Definitive William Shatner Documentary In The Works From Legion and Exhibit A Pictures

Definitive William Shatner Documentary In The Works From LegionToday Legion M and Exhibit A Pictures are announcing a new documentary directed by Alexandre O. Philippe, in which William Shatner takes off the countless masks he’s worn throughout his storied career, to reveal the man behind one of the most recognizable faces in the world.

In truly unique fashion, Legion M, the world’s first fan-owned entertainment company, is allowing fans to invest directly in the project. Unlike a Kickstarter or IndieGogo campaign, these investors are doing more than just providing the funds to produce the film — they also own a share of any potential profits the documentary earns. Investment terms have not been released yet, but beginning today fans can sign up to make a non-binding, no-obligation reservation HERE. Reservation holders will be the first to know when the offering opens, and will be given priority if it sells out.

The producers will be providing an early look at some of the footage on pop culture’s biggest stage later this month during a Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con featuring William Shatner and moderated by actor/director/comedian Kevin Smith (“Jay and Silent Bob” franchise, “Clerks” franchise).

At 91 years old, William Shatner is an iconic actor, artist, and astronaut(!) best known for his legendary role in “Star Trek” as Captain Kirk that spanned nearly 30 years across film and television, as well as the titular character in “T.J. Hooker” and the television series, “Boston Legal.”

Gaiman and Buckingham complete their Miracleman saga this October

Miracleman By Gaiman and BuckinghamAfter thirty years, Gaiman and Buckingham complete their Miracleman saga this October in Miracleman By Gaiman & Buckingham: The Silver Age. Just in time for the 40th anniversary of Miracleman’s modern era, Marvel Comics has announced that Neil Gaiman and Mark Buckingham’s groundbreaking Miracleman: The Silver Age Saga will return this October.

The two visionary comic talents will complete their unfinished Miracleman storyline “The Silver Age,” including remastered editions of the first two published issues, complete with new artwork and bonus material. The series will follow the previously announced Miracleman By Gaiman & Buckingham: The Silver Age Book 1: The Golden Age TPB, the new collection containing Gaiman and Buckingham’s first Miracleman series. After 30 years, fans will finally see the full incredible story of Young Miracleman with more to come.

Here, Young Miracleman — the lost member of the Miracleman Family is back. His last memories were of a 1963 world of joy and innocence. Now, he’s been thrust into the 21st century, where his best friends have become gods and monsters. Where can a hero from a simpler time call home in this brave new world?

“We’re back! And after thirty years away it is both thrilling and terrifying,” Buckingham said. “Neil and I have had these stories in our heads since 1989 so it is amazing to finally be on the verge of sharing them with our readers.
“I have pushed myself to my limit to craft something special for these issues. Cinematic in approach, clean and elegant, drawing on the best of my own style but also paying homage to the exceptional talents of all who came before us, whose unique visions have shaped this ground-breaking series over forty years, and the 1950’s Marvelman foundations on which it was built.”

Lady Gaga In Talks To Join Todd Phillips’ Joker Sequel

The sequel to 2019’s Joker, Joker: Folie à Deux will reportedly be a musical which will likely star the original film’s lead Joaquin Phoenix, and Lady Gaga is set to join him, according to THR.

Per story, Gaga would play DC’s Harley Quinn but a different incarnation than that played by Margot Robbie’s version from current DC Universe. And it will also be a musical.

Phillips and Gaga have worked together before in 2018’s A Star is Born, which starred Gaga along with Bradley Cooper, and which Philips served as a producer.

The original 2019 blockbuster was a huge hit for Phillips. That film grossed $1 billion at the boxoffice worldwide, received 12 nominations at the Oscars, one of which won by Phoenix for playing the iconic lead anti-hero.

More recently, Harley Quinn has been played by Margot Robbie three times, in 2016’s “Suicide Squad,” 2020’s “Birds of Prey” and 2021’s “The Suicide Squad.

Some questions that players might have about the game are answered in the comic, and vice versa, though neither are required to follow the story in the other.”

The Avengers, X-Men, And Eternals In The A.X.E: Judgment Day Trailer

THE AVENGERS XMEN AND ETERNALSKieron Gillen, Valerio Schiti, and Marte Gracia kick off the biggest Marvel event of the year on July 20

Here, the Avengers have become a more powerful global force than ever from their base inside a long-dead Celestial. The X-Men have achieved a form of immortality on their utopian island nation of Krakoa. And the Eternals have begun a new cycle of life as they continue their sworn mission to eliminate the Deviants.

But when the Eternals learn that mutantkind itself is a form of excess deviation, a vicious assault on Krakoa ensues – with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes trapped in the middle. Get your glimpse at the opening battles in the all-new A.X.E.: JUGDMENT DAY #1 trailer, featuring never-before-seen artwork.

“Honestly, for me, speaking as a reader as much as a writer, there’s nothing worse than an event that comes out of nowhere,” Gillen said in a recent interview with Popverse. “It had to come from the books. So yeah, I was looking at the Avengers, what Jason [Aaron] has built in the mythology there. I was looking at the X-Books, the secrets of Krakoa coming to light, and I was looking at what I was doing in Eternals, which dances with both of them, the various tensions in Eternal society there. And now, that’s stuff going to blow up. It’s just that kind of ‘Oh, look, these are three logical strains that are intersecting, let’s then bring them forth and see what happens with them.'”
