Earlier this year he played alongside Denzel Washington, but even that seems a long time back at this point (as does his []

Drive Director Suggests Ryan Gosling’s Driver Might Return

Weeks 39 & 40 Pt. 2


Teen Titans #0 Red Robin I know I say this a lot, but I love Tim Drake.  This story has given him a lot of depth to his character and a strong bond to to Batman.  I mean that was just amazing.  The story development and how it flowed could have been a little more structured, I mean it felt a little jumpy but over all it was a great comic and I loved it.  This Teen Titans is way better than []
