TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT STARTS FILMING IN CUBA05/26/16 @ 7:35 pm EST
Comic Book Newbie reviewed The Shadow #1 by Garth Ennis and Aaron Campbell and gave the book “9 out of 10 Newbie Re-Reads.” Here’s what they had to say:
“I finally got around to reading this one and am I glad I did!
“Garth Ennis is one of the hottest names in the industry right now and this book proclaims why. Meet his main character, Lamont Cranston. Smart business man who the CIA consults by day and The Shadow by night. He has the ability to see the future and knows well the past. He also has the ability to make the dead speak the truth to him. Ennis takes us on a journey into the past where Japan created atrocities upon China. The history lesson sets up what is to come in this pre-WWII storyline when a ship full with Japanese goons is taken out by the Shadow. Seems there is something these guys are looking for, along with other criminal groups and the CIA… The Shadow also seems very interested in it.
“I really like this introduction issue. I like the history lesson and the banter from the meeting between Cranston and the government agents. The action was pretty cool and a I am impressed with the abilities The Shadow possesses. I think we have just got a taste of what he can do in this issue and I’m excited to see what other abilities he has.”

Transformers: The Last KnightVALIANT REVEALS RECORD-SETTING X-O MANOWAR ARTIST JAM COVER05/26/16 @ 7:32 pm EST
has officially started shooting, and while it wasn't the first film to shoot in Cuba, it can at least claim the second.
Director Michael Bay celebrated as much via a post on his Instagram account, saying: "CUBA! Second American Movie shot in Cuba. Transformers. Amazing place! #transformers."
The first movie to film in Cuba was Vin Diesel's Fast & Furious 8
(which is also filming now). The film is a reunion of sorts, as Michael Bay is joined by Transformers: Age of Extinction
star Mark Wahlberg, along with Transformers 1 - 3's
Josh Duhamel. If things go Tyrese's way, he could also be involved in The Last Knight. That doesn't mean it's all returning characters, though, as newcomers Isabela Moner and Jerrod Carmichael.

THE WALKING DEAD CAST APPEARING ON THE RED NOSE DAY SPECIAL05/26/16 @ 7:23 pm EST
In Superman V Batman: Dawn of Justice
earlier this year, it was the first time the powerful superhero Wonder Woman was portrayed in live-action since the Lynda Carter-led television series went off the air in 1979. Why did it take so long?
"Oh, I don't know. They just had a hard time replacing me," Carter joked to ET Canada before getting serious. "I think that they needed a woman director and they needed the focus to be about the story of who she is. And I think they got that. So from what I understand, it's going to be great. I can't wait!"
Warner Bros. Pictures’ Wonder Woman
feature film, the highly anticipated action adventure from director Patty Jenkins (“Monster,” AMC’s “The Killing”), starring Gal Gadot (the “Fast & Furious” movies) in the role of Diana Prince/Wonder Woman. The character will made her big screen debut in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” but the new film will mark her first time headlining a feature.
Set to open in June 2, 2017, the Wonder Woman
feature film is based on characters created by William Moulton Marston, appearing in comic books published by DC Entertainment.

CHRIS EVANS RESPONDS TO CAPTAIN AMERICA'S HYDRA TURN05/26/16 @ 7:16 pm EST
The official Alien
Facebook page has released the first official image of Katherine Waterston as 'Daniels' in 20th Century Fox's upcoming film,Alien: Covenant
, and the caption reads, "Nowhere to run."
Little is known about Waterston's character other than she's a crew member on Covenant, a colony ship. As you can see in the image, Waterston is sporting short, dark hair and wearing a tank top. Her appearance is probably meant to remind us of Ripley's (Sigourney Weaver) look in the original 1979 film.

THE JOKER ROLLER COASTER SHUT DOWN AFTER RIDERS GET STUCK05/26/16 @ 7:13 pm EST
Yesterday’s release of Marvel’s Captain America: Steve Rogers
#1 sent shockwaves through fandom. Nick Spencer and Jesus Saiz’s story implies that Steve Rogers is secretly a Hydra agent, and may have been recruited into the terrorist organization as a child. Fans were distressed at what this could mean for the iconic and patriotic Avenger’s past, present, and future.
Word of Captain America’s dark turn seems to have reached Chris Evans, the actor who plays the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of Steve Rogers. Evans responded to the news with a simple tweet reading, “Hydra?!?!? #sayitaintso.”
Evans has played through a somewhat similar scenario on screen. InCaptain America: The Winter Soldier
, it was revealed that the entire S.H.I.E.L.D. organization had been compromised by Hydra up through its highest ranks, and had in fact been under Hydra’s thumb since its earliest days. In that story, Captain America proved to be a singular, incorruptible force that helped root out and remove Hydra’s influence. In the current Marvel Comics Universe, it seems those roles may be reversed.

THE FLASH'S GRANT GUSTIN SAYS WE CAN MAKE ASSUMPTIONS ABOUT SEASON 3 AFTER SEASON 2 ENDING05/26/16 @ 7:09 pm EST
Six Flags Great Adventure's newest attraction was shut down on Thursday after a pair of riders found themselves stuck for several hours. The Joker roller coaster, a 4D, free-fly coaster opened for the first time earlier in the day.
By 3:30 PM, park officials decided to close down The Joker ride down for the day. Kristin Siebeneicher, a spokewoman for Six Flags, says the park officials hope to have the ride open again on Friday but don't know for sure just yet. The shut down came about an hour after the ride's initial unveiling ceremony, credited to the vehicle's "dampener," a piece of equipment which controls the car, being in need of adjustment. It had been running flawlessly for three days prior to the unveiling.
"It's a new ride and new rides occasionally need to be tweaked," Siebeneicher said.
"We clearly don't want that to happen, so we swapped out that vehicle," said Great Adventue Park President John Fitzgerald. "No one's safety was ever at risk."
Six Flags Great Adventure is home to several other DC Comics themed roller coasters. It features Man of Steel, a roller coaster which offers its passengers a true feeling of flight, Green Lantern, on which passengers stand up for the entirety of the ride, the floorless Bizarro roller coaster, and the inverted Batman: The Ride roller coaster.
Great Adventure is also home to the world's tallest roller coaster, Kingda Ka, standing at 456 feet tall. When Kingda Ka opened in 2005, it would regularly shut down for maintenance, including a multi-month adjustment period in its debut summer.

THE WALKING DEAD'S ROBERT KIRKMAN REVEALS WHO NEGAN KILLED?05/26/16 @ 7:02 pm EST
Paramount Pictures has released (via Collider
) a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
trailer that focuses on the lovable villains Bebop (played byGary Anthony Williams) and Rocksteady (played by Stephen “Sheamus” Farrelly).
"Rocksteady and Bebop are two thugs who dream of being supreme criminals," Sheamus told Woodford Times
. "Unfortunately their intellect is lacking in that department, and they bring a lot of chaos to the movie. I wanted to do this role because I’m a huge fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and have been since I was a kid. I love the character, and I really wanted to be part of this movie. I saw and loved the original movies in the cinema when I was a kid, and I really enjoyed the reboot from a couple of years ago. I had already achieved one childhood dream — becoming a WWE superstar. And now, being involved with a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, at this level, with such a great cast, is another one."

The Walking Dead
's big cliffhanger has been revealed! Only look if you want to know! Okay, probably not really, but The Walking Dead
's writer and creator Robert Kirkman is having some fun with the big mystery which is clouding the show's off season.
Kirkman joined Talking Dead
host Chris Hardwick on his Comedy Central series @midnight
for some fun and games this week. One topic Hardwick gave to the participating comedians was terrible cliffhangers. Each comedian had to come up with the very worst cliffhanger ending for a TV series and being a Walking Dead
fan, Hardwick cited The Walking Dead
's cliffhanger and claimed not to have the answer to everyone's question but Kirkman burst out with, "I know!"
When it came time to reveal the terrible cliffhangers, Kirkman teased Negan's kill. "On the next exciting episode of The Walking Dead
, we find out how mad fans are when they find out Negan killed Carl in the season six cliffhanger," the writer said, sparking a rowdy reaction from the other participants, the crowd, and Hardwick.
"People wanted to know!" Kirkman insisted. "I'm not gonna make you wait all summer! I'm not an a--hole!" Surely, he's joking and poking a little fun at his own TV show.
Carl is likely the only character who is ruled safe in the cliffhanger. Prior to unleashing Lucille, Negan threatened to "cut the boys other eye out," implying that Carl would have a head to cut an eye out of in the first place. Kirkman has also admitted that Carl is his favorite character on the show and many suspect he'll eventually become the leader in his father's place.The Walking Dead
will return for its seventh season in October.
