Things are progressing on the third Arrowverse TV show: more casting, possible title, and episode run

(via Broadway.com)
Man, oh man, the details for that new show is just coming out of the woodwork. First, two more characters have been revealed: Hawkgirl and Rip Hunter! Ciara Renée will be playing the most recent incarnation of Hawkgirl, Kendra Saunders, while Doctor Who alumni Arthur Darvill will be playing time traveler Rip Hunter. Yeah, Rory just can't escape time travel. I just wonder how many (if any) Doctor Who references the writers are going to toss in. There's gotta be at least one or two. I wonder which version of Saunders they're going to use though: the original or the New 52 version.

Ouch, Taskmaster, that's harsh


From Ant-Man Volume 2 #3 (Spencer/Rosanas).

So this entire time Scott Lang has had some kind of one-sided arch-rivalry with a guy who wasn't even aware of it? Hopefully Scott won't spend the rest of his day listening to Taylor Swift songs and moping. Scott does get back at him with a nice zinger about the rather incoherent theme of Taskmaster's costume.

Thank you, AJ

So it was announced yesterday that AJ Lee is retiring from WWE. Huh.

You ever have one of those days where it just does not pay to get out of bed? I'll post something longer on Monday, because this isn't something to be rushed.

Fear the Walking Dead? Really?

Wow, that is certainly a name for a spinoff of The Walking Dead. Certainly a name. Yep.


Better Call Saul of the Walking Dead would have been a better choice. Just saying.

Dat Deadpool movie costume

Dang, that is a nice bear skin rug.
(via /Film)
Ryan Reynolds tweeted it today and it looks nice. I like how some movie costumes are being made with all the fake musculature like the batsuits have. I don't think baddies really give two shits about whether a hero has a sixpack or not.

Pop quiz, hot shot: When I problem comes along you must:

A. Study the problem in order to formulate a plan of action.
B. Flee in terror into the night.
C. Whip it, whip it good.
D. None of the above.

New old posts

Just FYI, I just imported posts from a blog that I'm shutting down. Mostly just mysteries and thriller stuff.

Here's the first two pictures of Melissa Benoist as Supergirl in CBS's upcoming show

 I really like the costume, even though others don't. It's obviously patterned after the costume Henry Cavill wore in Man of Steel, but it's a much better design. The skirt might seem a bit outdated, but I think retaining it was an excellent idea because it's a signature part of Supergirl's many costumes across all of the different media she's appeared in. The stockings are the only thing I'm feeling iffy about because they're an odd addition. I'm assuming they're supposed to help maintain the dark color scheme of the boots, skirt, and cape. And maybe to provide some coverage in case there's an updraft and Kara doesn't want to world to know she wears Minecraft underwear?

Google backs off of adult content ban

https://support.google.com/blogger/answer/6177281?p=policy_update&rd=1

This week, we announced a change to Blogger’s porn policy stating that blogs that distributed sexually explicit images or graphic nudity would be made private.
We’ve received lots of feedback about making a policy change that impacts longstanding blogs, and about the negative impact this could have on individuals who post sexually explicit content to express their identities.
We appreciate the feedback. Instead of making this change, we will be maintaining our existing policies.

What this means for blog owners

  • Commercial porn will continue to be prohibited.
  • If you have pornographic or sexually explicit content on your blog, you must turn on the adult content setting so a warning will show. If a blog with adult content is brought to Google’s attention and the content warning is not active, we will turn on the warning interstitial for you. If this happens repeatedly, the blog may be removed.
  • If you don't have sexually explicit content on your blog and you're following the rest of the Blogger Content Policy, you don't need to make any changes to your blog.
