In another interview with Joss Whedon, the director talks about what makes Batgirl so interesting to him and the idea behind the story that he's obsessed with telling in his new film. He basically is looking to explore the reasons behind why a young girl like Barbara Gordon would turn to a hardcore life of fighting crime as Batgirl. He wants to show what her damage is. He explains to THR:
"She came up, and I started getting obsessed with how a young woman could get hardcore enough to need to put on the cowl. Like, What's her damage?"
He goes on to say:
"She didn't have her parents killed in an alley. Who is this person, who decides — rather than being forced to by their childhood trauma — decides to pick up this life How intense and driven that person is ... I just couldn't stop thinking about it."
I love the angle that he's looking to take with the character by exploring the motivation of her need to be Batgirl. It'll be interesting to see what Whedon actually does with the story of this character. As a long time fan of Whedon, I can't help but believe that he's going to give us something incredible.
Joss Whedon Says BATGIRL Will Explore the Damage That Makes Barbara Gordon So Hardcore
The true crime genre is very popular these days. Especially with the success of programs like HBO’s doc series The Jinx, Netflix’s Making a Murderer, and O.J.: Made in America, which one an Academy Award this year.
Netflix is hoping that they have another addictive doc series on their hands with The Keepers. We have the first trailer for you to watch today and it looks like a riveting story. The seven-part doc series centers on the unsolved mystery of the murder of a Nun and a conspiracy to cover up the truth behind it for the past fifty years by the corruption within the Catholic church.
I've been fascinated with true crime stories for years, so I like that these kinds of doc series are being made. This stuff just interests me.
Directed by Ryan White (Serena, The Case Against 8), The Keepers will have everyone asking the question “who killed Sister Cathy?” The series was produced by Film 45 and Tripod Media for Netflix. Along with White and Jessica Hargrave, Josh Braun, Ben Cotner, Jason Spingarn-Koff and Lisa Nishimura are executive producers.
Through interviews with dozens of friends, relatives, journalists, government officials and Baltimore citizens determined to uncover the truth, White pieces together a story that goes beyond the death of a beloved Catholic schoolteacher to encompass clergy abuse, repressed memories and government and religious institutions that he says “at best, dropped the ball over the last 45 years – and, at worst, covered it up.”
The Keepers will arrive on Netflix on May 19, 2017.

Early on in the process of developing the story for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, James Gunn was planning on using Adam Warlock as a major character but he ended up changing it up and taking him out, opting to include him in a future Marvel film like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 instead. So, for all of you who have been waiting for Adam Warlock to enter the MCU, he's coming!
The news comes from director James Gunn himself during an interview with /Film. He explains that Adam Warlock is one of his favorite characters and it sounds like he's just been waiting for the right story to play with him in. Gunn explains:
“I love Adam Warlock. He’s one of my favorite characters. In all truth, I wrote an early treatment where I had Adam Warlock as a part…this is your big scoop, because I don’t think I’ve told anybody this… It was Adam Warlock. He was a big part of the screenplay and I realized it was one character too many. And I adored the character. I adored what we had done with him. I think we did something really creative and unique with Adam Warlock. But it was one character too many and I didn’t want to lose Mantis and Mantis was more organically part of the movie anyway. So I decided to save him for later.”
In a separate interview with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, he told the site that Gunn is "developing Adam Warlock to be included in a future Marvel cosmic universe film." When this was brought up with Gunn, the director made sure that it was known that Warlock will not be in Infinity War saying:
“He’s not in Infinity War. But he will be a part of the future Marvel cosmic universe and a pretty important part of that.”
He doesn't come right out and say that Adam Warlock will be in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, but it's a very safe assumption that that's where the character is going to be introduced, especially since Gunn recently confirmed that he will be directing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. What other films could Gunn be developing the character for?
Feige then went on to tell the site, “If he appears anywhere in the future, it’ll be in Guardians.” So, there ya have it.
Adam Warlock Originally Had a Major Role in GUARDIANS VOL. 2 But He'll Be in GUARDIANS VOL. 3!

Retro Promo Spot For "Awesome Mix Vol. 2" From GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2
I've really enjoyed the trailers I've seen of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 so far, but trailers can be misleading. Just because something looks awesome with great music playing behind it, we all know that it doesn't mean it will be the best thing in the world. A lot of movies have great trailers that end up being utter crap films.
Today we have two new clips for Guardians Vol. 2 along with two new TV spots to share with you. They show some new footage from the film, and I quite enjoyed them. I won't give too much away because watching them really does more justice than me spouting off what they are about. Check out the two clips below and then I offer a brief commentary after.
Holy crap. Wasn't that funny? I lol'ed like literally. I'm beside myself with joy. Everything just fits together so well. First off, we get another longer look at the Rocket and baby Groot scene which is still funny every time I watch it, and then there's the other scene, which just really solidifies how great a chemistry this cast has together. It makes me wonder what is so special about those batteries Rocket stole that makes the Sovereign Fleet so angry. I love everyone in this scene. I cannot wait until this movie releases. Now check out the two TV spots below:
