First Look At Jason Momoa In Aquaman

Published

on

Jason Momoa’s Aquaman was just along for the ride in Justice League. In the characters first stand-alone movie, fans will get more of the new badass version of Aquaman. So forget the memes and the jokes from the 60’s super friends cartoons. E

Entertainment Weekly released the first of image of Momoa in James Wan’s (Furious 7Aquaman. Wan broke down his vision for the King of Atlantis.

“It’s going to look very different, it will feel very different, aesthetically, tonally, story-wise, it’s my own take. It’s a much more a traditional action-adventure quest movie…Aquaman has been the joke of the comic book world, but the more I thought about it, the more I thought how cool that would be. Let’s take the character everybody makes fun of and do something really interesting with him.”

Momoa also revealed the film will give fans a glimpse into Arthur’s difficult childhood as a half-human, half-Atlantean to eventually becoming king.

Justice League was only a weekend in Arthur Curry’s life,” Momoa says. “This is a totally different beast. In Aquaman, you see when his parents met and what happened to hem. Then the little boy being raised and finding his powers and going through that and never being accepted on either side. And then becoming this man who puts up all these walls. You just slowly see this man harden up and be completely reluctant wanting to be king and not knowing what to do with these powers he has. I think James Wan just killed it.”

Aquaman also stars Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman, Willem Dafoe, Dolph Lundgren, Patrick Wilson, Temuera Morrison and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as the villainous Black Manta.

Aquaman will arrive in theaters on December 21, 2018

Published

on

Sony has released the official Venom trailer and this one actually has Venom. The first teaser trailer was Tom Hardy the movie, which had some fans upset the studio would even release a trailer without Venom.

Most people still have a sour taste in their mouth from the Sam Rami version of one of Marvel’s best anti-heroes. The trailer shows gives fans an updated origin for the character.  But more so promises to deliver a Venom worth watching.

 

Ruben Fleischer’s film will pull from one of the 90’s story arcs that featured Venom facing off against mercenaries. The Lethal Protector story had Eddie Brock leaving New York for San Francisco. Fans of the 90’s might have fond memories of the 1993 mini-series Venom: Lethal Protector. It was set sometime after Carnage debuted in Amazing Spider-Man, where the villain was turned into an anti-hero. Venom soon made peace with the wallcrawler and moved to San Francisco, where he became the “lethal protector” of the city.

Venom producer Matthew Tolmach spoke about his excitement of having Tom Hardy play the role of Eddie Brook.

“You know, Tom… it’s like a masterclass watching him act every day and he’s such a risk taker and he loved this character. From the day that we first met with him, my partner Avi Arad and I… we found someone who just believed in this character entirely and yet every day pushes it to a place that us mere mortals would never expect it to go.”

Venom starring Tom Hardy comes to theaters October 5th, 2018.

The Houston Rockets took a game 4 win against the Timberwolves after the team exploded for 50 points in the third quarter.

Houston stars James Harden and Chris Paul combined for 37 points in the quarter.

Harden had 22 points on 7-of-10 shooting in the quarter. That set a franchise record for points in a quarter, breaking Hakeem Olajuwon’s mark of 18 set against the Utah Jazz on May 5, 1995.

“We just got hot,” said Paul, who had 15 points on 4-of-6 shooting in the third quarter and 25 points on 9-of-17 shooting in the game. “Guys started making shots. We talked going into the game about being aggressive, and I think we all just tried to do that.”

For Chris Paul, it was more about the Rockets defense not their offense.

“Obviously everybody will look at the 50 points that we scored in the quarter, but it was our defense,” Paul said. “We finally started getting them to take tough shots, we were getting rebounds and we’re tough in transition. You’ve got James coming downhill, myself and the way we’ve got the court spaced with shooters is big. That really turned it up for us.”

Marvel’s Phase 4 is on a lot of fans minds. The MCU is expanding but Marvel is keeping their plans locked up.  Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige sat down with ComicBook.com this weekend and revealed that Nova maybe one of new heroes fans will get to see on the big screen.

“Nova is—if we have a big board with a bunch of characters that have more immediate potential, Nova is on that board,” he said. “Because of the connection to the Guardians universe, because there are more than one examples to pull from in the comics that are interesting. And you’re absolutely right, he was in the earliest drafts of the [Guardians of the Galaxy].”

Feige didn’t get specific about the timetable of a Nova appearance and admitted that they’re having difficulty choosing which of the many characters to highlight next. “We’re figuring those things out,” he explained. “It is a very unique embarrassment of riches right now because there are so many of the characters that audiences are clamoring to see more. The question is how do we show them all?”
