And of course, Mark Hamill’s DC Animated Universe family also took some time to show him some love. Among them was none other than the Batman to Hamill’s Joker — Kevin Conroy. In his own post, Conroy shared a loving photo of him and his frequent co-star, which proves that the Clown Prince of Crime can make the Dark Knight smile:
It’s short and sweet. Taylor-Joy simply said “here we goooo,” posting a side-by-side image of herself in pink with the video game heroine. Also joining the cast is Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong and Charles Martinet, the original voice of Mario will be making some “special cameos” throughout the movie. The Super Mario Bros. movie is set to come out on December 21, 2022.
Inclusion Of Other Tom Clancy Characters
Both Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger feature Jack Ryan (as well as his family) and Jim Greer, but which movie has the best use of other iconic Tom Clancy Characters?
Patriot Games’ Characters
A pre-Pulp Fiction Samuel L. Jackson shows up in Patriot Games as Lt. Commander Robby Jackson and provides a great deal of assistance during the IRA’s raid on Jack Ryan’s house in the film’s final act.
Clear And Present Danger’s Characters
Willem Dafoe takes on the role of Special Forces operative John Clark in Clear and Present Danger, and despite being portrayed as a more morally ambiguous character early on, he ends up siding with Jack Ryan in his final attempt to save the surviving members of the RECIPROCITY team and get to the bottom of the conspiracy.
Winner: Not only do we see more of Jim Greer in Clear and Present Danger (his death adds a great deal of emotional weight to the movie), but it also features John Clark, who is perhaps Tom Clancy’s second-most notable character next to Jack Ryan.
Face/Off is one of the most beloved and acclaimed action films of the ’90s. There’s a lot to love about it, but what arguable stands out the most about the film is its quotable lines of dialogue and memorable scenes. While most of these moments came from the minds of Mike Webb and Michael Colleary, others came from the talent themselves. Of course, being the artist that he is, Nicolas Cage was open to contributing to the action flick and, as it so happens, he and co-star Alessandro Nivola produced one of the film’s wildest and most quotable lines.
The Toxic Avenger (From Tromaville, New Jersey)
The Toxic Avenger (or, just Toxie to his fans), was repping New Jersey before it was cool. In fact, he was even referred to as “New Jersey’s first superhero” when he debuted in 1984. Born Melvin Ferd Junko III, a prank sent the relative weakling flying out the window into a barrel of toxic waste. It deformed him, sure, but it also gave him super strength. Three sequels, a comic book, a cartoon series, and even a musical later (And a remake!), and The Toxic Avenger is still going strong.
Okay, so yeah. Tromaville isn’t a real town in New Jersey. In fact, the studio behind The Toxic Avenger series, Troma, is actually where The Suicide Squad and Guardians of the Galaxy director, James Gunn, got his start. But, how cool is it that Troma is so ingrained in New Jersey that it wants to have its own town in the Garden State? Now that’s loyalty.

No Time To Die finally releases on October 8 and will mark Daniel Crag’s final outing as James Bond. From what we’ve seen so far, it should be quite the send-off for the man who has carried the franchise for the last fifteen years. It’s sure to be a bittersweet experience for fans and for Craig himself, as a video even recently showed his last day of filming No Time To Die, during which he gave an emotional speech to the crew. With this, the actor already knows how he’ll feel when his successor is named.

Billie Eilish has had a massively transformative year. She released a new album, Happier Than Ever, and has recently started playing massive shows for the first time since her 2020 tour was cut short due to the pandemic. Ahead of releasing her album over summer, the Grammy-winning singer decided to change a few things about her image, and the reaction was viral. Now, she shared some thoughts on losing followers for her more “provocative.”
The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)
In this classic musical, The Rocky Horror Picture Show pays tribute to the science fiction and B movies of the 1930s, telling the story of a newly engaged couple who are seeking shelter from a storm, and come to the home of a cross-dressing mad scientist, Dr. Frank-N-Furter, and his new creation.
I feel like if you’ve heard of Tim Curry, this is the first film you ever saw him in – and it was for me too. And there’s a huge reason why Curry ended up blowing up after his appearance. He perfectly captures the wackiness of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, while also providing a very comical movie full of tunes and dance breaks that will make anyone get on their feet, no matter the age.
The movie might be a bit out of date nowadays, but that still doesn’t change the fact that it’s a fun time.
But in a funny twist, Meryl Streep’s president doesn’t really care about what they have to say. When Dr. Mindy and Kate spell it out, her and Jonah Hill’s Jason Orlean get caught up in the percentage of possibility it may happen. Even though their findings place the event at almost 100% accuracy, the president and her staff decide to say there is a 70% chance, before saying they’ll be getting their own scientists on the subject. Until then, the president asks for everyone to “sit tight and access.”
