    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 […]

    Posted Sunday, May 11th, 2014 01:00 pm GMT -4

    In ‘Loki: Agent of Asgard’ #3, we saw that the old trickster Loki has been playing an extremely long game in order to get what he wants. Once again Al Ewing shows that he is crafting a glorious tale of deceit and trickery giving us only pieces of the puzzle. Alongside the writer, Lee Garbett […]

  • Comic Book Review: ‘All-New X-Factor’ #7

    Posted Saturday, May 10th, 2014 04:00 pm GMT -4

    In the last issue of ‘All-New X-Factor’, we ended the issue with a slightly suicidal Doug and his best friend Warlock (who appears to have an interest in Danger.) While all of the recent missions the team has been on have been to help their corporate masters, in this issue we see that Serval Industries […]
