New Us sci-fi, fantasy and horror shows for 2016

15 July 2015 3:19 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From comic-book adaptations to sci-fi, fantasy and horror. Here are the new geek-skewed shows coming to Us TV in 2016...

So there’s a lot of comic-book adaptations coming up in 2016 from Marvel, DC and others, but genre TV is represented across the board with science-fiction, fantasy and horror represented at pretty much every network and cable channel in the Us.

Here's some of the geek TV that will be making its way to us from the Us next year.

Aka Jessica Jones (Netflix)

Part of Netflix’s own connected slice of the McU, there has been a lot of confusion over when we »

American Gods: Dwayne Johnson "would have been perfect" for Shadow says Neil Gaiman

6 July 2015 6:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

"If he hadn't become huge" Dwayne Johnson "would have been perfect" as American Gods' Shadow, says Neil Gaiman...

Fantasy casting comes just above 'Writing Statham Fan-Fic' and just below 'Dunking Biscuits In Tea' in the official Den Of Geek list of top ways to spend an afternoon (copies available from all good fictional book shops), so it's cheering to hear that our favourite authors engage in just that hobby.

Speaking at the Edinburgh Book Festival, Neil Gaiman has revealed that his dream casting for the role of American Gods protagonist, Shadow, is Mr Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson.

As reported by The Guardian, Gaiman told the festival crowd, "Shadow is of mixed race and I wanted to find an actor who has that thing going. An actor who turned up after American Gods was written and, if he hadn't have become huge would have been perfect, was Dwayne 'the Rock' Johnson »

12 June 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In 2012, one adorable, albeit incredibly foulmouthed, teddy bear took the world by storm. With his classic, furry good looks, unparalleled swagger and penchant for pot-fueled humor and sexually charged antics, an unlikely leading man catapulted Universal Pictures and Media Rights Capital’s small comedy about a stoner dude and his best friend to its status as the highest-grossing original “R”-rated comedy of all time.

This summer, Seth MacFarlane returns as writer, director and voice star of Ted 2, the follow-up to the blockbuster that launched the career of the world’s most outrageous bear. Joined once again by Mark Wahlberg as John Bennett, the thunder buddies for life are entering into uncharted territory.

It’s time to legalize Ted.

Also starring Amanda Seyfried, Giovanni Ribisi, John Slattery, Jessica Barth and Morgan FreemanTed 2 opens in theaters on June 26.

The ladies of Litchfield Penitentiary are finally back!  "Orange Is The New Black" returned for season three on Netflix last night -- and man, have we missed Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) and her fellow inmates.  This season will have no shortage of fights, crazy antics and even romance with Alex Vause (Laura Prepon) making her return to Litchfield.   Also heading to the correctional facility is some fresh meat!   Actress and TV personality Ruby Rose joins the ladies as Stella Carlin, an Australian inmate who gets locked up and caught in a love triangle with Piper and Alex. Things also continue to get steamy between Dayanara Diaz (Dascha Polanco) and officer John Bennett (Matt McGorry). Fan favorites Laverne Cox and Uzo Aduba also reprise their roles as Sophia Burset and Crazy Eyes, but sadly one main character will be noticeably absent this season.   Jason Biggs, who plays Piper's fiance Larry Bloom, »

Orange Is the New Black Season Three Will Be Lighter, Focused on Faith and Motherhood

22 May 2015 12:52 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

At a panel discussion for Orange Is the New Black at the Directors Guild West in Los Angeles Wednesday night, the cast and creator, Jenji Kohan, were tight-lipped about details on the upcoming season, but Kohan volunteered a couple tidbits: season three will focus on faith and motherhood. Motherhood likely refers to Daya (Dashcha Polenco), as she’s pregnant, and we know she’ll be giving birth behind bars to her and prison guard John Bennett’s baby. As for faith, will new assistant warden Joe Caputo continue to enlist Sister Jane’s help in his struggle to get things under control at Litchfield? Kohan also said the next season will be lighter in tone, noting with a laugh, “we went to Oz” in season two, referencing the darkest of all prison shows, HBO’s gritty, violent drama. Less shivs, more comedy, we’re on board for that. Season three »

Arrow Deserves More Praise For Its Geektastic Guest Star List

17 May 2015 7:40 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Ever since The CW's Arrow first premiered back in October 2012, the show has been dealing out weekly superhero fisticuffs like no one's business.  It's a superhero show that's laid the groundwork for The Flash and the upcoming CBS superhero show, Supergirl.  While there are a lot of things Arrow does right, one aspect of the show that does not receive enough praise is its penchant for having guest stars from other fan-favorite, sci-fi and geek TV shows.  To date, we've had Spartacus' Crixus (Manu Bennett), X2's Lady Deathstrike (Kelly Hu), Street Fighter's Ryu (Byron Mann) and Firefly's River Tam (Summer Glau) to name but a few.   As the wait for Arrow season 4 begins, we're going to shine the spotlight on all the geektastic guest stars the showrunners manage to cram into Arrow each season.  Lets start where it all began, with Arrow season 1.

The Thunder Buddies Are Up To No Good In New Trailer For Ted 2

27 April 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Universal has unveiled the latest trailer for Seth MacFarlane’s comedy sequel, Ted 2, and it retains all of the tenets of the director’s outrageous, on-the-nose style of humor: dick jokes, race and more sexual innuendos than you can shake your furry first at.

Centering around the titular, pint-sized loudmouth, the follow-up will orbit around Ted’s quest to land some reputable civil rights, although such a feat will require the crude protagonist to make a valuable contribution to society itself. How will he achieve this, you ask? Well, despite his fuzzy anatomy, Ted reveals his burning desire to have a baby with his bride-to-be Tami-Lynn (Jessica Barth reprising her role as the dim-witted love interest), though to do this he will need to collect a sperm sample.

And so, alongside partner-in-crime John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg), the dynamic duo set out to make Ted’s dream a reality, encountering »
