I might be the only person to think this, but watching the Game of Thrones blooper reel unveiled at Comic-Con this weekend was a tremendously disconcerting experience.
Years Ive spent years! developing an all-encompassing hatred for King Joffrey, to the extent that I cant even watch his brief scene in Batman Begins any more without wishing that Batman would just pick the little git up by the scruff of his neck and chuck him off a balcony. And yet now heres Jack Gleeson pulling an adorable scrunched-up face and looking for all the world like a perfectly decent person. Its a good job hes dead now, or else Id feel incredibly short-changed.

Check out the trailer below.

Arrow fans were in for a special treat when series star Stephen Amell pressed play on the previously released preview trailer from the action-packed series' upcoming third season, featuring footage of Colton Haynes in the Arsenal costume, Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer and Karl Yune as Maseo. But Amell also had a Saturday night surprise up his sleeve - a new ending to the trailer which revealed that a nightmare is coming: Ra's al Ghul! Arrow returns Wednesday, October 8, at 8/7c on The CW. Take a look at the extended trailer below, then read on for more information from executive producers Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg.
The trailer debuted during Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment's massive three-hour panel, which was hosted by Stephen Amell. After the panel, executive producer Marc Guggenheim revealed that Ra's al Ghul's introduction had been in the works for quite some time.
"It really happened »
Yesterday the DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. TV announced that the main villain of Arrow season 3 will be Ra's al Ghul! They've been talking about him for awhile now, and he'll finally make his appearance. They even released a new trailer teasing the villain.
Executive producer Marc Guggenheim talked about the character in an interview with THR.
"It really happened very organically in the sense that we had this notion that in episode 16 we were going to reveal that Malcolm Merlyn was trained by the League of Assassins and that's because that's because of the comic book. We were like, you know what we're going to do? We're going to get away with a little reference about a guy in Nanda Parbat who changed his life. That was just the beginning."
They started teasing the character in the season two episode Broken Dolls, and Guggenheim explained,
"We just slowly started »

Batman’s enemy is becoming Oliver Queen’s: A new Arrow trailer reveals that Ra’s al Ghul will be the season-three villain.
The Arrow team released a trailer yesterday—sans villain—and then released an updated trailer featuring some mysterious shots of Ra’s al Ghul, who Liam Neeson played in both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight Rises, later that evening at Comic-Con.
Before the villain’s identity was announced, Arrow executive producer Andrew Kreisberg spoke with EW about the upcoming season and claimed the new Big Bad isn’t so different from series protagonist Oliver. “He doesn »

Despite all those mentions of Ra's Al Ghul during season two of Arrow, many fans thought we would never actually get to see the well-known Batman villain in the series. Well, he's coming, as you can see from the new trailer below! We don't get to see who will be playing Ra's here and the role hasn't actually been cast as of yet according to those working on the series, but The CW have been picking some very recognisable names for these roles lately, so expect it to be a familiar face. It's an exciting time to be a fan of Arrow as a number of characters from the comic books will be making their live-action debuts this year, including the recently confirmed Wildcat! Ra's Al Ghul was last seen in Batman Begins, played by Liam Neeson. Check out the teaser below »
After much fan speculation about Arrow‘s “Big Bad” for season three, it’s finally been made official: the Demon’s Head himself, Ra’s al Ghul, is making his way to Starling City.
The news was announced at San Diego Comic-Con during the Warner Bros./DC TV panel in Hall H late Saturday night. The announcement was followed by some comments from executive producer Marc Guggenheim, who stated that the seeds for Ra’s’ arrival had been planted very early on:
“It really happened very organically in the sense that we had this notion that in episode 16 we were going to reveal that Malcolm Merlyn was trained by the League of Assassins and that’s because that’s because of the comic book. We were like, you know what we’re going to do? We’re going to get away with a little reference about a guy in Nanda Parbat who changed his life. »

One things fans can never complain about the CW’s Arrow is a lack of DC Comics characters. Over the course of the show’s two seasons we’ve seen countless villains and heroes from the comics, and that trend will continue as we head into year three. We’ve already seen characters like Ray Palmer a.k.a. The Atom (played by Superman Returns‘ Brandon Routh), the New 52 version of Count Vertigo (Fargo‘s Peter Stormare) and Katana (Sin City‘s Devon Aoki) join the ranks, and now we have two more names to add to that list.
The first new addition is Ted Grant, a.k.a. Wildcat, a championship boxer who served as a mentor and trainer to several younger heroes including Black Canary and Batman. He’s a seminal member of the Justice Society of America, and has been seen in several DC animated series like »

The "Arrow" Season 3 tease that played at Saturday's (July 27) Warner Bros. Television Presents a Night of DC Entertainment in Hall H was identical to the teaser that played before the Ballroom 20 panel on Friday. Well, not in All ways. As Night of DC Entertainment Mc Stephen Amell teased easier, the only difference in the sizzle reel was the last 15 seconds. And what a difference those 15 seconds made, as they set up this "Arrow" season's big DC Comics' addition, noted League of Assassins frontman Ra's al Ghul, a character best known to the widest audience from Liam Neeson's performance in "Batman Begins." The character was name-dropped repeatedly last season on "Arrow" and his daughter Nyssa made several appearances tied to the origin story of Sara Lance as Black Canary. Check out the teaser. I hesitate to call Ra's al Ghul this "Arrow" season's Big Bad, because within this universe, »

We don't officially have a category for "swag", but this falls into that classification. As a big space nerd and sci-fi lover, I can't help but share this nifty bit of swag from Comic-Con that I picked up today. During the Paramount panel yesterday, where they surprised fans in Hall H by bringing out Interstellar director Christopher Nolan and Matthew McConaughey (read our full recap of that panel), the studio handed out tickets to be redeemed for a "prize". That prize? The mission patch from Interstellar, for the "Endurance" Space Exploration mission. It's small piece of swag, it's nerdy, but it's also kind of awesome. In full below. Here's the mission patch that was handed as a prize for those who were at Paramount's Comic-Con panel. Recap our coverage of Interstellar at Comic-Con here, including quotes from Nolan and McConaughey. Interstellar is directed by British filmmaker Christopher Nolan, of the films Doodlebug, »

Christopher Nolan unveiled some of Interstellar at Comic-Con yesterday. The director making his debut appearance at the con, addressed the surprised masses in Hall H “I heard a lot about this being the place where people are most passionate about pop culture and movies. I thought it would be fun to come down and see what all the fuss is about.” Much to the delight of attendees, Nolan unveiled the latest trailer, which is unreleased as of yet, but according to reports it gives alot more of the story and possible alien landscapes were shown. The Batman Begins director also told the crowd “I grew up in a time when to be an astronaut was the highest ambition. The idea that we’d keep exploring space, pushing farther and farther out, seemed inevitable. I felt that had fallen off greatly over the past couple of decades. I really like the »

Set to close the 39th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival is the sophomore directorial effort of Alan Rickman who is best known for being the source of villainy in Die Hard (1988) and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991). “It is a great privilege for A Little Chaos to have its world premiere in Toronto and for it to be given the Festival’s closing night Gala, but it is also a very personal pleasure,” stated Rickman. “I have filmed in the city, visited often, and some of my closest friends live there. It will be like coming home.”
The historical drama stars Kate Winslet as Sabine De Barra an unconventional landscaper who is tasked with designing one of the fountains at The Palace of Versailles while contending with uncooperative weather, rivalries at the court of Louis Xiv and her own personal demons. Performing alongside Winslet are Stanley Tucci, Alan Rickman and Matthias Schoenaerts. »

The first few pages of Frank Miller's script for the shelved Batman: Year One have a disturbed Bruce Wayne waking up from chronic nightmares, some nameless prostitutes being slapped around by their pimp, and Jim Gordon putting a gun in his mouth.
You can see why Warner Bros didn't ultimately go for the project, which was to be helmed by Darren Aronofsky and would have rewritten the Bat mythology even more radically than Miller already had in his comic book arc of the same name.
"Our take was to infuse the Batman franchise with a dose of reality," Aronofsky has said, citing The French Connection and Taxi Driver among his influences. "We tried to ask that eternal question, 'What does it take for a real man to put on tights and fight crime?'" It's an approach not far from the one ultimately taken by Christopher Nolan in Batman Begins, »

In some alternate universe, Warner Bros. and DC’s 2006 Superman Returns was an extension of their 2005 reboot Batman Begins, ushering in a new interconnected movie universe ahead of Marvel Studios. That didn’t happen, of course. Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy exists as an Elseworlds-type of self-contained story, standing apart from the newly established DC Movie Universe created by last year’s Superman reboot, Man of Steel.
Marvel, in contrast, patiently and carefully built up their own universe, starting with Iron Man (2008), peaking commercially with the 2012 Superhero All-Star Jam The Avengers, which was then augmented by the ABC television series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Now that DC and Warner Bros. is continuing their Man of Steel world-building with Batman v Superman: Dawn ...

For this week’s quiz we were going to tie in to the release of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes by keeping it simple with one question: what the hell happened at the end of the 2001 reboot? But hey, even Tim Burton couldn’t answer that one, so instead, with the San Diego Comic Con-International on the horizon we’ve decided it’s high time we tested your knowledge of superhero movies. So, if you’re feeling confident, take the quiz below and see how many of the 25 superhero movies you can name – and don’t forget to share your score for all to see…

Chronicle director Josh Trank’s The Fantastic Four reboot is one of the most mysterious comic book movies coming down the pipeline. Outside of its cast – which includes Miles Teller as Reed Richards, Kata Mara as the Invisible Woman/Sue Storm, Michael B. Jordan as her brother Johnny/the Human Torch, Jamie Bell as The Thing, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes‘ Toby Kebbell as Doctor Doom – we know nothing about the plot or direction that the film will take. We’ve heard several rumblings that it will be “more grounded,” akin to something like Batman Begins, and tell a coming-of-age story… but that could be said about almost any major reboot that’s in development.
In a new interview with Esquire Mexico, Mara spoke a bit about Trank’s direction on the film, and how she feels about playing the iconic superheroine:
“I don’t feel more »

The upcoming reboot of the “The Fantastic Four” movie has been described by the screenwriter, Simon Kinberg as “real, gritty and grounded.” The writer/producer even said the Josh Trank-directed movie was akin to “Batman Begins.” Now if you know the original “Fantastic Four” movies with Chris Evans and Jessica Alba, you know those films are nothing like “Batman Begins.” They’re much more in line with the comic—a bit goofy, broad and silly (which is why Tim Story’s movies might be terrible, but they were in the spirit of the comics). So more and more, “The Fantastic Four” movie that 20th Century Fox is putting on for 2015 sounds like a massive reinvention. For one, Johnny Storm, aka The Human Torch, won’t be a Caucasian, he’ll be played by African-American actor Michael B. Jordan. In a feature titled “How The 'Fantastic Four' Reboot Might Be Changing Canon, »
