I’m sure you’ve all been sitting around lately thinking, “Gosh, y’know what Game of Thrones really needs? A sitcom spin-off focusing on the hijinks of Tyrion Lannister and his mercenary ally, Bronn.” Come on, I know you were. The comradery between the little lion and his unsavory mate is a highlight of the show and novels and as crass as an actual sitcom spin-off would be, I kind of want it…
That Justice League news was unexpected, and while it’s still a rumor it seems to be a pretty solid one. Unsurprisingly the team lineup is Supes, Bats, Wondy, Flash, and GL. I’m shocked, WB, shocked. Though in all seriousness, I’m disappointed there’s no Aquaman. Come one, give him a break! He’s proven lately he’s not as lame as everyone always thought.
Even more unexpected, GRRM is writing something that isn’t The Winds of Winter!? What the fuck, George!? This prequel novella sounds awesome ‘cause it’s all about the Targaryen Civil War, known as the Dance of the Dragons, but still, it ain’t The Winds of Winter. Dude, HBO is gonna catch up faster than you think.
I also want to draw you attention to this insane bit of news: J.J. Abrams is directing Star Wars Episode VII. I know! Who would have thought we’d ever live in a world where one man would be in control of both Star Trek and Star Wars!? What’s next, Whedon directing Justice League?
