Very intriguing, but there's so much to Robert's Rebellion that you may need 2 or 3 movies to properly tell the story. I've always thought Robert's Rebellion would make sense as a "flashback season" if HBO wanted to drag out GoT's run and/or needed time for GRRM to finish writing the books. ...

[quote]but wait. he was a senior QB under Nick Saban. I thought bad QB play was a Miles inability to develop QBs thing?
Saban only signed three QBs from 2000-02 - Marcus Randall, Ricky Clausen (or one of those Clausen brothers) and Lester Richard. Somehow Jimbo & Saban thought that ...

Universal is trying to create a cinematic universe for its "monster" properties, a la Marvel/Disney. The scene which is being discussed in this thread was apparently added in post-production so that this Dracula story-line could be shoe-horned into the "Monster Universe."

I thought Geoff Johns had previously indicated that they wouldn't confuse their TV and film universes - i.e. characters appearing on the Arrow/Flash TV universe wouldn't appear in the Justice League movie universe played by different actors.
Does anybody think this won't turn out to be a raging ...

The relationship between Tywin and his children is one of the most-fascinating aspects of the show. Each of the children has qualities that Tywin values - Jaime for his martial prowess, Cersei for her ruthlessness and extreme ambition, and Tyrion for his intellect. However, none of the Lannister k...

Why do celebs even keep potentially embarrassing photos on their phones? Are they really that dumb and/or unsophisticated? Don't their agents and managers warn them about these risks?
And if they absolutely have to send a naked pic to a significant other, wouldn't they be better off just using s...
| Movie/TV Board|| re: Liam Neeson willing to reprise Ra's Al Ghul role on Arrow - NWHoustonTiger on 8/30/14 at 9:26 am|
That would be awesome, but won't (and shouldn't) happen because the Ra's of the Arrow universe is not the same Ra's as in the Dark Knight Trilogy universe.
Who would you guys like to get the part? No one actor really jumps out to me, but a couple guys I could live with:

Very cool. The Arrow producer's comments seem to indicate that Arrow could use Ras because he would not feature into the "Batfleck" universe. I think one could infer that DC will at least keep their film and TV universes separate - i.e. characters who appear in the Justice League film universe won't...

In a sense, I would like to see Warren as the Democratic nominee in 2016. Warren, more so than Hillary Clinton, would shift the election's focus from personality/biography to ideology (even though she, like Hillary, would be vying to be the first female US President). We really haven't had an ideolo...
