There’s a lot going on in the world of superheroes, and in the next two years we will have Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers 2, Ant-Man, the Daredevil Netflix series, the Fox Gotham series, Batman Vs Superman, and much more. Now several interesting rumors have hit the net that may be true, or they could be complete bullsh*t, so let’s take a look at the reports and see if we can shift the nonsense from the possible truth.
It won’t be long before the next installment of Star Wars goes into production, and as usual, the net is going wild with all kinds of gossip and stories. Nothing’s confirmed at the moment, but we have the feeling official reports will be announced very soon. In the meantime, here are the latest rumors that have been flooding the net.
You know the economy’s in trouble when the adult industry is struggling. In fact, a Napster style crisis in porno had been an accident waiting to happen for a long time, and when fans of x-rated entertainment didn’t want to pay for it anymore, the world of porn took a big hit.
Not only are comic books thriving on the big screen, but they’re going strong on the small screen as well. Besides SHIELD, Arrow, and the upcoming Marvel Netflix series like Daredevil and Iron Fist, there is also a Batman origin series in the works, Gotham.
If anyone has been out of touch with the gaming world since the eighties, they’d probably laugh at the fact that there are actual game screenwriters in this day and age, let along great ones. In fact, some of the biggest writers in the business, like David Goyer (The Dark Knight), have written for games, and the storytelling has gotten much more sophisticated in recent times.
Ron Moore is best known to geeks as the man who reinvented Battlestar Galactica, turning it into one of the most acclaimed sci-fi shows in history. He’s finally back with a new creation, Helix, which has a similar plotline to The Thing. (In fact, Moore was going to remake The Thing as a mini-series.)
Just as what we’ve called The Console Wars had a surprise ending, the big box office race of 2013 also had an interesting twist as well. Not so much a surprise ending really, but another big movie has unseated Iron Man 3 as the box office champ of 2013.
It shouldn’t come as any big surprise that concert tours are bigger than ever. Yes, the economy’s still not in great shape and we need to cut down spending wherever we can, but with so many people not buying music, touring is the only way bands can survive these days.
These days, Marvel is practically everywhere you look, especially at the movies and on TV. Now Marvel’s going on tour with The Marvel Experience.
We’re barely into the new year and already there’s buzz about Comic-Con, which hits the San Diego Convention Center on July 24, and runs through the 27th. But the current buzz right now is the fact that there will no longer be four day passes.
The last several years have been a remarkable time for genre TV with shows like Revolution, SHIELD, and Under the Dome. Revolution especially came on strong, but later in the year it faltered after going on a brief hiatus. So now that the show is back, will its audience come back to it as well?
If you love to read, or love to write, the end of bookstores as we know it is a sad development that’s been coming for a long time. And apparently without a big blockbuster like a Fifty Shades of Grey supporting it, the book business continues to be in trouble.
You knew this was coming…it was pretty much a given that there would be Star Wars modifications made to Disneyland considering they now own the franchise, and now those plans are apparently coming to pass.
As long as the Simpsons have been around, it’s funny to think they haven’t gotten the LEGO treatment until now. And once you see the finished result, it’s clear the Simpsons were always a natural to be LEGO-ed.
We’re now almost ten days into the new year, and the verdict is in on what we’ve been calling the console wars between PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. And it’s a bit of a surprising verdict, because one console was definitely ahead of the game a month ago, but the tortoise may have beaten the hare this time.
We’re still a ways away from a truly great video game movie, if it’s ever going to arrive, and good, bad, or indifferent, the big screen adaptation of Need For Speed is arriving in theaters this March.
Although Steven Spielberg is now officially a senior citizen, he still loves staying on top of what’s new and hot. And now he’s going to have his new TV series, Extant, streaming on Amazon Prime right after it will air on CBS.
So last year Matt Smith finally left Doctor Who, and a new era is about to begin this year. In fact, the first scene of the new model Doctor Who just started shooting, with Peter Capaldi now playing the good doctor.
Huawei has debuted a mini Android (4.2.3) gaming console powered by Nvidia’s Tegra 4 SoC.
We just reported that late last year, Stan Lee hit the big 9-1, and it’s remarkable that he’s still here, and just as spirited as ever. He’s also been busier than ever, with a brand new TV show, Mighty 7, and an upcoming cameo on SHIELD.
