Ben Affleck releases a teaser video featuring "Deathstroke" possibly debuting for DC Films

In what is certainly a BIG SURPRISE and literally coming from LEFT FIELD, Ben Affleck, the Batman of the DCEU himself, took to his own official accounts that includes his Facebook page and released what appears to be test footage of the DC Extended Universe's own Deathstroke making his DC Films debut, and it could be for next year's Justice League!

Now it's possible that Affleck is just playing around and teasing, but this is just too good to be wasted, and we haven't seen a live-action Deathstroke since the character was featured as the primary villain for the second season of The CW's Arrow TV Series (where he was played by Manu Bennett). Time will tell what the official word is, and Ben Affleck is also directing his own Batman flick which doesn't have any details yet, and it could be a teaser for that - after all, Batman and Deathstroke have a long storied rivalry depicted in comics and different forms of media, including an intense fight in the video game Batman: Arkham Origins!

Justice League will be released on November 17, 2017.

Captain America: Civil War: Steve Rogers is no longer Captain America

The end of Captain America: Civil War went through many things, but one of the most important outcomes was the split of the Avengers following the final confrontation of Captain America/ Steve Rogers and Iron Man/ Tony Stark. After discovering that his parents were murdered in the past by a then brainwashed Winter Soldier/ Bucky Barnes, Iron Man went on full attack mode and was only bested on the end by Cap. With Stark calling Steve unworthy of wielding the shield thanks to his actions and defending his best friend, Rogers dropped his signature weapon and walked off with the injured Bucky to parts unknown... And that scene officially that meant that he was no longer Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe according to the Russo Brothers.

Doing a press tour for the upcoming Blu-Ray/ DVD release of the film, the Russo Brothers explained to The Huffington Post why that moment meant what it meant and why Steve Rogers left his superhero name behind:

"I think him dropping that shield is him letting go of that identity,” said Joe. “[It’s] him admitting that certainly,the identity of Captain America was in conflict with the very personal choice that he was making.”

 With plenty of deleted scenes (and yes even a gag reel) to look forward to, Captain America: Civil War hits digital on September 2 and on Blu-Ray/ DVD on September 13.

Happy Birthday Andrew Garfield, aka the former "The Amazing Spider-Man"!

The world already has a new Spider-Man for cinema with Tom Holland, who made his debut with this year's "Captain America: Civil War", but before the young man stepped to the plate and prior to Sony Pictures making a deal with Marvel to put the webhead in the MCU, there was Andrew Garfield... Who played Peter Parker/ Spider-Man in two films by Marc Webb in 2012 and 2014 respectively, and today is his birthday!

The Amazing Spider-Man 2: The First 10 Minutes

It's literally a shame that he could not wrap up his tenure as the wallcrawler properly after "The Amazing Spider-Man" and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2", but Garfield - who also starred in "The Social Network" has since moved on past his heroic identity to play other roles in film - including the upcoming Mel Gibson film "Hacksaw Ridge". He may not be Spidey anymore, but his time was fun nonetheless along with Emma Stone's Gwen Stacy! Happy Birthday, Andrew Garfield!

Happy 30th Anniversary, The Transformers: The Movie!

Today on August 8th, one of the most controversial yet brilliantly executed animated movies based on one of the most beloved toylines and cartoon series of all time came out... And that was "The Transfomers: The Movie". Directed by Nelson Shin and featuring an ensemble cast of voice talents that included Eric Idle, Judd Nelson, Orson Wells, and Leonard Nimoy, the film is set on the year 2005, and is a direct sequel to the animated "The Transformers" series that featured Optimus Prime and the heroic Autobots who continued their war against the evil Decepticons.

In the film, an evil and planet eating robot planet known as "Unicron" is relentlessly destroying planets in its path while slowly making his way towards Cybertron. This happens amidst a decisive confrontation between the Autobots and Decepticons, which leaves several casualties on both sides that includes Optimus Prime - the wise and iconic Autobot leader who falls after saving his comrades on Autobot City on Earth from the invasion of Megatron and his Decepticons. Before he dies, Prime passes on the ancient "Matrix of Leadership" to his comarade-in-arms Ultra Magnus, who leads a new cast of Autobots that includes the young and hotheaded Hot Rod, fast-talking Blur, old timer Kup, and the lady bot Arcee. These characters eventually cross paths with all kinds of danger, including a reformatted Megatron who now goes by the name "Galvatron" and serves his new master Unicron. The Matrix turns out to be the only thing capable of destroying Unicron - which eventually finds itself in the hands of the new Autobot leader that no one would have expected to rise up to the occasion.

Transformers The Movie 1986 Original Trailer

Until Optimus Prime eventually returned and more stuff happened in both North American and Japanese Transformers continuities that evolved the series anew.
