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? Now we’ve got an answer, or at least the hint of an answer that should allow fans to breath a little easier. (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…)

Seth Rogen And Duncan Jones Just Got People Excited For ‘Preacher’

Preacher is one of those properties that was kicked around Hollywood for years before a live action adaptation was finally snatched up by the unlikeliest of show runners: comedy masters Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.  Now that we know that the comic book adaptation has a home on AMC, questions about other aspects of the production have started to crop up in people’s minds.  To date, there have been no announcements that would give fans of the hit comic book series even a hint as to who would fill the shoes of Jesse Custer, the “Preacher” mentioned in the title, or who would be at the helm of the adaptation.  While it may not be anywhere near official, Seth Rogen and director Duncan Jones (the upcoming Warcraft) recently had a very interesting Twitter conversation about that exact subject.

‘Star Wars Rebels’ Clip: You Know Those Lightsabers That are, Like, Double Lightsabers…?

Star-Wars-Rebels-The-Inquisitor

When Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace came out, despite your feelings about the film, there was one thing we could all agree on: Darth Maul was awesome! Why? Because he had a double-edged lightsaber, yo! Too simplistic? Maybe, but it looks like in the new animated series Star Wars: Rebels, the creators are upping the game by giving the villainous Inquisitor not just a lightsaber, and not just a double-lightsaber, but a spinning double-lightsaber. Taking bad ass to a whole new level, the blow clip introduces The Inquisitor (voiced by Jason Isaacs) and and his twirling weapon of hot death.

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…)

TV Review: ‘Doctor Who’ – S08E04 – “Listen”

- 09-14-14Featured, reviews, TV Posted by Sarah Moran

doctor who listen review

What’s always made Doctor Who unique as well as enduring as a television show is its ability to constantly reinvent itself. From season to season, decade to decade, Doctor Who is allowed–no, expected to be something entirely different. Last week was a funny, charming romp in the past with Robin Hood and his Merry Men. This week we’re forced to face one of our oldest fears – what’s that under the bed? (more…)

What DC Comics Character Are Getting a Show? Hint: They Live in a Giant ‘T’

teentitans

It’s almost as if DC Comics and their parent studio Warner Bros. are ceding movie screens to Marvel Studios because today comes word of yet another DC-based TV project. Following quickly on the heels of the announcement of a Supergirl series being in development, and coming in advance of the premiere of four new DC Comics-based series and the third season premiere of Arrow, comes news that the Teen Titans might also be coming to TV screens everywhere. A pilot called Titans, which is based on the long-running superhero team that first appeared in the 1960s, is being developed for TNT, and if they like what they see, it could lead to an ongoing series about the team. But that’s the good news… (more…)

Sometimes the World of the Simpsons Gets Mixed Up with the World of the Simpsons

I see dead cartoon characters. Wait, that’s from the wrong movie, but the phrase is still relevant here.  FOX announced today that their annual “Treehouse of Horror” Halloween special will leave audiences  seeing dead people, or at least old poorly drawn people. Simpsons’ creators have a long tradition of  using their Halloween specials to spoof movies that are traditionally, and infamously, terrifying. With  the help of America’s most loved dysfunctional family, all of us get a chance to laugh at the things that go bump in the night. This year will be no different, except audiences are now promised double the  Simpsons in a segment set to parody yet another horror movie that forced us to question everything. (more…)

The ‘Married With Children’ Spinoff Nobody Expected…Can Now Be Expected.

- 09-11-14TV Posted by Aspry Jones

MARRIED 1

‘Married With Children’ was a sitcom on FOX and it told the story of failed shoe salesman Al Bundy, and his family: tacky wife Peg, slutty, idiot daughter Kelly, and loser son Bud. Its dysfunctional family tag team with ‘The Simpsons’ was a perfect way to waste a prime time hour. The show ended unceremoniously in 1997 after 11 strong years, but its finish was an abrupt one. No final episode, no goodbye, nothing. I took it personally because I was a big fan. But when the “family” got together for Katey Sagal’s (Peg) induction into the Hollywood Walk Of Fame, I was wowed to see how close the old gang still is. And it didn’t surprise me to later hear news of a possible formal TV reunion. (more…)
