Doctor Who is back!
The panel was held today at San Diego Comic-Con and here are some of the highlights:
1. When Jodie, aka as the Doctor , entered the room…they knew she was the Doctor.
2. This Doctor is a pillar of hope and is in love with life and is full of joy.
3. New Doctor = New Screwdriver.
4. There will be no old fan favorites in the big baddies department. We will be seeing new creatures as this Doctor and her friends will be on new adventures on standalone adventures.
That’s right! Dick Grayson said,”F!ck Batman.”
And that is how you break away from the pack…of DC TV shows.
There was no panel for this show, unfortunately. Also, in order to watch this foul-mouthed do-gooder and his crime-fighting friends, you will have to sign up to the DC streaming service.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars:
Are you ready for the resurrection of a fan favorite?
This was a welcome surprise. Unfortunately, in order to see this…you will have to sign up to the Disney streaming service.
Matt Groening, The Simpson & Futurama, goes way back. This will air on Netflix.
We have been told that by George R.R. Martin that this is “Psycho in space” and it looks like a nightmare scenario, indeed. This will air on Syfy.
Yes, that is Tom Felton of Hogwarts fame, but let us digress. In Origin, a chilling new original series from the producers of The Crown & Lost, we meet a group of troubled passengers as they wake up on a damaged spaceship abandoned in deep space. Each having left behind a dark past in search of a fresh start on a newly colonized planet, they’re desperate to survive at all costs. But as their terrifying situation spirals into paranoia, they come to realize that the greatest threat to their dream of starting over – and indeed their lives – might actually be within their midst… This will air on YouTube.
Some news to make note of:
- It was confirmed that this will be Andrew Lincoln’s last season on the Walking Dead.
- Greg Berlanti is going to develop a Batwoman series for TV. This character will be introduced in December cross-over event. Does that mean that we will eventually meet the Caped Crusader and his little sidekick?
- Earlier this year, we learned that Geoff Johns resigned as DC’s Chief Creative Officer so he could pursue writing and producing. Well, we learned that he will be working on the new Stargirl series that Greg Berlanti will be the executive producer of with Geoff Johns for the DC streaming service. It will air in 2019 and consist of 13 episodes. Do we even need cable anymore?
- Fans of Marvel’s Iron Fist show, that airs on Netflix, prepare yourselves. The bad guy for the upcoming season:
The Daughters of the Dragon, Misty and Colleen, would unite in season 2, which will premiere on September 7th.
5. Casting News: DeadPool 2’s Zazie Beetz ( the very lucky Domino) has joined Joaquin Phoenix in his turn as Joker. With Andrew Lincoln going off into sunset, the Walking Dead is adding to its roster with the additions of Fantastic Beast’s Dan Fogler and Into the Badlands’ Eleanor Matsuura for the 9th season. This will be an interesting transition…I am still not happy about Glenn’s passing…and do not get me started on Carl.
We will keep you posted on whatever catches our eye this weekend!
