Normally, this is the time when we would be getting most excited about the pending arrival of the next season of Game of Thrones. April was usually the launching point for the new season, but the arrival of winter on the series required that shooting dates to be pushed back, so summertime is the time for Game of Thrones now, and winter is very much hinted at in this latest teaser for the show’s penultimate season. In it, three of the series primary characters get ready for the final battle, glaring at the screen with the expectation that some bad stuff is about to go down.  (more…)

This time a year ago we were trying to shake off the disgruntlement of our disappointment concerning Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice. One of the places where BvS went wrong was that it it was just over two-and-a-half hours long while being almost incomprehensible plot-wise speaking. Almost immediately, Warner Bros. said, “Hey, if you want the plot to make sense, you should watch this Blu-ray version that’s over three-hours long!” So either because Warners has decided that longer is better, or because they only way they can do Justice League properly is with more time, get ready for an epic runtime for the DC superhero team-up movie.  (more…)

Warner Bros has been trying to make a live action adaptation of Akira for over a decade, with the film almost coming close a few times. But it’s development hell that’s got this one stuck, directors keep dropping out, disputes over budget and contracts, nothing can go right. There have been some rumors floating around of a couple directors who Warner Bros is considering, Daniel Espinosa (Life) and David Sandberg (Lights Out) among them. But Tracking Board recently shared that a new name has just reached the top of Warner Bros list, another horror director, Jordan Peele. (more…)

As predicted, the season finale of Legion did not end predictably. You can stuff the evil entity that’s possessing you into a head coffin, you can be surrounded by evil government stormtroopers ready to pump your friends’ guts full of lead, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun, take your time, and just let the situation unfold in its own way. Yes, even though our heroes were faced with two remarkable high anxiety situations going on in this week’s Legion, the entire affair unfolded in a very laid back way. This has been a wonderful eight episode ride, which is why it’s a shame that there’s a couple of concerns moving on to season two. (more…)

It’s been almost 14 years since Buffy The Vampire Slayer signed off the air. In the end, all that remained was a hole in Sunnydale and a hole in the hearts of all the fans from around the world. Over the years, stars from the show have been in an out of the spotlight and headlines. Some of them even make con appearances every now and then. But it’s been quite some time since all of them have been in the same room. There was Buffy, Xander, Willow, Angel, Cordelia, Spike, Dawn – even Joss Whedon was there. So many people, so many feelings, so many memories. When you’re ready, make the leap and keep on reading.

As the first black superhero to have his own DC standalone comic book series, Black Lightning is not only an iconic character, but has a legacy that is significant well beyond the realm of comics. Created by Tony Isabella and Tony von Eeden, Black Lightning is an Olympic gold medallist, a high school principal and an accomplished member of the Justice League – and that is all before you consider the impact his presence had on the emerging representation of African-Americans in popular culture. Now that The CW is giving the superhero his own show, the new incarnation has a lot to live up to. (more…)

For all the attempts that FOX has made, they’ve never quite managed to kick off a successful Fantastic Four movie series. While there are a lot of fans out there who don’t really mind that – after all, it’s not as if there aren’t already a hell of a lot of Marvel characters on the big screen right now – it does mean that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is missing some of its bigger characters. Wizard ranked Doctor Doom, the Four’s archenemy, as the fourth greatest villain in its 100 Greatest Villain of All Time. But he hasn’t spent much time on the big screen because of the consistently failure of his superhero counterparts. (more…)
