Remember when that Deadpool movie test footage leaked and everyone was really bummed because it reminded us just how much we wanted a Deadpool movie?

Prepare to be made happy. Variety reported yesterday that we’ll be getting a Deadpool movie on February 12, 2016 and it’ll be a spin-off of X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Like the test footage, it will star Ryan Reynolds and be directed by Tim Miller. It’s also being produced by Marvel’s Kevin Feige and Lauren Shuler Donner, which makes me feel like it’ll be in good hands.

It’s a long time to wait, but I think it’ll be worth it.

Matt-Smith-in-Doctor-Who-550x366

Matt Smith has moved on from battling weeping angels to battling the undead hordes in the upcoming movie, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. According to THR, he will be playing Elizabeth’s clergyman cousin, Mr. Collins, who is looking for a wife.

The zombie-fied adaptation of the Jane Austen classic has been in the works for years, but casting issues have bogged down production. However, it looks as though this movie is finally going to get made (whether you want it or not).

The rest of the cast includes Lily James (Elizabeth Bennet), Sam Riley (Fitzwilliam Darcy), Jack Huston (George Wickham), Bella Heathcote (Jane Bennet), and Douglas Booth (Mr. Bingley).

There were sneak peeks of the Batmobile, and then rumors that it had been stolen, but this time it’s video of the car in action. Not only do we see it during filming as it drives down the street, but it’s chasing bad guys and there’s gunfire, too!

See the videos after the break.

batman falcon

J.J. Abrams has given us another sneak peek at the Star Wars set. This time it’s a look at the Falcon with an awesome Batman crossover.

Could it be his answer to Snyder’s recent Stormtrooper arrest in Gotham? Snyder has been teasing Star Wars/Batman crossovers for a while now, so here’s hoping they keep this up.

Check it out after the break.

mr. fusion

Great Scott! Pretty soon you can own your very own Back to the Future Mr. Fusion Replica. This realistically scaled 18-inch electronic replica comes complete with lights and sounds, so all you need to do now is start shopping for a DeLorean and you’re all set.

I wonder what the mileage would be if you could work it into a Prius?

It’s estimated to arrive in March of 2015, but pre-orders are open now.

Groot-Selfie

Groot is a creature of few words, but just the same, he’s a fan of texting. You can even send him a text at 866-740-4531 and he’ll respond with exactly what you’d expect. You can thank Twilio employee Ricky Robinett for this little bit of fun. He tweeted out the news a few days ago and in no time Groot sent out tens of thousands of text messages!

The beautiful image you see above is just one piece of the incredible tapestry poster that was created to promote the upcoming The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies which opens on December 17th. Instead of releasing a bunch of separate posters, they created one with individual scenes that roll into one another in a way that makes the story feel truly epic. From Nerdist:

From left to right we’ve got Smaug facing off against Bard the Bowman, Gandalf and Galadriel reenacting some weird Shakespearan tragedy scene at what looks to be Dol Guldur with Elrond and Saruman in the background, Thorin looking dramatic on the throne inside Erebor (he’s surrounded by piles of gold, why so sad, Thorin?) with Bilbo in the foreground, Legolas and Tauriel with very serious expressions, Thranduil at the head of an Elven army, Thorin, Fili, and Kili in the middle of battle with Azog standing over them, and then Gandalf and Bilbo again. Whew.

Whew is right. It’s just three more months until we get to see the film, and if you weren’t excited about it before, this poster will likely have you counting down the days.

See the full poster after the break (and make sure to click and enlarge):

You might think all of the movies featuring Marvel characters have their own, unique endings. You’d be wrong. Sure, the characters and locations may change, but in many cases, the same thing happens every single time.

Watching the throne room ceremony at the end of Star Wars normally has fans complaining about how poor Chewbacca doesn’t walk away with a medal. Watching it without the famous John Williams score to back it up, will have fans uncomfortably squirming in their seats because it’s ridiculously awkward.

The Auralnauts have removed the music, added in a few coughs from the assembled rebels and a roar from Chewbacca that’s more like what you’re 5-year-old would sound like, and the whole ceremony goes from amazing to painful.

On Friday, a rumor began making the rounds (beginning with Bleeding Cool), that a Batmobile had been stolen while filming in Detroit. Never fear Bat Fans, because the safety of the Batmobile was later confirmed by Detroit police spokesman Sgt. Michael Woody who was quoted in the Detroit Free Press saying:

“The Batmobile is safe in the Batcave where it belongs.”

Zack Snyder also confirmed that the Batmobile is safe through a hilarious tweet involving a wayward Stormtrooper.
