'Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice'

So apparently Ben Affleck's Batman is in his 50's. I think I've heard this rumor before, but io9 gets a little more detail on Batman's past. There's also a video showing Batman rescuing a little girl from a collapsing Wayne Enterprises. Also, Wonder Woman has been active for quite a while in this film, but her activities have been secret. Check it out


Doctor Who

An upcoming episode written by Peter Harness was described by Stephen Moffat this way:
For the first time since 1984, the Doctor Who production team is heading to Lanzarote. The Doctor is returning to the scene of an old adventure - but there have been sinister changes since his last visit.
As bluehinter pointed out on Observation Deck, the last episode in question was "Planet of Fire," when Lanzarote played both itself and the volcanic planet Sarn. It's more likely that the production is returning to Sarn, where the Doctor tangeled with the Master. And since we'veheard from Sylvester McCoy that there will be a new, "very scary," Master coming, this could be the episode re-introducing the character.
The episode is also going to guest-star Hermione Norris (The Crimson Field), with Moffat saying: "It's a testament to the quality of Peter Harness's intense and emotional script, that we've been able to attract an actress of the brilliance of Hermione Norris." [Blogtor Who]
Speaking of the new season, Matt Smith's had a preview of what's coming, and he's impressed, saying:
I rang Steven Moffat up the other day and found out everything about the new series. It sounds really good! I was really jealous actually.
. . . [Capaldi] will be different, and it will be a different show and it will be a new show and that's what Doctor Who is about, and I've got to let it go. And the great thing about it is everyone has their own Doctor. So, hopefully, there's a few eight or nine-year-olds out there who I've claimed.
The Radio Times has a source saying nothing but good things about Capaldi and his chemistry with Jenna Coleman:
He is the oldest Doctor, and there is a sense he is more distanced from his assistant, more of a mystery.
He is perhaps less a mate, and someone she looks up to. She has to try and gauge him – but dramatically it's very satisfying and onscreen they work very well together.
There is a real buzz about this Doctor. And of course the monsters are great.

Timothy Busfield will play recurring character Benjamin Franklin, starting in the second episode of the season. Turns out Ichabod was Franklin's apprentice. Executive producer Mark Goffman said this about season 2:
Last season, we created this history between Ichabod and George Washington that talked about this secret war that was part of the American Revolution. This season, we're continuing that and expanding on it with other characters. Benjamin Franklin is great because we are all familiar with so many of his contributions and now we get to pull back the veil a bit. This man founded the printing press and was responsible for so many [innovations] and now we find out he's involved in this secret war and that Crane had a relationship with him. I've read several biographies of Franklin and we're teeing off on some of his precociousness and eccentricities.

Here are some great season 4 spoilers from 'The Walking Dead':
  • Bob gets bit?
  • Maggie's group gets separated again and reunites?
  • Beth gets kidnapped? I assume by the hunters.
  • Darryl meets up with a new group.
  • Glenn finds the Terminus sign. I don't know where all of these signs were before and why this is the first time they've seen them, but ok whatever.

'Game of Thrones' Season 4 spoilers from Entertainment Tonight.


11/08/13
The BBC has released short interviews with Matt Smith, David Tennant, Jenna Coleman and Joanna Page. Here's Moffat on why he chose to bring back the Zygons:
The Zygons without question are a design classic. They are superb; brilliant from the voice, to the appearance. Essentially we’ve resurrected exactly the same Zygon as Tom Baker fought back in the 70s. They are beautiful, and it’ll show that the special looks forward to the future of Doctor Who and also celebrates the legend.
Matt Smith described a scene with the two Doctors comparing screwdrivers (not a euphemism):
[W]e’re not competitive, I mean there’s a funny bit in the script between the 10th and 11th Doctors comparing Sonics, so there’s competitiveness in the story, but not off screen. We just had a laugh and it was exciting to see David back in the pin striped suit and the Converse. John only has to move his eyes and he flaws you and Billie’s, Billie. I adore Billie, so we had a great time.
And here's Jenna Coleman talking about the interaction between Smith, Tennant, and John Hurt and the stunt work in the special:
So not only do we have David back, we also have John Hurt starring as the Doctor, which is massively exciting. And again the three of them complement each other totally, and it utterly works. It’s great to see all of them together.

Q: There are some big stunts in this episode. What was it like filming in the TARDIS dangling from a crane in front of crowds in Trafalgar Square?

It’s one of the major stunts that we did and one of the big opening sequences at the beginning of the episode. We actually filmed it in a couple of stages including at St. Athens airfield where me and Matt were in the TARDIS being swung from side to side. Then in the second half, we were actually lowered down into Trafalgar Square. I think it will be quite an iconic image, it certainly felt like that on the day. Although I didn’t get to the do the really high stunt in Trafalgar Square, which I was devastated about and was kind of stood around begging people to go up, but I got to do the end of it.
Joanna Page described the romantic relationship between Queen Elizabeth and the Tenth Doctor:
Filming the romantic scenes were quite difficult because my first day was on top of a mountain in Neath. It was absolutely freezing, it was blowing a gale and David, the Tenth Doctor and I, are having a picnic. So I’m lying across him and he probably couldn’t breathe, because I’ve just got this massive costume on, and he’s feeding me grapes as I’m just desperately shivering. You’ve got to try and play it romantic and relaxed, when actually you’re freezing cold. I think our lips were turning blue and I stopped feeling my hands. The next day, because it had been so cold with the wind my hands were bright red and all blistered because they were so chapped. So everyone is probably jealous, thinking she gets to kiss the Tenth Doctor and it’s all romantic, but it’s not; my lips were numb and my hands were chapped.

Rick will likely lose a hand just like in the comics, supposedly via the Governor. Haven't we had enough of the Governor? The worst aspect of Season 3 was that the Governor survived? The Governor's storyline should not be a two season story arc. Having Rick lose a hand may hinder show. This was my least favorite aspect in the comics. Considering the required makeup and possible CGI, I think it's a bad idea for Rick to lose a hand.

Ok, I've just seen 'The Walking Dead' season finale and I have to say I'm extremely disappointed. The Governor lived to fight another day, which I assume will be next season. Our rag tag crew is STILL at the depressing prison. I don't know if I can take another season at the prison. The best part of the season finale was Andrea's demise. I didn't hate Andrea, but I understood why some did. The writers made this character as irritating as possible. At some point, her character had run it's course so it was time for her character to exit. After all, there were only so many sociopaths she could fall in love with.

Then there's the Governor's attack on the prison. The Governor's attack on the prison in the graphic novels was terrifying, action-packed, and incredible. The Governor's attack on the prison in the tv series was anti-climatic at best. The whole season has been building up to this attack and it lasted about two minutes. It wasn't even a good two minutes. I don't mind that the series is taking "lots" of poetic license with the graphic novels. After all we're watching the show because we want it to be different, but these writers can no longer properly write for this show. The first half of season 3 was great. I read one review that 'The Walking Dead' returned from summer vacation, "tan and terrific" and it truly did. The second half of season 3 has been dismal. The writing has been disjointed and sloppy. I hope the show can come back from this low point, but I'm not so sure.

Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes in 'The Walking Dead'
No more Crazy Rick! This one is for 'The Walking Dead' fans out there. Like many I have read both the graphic novels and have watched the show. Check out the review of the latest episode. Needless to say, Rick goes flipping nuts at the end when he sees his wife Laurie's ghost.

This never happened in the novels, which is not to say that the show should follow the novels exclusively. However, there are some fundamental personality traits that the show should adhere to. Yes, Sheriff Rick has been through a lot. He's lost most of the people who have been precious to him, has had to lead a difficult group of people, deal with the destruction of civilization, and zombies. So yes, a nervous breakdown may be in order, but not as portrayed in this week's episode.

Rick had some trouble when his wife died and he thought she was calling him on the phone, but the show took it a step further. Now Rick is seeing things, shoving his gun in people's faces, screaming at thin air, and acting like a hot mess. This is not the Rick of the novels. In the novels Rick always retained his moral core and dignity. He was the leader and he couldn't afford to fall to pieces. Lastly, he always gave people the benefit of the doubt before condemning them, despite the horror of his experiences.

So no, I don't like what the show is doing to this character. Rick is and has always been the voice of reason. So I hope they shut down crazy town and bring back the backbone of the show. If 'The Walking Dead' continues down this path it won't go well.

Huge spoilers on 'The Walking Dead' this week. I can't believe that Lori went out that way. In the graphic novels, both Lori and the baby died when their group got into a confrontation with the Governor, but the series took her death in a different direction. I'm not sure how I feel about Lori enduring a c-section with no anesthesia, bleeding to death, and then Carl putting a bullet in her. That scene was heartbreaking. I'm sure that's why they did it.

As for T-Dog, I alwasys considered him dead-man walking. They hardly ever gave the actor any lines and he wasn't a named character in the graphic novels. I'm surprised he lasted three seasons.

Found this great blurb on Blastr, who got their info from Entertainment Weekly.

"Another one bites the dust. And another one, gone. For Walking Dead fans, the classic Queen song is becoming a familiar refrain, as we see time and time again how dangerous the post-apocalypse can be. So why did Walking Dead producer Robert Kirkman believe these last few deaths were necessary? Spoilers ahead!

Viewers got a double dose of death Sunday night, with both Lori Grimes (Sarah Wayne Callies) and T-Dog (IronE Singleton) bidding the world farewell. Turns out the safety of the prison's walls ain't so safe.

When a rogue prisoner busts open the gate and lets a ton of walkers in, all hell breaks loose, and Lori has to go into labor in hiding. It doesn't go well, and she sacrifices herself in a heart-wrenching scene to save her baby, saying goodbye to Carl (Chandler Riggs) before the poor kid has to put a bullet in his mom's skull.

According to Kirkman, the story of Lori's death is more about those she leaves behind, and it all comes back to finding ways to push Rick (Andrew Lincoln) closer and closer to the edge.

He told Entertainment Weekly:

"Well, like with any death on Walking Dead, it's all about sitting down and figuring out what gives us the best story and what realistically portrays that world. I've always said that people are going to die -- that's just how we're telling the story -- and to not have people dying left and right would just be fake to me.

We didn't think we could get through that prison riot-with-zombies kind of thing without losing a few characters. So, when we sat down to figure out who was going to go [we thought about] the things that Lori's death does to Carl and Rick but also to Maggie and other characters. It's really important that we focus on that kind of stuff and I think that death gives us the most story coming out of it. So, that's what we did!

...The Walking Dead really is us in the writers room sitting around trying to make Rick Grimes' life as unbearable as possible."

Sure, Lori may have gotten the most dramatic death scene, but T-Dog got to go out a hero after getting bitten trying to lock the gate. He secures Carol's escape (or did he?) by sacrificing himself and getting devoured by a contingent of walkers.

Kirkman said T-Dog's death provided a conduit to show there is still some semblance of humanity and sacrifice, as he throws himself to the horde in an effort to save a friend:

"Well, again, we're just trying to portray this world realistically. I think T-Dog really stepped up this season and was extremely heroic and we really wanted him to go out with a hero's death. The fact that he knew that he was dead but still tried to do whatever he could to hopefully save Carol - although it is pretty ambiguous as to what exactly happened to her. But, yeah, we wanted to show someone really just making a sacrifice and doing whatever he could to protect someone."

What did you think of last night's explosive episode? Were you expecting that much carnage? Who will you miss the most?

Yes, I know it's been a while. What can I say, 'Prometheus' was crazy. Ok, so the latest spoilerific spoiler comes 'Game of Thrones.' Check out this latest pic from the set and the backstory behind it. It looks like we will be seeing more of the Kingslayer and Lady/Knight Brienne.

After viewing 'Prometheus,' I had a million questions. This doesn't surprise me as one of the writers (Damon Lindelof) also wrote for the series 'Lost.' Listed below are some of the questions I had and how I've answered them. Some of these unanswered questions were purposeful on the part of the filmmakers. Some of these unanswered questions were loose ends that should have been tied up.

The first two acts of 'Prometheus' are brilliant. However, the third act failed to wrap up loose ends and give the viewer a satisfying conclusion. This left me attempting to find the answers to my questions. This is too much work for the average viewer, so in my opinion, the writers did not effectively do their jobs. The lack of a closure would have been fine, but it should at least make sense. An extra 15 minutes of footage would have helped. Perhaps the film will be released with a director's cut?

Space Jockey in the 'Alien' franchise

In the original 'Alien' film, the crew of the commercial towing spaceship Nostromo landed on an uncharted barren planet (LV-426) after receiving a transmission of unknown origin (perhaps a distress call). The crew was automatically awakened from stasis and ordered to investigate the surface of the planet. When investigating the planet, the crew of the Nostromo came across something spectacular, a crashed spaceship with a large, deceased, fossilized pilot with elephant-like features. The pilot also had it's chest burst open, which we now know is evidence of an alien facehugger. The pilot's cargo consisted of thousands of facehugger eggs. One of these facehuggers attached itself and killed a member of the crew, Kane (John Hurt). The mysterious fossilized pilot came to be known as the "Space Jockey."
The Space Jockey in 'Alien' 1979.
Space Jockey in 'Prometheus'

In 'Prometheus' the "Space Jockeys" are identified as "Engineers." Their elephant-like features are actually part of their spacesuits and not indicative of their anatomy. The Engineers are an advanced race of humans who are responsible for the creation of humans on earth and have visited earth multiple times. It's assumed that the Engineers first visited earth millions of years ago prior to human evolution.
'Prometheus' opening scene
In Prometheus' opening scene, a lone, cloaked engineer has just been dropped off on an ancient earth. He's near a beautiful waterfall, as he watches his fellow engineers fly away in their spaceship. He opens a metal tin, which contains a poison of some sort. The Engineer commits suicide by drinking this concoction and his cells start to deteriorate at a rapid rate. He disintegrates and falls into the waterfall. Most of his DNA is enveloped by the poison, but a single DNA strand is undamaged and floats away in the water. The assumption is that the single DNA strand is then ingested by a fish and eventually evolves into modern humans.

So besides being a beautiful infomercial for 'Ancient Aliens,' why did the Engineers/Space Jockeys come to earth to create humans?

Some theories suggest that the Engineer sacrificed himself to create life. The Engineers go to sustainable planets and sacrifice one of their numbers to create life on that planet for their own secretive reasons. This creation takes millions of years, but heck they've got the time.

In my opinion, this theory doesn't make sense. It doesn't mean that wasn't the writer's intention. Writers don't always make sense. It would make more sense if the creation event was unintentional. The liquid the engineer drank appeared to disintegrate his DNA at a rapid pace, leaving only one healthy strand of DNA (as showed in the film). Surely if the Engineers intended to create life they would have used a more effective method of creation?

The lone Engineer was placed on earth as a punishment. He was marooned on a planet that could sustain his life and given a choice to either remain on the lonely planet (earth) or commit suicide. He chose the latter. It was by chance that his DNA happened to go into the water and create life.
Space Jockey/Engineer in 'Prometheus'
Why did the Engineers visit earth periodically throughout the ages?

Curiosity. Perhaps they went back to earth to punish someone else. When they did, they found a species similar to themselves. They were curious and continued to visit earth throughout the ages. Their oldest recorded visit goes back 35,000 years.

Why did the Engineers give humans a star map to their location?

Some of the Engineers may have been fond of earth humans and stayed with earth humans throughout history. Perhaps the writers were relying on the 'Ancient Alien's' television series, which theorizes that the biblical "Nephilim" (half-angel/half-human) giants who mated with human women were in fact Engineers. This historical interaction should have been explored in the film. I think it was a mistake not to include one or two scenes about this theory.

Another theory is that the Engineers wanted the earth humans as potential allies. If earth humans were identical to the Engineers then space travel may have been inevitable.

Either way the Engineers gave the earth humans a star map to one of their military installations. This may have been a safeguard. If/when earth humans mastered space travel and visited their ancestors in the stars, they would have been greeted by the Engineer's military. However, this also should have been more thoroughly explained.
Star maps in 'Prometheus'
If the Engineers created humans (accidental or on purpose) why did they plan to kill humans with biological weapons? And why did the Engineer kill Weyland and attempt to kill Shaw?

The Engineer's reaction to his human descendants, may be as simple as David's response to Shaw: "who doesn't want to kill their father?" The Engineers may have been afraid that their human descendants would one day become a threat. Perhaps the Engineers were already engaged in an intra-species interstellar war and didn't want another.

The Engineer on LV-223 likely believed the crew of the Prometheus to be hostile, as one of Weyland's security guards hit Shaw in the stomach as she tried to question the Engineer. Also, they were uninvited strangers on a military base.

Did the Engineers want to destroy earth humans because humanity disappointed them?

I do not believe that the Engineers hostility towards their progeny was based on moral reasons. Shaw carbon dated the Engineer's remains to be from 2,000 years ago. This would mean that the Engineers had decided to kill the earth humans well before earth's industrial revolution or earth's travel to the moon in 1969. The most advanced technology 2,000 years ago was Roman (aqueducts, Colosseum, etc.)

Some have theorized that religion played a role in the Engineer's decision to eliminate humanity. That doesn't make sense as religion has been around in some shape or form long before 2,000 years ago.
Head statue in 'Prometheus'
If the Engineers never intentionally meant to create life, then why would they care about life on earth?

The short answer is that they wouldn't. They may have been curious about their earth descendants, but that was the extent of their emotional attachment.

My theory is that the Engineers may have been engaged in an inter-stellar war with others of their own kind or other similar species. They had mastered biological warfare and wanted test subjects. The Engineers may have decided to use their biological weapons on people similar to themselves (i.e. their descendants on earth). Also, in their minds, earth humans may have been expendable.

Unfortunately there are multiple real-life examples of people using other people as guinea pigs. There have been both large scale and small scale examples of biological warfare/experimentation throughout human history. If these advanced humans are anything like humans on earth, then this theory may not be far-fetched.

This may also explain why in 2,000 years no additional engineers checked on the Engineers on LV-223 or tried to carry out their destructive plans. Perhaps this facility was so secret that very few of the Engineers knew about it. Perhaps the people the Engineers were trying to protect went extinct due to warfare 2,000 years ago.

What is the connection between the Space Jockey in 'Alien' and the Space Jockey in Prometheus?

The Space Jockey from 'Alien' crash landed on a completely different planet (LV-426). 'Prometheus' takes place on LV-223. The Space Jockey in 'Alien' had a cargo full of alien eggs and not the black fluid seen in 'Prometheus.' Perhaps the Space Jockey in 'Alien' was delivering cargo to another location for another reason. Clearly the Engineers utilize the alien creatures as a weapon, which is exactly what the Weyland Corporation has tried to do in all of the 'Alien' films. Also, there is a slight difference in their armor so the two different space jockeys may have lived centuries apart. The Engineers in 'Prometheus' may have learned to liquefy the alien species for easier transport.
Space Jockey/Engineer in 'Prometheus'
Why was the Engineer's ship piloted by a flute-like device, in addition to buttons?

This made no sense. I didn't get that. Why would an advanced race create a ship that required you to play a flute? The only thing I can think of is that the Engineers added this as an extra security feature, were the ship to fall into the wrong hands.

Why did the Engineer's ship show images and actions of the doomed engineers?

David hit some buttons. It's safe to assume that he initiated some form of ship's log.

Charlie (Logan Marshall-Green)
Peter Weyland (Guy Pearce)
Fifield (Sean Harris)
Millburn (Rafe Spall)
Charlie (Logan Marshall-Green), Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace), David (Michael Fassbender)
Why did David infect Charlie?

David is an android, which means that he's subject to some form of programming. At the end of the film we become aware of his true motives. Despite being an android, David is also emotional. He experiences feelings of wonder, curiosity, loyalty (to Peter Weyland), and vengeance.

Logan Marshall-Green (Charlie) and Michael Fassbender (David)
Charlie was not particularly nice to David and often spoke down to him. Also, David seemed to have formed a connection with Shaw, Charlie's girlfriend. In the film, David is shown viewing Shaw's dreams while she was in stasis. David also went out of his way to save her when she was in danger. David may have infected Charlie out of vengeance, jealousy, curiosity, or perhaps all three.

David (Michael Fassbender) in 'Prometheus.'
A more sinister explanation is that given Charlie and Shaw's relationship, David may have been curious about what would happen if an infected Charlie had intercourse with Shaw. When Shaw became impregnated with an alien, David and the other Weyland employees tried to keep the alien safe and put Shaw back in stasis. In previous films, as well as in this one, the Weyland Corporation was clearly interested in acquiring one of these aliens for study. Perhaps Shaw's alien pregnancy was intentional, however, I don't know how David could have anticipated the result.

Why was the automated surgery machine calibrated to a man if it was in Meredith Vicker's quarters?

The automated surgery machine was likely for the aging Peter Weyland, who was secretly in stasis on board Prometheus.
Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) in the automated surgery machine.
Where were the other crew members when Elizabeth Shaw went into the automated surgery machine to remove the alien baby?

The other crew members were likely still dealing with the effects of Fifield's attack. Fifield was infected and became violent.
Geologist Fifield (Sean Harris)
Why didn't the other crew members know about Shaw's pregnancy?

David and a select few seemed to be the only ones aware of Shaw's alien pregnancy.
Shaw after surgery.
Why didn't Shaw tell Janek or the others about her ordeal?

In my opinion this was lazy writing. After Shaw experiences such a terrible ordeal, there should have been at least one scene acknowledging this occurrence. There isn't. That didn't make sense to me. The woman just gave herself a cesarean section and everyone just cheerfully goes off to the ruins to meet the Engineer in stasis. Perhaps this will be revealed in the director's cut.

Why didn't someone check on the alien baby that Shaw cut out of her?

Again, this is another plot hole. If Vickers was concerned enough about contamination to kill Charlie, then why didn't she at least check on the alien that Shaw cut out of herself? There's a possibility that Vickers wasn't aware of the alien within Shaw. Vickers had just killed Shaw's boyfriend Charlie. Shaw may or may not have spoke to Vickers after her ordeal. Shaw also thought that she had sanitized/killed the alien after the surgery. The alien was also "confined" to the automated surgery chamber. Shaw wrongly assumed that the alien baby was neutralized.
Meredith Vickers (Charlize Theron) and Captain Janek (Idris Elba) in 'Prometheus.'
Why did Millburn try to touch the alien snake-like creature?

People do stupid things, sometimes to disastrous results. Given that these scientists, engineers, geologists, were the best money could buy (the Prometheus expedition cost in the trillions), this didn't make sense. An experienced biologist would not have taken chances like this, especially with an alien species. However, curiosity can sometimes get the best of people.

Xenomorphs/alien creatures/biological weapons

The Xenomorph creatures depicted in 'Alien' are eusoocial endoparasitoid extraterrestrial species. Like wasps and termites they follow a single fertile queen.

Did the Engineers create the Xenomorphs from the alien films?

Perhaps. The Engineers clearly knew how to manipulate the alien's DNA. There is a carved Xenomorph figure in a wall relief on the Engineer's ship. One can assume that these creatures existed prior to the Engineer's arrival. The Engineers may have "improved" upon Xenomorph biology, making them more deadly, but it is likely that the Xenomorphs existed in one form or another prior to this.

Alien wall carving in 'Prometheus.'
How did the black goo that infected Charlie, impregnate Shaw, become a facehugger, implant an egg in the Engineer, and become a Xenomorph?

The Engineers had been manipulating Xenomorph DNA on that planet. The black goo may have been a liquified form of the Xenomorph infection, which mutated. The weapon in liquid form was easier to transport and distribute than the facehugger eggs. If ingested the goo would mutate and kill the infected person. If the infected person had sexual relations with someone, the infection would impregnate their partner. Instead of a Xenomorph, the person would "birth" a squid-like facehugger, which would in turn forcibly implant a Xenomorph egg into another victim, sans the facehugger egg. The ultimate result was a Xenomorph so perhaps the Xenomorph biology was still consistent, despite being liquefied. This part should have been explained better.
