The star of The CW’s superhero television series Arrow, Stephen Amell, is a a great guy who is constantly doing lovely things for his fan. Even when he spent several months feuding with – and eventually wrestling with – WWE superstar Stardust did he manage to do something to make him a real life hero. He used the attention of his feud with Stardust and their match at SummerSlam to generate a whole lot of money for charity. (more…)
It was a kind of joke (but not really) for years as Trekkies fans of all stripes identified the 1999 sci-fi comedy Galaxy Quest as the best Star Trek films in years. A nice complement that also has the virtue of being true thanks in no small part to a great cast and sharp editing and visual effects work. For Trek fans, it was an Easter egg-filled delight of all the Star Trek tropes, not mention a kind of parody of all the behind the scenes drama of cast discord with the show’s conceited and marginally talented star (ahem). But might the Galaxy Quest concept be durable and adaptable for television? Well, Amazon certainly thinks so. (more…)
What do The Flash, Daredevil, and Arrow all have in common? They’re all current television shows based on comic book characters that stars the main hero. Unlike these shows, Gotham is one of the only shows that doesn’t follow the same formula. Yet it still works. Even with only one season under it’s belt, people are begging to know when are we going to see the big bat. Unfortunately, the Dark Knight may not be making an appearance anytime soon. (more…)
There’s not much that Steven Yeun hasn’t been through in his role of Glen on The Walking Dead, but while talking to Entertainment Weekly, he assured us that there’s much more coming in Season 6. We’ve seen Rick Grimes’ group undergo beatings, brutality, killings and threats, all of which have taken their mental and physical toll. Here’s what Yeun had to say about Season 6, and the emotional turn the show will be taking: (more…)
There have been plenty of Starfleet captains on television and the big screen: Captain Kirk (William Shatner), Captain Janeway (Kate Mulgrew), Captain Benjamin Sisko (Avery Brooks), and Captain Archer (Scott Bakula). Of course the best has to have been Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart). (*Insert Nerd Fight Here.) It’s been 21 years since Stewart, one of the most iconic of those starship captains, last appeared on television, and 13 years since we saw him on the big screen. Now Stewart opens the door on a chance that we may see him again…that is if the stars align just the way we want them to. (more…)
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has sort of been the red-headed stepchild of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a while. During season one, the series was stuck in neutral as the calender clicked down to the release of Captain America: The Winter Solider, and in season two, Coulson and the gang played a key role in Avengers: Age of Ultron that went unacknowledged in the big screen adventure in what should have been one of their finest hours. Is all that about to change? Might the Agents soon take their rightful place in the MCU (there is a comic book based on the characters now after all) with this season’s adventure? Let’s give a hint with one word: Inhuman. (more…)
Hold on to something tight because things will be speeding up for fans of The Flash on The CW. We know of two speedsters so far in the form of the Flash and Eobard Thawne. Season two will also see Flashes Wally West and Jay Garrick. Now get ready for a fifth. Fans of the comic book series should be familiar with this character. Repeat after me, “3×2(9yz)4a.” (more…)
As if the two trailers for Ash vs The Evil Dead weren’t enough for you to break out your rusty chainsaws and read to your young ones from the Necronomicon, Starz has released a behind the scenes featurette from their upcoming series premiering on Halloween night.
The video includes words from star Bruce Campbell, producer Robert Tapert, Lucy Lawless, and composer Joseph LoDuca, among others. Each have a little bit to say about returning to the franchise some 23 years later, the creative direction, and what to expect from this highly anticipated show. (more…)
Marvel has released the short origin story prequels of Groot, Star-Lord, and Rocket Raccoon already in preparation of the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Animated Series, and now the time has come for us to take a closer look at the story of Drax the Destroyer. You’ll remember him as the very literal, revenge-bent force to be reckoned with, albeit with a lesser seen caring and loyal side. Although the videos don’t follow the same timeline as the film, Drax still proves to be very much the same.
The world and characters that Garth Ennis created in his Preacher comic run is so out-there crazy fun, it sounds like an almost impossible task to bring some of these personalities to life. Take for example, Arseface. After a botched attempted suicide, a shotgun blast leaves Arseface’s face disfigured and looking, well… rather like a butt hole. Thanks to a Facebook post by Seth Rogen, we’re able to have our first sneak peek at Ian Colletti as Arseface– and the character translates extremely well! (more…)
