Michelle Maclaren to Direct Wonder Woman starring Gal Gadot

With DC Comics building their own Cinematic Universe, it has been announced that Game of Thrones‘ Michelle MacLaren will direct the forthcoming big screen adaptation of Wonder Woman, ending months of speculation.

Starring Gal Gadot, the eagerly awaited adaptation of the iconic supperhero will be developed by MacLaren alongside Producers Charles Roven, Zack Snyder, Debbie Snyder and Richard Suckle.

MacLaren’s previous works include the aforementioned Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad and The X-Files, and it is believed that the veteran director had taken several meetings with the studio earlier this month.

Little is known about the first solo outing for Diana aka Wonder Woman, but the film is expected in cinemas on June 23 2017, following Gadot’s debut as the character in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice on March 23 2016.

Movie Magic: Before And After Green Screen Photos

So, we all fake it from time to time, but did you really know to what extent your favorite movies have been fiddled with?

Believe it or not, most of the awesome structures and scenic layouts that we see in our favorite movies are actually put together using visual effects.

So many people aren’t aware that most of these films are shot in warehouses wrapped in different backdrops.

It certainly gives us a new appreciation for how hard the movie-makers work to make the scenes so seamlessly believable.

We have listed some of the best before and after photos that show exactly how misleadingly incredible visual effects can be…

Fan Reactions to Game of Thrones (SPOILER)

Well, how shocked were you by the events in Game Of Thrones’ latest episode The Mountain And The Viper?

Possibly not as shocked as these people were…

GoT events took yet another an unexpected turn in the latest installment of the HBO show, with Prince Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal) being brutally slaughtered by The Mountain Who Rides!

Fan reactions can be seen below…

Critics are questioning whether or not the show has gone too far.

We have previously had scenes of pregnant women being slaughtered, castration, nail-pulling, flaying, torture by crossbow… but the climax of The Mountain and The Viper outdid them all with a display of such frenzied violence and bloodthirstiness, it wasn’t enough for Oberyn to lose the fight. No, we had to saw his eyes pushed through their sockets, his skull crushed between the Mountain’s hands, his obliterated cranium splattered on the ground with red and grey matter all around it.

Are some things more shocking if left in the shadows, or in the imagination? As brilliantly as Game of Thrones stages this stuff, did we need to see the gore in all its glory?

As a Game of Thrones fan, what do you think?

Striking Game of Thrones DEATH Posters

With just two days to go, Game of Thrones Fans,  true “Thronies” I should say, are bubbling with excitement for the Season 4 premiere on Monday.

If you’re a follower, you’ll know that death is an important theme in the series. At any time can a character be suddenly killed off…

To celebrate the deaths thus far, HBO partnered with studio agency 360i and artist Robert M Ball on a website called ‘Beautiful Death’.

They collaborated over 30 graphic posters of the most prominent deaths since season one.

According to Mashable, the site was inspired by the “overflow of artwork that fans of the show and book produce as part of their unwavering devotion”.

Check out some of the posters below, or head over to ‘Beautiful Death’ for more.

Game of Thrones Season 4 Release Date Confirmed

The fourth season of Game of Thrones will air in the UK in April on Sky Atlantic, with Sherlock’s Mark Gatiss to feature in the new series.

Like last season, each episode shown less than 24 hours after its United States premiere on HBO. (UPDATE: Watch the trailer here) The season’s 10 episodes will begin on Monday April 7 at 9pm on Sky Atlantic. Fans will get their first sneak peek into the upcoming season on Sunday when the new trailer is released.

The series is a medieval-esque fantasy epic, with seven noble families vying for control of the fictional kingdom of Westeros amid a growing threat of wintry zombies from the lands to the north. Game of Thrones is based on the A Song of Ice and Fire books by George R R Martin, is notorious for explicit sex and violence, and for killing off established characters without warning. But many of the cast will return, including fan favourites Peter Dinklage and Emilia Clarke.

There will also be new actors joining the cast, including Mark Gatiss (currently appearing in BBC’s Sherlock) and Pedro Pascal (Homeland, The Good Wife), who will play Prince Oberyn Martell, aka The Red Viper.

The move to show the series in the UK as soon as possible after it airs in the US may be seen as an attempt to halt the growth of online Game of Thrones piracy. It was the most pirated TV show in 2013, according to Time, for the second year in a row. It was estimated the season three finale was downloaded more times than it was watched on TV.
