STEVE ORLANDO & LUCIANO VECCHIO DREAM UP SOMNUS FOR 'MARVEL'S VOICES: PRIDE' #1
05/10/21 @ 4:21 pm EST

Last week, fans got their first glimpse at a brand-new hero set to debut this June: SOMNUS! Fans eager to learn more about this mysterious character will have to pick up MARVEL’S VOICES: PRIDE #1 where his fascinating backstory will be told by critically acclaimed writer Steve Orlando (Wonder Woman, Curse of the Man-Thing) and, in her Marvel Comics debut, Eisner-nominated artist Claudia Aguirre (Hotel Dare).

A mutant who had an extraordinary impact on an X-Man long ago, Somnus’ powers give him total control of people’s dreams, but he was never able to follow his own. Now, Somnus is given a second chance at life, and he’s determined to make the most out of it on the thriving mutant nation of Krakoa! With a mesmerizing costume design by artist Luciano Vecchio and unique mutant gifts, it’s time for Somnus to step up in a big way and become the hero he was always destined to be.

“Somnus, Carl Valentino, is inspired not only by my own family history, but by my experiences with past generations of LGBTQ+ folks from across the country, people I wouldn't have met without comics,” Orlando explained. “While there is still plenty of work to do, we've also come a long way as a community. Somnus is a chance to explore how my own late queer relatives may have felt, living in more prejudiced times. He's also a chance to celebrate past generations as a whole and acknowledge the strides we've made that they may not have lived to see. And with the Krakoan era being one of relative utopia for mutantkind, Somnus will bring a fresh perspective, and respectful gut check, to the young mutants of the present who may not know just how hard some had to fight for all mutants have achieved. Within the story and without, Somnus will be a new, complex character carrying a message of respect, power, and vision.”

“Marvel’s Voices: Pride is ticking so many dream assignments for me! On top of doing the cover, a frame variant, and a story that I got to write myself, I also got to design a new queer character introduced in a story written by Steve Orlando,” Vecchio said. “I’m so happy to finally collaborate officially with Steve and I fell in love with Somnus’ concept and backstory right away. I got some input from him and editor Sarah Brunstad but also a lot of liberty to propose ideas. This time the design process itself felt almost like channeling. I wanted him to have an air of ‘man of your dreams,’ very charming and human but unreachable at the same time. Some visual elements are a mix of Mod fashion, a bit of Hellfire Gala influence, and a palette based on Etruscan vase art as a nod to the god he’s named after.”

Somnus will also be the star of Luciano Vecchio’s celebratory MARVEL’S VOICES: PRIDE #1 Frame Variant cover! An homage to the iconic Marvel 25th Anniversary covers released in 1985, Somnus takes the spotlight surrounded by some of Marvel’s brightest LGBTQ+ heroes. Check out the fully revealed cover below and don’t miss this uplifting Marvel story when Somnus makes his first appearance in MARVEL’S VOICES: PRIDE #1 on June 23rd!

ClaeiceNegotiations between CBSViacom and MGM Television have completely stalled, putting the chances of Clarice, the Silence of the Lambs sequel’s future in serious doubt. And Deadline is reporting that there is no viale way for the show to return to CBS as the network has already committed to a full slate for the fall, leaving Paramount+ as it’s only real option. Word had surfaced about a month ago that Clarice and SEAL Team Six would both move from CBS to Paramount+, and while the deal for SEAL as well as Evil have been made, the negotiations for Clarice are stalled and likely will mean that a show that once had a second season pickup will now be laying off 300 people.

Source: Deadline | Categories: MIsc | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment




Freya Allan, a breakout in the Netflix series The Witcher, is set to star in Baghead for Studiocanal and The Picture Company, Deadline reports. Production will begin in the fall in Berlin. Allan stars in the upcoming Studiocanal/The Picture Company action thriller Gunpowder Milkshake for Netflix.

The film will be directed by Alberto Corredor, who directed the short film that was acquired to be turned into a feature length horror film. Christina Pamies and Bryce McGuire wrote the script. Studiocanal will commence worldwide sales at the Cannes Market.

Baghead revolves around a mysterious figure called Baghead, a diminutive wrinkled up person who is able to manifest the dead and bring them back to our world for short intervals. People seek out the mysterious medium to reconnect with lost loved ones. Once in contact with Baghead, however, the title character’s true powers and intentions are revealed and there is a high price to pay for its contact with the deceased.

The feature transfer will build on that storyline and take a Saw-like approach, adding in supernatural elements. Allan will play the film’s lead, who must contend with the evil entity which has deep connections to her family’s past.
'PETER RABBIT 2: THE RUNAWAY' STEALS $900K ON THURSDAY

Peter Rabbit 2

Sony is reporting the Thursday night previews to Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway which began at 4 p.m. yesterday at 2,572 theaters, and the long-awaited Will Gluck directed sequel grossed $900K. The first Peter Rabbit in February 2018 didn’t hold any previews.

Sony earlier in the week was expecting $8M-$10M, but the sequel could very well do in the teens at 3,300. As far as Thursday night comps to Peter Rabbit 2, it’s an apples-to-oranges comparison due to pre-pandemic numbers, however, both Sony’s Emoji Movie and Fox/DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls posted $900K Thursday nights, and respectively went on to $24.5M and $46.5M opening weekends. Peter Rabbit 2 has a 70% fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes.

The first installment of Peter Rabbit opened to $25M domestic and went on to make $115.2M domestic, $351.2M WW. While Sony has sold off some of its movies to Netflix (licensed out global rights, if you will), the Culver City lot kept Peter Rabbit 2, as they knew they could make some dough off of this one. Already, the sequel has banked over $46M offshore, after a staggered launch out of Australia at end of March (before Victoria closed down), and heads into China this weekend. (via Deadline)

Adi Shankar is the creator and executive producer with Juguet, Revon, and Guillemot once again producing. Bobbypills is the production studio.

Also ordered was a Far Cry adult anime series based on the first-person shooter game franchise of the same name, with each game revolving around the main character working against a fearsome dictator that controls a particular island or isolated region. The first game was released in 2004 and has sold more than 60 million units to date. Far Cry 6, featuring Giancarlo Esposito as the main antagonist, is due to be released in October.

DC CONTINUING BILL WILLINGHAM’S HIT WITH 'FABLES' #151, 'BATMAN VS. BIGBY!'
06/11/21 @ 8:54 am EST
Source: DC Comics | Categories: DC | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


Once upon a time, fans met the characters of Fabletown, the hidden city populated by legendary heroes and villains of fairy tales and folklore. Now, in celebration of its upcoming 20th anniversary, the bestselling series Fables is picking up where it left off—and expanding into the DC Universe.

First, on sale in September, Batman vs. Bigby! A Wolf in Gotham sees Fables’s infamous sleuth Bigby Wolf go head-to-head with the world’s greatest detective, Batman, in this six-issue spinoff miniseries from DC Black Label. Written by Bill Willingham with pencils by Brian Level, inks by Jay Leisten, and colors by Lee Loughridge, this crossover detective story will delight fans of both Batman and Fables—or fans who just love a good noir mystery.



“I’ve wanted to do this since the very first year of Fables,” says writer Bill Willingham. “Why? Because Batman is a detective, and Bigby is a detective, and I love a well-crafted story crossing over characters from two different fictional worlds. It’s automatically a fish-out-of-water story for at least one of the main characters, and that sort of story always works. Plus, I knew from the very beginning of Fables that my fictional universe would allow for many ways to get Bigby Wolf into the DCU and Gotham City. Even though those cosmic story structures wouldn’t be introduced in the Fables books for a year or more, they were baked in from the very beginning.”

Then, on sale the first week of May 2022, the main story line continues with Fables #151—just in time for the 20th anniversary of Fables #1. Fables #151 is the first installment of “The Black Forest,” a 12-issue arc that picks up where the story left off in Fables #150, and is also a perfect jumping-on point for new readers. The series also reunites the core creative team, with pencils by Mark Buckingham, inks by Steve Leialoha, colors by Lee Loughridge, and letters by Todd Klein.



“We introduce a great new character and catch up with many of our most beloved characters from the previous issues,” says writer and creator Bill Willingham. “Mark Buckingham has agreed to draw all twelve issues of this tale and I believe he’s doing the best work of his career. Yes, I know I’ve said that several times before, but can I help it if he keeps getting better and better?”

Bill Willingham’s return to DC will also include Cursemas, a 48-page standalone holiday special featuring the Justice League.
