The Dark Knight Lives (TWENTY-THREE)

It was late at night and Gotham was mostly silent. Inhabitants of the city were either in their homes preparing for the festivities of the coming day or scared to death because of the recent events transpiring in Gotham.

The police depot was just as quiet. Police officers had either retired to their homes to spend time with their families before the big day or were silently lurking about the station.

Commissioner Gordon couldn’t sleep, choosing to stay at the depot. There was something unnerving about having two prisoners as dangerous as Harley Quinn and the other one who refused to reveal her name in the station. Whoever they were working for could get the bright idea to try and bust them out. And what would he do in that situation? Three-fourths of Gotham’s police force was away and the last fourth surely wasn’t prepared for a potential attack. Continue reading The Dark Knight Lives (TWENTY-THREE)

Paul Dano Is Cast as The Riddler in ‘The Batman’

The Batman is well underway and with Zoe Kravitz cast as Selina Kyle/Catwoman in The Batman on Tuesday the casting confirmations have continued.

Wednesday, Golden-Globe nominated actor Paul Dano, known for his roles in Little Miss Sunshine and 12 Years a Slave, was revealed to be cast as Edward Nashton/The Riddler in The Batman.

To be honest, I’m not too thrilled about the casting. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve only seen him in one movie, that being Cowboys vs. Aliens, so I can’t really judge his casting off of his acting skills but I’m judging off of visual preference and I feel his face looks too soft for the role.

One of DC Comics’ biggest weaknesses has been the casting for the villains. Whether we’re talking about Jared Leto’s horrendous representation of The Joker, Jesse Eisenburg’s annoying rendition of Lex Luthor or even Mark Strong’s somewhat exacerbating performance as Dr. Sivana in Shazam! the franchise has not hit any major winners in the villain department and it seems that trend may continue.

I was excited about Robert Pattinson’s casting as Bruce Wayne/Batman and I loved Zoe Kravitz’s casting as Catwoman but Paul Dano as The Riddler…I’ll have to wait and see.

Who’s next to join the party? I’m very interested in finding out.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a remarkable day.

‘The Rise of Skywalker’: A New Photo of Zorri Bliss and a Confirmation on the Reylo Phenomenon Has Arrived

The Rise of Skywalker is drawing ever closer with each passing day and with a new trailer on the horizon, Entertainment Weekly has delivered a tease for the film to only bolster our excitement.

Here’s the Entertainment Weekly photo that came out this week.

It’s a photo of one of the newest characters to join the franchise, an old friend of Poe Dameron’s named Zorri Bliss. Apparently, the heroes will locate her on a new planet named Kijimi where she seems to hold a tidbit of information that they will need in their secret scavenger hunt.

What I’m garnering from this photo is its nostalgic Attack of the Clones vibe. Maybe it’s her helmet or maybe it’s the cinematography. Whatever the case, I’m liking this picture a lot.

Throwback Friday: What Can the Next Trailer for ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ Possibly Show Us?

For both The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, we weren’t given trailers in August to enjoy, making the marketing for The Rise of Skywalker a touch bit different than last time as we were given new footage with the D23 Special Look. In case, you’ve forgotten how awesome it was let this remind you.

While this new footage was expectedly cryptic it still felt like we were seeing way more than we ought to know with Dark Rey appearing at the end to blow the Star Wars fandom’s socks off.

The new footage was so interesting in fact that I almost feel like I don’t want an official second trailer in October, lest we learn even more juicy details about the film. But that’s the thing. With the first teaser revealing Palpatine via his iconic cackle and the second trailer highlighting a potential Evil Rey what can the next trailer possibly show us to top that? Kylo Ren with a green lightsaber fighting Palpatine?!

Like I said before, I almost wish we didn’t have to see another trailer because I’m already beyond excited to see the movie but another trailer we will get regardless. So, what can this next trailer provide us that we haven’t already been given? Well, for this week’s Throwback Friday, I’m here to share a few ideas that could make the second The Rise of Skywalker trailer an utter blast to watch.

If Only She Could Tell the Truth: Part 5

Qi’ra stepped into the musky indoors of The Lodge and her nose immediately wrinkled. Aliens and humans crowded every nook and cranny, feeling the area with their individual stenches that gave the space a unique aroma.

She looked over at Han who was gazing at the place with an impressed smirk.

“Welcome to The Lodge,” she said. Continue reading If Only She Could Tell the Truth: Part 5
