DIY Prop Shop - Samus Aran's arm cannon from Metroid!

Image
The DIY Prop Shop is back with host Vinny Logozio! In this episode Vinny is building Samus Aran's arm canon from the hit video game franchise Metroid. Vinny does a great job at bringing this arm canon to life and the final product has an absolutely great look. This is one project I wouldn't mind tackling myself.

X-Men: Apocalypse star Evan Peters reveals he was devastated when Marvel killed off their Quicksilver.

Image
At one time Marvel fans had two separate Quicksilvers running around on the big screen. You had actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson playing Quicksilver in the MCU in Avengers: Age of Ultron while Evan Peters played Quicksilver in X-Men: Days of Future Past (and the soon to be released X-Men: Apocalypse). The two characters, although the same character, were quite different from each other and that is what made them great.

While talking to Yahoo, Evan Peters revealed that he was devastated when Marvel killed off their Quicksilver at the end of Age of Ultron.
"“I was devastated by it. I really wanted that to keep going. I thought it was cool. I don’t really know why they killed him off. I liked what they did with it. It was different. It was a completely different take on it. He had the Russian accent. I mean, they had this swoopy thing with the lines behind, which I thought was really cool, and I don’t know. I thought it was a cool character.”" He goes on to talk about how having the…

Supergirl gets renewed for season 2 as it leaves CBS and moves to the CW.

Image
As CBS began announcing their show renewals Supergirl fans started to get a little nervous as there was no word about the renewal of the new hit show Supergirl. After a few weeks of waiting to see if it will get renewed Variety has learned that it has indeed been picked up for a second season. However, the show is leaving CBS and heading over to the CW.

This shouldn't come as a complete shock to fans. CBS' core audience is a little older while the CW firmly has a grip on the younger audience that watches shows like Supergirl. The crossover event between Supergirl and the CW's The Flash was a big hit with fans and maybe with Supergirl heading over to the CW more episodes like that can happen. I know that I'd love to see it happen.

Are you excited to see more episodes of Supergirl?

See how many people Iron Man has killed in Marvel films with this "Kill Count" video.

Image
Mr Sunday Movies is back with an all new "Movie Kill Count" video and this time the focus is on Tony Stark, aka Iron Man. This video goes over and counts up all of the direct and indirect kills seen throughout the Marvel films. Films included are Iron Man, Iron Man 2, The Avengers, Iron Man 3 and Avengers: Age of Ultron. A welcome difference to this video is that robots now have a separate counter as oposed to the Captain America kill count video. Mr Su day Movies also makes a special note that the "Chitauri Invasion force is an estimate based on Stalin's invasion into Georgia which was about 75,000". Interesting.

Enjoy.

Disney Interactive announces that Disney Infinity is officially discontinued.

Image
Gamers received some heart breaking news today as it was officially announced that Disney Infinity has been discontinued. What started out as an ambitious game released across all platforms on August 13, 2013 turned into a global phenomenon in the gaming community. It seems however that the game has lost a bit of steam and is no longer cost effective as the toy-to-life gaming market is not taking off like it once was.

This is extremely saddening news as I have had so many great memories due to Disney Infinity from the game itself to the game's various launch events in New York City. I was there for the NYC launch event for the first two editions (3.0 did not have an event) and they were truly amazing.

Official Press Release:
"By now you may have heard the news that we have made the difficult decision to discontinue production of Disney Infinity. From the beginning, Disney Infinity was built for you—our fans—and I wanted to take a moment to thank you not just for your support…

With the release of Captain America: Civil War comes another amazing batch of Easter eggs and Marvel references for fans to find. Mr Sunday Movies has put out a new video that identifies as many as he could find.

"Captain America: Civil War is packed with Easter Eggs, References, Cameo's and nods to the wider Marvel Cinematic Universe and Marvel Comics in general. Spoilers by the way. Spoiler alert.  This video touches upon a number of similarities between the Civil War comic and the live action adaptation including visual comparisons, the trigger point for the Avengers split, The Raft doubling as Prison 42, Spider-man and his new suit, the Captain America Iron Man fight and more.  There's also nods to other Marvel comics such as a Black Panther and Captain America showdown, the Dora Milage, Baron Zemo, Falcon and Redwing, the Vision and his relationship with Scarlet Witch and War Machines accident.

The first photo has Fassbender as his 15th Century assassin counterpart, Aguilar, during battle while the second photo shows him in the present day as Callum Lynch being restrained and possibly awaiting for his genetic memories to be unlocked.


Film synopsis:

Callum discovers he is descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses incredible knowledge and skills to take on the oppressive and powerful Templar organization in the present day." From what has been released so far the film looks like it will be really fun to watch and the wardrobe seems to be spot on. I am excited to see more. Especia…

The school houses for Ilvermorny have been discovered!

Image
Big new, Harry Potter fans! It looks as though the school houses for the American wizarding school, Ilvermorny, have been discovered!

While going though Pottermore's source codes, one fan has seemed to discover the names of the houses for an upcoming Ilvermorny sorting quiz. (See the source link below to see the Pottermore source code.)

Ilvermorny Houses:
Wampus, Thunderbird, Pukwudgie, and Horned Serpent.

Thought there is no additional information on the house we do know that these are creatures from folklore and mythology. Here are some brief descriptions to the creatures according to real world mythology (as opposed to wizard mythology).
"The Wampus is “a creature in American folklore, variously described as some kind of fearsome variation of a cougar.”  The Thunderbird is a “legendary creature in certain North American indigenous peoples’ history and culture. It is considered a supernatural bird of power and strength. It is especially important, and frequently depicted, in…
