The next Marvel movie is Black Widow, a trip into the past to explore Natasha’s spy life in Russia. Black Widow comes out on May 1 and we haven’t seen too much news…until Marvel decided to randomly and awesomely release the first trailer! And it’s a trailer packed with stuff!
Looks awesome! David Harbour obviously steals the show as Red Guardian. But we’ve got a good look at Taskmaster! And the other Black Widow. And our main Black Widow looks great in a white costume!
Word has it this takes place shortly after Captain America: Civil War, which sounds good to me! What an exciting surprise this trailer was today!
It’s that time of year! When Joker comes out on DVD and the internet is awash with Joker content to capitalize on the SEO! I’m no internet expert, nor was I particularly a fan of Joker, but I’m all about sharing some quality-made internet comedy.
Like How Joker Should Have Ended!
Once again, the HISHE people focus more on their own running gags than on an actual alternate ending to Joker…but this one was still funny. Solid comedy all-around, including the attention to detail of an all-80s Villains Pub.
Then we’ve also got the Tell It Animated guy doing the Joker!
He’s also doing a ton of ads, apparently. But hey, I’m no fool. You make that money, friend! You turn your awesome idea into a moneymaker! You make it happen!
And do Iron Man next. Or James Bond.
Just what the world needs, another movie podcast! But in all seriousness, I’m here to announce to all of you henchies that I am now doing a weekly (I think) movie podcast where I review the latest movies, along with other general pop culture news and features. I’m doing this as part of my day job as a newpaper reporter. I’ve been doing movie reviews for the paper for the past year and a half, and they’re looking to expand their brand into other avenues, including podcasting.
So I want to welcome you to the first episode of Sentinel Cinema with Sean Ian Mills!
The first episode is my take on Terminator: Dark Fate.
I haven’t been sharing my movie reviews on this blog because they come out later than I would like. Such is fitting my reviews into my newspaper’s schedule. But I have no problem sharing these podcasts if anybody would care to give a listen. I think I do alright. It’s not about to break the internet or revolutionize podcasting or anything like that. I’m not going to get to sit down with Tom Cruise or anyone like that. It’s just going to be a fun little thing I do as part of my day job.
Honestly, I could have gotten into podcasting through Henchman-4-Hire a long time ago…but College Humor summed up my thoughts on podcasts a couple years ago.
Still, don’t let that discourage you and feel free to give my podcast a listen! I think it’ll be weekly, with new movie reviews, so there’s that!
The world came together in one voice this summer, declaring that the Sonic the Hedgehog movie design was hideous and everything wrong with the world. Welp, the movie studio went back to the drawing board and have returned a redesigned hedgehog that looks more like the video game.
The design is better. The movie still looks really dumb.
Someday I hope we get the Citizen Kane of cartoon animal meets real people movies. This looks like the next installment of the Chipmunk movies. But God help me, I’m probably still gonna see it.
Sonic the Hedgehog comes out on Feb. 14.
I have been trying to keep up with casting news for the new Batman movie coming out in a couple of years. I’ve liked most of it, like Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman and Robert Pattinson as Batman. But casting news has been coming so fast and loose that I’ve fallen way behind. We’ve got Jeffrey Wright confirmed as Commissioner Gordon. Andy Serkis as Alfred. And rumors of Colin Farrell as Penguin and Aaron Eckhart as Two-Face! It’s madness!
The newest news is actor Jayme Lawson in an unnamed role.
Apparently she’s a brand new college grad and this is her first Hollywood role. That’s some pretty solid career advancement already. Good for her!
Second, what role does she have? Everybody is guessing it’s Barbara Gordon, considering we’ve now got a black Commissioner Gordon. Makes sense. It also makes sense in that the film might be really coy with Batman’s allies. It can have all the villains it wants, but Batman having allies and sidekicks makes for an entirely different movie, so they might want to keep Batgirl news secret. Of course, she could just be Barbara and not yet Batgirl.
All of this is to say we might not know Dick Grayson has been cast when he’s cast! I want Robin news!
