A Guardians of the Galaxy 2 teaser was posted earlier this week, and it seems like fans are pretty damn excited.

IGN UK Podcast #354: The One Where No One Mentions Nintendo Switch or Red Dead - Fri, 10/21/2016 - 09:49

Monday seems a very long time ago now. Nintendo Switch had a different name, we were only guessing that Red Dead 2 existed, and IGN LA's Terri Schwartz chose to spend some of her holidays in our office for no discernible reason and we wanted to record a podcast with her.

Basically, all of this is an excuse for why this four day-old episode seems very out-of-date. Forget all that brand new stuff, let's talk about The Crystal Maze and Miles Teller's gusset, then play Keyword Countdown. Oh, and one of you makes us look really clever with your feedback - thanks for that.

It's perhaps no surprise that Joss Whedon wants to make a Star Wars film - I mean, unless you're Steven Spielberg, who wouldn't - but the man behind Buffy, Firefly and the Avengers movies has a very specific wish for any potential jaunt to a galaxy far, far away.

"I mean, it’s a fun thing to do, to put yourself in the service of something if you think you can add an interpretation", Whedon explains to Complex. "It’s no different than any other storytelling

Do I want to make a Star Wars movie? Yeah.

Selma Director Helped Shape a Duel in Force Awakens - Fri, 10/21/2016 - 00:17

In a new clip from the audio commentary for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, director J.J. Abrams discusses how Ava DuVernay (Selma) helped shape a moment in the film’s climactic fight between Rey and Kylo Ren.

Abram’s describes how he showed "an early cut to

friend Ava DuVernay and she had a bunch of great suggestions. One of them was that she really wanted to see Daisy

in her attack on

Ren…have one really cool moment."

Abrams later identifies the specific shot: a close-up on Rey with the lightsaber in both hands over her head as she goes in for a final attack. Abrams points out, "

little thing, but it really connects you to her intensity."

J.J. Abrams Discusses Force Awakens Deleted Scene - Thu, 10/20/2016 - 23:35

In a newly-released excerpt from the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens Blu-ray audio commentary, director J.J. Abrams describes a brief sequence that was ultimately cut from the film.

Warning: Minor spoilers for Star Wars : The Force Awakens below.

During her vision in Maz Kanata’s castle upon grabbing the lightsaber, Rey almost saw Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader fighting on Bespin.

Describing what Abrams called "the Force-back," he mentions, "There were many iterations of this. In one, from

Cloud City corridor she looked down and saw Vader fighting Luke, which we ended up cutting."

Abrams then proceeds to describe the rest of the sequences within the vision as "a more personal story. Something that she couldn’t comprehend that was overwhelming to her. Frightening to her. That was taking her through all these elemental experiences," before hearing her own cries as a child and the voice of Obi-Wan Kenobi calling out her name.

Legends of Tomorrow: "Justice Society of America" Review - Thu, 10/20/2016 - 21:52

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below.

After two episodes, it seems safe to say that Legends of Tomorrow is in a stronger place this season. The show has quickly become lighter, funnier, more adventurous and just all-around more entertaining. “The Justice Society of America” delivered pretty much everything you’d want out a team-up from two different generations of super-teams.

It’s almost funny to think that the Arrow-verse used to be a relatively grounded place when it first started life back in 2012. As this episode proved, there were costumed metahumans on the scene long before Oliver Queen started shooting criminals full of arrows. There was even an honest-to-goodness Justice Society fighting the good fight back in World War II. This week marked the return of Patrick J. Adams’ Rex Tyler, and this time he brought his entire team with him - Vixen (The Originals’ Maisie Richardson-Sellers), Commander Steel (iZombie’s Matthew MacCaull), Obsidian (Dead of Summer’s Dan Payne), Doctor Mid-Nite (Man of Steel’s Kwesi Ameyaw) and Stargirl (If I Stay’s Sarah Grey).
