Walt Disney World’s Disney Springs section is getting a new Indiana Jones themed bar.

Soon, guests will be able to lounge in Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar, an eatery named after Indie’s pilot. In addition to aviation themed décor, the bar will feature a menu with drinks like mojitos, and small food plates.

"In the main room, guests will discover an expansive bar, aviation decor filling the room, vintage travel posters covering the walls and correspondence between Jock, Indy and their fellow adventurers on display. Guests can eat, drink and be merry outside as well, in Jocks’ old steamboat, now in permanent dry dock and aptly named 'Reggie," [after Jock's pet snake] and in nearby seating on the adjacent deck," said the Disney Parks Blog post that announced the new bar.


Telltale Games Says No WALKING DEAD Season 3 in 2015

It looks like fans of Telltame Games’ The Walking Dead episodic game series will have to wait a little longer for season 3, said Telltale’s director of PR Job Stauffer via Twitter.

Fans should not despair, however, as Stauffer also mentioned that “something major” would be coming for fans of the games in 2015, even though new episodes of the game would not be out this year.


THOR Screenwriter Responds to HONEST TRAILER

Thor co-screenwriter Zack Stentz has filmed a reaction video to the Honest Trailer for Thor. In it, the writer waxes about Marvel's directives to him and co-writer Ashley Edward Miller, saying "They already knew at that point, 'We're building toward The Avengers,' and they said, 'Guys, if you fail at everything else, give us a villain as good as [X-Men bad guy] Magneto,'"

That's not all the writer, who could thankfully laugh along with the Honest Trailer, had to say. Check out the reaction video right here.

New LEGENDS OF TOMORROW Sizzle Reel Hits The Web

Hot on the heels of the first official trailer, a new sizzle reel for CW's upcoming Arrow/Flash spin-off Legends of Tomorrow has made its way online. Check out the clip right here:

 

JOHNS & BERLANTI Talk SUPERGIRL's Place In Possible DC Crossovers

Don't call it a Crisis - yet. So will CBS's Supergirl crossover with the CW's DC shows or not?

The CW's President Mark Pedowitz has gone on record several times saying that Arrow and The Flash would crossover at the end of every year due to the high ratings of their inaugural event. And now DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns has confirmed the plans to Variety, as well as the inclusion of DC's Legends of Tomorrow once it launches in early 2016.

“We do have crossovers planned,” Johns states. “The point of building these three shows out on The CW network is we can make a comic book world. The shows are acting like monthly comic books by doing so."

That being said, one show that won't be part of the family will be Supergirl from CW's parent network, CBS. “The network has said publicly at this point they’re going to keep her to themselves,” says Greg Berlanti, who is the executive producer on all four shows. “I always approach the shows as a fan first, so I would love to see (a crossover). I think in success, all things are possible. But there’s a lot that would have to happen before everybody might say yes to that.”
