Arrow: Ollie’s Got New Duds For Season Four

arrow-season4-suit

 

We heard recently that in the upcoming season of Arrow, even after his ride into the sunset, Ollie would be facing a new foe in Damien Darhk.  Now, in this latest from Entertainment Weekly, it looks like Ollie will be getting a new suit, too — one that’s strapped in leather armor and looks much more defensive than the old jacket (despite the exposed…and impressive…biceps).

We’ve speculated on Arrow Season Four before (check out Mike’s piece on a potential reboot here) but now that more concrete information is coming out, it’s clear that this season will mark a turning point for Oliver Queen.  Are you excited for what Arrow has in store?  Let us know your thoughts in the comments!

Suicide Squad Trailer is Slow and Sad and Has the Joker

Screen shot 2015-07-13 at 1.47.55 PM

The moment you’re all looking for – hearing Jared Leto’s laugh as the Joker for the first time, comes at the very end of this trailer. The rest is an introduction to the concept of the Squad, and follows the very slow, very sad style of the DC Cinematic Universe we’ve come to expect. Which is unfortunate, because it looks like the movie itself is trying to be a fun romp, not a depressing character study. Lots of long takes of shots with little, tiny inserted attempts at humor abound here. What do you think? Is this the direction you wanted from the Squad? Continue reading

Comic-con Proposal is the Sweetest Thing You’ll See This Year

When Makeup Artist Barry Bishop and Visual FX Artist Billy Brooks were brought on stage for the Con Man panel at SDCC this year, people probably thought it was odd. Usually, the panels are reserved for directors, producers, and the cast – the crew behind the magic don’t normally get the spotlight. Maybe Alan Tudyk was being really nice? Well, it turns out, he had an ulterior motive. You see, now that their wedding would be legal in their home states in the “deep south,” Billy had decided it was time to ask his man to tie the knot, in our absolute favorite thing from Comic-con this year. Seriously, even the Batman v Superman trailer can’t top this. Gentlebeings, prepare your tear ducts: Continue reading

SDCC Day One Wrap Up – Rose Marie Fox

IMG_6627

Woke up late and then went immediately to the Game of Thrones experience across the street from the Omni hotel. I arrived around 10:45, not knowing it would be a full 4+ hours until I actually got into the exhibit proper. The exhibit is very fun, but less impressive at first glance due to the green screens and simple decoration at the entrance. Luckily the folks I was near to in line were friendly and I even handed out a few business cards – truly I could not have done the wait without my new friends and line buddies. Continue reading

Comic-Con Memories Past: The Best 10

AoGatSDCC

 

With San Diego Comic-Con aka “SDCC” less than 48 hours from kick off I’ve been thinking non-stop about what I’m going to see, where I’m going to go and who I might meet. If past years are any indication it’ll be a whirlwind trip full of surprises, exhaustion, exhilaration with some minor disappointments. Personally, Comic-Con is the one week I look forward to every year. It is like my Birthday, Christmas & Halloween all wrapped into one happy industry approved package.

When I tell non-convention folks about my passion, the response is usually one of confusion or envy. Here I will elaborate on my favorite Comic-Con memories – the moments that got me to this place in hopes of illustrating why I am so married to this convention. If you are envious of my pass, I am sorry. Getting a ticket is really, really hard these days and I am stupidly lucky to be attending (I know, please don’t hold it against me).

My 10 Favorite Comic-Con Memories:
