These days, it’s not about the star, or the director, or even the project itself, it’s the release date. They say in real estate the three most important things are location, location, location, but usually there’s a house at that location, and not a vague reference to something that might be a house. Or it might be a parking lot or strip mall. Hollywood’s like that. We’re going to buy a piece of land, and build something there. It might be one story, or it might be seven stories. It might be a bungalow, or it might be a nuclear power plant. You know, whatever. The point is we got the land. In that spirit, Universal Pictures is playing musical chairs with their release dates, moving aside some hotly anticipated franchises in order to make room for the next chapter of newer, more valuable pieces.

Last week, Orphan Black returned with a bang. After the cliffhanger revelation of Season 2, the series wasted no time in showing just how different the male clones are from the female clones and man, are they different! The series is known for its many twists and turns throughout the story and if the first episode of Season 3 is any indication, the show will remain true to form. We had a chance to sit down with some of the cast and crew to pick their brains about the upcoming season and they were more than happy to dish on what fans can expect from the series. Well, as far as they were allowed to divulge, of course. (more…)
The reviews are in, Marvel and Netflix‘s Daredevil is a bona-fide hit. It didn’t take long for Netflix to confirm an order for the second season. That means it’s time to move to the next step in the Internet Hit Show Second Season Check List: SPECULATION. What’s going to happen in the second season, what exciting new characters will show up? Daredevil’s own Charlie Cox has a few ideas! (more…)
To paraphrase the great 90s philosopher Forrest Gump, Life is like a Marvel Studios production, you never know what well-known character you’re going to get: Loki cosplays Captain America in Thor: The Dark World, Thor’s Lady Sif pops up on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. reference is embedded in Daredevil, and so on… But things have been kept pretty separate but equal in the realms of Marvel’s movie and TV division, although there could be some mingling of “church” and “state” on the small screen soon in the form of a pretty big cameo on Netflix’s Iron Fist. That’s right fans, let’s just say that Doctor Strange might not be the first chance you get to see Doctor Strange. (more…)
Image Comics has been slaying the comic game as of late. Created by seven of Marvel Comics’ best selling artists, Image has been producing comics and graphic novels since 1992, and now stands as the 3rd largest comics publisher in the United States. (Facts obtained from ImageComics.com). You’ve no doubt heard their name before, being as they produce The Walking Dead comics that the hit AMC show is based off of. I’m going to give you some lesser-known, relatively newer titles you might want to use as a starting point to dip your toe into the pool that is Image Comics (and possibly spur your next obsession).

That Time Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner Called Black Widow a “Whore” and a “Slut” Then Apologized For It
It’s not the Internet unless there is some online controversy to get all gabby about. Instead of the normal shenanigans from Miley Cyrus or ass-hatery from Kanye West, which we’ve all come to expect, this time it’s a couple of superheroes who have let slip a case of buffoonery.
During a recent Digital Spy interview Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans, the two Age of Ultron stars were asked how they felt about Black Widow pairing up with Bruce instead of Hawkeye or Cap (as many fans had hoped), and replied by calling her a “slut” and a “whore”.
Couple of guys said something stupid while trying to be funny, and how quickly the fan-boys turn on them – judging them as bad people forever.
Watch the video below and judge for yourself. (more…)
Paul Rudd made an appearance on Late Night with David Letterman last night, bringing with him the clip of Scott Lang getting his hands on the Ant-Man suit for the first time! First appearances can often be deceiving and this one certainly was. (more…)
The commercial success of director Jonathan Liebesman‘s 2014 reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cannot be denied as much as many hard-core fans might want to wish it away into the cornfield. That financial success made a sequel a slam dunk for the beans counters over at Paramount. Word is that Megan Fox and Will Arnett are already signed and returning for the sequel with the Arrow‘s Stephen Amell locked in to play Casey Jones. Now word is making the Internet rounds that Tyler Perry is joining the cast and will play Baxter Stockman, the mad scientist and TMNT adversary. (more…)
