x Now that his secret vigilantism has been discovered, Arrow‘s upcoming seventh season will see Oliver Queen locked up in Slabside Maximum Security Prison, along with some of the supervillains and criminals he previously put in there. This is clearly a very dire situation for Star City’s savior to be in, and a fresh spin on the usual status quo of the long-running DC TV series. While speaking at San Diego Comic-Con last month, director James Bamford explained that the new prison setting allows for the show to drop Ollie in a completely different world and community and watch him adjust to very different circumstances to what he’s used to. And yes, it will see some familiar foes return. “We’re investigating completely different dynamics within the mythology of the show and that is within Slabside Supermax Prison. There’s a whole world, as you know, within a prison community and we’ll see how long he lasts inside there and what … [Read more...] about Arrow Season 7 Compared To If Batman Was In Prison With The Joker

Warning: Spoilers ahead for The Walking Dead– The Walking Dead actor Norman Reedus has promised plenty of “closure” when the show’s eighth season returns this week. The All Out War arc pitting Rick’s alliance against Negan’s Saviors dominated the first half of the season, with the good guys scoring first blood by luring a herd of the undead right to the door of Savior headquarters. Naturally, the remaining episodes weren’t all smooth sailing and Team Negan hit back with a vengeance by peppering Rick’s community with explosives. As if that wasn’t enough trouble for the bearded protagonist, the midseason finale revealed that Rick’s son Carl was suffering from a fatal zombie bite. In between all of the flying bullets and gushing blood, the first half of The Walking Dead season 8 set up a plethora of intriguing plot threads. Aside from the obvious question of which team will ultimately win the war, storylines currently in … [Read more...] about Walking Dead Will Have ‘Closure’ When Season 8 Returns
AMC's The Walking Dead returns for the second half of its seventh season with a plan to make viewers — and the zombie drama's central hero Rick Grimes — smile again. Following a brutal first half of the season that featured bat-swinging villain Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) whacking a number of Rick's (Andrew Lincoln) people, showrunner Scott M. Gimple tells The Hollywood Reporter that the following eight episodes are a direct response to the horrors the survivors have gone through. Indeed. The first half introduced a number of new communities — the Hilltop, overseen by coward Gregory; the Kingdom, ruled by King Ezekiel and his pet tiger, Shiva; and the all-female community of the Oceansiders — all of whom could be the missing piece to help Rick and company take down Negan and his savage group of Saviors. The second half will set up the All-Out War arc from Robert Kirkman's comic book series that serves as source material for the AMC series. And in doing just … [Read more...] about ‘Walking Dead’ Showrunner Promises a “Joyful Rebellion” to Close Season 7
[This story contains spoilers from "The First Day of the Rest of Your Life," the season seven finale of AMC's The Walking Dead as well as the comics the show is based on.] AMC's The Walking Dead closed out its seventh season Sunday with a super-sized finale that, while losing a key character, set the stage for an even bigger battle to come from creator/exec producer Robert Kirkman's comics in season eight. Signing off of the show was Sonequa Martin-Green's Sasha, with the character's death both foreshadowed this season onscreen and off given her major role on CBS All Access' Star Trek: Discovery. Season seven focused largely on Rick (Andrew Lincoln) attempting to rally support from neighboring communities the Hilltop and the Kingdom — as well as the so-called Garbage People — for war against Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and his Saviors. In a remix of Kirkman's source material, Negan winds up arriving at the Alexandria Safe Zone to confront Rick after learning the latter … [Read more...] about ‘Walking Dead’: Who Died in the Season 7 Finale?
