New clip for the Doctor Who Christmas Special "Last Christmas" features Santa and Rudolph!

A brand new clip has been released for the Christmas episode of the British sci-fi show Doctor Who and it features some iconic holiday characters! The Christmas episode has the Doctor and Clara trapped on an arctic base that is under attack and they must team up with Santa Claus to save the day! The clip features an entrance from Santa with his trusted reindeer, Rudolph! I love that Rudolph will make an appearance in this episode but there is one thing in this clip that makes me cringe. At the end of the clip you'll see Santa use a remote lock to "lock" Rudolph or get him to calm down a bit. It is a bit odd but this whole, "Lets put a remote lock on things that don't normally have one because it's funny" thing is a bit old. It was funny when David Tennant did it with the TARDIS in "The End of Time" but we have seen it done a few more times now in Doctor Who. However, using it on Rudolph is just ridiculous. Anyway, watch the clip below and enjo…

Interview with John Barrowman may have given away a big secret for Arrow!

Last Wednesday's mid-season finale of Arrow left fans asking a lot of answers and desperately looking for answers.

*Spoilers for the Arrow mid-season finale!


*Stop reading if you haven't seen it yet!


The ending scene in the episode has Oliver Queen go head to head with Ra's al Ghul in a fight to the death. If you haven't seen the fight scene yet or want to watch it again you can see it here. The end result has Ra's al Ghul winning the fight and stabbing Oliver Queen through the chest with a sword, then kicking him off a mountain side cliff. In the trailer for the show's return you see Oliver laying on a ledge on the cliff and a figure approaching him. There were a lot of theories on who this could be but it appears that hat is out of the bag.

Actor John Barrowman conducted an interview prior to the conclusion of his filming where he teases who the mysterious figure approaching Oliver could be. However, it seems that Barrowman needs a lesson on how to properly teas…

After bringing you a new official clip from Agent Carter yesterday, I am now happy to present to you the first two episode titles and descriptions for the show!

Episode titles and descriptions:
"“Now is Not the End”  Peggy is contacted by old acquaintance Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper, Marvel’s “Captain America: The First Avenger”) when he is framed for unleashing his deadliest weapons and can trust no one else. To help Peggy clear Stark’s name, he insists his butler, Edwin Jarvis, be at her beck and call–whether she likes it or not. But the risk is great: If caught, Agent Carter could be targeted as a traitor and spend the rest of her days in prison…or worse.  “Bridge and Tunnel”  Howard Stark’s deadliest weapon has fallen into enemy hands, and only Agent Carter can recover it. But can she do so before her undercover mission is discovered by SSR Chief Dooley and Agent Thompson?" Are you excited to see Peggy Carter in action when Agent Carter airs this January? What elements …

Re-watch the climactic showdown from the Arrow mid-season finale and read Stephen Amell's words to his fans!

*Spoiler for the mid-season finale of Arrow.

The mid-season finale of Arrow left fans with no words. (The words they did find were not exactly "work safe".) The climax of the episode saw the Arrow, Stephen Amell, fight Ra's al Ghul, Matt Nable, in a duel to the death. The fight was extremely well done and showcased the skill that Ra's al Ghul really has. The fight ends with Oliver Queen being stabbed through the chest by a sword and being kicked off a mountain cliff. (We'll most likely be seeing the introduction of a nearby Lazarus Pit when the show returns.)

Below you can re-watch the fight scene and then find out what actor Stephen Amell had to say about it all.




After the mid-season finale Stephen Amell sent out the following tweet.

It was a good run.

It's great to see that he has a sense of humor! Shortly after this Amell took to Facebook to thank his fans for all the feedback they were giving about the show …

Marvel (still) in talks with Sony to bring Spider-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

Image
Perhaps the biggest news to come from the Sony hack is that Marvel Studios has been in talks with Sony to bring Spider-Man over to the Marvel Cinematic Universe! Yes, you read that right!

A leaked email from Sony Pictures president Doug Belgrad to Sony motion picture chief Amy Pascal revealed a discussion about a deal that would allow Marvel to produce a new trilogy of Spider-Man films while Sony kept creative control throughout. A separate email showed Amy Pascal talking about Marvel being in contact about adding Spider-Man in the upcoming Captain America sequel Captain America: Civil War. Comic fans will know that Spidey plays a rather large role in that storyline and that Marvel will really want to acquire the rights to use him in the film.

Initial reports seemed to point in the direction that these talks from October broke down and that Sony planned a "Spidey Summit" for January to discuss the future of the character. However, Latino Review (a site and source that I have …

Sony in talks to cross over 21 Jump Street and Men In Black.

Image
The Sony hack has been delivering some interesting news but this may be the most bizarre piece of information that has surfaced so far.

It appears that Sony has been looking for a way to get their Men In Black franchise back into the spotlight after a less than stellar outcome from MIB 3. Emails from Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal reveal that Sony is looking to return to the Men In Black franchise by crossing it over with the comedic "Jump Street" franchise starring Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. Jonah Hill is one of the producers for "Jump Street" and seems to be on board with this radical idea.
"In an e-mail to Ms. Pascal, Mr. Hill says “jump street merging with mib i think that’s clean and rad and powerful.”" Exact details on this crossover are non-existent at the moment but it looks like Sony would like to release this film between 2016 and 2017.
"In another e-mail, Hannah Minghella, a president of production for Sony’s Columbia Pictures l…

Executive producers from Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. discuss the Inhumans and Skye's true comic identity!

Image
The mid-season finale of Marvel's Agents of SHIELD was huge last night! Fans could not believe what they had seen.

*Spoilers for the mid-season finale*

It was finally revealed last night that Skye, played by actress Chloe Bennet, is actually an Inhuman! I had this theory leading up to this episode but it is great to see it now confirmed. It's also really cool to think that Agents of SHIELD is already laying down the ground work for the 2018 Inhumans film.

Inhumans are a race that were genetically enhanced by the Kree and have special abilities unique to each individual.

However, there was another big reveal in this episode by Skye's father who called her by her real name, "Daisy".

Executive producers Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about both who Skye really is and what it is like to be writing an Inhuman storyline into the show.
"What was the toughest part about getting this episode right? Tancharoen:We're revealing a…

With a second announcement announcing the cast that will consists of Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jared Leto as the Joker, Will Smith as Deadshot, Tom Hardy as Rick Flag, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, and Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, attention grew even further.

Details revealed for Disney and Pixar's Finding Nemo sequel Finding Dory!

Image
Fans were quite excited when Disney and Pixar announced a sequel to the hit film Finding Nemo. The sequel would be titled Finding Dory and as you can guess from the title would focus around the character of Dory, voiced by Ellen DeGeneres.

This new film will be taking place six months after the first film. Dory will become fascinated with where she came from after watching a group of manta rays migrate back home which will lead into our new adventure.
"“The movie will be mostly set at the California Marine Biology Institute, a huge complex of sea life rehabilitation and aquarium, where Dory was born and raised,” Morris says. “We will get to meet new characters, like an octopus, sea lions, a beluga whale, among others.”" Dory's parents will be voiced by Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy. Many fan favorite characters such as Marlin, Nemo and the Tank Gang will be making a return in this new film and fans will be introduced to many new ones as well.

New TV series confirmed for SyFy titled "Krypton"!

Image
Watch out, DC fans! An all new DC show is about to come to the SyFy channel but it takes an interesting twist that you may not have expected.

Syfy and Warner Horizon Television have teamed to create a show titled Krypton that will be about the iconic planet that Superman was born on. David S. Goyer (Constantine) and Ian Goldberg (Once Upon a Time) will be producers of this series and they have come up with an interesting(?) idea for the show.
"From Warner Horizon Television and DC Comics, Krypton takes place years before the Superman legend we know, when the House of El was shamed and ostracized. This drama, which is in development, follows the Man of Steel's grandfather as he brings hope and equality to Krypton, turning a planet in disarray into one worthy of giving birth to the greatest Super Hero ever known."
I can only assume that this show's creators passed on doing a young Superman style show, similar to the current Gotham, because it would be way too similar t…

Watch the full The Flash vs Green Arrow fight from the epic television crossover event!

During the first part of the Flash/Arrow crossover event that occurred on The Flash, there was an epic showdown between the two heroes where the two went toe to toe in a true hero grudge match. The Flash, aka Barry Allen, may have been under the influence of a metahuman but everything he did against Arrow, aka Oliver Queen, was still using his own abilities. This fight scene was fantastic and even though the show declared the fight a tie (seen in a scene just after this video ends), in my eyes The Flash completely won the fight. Watch the video below and let me know who you think came out on top.

One DC character may already be dead by the start of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice! Find out who!

Image
Some very surprising news has surfaced concerning one character in the upcoming DC film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice! It appears as though one character fans just assumed to get a glimpse of in the film will already be deceased!

*Spoilers ahead*


*Really ... Spoilers*


Badass Digest are reporting that one beloved Batman character will have already died by the time the events of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice take place. Though the film is primarily set in Metropolis, there are some key scenes set in Gotham where fans had expected to see Commissioner James Gordon. However, it appears that Commissioner Gordon will have already died by the time we meet Batman in this film. In the film, Batman will have been operating within Gotham for nearly 17 years. It is not stated when Commissioner Gordon dies or even how but fans will see a memorial plaque to him in the film. This explains why there was never a casting for the character.

How do you feel about this character being deceased i…

See how old the original Star Wars characters have become in this hilarious The Force Awakens trailer from SNL!

This weekend, Saturday Night Live had a hilarious Star Wars: The Force Awakens parody trailer sketch that had me laughing pretty hard as I am sure everyone else was who has seen it. I unfortunately did not catch it live but thanks to /Film I was able to see it. The sketch pokes fun at how old the original cast is going to be in the new film and what their characters will look like as senior citizens. James Franco, Saturday's host, played Luke Skywalker, Han Solo is played by Taran Killam, Lando Calrissian is played by Kenan Thompson, and Princess Leia is played by Bobby Moynihan. They truly did a great job with this! Enjoy!
