Joe Manganiello also played Flash Thompson in the first Spider-Man movie directed by Sam Raimi.

Man, talk about premature aging...

Is it me or is the outfit Artemis wearing pretty much the exact same thing Black Canary wore? Same jacket that Sara gave to Laurel?

Supergirl is on Netflix! It's as cheesy as I thought it would but it's still watchable. I'm curious to see how bringing in Tyler Hoechlin as Superman next season will affect things, I'd like to see the dynamic of their relationship. Too bad Arrow season 4 and Flash season 2 aren't on Netflix yet. Soon...soon...and Luke Cage at the end of the month, really happy about that.

I wouldn't be surprised, Artemis is the fake Black Canary from last season so having her 'earn' the jacket seems an obvious thing to do.

I uh, soooo quit watching Arrow when the season split up halfway through.  I am probably way behind now (again).

Almost done with Supergirl. Martian Manhunter looks awesome and is totally badass. They really need to integrate her universe into Flash/Arrow/Legends.

I just break out laughing looking at the Hulk, its the beard X3


So apparently Agents of Shield has a new Ghost Rider...only he drives a muscle car instead of a Motorcycle.

But this Ghost Rider is the new (2013) version, Robbie Reyes who's comic incarnation drove a muscle car.

Anything that helps distance this new Ghost Rider from the Cage portrayal is a positive. :D

Amen to that! I've always said, they should have just got the kid who played young Johnny Blaze to keep playing him throughout the movie instead of Cage.

The motorcycle is better.  Ghost Rider was always supposed to be a biker.  I'm not against updating with the times though.  So if he's going to drive a muscle car, it needs to be a new one.  Like the newer Shelby Cobra GT 500s.  I'm a little sick of seeing the new Dodges, but a Camaro might even be okay if you could count it as a muscle car over the 'vette.

As long as he can warp stuff with his hellfire like that shotgun in the movie, I'm good. He can do that to a helicopter, maybe, or even one of their quinjets. How awesome a finale would that be?

*Thought* What if he wrapped Cap's shield in hellfire or Thor's hammer?  0_0

They'd have to set precedent about the TV stuff crossing into the movies first.

A flaming indestructible frisbee that ricochets off of walls? That is perhaps one of the most epic things I have ever heard of. If could give you a cookie Bride i'd give you a baker's dozen.

Imagine him pitching it at Thor and having him smack it with the hammer to send it flying like in Age of Ultron, give it a hell of a lot more momentum!

Since Cap had to leave his shield behind in Siberia, I'm thinking he'll get a new one in Wakanda. What I would hope for, though, is an upgrade (I may have mentioned this already) where the shield is double-layered, so that there's two in one and if he's stuck blocking something, he can detached the second one and throw it (kind of like what the Hulk did when he was using those two bits of metal to destroy the sound machines in his movie). It's kind of the next logical step for his shield since everything he can really do with it at this point has been done.

Give it little rocket boosters that trigger when he throws it, so it hits EVEN HARDER.

I am definitely looking forward to the new Luke Cage series, looks like fun.

(I love the Stan Lee Cameo that happens at 2:05 )

Second that notion concerning Luke Cage.
