'Arrow' Will An Old Friend Able To Save The Fallen Hero

Oliver Queen finally tells Felicity how he really feels before he goes off to die...

the night desk's insight:

There were so many heartbreaking things about last night's episode with the climax being Oliver's loved ones streaming through his mind right before his body careens off the side of the mountain. Since Oliver was required climb the mountain moments before the battle, you have to ask yourself if this fatigued state caused him to fail before they even began to fight...what happens now? The preview shows his friend Toshi retrieving his body, and claiming he is dead. Are the reports of Oliver Queen's death being greatly exaggerated to protect him until he is strong enough to protect himself?

Trailer: 'The Flash vs. Arrow' CW Superhero Showdown Event Begins Tonight!

Trailer: 'The Flash vs. Arrow' CW Superhero Showdown Event Begins Tonight! | Comics | Scoop.it
An extended trailer for the first part of The CW's inter-series superhero crossover 'The Flash vs. Arrow' pits Barry Allen's speed versus Oliver Queen's resourcefulness.
the night desk's insight:

Since the show's pilot and even before, we have seen periodic crossovers between these two superhero shows, but looks like this one will be slightly different, much more of an edge. In the previews they show Barry fighting against the Arrow in some kind of "I'm better than you" standoff, although I'm not sure why this would ever be happening, I suspect all is not what it seems to be in the trailer. Could the evil Dr. Wells have something to do with this, and how long do you think it will take for them to figure out that their mentor is preparing to become the worst villain of all time?

'Jurassic World' First Trailer To Premiere On NBC's Thanksgiving Football

The Park Is Open June 12, Steven Spielberg returns to executive ...

the night desk's insight:

After seeing the first one, and the others based around the clean up of the first 'Jurassic Park,' why would they ever open another dinosaur "amusement" park, because sooner or later there will a mess... a huge, undeniable bloodbath no one will walk away from this time.  I have to admit this gory fun fact, and Chris Pratt being in the movie, make it irresistible to me. I will be one of those people at the theaters at midnight to see the first showing... I hope there will be a midnight showing or I'll just be the creepy person hanging around outside the theater... Now, the trailer is set to be premiered on NBC only since it is a Universal movie, makes sense to promote and support your company, but I'm sure within hours if you're not a football fan, it will be shown on youtube.com.  As soon as we see it, we'll link to it for you. For now, here is the site with the countdown.

'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' That's Right The Kree Have It

'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' That's Right The Kree Have It | Comics | Scoop.it

In a TV Guide interview, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. executive producer Jeffrey Bell has released the name of the blue aliens..

the night desk's insight:

It looks like the internet rumors were right on the money, the mysterious blue aliens are from the Kree race. The Kree are said to be part of upcoming Marvel movie 'Inhumans' due out in the next 5 to 7 years.  Ronan, the demented guy with the huge hammer on 'Guardians of the Galaxy' was also one of these Kree fellas.  Although we saw very little of the Kree on 'Guardians,' you have to wonder whether they were like Ronan, or somewhat less psychotic.  It seems Wards warnings of Skye's darker nature may come to light sooner than we had thought. Keep watching 'Agents of Shield' to find out more.  The Kree revelation episode is due out December 2nd. Enjoy. Which alien race did you think Mr. Blue Giant hailed from?

'Gotham's Dirty Little Secret...

'Gotham's Dirty Little Secret... | Comics | Scoop.it

Gotham's a haven for the sick and twisted  in all walks of life

the night desk's insight:

Monday night's 'Gotham' revealed a much darker problem than just the collusion between it's underworld and powers that be in city government, every single area of the city is ridden with violence and corruption. Of course after last week's heroic assist from Bullock, we would have thought this week that maybe those fellow officers would have been less likely to return to their cowardly ways, but at last it seems the yellow stripe was ever present.  Once again Bullock comes into save the day and his partner by rallying the troops on Jim's behalf. I know this show is about Jim Gordon and Penguin, but I have to say I feel Detective Bullock seems to be the consistent, although tarnished hero of the bunch. Who is your favorite 'Gotham' character?

Spoilers! For Upcoming Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Episodes

Spoilers! For Upcoming Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Episodes | Comics | Scoop.it

Is Ward really a big fat liar or is his brother the dear Senator as pathological as he claims him to be

the night desk's insight:

In the eighth episode of the second season we will find out many answers to our questions, that one in particular it seems. Spoilers as follows: in the episode called "The Things We Bury" Coulson and team find themselves in an epic face-off against Hydra to uncover an ancient secret (although that's nothing new it should be a hell of a lot of fun to watch), while Ward kidnaps his brother, Senator Christian Ward, for a violent trip down memory lane, which should expose all kinds of things about Ward and his recently revealed power family. I wasn't sure whether Coulson was losing his edge to tell when someone was lying, or did he just not care one way or the other that Ward's brother is a much bigger threat than Ward ever was... what do you think..... did Coulson know that the senator was as monstrous as Ward had claimed or is Ward just trying to excuse his disgusting behavior?

'Wonder Woman' Movie Set For 2017, But Will The Changes To Character Doom The Movie?

'Wonder Woman' Movie Set For 2017, But Will The Changes To Character Doom The Movie? | Comics | Scoop.it

Warner Bros sets Wonder Woman for 2017 release


Via Sci-Fi Talk Official
the night desk's insight:

A 'Wonder Woman' movie has been long anticipated by the public and comic fans alike, but will the news of altered character back story negatively affect the movie before it ever reaches the box office... 'Wonder Woman' fans have been waiting to see the amazonian superhero, who originated from a special island where there lived a race of strong idyllic females, although they didn't consider themselves as special, nor their superior gifts as anything but commonplace. The upcoming movie has replaced her original backstory with a male dominated tale missing the mark completely about what this character represented to those who love her.  WIll you go to see this child of Zeus version of 'Wonder Woman' at the box office or will you skip it?

'Marvel's Agents of SHIELD' Deepens Our Questions Of All Things Skye

Marvel's Agents of SHIELD preview for episode 4 "I Will Face My Enemy" 

the night desk's insight:

Last night's episode saw the tortured, angry side of Fitz as he gave Ward a dose of his own medicine. Surprisingly, a hypoxic Ward worried more about Skye's safety than his own, warning Fitz of the advanced "training" received by freezer burnt Donnie Gill while in SHIELD custody. It was truly sad last night watching what had become of the once sweet confused academy kid thanks to his HYDRA frenemies. There was nothing much the team could do for him except send him to the icy depths to wait until someone can thaw his bitter cold heart. What did you think of last night's episode, love it, hate it or were just happy to see the non imaginary Simmons?

First Look At Adrianne Palicki's Mockingbird For 'Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'

First Look At Adrianne Palicki's Mockingbird For 'Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' | Comics | Scoop.it

Adrianne Palicki portraying Bobbi Morse, aka Mockingbird, in season 2 of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.


Via Sci-Fi Talk Official
the night desk's insight:

Our newest Hydra agent is revealed in EW magazine, the surprise was her new dark hair, since in the comics she was blonde, wasn't she?  I'm sure Adrianne Palicki will do brilliant in her new role, and be a great addition to the S.H.I.E.L.D. team once she turns her back on Hydra, that is. Although, there is no word yet on when she will be doing that, whether it's this season or next. This will give us something to look forward to now that Lucy Lawless' character died so abruptly, but I suspect the bloodshed will be very high this season. What was the most shocking plot twist on the premiere of S.H.I.E.L.D. for you?

'Gotham' Pilot Has Mixed Acceptance

'Gotham' Pilot Has Mixed Acceptance | Comics | Scoop.it

Gotham pilot is released to eager fans... what did you think?

the night desk's insight:

'Gotham' seemed to keep with the dark, unruly drudge of a town we have all known so well in the many incarnations of the Batman legend, but will it be enough to keep audiences interested in a show about the rise of Jim Gordon, and the premise of a good man fighting relentless evil and corruption within the guidelines of the law. We have already seen what turned the penguin from an introverted servant to a blood thirsty monster, will the rest of the criminal gang be as easily altered from their original path. I, for one, can't see Catwoman flipping quite so quick, but the Penguin has always been a little unhinged from the get go, which made his journey to insanity a short one. What did you think of the new 'Gotham'?

'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Returns This Tuesday At 9

What will this season bring to the table or to the beds of our S.H.I.E.L.D...

the night desk's insight:

Yes, when we left them things were less than ideal for our heroic group, but where do they go from here now their world has been taken away by their ultimate enemy. Coulson finding "his" truth, began to splinter into his "new reality" without anyone noticing his slip into madness.  Ward found his humanity by falling for possibly the darkest entity the earth will ever know in Skye.  Jemma has destroyed her rose colored glasses, while Fitz may have lost what makes him brilliant in a single push of a button.  Can Melinda May bring this group of troubled heroes back to the heroic team they once were?

Robert Downey Jr. Loved 'Guardians' As Much As The Rest Of Us

Robert Downey Jr. Loved 'Guardians' As Much As The Rest Of Us | Comics | Scoop.it
While making the rounds for his new film, Robert Downey Jr. said that 'Guardians of the Galaxy' is 'in some ways' Marvel's best film.
the night desk's insight:

To say this guy knows success when he sees it seems to be an understatement to enormous proportions.  Robert Downey Jr. walked out of jail determined to make something more of his life, and he is a walking, talking advertisement for change leads to success if I ever saw one.  He gave high praise to 'Guardians of the Galaxy' on a press tour for his most recent movie 'The Judge.'  Now, that 'Guardians' has more than doubled the box office of 'Transfomers' (although, I think that was more about the unusually blood thirsty nature of the recent Transformer film that people recommended not seeing it than anything else) it should be guaranteed another three movies minimum.  Do you LOVE or HATE Robert Downey Jr. films?

'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Winter Finale Was Incredibly Sad

'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Winter Finale Was Incredibly Sad | Comics | Scoop.it
In one scene, the show changed everything we know about the Marvel universe.
the night desk's insight:

Yes Skye is now more than we ever imagined, and daddy dearest is more of a psycho than we originally thought, but with Tripp dead I can't seem to celebrate those who survived like Mack. Let's be honest though, this season has been a blood bath reminiscent of the last few shows of the first season. I have to wonder what the h3ll crazy Raina is, did you see the thorns coming out of her? I mean we knew she was different, but where could they be going with this recent "conversion" of her character. Do you think Skye will be able to bring Tripp back or is he gone for good? 


This is going to be the longest winter break I've ever had...how bout you?

'Gotham' Receives 6 Extra Episodes This Season

'Gotham' Receives 6 Extra Episodes This Season | Comics | Scoop.it

Although many of the Gotham fans are die hard Batman fans, this has come with a price

the night desk's insight:

Some fans cheered when they heard the extension news, while others jeered questioning quality, well I have to say YAY!!!  Even though this show was far from a favorite at first, it has truly grown on me like a fungus. I know it will inevitably take me in a distressing direction I won't wanna be, but I won't notice the misery due to the fun and excitement I had while getting there. I, like many others, was squeamish about Ivy, completely adored Cat, and charmed by the incredibly awkward Penguin.  I was surprised by the mess that is Barbara Gordon, definitely a different way to go with the matriarchal figure.  Harvey seemed like such a louse and worthless guy until Jim starting reminding him of who and what he used to be in Gotham. Which is your favorite character on 'Gotham'? (You can choose two if you can't pick just one.)

Will The 'Arrow' Step Up Before Ray Palmer Steals Felicity's Heart

Will The 'Arrow' Step Up Before Ray Palmer Steals Felicity's Heart | Comics | Scoop.it

It seems to be a race for the girl and Ollie is coming in a close second

the night desk's insight:

Last night on the 'Arrow' we met Cupid, a somewhat lethal romantic ex-cop whom mimics her idol's footsteps to draw his attention to her fan obsessed lair, all while Oliver's true love is being courted by the incredibly rich and handsome Ray Palmer right under his hood. It looks like Mr. Palmer plans to make himself a superhero to save his adopted city, but will this put him at further odds with the 'Arrow'  ...I guess we will have to wait and see. Now about Thea and her new love interest, whom I'm pretty sure is working for Thea's jealous old man, Malcolm Merlyn, could this be the man she needs or will Roy step up and make Thea a priority now that they have so much in common. Do you think Malcolm Merlyn is behind the latest edition to Thea's life, or is it just a coincidence now that Thea is reconnecting with her brother she meets someone new?

'Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Looking For The Lost City Of Atlantis

“The Writing On The Wall” episode leaves more questions than it answers about the TAHITI program, GH-325 and the mysterious blue guy

the night desk's insight:

The most recent episode of 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' answered the question of what Coulson and his looney pals were scribbling on the wall, the floor and just about everything else, but what or where the city might be was left out.  They made sure to tell you this city was around long before just about everything left today, so what could it be... well how about the lost city of Atlantis, of course.  The city we have all heard legends about, how advanced they were, how it was a paradise in the world, and most of it all that it was likely alien in origin. What city do you think the tall blue alien was desperate to find on Earth?

On this upcoming episode of 'Arrow' we get see a little bit about Felicity's past choices and her alternate image from when she was a mere hacker for fun and sport. These days she's geek chic, but it seems that her teenage years held a darker ensemble from the gothic lifestyle.  Let's face it, we all know there is so much more to our favorite 'Arrow' character Ms. Felicity Smoak than meets the eye. We will finally get to see whom her inspiration was, and what she's been hiding from the gang. Which look do you like better on Felicity... today's geek chic or yesterday's goth?

When she returned safely to the nest victorious with half of our favorite science team, I was so relieved.  I admit even though they said there was a plan, I was a little freaked out for Simmons when her undercover intentions were revealed to everyone at Hydra headquarters. It was definitely a OMG moment, and I can honestly say I have never said that before.  What did you think of Adrianne Palicki's 'Mockingbird' on last night's episode of 'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' ?

CW's new series 'The Flash' took 'Arrow' guest star, Grant Gustin turned him into a superhero, then to hammer home the connection, in case anyone missed just who he really was, 'The Arrow' makes an emotionally encouraging guest star spot.  I was truly surprised at just how amazing 'The Flash'  really was, the entire cast is incredible.  The character- a justice driven scientist turned superhero, and the actor- a very relatable, fun to watch,  underdog to root for, all things that WILL make this series incredibly successful.  What did you think about the new CW superhero series 'The Flash'?

With special guest Chris Pratt on the SNL season premiere, they pull out all the stops to show there is absolutely no stopping the Marvel Universe anytime in the foreseeable future.
