“We want female superhero movies!” say fans. “But women don’t sell tickets,” say execs. The argument’s been done to death. It’s time for concrete proof. And YOU have can provide that proof. So get off your keyboard and buy a ticket to Wonder Woman on opening weekend.

Why? Because despite being an icon, who hasn’t had a feature film, comicbook.com projects Wonder Woman as having the LOWEST DCEU OPENING WEEKEND! This means one thing, it’s up to us fans to make this movie a success.

Do you want that? If you do stop reading, if you don’t read on. (more…)

“Broken” Matt Hardy and “Brother Nero” Jeff Hardy

By Todd Matthy

On Thursday December 15th at 8pm/7C on POP TV, the wrestling world will be rocked to the core when TNA WRESTLING presents TOTAL NONSTOP DELETION!!!!!!!

An entire episode of IMPACT WRESTLING originating from the The Hardy Compound that will culminate in a final battle known as APOCALYPTO.

If past journeys to the Compound are any indication, there is no way for me to explain what you should expect. So I turned to “Brother Nero” himself, JEFF HARDY, to explain TOTAL NONSTOP DELETION!

It’s very hard for friends and family to understand why I’m a wrestling fan. Making it harder is when you try to show them, WWE books something stupid and your they look at you and say, “you watch this?” (SummerSlam 2005 is a perfect example)

Then something reminds you of why you love wrestling. A match that inspires you to buy a ticket because you wanted to be there and witness history. Last year in Brooklyn, Sasha Banks and Bayley reminded me of why I fell in love with wrestling.  Want to know why and see EXCLUSIVE photos and video from the Nosebleed Section?  (more…)

I got to see an advanced screen of Jason Bourne todayIf you haven’t seen any of the Bourne movies, do not start here. MINOR SPOILERS below because I’m going to tell you why.  (more…)

Author’s note: I do not know the intricacies of Hollywood contract negotiations. And I’m aware that every case is unique.  This article is an opinion based what I see as a logical chain of events. If you have knowledge of Hollywood contract negotiations, feel free to leave a comment.

 

I read there’s a petition to have Zack Snyder fired as director of Justice League. While I agree that he doesn’t understand Superman, echo the sentiments many share of Batman vs. Superman, and am pro-people expressing themselves, I’m going to give the petitioners a dose of reality. (And this applies to super-hero casting as well) Your petition doesn’t matter.

Why? Because if Zack Snyder is announced as director of Justice League it means he’s under contract. That means he cannot be fired or replaced unless he breaks that contract.

Also, Zack Snyder has an agent. Zack Snyder’s agent reviews his contracts before he signs them. Do you really believe that Zack Snyder’s agent would let him sign a contract where Internet outrage was a firing offense? If he’s a good agent, definitely not.

If you want to protest Zack Snyder’s vision, don’t buy a ticket. That’s the only thing you can do. Because unless he breaks his contract or decides he wants out, we’re stuck with him. To paraphrase Jay Sherman, if you think Zack Snyder’s vision stinks, ” just don’t go” because in the end that is all you can do.

Its the most anticipated number four in comics history, so forgive the hyperbole.

In the right corner, from Topeka, Kansas, the cult that gives cults a bad name. Ladies and gentlemen, the most hated group in America, the Westboro Baptist Church!

To the left, from New York City, accompanied by their mascot, Teddy Mercury, they are the punk rockers cursed to walk the Earth as zombies whenever their music is played. Ladies and Gentlemen, Toe Tag Riot!

It’s been awhile since I’ve written a wrestling post. But this merits attention. When I started this blog a few years back, to amuse myself and hone my writing skills I did a fantasy booking scenario where Sting came to WWE.

I laid out on a week-to-week basis, everything that would’ve been done had Sting become a full-time member of WWE’s roster. Was it good? That’s for you to decide. I consider what I did my scratching of the itch to be a WWE Writer. I still want to write wrestling, (and may in another format ;)) but if it doesn’t happen, at least I know I put my ideas out there. Then something happened.

At Survivor Series on November 23rd, Sting made his first appearance in a WWE ring. And he did it to conclude a major story. I screamed. I couldn’t believe it. The moment I dreamed of was here and it didn’t disappoint. Sting laid out Triple H, allowing Dolph Zigger to pin Seth Rollins and free the WWE Universe from the oppression of the Authority. It was perfect. Now what? (more…)
