Running with Friends – (Freemium)
Zynga's mashed up the endless runner genre with their signature brand of social connectedness to create Running with Friends, a virtual runnings of the bulls that you can take on either alone or alongside your buddies.
Since the launch of Smallville Season 11 at DC Comics, writer Bryan Q. Miller has slowly started to form the foundation of that universe's Justice League, building on what the show began with characters like Kid Flash, Green Arrow, Aquaman, Martian Manhunter, and Cyborg, not to mention the Legion of Super-heroes and the Justice Society.
In the comic, we recently saw heavy hitters like Batman and Flash make appearances. Finally, as of July's digital-first Chapter 55, the last missing piece of the larger puzzle makes her presence known: Wonder Woman is coming to Smallville.
Death is a common and arguably rational fear. The idea of no longer living, and the impact that'll have on loved ones, can simply be too much to bear. Yet multiplying that premise by a few billion lives – and adding with it all of the social structures and systems that define our everyday existence – tends to generate an amazingly ripe and exciting scenario for video games.
Why is it that we love the apocalypse?
Post-apocalyptic settings are so varied in portrayal and cause in modern video games, and the vibrant, cartoonish world that generates around your hero in Bastion hardly resembles the more realistic, retro-future setting of Fallout 3. Likewise, the reasons behind such scenarios can vary significantly, including human causes (intentional or otherwise) or the biblical end of days – as in Darksiders. Even titles like Resistance: Fall of Man and The Walking Dead play with apocalyptic themes, despite the fact that both are best classified as alien or zombie games, respectively.
Is teenage actress Saoirse Ronan (Hanna, The Host) being used as the model for Scarlet Witch in Marvel's The Avengers 2?
That's what SuperheroHype claims: "Although Joss
is still writing and probably not ready to send anything out to actors, for the two roles, they're generally looking for actors in their 20s and we've heard word that the 'prototype' for their Scarlet Witch is none other than Irish actress Saoirse Ronan. Except something to note is that they're going 'British' for the role rather than trying to have actors playing Eastern Europeans."
When you're struggling like NBC is, apparently you try to capitalize on any success you have. Such is the case with Chicago Fire, a rare triumph for NBC this past year, as it built a strong -- if not huge -- audience on Wednesday nights. That being the case, NBC is doubling down on the show, ordering a spinoff, Chicago PD, for the next TV season.
Chicago Fire and now Chicago PD come from Dick Wolf, who knows a thing or two about NBC franchises, having produced the huge Law & Order franchise for them through the years, with SVU still on the air.
Burn Notice is coming to an end. THR broke the news, revealing the show's upcoming Season 7 will be the final season for the show.
“Burn Notice has had an incredible run over the last six years, and we could not be more proud of the extraordinary talent both in front of and behind the cameras who have collectively made this show into one of the most popular and lauded shows on TV today,” said Chris McCumber, USA Network co-president.
“From day one, Burn Notice's characters, storylines and mythology have consistently captivated a massive audience, and this final season will raise the stakes even higher, leading up to a spectacular series finale,” added Jeff Wachtel, USA Network co-president.
On the heels of picking up several new series yesterday, including J.J. Abrams and Alfonso Cauron's Believe, NBC continues to pick up new shows for the next TV season. Per THR, the latest additions are Ironside and Undateable.
Starring Blair Underwood, Ironside is a remake of the classic series starring Raymond Burr, with Blair Underwood starring as a detective adjusting to life in a wheelchair, following a shooting, who leads his own team of investigators.
It's the question schoolyard arguments are made of. Who's stronger -- He-Man or Superman? What happens when the Man of Steel meets the Most Powerful Man in the Universe? Well, it's no longer a question to be settled in the realm of fan-fiction. Now that they have the Masters of the Universe license, DC will be settling the matter once and for all.
Today the publisher announced a new crossover mini-series called DC Universe vs. Masters of the Universe. As the title suggests, the book will pit the Justice League against He-Man and his allies. Specifically, the New 52 version of the League against the revamped versions of the He-Man crew currently seen in DC's Masters of the Universe ongoing comic. According to DC, the plot involves Skeletor fleeing to Earth following his last defeat at He-Man's hands. The Masters of the Universe follow closely on his heels, resulting in a clash with the Justice League.
