An intriguing new fan theory posits that The Joker was in fact the true savior of Gotham City. It must be a testament to the depth of Ledger’s performance that we could still be developing theories; but this one is a doozy. Seriously, it’ll make you re think the entire Nolan-verse.

In an interview with Uproxx, Garfield spoke more about his thoughts on what could have been the 3rd Amazing Spider-Man film, and his views on the Marvel crossover. (more…)

Here it is, folks. The final episode of Hannibal is here. ‘The Wrath of the Lamb’ shall wrap up the last three seasons of our favorite show and possibly be the last time we shall ever see Mads Mikkelsen playing the iconic role of Hannibal Lecter. Last week we saw The Great Red Dragon get more intense (under Hannibal’s handy guidance, of course) and Will Graham was gearing up for a final confrontation. This week has as lot of ground to cover, though Hannibal has rarely disappointed in the past. So where will all of the characters we’ve grown to know and love (and hate) end up when the curtain closes? Scroll on to find out. (more…)

While watching The Walking Dead, it’s easy to get so caught up in this core group of characters’ stories that you forget that this zombie apocalypse is actually happening all over the world. Fear the Walking Dead has brought us a little taste of what the journey to survival looks like for a different set of characters, but AMC plans on showing us a completely different perspective, coming from a very unique circumstance. What would a zombie attack look like on a plane, during a flight?

A lot of fans like the idea of Rousey as Marvel, she’s got the stature and the gravitas, the only question is does she have the acting chops? That may be a moot point soon as Rousey builds her CV, but one producer has heard enough, and he wants Rousey for Captain Marvel. Well, er, the porn version anyway. (more…)
