The Legends of Tomorrow are an elite team put together by time traveler Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill), yup he’s from the DC comics, as are the rest of the team, consisting of White Canary / Sarah Lance (Caty Lotz) from CW’s ‘Arrow,’ The Atom / Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) also from CW’s ‘Arrow,’ Captain Cold / Leonard Snart (Wentworth Miller) from CW’s ‘The Flash,’ Heat Wave / Mic Rory (Dominic Purcell) from CW’s ‘The Flash,’ Hawkgirl / Kendra Saunders (Ciara Renee) also from CW’s ‘The Flash,’ Hawkman / Carter Hall (Falk Hentschel), FIRESTORM / Professor Martin Stein (Victor Garber) & Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (Franz Drameh), also from CW’s ‘The Flash.’ Not sure why they need two fire guys and two hawk people. Why not get a Kryptonian, like Powergirl, a speedster, like Impulse, someone to deal with magic, like Dr Fate or Zantanna Zatara, and a Green Lantern, like John Stewart or Jade? Seems like that would be a much more powerful team, you know, if the fate of the world is at stake.

Quote from ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ trailer: “I’ve seen men of steel die..”-Rip Hunter (did he just say he saw the Death of Superman?).

‘Legends of Tomorrow’ premieres on the CW, on  Jan 21 2016.

Jon Snow Lives! Game of Thrones season 6 teaser poster and rumors..

js---tease-160395#JonSnowLives will be the new trending hashtag, like #GlennLives from yesterdays Walking Dead episode. There was much debate online about whether Jon Snow would actually remain dead. We saw spy images of Kit Harrington on set for season 6 of Game of Thrones and many guesses as to how and why he could still be alive. Let’s discuss those rumors now..

How is Jon Snow still alive? Yes, he could be a zombie and raised from the dead by the White Walkers after they breach the Wall with their army of the undead, using The Horn of Winter, which may also include Ice Spiders (can’t wait to see those). But if you look closely at the image, Jon Snow is wearing a bloody eye patch, which the dead don’t need. It is more likely that the Red Woman, Melisandre brought him back from the dead. In season 5 of Game of Thrones, Melisandre abandoned Stannis Baratheon, and returned to Castle Black after she realized he was not the one true king of Westeros–ooops; I half expected her to say, “My bad.” We watched Beric Dondarrion be brought back from the dead after The Hound killed him. The Red Woman worships the same Lord of Light, so it’s possible The Red Woman can bring back Jon Snow and she was nearby when Jon Snow was murdered by the disloyal Men of the Knight’s Watch. “For The Watch,” muttered, but it was this act that will bring down The Watch in Game of Thrones season 6.

Death is certainly a “loophole” that can get you out of your vows to the Knight’s Watch. What will Jon Snow do now? Let the White Walkers overrun The Wall and let all of The Knight’s Watch be killed for their treachery? Why not Jon? They deserve it. Jon Snow could rally The North, take back Winterfell and defend The Realm. Or, it could take a while, and Jon Snow could find his own path, long enough for Brandon Stark to figure how to work the Weirwood Tree magic (the Old Magic before The First Men came to Westeros and forced the Children of the Forest to flee to the North), and long enough for Khaleesi to invade, take back the Iron Throne and use dragons to fight the White Walkers.

There is a Reddit rumor that confirmed Jon Snow’s resurrection, but also went on to say who Jon’s mother is and it’s not who you think it is. There is a strong possibility that Lyanna Stark is Jon Snow’s mother. Lyanna Stark, Ned Stark’s younger sister, was to be married to Robert Baratheon, when Rhaegar Targaryen kidnapped her, which sparked Robert Baratheon’s rebellion, overthrowing the Targaryens and their reign of terror. This much we know, but, according to Reddit, there is much more to the story, with clues like Jon Snow’s name day not listed in the Game of Thrones character directory and many other clues pieced together. Reddit goes on to say that Lyanna had twins, Meera Reed is Jon Snow’s twin sister and that Ned Stark separated the twins at birth, giving Meera (also missing a name day date, but year 283AC, same as Jon Snow) to his close friend Howland Reed of Greywater Watch, so no one would suspect their true parents. Howland Reed and Ned Stark were the only survivors to make it to the Targaryen Tower of Joy to rescue Lyanna Stark during the Rebellion. It was there that they witnessed Lyanna Stark giving birth to twins. Yes, season 6 of Game of Thrones will have flashbacks depicting this very scene (according to ‘Watchers on the Wall’). Speaking of.. you’re thinking Eddard “Ned” Stark got busy with his own sister, right? Wrong. Ned Stark is not actually Jon Snow’s (and Meera’s) father, it’s Rhaegar Targaryen. Remember all those touching scenes with Jon Snow and Maester Aemon?  And how Measter Aemon confided in Jon that he was actually Aemon Targaryen? Well, there was a reason for that, one that will be further explained in season 6. Maester Aemon knew, but never told Jon Snow. Maester Aemon almost spilled the beans, when he delirious before his death, those ramblings are actually crucial to the story. Maester Aemon himself hid in the Knight’s Watch from Robert Baratheon’s regime. If anyone found out that there were two Targaryen children still alive, they would immediately be killed. Ned Stark tried to prevent that, even to the point of letting his wife, (and all of Westeros), believe he was unfaithful, which was totally out of character for Ned. When Robert Baratheon, in season 1, found out that the two Targaryen children, Daenerys & Viserys, were still alive, (and “commanding” a Dothraki army), he demanded they be killed, something Ned Stark refused to do, even giving up the Hand of the King title over it.

The saga of Westeros, the Game of Thrones, is based on the book series by George R. R. Martin, called “The Song of Fire and Ice.” Perhaps it is not just a tale of Dragons and White Walkers, but a tale of Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow. Draw your sword of fire Jon Snow, that only one who has died can wield. Fight for Westeros, take back Winterfell from the Boltons, and fight along side your cousin, Mother of Dragons, rightful ruler of the Iron Throne, and defeat the White Walkers, the Lannisters, Lord Baelish, fight for The Realm and for all those who oppose what is best for the people of Westeros.

‘Jessica Jones’ Netflix / Marvel’s next great thing. Just watch it.

Jessica_Jones copy.pngJessica Jones, Marvel superhero, based in Hell’s KItchen, New York. I’ve waited to write this because I wanted everyone to watch it first. Don’t worry, this post contains no major spoilers. All this weekend, everyone has asked me, what I loved about Jessica Jones, was it as good or better than Netflix Marvel Daredevil? or even, should I watch it? Um, yes, WATCH IT! It is amazing. It is different than Daredevil, not another chapter of the Marvel Universe; it is unique and tells a very different story, even the lighting and camera angles are different to distinguish Jessica Jones as its own story. What I love most about Jessica Jones is the characters. Every character on Jessica Jones, all 13 episodes, is simply amazing, the character development was so thorough, I feel like I know these people. Jessica Jones brought real characters to the Netflix small screen. All of them had their flaws, their weaknesses and their strengths. Some, like Jessica Jones, had the ability to rise above and keep going, even when there was very little hope.

_1442511657[may contain spoilers here]: The villain, Kilgrave, was also flawed. In the beginning of the ‘Jessica Jones’ series, Kilgrave was this unstoppable force, who could do anything and was untouchable. But as the series progresses, more is revealed about Kilgrave, his personal nature and things/events [not going to say exactly which, just watch the ‘Jessica Jones’ series] that make you sympathize for him. You really get to understand Kilgrave and his motivations, and late in the series, you get to watch his obsession overcome him and watch him begin to unravel.

I have never watched such great writing with characters and story in any superhero movie or tv series as I have with ‘Jessica Jones.’ It is my hope that this is the future of story telling, no more episodic, weekly 45min shorts, or even an hour and a half 3 act retelling of a comic series. There is such a rich history of superheroes in comic books, going back 14 years, (for Jessica Jones), even 75 years for some superheroes. Watching a few episodes on regular television or even a movie just isn’t enough to understand the characters. Marvel has once again mastered superhero story telling on the Netflix platform.

The future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe on Netflix will include a ‘Luke Cage’ series, ‘Iron Fist’ (yes, ‘Iron Fist’ is back and will be an original Netflix series), along with season 2 of ‘Daredevil,’ (featuring Punisher and Elektra) coming February 2016, and quite possibly a ‘Defenders’ series, with Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Daredevil and Iron Fist. We will definitely see a team up of these four characters on one or more the ongoing Netflix series, but we may also see an additional series of the ‘Defenders.’ Also, Marvel has ordered a ‘Moon Knight’ series from Netflix, premiering 2017.

‘Jessica Jones,’ just watch it.

‘Gravity Falls’ will be ending soon :(

Gravity-FallsEveryone’s favorite twins, Dipper & Mable, will finally meet their match. Not Bill, but the end of summer. Alex Hirsch, the creator of Gravity Falls, made a statement yesterday that the end of season 2 will be the end of the series. Alex Hirsch stated that it was a creative decision, not a network or Disney decision. Hirsch wanted to tell a complete story, with characters that he loved, and not have Gravity Falls drag on for many seasons without any story to tell.

 

MABEL, DIPPER

Mable & Dipper

Gravity Falls is clearly the most adorable show on television and possibly the most loved. Unfortunately, for us, the fans, the end of season 2 will be the end of the series. There are just two episodes left in season 2, and the fate of Gravity Falls and Weirdmageddon are in the hands of our favorite twin duo, Dipper & Mable, with the help of Grunkle Stan, Grunkle Ford, Seus, or maybe it’s ‘Sus, Wendy, Blendin Blandin and the residents and mystical creatures of Gravity Falls, of course. With an ending upon us, adversary Bill Cypher could actually do some permanent damage.

Gravity Falls made me fall in love with cartoons again, especially the characters. It is so sad to see these characters go. They will forever be in my heart, thank you Alex Hirsch.

NEW Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer! (International Trailer)

The new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer is all about Rey, and has been since called, “The Rey Trailer.” In this installment of the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, we learn more about Rey and her home world of Jakku. We get to hear BB-8, and that BB-8 makes cute totally unique droid sounds. Han Solo’s quote to Rey, was really about The Force, Rey: “There were stories about what happened,” Han Solo: “The Force, it’s true, all of it.”. Leia’s quote is really an inspirational speech, most likely to the (Rebel) troops who have become overwhelmed, but given a fighting chance against the new First Order (Empire).

Leia

“Hope is not lost today, it is found.”

That quote can be used for a lot of things, like the fact that theatres across America now have more show times for ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ so you can see it on opening day, Dec 18 2018, or the day before, the “midnight” showing at 8pm.
