Big news Halo heads. It looks like Halo and Master Chief is about to hit the next level. During Microsoft’s XBox One reveal press conference, it has been announced the Microsoft, 343 Industries, and Steven Spielberg will be producing a Halo live-action series to XBox Live. Spielberg is set for the role of executive producer and little has been revealed about the series. There is no launch date, but I imagine this is most likely going to happen after the release of XBox One.
Ah shit. Here we go again. Latino Review is reporting that Disney and Lucasfilm is in talks with The Tudors and Dracula (2013 mini-series) star, Jonathan Rhys Meyers to be cast in Star Wars: Episode VII. Jonathan Rhys Meyers already has experience with director J.J. Abrams on Mission Impossible 3 back in 2006. Meyers hasn’t really broken through to be an A-list actor in Hollywood, but he has been producing quality work for a very long time in television and movies. If there is any truth to this rumor, Jonathan Rhys Meyers will join veteran Star Wars actors, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill.
IF Jonathan Rhys Meyers is cast in Episode VII, which character do you think he would (or should) play? My guess is Jacen Solo. He looks like a Sith Lord.
Star Wars: Episode VII is set to drop in 2015.
Hanksy will make his West Coast debut at Gallery 1988 West in Los Angeles starting from May 28 to June 15.
As a “child of the 80’s”, artist Billy Butcher took inspiration from the new wave era he grew up with and merged them the iconic heroes of DC Comics.
As a child of the 80’s I was heavily influenced by everything from saturday morning cartoons on TV to the music coming from the radio. Ian Curtis or Johnny Rotten are as iconic to me as Superman or Batman. Real people or imaginary characters, the incorruptible ideals of perfect superheroes or the human flaws and desires sometimes so desperately depicted in song lyrics – all of those influences affect us to the point of defining our character and personality, career paths and life choices.
The references we are exposed and specifically the ones we choose to absorb make us who we are. Who are your heroes?
It’s kind of weird, but Billy Idol makes one helluva Aquaman.
Remember that crazy “Star Wars Filibuster” by Patton Oswald on Parks and Recreation? Well, as incredibly epic as that was, it’s even BETTER animated thanks to Issac Moore! I said this before and I’ll say it again. I would still pay to watch Oswald’s vision for Star Wars: Episode VII.
X-Men: Days of the Future Past director, Bryan Singer tweeted our first look at the lovely, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique. I have to admit that while I wasn’t on board with the original look in X-Men: First Class, I am in awe of how beautiful Mystique looks in DOTFP. This look is much more refined than in First Class and is better at bridging the gap from First Class to Rebecca Romjin’s Mystique. Also, it didn’t hurt that Jennifer Lawrence is drop-dead gorgeous like Rebecca Romjin.
X-Men: Days of the Future Past drops on July 18, 2014
HUZZZZAAAAAHHHHHH!!! The world was shocked when it was announced that Star Wars: The Clone Wars will be canceled after next season. Well, now there is something to rejoice as Dave Filoni has announced that a new series is currently in development called, Star Wars Rebels! Star Wars Rebel will premiere in 2014 as an one hour special on Disney Channel and then move into DisneyXD as a regular series.
The series is described as set in the time between Episode III and Episode IV. The “Rebels” are in uprising as they take on the newly founded, Galactic Empire. The thing that really got me excited has to be the description of the new animated style of the series. They will go away from the unique look of the Clone Wars and move to a style that is a nod to the original Star Wars concept art done by Ralph McQuarrie. That is very exciting. There is always word that some characters that were loved in The Clone Wars may make their way to Rebels like Ashoka Tano. Hopefully, Rebels will reveal the faith of some of our favorite characters post-Order 66.
Simon Kinberg and Greg Weisman joins Dave Filoni as executive producers. Star Wars Rebels drops in 2014.
