  1. Batwoman is coming to the "Arrowverse". It's not certain of being its own show yet, but they are casting the character for a crossover event in December with a view to spinning her out to her own show. It's being developed by Greg Berlanti, of all the other shows, and Caroline Dries, of The Vampire Diaries.
  2. Amazon come along with another hero show, based on a Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson comic. The show is developed by Eric Kripke, Evan Goldberg, and Seth Rogen. Stars Karl Urban, Elizabeth Shue, Antony Starr and a bunch more.
  3. http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/tech/news/a552739/lovefilm-instant-to-become-amazon-prime-instant-video.html I used to be with Lovefilm, but left when they stopped renting games. At the time their streaming video service was nice as an added bonus on the subscription, but not something I'd have paid for on its own due to a poor library and apps only available on a very limted number of devices with rubbish update support. Not sure if this will tempt me away from Netflix, their original programming (House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Arrested Development) blow away Amazon's rather uninspiring efforts in that area and without the introductory offer it's actually more expensive than Netflix (only by about £7 but still). The main argument for that price is the Amazon Prime delivery which i wouldn't particularly want. Still, more competition is good for us customers, not sure I'd want to be subscribed to two streaming services, but if they significantly improve their library I might take a look eventually.
  4. Personally enjoyed it. The bin burp and the severed arm wrestling were a bit shit, but otherwise it worked well as an introduction to the characters. Some people have criticized the somewhat hectic pace of the story but I personally feel that the whole intent was to introduce Rose and the Doctor and having her get caught up in the action right from the beginning allowed this to happen with plenty of pace. I don't think that a detailed story PLUS the introduction of the characters would've worked if they'd tried to squeeze it all into the first 45 minute episode. My 10 yr old son sat glued to the TV the entire 45 minutes, so on that count I think it worked as family entertainment - after all, if the programme only tried to appeal to the (now grown up) people who watched the old series it would probably fail terribly - the producers have to attract a new audience as well as catering for the original fans if it's to succeed. Seems to have trounced Ant 'n' Dec in the ratings though and almost all the word of mouth I've seen has been positive (apart from the balls-up that allowed Graham Norton's voice to intrude - I thought the baddies were Autons, not Nortons...). Have to see how it holds up over the coming weeks. What'd everyone else think?
  5. It was mentioned in the movie thread a while ago, but there's some more concrete plans coming together for the TV version now. Clement and Waititi are both involved, with Clement writing and Waititi directing. Kayvan Novak, Matt Berry, Natasia Demetriou, Harvey Guillen have been cast. Just a pilot order for now.
  6. A pilot for this was mentioned in the movie thread over a year ago, but now TNT have picked it up as a series. Stars Jennifer Connelly and a bunch of others.
  7. Star Trek adult animation. From Rick and Morty head writer Mike McMahan. It'll focus on the support crew on one of Starfleet's least important ships. McMahan is also the guy behind that twitter account which posted fake episode plots for an eighth TNG season.
  8. Thought it was worth separating discussion of the upcoming TV show from The Avengers thread as it's now been given an official title and synopsis and more news/pictures/video should start trickling out over the coming weeks. A new piece of news that's just come out is that J. August Richards (Gunn from Angel) has also been cast in a 'secret' role. Let the speculation begin. My wild guess, maybe Luke Cage, that's a character that would allow them to add some superpowers to the mix but one who might not support a film in their own right.
  9. Greg Berlanti and DC Universe (DC's upcoming streaming service) are making a live action Doom Patrol series. It's ordered direct-to-series, with 13 episodes. Apparently it also gives Berlanti a new record of 14 shows airing.
  10. http://variety.com/2016/tv/news/robert-downey-jr-nic-pizzolatto-hbo-tv-1201836724/ Robert Downey Jr. had been trying to get a Perry Mason movie going at WB for a few years, but now it looks like it'll happen as a series at HBO, with True Detective's Nic Pizzolatto involved.
  11. They're giving a live-action Avatar another go, after that movie which doesn't exist. It's being run by the original animated show's creators/showrunners and will be on Netflix, in partnership with Nickelodeon. They specifically mention a culturally-appropriate, non-whitewashed cast and that Netflix are backing them in their vision to go even deeper into the characters, story, action, and world-building. Also this concept art
  12. First two episodes are out there. Have been for a couple of days, so there doesn't seem to have been much buzz around it. I've not watched them myself yet, but a friend, who hated the movie, says these two episodes are decent enough.
  13. I'd been seeing stories for a while about a new DC Universe Harley Quinn cartoon but didn't pay much attention. I just knew Penny off Big Bang Theory was playing the main role. Happened upon a trailer this morning and it's not what I expected, being full of swearing and violence. They've assembled a pretty impressive cast too Kaley Cuoco as Harley Alan Tudyk as Joker and Clayface Diedrich Bader as Batman Jason Alexander as Cy Borgman Christopher Meloni as James Gordon Tony Hale as Doctor Psycho and Felix Faust Giancarlo Esposito as Lex Luthor Wanda Sykes as Queen of Fables J. B. Smoove as Frank the Plant James Adomian as Bane James Wolk as Superman And a bunch more, I think some from other cartoons too
  14. Another revival! Ralph Macchio and William Zabka have bills to pay are back as Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence. After competition from mainly streaming services, it's going to YouTube Red, the YouTube subscription service. Down-and-out Johnny reopens the Cobra Kai dojo and reignited his rivalry with a successful Daniel, who has struggles of his own. It's going to be a 10 episode half hour comedy series. Yes, comedy. Karate too of course. It's being written by the minds behind Hot Tub Time Machine and Harold and Kumar.
  15. It's HBO, so there's reason for hope, right? It's only early in talks, but Damon Lindelof, fresh off The Leftovers, is currently attached too.

  17. New workplace comedy based on Donald Trump's announcement of a new Space Force. That's where we are now. Created by Steve Carell and Greg Daniels of The Office (US version) and starring Carell. It's about the people tasked with creating the Space Force after the announcement.
  18. This sounds like an ambitious plan. HBO with Tom Hanks' Playtone making this Gaiman book. I don't know the book, so can't say what it would be like on screen. But right off the bat they're saying it will be 6 seasons. From one book. 10 - 12 one hour long episodes per seasons with a budget of $35-40 million per season.
  19. http://variety.com/2017/film/global/rick-okon-lizzie-caplan-sky-das-boot-sequel-1202479418/ Sky Germany, Italy and UK are teaming up for a €25m 8-part series. Obviously not a direct sequel to the original, but continuing the war in 1942 with the young crew of another U-boat. Could be interesting, but I'm not sure it needs to be connected to Das Boot.

    Another show joining the DC Universe shows. Not sure it'll be connected to Titans or Doom Patrol. This one involves the Justice Society of America. Brec Bassinger is in the title role and her alter-ego Courtney Whitmore. Also Luke Wilson as Pat Dugan, pilot of Stripe, a 15-foot robot he invented. Lou Ferrigno Jr. as Rex Tyler/Hourman, Brian Stapf as Ted Grant/Wildcat, Henry Thomas as Charles McNider/Dr Mid-Nite. Amy Smart also playing Barbara Whitmore, Courtney's mother and Pat Dugan's new wife. Also Joy Osmanski, Neil Hopkins and Nelson Lee as Tigress, Sportsmaster and Dragon King, members of The Injustice Society. The show is being run by Geoff Johns. Won't be coming until early next year. Official synopsis First official pic unveiled at Wondercon yesterday

  22. On 6 May (and 7 May on Sky), HBO and Sky start a new drama of the Chernobyl disaster. Not sure how many episodes (edit- 5 parts), but it's billed as a miniseries. Stars Jared Harris, Stellan Skarsgard and Emily Watson, playing a Kremlin scientist, government official and nuclear physicist respectively. Looks like a few other familiar British and Irish faces in the trailer too.
  23. It's coming back! In the form of a sequel. As you've probably guessed from the name, it's in LA this time, in 1938. Mexican-American folklore.
  24. Upgrade seems to have got good word of mouth on the forum. Now it's to get a TV follow-up from Leigh Whannell and Tim Walsh. Set a few years after the movie with an evolved STEM and a new host. https://deadline.com/2020/05/upgrade-tv-series-sequel-leigh-whannell-sci-fi-movie-blumhouse-ucp-writers-room-1202933886/
  25. He's bringing Wipe back for a special, with Philomena Cunk and Barry Shitpeas. https://deadline.com/2020/04/antiviral-wipe-charlie-brooker-revives-screen-wipe-bbc-1202913409/
