Some may be disappointed that Neil Gaiman’s Sandman comic series isn’t getting a proper television series (instead being regulated to a 2-hour movie), but it looks like one of Morpheus’ co-stars is getting to move to the small screen instead. You may remember him from the ‘Season of Mists’ story arc (Sandman issues #21-28), though he has been present within the DC universe in one form or another since as far back as the early 60s. His name is Lucifer and this fallen angel is now the subject of a new pilot being produced for Fox. (more…)

It’s just seven more sleeps until Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns with all new adventures that will pit Agent Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his ragtag crew against a world that sees S.H.I.E.L.D. as the bad guy. We’ve seen a sneak peak, but now through the power of social media we get our first good look at next week’s season premiere. The show left a lot of dangling threads when it went on hiatus in May, and it seems as though S.H.I.E.L.D. is going to waste no time in dropping some new clues to those lingering mysteries. So what do the S.H.I.E.L.D. gang have in store for season 2? Let’s check it out. (more…)

When word made the Internet rounds that Ben Edlund confirmed a The Tick reboot was in development, everyone wanted to know one thing. Was Patrick Warburton coming back or would that role be recast?

Marvel released the first official plot synopsis for Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron earlier today. Don’t worry though, there’s not any smoking gun here. Nothing that spoils everything unless you’ve been on an Amish retreat in a remote ice cave in Antartica. It does set up the frame-work in which we can begin to speculate like demons though. Take a look after the jump. (more…)

‘Daredevil’ Casts Its Stick In New ‘Grounded, Gritty’ Netflix TV Series!

- 09-15-14Comics, TV Posted by Aspry Jones

STICK 1

When Marvel and Netflix came up with the idea for a Daredevil series, they tied that idea to a rocket and lit the fuse. All we’ve been hearing about it since have included casting news, set videos, story concepts, etc. It’s been an onslaught of information and it has done nothing but jazz up fans for this seemingly epic endeavor. While some efforts offer the occasional tidbit and leave you mostly in the dark, Daredevil has been barreling through its process, and made us part of it the whole way. As a champion of the theory that Marvel handles its properties better than any other studio, I have oodles of faith that this series will make us forget the Affleck travesty. Everything’s been spot on; from the projected tone to the casting. For example… (more…)

Hulk Fabricate! Lou Ferrigno Makes Wild Claim About Hulk’s On-Screen Future!

use this hulk

When Lou Ferrigno played the Hulk on television back in the 80’s, he was the biggest dude I’d ever seen at the time. I thought he was perfect for the role and just ignored the hair. Now, for some reason, it reminds me of Dexter Morgan’s do’ and I can’t get it out of my head. With matching eyebrows that could bring down The Leader all on their own, the big guy had massive success smashing stuff in slow motion week after week. Years later, he’d expand on his good relationship with Marvel by appearing in their films. He played a security guard in ‘The Incredible Hulk’ and went on to voice the character in the studio’s film incarnations. So, maybe he’s in the loop on their future projects. Maybe when he claims unsubstantiated plans for his former self, he knows what he’s talking about. Right? Right?? (more…)
