Government conspiracies, kids with supernatural telikinetic powers and a monster that can glide effortlessly between worlds, Stranger Things has everything a show needs to get people talking. It’s all mystery and magic, intrigue and action. The first season built a world that viewers fell in love with and would happily explore for many, many seasons more. Even if none had ever been commissioned, it seems only fair to assume that the fan fiction alone could’ve catered to people’s cravings for more. Luckily, Netflix has promised at least one more season and fans cannnot contain their excitement. (more…)
The word is out that The Walking Dead writer Robert Kirkman and artist Tony Moore have reached an out of court agreement concerning their dispute over the comic book and television show.
Earlier this year Moore filed suit claiming, quite vehemently, that Kirkman intentionally deceived him into signing a contract transferring rights to Kirkman so that Kirkman could more easily sell the television rights to The Walking Dead. Moore further stated that he had not received royalty payments due him from the comic and television show. According to the Hollywood Reporter, “The litigation featured no shortage of inflammatory words.”
From their article:
Moore called Kirkman “a proud liar and fraudster” in the lawsuit. Kirkman responded to Moore’s claims by saying “the lawsuit is ridiculous” and that Moore had been paid for his work as a penciler and inker on the first six issues of the Walking Dead comic book.
Now though, the matter appears to be closed, with Kirkman’s reps issuing a statement to several outlets including THR:
“Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore are pleased to jointly announce that they have reached an amicable agreement in their respective lawsuits and all parties have settled the entire matter to everyone’s mutual satisfaction. Neither side will be discussing any details but will instead happily and productively spend their time focused on their own work and move on in their lives.”
So, that appears to be that.

Faster than a speeding bullet, the rumor that Hans Zimmer was taking on the score for the next Superman movie flew through the Internet last week. Part of the reason probably came from the fact that Christopher Nolan is producing the new Superman movie. It’s not much of a leaping bound to link to Zimmer, who did the music for Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and Inception, all Chris Nolan movies.
Now Zimmer is expected to take on the score for the third Batman sequel, The Dark Knight Rises, but as for Superman, Zimmer says the rumours aren’t true, and have bounced around the Internet because his long time publicist Ronni Chasen was murdered three weeks ago.
Below is the interview with Zimmer by The Holloywood Reporter’s (THR) Kevin Cassidy.
TheHollywoodReporter has announced:
Christopher Nolan is auctioning off a set visit to “Inception,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio, to help raise funds for the nonprofit Pablove Foundation, which supports pediatric cancer research and treatment. The winning bidder of the eBay auction, which ends Sept. 30, gets to have lunch with the director next month and observe him work. For more information or to bid, visit eBay.
It may not be Batman 3, but hanging out with the most sought after director in the business? Sounds badass to me, and I’m sure he’ll answer any Batman questions you should have…
