COULSON QUESTIONS DAISY ABOUT WARD'S WHEREABOUTS IN NEW CLIP12/01/15 @ 11:24 am EST
My Comics has some good things to say about the debut of The Shadow:
“When you hear the word “pulp” what is the first thing that comes to mind? Maybe it’s the movie that made the word famous again, “Pulp Fiction”. You might think of something to do with trees or even orange juice. Well, you should be thinking about Dynamite Entertainment’s The Shadow
“This character debuted around 1930 first in serialized pulp magazines and then in radio programs. A lot of people don’t realize that this is one of the most famous pulp characters of the 20th century. Besides print and radio, The Shadow has spawned 5 movies in total with the most recent being released in 1994 starring Alec Baldwin
. The comic property has been passed down over the years with DC Comics
doing a couple of runs in the late 70′s to 80′s and then Dark Horse
buying out the rights to do their own series in the mid 90′s. Fast forward to 2011 and Dynamite Entertainment announced that they had in fact licensed The Shadow from Conde Nast. As most of you know Dynamite has done a superb job bringing a lot of these pulp properties back to life in new and interesting ways. The Shadow #1 written by Garth Ennis
and drawn by Aaron Campbell
is a fine example of an older property made new again.
“The story takes place in New York City sometime in the 1940′s. Our hero, clad in a black trench coat, red scarf, and fedora is going to make a stand against evil. In this case the evil is Nazi sympathizing Japanese Soldiers who are looking to board a ship against the will of the people who are on it. We don’t know exactly what is on it, but we know that The Shadow makes quick work of a number of Japanese soldiers very quickly with his dueling pistols. The action is fast paced and the Shadow is quick to let his guns do the talking. Garth Ennis does a great job sticking with the times in terms of dialogue. The heroic phrases used by the Shadow, brings us back to a more simple time in comics when the division between good guys and bad guys was more black and white than today’s shades of gray.
“What would come off as a bit campy in a modern day setting works very well in this particular setting of the 1940′s where…”

"GOTHAM" TEASES MISTER FREEZE'S ARRIVAL IN SEASON 2 PROMO12/01/15 @ 11:00 am EST
Despite facing the highest-rated “Sunday Night Football” game of the fall, AMC’s “The Walking Dead” capped the first half of its fifth season with more huge numbers and a nice uptick in same-day ratings — but down from last year.
AMC will release “live plus-3” ratings later this week, but “The Walking Dead” on Sunday averaged a 7.0 rating in adults 18-49 and about 14 million viewers overall, according to Nielsen. This was up about 6% week to week for the show’s best numbers since its season premiere on Oct. 11 (7.4 rating in 18-49, 14.63 million viewers overall).
“Walking Dead” remains the top-rated entertainment series of the fall in key demos despite its modest declines. And by way of comparison, Sunday’s 7.0 rating tops every episode of Fox’s “Empire” to date, with the soap peaking with a 6.9 for its first-season finale last March.
Its first eight episodes of season 5 averaged a 6.7 rating in adults 18-49 13.22 million viewers overall — down 8% in both the demo and total viewers vs. last year. Sunday’s finale was up 15% in the demo from its fall conclusion of two years ago (6.1).
Following “The Walking Dead,” the third episode of “Into the Badlands” averaged a 2.6 rating in adults 18-49 and 5.2 million viewers overall. It was Sunday’s No. 2 entertainment series in the demo, rising 8% from last week.

TURN YOUR ATTENTION TOWARDS THE PINK DROID: R2-KT TO APPEAR IN STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS12/01/15 @ 10:38 am EST
After lengthy negotiations, Fox has closed a development deal for Ramb
o: New Blood,
a TV series based on the hit feature franchise, with Sylvester Stallone executive producing. There is conflicting information whether Stallone has a deal in place to act in the project — about Rambo and his son — but Deadline's sources indicate that he is expected to reprise his role as the famous renegade soldier, which he has played in all four Rambo
movies to date.
Written by feature writer Jeb Stuart (Die Hard, The Fugitive
), the Rambo
TV series, from Entertainment One and Avi Lerner’s Millennium Films,
pays homage to the films, exploring the complex relationship between Rambo and his son, J.R., an ex-Navy SEAL. J.R. is a new character not been featured in the movies that has been added as a way into the series. As the logline suggests, Rambo would be a key character on the show unlike other TV series followups, like the proposed Beverly Hills Cop
series for CBS, which centered on the son of Eddie Murphy’s Axel Foley, with Murphy only slated to make occasional appearances.
Nu Image/Millenium Films, which has the rights to Rambo,
and eOne originally teamed to develop a Rambo
TV series in 2013 with the goal to shop it to broadcasters in the U.S. and internationally.
Based on the David Morrell novel First Blood
, the Rambo films center on a troubled Vietnam War veteran and former Green Beret (Stallone) who is skilled in many aspects of survival, weaponry, hand-to-hand combat and guerrilla warfare. The franchise consists of the films First Blood, Rambo: First Blood Part II, Rambo III
. Lerner and Stallone worked together on the 2008 Rambo
feature and had planned a fifth installment, Rambo: Last Blood
, which had been put on hold. The duo’s other action feature collaboration, the Expendables
franchise, also is getting a TV adaptation at Fox with them executive producing. The Expendables
event series, now in development, has NCIS: LA
‘s Shane Brennan serving as showrunner.

ARROW’S GREG BERLANTI TEASES BIG EMOTIONAL STORY SPINNING OUT OF FLASH/ARROW CROSSOVER12/01/15 @ 10:27 am EST
In 2004 Katie Johnson
was diagnosed with a life-threatening brain tumor. Her father,Albin Johnson
, decided to create a droid in honor of his daughter, and named it R2-KT. Being the founder of the 501st Legion, which is an organization of enthusiasts dedicated to making Star Wars
costumes, helped with the process as he realized the droid wouldn’t be finished before her death.
Many of the people that contribute to the Star Wars
films have generous kind hearts and do nice things for fans. This was true for R2 droid builder Andy Schwartz
, who painted his own R2-KT and sent it over to the family.
The female droid has appeared in the David Filoni
-directed animated series The Clone Wars
as QT-KT, a droid owned by Jedi Master Aayla Secura (a character who appears in the prequel films). R2-KT is also expected to make an appearance in the upcoming J.J. Abrams-
directedStar Wars: The Force Awakens.
What a wonderful way to honor Katie Johnson. (Via Bleeding Cool)

THE DOCTOR GETS A NEW SONIC SCREWDRIVER FOR CHRISTMAS DAY – ‘THE HUSBANDS OF RIVER SONG’12/01/15 @ 10:24 am EST
Talking with Entertainment Weeklyabout this week’s crossover betweenThe Flash
, executive producer Greg Berlanti
says “the biggest emotional story we’ve ever done on Arrow
” will spin out of events from the Wednesday night episode.
The story will test the relationship between Oliver and Felicity. “Like any relationship, there’s going to be ups and downs and surprises and pitfalls, and they have some real challenges going into the [winter] break,” says Berlanti. “But that’s probably all I should say without getting in trouble with my cohorts!”
The producer also described the crossover — which sees the extended casts of both series unite to fight the immortal Vandal Savage — as a “two-hour film” instead of the more episodic nature of last year’s crossover. “Because Flash
was in its first year last year, we tried with each to make it still feel like a Flash
episode and still feel like an Arrow
episode,” he said. “This year, we wanted to really blend them.”

In the first Avengers
movie, there was one phrase that echoed around the world. Loki’s insult to the Black Widow a misogynist slur intended by him to reduce her to a pathetic representation of her gender, by was of an archaic English term, “mewling quim”. It was also a moment that was instantly reversed with the revelation that the Black Widow was playing Loki, using his venality against him to reveal his plan.
And, yes, once everyone got out of the cinema they started googling it.
Well it’s been a while since we’ve had such a reductive archaic misogynist insult used in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But we get one in the final episode of Jessica Jones
, the new Netflix show from Marvel.
And this time it’s from David Tennant
, as Kilgrave, the Purple Man, spitting it over the phone at Jessica.“You really are a little anal crumpet, aren’t you?”
Google, get ready!
