"Fuller House" star Candace Cameron Bure says she's open to having LGBT topics featured on the new show.
During a Television Critics Association panel discussion held in Los Angeles earlier this month, Bure, along with co-stars Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber, and executive producers Jeff Franklin and Robert Boyett, talked about the possibility of integrating LGBT-related issues into the plotlines. Franklin said, however, that the series would first feature an episode about same-sex marriage, according to Deadline.com.
Being an outspoken Christian, Bure was pressed by reporters about her support for religious freedom following two televised disagreement she had with "The View" co-host Raven-Symoné over Christians' right to not participate in same-sex ceremonies by providing wedding cakes and flowers, and in defense of a public high school football coach's right to pray with student-athletes after games. more >>
Mike Huckabee is giving voters at the upcoming Iowa caucuses an opportunity to do more than just vote for him, but view the "God's Not Dead 2" film.
Voters at the electoral event in Iowa will have an opportunity to help select delegates that will move forward in future conventions, but Huckabee supporters will also get the opportunity to see him in a new faith based film two months before its official debut.

While it remains to be seen whether Huckabee will be giving early screenings in other cities, those who pre-register for the Iowa screening at MikeHuckabee.com/GodsNotDead can get free tickets to the 7 p.m. early screening of the film.

Stan Lee, the man responsible for bringing such popular comic book - and now big-screen - superheroes like Thor, The Hulk, Spider-Man, and the X-Men to life, has expressed his wish to see all of his superhero creations in one superhero crossover film.
"I would love to see that," the iconic comic book writer and former Marvel Comics president and chairman told Digital Spy. "Though there are so many of them now that I don't know if they'd all fit on the screen!"
But the 93-year-old comic book legend also pointed out that its entirely possible to pull off a crossover, as Marvel Studios has done. As Marvel fans know, Sony Pictures struck a deal with Marvel in early 2015 that allowed Spider-Man to appear in the forthcoming "Captain America: Civil War." The Guardians of the Galaxy is said to appear in a future Avengers film, perhaps in "Avengers: Infinity War - Part I." Sadly, Fox, who owns the X-Men, can't seem to work with Marvel to bring fans a film where Wolverine teams up with the Avengers. more >>
As has been previously reported, when the X-Men return to the big screen in May, they will be facing off with what may be the most powerful X-Men adversary of all time: Apocalypse. But what makes this new villain so powerful and what threat does he pose to the mutants and the rest of the world?
"X-Men: Apocalypse" director Bryan Singer and producer Simon Kinberg recently revealed some major details about En Sabah Nur aka Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac) in an on-set interview with some members of the press. According to Kinberg, as quoted by IGN, "He's the most powerful mutant we've ever had in one of these movies and that he would be an unbeatable foe for any individual mutant in these X-Men movies."
Singer explained that Apocalypse has a whole array of powers that he acquired as he moved from body to body over the years. These powers include the ability to imbue fellow mutants with power and increase their own powers and abilities, the ability to shield himself from psychic power, the ability to alter the inorganic molecules in things, and, as Isaac revealed during Comic-Con, the power of persuasion. This last power may be his most important, and he uses it to turn followers such as Magneto/Erik Lehnsherr (Michael Fassbender) into his Four Horsemen. Kinberg said that it will be interesting to see just how much of this persuasiveness is a function of his mutant power or "just he's like any cult leader who is really good at convincing people to follow him." The filmmakers revealed that they do not make this explicit in the film, but said that the character is "superhumanly persuasive." more >>
When news that Marvel Studios was developing a "Guardians of the Galaxy" film came out, many of those who were familiar with the comic book characters were skeptical. Just how would Marvel translate the misadventures of a rag-tag team of intergalactic misfits into the big screen? But these skeptics' misgivings proved baseless when "Guardians of the Galaxy" came out in 2014 and became an instant blockbuster success, even out-earning Marvel's other box office hit that year, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier."
As such, it came as no surprise when it was announced that a sequel, "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2," would be released in 2017 and will be helmed by "Guardians" director James Gunn. Since the announcement, so many rumors and potential spoilers about the sequel have cropped up, driving Gunn to announce in late 2015 that he would no longer comment on spoilers about the film.
But the rumor mill just can't be stopped. In fact, one of the recent "Guardians" spoiler involves a major detail about the forthcoming film: three new team members will join the Guardians of the Galaxy. more >>
