Agents of SHIELD Jason O'Mara

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has a new leader, and it’s Batman. Or at least a guy who sounds a lot like him. Marvel announced today that Jason O’Mara — who, among other things, is known for voicing the Dark Knight in Warner Bros.’ animated DC projects — has been cast as the new director of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the fourth season of the ABC drama. His name has yet to be revealed, but the official description of his character has us wondering if he might be somehow linked to another Marvel Studios TV series.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children TV Spot

It’s been a few years since we’ve gotten Tim Burton‘s traditional weirdness on the big screen. The last time the director was at the helm of a film, it was the biographical drama Big Eyes. Before that, Burton delivered a double dose of his signature goofy gothic style with the lackluster Dark Shadows, and the solid stop-motion animated Frankenweenie. Now he’s back to bringing a new band of misfits to theaters with his latest project.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is based on the novel of the same name by Ransom Riggs with a story following a boy named Jake (Asa Butterfield) who discovers a mysterious orphanage populated by kids who have strange powers and abilities. However, as soon as he becomes comfortable in this odd place, he learns it may be in danger from hidden enemies who are hunting these kids for their powers.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Infinity Stones

The end credits for 2012’s The Avengers first introduced Thanos to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and his quest to collect all the Infinity Stones will presumably come to a head with 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War. But don’t look for him to make much progress in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

Director James Gunn has stated, in no uncertain terms, that the Infinity Stones will not play a role in the upcoming sequel. Instead, as we saw in the Comic-Con footage, Star-Lord and company will have their hands full with the Ravagers, led by Taserface (Chris Sullivan), and the Sovereign, led by Ayesha (Elizabeth Debicki).  Read More »

The Tick

We were initially disappointed to hear that the upcoming revival of The Tick would not have Patrick Warburton returning to the lead role. But by the looks of it, Peter Serafinowicz should be a more than worthy successor. A batch of new The Tick stills have been revealed, showing more of Serafinowicz in that musclebound blue suit, plus Griffin Newman as Arthur, Jackie Earle Haley as The Terror, Brendan Hines as Superian, and more. Check out the latest The Tick images below. Read More »

Starz TCA 2016

Starz presented panels to the Television Critics Association today. Starz CEO Chris Albrecht spoke to reporters to make several announcements and take questions. Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, who produces the Starz series Power, has a new show in development with Starz. “Tomorrow, Today is a terrific superhero-themed series based on a screenplay by Curtis Jackson, our partner in Power,” Albrecht said.

Later, during a panel for Power, Jackson spoke about Tomorrow, Today. “Tomorrow, Today, I wrote that screenplay three times before I actually got a chance to pitch it as a series with new writers around to support it,“ Jackson said.

American Gods Season 1 2017

Starz presented a panel on their 2017 series American Gods, based on Neil Gaiman’s graphic novel. Co-showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green were in attendance and screened a trailer first. The clips showed Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) released early from prison for his wife’s funeral. He throws a gold coin on her grave and it sinks into the dirt. His wife, Laura Moon (Emily Browning) returns later in the clip saying, “Who said I died, Bobby?” But not before we see Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane) recruit Shadow Moon when they meet on an airplane. Other visual clips include Shadow Moon walking through the forest, and swinging a hammer at a cow’s head in silhouetted slow motion.

After the panel, Fuller and Green spoke to reporters further about the visual aesthetic of American Gods. “Neil Gaiman’s book cracks open a window in a world we wanted to see,” Green said. “We started working with David Slade who is an incredible visionary and just immediately started sketching it out physically and conversationally until we could see the ideas really come to life, so we owe a lot of credit to his lens.”  Read More »

Channing Tatum in Hail Caesar

It’s surely just a matter of time before Disney gets around to making a live-action remake of its animated classic The Little Mermaid, but in the meantime they’re diving headfirst into a different project about fish people. Disney’s remake of Splash has just caught Channing Tatum and Jillian Bell, who previously co-starred in 22 Jump Street. But there’s a twist: Tatum will be the one playing the mermaid, and Bell will be the human.  Read More »
