Marvel’s 'Black Panther' and 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Lead New Era of Diverse Superhero Films

10 July 2017 9:32 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Spider-Man: Homecoming is a Spider-Man movie for a new generation -- a generation that desires to see a franchise reflective and representative of the world they currently live in. Yes, Tom Holland's Peter Parker still has to balance crime fighting with homework; and yes, he's still white, but the cast of characters around him are not. 

"That was the intention. You know, because it’s 2017," John Francis Daley, who co-wrote the film with Jonathan Goldstein, told Et at the movie's Los Angeles premiere on June 28. 

"It was also important to make this the real world. The Marvel universe lives in a real sort of place, so we wanted to be a part of a real school. The real school is in New York," added Goldstein. 

The Spider-Man first created by Marvel Comics' Stan Lee and Steve Ditko in the 1960s did live in a "real sort of place," but a seemingly »

We didn’t foresee any of those Scandal events going down the way they did, did you?

The true mastermind behind Frankie Vargas’ assassination was finally revealed during Thursday’s season six finale. At first, it seemed as though Olivia Pope’s (Kerry Washington) mother Maya (Khandi Alexander) was at fault, but it was later revealed she was actually hired to assassinate Mellie (Bellamy Young) at the inauguration. But, plot twist: Maya wanted to kill the real mastermind, newly-elected Vice President Luna Vargas (Tessie Santiago), though her attempt was thwarted.

Kerry Washington‘s alter ego Olivia Pope and the Scandal writers made a nod to Hillary Clinton on Thursday’s episode. And amid the current political news, Gladiators had lots to say about it on social media, particularly with many raising hands emojis.

Washington reacted to that “nasty woman” line while live-tweeting the episode, giving all the credit to the show’s writers. “All hail the @ScandalWriters »

Domestic terrorism is familiar territory for Scandal, but Thursday’s episode — which claimed the lives of more than 100 Americans via calculated drone strikes — was so over-the-top, I fully expected Vin Diesel to pop out and save the day.

In lieu of Diesel, however, it was up to Olivia & Co. to stop Peus from blowing up half of the country. And while they eventually stumbled into victory, they took a treacherous road to get there, one that included a whole lot of insanity and betrayal.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D re-release gets a trailer

4 May 2017 3:25 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

He’ll always be back. On August 25, James Cameron’s groundbreaking film Terminator 2: Judgment Day is getting a 3D re-release in theatres and Distrib Films Us has released a trailer for it. Check out the trailer below…

At the time it was released in 1991, T2 was the most expensive film ever made with a budget of $102 million. The use of CGI on Robert Patrick’s advanced liquid metal T-1000 pushed the envelope of what could be done with computer enhanced technology and graphics, arguably paving the way for improved graphics in films and even motion capture performances. In its original run, the Terminator sequel made $520 million worldwide and went on to collect four technical Oscars at the Academy Awards.

Scandal Needs to End With Season 7

28 April 2017 2:38 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

My fellow Gladiators, we need to talk.

When Scandal premiered on ABC in the spring of 2012, it was electrifying. Half-procedural, half-political thriller — and all-dramatic soapy goodness — it was a fresh addition to the television landscape. On that much, we can all agree.
