We knew that Paul Feig was developing an all female-led Ghostbusters reboot from a script by Katie Dippold and that Melissa McCarthy was in early talks to lead the cast. It seems that Paul has “tweeted” who will be in the cast.
It looks like the cast will have a SNL bent….
Current Saturday Night Live cast members Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, as well as SNL alum Kristin Wiig looks like will be joining McCarthy in the reboot.
The film is looking to shoot this Summer in New York
What do you think of the new cast?
The big news that David Tennant has been cast in the new Marvel / Netflix series A.K.A Jessica Jones, as the villain, The Purple Man, has almost every press site in the UK and the USA reporting on it.
According to the recent issue of Empire Magazine, there is a pre-credit battle scene with the Avengers in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
The superhero team supposedly pays a visit to Hydra operative Baron von Strucker, who is played by Thomas Kretschmann. He has been hiding out in an East European castle.
We’ve seen a couple of the scenes of the aftermath but didnt realize what it was connected to. Now we know … The Avengers are flying back to New York City in Tony Stark’s quinjet and everyone seems to be very distraught. Here’s a description of what has happened: :
As Stark is flying the ship, [Robert] Downey Jr. goes and sits in the pilot’s seat. [Jeremy] Renner lies down on a table in the middle of the jet and clutches his stomach while a fake drip is attached to his arm. It’s clear that, whatever went down at von Strucker’s, it has left the Avengers’ ace archer in considerable distress. As the dialogue plays out, it becomes clear that [Mark Ruffalo‘s] Bruce Banner has Hulked out, or what he calls a “code green,” during the assault on Strucker’s fortress, and is deeply troubled by it. [Scarlett Johansson‘s] Natasha tries to reassure him – “If you hadn’t been there, there would have been double the casualties.” Banner grimaces, and replies with, “You know, sometimes exactly what I want to hear isn’t exactly what I want to hear.” Seeking back-up, Natasha turns to [Chris Hemsworth‘s] Norse god. “Thor, report on the Hulk?” she asks. Hemsworth immediately lights up and lets rip with a rousing tribute to all the violence unleashed by the Hulk, filled with words like “screams” and “victims” and “whimpering”. Seeing that it has the opposite effect to that intended on Banner, the God of Thunder turns God of Blunter, stammering and stumbling, digging himself deeper into a hole.
Makes a lot more sense now when it is put into context….
Does this make you more excited in seeing the movie?
With comic book related shows like Flash, Arrow, Gotham, The Walking Dead, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. all becoming hits, according to TVInsider, Fox is working on getting the X-Men their own television series.
Fox Entertainment Chair Gary Newman stated they are in negotiations to develop an X-Men television series. Even though Fox’s parent company 20th Century Fox owns the films rights, the problem with all of this is that a live action television series needs a blessing from Marvel. Do you think the issue with Disney/Marvel not having the film rights would be a problem.
According to Newman, things are looking up though:
“It’s in negotiations,” Newman confirms. “We’re cautiously optimistic, we had a good meeting with them. That will not be on a fast track creatively. This is just the deal, now we have to find the creative.”
Remember though that this is the very beginning of things. There is a lot more to go through before you can say this a definite.
Could this be a show with “lesser” X-Men characters featured or do you feel that the main characters must be in it?
Just got over 60,000 like on Tumblr…. here is why
So ladies …if you ever feel bad about yourself, just think about Wonder Woman …..
It’s hard to guess just how this will happen since not only does the new show take place across the country in Los Angeles, but supposedly takes place more than half a decade in the past, at the start of the outbreak…
We’ll just have to wait and see……
With the Sherlock Holmes Christmas Special coming later this year, new set photos have started to come out.
Why are they wearing these period pieces? We’ll have to wait until the special comes out …..
Here is that real-live Bud Light Pac-Man commercial that we talked about previously…..
A random guy gets picked to play….. what does he get if he beats the level?

RED HOOD is Coming!
So far Gotham has not had costumes on it. In an interview with CBR, showrunner Bruno Heller explains that the Red Hood’s inclusion will begin to implement the show’s “costume strand.” He was asked if Season 1 would remain costume free, he gave the following response:
“I’m looking at several years. So we’re in no hurry to [do that] — there’s going to be an episode that involves the Red Hood, which picks up that strand, the costume strand, and sort of gives a kind of philosophical base, if that’s not too pretentious a word. Why costumes? What’s the power of costumes? What’s the power of a mask? All of that groundwork will be laid sort of culturally for that side of the DC Universe before we start rolling into the more spectacular spandex type of deal.
“Because — I can’t remember where I read it — the reason that the comic book characters wore costumes is because in the very rough printing that they used to have in newspapers, that’s the only way you could make a character pop. ‘Oh, that’s Batman, that’s Superman, that’s Dick Tracy.’ On TV, you don’t need that same color and signature to make people pop. It’s the characters that pop. So we’re never going to be a full-on costume drama. We’re going to be a full-on character drama. Like Batman, there’s the super powers, super will, and there’s super strength, but only on a human level. Not on a supernatural level. It’s very important, again, for the longevity of the show, that we take this step by step.
Their take on not making a full on costumed drama is very interesting….
Heller goes on to excitedly tease the first season finale, saying:
“We’d always planned for the end of the season to be as big and spectacular and as shocking and as frightening and as sensational as it possibly can be. And we’re going ahead with that plan.”
Could this mean that the Joker is coming???
