Author Jessica Taylor explains the reasoning behind her flawed female characters, including those in her latest book, A MAP FOR WRECKED GIRLS. Guest Post by Jessica Taylor There was never a day when I decided to write unlikable girls. I didn’t make lists of cruel jabs for my heroines to deliver or think of ways they could more deeply hurt those they loved the most. I didn’t wonder how to make my girls more selfish, more self-centered, more unaware of the consequence of their actions. What I did set out to write were the girls I grew up with. Girls I see…

There is at least one plot point that will change when Frozen goes to Broadway. The adaptation is losing the rock trolls. The trolls will be replaced with hidden folk. These creatures are drawn from Scandinavian folklore and chanting in Norwegian and are described as scruffy, sexy, tailed creatures covered in greenery. The thought behind the change is to make the show less cute and more mystical. The new additions will sing the troll’s “Fixer Upper” song as well as the opening number, “Heart of Ice”. Frozen will make its way to Broadway Spring 2018. SOURCE

Check out Steppenwolf’s design details thanks to a new figurine! If there’s one thing that promotion for DC superhero team-up film Justice League has carefully avoided, it’s showing off too much of its villain, Steppenwolf, who is portrayed by Ciaran Hands via motion capture. Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice released a deleted scene featuring the character, but the CGI was clearly incomplete. The Comic-Con trailer showed close-ups of Steppenwolf’s legs and ax as he lands on Wonder Woman’s home island of Themyscira, but it avoided giving fans any straight-on looks at the character as he fought the heroes throughout. Today,…
