Official: Benedict Cumberbatch = Doctor Strange & Ryan Reynolds = Deadpool

Benedict Cumberbatch = Doctor Strange & Ryan Reynolds = Deadpool

In casting news that isn't really news because this has been plastered all over the web for a while now, two Marvel characters have officially been cast. The first being Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, who despite being the most obvious choice hasn't been confirmed until now. Via A/V Club: Marvel has officially confirmed that famous British guy Benedict Cumberbatch—best known for appearing in every casting rumor ever—will be MORE

007: Daniel Craig returns as James Bond for ‘Spectre’

jb

So apparently, this morning there was a massive live-stream where the details of the next James Bond film were revealed. Not too surprisingly, Daniel Craig is returning for next movie, called Spectre. They also took the time to reveal the new Bond car, as well as the new M, the new Q, and various other letters of the alphabet. Deadline reports ... Director Sam Mendes along with superspy Daniel Craig and producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G MORE

Revealed: ‘Suicide Squad’ cast!

Suicide Squad

A few weeks back, it was rumored that Jared Leto and Margot Robbie would be starring in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie, as the Joker and Harley Quinn respectively. Well, Variety reports that the full line-up has been announced–not only are Leto and Robbie in–you can also expect Tom Hardy and Will Smith, because DC really wants to make obscene amounts of money on this baby. I should know, I just sent them a post-dated check for a MORE

Jared Leto–The Joker? Margot Robbie–Harley Quinn?

Jared Leto and Margot Robbie

One of the benefits of dating a massive comic book geek (and also a Star Wars geek, a Star Trek geek, and a Disney geek. The list goes on, but you know, rule of threes.) is that the two of you get to enable each others' nerdiness. Case in point: We've both agreed that Harley Quinn is our favorite comic book character of all time, to the point where we named our dog after her. And now she's finally going to make it to the big screen in the MORE

The new ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ cast has been announced …

The Celebrity Apprentice

And actually, it just occurred to me–why do they still call it The Celebrity Apprentice? At this point, they've stopped making the actual Apprentice, so the celebrity version is now the default. I don't know, that seems weird to me for some reason. Anyway, here's the just announced cast list for the new season of The Celebrity Apprentice–let's find out who's going to be selling pizzas in NYC this time ... Kate Gosselin - Had 8 kids, MORE

Benedict Cumberbatch set to bring ‘Doctor Strange’ to life!

Benedict Cumberbatch

If there's one thing the web loves, other than cats, crowdfunding, naked pictures of famous celebrities, rightfully damning people who leak naked pictures of famous celebrities against their will, and bacon, it's Benedict Cumberbatch. People just go apesh!t over Benedict and his smooth British accent and his perfectly angular -- but not too angular -- bone structure. Anyway, he's been cast as Doctor Strange in the new Marvel movie of the same MORE

Revealed: Who’s Who on ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’

American Horror Story: Coven

I think there's still like three months until FX's American Horror Story: Freakshow premieres, and while the web desperately clings to fake season four trailers to tide us over (whoops ... fell for it!), here's the character / cast list that leaked online. The unofficial who's who, via Out magazine ... Jessica Lange is Elsa Mars Emma Roberts is Maggie Sarah Paulson is the dual role of Siamese twins Bette and Dot (a vision to MORE

Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie cast in ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’

Lupita Nyong'o

When last we left Star Wars: Episode VII, I may have kind of sort of slightly hinted ("hinted", yeah) that I wasn't thrilled with how few female parts they wrote for the movie. Well, like a blessing from nerd heaven, two new female roles have been added to Episode VII, and they've been filled by Game Of Thrones' Gwendoline Christie and Lupita Nyong'o. Let it never be said that the people behind the new Star Wars movies don't know how to correct MORE

The ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ cast has been announced

Star Wars: Episode VII

So, good news and bad news internet! The good news is that the cast for the newest installment in the Star Wars franchise has been announced. Yay! The bad news is that it's keeping alive the tradition of only having one token female character for every six male characters. From the official website ... Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow will join the original stars of MORE

The ‘Jem and The Holograms’ movie has a cast!

Jem and The Holograms

Half the fun of rebooting old TV shows and movies from the 80's is seeing which actors and actresses who aren't even old enough to reference the source material get cast. Such is the case with the new Jem and the Holograms movie, which is filled with talented young actresses, none of whom were alive when the show was on the air. (To be fair, neither was I, so this is more an observation than a condemnation.) SlashFilm reports ... Aubrey MORE

They’re making another Karate Kid movie with Jaden Smith?

Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan | The Karate Kid 2

If After Earth should have taught Will Smith anything, it's that the American movie-going audience just isn't that into Jaden Smith, no matter how much money he spends buying his son a film career. It also should have taught Jaden that 14-year-olds are not the wizened philosophers he thinks they are, but that's beside the point. The point is, Jaden is going to give this acting thing another try with a second Karate Kid movie, so you can all look MORE

Lindsay Lohan was almost in The Avengers? (Sure she was)

Lindsay Lohan

The longer Lindsay Lohan's OWN docu-series is on the air, the more apparent it is that Lindsay really hasn't learned jack-sh!t from Oprah Winfrey along with her many attempts (6 times?) at rehab. Or her stalled career. Or that take-down piece about what an insane jag-weed she was to work with on the set of The Canyons (which was seriously one of the worst movies ever, no lie). Learning is not Lindsay's strong suit is what I'm saying. Anyway, her MORE

The cast of the ‘Fantastic Four’ reboot is …

Fantastic Four

Because FOX needs to make a Fantastic Four movie every so often or else they lose the film rights, here comes another reboot of the Fantastic Four. Except you could actually get a little bit excited here because the cast doesn't sound half bad! A little young, admittedly, but promising at least! Sources tell THR that the studio is making deals with Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell to star in the project that reboots MORE

Ugh: Justin Bieber might partake in ‘Fast & Furious 7′

Justin Bieber

Whenever an actor dies in the middle of filming, there's always the awkward question of what to do with their character. When Heath Ledger died during the making of The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, they replaced him with Jude Law, Colin Farrell and Johnny Depp, and they donated their salaries to Ledger's daughter. When Cory Monteith died on Glee, they wrote a tribute episode and played his character's death as straight as possible. And when MORE
