Wesley Snipes still wants to play the role of Blade in the MCU. Snipes’ superhero career launched in 1998, when he played a heavily-adapted Daywalker for New Line’s Blade. The film was a remarkable success, grossing $131.2 million against a budget of only $45 million.
Blade launched a successful film franchise, which sadly came to an end with 2004’s Blade: Trinity. Where the first two films were critical and commercial successes, the third was seen as a huge disappointment by most. Snipes was reportedly difficult to work with, and wound up suing New Line Cinema and director David S. Goyer. Snipes dropped out of the role, and was replaced by Kirk “Sticky Fingaz” ...

With Dragon Ball Z, Akira Toriyama took things in a crazy new direction. Aliens from all corners of the galaxy were introduced, bringing chaos to Earth and the Z-fighters. Even Dragon Ball had its fair share of crazy species, featuring demons, androids and Namekians. The franchise as a whole is filled to the brim with all kinds of crazy extraterrestrial, superhuman, and artificially created species. Even Dragon Ball Super has started to introduce some insanely powerful creatures from different universes, including alternate versions of the Saiyans. The real question is: which of these many species is the strongest of them all? The answer might actually surprise you.

Star Wars fans who want a slightly more visceral battle between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader are in for a treat thanks to a new fan video. The Obi-Wan versus Vader fight in A New Hope is one of the most powerful and heartbreaking moments of the 1977 science fiction classic, as the elder Jedi Master comes up against former pupil and Sith Lord Darth Vader aboard the Death Star.
The fight itself packs a thematic punch. It helped form Darth Vader’s place as one of the greatest screen villains of all time, as well as giving Skywalker himself the groundwork and drive to become what some have described as the most powerful Jedi ever. However, the fight has its detractors, particularly when it comes to the excitement of the fight itself.
Thankfully, those ...

Blade Runner 2049 visual effects company Rodeo FX has released a new VFX reel showcasing their achievements on Denis Villeneuve’s acclaimed film. The long-awaited Blade Runner sequel was certainly a commercial disappointment – but it was a big success with critics, it could be a major awards contender, and there’s no doubt that the effects are stunning. Much of the film’s vibrant visuals came from Roger Deakins’ award-worthy cinematography, while many of the VFX that ended up on screen were practical with minimal use of CGI or green screen.
Villeneuve worked with frequent collaborator Rodeo FX, which also worked with the director on 2016’s Oscar-winning Arrival, to bring Blade Runner 2049’s visuals to life. Rodeo provides a wide range of services, which includes CGI, compositing, and matte paintings. Their work shines through in the Blade Runner sequel, and it becomes more impressive when you ...

Vincent D’Onofiro’s Kingpin in “evolving” in season 3 of Netflix’s flagship Marvel Comics series Daredevil. The actor and character earned praise during the Man Without Fear’s inaugural season, much of it focusing on the strength of D’Onofrio’s performance and how Wilson Fisk had become one of the few live-action Marvel villains to have an engaging story that ran parallel to and eventually intersected with the hero’s. And though he spent season 2 confined to his prison cell, and sat out The Defenders entirely (because hanging with ninjas and hunting dragon bones just isn’t his thing, apparently) Kingpin is expected to make a return to Hell’s Kitchen ...
