Wizard World Chicago – the one of the largest comic book conventions in the U.S – welcomed Arrow star Stephen Amell to its stage last week and, during the question and answer session that followed, Amell addressed a number of points regarding both the fourth season of Arrow, and its implications for the wider DC universe.
Excitement among DC fans escalated recently when it was announced that Matt Ryan – star of the now cancelled Constantine series – would be reprising his role as the con-man-turned-occultist in at least one episode of Arrow. Onstage at Wizard World, Stephen Amell teased those scenes.
“I’ve been filming scenes all week long with Matt Ryan. He is such a treat. And a trip. He’s always saying his lines – and he’s getting ready to go on Broadway right now with Keira Knightley, so he’s always saying those lines too. I can’t tell »

Romantic comedies that are both genuinely funny and genuinely romantic are a rare, almost extinct breed, but the genre gets an empowering breath of fresh air in Judd Apatow's latest outing Trainwreck. Featuring culture's flavour of the month Amy Schumer in a sharp and engaging lead performance, it's a heartfelt, consistently funny film that deftly sidesteps its potential cliches at every turn.
Schumer is Amy, a work-hard-play-hard party girl whose Mo could have been taken from a hundred male protagonists we've seen in comedies before: she's a success at work, an irresponsible slacker at home, and prefers casual sex to serious dating. Her job at Manhattan men's mag S'nuff - headed up by Tilda Swinton's gloriously amoral editor Dianna - leads her to an interview with straight-laced »
Directed by Kyle Patrick Alvarez.
Twenty-four male students out of seventy-five were selected to take on randomly assigned roles of prisoners and guards in a mock prison situated in the basement of the Stanford psychology building.
The only thing separating prisoner from guard was a heads or tails flip of a coin; probably the most alluring detail in regards to how The Stanford Prison Experiment played out. It’s a harrowing study in what temporary power coupled with no repercussions could do to the psyche of average citizens, but most importantly everyday people with good intentions in the real world that seemingly could never harm another fellow human being.

Since she was a little girl, it’s been drilled into Amy’s head by her rascal of a dad that monogamy isn’t realistic.
