Epix's Batman prequel Pennyworth casts killer young Alfred and Bruce Wayne's dad

- Alfred Pennyworth (Jack Bannon) is "a boyishly handsome, cheerful, charming, clever young man [in his 20s] from London. Honest, open-faced and witty, he's the kind of person people would never take for a ["former"] SAS killer. Alfred doesn't know how to reconcile the kind-hearted boy he used to be with the cold, calculated killer he was forced to become. He's a man on the make, who doesn't know what to make of himself yet." Alfred forms a security company with Thomas Wayne in this Batman prequel.

- Thomas Wayne (Ben Aldridge) is "a young, fresh-faced billionaire hailing from the east coast of the United States. Confident and extremely disciplined, this young aristocrat meets an unlikely business partner in Alfred Pennyworth." Thomas is not yet Bruce's father in this Batman prequel.

- Set in 1960s London, #Pennyworth will be a Batman prequel, i.e. absolutely NOT a Gotham prequel.

Oscar Isaac is surprised everyone hates Life Itself

Oscar Issac has spoken out about the reception to ONTD hate-fav Life Itself.

He states that he was surprised there was a full-on critical narrative to the film's reception. He believes its the best work he's ever done, channeling the grief over his mother's death, as well as his marriage and son's birth, all which occurred during production. He also states he isn't fazed by the response and finds it comforting that his opinion of his own work doesn't reflect how people see it.

Dan Fogelman, though, will probably be pressed for life (itself).



Barbra Streisand - Don't Lie To Me (New Music Video)

I know, I know... Barbra Streisand, but I thought this was actually really powerful. She wrote and directed the lyric video, and it kinda hit me in the gut. I thought the song itself was good (not great, but it worked--how much the video helped, I dunno), really, though, it was the video that I really think was so good.

Ah, screw it, I did like the song!

A source close to Ariana Grande tells People, “Their engagement is off, but they still plan on spending time together. It’s not like they split and never plan on seeing each other again. They just decided to slow things down.”

Another source close to Davidson says that the two “totally could get back together, because who knows with those two.”

No word yet on who gets full custody of their pet pig Piggie Smalls.

The Flash solo movie gets delayed AGAIN

Was supposed to start production in March for a 2020 release.
However, the script is still being tweaked and the studio thinks it won't make the original start date.
Ezra Miller also stars in the Fantastic Beasts franchise which starts production for the 3rd film in July.
Hence the shooting on the movie probably won't start till late 2019 and won't be released until 2021.
The Flash movie was first announced in 2014 along with Ezra Miller's casting for a 2018 release.


which movie will see the light of day first?

The Flash
neither will ever be released
