Final Four Episodes of The Flash!!!

Is everyone digging the Flash as much as I am? I felt it was off to a bit of a slow start, and didn't care much for the casting choices, but I'm absolutely riveted to the screen now! I love it when a show like this pays respect to the previous incarnation by including cast members from the 1990 series. My hope for a future storyline involves having Barry's dad; the Flash from the 1990 series, being tapped by the speed force and "giggle" donning the familiar red long johns once more!! I also love the ongoing Arrow crossovers, and the Flash vs Arrow episode was one of the best of the season! 

A “TV Justice League” team-up between Flash, Arrow (or “Assassin Arrow”) and Firestorm.

Gorilla Grodd in all his cgi glory!
Now, lets talk about what all of you are thinking; the Reverse Flash. I have only two words for the folks over at the CW; WELL. DONE. Tom Cavanaugh is spot-on as the deadly speedster masquerading as Eobard Thawne masquerading as crippled scientist Harrison Wells!! I love the twist, I love the costume, I love the Crisis on Infinite Earths reference, and I'm beyond excited that it's all headed for... wait for it... SPOILER ALERT... FLASHPOINT!!! The only thing that excites me as much as the RF can be summed up in three words; "Not God... GRODD". I really hope to see some real action from the super-smart Simian before the season finale. There's only four episodes left, but in the meantime, you can watch the new season 1 ending trailer for the “Endgame”;

First Look at X-Men: Age of Apocalypse's Nightcrawler!

Another X-Men movie, another young X-Man. Here we see the first official pic of Kodi Smit-McPhee as everyone's favorite blue-skinned demon teleporter!


 Smit-McPhee definitely has more of an 80's look, which fits perfectly into the timeline in which the film takes place. His outfit is also more closely related to his comic-book version as well. Of course, the big question is; will he measure up to the spectacular performance given by Alan Cumming in X-2? These are VERY large 2-toed shoes to fill, as Cumming's Nightcrawler was arguably the best thing about X-2 (Don't get me wrong, it was a great movie). I for one, am very excited to find out! Check out the pic of Alan Cumming's Nightcrawler below for comparison;

First (Full) Pic of Jared Leto's Joker

Yes, I am back! I've been busy working on other things, but now it's time get come home to my first born. Plus, there's just so much to talk about lately! With all that's happening in comics and film, it's a great time to be a geek! I mean c'mon; a full trailer for Star Wars AND Batman vs Superman on the same weekend?!? Face it kids; these ARE the good ol' days!

Anywho, back to the post at hand; we've seen the teases of Leto and the back of his green noggin', and then the so-so re-creation of the cover from "The Killing Joke". Now we have the full reveal; 


 what do you think? For me, it's a little too gangster (or should I say "gangsta" for those of the more urban vernacular) mixed in with unstable crack/meth user. I don't really dig the tattoos as I feel they've been stripped from generic t-shirt designs found at your local Wal-Mart. I would like to see what he will be wearing in the film, as the clothes truly make the psychotic super villain, but I'm scared it will involve saggy purple jeans and a green wife-beater. I guess my only hope is that Leto's considerable acting chops will make up for and distract from this hot mess.
