Stardust Arrow stephen amell

The WWE is having it’s 32nd supercard this year in Texas at Jerry Jones’ AT&T Stadium, the home of the Dallas Cowboys. Since 1985, Wrestlemania has been the Super Bowl for WWE and Chairman Vince McMahon. Like the Super Bowl, Wrestlemania has always had big time celebrity involvement. At the very first show celebs like Liberace, Muhammad Ali, and Cyndi Lauper were there, AND Mr. T wrestled in the main event tag match with partner Hulk Hogan. Over the following four decades, celebrities have been used as ring announcers, managers, interviewers, and most notably performers. NFL Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor main evented Wrestlemania 11 in Hartford, Connecticut against Bam Bam Bigelow, while Maria Menounos of Extra and Access Hollywood participated in a tag team match at Wrestlemania 28. Just last year WWE used major celebrity street cred to sell it’s SummerSlam show in August, in the names of former Daily Show host Jon Stewart and Arrow star Stephen Amell. Well, just like his DC superhero character, you can’t seem to keep a good hero down. After a Comic Con confrontation, it seems Amell may be making his Wrestlemania debut this year against his arch nemesis, WWE wrestler, Stardust.

Check out Stardust confronting Stephen Amell at Dallas Comic-Con 2016 in the video below.

Arrow Stardust Summerslam

After months of taunting, sending threatening tweets, and dueling over social media, the time has finally arrived. Stephen Amell, the star of The CW’s hit show Arrow, got in a WWE ring tonight for a match with his arch rival Stardust, as part of a tag team match on WWE’s mid-summer spectacular, SummerSlam. This all started when Amell, a known wrestling geek who regularly exchanges WWE title belts in his fantasy football league, attended an episode of Monday Night Raw back in May. When Stardust (Cody Rhodes, son of the late-great Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes) got in his face, the feud was on. The two have been battling over social media ever since, and Stardust has been making cryptic comments on WWE programming about needing a “hero”. A few weeks ago, Amell had a front row seat again on Raw. After high flying wrestler Neville defeated King Wade Barrett, Stardust attacked, and got in the face of Amell, who charged the ring for a brawl, and later issued the challenge. Tonight… was the match!

Check out the coverage and the tweets (including video) below.

Arrow vs Stardust

Stephen Amell is no stranger to fighting supervillains. For three seasons on The CW hit show Arrow, Amell has dealt with nefarious foes like Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman), Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett), and Ra’s Al Ghul (Matt Nable). But he ain’t never met anyone like WWE superstar Stardust, aka Cody Rhodes. After months of warring on Twitter, Amell showed up as a guest star on Monday Night Raw in Seattle, Washington, to confront the painted face wrestler. By 10:30pm, Amell was in the ring having security pull him off Stardust, and soon the match was made for WWE’s mid-year blockbuster event, Summerslam; this year emanating from Brooklyn’s Barclay’s Center.

Watch the confrontation video (around minute 1), and Amell get his match in the videos below.

Stardust Arrow

The war between WWE wrestler Stardust (Cody Rhodes) and Arrow star Stephen Amell heated up on SyFy’s Thursday Night Smackdown last night. Stardust is currently having a string of matches with Neville, a high flying British wrestler who comes out wearing a cape, and who uses a top rope finishing move called the Red Arrow. In the video, Stardust appears on the screen to distract Neville, and sends a not-so-veiled threat to Amell’s TV superhero alter-ego.

Adam Edge Copeland Flash

Life is good for geeks! If you’re a joint comic book/pro wrestling geek like me, life is VERY good. News broke this week that Adam “Edge” Copeland will be joining the cast of The CW’s hit show The Flash for season 2 as Atom Smasher. This Atom Smasher will be a villain – different from his DC Comics counterpart. The character has super strength, and the ability to grow to enormous sizes. He will certainly be a match for Barry Allen (Grant Gustin).

Check out some of the tweets about this and the WWE below.

Watch Now: First Official Trailer For Matthew Vaughn’s ‘Kick-Ass’

Kick-Ass Banner

We all should know the story by now: Matthew Vaughn — director of Layer Cake and Stardust — decided that a movie based on Mark Millar‘s ultra-violent graphic novel Kick-Ass needed to be made, and brought it to the money. Unfortunately, none of the studios had any interest in making a movie that would include an 11-year-old girl who is deadly surgical with a Katana blade. Instead of giving in, Vaughn went down another path and pulled the unthinkable: he went and got the money all by himself…all $75 Million of it. Since this bold move, Kick-Ass has been growing into a very popular project with many itching to see this “outside-the-box” superhero movie. After some footage at Comic Con was universally praised, the studios that had passed were now battling each other for the very right to distribute the film.

Now, finally, we the regular folk of the world are able to get our first peek at this curious and intriguing little flick with the release of the very first official trailer, and it was surely worth the wait. Kick-Ass promises to be a funny, fully-entertaining movie for adults, and it is fair to assume that it won’t take long to acquire a massive fan-following.

Continue on this path to watch the new trailer for yourself!

Don’t ask me why, but I’ve been working all day under the assumption that today was November 9, 2008. It’s only now in the evening that I realize that it’s actually November 10, hence the reason why this Neil Gaiman feature celebrating the author’s 48th birthday today is coming so late (sorry Neil!).

For those of you who don’t know about Neil Gaiman’s contributions to the geek world, I both pity and envy you — pity because of the deprivation you’ve experienced thus far; envy because if you follow the advice I’m about to give you, a whole new world is going to open up to you — and it’s a truly exhilarating experience.

One thing you’ll learn pretty quickly is that Gaiman is versatile enough to dabble in various literary categories, so there’s something out there for everyone — even the kids. Since Neil’s been writing for a such long time, you might not know where to begin. So, to help you out on your impending magical, eye-opening, life-changing journey, here’s a list of Neil Gaiman writings you need familiarize yourself with immediately (trust me, you’ll be thankful you did).

[Happy Birthday, Neil!]
