This year is full of great science fiction and fantasy TV series. Actually, 2016 is too full. Seriously, check out how long this list of new, returning and potentially premiering shows due out over the next 12 months is. When are we going to get a chance to leave the house and watch all those great movies, or read all…
Wives and girlfriends of superheroes aren’t as hard-done-by as parents of superheros, but they’re a close second. Not only do they inevitably have a rough time, but everybody (including fans) hate them—which is no surprise. Each superhero girlfriend has a large number of factors working against her.
This year’s genre television gave us high highs and low lows—sometimes on the same show! In no particular order, we’ve rounded up the year’s best moments, along with some of the absolute worst. SPOILERS AHEAD.
Arrow is coming back this week. Season three was polarizing to many fans, with its endless plot twists and its epic craziness—but we love plot twists and epic craziness. They’re the very essence of comics! And in that spirit, here are ten totally awesome Green Arrow comics plots that Arrow should tackle.
The fastest, most powerful, most accurate bows ever made are modern compound designs. What advantages do they have over traditional bows of yore and how do you shoot one?
This week is all about Windows 10 (as it should be), but that doesn’t mean mobile operating systems decided to take a weeklong vacation. We’ve got a new launcher from Microsoft, ways to finally get down to business and learn code, and Yahoo’s zombified resurrection of Yahoo Messenger.
Legends Of Tomorrow isn’t due out until 2016 on The CW, but Entertainment Weekly has a cool glimpse of some concept art, and it looks exciting.
DC has refreshed its stable of comics once again, putting its characters in new situations— and most of them have gotten a new look to celebrate. But as usual with superhero makeovers, some are less successful than others. So we’re going to put on our fashion-hats and rate what’s hot and what’s not in the DC Universe!
At first I thought it was a little weird that DC Collectibles’ Arrow series didn’t make a Laurel figure — but I’m kind of glad they waited. Instead of a “Laurel Lance, DA, with hamfisted pill addiction plotline action!” toy getting made, we’re getting an awesome Black Canary version of her. Yay!
Despite both being big hits on The CW, it's taken a while for Arrow and The Flash to get some great toys (we're still waiting on that Felicity Smoak from Toy Fair!). Funko are stepping in to fill the void with some new figures based on the shows... but you might want to hold off on being excited for them.
The Arrow we see on television is essentially Batman with a Bow, and we love him for it - but Oliver Queen's stern nature as the archer of undetermined viridian hue is exactly well reflected in this new Funko Pop toy. In fact, he looks pretty damn adorable for a vigilante who goes about sticking arrows in people.
Arrow has had a few action figures to its name, but somehow it's taken this long to get a plastic incarnation of everyone's favourite hacker badass, Felicity Smoak. Well, huzzah - DC Collectibles have unveiled her figure as well as new figures based on The Flash and Batman: The Animated Series too!
Arrow's latest midseason finale featured some pretty impressive sword fighting as Oliver took the fight to the League of Assassins - but, as with all swordfights, they can be improved with the humble addition of Lightsabers.
Ever longed for the sartorial elegance of Clara Oswald? Ogled over the many (many) suits of Oliver Queen? Here's a new website that collates the looks of your favourite TV and movie characters, and shows you where to buy them. Is it sort of cosplay if you start wearing your favourite character's snazziest threads?
This is going to be a huge year for science fiction and fantasy television, including some major A-list creators (Jonathan Nolan, Chris Miller and Phil Lord!) coming to the small screen to make beautiful love your eyes and faces. This is your year, people! Here’s our complete guide to 2015’s science fiction and…
The start of a new year is a time for looking forward - and as a fan of Comic book movies and shows, there's definitely lots I'm excited for in 2015. But looking back on the last year, I find myself hoping that all the Comic loveliness ahead of us remembers one of the best lessons learned in 2014: it's okay to be fun.
Huh. Warner TV Asia has released a teaser trailer for this week's Arrow Midseason Finale, purportedly revealing the final look of Brandon Routh's Atom armour suit. But if you're a fan of the apocalyptic RPG Fallout 3, it might look more than a little familiar to you. (UPDATED)
Autumn has begun, and that means only one thing: The Fall TV season has started, and we're on the cusp of a very special time for nerdy TV shows. That is, unless you're like me and live in the UK, in which case: The Golden Age will not be Televised... yet.
Yesterday we took a look at Variety's article on the swathe of Superhero shows coming to TV - and how it noted Marvel and DC's different approaches to linking their Live-action ventures together. Whilst the shared cinematic universe have proved a huge boon to Marvel, I don't think DC need to go down the same path.
After years of superhero films dominating the box office, this Autumn sees the Hero craze dominate TV, with 6 series coming to our screens. In a new in-depth piece for Variety covering the rise of Superheroic TV, both Marvel and DC have made interesting comments for and against tying TV and the big screen together.
