Fans of Arrow, prepare yourself for an epic reveal – the very first full-length trailer from the show’s third season. SDCC brings us many things, some good, some not-so-much, but this is one treat that Arrowheads everywhere have been long-awaiting. Witness such teases as Oliver’s time in Hong Kong, the introduction of The Atom, the return of The Dark Archer and much, much more. Scroll on for all the Arrow-y goodness.
Game Of Thrones fans are about to get so much Dorne, they won’t know whether to fight or throw orgies. Enigmatic lover, family man and fearsome fighter Oberyn Martell was a fantastic addition to last season’s consistently unpredictable forays. With Spain playing the part of his homeland, we’re going to see a ton of his homies and kin. But it’s not all about Dorne, we’ve got a couple other Westerosi to contend with too. Book readers are sure to froth over some of these mentions and we finally find out which of the Red Viper’s daughters Keisha Castle-Hughes is playing. Here’s a quick hint: all our guesses were wrong. And to commemorate our failure, HBO provided us with two videos to watch with varied levels of satisfaction.

There’s no arguing the first half or so of the first season was to be called into question on the characterization and quality front. Doubts, however, were washed away when the show brought in the world changing events from Captain America: The Winter Solider and ended on a very dramatic high note. SHIELD got good, and it hopes to stay good.
Keeping the excitement going, Marvel was in full force today at San Diego Comic Con, where a number of Agents of SHIELD announcements for the upcoming second season were, well, announced. New characters revealed, secrets from Patton Oswalt, and more. (more…)

Firefly, Joss Whedon‘s show that would not die, made the move from the small screen of television to the big screen of Hollywood years after its untimely cancellation.
