To coincide with its world premiere at WonderCon tonight, Warner Bros. has released a new clip from Son of Batman, the latest instalment in the direct-to-video DC Universe Animated Original Movies series, which sees Batman and Robin taking on a swarm of Man-Bats; check it out after the official synopsis…
Hidden atop a secret mountain stronghold lies the League of Shadows and its fearless leader, Ra’s al Ghul. Together with his equally dangerous daughter Talia, he oversees a trained army of assassins with plans for global domination. But an uprising from within the league now threatens to shift the balance of power and sends Talia and her young son, Damian, fleeing to Gotham City.

With his son in tow, Batman wages war against the villain Deathstroke and the League of Shadows, »

As much as I'd love it, I doubt we will ever see a Firefly adventure brought to life again. If it never happens as a live action project, it would be pretty awesome to see it turned into an animated adventure. Here's great illustration by Stephen Byrne that gives us an idea of what the crew of Serenity might look in the style of a Disney animated production. Joss Whedon actually tweeted the art with the following comment,
"There's art, then there's Great Art…"

If you ask practically any fan of Firefly, they'll tell you that the show was cancelled too soon, and needs to come back as soon as possible. There's been a movie continuation, Serenity, and a few spin-off Serenity comics, and while any 'Verse is better than no 'Verse, there's so much potential that it would be a shame not to have another Firefly series on our screens. With its atypical yet brilliant world-building, hilariously quotable dialogue, and literally the best cast dynamic ever, Firefly was a little slice of perfection.
In recent years, fans have got behind the idea of an animated series, with various artists even drawing up fan art of the characters.
While such a statement could easily apply to Firefly itself, fan creativity (of whatever kind »
Ahead of its upcoming WonderCon premiere this coming Friday, Warner Bros. has debuted a new clip and three images from the upcoming DC Universe Animated Original Movies release Son of Batman, which we’ve got for you right here…

Trevor Hogg chats with Kel Symons about movies, comic books and submerging himself with an swashbuckling tale…
“My mother was an Rn, and my father was a lawyer,” states Kel Symons. “Though I think my dad semi-secretly wished he’d become a writer; I know he was a huge movie fan and helped inform my taste for the same. My brother played music for a while, and did some acting, but mostly in high school. I’m told one of my uncles on my mother’s side wrote and directed local theatre, but I don’t really know them.” The object of affection for Betty and Veronica as well as the space opera staring Luke Skywalker were part of the childhood reading repertoire. “I wasn’t really allowed to read superhero comics growing up. I could only read stuff like Archie & Jughead, Richie Rich, and Scrooge McDuck – that sort of thing. »

The car featured in Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen.
Navigating the rows of rare back-issues, original artwork, and collectible merchandise can be pretty tough when you’re competing with tens of thousands of people. Except when you’re at Wizard World and are among such like-minded enthusiasts of comics and pop-culture, than you feel more like a wide-eyed 10 yr. old and don’t necessarily mind running into a random Princess Leia or a Joker from The Dark Knight. Wizard World added St. Louis to its multi-city roster last year and fans swarmed the America’s Center Convention Hall. This year was no different. Well . . . I should clarify there was one big difference. But I don’t think fans complained about the event increasing in size to fill the entire Edward Jones Dome! Where else but at Wizard World can you say that former Batman Adam West, Nathan Fillion, and Eliza Dushku »

Having worked with writer-director James Gunn on his debut feature, Slither, talk has long been circulating about wanting a reunion between Gunn and the beloved Nathan Fillion on Guardians of the Galaxy, and it looks like everyone’s hopes might well be coming true.
Over the weekend, St. Louis’ Wizard World Comic-Con held a Firefly panel featuring Fillion alongside co-stars Adam Baldwin and Alan Tudyk, and when asked the question about whether he wanted a part in Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, the actor responded with a brilliant tease, intimating that he in fact did get a part.
“Wanting to get a part… Or maybe… did. I’m just saying maybe. Maybe you’ll be surprised. Maybe. Check the credits.”

If you're a superhero movie fan, this year has lots of potential in store, and the first of these films is out now. Whether you're a fan of the genre or not, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is worth watching. What follows is a non-spoilery look at five of the main reasons why.
The film combines the intensity and intrigue of an action-packed political thriller, the audacity of comic book storytelling, and the emotional realism of Marvel movie consultant Joss Whedon's work.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier isn't just for superhero movie fans. It's basically a political thriller, along the lines of the Bourne films or Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy. Part of that involves discussion of real-world themes, like whether the ends justify the means, and if it's worth sacrificing freedom for order. As with the aforementioned franchises, a large part of how the story plays out is in the action sequences. »
During an appearance at Wizard World Comic-Con in St. Louis over the weekend, Nathan Fillion teased that he may have a role in this summer's Guardians of the Galaxy. While this is the first we're hearing about his appearance, it shouldn't come as too big a surprise, since he starred in both of Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn's previous features (Slither and Super) and worked with Marvel's Joss Whedon on the cult classic TV series Firefly. Take a look at the video below where, at the 38:30 mark, Nathan Fillion makes his surprise revelation, when asked by a fan if he wanted to get a part in Guardians of the Galaxy. Is it at all possible that he will appear for just a brief second as that other intergalactic 'Star-Lord' Captain Mal Reynolds? Anything is possible...
"Wanting to get a part... or maybe did. I'm just saying maybe. »
Nathan Fillion is no stranger to space travel, thanks to his starring roles in the short-lived series "Firefly" and its film spin-off, "Serenity." Could a trip to join the "Guardians of the Galaxy" be next?
Fillion played it coy when asked about the possibility of a cameo in director James Gunn's upcoming Marvel flick, though his non-committal reply certainly makes it seem likely that fans will get a flitting Fillion "Guardians" appearance. Asked during a recent convention panel about whether he wanted a part in the film, Fillion had this to say:
Wanting to get a part ... or maybe did. I'm just saying maybe. Maybe you'll be surprised. Maybe. Check the credits.
"Maybe" certainly isn't "definitely," though we can't help but think that that response was heavy on the implication that a "Guardians" cameo is in the cards for the actor. Plus, Fillion has already worked with Gunn on the big screen, »

Easily one of the most requested actors for the Marvel universe – especially since Joss Whedon became a part of it – is Firefly star Nathan Fillion. It makes sense in many ways, since he has had experience both as a space explorer and as a superhero (the, ahem, noble Captain Hammer), so what better place to feature him than in James Gunn’s upcoming galactic adventure Guardians of the Galaxy?
Fillion has so far starred in two of Gunn’s feature films, Slither and Super, and now he’s dropped hints about a possible cameo appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy as well. During a Firefly panel at Wizard World Comic Con last weekend, Fillion was asked by a ...

Some filmmakers develop a troupe of people they work with over and over again because of talent, sometimes it's because people just get along well, and sometimes it's both. Judging from the growth of a particular filmmaker's influence on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a lot of people seem to respect the work of and really get along with Joss Whedon. For this reason, it's not a huge surprise that, while the director is working with the megastars of Avengers: Age Of Ultron, other past Whedon collaborators have been finding their way into the comic book world. Could one of them be an old fan favorite? Possible spoilers from here on out. At the recent St. Louis Comic-Con there was a special panel reuniting the cast of the Whedon-created television series Firefly. During the event, a fan asked Nathan Fillion a question about James Gunn's Guardians Of The Galaxy... and »
Over the weekend at the Wizard World Comic Con, Nathan Fillion teased fans that he might have a cameo in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy. When asked if he wanted a part in the film, the actor replied with, “wanting to get a part….or maybe did.” He then got fans even more excited when he said, “maybe you’ll be surprised. Maybe. Check the credits.”
Of course, this is far from official confirmation. For all we know, Fillion could just be having fun with those who were in attendance at the Firefly panel that was taking place at convention. Then again, that’s a pretty big tease and given the actor’s history with both Gunn and Marvel king Joss Whedon, it’s very possible that he may have a cameo in the film.
Whether he’ll actually play a significant character/role is another question entirely, »

Having worked frequently with and become good friends of both Joss Whedon and James Gunn, Nathan Fillion has been longtime rumored, or favored, for a role in Marvel Studios' ever-growing cinematic universe. While the actor has previously declared being tied up with ABC's Castle series and “not being famous enough” as reasons why he has yet to play a Marvel character, Fillion attended the Wizard World Comic-Con over the weekend, where he was asked by a fan if he was wanting a part in this summer's Guardians of the Galaxy. “Wanting to get a part… or maybe did,” Nathan Fillion responded. He then paused before adding, “I’m just saying maybe. Maybe you’ll be surprised. Maybe. Check the credits.” Guardians of the Galaxy recently wrapped reshoots, for which director James Gunn has hinted involving: “Anything we want, but didnt get,...something to make the movie better,...cool cameo idea. »
With Captain America: The Winter Soldier now in theaters, Marvel Studios' next big screen release is the penultimate "Phase Two" entry, Guardians of the Galaxy , written and directed by James Gunn. Since "Firefly" and "Castle" star Nathan Fillion has worked quite a bit with Gunn in the past, one fan asked him during a St. Louis Comic-Con panel whether or he wanted a part in the August 1 release. "[Want] to get a part?" Fillion said with a smirk. "Or maybe did. I'm just saying maybe. Maybe it'll be a surprise. Maybe check the credits of the movie when you watch it." As you can see in the video below (posted to YouTube by fan "Jamie K."), Fillion's tone makes it a pretty solid bet that he'll be appearing in »

Dollhouse is the forgotten trinket in the toy store that is the Whedonverse. Initially met with mixed reviews and unceremoniously cancelled after two seasons, Dollhouse seems to be relegated to creator Joss Whedon’s junior varsity team in favor of the fully realized worlds of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer or its’ counterpart Angel. Even the short-lived Firefly had Serenity, a movie spinoff offering a sense of closure to fans of the short-lived series. Instead, those who tuned in to the show quickly abandoned it, and Dollhouse is now whispered under the breath by Whedonites. If mentioned at all.
The show is certainly not without its share of problems. A good chunk of the first season feels unfocused and generic in the first batch of stand alone episodes. Dependent upon the performance of an uneven at best, downright shaky at worst Eliza Dushku, Dollhouse’s attempt to »

Dost thou have the insatiable appetite for LARPing role-players, mystical creatures, and foul spells of horror that would make even the bravest of knights rust their armor? Ah, yes, it’s with great sorrow that Joe Lynch’s Knights of Badassdom Director’s Cut was snatched from our possession by feudal kings drunk on power, but the cut we’re left with still sweetly smells of Lynch’s love for invigorated genre work. Whist commoners pretend to know the valor and bravery of knighthood, Lynch gives untested souls the chance to fight real monsters and cast true spells of wizardry – what one can only presume is a LARPer’s dream. Brandish some cold hard steel and vanquish your enemy for good, what sounds better than such a quest?! Oh, right, not having your face torn off by a succubus – but that’s what makes this geeky horror comedy so damn endearing. »
