‘Daredevil’ Casts Its Stick In New ‘Grounded, Gritty’ Netflix TV Series!

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.

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…)

From casting rumors to potential locales to the barest hint of plot details, Star Wars Episode VII has been one of the most talked about movies in years, and with good cause.  The franchise that the majority of us love so much is finally returning to its roots and will feature the characters that helped us all fall in love with the Wars saga in the first place.  In addition to giving fans a new entry in our beloved franchise, Disney has also promised a few stand-alone spinoff films over the next few years and since the announcement, many have been wondering just what these spinoffs would be about.  Could we see a young Han Solo in a stand-alone flick?  Perhaps we will have the chance to watch a young Boba Fett grow into a bounty hunter that has a penchant for disintegrations.  Today, a new rumor has emerged that may give us a real answer.  We may have to wait a while to get any sort of hint from the studio but if the folks over at Making Star Wars truly do have a man on the inside, one of those spinoffs will focus on everyone’s favorite hermit, Obi-Wan Kenobi.

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

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…)
