As expected, a lot has happened and some of it is a little bittersweet. We learned earlier that Andrew Lincoln was leaving the show. He wanted to spend more time with his family and with a show like this the whole work/life balance must take a hit.
The show will return October 7, which is the last day of NYCC.
Casting-wise, We learned of the introduction of Alpha and she will be portrayed by Samantha Morton. Greg Nicotero stated that means Beta may not be that far behind.
One last thing, Andrew Lincoln mentioned that this show has always been an ensemble and that fans should continue with the show…even once he is gone. However, as a fan, what shows fail to understand is that we fall in love with characters and want to follow them on their journey. So, once you start pecking away the characters we met in Season 1 and 2…it is really hard to stay invested.
Now, Star Trek: Discovery
Captain Pike is taking over the Discovery, say que?
Spock needs help? Dios mio.
And Tig Notaro!
To keep fans interested in the Star Trek-verse, since we will not see Discovery until early 2019, CBS All Access will get four new 10-15 minute episodes that will air in Fall of 2018.
Cloak and Dagger has been renewed for a second season. The show will be back in Spring 2019 with 10 episodes.
Here’s the trailer to the much anticipated Glass:
There are some details about the Venom movie panel, courtesy of THR.
Items of note:
- Riot will be in the movie.
- Venom is part of a world that Sony is creating around Spider-Man world. Jared Leto is in Morbius and there will be a Silver & Black movie.
- Also, do not count out a possible Venom and Spider-Man movie.
The movie will come out October 5th.
I believe the biggest news of the day really revolved around the James Gunn and his firing from Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3. He made light of pedophilia and rape a decade ago and what everyone fails to understand is that everything comes back to bite you in the ass. So, you have to be mindful of what you put on social media…at all times.
The good thing is that James Gunn accepted Disney’s decision. He could have gone all Markle and making a bigger mess out of the situation.
