The Wire

Fans of the The Walking Dead have been witness to some new faces and shocking conclusions this season – and we’ve only just crossed the halfway point. Seeing as how the series has diverted from the comics there are some notable differences, but one fan favorite from the comics will be making his way to AMC.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, series creator Robert Kirkman teased the introduction of this new but already well-known character, saying:

“There’s a new character added. A big deal fan favorite from the comic book is introduced into the show in this episode, so be on the lookout for that,”

Some sci-fi and fantasy stars have joined forces to fight this spoiler issue. They want you to stop ruining their shows. Well, not just their shows, but TV in general. Spoilers are running rampant, and they’re making it hard to enjoy television. So these actors have come together to put an end to spoilers once and for all.

Over at College Humor, they’ve produced a special PSA to raise awareness about spoilers. They’ve gotten out of control, and we have to stop them. Watch as stars from True Blood, The Walking Dead, Heroes, Dexter, The Wire and Battlestar Galactica give tips on how to nip unwanted spoilers in the bud.

When visiting websites (like this one), Nelsan Ellis (Lafayette, True Blood) says spoiler alerts are considerate but shouldn’t be expected. So go online at your own risk. Also, if someone spoils a show for you, you can get revenge by ruining something for them. But only if it relates to TV. Don’t get personal.

The man who would be Cage ... and Blade

The man who would be Cage ... and Blade

Idris Elba, best known as Russell ‘Stringer’ Bell from the television show, The Wire, seems to be Marvel‘s new go-to man.

Elba, who is already playing Heimdall (the all-seeing sentry of Asgard) in Thor, recently told TotalFilm that he has signed a multi-picture deal with Marvel.

I have a picture deal with [Marvel]. I can’t tell you much about that, but I can tell you I’ll be back. … I wouldn’t mind having a crack at bringing Blade back, personally. There’s a couple of things there that they have. Luke Cage is … very interesting.

All of this is coming right after the news that he will be playing a warrior monk in the upcoming Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengence.

Do you think that he would be a good choice for Marvel? Or, is he flirting with over-exposure, and should those parts go to other actors (like the Old Spice spokesperson, Isaiah Mustafa).

Check below the jump for a mini-biography on Blade and Luke Cage.



You look out the window and see the night sky is an interesting kaleidoscope of purple, gold, and green; the dark swirling clouds threaten storms of untold proportions. An alien mother ship hangs ominously over the burning city in the distance, spewing laser beams and attack crafts to the ground. The zombies outside beat a steady rhythm on your front door…wait a minute, is that Betty White? In the next room the TV anchor is droning on about the meteor headed toward earth bound for impact in eight days; as if it mattered. You grab the remote and flip through the channels, the meteor . . . zombies . . . aliens . . . man-eating frogs . . . zombies . . . Jersey Shore . . . meteor . . . tornadoes . . . some kind of western about four weird guys on horses . . . yeah, nothing on, at least that much hasn’t changed.

Not much else to do but go nail another board over that window, grab your baseball bat, a bottle of Tequila, your favorite snacks, and watch:
