When Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace came out, despite your feelings about the film, there was one thing we could all agree on: Darth Maul was awesome! Why? Because he had a double-edged lightsaber, yo! Too simplistic? Maybe, but it looks like in the new animated series Star Wars: Rebels, the creators are upping the game by giving the villainous Inquisitor not just a lightsaber, and not just a double-lightsaber, but a spinning double-lightsaber. Taking bad ass to a whole new level, the blow clip introduces The Inquisitor (voiced by Jason Isaacs) and and his twirling weapon of hot death.

You might recall an enthusiastic push from fans prior to the casting of Andrew Garfield as The Amazing Spider-Man to give the role to Community co-star Donald Glover. You might even remember Glover egging that campaign on, and wearing Spider-Man pajamas in the second season premiere of Community. True, Glover didn’t get the part, but when the nerd gods close a door, they also open a window. And with that, we get the news that Glover has been cast to give voice to Ultimate universe Spidey Miles Morales in the new season of the Disney XD series Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors. (The series is being re-named for its third season.) (more…)

Zeb Kicks @$$ in New ‘Star Wars: Rebels’ Short

The more I see of Star Wars: Rebels, the more I get excited about it. I wish I could have said the same about The Clone Wars animated series, but while I will admit that it got better with time, that initial taste offered in movie theaters left a lot to be desired.

In “Entanglement,” the new character Zeb proves that while the Force may not be with him, he can definitely still use force. (more…)
