Invincible Voice Cast

Amazon Prime is turning the Skybound/Image comic book series Invincible by Robert Kirkman into an animated series that will arrive next year. Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead) stars as 17-year old Mark Grayson, who just so happens to be the son of the most powerful superhero on the planet, Omni-Man (J.K. Simmons). As he begins to discover his own superpowers, he learns that his father may not be the clean-cut superhero that he seems to be.

The first Invincible trailer arrived earlier this year along with an impressive roster of voice talent. But not all of the cast members had been revealed, because Brazil’s 2020 CCXP virtual convention revealed a handful of new cast members, including Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali (Moonlight), Jon Hamm (Mad Men), Clancy Brown (The Shawshank Redemption), Djimon Hounsou (Gladiator) and more. Check out the full Invincible voice cast and find out who they’re playing below. Read More »

A World of Calm

Let’s be real: the world sucks right now, and just making it to the end of another day can often feel like a struggle.

The series is called A World of Calm, but it might as well be called ASMR: The TV Show. Get the details below. Read More »

ramy season 2 trailer

Ramy is one of Hulu’s great underrated shows — a deviously funny, profoundly affecting drama about a first-generation Egyptian-American grappling with his relationship with his Islamic religion and his family, all while trying to get laid. Created, written, and produced by star Ramy YoussefRamy got some deserved critical attention leading to a Golden Globe win for Yousseff, but it remains criminally underwatched. Perhaps a new guest star in the form of Hollywood’s favorite mentor figure Mahershala Ali could bring some more viewers to Ramy. Watch the Ramy season 2 trailer below.

How Wesley Snipes Reacted to Blade News

Even though X-Men started the modern comic book movie craze in 2000, and Iron Man pioneered the idea of a massive shared cinematic universe for superheroes, Blade deserves some credit for digging into Marvel Comics before both of them. The half-vampire, half-human character played by Wesley Snipes delivered some solid action and plenty of blood, and it still has some very passionate fans who were not very pleased when Marvel Studios announced Green Book star Mahershala Ali would be the new Blade.

Thankfully, Wesley Snipes has chimed in to tell all the Blade fans out there to “chillaaxx,” and he couldn’t be more supportive of the Marvel Cinematic Universe moving on with a new actor in the role.  Read More »
