James D'Arcy agent carter jarvis

A new piece of casting has added a significant piece of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We all know Tony Stark’s artificial intelligence system is called J.A.R.V.I.S., voiced by Paul Bettany. And by now you may now, J.A.R.V.I.S. is the basis for Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron. However no one has ever questioned why Stark would name J.A.R.V.I.S. “J.A.R.V.I.S.” That’s because, in the comics, Jarvis is the name of Stark’s butler. In the movies though, he doesn’t have a butler. Where’s the connection?

The connection comes in on ABC’s Agent Carter. That’s where James D’Arcy (Cloud Atlas) has just been tasked to play Howard Stark’s butler, Edwin Jarvis. Read More »

The Tick TV return

The Tick is returning to live-action television. News of the big dumb blue guy coming back was one of the most unexpected bits of revival news we’ve heard all year, but also among the most welcome. Patrick Warburton will once again play The Tick, a not-all-there hero who fights for justice in The City. Original character creator Ben Edlund will be on hand, too, to write and produce. And that’s about all we know. But now Warburton has dished a bit on the Tick TV return, saying that it could be a bit darker than the original show, and probably with a new version of the costume to boot. Read More »

Lucifer TV series

Warner Bros and DC are really going all-out with TV series. In addition to Arrow, The Flash, Gotham, Constantine, the new Teen Titans-based Titans, Supergirl, and the possibility of a Wonder Woman show, there’s now another. Fox and the other companies are partnering on a Lucifer TV series. This version of Lucifer is based on the conception of the character created by Neil Gaiman for Sandman, which was in turn inspired by Milton’s depiction of him in Paradise Lost, and which was eventually spun off into his own Vertigo series written by Mike Carey.  Read More »

vacation-tv-reunion

Everyone loves a comedy reunion, it seems, and Vacation fans get a couple different versions. First there was that Old Navy ad campaign that brought Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo, and Juliette Lewis back together to hawk trousers. Then there’s the new Vacation film that casts Ed Helms as the grown Griswold son, and will feature cameos from Chase and D’Angelo as the elder Griswolds. Now the two actors have a script commitment from ABC for the new comedy series that will cast them as a couple forced to raise their grandchildren. It’s not explicitly a Vacation TV reunion, but it’s close enough.

And while we’re at it, Leslie Mann is in talks to play Audrey Griswold in the new Vacation film. Read More »
