13 hours ago | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Warner Bros. didn’t make any announcements at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con regarding future DC Comics films, so who knows when we’ll get a Justice League movie. Thankfully, the CW’s excellent series Arrow and new series The Flash are here to fulfill all of our fangirl/fanboy desires while we wait for an actual Jl team-up onscreen.

This fall,  Arrow and The Flash are diving deeper into the DC Universe, bringing many favorites from the comics to the screen. Ra’s Al Ghul, Wildcat, Atom, and Katana will all be introduced on Arrow this season, and »

Win Tickets To The Advance Screening Of Into The Storm In St. Louis

28 July 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

From New Line Cinema, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, comes the tornado disaster film Into The Storm. Steven Quale (“Final Destination 5”) directs the film, which is produced by Todd Garner (“Zookeeper,” “Knight and Day”).

In the span of a single day, the town of Silverton is ravaged by an unprecedented onslaught of tornadoes. The entire town is at the mercy of the erratic and deadly cyclones, even as storm trackers predict the worst is yet to come. Most people seek shelter, while others run towards the vortex, testing how far a storm chaser will go for that once-in-a-lifetime shot.

Told through the eyes and lenses of professional storm chasers, thrill-seeking amateurs, and courageous townspeople, Into The Storm throws you directly into the eye of the storm to experience Mother Nature at her most extreme.

The film stars Richard Armitage (“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug »

Ra's al Ghul is coming to 'Arrow' and Ep Marc Guggenheim offers details

27 July 2014 12:04 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

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, »

Wbtv's Night of DC Entertainment brings 'Gotham,' 'Flash' and more to Hall H: Live-Blog

Panel time! We've watched the "Gotham" and "Flash" pilots and seen hints from "Constantine" and "Arrow," including the reveal that Ra's al Ghul will be the Big Bad on Season 3. Geoff Johns is moderating and... Let's go! 10:05 p.m. The size of this panel is utterly insane. It's basically the full casts of All Four Shows. In rows. On the Hall H stage. 10:07 p.m. Angelica Celaya is the biggest panel surprise. She's the newest "Constantine" star and she started work yesterday. 10:08 p.m. "It's kinda crazy to see the universe represented like this," Johns says. 10:08 p.m. Where did "Gotham" come from and why start with the death of the Waynes, Johns asks. "Origin stories are my favorite part of the mythologies of the DC Universe," Bruno Heller says. He found it natural to start with the beginning of the process and "What is more »

Justin Bieber may have killed Brian and other 'Family Guy' Comic-Con highlights

26 July 2014 2:43 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Family Guy" hit Ballroom 20 on Saturday (July 26) for its annual Comic-Con panel, an event with kinda tends to ebb and flow in hype based on whether or not Seth MacFarlane is there to mock question-askers.  This was a second consecutive Seth MacFarlane-free year. Last year he was working on "A Million Ways To Die In The West." This year, his absence was unexplained [on the "Family Guy" panel, but it came up at "American Dad" subsequently] and raises the possibility that Seth MacFarlane has just become too big for making fun of questioners at Comic-Con. Fortunately, in lieu of Seth MacFarlane, the "Family Guy" team arrived with a longer clip reel for the season's hour-long "The Simpsons Guy" crossover event, which will air on September 28. At TCA press tour last week we got a very brief sizzle reel that included jokes about the Springfield location ("I can't imagine we're allowed to »

If you’ve always wondered what would happen if Peter Griffin and Homer Simpson hung out at a bar while Bart and Stewie made prank phone calls, Family Guy is about to satisfy your crossover craving. In the Sept. 28 season premiere, “The Simpsons Guy,” the albino Griffins wind up by accident in Springfield, where they are greeted warmly by the hepatits-y Simpsons. But a fast friendship christened with delicious doughnuts may be forever destroyed by an argument over Pawtucket Patriot Ale and Duff Beer, which leads to an epic chicken fight.

Comic-Con: ‘Family Guy’ Producers on ‘Simpsons’ Crossover and Movie Plans

26 July 2014 2:02 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Family Guy’s” Comic-Con panel kicked off with a preview of the show’s much-anticipated Sept. 28 crossover with “The Simpsons,” in which the Griffin family visits Springfield.

Among the highlights from the sneak peek: Homer and Peter eat donuts and realize they have a lot in common; Bart and Stewie prank call Moe’s Tavern (and it escalates quickly); Peter attempts to get Homer to set up a cutaway gag; Bob from “Bob’s Burgers” makes an appearance; Stewie and Bart go skateboarding; Homer and Peter discover some unnerving similarities between Duff and Pawtucket Patriot Ale; and the duo get into a predictably destructive fight across Springfield’s most notable locations.

“Simpsons” creator Matt Groening also appeared during the panel to ask for the producers’ advice on how a young, struggling animator could break into the business, and told them to kiss his ass a little more.

Seth MacFarlane Sued Over Swearing ‘Ted’

16 July 2014 1:25 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Seems like Family Guy creator, Seth MacFarlane is in a spot of trouble as a company attempts to sue him over his teddy bear creation, Ted.

Bengal Mangle Productions have claimed that Ted is an unlawful copy of their animated bear from web series, Charlie The Abusive Teddy, that was aired in 2009 and 2010 on YouTube and FunnyOrDie.com. They said that Charlie and Ted both have strong similarities with one another, as they spend most of the time sitting on the living room couch, drinking and smoking. Also, their mannerisms such as swearing and attitudes to things are substantially the same they added and what’s even more bizarre is that they also bought in Twitter accounts in to the argument, saying they too copy the tone of Charlie.

Seth MacFarlane and Universal Pictures have not commented on the situation, but expect more information as the weeks go by.

Web Series Creators Sue Seth MacFarlane Over Precursor To ‘Ted’

16 July 2014 11:38 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Seth MacFarlane's Ted hit theaters more than two years ago, but a production company is still peeved about the comedy film's similarity to an earlier web series. Bengal Mangle Productions has sued the Family Guy creator over Ted's apparent likeness to Charlie The Abusive Teddy Bear, a foul-mouthed stuffed animal they created four years before the release of Ted. The facts of the suit are fairly straightforward: Bengal Mangle created Charlie as a character in their web series Acting School Academy, and he latest received his own self-titled spinoff. Like Ted, Charlie is verbally abusive, chain-smoking alcoholic who hangs out on a couch, cracks dirty jokes, and holds an affinity for prostitutes. The suit, as first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, claims that Ted "is strikingly similar to plaintiffs' Charlie character," and it claims unspecified damages for alleged copyright infringement.

Could the 'Ted' Lawsuit Keep 'Ted 2' From Happening?

16 July 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Apparently Seth MacFarlane isn't the only one who thinks a teddy bear that talks, drinks, smokes, and, uh, does other adult things is a funny idea. The "Family Guy" fella is being sued by Bengal Mangle Productions, which alleges that "Ted" borrows heavily from its own foul-mouthed teddy bear Charlie. Charlie appears in the web series "Charlie The Abusive Teddy" and "Acting School Academy," and the plaintiffs point out quite a few similarities between the two terrible teddies, from outrageous tweets to the way they verbally abuse others.

The lawsuit alleges, "Both Charlie and Ted reside in a substantially similar environment, including that both Charlie and Ted spend a significant amount of time sitting on a living room couch with a beer and/or cigarette in hand... Charlie and Ted each have a substantially similar persona, verbal tone, verbal delivery, dialogue, and attitude." There's more, of course, but it all involves teddy bears being awful, »

Lawsuit claims Seth MacFarlane stole the idea for 'Ted'

16 July 2014 9:58 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

It appears that Ted might not be the only foul-mouthed teddy bear on the planet.

In a new lawsuit, Bengal Mangle Productions claims that Seth MacFarlane stole the idea behind Ted. The Hollywood Reporter got a copy of the complaint, which also names Fuzzy Door Productions, Media Rights Capital, and Universal Studios, and says the character of Ted was taken from a screenplay titled Acting School Academy, which came out in 2008 and featured another foul-mouthed teddy bear named Charlie. In the screenplay, Charlie lives in an adult world with his human friends and “has a penchant for drinking, smoking, prostitutes. »
