So everyone loves the Flash; he’s the most relaxed, funny, and generally likable superhero in the DC Comic universe. It’s awesome that he will finally be represented on screen in the modern era, and holds even more promise because of how good Arrow has been so far for its first two seasons.
I’m not totally sold on Gustin yet, only because I haven’t seen him in anything, but from the little bit we saw in Arrow, he seemed fine.
I definitely love this picture though, the head part of the suit looks awesome and about as good as I could have imagined it. Hopefully a full body picture is released soon and the entire costume can be revealed!
What do you think?
Right now True Detective is the hottest show on television and has really been blowing myself and countless others away with it’s amazing first season so far.
There are only two episodes left, and sadly, it means only two episode left of McConaughey and Harrelson as one of the best duos on T.V. The biggest question on my mind, and soon everyone’s, is who will follow up these two and be the focus of season two?
In an article found here, creator Nic Pizzolatto responds to a tweet about female characters, leaving the fan with the open-ended, “Next season…” Obviously this is no guarantee, but at least cool to know that the writers are open to having any types of detectives. Pizzolatto has done such an amazing job with the writing so far in this first season, so I’m sure that whoever signs on for season two will have a great character written for them.
True Detective has been everything I expected and so much more. There are still two episodes left in this season that I am massively anticipating (as I’m sure you all are), but I can’t help but think a little bit about what will come next from this show.
Either way, I’m excited to hear ideas for season two and will report more as soon as they come in!

Between getting my school work done, hitting up the art museum, and then watching the Super Bowl, I wasn’t really on technology that much yesterday, so I apologize for the tardiness of this post. Sadly, I discovered from a friend that Philip Seymour Hoffman had passed away at 46 from a heroin overdose in his apartment. I, like most, was shocked and dumbfounded at the news of this actor I loved falling victim to such a harmful drug.
It’s sad to see someone who was so great in The Master, Pirate Radio, Doubt, Capote, and so many more types of film disappear in an instant. Personally, Pirate Radio is one of my favorite films and PSH kills it as The Count, countin’ down from 10… yet, he was also able to give us award worthy performances in movies like Doubt or Capote.
It’s sad to lose such a talented actor.
Empire magazine celebrated its 25th anniversary by releasing 25 X-Men: Days of Future Past character covers yesterday. You can check them out here on slashfilm.com. I still have to read the Days of Future Past comic (I know, I know…) but am really excited for the film. I think most of the costumes look good; future Wolverine with that body armor looks sweet, Fassbender looks awesome, even the sentinels look mean. Like I said, these covers are really solid looking.
The one problem I have. The single cover that I hate! Although it could possibly be considered the most important of them all!
I guess he kinda looks futuristic? Right? With all the shiny silver and the nifty goggles and gadgets? I know it’s tough to do the silver hair thing and make it look good but I just don’t like the costume they’ve set him up in. Obviously, this doesn’t relate to Evan Peters’ acting capabilities, so he could still be great in the role. The costume just feels fake and reminds me of this.
I guess we’ll just have to wait and see… X-Men: Days of Future Past looks sweet and pretty much all of the covers have me excited to see both X-Men movie cast combine.
Holy smokes this trailer really made The Amazing Spider-Man 2 become one of the top movies I’m looking forward to. So many things were in this trailer! You have Peter talk about more people out to get him and how they are more powerful, so we get three villains in this one. Rhino, Electro, and the Goblin!! I think that the Goblin will come into play towards the end and only serve one evil purpose.
Then in the background at OsCorp there was clearly the Doc Ock arms and Vulture wings!! That is huge and very exciting as well!
This movie looks awesome after this first trailer so check it out!
If you enjoy reading really creative stories and have some spare time, I encourage you to check out Monsters & Mustaches
There are currently four stories available to read, but they are posted as chapters, which makes it easy for everyone to go at their own pace or find an appropriate stopping point rather than keeping an open internet tab of long text so you don’t lose your spot. The chapters are nice lengths and the stories are unique and usually [but not always] come with some pictures that are drawn by the author.
I really love the concept though and it’s nice to read some freshly creative stories. Another reason these stories are awesome is because they are well thought out and all exist in the same universe, sometimes causing characters to pop up in different places. This just adds more depth and flowing continuity to the M&M story-verse and makes it fun to keep reading.
If you’re in the mood for some fun short stories, definitely check these out!
