Season 5 of Gotham To Introduce New Batcave

With this being the last season of Gotham, it is pretty much common knowledge where this is going. Bruce is going to finalize his transition into Batman by the end of Season 5, which inevitably means he’s going to be getting all the iconic trappings of the job. This includes the Batcave, which will be getting an all-new look and location this time around (minus the labels on everything I would imagine). The cave beneath Wayne Manor has been seen on more than one occasion through the series. Bruce and Alfred explored it one point earlier on and it was revisited

The Season Two Blues: Netflix Marvel’s Predictable Trend

We were all shocked during the events of the second season of Daredevil, where Matt Murdock’s previously strong ties with Foggy Nelson began unraveling. Not only did their business go bottoms up, but their friendship deteriorated. On top of this, the re-introduction of Elektra back into Matt’s life put a major strain on his ties with Karen Page, to the point of completely breaking. How could friendships that were so strong in the first season be completely ripped apart just a few episodes later? Unfortunately, this is a trend we have now seen in the Netflix Marvel world. While The

Adi Shankar Says Power Rangers Is A Better Franchise Than Star Wars

  When the subject of Star Wars and Power Rangers comes up, I’ve never really ever thought about comparing them. They both have been around for some time with Star Wars originating in 1977 and Power Rangers in 1993. Each have their fans but as far as comparisons go, that’s as far as it went, for me at least. However, in Power Ranger’s producer Adi Shankar’s mind, there is clearly a better franchise and it’s name is NOT Star Wars. Shankar delivered his own take on the Power Rangers franchise at “Power Morphicon”when he compared the franchise to Star Wars,

He has been chosen by Cersei as her champion for Tyrion’s trial by combat for the charge of killing

‘Game of Thrones’: Does a Lannister Survive The Great Game?

On Game of Thrones, you have to hand it to the Lannisters. While some Houses are going the way of the Dodo, i.e. The Freys almost the Tarleys, the House of Lannister endures. Tywin would be so proud of that. If you interpret what Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says,  it’s possible they make it through to the end. In an interview with the Huffington Post, Waldau explains: “It was a surprise,” Nikolaj Coster-Waldau tells HuffingtonPost. “God, every time we got a new script I thought, ‘OK, this is probably going to be the one.’ But no. The Lannister kids made it to the

‘Game of Thrones’: The Evolution of the Mountain, Pt.2

When we last got together, we had discussed the first actor who played The Mountain. After the first season of Game of Thrones was completed and as Season 2 approached, the casting for the “Mountain” became an issue as the actor who played the role (Conan Stevens) in Season 1 was working on other projects and was unavailable. Fortunately, they found a stopgap solution for Season 2 right on their set, as the “Mountain” saga continues (sounds like a soap opera intro): In Season 2, Ser Gregor is left to command Harrenhal in Tywin’s absence and to find and destroy
