The official title of the next chapter in the Star Wars saga was announced this morning, and there’s already been a little speculation among fans about who The Last Jedi might be — is it Luke Skywalker (the obvious choice) or Rey (the second-most obvious choice)? As it turns out, we already know, and by “we,” we mean you do, too…unless you didn’t see The Force Awakens. But observant fans will tell you that there may be a third option — one that’s less apparent, but a little more intriguing.
The most widely recognized iterations of Batman’s constant foe the Joker would probably have to be Heath Ledger as the unchained mad-dog of The Dark Knight, Jack Nicholson as an urbane creep in Tim Burton’s 1989 film, and to a lesser extent, Cesar Romero’s campy turn in the goofy TV series from the ’60s. But Mark Hamill logged more hours as the Clown Prince of Crime than the rest of them put together, voicing the Joker in the long-running animated series and its many spin-offs. The man with the greatest claim to the Joker persona dusted off his special crazy-voice this week for a more pointedly political purpose than the usual cocktail-party entertainment.
Like the official subtitle, plot details for Star Wars: Episode VIII are still unknown…well, mostly. We do know that it picks up right where The Force Awakens left off and that most of our favorite characters from J.J. Abrams’ film will return. Now that we've turned our calendars over to 2017, the sequel is just 11 months away from hitting theaters, which means we’re about to learn a whole lot about Episode VIII — starting with some new story info from director Rian Johnson.
We lost an incomparable actress, writer, icon, and amazing human being when Carrie Fisher passed away on December 27, 2016. No one is feeling that loss as deeply as those closest to her, and in the days since Fisher’s passing, we’ve had the privilege of reading and hearing some of their remembrances. Today, Mark Hamill has shared his own personal tribute to Fisher, offering a touching, humorous and appropriately candid essay for his Star Wars co-star and longtime friend.
With Carrie Fisher’s death came an overwhelming amount of tributes and love from her friends and co-stars. A ton of celebrities took to social media to share their grief and funny anecdotes with the rest of us, including many who had known her in a galaxy far, far away. Oscar Isaac, who plays Poe Dameron in the new Star Wars trilogy, shared a photo of Fisher and Mark Hamill on his Facebook page.
‘The Flash’ Season 3 closes 2016 with “The Present” of Savitar’s deadly prophecies, but does that big future twist change the entire series from here on out? Plus, what’s the real story behind Julian and Dr. Alchemy? Find out in our full review!
The Flash has only defined a select number of Earths outside of the 52 we know to exist, but tonight’s winter finale “The Present” will get us up to speed a bit more on Earth-3, home to John Wesley Shipp’s Jay Garrick. Our first clip also confirms that Mark Hamill will reprise his tricky role on that Earth, but as you’ll see, Barry and Jay have bigger problems.
The Flash just couldn’t celebrate Christmas without Mark Hamill up to his old tricks, and “The Present” is all ours, come Season 3's midyear finale. Our first photos for The Flash’s 2016 post-“Invasion!” sign-off has arrived, as Jay Garrick and a very different-looking Trickster make their presence known.
In the wake of this week’s election results, much of the country was left shocked by what’s perceived as one of the biggest cultural shifts in recent memory. Hollywood was not exempt, with many celebrities venting their anger and thoughts of solidarity on social media, including, perhaps unsurprisingly, the writers of the next Star Wars movie.
Just when DC had us distracted with one shiny animation return, so too is the Justice League ready to grace our screens again in animated form. See for yourself in new clips from the forthcoming Justice League Action, including musical moments, alien worlds and a little Bat-time travel.
