Batman and Bill Trailer

Everyone thinks Bob Kane is the sole creator of Batman. What the new documentary Batman and Bill presupposes is, maybe he’s not.

Even though Bob Kane is frequently and historically associated with the creation of Batman, the more educated comic book fans now know that many of the signature elements of Batman’s long comic book history were created by another man named Bill Finger. But why is his name not nearly as synonymous with the creation of The Dark Knight? A new documentary explores why Finger was omitted from Batman’s history and only just recently started getting the credit that he’s due.

Locke and Key

Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez‘s Locke & Key is getting a second chance at the small screen. Over five years ago, Mark Romanek (Never Let Me Go) directed a Locke & Key pilot for Fox, but they decided not to move forward with the series. Now, Hulu has ordered a Scott Derrickson-directed and Carlton Cuse-produced Locke & Key pilot.

becoming bond trailer

Sean Connery played James Bond five times, from Dr. No through You Only Live Twice, before abandoning the role. He would eventually be coaxed back for Diamonds Are Forever. But before that, for a single film, another actor held the role of Agent 007. That actor was George Lazenby, an Australian mechanic with no experience in front of the camera. Hulu’s new documentary Becoming Bond sets out to explore how he got the park and, perhaps more significantly, why he refused to play the part again despite a massive paycheck. You can watch the trailer below.

Stephen King Castle Rock Series

After plowing through several of his novels and short story collections, all Stephen King readers eventually come to a realization: all of his stories take place in the same universe. Well, more specifically, a multiverse. Some stories take place in the same town, while others take place in alternate dimensions. Characters from disparate stories cross paths. People with the same names appear in different places and die different deaths, suggesting alternate realities and timelines. All of this chaos orbits the Dark Tower series of novels, which tie King’s massive bibliography together in one intentionally untidy package. You can read the King oeuvre for the genre chills or you can read it to find those secret and not-so-secret connections.

And considering everyone’s obsession with “shared universes” these days, Hulu’s upcoming Castle Rock series was inevitable. We’ve already seen a trailer, but thanks to a new press release, we now know more about what this show will offer. Specifically, it will be the first onscreen Stephen King project to acknowledge that all these stories take place in the same realm.

Stephen King Castle Rock Series

The Constant Readers of the works of Stephen King (yes, there’s a proper name for his most loyal fans) will recognize the name Castle Rock for being the fictional town of Maine where many of the author’s stories have been set. Stories like Cujo, The Dead Zone and The Body are set in that location while works like It, Dreamcatcher, Pete Sematary, Sleepwalkers, The Shawshank Redemption and Under the Dome make reference to the town. Now it appears a new show from J.J. Abrams will take us back to this fictional locale and all the terror and mystery that comes with it.

Castle Rock is a new Hulu series from Stephen King and executive producer J.J. Abrams, who all previously teamed for the time travel series 11.22.63, and a new teaser drops the names of plenty of famous characters and locations from the world of Stephen King’s most famous stories. You’ll see what I mean when you watch the Stephen King Castle Rock series teaser after the jump. Read More »

runaways cast

Marvel’s Runaways has one of the greatest high concepts in modern superhero comics: what if a group of kids learned that their parents were all members of a super villain group known as The Pride? And what if they fled their homes and decided to use their inherited abilities for good? Originally created by writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Adrian Alphona, the series was short-lived in its original incarnation but has only grown in popularity over the years as more people realize just how good it is. It was inevitable that it would become a television show and Hulu was lucky to get there first.

Now, shortly after the core cast of kids was announced, we know who will be playing their parents.
