Nightshade is yet another villain to appear in Black Panther

Overstuffing comic-book movies with tons of villains is a complaint that goes back to the '90s. And BLACK PANTHER already has a few, including Andy Serkis ' Ulysses Klaw, Michael B.

Black Panther's Chadwick Boseman stars in Thurgood Marshall biopic

From Jackie Robinson, to James Brown , to now Thurgood Marshall, BLACK PANTHER's Chadwick Boseman loves playing in biopics. Which is fine by me, because Boseman has gravitas and charisma to spare. And, however the films themselves came out, he was always the best part of them. His next one, MARSHALL, is about the aforementioned Thurgood Marshall. And, lucky for us, it won't...

LeBron James developing new television series There Goes the Neighborhood

Now, I'm not a sports guy. At all. I, no joke, thought for the longest time LeBron James was a football player, not a basketball player. So I don't care how many home runs he makes per game, or how many times he's sent to the penalty box for fighting on the ice, this is a movie and TV news site, so I'm only here to report that James has a new development deal with...
