News broke this week that indie darling and 'Frances Ha' star Greta Gerwig is headed to CBS to write, produce and star in the new sorta-spinoff of 'How I Met Your Mother,' titled 'How I Met Your Dad.' Cue surprising controversy as fans lashed out at the precious star: is she selling her soul to the home of lesser cable programming, or is this an opportunity for Gerwig to line her pockets and make more of the films she wants to make? Should we feel angry and betrayed, or thrilled and supportive? Why can't we have mixed feelings about it? In the realm of the internet, our reactions can only ever be extreme.
Warner Bros. has been trying to bring the Justice League to the silver screen for some time, if only to compete against Marvel's 'The Avengers' franchise. Following Christopher Nolan's now-famous trilogy of Batman films, Zack Snyder stepped up to the plate and served up a rebooted take on the 'Man of Steel'. After that film's success, Snyder agreed to direct the follow-up, a still untitled 'Batman vs. Superman' movie, which will feature three of the most famous DC heroes of all time -- Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) -- and will mark a major step into making 'Justice League' a reality.
But before that happens, Warner Bros. Animation recently released the latest the animated direct-to-DVD 'Justice League: War,' which unites the DC superhero team for an epic battle to save Earth from destruction, and may also serve as a dry run, for a live-action 'Justice League' movie.
Back in 1989, Tim Burton introduced audiences to a new version of the caped crusader with his 'Batman' film, starring Michael Keaton as the dark hero and Jack Nicholson as his foe, the Joker. The film was, of course, a massive success, spawning three sequels (though Burton and Keaton only returned for the first) and paving the way for the darker, more serious superhero films we have today. Twenty-five years later, we revisit the cast of this comic book movie classic and see what they're up to now.
Released in 1996, 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' tells the story of Samantha, a mother and schoolteacher with amnesia, who recovers her memories and discovers she was once an assassin for the CIA. Directed by Renny Harlin, the film was written by Shane Black, who was at the time becoming one of the highest-paid screenwriters in Hollywood, thanks to his work on 'Lethal Weapon.' Black more recently wrote the screenplay for and directed 'Iron Man 3,' but 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' remains a cult classic. Eighteen years later, we revisit Geena Davis, Samuel L. Jackson and the rest of the cast, and see what they're up to now.
Released in 1997, 'The Fifth Element' starred Bruce Willis as a cab driver and former special forces officer in the 23rd century who must help a mysterious woman that just so happens to be the key to saving the entire world from destruction. Directed by Luc Besson, who would go on to direct the 'Taken' films, the highly inventive futuristic sci-fi tale was a massive success upon release and is now regarded as a cult classic. Seventeen years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.

In 1998, HBO unveiled 'Sex and the City,' a show about four women navigating life, love, and sex in New York, led by the voice of fashionable sex columnist Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker). It kickstarted a premium cable movement, proving that networks like HBO and Showtime could make long-lasting, quality shows, and paving the way for future generations of programming. The wildly popular show ended in 2004 and led to two films, and now, 10 years later, we look back at the cast of this modern classic and see what they're up to these days.
Released in 1998, 'Wild Things' was a campy and twisted erotic thriller following the exploits of two high school students who accuse their guidance counselor of a sex crime, but there's more to this story than meets the eye: corrupt cops, betrayal, Bill Murray as a hilarious lawyer, and loads of cash. The film received mixed reviews at the time of its release, but has become something of a cult classic in the years since. 16 years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
