    Posted Friday, May 16th, 2014 11:00 am GMT -4

    Fox’s prequel of sorts to the Batman saga (both comic and film), ‘Gotham,’ is one of the highest profile new shows coming this fall.  The series will follow the rise of rookie detective James Gordon played by Ben McKenzie who is partnered with the “corrupt” and “violent” Harvey Dent played by Donal Logue.  The show […]

  • Zac Efron Has Been Offered An Unspecified Marvel Role

    Posted Thursday, May 15th, 2014 02:00 pm GMT -4

    Zac Efron is looking to expand his audience beyond the teenage girls that made him a super star in Disney’s ‘High School Musical’ franchise.  After a string of sappy romances and little-seen indie films, Efron appears to have struck gold with the #1 box office hit ‘Neighbors’ (alternately known as ‘Bad Neighbors’), alongside Seth Rogan.  […]

    Posted Thursday, May 15th, 2014 12:18 pm GMT -4

    Marvel’s chief creative officer Joe Quesada used to post his own column on Comic Book Resources, but had to give it up when his regular gig became too demanding.  But when Axel Alonso, Marvel’s current editor-in-chief had to take a week off, Quesada was glad to step in and reprise his ‘Cup O’ Joe’ panel […]

    Posted Wednesday, May 14th, 2014 09:00 pm GMT -4

    With the release of these short clips from Marvel Entertainment, I get this giddy feeling I used to experience from when I was a kid and found an old comic book in someone’s attic or basement. And seeing these awesome, live action videos that bring those comics to life is just thrilling. If you are […]

  • It’s Confirmed! Roberto Orci To Direct ‘Star Trek 3!’

    Posted Wednesday, May 14th, 2014 06:00 pm GMT -4

    Say what you will about the news that Roberto Orci is set to direct ‘Star Trek 3,’ but I have a soft place in my cold black heart for him. Since his work on ‘Xena: Warrior Princess,’ ‘Hercules: The Legendary Journey’s,’ ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Fringe‘ I’ve had respect for his obvious holding of the coveted […]

    Posted Tuesday, May 13th, 2014 01:09 pm GMT -4

      It’s no secret that Channing Tatum has been wanting to jump into the superhero game. Back in August 2013 while promoting his film ‘White House Down’, he expressed an interest in playing X-Men’s ragin’ Cajun mutant Gambit. Then last month the actor himself confessed of already meeting with producer Lauren Shuler-Donner for a possible role. […]

  • Here’s The First Look Of Ben Affleck As Batman And The Batmobile!

    Posted Tuesday, May 13th, 2014 10:45 am GMT -4

      And there we have it.  Ben Affleck as Batman.  At least we think it’s Ben Affleck (sure looks like his chin!). While The new suit looks less armored than the early 90s suits and less “sporty” than the more recent Christopher Nolan suits.  The image is in black and white so we don’t quite […]

  • New ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Character Video Spotlights Mystique

    Posted Tuesday, May 13th, 2014 10:00 am GMT -4

    Great news for Jennifer Lawrence fans! 20th Century Fox has released a new character video for ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’ This video features Lawrence’s role as the blue skinned, shape-shifting dynamo, Mystique. I find myself wondering if they used the same… ahem, painting technique they used on Rebecca Romijn? Back in 2003, Rebecca Romijn revealed this […]

  • TV Review: ‘Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey – The Electric Boy’

    Posted Monday, May 12th, 2014 07:00 pm GMT -4

    This week’s episode of ‘Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey’ is less a love letter to science and more a love letter to a scientist, namely Michael Faraday, who the show credits as the creator of modern technological society. Faraday is a favorite for scientists, from Brian Cox opining that if he could time travel, it would be to […]

  • ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’ Profiles Quicksilver In This New Character Video

    Posted Monday, May 12th, 2014 10:00 am GMT -4

    One of the new additions to the ‘X-Men’ movie universe is Quicksilver, played by Evan Peters.  Interestingly, his “real name” is listed as Peter Maximoff versus “Pietro” in the comic books.  This may be how Fox and Marvel/Disney are both able to use the same character in separate movie franchises.  Fox get’s “Quicksilver” and “Peter” […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘Nailbiter’ #1

    Posted Sunday, May 11th, 2014 09:00 pm GMT -4

    I don’t think it is going to be possible to read through the first few issues of ‘Nailbiter’ without comparing it to a certain book series turned movie series turned television show known as ‘Hannibal‘. However, where the current version of ‘Hannibal’ could be considered a dark satire, this is a mix of horror and […]
