OK, who's greeting us this week? None other than Naya Rivera! Naya's been in the headlines recently but she slipped into a teeny thong bikini and posed for a couple of snapshots beside a pool at some tropical locale. The actress uploaded the photos to her Instagram with the caption "Nailing it."
Reports have been circulating that Rivera was axed from Glee after a feud with co-star Lea Michele. A Billboard story later claimed she was also dropped from her label, Columbia Records. Her rep denied both reports.
Last week Emma Stone took on Bryce Dallas Howard. Here are the results:
Emma Stone 72.19%
Bryce Dallas Howard 27.81%
You made it pretty clear who floats your boat when it comes to Gwen Stacy. Emma wins this win easily. This week gives us two 411mania staples. Coco and UFC's Arianny Celeste. Both of them regularly post photos to their Instagram so I grabbed two and will let you vote on who looks better.

WHAT THE HELL?
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Reg E. Cathey has been cast as Dr. Franklin Storm, the father of Sue (Kate Mara) and Johnny Storm (Michael B. Jordan) in the reboot of The Fantastic Four. At this time, it is unknown which origin they will use for Dr. Franklin Storm. In the original comic series, Dr. Storm was accused of murder and thought to be dead. He actually operated on and saved his daughter's life when she suffered a life threatening injury at the hands of the Mole Man. In Marvel's "Ultimate" universe, Dr. Storm is partially responsible for the creation of the Fantastic Four.
The film opens on June 19th, 2015 and stars Jamie Bell, Jordan, Mara and Miles Teller as the Fantastic Four, Toby Kebbell as Victor Von Doom and Tim Blake Nelson as Harvey Elder, aka The Mole Man.

SuperHeroHype recently spoke with X-Men: Days of Future Past writer and producer Simon Kinberg at the New York press junket this week about the future of franchise and X-Men: Apocalypse. The next sequel is due out on May 27, 2016.
Kinberg stated on the film:
"We want to tell the Apocalypse story and there's massive scale and scope to telling that story. There's going to be set pieces that I suspect are going to be bigger than anything we've ever done in an X-Men movie before and he's a great character. The biggest and funnest challenge of the Apocalypse movie to me is his character. How do you create a new villain for the X-Men world that is as good as any villain that's come before, is compelling philosophically as Magneto, not just in his physical powers, but in his philosophical depth. 'Apocalypse' is going to be a fun movie to write and make."

In movie reboot news, Will Ferrell and Anchorman director Adam McKay will executive produce a new Flintstones movie at Warner Bros. The studio will bring The Flintstones back as an animated feature, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Chris Henchy has already signed on to write the script.
The Flintstones fans will remember that the franchise first ran as a cartoon sitcom from 1960 to 1966, and Steven Spielberg produced a live-action movie in 1994 starring John Goodman, Elizabeth Perkins, Rick Moranis and Rosie O'Donnell. The film pulled in more than $130 million in North America. Seth MacFarlane previously tried to launch a revamped Flintstones television show at Fox, but reports claimed the network wasn't wowed by the script and shut down the project back in 2012.
Now it looks like Ferrell and his comedy buds will have no trouble getting this done.
Yabba Dabba Dooooo!
Comics on TV!!
Networks announced that they're picking up three different shows based on DC and Vertigo properties: Constantine on NBC, iZombie and The Flash on The CW. With Arrow headed into its third season at The CW and Gotham already in production at Fox, this fall will be filled with hour-long dramas based on DC Comics.
The Flash. Here's The CW's official synopsis of the series:
Barry Allen is a Central City assistant police forensics investigator who arrives in Starling to look into a series of unexplained robberies that may have a connection to a tragedy in his past. A comic book fanboy, Barry is obsessed with the Arrow unaware that working with Oliver and Felicity to solve the crime has brought him right into the dangerous world of the vigilante.
CAST: Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin, Rick Cosnett, Danielle Panabaker, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdes, Tom Cavanaugh, John Wesley Shipp, Michelle Harrison, Patrick Sabongui
TEAM: Greg Berlanti (w, ep), Andrew Kreisberg (w, ep), Geoff Johns (w), David Nutter (d, ep), Sarah Schechter (ep)
iZombie. This one deviates quite a bit from Chris Roberson and Mike Allred's cult favorite comic:
A med student-turned-zombie takes a job in the coroner's office to gain access to the brains she must reluctantly eat to maintain her humanity, but with each brain she consumes, she inherits the corpse's memories. With the help of her medical examiner boss and a police detective, she solves homicide cases in order to quiet the disturbing voices in her head.
CAST: Rose McIver, Malcolm Goodwin, Alexandra Krosney, David Anders, Robert Buckley, Nora Dunn, Ruhul Kohli
TEAM: Rob Thomas (w, ep), Diane Ruggiero (w, ep), Danielle Stokdyk (ep), Dan Etheridge (ep)
Based on the wildly popular comic book series Hellblazer from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan) specializes in causing hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wicked wit, he fights the good fight. Sorta. With his soul damned to hell, he's decided to leave his do-gooder life behind, but when demons target Liv (Lucy Griffiths), the daughter of one of Constantine's oldest friends, he's reluctantly thrust back into the fray – and he'll do whatever it takes to save her. Deadline reports that NBC may not have fully been on-board for Constantine, stating that it wasn't "universally liked" by the network. Expect this one to get a short leash and a big need to produce ratings early.
Which one are you most excited for?
Oh, Kim! Kim Kardashian is a changed woman. Ever since she and Kanye West welcomed their first child back in June 2013, Kim's said she's discovered that motherhood has changed her and her perception of the world. In a post written on her personal blog, the 33-year-old revealed that she has concerns about raising a mixed-race child, and recognizes that racism is still a problem the world over.
"To be honest, before I had North, I never really gave racism or discrimination a lot of thought. It is obviously a topic that Kanye is passionate about, but I guess it was easier for me to believe that it was someone else's battle," she wrote on May 7. "But recently, I've read and personally experienced some incidents that have sickened me and made me take notice. I realize that racism and discrimination are still alive, and just as hateful and deadly as they ever have been."
Kardashian went on to write that as a mother, a public figure, and a human being she feels a responsibility to do what she can to make sure that not only her child, "but all children don't have to grow up in a world where they are judged by the color of their skin, or their gender, or their sexual orientation."
Kardashian wrote that she wants her daughter to grow up in a world where love for one another is the most important thing -- and she plans to take action:
"So the first step I'm taking is to stop pretending like this isn't my issue or my problem, because it is, it's everyone's… because the California teenager who was harassed and killed by his classmates for being gay, the teenage blogger in Pakistan who was shot on her school bus for speaking out in favor of women's rights, the boy in Florida who was wrongly accused of committing a crime and ultimately killed because of the color of his skin, they are all someone's son and someone's daughter and it is our responsibility to give them a voice and speak out for those who can't and hopefully in the process, ensure that hate is something our children never have to see."
Do you believe her intentions?
What's the VIDEO BUZZ?
Here is the first TV spot for Edge of Tomorrow. The film opens on June 6th and stars Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton, Jeremy Piven, Ciaran Hinds, Noah Taylor, Kick Gurry, Dragomir Mrsic, Charlotte Riley, Jonas Armstrong, Franz Drameh, Masayoshi Haneda and Tony Way.
The action unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world. Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop—forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again…and again. But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.
