THE WALKING DEAD
ComicBook.com has a partial transcript of Michael Rooker’s surprise appearance on “Talking Dead,” where he spoke about his character’s conversion into a zombie following his last stand.
“I don’t think it was ever, in my mind, it was never a suicide mission. In my mind, it was hitting the beaches,” Rooker said. “Ok, yeah, granted you may die. But you don’t think of dying. You go and you do your job. My job, plain and simple, I think you already stated it, was to go in, make an entry, take out as many as I possible can and make an exit. Well, you know, the exit thing didn’t happen. Although, I’ve got to tell you, I did make quite an interesting exit, but it wasn’t the one I was thinking of.”
Season finale airs this Sunday on AMC

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and DC Entertainment have teamed up to produce a documentary on the villains of the DC Universe called “Necessary Evil.”
“DC Comics is known for many things, but chief among them is the compelling, diverse and legendary society of supervillains who populate its universe,” Geoff Johns, DC’s chief creative officer, said in a statement. “From the monstrous Solomon Grundy to the brutal Black Adam to the charismatic Sinestro, there is no single greater collection of villainy in all of fiction. These villains are hugely popular comic book characters in their own right and, quite honestly, many are often times more popular than some of our iconic superheroes.”
Michael Bay’s official Twitter account has confirmed Nicola Peltz as the newest member of the “Transformers 4” cast. Peltz was rumored to be cast in the film last December, but had not been confirmed. Peltz will join Jack Reynor and Mark Wahlberg as one of the stars of the sequel.
