SR Forum: Highlander, Castlevania, Ninjago and More!

SR Forum - LEGO Ninjago, Highlander, and Castlevania

Each week, there seems to be something related to The Batman, Avengers: Infinity War or other superhero-related properties dominating the news cycle. We're mixing things up a bit this week by showcasing a few topics about heroes who don't wear capes - Ninjago, Highlander and Castlevania. Of course, news about Matt Reeves' selection to direct The Batman is on here as well.

We’ve picked a few highlights from the last seven days to help spurn conversation but feel free to discuss any topic (within reason) that catches your fancy. As with any new project, we’ll be updating and modifying the SR Forum post as we find new and interesting ways to present the information and discussion. Give us your thoughts and suggestions in the comments section. As usual, talk about whatever you like as long as it’s related to movies, TV or Screen Rant itself.


Highlander (1986) Blu-ray artwork

Iron Man, Spider-Man and Star-Lord are finally together and talking about their upcoming team up - chilling stuff for Marvel fans.

DC fans are familiar with the Mother Box and understand its importance in the Justice League world, but newcomers might be befuddled by the blink-and-you'll-miss-it MacGuffin in Batman v Superman.

There can be only one....reboot.

After Ben Affleck took off one of his many hats and decided to focus solely on the cowl, DC/WB tapped Matt Reeves to direct The Batman. Good idea or bad?


Lex Luthor may be one of the smartest villains Supergirl will ever face, but physically, he's one of the weakest. This suit should help even the odds.

As a former police office, Frank Castle is familiar with police cars - which is probably why he's stealing one right now.

Simon Belmont is finally going to hunt and fight Dracula in real life - well, on Netflix anyway. Much to the delight of NES fans everywhere, Castlevania is becoming a television series.

Power Rangers has always been a light affair but Netflix plans to change all that with a darker, animated project. Power Rangers and blood? How do you think that will go over?

New Trailers

The LEGO Ninjago Movie - Main Characters

Based on the novel by Rhidian Brook, Aftermath stars Alexander Skarsgård, Keira Knightley and Jason Clarke in post-World War II living in Hamburg, Germany during its reconstruction.

Lloyd, Jay, Kai, Cole, Zane, and Nya are six skilled ninjas training under the tutelage of Sensei Wu (Jackie Chan) - they also happen to be in high school. It's basically Power Rangers but with LEGO building blocks.

Colin Farrell is an injured Union solider held captive at a Confederate girls' boarding school. He weasels his way into the hearts of Elle Fanning, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, and Angourie Rice - but will his plan for escape backfire?

Emma Watson is super-excited to join Tom Hanks' cybertech company, The Circle, but soon discovers that giving all that online knowledge and power to one company unchecked isn't as fantastic as it sounds.

Insightful Originals

Hot Toys Suicide Squad Batman

Don't let the title fool (or enrage) you. We don't suggest replacing Batfleck, just using a younger actor as a stand in for the scenes set earlier in Batman's life.

So far, it's been a world of literal bad GUYS in charge of the Arrowverse underground, but how could a female in bringing the villainy affect the good guys? Discuss.

Interesting Lists

Hulk and Red Hulk

Many people incorrectly think The Hulk is the strongest character in the Marvel Universe, but we found several that are stronger.

From snakes, to buses, to hippogriffs, - not every special effect in the Harry Potter films was created with CGI. These are some creatures and scenes created with practical effects that might blow your mind.

Opening This Week

The Great Wall - Watch the Trailer

The thought of Charlie Day versus Ice Cube in a showdown of fisticuffs would've been enough to draw us to theaters. Tracy Morgan returning to the big screen is just icing on the comedy cake.
