  • Stunt Postering: ‘Daredevil’ Motion Poster Contains More Than It Might Seem

    Posted Monday, March 23rd, 2015 01:24 pm GMT -4

    Not even motion posters are safe from Easter eggs and internet scrutiny, as the recently released poster for Marvel/ Netflix’s ‘Daredevil’ proves. The poster may seem innocuous enough, with Matt Murdock slowly making his way down a street in Hell’s Kitchen, approaching the camera while voice-overs from various characters in the series echo around him.

    With a history being told in the current ‘Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.’ and the ongoing series for both ‘B.P.R.D. Hell On Earth’ as well as ‘Abe Sapien’ it almost seems like Mike Mignola wouldn’t have room on his plate for more. Thankfully, anyone who believes that would be wrong with the introduction of his latest […]

    Well, Mark Millar has done it again!

    Adding to the fantastic CW/DC Universe, executive producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg have joined forces with Sarah Schecter (who is also working with the team on CBS’s ‘Supergirl’) to create a new spin-off series, set to star Brandon Routh as Roy Palmer/ the ATOM, Caity Lotz as potentially a resurrected Sara Lance/Black […]

  • TV Recap: ‘Arrow: The Offer’ (Season 3 Episode 16)

    Captain Lance hits Oliver with some piercing accusations. Following the one month hiatus of ‘Arrow,’ it was reasonable to expect the first episode back to re-acquaint us with the current plot and prepare the story and characters for the final arc of the season. And while this first episode back was pretty good, I was […]

    With an ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ movie coming out this year, I think it’s time we look back at Joanna Lumley in her science fiction role long before she was the hard-drinking Patsy Stone. That’s why today, ‘Sapphire and Steel’ is the subject of Throwback Thursday, ScienceFiction.com’s tribute to the great science fiction of the past. ‘Sapphire […]

    Since it was announced that Kelly Sue DeConnick and Matt Fraction signed a deal with Universal TV to develop their creator-owned comic properties into television shows, some fans feared that the charismatic and extremely passionate writer of ‘Bitch Planet’ and ‘Pretty Deadly’ would be stepping away from comics a bit. However, fans who found her […]

    Back in November 2014, Marvel Comics released the final ‘Secret Wars’ teaser that said, “Everything Ends.” Since then, we’ve been getting more and more details about the new books coming our way when the upcoming event shifts into gear. But what exactly did that teaser with the date “Spring 2015” mean? Marvel’s SVP of Sales & […]

    Mark Millar has a new comic coming out called ‘Chrononauts’ and artist Sean Gordon Murphy hid something kind of fun on the cover. First off these are ‘Chrononauts’ and not the hybrid croissant-doughnut known as Cronuts. So don’t expect to be looking closely for a tasty pastry treat anywhere as the secret hidden on the […]

    After being introduced in ‘Age of Ultron,‘ long-time ‘Spawn’ character Angela made quite an impact on the Marvel Universe. The Angel of Heven spent some time traveling with the Guardians of the Galaxy, but then in ‘Original Sin,’ we all learned that she is actually a lost daughter of Asgard. Since then, she’s been starring in ‘Angela: […]

    Something stinks over at WB/DC, and I’m guessing it’s the miscast barbarian purporting to be Aquaman. And no, its not the ocean-life he’s surrounded himself with, it is the attitude of the man himself, who seems to be missing the point in playing a super-hero in the first place. Sure, all too often these films […]
