You ready for a Flash? Tonight Arrow introduces Barry Allen into the pointy mix. Below, our bullet-pointed catch-up and a plot summary, going into the two-part mid-season finale. Actually, calling this a “mid-season” finale is weird because the show’s back January 15th anyway. Show More Summary
Loki, Sif, and Thor photographed by Pat Loika. Submitted via the Gamma Squad Flickr Group. It’s that time of the week when we post a mixed bag of intriguing costumes we’ve spotted recently. Some of it’s new; some of it isn’t; all of it is worth highlighting. Are you a cosplayer or photographer who would like to be featured on Gamma Squad?
Garth Ennis asks how dogs would deal with humanity going to hell. And it’s a pretty compelling piece of work, a horror comic book that will make you really want to hug your dog, plus looks at books from DC, Marvel, Image, Dark Horse,...Show More Summary
No, not Paul Walker. (2 soon? Sorry.) The Wrap reports Gal Gadot (Fast And Furious 6) has been cast as Wonder Woman in Batman vs Superman, opening July 17, 2015. Director Zack Snyder stated: “Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe.
Of course when you think “Star Wars weapons” your mind immediately goes to lightsabers, but the blasters Luke, Han and company used to shoot holes in Stormtroopers were pretty rad in their own right. Well, you’ll soon have the opportunity to purchase the most iconic Star Wars blaster of all (assuming you have a few hundred thousand in cash lying around).
Yesterday we got our first look at The Green Goblin and Rhino in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 thanks to people tweeting blurry photos of a triptych poster. Now Sony has released the high-res version as seen above (in full size at the film’s official Twitter). Five new pictures were also released to USA Today, who spoke to the aptly-named director, Marc Webb.
The Xbox One interface is… let’s be charitable and say that it’s a work in progress. Either way, it’s not what you call “universally loved.” Microsoft’s solution? Windows 8! Or, at least, incorporating elements of Windows 8 into the Xbox One interface. Show More Summary
Remember Christophe Gans? For a while, he was going to take over Hollywood; after Brotherhood of the Wolf became successful despite making no sense whatsoever, he was drafted to make Silent Hill into a movie. Then he disappeared for seven years. Show More Summary
The Pete Holmes Show posted a new “Ex-Men” segment in which he portrays Professor X, insulting and firing mutants like Nightcrawler, Iceman, Jubilee, Angel, Gambit, and Wolverine. Now he’s firing Rogue, the obvious reason being, “Insurance is through the roof, and having an unintentional energy vampire just going around touching sh-t?
You wouldn’t think The Wolverine needs to be nearly three hours long; as we noted, the “Unleashed Extended Edition” is nearly that length, although later that was trimmed to twelve minutes of extra footage. But oddly, this turns out to be for the better. Much better. The problems are still there; the third act is still goofy as all hell.
J.J. Abrams recently apologized for his overuse of lens flares in Star Trek Into Darkness. Now he’s apologizing via MTV for the way the film was promoted. Specifically for the way they tried to hide who Benedict Cumberbatch was playing as if that could be kept a secret. Show More Summary
As our own Nathan Birch noted yesterday, as of today, Gran Turismo 6 will be the last notable release until February. The one-two punch of developing for new consoles and the delay of a major title means that the entire gaming industry...Show More Summary
The first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will arrive later this week, but we’re getting our first look at The Green Goblin and Rhino thanks to people tweeting pictures of a triptych poster for the film. Yes, there are already posters...Show More Summary
Harlan Ellison may be a fairly well-respected author now, but he spent years during the 60s and 70s toiling away as a low-level TV scribe, cranking out scripts for whatever show would have him. He even wrote a script for the classic Batman TV series — that’s right, one of the crankiest men on the planet wrote a script for the always upbeat Adam West camp-fest.
Last time we checked in on James Covenant, he had recreated Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” with Star Wars footage. Now he’s turned those editing skills towards our favorite lobster with which we want to be homies forever, Sir Patrick Stewart. Check out the video below to see Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the U.S.S.
Aquaman is an odd duck when it comes to superheroes. He’s been continuously in print since the ’40s, but he’s largely known for being a second-stringer; not even the Powerpuff Girls take the poor guy seriously. But that’s something DC wants to change. At least, that’s the thrust of a Variety piece discussing DC’s plans for the King of the Seven Seas.
One of the dreams of comics fans is that comic book movies will get popular enough that some of the smaller but durable concepts will hit the screen. It’s part of the reason Arrow has a fan base. But apparently DC Comics has big plans...Show More Summary
Arcades are still popular in Japan, but in America, they’re something of an endangered species. Which is sad in its own way, but really, really frustrating when you hear about a game like the upcoming Batman. Essentially, it’s an open-world racing/car-combat game where you zoom around Gotham fighting the Joker, Mr. Show More Summary
Bill Watterson’s Calvin And Hobbes comic strip ran from 1985 to 1995 and helped define our childhoods. We love seeing things inspired by Calvin and Hobbes, like this theme wedding, cute GIFs, lots of cosplay, and documentary Dear Mr....Show More Summary
He may be old, evil and dead, but Darth Vader is still familiar enough with Oxford Dictionaries’ 2013 Word of the Year, because Luke’s and Leia’s dad helped launch the Star Wars official Instagram account today with his very own selfie. Show More Summary
