Zack Snyder recently made the difficult decision to step away from directing Justice League, to focus on his family after a terrible personal tragedy. And it is none other than Joss Whedon who has come in to help finish the film in time for its November 17 release date.

Snyder’s daughter Autumn died of suicide in March, an event that was initially kept private as Snyder tried to gather his strength to go back to Justice League. But in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, the director said his family just needed him more right now:

Why Resident Evil Is Set For A Reboot And 6 More Films

resident-evil-final-chapter.jpg

Let me start this post by saying that I’ve always loved the first Resident Evil movie. I thought it was, and is, seriously underrated; probably “tainted” for critics by its status as a video game adaptation. (The second one was horrendous)

But as I watched the trailer for the sixth movie in the franchise, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, I could not help but think: “do we really need any more of these?” Was yet another Resident Evil really necessary?

Whatever era Zac Efron was supposed to represent, can we safely say it’s over now? Between this and Robert Pattinson playing a disheveled bank robber?

Efron is set to play notorious serial killer Ted Bundy in the upcoming film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile. The movie’s story will be told from the perspective of Bundy’s girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer, who initially refused to believe her man was responsible for the murder of over 30 women.

“Kylo Ren” Now Fastest-Growing Baby Name Because, Well, I Don’t Know

kylo-ren.jpg

the first thing I think of when I think “baby”

It’s a tough world out there, and so you need to make sure your baby has a name powerful enough to allow your child to do battle with the wretched weakling Jedi scum. Hence, “Kylo Ren” is actually one of the fastest-growing baby names in the United States.

According to the Social Security Administration, the popularity of the “Kylo Ren” baby name has jumped from 3,269 in 2015 to 901 in 2016.

The character, played by Adam Driver, made a big splash in the long-awaited Star Wars sequel The Force Awakens in 2015, and is set to cause more mayhem in The Last Jedi at the end of this year. He also has a way cooler name than “Anakin,” which kind of sounds like a cross between “Annie” and “Napkin.”

Review: Red Hood And The Outlaws #10

red-hood-10-banner.jpg

There is nothing particularly “special” about this specific issue of Red Hood And The Outlaws…it’s issue #10, it’s in the middle of this Wonder Woman crossover thing…I frankly bought it because it had Red Hood holding a dead Jason Todd on the cover.

But that’s how they “getcha,” right? The cover with the WTF imagery that will probably not be replicated in the comic itself—that’s a move many many decades old. And I’ll be damned if it don’t work every single goddamn time. But I thought it would still be interesting to take a look at this comic, see where the title is at, and all that jazz. (“Spoilers”)
