In case you didn’t notice, we’re going through something of a mini-renaissance for the Simpsons in pop culture. The show is about to get new life on demand thanks to FX, the Lego toys are super popular, its theme park presence is getting expanded, some people spend way too much time with their mobile game Tapped Out, and things just keep on rolling.

Below, you can watch the full Simpsons Lego episode and see the first images from the Simpsons Family Guy crossover. Read More »

This week’s release of the Gotham trailer raised as many questions as it answered. The upcoming Fox TV show set in the world of Batman certainly had that gritty, Gotham City, Dark Knight look. But it also seemed to be set a little further away from the canon than fans expected. The original pitch was a show about Jim Gordon (Benjamin McKenzie) investigating the murder of Bruce Wayne’s parents, telling a cross section of the city years before Batman shows up.

Gotham, which will premiere on Fox this Fall, is being helmed by Bruno Heller, who previously ran Rome and The Mentalist. For his first interview about the show, Heller sat down with Entertainment Weekly to answer a lot of the questions you had after watching the trailer. How much Bruce Wayne will be used? What’s the end game? How do you build suspense if none of the characters can die? Is it serialized? Get answers to all your Gotham burning questions below. Read More »

The list of confirmed Star Wars Episode VII actors still hovers around zero, but the list of rumored stars seems to grow longer every week. The latest subject of speculation and gossip is Jack Reynor, who’s probably best known for a role that hasn’t even hit theaters yet — he’s the star of upcoming Transformers: Age of Extinction. More on this story after the jump.
Update: The Irish Independent prints a statement from Reynor’s reps saying “There is no truth in that — Jack is not taking on a role in the latest Star Wars film… He has not been approached about a role and there has been no discussion… The rumours started online, but there is no foundation to them.”

There’s a moment in The LEGO Movie where Milhouse, Bart’s best friend from The Simpsons, is at a gathering of master builders.
