Boardwalk Empire alum Stephen Graham is set to topline USA Network’s drama pilot Brooklyn Animal Control, based on the IDW Publishing comic created by JT Petty. Additionally, Brian Kirk (Game Of Thrones) has signed on to direct the pilot and will also executive produce alongside David S. Goyer.
Written and executive produced by Petty,Brooklyn Animal Control follows the inner workings of a secret subdivision of the NYPD that functions as social services for some of the city’s most unique citizens — werewolves.

He is repped by ICM Partners, LINK and UK’s Independent Talent Group . Brooklyn Animal Control is a co-production with Universal Cable Productions and IDW Entertainment. The pilot also is executive produced by Circle of Confusion’s Rick Jacobs and David Alpert and IDW Entertainment’s David Ozer and Ted Adams.

MEET THE SUPER POWERED FAMILY NEXT DOOR IN THE VISION #110/06/15 @ 7:02 pm EST
Love them or hate them, variant covers have been a fixture in the industry for years, with no signs of slowing down. They're deployed at publishers big and small; Marvel and DC Comics both regularly unveil monthly themed variants (think Marvel's hip-hop variants or DC's movie poster tributes), and commonly promote new launches with multiple variant covers.
So now that Marvel has had action figure variants, manga variants, '90s homage variants and Gwen Stacy variants, what's next? In either a shameless marketing ploy or subversive piece of meta-commentary (or both?), the publisher looks to take things to a different level by telling an actual story over the course of 20 variant covers, equaling the length of a typical single issue. And what better character than Deadpool, a character extremely familiar with appearing on variant covers?
CBR has the exclusive
first details on the "Deadpool Secret Comic," which will launch in November with "Deadpool" #1, and continue for the first 20 issues of the series; with no wordyet on if the story will be collected once it's all released. The story will be told by series writerGerry Duggan and artist Scott Koblish (Mike Hawthorne illustrates the interiors of the book), and is said by Marvel to introduce a new character "that is already vitally important to every Marvel Comic in recent history."
"Koblish is the perfect artist to smash down the last bit of the fourth wall... this is Deadpool's final frontier," Duggan said. "We're doing it for the fans. And the angry letters."

SONY PICTURES EYES ‘DANGER MOUSE’ FOR AN ANIMATED FILM10/06/15 @ 6:54 pm EST
What does it mean to be human? Is it to have emotions? Is it to have a family? This November, join Marvel’s synthezoid super hero as he searches for the answers in THE VISION #1
– a brand new ongoing series from writer Tom King and artist Gabriel Hernandez Walta! Be there as the longtime Avenger embarks on his most harrowing journey yet – being a family man.

Maybe Vision wants to be ordinary, he wants to be human – and what’s more ordinary than family? So Vision creates a family, finds them a home and tries to live an ordinary life. But that act, creating life, leads to problems he could not possibly imagine…”
Meet his wife, Virginia. His two teen twins – Viv and Vin. They look like him. They have his powers. They share in his greatest ambition – to be normal. But they are anything but. They’re the family next door and they have the power to destroy us all. And they’re holding a secret. What could possibly go wrong? Behold The Visions! Making their debut this November in the can’t-miss THE VISION #1

Shortly following the television show’s United Kingdom debut, Sony Pictures has picked up “Danger Mouse” for an animated feature. According to Tracking Board, the movie may offer clues about the origins of the titular character. Original Film, Fremantle Media and Neal Mortiz will produce.

Announced last year, the new series updates the world’s greatest super-spy for the 21st century. Alexander Armstrong and Kevin Eldon star as Danger Mouse and Penfold, joined by Stephen Fry as Colonel K, Ed Gaughan as Baron Silas von Greenback, David Lamb as Stiletto Mafiosa and the Narrator, Rasmus Hardiker as Count Duckula, John Oliver as Doctor Augustus P. Crumhorn III, and Lena Headey as Jeopardy Mouse.
The updated series currently airs on CBBC and will be available on Netflix this spring.

JOE ROBERT COLE IN TALKS TO WRITE "BLACK PANTHER"10/06/15 @ 3:50 pm EST
Cynical industry journalists turned gawking fanboys at the Mipcom television trade fair on Tuesday night when Fox screened – in its world premiere – the first episode of the hotly-anticipated return of The X-Files
creator Chris Carter
attended the launch in Cannes, saying returning to the show, which went off the air in 2002, felt “surreal” but that it was “a dream come true” to bring back FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, played by original stars David Duchovny
and Gillian Anderson
“I've been doing this for a little over a third of my life. So its obviously very important for me so I jumped at the chance to do it,” Carter said.
The audience packed into Cannes' Grand Auditorium broke out in spontaneous applause multiple times - including when Duchovny and Anderson first appeared and the crowd whooped and cheered as the closing credits rolled. But perhaps the biggest applause came earlier, when the opening credits – with the X-Files
trademark intro music – hit the screen.
In a treat for X-Files
' traditionalists, Carter has kept the series' original opening credits exactly as they were when the show first aired back in 1993.
“We thought about doing some changes to the original credits but then it seemed like like sacrilege,” Carter said. “Those credits were on 202 episodes. They belong on these next six.”

EXCLUSIVE: FLASH TANGLES WITH ATOM SMASHER IN NEW "THE FLASH" PREMIERE CLIP10/06/15 @ 3:46 pm EST
Joe Robert Cole is currently in negotiations to write the screenplay for "Black Panther," as reported by The Wrap. Cole comes from the same in-house writer's program that Nicole Perlman was part of when she wrote the first draft of "Guardians of the Galaxy." The announcement mentions that Cole was rumored to have written a script for"Inhumans," and a Collider report from last year indicates that the rumor may be true. The Wrap has heard that Cole's "Inhumans" script is not expected to be used.
So far the only sure thing about "Black Panther" is its lead, Chadwick Boseman. No other actors have been cast for the film, although Andy Serkis is expected to reprise his "Avengers: Age of Ultron" role of Ulysses Klaue, a character known for being a Black Panther foe in the comics.
The search for a director for "Black Panther" has also not resulted in a contract; "Selma" director Ava DuVernay passed on the picture and, according to the Wrap's report, F. Gary Gray ("Straight Outta Compton") is apparently also out of the running, possibly due to hispotential involvement in the "Fast and Furious" franchise.
"Black Panther" opens on July 6, 2018.

GOTHAM'S BRUNO HELLER: WE’VE ABSOLUTELY CONSIDERED THE POSSIBILITY OF A FEMALE JOKER10/06/15 @ 3:41 pm EST
Ahead of tonight's Season 2 premiere of "The Flash" on The CW, CBR presented an exclusive
clip from the episode that sees Barry Allen's costumed alter ego (Grant Gustin) tangling with Atom Smasher (Adam Copeland, a.k.a. former WWE Champion Edge) as Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), Martin Stein (Victor Garber), Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes) and Iris West (Candice Patton) look on.
The Fastest Man Alive gives his all to the new villain but quickly learns turnabout is fair play. Luckily, Flash's allies have his back and he might just make it out of this skirmish in time to enjoy the rest of his second season.

TRICIA HELFER JOINS "POWERS" AS FBI SPECIAL AGENT LANGE10/06/15 @ 3:32 pm EST
Yes, despite his expert protrayal at the hands of Cameron Monaghan, who seemed to take the best of multiple Jokers and put them into the character of Jerome, the young man with the sadistic laugh died last night on Gotham
. The character, then, serves to inspire the next attempt - or two or five or ten attempts - at becoming the ultimate villain.
When discussing the death of Jerome with Gotham
showrunner Bruno Heller, though, we had to ask about the ComicBook.com theory that Barbara Kean could, in fact, become The Joker on the series. After all, Heller has said in the past that The Joker would be inspired by other people, and Barbara worked very closely with Jerome these last few episodes. She even commented to mastermind Theo Galavan, "I don’t know, the kid had a way about him" when he mentioned Jerome's whole modus operandi.
At the end of a phone interview with Heller, I asked about the theory. The writer and producer known for his candid nature gave a still-somehow-surprisingly-candid response: It's completely feasible. Aside from the evidence already on Gotham
, and the last three weeks of additional support for the theory about Barbara, there is some comic book support as well. If you think of Gotham
as an alternate reality to the main DC Comics world, in another alternate reality, Flashpoint
, there was already a female Joker. In that world, Bruce Wayne was killed in the alley, driving his father Thomas to become Batman and his mother Martha to become The Joker. Also, Barbara Kean has historically had some mental instability in the comics, and the son of her and Jim Gordon has gone on to be a sadistic killer in his own right.
Here is Bruno Heller's response to the theory - and even the possibilty of a female Joker - in full:We talked about theories earlier, and I posted one to the site recently that became pretty popular; the theory is that Barbara could become the Joker of this world.Bruno Heller:
(laughs loudly)Rather than asking you for a flat out yes or no that you can't give me, I’d rather ask you, how open are you to a larger twist like that, where it’s a female version of a major character or a major character that we know from the comics that becomes someone else here?BH:
100% possible. One of the central themes of the DC world is transformation and revelation. Absolutely, those kinds of – I wouldn’t want to call it playing with people’s expectations or gender expectations – but we’ve absolutely considered the possibility of a female Joker, and we haven’t… well I’ll stop myself from saying more because I won’t be able to stop revealing things. (laughs)
No possibility – it is incumbent on us, when we’re telling such a rich, and psychedelic and surreal and infinitely expandable story, it’s both one of the joys of it and one of the scary things about it: you can plausibly go anywhere with this story. So nothing is too strange or too bizarre or too shocking for us to consider. And some of those shocking and surprising things will inevitably end up on screen to either the delight of fans or to their horror. As long as people respond and are engaged, we’ve done our job.

Sony's Playstation Network continues to ramp up the cast of "Powers," announcing today that former "BSG" star Tricia Helfer will join the super-powered cop show show for its second season.
Helfer will bring FBI Special Agent Lange to life on the series. In the comic, by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming, Lange shares a past -- both professional and romantic -- with Detective Walker, played on the series by Sharlto Copley. According to the release announcing Helfer's casting, "Lange walks a fine line between the Powers world and the government, and can be both ally and enemy when it suits her agenda."
Helfer joins fellow "Powers" newcomers Enrico Colantoni and Michael Madsen as the series continues production on its sophomore season.
Helfer, best known as "Battlestar Galactica's" undercover Cylon Number Six, most recently appeared as The Queen on TNT's "Falling Skies" and Viondra Denniger on Syfy's "Ascension" miniseries.
"Powers" returns in 2016 on the Playstation Network.
