FX has shared the first full official trailer for the second season of Legion, and it seems to be just as strange as the first, which is absolutely a good thing. At the end of the first season, David was taken by a mysterious item and transported away, but he seems to have returned, albeit a little different.
On top of that, the mutants have joined forces with Division 3 to combat the growing threat of the Shadow King. Season 2 of Legion debuts on FX on April 13th.
Netflix is on a tear today, with the first bit of footage and a release date for the highly anticipated second season of Luke Cage, set to drop on Netflix on June 22nd. No other details about the season are known other than casting, but it looks like Luke Cage is out to issue a challenge to people who think they can walk all over him.
Netflix has revealed the first full trailer for their upcoming Lost in Space series, and it looks… pretty fantastic. It’s drastically different from any other interpretation, either the 1960’s TV series, or the late 90’s film. The robot this time isn’t actually a robot, but an artificial life-form that very much resembles the Geth from Mass Effect. In fact, given this production design, I wouldn’t be surprised if the show was linked to Mass Effect in some way.
It definitely looks interesting with plenty of action, beautiful landscapes, and an interesting seeming story. Lost in Space, starring Molly Parker, Toby Stephens, Ignacia Serricchio and more, debuts on Netflix April 13th.
Warner Bros. Animation, and Warner Bros. Television have announced their WonderCon line-up and, as expected, it’s full of DCTV mainstays on The CW such as Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash and Supergirl. Additionally, the Constantine animated series will debut on March 24th at the panel, at the same time it becomes available on CWSeed.com, with episodes clocking in at around 10 minutes.
Matt Ryan is back to voice the main protagonist in the webseries, which was written by comic book writer J. M. DeMatteis. The webseries has already been compared to darkness of the original Hellblazer comics from Vertigo.
A rumor had been circulating for quite some time, that Fox was interested in purchasing WWE from Vince McMahon. However, that rumor has since been debunked, and elaborated that the company is interested in bringing WWE Raw to broadcast television on FOX, and WWE Smackdown! to air on Fox Sports. The bid is meant as a fallback if Fox loses UFC, but the $400 million amount is equal to that of USA, who is hoping to retain those rights after next year.
WWE’s broadcast contract is set to expire on September 30th, 2019, but where the flourishing company goes is still to be determined. Would you watch WWE Raw on Fox?
SyFy has revealed an absolutely batshit, and insanely awesome look at the big-bad of their Superman prequel series, Brainiac, and never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined something so perfect from this series. Ever since that first trailer was leaked, I had hopes. But this, is better than anything I could have ever imagined.
Check out the trailer above for our first look at the ancient Superman villain, and be amazed. Krypton will premiere Wednesday, March 21st on SyFy.
Netflix has revealed a shocking new series for their upcoming slate, with a reboot of genre favorite, Lost in Space. The teaser doesn’t reveal much, but does show the more serious tone the show will be taking over its predecessor.

Lost in Space, starring Molly Parker, Parker Posey, Toby Stephens, Ignacia Serricchio and more, hits Netflix April 13th, 2018.
The BBC has revealed a new logo for the upcoming series of series of Doctor Who, which will feature actress Jodie Whittaker in the title role, the first woman to be play the role of The Doctor.

Writer, and head of Creative with DC Entertainment, Geoff Johns, has confirmed that the Titans won’t be alone in their live-action debut on DC’s streaming service, as episode 5 will feature the introduction of the Doom Patrol. The Doom Patrol is a superhero team consisting of many of DC’s more eccentric characters, made popular by Grant Morrison in the early-90’s.
Beast Boy was an original member of the Doom Patrol, so it’s possible that factors into their inclusion, but with Hawk and Dove also joining the Titans, it’s looking to be a haven for lesser known live-action debuts of DC characters.
Marvel Studios and Netflix have debuted the first full trailer for season 2 of Jessica Jones, which is already set to debut just over a month from now, on March 8th. The second season is set to put a spotlight on Jessica’s origin, and what happened to her after the mysterious death of her family.
The trailer also gives mention of a sidekick, so maybe we’ll be seeing Hellcat this season, as well, which would be great. There are still plenty of surprises as these trailers usually only give away scenes from the first few episodes, so there’s plenty of mystery left to uncover.
Given that this is a blog of my favorite news, it only makes sense this would be here. While I don’t include car-related news often, it’s nice to see something that I can report on. NHK has revealed a new series, titled Midnight Supercar, debuting on March 28th.
The series will be similar to Night at the Museum, when a down-on-her luck car designer enters the Nagoya Motors Heritage Museum to look at the Nagoya 2000GT (It’s actually an incredibly rare Toyota 2000GT). After midnight, however, the museum comes alive and it’s up to her and a courageous racing driver brought to life by the magic of the museum to stop the 2000GT from being stolen. The series is live-action, so the image above is strictly promotional. Hit the jump to see a few more official images.

Stranger Things’ second season debuted October 28th to massive critical acclaim, and record streaming numbers.
