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.

arrow-broken-dolls-sin-575

By Ryan Rigley

Picking up exactly where "Identity" left off, last night's "Arrow," entitled "Broken Dolls," began with a hooded Oliver Queen completely surrounded by heavily armed policemen. At Laurel's command, the vigilante is about to be taken into custody when all of a sudden a female vigilante, Black Canary, busts into the room wiping out her "Canary Cry" which in the Arrow-verse is represented by a small handheld device that emits high-pitched frequencies.

With the Starling City policemen subdued, Arrow and Black Canary make their escape. As the Canary vanishes up a nearby fire escape, Oliver heads back to his Arrowcave to figure out the identity of this mysterious, new vigilante.

The next day, Officer Lance gets a call from police dispatch about a strange murder victim found on the other side of town. When Lance responds to the call, he's told to stay put. Ignoring his orders, Lance heads over to the crime scene anyway only to find that a notorious serial killer, the Dollmaker, from earlier in his career has escaped from prison. Read More...

Even if the films based on Daredevil and Punisher haven't exactly set box office on fire, Marvel seems intent at giving the characters another go at the big screen. Speaking with Marvel's President of Production, Kevin Feige, Bleeding Cool was able to nab this quote over the weekend: Read More...

By Kat Rosenfield

After the season premiere of "The Walking Dead" ended badly for one young member of the cast, this week promised some serious trouble behind the prison walls. Patrick, a dorky teenage newcomer to the survivors' community, started out last week's episode as an eager people-pleaser — and ended it as a walking people eater, after ignominiously dying during a midnight trip to the showers. Who did he sink his teeth into first? Read on for the recap!

By Alex Zalben

In our continuing quest to milk every single bit out of ">the half hour we had at New York Comic Con with "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s" Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, and Jeph Loeb, we had asked the team whether Coulson's Commandos were more co-workers, or family. Specifically, when Joss Whedon had been on press tour talking about "Avengers," he had said the team was more of a "dysfunctional family" than anything else. So how does the S.H.I.E.L.D. team compare? Read More...

By Ryan Rigley

Oliver Queen just can't seem to catch a break. Ever since last season's finale, the socialite turned superhero has had a pretty tough time protecting his beloved city. Last night's "Arrow," entitled "Identity," proved no different. Picking up the episode with some intense pull ups inside the Arrowcave, Oliver is then called into the Starling City Police Department, alongside his sister Thea, to pickup the rebellious Roy Harper, who has totaled his car whilst chasing after the Triad.

Laurel, who had been interrogating Roy about the vigilante (who will henceforth be known as Arrow), tells Oliver to talk some sense into the kid. From the looks of it, Laurel has had a complete change of heart, as far as Arrow is concerned, and will stop at nothing to see him behind bars. Read More...

After the film, we had a chance to talk to Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, and of course asked about the spin-off. You're never going to guess where the show is set: Read More...
