DC is poised to continue their fantastic animated film run with an adaptation of the wildly successful, equally divisive Killing Joke. Now, arguably the most famous Joker, Mark Hamill, has expressed his intentions to be in on the Killing Joke himself, lending some real star power to upcoming animated feature. Since one of the key folks behind the incredible Batman: The Animated Series, Bruce Timm, is leading the new film, it seems more than likely that Hamill could rejoin the ranks after all. We’ve got Hamill’s enthusiastic tweet here for you to check out for yourself. (more…)
Star Wars being at Comic-Con was going to be a pretty big deal, no question about it. Just how big of a day it was going to be, though, was perhaps grossly under estimated.
The line for Hall H snaked around the the entire convention complex with over 6000 people hoping to get in on the Friday July 10th panel. A lot of fans had slept outside the venue overnight just to ensure their entry into the Hall, with some fans even having camped out as early as Wednesday evening. Was all this waiting worth it? Yes, yes it was! (more…)
If you were watching last night’s episode of The Flash, Tricksters, for any other reason that seeing Mark Hamill reprise his role from the 90’s Flash series, you may have been watching for the wrong reasons. That being said, many came for Hamill but they stayed for the absolutely wonderful episode that the original Trickster brought along with him. As always, spoilers ahead. (more…)
The February 17th episode “Fallout” was the last time we had any new Flash. We won’t see the scarlet speedster again until March 17th. But all good things come to those who wait, and good things are a coming – er, well, if you consider a bundle of bad guys “good” that is. The 17th episode, “Out of Time.” will bring us the new Weather Wizard. On the 24th we get the return of Captain Cold and the introduction of the Golden Glider in “Rogue Time”. The grand daddy of them, The Trickster, will show himself on March 31st played by none other than Mark Hamill from the 90’s Flash series.
This latest trailer introduces this rogues gallery of villains. Check it out below and laugh manically. (more…)
It consisted of seven shots and was only a minute-and-a-half long, but the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was one of the biggest videos to hit the web last year. Given that it’s already been seen hundreds of millions of times, you can only imagine what kind of business the next trailer will do, especially if it features a more substantial look at the plot and characters, particularly the returning cast of the original Star Wars trilogy. Well, for your reading and spoiling pleasure below, you can now enjoy what sounds like the new trailer description for the second look at The Force Awakens, as the year that broke nerdom marches on.

Word is making its way around the Internet that Pendleton Ward is ready to take his beloved series Adventure Time to the big screen. That’s right, Finn, Jake, Princess Bubblegum and the rest are going full Hollywood Feature. (more…)
The Flash returns tonight (fiiiiiiiinally) on the CW, and while the new episode called “Return of the Rogues” refers specifically to Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) and Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell), the rogue that really has fans curious is The Man in the Yellow Suit, AKA: Reverse-Flash. Who is he? Why did he – apparently – go back in time to kill Barry Allen’s mom and frame his dad for it? Both good questions, and ones that I think will be answered to some degree by the end of the first season. Every fan has their theory, but now The Flash himself, actor Grant Gustin, says to throw those theories out the window because even he was surprised by what’s coming with this season’s end. (more…)
The centerpiece of the new Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens, at least in some quarters, is the return of the original cast members from the first three Star Wars movies. The role they play, and how big that role is, has been the subject of much rumor and speculation since it was announced that Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker would return for The Force Awakens. But now, new reports are saying that for those waiting patiently to get their first look at those returning actors in their old Wars roles will have to wait all the way to opening night to see them. Meanwhile, Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, is talking about how it felt the first time we climbed on board the Millennium Falcon again. (more…)
Mark Hamill is a tough act to follow, especially when he’s in full-blown super-villain mode, but Devon Graye is going to give it a try. The actor, who’s probably best known for playing the teenage version of Michael C. Hall‘s titular serial killer on Showtime‘s Dexter, has been cast as one of two versions of The Trickster along with Hamill on an upcoming episode of The CW‘s The Flash. The Flash has been pretty sharp with some of its super-villain casting, primary among them is Wentworth Miller who plays Captain Cold, who will be plaguing the Fastest Man Alive (Grant Gustin) in the first episode of 2015 airing on Tuesday. But while the upcoming Trickster episode is more compelling for its Hamill appearance, casting Graye as Trickster: The Next Generation should definitely be of (secondary) interest. (more…)
For years now, Mark Hamill fans have been waiting to see him reprise a role that defined his career. As we get even closer to that dream being realized, HitFix is reporting that fans will be able to see him reprise another popular role of Hamill’s – this one a rather zany comic book villain. Now, “zany comic book villain” is definitely a bit vague, considering Hamill has played several comic book baddies over the years, all with a touch of zaniness. Sorry, Bluntman and Chronic fans, we are not talking about Cocknocker here. If HitFix is to be believed, Hamill will be reprising his role as The Trickster on an upcoming episode of CW’s The Flash.
