When it was announced last week that Static Shock would be making its way onto television screens or digital download as a live action series, and my hand stopped making that “Hell Yeah!” fist pump in the air, I felt a cold shiver. What could cause that immediate change? My brain caught up with my emotions and asked the question that has started many a comic book store argument, “Who the heck are they going to cast…. Oh hell no, not Jaden Smith.” Well, it didn’t take long for someone out there to make the connection and start the discussion rolling. (more…)

If you watched the MLB All Star game on FOX last night, you got the added treat of a brand new Gotham trailer titled, The Good. The Evil. The Beginning. Despite my early reservations about a Batman television show without Batman, Gotham just keeps looking better and better. (more…)
We, along with the rest of the Internet, have focused a lot of attention on the Gotham character “The Comedian” played by Jon Beavers.

The network has picked up the show for an entire first season and is already promoting the hell out of this thing.
