Who Should Play the "Forgotten" Hero?
If Aquaman is the one member of the Justice League that late night talk show hosts and sketch comics like to pick on for having "useless" powers like breathing underwater and communicating with marine life, Martian Manhunter is the one that nobody picks on...or even mentions...ever. The "forgotten" member of the Justice League, Martian Manhunter has been a member of the super-team since they first gathered together in the pages of The Brave and the Bold #28 (Feb./Mar. 1960) and is actually the most powerful of them all, possessing all of Superman's abilities, plus telepathy, invisibility, phasing and shape-shifting.
Martian Manhunter has received wider recognition in recent years thanks to appearances in various animated series, video games, and in the Smallville: Absolute Justice TV movie (played by Phil Morris), but he is still the only member of the Justice League that does not have a live-action movie in development at Warner Bros. If Martian Manhunter does appear on the big screen, chances are it will be as part of the ensemble Justice League movie, which will definitely need an actor of color — when not battling global threats, Martian Manhunter frequently operates in disguise as an African-American police detective named John Jones — to lend some diversity to its roster of superheroes. Join us in our hunt to find the right man to play the Martian Manhunter.

For The Expendables 2, only a lone female was added to the (previously) all-male group of new and returning action stars — Chinese actress Yu Nan. But with The Expendables 2 taking the top slot at last weekend's box office, it seems only a matter of time before The Expendables 3 becomes an inevitability. Hollywood Dailies caught up with the cast to see which actresses they feel could make it as a mercenary in the Expendables crew. who might be in Expendables 3? >> Posted 08.23.12 by Ryan
As Dolph Lundgren revealed to us earlier this week, there was only one way to go for the upcoming sequel The Expendables 2 and that's "bigger." Terry Crews and Randy Couture, reprising their roles from 2010's The Expendables, couldn't agree more.
"I think from start to finish, this movie [has] way more action," Couture told Hollywood Dailies. "You know, when I read the script, I'm like: 'How in the heck are we going to do that? I mean, it's impossible!' But we pull it off."
Outside of the returning Couture, Crews, Lundgren, Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham and Jet Li, Liam Hemsworth and Yu Nan join the crew with assistance from Chuck Norris, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis. The ending sequence pits almost the entire Expendables 2 cast against villain Jean-Claude Van Damme, and both Couture and Crews said that it wasn't lost on the cast that there were so many action stars in one room.
"You look at all these characters...you might not get this again," said Crews. "So we gotta do it right." more about The Expendables 2 >> Posted 08.17.12 by Ryan
If being yelled at by Terry Crews in the introduction doesn't get your attention, the numerous explosions that follow in The Expendables 2 teaser trailer should do the trick.
Sylvester Stallone passes the director's cap to Simon West (Con Air) in this testosterone-fueled sequel to The Expendables, which finds the team — Barney Ross (Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), Toll Road (Randy Couture), Hale Caesar (Terry Crews), and new recruits Bill "The Kid" Timmons (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) — out for revenge after the seemingly simple job they are contracted to perform by Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) results in the death of one of their own. Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme also star. watch the new teaser trailer >> Posted 05.02.12 by BrentJS
Last August, writer-director-actor Sylvester Stallone stuffed enough current and former action stars into The Expendables to win audiences over and earn $274 million worldwide. Stallone instantly started talking about a sequel, using his Twitter to declare he wanted Bruce Willis back as a "supervillain" in the movie.
While we're not entirely sure of his intentions, Willis is back for The Expendables 2, along with fellow Expendables scene partner Arnold Schwarzenegger, with both actors having a more "substantial" role in the sequel, which has an even more expanded cast than the original. Strangely, details on the sequel have been scarce — a plot synopsis was revealed in May and involved the Expendables avenging the death of Mickey Rourke's character Tool, but was quickly dismissed. Fortunately, along with the teaser trailer comes a synopsis as well.

The Expendables are back and this time it's personal... Barney Ross (Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) — with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard — are reunited when Mr. Church (Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time — six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that's nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother. That is done the Expendables way.
The first set photo that arrived online from the Bulgarian set of The Expendables 2 was Tweeted by Arnold Schwarzenegger and depicted the former California governor with co-stars Bruce Willis and Sylvester Stallone. With Schwarzenegger moving on to the production of Last Stand, the rest of the group are still hard at work, as evidenced by the recent crop of set photos that have arrived online.
The latest set pics reveal Stallone along with Expendables members Terry Crews, Randy Couture, and Dolph Lundgren, as well as newcomers Jean-Claude Van Damme and Chuck Norris. Missing from the photos are Jason Statham, Jet Li, and Mickey Rourke. But there's an easy reason why Rourke is absent: He isn't going to be in the movie. see the reason Rourke gave and more photos >> Posted 11.10.11 by Ryan
A trailer for The Expendables briefly appeared online. In it, Sylvester Stallone teams up with a set of action movie all-stars, including Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke, Jet Li, Steve Austin, ,Terry Crews, and Randy Couture, as they head out to overthrow a South American dictator. It should be no surprise that Stallone is also directing the movie himself, from his own script.
Sadly, the cameos from Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis didn't make it into the trailer. Posted 10.14.09 by Ryan
The election is less than three weeks away and Americans must make their final decision.
While "Decision 2008" may be bringing about some firsts for the political establishment, it's got nothing on Hollywood.
