"Wonder Woman" to be Set in the 1920s? - “Wonder Woman” isn’t set to hit theaters until June 2017, but the rumors are already starting. According to Bleeding Cool, the movie is going to be set in the 1920s...The first half of the film will be set on Paradise Island. Then a man will show up and ask the Amazons for help. Wonder Woman will leave with this man – who’s not necessarily Steve Trevor – and come into the 1920s.  She’ll then explore a world where women have just been granted suffrage from the perspective of someone who just left an all-female society...The second film in the trilogy will be set in World War Two, and the third film will be in the modern day/Justice League era. So far, no stars are attached to the project.

Top 10 Things You Probably Didn't Know About "The Walking Dead"

    The word zombie is never used: Walkers, herds, biters, even the undead is used but never zombies. Why? Producers wanted             to create a world where people were completely unprepared for the situation coming their way.

    There's a real Terminus. Well, there was. Back in 1830's, the settlement at the end of the Western and Atlantic Railroad was       called Terminus. Now, however, we call it Atlanta.

    During the past five seasons, the walkers have been deteriorating and getting paler, showing time has passed.

    The actor who plays Carl, Chandler Riggs, is a 15-year-old boy. His stand in, Ashley, is a 31-year-old woman.

    You can own Daryl's bow. Walmart sells the Horton Scout HD 125 for around $300.

    The flesh walkers eat is ham. Originally it was covered in BBQ sauce to make it more edible for extras, but the ingredients       were ruining the actors make up so they there's no more sauce.

    There are separate eating areas for the living and the dead on set. Producers want the groups to feel segregated and as far apart    from each other as possible.

    Season three almost took place in a school. Until producers found the prison location, a high school was going to be used as a           primary location for the heroes

    In the world of the show, walkers outnumbered the living by five-thousand to one.

    Extras who play walkers are told to move like they're leaving a bar at 2am and be completely silent. All the noises you hear      are added in post production.

Jon Stewart was Considered for "Meet the Press" - NBC has been desperate to save “Meet the Press.” They were even considering Jon Stewart for the job. Rumor has it that they were willing to offer “The Daily Show” host anything to replace David Gregory...Now Stewart is confirming the rumor. He told Rolling Stone, “My guess is they were casting as wide and as weird a net as they could. I’m sure part of them was thinking, ‘Why don’t we just make it a variety show?'” Stewart went on to say, “I felt like that was one of those situations where someone says, ‘We really like what you do. Why don’t you come over here and do something different, maybe something you don’t do as well, for us?’” He ultimately turned them down....NBC announced in August that Chuck Todd would take over the gig. Unfortunately, after almost two months, he hasn’t brought in any impressive ratings, either.
