Craig Ferguson in Talks For Syndicated Tribune Media Talk Show

By Rob Siebert
Editor, Fanboy Wonder

Craig Feguson is reportedly in final talks with Tribune Media to host a daily syndicated half hour talk show.

The show would air in the 7 p.m. (Eastern time) hour across Tribune’s 42 stations. The idea would be to pair the show alongside a rerun of an established sitcom. The company is also in talks to expand distribution of the show beyond its own outlets.

Ferguson has hosted The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson since January 2005. He would reportedly take his executive producer Michael Nadius with him to Tribune as well as his character sidekicks Geoff Peterson (voiced by Josh Robert Thompson) and Secretariat.

Ferguson was at one point supposed to succeed David Letterman on The Late Show. But shortly after Stephen Colbert was announced as Letterman’s replacement, Ferguson announced he was leaving the show in December.

Captain America 3 News: Russo Brothers Bringing “New Elements”

By Rob Siebert
Editor, Fanboy Wonder

While the third Captain America film won’t be here until 2016, Anthony and Joe Russo are already dropping hints as to what we’ll see in Cap’s next big screen go-around.

As should be obvious to those who saw the end of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the film will focus on Steve Rogers’ search for his former partner Bucky Barnes. The third film will play off its predecessor by “bringing some new elements to the table that will give us a twist on Winter Soldier.”

Anthony Russo also noted the political and ethical themes used in the previous films will remain present.

“The character was invented for an explicitly political purpose. So it’s hard to get away from that nature,” he said.

By Rob Siebert
Editor, Fanboy Wonder

Salvatore Maroni, the character who (at least in most story continuities) was ultimately responsible for creating Two-Face by throwing acid into Harvey Dent’s face, has been cast in Fox’s Gotham.

David Zayas, best known for his role as Angel Batista in Dexter, will play Maroni in a recurring role on the series. Maroni’s arch rival will be another gangster Batman fans are familiar with, Carmine Falcone (played by John Doman).

The Maroni character was also featured in 2008′s The Dark Knight, played by Eric Roberts.

Gotham premieres this fall on Fox.

The Red Hood Lives in Batman: Arkham Knight

By Rob Siebert
Editor, Fanboy Wonder

Jason Todd, a.k.a. The Red Hood, may be making his debut in the “Arkhamverse” next year.

American gamers who order Batman: Arkham Knight via Gamestop will have access to exclusive character missions featuring the character, in addition to the ones already announced for Harley Quinn.

In the DC Comics Universe, The Red Hood was the criminal identity adopted by The Joker before the accident that turned him into a maniacal clown. In 2005, The Red Hood identity was taken up by Jason Todd. As a youngster Todd had succeeded Dick Grayson as Robin alongside Batman, but was tragically murdered by The Joker. When he returned from the dead, he took up his killer’s former moniker.

While it’s unclear whether the “Arkhamverse” version of The Red Hood will indeed be Jason Todd, the character’s appearance is indeed vaguely similar to the costume Jason currently wears in the comics.

Daniel Bryan Uses Chokehold to Catch Burglar

By Rob Siebert
Editor, Fanboy Wonder

As a would-be thief found out this weekend, Daniel Bryan’s arsenal of wrestling maneuvers can be utilized both inside and outside the ring.

Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella, the real life Bryan and Brianna Danielson, were returning to their home in Phoenix, Arizona late this past Thursday when they discovered two burglars attempting to break into their home using rocks.

When Danielson  gave chase, he was able to catch 22-year-old Cesar Sosa and subdue him in a rear naked choke until police arrived. The second burglar escaped.

At a subsequent news conference, Danielson said Sosa was “very tired and it literally took zero effort to take him down,” later adding he was “borderline ashamed” for taking matters into his own hands, and was happy nothing bad had happened.

Danielson would later tell WWE.com: ”We’re lucky because we had multiple neighbors calling the cops…There are a lot of people watching out for each other in this community.”
