Forget Movie! McFarlane Now Talking About New ‘Spawn’ Animated Series

- 10-24-14Cartoons, Comics Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

You hear the words “Todd McFarlane” and “Spawn” you might think that you’re about to get a vague and random update about the live-action Spawn movie reboot. Not today. Today, McFarlane is shedding light in a not-so vague way on the in-the-works Spawn animated series reboot. Yes, there is a new Spawn animated series coming. The original ran on HBO for three years between 1997 and 1999. It was a hard-R rated animated series, and perhaps much more representative of the style and tone of the McFarlane comic book than the 1997 movie ever was. But can lightening strike twice so far as Spawn animated shows are concerned? Well, the concept art release so far leans in the direction of a definite “yes.” (more…)

Jaime Lannister Takes a Different Path in ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 5

One of the more interesting things about shows like AMC‘s The Walking Dead and HBO‘s Game of Thrones is how the stories change from the written form to the small screen. Characters live, die and go in all kinds of directions that book reading fans never expected. The trick though, is to make those changes work within the framework of the overall story. Both The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones have been handling these changes quite well. Next season in Game of Thrones we’re going to see another character, Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) go off in a different direction from the written page and we’ve got some spoilery details here.

There was a lot of controversy over the upcoming Cersei (Lena Headey) nude scene in George R. R. Martin’s Game of Thrones season 5. Things got so hot that the local church denied the production the rights to film the scene on church property. Then HBO was able to work out a deal and the scene was back on. Those that have read the book know what I’m talking about, but those you relying on the HBO show to give you all the details should stop right here. Consider yourself spoiler warned.

Colin Farrell Confirmed to be a ‘True Detective’ for Season 2

It’s taken a long time, and there’s been an awful lost of speculation up to this point, but now there’s been a semi-official announcement concerning the cast of True Detective season 2. You can hardly blame any actor in Hollywood for the hesitancy, True Detective was the smash success of winter and a new prestige hit for HBO, a network known for prestige hits. All that, and the fact that Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson are going to be a tough act to follow, would scare even the boldest of actors from being the follow-up act in the new season. But fortune, as they say, favors the bold, and Colin Farrell hopes that this is the case because he says he’s just signed up to lead True Detective season 2. (more…)
