The team at Ismahawk is back with a brand new Minute Match-Up, this time imagining what a battle would look like between Heath Ledger's iconic take on The Joker and Jared Leto's...well, whatever the hell he was doing in Suicide Squad. But as you'll see, it turns out it's actually Harley Quinn who gets her revenge and comes out on top in the end.

As the day swiftly approaches that Logan hits theaters and Hugh Jackman hangs up his adamantium claws for good, some fans have been desperately hoping for one last chance to see Wolverine and Deadpool on screen together. (I mean, they’ve technically been on screen together before, but we don’t like to talk about that.) Most of that has focused on the possibility of a Wolverine cameo in Deadpool 2, but it seems like there was once a chance for Wade Wilson to pop up in Logan. Director James Mangold told We Got This Covered:
“There were times early on in the story where I played with the idea of Hugh coming along, and I don’t want to give away anything, but I played with there being an underground railroad where there were a couple of other mutants that he met on the journey. It always seemed to detract from the loneliness of the story though and became a kind of cameo.
“Still, there was always a curiosity. I’m so cautious of it though, despite how much fans want it to happen. You find these moments where you’re trying to please people and write these scenes where they’ll bump into somebody but it always just seems like an awkward cameo unless you can make it fit organically and the character is integral to the story.”
So he doesn’t say that any of those mutants traveling the underground were Deadpool, but it would have left the door open a bit. I am personally glad that Ryan Reynolds won’t be turning up in Logan. It sounds like Mangold was serious about telling the best possible story, and while I haven’t seen the film yet, if the trailers are giving us even a 50% accurate read of the film’s tone, there is no room for the wisecracking’ Wade Wilson in Logan’s mutant desolation. It seems like it would just be really out of place and distracting, unless you made some sort of alternate universe sad-sack Wade Wilson, and I don’t think that’s what anyone was hoping for either.
So it looks like our last great hope for a Deadpool/Wolverine meet up is still in Deadpool 2, and it still sounds like that may be totally possible, so don’t give up yet.

Ever since Lucasfilm revealed that the title for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, fan have been discussing whether the title is singular or plural. Like many fans, I believed the title was singular and that it refers to Luke Skywalker. Well, it looks like the title might actually be plural and refers to more than one Jedi.
New logos were recently released on the official Star Wars Twitter accounts from other countries, and according to Games Rader, all of the languages present the title in the plural. The languages include Spanish, French, Italian, and German.
So, according to all of these translations of the title, which you can see below, Jedi is plural and it's safe to say that Luke Skywalker and Rey are Jedi. Will there be more than that? We'll just have to wait and see!

Jar Jar Binks is one of the most loathed characters in the Star Wars universe. Today we've learned what his fate is in the new canon, and it's pretty depressing. Even if you hate Jar Jar, you might actually feel a little sorry for him.
After the events of The Phantom Menace, Jar Jar became an interim Galactic Senator in Attack of the Clones and pushed the War Powers Act, which weakened the Republic and helped create the Empire. Yeah, that was obviously a huge mistake, and it wasn't something that was missed by the people.
In the new Star Wars book Aftermath: Empire's End, we have details on the sad fate of Jar Jar. In the book, he resides on the planet of Naboo... in exile... as a clown. Here's an excerpt from the book (thanks to Mashable) that highlights Jar Jar's sad fate:
A refugee boy named Mapo encounters a Gungan performing for kids on the streets, clowning around in a fountain twice a day while being studiously avoided by the grown-ups. "Meesa Jar Jar," says the clown when Mapo introduces himself. The clown distracts the orphan from his own sadness by popping his eyes and bulging his cheeks, but is hiding a sadness of his own. "Jar Jar makin some uh-oh mistakens," the Gungan says, explaining why he isn't wanted anywhere either. "Desa hisen Naboo tink I help the uh-oh Empire." He stares into the distance, suggesting he knows more than he's saying.
Jar Jar went from a happy-go-lucky guy with hope and optimism to being ostracized and hated. Becoming a clown was the only way that he could cope with his existence and survive the miserable life that he now has. Actions have consequences. Maybe he shouldn't have backed the wrong horse.
Do you feel sorry for where Jar Jar ended up or do you think he got what he deserved?

This is the story of one man and his bizarre mission. YouTuber Dog Shit is vowing to eat a picture with Jason Segel's face on it every day until Segel responds with a video of him eating his face. Capped with the hashtag #EatMyFaceSegel, this video does exactly what it says it does. With day one down, it'll be interesting to see how long he will continue to eat photos until Segel responds. If I were Segel, I would probably wait a week to see his level of dedication before I did the same.
Really I'm just curious as to what kind of paper that picture is printed on! Printer paper or glossy stuff would be awful to eat. I know there's a type of sugary edible paper that wouldn't be as bad, but it's still paper. This guy must be really desperate to get some YouTube fame. Check out his first video below.

The end is here in the latest teaser for The Leftovers season three. While season two revolved around a hoax, it would appear that this time the apocalypse is finally coming. This is a short tease, but damn, there is a lot to take in! For starters, there seems to be a massive flood on the way, and Kevin and Nora are getting on a plane despite the fact that it sounds like the plane will be crashing anyway. Then you take the disaster footage, rioting, and Amish people, and this baby has it all. Did we just see Nora's brother Matt kill somebody?! I'm definitely more excited for what this final season has to offer after watching, how about you? The final season airs April 16th on HBO.

Ru...fi...ooooooooooooo! Steven Spielberg's Peter Pan film Hook introduced us to a lively and wild group of Lost Boys led by a kid named Rufio. I haven't met anyone that grew up with this film in their lives that didn't like the mohawked leader.
The character was played by Dante Basco in the film, and he has such a passion for Rufio that he has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help raise money to make a Rufio origin film called Bangarang! Basco will executive produce the movie, and it will be written and directed by Jonah Feingold, who is also currently working on a new Peter Pan feature film project called Wendy, which will star Pitch Perfect actress Brittany Snow.
They offer up a synopsis for their film and also have a video that you can watch below in which they discuss their plans.
This is the story about Rufio, before the mohawk, before Neverland, before he was The Pan.
Roofus is a 13-year-old kid who is destined to be more than he is. After his mother is forced to put him into a foster home, he and his rag-tag group of best friends - a Jamaican boy named Julani and a bright-eyed latina force of nature named Ella - find a way for Roofus to escape his ill fate, find his happy thought and fulfill his destiny.
The story has been reverse engineered from what was set-up in Hook. We answer all the questions you've ever wondered -- How and why is Rufio the leader of the Lost Boys? Where does "bangarang" come from? And of course, how he gets the mohawk.
I'd actually love to see this get made. I have no doubt that all of the fans of Hook will come out to help back the project. They are looking raise $30,000 for a short film, and they're already more than half way to hitting their goal! If they get to $200,000, they'll make a feature length film.
This sounds like a fun story, and If you want to help it get made into a film, click here.
HOOK's Dante Basco Is Kickstarting a Rufio Origin Film Called BANGARANG
I had high hopes for Matt Damon’s fantasy adventure film The Great Wall. I enjoy watching these films, and the Chinese have made some beautifully epic martial arts fantasy films in the past. Unfortunately, The Great Wall was a big disappointment.
The movie was visually stunning, and I loved the epic scope of it and all of the costume, setting, and creature designs. All of that stuff complimented many of the film’s awesome action sequences. So yes, the movie was incredibly fun to look at, but unfortunately, it was just a hollow story with an amusingly bad script.
This film was jumping all over the place, there was no flow, and the story was just littered with holes. It was a big mess! I’m sure there was a good story in there somewhere, but it seemed like there were huge sections of the story removed and the audience was left wondering what in the hell was going on with certain characters and other elements of the story. I should also probably mention that the dialogue was terrible.
The movie probably would have been a lot better had Matt Damon or Willem Dafoe not been part of it. Their characters were so awkwardly developed, especially Damon’s. There were moments in the film when I was laughing because his acting and the dialogue he delivered was just so bad. He had this weird accent in the film that I couldn’t quite figure out, but it sounded like an Irish-American accent that you’d hear in the movie Gangs of New York.
Having actors like Damon and Dafoe in the film were incredibly distracting. I know the reason they were cast in the film was so that the movie would have an international appeal, but it just seemed to make the movie worse. I think the movie would have been slightly better had they not cast any popular American actors in the movie.
This is one of those rare moments where I felt embarrassed for the actors. They were just thrown into a film they didn’t fit into. I don’t know how else to explain it. If you want to see Damon give one of the worst and most embarrassing performances of his career, then this is the movie for you. I got a laugh out of it, some may you will as well.
Regardless of all that, I’ll come back around to the positive aspects of the movie, which is that it was beautiful to look at and there were some pretty awesome action sequences, so I'll give director Yimou Zhang that. It’s not enough for me to want to recommend it to anyone, though. Save your money.
Review: THE GREAT WALL Is an Awesomely Terrible Movie
Cowboy Bebop is an episodic anime with a very set structure. The team gets a bounty, the team hunts the bounty, the team moves on. Of course, if that was really all the show was about it would not be one of the most celebrated anime of all time. Each episode features character development from each person as they struggle to find meaning in their current lives. That's a poor summary on my part, so you should watch this longer video by Channel Criswell talking about the series' nuances and what they mean in a larger scope.

Ben Affleck's Batman in Batman v Superman could have had a completely different look! This concept art shows us a couple of the alternate designs for the Dark Knight, and it's definitely a lot more technical that what director Zack Snyder ended up using.
The art was created by Constantine Sekeris, who was brought on board to help costume designer Michael Wilkinson brought in to work on the costume designs for the film. In a previously released episode of DC All Access, Wilkinson talked about working on the suit design:
"For Batman, it was really important for Zack that we created a whole new Batman. The most important thing for our Batman is that he comes across a real hulking, big guy.' He's super-pumped up. He's going to be even bigger than Superman's silhouette. So his strength is not through armor and gadgets and things, it is that he is a tower of muscle. Zack Snyder is a huge fan of Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns and we looked a lot at that silhouette."
As you can see, these alternate designs aren't that. As cool as these costume designs are, I still think the one they ended up using for the film was the best option. I loved that Batman suit! What do you all think of these alternate designs?

MONOPOLY Says Goodbye to the Thimble
Pokemon Mega Bloks are on their way to America. The toys, which have been rolling out in Japan for the past year, will finally make their debut in the states according to Kotaku. The current images shown are all we have of this new line but expect more pictures to pop up over the weekend during the New York Toy Fair. I'm thinking about picking some up when they release, what about you?
POKEMON Mega Bloks Are on the Way
Director Christopher McQuarrie is currently preparing to shoot Mission: Impossible 6 and up until this point, we haven't really known what the story will hold. In an interview with Empire, the director opens up about what he's looking to do with the character this time around, and he plans on taking it in a slightly different direction.
McQuarrie explains that he wants to focus on the character Ethan Hunt and who he is. He tells them, "It’s a very different Ethan Hunt, I can promise you that." He explains:
"I’ve seen five of these movies and I don’t know who Ethan Hunt is. One movie sort of dealt with his personal life; the other movies are about people speculating what’s really going on in Ethan’s head. I want to know who Ethan is in this movie, I want an emotional journey for this character, and Tom really embraced it. I don’t want to string together a bunch of action scenes, I want to actually deal with character. So I put Ethan in a bunch of complicated moral quandaries, and I’m trying to find ways to connect them – and then, ironically, the way to connect them was through giant action scenes."
I like that this next film will actually delve into who this character is and what's really going on inside his head. That should bring a completely fresh vibe to the franchise. As for the action, you can't have a Mission: Impossible movie without it! McQuarrie says he even has one sequence already in mind.
“I may have found something today. I came to Tom with a picture of something and Tom looked at it and said, ‘That’s awesome! I want to fall off of that!’ It’s like, OK, I can see it on a poster, and I can see Tom falling off of it.”
So you can expect Tom Cruise to take an impressive fall off something. McQuarrie then says that one of the other big differences in the film is that it won't start off with a big elaborate action scene:
“It starts in a very unconventional way. It does not start with action. That was the hardest pitch of this movie.”
I'm a big fan of the Mission: Impossible franchise, and I was happy to hear that McQuarrie and Cruise would be teaming up for another Ethan Hunt adventure. I like what his focus will be.
Mission: Impossible 6 starts production in April and will hit theaters on July 27, 2018.
MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 6 Will Take Ethan Hunt on an Emotional Journey and Focus on Who He Is
DC Comics has got an interesting and fun crossover event taking place that features classic Looney Tunes characters entering the DC Universe. The only thing we know about the crossover event is from what we see in the four pieces of art that were released. The press release only came with the following details:
Jonah Hex. Yosemite Sam.
Martian Manhunter. Marvin the Martian.
Lobo. The Road Runner.
Batman. Elmer Fudd.
It looks to me like some of the Looney Tunes characters are declaring war on DC while other are joining forces. I wish I had more details on what this quartet of "DC/Looney Tunes Specials" entaIls, but this is all I have for now.

Lionsgate has released a new trailer and TV spot for the new Power Rangers movie and I think the trailer gives us our most exciting look yet at the film. These two trailers focus more on the fun aspects of the film and with that come some cool new action-packed footage of the Rangers in action and Rita Repulsa conjuring Goldar a causing havoc.
I've had a hard time warming up to this film, but I actually kinda liked what I saw in these latest trailers. I just hope that all of this cool action doesn't take place in the last fifteen minutes of the movie.
Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late.
The cast includes Dacre Montgomery as Jason the Red Ranger, RJ Cyler as Billy the Blue Ranger, Naomi Scott as Kimberly the Pink Ranger, Becky G as Trini the Yellow Ranger, Ludi Lin as Zack the Black Ranger, with Bill Hader voicing Alpha 5, Bryan Cranston as Zordon, and Elizabeth Banks as villain Rita Repulsa.
The movie was directed by Dean Israelite (Project Almanac) and it's set to be released on March 24, 2017.

As a company, IMAX is all about creating a singular experience you can't get anywhere else. They've done that with movies using massive screens, epic sound, and crystal clear image quality, but now they're branching out into virtual reality and they're looking to bring that same experience-driven mindset to a newer medium. Earlier this week, IMAX invited me and some other press members to the company's already-operational flagship VR Centre in Los Angeles for a presentation of their plans and to let us play some games and experience some VR for ourselves. Read on to find out how it all went down.
The L.A. Centre is already open, but IMAX has announced that they'll be opening centers in New York, California, and Shanghai over the next few months during what they're calling the "pilot phase." Essentially everything they're doing in relation to VR right now is going to be tweaked until they find the perfect mixture that works for them — that goes for locations, content, hardware, pricing of the experiences, and more. They're aware they don't know everything about VR yet, but they're willing to try a lot of different methods of doing things until they get it right.
The L.A. location is inside what used to be an old hat factory that's located right across from a busy outdoor mall called The Grove. The interior was designed by some of the same people who worked on Apple and Tesla stores, and this also has a sleek, futuristic look that fits well with the tech they're looking to introduce people to. When you walk in the front door, you step into a lobby filled with digital posters for VR experiences you can play (similar to how you see movie posters in a theater lobby). There's also a big board displaying the games/experiences and times that are available that day; the company says they're experimenting with the pricing, but for right now, it's between $7 and $10 per 9-12 minute experience.
Once you have your tickets, you're taken to the main part of the Centre, which consists of 14 pods. That's where you actually enter the VR worlds of the games/experiences, and each one is manned by an employee who walks you through the process and suits you up with the hardware (which currently includes HTC Vive and Starbreeze's 5K display StarVR headsets, various controllers, and haptic backpacks that pulse for added effect). Even though the pods are isolated by nature — only one person can play at a time — they're designed to be a social space with sitting areas nearby and screens that broadcast what the player is seeing so friends can watch (and make fun of their friend who inevitably looks a little goofy doing a VR activity). Right now, the whole thing still feels a little too isolated for me to ever want to gather a big group of friends and check it out, but there is one multiplayer game available and the new Star Trek Bridge Crew VR is arriving soon, so once they get more multiplayer games/experience in there, it'd be much easier to justify going with a group; then you'd basically be guaranteed to at least play together instead of being stuck on the sidelines waiting as each person goes one at a time.
Let's talk briefly about the games/experiences themselves. First up, I played Knockout League, a boxing game that's extremely reminiscent of Wii boxing. The key difference, of course, is that you're not locked into a flat, 2D experience — you can physically dodge around your cartoonish, Mr. T-looking opponent in the ring, getting close in for jabs and upper cuts. Like the Wii game, it's physically exhausting but fun.
I then moved over to Star Wars: Trials on Tatooine, which starts with a cool cut scene where you're sort of standing around watching as the Millennium Falcon flies in, lands on top of you, and fights off a couple of TIE Fighters. The real fun starts when you actually get to control a lightsaber, and I won't spoil what you're able to do with it, but it's pretty damn immersive.
Next I checked out The Walk, based on Robert Zemeckis' movie about Philippe Petit's legendary walk between the Twin Towers. This was the most realistic experience by far, with incredible visuals that, no joke, really make you feel as if you're actually on the wire between the buildings. The haptic backpack pulses as the "wind" blows you around out there on the line, and the whole experience is nuts. There's a slightly raised cord that's embedded in the floor for you to walk on, so you have the physical sensation of having to balance on that as you walk, which adds a lot to the overall feel. The downside: you can only walk a few feet out across the virtual chasm since you're limited by the amount of physical space that's in the pod. I wish there was a way to actually cross between the two buildings and get the full rush of what that must have felt like for Petit.
Then I got into action mode and tried out Archangel, a new game from Ubisoft and Skydance Productions that is coming out this summer. In it, you pilot a 60-foot mech through a robot-infested city, battling flying bots and tanks as you travel through the urban sprawl with your team members. But the real standout was John Wick Chronicles, in which you carry a retrofitted gun controller and shoot your way through wave after wave of virtual bad guys who attack your character on a downtown rooftop. (I ended up with the high score for the day in that game.) You have to take cover behind ledges and potted plants, and can blind fire by raising your gun above those obstacles and shooting at your enemies. It's what a classic arcade game like Time Crisis would feel like if you were actually inside it. [Note: I did feel a little nauseated afterwards, but that may have been because I'd been doing VR stuff for multiple hours in a row at that point.]
The L.A. location is a standalone VR-specific centre, which I understand will be something of a rarity for the company. All of the other locations they're opening this year will be inside pre-existing multiplexes — either inside a gutted out auditorium, or as a part of the lobby if the building is big enough. IMAX's idea is that in addition to their premium content they currently have available, they'll be able to offer exclusive VR engagements that are tied to big blockbuster movies, and to be able to combine the ticket costs into one price. One example they cited would be that if you want to go see the latest Transformers movie, you might pay an additional $10, and after the movie is over you'd be ushered in to play the VR game where you're transformed into an Autobot. There's definitely potential for some cool tie-ins with a set-up like that. In the meantime, I'd recommend checking out the L.A. Centre if you're looking to see some of the best of what VR has to offer right now, and definitely keep it on your radar in the future as IMAX continues to add new experiences there over the coming months and years.
The L.A. IMAX VR Centre is located at 157 South Fairfax. Visit the official site for more information.

Last week news broke that Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves was in talks to replace Ben Affleck as the director of The Batman. It was expected that he would take the gig but in the end, he opted to drop out of the running.
The new comes from Variety, but there are no reasons given as to why he decided to not pursue it. The report just says that "talks have broken down" between the director and the studio and "negotiations have stopped".
That's kind of a shame because I think he would have actually been a great fit for the film. Obviously, he didn't feel the same way. According to an inside source, WB is still intent on making the film by "whatever means necessary."
I assume that Reeves' vision of the film and WB's vision just didn't align. So, the studio is continuing its hunt for a director! Who knows, maybe someone better will come along. I just hope that in the end, they don't settle for someone with mediocre filmmaking skills.
Who do you think would be a solid director for The Batman? I'd personally like to Mad Max director George Miller do take it on.
