The New ‘Power Rangers’ Boasts Cinema’s First Queer Superhero

Power Rangers cast photo preview
Lionsgate / Entertainment Weekly

This past week, Beauty and the Beast raised quite a few public eyebrows (mostly in Malaysia) with its so-called ‘exclusively gay moment,’ in which Josh Gad’s LeFou fleetingly reveals that he like-likes Gaston. While this was not breaking news to any gaydar-equipped viewers of the 1991 original, it still made quite a splash online, with conservative voices objecting to the homosexual agenda imposing on innocent kids' entertainment and progressives leaning the other way, calling for a more meaningful expression of queer identity than a three-second glimpse of two men waltzing.

Star Daniel Kaluuya Likens ‘Black Panther’ to Fantasy Epic ‘Game of Thrones’


Black Panther is one of Marvel’s most exciting upcoming projects — the first film in the MCU to have a majority Black cast, a Black protagonist, and a Black director at the helm, and set in an entirely new, mysterious location we’ve only gotten a 30-second look at in a post-credits stinger. And as if we didn’t have enough of a reason to be excited about Black Panther, here’s a little reminder that Get Out star Daniel Kaluuya is in it! He recently spoke about how excited he was for the movie, and compared its epic scope to that HBO show you might’ve heard of, Game of Thrones.

Brace Yourselves, ‘Deadpool 2’ Writers Tease Imminent Cable Casting

Deadpool 2 Villain Cable

Casting for Deadpool 2 is well underway, and with Atlanta star Zazie Beetz recently signing on to play Domino, one of two major roles has now been filled. And while Cable isn’t the only other new character joining the Merc With the Mouth for his upcoming sequel, he is arguably the most important piece of the casting puzzle given the larger role he’ll be playing in this corner of the mutant universe. According to the film’s writers, we’ll learn who’s playing Cable (as well as a few other “obscure” mutant characters) in Deadpool 2 “very soon.”

Cast Party: Who Should Have Starred In A Bronze Age ‘Diana Prince: Wonder Woman’ Movie?


March is Women’s History Month, and we’re looking at the history of Wonder Woman. As we all know, her first theatrical film is due out later this year. But what if it wasn’t her first? What if there had been as many onscreen Wonder Women as Batmen?

So far we've done a Golden Age Wonder Woman movie and a Silver Age Wonder Girl movie; this week we march on into the early 1970s, for another movie featuring stars of the era.

Even as Marvel’s Iron Fist finally completed the sequence of Netflix heroes that will bring us The Defenders team-up, certain fans will never give up hope that the four could join the larger collective of cinematic Avengers. Sadly, The Falcon is none-too-keen on such a crossover, as Anthony Mackie dismisses Marvel’s TV heroes as “different universes, different worlds.”

Go Go Read Some Early ‘Power Rangers’ Reviews

Power Rangers reboot costumes

This week’s most high-profile release is the big Power Rangers reboot (I’m sorry, that’s Haim Saban‘s Power Rangers, please nobody sue me) and the earliest round of reviews has begun to surface over the past few day or so. They are, to put it somewhat charitably, mixed. The early consensus is that the film squanders what could have been remake-ready material — a multiethnic group of telegenic teens working together to form a gigantic robot that battles evil aliens sounds like a pretty hard concept to foul up — with a generic and often painfully unfunny take.

Joe Manganiello Isn’t Sure About Deathstroke Appearing in ‘The Batman’ Anymore

Deathstroke The Batman
DC Comics, 'Deathstroke' #15

Earlier this week, a few little birdies spoke with /Film about Warner Bros. standalone superhero film The Batman being rewritten completely from scratch. According to the site’s sources, the studio has chosen to start all over again with input from director Matt Reeves; additional sources also noted that Reeves wouldn’t even meet with prospective cast members until sometime this summer. This came on the heels of comments from a Variety reporter that Reeves is still under contract for War for the Planet of the Apes through the end of June, meaning The Batman was unlikely to even enter production until 2018.

Here’s the ‘Deadpool’ Writers on Why the Film Would’ve Still Succeeded at PG-13

Deadpool biggest R-rated movei
20th Century Fox

With the success of both Deadpool and Logan, 20th Century Fox has found a way to effectively differentiate itself from the other members of the superhero studio trifecta. Disney releases superhero films with broad appeal and a bright aesthetic; 20th Century Fox aims for more mature themes and isn’t afraid to incorporate both violence and profanity into its projects; Warner Bros…. well, they’re working on this, and when they figure out, it’s gonna be yuuuge. You’ll see.

It’s Rough Nights All Around in the Latest Batch of ‘Ghost in the Shell’ TV Spots

Ghost in the Shell
Paramount Pictures

After nearly six months of writing about teasers, trailers, and rumors for Paramount Pictures’ live-action Ghost in the Shell film, I figured it was time to sit down and actually watch the original 1995 animated movie. And I am here to tell you that it cleared up nothing for me. I’ll admit, the animation, production design, and soundtrack are all as impressive as rumored  —  the manga’s influence on the Wachowski Sisters is pretty hard to ignore in hindsight  —  but one movie was not enough to clear up my confusion regarding the Ghost in the Shell characters and universe as a whole.
