Michael Shannon Confirms Voice Work for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

EGP Website Article Image 63

Michael Shannon recently joked that he had to wear flipper hands on the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (as he says in the quote below he was never actually on the set even though he appeared in the Comic Con trailer). However, he did confirm that he did voice work for one of 2016’s biggest films, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Shannon is quoted as saying the following:

“I wasn’t there. It’s a really awkward situation—I’m in the trailer for a movie that I didn’t work on. I went over and did some voice-over stuff because it’s like that ghost thing. But I don’t know if I’m supposed to say that. I get very nervous.”

In Man of Steel, Jor-El (played by Russell Crowe) appeared as an A.I.-like entity. This could be similar to the “ghost thing” Mr. Shannon is alluding to.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is officially released March 25th, 2016.

The Season Finale of MTV’s Scream Series to Honour Wes Craven

EGP Website Article Image 62

The world was shocked by the news last Sunday that horror legend Wes Craven had passed away. The creator of the A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise and director of the Scream films had touched (and scared magnificently) many people with his work over the years.

Many fans of his work around the years have paid their tribute to the horror legend. But, without much time to prepare, MTV’s Scream series will pay tribute to Wes in their season finale. Executive producer Jill Blotevogel said the following:

“It feels pretty natural to honour him. The Scream finale would be nothing, it wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for Wes. I’m sure there will be a moment-of-silence element to it. I’m not sure exactly what form it will take yet.”

Thoughts on this news?

Our thoughts are with Wes’ family and friends in this difficult time.

Report: Daniel Craig Indicates Spectre May Be His Last James Bond Film

EGP Website Article Image 61

The release of the next James Bond film Spectre looms closer every day. However, ahead of the film we have some potentially bad news to report…

Daniel Craig has indicated that Spectre could end up being his last James Bond film. Mr. Craig said the following to Esquire:

“I really don’t know. Honestly. I’m not trying to be coy. At the moment I can’t even conceive it. At this moment, no. I have a life and I’ve got to get on with it a bit. But we’ll see.”

It had been rumoured before that Craig was contracted to do at least one more Bond film after Spectre, but whether or not he decides to do another will be up to him.

Daniel Craig has been playing the role of James Bond for nearly ten years, starting with Casino Royale (2006) and following that with Quantum of Solace (2008) and Skyfall (2012). Spectre will mark his fourth appearance as the character (the same number as his predecessor Pierce Brosnan did in his run).

Thoughts on what Daniel said? Would you be disappointed to see him leave the role of James Bond?

The Flash- Tony Todd Cast as the Voice of Zoom in The Flash Season 2

EGP Website Article Image 57

Actor Tony Todd has been cast as the voice of Zoom in the second season of The Flash.

Todd, best-known as the title character in the Candyman film series among many other roles, will first appear as the voice of Zoom in the second episode of the season which is titled- “The Flash of Two Worlds”.

Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg had the following to say on the casting:

“Last year, with the Reverse-Flash, we just modulated Tom Cavanagh’s voice, and this year we wanted to do something a little bit different. Part of the mystery of the season is who or what is underneath the Zoom outfit, and so we wanted to do something like James Earl Jones as Darth Vader — this iconic voice coming out of this mask. Last year, we thought of the Reverse-Flash as a speed warrior; this year, Zoom is like a speed demon, and no one does demon-voice better than Tony Todd.”

The comparison to Darth Vader is very interesting as this confirms that Tony is definitely only the voice of the character. Another actor will be playing the character in the suit (much like Dave Prowse was in the Darth Vader suit).

For anyone unfamiliar with the character of Zoom, Kreisberg said the following to describe the character:

“For us, the best villains are the ones who don’t have megalomaniacal ‘I want to rule the world’ motivations. Last year, the Reverse-Flash had a very simple goal which was, ‘I just want to go home, and if people need to die or cities need to get wasted for me to get that, so be it.’ And Zoom has a very similar, personal goal this season- simple and easy to understand, and very primal. And just as with Wells last year, Zoom doesn’t care who gets hurt or what gets destroyed in the service of him getting his goal.”

“We have to service the entire audience, both the fans and the non-fans, and I think we’ve shown up until this point a great deal of respect and reverence for the source material, so that we always feel like we’re fulfilling the comic book fans’ expectations while also not spoon-feeding them stuff directly from the comics. So the story of Zoom and who and what he is- hopefully comic book fans will be happy because we’ve come up with a clever way to spin the tale, but that also makes it exciting for the people who aren’t as familiar with the comics and are just enjoying the show on its own terms.”

The Flash Season 2 premiers on October 6th.

Rumour- Details on How Iron Man Helps Spider-Man in Captain America Civil War

EGP Website Article Image 55

Readers of the Civil War comic series know how significant Tony Stark and Peter Parker’s relationship was, with Spider-Man starting off on Iron Man’s side in the conflict. As a result of joining The Avengers, there were numerous perks for Peter (including an apartment in Avengers Tower and learning under Tony Stark). However, the most notable contribution Stark did for Peter was to give him a new armoured suit.

While we may (or may not) see the suit adapted into the Captain America: Civil War movie, a new rumour has been released on what we could see Tony Stark give to Peter Parker instead.

Potential spoilers for Captain America: Civil War follow so this is your SPOILER alert warning.


The rumour suggests that instead of building an armoured suit, Tony Stark will design the web shooters that Spider-Man uses.

“When we first meet young Spider-Man, Peter Parker will be a hero using only things a teenager has access to while Stark has the capability of making more “hero ready” suits (he has a line about making the Avengers “look cool” in Age of Ultron).”

Captain America: Civil War is released May 6th, 2016.

Ghostbusters- Bill Murray Reveals Why he Did a Cameo in the Ghostbusters Reboot

EGP Website Article Image 54

Bill Murray may have played Dr. Peter Venkman in the original Ghostbusters films, but he has passed on doing a Ghostbusters 3 for a long time. Therefore, it should come as a surprise to a lot of people that Bill opened up about appearing as a cameo in the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot and why he agreed to make a cameo.

“You know, they were incredibly nice to ask me, and I really enjoyed being there.  They have such a jolly group, and they are going to have great success with this project. I didn’t want to overshadow [them] or anything, and I feel really good about it. “I like those girls a lot. I mean, I really do. They are tough to say no to. And Paul is a real nice fellow.”

As well as feeling that the cast and crew were very nice to ask him to appear in the reboot, Bill had another reason for wanting to appear in the reboot. The reason was because he didn’t want reviewers or audiences to act negatively towards the film if the older cast didn’t appear to approve of the film:

“I thought about it for a very long time. Like, many, many months. No, that’s not right. I was seriously thinking about this for years, really. It kept eating at me, and I really respect those girls. And then I started to feel like if I didn’t do this movie, maybe somebody would write a bad review or something, thinking there was some sort of disapproval [on my part].”

The Ghostbusters reboot is released on July 15th, 2016.

Thoughts on Bill’s reason? Are you looking forward to seeing his cameo in the Ghostbusters reboot?

Supergirl- First Look at Jenna Dewan-Tatum as Lucy Lane

EGP Website Article Image 53

Much like Jenna Dewan-Tatum isn’t as well-known as her spouse Channing Tatum, Lucy Lane isn’t as well-known as her older sister Lois Lane. However, you can expect both to become a lot more well-known because of the Supergirl series and the first look at Jenna as Lucy Lane has been released.

Lucy will be a regular recurring character in Supergirl, with her first appearance coming several episodes into the first season of the show.

Lucy will reportedly befuddle the romance that is stirring between Supergirl and Jimmy Olson.

Executive producer Ali Adler had the following to say on the character:

“We hope to explore the history that Lucy has with James Olsen—or, as Lucy knows him, Jimmy Olsen. I think we’re going to bring in her father. She not only plays a romantic foil with whatever Kara and James are brewing, but people will also be surprised that she’s really a woman’s woman. She and Kara develop their own friendship, too. We’re not just bringing her in to purposefully create tension. She serves a larger story drive.”

The Supergirl series premiers October 26th on CBS.

Thoughts on the first look at Jenna as Lucy Lane? Are you excited to see her as a regular recurring character in Supergirl?
