It’s already been reported how much news came out of the Marvel Television panel at San Diego Comic Con (and it’s only day one). This piece is something that many already knew was coming, but now it’s been confirmed. A third season for Daredevil is definitely happening. However, with other shows like Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders also in the works, the big question is when will the third season of Daredevil premiere on Netflix? Only time will tell.

It all started with Daredevil. Then came Jessica Jones. In a month, Luke Cage will be premiering with his best bud, Iron Fist, set to debut in 2017. It’s an probably an understatement to say that the Marvel Television panel tonight at San Diego Comic Con was pretty awesome. Fans got to see the teaser trailer for Luke Cage. It was followed up by a first look at Finn Jones as Iron Fist. But it was all a build up to the big reveal of the night, a teaser for The Defenders.

When news broke that Iron Fist and the rest of the Defenders were coming to Netflix people got excited. However, at the same time, it sparked a lot of discussion and controversy regarding how the show cast a white lead over an Asian actor. For now, the controversy remains but the heat is no longer there. Since then the show has moved on and during tonight’s Marvel Television panel at San Diego Comic Con, audiences got their first look at the upcoming series. And now is your chance to see it as well.

SDCC16: “Buckaroo Banzai” Moving In With Amazon

Earlier this year Clerks creator Kevin Smith spoke on his Hollywood Babble-On podcast, saying that “weird doors” started to open after his episode of The Flash aired. And apparently one of those weird doors led to a meeting with MGM and into talks about turning the cult flick The Adventures Of Buckaroo Banzai Across The 8th Dimension into a TV series. And if the rumors are true, the Banzai TV series may soon have found a landing bay with the quickly growing streaming giant Amazon. MGM and Amazon are rumored to be close to locking down a deal which would bring W.D. Richter and Earl Mac Rauch‘s 1984 cult classic sci-fi adventure comedy to the small screen.

Remember The Tick? You know, “Spooon!” If you don’t, let’s recap: Ben Edlund created The Tick in 1986 as a mascot, absurdist parody of superheros, which spun off into its own comic in 1988. After the popularity of the character rose (due, mostly, to be downright hilarious), he received a children’s animated cartoon on Fox in 1994.  His likability and fame rocketed ever higher, which resulted in a short-lived live action TV series in 2001, starring Patrick Warburton as the blue-clad crusader (and it was an honest-to-goodness perfect casting choice). After years of fan clamor for some sort of continuation or reboot, Amazon decided to step up to the plate. Now, at SDCC 2016, we’ve gotten word of a release.  (more…)

Ahh, the 1980s, when toys dictated the content of your television, and Saturday morning cartoons reigned supreme. One of the kings of weekend-morning comic machismo was He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, a show premised around Prince Adam channeling the power of the Castle Grayskull to unleash his inner barbarian (becoming He-Man), and battle the evils of the nefarious, skull-faced Skeletor. While a great success at the time, launching hundreds (if not thousands) of toys, various comic books, and even a (terrible) movie starring Dolph Lundgren, He-Man has not shared much of the nostalgic-based revival success of other 80s cartoons like G.I. Joe or Transformers, the closest it has come was an attempted revival series in 2002, which ran for two seasons, and an internet meme nearly a decade back. Despite this, He-Man (especially the 80s cartoon) still has quite a cult following, and it looks those fans will be rewarded at this year’s SDCC. (more…)

In Gotham‘s two seasons so far, only a handful of Batman’s most famous bad guys have yet to receive a proper, convoluted origin story in the prequel series, but one of those villains is finally going to get the spotlight in the upcoming third season of the Fox series. In advance of San Diego Comic Con, in which Gotham will, as usual, be a participant, the show is announcing that they’ve found a Mad Hatter, the Lewis Carroll-inspired rogue that first appeared in Batman comics in the 1940s and has been one of the most constantly evolving of the Batman villains over the last seven decades. Now he’ll be played by a familiar face from The Walking Dead. (more…)

Netflix Announces New Show-Sharing Feature: Flixtape

Once upon a time, when people watched TV, they had to be there in front of the box at the exact time it was being broadcast, or else they missed it. Potentially forever. Someone would have to tell you what had happened in the last episode if you wanted to make sense of the next one and, maybe, one day, you might be able to see it as a repeat. Though that may be many years in the future. Today, we don’t have those kinds of problems. Almost everything is available on catch up – and that’s if it was ever broadcast at all, rather than exclusively streamed online. (more…)
