INDIE MAN SAYS: BIONIC MAN #7

Source: Just About Comics | Categories: The Bionic Man | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment

Smith and Hester’s writing is entertaining overall, slower and more poignant when it is called for but upbeat and suspenseful when action is needed. They have, for me, a knack of keeping things on a very human level despite the subject matter. These two guys do ‘street level’ quite well.

The artwork is excellent no matter what is called for. Lau is an artistic technician of the type that I enjoy most. Clean crisp linework that is energetic and full of expression. Nunes adds just the right touches so that what is seen is understood but what we sense along the edges and in shadows adds to the overall feel and doesn’t become the headline.

I do recommend the book for those that appreciate solid storytelling and compelling art. You need not have foreknowledge of The Bionic Man to enjoy the offerings of Smith et al. For the full review: Just About Comics

KATHRYN LEIGH SCOTT TO APPEAR ON MARVELíS AGENTS OF SHIELD

Source: Bleeding Cool | Categories: Marvel | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


This is an interesting story for a unique source – a Dark Shadows fan site – that has information about Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD.

The report says that actress Kathryn Leigh Scott, who played Maggie Evans on Dark Shadows, has been cast in the mid-season premiere of Agents of SHIELD scheduled to air March 3rd. We don’t know who she is playing, but she had this to say:

“The show is so secretive that I was never given a script, only my dialogue! I am going to respect their desire to keep the story a surprise … besides, I can’t provide a synopsis because I have no idea what the story is. My episode will air mid-season and I will supply more information as I get it.”

When the show does return, it will be roughly two months prior to Avengers: Age of Ultron so it is possible that plot for the episode and maybe even her role is starting to set up for the film. We know how drastically Captain America: The Winter Soldier changed the show last season, it would only stand to reason that the show will have strong ties to the Avengers sequel.

'CONSTANTINE' SHOWRUNNER ASKS FOR SUPPORT AFTER FIRST SEASON ENDED AT 13 EPISODES

Source: ICv2 | Categories: Constantine | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


Constantine showrunner Daniel Cerone is asking fans for support to ensure that the show returns for a second season, after production on the first season was ended at the original order of 13 episodes. The order might have been expected to be increased to a full 26 episodes, but the show premiered in late October, and the network was not ready to increase its commitment (or cancel the show) after only four episodes had aired. So production was halted after 13 episodes, but the show still has a chance to return next year, according to Deadline.

Initial ratings on the show have been solid, but apparently not strong enough to get an immediate vote of confidence from NBC.

Now a full-throated effort to rally fans has begun, starting with Cerone’s Twitter page, where he’s been using the #SaveConstantine hashtage and urging fans to watch to keep the ratings up and convince NBC to continue the show. “We will return if enuf fans watch live ‘n rewatch (stream till you drop),” he said. “NBC wants our success and DC is beast. Won’t say Die.”
'JUSTICE LEAGUE: DARK' SCRIPT COMPLETE

Guillermo del Toro has confirmed that the screenplay for his DC Comics Justice League: Dark adaptation has been completed, and has been sent to Warner Bros. for weekend reads, Forbes is reporting.

Tentatively titled Dark Universe, updates have been sporadic, with the most recent being del Toro’s confirmation this summer that the project was still in the works. He confirmed at that time that the film will not be set in continuity with the TV adaptation of NBC’s Constantine, which itself is currently sitting in a bit of limbo.

The Dark Universe film was not explicitly named in Warner Bros. recent five year date reservation slate.
TEXAS DA COMICS THEFT - THE SEQUEL

A second investigator from the Harris County, Texas District Attorney’s office has been indicted in the theft of valuable comics stolen from evidence, according to The Houston Chronicle, Dustin Deutsch was indicted by a Harris County grand jury this week for felony theft by a public servant and tampering with evidence.

The comics came from the collection of Anthony Chiafalo, a corrupt attorney who was convicted of embezzling $9 million from a client and using the money to buy collectables (among other goodies), including a Detective #27 worth $850,000 and other key books.

Deutsch’s former partner at the DA’s office, Lonnie Blevins, stole comics worth over $5,000 from an evidence locker for the Chiofalo case and was found out after selling the comics at a convention in Chicago. Blevins pleaded guilty in the theft in May, and is currently awaiting sentencing. Blevins’ sentencing was delayed because he was cooperating with investigators; his former partner’s indictment is presumably an outcome of that cooperation. Deutsch was suspended after Blevins’ arrest, and later resigned, but was not accused in the incident until now. (Via ICv2)
JAMES CAMERON SAYS AVATAR SEQUELS WILL MAKE 'YOU S**T YOURSELF'

Avatar director James Cameron says his planned trilogy of sequels will have a very, um, specific effect on the viewer.

"They’re gonna be bitchin’. You will s**t yourself with your mouth wide open,” the Oscar-winning filmmaker told Empire.

Cameron also said that he has decided against shooting the film in the 60 frames-per-second frame rate, opting to shoot it at 48 fps instead.

He also revealed the curious process of working with four screenwriters Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, Josh Friedman and Shane Salerno on writing Avatar 2-4,

"I think we met for seven months and we whiteboarded out every scene in every film together,” Cameron said, “and I didn’t assign each writer which film they were going to work on until the last day. I knew if I assigned them their scripts ahead of time, they’d tune out every time we were talking about the other movie."

The adaptation is being written/executive produced by Mick Betancourt (Necessary Roughness, Law & Order, SVU)
