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

    The World Doesn't End Because the Doctor Dances

    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.

    Whether you gracefully accepted it as the next bold step in the hero's storied legacy or drove yourself to giving up on reading anything from Marvel Comics forever -- which really translates to about two weeks, let's not kid ourselves -- there's no denying that the upcoming transition of the role of the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is a historic milestone for the web-slinger, with the new Spider-Man's madcap adventures in altruism starting tomorrow in Superior Spider-Man #1.

    Since revealing that The Amazing Spider-Man would end its near 50-year run with issue #700 and restart fresh with The Superior Spider-Man #1, Marvel Comics teased their legion of unwavering Spidey devotees with the knowledge that the wise-cracking hero and his spirited sense of carpe diem would be done away with in favor of an edgier, stronger, and smarter Spider-Man that can apparently shatter mere stone with his fingertips.

  11. Outraged Fans Threaten the Life of Amazing Spider-Man Writer Dan Slott on Twitter

    We've all had that feeling of nerd rage at some point in our lives, though the exact extent of this ire varies from person to person. The common denominator among these moments of displeasure is that they've always been triggered by things such as changes to a particular continuity's status quo or a company's mishandling of a beloved intellectual property. While we're entitled to our opinions, there is such a thing as going too far in expressing them. Such was the case when irate fans took to Twitter and began threatening Amazing Spider-Man writer Dan Slott over the series' final storyline in issue #700. At this point, however, calling this nerd rage is a large understatement.

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

    Cautiously Optimistic

    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??
