Early Infinity War Reactions Praise Ambitious First 30 Minutes

Early Infinity War Reactions Praise Ambitious First 30 Minutes
First thing's first: There are no real Spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War ahead, but if you would like to go in blind, stop reading now. Now that we've gotten that out of the way, some lucky people in the U.K. were able to watch around 25 minutes of footage from Infinity War and all of the early reactions have been extremely positive. The miniature reviews of the movie do it a great service, but they don't give much away, except for one key note.

Joe.Ie out of Ireland released their review of the Infinity War footage and proclaimed it to be funny, epic, and noted that the villains look "spectacular." The review also goes on to say that fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are, "in for a treat." This reaction falls in line with what people were saying about the Infinity War footage that made its debut at

Zoo Review: Season 2 Is Unabashedly Crazy Like a (Feral, CGI'd) Fox

Zoo Review: Season 2 Is Unabashedly Crazy Like a (Feral, CGI'd) Fox
If Tuesday’s two-hour premiere was any indication, CBS’ Zoo is going all in with Season 2.

Whereas Season 1 of the James Patterson adaptation took things a bit seriously as it explored the mystery of a manmade genetic mutation within the entire animal kingdom that turned our fine feathered and furry friends against us, Season 2 — or at least the effects-laden premiere, which for all I know blew the entire budget — is going full-tilt bananas (no pun intended, monkeys). We’ve got multi-animal assaults, a luxury jet that would make S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Zephyr jealous, new characters and

Star Wars, sad Affleck and the gathering pace of pop culture

Are we too quick to consume movies and TV before moving onto the next big thing? Ryan looks at the gathering pace of pop culture...

On the 26th March, Yahoo UK’s Tom Butler sat down with Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill for a brief filmed interview about Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. Both Hollywood stars wore jumpers. Cavill looked relaxed and chipper. Affleck, on the other hand, wore the heavy-lidded look of someone suffering from jet lag.

It was that wan expression, as the pair were asked about the grim critical reaction to Batman V Superman, which saw the clip shared all over the world. As Cavill responded to the question (“What really matters is what the audience thinks...”), Affleck looked at the floor, unblinking. He appeared to nod gently as Cavill spoke eagerly, although it’s equally possible that he was just comforting himself by rocking backwards and forwards.

Ben Affleck seemingly has existential crisis when asked about 'BvS' criticism

Ben Affleck seemingly has existential crisis when asked about 'BvS' criticism
Batman v Superman is getting pummeled by movie critics. NPR, as just one example among so many, called the superhero blockbuster “a ponderous, smothering, over-pixelated zeppelin crash of a movie.” It appears that all the criticism is getting to Batman himself, Ben Affleck. In an interview with Tom Butler from Yahoo Movies, Affleck and his co-star Henry Cavill were asked about the negative reviews (or as Butler politely calls it, “a mixed response.”) That’s when someone from the YouTube channel Sabconth decided to have some fun at the Dark Knight’s expense. As you’ll see in the video below, Affleck seemingly zones out as Cavill answers the question. He ultimately rejoins the interview just long enough to offer a terse response. And it’s all accompanied by the most appropriate of Simon & Garfunkel songs. Here’s the video…

The Flash Casts Truth Be Told’s Tone Bell as Iris’ New Boss

Iris West will soon be getting a new boss in Season 2 of The Flash, and the CW superhero series has found the man for the job. As first reported by Variety, Tone Bell (NBC’s Truth Be Told) has been cast as Scott Evans, “the brash new editor at Central City Picture News. Devoted to hard journalism, Evans will push Iris (Candice Patton) and all his reporters to dig deeper into their stories and report the truth about what’s really happening in Central City.” It hasn’t yet been announced when Bell will make his debut on The Flash, but he will appear in multiple episodes in the back half of Season 2. His character takes over as editor at Central Picture News after Iris’ last boss, Eric Larkin (played by Tom Butler), was killed by the villainous Dr. Light (played by Malese Jow) in this season’s fifth episode,

Comedian Tone Bell Joins The Cast Of The Flash Season 2

It’s not safe being a journalist in Central City. In fact, it may be even more perilous than being a politician in Star City. Regardless, season two of The Flash has now cast comedian Tone Bell for a multi-episode arc when The CW series returns in 2016. He won’t be a character from the comic books though; instead, he’s taking on the role of Iris West’s boss.

Bell is playing Scott Evans, the brash new editor at Central City Picture News. Devoted to hard journalism, Evans will push Iris (Candice Patton) and all his reporters to dig deeper into their stories and report the truth about what’s really happening in Central City. His predecessor at the paper, Eric Larkin (Tom Butler), was recently killed in a confrontation with Earth-2 villain Dr. Light (Malese Jow).

‘The Flash’ Taps Comedian Tone Bell as Iris’ New Boss
Journalism is a dangerous profession in the world of “The Flash” (much like being a politician on “Arrow”), but that won’t stop another plucky member of the press from entering the fray in Season 2.

Variety can exclusively reveal that comedian Tone Bell will join “The Flash” for a multi-episode arc in the back half of the superhero show’s sophomore season. He’ll play Scott Evans, the brash new editor at Central City Picture News. Devoted to hard journalism, Evans will push Iris (Candice Patton) and all his reporters to dig deeper into their stories and report the truth about what’s really happening in Central City. His predecessor at the paper, Eric Larkin (Tom Butler), was recently killed in a confrontation with Earth-2 villain Dr. Light (Malese Jow).

Gorilla Grodd heading to The Flash says showrunner

It has been teased for sometime (and was even hinted at in a previous episode), but it looks to be confirmed now that Gorilla Grodd is heading to The Flash according to showrunner Andrew Kreisberg.

Kreisberg tweeted, “”@armenvfx just showed us a little Grodd VFX in honor of @geoffjohns birthday and it blew our puny human minds!”

@armenvfx just showed us a little Grodd VFX in honor of @geoffjohns birthday and it blew our puny human minds! #groddlives #TheFlash

Andrew Kreisberg (@AJKreisberg) January 25, 2015

Gorilla Grodd first appeared in The Flash in 1959 and was created by writer John Broome and artist Carmine Infantino. He has the power of mind control and can also project telekinetic force beams, telekinetically transmute matter, and transfer his consciousness into other bodies.

The Flash returned from its mid-season break last week. Check out the synopsis and promo below:
