It's practically two months away until Season 7 and we get to see who buys the farm after that cliffhanger of a Season 6 finale for AMC's The Walking Dead, but now the entire Sixth Season is coming out for Blu-Ray and DVD at the end of the month, and one of the extras packed along with that home video release is the UNCENSORED version of Negan's introduction - the leader of The Saviours who wields a barbed wire baseball bat called "Lucille" and is picking who will die among Rick Grimes' group because they dared to defy the "new world order".
Via The Walking Dead - Best Moments YouTube page, here is the UNCENSORED SCENE which leaked online has a lot of cursing and stays true to the character - as portrayed by actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan in the critically acclaimed zombie drama TV Series.
The Walking Dead Season 6 will be out in Blu-Ray and DVD on August 30, and Season 7 will premiere on October 23 on AMC.

HOLY CLASSIC COVERS BATMAN~! Following the reveal of the very first teaser trailer for the upcoming animated film, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have revealed the cover and synopsis to "Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders" - which features Adam West and Burt Ward back to voicing Batman and Robin!
Here's the official synopsis (as seen in CosmicBookNews): "It’s back to the 1960s as Batman and Robin spring into action when Gotham City is threatened by a quartet of Batman’s most fiendish foes – Penguin, The Joker, Riddler and Catwoman. This time, the four Super-Villains have combined their wicked talents to hatch a plot so nefarious that the Dynamic Duo will need to go to outer space (and back) to foil their arch enemies and restore order in Gotham City. It’s a truly fantastic adventure that will pit good against evil, good against good, evil against evil … and feature two words that exponentially raise the stakes for both sides: Replicator Ray..Holy Multiplication Tables!"

The world already has a new Spider-Man for cinema with Tom Holland, who made his debut with this year's "Captain America: Civil War", but before the young man stepped to the plate and prior to Sony Pictures making a deal with Marvel to put the webhead in the MCU, there was Andrew Garfield... Who played Peter Parker/ Spider-Man in two films by Marc Webb in 2012 and 2014 respectively, and today is his birthday!
It's literally a shame that he could not wrap up his tenure as the wallcrawler properly after "The Amazing Spider-Man" and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2", but Garfield - who also starred in "The Social Network" has since moved on past his heroic identity to play other roles in film - including the upcoming Mel Gibson film "Hacksaw Ridge". He may not be Spidey anymore, but his time was fun nonetheless along with Emma Stone's Gwen Stacy! Happy Birthday, Andrew Garfield!
