Swamp Thing Reportedly Cancelled by DC Entertainment

Continuing to show just how out of touch they truly are, the executives at Warner Bros. have decided to pull the plug on the DC Universe streaming series, Swamp Thing, cancelled it after just a single episode has aired. The decision was believed to have been made after executives weren’t keen on the direction the series had taken. The cast and crew supposedly received the notification of the cancellation of the series late last night.

The series premiered on May 31st, to generally positive reviews, making it unclear why the studio was so low on the adaptation. Swamp Thing will supposedly run out the remainder of its filmed episodes with the second episode premiering on June 7th.

UPDATE: It would seem creative differences were not the issue, after all. After a $40 million rebate filming rebate debacle in North Carolina with Warner Bros., the studio would only be getting a $14 million tax credit, which slashed nearly half the budget for Swamp Thing, making it unable to maintain its budget for a niche series. For more information, check out this Twitter thread.

Full Trailer for Jessica Jones’ Final Season

Netflix and Marvel Studios have released the first, full trailer for the final season of Jessica Jones. The new trailer gives us our first look at the villain of the piece, Gregory Salinger, who believes Jessica Jones to be a fraud and false-hero, who plans to expose her for what she truly is.

“When Jessica (Krysten Ritter) crosses paths with a highly intelligent psychopath, she and Trish (Rachael Taylor) must repair their fractured relationship and team up to take him down.  But a devastating loss reveals their conflicting ideas of heroism and sets them on a collision course that will forever change them both.”

The final season of Jessica Jones hits Netflix on June 14th.

Magic: The Gathering Animated Series in the Works at Netflix

After wrapping up what looks on track to become the biggest movie in box office history, The Russo Brothers are moving on to their next project: a Magic: The Gathering animated series for Netflix. Netflix announced the series as part of a new partnership between the streaming giant and Hasbro’s Allspark Studios. While details are scarce as of right now, we know the series will follow the Planeswalkers, legendary spellcasting heroes and villains that traverse the multiverse doing battle.

Hopefully we’ll learn more soon as this could easily become something massive for Netflix if handled well. Magic still has quite a fan-base and in the right hands could be great.

But as powerful forces descend on Houma, intent on exploiting the swamp’s mysterious properties for their own purposes, Abby will discover that the swamp holds mystical secrets, both horrifying and wondrous — and the potential love of her life may not be dead after all.

First Photos and Synopsis From Batwoman

With The CW’s DC Universe shows wrapping up their seasons through the next few weeks, The CW has ramped up promotion for their upcoming Ruby Rose-starring Batwoman series. Batwoman has been ordered to series, and is set to premiere later this year, and to celebrate we now have our first few images from the series, including a look at the Arrow-verse batsuit. You can hit the jump to view the photos, and read the extra long synopsis for Batwoman below.

“Kate Kane (Ruby Rose) never planned to be Gotham’s new vigilante. Three years after Batman mysteriously disappeared, Gotham is a city in despair. Without the Caped Crusader, the Gotham City Police Department was overrun and outgunned by criminal gangs. Enter Jacob Kane (Dougray Scott) and his military-grade Crows Private Security, which now protects the city with omnipresent firepower and militia. Years before, Jacob’s first wife and daughter were killed in the crossfire of Gotham crime. He sent his only surviving daughter, Kate Kane, away from Gotham for her safety. After a dishonorable discharge from military school and years of brutal survival training, Kate returns home when the Alice in Wonderland gang targets her father and his security firm, by kidnapping his best Crow officer Sophie Moore (Meagan Tandy).

“Although remarried to wealthy socialite Catherine Hamilton-Kane (Elizabeth Anweis), who bankrolls the Crows, Jacob is still struggling with the family he lost, while keeping Kate –– the daughter he still has –– at a distance. But Kate is a woman who’s done asking for permission. In order to help her family and her city, she’ll have to become the one thing her father loathes –– a dark knight vigilante. With the help of her compassionate stepsister, Mary (Nicole Kang), and the crafty Luke Fox (Camrus Johnson), the son of Wayne Enterprises’ tech guru Lucius Fox, Kate Kane continues the legacy of her missing cousin, Bruce Wayne, as Batwoman. Still holding a flame for her ex-girlfriend, Sophie, Kate uses everything in her power to combat the dark machinations of the psychotic Alice (Rachel Skarsten), who’s always somewhere slipping between sane and insane. Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate soars through the shadowed streets of Gotham as Batwoman. But don’t call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a savior, she must first overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.”

UPDATE: The first full trailer has been posted!
