'Legends of Tomorrow's'Justice Society of America shaping up nicely with Stargirl & more
The CW's superhero time travel series Legends of Tomorrow promised us new heroes and they're delivering. They've just cast the Justice Society of America's Stargirl. IGN.com reports it's Power Rangers actor Sarah Grey who's grabbed the role of Stargirl, otherwise known as Star-Spangled Kid, otherwise known as Courtney Elizabeth Whitmore. Stargirl was created by DC Entertainment President & Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns and introduced in Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E. #0 back in 1999. Johns created her in honor of his sister who passed away three years earlier and she's mostly retained a youthful, energetic, and hopeful appearance in the comics. Considering how many teenagers they have, Courtney is one of the few DC characters who actually had braces on her teeth at one point. She was, for lack of a better word, normal. While in the DC Comics Bombshells series she has an entirely different origin, in

'Wreck-It Ralph' Special: Five Comic Book Villains Turned Heroes

by Ryan Rigley

Once a villain, always a villain — or at least that's what they say.

However, Disney's newest film, "Wreck-It Ralph," aims to prove that particular saying wrong. Starring John C. Reilly (as Wreck-It Ralph), the film revolves around a down and out video game villain who aims to go against his programming and starts game hopping with the hopes of becoming a hero beloved by all.

These Marvel and DC characters all started off on the wrong side of the law, but are now either paying their dues or functioning as full-blown superheroes.

"A Lobster Tale" we loved.

What is it in life that lets us judge what is right and what is wrong, who is worthy of being alive and who’s just there, with no significant purpose in one’s world? Consider finding something so unique that it could change your entire life. You’ve always dreamed of better; getting out of that place; that hole you call an existence, but you can’t. These are the questions posed by this wonderful indie which, thankfully, has found our domain here at MovieJungle.com. The title throws one off a tad. For the most part, there are no lobsters in this film; it is more the career of one unsuccessful fisherman named Cody (Colm Meaney). Struggling to make his daily catch and support his family, the aged fisherman once again takes out his modest little boat and heads off into the blue. Despite warnings from a close friend,
