Fox’s X-Men Show has Tentative Title

Fox’s X-Men Live action show has a title, although it may be changed by the time it airs. The show’s tentative title is called “Gifted”. Producer Lauren Shuler-Donner tweeted this photo of the show’s cast while revealing the title. The show follows a family that joins up with a mutant underground after discovering that the family’s children have mutant powers. The show seeks to tie into the larder X-men movieverse, as several familiar names from the comics have been cast such as Thunderbird, Blink and Polaris. As of now, there is no primere date set for the show.

Logan Trailer

Here’s our first look at Hugh Jackman’s last outing as Wolverine. While it looks somewhat inspired by the Old Man Logan storyline, it looks like most of its inspiration comes from Clint Eastwood westerns and Mad Max. It’s definitely a different take on the superhero genre and could be fitting for Wolverine’s last hurrah. We also get a glimpse of Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier, Boyd Holbrook as villain Donald Pierce, and a little girl that some believe could be X-23. Check it out and tell us what you think.

Legion Headed to FX in Early 2017

legion

While Agent Carter and Marvel’s Most Wanted have been canceled, next year will see at least one new Marvel character hit the small screen. An 8 episode season of the X-men spinoff Legion has been ordered by FX, and it will be produced as a joint effort between Fox and Marvel Studios. With showrunner Noah Hawley (Fargo) at the helm, Legion stars Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens as the title character, who in the comics is the illegitimate son of professor Charles Xavier. He’s a mutant with multiple personality disorder, and each personality has it’s own power. Longtime Marvel fans know he’s responsible for not one, but two Alternate realities, the Age of Apocalypse, and the Age of X. It remains to be seen how this is incorporated in the show. The status of Marvel and Fox’s other show, Hellfire, is up in the air as it’s two showrunners, Evan Katz and Manny Coto departed to work on 24 Legacy.

Legion and Hellfire Coming to TV

xmlegacy

This past August, there were reports that Fox was interested in bringing a live action X-men series to TV. Today, we got details on two new series that are coming to TV thanks to a partnership between Fox and Marvel TV. Hellfire will be coming to Fox while Legion will be coming to FX with a pilot already being ordered. Both projects are executive produced by X-men movie director Bryan Singer, with Legion having Noah Hawley (Fargo) attached to it as head writer. Hellfire will take place during the late 60s and follow the exploits of the club of millionaire mutants that was introduced in X-men First class, and is features prominently in the comics. A special agent investigates the group after learning that a powerful woman is in charge of the group. Legion will tell the story of Charles Xavier’s illegitimate son, David Haller, a powerful mutant with schizophrenia. While there are obviously no details in the way of date, stars, timeslot, or even if these shows are in X-men movie continuity, this is certainly exciting news for fans of Marvel’s merry mutants. It’s even more surprising to see Marvel TV and Fox working together in spite of Fox’s stinginess over the X-men and Fantastic Four rights.

Rights to Daredevil in film have reverted back to Marvel Studios

Daredevil Born Again

Marvel Studios head, Kevin Feige, has confirmed in an interview with Newsarama that the rights to Daredevil, the Man Without Fear, have reverted back to Marvel Studios.

It was reported that Fox Studios had a deadline of October 10, 2012 in order to retain the rights to the character. It was widely believed that the deadline was missed, but no official word came out until Mr. Feige’s comments at an Iron Man 3 press junket. Daredevil is not the first Marvel character whose rights have reverted back to Marvel Studios. The Punisher and Blade are on that list as well. Fox still retains the rights to the X-Men and the Fantastic Four. Spider-Man and Ghost Rider remain with Sony. The rights to these properties can all revert back to Marvel Studios if no film is in active development by a certain deadline for each. These agreements were all made prior to the formation of Marvel Studios in 2006.

The Simpsons Arcade Game – Keep Playing LIVE!

Don’t have a cow, man.


The Simpsons Arcade game finally invades Xbox Live Arcade and Playstation Network and we took advantage of the four player simultaneous play. Instead of the normal review of the game you’re used to seeing on Keep Playing, this is an entire play through. Also, you’ll hear running commentary from our (sometimes) podcast lineup of Adam, Ernie, and Zero along side myself. We’re going to dish on Simpsons trivia, point out some relevant gameplay facts, and make crass jokes.

Enjoy! This episode has a 40 minute run time, so I’ll save you the trouble and let you know the inevitable Terminator reference is at 7:58.

Napoleon Dynamite animated series first impressions

Tonight Fox premiered the first two episodes of the new Napoleon Dynamite TV series. Is this a new hit for Fox’s Animation Domination block or will it go the way of Allen Gregory?

I’m a huge fan of the Napoleon Dynamite movie, so I was both worried and excited at the prospect of a show. Despite the excitement of an animated version of a favourite movie of mine, there’s always the concern that this would turn out to be a piece of garbage that’s an insult to the film, like other animated series based on great movies such as Spaceballs and Strange Brew.

It’s still a bit early to make any final judgements, but I found the show to be pretty funny. Though not as consistently funny as the film, each episode included some pretty solid jokes which made me laugh, which really is all you can ask for from a comedy. The show was reminiscent of the movie, and although some dialogue seemed unnaturally repetitive from what we’ve heard, the general tone seemed pretty consistent, while adding a certain level of cartoon silliness as we can only expect from such a show.
