[VIDEO] Elongated Man to The Rescue! "The Flash" Season 4 Casts Hartley Sawyer (@TheBigHTonight) as Series' Newest Superhero!

The CW has made quite the name for itself with his televised universe of DC Comics’ superheroes. First there was Green Arrow, then Flash, followed by Supergirl, then a medley of heroes in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,  and very recently Black Lightning. Between the show there are dozens of superheroes, sidekicks, love interests, super villains, and plot twists.

Well now The Flash  will be getting some super-heroic help thanks to the Elongated Man! Yep, Ralph Dibny, AKA “Elongated Man” is finally making his debut in Central City on the fourth season of the hit series.  The CW has opted to cast Hartley Sawyer (Saving The Human Race) as a recurring character in the role.

Elongated Man is a superhero with the ability to stretch his body and limbs like elastic great distances–just think Plastic Man or Mr. Fantastic, just not as powerful or as smart. He is however, an amazing detective, someone even Batman respects. Alongside his wife, Sue, he solves crimes and stops villains usually alongside The Flash. With all of the craziness Team Flash has to endure this season with mastermind super villain, The Thinker, we are sure Vibe, Julian, Joe, Iris, Kid Flash, Dr. Wells, and Jesse Quick can use all the help they can get!

We are very excited to see Elongated Man added to this upcoming season and just a new hero in general. His wife had better show up too, after all Ralph and Sue are kind of like the Henry Pym and Wasp of the JLA. We recalled the creator of all these series stating his goal is to flood television with superheroes. Well it is working! We love the formula too, The CW has opted to follow Netflix’s suit with bringing light to lesser known heroes.

What do you guys think of this casting decision and the Elongated Man? Check out the trailer for Season 4 and sound off below!

It Happened! Disney-Fox Merger Returns X-Men & Fantastic Four to Marvel!

Today is officially the BEST DAY EVER! Disney and Fox have reached a $54 Billion Dollar deal, granting Disney the rights to the X-Men, Fantastic Four, Deadpool, and other television properties like the X-Files, and gain a majority stake in Hulu.

Today is officially the BEST DAY EVER! Disney and Fox have reached a $54 Billion Dollar deal, granting Disney the rights to the X-Men, Fantastic Four, Deadpool, and other television properties like the X-Files, and gain a majority stake in Hulu.

avengers vs x-men disney to buy fox

Today, Rupert Murdoch—Fox’s executive chairman—expressed his confidencein the acquisition’s potential to strengthen both companies:

“We are extremely proud of all that we have built at 21st Century Fox, and I firmly believe that this combination with Disney will unlock even more value for shareholders as the new Disney continues to set the pace in what is an exciting and dynamic industry.”

News of the deal comes after early reports that Fox proper was looking to unload 21st Century Fox in favor of focusing more on news and sports, its two other largest business endeavors. For Fox, this deal means a rather hefty payday but for Marvel, it’s more of a long-overdue homecoming.

For years now, some of Marvel Entertainment’s most iconic characters that first put the comics publisher on the map back in the 70s have been locked out of the MCU because of deals made during the 90s in which Marvel sold off the film rights to properties like the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, and Deadpool. Now, Marvel can get to work on changing that, but it doesn’t mean that it will or even should happen anytime soon. Properties like Avatar, The Simpsons, FX Networks and National Geographic will also fold into Disney’s portfolio according to the official release.

While Fox’s X-Men and Fantastic Four movies weren’t always particularly good, the studio was finally in the process of beginning to carve out a rather distinctive and honestly refreshing voice in the superhero movie space with films like Logan, Deadpool, and The New Mutants. The sequels to the latter two movies are still due to be released on schedule (no word on the X-23-focused Logan followup) but there’s no telling what Marvel plans to do with its new toys now that it has them.

Side note, the true shade is the merger did not include Fox News. Clearly Disney has no time for the bullshit! #NoAlternativeFactsHere. Now transitioning on to better news, this means Storm and Black Panther will be an item, we may get that Avengers vs. X-Men movie, and above all else all of our favorite Marvel heroes get screen time together. We are just wondering how the two universes will merge. Maybe the Reality Stone, one of the Infinity Stones will play a part in making this happen? This a good look and an amazing business move Disney move! You have fanboys everywhere bowing in thanks!

“ResurreXion?” Marvel Revives 3 Major X-Men Characters Ahead of Fox-Disney Merger!

It has been a rough decade for the X-Men in Marvel Comics. Systematically speaking, the comic giant declared war on our mutant heroes after Fox insisted on keeping their movie rights to the iconic team. First, 99% of the comics’ mutants were depowered, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver were made into enhanced humans, Terrrigen Mists (the gas that created the Inhumans) invaded Earth killing more mutants, and finally Jean Grey, Professor X, Wolverine, Nightcrawler, and Cyclops were all killed!

Well it looks like Marvel is opting to resurrect a few of the X-Men–Wolverine, Professor X, and Jean Grey!

The company hinted that many of the X-Men would make a return to the land of the fictionally living. Sources close to the Disney-Fox merger are reporting that not only is the merger taking place, but Marvel Comics knew of it well beforehand and opted to slowly return these key X-Men.

Jean Grey’s return is most surprising, since she has been gone from the comics for nearly twelve years. In her place, a time displaced teen version of hers has been wandering around. Now the actual Jean is returning and fans could not be happier. Wolverine’s resurrection comes thanks to the Space Stone, one of the infamous Infinity Stones. Meanwhile, after a battle with the Shadow King on the Astral Plane, an X-Men ally, Fantomex, sacrifices himself to return the Professor to the physical world.

There is no word on Cyclops or Nightcrawler’s resurrection, but we are sure the X-Men’s fearless leader will return soon to atone for his madness these last few years, and what would the X-Men be without their fuzzy blue elf! We are just glad this war on the X-Men is stopping. Maybe this means we will finally get some new X-Men cartoons, video games, and merchandise. Marvel make it happen!
