ScreenCrush’s WookieeLeaks is a weekly roundup of everything ‘Star Wars’! From The Force Awakens, to the upcoming spinoffs and the TV shows, if it pertains to that long ago, far away galaxy, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, new toys reveal new characters, Mark Hamill has some fun in Ireland, and BB-8 visits Disneyland.
Just when you thought we might be done with Star Wars news today — nope! The glorious internet has provided us with our first legitimate look at Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker in The Force Awakens, and he looks like he’s aged quite nicely into a wizened Jedi.
Batman’s iconic animated series has influenced The Dark Knight’s legacy and vocal talent for decades, but did you know that Tim Curry almost voiced The Joker before Mark Hamill? Or that the animated adaptation created Harley Quinn altogether? You are vengeance, and you are the night, you will enjoy our 18th episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?,’ which flies through Gotham City on leather wings for Batman: The Animated Series!
In case you haven’t been paying attention, there’s been a bit of a commotion over Amy Schumer’s photo spread in GQ, which features the comedian and actor cheekily posing with Star Wars characters. Lucasfilm has officially — and repeatedly — expressed their disapproval online, while veteran Star Wars actor Mark Hamill is singing a very different tune.
Last night’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel has already gone down as one of the biggest triumphs in Comic-Con history. While there wasn’t a new trailer or new footage, there was something special in the air. The enthusiasm of the cast, old and new, was palpable. A behind-the-scenes featurette moved the audience to tears. Even grumpy ol’ Harrison Ford bothered to show up and he…actually smiled? A lot? And yes, there is video evidence of this phenomenon because the whole hour-long panel has made its way online (and it’s all nice and official, too).
The Killing Joke is one of the more notable entries in Batman comic book history, offering one of the most sadistic versions of the Joker to date. Alan Moore’s book is one of the more divisive among fans, who either love it or despise it, and in further proving their commitment to the darker side of superhero stories, DC is taking The Killing Joke and adapting it…into an animated feature, of all things.
‘You Think You Know TV?’ is a ScreenCrush original series that dives deep into the worlds of your favorite TV series and freeze frames a few tidbits you might not have known, as with our first installments for Arrow, Mad Men, The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. Our companion series ‘You Think You Know Movies?’ has already tackled everything from Star Wars to The Avengers and Spider-Man, but now it’s time to hit the ground running with some Flash-y facts from our latest video!
ScreenCrush’s WookieeLeaks is a weekly roundup of everything Star Wars! From Episode 7, to the upcoming spinoffs and the TV shows, if it pertains to that long ago, far away galaxy, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, we update the rumor mill with Star Wars Celebration details, dive into the new names for the Empire and the Rebels, and learn how much it costs to get Luke Skywalker’s autograph.
OK, well now that’s a lot more like it. The 2015 run of The Flash hasn’t been that strong, with an inability to plot over the long term and a semi-disastrous redo of the timeline last week hurting the overall quality of the program. But “Tricksters” does what the show does best: Dole out a fun villain of the week and incrementally move the overall season along without really giving away the farm. That seems like an odd thing to say given the flashbacks in tonight’s episode, but in reality, this episode told us far less than it initially appears.
The Flash already traveled to the past in advance of Tuesday’s “Rogue Time,” but March 31 installment “Tricksters” will head all the way back to 1990. Mark Hamill himself reprises his role as the Scarlet Speedster’s trickiest foe, even facing off against original Flash John Wesley Shipp in first photos from the upcoming “Tricksters!”
