That’s right. The Princess Of Effing Power is coming to Netflix. The 80’s cartoon that saw moderate success as a the spin-off of He-Man is being rebooted by DreamWorks with the creator of Lumberjanes spear-heading the project. DreamWorks could give us a solid reboot for a beloved cartoon that sorely needs the update. Familiar names lend their voices to the series and gives us hope for the future of She-Ra. (more…)
Amazon issued a press release in November 2017 confirming the acquisition of global television rights for The Lord of The Rings and its intent to produce a prequel series with a multiseason commitment.

As you’re no doubt aware, Deadpool 2 is currently playing at a cinema near you. And without giving too much away – particularly because it’s been featured in enough of the film’s promotional material – Ryan Reynolds’s latest turn as the merc-with-a-mouth also marks the first feature film appearance of the bad boys (and girls) of Xavier’s School for Gifted Children, X-Force. More than a fair share of you will know all about X-Force, but for many of us, the characters included in Deadpool’s first team outing may well be complete unknowns. Let’s fix that… (more…)
The CW CEO Mark Pedowitz makes an announcement on Lucifer and the Supernatural spin-off Wayward Sisters, riling up fans about the fate of the shows. The CW also laid down some bittersweet news for iZombie fans while shaking up the schedules for the DC superhero shows.
In Detective Comics #233 (July 1956) a new character joined the pantheon of characters. DC introduced a female counterpart to Batman, Batwoman. Originally created to be a love interest for Batman who had a utility purse instead of the belt Batman wore. She had weapons disguised as feminine products such as lipstick, compacts, charm bracelets and hairnets. The character was removed from the series when Batgirl/Barbara Gordon was created. But Kathy Kane would return to the comics, and now it looks like she’ll be coming to TV screens too.
Daredevil is the show that launched Marvel’s hefty presence on Netflix. With a dark and grimy street-level aesthetic, it and the other Marvel shows on the streaming service provide a grounded counterpoint to most of Marvel’s cinematic universe. Daredevil went back to basics with a story arc that borrowed liberally from Frank Miller’s iconic stints at the helm of the comic and over time many of the characters Miller either created or made his own have appeared in the show. One in particular though has largely been absent. Until now. If reports are true, the show may have its Bullseye. (more…)
Okay, by now, it’s fairly safe to assume you know who Marvel’s fourth-wall-breaking Canadian mutant merc-with-a-mouth, Deadpool, is. If not, he’s the star of a whole tonne of comic books, a video game and not one, but two, of his own eponymous films. Of course, that’s not enough for Mr Pool (aka Wade Wilson). Nope, Deadpool, with a little help from his tireless promo team, is branching out into other films. (more…)
Most fans of Star Wars felt that the force was strong with the newest installment Solo: A Star Wars Story when they heard that Donald Glover was taking on the role of Lando Calrissian. Until that moment no one believed anyone could step into the shoes of Colt 45 ad man, Billie Dee Williams. The film isn’t even out yet, but word is that Lando will soon have his own film. (more…)
