THE MAD TITAN’S QUEST CONTINUES IN THANOS: THE INFINITY RELATIVITY OGN11/20/14 @ 11:58 am EST
Sure, he’s got his own comic series. Sure, he’s one of the world’s most popular super heroes. But you know what he’s not? Fine literature.
Well, let’s fix that!
That’s right: In 2015, the Merc With a Mouth is conquering the world of prose fiction with DEADPOOL: PAWS
, an all-new original story penned by novelist and comic-book writer Stefan Petrucha (Teen, Inc., X-Files).
Something is turning the city’s dogs into giant, bloodthirsty killing machines. And Deadpool is charged with taking care of business. Only thing is – Deadpool likes
dogs. He doesn’t want to kill them. Now, people – that’s a different story. He can kill loads of people. At least the ones who deserve it. So what we’ve got here is a genuine character dilemma.
“Deadpool is such a fun character that transcends the comics themselves,” says Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel. “When we were discussing which characters should get the prose treatment, Wade Wilson was always right near the top. From the first chapter, the book has everything you love about Deadpool, and I can’t wait for fans to get their hands on it.”
In 2015, be there when the Merc With a Mouth conquers the brave new world of prose. DEADPOOL: PAWS
brings you a disturbing tale of mutated canines…and the regenerating, loudmouthed mercenaries who love them.

'GOTHAM': NO HARLEY QUINN THIS SEASON, BUT EXPECT 'PRENATAL ROBIN'11/19/14 @ 10:46 pm EST
Chris Claremont posted on Facebook about his battles with international flights, whereupon he was asked, and replied,
Write a post about what are our thoughts on the newest Nightcrawler!! I liked it!! Lol. (Claremont easter eggs!!)
Danny – very glad you liked it. I guess my basic thought is that it’s a pity there won’t be a Nightcrawler Year 2.
February has a Nightcrawler #11 solicited,
CHRIS CLAREMONT (w)
TODD NAUCK (a/C)
• The Shadow King. The Crimson Pirates. The forces of Heaven and Hell. Nightcrawler is cutting through his foes to protect those nearest and dearest to him.
• But in his struggles with his return from the afterlife, will Nightcrawler take his one-man-war too far?
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99
Previously we had been informed that Nightcrawler would be going up to at least issue 12.
Maybe it won’t go any further?
We were told to expect a number of cancellations in March, and we already lost Elektra in February. (via Bleeding Cool)

EPOCHALYPSE FROM JONATHAN HENNESSEY & SHANE DAVIS DEBUTS THIS WEEK11/19/14 @ 10:35 pm EST
Gotham iconic character update: Showrunner Bruno Heller reveals that fans can expect a “prenatal Robin” on the Fox drama series, while rumors of Harley Quinn making an appearance this season are unfounded.
“We’re going to do a prenatal origin story for Robin down the line,” Heller tells EW.
Since Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) is still a young teenager on the series, his youthful eventual partner Robin hasn’t even been born yet. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a way to tell a story that touches on his character.
“There are no MRIs involved,” Heller assures. “There’s an episode coming up where we learn how Robin’s parents got together.”
Monday’s episode introduced assistant district attorney Harvey Dent/Two Face (Nicholas D’Agosto), whose upbeat cheerfulness hides an undercurrent of rage. And still to come this season is a young version of Scarecrow.
“This is not a kid being a loony Scarecrow; this is a couple episodes about how that character has evolved—everyone’s character is formed in their childhood to some degree or another,” Heller says. “His father is involved, as is part of the [character's] mythology.”

It appears that director Bryan Singer will include Jean Grey, Cyclops, and Storm in X-Men: Apocalypse, which will conclude the trilogy featuring the young mutants featured in X-Men: First Class. The decision to include the trio of founding X-Men members means that they will have be recast given the action in Apocalypse takes place 20 years before the first of Singer’s X-Men films, which was made in 2000 and starred Famke Janssen as Jean Grey and James Marsden as Cyclops.IT’S OFFICIAL—THE BLUE ALIEN ON ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ IS A KREE11/19/14 @ 10:24 pm EST
The usually reliable Hollywood-insider site The Wrap cites multiple sources for a report that Elle Fanning and Chloe Moretz have already met with Singer about playing Jean Grey, and Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit, Begin Again) is also under consideration. Official test offers have not yet been made and other actresses may be in consideration, though it appears that Singer wants an established young actress for the role of Jean Grey.
According to The Wrap, Singer is more open to finding a “fresh face” for the role of Cyclops with Ben Hardy, who plays Peter Beale on the long-running UK soaper EastEnders, Charlie Rowe, who is currently starring in the Fox TV series Red Band Society, and Timothee Chalamet, who plays Matthew McConaughey’s son in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, all reportedly in the running to play Cyclops according to The Wrap.
X-Men Apocalypse, which is slated to debut on May 27th, 2016, is expected to focus largely on the relationship between Mystique played by Jennifer Lawrence and Magneto, who will be played by Michael Fassbender.

Bell also told TV Guide that a big reveal concerning one-name heroines Skye (Chloe Bennet) and Raina (Ruth Negga) will be coming on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Will the two brunettes turn out to be aliens as well? The Kree who have been an obsession of Hydra since the 1940s will also reportedly provide another link from the S.H.I.E.L.D.

Alexandra DaddarioCHRIS HEMSWORTH A MARVEL AS PEOPLE'S 'SEXIEST MAN ALIVE'11/19/14 @ 9:58 pm EST
This has turned out to be a big day for casting news concerning comic book-based movies and TV series.
The latest news to drop is a report that four actresses are currently in the running to play the title role in the Marvel Comics-based Netflix series Jessica Jones. With the Netflix Daredevil series already in production, the casting of the Jessica Jones series can’t be far behind, and since Luke Cage will appear in 6-7 episodes of Jessica Jones, Melissa Rosenberg and the other producers at Netflix have to make a decision there as well.
Luke Cage will eventually get his own Netflix series, and after the completion of the four “individual” series (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, & Luke Cage), the four heroes will combine in a final Netflix series that will complete “phase one” of the Marvel/Netflix experiment. Teresa Palmer
Deadline is reporting that Alexandra Daddario, Krysten Ritter, Teresa Palmer, and Jessica De Grouw are all under consideration for the 13-episode Jessica Jones series about a superhero with post-traumatic stress disorder, who hangs up the spandex and opens a detective agency where her clients include other superheroes. Mike Colter
As for Luke Cage, the top two contenders for the role according to Deadline are Lance Gross (Crisis) and Mike Colter (The Good Wife, The Following).

Move over, Adam Levine.
"Thor" star Chris Hemsworth is People magazine's 2014 "Sexiest Man Alive."
The 31-year-old Aussie, Hollywood's version of a god among men, was unveiled Wednesday on "Jimmy Kimme;l Live!"
"It's the nuclear launch code of magazine covers," Kimmel joked. "It has two criteria. One: You must be sexy. Two: You must be alive."
Hemsworth has been a hunky hit ever since he landed the hammer-swinging role of "Thor" in the Marvel Comics film adaptation in 2011. He's reprised the character through three more films, including "Avengers: Age of Ultron" due out next year. He has three children with 38-year-old Spanish model, Elsa Pataky. The couple married in 2010.
"I think you've bought me a couple of weeks of bragging rights around the house," Hemsworth told People. "I can just say to her, 'Now remember, this is what the people think, so I don't need to do the dishes anymore ..."
