We’ve been in an Adam West-less world for a little less than a week, and as the tributes and memorials continue to roll out, fans can seek solace in seeing the actors remaining work released posthumously. West, who passed away on the 10th of June after a far too brief battle with leukemia at the age of 88, earned his iconic status by not only being everyone’s first Batman, but also by making numerous appearances that often served as an endearing little wink to his status in pop-culture.
Last March it was announced that West would be appearing on NBC’s DC Comics superhero meta-comedy Powerless, however the show was canceled before the episode aired. In true heroic fashion, DC Entertainment has made the episode, titled “Win, Luthor, Draw,” available for a limited time and you can watch it below. (more…)
It is no secret that die-hard fans of Vertigo’s blasphemous/hilarious comicbook, Preacher, were a little less than pleased with the tone and direction of the AMC TV adaption. Writer Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon book was well known for being a weird mix of the irreverent and the bizarre. The Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg produced TV show? Not so much.
That is, until now.
The season 2 trailer just dropped and as you can see for yourself, the series appears to be embracing its comicbook roots a little more earnestly: (more…)
A few days back Heroic Hollywood‘s head honcho, Umberto Gonzalez, revealed that a new intro for the DC Extend Universe will debut before Wonder Woman (he was asked about it on twitter and he replied “CONFIRMED! It’s 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥” so yes there is a new intro and I am guessing 5 fires is a good thing? Bad? Should someone dial 9-1-1?) Now just hours away from the early screenings of the new DCEU film a it has apparently leaked online. (more…)
The early to mid 90’s was a golden era for animation. We had ducks with tales and dark wings, there were ancient Scottish gargoyles protecting New York (from Commander Riker, no less,) heck even the Simpson’s wasn’t completely terrible yet. In those hyper-color™ halcyon days, Warner Bros. had an amazingly successful run with the likes of the animated adventures of Batman, Superman, and even a unique twist on their Looney Tunes stable with Tiny Toon Adventures. It truly was the a great time for cartoons.
Decades later, WB’s (and humanities,) greatest cartoon might be making it’s return. So just sit back and relax because it just might be time for more Animaniacs! (more…)

For the past few weekends the majority of the free world appears to have made it’s way to the cinema to take in that smarmy spaceman/baby-tree/laser trash-panda epic, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is still at the top of the box office and the James Gunn directed cosmic comicbook action/comedy has been universally regarded as both captivating and crowd pleasing. Well, except for one person apparently. (more…)
Because life is weird sometimes, it sounds like Disney is facing down real life honest to goodness pirates (NOT the “yaar, matey” ones, but internet hacker types,) and a threat to release the first 20 minutes of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales weeks before the film’s release at the end of the month.

A lone starship venturing out into the final frontier, her crew bedecked in brightly coloured uniforms. A menagerie of humans and aliens, the best a collective civilized worlds has to offer on a voyage of discovery and adventure.
Now with toilet jokes!
Yes, while Star Trek Discovery is still MIA, sophomore humor specialist and huge Star Trek nerd, Seth MacFarlane‘s dropped the trailer for The Orville, a one-hour sci-fi comedy about the trials and tribulations of a second rate crew trying to forge their destiny among the star, maybe. (more…)
We’ve known for a very very (very) long time that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson (famously from Fast and Furious and infamous for The Tooth Fairy,) will star as the immortal Egyptian anti-hero in the someday coming
Captain Marvel Shazam/Black Adam movie that is apparently still someday coming, but who’d be playing the good guy that the former wrestler turned actor’s bad guy? Well Mr. The Rock Johnson, who is also reportedly producing the film, did give a not so subtle hint to We Got This Covered on who he’d want to see suited up as the scarlet draped acronym powered hero. (more…)
After four decades in print and two big screen releases it looks like the faceless lantern jawed lawman from a dystopian future city, Judge Dredd, has his sites set on the small screen next. While there is still no sign of a sequel to 2012’s Dredd (which stared Karl Urban) hitting the big screen anytime soon, Rebellion (who publishes the comic magazine 2000 AD) is teaming up with studio IM Global to produce a “big-budget” TV series based on the futuristic lawman’s escapades.
Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Dredd producers (and brothers) Chris and Jason Kingsley are working with Mark Stern (who developed the rebooted Battlestar Galactica) to bring the character to an undetermined network or streaming service, saying that the project is in “early development” and “talent will be announced at a later date.” (more…)
