Cartoon Network made its presentation to the Television Critic Association’s (TCA) annual meeting last Friday. Like other network’s TCA presentations, CN attempted to convince these opinion leaders that their programming is the one to watch. This time they just might have a sound argument for it, too.
From the sounds of things, they are dropping the constantly misfiring Fried Dynamite Fridays block for as yet unnamed new… Continue
Damn, I almost forgot there was a new "Star Trek" movie coming out due to the lack of news about the film. In case you forgot, director and LOST creator J.J. Abrams is relaunching the super nerd franchise back into the new frontier. Abrams finally gives a scoop to… Continue
Much has been said about a potential second villain for a 3rd batman film from Christopher Nolan (should he decide to do a third batman film), based on a poll from superherohype frequenters to the site want the Riddler.
However Nolan is known to only include details and characters into films that make logical sense and as Korey in the raw unedited audio review for the Dark knight would allude to – how do you make a man with green question… Continue
I'm just as excited about The Avengers movie as many people are but I wonder, if they couldn't make a Justice League live-action movie, how could they make an Avengers movie?
Well, first things first. When looking at this one must first focus upon why the Justice League Movie failed. There were a number of timing related issues like the writer's strike and the WB's available budgeting for films. But the biggest problems were the fan reactions to casting. These… Continue
Variety reports that "Saturday Night Live" star Amy Poehler is in final negotiations to join the cast of the new post-"Office" comedy from Greg Daniels and Mike Schur.
The series, despite initially being called an "Office" spin-off, isnt expected to be one after all — confirming speculation that the show would not be an extension of the original but a whole new series.
Poehler would join the already-cast Aziz Ansari, who became the series' first cast member last month.
Variety reports that Quentin Tarantino's Inglorious Bastards is searching for a co-financing partner to handle offshore territories for the WWII drama with intersecting storylines.
The director met with Brad Pitt in France on Tuesday to talk about the possibility of Pitt playing the key role of Aldo Raine. Tarantino also plans to meet with Leonardo DiCaprio for another lead role, that of Hans Landa, on Thursday.
DiCaprio and Pitt would be appearing in a Tarantino-helmed… Continue

Marvel Studios' first production and this summer's current top-grosser Iron Man, has been so successful, grossing over $560 million worldwide, that it was a foregone conclusion that a sequel would happen sooner rather than later. What might be surprising is that according to Variety, they're changing writers for the second movie, going with actor/filmmaker Justin Theroux to pen the sequel, which is planned for a late April release in 2010.
Well, the Dark knight is just around the corner and I feel the Buzz in the air. I really believe the Knight will take the box office by storm and will hold the record for some time, atleast untill Spidey makes his appearence in 2010. Iron Man being my Favorite so far of the year and possible the best Superhero movie ever made to date, really stands no chance to the Bat, already advance ticket sales have surpassed Iron Man. There is… Continue
For those of your unfamiliar with the comic book character Plastic Man, he's basically Jim Carrey with Mr. Fantastic's powers. He's a living cartoon character who'll turn into a toilet and literally flush the bad guys, or smack them as a huge flyswatter. Now I'm not exactly a die hard fan the Pliable Prankster, he's amusing enough as a guest… Continue
I havent been here in a while. I've been working fourty hours a week at a summer job, which is way too much for a kid fresh out of high school, I dont care what anyone says. So I havent had time to catch up with my movies for the summer. However, lets get these reviews out of the way.
Although I am a huge fan of comics and superheroes, I really hate Superman. The reason for this is that he is the Beverly Hills teenager of… Continue
Now if anyone who knows me here on Spill know that I am indeed a comic book geek but Batman has always been the shit for me. People whi know how smart I really am would say "Oh yeah he's seeing The Dark Knight on opening weekend."
I will not be seeing The Dark Knight this weekend. Because well I am a high school graduate and still living at home and my dad usually takes me and my brothers to the movies. He's in a golf tournament this weekend… Continue

Megan Fox told Fox News she had to gain 10 pounds in three weeks for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen following a dramatic weight loss for her last film, Jennifer's Body. She also talked a bit about Sam and Mikaela's relationship in the sequel:
"I should have toned up for 'Transformers' but I'm really lazy. I had to put on weight," she told Pop Tarts. "I'd lost a lot of weight and got really scrawny, but I was told I had to put on size for 'Transformers' because Michael [Bay, the… Continue

Colonel Johnny Rico (Casper Van Dien) is back busting bugs in the highly-anticipated sequel – as far as I’m concerned, that “Hero of the Federation” thing, starring Richard Burgi, doesn’t count – to Paul Verhoeven’s political satire, “Starship Troopers”.
In this one, Rico teams with some old friends to defeat bugs on a distant planet know only as OM-1. Jolene Blalock (the sexy Vulcan from “Enterprise”) plays a soldier pal, joining Rico on…Continue
