Wonder Woman TV Series Plot Details

Plot details have emerged about The CW's upcoming Wonder Woman TV series, tentatively titled, Amazon.

When the news hit a few months back that the network would be taking yet another crack at DC Comics' bikini-clad, lasso-lobbing luminary, it was immediately made clear that it would be going in a completely different direction from the TV pilot headed by David E. Kelley which was completely scrapped last year.

This version appears more interested in chronicling the early life of the heroine, similar to what Smallville did for Superman. However, a rather lengthy summary of the show's plot has emerged, revealing that the show's direction is even more different than we thought. It seems that the would-be Wonder Woman will be portrayed as a young immigrant whose life has been filled with war, who must now cope with something she cannot comprehend: Life in the good 'ole US-of-A.

Check out the plot summary for the yet-to-be-completed script below!

Iron Man 3: New Photos Released

Iron Man 3: New Photos Released
("Suck it, Steve Rogers.")

Marvel has officially released 4 new photos from Iron Man 3, the next entry on deck for the array of films in their Avengers saga, hitting May 3, 2013.

While each of these images were taken from the spectacular debut trailer that hit last month, they do serve to bring some things to focus that were largely ignored; Namely Rebecca Hall's character of Maya Hansen; one of the scientists who, along with Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce), develop the "Extremis" nano-virus, which will become a critical point in the film's plot, causing carnage, but also giving Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark a HUGE boost to his tech.

Besides that, we also have another good look at the "Iron Patriot" armor that James Rhodes (Don Cheadle) will sport in the film, as well as a few snapshots of the hard times that await Tony in this third solo outing.

Check out the rest of the pics below!

Guardians Of The Galaxy: Who Will Lead?

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy are currently in the process of looking for someone to cast as their team leader, Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord.

According to Deadline, that search has been narrowed down to a short list of five candidates for the coveted role the Marvel's Comics' interplanetary policeman:

(Pictured left to right) Joel Edgerton (Warrior, The Thing,) Eddie Redmayne (Les Misérables, The Pillars of the Earth,) Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire, Eastwick,) Jim Sturgess (Cloud Atlas, The Way Back,) and Lee Pace (The Hobbit Trilogy, Pushing Daisies.)

Additionally, another crop of names is reportedly floating around for the choice of a proper protagonist for this cosmic curiosity of a Marvel comic book adaptation.

X-Men: Days Of Future To Add Wolverine?

It appears that the new X-Men cast could be getting a bit of adamantium-aligned backup.

Hugh Jackman is reportedly in talks to appear as Wolverine in the upcoming prequel-sequel, X-Men: Days of Future Past for what would be (after next summer's The Wolverine,) his sixth time in the X-Men film franchise. (The seventh if you count his cameo in X-Men: First Class.)

Only a few days after learning that Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart would be returning in the film to reprise their roles, respectively as Magneto and Professor Charles Xavier, it should hardly come as a huge shock that Fox would be working on ways to wrangle in the franchise's most popular and iconic character.

What will this mean for Days of Future Past?

S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Series Adds New Agent

Actor, Brett Dalton may still be a relatively unknown newcomer, but nevertheless, it appears that he's ready to suit up with the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on the upcoming spinoff TV series of the Marvel films to help defend the planet from various baddies.

It is being reported that Dalton has been cast as a character named "Agent Grant Ward," who will be joining the existing cast of Ming-Na Wen as "Agent Melinda May," Elizabeth Henstridge as "Agent Gemma Simmons," Iain De Caestecker as "Agent Leo Fitz," and, lest anyone forget the main event, Clark Gregg returning to the franchise as "Agent Phil Coulson."

Dalton will be bringing somewhat of a thin resume to the show with only a few notable appearances on TV's Blue Bloods, Army Wives, and the upcoming TV movie, Killing Lincoln. However, he will be filling the role of a potential scene-stealer in Agent Ward, who has been described in casting details as quiet, temperamental, anti-social, but cool under fire; "the kind of guy that grows on you." (Could he be the Daryl Dixon of S.H.I.E.L.D.?)

Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. is reportedly set to begin production (...okay, "assemble") in January.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past Get Ian McKellen And Patrick Stewart

It appears that X-Men: Days of Future Past, the upcoming sequel to last year's X-Men: First Class, will be adding some familiar faces to the "sort-of rebooted" franchise.

It is being reported that Ian McKellen will return to don his helmet and cause metallic carnage as Magneto and that Patrick Stewart will also get ready to polish his wheelchair and practice his "mind-reading face" before once again becoming Professor Charles Xavier.

Some moviegoers may be scratching their heads at this revelation since those characters were portrayed by Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy respectively in First Class. However, the time-traveling aspects of the famous "Days of Future Past" comic book storyline on which the film will be based has created a unique opening allowing the film to give us the best of both worlds. (*Not a Star Trek: The Next Generation reference.)

What could be in store for fans of all things mutant?

As anyone who watches The Walking Dead realizes, a good melee weapon goes a long way in sticky situations and can make the difference between survival and ending up the main course of a human buffet line.

While Michonne's famous katana has managed to do the trick thus far, it pales in comparison to wielding a whooshing, luminescent "elegant weapon for a more civilized age."

Sure, a stickler might point out that blood would not be spewing from those walkers since the wounds would have cauterized if she was really using a lightsaber. However, it turns out she was swinging it so fast that she startled the laws of physics, causing a ripple in the universe.

So, that explains...that.

Bill Paxton is taking a break from Hollywood for the world of graphic novels. Blair Butler caught up with Paxton at New York Comic-Con to talk about the graphic novel he produced called Seven Holes For Air. The comic has just been released digitally, if you want to check it out.

Seven Holes For Air revolves around a working class guy with a normal life as a construction worker. While his daily life is taking place an alternate story where he lives in a spaghetti Western is playing out. Eventually these two stories meet, and I'm going to make an educated guess here, chaos ensues.

The Last of Us: Eight Pittsburgh Locations We Can't Wait to See in Ruins

A graphic novel for The Last of Us was announced today at New York Comic-Con. The main focus of the Dark Horse published comic will be Ellie's life before the events of The Last of Us.  The graphic novel will be penned by Naughty Dog's Neil Druckman and contributing author on Steam-Powered stories, Rachel Edidin.

“In Ellie’s world, when you enter into its version of middle school, you can either choose to become a soldier and go out and fight, or you can say no and go out to fend for yourself with the other survivors,” Druckman said during the NYCC panel. “Those are the two ways a teenager can live in this world. Ellie believes there is a third way."

"The Goon" needs your help. The comic book has become legendary among comics fans in its dozen year life, bringing fans killer robots, mobsters, zombies, killer robots, giant fish-men, and every outrageous thing in between, but with your help, a feature Goon film could be released to a wider audience.

"The Goon" film is coming from comic creator Eric Powell, David Fincher (critically-acclaimed director of "Seven," "Fight Club," and "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo") and Dark Horse Entertainment, but needs 400,000 clams to create a story reel for the film, and thus raise the rest of the money for a big budget animated film.

You can give your money at The Goon's Kickstarter page. If you're a high-roller, make sure you give $10,000 -- you'll get a lunch with the creative team behind the movie, as well as your own private screening.

Splinter Cell Echoes Comic Book Announcement Trailer »


A comic book based on Splinter Cell is on the way. The Splinter Cell Echoes graphic novel takes place between the events of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist . The story bridges the gap between the two games, and aims to provide readers with a realistic, original story that sets the tone for the opening events in Splinter Cell Blacklist. It will be released in 2013.

"Nathan Edmondson and Marc Laming are respected experts in their fields and we are so incredibly fortunate to have them on board for the Splinter Cell graphic novel," said Patrick Redding, game director, Ubisoft Toronto. "Nathan's work in The Activity put him on our radar with its gripping balance between real-world geopolitics and high-tech spy fantasy themes we also explore in Splinter Cell. We're confident that all readers -- whether they've played every game in the series or are new to the franchise -- are going to really engage with this story and the level of fine detail Nathan and Marc inject into their book."

We'll have more details when they are announced.

The Batman Live! Tour is an action-packed theater experience unlike any other, and our own Kristin Adams gets a behind-the-scenes look from lead actors Sam Heughan, Emma Clifford, Mark Frost and Christopher D. Hunt. It's a Dark Knight comic book, live on stage.
