Hollywood Vampires Conjure Rock Monsters on New Song ‘The Boogieman Surprise’
Rock and roll supergroup the Hollywood Vampires unveiled a menacing new cut, “The Boogieman Surprise,” set to appear on their upcoming album, Rise, out June 21st via earMUSIC.

“The Boogieman Surprise” is a churning cut that finds Johnny Depp and Joe Perry trading rugged guitar riffs and crackling licks on top of a heavy drums stomp. Frontman Alice Cooper delivers a vintage vocal performance, growling, “Finalize, paralyze, specialize, scandalize/You’re gonna fake it/You ain’t ready for the boogieman surprise/You ain’t ready for the boogieman.”

The Russos Weren’t Responsible For Avengers: Endgame’s Post-Credits Tease

Avengers: Endgame is the culmination of a cinematic experiment that no one was really sure about back when it started in 2008. 22 films later, however, the series is a Hollywood juggernaut that shows no signs of slowing. But while there is still clearly a future for Marvel’s Heroes on the big screen, it won’t be like anything audiences have experienced thus far.

Even so, that didn’t stop the powers that be from dropping a little tease. While the franchise capper didn’t have any extra scenes to set up forthcoming movies, for those who remained in their seats, there was a stinger of sorts that focused on the early years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

As the last of the credits begin crawl up the screen, an ominous sound, like a hammer pounding on an anvil, can be heard. This is clearly meant as a callback to the

Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine (‘The Chi’) on how Ronnie ends up ‘in a deeper hole of trouble’ despite good intentions [Exclusive Video Interview]
Since season one of “The Chi” ended with Ronnie (Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine) confessing to murder, Mwine worried “that might be the end of me. You might not see this character again.” Luckily for the actor, the writers “gave me so much to do this year. It’s really been a blessing.” Watch our exclusive video interview with Mwine above.

In the first season of this Lena Waithe-created series for Showtime about life on the South Side of Chicago, Ronnie desperately tried to prove his love to Tracy (Tai Davis). When Tracy’s son was murdered he killed Coogie (Jahking Guillory), the young man he suspected committed the crime. But it turned out he went after the wrong guy, and Coogie’s older brother, Brandon (Jason Mitchell), vowed to bring his murderer to justice.

Arrow Star Says His Character Should’ve Killed Off Felicity

If you’re an “Olicity” shipper, then I imagine you’re going to be savoring the next four episodes of Arrow for all they’re worth. The reason I’m saying that is because, as those who’ve kept up with news pertaining to the series are aware, Emily Bett Rickards will soon be exiting the show, and has opted to not stick around for the eighth and final season.

At the time of this writing, it remains unknown exactly how Felicity Smoak will be written off, but we’ve been given hints as to how it may happen. Personally, I think a string of events yet to unfold will lead “Overwatch” to arrive at the decision to leave Star City behind and raise her baby in seclusion.

Someone who’d beg to differ though is that of Kirk Acevedo, who thinks his character of Ricardo Diaz should’ve put the kibosh on Felicity.

‘Game of Thrones’: How HBO Made the Cult Fantasy Novels a Mainstream Obsession

  • Indiewire
Whether you’re on a first date or launching a new TV show, the safest possible strategy is this: Keep your crazy on the down-low.

As HBO’s “Game of Thrones” comes to an end, it’s worth looking back at the magic trick it pulled off from the outset: never letting its genre fiction roots — Dragons! Murderous smoke babies! Faceless assassins with multiple faces! — outshine its compelling, and frequently heartbreaking, dedication to character development.

In fairness, viewers can’t say they didn’t know from the beginning that some weird stuff was going to happen on this show. The opening sequence of the pilot episode, “Winter Is Coming,” features three men of the Night’s Watch scouting beyond the Wall that protects Westeros from the terrors of the North, two of whom are killed by strange undead creatures (soon to be well known as the White Walkers).

Fork yeah! Kristen Bell could finally win Emmy in daytime after primetime snubs for ‘Veronica Mars’ and ‘The Good Place’
The Daytime Emmys could turn out to be the real good place for Kristen Bell, who is nominated for Best Short Format Daytime Program for “Momsplaining,” the web series she hosts and produces on Ellen DeGeneres‘s digital network. But what’s amazing isn’t that she could win an Emmy, but that this is the first time she has ever even been nominated, in daytime or in primetime. What the fork, TV academy?

Bell appeared in a couple of episodes of the Emmy-winning series “Deadwood” in 2004, but her big breakthrough was in the title role as a high school private eye on “Veronica Mars.” She played that role for three years, resulting in a Television Critics Association nomination — not to mention two wins for Best Drama Actress at the Gold Derby TV Awards. But that show aired for its first two seasons on Upn and then for its last season on the CW,

‘American Gods’: Neil Gaiman Promises that, Despite Changes, Season 2 Feels Like Season 1
American Gods” Season 2 is coming soon to Starz, and while rumors of chaos behind the scenes have made news over the past year, executive producer Neil Gaiman says that the returning show “still looks and feels like ‘American Gods.'”

Bryan Fuller and Michael Green, the original showrunners of the Starz drama based on Gaiman’s book, left the series after completing Season 1 and writing scripts for a second season; they were succeeded by “Heroes” executive producer Jesse Alexander, who reportedly left the series at the end of Season 2.

At the Television Critics Association press tour, Gaiman — who was the only executive producer present for the panel — pointed to the continued work of second unit director Chris Byrne as one reason why the show “feels like the same show that we had in Season 1.” Also a factor was, in Gaiman’s words, the “amazing actors” who continued with the series,
