The 91st Oscar nominations were announced this morning in a presentation by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. We have the full list of all the most noteworthy people and films up for the coveted Academy Award.
San Diego Comic-Con International is mere days away, and with it the promise of collectible grab bags and star sightings. But this year something else fans have come to expect might be missing: Leaked Trailers.
Director James Gunn, in a response to a fan’s question about upcoming Guardians of The Galaxy 2 via Facebook last week, hinted at the use of new technology to prevent fans armed with cell phones from leaking special previews intended for the diehards in Hall H.
While the entire casts of The Walking Dead are currently kicking it Schrodinger style, fan favorite Norman Reedus is riding into the proverbial sunset.
A fan of motorcycles since his teenage years, Reedus has been given every bike enthusiasts dream job, cruising the country on a classy hog and getting paid to do it.
It may be part of Darth Disney’s plan to take over the world, but Marvel’s ever-expanding movie universe has taken audiences by storm (just not Johnny Storm).
Captain America: Civil War kicked off Phase Three with some impressive numbers the last two weekends, keeping the number one spot and showing that audiences are still symptom-free of what some are calling Superhero-Fatigue.
Obligatory Spoiler Warning
The power of the force is stronger than ever, and the heroes of the Star Wars Saga are on fans minds as they haven’t been in decades. In honor of International Women’s Day, let us turn our thoughts to one of our bravest heroes, the rebel that started it all, Leia Organa (played by Carrie Fisher in the films). While fans well know the fate of her twin brother, her story is only just now being told.
From all corners of the Star Wars extended universe Leia’s back story is being laid out like so many puzzle pieces. Fellow Disney property Marvel Comics released a five-issue comic last summer chronicling Leia’s own adventures just after she doesn’t give Chewie a medal in the closing scene of Star Wars: A New Hope.
The Disney/Lucasfilms plan to keep Star Wars at the forefront of our minds for the foreseeable future is certainly working.
Even the animated series Disney’s Rebels and the slew of books filled with back story secrets aren’t enough to satisfy fans. The next film in the franchise, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, is just under a year away and already the rumors are flying at light speed.

Daredevil‘s gotten rave reviews. Same with Jessica Jones. The upcoming Luke Cage series looks to flex as yet another win for Netflix even though it’s still months away. So why’s Iron Fist having a hard time getting out of the dojo?
Rumors of cancellation have been swirling for months by fans who hadn’t heard a whiff of incense from Netflix and Marvel about the series. There was even talk that a Punisher series would replace it. Finally, Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel Television, addressed the issue:
With X-Men: Apocalypse almost upon us, and Deadpool close behind, we’ve been following the X-news pretty closely. The only other officially announced film in the Fox series so far has been Gambit, starring Channing Tatum and Lea Seydoux. Gambit is a bit of a surprising gambit (yeah, we went there) and interesting choice for a spin-off film, considering the new canon, following the events of Days of Future Past, which rewrote the timeline and pretty much erased Taylor Kitsch’s turn as the character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. So we can certainly get behind bringing the fan favorite character to the big screen.
With that being said, in our eyes there are a number of characters and teams who deserve their shot on the big screen a little bit more than Remy LeBeau. While we have nothing against Gambit, there are already a number of properties that have been partially set up in the X-Men’s Cinematic Universe, including a number of characters we just want to see more of. Today we are going to take a look at a number of these potential spin-offs that we would love to see, starting with someone we hope to see in another rumored spin-off.
You will know Jessica Jones. Or at least be intrigued enough to watch the new Netflix series which debuts this Friday. The publicity machine over at the streaming channel earlier this month unleashed a barrage of stills of the titular character as well as many of the series’ cast. These include allies and friends like Trish Walker (played by Rachel Taylor), and the villainous Purple Man, who’s slickly portrayed by David Tennant of Doctor Who fame.
