Two days ago, we held a poll to see which fandoms are the top 10, according to our readers. You’ve all voted for your favorite fandoms to be included in the next round of BattleShips, so let’s find out which fandoms are going to the next round!

We here at Hypable have decided to undertake the sizable task of finding out which ship (that’s “fictional relationship” to the uninitiated) from a current television show is the most popular!

But rather than just doing a single poll with 10,000 choices, we decided to make it a bit more fun! Thus, BattleShips was born. In this tournament, you will help to slowly narrow down the categories, until one ship is left victorious.

In the first round, you picked the top 10 television fandoms that will go on to the next stage of the tournament. Let’s find out what shows made the cut!

Your top 10 fandoms are…

1. Castle (1,211 Votes)
2. Doctor Who (1,039 Votes)
3. Sherlock (976 Votes)
4. Once Upon A Time (956 Votes)
5. Glee (950 Votes)
6. Teen Wolf (741 Votes)
7. Big Bang Theory (679 Votes)
8. How I Met Your Mother (649 Votes)
9. Game of Thrones (610 Votes)
10. Merlin (585 Votes)

Well, look at that. The top 10 fandoms, as voted by you, are actually a bit surprising! These are going to be the top 10 fandoms going on to the next round, where you will vote for the specific ships in each show. Look out for the polls through-out the next four weeks, and be sure to vote for your OTP!

What’s next?

Well, that’s the easy part! Throughout the next few weeks we will be voting for the individual ships for each television show in the tournament. Because now that the top television series have been found, we need to find the top ship in each fandom.

Very soon, we will begin this second stage of the tournament, so stay alert. For each television series that made it past the preliminaries, there will be one poll, where it will be YOUR task to choose the #1 relationship from that show. That’s right, only one may proceed to the next stage, so choose wisely.

Be sure to keep checking our site, as well as our Facebook and Twitter to stay updated on which fandom is going up next. The top 16 ships (one from each fandom) as chosen by you will go off in a bracket style tournament, and in the end a victor shall emerge triumphant and proud!

…wait, you said 16?

Yes! These polls were so close that we wanted to give the other popular fandoms a shot. There was literally one vote separating Merlin from Supernatural, so we had to include it! And to make the bracket style more even for the later rounds, we decided to go with the top 16 instead of a top 15. Check out the rest of the qualifiers below!

11. Supernatural (584 Votes)
12. The Vampire Diaries (581 Votes)
13. New Girl (545 Votes)
14. Downton Abbey (463 Votes)
15. Avatar (420 Votes)
16. Bones (379 Votes)

We’re going to be doing the shipping battles randomly through-out the week, so you never know when your favorite show’s OTP will be up for their chance in the spotlight. Keep checking, commenting, and voting for your favorite ship!

Director James Gunn confirms the name of a Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 creature with the release of some concept art from the film.

The Guardians of the Galaxy have been pretty busy lately while they gear up for Vol. 2. On Friday we learned that they’ll be showing up in Avengers: Infinity War, and tonight we got a sneak peek of a creature the team will be taking on in the GotG sequel.

Taking to Twitter, Gunn showed off a piece of concept art created by Andy Park.

In his replies, he names the creature and states that, no, they aren’t fighting in space.

Then taking to Facebook, Gunn replied to fans who had questions about the image.

An updated synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 reads:

“Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.”

So it looks like for those who were lucky enough to see GotG 2 footage at San Diego Comic-Con this year, you’ve already seen this guy in action.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ lands in theatres on May 5, 2017

Maisie Williams freaks out over ‘Game of Thrones’ season 7 scripts

"Nothing will prepare you for this."

7:45 pm EDT, August 22, 2016

Maisie Williams finished reading the scripts for Game of Thrones season 7, and totally lost her sh*t on Twitter.

Williams, who plays Arya Stark, is no stranger to shocking moments on the HBO epic fantasy series. But it seems like the events of Game of Thrones‘ penultimate season are so intense, even the seasoned young actress is left flabbergasted.

Earlier this evening, Williams summarized her experience of reading the Game of Thrones season 7 scripts on her Twitter feed. Suffice to say, the stream reads something like a thrillingly ominous preview of what fans will experience when the show returns next year.

Maisie Williams finished reading the scripts for Game of Thrones season 7, and totally lost her sh*t on Twitter.

Williams, who plays Arya Stark, is no stranger to shocking moments on the HBO epic fantasy series. But it seems like the events of Game of Thrones‘ penultimate season are so intense, even the seasoned young actress is left flabbergasted.

Earlier this evening, Williams summarized her experience of reading the Game of Thrones season 7 scripts on her Twitter feed. Suffice to say, the stream reads something like a thrillingly ominous preview of what fans will experience when the show returns next year.

At first, Williams warned fans to steel themselves for the epic events to come.

…but apparently, no amount of mental toughness will be enough for season 7.

To summarize, Game of Thrones fans the world over are now sizzlingly jealous of Maisie Williams… and also, apparently, well and truly screwed.

With George R.R. Martin’s next installment in A Song of Ice and Fire still achingly absent, there’s almost no way to predict the major events of Game of Thrones season 7. Our only theory is that we should probably say goodbye to the feelings we managed to resuscitate after Jon Snow came back to life.

Williams isn’t the only member of the cast hinting at madness to come. Maisie’s on-screen sister Sophie Turner revealed that she too had advance knowledge while pondering Sansa’s future.

“I’ve actually just got the scripts for seven,” Turner tells Variety. “So I don’t want to say too much, because I’ll probably end up slipping some truths out!”

Seven forbid, Sophie. Seven forbid.

Game of Thrones season 7 will air some time in 2017, but not soon enough.

What madness do you think ‘Game of Thrones’ season 7 has in store?

Netflix adapting ‘Anne of Green Gables’ for new TV series with additional themes

Anne Shirley is returning to our screens!

2:45 pm EDT, August 22, 2016

L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables book series is being adapted for television by Netflix and Canadian network CBC.

The new series will begin filming next month in Ontario, Canada. Though CBC will be airing it in America’s neighbor to the north, Netflix will be distributing it in the United States and the rest of the world.

Breaking Bad writer and producer Moira Walley-Beckett is penning the entire eight-episode series and will run the show. It is expected to air on the CBC in 2017, and presumably it’ll run on Netflix around the same.

L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables book series is being adapted for television by Netflix and Canadian network CBC.

The new series will begin filming next month in Ontario, Canada. Though CBC will be airing it in America’s neighbor to the north, Netflix will be distributing it in the United States and the rest of the world.

Breaking Bad writer and producer Moira Walley-Beckett is penning the entire eight-episode series and will run the show. It is expected to air on the CBC in 2017, and presumably it’ll run on Netflix around the same.

The eight-book Anne of Green Gables series has been adapted numerous times over the years (including the well-known, two-part 1985 televised miniseries), but this will arguably be the biggest adaptation to date thanks to the potential audience Netflix could pull in.

According to Deadline, “the coming-of-age series will focus on a young girl who, after an abusive childhood spent in orphanages and the homes of strangers, is mistakenly sent to live with an elderly spinster and her aging brother. Over time — and thanks to her unique spirit, fierce intellect and brilliant imagination — 13-year-old Anne will transform their lives and eventually the small town in which they live.”

The new adaptation “will honor the foundation of the book, but will incorporate new adventures reflecting themes of identity, sexism, bullying, prejudice, and trusting one’s self.”

The series will be set in 1890. The first book was published in 1908 by Lucy Maud Montgomery and has gone on to sell over 50 million copies worldwide.
