Charlie Cox might be best known as Tristan Thorne from a few years back in the movie ‘Stardust.’Though I’ve never seen it, I also understand the he’s done a few seasons of ‘Boardwalk Empire.’ Google pics of him carousing around Hollywood with long hair and a goofy grin don’t really put me in the mind of Matt Murdock, and I’ve seen lots of comments on various sites that don’t like Marvel choosing him for the role. I don’t know much about the guy, but I’m still on board with the upcoming NetflixDaredevil’ series because of all the reasons. But I still depend on photos like these to help me feel comfortable with this actor playing one of my comic book faves. I’m still thinking about it. How about you? Wanna see this guy with a cane, wearing dark shades? (more…)

Out of all the episodes in this “Fall of The Ponds” arc in Doctor Who I’m hoping “The Power of Three” proves to be the most interesting. I mean, it surely looks intriguing, doesn’t it? What with its weird little boxes, the return of Rory’s dad (Mark Williams) and U.N.I.T., plus the rather on the nose allusion of the “Three” referring to The Doctor (Matt Smith), Amy (Karen Gillan), and Rory (Arthur Darvill). At least that’s my theory. I’m just unsure how we’ll see that power manifested and what its consequences will be.

Here’s Karen and Arthur introducing “The Power of Three,”

Really feels like the web series Pond Life was a short primer for this episode, doesn’t it? Here’s a slew of new photos released as well,


The Doctor and the Ponds puzzle an unlikely invasion of Earth, as millions of sinister black cubes arrive overnight, almost like presents falling from the sky.

But what are they, what’s inside them and most importantly, who sent them? With the international community at a loss, it’s left to the Doctor to unearth who is behind the mystery.

Guest starring Mark Williams, Steven Berkoff and Jemma Redgrave, written by Chris Chibnall, executive produced by Steven Moffat and Caroline Skinner, directed by Douglas Mackinnon, and produced by Marcus Wilson.

“The Power of Three” airs this Saturday on BBC America at 9pm ET.

I leave you with this video of adorable, four-and-a-half-year-old Lindalee Rose adorably recapping the most recent episode of Doctor Who, “A Town Called Mercy.” It’s really, really cute. As in so cute I couldn’t watch the whole thing for fear my teeth would start rotting. Check it out, and also make sure you check out our Nerd Bastard’s reviews of Doctor Who, from the not nearly as adorable but no less gleefully excited by Doctor Who, Matthew Jackson.

With the release of The Avengers a little more than a month away, the hype machine is kicking into overdrive. Today we’ve got some freshly released behind the scenes pics, news on the premier, and a cool contest that you will want to get in on. Let’s dive in.

That’s the first of the new pics from the set of The Avengers. Man does Joss Whedon wear that shirt a lot — still, the shield certainly draws the eye away from that. Mostly these pics show Whedon in “action” dynamically directing, which means he is talking to the actors — now you know why there are no director trading cards. The rest of the pics will be sprinkled throughout the rest of this story. (more…)
