Panthro is One Cool Cat!

Panthro made his singing debut on Jimmy  Fallon’s show last night. I haven’t been this excited about something ThunderCats in a long time. I want MORE! If your not watching Jimmy Fallon then you are really missing some creative and intelligent television. Get with the program you NerdBastards and watch the show!

Super Hero Round Up? All the little Superhero movie and news bits that you should know about, but just don’t make a full post on their own. So tighten up your belt, rub some dirt on your hands, and get ready for some fast and furious Superhero news!

 

Wonder Woman is making a comeback on Netflix:

The failed pilot from David E. Kelly, starring Adrianne Palicki, was never finished (thank gawd!) and axed before NBC could further embarrass themselves. However, word around the nerd water cooler is that it may become available on Netfllix.

User robolivera, from the DC Universe/Warner Brothers’ fan forum, posted about how he discovered this potential news:

I was looking for Captain America on Netflix to see what it said about a release date even though it’s not even out in the theaters yet. It has a picture of him with “NR” (Not Released) next to it…Then I searched for Lynda’s WW… It says NR too. BUT it has Adrianne Palicki’s Wonder Woman on there as well with NR next to it!!

He isn’t the only one though, as GloriaofGrayskull from the mattycollector forum also spotted this:

Today I searched for wonder woman on netflix site and it seems like they are going to release the new pilot in dvd I added it to my queve/list of dvds everyone add it so that there is high demand for it!

I think we all want to see the pilot episode, much like how we all just have to stop and look when we pass by a car crash. Morbid curiosity. Do these reports mean we’ll actually get to see it? Don’t get your hopes up. Netflix is notorious for listing shows and movies in advance in order to gauge interest. This is probably just one of those cases. This of course doesn’t mean that the show won’t ever be released as is, or get picked up by another network, or see an eventual release on Netflix. The point is, don’t expect the new “Wonder Woman” pilot/series to be actually available anytime soon.

Posted mere hours ago, the first trailer for Cartoon Network‘s upcoming Thundercats show is live. Uploaded to their official Facebook page the trailer is unfortunately un-embeddable. Hopefully as the day goes on we can rectify that, until then hop on over to their Facebook page to view. But then come back! I’ll wait.

Awesome, right? Exciting? Piqued your interest for when the series begins this summer? I hope so because it has Piqued mine. The CN is in desperate need of good action cartoons, particularly after cancelling Symbionic Titan (those fools!) and with Star Wars: The Clone Wars on break. I think Thundercats will be a hit. I’m really liking the look of the animation and, at least in this trailer, we see a lot of the ‘Cats in action on Thunderra. Meaning we’ll explore more of Thunderra and hopefully even meet more ‘Cats.

And what of those six? Well, obviously Lion-O is featured quite a bit, we see him taking the Sword of Omens and kicking a little kitty ass. Cheetara and Tygra are feature the most after him, they both are shown as capable fighters, teaming up with Lion-O for something. Sadly, we don’t see any Panthro in these clips. There  are quick looks at WilyKit, WilyKat and Snarf. Theres’s also no talking in this teaser, just a very exciting, cinematic score. Which if that’s where they’re heading with series’ music, I approve.

Hopefully we’ll get to hear some dialogue soon. Lion-O is voiced by Will Friedle, Tygra by Matthew Mercer, Cheetara by Emmanuelle Chriqui, and Panthro by Kevin Michael Richardson.

Of course, what we’re all waiting for is whether they’ll have a kick-ass theme song like the 80s cartoon did. I think it should be a requirement. And if they don’t use the classic theme at least get James Lipton to write the new one as well.

What do you guys think of the trailer? Pumped for new Thundercats or will this series never eclipse your love of the original?
