Todd McFarlane has announced that he’s signed a deal with Blumhouse Productions (Get Out, Split, The Purge) to write and direct a new live-action Spawn film, based on the hit character he created. The film is set to be more akin to a horror movie, and less like its older, more action-oriented brother released almost 20 years ago.

There is no release date, but Spawn is also set to have an R-rating, falling in line with the characters past, and history as a more mature character for readers.

The anticipation for the third season of Young Justice, called Young Justice: Outsiders, has been off the charts, and the unveiling of the new team of heroes is sure to light an even bigger fire underneath fans. The new season is 26 episodes long, and confirmed to debut on DC’s new streaming service.

The new team adds Static Shock, Arrowette, Thirteen (an entirely new version of the character), and Spoiler. Conspicuously absent, but showing up later (in full stealth gear) were Nightwing, Aqualad, Artemis, and Superboy. The panel was light on story details, so we should be hearing more soon.

The best part? They’re bringing over the entire bundle, as well as the PS4 Drum Controller to play the game on, as well. Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum Session will be on sale later this year.

While closing out the panel for FX and Marvel’s Legion last night, showrunner Noah Hawley spoiled a bit of unexpected news.

“Because I’m at Comic-Con,” the Fargo creator said. “I wanted to let you know about a movie I’m developing for Fox. The first word is ‘Doctor.’ And the second is ‘Doom.’”

The Hollywood Reporter noted that Hawley is developing the film, as well as looking to direct. Hawley has no feature directing credits on his resume but previously directed an episode of Legion, and two episodes of Fargo.

Saïd Taghmaoui is the Shadow King in Legion S2

FX has announced that Saïd Taghmaoui (Wonder Woman) has joined the cast of Legion Season 2 in the role of the Shadow King, who was previously seen in the form of “the Devil with the Yellow Eyes,” The World’s Angriest Boy in the World, and Aubrey Plaza’s Lenny.

[The Shadow King is a] villain with a thousand faces. In his real form, he is always nattily dressed. Dapper with a thin Clark Gable style mustache. His eyes forever hidden behind a pair of ornate sunglasses. He was hip long before there was such an idea. He can seductively hold court on any topic and in any language, but his true passion lies in the singular timeless notion of power and amassing as much of it as possible…It is rumored he is the spawn of the first nightmare, which is fitting because fear is his weapon of choice in exposing weakness in others. To Farouk, fear equals weakness and he fears nothing. Which is why he takes such delight in seeing others squirm — a reminder he is more powerful than them.

IMAX has debuted a new trailer alongside Marvel Studios for their upcoming collaboration on Marvel’s Inhumans, the anticipated television about Marvel’s royal family.

Krypton Comic-Con Teaser

SDCCtag

SYFY has posted the SDCC teaser trailer for their upcoming Superman lineage story, Krypton. While the trailer gives us essentially nothing as far as story or new footage, it at least confirms that the network is still dedicated to the series, making it an inevitable cornerstone of the brand’s new image.

Krypton premieres on SYFY in 2018, executive produced by David S. Goyer and his Phantom Four banner. Set two generations before the destruction of the planet, Krypton follows Superman’s grandfather, whose House of El was ostracized, as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos. The Seg-El name is a nod to Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel and a reference to John Byrne’s 1980s miniseries, “The World of Krypton.”

While at their SDCC Panel, Netflix also premiered the first clip from the Adam Wingard-directed horror-thriller adaptation of Death Note. The clips sees Light Turner meet Ryuk for the first time in a tense battle of wills, as Light succumbs to the throes of the Death Note for the first time, and is coerced to write in its pages.

Death Note does not look like a great movie, in all honesty. It could be good as a standalone film, but thus far, as a Death Note property, it’s not inspiring much confidence. We’ll find out August 25th, when Death Note drops on Netflix.

Todd McFarlane has posted on a recent Facebook Live video that we can expect some pretty substantial news on a new Spawn film in less than 24 hours. That means, tomorrow at SDCC, we’ll most likely get our first announcement about the film, which has been in the mind of McFarlane for quite some time.

McFarlane has stated several times that he would love for the new film to focus on Sam and Twitch, the two seasoned detectives that have crossed paths with Al Simmons & Co. several times over the years. In this version, Spawn would remain an ominous figure casting a shadow over the world, as the two search for clues in a case connected to the Hellspawn.

The first trailer for Pacific Rim: Uprising gives us no story, but instead focuses on what we came for: beautiful, gigantic Jaegers. The Jaegers, giant robots from the first film that were used to fight kaiju, are getting an upgrade in this film, with the focus on newer models, instead of the previously older, Gipsy Danger. The new primary Jaeger is Gipsy Avenger, piloted by John Boyega’s character. There’s also Guardian Bravo, Titan Redeemer, Bracer Phoenix, and Saber Athena.

We also have a new viral website for the film, revealing blueprints of the new Jaeger styles, and confirming that Pacific Rim: Uprising is set 10 years after the original. Pacific Rim: Uprising is currently expected to hit theaters February 23, 2018.
