Gandalf's sword Glamdring is found welded to the Iron Throne in Game of Thrones!

Image
Reddit user NoMoreHodoring made a fun discovery in the hit HBO show Game of Thrones finding an iconic sword from another franchise on the Iron Throne. The sword in question is Gandalf's sword Glamdring from The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. That is a fantastic Easter egg to find and really cool!

Another Reddit user commented that "directly to the right of that seems to be the Robin of Locksley hilt also!" These are really cool finds and they make me want to look at some high res images and see if I can find any other iconic swords.

Sailor Moon returns this July with an all new series! See the first official image!

Image
Two years ago Toei Animation announced that they would be creating a brand new Sailor Moon series and fans have been waiting patiently. Well all that waiting finally paid off as the first official image of the new series has been released and it it of the main heroine Sailor Moon. This new series will be titled Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal and will start to air in July.






The rather interesting twist to this new series is that it is not a remake or a continuation of the old series. Actually, fans will be treated to an adaptation of the original manga series. Here is a short synopsis that was posted with the official image:
"Usagi Tsukino is a second-year middle school girl who is a little clumsy and a crybaby, but she is full of energy. One day, she meets Luna, a black cat with a crescent moon on her forehead, and she transforms into Sailor Moon, a sailor-uniformed pretty guardian of love and justice! As a chosen guardian of justice, Usagi seems to have a mission to …

Stunt performers prove that films' crazy acrobatic bow and arrow feats could be possible! [video]

Quite often you see archers in films doing some amazing acrobatic jumps while shooting their arrows at the enemies and think to yourself that there is no way that someone would actually be able to do that. Well this group of professional stunt performers have created a great video that will show you that those skills are all real. The performers in the video are Aaron Joshua, Jason Ng, Jim Ng, and Stephen Izzi. In the video you'll see them flip, jump, twist, and spin in every direction as they launch arrows at their targets. We do not see if they are actually hitting a target but the point is that the acrobatic feat is possible. So with lots of practice perhaps they could hit a target with accuracy doing these things. All the same, the video is a lot of fun to watch!

Hulk and Hawkeye are confirmed to have larger roles in Avengers: Age of Ultron!

Image
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has been answering a lot of questions from the press while doing interviews and red carpet events for Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the folks over at JoBlo were able to get some great information concerning our favorite green hero, the Hulk, and SHIELD's resident archer, Hawkeye. The question asked was concerning the whereabouts of Hawkeye's character. The answer may make a lot of fans out there happy. "Part of the fun of Age of Ultron was saying, you’ve seen another Iron Man adventure before, you see another Thor adventure and another Cap adventure, but we haven’t seen the Green Goliath again. So that was important in the characters you haven’t seen – Hulk being one of them and Hawkeye being one of them – Ultron will make up for it. They have very big parts in Age of Ultron." So Kevin Fiege has revealed that both the Hulk and Hawkeye will have bigger roles in the next Avengers film, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and we…

Could this be the new logo for Star Wars: Episode 7?

Image
Few details are confirmed for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode 7 but Yahoo Movies UK may have just stumbled onto a new photo that shows us a new logo for the film. This of course could be one of many logos being considered or even be fake but at the moment we can only speculate on it's validity.

This new logo substitutes the letter "T" for a "7" within the word "STAR" to incorporate that this would be the 7th episode in the franchise. Although the logo works and looks cool, it feels a little wrong to change the iconic logo just for one film.

What do you think? Could this be a real logo that Disney and Lucas Film are looking into? Or is this just a fake image?

DC vs Marvel in a 2016 box office weekend brawl - Batman vs Superman vs Captain America!

Fans were shocked and upset when Warner Bros. and DC pushed back the release date of the "Batman vs Superman" film to May 6, 2016. Things became even more interesting when it was noticed that there was an untitled Marvel film set to be released on this day as well. Marvel president Kevin Feige issued a statement that he would stick to this release date even though it meant that his film would go up against the much anticipated DC film.

When you look at the situation why should Marvel back down and change their release date. They had set it before Warner Bros. decided to push back the "Batman vs Superman" film from July 2015 to May 6, 2016.

Well the wait is over as it has finally been revealed what the untitled Marvel film will be. To fans' surprise, the Marvel film being released on May 6, 2016 is Captain America 3! Rumors are saying that this new film could bring another huge Captain America storyline to the big screen. Could it be "Man Without A Country&…

Cosplayers - let IKEA help organize your messy room! [video]

The life of a cosplayer can get pretty cluttered. My own room/closet is a great example. Well now IKEA wants to help solve all those clutter issues! Check out IKEA Singapore's newest ad that features a cosplayer named Frank and his "organized mess" of a room. "Frank is a civil servant by day, cosplayer by night. His passion for cosplay was taking over his bedroom. Watch how we helped fit his two worlds into one."

Whether or not you like the actual make over is up to your personal tastes, but it is clear that IKEA did a great job at utilizing the space in Frank's room and organizing everything. What a transformation!

(I feel like I should get some money for this advertisement. HA.)

Actor Grant Gustin will be playing Barry Allen, aka the Flash, in the show and is shown wearing the suit below. This new costume was designed by Oscar winning costume designer Colleen Atwood. Atwood also helped design the costume for the Green Arrow on this hit CW show Arrow.

Speaking about the costume, director David Nutter who will be directing the Flash pilot stated,
“I hope the fans who treasure the character are as excited as we are by what costume designer Colleen Atwood has achieved with this latest version of The Flash’s iconic suit." 

Looking at the suit, it is exactly what you would expect a Flash suit to look like. I really like the gold trim and the lightning bolt on the legs. I absolutely love the lightning bolt chest logo and am glad that they kept it in the design. It was also a nice touch that they pu…

Sit back and watch Captain America try to run down the Winter Soldier in this new clip from Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The clip has some nice action in it as Captain America smashes through a building to get to the Winter Soldier but the big moment is at the end.

Image
Check out this fantastic photo of the Eighth Doctor, Paul McGann, standing in full costume (from "The Night of the Doctor") inside the Eleventh Doctor's TARDIS console room! I have to admit that this look amazing. Paul McGann tweeted this image with the caption, “This is my moment.”

"Doctor Who TV" mentions that this was most likely taken during the filming of McGann's minisode "The Night of the Doctor" but it would be really cool to think that this could be from something that fans have not yet seen. Would you like to see more of Paul McGann's Doctor flying around all of time and space?

As more news and footage emerged for Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2, fans became worried with how many villains were going to appear in the film and worried that the film would become to weighed down and suffer because of it. Well the concerns and comments did not fall on deaf ears and Marc Webb finally addressed the issue at South by Southwest.
"I'm going to embrace the spectacle. There was a moment deep in the [first film's] post-production process where a giant lizard smashed through a wall chasing a boy-man in a unitard and I said, 'This is not grounded. I'm not going to be beholden to smallness. I want it to be fantastic, to be big, to command and express that feeling when you're a kid and reading the comics. ... I didn't want to hide or shy away from that." He continued by adding,
"We're obviously familiar with the complaints people had We're very careful to make sure the stories intertwine. For Peter Parker, it's ve…

The Master may be returning to Doctor Who and Sylvester McCoy says he knows who will be playing him!

Image
It appears that the renagade Time Lord, the Master is returning to the hit sci-fi show Doctor Who! The interesting thing is that it is being reported that actor Sylvester McCoy (the 7th Doctor on Doctor Who) may know who the actor is that will be playing the Master. However, McCoy has not revealed who the actor is and there is no official word from the BBC just yet. So for now, fans will have to sit back and speculate on who could be taking the role.

The character of the Master has not been seen since the episode "The End of Time - Part 2" which aired on January 1, 2010. In his last scene the Master sacrifices himself in an act of revenge against the Time Lord President, Rassilon, and is sucked back into the time lock of The Last Great Time War.

Actors who have previously played the Master are; Roger Delgado, Peter Pratt, Geoffrey Beevers, Anothony Ainley, Eric Roberts, Derek Jacobi, and lastly, John Simm. Who would you want to see take over the role?
