Has Wilson Bethel Been Confirmed as Villain Bullseye?

While actor Wilson Bethel had been brought on to Daredevil as early as last November, his character had never officially been revealed. His role had been described as “pivotal” and “who will play a critical role in the conflict” between Daredevil and Wilson Fisk. Still, we all know that Marvel likes misleading us fans, in a good way of course; to ensure that we are truly surprised when they do decide to release their episodes. In a post on Instagram, though; it seems that Bethel may have unofficially been announced as the well-known villain Bullseye. If you look at the hashtags,

Marvel Is Responsible For Cancellation of Glover’s ‘Deadpool’

  There was a time that Donald Glover had plans to make an animated Deadpool series for FX. Unfortunately, those plans were unceremoniously cancelled. In response, Glover posted a script for an unmade episode, which he appeared to write in response to the cancellation that spoofed both Marvel Television and current pop culture in pure Wade Wilson style. FX CEO John Landgraf revealed at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour that Marvel pulled the plug on the series Donald and brother Stephen Glover were creating although he didn’t specify why. “They didn’t want to do the show that Donald

Sir Patrick Stewart to Return to ‘Star Trek’ As Picard

Nerds everywhere have begun to celebrate as one of pop culture’s most respected actors is making his return to the Star Trek franchise: Sir Patrick Stewart has officially announced his role in an upcoming Star Trek television series as Jean-Luc Picard during this year’s Star Trek Las Vegas convention. Few details have been released about the new star trek series or Picard’s role within it – indeed, there is speculation as to whether or not Picard will even don the title of Captain – but Stewart did indicate that this show will continue the plot after the events of Star

Were Billy Russo’s Motives Villainous or Just Selfish?

“Maybe this article is a bit taboo; after all, I’m a huge Frank Castle fan. During the entirety of Daredevil season two, I supported every kill The Punisher had. I rooted for him to take down every person involved in the murder of his family in the spin-off show, The Punisher. In the comics, Billy Russo and Frank Castle are enemies right off the bat and it would be easier if they went that route to just want Castle to put down the villain now known as Jigsaw. But, then they had to cast Ben Barnes and give him an

Simon and Schuster to Release New Star Trek: TNG novel

In the interest of full disclosure, I am a huge Star Trek Geekzilla. There, I said it! My therapist said that admitting the problem is half the battle. (I think I might have heard something similar from G.I. Joe.) But as usual, I digress. The evidence of this is found in my fondness for the Star Trek Novels. Back in the ancient days of my childhood, I used to own a huge collection of the “Pocketbooks” Original Series paperbacks. That included some of my favorites “Yesterday’s Son” by A.C. Crispin, “Ishmael” by Barbara Hambly, and “The Vulcan Academy Murders” by

Five Times Ward Meachum was Done with Everyone

Iron Fist season two is around the corner and while everyone is excited about the possibility of a new and improved Danny Rand, there is someone in Iron Fist that I am looking forward to being reunited with. Ward Meachum. You may remember him as the character in the first season who we all thought was a bit of a pretentious ass. After delving further into the show, we watch him become a heroin addict, and then learn about the dark secrets he has been forced to keep from his sister for years. As someone who just didn’t ask for

Andrew Lincoln Doesn’t Want Rick Grimes Killed Off

At this point, we all know that Andrew Lincoln is departing the show. Due to wanting to be closer to his family in England, he has made the decision to leave the show. When an actor leaves The Walking Dead, it’s typically not in a nice fashion. Either you are turned into a walker or killed off in a pretty horrific way i.e. Negan killing off Glenn and Abraham in the season seven premiere. Andrew Lincoln has expressed that despite the limited options, he really doesn’t want to see Rick killed off. Bringing up Lennie James, who plays Morgan; Lincoln pointed

‘Game of Thrones’ Star Maisie Williams Reveals the One Scene She Wasn’t Allowed to Watch

It’s hard to remember that Arya Stark’s star Maisie Williams was a very young girl when the show first started out. The characters of Game of Thrones may have grown up around violence, drinking, and plenty of sex, but the actors behind the scenes were young children just like you and I once were. At the age of 14, Williams was around plenty of NC-17 raciness that she described as being quite awkward to be around. “The sex was just quite ­embarrassing and awkward for us,” Williams says about her and Sophie Turner, who was only fifteen at the beginning
