But, what do you guys think about Purser as a potential alternative? Since Purser's post went live she's been contacted by a few Marvel executives to see if she wants to come by their headquarters. She's definitely shown herself to be talented in the hit Netflix Original Series 'Stranger Things', so I don't know. Thoughts?
It's been eight years since Heath Ledger died from a lethal drug overdose. Heath Ledger's father recently sat down for an interview to discuss his son's truly tragic death.
“The last conversation Kate had with him was this discussion about his medications and she warned him, ‘‘You can’t mix drugs that you don’t know anything about’,” Ledger’s father Kim told news.com.au.
“He said ‘Katie, Katie, I’ll be fine’. Well, that’s a cavalier boy’s answer. It just put his whole system to sleep I guess,” Mr. Ledger said.
Heath's father went on to say that his son wasn't addicted to opioids--he just made the mistake of mixing the wrong drugs. And that Heath's chaotic work schedule had begun to take its toll on the actor.
“There is pressure on everybody, especially young people, to perform and to keep going. He was a young guy that travelled all the time for work. Even as a two-year-old, he hardly ever slept. He was trying to work and travel and do everything in a short space of time.”
RIP Heath Ledger you were a fiercely talented young man, taken from us all too soon.
And here I thought Jared Leto trying to go 'method' for Joker by sending in used and abused condoms and anal beads, was as bad 'n sick 'n twisted as it'd ever get; but nah, turns out actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje had something up his sleeve. Akinnuoye-Agbaje says, “I did a lot of research on cannibalistic habits from back to the Mayans and the Aztecs, right up to modern-day cannibals.”
He says he'd also watch a video of a Japanese cannibal, Issei Sagawa, who killed and ate a Dutch woman. He kept it on his phone so he could play it every day...uh. Can't even, right now. Can't even.
“As sick as it sounds, the moment I start to play that video, I’m in the form of Croc, because it’s really important for this creature to be thirsty for flesh, even when he’s around The Squad.”
Suicide Squad hits theaters August 5th. Check out the trailer below:
The loathing runs very deep here, guys. Just last week, Marvel released this year’s Spider-Gwen Annual, an 'alternate-reality series' that portrays a black female Captain America as a hero. The villain's known by everyone as the Mental Organism Designed as America’s King, or more crisply, “M.O.D.A.A.K.”
M.O.D.A.A.K. wails incessantly about 'foreign filth' and how he wants to squeeze 'n crush America in his allmighty powerful hands...
Readers have already been quick to note the glaring similarities between the comic's villain and Donald Trump himself:
Judging by Latour's Twitter feed, which touts a marked dedication to a hatred targeted at Trump, you've gotta think the talented Marvel artist really was inspired enough out of a passionate hatred to create a villain that exists solely to make fun of Trump.
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.
Emmerich claims himself a visionary, and one who has no time for 'superhero fare' inspired by his films. Fair to say, Emmerich's about to be dealt a nice serving of blowback based off the following incendiary remark he made about Marvel superhero movies...
“I’m a big believer in original ideas. I tell this to every kid who comes to me and says they want to be a filmmaker. I say, ‘Do what you want to do and don’t let yourself be talked into anything.’ When you look at my movies it’s always the regular Joe Schmo that’s the unlikely hero. A lot of Marvel movies, they show people in funny suits running around. I don’t like people in capes. I find it silly when someone dons a superhero suit and flies. I don’t understand it. I grew up in Germany, that’s probably why.”
Will this love story happen in the next films, maybe not. As to why this is trending, it seems like it has a lot to do with a lackluster love story in the most recent Captain America:Civil War. (WARNING: Mild spolier ahead?)
This image shows the immortal women who trained Wonder Woman looking badass, even while wearing high heels. Director Patty Jenkins explains why she chose these outfits (that look cool but probably aren't that practical) in an interview with Entertainment Weekly:
To me, they shouldn’t be dressed in armor like men. It should be different. It should be authentic and real – and appealing to women. It’s total wish-fulfillment. I, as a woman, want Wonder Woman to be hot as hell, fight badass, and look great at the same time – the same way men want Superman to have huge pecs and an impractically big body. That makes them feel like the hero they want to be. And my hero, in my head, has really long legs.
At least she also mentioned that they do have flats to wear in times of "heavy fighting".
