Game of Thrones Prequel Starts Casting and More…

We are starting off with casting. As we slowly wind down 2018, we are finally hearing about casting for the much anticipated prequel to Game of Thrones. The news spread like wildfire and now we are wondering how Naomi Watts‘ character, a charismatic socialite hiding a dark secret, plays into the history of Westeros. What we do know of the story is that it predates, by thousands of years, the story that we all know and love. The new tale chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. Intriguing.

Jaime Murray has been cast as Theresa Walker for Gotham‘s last season. She has a dark secret and she will be Jim’s nemesis. TVLine

Pennyworth continues to add to their evildoers. Jason Flemming will be playing a villain called Lord Harwood. Deadline

Movie News: 

As we patiently wait to see Overlord on November 9, the director of the movie (Julius Avery) has been tapped to write and direct Flash Gordon. Did you see the 1980 movie? It is a cult classic that is based on the hero of a space opera adventure comic strip created by and originally drawn by Alex Raymond. It was created to compete with the Buck Rogers adventure strip. Variety

A few hints of whats to come in the upcoming Birds of Prey movie, Director Cathy Yan spoke at a conference and stated the following:

  • The script has a lot of dark humor and as expected, there is a theme of female empowerment running throughout it.
  •  Cassandra Cain, a ward of Barbara Gordon who inherits the Batgirl costume in the comics. Deadline

Upcoming TV Shows:

We’ve known that Disney was planning their own streaming service and that they were going to have shows that revolved around some key Marvel heroes. We now know that one of the shows Marvel is currently developing is a limited series centered on the Winter Soldier and Falcon. TVGuide

Have a Happy Halloween Everyone!

Superhero Scoop: Season 2 Trailer of Iron Fist and What’s Up with Pennyworth?

Yep! There is the outfit we all know and love from the comics!

The trailer is much darker in tone, which is interesting because Danny has typically embraced a much lighter in tone persona. This is a guy who looks like he regrets getting the Iron Fist. But, since he has it, his ultimate goal is to try to just keep the mean streets of New York City peaceful. His main obstacles in this second season are:

  1. Davos, who is hell-bent on getting the Iron Fist power back. Especially after seeing what happened to Kunlun.
  2. The Meachums. We saw Joy in the trailer and it will be interesting to see her plot line play out. We also know that Ward will be in the second season.

Luckily for Colleen and Danny, they have Misty to aid them in their plight.

We learned a few months ago that Bruce Wayne’s Father Figure/Butler will be getting his own show on EPIX. Pennyworth will get a 10 episode order and we just learned that they will begin filming the much-anticipated show in the fall. The show will tell the story of the beloved DC character during the 1960s, when he is a former special-forces officer living in London and working for Thomas Wayne.

No casting news…yet.
