Deadline is reporting that Fox 21 and Hulu are working together on a TV series based on the hit video game franchise, Hitman. Developed by IO Interactive, the series has enjoyed cult-classic success across several generations of game platforms. However, two failed films have never allowed to prosper in other media.
The pilot is being written by Derek Kolstad, creator of the John Wick franchise, and is set to be a cornerstone of Hulu programming in the future. The episodic nature of television could lend itself incredibly well to a Hitman series, so only time will tell.
The incredible Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series is coming to an end, and with it, beginning in 2018, Nickelodeon plans to launch a new series. The Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will star the band of brothers as they encounter new allies and villains and discover a mystical world they never knew existed beneath the streets of New York City.

It seems the Titans as we know it aren’t the only on-screen superheroes expected to join the live-action adaptation, as casting sheets for the roles of heroes, Hawk and Dove, as well as Detective Amy Rohrbach, have went out this morning reports The Hashtag Show.
Hawk and Dove are a pair of crime-fighting vigilantes that have gone through several different incarnations over the years that transform when in danger. The studio is currently looking at Alan Ritchson (Smallville, Ninja Turtles) and Rebecca Rittenhouse (The Mindy Project), respectively. Meanwhile, Rohrbach was one of the few clean cops working in Bludhaven and eventually became Nightwing’s trusted ally while Dick Grayson worked as a hero there, confirming the inclusion of Nightwing in the series.
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!
