New “Heroes: Reborn” Trailer Features Character Death


She’s dead, Jim! Back in 2006, when the first season of the NBC superhero drama Heroes was debuting to rave reviews and mass audience acclaim, the show managed to turn its tagline, “Save the Cheerleader, Save the World,” into a meme.  It was incredibly prolific, albeit a little nonsensical– describing the show perfectly. It looks like the […]

DC unveils Legends of Tomorrow’s Hawkman and Hawkgirl

Hawkman Hawkgirl

When it was announced that both Carter Hall and Kendra Saunders would appear on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, the superhero team-up spin-off of Arrow and The Flash, it was hard to not feel a little trepidation. Two of my favorite superheroes on a CW budget? Didn’t we already go here with Hawkman on Smallville (where […]


Netflix to Premiere Marvel’s Jessica Jones on 11.20.15


Check out the teaser below.  There isn’t any solid footage to note; just a bunch of disconnected imagery and indecipherable murmuring set to Of Monsters and Men’s Eye of the Storm.


Preacher gets a full series order from AMC


I’ve always thought Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg would have been the perfect writing team for a rebooted Spider-Man, certainly far better than the team that mishandled the Vacation reboot is likely to give us. But, as this duo is about to gear up for what AMC is surely hoping will be their next big comics-based […]


Captain America’s Shield has place of honor in Colbert’s Late Show


I didn’t get a chance to make a screen cap, but watching last night’s debut of The Late Show Starring Stephen Colbert, I was pleased to see that Captain America’s Shield—presented to him by Joe Quesada in a long ago episode of the Colbert Report—was given a prominent place on the set. Given that Colbert […]

Tony Todd cast as the voice of Zoom on The Flash


Candyman star Tony Todd, who isn’t wholly unfamiliar with DC projects, having played a one episode “freak of the week” role on Smallville over a decade ago and more recently portraying the voice of Icon on Young Justice, will now be joining the cast of The Flash for its second season as the the voice […]

  The Legend of Korra, Nickelodeon’s four season follow up to the beloved Avatar: the Last Airbender, is receiving a full series DVD box set.  It was recently announced that Avatar would also finally be collected as a 16 DVD complete series box set this fall, so this move comes as little surprise.

Mockingbird is getting an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off after all


Remember a few months back when there was talk of a spin-off of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. that focused on Adrianne Palicki‘s Bobbi Morse and Nick Blood‘s Lance Hunter? At the time it seemed like we were either getting that or Agent Carter Season 2, and once ABC opted to renew the latter, the former […]

New Jem and the Holograms Music Video Trailer is More Pop than Glam…


Today, Universal released a new trailer for the film adaptation of Jem and the Holograms showcasing the song “Youngblood,” which debuted in the movie’s initial trailer. I was but an egg when Jem and the Holograms first aired in the 80s.  I have minimal point of reference for the series beyond the IDW comic and that Taric reference in League […]
