'Dr. Horrible 2' Was Killed By 'The Avengers'

1 November 2013 6:49 AM, PDT

By Tami Katzoff

2013 was supposed to be the year that a sequel to “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” finally came together. Fans and participants alike were excited about it; Nathan Fillion, who starred in the 2008 internet musical alongside Neil Patrick Harris and Felicia Day, had hinted that a sequel was forthcoming, if not imminent, and Maurissa Tancharoen, who crafted the film with the Brothers Whedon (her husband Jed and in-laws Zack and Joss) confirmed to MTV News in late 2012 that work was indeed being done.

But alas, it is not to be -- not in 2013 and highly unlikely in 2014. And you can put most of the blame squarely on the shoulders of the Avengers and their sequel.

“I think that all of us overestimated our multitasking abilities,” Zack Whedon told us. “It’s not on the front burner, unfortunately.” What is on the front burner is Joss’ second Avengers film »

'Serenity': Zack Whedon Continues 'Firefly' With A Very Pregnant Zoe

31 October 2013 1:00 PM, PDT

By Tami Katzoff

Browncoats (fans of Joss Whedon’s short-lived TV show “Firefly” and its feature film follow-up “Serenity”) have had reason to rejoice since Dark Horse Comics announced that the adventures of Captain Malcolm Reynolds and Co. will continue with a new six-issue comic series, “Serenity: Leaves on the Wind.” What makes this even sweeter for fans is the choice of writer for the series: television scribe Zack Whedon... Also known as Joss’ little brother.

Most of the previously published Firefly/Serenity comics, including those scripted by Zack, focused on backstory, or events that occurred between the TV show and the film. “Leaves on the Wind” will be the first series to pick up the action right where “Serenity” left off. It commences roughly 39 weeks after the Serenity crew managed to give the big bad guys of the Alliance a sizeable butt-kicking, with a very pregnant Zoe (widow »

'Arrow' Recap: Episode 2.04, "The Crucible"

31 October 2013 9:08 AM, PDT

By Ryan Rigley

Surprises a plenty in last night's "Arrow" as we were finally told the true identity of the masked vigilante known as the Black Canary. Picking up the episode with a hilarious juxtaposition of Felicity stalling Isabel Rochev and Oliver beating up armed thugs, "Crucible" begins with the former Starling City socialite showing up to his own event a little too fashionably late.

As Oliver talks to Isabel about the city's terrible gun problem, the District Attorney chimes in stating that he already knows where all of these thugs are getting their military-grade weapons: a crime lord that calls himself "The Mayor."

Back at the Arrowcave, Oliver discusses the Black Canary with Felicity and Diggle. Felicity then points out that the Black Canary hasn't been following Oliver, but actually Laurel Lance who has been on a crazy drinking-binge since last week's episode.

With that, Oliver meets up with »

'The Sandman: Overture': J.H. Williams III Explains Three Key Scenes

31 October 2013 6:00 AM, PDT

By Alex Zalben

Yesterday on the main page, we posted an in depth, but not very spoilery look at the making of the character Death in "The Sandman: Overture #1". Today, we're pleased to bring you a Very spoilery look at three key moments in the issue, from artist J.H. Williams III. Reminder: spoilers. Also, go buy the book because it's superb:

MTV Splashpage: I loved the flowing nature of the book… I think other than the scene in Morpheus’ office, every page almost flowed into the next one. Was there any thought to making the whole issue one giant gatefold?

J.H. Williams III: [Laughs] I would love to do one gigantic gatefold, that would be tremendous. It’s funny you mention that because we had an issue of Promethea where we wanted to do that, and it may get published as a gatefold in a special issue of Prometha next year. »

'Arrow': Emily Bett Rickards On Olicity, Black Canary, And "Birds of Prey"?

30 October 2013 1:47 PM, PDT

By Alex Zalben

Tonight on The CW's "Arrow," Oliver Queen and his team are put through the "Crucible," fighting a war on multiple fronts, while still trying to unravel the mystery of new hero Black Canary. In the middle? Oliver's trusty assistant/hacker Felicity Smoake, played by Emily Bett Rickards. In advance of tonight's episode, we chatted with Rickards on the phone about what's up with the Canary, whether there's a chance for Olicity, and if, maybe, we can see a little something called "Birds of Prey." Oh, and why Colton Haynes is amazing at Mortal Kombat:

MTV Splashpage: What’s coming up this week for Felicity Smoake?

Emily Bett Rickards: Felicity does a lot of dancing around and covering in this episode… There’s some teasing, and we get to see a lot of Isabelle interaction. And there’s her doing comedic jigs, covering up what they do during their nighttime activities! »

Will Ben Kingsley's Secret Marvel Project Reveal The Real Mandarin?

29 October 2013 11:31 AM, PDT

by Charles Webb

Alright, place this squarely in the "rumor" column, but Latino Review is claiming they have a scoop on Sir Ben Kingsley's role in an upcoming secret Marvel project - a role that undoes one of the most interesting things in this summer's "http://splashpage.mtv.com/tag/iron-man-3/ttp://splashpage.mtv.com/tag/iron-man-3/">Iron Man 3."

According to the site, Kingsley will be appearing in a new Marvel One-Shot which will reveal the true head of the Ten Rings and perennial Iron Man villain, the Mandarin.

So somehow, Kingsley's "Trevor" character - a drug-addled, hedonistic British actor hired by Aim to play act as a global terrorist - will bring the real version of the character into the Marvel universe.

Even if "Iron Man 3" director and co-writer Shane Black has publicly wondered aloud "Is it really worth it?" to revisit the character, the approach »

Victoria Hand May Show Up On 'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.'

28 October 2013 11:53 AM, PDT

By Alex Zalben

Take this one with a grain of salt, but Latino Review - which according to their website, offers a Latin perspective on movies and pop culture - is reporting that Marvel Comics' character Victoria Hand may be coming to "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.":

On a boring Friday afternoon, while I wait for the latest Banksy piece to drop this afternoon here in New York City, we got word from our usual trusted sources that Saffron Burrows (Troy) got cast in Marvel’s Agents Of Shield as Agent Victoria Hand.

If I can parse through their unique Latin perspective on this story for a moment - and move past the fact their source for this is themselves - it does make a lot of sense that Hand would show up on the program.

In the comics, Hand is a former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who ends up being Norman »

'Walking Dead' Recap: Episode 4.02, "Isolation"

28 October 2013 7:04 AM, PDT

By Kat Rosenfield

Last week, one poor fellow named Patrick unleashed the double whammy of suck upon the community: first he dropped dead of a highly infectious, incredibly deadly flu, and then he walked dead into a bunk and ate somebody's bowels. The result: many people bitten, many more infected, and no telling who will be next to die.

Spoilers Ahead.

With twelve people dead in last week's walker infestation, and the killer flu tearing its way through the remaining population, the graveyard in the prison yard is filling up fast — and they'll need to dig at least two more graves for the charred corpses of Karen and David, who were mysteriously murdered and then burned by persons unknown. Tyreese, who's still reeling from having discovered the bodies, undergoes some serious character development before the opening credits even roll: gone is the big cuddly love-muffin from the first two episodes, »
