Rumor: ‘Wonder Woman’ To Be Set In The 1920s

When we hear about origins story, most of the recent films have it set in modern times to give the characters a more contemporary feel. When Warner Brothers announced their massive DC slate, not only did it include Justice League, but it also included solo films for the Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman, and even Wonder Woman. Now, Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot as the titular character, will be interesting, not because it will be one of the first solo films based on a female superhero in the war of the Comic Book Studios, but that the film could actually be set in the 1920s.

That’s the rumor at least. Hit the jump for more details.

‘Evil Dead II’: A Brief Guide To The Sequel To The Ultimate Experience In Grueling Terror
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Evil Dead II

There is really no clear reason for me to write an article about Sam Raimi‘s 1987 comic horror blast Evil Dead II. It’s not celebrating an anniversary (though it did turn 25 in 2011) and no one involved in its making is preparing to do anything major in pop culture. I suppose I’m writing this in order to give myself license to regurgitate the insurmountable wealth of trivia regarding this film, which I share with the the guys at Championship Vinyl as my favorite of all time, that the disturbing level of admiration I have for it has compelled me to compile within the unguarded storage unit of my mind in the 18 years since I first watched it on a rental VHS I procured from a neighborhood video store.

Here now I present to you a compact yet nearly complete guide to Evil Dead II featuring some fascinating factoids and stories that you may or may not have already known, which all naturally depends on whether or not your love for the sequel to the ultimate experience in grueling terror runs as deeply in your soul as mine does. Bear with me, ladies and germs, for I am about to get even geekier than normally allowed at Geeks of Doom.

Black Metal Friday: “Halloween” by King Diamond

King Diamond Circa 2014

When serendipity drops Halloween on a Black Metal Friday in your lap, how can you help but think of the song “Halloween”?

King Diamond, both with Mercyful Fate and his own eponymous solo band, helped form both the black metal and thrash genres. Kim Bendix Petersen, the man behind the King Diamond persona, was one of the first true Satanists in heavy metal. Many acts had previously used occult imagery and satanism in a somewhat cartoonish fashion, but the King walked the walk and talked the talk. He has been very open about being a devout follower of Anton LaVey’s Church of Satan. All of this lent a certain authenticity to King Diamond’s macabre, occult-fueled imagery and stage show — a show that I have the great fortune of witnessing tonight at The Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles. Look for my coverage of that event right here on Geeks of Doom.

Meanwhile, in the spirit of the day, here is King Diamond from his first solo album, 1986′s Fatal Portrait with the track “Halloween.”

The Coen Brothers

There is nothing more exciting than a Coen Brothers‘ film. It has only been a year since their critically acclaimed hit Inside Llewyn Davis opened in theaters, but the siblings are at it again with Hail, Caesar! No the film isn’t exactly going to be a biopic of the Roman leader; instead it’s the final installment of the Idiot Trilogy, which began with O, Brother Where Art Thou? and continued with Intolerable Cruelty.

Now Universal Pictures has released the official synopsis for Hail, Caesar!, as well as announced the release date for the 2016 film. Yes, we will have to wait another year and a few months before we get to see a Coen Brothers’ film, which has a stellar cast. Hit the jump for the full cast and synopsis.
