Arrow Season 5 Episode 14 Review: The Sin-Eater

22 February 2017 7:21 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Oliver Queen may not be the Mayor of Star City for much longer. 

That much was hinted at on Arrow Season 5 Episode 14 when he made a string of terrible decisions that led to his reign being called into question. 

Let's talk about revealing the truth to the Acu chief. Oliver took a stab in the dark, and it seemingly worked, but that was wrong on so many levels. 

It could have backfired in his face and unmasked the identities of Team Arrow. The Acu chief was definitely onto Oliver at the end. Oliver speaking the same way he talked earlier (as the mayor!) was plain dumb. 

Considering the way Oliver has been revealing his identity throughout Arrow Season 5, I'm surprised he never came clean to Susan about who he was. 

Plot twist: She already knew. We've witnessed Susan gather her evidence over the past few episodes, and Thea has hated every minute of it. »

Dwayne Johnson teases Rampage script session, confirmed as his next movie

22 February 2017 3:55 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Among the multitude of projects on Dwayne Johnson’s slate is a big screen adaptation of the beloved 80s video game Rampage, and The Rock has taken to Instagram to announce that it is set to be his next movie, with production getting underway in April. Johnson shared the following image, taken during a six-hour script session:

 

The game revolved around three gigantic monsters – a gorilla, lizard and wolf – who have to smash up various buildings whilst fending off the military. Plot details for the movie are being kept under wraps, but it has been confirmed that the three monsters will feature (although I’d be surprised if they’re called George, Lizzie and Ralph).

Rampage will reunite Johnson with his Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and San Andreas director Brad Peyton, while the cast so far includes Naomie Harris (Moonlight),  Joe Manganiello (True Blood) and Marley Shelton (Solace). »

The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Episode 13 Review: The Lies Are Going To Catch Up

18 February 2017 4:07 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Is everyone entitled to redemption?

That question was raised several times on The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Episode 13 as Kai and Stefan sought redemption in their own ways. 

Kai returned to cause more mischief, and despite what most of us thought, his appearance was not a result of Bonnie's sorrow creating that alternate dimension for Enzo (more on that in a little!).

The beauty of Chris Wood's return was that it was evident his appearance would be tied to the return of Elena. I loved that Matt's actions were the reason for Kai's return. 

Just wait to see him try to twist that little nugget of truth and imply it was someone else's fault. Matt Donovan may be getting a lot more screen time this season, but he's also got this huge ego that makes him think he can do no wrong. 

With Kai having one foot in Mystic Falls and the other in hell, »

Yes, Sam Trammell is stirring up some trouble between This Is Us star couple Rebecca (Mandy Moore) and Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) as Rebecca’s flirtatious bandmate Ben. But, allow him to explain his position before you get all riled up about this potential (fictional) relationship roadblock.

“First and foremost  is such a boon to the band,” Trammell, 48, tells People of his character’s primary attraction to and appreciation for Rebecca. “Our band has been kicking around and her singing is so much better than mine as a band leader, so there’s that.

Star Trek: Discovery Adds 30 Rock Vet, Two More to Play Starfleet Officers

13 February 2017 2:56 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Patching up wounds in space has to be easier than attending to Jack Donaghy’s every whim, doesn’t it?

Star Trek: Discovery has added a trio of actors to play Starfleet officers, CBS All Access announced on Monday. And among them is Maulik Pancholy, who played Jack’s (too) loyal assistant Jonathan for seven seasons on NBC’s 30 Rock. Pancholy will play Dr. Nambue, the chief medical officer aboard the Starship Shenzou, Discovery‘s primary vessel. (That makes him the new show’s Bones McCoy, right?)

The Batman: Joe Manganiello Has Already Started His Deathstroke Training

10 February 2017 7:07 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Looks like Joe Manganiello is staying one step ahead of the game. Despite Ben Affleck vacating the director’s chair, Manganiello has now revealed that he’s already started his katana training in preparation for playing Deathstroke in The Batman.

The former True Blood star appeared on a recent episode of the Dragon Talk podcast (via Reddit/Cbm), where converation inevitably turned toward Warner’s gestating solo movie. Last we reported, sources close to WB claimed a preliminary script had been turned in, and it’s one that both Warner Bros. brass and Ben Affleck, who is still attached to produce and star as the Caped Crusader, are reportedly pleased with. In light of Affleck’s departure from the helm, The Batman was purportedly in line for a complete overhaul in the story department, as Warner Bros. looked to start again from scratch.

Joe Manganiello Says He's Started Katana Training For Deathstroke Role In Ben Affleck's Batman Movie

10 February 2017 1:55 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

While speculation continues on whether Deathstroke is still appearing as the main antagonist in Ben Affleck and Warner Bros. Batman movie, Joe Manganiello has revealed that he's preparing for the role despite the project being on shaky ground.  Appearing on the Dragon Talk podcast, the former True Blood and Magic Mike actor revealed that he's read every single Deathstroke comic and started sword training. "I’m somebody that likes to start preparing way ahead of time. So I’ve read almost all the comic books involving him. Just to get the information out of them. Some of them are useful. Some of them are not going to be useful. Because ultimately the script—that’s my text. I have to play that. I started katana training recently. Like live sword training and I started meeting with various martial arts teachers and discussing with them. 'Ok, so what are the most offensive styles of martial arts'. »
