Inter-Galaxy Portal News RoundUp 15th February 2013


What a crazy week. Meteors in Russia, a near Earth asteroid. The stuff of scifi!

In other news, Stephanie Caldwell has moved on to bigger and better things, so no more Community reviews from her. We’re sad to see her go, but we’ll still keep you up to date on our thoughts on Community, so stay tuned! Meanwhile, I do a rant about stunt casting. It’s not that I don’t sometimes enjoy it, but I do think relying on it is damaging for a show. Also, HBO releases a new teaser trailer for Game of Thrones‘ third season.

Some big Doctor Who news this week. The BBC announced that the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special will be broadcast in 3D. Also, the ice warriors will make a return in the series’ third episode. The ice warriors haven’t been seen since the Classic 70s Who series, and frankly I can’t wait to see what they’ll look like!

Marvel released an image of Don Cheadle as the Iron Patriot which you can see above.

Game of Thrones actor Peter Dinklage has landed a role in X-Men: Days of Future Past. It’s not yet known who Dinklage will play, only that he will be the main villain.

Finally, the BBC announced that the makers of Merlin and Misfits are now working on a new series based on the anicient city of Atlantis. Atlantis will begin filming in April. More info as it comes to us!
