In the spirit of foreshadowing famous events with tales of history, ‘Gotham’ is a series that aims to tell new stories with old characters. Before Bruce Wayne was Batman, his stomping grounds preceded them both. And with our familiar hero in short pants, the tales yet to come have their work cut out for them. Can this show possibly be as compelling as the as the future spawned from its depiction? Absolutely not. Batman is awesome for a dozen reasons and this series will never catch that shooting star. We all know that and accept it and may enjoy the show thanks to the magic of lowered expectations. With that, Fox continues to beguile us with surprisingly effective trailers. The newest comes to us in the form of a preview for fans in the United Kingdom. Clickity click, you magnificent bat-stards! (more…)

Adding to a kick ass heroine repertoire that already includes Wonder Woman and G.I. Joe‘s Lady Jaye, actress Adrienne Palacki is bringing her skills to a new role on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Who will she be playing? Well, I’ll assume you read the headline and say again that she’s playing Bobbi Morse, AKA: Mockingbird. The character was name dropped in Marvel’s TV panel at San Diego Comic Con, but what was at the time assumed to be an Easter egg is actually a major guest role for the fifth episode of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s second season.

Don’t Worry, Warner Bros Has Plans for Harley Quinn

When Harley Quinn first appeared in the an early episode of Batman: The Animated Series called “The Joker’s Favor,” she was an instant hit with fans. Like a couple of aspects of TAS, Harley eventually made her way to the mainstream DC Comics universe where she has flourished, appearing in numerous comic book series, including her own solo book. So it should really come as no surprise that the character is so highly in demand for those working on DC properties in other media, like, say Arrow. But if you’re waiting for Stephen Amell’s archery-friendly vigilante to face off against Mr. J’s Girl Friday, you’re going to be sadly out of luck. (more…)

It looks like Playstation’s Powers is getting some of the last big pieces into place. The most recent bit of news is that Sharlto Copley, likely best known for his role in District 9, will be playing the lead of Christian Walker. Walker is one of the two primary characters in the comic series from Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming, which the show will be an adaptation of.

Ok, so who remembers the teen movie entitled ‘Not Another Teen Movie? I don’t because I don’t watch corny stuff. But let’s imagine that somebody wanted to build off the fad of those parody movies and pitched ‘Not Another High School Show‘ for television. It was developed in 2007 and a pilot was shot for Comedy Central but it wasn’t picked up. The show was allegedly supposed to include individual sketches, an example of which somebody found in a trashcan and put on YouTube. It’s called ‘Muffy The Vampire Slayer’ and holy cats are you in for it. Not to dissect it too deeply before you’ve watched the clip, but let’s just say that it starred Alison Brie in the title role. Oh, and Jennifer Lawrence pops in for a few seconds too. Wait a minute, this sounds awesome… (more…)
