Yesterday, Vanity Fair published an in-depth piece about the making of Zack Snyder’s Justice League which suggested that the four-hour project’s reshot ending will contain “a hero cameo that will blow hard-core fans’ minds.” Naturally, fans immediately went into overdrive speculating about what that cameo might be, with Ryan Reynolds’ Hal Jordan – AKA Green Lantern from WB’s 2011 live-action movie – gaining traction as a possible contender. Reynolds went on Twitter and denied that he was in the project, but the fan community has been burned by denials before, so I imagine a few stubborn people are still wondering if that response was just a smoke screen to conceal a surprise Reynolds cameo before the credits roll.
Now the cameo has been revealed. If you’d like to go in fresh, turn back now – there will be spoilers ahead. Read More »

Entertainment Weekly has a new video clip from the February 13th premiere of Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse. In the clip, we see “the first time we see Echo (Eliza Dushku) wake up after having her memories wiped in the special memory-flushing chair” which “leads into a discussion between lab tech Topher (Fran Kranz) and Echo’s handler Boyd (Harry Lennix) about her last “date,” delving into just what being a doll/active means.” I’m still not excited for this show, as much as I would like to be.
