Assembling Avengers #20: Moon Knight

17 December 2012 1:00 PM, PST | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

by Ryan Rigley

Are you eagerly awaiting the 2015 release of "The Avengers 2" but often find yourself struggling to pass the time? Well, calm down. We here at MTV Splash Page completely understand. In fact, for the past few months, we've been compiling our own wish list of potential Avengers to include in Earth's Mightiest Sequel. This week, we'll be discussing Marvel's answer to Batman: Marc Spector, a.k.a. Moon Knight.

Created in 1975 by Doug Moench and Don Perlin, Moon Knight has been a full-time member of both the West Coast Avengers and the Secret Avengers in the past. He also suffers from a severe case of Multiple Personality Disorder. So what are the chances that Marc Spector will be making an appearance in Joss Whedon's "Avengers" sequel? Click past the jump to find out!

Who?

Rebelling against his rabbi father, Marc Spector takes up heavyweight boxing at an early age. »

'Be The Boss': Competing For Promotion, Franchise

3 December 2012 4:08 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

"Be the Boss" looks to take the formula that made "Undercover Boss" a hit and quite literally flip it on its head. Instead of one of the top people in the company heading into the trenches to see how things are going, this new series plucks two people from the bottom and lets them compete "Apprentice"-style to see which one of them is going to get rewarded with a big promotion.

In the premiere episode, the company featured was Complete Nutrition, and the competitors were a former beauty pageant contestant and a former Marine. Things seemed neck-and-neck in the competition, though it wasn't always clear what the higher-ups were looking for.

In the end, Jason was awarded the new executive vice president position, but that's when "Be the Boss" pulled the rug out and established itself as a feel-good reality show. Ashley didn't go away empty-handed. She was the show's actual big winner, »

Martha Thomases: Feminism In Four Colors

23 November 2012 5:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Feminist fan-girls have long lamented the unreal, impossible physiques presented in modern comics. The long-legged, slim-hipped, big-breasted figures, women with heads bigger than their waists, are enraging to all human who possess legs, hips, breasts, heads and waists.

It’s not new, and it’s not a concern limited to graphic storytelling. The fashion industry, for example, delights in sending pre-pubescent girls on the runway, as an ideal to which real, adult women should aspire, because that’s what moves the merchandise. And the accompanying insecurity sells make-up, hair color, plastic surgery and diet pills.

Everybody wins – except real, adult (and adolescent) women. Many of whom develop crippling self-loathiing which sometimes leads to unnecessary surgery, eating disorders, and death.

And now, according to The New York Times, it seems that boys are at risk for the same thing. Unreal expectations about how they should look cause them to take up »

Up All Night Now a Multi-Camera Comedy

29 October 2012 12:15 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Up All Night is undergoing yet another overhaul — this time switching from a single-camera to a multi-camera format. Wow, just when we thought networks couldn't surprise us. The show, which still stars Christina Applegate, Will Arnett, and Maya Rudolph, will film in front of a live studio audience for five episodes, the season's twelfth through sixteenth installments. (NBC ordered three additional episodes today, too.) This is complete madness! Nbs should let Up All Night go full-on American Horror Story and start a whole new show with the same actors playing different characters with a different premise. Everybody wins. »

On 'Breaking Bad,' Everyone Wants Out of the Meth Game But Walter White

20 August 2012 1:01 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

"Everybody wins," Walter White (Bryan Cranston) insists at the end of "Buyout," last night's episode of "Breaking Bad." He's about to propose a plan that the credits roll on before we can hear, but it seems safe to assume that everybody will not win, because nothing in the show comes without a price, and it's usually one that no one sees coming. Like, say, the kid, that poor dirtbike-riding boy that eager beaver Todd (Jesse Plemons) shot dead at the end of last week's train robbing excursion. Everything in the heist went almost eerily well until that point, until the team's unexpected encounter with that young observer, to which Todd reacted just as he'd been told. "At the end of the day, it was him or us -- and I choose us," he argued to Walt, Jesse (Aaron Paul, particularly good this episode) and Mike (Jonathan Banks) at the start of this week's episode, »

TV Review: Breaking Bad – 5×06 “Buyout”

20 August 2012 5:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Breaking Bad 5×05 “Buyout”

Stars: Bryan Cranston, Anna Gunn, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris, Rj Mitte | Written by Vince Gilligan, Gennifer Hutchison | Directed by Colin Bucksey

**Spoilers Lie Beyond Here**

I previously discussed very briefly that Vince Gilligan mentioned that the log line of the series was taking Walter White from Mister Chips to Scarface. While I cannot deny that this is a plain and simple truth, I think that in the midst of this slow-burn transition, Walter White is slowly gliding past another phase: The Daniel Plainview phase. I was instantly reminded of Paul Thomas Anderson’s 2007 classic film, “There Will Be Blood.” Of course, that was a film about an oilman driven by greed and slowly goes insane because he doesn’t want anyone to succeed. He was a creature who learned to stop crawling about in the muck and rise up. The thing about Walter White is, he’s »

Breaking Bad Recap: Breaking Good

19 August 2012 8:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The better angels of Jesse’s nature, coupled with the blossoming of some old-fashioned common sense, leads him to a momentous decision in this week’s episode of Breaking Bad. But seeing as how that decision runs counter to Walt’s interests, its chances for survival are worse than those of a spider in a jelly jar. So drop a fumigation tent over your house and let’s review what happened in “Buyout.”

Breaking Bad, Ep. 5.05: “Dead Freight” a master class in ruthless audience manipulation

13 August 2012 1:17 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Breaking Bad, Season 5, Episode 5: “Dead Freight”

Written by George Mastras

Directed by George Mastras

Airs Sundays at 10pm Et on AMC

Remember “Live Free or Die,” the fifth-season premiere of Breaking Bad, and its nifty but slight little magnet-powered heist? In retrospect, that was little more than a dry run for ‘Dead Freight,” a tightly wound, nearly-perfectly orchestrated hour that brought the show’s more or less patented “holy shit” factor back in a big way – though not necessarily in the way you might have had in mind.

From the second invocation of Jesse James to Hank’s attempt to tempt Walt Jr. (now, once again, going by “Flynn”) back to the land of the living with the promise of Heat (on Blu-ray!) to Walt’s boast to Skyler that he’s going to rob a train, “Dead Freight” is constantly reminding us that This Is a Heist Episode. »

An analysis of Joss Whedon's new three-year deal with Marvel Studios

8 August 2012 9:32 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

In the wake of the recent awesome news that Joss Whedon is set to make both The Avengers 2 and a live action TV series for Marvel, there's an unsurprising but welcome extension to this collaboration. Marvel have announced that:

Joss Whedon has signed an exclusive deal with Marvel Studios for film and television through the end of June 2015. As part of that deal, Whedon will write and direct Marvel’s The Avengers 2 as well as help develop a new live action series for Marvel Television at ABC. He will also contribute creatively to the next phase of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe.”

Yes, Joss Whedon is going to spend the next three years putting superheroes on our screens, making movies and TV shows about comic book characters. That’s awesome. It’s like signing a contract with the Dollhouse, only kind of the opposite.

(Maybe if someone in one of these contracts messes up, »

‘Cosmopolis’ starring Robert Pattinson and Juliette Binoche – trailer review

2 May 2012 7:00 AM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Cosmopolis

Directed by: David Cronenberg

Starring: Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti

Rating: Not Yet Rated

Release Date: Tba, 2012

Trailer Score: 9/10

Thoughts by Tsr: Well, this looks insane. And yes, that is absolutely a compliment. All the craziness on display in this trailer for Cosmopolis has raised my excitement level to new heights, quite an achievement considering it was already among my most anticipated films of 2012. I’ve made it clear a handful of times that I’m a big fan of Robert Pattinson, so to have him working with Cronenberg on a project like this excites me to no end.

The trailer’s biggest success is that it’s mostly just a collection of tantalizingly crazy images – rats, and riots, and Robert Pattinson shooting himself in the hand, oh my! – that don’t spell everything out as far as the plot is concerned. We also get brief glimpses of the supporting cast, »

"Game of Thrones" Recap: "Do You Want My Brother to Come in and Help?"

16 April 2012 9:50 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

While Episode 3 of HBO's hit Soapless Opera was a bit talkier - not to mention 100% less infanticidey - than the last two eps, that's not to say that it didn't offer its fair share of thrills, chills, and dead kids. Let's jump in, shall we?

We pick right off with Jon Snow (Kit Harington) getting his frozen ass handed to him by his sword-coveting, baby-killing host, Craster (Robert Pugh). Seriously, does no one have a copy of Martha Stewart Entertains to pass around north of the wall to help people navigate these situations? Because it says - right there in Chapter 1 - that it is considered impolite to murder your children and/or feed them to the Undead that Rule the Night when you have guests over. Also, I didn't see a single guest towel!

When his Night's Watch commander, Jeor (James Cosmo), learns that Jon »

“Arrested Downton” Is As Good As Combined Tumblrs Get

29 February 2012 2:12 PM, PST | BestWeekEver | See recent BestWeekEver news »

We’ve all seen those Tumblrs where people take quotes from one thing and put them overtop another thing to create photos of both things, causing us to smile and agree “I like both those things!” An example, off the top of my head: Ron Swanson Newsies! (Pic of young Christian Bale holding up newspaper, with caption telling people to do one thing whole-assed). Everybody wins! This Tumblr, “Arrested Downtown” – a combination of Downton Abbey screenshots with Arrested Development quotes – is about the best one of these Tumblrs there can possibly be. Here’s one excellent example: Check out the rest of the site here. It is very perfectly pointless. »

17-Year-Old Earl Sweatshirt Returns After 2-Year Absence

9 February 2012 5:08 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

After two years off the radar and a misguided "Free Earl" campaign, 17-year-old Earl Sweatshirt is back. The former (and possibly current?) Odd Future member released a mock ransom video Wednesday, with a drawing of a mouth sewn shut and himself demanding, "If you want the whole thing, give me 50,000 [image of his Twitter handle flashes] by today... and if you don't want the whole thing? Then it's not that big of a deal." Alongside a tweet he sent out -- "nigga need followers. give me 50,000 and i'll release this shit for everybody" -- the point couldn't have been clearer. Today, Sweatshirt is sitting pretty with more than 78,000 followers, and we've got a song called "Home." Everybody wins?

Justified, Ep. 3.04: “The Devil You Know” thins the herd, thickens the plot

8 February 2012 12:12 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Justified, Season 3, Episode 4: “The Devil You Know”

Written by Taylor Elmore

Directed by Dean Parisol

Airs Tuesdays at 10pm on FX

As a brief digression, allow me to spin a little pre-emptive Justified fan-fiction. With the welcome re-appearance this week of Kaitlyn Dever as Loretta, and witnessing the return of her easy repartee with Raylan, it’s suddenly easy to picture a grim-but-satisfying season progression in which somehow Winona (who’s absent this week) loses the child they’ve spent the season anticipating (if you need any help imagining how that might come about, I point you in the direction of the half-dozen baddies circling Raylan at any given moment), thus both giving the season a palpable emotional center, keeping the pesky presence of a defenseless dependent out of the show, and allowing room for Raylan to take in Loretta and get to have a more conversationally engaging kid around. »

Jennifer Love Hewitt And Joe Jonas Engaged On 'Hot In Cleveland'?

26 January 2012 2:39 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

Victoria was thrilled that her daughter Emmy was stopping by for a visit on the latest "Hot in Cleveland" (Wed., 10 p.m. Est on TV Land), and shocked to learn that she was bringing her new fiancee with her. Jennifer Love Hewitt reprised her role as the daughter who's every bit -- if not more -- dramatic than her mother. She even brought dramatics to the confirmation of her engagement.

It was the groom that turned out to be the biggest surprise, and another returning guest star. Melanie was delightfully happy and surprised to see her son Will (Joe Jonas), and then just plain surprised when Emmy clarified that it was Will she was engaged to. Will who was neither famous nor rich. So why was this happening?

Will certainly didn't seem to know, but as Emmy kept reminding him, she was there now to do his thinking for him. »

New Study Proves That Bacon Stops Nosebleeds, Is Indeed Magic

25 January 2012 7:26 AM, PST | BestWeekEver | See recent BestWeekEver news »

We all know that bacon is literally magical and can do anything, but according to a new study at the Detroit Medical Center, “Anything” now includes “The ability to stop nosebleeds”: A new medical study recommends a method called “nasal packing with strips of cured pork” as an effective way to treat uncontrollable nosebleeds… “Cured salted pork crafted as a nasal tampon and packed within the nasal vaults successfully stopped nasal hemorrhage promptly, effectively, and without sequelae … To our knowledge, this represents the first description of nasal packing with strips of cured pork for treatment of life-threatening hemorrhage in a patient with Glanzmann thrombasthenia.” So there you have it – finally, a justification for shoving bacon strips up your nose after years of us just doing that to get closer to the smell and looking foolish. Not anymore! “I have a nosebleed” Boom – porknose. Everybody wins. Next question – is sticking »

Volkswagen's 'The Bark Side' teaser: Can this year's ad top 2011's 'The Force'?

20 January 2012 10:00 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Since the wild success of “The Force” during Super Bowl Xlv, Volkswagen decided to stick with a formula that works for this year’s game day ad. Star Wars + adorableness = Everybody wins! In a new tease for this year’s commercial, which will premiere Sunday Feb. 5, Volkswagen has repurposed the “Imperial March” (a.k.a. Darth Vader’s theme) using a chorus of howling hounds. See the Ewoks and Wookiees and At-ATs (oh my!) in the “spot” below.

Now, for comparison…

Golden Globes 2012: What we hope to see Sunday night

9 January 2012 1:23 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It almost seems pointless to make a wish list for the Golden Globes, as it touts itself, and rightly so, as the unpredictable awards show. After all, this is a ceremony that in years past has had some memorably hilarious — and hysterical — acceptance speeches, called Jennifer Love Hewitt’s name as a nominee, and caused Brendan Fraser do this. Really, anything goes.

So while there are certain things we know we won’t get to see come Sunday night (no possibility of another Melissa McCarthy win… seriously, what gives?) when host Ricky Gervais returns to the scene of the crime, »
