Adam Driver Saturday Night Live

Last night brought the first new Saturday Night Live of 2016, and it just so happens that Adam Driver hosted during the first box office weekend that Star Wars: The Force Awakens didn’t take the #1 spot. However, The Force Awakens was still the talk of the weekend with a hilarious new sketch taking aim at Kylo Ren, and it wasn’t the only reference made to Star Wars during the episode. There was even more Disney fun to be had with Adam Driver playing Aladdin as well.

We recap that and all the sketches from the Adam Driver Saturday Night Live episode after the jump! Read More »

The Punisher Series

When Netflix started their relationship with Marvel Studios, their slate was quite ambitious. The streaming service struck a deal for series adaptations of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist, all leading up to an assembly of The Defenders. However, it sounds like one more Marvel series may enter the equation, and it’s all because of the second season of Daredevil.

Jon Bernthal will be playing Frank Castle, aka The Punisher, in the second season of the first Marvel series to debut on Netflix, and apparently the streaming service and Marvel are so happy with the character that they’re already developing a spin-off series for the vigilante.

X-Men First Class Hellfire Club

Fox announced a number of shows based on their pre-existing franchises for the Television Critics Association, focusing on 24: Legacy and the return of Prison Break. They are additionally developing Hellfire Club, based on the location seen in X-Men: First Class. (Another X-Men-based show, Legion, is in the works at sister network FX.) Fox chairman and CEO Dana Walden said Hellfire Club could be seen as early as one year from now.

“Unlikely it would be the fall,” Walden said. “Potentially midseason but no immediate plans. We’re still working on Hellfire Club. Obviously those executive producers are very busy with the film franchise and the FX show, so not sure.”

Below, Fox execs give a small update on the developing Rambo TV series, and explain why the new Urban Cowboy isn’t moving forward.

Star Wars Rebels Season 2 Trailer cross guard lightsaber

Disney has released a trailer for Star Wars Rebels, which will be return from a mid-season break on January 20th 2016. I know a lot of you are excited coming off Star Wars: The Force Awakens but have probably not dipped your toes into this DisneyXD series, but you should beccause its a lot of fun (and this comes from someone who could never get into Clone Wars). And its not too late to binge watch and catch up as the episodes are generally only 22 minutes long.

The Star Wars Rebels Season 2 trailer shows us a glimpse at the final six episodes of this season. But probably the most interesting image in the trailer is of Ezra Bridger igniting a cross guard lightsaber, which is similar to the one wielded by Kylo Ren in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Of course, its not Kylo Ren’s lightsaber (this one is green and seems to be of a sturdier construction) but it seems like this might be the first hint that the series will have connections to the upcoming films.
