Cast This: Geralt of The Witcher (Netflix series)

As we continue to wait for a great movie adaptation of a video game (how many of us thought ASSASSIN'S CREED might finally break the trend?), one popular game series -- or at least its source material -- is moving to the small screen instead. Rather than trying to condense the extensive realm of the Continent and its bestiary of horrors into a feature-length movie, the epic...

Cast This: He-Man (Masters of the Universe)

Over the past decade, Hollywood nostalgia for famous properties from the 1980s has given us (among other things) a seemingly endless live-action TRANSFORMERS franchise, a trio of SMURFS movies, a couple of big-screen G.I. JOE missions and one JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS. But one guy who can't seem to get a break is He-Man. In the thirty years since shirtless Dolph Lundgren battled...

Cast This: Adam Warlock (Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3)

Even with the Marvel Cinematic Universe expanding further into the far reaches of the galaxy, there's one major cosmic character (that Marvel has the rights to) who has yet to make the leap from the comic pages: Adam Warlock is still waiting for his big-screen introduction. Writer-director James Gunn has stated that Warlock is one of his favorites, and had originally...

The number of big-screen adaptations of DC Comics superheroes continues to grow... even if the actors who will portray many of them remains a mystery. Batgirl now joins the list of as-yet-uncast DC characters that also includes Nightwing , Catwoman , Poison Ivy , and Hal Jordan and John Stewart of the Green Lantern Corps. It was recently announced that "Buffy the...

Cast This: Snake Plissken (Escape from New York remake)

An update of John Carpenter 's ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK has been threatened several times over the course of a decade, initially with Gerard Butler planning to wear the eye-patch as iconic badass Snake Plissken. Directors like Len Wiseman , Brett Ratner and Breck Eisner briefly sat in the director's chair before departing. Those early attempts ultimately crashed like...

Cast This: Commander Shepard of Mass Effect

The new sci-fi videogame MASS EFFECT: ANDROMEDA is about to be released to consume the majority of my available time, much like the MASS EFFECT trilogy that preceded it. A movie based on the original space epic series has struggled to become a reality. An adaptation was announced way back in 2010 but the project remains languishing in development hell, undoubtedly in part...

Cast This: Nightwing

Lately, the DC Extended Universe has been very cooperative in providing material for this column -- we've recently fielded suggestions for Hal Jordan and John Stewart in GREEN LANTERN CORPS , a director for THE FLASH , and Poison Ivy and Catwoman for GOTHAM CITY SIRENS (and narrowly missed a chance to cast the director for THE BATMAN when Matt Reeves discussed, departed...

Cast This: Catwoman and Poison Ivy for David Ayer's Gotham City Sirens

The DC Comics Extended Universe is slowly congealing with the upcoming JUSTICE LEAGUE and other solo superhero features like WONDER WOMAN, AQUAMAN, THE FLASH and BATMAN. However, the box office hit SUICIDE SQUAD created another opportunity to add a different angle on the DCEU thanks to Margot Robbie 's breakout bat-swinging performance as flexible felon Harley Quinn,...

Some of DC Comics' greatest superheroes will unite later this year for JUSTICE LEAGUE , and Warner Bros. has been busy putting together solo adventures for the team members. WONDER WOMAN will be deflecting bullets on the big screen this summer, AQUAMAN swims into theaters next year, and Ben Affleck is expected to continue the Dark Knight's crusade on crime in THE...

Cast This: Hal Jordan and John Stewart (Green Lantern Corps)

It has only been a few years since DC Comics superhero GREEN LANTERN flew into theaters, only to be greeted with underwhelming audience and box office response. Since that time, the Christian Bale version of Batman hung up his cowl, and Warner Bros. has raced to unite the lineup of DC's most recognizable costumed characters on the big screen in an effort to emulate the...

Cast This: Rambo

Sylvester Stallone recently returned to his most famous role of boxing legend Rocky Balboa to help train his late friend's son in CREED, but the actor is leaving his other iconic character in the past. Although another RAMBO movie had been in development since Stallone directed himself blowing apart Burmese soldiers in 2008's simply but appropriately titled RAMBO, Sly...

Cast This: Blade

The mighty Marvel machine has been thundering ahead like an unstoppable juggernaut, and its stunning business victory has helped them reclaim characters whose rights had been sold to various studios during the company's financial instability in the 1990s (the Juggernaut is not among them, ironically). Since then, we've seen new versions of Daredevil, Elektra, Ghost Rider,...
