Former costars and colleagues, along with a number of industry publications, paid tribute to Anton Yelchin today, on what would have been his 28th birthday.
One last party in Mystic Falls.
While everyone is talking about Buffy's 20th anniversary today, I can't stop thinking about vampires. After eight seasons and 171 episodes, tonight marks the final bow of The Vampire Diaries. The show began as a supernatural melodrama aimed at teenagers, but over the years grew to become something more trope-busting. This is the end of a blood and bourbon-soaked era.
The actress hit up The Mary Sue to talk about TVD's final season, feminism, that Steroline June wedding and if Caroline is making another trip to New Orleans.
The CW's session at the TCA summer tour gives us so much reason to hope. After their main presentation, where they debuted their upcoming show from Aline Brosh McKenna called Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, eight female executive producers from The CW took to the stage in a panel called Running the Show: The Women Executive Producers of The CW and spoke honestly and optimistically about being women in the television industry and what they're doing to help other women thrive.
The Mary Sue Exclusive
Anyone reading The CW’s The Vampire Diaries
digital series? DC Comics have given us an exclusive look at tomorrow’s Chapter 29.
I will make it legal!
So Disney has decided that they're going to nuke most of the previously established Star Wars canon
. I think this is as good a reason as any to finally bury the destructive concept of canon in fictional works. Note that this does not mean that I am against stories in continuity with each other, that's not my position at all. I love continuity, and the story options that it enables. But even as I enjoy continuity, I don't see why we should be judging stories as more or less significant than another on any basis but their merits. And that's all canon does, it arbitrarily privileges some continuities over others. Why should we recognize that kind of a distinction? Why should we give a soulless corporate entity that kind of power over our culture? Because that's what we're really talking about here.
The Future Is Now!
Mickey!!!! (Sorry, had to.) Noel Clarke and Ian Somerhalder star in this sci-fi film which is almost certainly not about Neo from The Matrix. The description on the video says, "A former soldier is taken captive and awakens in the back of a van to learn he only has a few moments to figure out how he got there. It's a unique concept set in the near future that explores the idea of mind control.

If you liked it then you should have put a Lantern Ring on it
, cast member of HBO's Girls
, was recently thrown into the rumor ring
for the Man of Steel
sequel. Several websites named the actor for the comic book character Nightwing, Batman's longtime partner and protégé Dick Grayson, but another finally asked Driver if there was any truth to the story.
where does he get those wonderful toys
Have you ever been really excited to pick up an action figure or collectible doll only to look at the face and go, "meh?" (Except for that Tom Hiddleston/Loki doll
, good god.) While the creators of these figures usually spend a lot of time coming up with something that looks similar to the actor who played the part, they've got nothing on Noel Cruz
. He painstakingly repaints the faces of some already pricey dolls (Hot Toys, Tonner, etc.) to give them the realistic look we all wanted in the first place. If you like what you see, you can try and commission one from him but prepare yourself - 12 inch dolls start at $1000. He does a lot of pop-culture work but take a look at what he's done with the characters from Harry Potter
, The Lord of the Rings
, and more.
