Barbara Gordon is big news. Right now Batgirl is kicking up a right load of fuss thanks to an ill-judged variant cover for an upcoming issue of her solo book – artist Rafael Albuquerque’s Joker tie-in recalled the classic story The Killing Joke, which saw the Clown Prince Of Crime shoot and cripple the heroine, with some implied sexual assault thrown in for bad measure. It’s a creepy, haunting image.
Which is also totally wrong for a book which has fought to escape the dark history of the character, pitched directly at a younger, hipper and more female audience than your average comic book. Smartly, DC and Albuquerque decided to cancel that particular variant. It was probably the right call, despite what a vocal minority might tell you.
Anyway, the whole episode has thrown a larger spotlight than Batgirl’s had on her for a while now. »

NBC has tweaked the title of its upcoming drama Odyssey less than a month before its premiere, renaming the show American Odyssey.
Though the network declined to comment on what spurred the name change, sources close to the production say the new title better reflects the arduous journey of protagonist Odelle (Anna Friel), an American soldier beset by enemies on all sides as she attempts to return to her friends and family in New York.
Of course, the more cynical answer is that NBC execs weren’t living under a rock in January, when American Sniper stormed the box office and racked up Oscar nominations. Renaming the show American Odyssey may make the series more palatable to the same right-leaning audiences that sent Sniper soaring.
The transformation in NBC’s advertising campaign, tied in with the name-change, is quite startling. Whereas Friel’s protagonist was before on her knees, with her hands bound, »

Joel Kinnaman When AlloCine caught up with Run All Night and The Killing star Joel Kinnaman, they asked the actor whether or not those reports about him being in Suicide Squad are accurate. He wasn't willing to reveal anything specific, but did tell that site: "All I can say is that I will be in the movie, and it's going to be amazing." So, we officially have our Rick Flagg then! Joel Edgerton (Warrior) and Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead) were also being considered, but Kinnaman beat them to it. The rest of the Suicide Squad cast includes Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevigne and likely Viola Davis and Jesse Eisenberg too. The movie will be released on August 5th next year. »

When Pastor Leon (Carl Lumbly, “Alias”) says he believes in everlasting life and references the Biblical story of Lazarus to support his argument, Helen’s disillusionment grows. “The finality is for a reason, Pastor, don’t you think?” Helen asks. “To just go on and on, that would be excruciating. How do you organize life with no death to define it? »
