The latest racial Marvel controversy surrounds the casting of  Caucasian English actor Finn Jones as Iron Fist, one of Marvel’s […]

  • TV Review: ‘Arrow: The Recruits (Season 5 Episode 2)’

    Posted Thursday, October 13th, 2016 01:00 pm GMT -4

    It seems the good folks at ‘Arrow’ heard the praise from the premiere episode, and have decided to keep things on track, and the second episode of the season, in my opinion, mostly kept everything going right that was started in the premiere, even with the inclusion of the new recruits. The show remained dark […]

    While ‘Ghost Rider‘ is flying forward full steam on Marvel’s ‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘ we haven’t had any solid word on what is going on with ‘Blade‘ but we’ve just learned that nothing “imminent” is happening with the character. Over the weekend at New York Comic-Con we heard from Kate Beckinsale that a crossover between ‘Underworld’ […]

    Well for those that have complained from the beginning of ‘Supergirl’ that they have completely changed the character of Jimmy Olsen, you better brace yourselves.

    Mash-ups are totally a cool thing to do. We see it happen all the time when people bring together two tracks to create a new song or two fandoms in some sick fan art. We’ve even seen it happen with our favorite comic book superheroes. Amalgam Comics combined our favorite Marvel and DC characters together […]

    Wonder Woman is immortal as long as she dwells on Paradise Island, but what is Lynda Carter’s secret to eternal youth?  The actor who played ‘Wonder Woman’ in the 70s doesn’t appear to have aged a day since that heyday.

  • TV Review: ‘The Big Bang Theory: Dependence Transcendence’

    Posted Tuesday, October 11th, 2016 07:21 pm GMT -4

    Let’s be honest, there was a lot of expectation for this episode as it was finally going to give us another major step forward in the Amy and Sheldon relationship, akin to the epic episode from last season where they finally decided to have sex while the rest of the gang went and saw ‘The […]

    Posted Tuesday, October 11th, 2016 04:55 pm GMT -4

    After a load roaring cheer, the main stage room grew quiet during Marvel Entertainment’s Netflix Panel this weekend at New York’s Javits Center for New York Comic Con 2016.

  • Bruce Campbell Says ‘Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash’ Movie Will Likely Never Happen

    Posted Tuesday, October 11th, 2016 04:30 pm GMT -4

    Crossover projects are notoriously hit-and-miss.  Whether existing in a film, televised, or literature form, having two (or more) characters or worlds cross paths can sound like an extremely good and very exciting idea on paper, but logistical questions can put a damper on any potential outcome.  Who “controls” the characters in the story line, if […]

    Posted Tuesday, October 11th, 2016 12:00 pm GMT -4

    Ever since fans learned that ‘Supergirl’ was going to be coming to the CW to join its fellow DC shows, there has been much speculation about whether or not that meant her world would remain outside of Earth prime in the greater multiverse of the DC television universe. It made sense story-wise that her world […]

  • An Animated ‘Wonder Woman’ Movie Is On Warner Brothers’ Radar

    Posted Tuesday, October 11th, 2016 10:00 am GMT -4

    In 2009, Warner Brothers released an animated ‘Wonder Woman’ movie but sales were sluggish to begin with.  That coupled with another sluggish release of an animated ‘Green Lantern’ movie led to the studio vowing to not release any more movies that didn’t star Superman or Batman, but it appears times have changed.  Perhaps with Gal […]
