Real Final Defenders Trailer

Well, ignore that previous final trailer, because it totally wasn’t the real final trailer. With hours remaining until The Defenders hits Netflix, they’ve decided to drop one more trailer on us, with plenty more footage of the series. How they’ve been able to keep so many mysteries with all of this footage unveiled is beyond me.

The final trailer is a doozy showing not only teamwork between our heroes, but dissension, as well. Iron Fist going toe-to-toe with Daredevil would be a hell of a thing to watch, so needless to say, I’m pretty damn excited for this show to go live tomorrow!

The Secret World has long been one of most ripe properties in video games, with its incredible blending of mythology and lore. The fight between the Templars, the Illuminati, and the Dragons has ravaged on for centuries, with a war of supernatural abilities tipping the scales back and forth.

Now, that incredible story is being developed for television.  It will be produced by Johnny Depp, Christi Dembrowski, Sam Sarkar and Gudrun Giddings alongside Showrunner Pam Veasey. Giddings and Sarkar optioned the rights to The Secret World media back in 2012. The pilot is being written by James V. Hart, who is best known as the co-writer of Hook, with Robin Williams.

Season 6 of Arrow has finally found their big-bad for the season, with genre actor Kirk Acevedo (Fringe, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) playing the part of Richard Dragon. Deadline says Richard Dragon is an ex-con, who is released from prison after serving time for a crime he didn’t commit.  A master in hand-to-hand combat, he’s set to take over Star City’s criminal underworld upon his return.

Arrow is clearly taking cues from The New 52 run of Green Arrow by Jeff Lemire, with Ricardo Diaz Jr. being trained by the League of Assassins and taking on the name Richard Dragon.

David Tennant Returning as Kilgrave for Jessica Jones Season 2

dt

Entertainment Weekly has posted a new set picture for the second season of Jessica Jones that confirms that David Tennant’s fan-favorite Kilgrave, will return. This brings up quite a few questions, considering the murderous character was killed at the end of the first season. Perhaps flashbacks? Or maybe he’ll be a sort of ghost of Jessica’s past that haunts her, for what she did.

Time will tell, as Jessica Jones season 2 debuts next year on Netflix.

Musician Marvin “Krondon” Jones III has been cast in CW’s Black Lightningas a series regular playing the villainous Tobias Whale, according to Deadline. Tobias Whale is a large, physically-imposing gangster, and one Black Lightning’s earliest and most formidable foes in the comics.

I was excited about Krondon when I saw his audition. He’s going to make a great Tobias! His authentic street sensibility along with an insightful intelligence is perfect for the Tobias character arc. Not to mention his regal physical bearing will be additive to making our show exciting and different.

Variety is reportsing that Sugar Lyn Beard (Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates) will be appearing in The Flash Season 4 as Rebecca Sharpe/Hazard. This small-screen version of the DC Comics character is “perpetually down-on her luck and is convinced her life is cursed — until a freak accident changes everything. With the universe on her side, she poses a threat to both Team Flash and Central City.”

She joins an already stacked cast for a season that is shaping up to be a lot of fun, even without any episodes airing until early-October.

Matt Ryan’s Constantine Sought for Legends

The next season of Legends of Tomorrow is set to have a much more spooky vibe than previous seasons, as Damien Dahrk and Gorilla Grodd are set to act as primary antagonists in a more magic-oriented story. With magic and supernatural elements coming to the forefront, the producers are heavily seeking Matt Ryan to re-appear as his fan-favorite Constantine.

We haven’t seen Matt Ryan’s Constantine in the flesh since he guest-starred in an episode of Arrow. Wentworth Miller is also confirmed to guest star as a “Bizarro” version of his Captain Cold, Leonard Snart.

Teagan Croft Cast as Raven in Titans TV Show

Deadline is reporting that Australian actress, Teagan Croft (Home and Away, The Osiris Child), a relative newcomer to acting, has landed one of the lead roles in the new live-action Titans TV series from Greg Berlanti, Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Sarah Schechter and Warner Bros Television.

Croft will play Rachel Roth, a.k.a. Raven, on the series, indicating a much younger direction for the character, possibly even the team, than we had initially expected. Titans is set to premiere on an upcoming DC Entertainment streaming service, that still remains quite a mystery up to this point.

First Inhumans Clip Online

Marvel Studios has released the first clip of Marvel’s Inhumans, and it’s essentially an extended version of the clip we saw in the IMAX trailer, featuring our first look at Medusa’s hair. It shows us about the same amount of her hair, but at least gives us an idea of her personality in the series.

I’m trying to be cautiously optimistic about Marvel’s Inhumans, as I want it to be good. I want it to be great, actually. It has the potential to be so beautiful, and exciting. But, we’ll have to see where things go with the show.

Andrea Romano Retires

Warner Bros. Animation casting director, Andrea Romano, has retired, after 33 years in the animation industry. Romano is best-known as one of the key people in the DC Animated Universe titles, working on everything from Batman: The Animated Series to the upcoming Young Justice: The Outsiders. She’s the one responsible for Kevin Conroy’s Batman, and Mark Hamill’s Joker. Tiny Toon Adventures, to DuckTales.

I shall miss so many aspects of this industry – particularly the people I’ve worked alongside, and all the fun that happens on both side of the glass. From the bottom of my heart, I extend my sincere gratitude to every actor, producer, director, engineer and colleague that has helped make this run so incredible.

We knew from an earlier casting call that The Flash season 4 was looking to add Ralph Dibny, aka The Elongated Man, to the team at S.T.A.R. Labs, and now  EW has just confirmed that the super-stretchy hero will be played by Hartley Sawyer (Saving the Human Race, SPiN) as a new recurring character.

This version of Ralph Dibny will be private investigator, with “skills that rival those of Batman. Upon discovering he has the power to stretch his body to any shape or form, Dibny uses his new abilities to help Team Flash solve one of Central City’s greatest mysteries.” The Flash season 4 is shaping up to be an amazing ride already, with new comic book characters, costumes, and more all in the making.
