Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice has been in production for so long that its felt like waiting for Itchy & Scratchy to get to the fireworks factory waiting to see a trailer. Some lucky buggers got approriately teased last summer at San Diego Comic Con, but unless you like grainy videos shot at weird angles and with muffled sound, not even the bootlegs suffice. No big deal, you may say, the release of the movie is still a long way off, right? Well what if I told you that the release of Batman V. Superman is now less than a year away? It’s true, and now we’re getting news that the first look at the epic showdown between the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel maybe coming soon to a theater (and computer) near you. (more…)
If you were watching last night’s episode of The Flash, Tricksters, for any other reason that seeing Mark Hamill reprise his role from the 90’s Flash series, you may have been watching for the wrong reasons.

And on top of that, we now have a vaguely evocative image to tease fans the world over. (more…)
Since it began tumbling around in Hollywood’s dryer back in 2007, the Metal Gear Solid film has experienced some peaks and valleys in its journey to actual production. People have come and gone and the project even completely fell off the radar for most. Hell, even the game series itself is facing its biggest challenge yet with the heavily rumored departure of its leading man Hideo Kojima. Now, perhaps due to the highly anticipated Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain‘s impending release, Sony has restarted the project’s engine with a new screenwriter on deck to pen Snake’s cinema infiltration.

TV REVIEW: Give The Devil His Due Netflix’s ‘Daredevil’ Series Is Dark, Intense, and Mercilessly Good
From the moment the opening credits roll, featuring a blood soaked lady liberty, dripping city scapes, and ominous music, you know you’re in for something far more serious and different than Marvel’s typical fun, cheeky, and thrilling cinematic norm. Not that Marvel’s newest show isn’t fun or thrilling, it’s both in spades! However, this is a different type of good time. With its dark and gritty take, which is far removed from the tones of any of the Avengers’ stand-alone features, Daredevil is simply one of the best surprises of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Note: Character details and some situations are highlighted, but otherwise this is a spoiler free review. (more…)
