Meet Killer Frost and Deathstorm on The Flash in four new official photos.

Image
In the first half of this season's The Flash, fans were introduced to Earth 2 and the idea that this Earth potentially has doubles of all of our favorite characters. We have seen the double of Harrison Wells already but two more doubles are coming that will excite fans.

Entertainment Weekly has released new photos of Earth 2's Caitlin Snow, aka Killer Frost, (Danielle Panabaker) and Ronnie Raymond, aka Deathstorm, (Robbie Amell). The pair of characters will make their debut when the Flash team actually travels to Earth 2 in the episode appropriately titled "Welcome To Earth 2".

While speaking about the doubles found on Earth 2, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg stated,
"“Some of these people are beyond different. [Wells] seems so different until you start seeing the crazy differences between all of our other cast members. Then he’s the one who doesn’t seem quite so different and crazy anymore.”"

Could this be how Spider-Man will enter the MCU in Captain America: Civil War?

Image
*This article contains spoilers for Captain America: Civil War.*

The one hero that fans have wanted in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) since the beginning is Spider-Man and they will finally get it in the upcoming film Captain America: Civil War. The Marvel team have done an amazing job at keeping Spider-Man a secret but a new article from Geek.com may reveal how Peter Parker / Spider-Man enters the MCU in the upcoming film.

"Our source told us is that Tony goes to Peter Parker specifically to recruit him, and to seal the deal, offers him an advanced Spider-suit to fight in — an upgrade from whatever 15-year-old Peter was previously slinging around in. But why would Peter even consider such an offer? “Peter started becoming Spidey because he grew up and idolized Tony,” our source revealed. Since Iron Man takes place 10 years before we meet Peter in Civil War, where Peter is 15, that means Peter was five-years-old when Tony broke onto the scene in the original Iron Man, likel…

New season 2 trailer for Star Wars Rebels is packed with some great surprises!

Image
A new trailer for Star Wars Rebels dropped today that shares some amazing footage from the second half of season 2. You get to see the whole cast in action, as well as some guest appearances, but my personal favorite scenes involve Ahsoka and Darth Vader. The scene that is surely going to grab everyone attention however is when the young padawan Ezra Bridger ignites a green bladed cross guard saber similar to the one Kylo Ren used in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This one however seems to have an in tact kyber crystal and a solid, fully functioning blade. (Kylo's saber had a cracker kyber crystal giving it that "fiery" look.) I'm not sure how I feel about the cross guard saber being introduced in Rebels. Feels like they are just trying to solidify it in Star Wars canon a little too hard. Anyway, the trailer is amazing and a lot of fun. Enjoy!

Official Chinese music video for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is delightfully awful.

Image
Wow. In a move to boost numbers in China, Disney and Lucasfilm partnered with Chinese pop star Lu Han to create an official Star Wars: The Force Awakens music video. The result is rather entertaining. The original Star Wars trilogy was only released in China last year so it makes sense that they would give this market a big push for the new film. The video is extremely cheesy and fans will surely get a kick out of these unique lyrics. (Most was probably lost in translation.) I wonder how this did over in its main market.

First trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane is released, sequel to Cloverfield.

Image
Film lovers were given a surprise this morning as J.J. Abrams released the trailer for a sequel to the 2008 film Cloverfield. This film looks to keep some of the same themes as the first film but as you can see in this trailer it looks to be tonally different from the original which to some may be a welcome ed change. Fans were extremely split on Cloverfield, either liking it or hating it, but I am very intrigued by this sequel and seeing what it can offer.



10 Cloverfield Lane will be in theaters on March 11, 2016.

Image
Let's take a trip to Silent Hill with Baltimore Knife and Sword! The newest video for Man at Arms: Reforged created the deadly Great Knife that is carried around by Pyramid Head in the hit video game Silent Hill. This blade is absolutely massive and the build took a lot of hard work and skill. It came spectacularly though. The end result looks as deadly as it performs. Amazing work, guys!

What kind of weapons from film / TV/ video games would you want to see Man at Arms forge?

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair is coming to theaters and will reboot the Chronicles franchise.

Image
Though many fans assumed they had taken their last trip to Narnia it appears that those thoughts may have been premature. The last film from this series released was Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader in 2010. Now producer Mark Gordon has done an interview with Collider that reveals that the franchise will be rebooted with The Silver Chair. During the interview Gordon said,
"“We’re hoping to be able to make the movie very shortly. We’re very excited about it.” Speaking about the original cast returning, Gordon stated,
"“No, it’s all going to be a brand new franchise. All original. All original characters, different directors, and an entire new team that this is coming from.”" It's exciting that the franchise is coming back but a little sad that they are rebooting the entire thing. I enjoyed the first two films (The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe and Prince Caspian) but the third (Voyage of the Dawn Treader) felt a little off. The Lion, The Witch…

Not only do they show iconic films, their last screening was for Back to the Future, but they put those lucky enough to get invites in a fully immersive and interactive environment pulled from the film itself.

New Deadpool billboard humorously uses emojis to advertise the film.

The marketing department for the upcoming film Deadpool has struck again and this time it is solid gold. The newest billboard for the film uses only emojis to promote the film and it is hilarious.

Upcoming web series "X-Men: Danger Room Protocols" releases it's amazing retro style intro!

Image
A new animated web series is coming that is styled after the 90's X-Men and an amazing intro has been released in order to excite fans. Well ... it worked! This intro is incredible and all your favorite X-Men are here. Starting January 19, 2016, a new episode is currently planned to be released every two weeks.
"X-men: Danger room Protocols is an 18 episode web series that centers around Professor X putting teams of 2 X-men at a time through various training exercises in the Danger room.  In these exercises, you’ll see the X-men face off against a variety of villains from the comics in some familiar settings to the fans. The episodes are action packed and have tons of moments for all the characters to shine.  I started developing the series a year ago, and have put a lot of blood sweat and tears into the project. I did it partially as a love letter to Marvel and my childhood, as well as a way to give something back to the fans." Enjoy!

The marketing machine for Deadpool has churned out another amazing promotional banner and it is hilarious.

Short clip from Star Wars Rebels return episode reveals the appearance of a young Princess Leia!

Image
The conclusion of Disney XD's Star Wars Rebels season 2 will bring in another main Star Wars character that will certainly excite fans of the franchise. Guest staring in the premiere episode "Princess on Lothal" will be Princess Leia herself!

Leia is said to be about 15 years old as she makes her appearance in the show and makes her way to Lothal on a secret mission to acquire ships for the rebel fleet. Speaking to TV Insider, Dave Filoni (creator of Star Wars Rebels) stated,

"“We thought we had an opportunity to show her learning to be a leader, experimenting with the personality that becomes the stronger more resolute character you see in A New Hope. One of the complex challenges of depicting Leia in Rebels is that we have to remind the audience that at this point she is part of the Empire. She doesn’t believe in the Empire, but she is acting the part, almost a double agent.”"
Providing the voice for this single appearance (it is uncertain if Leia will be ba…

The Russo brothers talk about Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War and how he will be portrayed.

Image
Marvel fans have been looking forward to Spider-Man entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe and thanks to an amazing deal between Marvel and Sony it will finally happen in Captain America: Civil War. In a new interview with the Russo brothers who will be directing the film, they talk about how Spider-Man is being handled in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
"“We took a very personal approach to the character. He was my favorite character growing up, so the opportunity to bring Spider-Man to the screen is a dream come true. It's something that I spent a lot of time thinking about as a kid. We had thought back to the things that excited us about him as a character when we were younger, and one of the most important components of that was that he's a high schooler burdened with incredible powers and responsibility. That really differentiates him from every other character in the Marvel universe as opposed to other superheroes. For us, it was extremely important that we cast som…

The Suicide Squad get together for a new group photo from the upcoming film.

An all new image from the upcoming Suicide Squad film has surfaced and it features the team standing together ready to take on whoever steps in their way. I'm hoping that Will Smith as Deadshot is not out of his mask too much while they are on missions but I can see Will Smith having it in his contract to get face time which will be upsetting. I also love how everybody is serious in this shot and then you have Harley Quinn smiling. Perfect.

DIY Prop Shop - Build your own Chainsaw Machine Gun from Gears of War!

Image
Odin Abbott returns to host another new episode of "DIY Prop Shop"! This time around he is building the chainsaw machine gun from the hit video game Gears of War. This gun is more specifically titled the Mark 2 Lancer Assualt Rifle with chainsaw bayonet. I made note of this during the last show that Odin hosted but I really like how he walks through all the supplies and their prices before the actual build starts. It's a fantastic way to start off the video so that people trying to build the prop know what they need. The walk through process is wonderfully handled and believe or not this amazing prop was built for just $24!

Fan edit has Obi-Wan remembering the truth about Anakin Skywalker.

This is brilliant. A dedicated fan has taken the scene from Star Wars: A New Hope where Obi-Wan Kenobi tells Luke about his father and has added in scenes from Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. This new scene shows what Obi-Wan may have been thinking about as he was talking to Luke and is extremely touching. Well done!
