michael sheen and david tennant cast in good omens

The Apocalypse is looking pretty good right now.

Michael Sheen and David Tennant have been cast in the Amazon TV series Good Omens, the adaptation of Neil Gaiman‘s whimsical, and very British, apocalyptic comedy. It’s some inspired casting that bodes well for the adaptation of another Gaiman work, who is on a roll right now after American Gods. A good omen for the show, you might say.

DuckTales Sneak Peek

Two days ago, DuckTales returned with an all new style and cast on Disney XD. Season one of the 2-D animated series is 21 half-hour episodes and two hour-long specials. Before the show even premiered, Disney ordered a season two. They’re clearly confident in the reboot. If they weren’t, then maybe they wouldn’t have released the first episode of the revival online.

Is Jessica Jones resurrecting the Netflix show’s most terrifying villain? Or is David Tennant‘s Kilgrave only returning from the grave for a traumatizing flashback in Jessica Jones Season 2?

We can’t know for sure, except that it is confirmed that Tennant will be returning as the mind-controlling psychopath who raped and tormented Jessica in the show’s first season. There’s even an official set picture to prove it.

Ferdinand trailer

An animated film about a physically imposing character who’s more than a muscle-bound idiot, with a message about not judging others based solely on their looks? That’s about as subtle as a bull in a chi…well, you know the rest. But animated movies provide teachable moments for young audiences, and even though we’re all familiar with these tropes, there’s always a new generation who’ll be learning them for the first time.

Enter Ferdinand, the latest animated effort from Blue Sky Studios. 20th Century Fox has released the first trailer, and if nothing else, it features an impressive voice cast. Watch the full Ferdinand trailer below. Read More »

DuckTales voice cast

I’ve been very curious about Disney XD’s upcoming revival of DuckTales for close to a year now, ever since they revealed the show’s terrific art style and teased imagery that suggests an adventurous tone. While I enjoyed the original cartoon as a youngster, it’s Carl Banks’ original Donald Duck comics that shine brightly for me these days – if the new show can capture the spirit of those stories, it may count me among its fans.

We still don’t know what this series will truly feel like, but we now know who will be providing the voices of the core cast and it’s a whole bunch of very funny, very talented people.

Marvel's Jessica Jones

After announcing a season two pickup for Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Netflix presented a panel with the cast and creators of the show. After her panel, Krysten Ritter spoke with journalists further. When she signed up for the show, there were already plans to join the Netflix Marvel characters in a Defenders series. News of getting her own second season delighted Ritter.

“I love Jessica and I’m so excited to see what happens next for her,” Ritter said. “When I watched the show the weekend it came out with everybody else, I was like, ‘Okay, what’s next?’ Which is kind of what happens with all the Netflix shows. You need more. So I’m excited to see where she goes next and how she handles this next chapter of her life.”

More on season 2 after the jump, including Jessica’s upcoming arc, where Jessica and Luke might meet next, and whether a certain someone will return.

final jessica jones trailer

Jessica Jones could be something special. The second collaboration between Marvel Studios and Netflix, the series is a loose adaptation of Alias, the critically acclaimed comic run from writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Michael Gaydos that followed costumed superhero Jessica Jones as she hung up her tights and opened her own private investigation business. The result remains one of the best comics of the millennium so far, and the perfect template upon which to build a television series.

The massive success of Daredevil has given Marvel and Netflix a confidence that has spilled into the marketing for Jessica Jones. Each teaser and every trailer is on point – they just have to flash the Marvel name and you know exactly what you’re getting. The final Jessica Jones trailer has arrived and it’s more of the same: traumatized former superhero downs booze and punches the stuffing out of bad guys while hunting her archenemy. Thankfully, that “same” still looks awfully good.

Watch the final Jessica Jones trailer after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

alias character poster

There are many reasons you should have Marvel‘s upcoming Netflix series Jessica Jones on your radar, but one of them is the inclusion of David Tennant as Zebediah Kilgrave, a.k.a. the Purple Man. Although not as famous as other comic book villains, he’s one the creepiest foes to ever haunt the pages of the Marvel Universe, using his ability to make anyone obey his commands to frequently unsettling effect. He won’t be the first villain the former Doctor Who star has played, but he could be the nastiest one yet.

A new character poster and a new image featuring Tennant as the character have arrived and they tease a version of the character who has been slightly tweaked from his comic book counterpart. Check out the new Jessica Jones character poster (and more!) after the jump.
