Breathing old life into long overdone projects, How I Met Your Mother’s Final Season may lead into a spinoff. The proposed dragging on of a story that’s gone on long enough already would do a gender reversal and call itself How I Met Your Father. Awesome. More at Deadline.

The Simpsons has a great couch gag for its episode “4 Regrettings and a Funeral” that is all about The Hobbit. It’s pretty hilarious and entitled “Couch Gag: Part 1 of 6.” Seems they get director Peter Jackson’s penchant for extensions! More on Youtube

Batman ’66, the comic extension of the Adam Wood Batman television series, has been getting rave reviews and there’s an exclusive preview over at the AV Club. It looks like the Cold War is back with Olga, Queen of the Cossacks. More at The AV Club.

Cree activist Shannen Koostachin has inspired a new DC Indigenous superhero. The 15-year-old has led protests against the Canadian government about Indigenous education standards and has inspired Comic Book Bin favourite Jeff Lemire to create a new character. More on the CBC.

The Wrap has reported some details on the upcoming Ender’s Game adaptation that may help fans of the book who aren’t rampant homophobes. Apparently Card’s movie deal was a flat fee for the movie rights, he won’t be seeing any money from the movie’s profits. So basically, boycott the book (or get it used). More at The Wrap.
