…Batgirl! Kidding. (Hopefully.) The recent announcement that the Academy Award-winning actress Holly Hunter was joining the cast of the Man of Steel sequel (AKA: Batman Vs Superman) understandably dredged up the curiosity of fans wondering who the venerable Hunter might be playing in the comic book movie.

MTV has enjoyed tremendous success with its series version of Teen Wolf, despite the fact that, in essence, it has precious little to do with the Michael J. Fox film of the same name. Can the cable network catch lightning in a bottle with Scream, a new show based on the Kevin Williamson-written/Wes Craven-directed franchise of the same name? Leaving that aside, it seems that Scream the series is getting closer to reality with the release of character descriptions for the main cast members and the news that Craven himself will continue his Scream-streak in the director’s chair.

I’m going to assume you’ve all seen, or are at least basically aware of the plot to 1992′s Terminator 2: Judgment Day–makes my life that much easier.
Little Danny Dyson, son of Skynet inventor Miles Dyson, was last seen being discreetly shuffled off by John Connor, to spare his innocent young eyes the sight of Ahnold’s gnarly robot arm.

Regardless, only one of them is in talks for a role in Edgar Wright’s upcoming adaptation of Marvel’s Ant-Man. Hint hint: it’s the one with the better teeth.

Both of the Jurassic Park sequels so far have featured at least two characters from the original Steven Spielberg film. In the case of the upcoming fourth sequel, Jurassic World, it seemed as though filmmakers were going out of there way to not have anyone from any previous Jurassic film. Fair enough, it’s been 13 years since the last movie, and a lot can happen in that time, it may be enough to say that Dr. Alan Grant and Co. are just getting to old for that dinosaur $#!%. But in a new interview, director Colin Trevorrow let it be known that there are indeed some known faces in his film, or at least one anyway. (more…)
If Adam Driver thought that being the on-again/off-again flame of the main character in the HBO hit series Girls was a star-maker, just wait until he ascends to the actual stars. After months of speculation, guess work, lies, inneuendo and some damn fine manipulations of the Ouija board, Driver is close to being the first, official cast member of J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars Episode VII. (more…)
As the Television Critics Association Winter press tour winds down, we get some juicy (in nerd terms) pieces of new information about Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Of course, one of the most frequently heard complaints about the show (and there are many) is that S.H.I.E.L.D. doesn’t pay enough lip service to the comic books.
