Sure, you d think she s dress as Supergirl for the occasion, but I guess Supergirl s cape would ve been a hazard while running an obstacle course like this.That said, her choice of DC superhero does not get in the way of Jessie Graff absolutely destroying this obstacle course like it was a walk in a National City park.Graff, whose career as a stuntwoman includes Supergirl, Agents of SHIELD, Transformers, Iron Man 2, and many more, became the first woman to best American Ninja Warrior s new obstacle course during the recent season eight premiere—impressive enough, considering her previous track record on the show included her being the woman who made it the farthest in the competition in the previous season.But this was made doubly impressive by the fact that she completely nailed this challenge while also dressed as Wonder Woman to boot.Who knows, now that she s progressed to the next stage of the competition, Graff might swap the Wonder Woman cosplay for something Supergirl-themed she should still probably skip the cape, though .Either way, it s pretty badass to see her bringing these superheroes to life while performing her own phenomenal feats of strength and skill.

The movie Pacific Rim 2, which at one point had seemed doomed, will be happening and John Boyega of Star Wars fame will have the lead role.Pacific Rim world creator Guillermo del Toro praised Boyega, saying, The Pacific Rim universe will be reinforced with him as a leading man … The World saving the world was our goal and I couldn t think of a better man for the job."The second Pacific Rim movie has been in the pipeline for a while — it was all the way back in 2013 that word surfaced about a written sequel, and some time later the project was given the go-ahead.The movie was set to arrive in theaters in April 2017, but in September 2015 a report surfaced claiming that a rift between Universal Pictures and Legendary Entertainment ultimately resulted in Pacific Rim 2 being halted indefinitely.It isn't clear whether the movie will still be released in April 2017, though if reports that production will start in Q4 of this year, it seems unlikely we'll see it premiere so early next year.Regardless, Boyega will be the central character when the movie does finally hit theater, and we ll also be seeing him sooner, as well in the movie The Circle.
