Angela Holmes is an ordinary 27-year-old until she begins to have a devastating effect on anyone close, causing serious injury and death.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice came as the surprise announcement of Comic-Con 2013, and it's ridden a wild wave of rumor and speculation ever since. For the past two years, we've heard every possible scenario for the movie. We've been told a number of different stories. And we know that there is still a surprise or two left to be had when it finally opens in March 2016. We're still almost a year away from release. And when it comes right down to it, there is still quite a bit that we don't know. But after two years of hustle and bustle, there's quite a bit that we do. And this is all of it that you should know!

With the current comic book boom under way, you’d expect Marvel to show some love for their first-ever character—Prince Namor, the Sub-Mariner. Since legal entanglements prevent Namor from showing up in a film, why not allow the king of the seas to meet the Agents of Shield?
Last year, it was reported that Marvel has ‘mostly’ regained the rights to the character of the Sub-Mariner, but with some confusing legal hurdles. Marvel’s big boss Kevin Feige has said, “There are entanglements that make it less easy. There are older contracts that still involve other parties that mean we need to work things out before we move forward on it.” So for the time being, Prince Namor languishes in limbo, while less popular characters like Ant-Man and the Black Panther beat him to the screen. This is ironic because the Sub-Mariner is the first character the company ever made, »

The Performer | Lena Headey
The Show | Game of Thrones
The Episode | “Mother’s Mercy” (June 14)
The Performance | If we hadn’t recognized Lena Headey for her devastating turn in Game of Thrones‘ fifth season finale, we would’ve deserved a walk of shame of our own. During the course of the episode, Headey took the Queen Regent — already at a personal low after weeks held in the High Sparrow’s prison — to Cersei’s nadir. Headey elegantly wove her character’s haughty nature into even the most groveling of confessions; though Cersei admitted to sinning, the actress’ face showed that »

There really aren't anywhere near enough female superheroes in comic book movies, but things look set to get a lot better after Scarlet Witch's introduction in Avengers: Age of Ultron and the upcoming releases starring Captain Marvel and Wonder Woman. On the small screen, Supergirl will be getting a series of her own this Fall as well. It's an exciting time! Anyway, when it comes to filling these roles, movie studios turn to some of the world's most beautiful actresses, and you will find a list of the ten best right here. Agree? Disagree? As always, let us know your thoughts below... 15. Helen Slater The movie wasn't great, but Helen Slater made 1984's Supergirl easy to watch. She played Lara-El in Smallville and will return to the DC Comics world as Supergirl's mom in the new TV show. 14. Rosario Dawson She was great in Daredevil as the nurse who »
Last week brought the news that Lionsgate will be hitting Comic-Con's famed Hall H with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 and Cannes hit Sicario, and now AMC has staked their claim at the San Diego media bonanza. The indomitable cable channel will also be in Hall H for panels devoted to The Walking Dead and it's upcoming, Kim Dickens-led spin-off Fear the Walking Dead. Not-unfounded suspicions suggest that new footage from the spin-off will premiere at the panel and, just maybe, the hugely anticipated casting of Walking Dead's most dangerous nemesis, Negan, the role which everyone from Jon Hamm to Stephen Dillane has been rumored to be circling. Oh, and probably more stuff about the Wolves. [caption id="attachment_472615" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via AMC[/caption] Along with the Walking Dead series, AMC will also devote a panel to the Daniel Wu-starring martial-arts action-drama Into The Badlands, a mini-series comprised of six hour-long episodes on AMC. »

AMC has released the first photos for “Into the Badlands,” its upcoming saga that stars Daniel Wu as a well-trained warrior who embarks on a journey across a dangerous land to find enlightenment. Accompanying him on his journey is a young boy named M.K. (Aramis Knight).
“Into the Badlands” was created by writer-showrunners Al Gough and Miles Millar (“Shanghai Noon,” “Smallville”) and is based on the classic Chinese story “Journey to the West.” It stands as another example of TV’s martial arts-focused drama trend.
“I think there’s a great variety of martial arts that you can call on,” Gough told Variety last year, adding, “Oftentimes, it’s a fight that comes down to two characters, and television has an intimacy that really lends itself to that.”
The six-episode series bows later this year. It is currently filming in New Orleans. Gough and Miller serve as executive producers »

If you're one of those frustrated over the quality of many of the blockbusters that make it to the inside of a multiplex, then ponder the following. For each of these were supposed to be major projects, that for one reason or another, stalled on their way to the big screen. Some still may make it. But for many others, the journey is over. Here are the big blockbusters that never were...
The late Michael Crichton scored another residential on the bestseller list with his impressive thriller, Airframe. It was published in 1996, just after films of Crichton works such as Jurassic Park, Rising Sun, Disclosure and the immortal Congo had proven to be hits of various sizes.

James looks back at 7 previous X-Men TV shows to see what Fox's in-development series could do well to emulate and avoid...
If recent reports are to be believed, Fox is planning to bring the X-Men franchise to the TV in some form or another, doubtlessly hoping to compete with Marvel and DC's ever-growing stable of shows.
And why not? The X-Men are no strangers to television, with a surprising number of TV appearances under their belts. So what are they like, and what can Fox learn from them as it attempts to bring a new X-Men TV series to life?
This 30-minute animated short was produced as a pilot for an animated X-Men show and mostly used the 1970s Claremont/Byrne era team as its basis, though with one obvious exception. Had Marvel gone ahead, we'd have seen a team consisting of Professor X, »
Since Star Trek: The Motion Picture in 1979, the Star Trek cinematic outings have proved to be a smorgasbord of references and famous actors (or those who would go on to be), and often had complex behind the scenes events that stopped some rather, ahem, fascinating moments making it to the final version. We found lots of nerdy spots in the first six films here.
This time out we look at the films featuring the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation and choose 47 factoids. Granted, there's a lot more than that of interest, but we've tried for ones that you might not be aware of.
Oh, and there are some major spoilers...

With Mad Max: Fury Road currently melting minds at multiplexes worldwide, it seems like the right time to remind everyone that the film's director, George Miller, was once set to helm a Justice League movie back around 2008. The project was known as Justice League: Mortal and it was far more than an unproduced script. A full cast was in place, sets and costumes were in production from Weta Workshop, and filming was all set to begin in Australia before things got...complicated.
It's a shame, too. Based on the script I read, Justice League: Mortal would have been a fairly impressive, very recognisable representation of DC's flagship super team. It also would have beaten The Avengers to the big screen by at least a couple of years.

How to be a Superhero
By Mark Edlitz
Bear Manor Media, 586 pages, $42.95/$29.95
Longtime readers of pop culture magazines have no doubt read interviews with actors who have donned capes, cowls, spandex, and prosthetics to portray heroes and villains drawn from comic books. I certainly was involved in my fair share of such interviews working at Starlog Press and its successors have continued, especially contemporary online outlets which are enjoying a bonanza of options.
Most of those interviews tend to be about the most immediate project with little insight or context about an actor’s association with a media property or being the latest in a long line to play the same role. And certainly, these interviews are sandwiched between news, features, and other topics. So, it’s a bit of a surprise that such a collection has not been attempted before.
