Anthony Rapp let it be known at San Diego Comic Con 2017 that he will be in a relationship with Wilson Cruz on Star Trek: Discovery. Rapp will play Starfleet Science Officer Lt. Stamets and Cruz will be medical officer Dr. Hugh Culber.

Rapp stated: “I can announce that Wilson Cruz will play my love interest and my partner in Star Trek: Discovery…I’m very proud of that and that he’s a scientist.”


Awesome! Not only will we have another gay couple in Star Trek but the characters will be played by gay men. I know that should not be a huge deal but to me it is a big deal. Other than a few cable shows like Looking, or Queer as Folk where the show is described as being a gay show, most gay couples on screen are played by at least one or both actors who identify as heterosexual in their personal lives. So this does make me happy. Plus I adore both Wilson and Anthony. Wilson will always be that guy from My So Called Life while Anthony is the annoying best friend in Adventures in Babysitting (or the guy from Rent).


Star Trek: Discovery is set to air on September 24, 2017 on CBS All Access. Obviously there are a lot of haters for many reasons on this show, and this gay romance is something that is adding to it. I personally cannot wait to see this and hope that the show is a success. What do you think of Wilson Cruz and Anthony Rapp in these roles?

Well this looks promising. I happened across this fan made video that has several Batman characters appearing in it. It stars actor/stunt coordinator Timmy Parish as Red Hood and has Tim Drake aka THE Robin, played by James M Fuller. The quality is quite good for a fan made video and has a lot of potential. Check it out when you get a chance. This is the full episode. I’d watch a full time series based on this premise in a heartbeat!

The series is directed by Wayne Ten. Professor Pyg also the writer is Andrew Laux.

The first footage of CW’s gay superhero, the Ray has been released from San Diego Comic Con. The CW’s streaming service has released another animated series which starred Vixen in the past. This current series is titled Freedom Fighters: The Ray. In this we have our protagonist taking on evil versions of Arrow, Supergirl and the Flash in a parallel world where the Nazis won World War II.

Also appearing in this small clip is Black Condor, Phantom Lady, and Red Tornado of the Freedom Fighters. It should be known that the Ray is a gay superhero in the current DC Comic book continuity. The description of the character: Raymond “Ray” Terrill was a reporter who discovered a group of government scientists working on a secret project to turn light into a weapon of mass destruction. But before he could report on his findings, the project head exposed Ray to a “genetic light bomb.” The bomb failed to kill him and instead gifted Ray with light-based powers. With these abilities, Ray realized he could go beyond reporting on injustice — he could take action to help stop it. Calling himself The Ray, he was recruited by Uncle Sam and the Freedom Fighters to fight violence and oppression wherever it exists.


Holy hell, the first image of Young Justice: Outsiders, Season 3 has been shown. We have Spoiler and Arrowette in the mix. FUCK YES! And I am fairly confident that Tim did make this cut. I mean that does look like him in the picture. There was rumor that he was going to be phased out so that fucking Damian Wayne could be brought in. Luckily if that does happen, at least Tim will be there for some of the story. Regardless, this looks great!


If you are not aware of all of the characters, here is the breakdown from left to right: Static Shock (love the new look), Kid Flash (formerly Impulse), (Red) Robin, Wonder Girl, Spoiler, Blue Beetle, Thirteen, Arrowette (although it looks like Speedy), Arsenal, and Beast Boy. The senior Young Justice members have not been shown, yet. So I’m curious how Aqualad, Miss Martian, Superboy, Artemis (Tigress), Nightwing will look in this update. Maybe a new Young Justice comic book is not too far away! The image below is fake, but I can dream! What do you guys think of the line up so far for Young Justice Outsiders?


I had no idea that a graphic novel and now an independent movie was made on serial killer – Jeffrey Dahmer’s teenage years. The graphic novel was written by John Backderf also known as Derf and Derf Backderf. The story goes along with Derf and his friendship with Dahmer from the ages of 12, all the way up to the day that Dahmer killed his first victim a couple weeks after high school graduation.


I was worried about reading this book because I know of the horrific things that Dahmer did to his victims. But luckily Derf has gone on to say ‘there is no violence or gore in his book; it just hints at the violence, which in a way makes it much more eerie and unsettling, forcing the reader to read between the panels.’ Also Derf makes it clear that Dahmer is not a sympathetic character. He is a monster. But apparently every monster has a beginning.

So maybe I will check this book out before the movie is released. Or at least when the movie is more widespread released. I will be cautious though, as there are certain genres I generally steer clear from seeing. Disney star Ross Lynch plays Dahmer and Alex Lynch plays Derf, There is no official release date for the movie, but it has been shown at the Canadian premiere at Fantasia International Film Festival on July 16. What do you guys think? Is this something any of you would be interested in reading/watching?


What?! I didn’t even know that a movie based on the creator of Wonder Woman was being made. This is cool. I’m sure there will be comic book historians that disagree with this movie, and others that do not like the concept, but still I think this is awesome. I am by lacking a lot of history of Wonder Woman’s creation. The little I know about Dr. William Marston is that he helped create the lie detector test and was also in a relationship with his wife and former student. They lived together with their combined children together. Luke Evans plays Marston with Rebecca Hall as his wife.

The synopsis for the movie reads:

The unconventional life of Dr. William Marston, the Harvard psychologist and inventor who helped invent the modern lie detector test and created Wonder Woman in 1941. Marston was in a polyamorous relationship with his wife Elizabeth, a psychologist and inventor in her own right, and Olive Byrne, a former student who became an academic. This relationship was key to the creation of Wonder Woman, as Elizabeth and Olive’s feminist ideals were ingrained in the character from her creation. Marston died of skin cancer in 1947, but Elizabeth and Olive remained a couple and raised their and Marston’s children together. The film is said to focus on how Marston dealt with the controversy surrounding Wonder Woman’s creation.

This movie is set to release sometime in 2017.


I liked the season premiere of Game of Thrones. The opening scene alone had me cheering. It was obvious that it was Arya using her face changing skills. I would have liked to have seen more of my Khaleesi, but there’s many more eps to explore her story this season. I also could have done without the chamberpot cleaning montage. Ehhhhh…gross. However, there was a small scene that seemed a bit out of place. I admit that I did not recognize Ed Sheeran at first as a soldier for the Lannister army, but afterwards I was made very clear that he’s in it. I was honestly expecting Arya to kill all of them when I was watching it. Personally I just looked past this, but apparently Sheeran’s cameo role has caused some anger with fans.

That’s just a few of the Tweets I saw. I’ve seen countless Facebook posts too. Personally I do not really care, but I can see the anger. It is dissatisfying to see that a show puts in celebrities for no reason. Although it is not going to deter anyone from watching the show at all. Still, not liking a particular moment is all too familiar in this series. What did you think? Did you care or not?


Just recently announced by BBC, Jodie Whittaker will be the new the Doctor on the long time running show Doctor Who. She will be replacing Peter Capaldi who I have gone back and forth as liking his take as the Timelord. As for Jodie, I personally think this is great. I would have rather have had Russell Tovey take the role, but a female Doctor is something we have not had yet and I think the change could bring on a lot of new levels of story telling. I will judge this based on Jodie’s performance and I will also be curious as to how she will play the Doctor. Every actor has their own way of performing and the Doctor always seems to have a different personality when he/she regenerates. So I am curious.


However, how do other people think about this? Well…you can probably guess. If you do not want to read a lot of angry and very misogynistic posts, do not read Sci-Fi/Doctor Who forums right now. Just saying. But what do you think? Is this a good casting or not? Hey maybe we’ll get a new male companion!

I had no idea that a series was really being made. That is great news! I’m not a huge vampire fan myself, I’m more of a werewolf guy, but I do love a couple of the books. I had heard rumors but recently I saw one of Anne Rice’s Facebook posts:

Anne here: Guys, we talk a lot about who can play Lestat. And we all know that if we don’t get that right, nothing else may matter. This is one series in which the star plays a super hero role. I am thinking an unknown will come to us for the part. But who are the up and coming young actors you all see and want to suggest? Include pix if you can. And any data. I love reading your responses. And yes, we’ve done this before with less focus perhaps on ‘up and coming.’ But let’s do it again.”


So who do you think should play Lestat? The post has a lot of names attached to it. I’m curious who you guys think should play him.
