‘The Batman’ shows Robert Pattinson in costume for the first time

Warner Bros. and © DC Comics(LOS ANGELES) — We got our first peek at Robert Pattinson suited up as the Caped Crusader on Thursday, as The Batman, courtesy of writer/director Matt Reeves.

The nearly minute-long teaser is from a screen test of Pattinson in costume, shot by The Batman cinematographer Greig Fraser and set to music from the film’s composer, Michael Giacchino.

The Batman, which began filming last month, also stars Colin Farrell as Penguin, which will be a much more elegant take than Danny DeVito’s fish-chomping presentation in Tim Burton’s Batman Returns, as well as Paul Dano as The Riddler, Andy Serkis as Alfred, Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, and Westworld‘s Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Jim Gordon.

The Batman opens June 25, 2021.

Dwayne Wade says daughter Zaya helped him become the man of his dreams

John Sciulli/Getty Images for NBA 2K20(LOS ANGELES) — Dwayne Wade isn’t too proud to admit that his daughter has taught him a few things.

The NBA star dished about the positive effect that his 12-year-old, Zaya, who was born male and named Zion, has had on him while at the premiere of his ESPN documentary, D.Wade: Life Unexpected.

“I think coming from the inner city of Chicago early on, I was kind of closed-minded on a lot of things,” Wade told Entertainment Tonight. “And I’ve been with my wife, traveling the world, meeting people, going to different places, I’ve learned to keep my mind open, keep my eyes open, keep my heart open, keep my thoughts open.”

“That’s what I’ve been trying to do as I’m growing into the man that I’ve always dreamed of becoming,” he added.

Wade opened up about his daughter’s journey on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday.

“Zaya, our 12-year-old… came home and said, ‘Hey, so I want to talk to you guys. I think going forward I’m ready to live my truth. And I want to be referenced as ‘she’ and ‘her.’ I would love for you guys to call me Zaya,'” he explained.

“We are proud parents of a child in the LGBTQ+ community,” Wade said of himself and wife, Gabrielle Union.

Ryan Seacrest reveals the distraction that caused his fall on Live with Kelly and Ryan

ABC/Gavin Bond(NEW YORK) — It doesn’t look like Ryan Seacrest will be able to live down the hilarious moment he fell out of his chair on live television anytime soon.

The Live with Kelly and Ryan host stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday and explained exactly how he ended up on the studio’s floor.

“Normally, we have little balloons that fall down. Well, we went big and got these grand, gorgeous, shiny disco balloons that caught my eye when they first started to come down in the new year,” he explained to host Jimmy Fallon. “I couldn’t stop staring at them, so I’m trying to catch one of the balloons and then, it happens.”

Seacrest added that his morning show cohost, Kelly Ripa, got lucky.

“There was a moment where I almost brought her down with me,” he said.

The American Idol host also revealed that the tumble left him with a bruise on his thigh due to the studio’s “hardwood floor that clearly was just cement with a sticker on top.”

The unexpected moment occurred over a month ago on January 7, yet Seacrest said that he still gets asked about it.

“People will come up to me now and say, ‘Hey, listen, how are you?’… ‘how are you feeling?’… ‘I saw you fall out of the chair,” he recalled. “Well that was the beginning of the year.”

Epix’s ‘Godfather of Harlem’ renewed for a second season

EPIX(LOS ANGELES) — Epix has renewed Godfather of Harlem for a second, ten-episode season.

Starring Oscar-winner Forest Whitaker, the series was inspired by the life of crime boss Bumpy Johnson, played by Whitaker, who returned from eleven years in prison to take back control of the neighborhood he once ruled, and fighting the Italian mob to do it.

Bumpy’s association with Malcolm X, played by Nigel Thatch, during his political rise causes problems for the world of organized crime during the civil rights movement in the early 1960s.

Godfather of Harlem has received tons of praise from reviewers and critics since its debut last year. Shadow and Act called the series “The Best Show You’re Not Watching.”  Swizz Beats serves as executive music producer on the show. 

Production on season two is expected to begin later this year in New York.

Despite all those negative emotions, Doherty vows she is fighting to focus on the positive and that she believes that “I will find my footing.”

“I’ll dig deep for the inner strength I need to face it all. I pray I do it all with dignity and grace,” Promises the Charmed actress before telling fans “please know how much you all help lift me.”

Lionel Richie tells Jimmy Kimmel why he’s ‘easy’ on ‘American Idol’ castoffs

ABC/Stewart Cook(LOS ANGELES) — American Idol returns Sunday with judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie heading back behind the judges’ table.  The trio dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday and teased what’s in store this season.

Katy, Luke and Lionel will once again sit through the usual parade of hopefuls — from the super talented to the just plain awful and it turns out that the job of breaking the bad news often falls to Richie, who told Kimmel he tries to temper the criticism with a little positive reinforcement.

“It’s my job to basically go in and say, ‘listen, I build you up to the point where you made it this far, but do you have a shot in this competition?  Absolutely not.’  But I don’t leave them broken.”

Despite having three seasons under his belt, Richie says Bryan and Perry both manage to keep him on his toes.

“Whatever my comfort zone was, they have taken me to a new level of just, by the seat of my pants,” he admits. “I’m not sure what’s gonna happen. But going out on that show, every time we go out, I just hold my breath and go, ‘God, take me to the next level.'”

In spite of that, Perry knew Richie would be a perfect addition to the judges’ table.

“We had a drink together and he was telling me stories about Diana Ross and Whitney Houston and Prince and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, you’ve got just such an incredible history and legacy and wisdom.’ And so, [the producers] like asked me, ‘Who do you think should be on the show, who’d be really complimentary, I was like really, Lionel Richie would hold it down so hard,’ and he has.”

American Idol returns Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

ABC/Eric McCandless(NEW YORK) — Hilary Duff is back! Fans of the Lizzie McGuire star were celebrating on Wednesday when she officially ended her years-long dry spell on new music.  For those keeping count, it’s been roughly four years.

Teaming up with husband Matthew Koma, the two released their cheerful cover of Third Eye Blind’s “Never Let You Go.”  The husband and wife duo collaborated with RAC, a Grammy award-winning DJ, on the new single.

Duff harmonizes with Koma in the chorus and repeats “I’ll never let you go” by herself throughout the song.

RAC, whose real name is André Allen Anjos, spoke about the new single on Twitter, saying that it “started out as something we were doing just for fun and I think it comes through.”

The 32-year-old actress last released new music in 2016 with her single “Little Lies” to promote the second season of her comedy Younger, which airs on TV Land.

Duff and Koma began dating in 2017 and, after welcoming daughter Banks Violet a year later, the two tied the knot in a private ceremony on December 21, 2019.
