The A to Z Theme Reveal is Friday, March 21. Since I do not post on Fridays, I will reveal my theme on Monday, March 24.
Blastr - Avengers Easter egg in Captain America 2 revealed.
At the end of The Avengers, Stark Tower was decimated and only a A remained of the name. That was a hint, as fans will get a brief look at the new tower – now the Avengers Tower. We’ll see more of it next year in The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
JoBlo - Bryan Singer is already talking about the next film, X-Men: Apocalypse.
“Apocalypse will have more of the mass destruction that X-Men films, to date, have not relied upon. There’s definitely now a character and a story that allow room for that kind of spectacle.”
Total Film also posted eight images from the next movie.
Gateworld - aborted Stargate: Atlantis movie may become comic instead.
The unfilmed movie could be released as a four-issue comic through BOOM! Studios. In it, Atlantis becomes the new base for Stargate Command and faces complete destruction. The script for Extinction has been in development hell after MGM backed out due to financial difficulties. This is not the first time the series has appeared as a comic.
I know I would prefer a movie, as the series ended so suddenly...
Review – HBO’s True Detective
McConaughey and Harrelson do a spectacular job in their roles. Big props to McConaughey – he’s improved with every role. He owns this one.
The arc of both characters is refreshing and surprising. I won’t give anything away, but the season ended on a great note for me.
Prepare to be creeped out.
This Wednesday, March 19 – Susan Kaye Quinn will be at the Insecure Writer’s Support Group site, so be sure to stop by.
Sean McLachlan just released The Scavenger, a short story set in the same universe as Radio Hope. Buy it now for .99 cents on Amazon.
Marcy Hatch’s first book is out – West of Paradise!!
Set in the Old West, this high-spirited tale of mistaken identity, romance, and murder is part historical fiction, part time travel fantasy, and completely captivating.
Buy it now on Amazon.
Authors - Michael Di Gesu is looking for YOU! He had eye surgery recently and since everything appears to be fine now (we’re saying he’s healed) Michael is ready to dive into the Challenge and feature a new book each day. See his site for details.
I believe it was Susan Gourley who asked that the next picture of Mini-Alex be an indication of spring. This is for you, Susan – our trees are starting to bloom!
