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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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. No release date was assigned […]
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 […]
Hot off the announcement of Powerless, a DC Comics inspired TV comedy about an insurance company that deals with damage caused by superheroics, NBC has put up the pilot episode for another comics-influenced comedy, Stunted, on their YouTube channel. Littered with comics and other nerd culture references, Stunted focuses on Eric (played by series creator Jeff Galante), […]
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 […]
With Jessica Jones gearing up for its Netflix debut sometime later this year, the press around it is starting to gear up. Per IndieWire (easily one of my favorite film sites), their team got a chance to chat with Marvel Television head Jeph Loeb and showrunner Melissa Rosenberg during the TCAs about what’s coming for […]
Folks, we have a Livewire. As reported by Variety, Brit Morgan will guest star as Leslie Willis during an episode of CBS’ new television adaptation of Supergirl, which debuts this fall. Cast in the show as a shock-jock (think female Howard Stern…I guess radio isn’t dead in this world), Leslie has an accident that transforms her and makes her take […]
We talk with series writer Paul Cornell about his Four Doctors crossover event for Titan, his Dark Horse limited series This Damned Band, a recently announced Warcraft graphic novel due out next year and the one comic he walked away from.
Hellblazers, it looks like The CW is coming to your aide, or at least providing you with one last go with your favorite leading man. Announced today by the network at the Television Critics’ Association’s press-tour, Matt Ryan will be reprising his role as John Constantine in a one episode guest-appearance on Arrow‘s fourth season […]
Jay Garrick won’t be the only Flash joining Grant Gustin‘s Barry Allen in Season 2 of the popular CW series, as Australian actor Keiynan Lonsdale has signed on to play Wally West per Variety. Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg released the following statement after the casting was announced: Just like when we met Grant for the […]
German actor Falk Hentschel, who has been seen on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Reckless will be joining the cast of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow as the newest incarnation of Carter Hall aka Hawkman. The series has already recruited Ciara Renee to play Kendra Saunders/Hawkgirl, so it was surely only a matter of time before […]
In a pretty nice piece of marketing, CBS is aiming squarely at the young women demographic for the upcoming Supergirl, and to highlight that they invited 400 mother and daughters to view a sneak preview of the first episode.
In doing so, they also got a nice surprise, which you’ll see in the short video below…
Given the tendency of superheroics in mass media to aim for the testosterone, it’s nice to see a network to cater to a wholly different demographic for this series. It should give us a whole new reason to root for its success. Everybody needs heroes to look to up to after all.
Supergirl premieres Monday, October 26th (8:30-9:30 PM, ET/PT) on CBS.
For those who don’t know, Tom Cavanagh (who plays Eobard Thawne/The Reverse Flash on CW’s The Flash) has a podcast with comedian Michael Ian Black called “Mike and Tom Eat Snacks”, of which the premise is that both actors eat, rate and review a different snack food each episode.
During San Diego Comic Con, in the same press room where I pestered Grant Gustinregarding Jay Garrick and a possible Flash musical episode, I decided to beat my fellow reporters to the punch and open the volley of questions for Cavanagh with a query regarding just what sort of snack food a time traveler from our distant future might find appealing. His answer was enthusiastic to say the least:
I love the fact that you are just bridging The Flash with my podcast, “Mike and Tom Eat Snacks”! My god, I love you! All I want to do is talk about that thing, and you just led me into it…my gosh! You know, it’s a really good question, Eobard Thawne’s favorite snack would involve some kind of cow-based, meat product because cows don’t exist where he’s from. They’re out of cows. They’re out of cows! So maybe some beef jerky? I like the fact that in my head that while everyone here is waiting to talk about The Flash, I’m wondering: ‘would it be beef jerky?’.
But listen to this podcast, you won’t be disappointed! “Mike and Tom Eat Snacks” with Micheal Ian Black and Tom Cavanagh! It’s very funny and it’s very blue! It’s not what you’re used to seeing, agreed?
I, of course, answered in the affirmative!
While the rest of his time with us, he couldn’t answer much, having to, as he said himself: “dodge and weave and bob and duck questions like crazy”, other than revealing that he will be a part of the cast in the second season.
In an attempt to get around that, the question was posed about how the second season provides an opportunity to reinvent his character:
My starting point has always been, and will always be, Reverse Flash. That is the starting gate to the track I’m running. I thought they did a really great job with that last year. We ended with a well earned season finale…sometimes with a season finale (showrunners) go “well we have to have this big thing” and you work hard and formulate it, but it’s not organic. I feel like with Rick Cosnett sacrificing himself with the death of Eddie Thawne, coming a little out of left field, I feel like we actually earned that big moment. The job now is to try and vault the high-bar that Rick and the season finale set for the second season.
What’s nice about it is…our writing has been unafraid of the challenge from the beginning, to the point where (Executive Producer) Greg Berlanti last year…this is my third show with Greg…we came out of the gate so fast last year around Episode 7. I said ‘are we at all worried about story?’ because we were coming out with Captain Cold and Plastique and here comes Grodd and you’re unveiled in Episode 9 as the “Man in the Yellow Suit”. Verbatim, Greg’s answer was: ‘there’s always more story’. They’re unafraid, which I like, they’re fearless. They’re not trying to repeat a pilot that worked. And so, in Season 2, we’re not trying to repeat Season 1. We’ve got twists and turns and we’re going to open in a much darker place picking up where we left off last year. I’ve read the first few episodes and it’s accelerated, and it’s not going to be “let’s try and follow a model that worked in Season 1″. I think if you’re a fan of the show what we have in store will keep you a fan.
In other words, Cavanagh has to keep pretty mum about what’s coming for his character, though he did let us know that he will be continuing some of the dual affable/”success at all costs” nature of his character.
Anyone have any guesses as to how Thawne returns next year? Hit me with them!
For those of you who don’t know, my fellow Entertainment Editor, Hannah Lodge and I, along with Beat Contributors Harper Harris and Cal Cleary, host a mostly-weekly podcast together for our site, GeekRex (where we also write-up comic and movie reviews, along with the rare television and game piece). For the latest episode, Heidi has been […]
You could probably run an interesting poll among genre fans to see which ones find the elevator-pitch description for Netflix's new show Sense8--a globe-spanning genre series from the minds of the Wachowski siblings and J. Michael Straczynski--an immediate selling point, and which ones see it as a reason to stay away. I have to admit that I'm in the latter group. The involvement of the
Comics on TV! An emerging trend. While The WB and the Walking Dead-iverse seem to have been having the most success on broadcast TV, IDW is getting into the game with Brooklyn Animal Control, the comics by JT Petty (Splinter Cell) and Stephen Thompson is in development as a pilot at USA Network, with Petty […]
