Cartoon Network has announced plans to reboot The Powerpuff Girls as a new animated series coming next year.  

From the press release:

Slated for a 2016 launch, The Powerpuff Girls reboot will include an all-new television series produced by Cartoon Network Studios and a full licensing program slated to roll out across all regions. One of the network’s most enduring original series, The Powerpuff Girls, which debuted on Cartoon Network in 1998, earned two Emmy® Awards, five nominations and countless animation honors throughout its 78-episode run. The Powerpuff Girls centers on three sugar-coated superheroes -- Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup -- whose mission in life alternates between going to school, fighting crime, winning at hopscotch and saving the world before bedtime. Emmy® and BAFTA award winner Nick Jennings (Adventure Time) is on board as executive producer.


Are you excited to see the girls back in action?

In a recent long-winded, tell-all blog post the creator of Game of Thrones, George R.R. Martin delivered some heavy felt news; we won't have our hands on the 'Winds of Winter' for some time now.

This means Martin's missed another crucial deadline, and perhaps almost worse, season six of the show will now air before it's original source material hits shelves.

Martin explains a bit on what's going on in the following excerpt from his 1800-word long blog post:

Believe me, it gave me no pleasure to type those words. You're disappointed, and you're not alone. My editors and publishers are disappointed, HBO is disappointed, my agents and foreign publishers and translators are disappointed... but no one could possibly be more disappointed than me. For months now I have wanted nothing so much as to be able to say, "I have completed and delivered THE WINDS OF WINTER" on or before the last day of 2015. But the book's not done. Nor is it likely to be finished tomorrow, or next week. Yes, there's a lot written. Hundreds of pages. Dozens of chapters. (Those 'no pages done' reports were insane, the usual garbage internet journalism that I have learned to despise). But there's also a lot still left to write. I am months away still... and that's if the writing goes well. (Sometimes it does. Sometimes it doesn't.) Chapters still to write, of course... but also rewriting. I always do a lot of rewriting, sometimes just polishing, sometimes pretty major restructures.

Let's just keep our fingers crossed the unexpectedly long wait is worth it.

The statue will be inscribed with the words ‘I’m just a kid from Brooklyn’, a line of dialogue from ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’.

To commemorate the 75th anniversary of Captain America, Marvel just announced plans to unveil an enormous bronze statue of Captain America at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Cheers, Cap'n.

We've all been waiting in eager anticipation for Suicide Squad to drop (comes out this Friday); and now that the reviews are finally rolling in...let's just say it ain't pretty--we're talking like mid-30%-not-pretty on Rotten Tomatoes.

And when you consider the more recent backlash over the Batman v Superman fiasco, the DC fans of the world are pretty dang irritated -- claiming these 'critics' are mere Marvel fanboys paid off by Marvel. 

Some of the more inspired DC fans have officially declared war on Rotten Tomatoes with a Change.org petition to remove the site from the internet altogether. See some of their reasoning below:

We've known for a while that Brienne of Tarth actress Gwendoline Christie would be in Star Wars VII, but Vulture is reporting her role is that of the Chrome Trooper.  Not much is known about this character, but if it is Gwendoline under there, here's hoping we get to see her without the chrome dome too.

Game of Thrones has already got the hand ampuation thing down; maybe Jaime can join Brienne for an epic saber fight?
