Is ‘Star Wars Rebels’ Bringing Back This Expanded Universe Villain?

Ben Solo and Rey aren't the same age. They aren't twins.

Is ‘Star Wars Rebels’ Bringing Back This Expanded Universe Villain?

Not really a departure. Using Thrawn doesn't mean that Zahn's stories are now canon again. The LSG has maintained that they have the prerogative to incorporate elements from the Legends line in the new canon if they want to.

Proof That Boba Fett Is in ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’?

Proof That Boba Fett Is in ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’?

Can throw out the Boba Fett's daughter theory. Fett would be about 31 years old at the time of Rogue One. He wouldn't have a daughter who is mid-20s. Never mind the fact that she looks nothing like Jango or Boba.

Harrison Ford's Favorite ‘Star Wars 7’ Scene Is a Major Spoiler

Harrison Ford's Favorite ‘Star Wars 7’ Scene Is a Major Spoiler

Wow. Someone break out their game of Jumping to Conclusions. His answer doesn't provide for that at all. He's seen the whole movie. He could very well just be talking about the scene he liked watching the most.

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ TV Spot #5 Has Incredible New Footage

They were training Luke on how to use the Force while using a lightsaber. Anyone can use one; it's just a friggin' sword.

‘Deadpool’ Video Has Ryan Reynolds Impersonating Hugh Jackman

"...it is more likely than him showing up in any of the other spinoffs or X-Men: Apocalypse." Except, of course, he's been confirmed to be filming something for Apocalypse.

Why Did Superman Kill Zod in ‘Man of Steel’?

So, the only way this makes sense for the story is to take Superman out of it. Got it, Davey.

‘Spider-Man’ Movies Will Always Have a Straight, White Hero

‘Spider-Man’ Movies Will Always Have a Straight, White Hero

That's not the way it reads if you click through to the Gawker article. It has requirements for Spider-Man, which doesn't restrict him to only being Peter Parker and actually allows for any race, but then says he should be straight with the caveat that he could be gay but only if Marvel ever produces a comic with a gay Spider-Man. It's the requirements for Peter Parker or a Peter Parker-specific Spider-Man that state he must be straight and white. So, as long as they use Peter, he won't be gay or a race other than Caucasian American from New York. They could use a different character as Spider-Man, such as Miles Morales, and allow him to be any race they'd like.

Disney and Marvel Sued Over ‘Iron Man’ Armor

Disney and Marvel Sued Over ‘Iron Man’ Armor

Have they ever read an Iron Man comic prior to 2000? "Tony Stark only wore spandex and minimal pieces of armor" has to be the silliest explanation I've ever heard. "[...]centers on the protagonist as he creates and builds increasingly powerful and futuristic versions of this body armor that allow him to fly, shoot projectiles, and perform other superhuman feats." Umm,,, This lawsuit isn't going anywhere.

‘Bourne 5’ Won't Bring Damon and Renner Together

Aaron Cross needs another film on his own before doing a crossover with Bourne. Make these next two movies and then do a crossover after.

Edgar Wright Loses ‘Ant-Man’ Script Credit

Edgar Wright Loses ‘Ant-Man’ Script Credit

@renodc The script that Wright and Cornish wrote back in 2001 wasn't quite the same script that they were going to shoot with. They were still working on rewrites up until Wright quit the film. That's fairly common practice. As for Rudd, he signed on because he wanted to work with Wright and was as surprised as everyone that Wright left. Marvel brought in McKay to work on the script and because they'd worked together in the past McKay and Rudd rewrote it together.

‘Constantine’ in Jeopardy as NBC Stops Production

‘Constantine’ in Jeopardy as NBC Stops Production

People seem to be neglecting the other part of the story, which is the most obvious reason for Constantine to stop production. Hannibal is set to air in the timeslot in the spring. It really only makes logistical sense to cap the first season at 13 episodes. The fact that the ratings have improved each week after the initial drop in the second week, is likely more than making a case to keep the show around for a second season.

‘Arrow’ Season 3: Brandon Routh Teases the Atom Costume

‘Arrow’ Season 3: Brandon Routh Teases the Atom Costume

They didn't explicitly say he wouldn't be able to shrink. Just that they likely wouldn't feature that ability on 'Arrow.' There's the possibility, though, that Palmer could find his way over to 'The Flash,' or possibly other spinoffs, which would allow him to use such abilities.

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Title, Logo and July 2017 Release Date Announced

Technically, in Norse mythology, Ragnarok was an apocalyptic event that destroyed everything that existing for it all to start anew. There wasn't just one single Ragnarok. It was cyclical.

Edward Norton Reveals Why He Didn't Return as Hulk in ‘Avengers’

Edward Norton Reveals Why He Didn't Return as Hulk in ‘Avengers’

I still see this as a case of Norton getting his feathers ruffled over the creative control that Feige and company imposed upon the film, Norton wanting a big figure to come back after they had a pretty antagonistic time for a bit there, Feige and Marvel holding their ground, and then the studio finally saying they'd rather be involved with someone else and recasting. Sad thing is it sounds like the version of "The Incredible Hulk" that Norton and Leterrier wanted to release would've been a stronger movie than the one Marvel put out. For my money, Norton would've been a far more interesting wildcard in the ensemble in Avengers. (I love Ruffalo as an actor, and he's fine in the role, but it didn't really do much for me.) And they're still not in any rush to do more solo Hulk movies.

Edward Norton Reveals Why He Didn't Return as Hulk in ‘Avengers’

@rjh094 Well, that all depends on perspective. For some actors, being locked into one role for the better part of a decade is quite limiting and unfulfilling, no matter how much money could be gained from it.
