Lynda Carter weighs in on the new Wonder Woman costume!

Image
DC fans were treated to the first look of the new Wonder Woman (played by actress Gal Gadot) that we'll see in the film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice during San Diego Comic-Con. Fan reaction seemed to be split but on the whole they seemed to really like it. Complaints on the new outfit seemed to be nitpicking smaller details but with various Wonder Woman outfits out there not 100% of the fanbase was going to be pleased. I feel this new outfit has a real world look that will look great in the film.

In a recent interview Access Hollywood got to sit down with actress Lynda Carter who starred as Wonder Woman in the iconic 1975 television series. With the original Wonder Woman sitting in front of them, they of course had to ask what she thought of the new costume reveal. Here's what Lynda Carter had to say:
"Well, I was missing the red, white and blue, I have to say. ... I don't know. I haven't seen it yet, so I really can't comment. Maybe there's a lot …

The Tick could be returning with an all new live action show! [video]

It's hard to believe but the superhero known as The Tick could be returning with another live action show. Fan were first introduced to this hero by the Tick comics written by Ben Edlund and the 1994 animated series that lasted three seasons. Seeing the success of the character FOX aired The Tick live action show in 2001. The show starred Patrick Warburton (Seinfeld, Rules of Engagement) as the title character but FOX canceled the show after just 9 episodes after not finding their target audience.

According to People, Amazon will be bringing the show back but at the moment there is no set date. Streaming sites have had success with their original shows so this news is plausible. Original star Patrick Warburton is said to be returning to reprise his role as The Tick and original creator Ben Edlund will come on to produce the show. The original show developed a cult following so it'll be interesting to see how this show does and what kind of audience it'll grab. Are you in…

"The Future Begins" in the all new trailer for The Flash! [video]

A new trailer has been released by the CW today for their upcoming show The Flash! This new trailer shows fans some fantastic moments from the premiere episode and definitely sets a fun tone for the show. There is even a guest appearance from the Arrow in this trailer. It should be pointed out that even though the Flash and Arrow are in the same world and same show creators the shows are meant to feel different. From what I have heard and seen in the trailers The Flash is intended to be much less "dark" than Arrow is. It looks like it's going to be a great show and this trailer is a lot of fun. Enjoy!

The Flash is will premiere on the CW on Tuesday, October 7, 2014.

Watch the Xenoblade Chronicles 3DS reveal trailer! [video]

Along with the huge announced of the "New Nintendo 3DS" this morning during the Japanese Nintendo Direct it was also announced that the hit game Xenoblade Chronicles will be coming to the 3DS! Not so fast though gamers, in order to play Xenoblade Chronicles 3DS you'll need to own "New Nintendo 3DS" as the game will be exclusive to that system because of hardware requirements. (Or at least that is how it seems right now. The regular 3DS MAY be able to play it but we are waiting on official word.) You can check out the Xenoblade Chronicles 3DS reveal trailer below! Enjoy!

Nintendo does it again - announces another 3DS system! The "New Nintendo 3DS" and "New Nintendo 3DS XL"! [video]

Image
Nintendo held a special Japanese Nintendo Direct this morning and there was a lot of big reveals within it. The biggest news to come from this direct was the unveiling of another new 3DS system! Yes, another!

This new system is being called the "New Nintendo 3DS" and "New Nintendo 3DS XL". I'm hoping this name is changed before it's released worldwide. Once the system has been released for a while calling it "New" will be silly.

The New Nintendo 3DS is boasting improved hardware with faster loading times and even a better battery life. Current battery life for the 3DS and 3DS XL is 3 - 5 hours and 3.5 - 6.5 hours. The New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL will have a battery life of 3.5 - 6 hours and 3.5 - 7 hours. Its a small increase and 3DS XL gamers may not notice much of a difference.

Other new features on the New Nintendo 3DS will be the inclusion of a "C-stick" similar to the GameCube controller which will be located on the rig…

Watch the animated hilarity of "Twitch plays Pokemon" Part 1! [video]

What do you get when you get a couple hundred people (thousand?) all trying to play the same Pokemon game at the same time? The absolute best version of Pokemon ever. "Twitch plays Pokemon" quickly became popular by gamers everywhere to participate in and even just watch.
"Twitch Plays Pokemon was a live stream that lets you play Pokemon collaboratively with a lot of other people by typing commands into chat. ~ Hilarity ensued, and I would like to make an animation series based on it, to keep 'T.P.P' in memory. 

This will hopefully be a fully animated version of the original Twitch plays Poke'mon Red, following all the funniest parts that happened in the stream. This part 1 consists of the lost days, the days that were not documented. There will be a part for each GYM badge, and one big finale' for the Elite four and champ :D" This animated version of Twitch plays Pokemon is absolutely hilarious and shows off what the game looked like perfectly.

How many of these Easter eggs did you catch when watching the film?

Fan film reveals Voldemort's ultimate horcrux - the Nokia 3310! [video]

The key to defeating Lord Voldemort in the Harry Potter franchise was destroying each of his seven horcruxes. (Horcruxes being objects that contained pieces of Voldemort's soul within them that kept him "alive" even though his physical body was destroyed.) If these objects are housing pieces of your soul you would obviously want to use something that is easily hidden or extremely hard to destroy.

What if for his last horcrux Voldemort used a Nokia 3310 cell phone?! Yes, that Nokia cell phone. The one we all know and loved. Those things really were indestructible. Check out this funny video from "PistolShrimps" that shows us what it would have been like if a Nokia 3310 was Voldemort's last horcrux. Enjoy!
