An all new week has begun, welcome to The Pit!
- The first season of The Walking Dead has already ended! It feels like it had just begun… well, it had. The short six episode season pulled a lot from the comic and did a lot right. The season finale took a big diversion from the comic and tried to offer the audience and characters some explanation about how the zombies rise. It also did something that the comic never did by showing us a flashback of what happened to Rick in the hospital. Have you enjoyed the first season? Looking forward to more?
- Campbell Scott and Julianne Nicholson have joined the new Spider-Man movie as Peter Parker’s parents, In the main Marvel Comic comic they were revealed to be spies before their death, while in Ultimate Spider-Man Peter’s father was a scientist that helped develop the Venom symbiote. It will be interesting to see if they are seen in flashbacks, or if we’ll see Peter as a young child before their death. It might be a bit much to have them die and Martin Sheen’s Uncle Ben also die. Irrfan Khan and Annie Parisse have also joined the movie as a villain and his wife. Khan’s character is Nels Van Adder, an Oscorp employee who is used as a test subject by Norman Osborn when he is testing his Goblin formula. The incomplete formula turns Adder into a red goblin like monster. Does this mean that Norman Osborn will be in the new film? Sure seems like it. This seems to point a little towards the reboot following Ultimate Spider-Man. I just wish Mary Jane was gonna be in the movie.
- Hawkman, Stargirl, and Black Canary return in this Friday’s Smallville! We had Aquaman two episodes ago, Lionel in the last episode and before the season ends we’ll have Booster Gold, Blue Beetle, and other DC Comics characters. I think this has easily been the best season of Smallville. It is a shame that it is its last.
- Looking for a good Holiday gift? You should think about getting wine delivery for friends. It makes an awesome gift.
