Heath Will Return To The Walking Dead

41 minutes ago

Cast your minds back to The Walking Dead season 7, specifically episode six. While on the road, Tara and Heath were attacked by a horde of zombies in their camper. Though Tara escaped, she eventually made her way back to find evidence that Heath was able to get away, though he was nowhere to be found. And that, readers, is the last time we saw the character.

Naturally, fans have been wanting to know what happened to him ever since, so it’s a relief to know, then, that Heath has been promised to return to The Walking Dead at some point in the future. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, showrunner Scott Gimple said:

“We definitely have not seen the last of Heath, period. I will say that. I don’t mean to disappoint the Heathies. He will be on the show. He will be within The Walking Dead again.”

Synopses For Legends Of Tomorrow And Arrow Season Premieres Arrive

1 hour ago

With the next “super season” set to commence in just under three weeks, it’s only understandable that The CW pulls out all the stops in order to assure that viewers come back for another helping. And usually when we’re that close to any specific episode airing, synopses are bound to surface online, effectively bringing some minor spoilers along with them. In this case, that rule applies to fan favorites Legends Of Tomorrow and Arrow.

First, let’s talk about Legends of Tomorrow because it’ll be the first of these two shows to air. In “Aruba-Con,” we’ll see the Waverider crew bereft of the ship they call home and, apparently, carrying on with life in this broken timeline. Seriously, with dinosaurs running amok in the streets and Julius Caesar being a beach bully, I’m not sure if I’d be able to even sleep, so how do they manage? »

7 Superhero Movies With Terrific Plot Twists

1 hour ago

Plot twists have been a staple of film since the silent days of cinema. They’re a method of jump-starting a narrative that might have grown too predictable, or simply providing a new take on things that changes the audience’s perspective.

It should come as no surprise, then, that these tropes have been embraced by the sub-genre known to many as comic book movies. These are among some of the biggest blockbusters ever produced, and making each and every one of them memorable is a difficult task, even for talented filmmakers.

As we pointed out in another list, sometimes the attempts at a good twist fail, resulting in the plot crashing and burning. But there are many other writers who are more than capable of creating intricate stories, and these have gone on to stick in our heads.

So, without further delay, let’s look at seven terrific plot »

Synopses For Supergirl And The Flash Season Premieres Released

1 hour ago

With the next “super season” set to commence in just under three weeks, it’s only understandable that The CW pulls out all the stops in order to assure that viewers come back for another helping. And usually when we’re that close to any specific episode airing, synopses are bound to surface online, effectively bringing some minor spoilers along with them. In this case, that rule applies to fan favorites Supergirl and The Flash.

First, let’s talk about Supergirl, since that particular show will be the first from the Arrowverse to make its fall debut. In “Girl of Steel,” we’ll see the titular heroine face the existential crisis we’ve been expecting ever since the first footage from season 3 was shown at San Diego Comic-Con back in July. Still, we don’t expect her to be down in the dumps for too long since more recent promos »

Arrow Season 6 Photos Tease Black Canary Vs. Black Siren Battle

2 hours ago

The CW have released a new batch of promo images for the Arrow season 6 premiere, “Fallout”, which arrives on our screens in just a few weeks. Fans will recall that season 5 ended on a massive cliffhanger, as most of Team Arrow appeared to die in an explosion orchestrated by Prometheus on Lian Yu. While these photos are careful not to reveal anything we didn’t know before about who survived, they do tease an exciting battle to come in the premiere.

It seems Dinah Drake’s Black Canary and Earth-2 Laurel Lance Aka Black Siren will have a rematch in the upcoming episode. By the looks of things, Black Siren has returned from Lian Yu looking to make a mark on Star City’s underworld and has acquired some henchmen to do her bidding. The photos also showcase Dinah’s new costume, which was first unveiled a few weeks back. »

You Need To See This Incredible Avengers: Infinity War Poster

2 hours ago

Even though Avengers: Infinity War is just eight months away now, Marvel hasn’t really revealed anything about the movie so far. A couple of posters leaked from this summer’s Comic-Con, as did some footage (though that was quickly removed), but that’s about it. At least one fan is tired of waiting around, though, and has instead created their own dream poster for the movie – and it really is something.

Based off the classic Infinity Gauntlet cover from the comics, the colourful cosmic image is focused around Thanos the Mad Titan and his all-powerful Infinity Gauntlet, which we know he’ll finally get to use very soon after years of teasing. Surrounding him are the assembled heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and you can check it out along with a few other posters that’ve surfaced recently in the gallery below.

The Scarecrow Attacks In Images From Next Week’s Episode Of Gotham

2 hours ago

After turning in an impressive season premiere last night, the cast and crew of Gotham look to keep the ball rolling with next week’s episode, “A Dark Knight: The Fear Reaper.” From that foreboding title, you can probably surmise that the Scarecrow will play a huge role, no doubt confounding Jim Gordon and the rest of the Gcpd at every turn.

Had you tuned in last night, then you’d have seen Charlie Tahan return as a young Jonathan Crane, effectively reprising his role from season 1. For the wealth of the episode, he was a broken, scared child. But, near the end, he emerged as possibly the most comic book accurate version of Scarecrow we’ve seen in live action to date. Well, at least when it comes to appearance. Needless to say, his debut has thus far been met with much positive fan reaction online.

The Punisher Premiere Window Seemingly Narrowed To October

3 hours ago

This week alone, The Punisher has unearthed blistering trailers, blood-drenched promos and new stills designed to place Frank Castle firmly on the warpath.

But for all of the hustle and bustle, a firm release date continues to elude Jon Bernthal’s ferocious vigilante. The Punisher will debut sometime before the year’s end, that much we know, but when it comes to a specific due date, Marvel and Netflix have been unusually tight-lipped ever since its first Defender-less solo series was confirmed.

It is, of course, a carefully crafted ruse to generate interest in The Punisher, though we imagine a fair amount of Netflix subscribers already have one eye trained on Castle’s standalone saga. Such a strategy is not without its faults, though, as there’s always a risk of some anonymous insider leaking the show’s release window ahead of schedule – or, as this case with Total Film, »

The Terminator Reboot Will Reportedly Ignore Genisys; Schwarzenegger Hints At New Title

3 hours ago

The Terminator is going back to the well.

James Cameron’s prized sci-fi series, one that has churned out five feature films to varying degrees of success since ’84, entered an unscheduled hiatus soon after the release of Genisys, which drastically underwhelmed across the board. Indeed, Alan Taylor’s planned trilogy-starter was such a dud that Paramount Pictures decided to scrap the series altogether, instead spearheading a hard reset with Tim Miller (Deadpool) and Cameron himself.

Fast forward to September of 2017 and The Terminator is fast beginning to take shape. Not only is Arnie back, back, back as that iconic cybernetic organism, but we’re also learning that Linda Hamilton has climbed aboard to reprise as Sarah Connor. And as if that wasn’t exciting enough, it’s being reported that Miller’s Terminator redo won’t acknowledge the botched Genisys whatsoever.

Brie Larson Has Her Sights Set On Directing A Marvel Movie

3 hours ago

Thanks to giant franchises – like Star Wars and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, specifically – we’ve now become accustomed to the ‘Lack Of Female Directors Explanation’ that’s so often trotted out by senior production executives: ‘Hiring a woman director is a priority for us, but we have to find one who wants to do it, and has experience before we hand them a giant movie.’ This is a frustrating response to calls for more women at the helm, not least because the same criteria doesn’t always apply to male directors hired by these studios. Now, though, it seems that Captain Marvel star Brie Larson could be the perfect answer to that standard delaying tactic.

The Academy Award winning actress has just made her feature length directorial debut with Unicorn Store. The independent comedy – written by Samantha McIntyre – has been highly praised by audiences and critics alike, following its screenings »

Polaris Sports A Fresh Look In First Photos From The Gifted Season 1, Episode 2

4 hours ago

Much digital ink has been spilled regarding The Gifted, Fox and Marvel’s small-screen drama involving the Struckers, a regular ol’ American family who soon discover that their two children – namely Lauren (Gotham’s Natalie Alyn Lind) and Andy (Percy Hynes White) – boast mutant abilities. Dangerous abilities.

That places them between the crosshairs of some nefarious organizations, who want nothing more but to round up any and all mutants and subject them to gruesome, unspeakable tests. And so, in order to protect their children, Reed and Caitlin Strucker – played here by Stephen Moyer and Amy Acker, respectively – take a leaf out of Logan‘s book and go on the run.

Granted, The Gifted is yet to release, but those fortunate few who have already caught a screening of its premiere episode, “eXposed,” have lumped praise on the X-Men spinoff, and in a bid to keep that momentum ticking over, a »

Will Opens The Door To Another Dimension In Latest Stranger Things Season 2 Poster

4 hours ago

Young Will Byers opens the door to another dimension in the latest, downright creepy poster for Stranger Things season 2.

Unveiled via Twitter, below you’ll see the haunted Will (Noah Schnapp) essentially staring into the abyss, as that tentacled sky-demon looms overhead. Dubbed the Shadow Monster (Thessalhydra?) by series creators and showrunners Matt and Ross Duffer, this is another sure-fire sign that the youngest Byers will be suffering a potent case of Ptsd come October. And if you had spent days wasting away in the Upside-Down, wouldn’t you?

Yes, the Demogorgon may have been reduced to ashes – at the expense of Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven, it seems – but the Duffers have vowed to unleash a horde of new monsters in Stranger Things season 2. And judging by this all-new poster, it would seem Will Byers has become something of a walking conduit of the Upside-Down, given his dreams are plagued with blood-red, »

Fan-Made Tribute Pits It’s Pennywise Against The Clown Prince Of Crime

5 hours ago

Pennywise and the Joker are undoubtedly two very different, yet equally terrifying clowns.

Indeed, It actor Bill Skarsgard has gone on record in the past to differentiate Stephen King’s shape-shifting abomination from the Clown Prince of Crime, but that hasn’t stopped one dedicated fan from compiling a tribute video that pits Pennywise against DC’s cackling villain.

First spotted by the folks at ComicBook.com, YouTube user Mightyraccoon!, who knows a thing or two about brilliantly executed crossovers, has created a world in which the Joker from Rocksteady’s beloved Arkham series confronts Pennywise, and essentially presents a challenge to King’s otherworldly entity. If nothing else, it’s a neat piece of fan service, one that piggybacks on the incredible, record-breaking success of New Line and Andy Muschietti’s It reboot.

As of this writing, It and The Exorcist are currently neck-and-neck on the box office charts with around $230 million apiece – domestically, »

Finn Jones Is Back In The Dojo Training For Iron Fist Season 2

5 hours ago

Having only just gone and saved New York City from catastrophe – at the expense of The Hand and Midland Circle, no less – one might assume that the Defenders deserve a vacation, or some other form of respite to take the load off and, ultimately, recover from the events that rocked the Big Apple.

Turns out that’s not the case, though – far from it, in fact – as Marvel and Netflix are currently spearheading new instalments of Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. All three standalone series are expected to premiere sometime in 2018, and though the Powers That Be took a little longer than expected to issue the go-ahead, a second season of Iron Fist is also in the works.

Having drafted in new blood in Raven Metzner (Elektra), who takes over showrunner duties from the outgoing Scott Buck (Inhumans), Iron Fist season 2 is said to be targeting a production start in “four or five months. »

Guardians Director James Gunn Believes Marvel’s Inhumans Is Beyond Saving

6 hours ago

Inhumans may not be cancelled yet, but even James Gunn believes Marvel and ABC’s family drama is beyond saving.

The Guardians of the Galaxy director recently hosted one of his regular Facebook Q&As, fielding questions about Vol. 3, Marvel’s current slate, and everything in between. When asked about the chances of him swooping in to “save” Inhumans, though, Gunn joked that, “it does not look like there is much saving left for the Inhumans.” Ouch.

There are, of course, certain logistics that prevent James Gunn from simply waltzing onto the set of Marvel and ABC’s eight-part series. For starters, the Marvel Cinematic Universe and its TV counterpart have been placed on two separate tracks, meaning that aside from some subtle nods here and there, shows like The Defenders and Inhumans have been hatched under Marvel’s TV arm and are therefore out of Gunn’s sphere of influence. »

Rumored Snoke/Leia Scene Won’t Take Place In Star Wars: The Last Jedi After All

6 hours ago

General Leia Organa needn’t worry about crossing paths with Supreme Leader Snoke.

At least, that’s according to Andy Serkis, who is all set to reprise as the First Order mega-villain come December. Indeed, as one of the lesser-known facets of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Snoke has piqued the curiosity of Star Wars fans for months – years, even – who have been left to dissect every little detail that surfaces online. That fascination reached a whole new level earlier this month thanks to Force Friday II, which brought forth new details on Snoke’s icy home planet, a potential resurrection, and that über Star Destroyer known as the Supremacy.

Stretching 40km across, it’s a super-sized command center on which Andy Serkis’ antagonist governs the First Order, and though there have been signs that Finn and Rose – John Boyega and Kelly Marie Tran, respectively – will be dispatched on a »

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Officially Wraps Production

7 hours ago

Breathe. Just…breathe, Star Wars fans, for The Last Jedi has officially wrapped production.

Word comes by way of Rian Johnson’s official Instagram feed, where the writer-director posted a suitably epic selfie to announce that post-production is now complete. The black-and-white photo, embedded below, came bearing the caption: “Aaaand that’s a wrap on the hardest working post-production team in the galaxy. Going to miss sitting in dark rooms with these goobers.”

Johnson has been fairly active on Twitter when it comes to Star Wars: The Last Jedi, relaying pics from the edit bay along with a subtle tease of the sequel’s opening crawl. Yes, after Lucasfilm did away with the franchise’s iconic opener for Rogue One – part of an overarching plan to draw a line between the anthology movies (see: Han Solo) and the core Skywalker saga – the crawl will be back, back, back on December 15th. »

The Walking Dead Rings In 100 Episodes With Celebratory Portraits

7 hours ago

In exactly one month’s time, The Walking Dead will make history.

After 99 episodes of thrills, spills and apocalyptic chills, series stalwart Greg Nicotero will usher in season 8’s premiere and, by effect, The Walking Dead‘s 100th episode. Suddenly that scene in Atlanta of Rick trapped in a tank crawling with Walkers feels like a lifetime ago.

But in order to commemorate this wonderful occasion, Entertainment Weekly has gone ahead and posted a fresh batch of candid, beautifully stylish portraits in which the show’s mainstays – namely Andrew Lincoln (Rick), Norman Reedus (Daryl), Danai Gurira (Michonne), Lauren Cohan (Maggie) and Melissa McBride (Carol) – get the celebrations underway. As this is more of a spotlight on the actors, rather than their on-screen counterparts, don’t expect much in the way of story, but the gallery below does serve as a nice little time capsule ahead of The Walking Dead raising »

Gotham Season 4 Review

16 hours ago

This review is based on the season premiere.

From the start, a common complaint about Gotham has been that it’s “a Batman show without Batman.” And even as a supporter of the series, I have to admit that position is warranted. But now, we’ve made a huge leap forward, putting it in similar territory to Smallville seasons 8-10 – which I referred to as “the proto-Superman years” – because, like it or not, we’ve now entered the proto-Batman era, baby.

With that, I’m not going to waste time addressing the elephant in the room: The fact that Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) is already putting on a mask and dispensing vigilante justice three years after his parents were gunned down. I firmly believe the producers have decided to allow him to split some wigs because not only are the amount of stories you can tell involving young Bruce extremely limited, »

Final Jigsaw Poster Will Give You The Chills

18 hours ago

Are you ready for Jigsaw?

It is, in essence, the eighth entry into Lionsgate’s time-honored Saw franchise, one that’s coming by way of directing duo Michael and Peter Spierig. Best known for their work on Daybreakers, the Spierig siblings are still relatively new when it comes to Hollywood’s horror scene, but when asked to describe how they approached the cult series, Michael Spierig hinted that Jigsaw is “Saw for 2017.” That means it’s safe to expect more nightmare fuel and wildly inventive demented traps than you can shake a pig’s mask at, and though Lionsgate’s franchise has fallen by the wayside in recent years, in 2017, Halloween belongs to Jigsaw. And long may he reign.

Mind you, given that Tobin Bell’s sick, twisted psychopath bit the bullet in Saw III, it looks certain that John Kramer has gathered together a band of disciples to continue »
