BossLogic Shows Us What Blake Lively Could Look Like as Black Canary

The last time we saw Blake Lively in a superhero movie was when she was in Green Lantern. For better or for worse, Lively has not been in a superhero movie since 2011, but what if she joined the DCEU? Black Canary is reported as being part of Birds of Prey, but no actress has been put in the part. Why not cast Lively? Everyone’s favorite fan-casting artist, BossLogic, has stepped up and given the world his take on what Lively as Black Canary would be. Do you think Lively is the one to go with? Who do you think should be Black Canary?

DORA THE EXPLORER Casts Madeleine Madden

dora-the-explorer-casts-madeleine-madden-social.jpg

Another cast member has been announced for the live-action Dora the Explorer movie with Madeleine Madden (Picnic and Hanging Rock). Madden’s role has not been revealed, and I honestly have no idea who she could be. Maybe Backpack? I’ll be honest, I’m still surprised that this movie is being made.

Madden is joining Isabela Moner, Eugenio Derbesz, Micke Moreno, and Adriana Barraza. Danielle Sanchez-Witzel and Nicholas Stoller are writing the script that James Bobin will use to direct the film. Michael Bay is also producing.

Dora the Explorer currently has a release date of August 2, 2019.

Stephen McFeely Addresses What Took Thanos So Long to Take Action

Raise your hand if you’re wondering what took Thanos so long to actually do anything after announcing at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, “Fine, I’ll do it myself.” Now that everyone is raising their hand, Stephen McFeely, one of the screenwriters for Avengers: Infinity War tries to explain this in the commentary of the film.

The catalyst for the whole movie was when Thanos figured out where the Soul Stone was because he captured Nebula on his ship [after she went after him at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2] and rooted around in her brain and found out that Gamora knew where the Soul Stone was.

Normally you want, you know, your inciting incident, the catalyst for this to maybe be on screen and maybe be first. But given how we wanted to approach the story we buried it to basically the midpoint. And, you know, again, it keeps you off balance, but it’s definitely there.

It makes some sense when you think about it. Thanos is a man with a purpose. He doesn’t care about having power to have power. He sees the Infinity Stones as a means to an end and not just some power boost. That being said, do you think the catalyst for everything was buried too deep or were you fine with it?

Jordan Vogt-Roberts Looks to Break Video Game Movie Curse with METAL GEAR SOLID By Leaning Into its Weirdness

Video game movie adaptations are typically not well received by audiences. Prince of Persia wasn’t awful, but it wasn’t great. Super Mario Bros was utter garbage. Then you’ve got Resident Evil, Tomb Raider, Mortal Kombat, Warcraft, etc. It’s like how anime movie adaptations struggle. However, Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts is hoping to make a good video game movie with Metal Gear Solid. His idea is to lean into what makes the game so weird. At San Diego Comic-Con, Vogt-Roberts told ScreenRant his plan:

You know the beauty of Metal Gear and the reason I give our producers and the studio a ton of credit is because I went in and said, ‘Let’s embrace the fact that this is weird.’ Let’s embrace the fact that there are supernatural elements to this game that are horror elements to this game. Let’s embrace the fact that there are weird Japanese quirkiness and idiosyncrasies and oddities that are all framed around this very self-serious world and let’s lean into those things and let’s have it be unique and unlike anything else because it represents those things and let’s have the rest of the world fall in love with it because of that as opposed to trying to make it something else.

There’s certainly plenty of weirdness in those games. I’ve heard stories of some people needing to change the controller port mid-game. Do you think embracing the weirdness of Metal Gear Solid is the key to making it a good video game movie? Do you think this is a lost cause?

Jaime King Cast in Netflix’s New Zombie Series BLACK SUMMER

If you’re wanting a new zombie apocalypse show, you may want to consider Black Summer. Black Summer was recently ordered by Netflix and it will star Jaime King from Hart of Dixie. The series will start with 8 episodes and I imagine it will get more if it does well. Karl Schaefer and John Hyams created the series, and both will serve as executive producers. Here’s a brief synopsis:

Black Summer stars King as a mother, torn from her daughter, who embarks upon a harrowing journey, stopping at nothing to find her. Thrust alongside a small group of American refugees, she must brave a hostile new world and make brutal decisions during the most deadly summer of a zombie apocalypse.

Does this sound like a new series that you might enjoy?

Let’s Talk About GO GO POWER RANGERS #12

We are coming to the end of Shattered Grid, but that doesn’t mean things are slowing down. If you haven’t read Go Go Power Rangers #12 yet, be warned that spoilers are ahead.

spoiler_alert.png ggpr_12_1.jpg

My favorite part is that we finally learn the story of the Ranger Slayer! We get to see her become brainwashed and under Drakkon’s spell. That’s awesome. This then leads into where we left off in #11 where Ranger Slayer had just knocked out Billy, but it’s for a good reason which she explains to Kimberly. However, there’s an awkward glimpse at Jason’s life. He’s dealing with his dad being sick and trying to get his dad to tell Jason’s mom. Normally, I’d love this. Unfortunately, I think it’s placed in a weird spot and we don’t get any resolution about the scene. It’s literally just one page that felt to me like there was going to be more, but the rest got lost.

The next momentous occasion is when Matt runs into Ranger Slayer and is furiously texting the Rangers trying to get help. Ranger Slayer then tells Matt everything after reviving the Gravezord. After the Gravezord is revived, Ranger Slayer sends it remotely to help the Rangers who are struggling against Hammerdillo and Crush-Tacean. It then combines with the Megazord for the super awesome (my second favorite part of the comic) Mega-Gravezord!

We finally get to the most confusing part of the issue. Ranger Slayer finds Tommy Oliver. We have no indication as to when or what dimension this Tommy is in which is what makes this really confusing to me. Ranger Slayer then does some cool acrobatics before shooting what appears to be a magic arrow. Tommy is then shown images of what I believe are the memories of the dead Tommy. Ranger Slayer is next seen losing her powers. At least, that’s what I think is happening.

Of course, the very end of the issue is Matt confronting the Rangers in an attempt to get them to tell him the truth about them being Rangers. The Rangers refuse, and Matt decides he never wants to talk to them again.

I thought this issue was awesome, and I hope and expect things to be explained in #13. What did you think of the issue.

Wakandan War Chants Were Improvised in INFINITY WAR

I loved Avengers: Infinity War. I thought it was a spectacular movie. One of the many parts I loved, was when the Wakanda warriors do their awesome war chants before engaging Thanos’ forces. It turns out, that was not planned by the Russo brothers. Infinity War and Black Panther were being filmed at the same time so there was no way for the Russos to know how successful the movie would be or how much people would love the war chants and the phrase “Wakanda forever!” The brothers did not plan on including any of that into Infinity War. However, in the commentary for Infinity War, they explain how Winston Duke and Chadwick Boseman incorporated them into the film.

We did not know — because we had not seen Black Panther because they were still making Black Panther — about their war chants,” Joe Russo notes on the commentary. “And they just started doing it.”

”Oh my God, yeah,” Anthony Russo interjects.

”And after watching Winston doing it in the opening of the sequence, it led to the responding war cry that T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) leads,” Joe Russo says. “A year ahead of time, we had no idea ‘Wakanda forever!’ was going to be amazing.”

Infinity War is available on Digital now and on Blu-ray August 14, 2018.

Henry Cavill and Zachary Levi Share Their Thoughts on Shazam vs Superman

Many DC fans debate who would win in a fight: Superman or Shazam. There are plenty of valid arguments for both sides. What do Superman and Shazam have to say about it though? When asked who would win in a fight including Superman, Shazam, and Batman, Henry Cavill responded with:

Well, if it’s three guys fighting, Batman has a chance. Because Shazam and Superman are going to focus on each other. And that’s when Batman gets all his sneaky stuff in. Superman isn’t going to just be beating up Shazam. He’s not. And Shazam is basically just a big kid. So he’s not going to be beating up Superman. He’s a huge fan of Superman, for one. But Supes is seriously quick. I think it’s whoever gets the jump on the other. It’s situational.

Zachary Levi gave a much simpler response about Shazam vs Superman.

Shazam is magic. So I think we’re team Shazam.

Since Superman is vulnerable to magic, that does lend some credence to that side. What do you think though? Superman or Shazam?

The Series Adaptation of Y: THE LAST MAN Adds Timothy Hutton to the Cast

timothy_hutton.jpg

If you’re excited for the adaptation of Y: The Last Man, Y, you’ll be interested in knowing that Timothy Hutton has been cast. Hutton is currently said to only appear in the pilot as the U.S. President. This makes sense considering the premise revolves around there only being one male.

The DC Comics/Vertigo title was first launched in 2002 and revolves around Yorick Brown — the last surviving human with a Y chromosome — and his Capuchin monkey, Ampersand. The series follows escape artist Yorick after a mysterious plague as he sets out to find what might have wiped out the male chromosome.

Hutton joins the previously cast Diane LaneBarry Keoghan, Imogen Poots, Lashana Lynch, Juliana Canfield, Amber Tamblyn and Marin Ireland.

The series is being developed by showrunners Michael Green (American Gods, Blade Runner 2049, Logan) and Aida Mashaka Croal (Luke Cage, Turn). The creator of the comic is also a producer on the series. Melina Matsoukas (Insecure, Master of None, Beyonce: Formation) is set to direct the pilot.
