iZombie Season 4: Liv Feeds on Snobby Dowager Brain — 2018 First Look
Chew on this: iZombie brain-eater Liv and Dame Maggie Smith have something in common — or at least they will, when the CW series’ undead heroine chows down on her next meal.

In Season 4’s second episode, Liv feeds on the noggin of a rich, haughty dowager, and as you can see in TVLine’s exclusive first look, she really gets into character as she takes on the widow’s mannerisms and fashion.

But while Dame Maggie Smith’s Dowager Countess on Downton Abbey was feared but respected by her servants, Liv’s food

Superhero movies are more popular than ever in present times, but it is important to note that the entertainment industries have been making superhero movies on a semi-regular basis for decades and decades. For proof, look no further than the Supergirl movie, which came out in 1984.

Superman: The Movie’s Jimmy Olsen has a cameo in Justice League

Having portrayed Superman’s pal Jimmy Olsen in the Christopher Reeve Superman movies and its 1984 spinoff Supergirl (as well as Vanessa Hudgens’ character’s father in the shortlived sitcom Powerless), actor Marc McClure is set for a return to the DC universe this November with a cameo in Justice League.

Thanks to the recent Cyborg featurette for the movie, we’ve now got a glimpse of McClure in his role as a police officer who has an encounter with Ray Fisher’s Victor Stone. Here he is, courtesy of Robin’s Nest on Twitter…

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the

Fun Unexpected Cameo Revealed For Justice League Revealed in Cyborg Featurette

Warner Bros. released a new featurette recently that focuses on Ray Fisher's Cyborg. It features some new footage from the film and offers some additional details on Cyborg. But there's a fun little cameo that was revealed in the video that was completely unexpected. Don't worry, it's not really a spoiler and a lot of people may have never caught it had it not been pointed out to them.

In the photo below you will see actor Marc McClure as a police officer. If that name doesn't ring a bell, he's the actor that played Jimmy Olsen in the original Superman films with Christopher Reeve. He also appeared in the 1984 film Supergirl

It pretty cool to see that he's been included in Justice League, even if it's just for a small bit role.

New Cyborg Footage Reveals Surprise Justice League Cameo

New Cyborg Footage Reveals Surprise Justice League Cameo
Are you in the mood for a little more Justice League footage? Then you're in luck, because we've got you covered. A brand new Justice League featurette has been released, which centers on Cyborg. The video gives us some brand new footage, in addition to detailing his origin story in the Dceu. Considering that he's arguably been the most ignored member of the team (save for Superman) thus far in the marketing, something like this is probably good leading up to the release.

Though DC Comics readers, and fans of Teen Titans, are familiar with Vic Stone, aka Cyborg, broader audiences, who Warner Bros. is relying on to see Justice League, aren't nearly as familiar with the character. So something like this gives a nice, albeit brief, introduction to who he is and how he works within the framework of the Justice League. As this video points out, he's the "big guns" on the team.

Justice League Features A Special Easter Egg Dedicated To Christopher Reeve’s Superman Movies

Say what you will about Zack Snyder, but the man knows how to line the fabric of his superhero tentpoles with Easter eggs and other crowd-pleasing references to DC Comics.

From Parademons to that scorched Omega symbol (read: Darkseid), Batman V Superman was loaded with numerous Easter eggs – some overt; others subtle – and it seems Justice League is no different. In light of this morning’s all-too-brief promo, which was designed to signal the beginning of Wonder Woman and Cyborg week, The Flite Cast has spotted a special cameo from none other than Marc McClure.

If that name rings a bell, it should; McClure originally portrayed Jimmy Olsen in the original four Christopher Reeve Superman movies, not to mention the Supergirl of 1984. He’s since traded his press badge for a role in the local police force, as this screenshot places McClure’s character in Metropolis, where he will seemingly

Destroy All Monsters: In Light of Wonder Woman, It's Time To Reconsider 1984's Supergirl

"Squirt? Squirt." - Peter O'Toole as Zaltar in Supergirl (1984) Wonder Woman continues to dominate the box office both domestically and abroad, adding a disproportionately low second-weekend drop (for this genre, the best since Batman Begins) to its list of achievements. It's weird and sad to keep condescending to the film as the ultimate in superhero movie edge cases - "look, a movie about a woman can make money!" - but media's incessant need to compare like against like leaves few alternatives in the desert-like "female superhero movie" sub-genre. So, I might as well throw my hat into the ring, and point out that most of the commentary around Wonder Woman only seems to have cultural memory going back to the Catwoman/Elektra days, and in...

Avengers: Infinity War & Avengers 4 Filming Separately

Collider is reporting that after much deliberation, Marvel Studios has decided to shoot The Avengers: Infinity War film and Avengers 4 separately. Initially, the plan was to film the two movies at the same time, with the intention of potentially filming scenes for both movies on the same day. The benefits of filming the two movies separately was addressed by Kevin Feige.

“We’re doing them one right after another… It became too complicated to cross-board them like that, and we found ourselves—again, something would always pay the price. We wanted to be able to focus and shoot one movie and then focus and shoot another movie.”

This isn't the first superhero movie with similar filming schedules that changed course to focus on the first film. The movies in question were Superman: The Movie and Superman 2. Produced by Illya and Alexander Salkind, they intended to film the movies simultaneously,

Honorary Oscars to Jackie Chan, Frederick Wiseman, Lynn Stalmaster, and Anne V Coates

The Board of Governors from AMPAS have finally announced their selections for this year's Honorary Oscars. This year they're not giving out the Thalberg (for Producing) or the Hersholt (for Huminatarian efforts) but just the regular ol' Honorary Oscars. If such a thing can be deemed "regular" since they're so hard to come by. Consider that James Ivory still doesn't have one despite being a masterful oft imitated but never duplicated director behind three major Best Picture contenders (and many other beautiful films) and never having won an an Oscar and being 88 years old. Nathaniel wept. Oscar remains remarkably stingy with the gays but at least they've noticed the need for diversity in other ways.

Congratulations to this year's esteemed recipients!

DVD & Blu-rays: Jaws sequels, Chuck Norris

Nick Aldwinckle Sep 2, 2016

Our latest The Bottom Shelf DVD and Blu-ray round-up features Jaws 2, Jaws 3-D, Jaws: The Revenge and Chuck Norris...

With Shark Week arguably America’s most beloved religious festival and the unprecedented worldwide cultural impact of Anthony C. Ferrante’s acclaimed Sharknado trilogy showing no sign of letting up, who could deny the necessity of the Jaws sequels finally getting a Blu-ray release?

The immediate answer is obvious (well, anyone), though this belated look at Jaws 2, Jaws 3-D, Jaws: The Revenge and Jaws 5: The Sharkening was, for this writer at least, a nostalgic journey through a world where morbidly obese fish bear grudges, Michael Caine fights a script far deadlier than any marine predator and where lines such as “Weld that sonuvabitch” are somehow deemed passable.

Generally considered the best of the sequels, perhaps Jaws 2 holds a special place in the heart of the reader who,

DVD Review – The Wicked Lady (1983)

The Wicked Lady, 1983.

Directed by Michael Winner.

Starring Faye Dunaway, Denholm Elliott, Alan Bates, John Gielgud, Glynis Barber, Oliver Tobias, Joan Hickson and Prunella Scales.

Synopsis:

A woman marries into high society after stealing her sister’s fiancé but becomes bored with country life so she turns to highway robbery to get her kicks.

If you caught the Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films documentary from a couple of years back you may remember a sizeable section devoted to 1983’s The Wicked Lady. It may seem odd that a production company like Cannon – mostly known for action, martial arts and horror B-movies such as American Ninja, Invasion U.S.A. and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 – would delve into a period drama remake of a 1945 film but this was no ordinary period piece as The Wicked Lady was adapted and directed by Michael Winner, fresh from his success with

Official character descriptions for Superman prequel series Krypton

Last month it was announced that Syfy had given a pilot order for Krypton, a Superman prequel series from David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight, Man of Steel), which will take place two generations prior to the destruction of the planet and focusses on Kal-El’s grandfather. Thanks to TV Line, we now have official character descriptions for the pilot:

Seg-el | Envisioned here as athletic, quietly confident and in his 20s, comic fans are familiar with an older (and a bit grumpier) Seg from his appearance in the classic Starman No. 51, written by James Robinson with story by Robinson and David S. Goyer, who is executive producer/writer of Krypton. But Seg’s a good guy at any age; in the comics, he and son Jor-El (Kal-El/Superman’s father) helped Starman get away while other Kryptonians wanted to detain – and dissect – the Earthling.

Glenn Hauman: Today’s Gateway Drugs

  • Comicmix
One of the things they’ve been doing during this World Series – and every one, really – is comparing them to series contenders of years past. This year, the references to the ’85 Royals and the ’86 Mets have come fast and furious, and while it’s great to talk about Gary Carter, Darryl Strawberry, and Dwight Gooden again, it’s not like anybody under the age of 30 saw them play in their prime. More to the point, no one is becoming a baseball fan today from watching those guys from back then.

Sadly, to me, I think it’s the same with superheroes.

Nobody is becoming a fan of superheroes today if their first exposures are comics from 30+ years ago. I’m not talking about the characters and concepts, I’m speaking only of the works themselves. There are a lot of young kids who fell in love with Supergirl this week,
