Here’s A Rumor About Who Andy Serkis Is Playing In ‘Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron’

USE THIS FIRST

Hello everyone! Hope you all slept well. I assume you did, what with all the tranquilizing multiple orgasms going on across the planet, thanks to the leaked trailer of ‘Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron.’ I hope it was as good for you as it was for me. It was filled with tantalizing imagery and provided us with lots of questions (aside from why did Thor’s hammer bounce?)  Site Master Luke took to Facebook to immediately ask you all for theories on who Andy Serkis may have been playing in his split-second appearance. It continues to be a mystery, as he got more snarky answers than substantial theories. The internet is like that and you have to have a thick skin. But it will eventually do right by you, and some smart detectives were able to build on an existing idea thanks to that revealing shot of the motion-cap maven…

Just How Crazy is This ‘Gotham’ Oswald Cobblepot Transformation into the Joker Theory?!?

- 10-23-14Comics, TV Posted by Mark Poynter

One of the things I love about watching certain television shows is that after watching the latest episode I can go online and join discussion groups, Instant Reaction podcasts, or just join the comments section from one of Nerd Bastards’ reviews to discuss the episode and series as a whole. Gotham is one of those shows that has a very active fan base of discussion. Now there is an interesting, and far-fetched Gotham idea that is making the Internet rounds. Imagine this, Cobblepot becomes the not the Penguin as everyone expects, but instead becomes… wait for it…. the Joker. (more…)

Quicksilver Invading Future X-Films, Possibly Even Solo

If you’re a fan of X-Men: Days of Future Past, then you likely got a kick out of Evan Peters’ portrayal of one of the fastest men alive, Quicksilver. Apparently, he charmed his way into audience’s hearts enough that 20th Century Fox is feeling like he needs more screen time. And while we could all expect him to make at least a cameo appearance in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, it seems as if he may be getting his own solo flick as well. Read on for the juicy details.

TV REVIEW: ‘Arrow’ S3E3 – “Corto Maltese”

- 10-22-14Comics, reviews, TV Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

Corto Maltese, the titular island for this week’s adventurer, is entirely made up. Like a lot of locations in the DC Universe. It was introduced in The Dark Knight Returns as a Cuba surrogate, your basic South American hellhole. In Tim Burton‘s Batman, Corto Maltese was Vicki Vale’s last stop before Gotham City where she was taking pictures of a massacre stemming from the uprising of some local rebels. On Arrow, one gets the sense that Corto Maltese isn’t so bad, at least no worse than the average banana republic/tax shelter for rich guys that want to disappear in luxury. Sound like anyone we know?

Ray Fisher Had No Clue Cyborg Would Also Get a Stand Alone Movie

Sometimes Hollywood plays its movie cards so close to the vest that even the actors involved don’t find out the exact details until the last-minute. Sure, they sign multi-picture deals for big ensemble movies, but apparently Ray Fisher had no idea that along with appearing in Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice and a couple of Justice League movies that his character Cyborg would also be getting his own stand alone movie.

TV REVIEW: ‘The Flash’ – S1E3 – “Things You Can’t Outrun”

- 10-22-14Comics, Featured, reviews, TV Posted by Rush Urbalejo

Flashfeature1

After two phenomenal episodes, this week The Flash slowed down a bit so that the story could dig a bit deeper into each of the characters’ pasts.  Generally speaking, this is a wonderful thing since characters without depth are boring and unneeded.  And, honestly, it was important that we learn a bit more about the heroes and villains at the center of the series.  Unfortunately, because of its success thus far, even with an ultra cool villain Things You Can’t Outrun winds up being more filler than fun and is a bit of a misstep for the new series, albeit a small misstep.

Thought You’d Seen What AOS’s Mockingbird Would Look Like? Guess Again!

If you watched last night’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode A Hen in the Wolf House then you saw Adrianne Palicki, Agent Bobbi Morse aka the Mockingbird let loose with those batons and kick Hydra butt all over the place. Of course she was dressed in her Head of Hydra Security uniform pictured above. We wouldn’t expect her to continue to wear that outfit once her cover is blown now would we? (more…)

First ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Trailer to Air During Next Week’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’

While many fans might argue that there haven’t been enough Avengers cameos in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., it’s impossible to argue that Marvel is keeping their Cinematic Universe and Television Universes separate. Captain America: The Winter Soldier blew up Agent Coulson’s world right in front of him. Now it’s time for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to return the favor by airing the first trailer for director Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron during next week’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode. (more…)

WB Bringing Yet another Super Hero to the Small Screen with ‘Static Shock’

- 10-21-14Comics, TV Posted by Jason McAnelly

Because super heroes make money, Warner Bros. is taking advantage of their relationship (i.e.: copyright contracts) with DC to produce as many super-powered television shows and movies as they can. They’ve done a damned fine job so far with Gotham, Arrow and The Flash. Now we’ll be seeing what may be the first modern, live-action series featuring an African-American hero with Static Shock.
