The long rumor/speculated team-up between the CW’s Scarlet Speedster and CBS’s Girl of Tomorrow is finally official. Grant Gustin will blur the grand cosmic barriers that separate cable tiers to appear as Barry Allen/The Flash in an upcoming episode of CBS’s Supergirl (staring Melissa Benoist,) later this spring.

If you’ve been anywhere near social media over the past few days you are most likely very aware of two things, that Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens tomorrow in wide release (many advance screenings have already happened globally) and that apparently, a select group of (for lack of a better term) people out there, a particular pivotal scene/event/plot point should be spoiled, publicly, for those yet to see the film.
There has been a deluge of spoilers* hitting the internet over the past few hours, from official Star Wars fan pages to IMDB and Wiki pages, heck even our own Facebook fan page (which, if you have not joined, you totally should… unless of course you want to post spoilers,) has been hit with links, clips, and… well, jerks.
People, seriously, calm down. For whatever reasoning you have to take the internet and spoil* the movie for the masses (and there are numerous theories and reasonings for those actions out there that I won’t bother entertaining here,) well, maybe you just shouldn’t. But hey, why listen to some chubby dude behind a keyboard, right? (you chubby dude behind a keyboard.) How about letting Han Solo, Indiana Jones, and a very well regarded Henry tell you himself.

No doubt many of your are mere hours away from seeing Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens, and a very good percentage of you have probably re-watched the the original 3 movies in preparation for this cinematic event. Of course that leaves a great many of us scrambling to find time to get a good solid recap in before the new movie and since Episode VII starts nationwide in just a few hours we don’t really have the time, now do we?
So, rather than blaming our poor time management skills (but seriously, we have to reevaluate how we spend our time,) we can breathe sigh of relief and bang out a full review of the only Star Wars movies that matter in a little more than 20 minutes thanks to the folks over at Bad Lip Reading. You can relive all the high points of the saga like Old Ben’s endless quest for the Pickaxe of Cortez, Vader’s surprise tear jerking emotional reveal at the end of Empire, and of course the songs… Oh all the songs.

With summer con season winding down, one of the newer kids on the comic/pop-culture convention scene wrapped up this past weekend. The Saskatoon Comic & Entertainment Expo enjoyed it’s sophomore year by shattering last years attendance by Shatnering those in attendance. You could say the more than 13,000 attendees experienced the Wrath of Con and even Rescue 911 couldn’t save them from getting T.J. Hooked… uh, um, I am trying to say that William Shatner was there through the power of puns because someone told me the kids are really into puns these days, ok?
Anyway, yes Captain Kirk was there and it was as awesome as you’d expect which would then make for a decently successful expo, right? Sure, but Sask Expo 2015 wasn’t satisfied with just being decently successful, it was shooting for a spectacular second year. Did it cross into the final frontier of fantastic? Will I keep ham handedly forcing these Shatner puns?
Let’s find out! (more…)
It’s almost like we never abandoned you for two months.
Jeremy and Jason have returned, but where were they and who have they become?! Learn about their harrowing tale (busy working and playing Playstation) and also learn about their thoughts on Stephen Colbert‘s late night takeover, Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s takeover of The Apprentice, Batman V. Bourne, Godzilla V. King Kong, the almost Pulp Fiction cast, the unkillable Fantastic Four franchise, gritty Mary Poppins, sex bot ethics (RIP HitchBot), plus Donald Trump: herald of the end times.

That is, he actually kinda sorta looks like he is suppose to look.
When the internet got it’s first look at Oscar Isaac as Apocalypse in the villains eponymous X-Men movie, well let’s say it was less than kind. Yes, we all know he bore an uncanny resemblance to a certain oozy purple Power Ranger villain and yes it was kind of rough seeing the big budget Hollywood blockbuster costume pale in comparison to some great, source clinging cosplay. Well, maybe that’s not his final form?
XMenNewz has posted some photos that, if legit, might make even the most cynical X-Fan rest a little easier about En Sabah Nur’s big screen debut. It also might spoil parts of the movie so the pic and a super special surprise bonus are up after the jump. (more…)
For anyone with lingering doubts on how the second season of Netflix’s Daredevil will portray Marvel’s premier pistol packing vigilante, The Punisher, well this should sort those out. Jon Bernthal tweeted a photo that clearly displays they are getting something right this time around. (more…)
Well, the internet seems to think there is… This morning a picture started making the rounds on Reddit (and we all know that they can’t post something there if it’s not true…) reportedly from an alleged Warner Bros. Animation office of some kind showing what appears to be posters of possible animated productions that the studio may or may not be producing. One of these supposed posters features what could possible be an indication of what could be an all new Justice League cartoon… Begin wild speculation now! (more…)
If you are familiar with the Fallout games then you already know the shear joy of wandering the wastelands and exploring. Spending endless hours tooling around the post-apocalypse gathering bobby pins and teddy bears and running across the odd TARDIS here and there or a nuked fridge complete with fedora wearing archaeologist (what’s left of him at least.)
When Bethesda rolled out the latest in the series, Fallout 4, at E3 this year we were treated to more than a few videos showing off what awaits in what is left of Boston. I am sure the game will have a story about saving something or someone and probably a whole wack of quests about just that, but don’t let those distract you from what you are really there to do. The true meaning of the game will be finding the burnt out husk of a bar with a skeleton in a postal uniform and a particular rotund feral goul and finding out if they do know your name.
Anyway, wanna see 5 minutes of Fallout 4 exploration footage? (more…)
Surrounded by an ocean of discarded lanyards, empty hand sanitizer bottles, nerd tears, and a slowly dissipating funk cloud, it’s Bastard-Con 2015!, North America’s 4th biggest wholly audio nerd convention.
