Will Taylor Swift be Kara Zor-El? (Ok so it’s a slow news day)

Rumors are running wild that Taylor Swift is in line to play the blond superhero in a short red cape and shorter skirt, Supergirl.

Hollyscoop is reporting that producers of the remake of Supergirl: The Love Story, a movie we haven’t heard a thing about, are very interested in Taylor Swift for the title role.

Taylor Swift is already a super girl in her own right, but she may be playing the role of the comic book hero in the near future! Sources say the singing sensation is up for the lead role in Supergirl! The Love Story

Hollywood producers are reportedly very interested in Taylor playing the Girl of Steel for the remake of the 1984 movie, which was actually a big flop at the box office.

Supergirl – alias Kara Zor-El – first appeared in comic books in 1959. Helen Slater played the role in the movie — a spin-off of the popular Superman film series, which starred Christopher Reeves.

An industry insider says, “Hollywood is short of female heroes and the time is right for a new Supergirl. A number of young stars are being mentioned for the title role in a Supergirl movie and possible TV spin-off and Taylor is top of that list. She has all the right elements to be a positive role model to young girls.”

News From The Spike Video Game Awards

First: Bungie gave the world a first look at Halo: Reach, while no actual gameplay was shown, the trailer did feature in-engine graphics and the first look at what is supposedly Planet Reach.

It’s been a while since the Medal of Honor franchise has found its way on to store shelves, but we’re interested for what the series will bring to the crowded realm of modern shooters. At tonight’s 2009 Video Game Awards, the first footage of the recently revealed Medal of Honor impressed with solid visuals and a metric ton of explosions.

Samuel L. Jackson took the stage to announce Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2. The trailer features a Vader vs. Yoda voice over, Starkiller fighting a beast muuuuch larger than a Rancor, but no gameplay, and no release date.

Man, I’d post a video if they didn’t go up and down so quick. I’ll come back and update you guys when more official videos surface.

Oh and just now, Rocksteady and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced the sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum is currently in development. We knew it was coming, and we can’t wait.

Mass Effect 2 Star Cast Reviled

BioWare has revealed the voice cast for Mass Effect 2, with a cast of new and returning voice actors that covers just about every corner of science fiction fandom.

Of course the biggest addition to the Mass Effect 2, Martin Sheen as the Illusive Man, has already been outed, but he’s just the tip of the iceberg as far as new cast members are concerned. BioWare has pulled in talent from multiple television and movie properties in order to help facilitate a more emotionally engaging story.

* Martin Sheen (Charlie Sheen and Emilio Estevez’s dad) — Illusive Man commanding Cerberus
* Shohreh Adhdashloo (sexy voice lady from FlashForward) — Admiral Shala’Raan vas Tonbay
* Seth Green (hand in your geek card if you don’t know) — Joker
* Yvonne Strahovski (wiener lady, lust of Chuck) — Miranda Lawson
* Adam Baldwin (a man named Jayne… or the man they call Jayne) — Kal ‘Reegar
* David Keith Keith David (Halo’s Arbiter) — Admiral David Anderson
* Michael Dorn (Star Trek TNG’s Worf) — Gatatog Uvenk
* Tricia Helfer (2020 Oscar winner after people stop treating her like meat) — EDI, voice of the “new Normandy”
* Michael Hogan (Colonel Saul Tigh) — Captain Bailey
* Carrie-Anne Moss (Trinity from Matrix, singular, no sequels exist — especially not Revolutions) — Aria T’Loak

We also can’t forget Jennifer Hale, who is reprising her role as the real Commander Shepard, nor Mark Meer, the male Shepard and known expert at cutting the council off at weird times.

Table Top Gaming Of the Future

This is SurfaceScape, a project aimed at taking Microsoft’s “Surface” touch-screen table and bending it to the will of a bunch of tabletop gamers.

Watch the clip, especially the first couple of minutes, with the practical demonstrations. Then imagine playing a game of Warhammer 40K on it.

Much like how Styling Online is the perfect mix of t-shirts and pop culture, this is the perfect blend of video games and tabletop gaming. The tactile feedback you get with actual miniatures mixed with the processing power and rendering capabilities of a computer.

Big Bang Theory, “The Gorilla Experiment” – Oh my that’s a nice shirt Sheldon!

I always comment to my wife about the awesomeness of Sheldon’s shirts on the Big Bang Theory, and last night he was looking more spiffy then ever.

niceshirt

On Monday night’s episode of Big Bang Theory, Sheldon was wearing a Blackest Night: Violet Lantern T-Shirt (Follow that link if you want one). So the shot may not be the best, it is my camera phone, but you get the idea.

Another funny episode, as per usual. It’s nice to see Bernadette (aka Howard’s Girlfriend Bernadette) integrated into the group, and to see that she’s at least learned to identify Howard’s jokes, if not understand them, as that seemed a bigger stumbling block to the relationship than the Megan Fox issue. Simon Helberg had a great time playing a smug, content version of Howard, even if that was revealed to be a bit of a facade from a guy who’s still not secure about his ability to get and keep a woman.

And the Penny/Sheldon interaction was gold, as always. This was a really strong episode for Kaley Cuoco, from Penny’s playful taunting of Sheldon in the opening scene to Penny’s exasperation at Sheldon’s teaching methods.

While I’m at it, that’s not all I got for you guys. You remember this episode?

Guess what we just loaded to the site?

That’s right, it’s the The Big Bang Theory – The Friendship Algorithm T-Shirt! (I should also mention, it comes as a Juniors Tee also)

The Next Riddick Location Scouting Has Begun

According to Vin Diesel’s Facebook page, the Riddick crew is headed to New Zealand to look for locations. Which is totally different than any Riddick world we’ve seen thus far. This newest news about the greatest Furyan boosts our hope that the next Chronicles Of Riddick project will be made, and with a new setting.

I wonder if New Zealand will be the hostile planet Riddick will be stuck on, “surrounded by hostile beasts.” I hope so, because it’s gorgeous. And while I’m happy to have Riddick back, I’m hoping that they attempt to explain the Necromonger world that was introduced in the Chronicles of Riddick — but so far the new Riddick sounds more space action and less space opera. Still, always good to have the Furyan back.

Hot on the Heals of Call Of Duty, EA Announced Medal of Honor

EA ANNOUNCES ‘MEDAL OF HONOR’
Franchise Re-booted with New Development Teams, New Soldier, New Setting

Guildford, UK – December 2, 2009 – Medal of Honor returns to the front lines, this time in today’s war. For the first time in the franchise’s 10-year history, Medal of Honor is leaving the WWII theatre and putting players in war-torn Afghanistan. Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) today revealed that in 2010, Medal of Honor, an all-new first-person shooter game, will introduce the Tier 1 Operator: a relatively unknown entity directly under the National Command Authority who takes on missions no one else can handle. The development team has been working closely with Tier 1 Operators from the US Special Operations Community since the earliest stages of development to create the most authentic modern war experience. Inspired by real events, Medal of Honor reveals the mission of today’s most elite soldier – his will, his mindset and his uncompromising professionalism.

Medal of Honor is being built with a best-in-class single-player campaign. The Medal of Honor development team at EALA has been hand-selected by the studio leadership of General Manager Sean Decker, Executive Producer Greg Goodrich and Senior Creative Director Rich Farrelly. To compliment the single-player experience, EALA has enlisted the multiplayer expertise at EA DICE. This team will develop the multiplayer experience of Medal of Honor. These two studios are coming together to deliver a world-class Medal of Honor that is poised to re-set and re-boot the franchise for a new generation.

“When we first set out to reinvent Medal of Honor, we wanted to stay true to its roots of authenticity and respect for the soldier but bring it into today’s war. The Tier 1 Operator is the most disciplined, deliberate and prepared warrior on the battlefield. He is a living, breathing, precision instrument of war.” said Greg Goodrich, Executive Producer, Medal of Honor. “We are honored to have the rare opportunity to work closely with these men to create a game that shares their experience.”

“EA has always been an advocate for telling the soldiers’ story. The new Medal of Honor follows that tradition. We felt it was important to tell the story of today’s war and today’s elite soldiers via today’s most relevant medium – videogames,” said Sean Decker, VP and General Manager of EALA. “We are so proud to bring together two powerhouse development teams to make this game a reality; EA Los Angeles and EA DICE. Medal of Honor promises to be an unforgettable entry in the modern shooter genre.”

Tune in to Spike TV’s 2009 Video Game Awards on Saturday, December 12 at 8pm PST for a world-premier first-look at Medal of Honor.

ABC Sets Firm Date For ‘FlashForward’ And ‘V’

FlashForward‘ And ‘V‘ fans rejoice, your shows are coming back.

ABC ran a promo at the end of Thursday’s “FlashForward” letting viewers know the show would return March 4. It’s similar to the announcement made at the end of “V,” saying the show would return that same month. But while the “V” message met with relief (it’s coming back!), the “FlashForward” push is being met with dismay (that long?), especially since fans expected the show to continue in January.

ABC wants to get the show out of the way of the Winter Olympics and air the show straight through without repeats. The network also is setting a firm date for the return of “V” — March 30.
