Aquaman, Cyborg, and Wonder Woman Appear in New Justice League Photo
A new photo has been released from Zack Snyder’s upcoming superhero team-up movie Justice League. The new image features Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) as they fight a mysterious enemy. Unveiled by Games Radar, the site debuted the new image of the three members fighting off some powerful foes. The location of where they are battling seems similar to the Kryptonian ships from Man of Steel, but there could be some other explanations for where our heroes could be. Could we expect a new trailer to come out soon after? That’s what we are pretty much hoping as we get more details on what we can expect when the film comes out towards the end of the year. Until then, we at least know that our heroes will be coming together once the film opens to fight a common enemy. Check out the image below and let us know what you think. Don’t forget to see the film when it comes out on November 17, 2017.
New Power Rangers Poster Pays Homage to the Original
After the unveiling of the final poster for Power Rangers, we got an international poster that features our five heroes at the command center ready for action. The final poster made its way online thanks to fansite Power Rangers NOW! The poster was unveiled through a Kellogg’s movie tie-in promotional in Belgium. It may just be a one-sheet that’s yet to be official, but it still looks pretty cool. We see the Rangers standing tall at the command center with the tagline saying, ‘Together we are more.’ The poster shows our five heroes, including Jason (Dacre Montgomery), Trini (Becky Gomez), Billy (RJ Cyler), Kimberly (Naomi Scott), and Zack (Ludi Lin). The only ones we don’t see are Alpha-5 and Zordon. We may even get more international posters from the rest of the world as we inch closer to the film’s release date. The poster does remind you of the first Power Rangers movie poster back in 1995. It seems like the reboot is paying their respects to the first ever Power Rangers film. What do you guys think of the new poster? Does it remind you of the poster from the 1995 film? Power Rangers is scheduled to release on March 24, 2017.
Yahya Abdul-Mateen II To Play Black Manta in Aquaman
Yahya Abdul-Mateen II is about to head into uncharted waters as he has been recently cast to play arch villain Black Manta in James Wan’s Aquaman. According to The Hollywood Reporter, talks are being made for the actor to put on the suit to play the antagonist. Black Manta made his first appearance in DC comics in 1967 and made a huge impression with fans due to his battle-costume, trident and lethal methods. Aquaman is already shaping up to be one of DC’s most anticipated films. Adbul-Mateen can be seen in the Netflix original series The Get Down as well as the upcoming films Baywatch and The Greatest Showman. Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as the half-human, half-Atlantean superhero who is the king of Atlantis. Other cast members include Amber Heard as his love interest Mera, Willem Dafoe as his advisor and scientist Dr. Vulko, and Patrick Wilson as his half-brother and villain Orm. What do you guys think of Yahya Abdul-Mateen II playing Black Manta? Aquaman is scheduled to release sometime in 2018.
