Even with so much fantastic content to watch over the past few months on every major streaming service, there’s still no denying that Netflix still reigns supreme when it comes to offering the largest and most diverse collection of films and shows. June has seen a huge influx of new stuff to watch, including classics like E.T. the Extraterrestrial and The Silence of the Lambs to underrated gems like Observe and Report. Now, as the month finally comes to a close, the platform has one last drop today that is bringing some new movies and series alongside a comedy special.
Ever since the first official image of the actor in character was revealed before a single frame had even been shot, the knives were already out for Jared Leto’s take on the Joker. In the years since Suicide Squad was first released to big box office but disappointing reviews, the Academy Award winner’s divisive performance as the Clown Prince of Crime has been described as many things, but scary isn’t one of them.
Reporters at Deadline have learned that Nickelodeon are developing another feature film based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. According to the outlet, the pic will be produced by Point Grey Pictures, a production company owned by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver.
Following the conclusion of Avengers: Endgame, Marvel Studios and the MCU have hit a transition period. They’ll be moving on from iconic and well-known superheroes like Iron Man and Captain America to something new and different. There’ll be some fresh faces like the Eternals and Shang-Chi as well as the continuation of such popular characters as Thor, Doctor Strange and the Guardians of the Galaxy. But the true money-maker remains Spider-Man.
Terry Crews, an African American actor best known for his roles in Deadpool 2 and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, has yet again become the subject of online criticism for posting tweets that warn about the supposed ideological dangers of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Netflix is often home to some of streaming’s absolute best content, including top-tier original films and shows that have long-since rivalled the production quality of theatrical and cable releases. It’s also one of the easiest places to find huge collections from your favorite genres, especially since it’s so well-known for procuring plenty of classics alongside more modern content. That said, if you’re a fan of horror, you’re really in luck come July, as you can expect a smorgasbord of scary and unsettling content launching for you to watch throughout the month.
Last week, we received the mind-blowing news that Michael Keaton is in talks with Warner Bros. to reprise Bruce Wayne in The Flash movie and beyond, a role he hasn’t played since 1992’s Batman Returns. If you discount Forever and Robin from continuity, as the DCEU will apparently do, there’s a lot that Tim Burton’s cult film leaves hanging that we would want addressed when Keaton comes back to the role. For one, The Flash has the opportunity to fill in a 30-year-old plot hole.
Tom Holland and Mark Ruffalo have gained a reputation for being the two biggest goofballs in the MCU cast, with both the Spider-Man and Hulk actors infamously dropping major spoilers for their Marvel movies over the years. Ruffalo, for instance, accidentally livestreamed the beginning of Thor: Ragnarok on social media. And in this latest example of their antics, which Holland has just shared on his Instagram, the British star accidentally crashes Ruffalo’s interview on the set of Avengers: Endgame.
It’s been thirty years since Gremlins 2: The New Batch hit cinemas. It’s an excellent and extremely weird movie, though only just made its budget back. Despite the franchise being on ice, the cute Mogwai and the Gremlins haven’t been forgotten, being referenced in adverts, in comedy sketches and proving extremely memeable online. Next year, the mischievous creatures are making a comeback in HBO Max animated show Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai. But could this series kick off a whole new wave of popularity for the franchise? Perhaps.
Although he hasn’t officially signed on the dotted line yet as talks between the two parties continue, Michael Keaton’s return as Batman for the first time in nearly 30 years is widely expected to be a formality at this stage. The news that the 68 year-old was in talks to join the DCEU as Bruce Wayne came out of nowhere, but fans were unanimously on board with the idea almost as soon as it became public, as Warner Bros.’ marquee franchise looks to go all-in on the multiverse.
