New CW DC Crossover Trailer For Heros Vs. Aliens

They teased us before but they released a trailer which clues us in at least a little more on the 4 night crossover event for the CW Super Hero line up of Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and Legends Of Tomorrow.

While it doesn’t give us a complete rundown of what will be happening we do see some interesting glimpses of what might be new heros and even returning characters in Deathstroke.  Deathstroke people!  Check it out below.

Miz Wins IC Belt On SmackDown! 900th

Last night on the 900th episode of SmackDown! Live The Miz defeated Dolph Ziggler to be come the Intercontinental Champion once again.

I’m happy to see Miz holding the IC belt again, I think Ziggler has run his course in WWE. His latest storyline with the Spirit Squad has fallen flat and I don’t see him getting a major push anytime soon. If he would step away from the E and start having matches on the indies, like a Cody Rhodes my interest in him may return.As for the Miz, he’s been incredible as of late. His back and forth with Bryan Danielson on Talking Smack was good and his in ring work has improved. Hopefully he’ll get a world title soon, the E needs that top heel holding the strap. 

The Channel Zero: No-End House Trailer is Here, And It’s Scary Good

Last night the first season of Syfy’s creepypasta anthology series Channel Zero wrapped up with a haunting, brain-scratcher of an episode that left us hungry for more. Thankfully, we don’t have to wait long to see what the series has in store, as Syfy has dropped a teaser trailer for season two today.

This time around the series will focus around the creepypasta story No-End House. Helmed by director Steven Piet (Uncle John), season two stars John Carroll Lynch (American Horror Story, The Invitation) and Amy Forsyth (The Path, Defiance), who are in for some very spooky shenanigans indeed. For a taste of what’s to come, check out the trailer below.

Booking Doctor Who In 2018

I hope everyone is up to date on a possible shake-up for Doctor Who in 2018… Here’s my thoughts on the matter.

If Matt Smith stayed on for another couple years Doctor Who wouldn’t be where it’s at today, in the dumps. Sure you can blame Steven Moffat for Peter Capaldi’s run as the Doctor because those stories were lacking the warmth that Smith brought to the show.

The lack of merchandise sales, I wouldn’t blame Capaldi’s Doctor for that. As a collector of DW action figures there’s a lot more they can do with the classic series characters and if they start reprinting classic DW DVDs that’s more sales. Because some of those DVDs are just over priced.

Another factor is the Doctor’s companions. I don’t think they need to be younger but just a good actor will do. Sure Jenna Coleman (Clara Oswald) had her moments but they were few and far between.

On a side note, one rumor that’s been floating around is bringing back Matt Smith as the Doctor. I think that’s a great idea, but without Moffat writing I don’t know if Chris Chibnall can bring the same magic like Moffat did. But only time will tell.

WWE: Survivor Series (2016) Predictions

This Sunday is the 2016 Survivor Series and it’s RAW vs SmackDown. But before I get to my predictions, allow me to address all these WWE Network specials or “pay per view” every two weeks. I find having these specials every two weeks a bit overwhelming and it’s too much at times. For example, the only match I was looking forward to with Hell in a Cell was Sasha Banks vs Charlotte. Because I know those two can have a good match and they did. Some matches and Network specials I could care less about, just overwhelming.

Now Survivor Series is part of the big four but it’s feeling like Bragging Rights but I digress… To my predictions…

Goldberg is back and wants to face Brock Lesnar in a one on one match… I’ve seen their match at WrestleMania XX and it was awful but I have a small glimmer of hope that this match will be good. Hopefully Goldberg can get the ring rust off because that lock up he had with Rusev looked bad. In the match I can see Lesnar bring Goldberg to Suplex City. But if this match is just a one off for Goldberg, I can see Lesnar winning the match.

In an five on five elimination Survivor Series tag team match with Team RAW (Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho, Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, and Seth Rollins) vs. Team SmackDown (AJ Styles, Dean Ambrose, Bray Wyatt, Randy Orton and Shane McMahon) (with Luke Harper and James Ellsworth)… This match is stacked and I hope it goes on last. I see Team SmackDown winning this match because SD needs a victory over RAW to keep their momentum going so they won’t be seen as the “B Show”.

Sami Zayn in WWE has done well for himself but he needs that big win. Sure he’s gotten some over Kevin Owens, but it’s time for Zayn to carry a belt and I see him defeating Dolph Ziggler to become the new IC Champion.

I know one thing, the E has this Network special stacked with Survivor Series type matches… So let me give you all a quick run down, if you will. The winners are!

Team SmackDown – Nikki Bella, Becky Lynch, Alexa Bliss, Carmella, and Naomi with Natalya.

Team Raw – The New Day, Sheamus and Cesaro, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson, Enzo Amore and Big Cass and The Primo and Epico.

Kalisto defeats The Brian Kendrick for the Cruiserweight Championship, to bring the Cruiserweight division to SmackDown.

There you have it, my predictions! But who do you want to see win at Survivor Series? Comment below. 

Dave Chappelle Becomes Neegan On SNL

If you were a giant fan of Chappelle’s Show like I was back when it was on then when you heard Dave Chappelle was going to be hosting SNL you had to be excited.  What would we see?  Any classic Chappelle’s Show characters?  Would he be taking on any current trends in America like he did back on Comedy Central?  Well what we got was Chappelle stepping out of an RV as Neegan from the Walking Dead and staring at a line up of his classic characters.  What followed was a perfect short for us missing the old days.  Thanks for bringing them back Dave.  Check it out below.

Ash vs. Evil Dead – 2×07 “Delusion”

After last week’s surprise cameo and non-stop action, we take a second to catch our breath and relax. For a second.

Is Ash losing his mind? Was this whole thing just a bad dream? Is he truly insane and imaging it all after killing his friends in the cabin that fateful night? I guess the only ones that know the truth are Ash and his puppet.

While Ash vs. Evil Dead circles across this internet are calling this a boring filler episode, they’re only 1/2 right. This set up Ba’al as a tough mofo and featured Lucy Lawless in a nurse’s outfit. I mean, how bad could that be?

Major Shake-Up For Doctor Who In 2018

BBC bosses want Doctor Who to feel like “a brand new show” under incoming boss Chris Chibnall… so we can expect a whole new line-up in 2018.

Insiders say the Broadchurch writer will have a “clean slate” to start afresh for his first series – rather bad news for actress Pearl Mackie, who plays new assistant Bill in Steven Moffat’s last run, currently filming for next year.

Pearl, 29, yet to be seen by viewers, is said to have been signed on a one-year contract and is expected to depart with Peter Capaldi, 58, and Moffat after 2017’s Christmas special.

The replacement Time Lord is likely to be played by a younger actor in a bid to help boost the flagging sales of dolls, books, DVDs and toys.

Our source says: “BBC management wants a return to the format from the David Tennant era, when you had a dashing male lead and young female companion.

“Merchandising has dropped off sharply in recent years and there is a strong desire to boost the show’s popularity among kids.”

One way to do that, of course, is by returning to its traditional tea-time slot, rather than the post-Strictly position it languished in last year.

Next year’s show is expected to air in spring rather than autumn, to avoid the Saturday clash with Strictly.

Joey Styles – Issues Open Letter After Being Fired From Evolve

Renowned commentator Joey Styles was fired from EVOLVE over the weekend … and now he’s issued an open letter explaining why he made such a tasteless joke during the event.

In the letter — sent to PW Insider this morning — Styles says, “Friday night, I panicked on camera during the live broadcast of Evolve 72 on FloSlam when I realized that heel manager, Stokely Hathaway and I would be doing our promo at ringside and not in the ring with ring announcer, Joanna Rose as I had anticipated.”

Joey explains that he had originally planned to include Rose in his promo and, having to come up with something different on the spot, became flustered and made a political joke — something he admits that Gabe Sapolsky specifically instructed him not to do.

Styles continues, saying that as a veteran, he should have walked through the segment beforehand and that Sapolsky was justifiably furious. The announcer claims that he apologized to Sapolsky after the show, and told him to fire him publicly, which he did.

Styles also mentions that he apologized to Rose, FloSlam representative Jeremy Botter and the wrestlers in the locker room … claiming that none of those parties were upset.

Why the World Doesn’t Need Superman (to have his own show)

After Tyler Hoechlin’s pitch perfect turn as the Man of Steel on Supergirl’s premiere episode, the internet lit up with demands that Supes return to the small screen with a show of his own. At first glance, it feels right; Hoechlin, as well as the writing team on Supergirl, did such a great job at bringing some levity back to the big, blue boy scout, that naturally, you want more. He took turns doing the day saving with Supergirl, he thanked random DEO agents for their service, and Rao save us, he actually smiled! Refreshing isn’t strong enough of a word to explain the feeling seeing Superman, the REAL Superman, back in action. (Remember when he told that bank robber, “If the bullets didn’t work, right? Why the punching?”? So great.) We get it. We really do.

But let’s not rush into this. Continue reading Why the World Doesn’t Need Superman (to have his own show)

CW Teases The First Arrowverse 4 Show Crossover

Ever since Supergirl moved over to the CW we’ve been waiting.  When does she get to crossover with everyone else?  Last year it was established that Supergirl takes place on a seperate Earth than the others.  With it being on CBS it seemed like a good idea so that it would help keep the number of crossovers to a minimum since cross network crossovers are a bundle of red tape.  Now that she is flying on the CW it was only a matter of time before the barriers between the Earths had to be broken and she brought into the fold.  This event seems to be called Heroes vs. Aliens so what can we expect to see?  The teaser below is just that, a teaser.  Can’t wait to see what they got up their sleeve.

Kevin Smith has proof that a girl can fly.

On his last day of his directing gig on the CW’s Supergirl, Kevin Smith decided to show fans a peek behind the magic veil of television production. In the 9 1/2 minute video that he posted to his Facebook, Smith attempts to keep composure and not geek out (spoiler alert: it doesn’t work out well) as he shows us how it “takes a village” to get a Supergirl in the air.

It’s funny to watch Smith fanboy out at the process. It’s also cool to see everything that goes into getting those moments of action. As Smith says, it really is something that we as viewers take for granted because we only see the end result.

Give it a look below.


Kevin Smith directs the 11th episode of Supergirl entitled “Supergirl Lives” (assuredly more than just a coincidental reference to his attachment to the ill-fated Superman Lives) which airs later this season on Mondays at 8/7 Central on the CW. 

WWE: Eric Bischoff – Sports Entertainment’s Most Controversial Figure

WWE finally updated their Beyond the Ring section on the WWE Network. There you will find a lot of their home video releases… in other words, home video release I’m not willing to buy.

Starting off the documentary with the intro I got a bad feeling because a lot of the sound bites and footage came from The Monday Night War: WWE Raw vs. WCW Nitro (2004) DVD, so I thought this was going to be a rehash but was I wrong. All new interviews with Eric Bischoff and I was surprised seeing Sonny Onoo being interviewed. But here’s the break down… Majority of the stories from Bischoff running WCW have been told before but there is a couple things that caught my eye. Like Bischoff blaming himself for not bringing up talent and elevate them to the main event level. He was mostly talking about cruiser weights like Jericho, Kidman, Guerrero, Malenko etc. Another point Bischoff made was about the PPV revenue because at the end of the day that money went to Turner Broadcasting and Time Warner and not to WCW.

Overall… I find this documentary okay, because I heard a lot these stories about Bischoff, WCW, and Monday Night War before. A lot of rehashing but it does give you a good history of 90’s wrestling and how WCW beat WWE for like 84 weeks in a row. Just watch it on the WWE Network. 

Emmalina Coming To RAW

For the past three weeks I been seeing vignettes on RAW for Emmalina. Basically, the E is just repackaging Emma with a new gimmick and from the vignettes I’m seeing I have no idea what her gimmick is going to be. But I hope she returns as a heel, because her heel run before she got hurt was great. Her look was good too with black gloves, mirror sunglasses and a remixed themed. Why fix something that isn’t broken? I’m looking forward to her return.

So what do you think, is Emmalina returning with a heel her gimmick or back to babyface?

Young Justice Season 3 Announced

I’m a fan of cartoons.  Throw in some super heroes and I’m a HUGE fan of cartoons.  One I was a fan of was the DC cartoon Young Justice.  It was fun seeing all the side kicks get their turn in the spotlight and it had a rather unconventional season structure where at the end of season 1 into season 2 it jumped ahead a few months and completely changed the dynamic of the team without any explination so that when the story  unfolded for the season you got to see what these changes were all about.  We were sad when it was announced that it was canceled after Season 2.

There was some lobbying by fans for Netflix to pick it up but it remained pretty silent until today.  There’s no word on where it’s going to be shown but it looks like Season 3 is moving forward in production so we at least will see something.  Were you a fan of the show?

Ash vs. Evil Dead 2×06 “Trapped Inside”

Oh baby, this review will contain spoilers.

I nerded out hardcore at Ash vs. Evil Dead episode 6. It had been spoiled for me that Cheryl would be making her return, so unfortunately I missed the fun of the big reveal. What I did not miss, however, was the amazing attention to detail paid by the amazing AvED writers.

First off, check above for the make up. They paid tribute to the original movie with the forehead bandage and cheek scratches, although maybe goring them out a little bit. After all, 35 years have passed so maybe they’re infected? She should try some antibiotics.

Another nice touch was the art desk in Cheryl’s room. Who could forget Cheryl’s clock masterpiece before the Book of the Dead took over her drawing hand to ruin it?

And I think “I’m gonna make like a tree and fuck you” may be the best quote from anything Evil Dead related. Movies and series combined.

Generally speaking though, I think this episode really encompassed the general feeling and tone I’ve loved from the Evil Dead movie series and continued into the TV series. Throwbacks and references to the original, bizarre and sometimes hacked together continuity, fun and silliness combined with “true” horror.

Cheryl was the original deadite and I, for one, was thrilled to see that same deadite reprise her role. Will we see more from other lost souls from the movie series? I’d love to see Scotty or the original Linda. How about Annie or Bobby Joe? Those may not have the same impact as Ash’s sister, but we fans would love to see them.

I was a bit worried that the TV series would not live up to the original movie series I’ve loved so much, but these last few episodes have put all those remaining worries to rest.

Lego Batman Needs a Friend in Trailer #4

Somewhere almost dead center between the camp of the neon Schumacher Bat and the angry, ultra-violent Snyder Bat, the Lego Batman sits quietly in wait…trying to get his BatTV to work.
Today, Warner Bros dropped trailer #4 for the solo Lego Batman movie out next year. After his scene-stealing cameo in 2014’s Lego movie, the Bat is back and he’s flying solo. He’s saving the day and earning the adulation of millions of fans, but still there seems to be something missing in his life. At the insistence of Alfred, Batman reluctantly learns to take responsibility of the young boy he’s adopted, and along the way, builds a team of heroes to help him on his life’s mission.
The Lego Batman movie hits theaters in February 2017 and features the voice talents of Will Arnett, Ralph Fiennes, Rosario Dawson, Zach Galifianakis and Michael Cera.
