse. Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark in Game of Thrones) will be taking on the role of the Young Jean Grey. I like this not just because of her natural red hair, but because I feel the actress really has the ability to portray the shy vulnerability that a young scared Jean Grey will likely have. Tye Sheridan (Mud, Tree...

Simon Pegg to Co-Write Star Trek 3

It’s really sad that Roberto Orci has dropped out of writing Star Trek 3. And by really sad I mean pretty awesome. I really liked the Star Trek reboot but it had its problems. The sequel was a joke and I blame all on the weak writing. So to hear that Orci was walking away, I figure it can only get better. Then they announced who was hopping on board to co-write. Simon Pegg! ComingSoon says: Pegg has been set to co-write Star...
