Family Guy/The Simpsons

If you’re a fan of animated shows about fat guys who have wives that rightfully should have smothered them with a pillow in their sleep years ago, then good news: there is an apparent crossover show between the two long time animated hits that will air in 2014.

In “The Simpsons Guy” episode of FAMILY GUY, Peter (Seth MacFarlane) and the Griffins get out of dodge and end up in Springfield, where they are greeted by a friendly stranger named Homer Simpson (guest voice Dan Castellaneta), who welcomes his new “albino” friends with open arms. The families get along famously: Stewie (MacFarlane) becomes obsessed with Bart (guest voice Nancy Cartwright) and his old-fashioned pranks; Lisa (guest voice Yeardley Smith) takes Meg (Mila Kunis) under her wing and is determined to find something – anything – at which she excels; Marge (guest voice Julie Kavner) and Lois (Alex Borstein) ditch housework for a little bonding; and Peter and Homer fight over the best beer in town – Pawtucket vs Duff.


AICN reports on a memo that says there will be a Batman movie in 2015. While Batman-on-Film reports that there is chatter that the movie would be a Batman Beyond adaptation about a crotchety   old Bruce Wayne finding a new protégé to take his place on the streets of Gotham.

Also, for what it’s worth, Harry’s doc also continues the ludicrous charade that Warner Bros. will get it act together long enough to make a Justice League movie by 2015.


Here is Bishop, the Time Travelling Mutant from the dystopian future:

And here is the head of one of the Giant Nazi Death Robots:

Thor: The Dark World

Reportedly, Benicio Del Toro will make an appearance in the Thor sequel, possibly in a post-credits scene to lead us into Guardians of the Galaxy, where he’ll reportedly be the principle bad guy of that movie, the Collector. Which, admittedly sounds less like a supervillain and more like an annoying fanboy at a comic con that wouldn’t leave the comic book writer alone, so the annoyed writer made him into supervillain in his comic books, so he could cathartically have his heroes punch the little bastard in the face on a regular basis.


More TV news from ComicCon, there was a Sherlock panel that was introduced with this video from stars Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch:
