The Flash

If you caught The Flash last week, you probably stuck around and caught the previews. If you had not you missed it! You missed the massive crossover event with Arrow and what’s coming up for The Flash.

Particularly Grodd. And last night (week) we learned who the Reverse Flash was.


OK, so it wasn’t who we thought it was. That was a nice little twist up. But to be honest, who it turned out to be playing who we thought it was, was confusing, interesting and not as big of a twist as I thought it could have been.


Check out this epic preview for the rest of the season… (and is Arrow wearing a League of Assassin’s outfit in there?)


The first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie produced by Michael Bay and directed by Jonathan Liebesman really sucked. But this time around, the sequel, there just might be a tiny chance it will get better.

Word on the street that Arrow’s Stephen Amell has landed the role of golf club, hockey stick wielding Casey Jones! Back in the very first movie, Casey was my favorite character of the lot. And I loved the scene where he and Donatello got into an insult match, going alphabetically through the name calling.

“Casey Jones: Not even close, Zip Neck. Professor and Mary Anne. Happily ever after.

Donatello: No way, Atomic Mouth, Gilligan was her main man. They’d be married and have six kids by now.

Casey Jones: Gilligan was a geek, Barfaroni!

Donatello: You’re the geek, Camel Breath!

Casey Jones: Dome head.

Donatello: Elf lips!

[Casey finishes fixing the engine]

Casey Jones: Okay let’s give this a try, funkoid!

Donatello: Here it goes… What are we on?

Casey Jones: Uh, G.

Donatello: Here it goes, gak face!

Casey Jones: I’m ready, hose brain! ”

But I have never seen Amell get really loud. He has a soft-spoken sort of energy. The character in the original film had more umph to him. Hey, we’ll see what they do with it.


The Best Wonder Woman April Fool’s Joke Ever…

The National Air and Space Museum has put Wonder Woman’s invisible up on display. Yep, you read that right. And then they had a window cleaner making sure the cockpit glass was clean! LOL.

The first few seconds are precious… the rest is just bonus…


Hey Robotech Fans…

Variety reported that Sony has bought the rights to the Robotech franchise and it looks like they’re planning a film franchise based on that epic space battle anime opera.

And it will be a live action flick.

But Crap… they say it will have an “Independence Day” meets “Star Wars” vibe.  I hate when a studio pitches other successful movie names to sell their product. That is never a good sign. And so early too. I hope they pull this one out of the bag and deliver. I’ve loved this franchise ever since I was … well, younger.
