Disney has been turning out successful live-action adaptations of classic fairy tales like 'Maleficent' and 'Cinderella' so it was prime material for parody on Saturday Night Live. With host Dwayne "Franchise Viagra" Johnson playing Bambi, SNL imagines what a live-action remake of the cartoon would look like as a bloody revenge fantasy.

If you're reading this you're probably aware there was a significant death on Vikings and it will change Ragnar and the direction of the going forward. In fact, our favorite group of Northmen will be gearing up to attack the mythical city of Paris. At least the way Athelstan's been describing it, it sure sounds like a magical place. But first, things get a little, okay a lot, messy in 'Born Again.'

Consider today "Deadpool Friday" as a series of reveals have gone down in anticipation of the movie adaptation of Marvel's Merc with a Mouth. On the heels of star Ryan Reynolds in the Deadpool suit he posted to his twitter account earlier today, 20th Century has launched the official website, synopsis, and logos.
The latest video from 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' is a featurette with interviews with the "super siblings" played by Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch) and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver).Director Joss Whedon is also interviewed and called these roles "massively important" to the film. They go on to describe their characters and what powers they possess. Check it out.
The first official look of Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool has been released by Reynolds himself on Twitter. He's laid out on a rug in front of a roaring fireplace. Seems like an appropriate locale for the Merc with a Mouth. "Deadpool" is scheduled to premiere on February 12, 2016.
Even though this new teaser from Warner Bros. for the upcoming 'Mad Max: Fury Road' picture starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron is only 15 seconds long it packs a huge punch in explosives alone. It's no wonder it's entitled simply "Explosion" and promises to be as over-the-top as Geoge Miller's original classic Road Warrior saga.
Join Gallery1988 THIS FRIDAY NIGHT, from 7-10 PM, at G1988 (East) for a special engagement show with LRG clothing and artist Chris B. Murray. Murray has taken his favorite Hip-Hop albums from the 1990's and reimagined their covers in his own style as drawings and limited edition prints.

Legenderry: Green Hornet #2 by Daryl Gregory and Brent Peeples moves the action into high gear as Hornet and Kato try and track down the infamous Veiled Lady. A gang war has broken out and there's a bounty on Hornet's head. And it gets worse for our daring heroes.
Jungle Jim #2 picks up where the debut left off with Lille and the gang finding the legendary immortal jungle mage buck naked. Whereas the first issue thrived on the strength of all the characters not named Jungle Jim, issue two is all about the fast-talking, arrogant, and overly confident animal-whisperer. It's one of the most enjoyable comics of the year.
Just when I'd given up on the whole "Disney princesses as..." art mash-ups this beautifully rendered collection came across my Google feed. Artist MuiMushroom transformed famous Disney heroines into the most powerful heroes from DC Comics. Ariel as Aquaman? Check. Merida as Green Arrow? Check. See them all:

In the least likely of rap battles you could think of, The Warp Zone went ahead and pit Hodor against Groot anyway. The lyrics are as limited as you'd suspect but after watching it the first time put on the subtitles for the most NSFW subversive verbal beat down between a monosyllabic brute and a tree ever.
The Black Hood #2 by Duane Swierczynski and Michael Gaydos continues with an electrifying origin story that hits all the right notes in a brutal and gritty fashion. Greg Hettinger is letting his addictions run his actions and it's putting him on a collision course with a powerful drug lord.
New comics 3/25/15 by Slidely Slideshow
This week in comics is so stacked with quality reads it proves that perhaps you can have too much of a good thing. We've only scratched the surface in our weekly round-up of notable new comic book releases. There's everything from a new Jem and the Hologram series to the on-going scarefest Wytches from Scott Snyder and Jock and everything in between. You can't go wrong today. Check out this week's comics of note.
The last ten minutes of last week's episode, Out of Time, dropped some major show-altering bombs only to be undone by Barry's sudden time warp to the beginning. With The Flash starting as the last episode began Barry has the chance to save Central City from a humongous tidal wave and finally make Iris his with the knowledge he learned before the time rip. As expected, things don't go as planned especially when the rogues hit town.
