Check out Marvel's Lance Hunter in a new photo from 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2, as well as new looks at Skye and a synopsis for the season!
Yesterday saw 'Arrow' season 3 opening its quiver a bit with the first photos from October 8 premiere "The Calm," as well as a sexy new trailer for Oliver and Felicity. As it turns out, photos were only the tip of the arrow, as The CW has released a brand-new full-length season 3 trailer teasing more Olicity action, Arsenal, the Atom, Vertigo, Komodo and more!
With its September 22 premiere nearly upon us, we non-spoilerly break down the strengths and weakness of FOX's new Batman prequel drama 'Gotham.' Is this new take on the Dark Knight and his hometown the origin story we deserve, but not the one we need right now? Our full review inside!
As 'Batman vs. Superman' very clearly teases the upcoming 'Justice League' crossover (the subtitle is 'Dawn of Justice' after all), we all sort of assumed that The Rock's long-teased 'Shazam!' movie would fit into that blueprint somehow. Even The Rock himself tweeted the art above of his character, Black Adam, fighting both Shazam and Superman. But, now it seems that 'Shazam!' will be operating independently from the rest of the other DC superheroes at Warner Bros.
It's been a day for DC TV to be sure, but nothing quite gets geek blood flowing like a new look at 'Arrow' season 3! Check out "The Calm" with our first new photos from the October 8 season premiere, plus a brand-spankin' new teaser that ships some major "Ollicity" movement, and reveals a major character's violent new path!
DC certainly upped its live-action TV stock for the 2014-15 season, adding 'The Flash,' 'Gotham' and 'Constantine' to the likes of CW breakout 'Arrow,' but could another major comic character adjacent to the core 'Justice League' find their way into a new TV series? Find out if 'Supergirl' might have her own TV series in the future, with a DC producer already attached!
While cosplayers are present at virtually every major convention celebrating comics, gaming, fantasy and science fiction, it’s Atlanta’s Dragon*Con that has become a a kind of Mecca to which most of the scene’s most dedicated hobbyists and professionals pilgrimage every year. The cosplay phenomenon can be compared to that of b-boying, where the primary inspiration is expressing creativity, performing and earning props from other people like themselves. You can see what we mean in this gallery of fabulous photography by Pat Loika -- convention photo maestro and host of the popular Loikamania podcast -- whose shots from Dragon*Con express just how much fun cosplayers are having without us.
We've always adored 'Arrow''s effort at crowd-pleasing casting, and it seems CW spinoff 'The Flash' has inherited the gift. Following 'Prison Break' alum Wentworth Miller's casting as Captain Cold, onscreen brother Dominic Purcell will also menace 'The Flash' as DC villain Heat Wave, reuniting the two stars.
As the unofficial mascot of the Marvel cinematic universe (he's pretty much Mickey Mouse to this corner of the Disney empire), Downey Jr.'s words and opinions feel like they carry a lot of weight. So when he chimes in with a comment that's essentially "Yeah, there really should be a female-led superhero movie, huh?", we can't help but feel slightly vindicated for wondering where the heck a 'Black Widow' or even a 'Captain Marvel' movie is.
