Unboxings: LOOTCRATE Exclusive WonderCon 2016 Crate Unboxing

I’ve been attending WonderCon 2016 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, and I happened to stop by the Loot Crate booth to get some goodies! This is their exclusive WonderCon 2016 edition of Loot Crate that you can only get at WonderCon. I actually hadn’t really thought about it, but I was wearing the new DareDevil/Punisher beanie that came in their March 2016 “Versus” themed crate. I do like DareDevil, but there is something about the Punisher that made be choose his side! Anyway, one of the girls at the booth recognized it of course and told me a lot of people were choosing the Punisher side too.  Check out what I got in the box below!

Fan Film Friday: ‘Iris’ (The Flash Fan Film)

I have been obsessed with The CW’s The Flash since the very first episode.

However, I always felt that Candice Patton‘s Iris and Grant Gustin‘s Barry were the most forced wannabe couple on any show ever (and I suffered through Arrow‘s Laurel/Oliver pairing – yuck). I don’t blame the actors (who are both insanely talented), it’s just that independently, their characters are more interesting on their own than in a boring, overdone, unrequited love/friend zone sub-plot.

Still, I do know it’s canon for the two to have a long and interesting relationship. So, I decided to see if a fan film could tell their story better. I went with a short by Second Line Studios called IrisWas it more exciting than other renditions of the Fastest Man Alive? Or could the short not end fast enough? Most importantly, do I recommend the fan film to you, GeekGirl World?

Find out in my video below:

Watch Iris and let us know what you think, GeekGirl World!

Want more Fan Film Friday fun? Tune in to past reviews, including one for another Flash-themed fan film called The Bolt.

Catch The Flash (if you can) when it returns to The CW on January 19 at 8/7c!

SDCC Day 1 Recap!

Hunger Games cast bids their farewell to the franchise

The Hunger Games franchise is coming to an end with Mockingjay Pt. 2, and sadly so are the Comic-Con appearances.

The cast and producers were at the convention for their panel, eagerly answering questions from fans in the audience.

Producer Nina Jacobson has some choice words for their end of the franhise. “The end is emotional for all of us,” Jacobson said. “We want to deliver the emotion and the politics of it, all the things that [author] Suzanne [Collins] wanted to say. But we don’t want to say good bye to each other. We all wish there were seven or eight books, not just three. It’s a very emotional conclusion. It’s emotional for us, but it will be emotional for the fans.”

One fan asked Jennifer Lawrence what is similar about her and her famous character, Katniss Everdeen, to which she responded in a very candid fashion “Nothing about us is similar. She’s brave and I’m an actress.”

Check out a few clips from the panel below! More are available on the franchise’s official Instagram page.

Stand with the Mockingjay! #SDCC welcomes #JenniferLawrence! #MockingjaySDCC

William Shatner addresses Star Trek 3 rumors

Will William Shatner appear in Star Trek 3? The actor was recently asked this question by a fan at Comic-Con, but according to Shatner our guess is as good as his!

The Star Trek alum told the audience a story about how he was contacted by J.J. Abrams way back in 2008 in regards to secretly appearing in his 2009 adaptation. This news was leaked by a reporter at an airport, who Shatner swears he didn’t tell. The incident, according to Shatner, seemed have rubbed Abrams the wrong way.

We didn’t get a solid yes or no from Shatner, and considering how Abrams was apparently interested in having him appear (at least at one point in time), his appearance in Star Trek 3 is still a very real possibility!

Revamped Flash costume revealed

Warner Bros. TV brought an entire showcase of hero costumes to Comic-Con this year, but the Flash costume in particular seemed a little different. Season one’s Flash has a costume with a red and gold emblem on the chest, but the costume shown at Comic-Con sports a white and gold emblem. What does this mean, exactly? Well, the most obvious answer is that the Flash’s costume will get a minor face lift for season 2!

Batman v Superman cast will hit the con floor for a surprise autograph session

Well, I guess it’s not a surprise anymore! Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill will be part of the Warner Bros. panel Saturday at Hall H, but Deadline is reporting that they’ll also be heading over to the DC Entertainment booth to sign autographs while they’re in town.

But as to when they’ll show up, that’s not for sure. They could either show up Friday night or on July 11 after their Hall H appearance. Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) will possibly show up as well, but that hasn’t been confirmed.

Transformers animated series coming to Machinima

Hasbro has partnered with the online gamer and video platform Machinima to produce a new animated series based on its Transformers: Combiner Wars line, The Hollywood Reporter exclusively reports.

Combiner Wars has groups of Transformers interlock to form one giant robot, known as a Combiner. Among the new robots are Superion and Menasor. They held the fate of the Transformers’ home world, Cybertron, in their hands.

Teen Wolf renewed for season 6

MTV announced today at Comic-Con that Teen Wolf will be renewed for season 6. A mid season trailer was also released during the event today.

Frank Miller’s Dark Knight III to Feature Additional 16-Page Mini-Comics

We don’t know much about the plot of  The Dark Knight III: The Master Race (which will launch this fall) but we do know one thing to expect: more! DC Entertainment has confirmed that in addition to the core 32-page comic book, each issue of Frank Miller’s eight-issue series will include an additional 16-page mini-comic illustrated by a variety of guest artists.

Halle Berry confirms that she would be up for a Storm standalone movie

Wolverine got his own, so why not Storm? When the actress was asked if she would be down for a Storm movie away from the X-Men franchise, she responded by saying “absolutely.” This doesn’t mean one is in the works, but with the help of her fans it very well could be. She urged her fans to speak up and spread the word!
