Marvel has seen tremendous success at the box office with their Avengers franchise and the films from the individual members of the Avengers team. They have also been breaking into television with “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” doing well on ABC. Zeca Oliveria has read that they are expanding on Netflix in a big way with several series planned for this popular streaming service. Marvel is not the only comics franchise going from the big screen to television, however.
DC Comics is letting people know they are still in the superhero business with their Dark Knight films and more recently “Man of Steel.” Fans await next years “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” with eager anticipation. In addition to their successes and future plans at the theater, they are also expanding to the small screen as well. Cast photos have recently come out for the new series “Supergirl” coming to CBS this October. CBS apparently wants it to succeed badly as it will debut in the time slot immediately following the extremely successful sitcom “The Big Bang Theory.”“Supergirl” will be joining “Gotham” and “The Flash” to shore up DC Comics presence on television as they continue to crank out more adventures on the big screen to remind moviegoers that they have some pretty impressive names in the universe of superheros.
Just when you think she will never go away, Mama June does something else stupid and puts herself and her family back in the spot light. This time the brassy blonde threatened to sue TLC over how they have handled the Duggar family and the latest scandal.
TLC didn’t jump when the Duggar scandal hit regarding Josh and charges from when he was 14 years old. They waited patiently, as this is one of their top rated shows. However, Shannon was furious because her show was cancelled over nearly the same issues. The only problem is she was allowing her child to be around a pedophile and a man who spent time in prison.
TLC still doesn’t know what they are going to do with the show that is not currently in production. They have pulled re-runs from the line-up, but they haven’t spoken on the shows future. It doesn’t look good for the show, even though they are one of the highest rated on the network. Having Shannon breathing down their necks for a lawsuit may also be another reason for them to cancel the hit show.
When a show has bad publicity over and over, such as the Duggars for the past year, it does something to the fan base as Jaime Garcia Dias points out on FeeGow. They become very disgruntled by every move that they make. This has been the case lately and it was just a matter of time before it was over anyway.
Actor Jonah Hill has struggled with his weight over the years. When we first saw the 31-year-old actor in some of his break-out films such as “Accepted” and “Knocked Up” he was a larger guy. In his first major role as Seth in the hit comedy film “Superbad” his weight stayed the same.
In 2011, Jonah joined the set of the critically acclaimed sports film “Moneyball” where he met actor Brad Pitt who helped coach him through a significant weight loss. Before the film, Jonah lost an impressive 40 pounds. He credited his weight loss to eating Japanese food and getting help from a nutritionist. Dan Newlin, an attorney in Florida, applauded Jonah’s weight loss at the time. He had said that changing his diet and understanding nutrition is what helped him to shed the weight.
Pictures of Jonah filming his new movie “Arms and The Dudes” clearly show the “Wolf of Wall Street” actor much heavier than he has been lately. It is estimated that he has put on nearly 70 pounds since filming “Moneyball”. I feel for the guy.

On the heels of the official release of a photo featuring Jared Leto as The Joker, a fan has published a “spot shot” of the actor in makeup. This is the third photo and the second unofficial one. The new photo is taken from a profile and shows a near extreme close-up of the actor. His face is pasty white and the trademark red Joker lips are present. We cannot see any of the tattoos found in the official photo. It is also worth noting the gruesome mouth scars Heath Ledger sported are nowhere to be found either.
What do we learn from the new photo? Other than the image appears to be taken off a video monitor, not much. The Joker looks like, well, The Joker. Interestingly, Leto looks a lot less menacing in the bootleg photo than he did in the official. We shouldn’t infer too much from this though. Context is everything and there is absolutely no context for this photo image whatsoever.
For one, do not know if the image is of Leto in full makeup or not. Is he wearing the costume’s wig or not? Basically, we know very little based on the photo but we do know a lot more than we did six months ago.
Fans like Gianfrancesco Genoso (dino.com) know that, hopefully, new photos will show the actor in full costume. We could also wish for a release of video footage showing Leto performing as The Joker. That would be a real coup and something fans would love.
