19 November 2014 4:29 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Glenn Howerton Was 2nd Choice For Star-Lord In Guardians Of The Galaxy

19 November 2014 7:32 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn recently revealed that had Chris Pratt turned down the role of Star-Lord, he and Marvel would have made an offer to Glenn Howerton.  At this point, it's hard to imagine anyone turning down Marvel for any reason except other contractual obligations or scheduing conflicts.  Said Gunn,  "Glenn came along a little bit later, but there was a good chance that, if I didn't cast Chris, that I would've cast Glenn Howerton in the role." That's interesting considering the long, Long, Long list of candidates initially in the running for the role. To be exact, Joel Edgerton (Warrior), Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire), Jim Sturgess (Cloud Atlas), Lee Pace (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey) Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables), Garrett Hedlund (Tron Legacy), James Marsden (X-Men) Sullivan Stapleton (Animal Kingdom), Jim Sturgess (Cloud Atlas), Zachary Levi (Chuck), Michael Rosenbaum (Smallville) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Dark Knight Rises »

Poppy Drayton Will Topline MTV’s Shannara Series

18 November 2014 8:34 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

From HBO’s Game of Thrones to Starz’s Outlander, high-fantasy series are increasingly in demand on the small screen. This past summer, MTV announced its intentions to get in on the action, ordering a 10-episode first season of Shannara, based on Terry Brooks’ massive fantasy book series. Now, the first bit of casting news for the show has emerged, with word that Downton Abbey actress Poppy Drayton has landed a lead role.

Shannara is set thousands of years in the future, long after our civilization has been destroyed, and follows the Shannara family, whose descendants possess an ancient magic. Their dangerous adventures have the potential to dramatically change the world they live in. This first season, which is written by Smallville creators Al Gough and Miles Millar, will adapt The Elfstones of Shannara, the second book in Brooks’ series.

Drayton will play Amberle Elessedil, an Elven Princess. Strong-willed, quick-witted and physically agile, »

‘The Flash 1×02: The Fastest Man Alive’ Review

17 November 2014 2:52 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Geoff Johns | Directed by David Nutter

Plot:

The Flash goes up against a Man who can physically clone himself multiple times, only to find that his own doubts and his need for calories are slowing him down.

Verdict:

So after a strong pilot episode, how does the second installment of The Flash‘s first season hold up? Very good actually, though there are a few niggles but that is to be expected with a show this young.

So after we have another open narration from Barry, this time poking fun at the numerous Hero monologues that we have heard time and again in the past. We get a cool sequence where the Flash saves a group of civilians from a burning building, before looking somewhat drained by the whole endeavour (which we find out is that Barry has to consume a much larger amount »

2 Trailers for the SyFy Miniseries Ascension

15 November 2014 6:02 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Space exploration in a hot topic in Hollywood right now. Especially with Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar currently out in theaters. The SyFy Channel has a miniseries coming out called Ascension, which tells the story of a group of people who leave earth in 1963 to find a new planet that can be populated with people. The series picks up fifty years later. It definitely seems like it has basically plot idea from Interstellar, only it’s not told on such a grand scale. We’ve got two trailers for the series, as well as a detailed press release that offers up some more details on the story and who stars in the series:

In 1963, the U.S. government launched a covert space mission sending hundreds of men, women and children on a century-long voyage aboard the starship Ascension to populate a new world. Nearly 50 years into the journey, as they approach the point of no return, »

‘The Flash 1×01: Pilot’ Review

14 November 2014 7:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Geoff Johns | Directed by David Nutter

Plot:

When police forensic-expert Barry Allen is struck by lightning, he finds himself with super-speed abilities and with the help of the staff of Star Labs, begins to learn exactly what he can do. But when a murderer reappears with the power to control the weather, Barry has to use his new found power to stop him, thus becoming the fastest man alive.

Verdict:

Well this was a very strong opening episode of CW’s The Flash, a spin-off from CW’s Arrow. And if the latter feels like a TV-scaled thriller/drama (like the Dark Knight), then The Flash feels more like a comic book brought to life and this makes both shows feel completely different from each other, though they have done a stellar job of expressing the fact that they exist in a shared universe. »

‘Arrow 3×01: The Calm’ Review

14 November 2014 5:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Marc Guggenheim, Jake Coburn | Directed by Glen Winter

Plot:

Just as everything is beginning to look up for Team Arrow, with Starling City proclaiming the Vigilante as their savoir and all. A new Count Vertigo appears on the scene and Oliver has to deal with his feelings for Felicity, and he faces losing Queen Consolidated to new arrival Ray Palmer.

Verdict:

After dealing with Slade and his army of Mirakuru infused soldiers last season, you would not blame the show to take it a breather with the episode that followed, hence the title ‘The Calm’.

And things do appear to be going well for Oliver and company, what with him and Roy (just start calling him Arsenal or Red-Arrow, so we can finally start calling Oliver – Green-Arrow already) cleaning up the streets and sending the criminals running for their lives, while Diggle »

The Flash episode 5 review: Plastique

14 November 2014 2:19 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Flash isn't without its teething problems, as proved by this week's adventure featuring Bette Sans Souci...

This review contains spoilers.

1.5 Plastique

Superhero origin stories on television, as with film, are tricky to get right. There are secret identities and emerging powers to deal with, but there are also the villains and sidekicks to establish and a general tone to set. The Flash came out of the gate so strongly that it was easy to dismiss some of the little problems it had with these things but, in week five, there are some lingering issues that really need to be dealt with.

Iris is one such problem and, while fans might be split on whether she's a good fit for Barry as a love interest, that is all that her character functions as right now. Comparing The Flash to Smallville, as it's becoming increasingly easy to do, she's equal parts »

MTV are teaming up with Jon Favreau and Smallville duo Al Gough and Miles Millar to produce a television show based on the 20-strong series of novels (there has been one graphic novel also - The Dark Wraith Of Shannara - published back in 2008) in Terry Brooks' Shannara saga, which has been running for the past 25 years.

Poppy Drayton (Downton Abbey, When Calls The Heart) will play Amberle, an Elf princess. The site describe the character as "agile, fit and capable, she has become the first female to be accepted as one of the Chosen, the special group of Elves responsible for the protection and care of the ancient Ellcrys tree.

'Batman v Superman' Will Feature an Iconic Scene Shot in IMAX

13 November 2014 11:06 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If you don't want to know which iconic moment from the DC comic books was filmed yesterday on the Chicago set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice using IMAX cameras, stop reading now! The rest of this story does contain spoilers...

Last month, photos from the Michigan set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice showed off the Wayne Family mausoleum, located at the Orion Oaks County Park in Lake Orion, Michigan. There, a number of vintage cars were spotted, and it was believed to be a flashback to Bruce Wayne's parents' funeral. Ben Affleck was later spotted on a Smallville funeral set, so it's possible that this modern day moment in the film triggers a flashback to the death of Bruce's mom and dad.

New photos from the Chicago set surfaced yesterday revealing an iconic Gotham location, showing off the movie theater where Bruce's parents are murdered. These »

The Flash 1.3 Blog: Things You Can’t Outrun Review [Contains Spoilers]

12 November 2014 4:15 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Jesse Warn

Writers: Alison Schapker, Grainne Godfree

Cast: Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker, Tom Cavanagh, Carlos Valdes, Rick Cosnett, Jesse L. Martin and Robbie Amell.

Synopsis: As Barry and the team at S.T.A.R. Labs work to capture Kyle Nimbus a.k.a. The Mist, a dangerous new meta-human with toxic gas powers, they revisit the painful night the particle accelerator exploded and killed Caitlin’s fiancé, Ronnie. 

Verdict:

Well here we are, three weeks into the CW’s brand new superhero drama that appears to be the spiritual lovechild of both Smallville and Arrow. However, strangely enough The Flash feels like it has been on the air for much longer than a mere three episodes. Fortunately enough, the DC-based series has managed to get a firm grasp on its characters and narrative structure within an incredibly short amount of time.

‘Supernatural’ at 200: The Road So Far, An Oral History

11 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After 200 episodes, “Supernatural,” which bowed in 2005, has been to hell and back (several times), with a few sojourns to heaven, purgatory, Oz, the past, the post-apocalyptic future and even our world along the way. The show weathered the conversion from The WB to The CW, survived the 2007-08 writers’ strike, and transitioned through several showrunners — and there’s no end in sight. Here, the stars and creative team chart the unlikely journey of the “little show that could.”

Eric Kripke (Creator): For me, the core notion behind “Supernatural” was to make a series about urban legends. I think they’re this incredibly rich mythology about the United States, and no one had really tapped into that, so when I started as a writer, one of the first ideas I ever pitched was an urban legend show.

A couple years later I tried to pitch, basically, a “Scooby Doo” rip »

Few Actors Have Scored Original Song Nominations

10 November 2014 11:30 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Since its premiere at Sundance, Richard Linklater’s Boyhood has been garnering Oscar buzz and rave reviews. The film could score nominations for best picture, director, actor and more, but after submitting three songs to the Academy for consideration in the best original song category, the film could add another nomination. Two of the songs were written by Ethan Hawke, who could garner a best supporting actor nomination for his portrayal of the father. If Hawke receives a best original song nomination for one of his songs, he will join a short list of actors who have scored nominations for songs since 1994.

Both Annette O’Toole and her husband Michael McKean were nominated in 2004, for their song “A Kiss at the End of the Rainbow,” which appeared in 2003’s A Mighty Wind. Well known for her role on Smallville as Martha Kent, O’Toole didn »

Why Life Unexpected Would Have Lasted Six Seasons on The WB

10 November 2014 7:22 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Before The CW launched in the fall of 2006, there was Upn and The WB. Upn aired a limited mount of original series, from Everybody Hates Chris to Veronica Mars, and didn’t really a particular brand or audience it was going after. The WB, on the other hand, had a specific specialty for shows that it aired. In some way or another, these series would grounded in and focused on family. Look at the shows that populated The WB in the early 2000s. You, of course, had Gilmore Girls, which centered around the mother-daughter relationship of Lorelei and Rory. Additionally, there was Everwood, which told the story of a widower trying to find a new beginning with his two kids; One Tree Hill, which explored the nature of family through the relationships of Nathan and Lucas and their connections (or lack thereof) to their mothers, Karen and Deb, and their father, »
