NEW INHUMANS ARRIVE IN "AGENTS OF SHIELD" MID-SEASON DEBUT02/05/16 @ 10:50 pm EST
Vampirella gains a new writer this July with Brandon Jerwa! In Brandon's first issue, #21, needs something else here as after here the "after" should start the new sentence. After the startling events of last issue, Vampirella's ready to put everything on the line in an attempt to save one soul and destroy another. Heroes and villains alike are playing toward their own endgame, and the cards are turning with a deadly quickness. We're not kidding when we say that BIG changes are coming, and it all starts here with Part 1 of INQUISITION! Be sure to pick up Vampirella at this great jumping-on point with issue #21!
"I've been a fan of Eric Trautmann's Vampirella since the first issue, and given our ongoing collaboration, this might be one of the easiest handoffs in the history of comics," says writer Brandon Jerwa. "Will my Vampirella book be different? Absolutely. Will I be undoing what has come before? No way. Dynamite has a great franchise here, and I'm going to do my best to turn the amps up to eleven!"
"Eric's told all the stories that he wanted to tell and it's been a great ride. He helped us re-introduce Vampirella and we have been very happy with his stories and we're sorry to see him go," adds Dynamite Entertainment President and Publisher Nick Barrucci. "But Brandon Jerwa has big plans for the series, and it's incredible! I don't want to give too much away but it's a great new direction and fans will be happy."
Brandon Jerwa's comic book career began in 2003, when he submitted a script to Devil's Due Publishing that was accepted, and was eventually published in G.I. Joe: Frontline #11-14. Soon afterwards, he became the main writer on G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero and also wrote several G.I. Joe miniseries. On May 18, 2006, Brandon was featured on episode #24 of the Game Show Network's I've Got a Secret; his secret being that in honor of his work on the G.I. Joe comics, Hasbro used his face as the basis for the G.I. Joe action figure Dragonsky. In 2006 and 2007, Jerwa began writing for Dynamite Entertainment, working on the series Highlander, co-writing the first four issues with Michael Avon Oeming before moving on to a prolific run on Battlestar Galactica. Jerwa and Eric Trautmann collaborated on a project called Wide Awake, which appeared first as a short story in Popgun Vol. 2, then as a Free Comic Book Day special, and then later as a free webcomic. In 2009, the duo pitched an idea for a graphic novel to DC's imprint Vertigo, which was accepted, and soon after Jerwa was contacted about working with DC directly. Jerwa's first work for DC Comics was in September 2009 as the writer of the Inferno co-feature in The Shield, a monthly series that introduced re-imagined versions of the Red Circle Comics superhero characters into the DC Universe.
Brandon Jerwa currently writes Pantha in addition to Vampirella for Dynamite Entertainment!

"FEAR THE WALKING DEAD" CASTS VERONICA DIAZ IN RECURRING ROLE02/05/16 @ 10:23 pm EST
Supervising sound editor Matthew Wood and supervising sound editor and sound designer David Acord are the masterminds behind all the sound effects in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” During an interview with The Nerdist, they explained just how they created the sounds behind Kylo Ren’s Force power, his mask, the rathtars and more.
“Off the top of my head, the Kylo Ren Force rumble — the really chunky and animalistic rumble — is my cat’s purring,” Acord revealed. “It’s heavily pitched and slowed version of my cat’s purr that becomes Kylo Force rumble.”
“The Force sound to go along with Kylo had that deep, raw, animalistic sound,” he explained. “It’s a chunky, raw growl that’s supposed to imitate the Force power he wields, which is a little more raw versus Rey’s Force power , which tends to be — in the few moments when she’s using the Force, hers is a little more smooth and rhythmic and like a heartbeat. That’s the contrast between the two.”
“The thing about Kylo’s mask that was interesting is its function is purely intimidationbecause it’s not keeping him alive like Vader’s mask is. We wanted to find a way to capture that feeling,” Wood added.
Acord also shared the strange source of another sound effect, saying, “When the rathtar has his mouth on the cockpit of the Falcon, when it’s trying to eat the cockpit, that is me literally choking myself. Finger down my throat in front of the mic to accomplish that and then it’s pitched down.”
The rathtar isn’t the only way Acord’s voice made it into the film. As it turns out, he’s also the voice behind FN-2199, known more widely on the Internet as TR-82.” “Occasionally, you’ll just be working and, ‘We need this guy to say this right now’ and we’ll go record it. That’s another way; it’s on the spot. You find somebody that can do it, and you do it. That’s how FN-2199 happened. Originally, it was J.J. His voice was a temp placeholder, and he wanted to replace it. It went through four other actors, I think, before it landed on my performance and he was okay with it. It’s a really funny thing to me. It’s a cool scene; the stunt actor, Liang Yang, really did all the hard work in that scene, but it’s fun to be part of. I didn’t even know it was a thing on the Internet until Pablo Hidalgo emailed me and asked if he could post on StarWars.com that I was the voice of FN-2199.”
Directed by J.J. Abrams, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” stars franchise veterans Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker, joined by newcomers John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie and Max von Sydow. The film is now playing in theaters.

OLIVIA MUNN HAS IDEAS FOR A PSYLOCKE SOLO FILM02/05/16 @ 10:17 pm EST
DC Comics wouldn't let a movie like "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" pass by without a tie-in, and the two superhero icons are taking their fight from live-action back to comic books in March with the previously announced series of 10 "Batman v Superman" variant covers. DC released the first, a "Detective Comics" #50 variant by Rafael Grampá, Friday afternoon.
Each cover will have three versions, like seen above, and will be released in equal quantity and polybagged, similar to December's "Harley Little Black Book" variant initiative at DC.
"Batman v Superman" debuts in theaters on March 25, the same month as DC's themed covers. "Detective Comics" #50 is the first scheduled for release, on March 2; here's a look at the scheduled for the full slate of 10 (and yes, that's Chris Daughtry the singert):
3/2: Detective Comics #50 (variant by Rafael Grampa)
3/9: Action Comics #50 (variant by Martin Ansin)
3/9: Batman/Superman #30 (variant by Kevin Maguire)
3/16: Robin Son of Batman #10 (variant by Ryan Ottley)
3/16: Superman #50 (variant by Kaare Andrews)

WORLDS COLLIDE IN NEW "THE FLASH" PHOTOS; EP COMPARES WALLY WEST TO ROY HARPER02/05/16 @ 10:12 pm EST
Olivia Munn makes her X-Men debut this May in "X-Men: Apocalypse," and it sounds like she's already considered what a Psylocke solo film could involve. In an interview with Collider, Munn shared her thoughts on what she'd like to see explored if a "Psylocke" spinoff ever happens.
"I think if Psylocke had a chance to tell her story, it would be great to start with the genesis and have an understanding… I think maybe like right as she's getting out of university and before her whole family -- we jump in right before all of her family is taken out and we have an understanding of what she had to lose. Then her figuring out her powers and how powerful she is. I think that would be a great thing to, because it's something that I always loved about her. That she came from a good family and lost everything. Yeah, I would just like to tell that story."
A "Psylocke" solo adventure doesn't have much precedent in the source material, given that the character has only starred in one solo miniseries; 2010's four-issue "Psylocke" series by Chris Yost and Harvey Tolibao. Yet it may be unwise to rule just about any possible X-Men spinoff out:20th Century Fox has shown that they're eager to grow the X-Men film franchise, with "Deadpool" out next week, "X-Men: Apocalypse" in May and "Gambit" in the works.
Directed by Bryan Singer, "X-Men: Apocalypse" opens May 27.

OLIVIA MUNN UNVEILS A STUNNING NEW IMAGE OF PSYLOCKE FROM X-MEN: APOCALYPSE02/05/16 @ 10:05 pm EST
Team Flash -- or, at least, part of it -- has passed through the breach into Earth-2, and things there are a little different than what they're used to. A handful of new stills from "Welcome to Earth-2," the next episode of "The Flash," reveal some status quo shifts on the other side -- including a new, action-packed role and perhaps even an engagement for Iris West.
Additionally, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg addressed whether we'd see three speedsters at once at some point on the show. "I guess that could happen down the road," he told Entertainment Weekly, comparing the way Wally West might become Kid Flash to Roy Harper's development into Arsenal. "I wouldn't want to say no, but so much of that stuff is a little bit further into the future than we've planned for right now."

THE TIME MASTERS OFFER RIP HUNTER A WAY OUT IN LEGENDS OF TOMORROW PREVIEW02/05/16 @ 3:33 pm EST
Actress Olivia Munn has just finished up chatting with her fans via a Twitter Q and A, and in addition to revealing a few interesting tidbits about her role as Psylocke in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse
, she unveiled a brand new image of the fan-favorite mutant warrior in action.
Though her hands aren’t visible, Munn has confirmed that Psylocke will indeed use her Psi Blades (physical manifestations of her psychic powers), and you’ll notice the purple tendrils running along her wrist in the pic.
Fans were very happy with how comic-accurate Psylocke’s costume was, but they may not be quite as pleased to learn that Miss Braddock won’t be speaking with a British accent as she does in the comics. Munn also reveals that she shot a very intense fight sequence (though she won’t go into the specifics of who was involved etc), and that it was by far her favorite sequence in the film.X-Men: Apocalypse
is set to hit theaters on May 27th, 2016.

arrives on February 12th.
