  • David S. Goyer Talks ‘Constantine’: “I Don’t Think It Should Have Been On NBC”

    Posted Saturday, October 24th, 2015 12:00 pm GMT -4

    Fans were certainly disappointed when NBC cancelled the freshman supernatural series ‘Contantine’ this past spring.  The ratings for the show, based on the DC/Vertigo comic ‘Hellblazer’ weren’t awful, but the expensive FX-heavy venture wasn’t worth the network renewing it for additional adventures. Series star Matt Ryan will reprise his role as mystical investigator John Constantine […]

    Posted Friday, October 23rd, 2015 03:00 pm GMT -4

    In what has to be one of the more exciting aspects of ‘Arrow‘ Season 4 so far (which IMO is doing better than Season 3 already), the producers of ‘Arrow’ have a storyline where Constantine (played by Matt Ryan and carrying over the same look from his short-lived NBC series of the same name) comes […]

    Posted Friday, October 23rd, 2015 09:00 am GMT -4

    Judging by what’s been shown of ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice’, one influence clearly stands bat-eared head and shoulders over any others: Frank Miller’s ‘The Dark Knight Returns’.  Director Zack Snyder admits that the 1986 alternate reality miniseries/graphic novel is one of his favorite Batman tales and that where he could, the director slipped […]

  • TV Recap: ‘Arrow: Restoration’

    Posted Thursday, October 22nd, 2015 02:16 pm GMT -4

    Oliver and company deal with Double Down.  The season seems to be progressing pretty quickly here, especially as it is only the 3rd episode and already A LOT has happened. Definitely feeling that the show is going in the right direction, and I think a lot of that has to do with how much I […]

    Posted Wednesday, October 21st, 2015 06:30 pm GMT -4

    When Laurel Lance took Thea Queen to the cemetery at the end of last week’s episode of ‘Arrow‘ and dug up the remains of her sister, I’m not sure anyone watching was surprised in the least, especially not after having seen the trailer for ‘Legends of Tomorrow‘ when it came out last season.
