This is a WAY overdue recap video but here it is anyways! I attended the inaugural Heroes & Villains Fan Fest in San Jose back in November. It did have its kinks here and there but hey, it’s their first year and things picked up by the second day. If you are considering going or if this is your first time even hearing about it, Google it. See if it’s coming to a city near you because it’s honestly one of the best cons I’ve been to.

Celebrity Crush: Colton Haynes

If you follow me on social media (shameless plug) then you MUST know about my massive crush on the beautiful creature that is Colton Haynes. Honestly, my heart beats just typing his name and I may seem like a crazed fan but WHO CAN DENY HIS BEAUTIFULNESS?

Haynes came on my radar after…I don’t even know, honestly. You’ll probably know him from My Chemical Romance’s music video, Roy Harper on Arrow or Jackson Whittemore on Teen Wolf. OR, you might even know him from his EPIC Halloween costumes:

Let’s just say, he slays at Halloween.

ANYWAY. Behind all that Halloween makeup lies a beautiful man. FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, he can model, act and SING. Yes, SING. Even if you don’t like country music, I recommend you watching this video that just MIGHT change your mind:

 

He’s just as nerdy as us too. Do you remember that time he won the internet when he live-tweeted sitting next to an awkward couple having their first date?

Or, how about that time where he reminded us he’s just like us who needs his beauty rest?

Either way. It’s hard not to love a down-to-earth guy like Colton Haynes. Even his name is beautiful. Let me just hit you with some GIFs that will get you to swoon.

ch03

He even makes looking healthy while seeking revenge seem cool.

ch04

Even annoyed Colton is hard to resist.

ch05

Yep. That’s true.

For everyone who didn’t know about Colton Haynes but now are pretty much in love with him like me… Welcome to the dark side.

Why You Should Be Watching ‘The Flash’!

To be honest, I didn’t grow up reading comic books or keep track of the latest superhero creation. They were never of any interest to me — until now. Is it just me, or does anyone else notice there are way more shows based on a superhero than ever before? If it isn’t a TV show, your favorite villain or hero might be in a movie. Anyway, the point is, I’ve slowly geeked out over the years and I’ve become a fan of comic book heroes. Continue reading

In the world of bada$$ fantasy and comic characters, Manu Bennett stands alone…and not just because his on-screen alter egos probably terminated everyone else in the room! Bennett, who currently stars as Slade Wilson aka “Deathstroke” in Arrow and Azog in The Hobbit Trilogy, has a fan base as big as his heart (off-screen, that is). The Daily Quirk met up with the much beloved anti-hero at Megacon where he invited excited fans to come be part of our interview as we discussed his role on Arrow, bringing Azog to life and his die-hard fanbase. Check out the exclusive interview below!

When I spoke to Celina Jade for this interview, she had just landed in Hong Kong after jumping on the first available flight from Vancouver where she’s been filming Arrow. She had two weeks before she had to film her next scenes for the show and instead of catching up on some rest and relaxation, she decided to get to China as quickly as possible to rehearse for an upcoming musical she’ll be starring in during the short break she’ll have between when season one of Arrow wraps and filming for season two begins. I asked if she would like to reschedule our chat, but she graciously and enthusiastically replied there was no need to reschedule and that she was excited to be talking about her upcoming projects. That right there sums up the impression I got of Ms. Jade while speaking with her. Continue reading
