Production Weekly Tweeted the following today: Batman Vs. Superman has opened a production office at Raleigh Michigan Studios in Pontiac. Patrick Tatopoulos on as Production Designer.— Production Weekly (@prodweek) October 30, 2013 You may recognize Patrick Tatopoulos' name as he has served as Production Designer on films such as Total Recall (2012), Live Free or Die Hard, Underworld: Evolution, and the soon to be released 300: Rise of an Empire. Not only that, the man is a jack of all trades behind the camera. Just check out his impressive resume on IMDb. I'm not too familiar with the setup Raleigh has in Pontiac, but I wouldn't rule out the possibility that they will shoot some interiors on soundstages there. I'm still assuming that principal photography shall commence around February 2014 when they start filming in Detroit and at various locations around the state. Being a resident of the area, I'll bring you all »
Welcome to Issue 18 of ‘The Marvelous Da7e!’
Real quick mission statement: this column is for discussion of superhero movie news and superhero movies. Titular allegiance aside, this sphere includes non-Marvel properties.
This week: The goods are out there, someone just needs to put them together!
Well, well, well, ladies and (who am I kidding?) gentleman, New York had it’s Comic Con and it was Just As Big as the San Diego event, despite not having a ton of blockbuster film properties to tout like a painted whore. The IGN Theater in the Javit’s Center is no Hall H and thank god. There’s something about being able to get into panels that – sue me – felt really good.
Granted there were some faux pas by the Nycc PR staff like tweeting from people’s accounts and telling attendees to shower, but all and all, a pretty good Con that was focused on comics. »
As Thor: The Dark World director Alan Taylor has declared on several occasions, Malekith's quarrel in the film goes back 5,000 years; back when Thor's grandfather, Bor, was the Lord of Asgard. With that said, it's not too surprising that we'll get a flashback with Bor and the Accursed Dark Elf villain at some point during the Marvel sequel. This is according to Scottish actor Tony Curran (Gladiator, Underworld: Evolution), who took to his Twitter account to all but confirm the casting. Also, with Odin's father being considered The Architect of Asgard in the comics, Alan Taylor has revealed that the dungeon-like prison in which Loki's seen captive was built by Bor. Anyhow, check out some stills previously seen in the Thor: The Dark World calendar courtesy of @ThorFilms. What do you think? Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles »

Defiance stars Grant Bowler, Jaime Murray, Julie Benz, Jesse Rath, Stephanie Leonidas and Tony Curran and video game producer Rob Hill discuss the hit sci-fi series in this exclusive interview from San Diego Comic-Con 2013 by david j. moore....
SyFy's television show Defiance has had a successful first season run, with an equally successful videogame launch from Trion Worlds. The show, which has run for twelve episodes, covered an enormous amount of ground, introducing dozens of characters - human and alien - all of whom shared a post-apocalyptic Earth as their home. Set in the rebuilding city-state community of Defiance, on the outskirts of St. Louis, the program focuses on a core group of humans and aliens who co-exist some years after an alien invasion rendered most of Earth a dilapidated ruin. Earth, a terra formed apocalyptic remnant of what it used to be, is now inhabited by aliens known as Castithans and Irathients, »
