The photos began circulating right around the time that JUSTICE LEAGUE began production, so the natural assumption was that he was getting ripped for his portrayal of the iconic DC character, Commissioner Jim Gordon. Director Zack Snyder has always had a penchant for heroically cut characters looking like they were ripped from the books, but Gordon has rarely- if ever- been portrayed this way.So what's the deal?

He’s driven by rage and is on a singular mission to find these people who took his family from him, and do it as brutally as possible.

Watch Deadpool Take Over the Japanese 'X-Men: Apocalypse' Trailer X-Men: Apocalypse opened in the United States in May; after five weeks in theaters it’s starting to wind down its domestic theatrical run. (Last weekend it grossed an estimated $2.4 million on about 1600 screens.)

Akira: Justin Lin Possibly Being Courted to Direct Hollywood doesn’t have a good track record when it comes to adapting anime/manga properties for the big screen, as evidenced by the underwhelming box office returns (and at best lukewarm, at worst hostile, critical reactions) for such live-action films as Dragonball: Evolution and Speed Racer, as well as the animated Astro Boy – all three of which hit theaters in the late 2000s, as it were.

'Deadpool 2' production eyes an early 2017 start Deadpool 2 is a no-brainer: The first film grossed more than $778.6 million worldwide, breaking a number of box office records in the process.
