Marc Guggenheim Talks Arrowverse Female-Centered Crossover Episode

Yesterday, we reported that several women from CW’s Arrowverse expressed interest in a female-centered crossover. While they were some who wanted to point out that Iris’s bachelorette party on The Flash constituted as one, well…no.

We are talking about a real crossover, where our female heroines team up to fight against evil while the male superheroes…I don’t know, play darts or something.

Zack Snyder Once Thought Budget Would Keep ‘WATCHMEN’ Off Television

When the HBO Watchmen series drops, it will be ten years after the film released in theaters. While many are happy to finally be getting a television show that centers around the Watchmen superheroes, film director Zack Snyder once had different opinions over the possibility of a small-screen series.

Now, HBO airs not only GOT, but Westworld, Big Little Lies, and other money racking shows. So,

The “Picard Maneuver,” it was a thing of legend back in the days when Star Trek: The Next Generation aired. Fans of the show know exactly what I am referring to. It was the move that Patrick Stewart’s Jean-Luc Picard had to do with his uniform every time the Captain had to stand.

When the planning for Star Trek: Discovery on CBS All Access, was underway they put a lot of thought into the practical consideration of

You Win or You Die: Brienne of Tarth

Brienne of Tarth is the most honorable character left in the show. She’s been through some rough patches, but really hasn’t been in critical circumstances since she was captured by the Bolton army back in season 3…and that fight with the Hound in the season 4 finale. However, outside of that, she’s been pretty safe. But with the Army of the Dead marching South, she’s bound to be put in danger very soon. It also doesn’t help that she is very honorable and willing to keep her oath to Catelyn Stark to keep Arya and Sansa safe, which could very
