DC has been no stranger to great television and that is due to the amazing characters they have developed off the pages of comics and onto the small screen. The likes of Oliver Queen, Barry Allen, and more have been lighting up the airwaves, but have you ever stopped to consider the dangers they pose to regular folks? That’s the premise for Powerless debuting on NBC this year. Powerless follows run-of-the-mill human, Emily Locke, as she begins working for a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises (yes, THAT Wayne) that develops specialized products used to make normal people feel a little safer around all the metas flying/running around.
Sounds interesting enough, right? However, the trailer for Powerless just dropped and, well, let’s just say it doesn’t lead with a strong first impression. (more…)

Everything you love about porn movies… without the sex. Check out their porn-tastic performances below. (more…)
It was 14 years ago that Firefly premiered on Fox, and almost 14 years go that it was cancelled. You would never guess that if you looked around the room for the Alan Tudyk Q&A at Fan Expo Canada. Thousands of fans crammed themselves into Room 102, many of them in Kaylee coveralls or Jayne hats, all eager to hear from the man that piloted the starship Serenity for 14 episodes and one movie. Even though Tudyk has a big role in the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, it was predominately Firefly memories that the crowd wanted to talk about. (more…)

While doing some press for his new web series Con Man, Alan Tudyk made a few comments about his time working on the set of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. While his role on the movie is a closely guarded secret that no one has been able to pry out of Tudyk yet, his comments do offer an interesting perspective on how these latest Star Wars movies are being made.

“I am a leaf on the wind, watch how I“… successfully crowdfund, write, direct, produce and star in a loosely autobiographical webseries about a cult science fiction actor who tours the convention circuit. Oh Mister Alan Tudyk, you quirky treasure of a nerd, you had us Steve The Pirate. (more…)
They are two best friends, Firefly alum, and probably the only two guys that can get both nerdy boys and girls to drop their underoos with burning man desire. They are Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion. These two well known stars of TV and film have been around the Convention circuit offering their stories, egos, and devilishly handsome looks to elated fans. Now they’re now using their experience with cons to transform the weird and wonderful world of conventions into a web series. It’s called Con Man and will be written, directed and star Tudyk with Fillion co-starring as well as producing.
The series focuses on the actors’ experiences after their show’s cancellation, as they make their way into the convention circuit. As Tudyk explains in the video below, outsiders often think that science fiction fans are the weirdest part about a convention when, in truth, the strangest characters can be found behind the scenes.
Already they have their Firefly cast members Sean Maher and Gina Torres along for the ride as well as James Gunn, Seth Green, Felicia Day and Amy Acker, just to start. (more…)

Wonder Woman’s been getting a lot of press lately, and unfortunately, not always for the best reasons. The casting of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in Warner Bros.’ Man of Steel sequel was met with a mixed response at best. Then there were those rumors of Diana no longer being an Amazon but another Kryptonian descendent, which thankfully turned out to be false. Oh! And then the CW scrapped their plans for a Wonder Woman television show. With all the recent bad news for Wondy, it’s nice to have a clip where she simply does what she does best: kicks butt. (more…)
