President Donald Trump, talking to a pool of reporters Tuesday, backed away from a call for stronger background check legislation, calling such measures a “slippery slope.” “The people that — a lot of the people that put me where I am, are strong believers in the Second Amendment, and I am also. And we have to be very careful about that. You know, they call it the slippery slope,” said Trump. “All of a sudden everything gets taken away, we’re not going to let that happen.” “We have very very strong background checks right now,” said Trump. A reporter had asked him to clarify his position on background checks, and reminded him that he “seemed to be on board” with stronger background checks after the shootings in Dayton and El Paso. Upon leaving Bedminster, the reporter said, Trump seemed to backtrack and said there are already strong background checks on the books, “which a lot of people read as you dialing … [Read more...] about Trump: Stronger Background Checks Are a ‘Slippery Slope’
16 minutes ago Only a few years ago, DC Entertainment had strict restrictions in place for keeping its television franchises separate from its film franchises, in order to largely eliminate the existence of multiple live-action versions of the same characters. With the company's projects being so numerous now, the urge to keep the universe's distinct is less of a distressing issue.

Some fans are hoping for … [Read more...] about Will DC’s Birds Of Prey Be The Next Big Arrow-verse Spinoff?
6 minutes ago Spoilers ahead for Episode 23 of Young Justice Season 3, called “Terminus." The death of Wally West as Kid Flash is arguably the biggest game-changer in the history of Young Justice, despite the fact that the show ended its original run in the same episode that saw him die. Not only has it been an undercurrent in the arcs of Dick Grayson and Artemis Crock in Season 3, but it has also fueled the speculation of fans ever since the Season 2 finale aired back in 2013. Everybody on Young Justice thought Wally was dead, but was that really the case? If so, did that mean dead for good? And are the latest developments in Season 3 hinting at a return sooner rather than later? How Did Wally West Die? Wally died in the Season 2 finale when it became clear that the united efforts of the speedsters were all that would be able to stop the vortex caused by the Magnetic Field Disruptor, creating a kind of tornado that had to be stopped at all cost. The Flash and Impulse … [Read more...] about Is Young Justice Bringing Back Wally West In Season 3?
