  • Since the photographs of Charlottesville, we’ve seen many of the torch-wielders identified, fired, and more. The father of one of the white nationalists photographed at Charlottesville has publicly denounced his son, and says on behalf of his family, “We do not, never have, and never will, accept his twisted worldview.”(via Daily Dot)
  • Mewtwo has arrived on Pokemon GO. (via Polygon)

Things We Saw Today: Here’s the First Reveal of Josh Brolin as Cable in Deadpool 2

Deadpool 2 star Ryan Reynolds continues his newfound tradition of Tweeting out first looks at the upcoming movie’s cast. We gotta say, Josh Brolin seems to be rocking it.

While Reynolds gave us a teasing shot—complete with snarky hashtag #PremiumCABLE—Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld jumped in on the fun and helped settle speculation about whether Brolin’s Cable would be sporting Liefeld’s notorious, trademark pouches. For those of you just joining us, Cable is a highly gifted mutant with psychic powers, primarily telepathy and telekinesis, whose body was overtaken by a techno-organic virus that rendered him a cyborg. Liefeld Tweeted out a more detailed image of Cable in costume:

What do you think? Enough pouches? (via Bookmoviesdeath)

Things We Saw Today: Kevin Conroy Does Christian Bale’s Dark Knight Speech, Blows All Our Minds

On Nerdist’s Talking Toons, Kevin Conroy and voice acting legend Rob Paulsen recreated the iconic final speech from The Dark Knight. You can watch that here, but even cooler IMO is the above video with that audio cut into the actual movie’s footage, courtesy of YouTuber Josh Gaming.

Kevin Conroy’s voice coming out of Christian Bale’s face is the hero we need AND deserve.

This Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 blooper reel is a whole lot of fun. (via EW)

Speaking of GG Vol. 2, James Gunn shares what role he was courting David Bowie to play. (i09)

Things We Saw Today: Lupita Nyongo’s SECOND Undercover Cosplay Day at Comic-Con!

Lupita Nyong’o already charmed the entire internet with her Pink Ranger disguise at the 2017 San Diego Comic-Con, and now it turns out that she also dressed up as Kylo Ren! This video is just as delightful, joyful and funny as the first, with Nyong’o dancing, posing, and fangirling across the con. She even managed to fool artist Sanford Greene, when she had him draw her a Black Panther commission. “It turns out I am a part of a viral video with the talented [] Lupita [] Nyongo and had NO idea!” tweeted Greene. “But did wonder why she kept fixing her mask!”

  • There’s a fascinating piece on Charlize Theron’s career, and how she subverted the industry’s expectations for her, over at Buzzfeed. The period in her career post-Monster, when “the vamp had aged; shed the cool, chill elements of her initial image; and transformed into a bitch,” was particularly illuminating.
  • It’s Gail Simone’s birthday today!
  • We’ve already been teased with a potential Peggy Carter appearance in Infinity War. But actress Hayley Atwell is also down for a cameo in Captain Marvel – which, since it’s set in the ’90s, definitely takes place during Peggy Carter’s lifetime. Give us that female mentorship moment, Marvel! (via Nerdist)
  • Polygon spoke to Rick and Morty co-creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland about the long delays in producing the third season, and about their views of infinity, creation, and meaning in the show.
  • Middle-Earth: Shadow of War, the follow-up game to Shadow of Mordor, will feature the first non-white hero in the Lord of the Rings universe. (via ScreenRant)

Eleven Claws Her Way Back to the World in Stranger Things Season 2 Trailer

The second season of Stranger Things will premiere on Netflix on Halloween of 2017, and so it’s fitting that the Comic-Con trailer kept things creepy. With Vincent Price’s opening monologue from Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and plenty of Upside Down, flashlights-in-the-woods, and crumbling-suburbia footage, this trailer shows that Hawkins, Indiana is in for more of a fright.

Most importantly, it also shows the return of Eleven, who claws her way through the wall between the Upside Down and our world. Yay!

Aside from Eleven, the boys look like they’re having a rough time of it, too. Mike is still hunting for Eleven, saying, “Sometimes I feel like I still see her.” Will keeps having hallucinations and hop-backs to the Upside Down: one minute he’s in the arcade with his friends, the next he’s in the crumbling, deadly other world. His visions are driving him to stare into space, frantically draw the monster that’s coming, and warn his mother that the creature wants, “Not me. Everyone else.”

Plus, it looks like the boys catch a monster in their Ghostbusters ghostcatcher. What might emerge when they open it?

Aesthetically, this looks very similar to the first season, and it seems like a strong escalation of the original conflict with the Upside Down. I appreciate that it doesn’t look too much slicker, and I like that so much of the story seems to focus on the “What’s going on?” elements that made the first season feel so true to small-town life. Based on the size of the monster Will sees, they’re undeniably upping the stakes for the world-at-large – but I’m still optimistic that it won’t mean losing our focus on the citizens of Hawkins.

Then again, as the trailer warns, “Nothing’s gonna go back to the way it was.”

Things We Saw Today: Princeless Has Been Optioned for A Movie!

Sony has optioned movie rights to Princeless, the adorable, empowering, and Eisner-nominated comic from Jeremy Whitley, Mia Goodwin, and Emily Martin about a young black princess who saves herself. The movie script will be written by Stefani Robinson, who’s previously written for both Atlanta and the FX/Marvel animated Deadpool series, so I’m not sure whether Sony’s currently thinking an animated film or a live-action one – but either way, I so hope that young girls get to see this movie soon! (via Deadline)
