horrible_singalong

By Tami Katzoff

2013 was supposed to be the year that a sequel to “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” finally came together. Fans and participants alike were excited about it; Nathan Fillion, who starred in the 2008 internet musical alongside Neil Patrick Harris and Felicia Day, had hinted that a sequel was forthcoming, if not imminent, and Maurissa Tancharoen, who crafted the film with the Brothers Whedon (her husband Jed and in-laws Zack and Joss) confirmed to MTV News in late 2012 that work was indeed being done.

But alas, it is not to be -- not in 2013 and highly unlikely in 2014. And you can put most of the blame squarely on the shoulders of the Avengers and their sequel. Read More...

SERENLW-#2-FC-FNL-575-cropped

By Tami Katzoff

Browncoats (fans of Joss Whedon’s short-lived TV show “Firefly” and its feature film follow-up “Serenity”) have had reason to rejoice since Dark Horse Comics announced that the adventures of Captain Malcolm Reynolds and Co. will continue with a new six-issue comic series, “Serenity: Leaves on the Wind.” What makes this even sweeter for fans is the choice of writer for the series: television scribe Zack Whedon... Also known as Joss’ little brother.

Most of the previously published Firefly/Serenity comics, including those scripted by Zack, focused on backstory, or events that occurred between the TV show and the film. “Leaves on the Wind” will be the first series to pick up the action right where “Serenity” left off. It commences roughly 39 weeks after the Serenity crew managed to give the big bad guys of the Alliance a sizeable butt-kicking, with a very pregnant Zoe (widow of lovably eccentric pilot Wash) triggering the crux of the story.

arrow-the-crucible-575

By Ryan Rigley

Surprises a plenty in last night's "Arrow" as we were finally told the true identity of the masked vigilante known as the Black Canary. Picking up the episode with a hilarious juxtaposition of Felicity stalling Isabel Rochev and Oliver beating up armed thugs, "Crucible" begins with the former Starling City socialite showing up to his own event a little too fashionably late.

As Oliver talks to Isabel about the city's terrible gun problem, the District Attorney chimes in stating that he already knows where all of these thugs are getting their military-grade weapons: a crime lord that calls himself "The Mayor."

Back at the Arrowcave, Oliver discusses the Black Canary with Felicity and Diggle. Felicity then points out that the Black Canary hasn't been following Oliver, but actually Laurel Lance who has been on a crazy drinking-binge since last week's episode. Read More...

Arrow_2x04_Crucible__6-575

By Alex Zalben

Tonight on The CW's "Arrow," Oliver Queen and his team are put through the "Crucible," fighting a war on multiple fronts, while still trying to unravel the mystery of new hero Black Canary. In the middle? Oliver's trusty assistant/hacker Felicity Smoake, played by Emily Bett Rickards. In advance of tonight's episode, we chatted with Rickards on the phone about what's up with the Canary, whether there's a chance for Olicity, and if, maybe, we can see a little something called "Birds of Prey." Oh, and why Colton Haynes is amazing at Mortal Kombat: Read More...

THE-WALKING-DEAD-Season-4-Episode-3-Isolation-1

By Kat Rosenfield

Last week, one poor fellow named Patrick unleashed the double whammy of suck upon the community: first he dropped dead of a highly infectious, incredibly deadly flu, and then he walked dead into a bunk and ate somebody's bowels. The result: many people bitten, many more infected, and no telling who will be next to die.

SPOILERS AHEAD. Read More...

jennifer-lawrence-x-men-575

By Alex Zalben

Does a new set photo from "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" tease the return of James Marsden's Cyclops? Well... Maybe. But let's explain why, or why not, a quick shot of a clapboard could indicate yet another X-Man getting resurrected from the dead in the movie universe.

As just posted on the mothership, there's new pictures of the X-sequel, including a sexy shot of Wolverine riddled with bullet holes, and an even sexier shot of Professor X and Magneto playing some groovy chess in the 1970's. But what caught our eye was a behind-the-scenes picture of Jennifer Lawrence (sans Mystique make-up) holding a clapboard for the movie.

Two important details pop out, if you stop looking at Jennifer Lawrence's radiant smile for just one frickin' second and zoom in on the clapboard: Read More...
