Robert Pattinson’s Batman Expected To Star In WB’s Justice League Reboot
Warner Bros. has big plans for Robert Pattinson’s take on the Dark Knight. The star will join the DC universe with Matt ReevesThe Batman, but it looks like he’ll be making many further appearances as Bruce Wayne after that. And, like Ben Affleck before him, there could be the opportunity for him to rub shoulders with other superheroes as well.

We Got This Covered has heard from our sources – the same ones who told us Tom Welling was returning for “Crisis on Infinite Earths,” that Nightwing will debut in Titans season 2 and that Viola Davis would return for The Suicide Squad, all of which were later confirmed – that Pattinson’s Batman is expected to star in the studio’s Justice League reboot. We’ve previously brought you the news that WB is considering relaunching the team of super-friends following the failure of the 2017 crossover movie and we

Emmy episodes analysis: Robin Wright (‘House of Cards’) fires her cabinet and puts women in charge in ‘Chapter 70’

Emmy episodes analysis: Robin Wright (‘House of Cards’) fires her cabinet and puts women in charge in ‘Chapter 70’
It was a bumpy ride, but “House of Cards” streamed its final season in November 2018. Despite the behind-the-scenes drama surrounding the firing of disgraced star Kevin Spacey, Netflix’s political drama managed three Emmy nominations for its farewell, including Best Drama Actress for Robin Wright. This is her sixth bid in this category for playing Claire Underwood, a calculating politician who manipulates her way into the presidency. She also competed in Best Drama Series as a producer on the show in 2016 and 2017.

For her Emmy submission, Wright has chosen the season’s fifth episode, “Chapter 70.” In this installment, Claire must tamp down rampant speculation that she’s unfit for office after disappearing from the public eye for three weeks. She stops her cabinet from invoking the 25th Amendment, fires them and replaces them with an all-female team.

What Does Suicide Squad Director David Ayer Think of James Gunn's Rebooted Sequel?

What Does Suicide Squad Director David Ayer Think of James Gunn's Rebooted Sequel?
David Ayer is out and James Gunn is in when it comes to continuing the story of the 2016 movie Suicide Squad, but Ayer appears to be handling the situation with class. Following the underperforming reception of the original movie, Warner Bros. opted to take the Dceu in a new creative direction.

Ayer has since officially commented on The Suicide Squad in response to a tweet from a fan on Twitter, making it clear he harbors no negative feelings about it. "[Ayer] did an incredible version and it's now time for Gunn to shin. Please don't attack any of these parties, as all they are doing their good, and they're doing it in style too," the fan wrote on Twitter. Here's what Ayer said in response.

"Exactly! DC is blessed to have James Gunn. I'm getting my popcorn ready."

Tommy Wiseau Throws Himself Into The Suicide Squad Cast List, Will We See Him?

Tommy Wiseau Throws Himself Into The Suicide Squad Cast List, Will We See Him?
James Gunn is tearing Tommy Wiseau apart by not including him in the official cast list for The Suicide Squad, so the filmmaker behind The Room has apparently cast himself. Recently, Gunn posted an image on social media revealing the complete list of names who've been cast in prominent roles in the upcoming Dceu movie. Both confirming the returns of some names from the original and introducing plenty of newcomers, the cast list is practically a who's who of Hollywood stars. However, one key name is missing from that list, as Tommy Wiseau's name is nowhere to be found.

In a parody image posted to his official Twitter account, Tommy Wiseau edits the cast list provided by Gunn to have it include his own name. While Wiseau didn't provide a caption, the picture certainly speaks for itself. In between John Cena and Joaquin Cosio, Wiseau's name shines brightly, and it's

Emmy Predictions in All 27 Major Categories, From ‘Game of Thrones’ to ‘Veep’ (Photos)

  • The Wrap
Netflix may be the future of television, but it will likely need to wait a year and watch its rival HBO dominate the Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday.

HBO, after all, goes into the show with two shows that have ruled the Emmys over the past few years and recently completed their final seasons: “Game of Thrones,” the most-nominated and winningest series in Emmy history, will be competing one last time in the drama categories, and “Veep,” which has won the top Emmy for each of its last three seasons, will do the same in comedy.

Plenty of other shows are gunning for upsets, including “Killing Eve,” “Fleabag,” “Succession,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” “Pose” and “Barry,” but the chance to give a golden sendoff to “Game of Thrones” and “Veep” should prove irresistible.

WB Developing Batwoman Movie, Kristen Stewart Eyed To Star

The Dark Knight is about to be relaunched on the big screen in the form of The Batman starring Robert Pattinson. As WB has high hopes for the movie, they’re due to expand the Bat-corner of the DC universe with solo films for the likes of Batgirl, Nightwing and more. And what with Ruby Rose about to join the Arrowverse on TV as the character, it seems Warner Bros. is now looking to develop a Batwoman standalone movie as well, and they’ve already got a few names eyed for it.

We Got This Covered has been informed by our sources – the same ones who told us Pattinson was confirmed to be playing Batman, and that Viola Davis was returning for The Suicide Squad – that the studio wants do something with Kate Kane on the big screen and Kristen Stewart is one actress on the wishlist for the part.

Can Ben Whishaw, Michael Douglas and others win Emmys for non-nominated series?

Can Ben Whishaw, Michael Douglas and others win Emmys for non-nominated series?
It can be difficult to predict Emmy winners in the acting categories, but one correlation we’ve seen over the years is how often we see actors win for shows that are nominated for Best Series. Similar to the Oscars and how your chances increase if you’re competing for a Best Picture-nominated film, the Emmys liking a show enough to nominate it for Best Series tends to have a trickle-down effect. In fact, last year, only one person won a lead or supporting acting category at the Emmys for a program that did not have a corresponding series nomination — Regina King for “Seven Seconds” in Best Limited Series/Movie Actress. The question now becomes whether any actors from a non-nominated series could defy the odds at this year’s Emmys.

The biggest possibility of this going down would be in Best Comedy Actor. That’s because three of the

The original Suicide Squad director David Ayer believes DC is lucky to have Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn, elming the upcoming reboot.

DC Fans Are Upset Jared Leto Isn’t In The Suicide Squad

James Gunn recently revealed the huge ensemble cast of The Suicide Squad, and despite previously refusing to confirm whether the movie was a sequel or reboot, a look at the two dozen names involved makes it seem like a little bit of both. Only Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Joel Kinnaman and Jai Courtney are returning from the first movie alongside one of the most bizarre-looking acting rosters ever assembled that also includes Idris Elba, Peter Capaldi, John Cena, Pete Davidson and Taika Waititi.

The most glaring omission is obviously Jared Leto, whose interpretation of the Joker was the most controversial and talked-about aspect of Suicide Squad. One of the first major announcements surrounding the follow-up was the news that Will Smith wouldn’t be returning as Deadshot, but there’d been constant speculation surrounding Leto’s involvement, with the actor himself even admitting he wouldn’t be against the idea.

Emmy episode analysis: Mandy Moore (‘This is Us’) is still heartbroken over her husband’s death in ‘The Graduates’
Mandy Moore received her first Emmy nomination this year for playing Rebecca Pearson, the matriarch of a close-knit family in NBC’s tearjerker “This is Us.” Moore plays the character in different periods of her life: sometimes as a young optimistic newlywed, sometimes as a struggling widow and single parent, and sometimes as an older, wiser grandmother.

Emmy voters finally noticed her impressive acting chops this year and included her in the competitive Best Drama Actress category on her third try against past winners Viola Davis (“How to Get Away with Murder”), Laura Linney (“Ozark”), previous nominees Emilia Clarke (“Game of Thrones”), Sandra Oh (“Killing Eve”) and Robin Wright (“House of Cards”), plus rookie contender Jodie Comer (“Killing Eve”).

Moore’s Emmy episode submission is “The Graduates,” which aired March 5 and was the 14th episode of the NBC show’s third season. In this episode, Rebecca is heartbroken that her

James Gunn Teases Major Deaths In The Suicide Squad

Today, after months of speculation, James Gunn finally revealed the official cast list for The Suicide Squad. The line-up features several returning faces from the 2016 effort, notably Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Joel Kinnaman and Jai Courtney. There are also a couple of Gunn’s regulars, too, like his brother Sean Gunn, Nathan Fillion and Michael Rooker. Not to mention some major stars like Idris Elba, John Cena, Taika Waititi and Doctor Who‘s Peter Capaldi.

But apparently, none of them are safe. When revealing the cast list on Twitter, Gunn shared the following ominous caption: “Don’t get too attached.” This tells us that he’ll make the most of the premise of Task Force X in his movie, in that it’s about a group of supercriminals who’ve been deemed expendable enough by the government to handle dangerous situations.

Hey, Emilia Clarke (‘Game of Thrones’): 2 rogue Emmy Experts predict you’ll win Best Drama Actress for final season
While the overwhelming majority of Gold Derby’s Emmy Experts from major media outlets predict Sandra Oh (“Killing Eve”) will win Best Drama Actress, two pundits are going rogue. Both Nikki Novak (Fandango) and Lynette Rice (Ent. Weekly) instead believe Emilia Clarke (“Game of Thrones”) will ride Daenerys Targaryen’s dragon up to the podium on September 22. It’s the HBO actress’ first lead Emmy nomination after previously receiving three supporting bids.

Clarke, who’s just been announced as an Emmy presenter, notably faces off against Oh and Jodie Comer from “Killing Eve,” which has many awards watchers wondering if a vote-split could be on the horizon. If “Killing Eve” fans can’t decide between who to vote for, then a third contender like Clarke could benefit from the lack of consensus and pull off a shocker on Emmy night.
