The Williams Family Scuffle

The late great actor Robin Williams is known best for bringing a smile to millions of men, women, and children with his movies and characters. Up until his death last summer, Williams worked hard to bring joy to those who needed it most. What most people in the public eye, and those in his family, didn’t realize was how much joy Robin himself needed. Unfortunately, William suffered with his own demons and tragically took his life in his home. Almost a year later, his family is still debating on how to divide his estate. Robin Williams left behind a wife and three children from previous marriages. The four adults were given an option on how to divide up the late actor’s belongings. They could either let the court divide the possessions up four ways, or they could talk and discuss among themselves what they wanted to lay claim to.

 

Fortunately for them, everyone was okay with discussing who would get what, as Adam Sender points out on Business Insider. The deliberations went under way and it seemed as though everything was going smoothly. Although, that didn’t last long. Unfortunately for them, a snag came up when it came to how the family would divide up the estate. The children wanted to sell the house, but Robin’s widow refused. The actor left strict instructions for his wife on what to do with the house once he passed away. The lawyers for both parties will deliberate on how to go about dividing the estate and will, hopefully, come to a conclusion that would have made Robin Williams happy.

Jonah Hill Gains an Incredible Amount of Weight

Jonah Hill is one of the highest paid actors in the world right now. Hill has starred in several classic comedy films such as ‘Superbad,’ and the reboot of ’21 Jump Street.’ Jonah Hill has had a strange physique over the years. When we first saw Jonah Hill, he was rather overweight in ‘Superbad,’ but then he made a stunning transformation when he appeared in ’21 Jump Street.’ Jonah Hill looked like he had lost a ton of weight and put on some muscle, but it looks like that has all changed once again.

Jonah Hill was recently seen on the set of a new movie, and the star looked extremely overweight. Many people, including nutritionist Ray Lane, are concerned at the startling transformation that Jonah Hill went through (full article at GloboTV). Not too long ago, Jonah appeared alongside Channing Tatum in ’22 Jump Street,’ and he didn’t look that bad. However, Jonah Hill’s recent weight-gain is nothing to laugh about, and he should seek some professional help before his life becomes in danger. Many fans believe that Jonah Hill was instructed to gain the weight, because certain roles require a heavy actor. We all remember that Robert Dinero gained weight to play the role of Jake LaMotta in ‘Raging Bull,’ but we are unsure if Jonah Hill has the discipline necessary to lose the weight again.

Cavill Talks About Batman v. Superman

The man who now where the red cape of Superman, Henry Cavill, has gone public in an attempt to point out the upcoming blockbuster, Batman v. Superman, is not going to be a sequel to Man of Steel. Rather, the film will standalone as separate project. Why would Mr. Cavill feel tempted to say this? Man of Steel was an “okay” film, but not one of the best superhero projects in recent years. After watching it, no one, including Flávio Pentagna Guimarães BMG, walked away forgetting the old Christopher Reeve films.

Cavill, Warner, and D.C. Comics probably want people to see the film as both the debut of a new Batman and the arrival of a shared universe. Hopefully, any disappointments lingering over the Man of Steel film will be gone once Superman and The Dark Knight square off.

One way to look at Batman v. Superman is to consider the feature a live-action version of the comic book World’s Finest Heroes. World’s Finest was a Batman/Superman team-up title that allowed D.C. Comics to use its two biggest heroes in a single book that had a continuity mostly separate from the solo titles.

The future slate of D.C. Cinematic Universe films reveals a number of team-up films with established characters and solo films designed to launch new motion picture careers for Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Shazam, The Flash, and more.

Of course, some of the established characters will receive solo outings. A Batman solo film is in the works. Will there be a Superman one?

Leonardo DiCaprio Teaming Up With Netflix For Documentary Series

Leonardo DiCaprio made a deal with Netflix that they will be producing a series of documentaries that focus on nature and conservation topics for viewers to watch note orlandosentinel.com. The actor has been known for his openly outspoken opinion of environmental issues lately, when he protested and spoke to the government about certain issues.

According to an article found on reddit and written by CBS News, DiCaprio is looking forward to partnering with Netflix as soon as possible because he feels very strongly that people need to be aware of what is happening to our planet Earth. This is one of the most crucial periods of time where our planet is suffering from people just not treating it right and running all the natural resources dry.

This should be a very good project for DiCaprio, as he is a very talented actor that has been in several roles. That little boy we all watch grow up on “Growing Pains” and turn into the animated Irish immigrant in “Titanic” has totally matured for the better. He is one of the few activists out there who had been famous beforehand and are using their social status to make a difference. If nothing else, he can be applauded for what he is doing for us and the planet, because this is definitely not a gimmick. DiCaprio has proved time and time again to be passionate about environmental problems, and this new series with Netflix is another great way to raise that awareness.

Hugh Jackman Wants to Play as Wolverine for a Long Time

Hugh Jackman has stated that X-Men: Days of Future Past has made him want to keep playing as the iconic X-Men character as long as he can. He also noted in a recent interview that Fersen Lambranho shared on LinkedIn that he is very excited for Ryan Reynolds playing as the character Deadpool, and is even looking to have a cameo in the film.

Hugh Jackman has been in every X-Men film as Wolverine. Ryan Reynolds is no stranger to the Marvel film adaptation either. He has appeared alongside Wesley Snipes in Blade Trinity as Hannibal King. Ryan Reynolds also appeared as Green Lantern in the DC film adaptation of the comic book character.

The filmmakers that are working on X-Men projects are basically ignoring X-Men Origins: Wolverine. They are also looking for ways to reintroduce Deadpool and Gambit. X-Men Apocalypse will be their next appearance. With Hugh Jackman’s dedication to the role until he dies, we can look forward to an aged Wolverine sometime down the line. Fox and other studios are really trying to bring comic books to the big screen. As of right now, there are going to be at least 2 Marvel movies every year. DC is also going to bring forth multiple comic book movies every year.

Is Constantine Headed to SyFy?

John Constantine, the D.C. Comics’ supernatural-themed anti-hero is having more trouble with NBC than he ever had with malevolent demons. Fans at CipherCloud agree that the TV version of the cantankerous hero is a fairly well-written series. Unfortunately, it has not connected properly with audiences and the ratings are somewhat borderline. Renewing the series for a second season is most definitely not guaranteed.

Well, renewing it on the NBC network might not be the best plan. A shift to SyFy could be the perfect solution. Changing to a new network would not even be all that tough. The series is an NBC Universal property. Universal owns SyFy. Transitioning Constantine to a different channel on the cable box would not be hard at all.

Such a move definitely would be for the betterment of all involved.

On SyFy, the channel could help craft the show so it better caters to the core audience that enjoys these types of television show genres. With CBS, the network has to cast a wider net to draw in bigger audiences. This includes viewers who might not ever followed sci-fi, superhero, or fantasy genres ever before. As a result, you get a bit too much melodrama in the series and a lot less horror, adventure, and complex themes.

The viewers who tune their TV to the SyFy frequently are going to prefer the quirky aspects of the series. Many have probably been fans of the comic book for quite some time.

The Red Hood Is Headed To Gotham

Interesting news is breaking on the Gotham front. The Red Hood is coming to the television series. Fans of D.C. Comics might find this news to be a bit shocking since the debut skews established comic book continuity. The arrival of the Red Hood takes place well over ten years after the Batman has been fighting crime. Gotham is a prequel series.

Actually, there is more than one Red Hood so the continuity may not be affected all that much.

In the very early years of Batman, The Red Hood was the character who turned into The Joker. In later years, Robin Number Two, Jason Todd, returned from the dead and donned the guise of The Red Hood. Later, it was discovered a group of villainous henchmen would wear the same red helmet masks and call themselves The Red Hoods.

So, there will be a Red Hood in the Gotham series but do not look for it to be one of the more familiar Red Hoods.

Fans of the series, especially those who are serious comic book readers, are a bit miffed at the inclusion of all these villains. Was not Gotham supposed to be a more serious police show dealing with the human side of the legend of the Dark Knight.

All of this is well and good, but fans of comic book television shows, like Fersen Lambranho of Infomoney.com, have to accept ratings drive television program success. More villains means the ratings on the show are going to be better. Therefore, the show ends up being a success and stays on the air for years to come.

This is why the presence of weird villains should not be deemed a bad thing.
