Is The CW Creating It's Own Justice League Through 'Arrow'?

11 September 2014 2:53 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in November 2013, Arrow star Stephen Amell posted two comic book covers on his Facebook page that featured Green Arrow with the rest of the Justice League, which lead many fans to believe that he may be joining the DC Comics movie universe. While that notion was quickly debunked, it was speculated again this summer that the actor may be announced as part of the Justice League cast at Comic-Con, which was also shot down by the actor himself. However, Stephen Amell recently appeared at Fan Expo Canada last weekend, where he revealed that The CW is creating their own Justice League on TV.

"We are creating a Justice League on TV for us. I don't think there is a logistical reality to us participating in the feature side. That being said, I never wanted to have to feel like the show was justified, just because we participated in the movie. »

Sam Callahan thinks Robbie Williams would make a ''better'' 'X Factor' judge than Gary Barlow. The former contestant - who received weekly criticism from Gary over his mediocre performances in last year's competition - would have preferred his Take That bandmate be part of the show instead. Sam explained to Bang Showbiz: ''Robbie Williams would be pretty cool, he'd be pretty good. I mean he's the opposite to Gary. He's a real showman and entertainer. ''Robbie's been an idol of mine since I was little, he's an absolute entertainer. It's not like watching anyone else. As a judge I think he »

9 Things We Need to See in 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2'

13 August 2014 12:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles took in an impressive $65 million at the box office this past weekend, replacing the beloved Marvel sci-fi epic Guardians of the Galaxy as the number one movie in the country. Audiences enjoyed producer Michael Bay's rebooted take on the popular franchise, though critics didn't treat it too kindly. It didn't matter what they had to say though, as Paramount proudly announced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 for June 6, 2016. That's a full two years for the filmmaking team to get it right!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was a pretty streamlined affair, and only gave us a taste of this comic book universe, focusing on the four main turtles Donnie, Mikey, Raph and Leo, their sensei Master Splinter, their greatest enemy Shredder, roving Channel 6 reporter April O'Neil and her cameraman Vern Fenwick. A lot of classic and iconic characters, not to mention some very cool weapons and possible cameos, »

TV Review: 'Sharknado 2: The Second One' offers more polish, slightly less charm

30 July 2014 5:28 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I know I've thought it and said it and probably even written it, but there's something vaguely condescending about the notion that the "Sharknado" franchise is somehow review-proof or review-immune or however you'd prefer to view it.  Just because something is designed to be a guilty pleasure doesn't mean that it can't achieve its goals with more or less craft. And just because something isn't necessarily meant to be taken seriously doesn't mean that those aspirations can't be achieved with more or less success. Because the desire to be taken seriously or viewed as legitimate is hardly an argument to be reviewed or acknowledged in the case of utter ineptitude.  For example, look at CBS' "Under the Dome." It has a literary pedigree, some respectable creative auspices, a cast of familiar TV faces, a position of some prominence in CBS' lineup and a reputation as a summertime success, even if »

Bay and Fox shell unite the Tmnt

27 March 2014 10:04 AM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Robbie Rist - the voice of Michelangelo in the original movie - accused Michael Bay of "sodomizing" the Turtle saga with an alien origin. However, Rist's co-stars publicly supported this change of direction. Rist later took back his statement, remarking that he could have been out of line since Bay makes more money than he does. Never mind Robbie, he probably wouldn't have offered you a cameo anyway. Finally, the movie event we've all been waiting for. Not the return of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Megan Fox is back on our cinema screens! Clearly Michael Bay and Megan Fox have kissed and made up, which is good news for fans of blockbuster cinema, because we can't get enough of Megan running around in glorious slow-mo. Megan plays news reporter April O'Neil, joined onscreen by the likes of Willian Fichtner and, um, Whoopi Goldberg. Still, this looks like a lot of fun. »
