NBC has not had a good track record when it’s come to super hero shows. Remember the wasted opportunity that was Heroes? Or how about The Cape, which was the exact type of show the superhero genre didn’t need. Then, when they did eventually get a superhero show right, and manage to create a fanbase with something like Constantine… they went and cancelled it. Tsk…tsk. Whoever at NBC is in charge of making creative decisions (we can only assume it’s a Dr. Claw type character sitting in an overly sized chair stroking a cat) clearly doesn’t know a thing about the comic book / superhero genre.  But to their credit, their aiming for a change-un’.

Coming in February, NBC will premier Powerless, the first situation comedy series set around the DC Universe. Moving on from there, NBC is jumping from one comic-verse to another.

That circus has been performing for more than 98 years (since 1919) across the country first as a traveling circus and then as it gained in popularity, sold out stadiums across the country. Sadly to say, the show will not go on.

Just when Ben thought he was out, Maul drags him back in. Seriously, didn’t he cut that dude in half? It’s hard not to be impressed how the animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels writers managed to bring back Darth Maul while keeping him so fraking cool. Now it looks like we’ll have a battle no one could have imagined back in 1999 as Darth Maul comes out of the desert to face his most hated enemy. (more…)

Hugh Jackman has been playing Wolverine for over 16 years now, with Logan being his eighth, and supposed final, time he puts on the claws. Jackman has said on multiple occasions that it’s been getting increasingly difficult to get into Wolverine shape, stating that Logan felt the perfect way to end his reign. So that’s that end of an era, right? Not if Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds gets his way. (more…)
