Race & Gender: The Doctor Who Casting That Might Have Been

The Doctor Who casting reveal this past Sunday drew 6.2 million viewers on BBC One alone but the result wasn’t quite as shocking as many had expected considering the fanfare. While star Jenna Coleman said the 50th anniversary celebration is “quite a transformation episode and it very much changes the direction of where the show is going in quite a big way,” she never said anything about the 12th Doctor being much of a departure. But post-announcement, we heard a few things about the possibilities (or lack thereof) for a different actor to take on the famous role and are now lamenting the might-have-beens.

A Video Tribute to Amazing Spider-Man #700 [VIDEO]

MTV Geek! has put together this video tribute to Amazing Spider-Man #700, featuring several persons involved in the comic (including writer Dan Slott), Stan Lee (of course), Norman Reedus (I approve), and several of the cast members of Jersey Shore. Well… they are on an MTV show, so that makes sense… I guess.

Anyway. Fair warning: Do not watch this if you have not already read Amazing Spider-Man #700. Don’t even click the jump, as the preview frame of the video tells you what happens.

There are going to be spoilers in the comments, too.

Basically, if you A) haven’t read it or B) don’t already know what happens, click away from this story right now lest ye be spoiled.

Law & Order Actress Angie Harmon Is Ready To Play Another Lawyer: Marvel’s She-Hulk

Angie Harmon currently stars as Detective Jane Rizzoli in the TNT crime-drama, Rizzoli & Isles, but you may remember her from the long stint she did on NBC’s Law & Order as Assistant District Attorney Abbie Carmichael. As it turns out, Harmon is itching to get back into law. Superhero law to be more specific. Harmon wants to play Jennifer Walters, a.k.a. She-Hulk. And yes, she already posted a picture of herself as She-Hulk to show us how serious she is.

Cautiously Optimistic

Amazing Spider-Man Writer Dan Slott Says the Revamped Musical Rocks

If there’s anyone who might be able to offer an informed opinion on a Spider-Man musical, it’s a Spider-Man writer. The much-maligned Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark returned to Broadway this week after a major overhaul that included a new script and book by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, a comic book writer who has actually written Spidey stories. And now, The Amazing Spider-Man writer Dan Slott is calling him “the hero who saved Spidey” in his Tweeted review of the revamped show. Wow — really??
