COMIC REEL: "Suicide Squad" Unleashes Character Art; "Lip Sync Battle" Enlists Zod


Warner Bros. has released a series of character portraits for the cast of "Suicide Squad." While much of the art is familiar, each character is isolated for your personal photoshopping needs...



"Man of Steel" and "Batman v Superman's" Zod, Michael Shannon, will be appearing on Spike TV's "Lip Sync Battle," as announced by the series' official Twitter account.

There's no word yet on what Shannon will be lip syncing, or who he'll be up against, but based on his portrayal in "Elvis & Nixon," we can bet he'll have something special up his sleeve.

Also in the vein of "Batman v Superman," YouTube user BitCine has recreated key moments from the film as an 8-bit video game.

Check out the video, which celebrates the film for its action sequences in an '80s/'90s arcade style, below:


Playing off the brilliant post-credits scene, someone has mashed up "Deadpool" and "Ferris Bueller's Day Off"...with an ODB music cue in there for added flavor.

Check out the hilarious video, with Deadpool as Ferris, Negasonic Teenage Warhead as Sloane and Colossus as Cameron, below:


AMC has released a sneak peek and promo for next week's episode of "Preacher," titled "Monster Swamp."

The trailer introduces the threat of two new chainsaw-wielding antagonists with deadly plans for Jesse Custer, while the clip sees Jesse dismiss a warning from Cassidy:

Based on the twisted and popular '90s comic book franchise of the same name, "Preacher," created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, is the story of Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) a conflicted Preacher in a small Texas town who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that allows him to develop a highly unconventional power. Jesse, his ex-girlfriend, Tulip (Ruth Negga), and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) embark on a journey to, literally, find God.

A new rumor purports that the next -- and final -- "Wolverine" film to star Hugh Jackman in the role will be titled "Wolverine: Weapon X."

According to XMenFilms.com, Fox registered the name, which references the facility where Wolverine got his adamantium skeleton. The title also refers to the enraged, animalistic version of Wolverine that made a cameo in "X-Men: Apocalypse."

The title may surprise some who thought the film would be an adaptation of Mark Millar and Steve McNiven's "Old Man Logan." So far, we only know the film will be R-rated, set in the future and have a Western feel. Other rumors suggest that the mutant-hating Donald Pierce and the Reavers will be the primary villains.
