Sleepy Hollow‘s biggest strength as a show is taking risks, and it takes some pretty big ones in this episode which change the outlook of the show from here on out. “The Midnight Ride” has a fast moving plot that weaves in elements from both the past and present to create a compelling clash between Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) and the Horseman of Death (Richard Cetrone). At times, the characters feel like ciphers in the workings of the story, but Heather Regnier injects plenty of humor into Ichabod’s dialogue and starts to make Sleepy Hollow policemen Frank Irving (Orlando Jones) and Luke Morales (Nicholas Gonzalez) more three dimensional presences on the show. This character growth and the chemistry between Ichabod and Abbie (Nicole Beharie »

Washington Irving's original story has been around for centuries but that's no guarantee that Fox's Sleepy Hollow TV show will even last a year if the ratings aren't good enough. Will it be cancelled or renewed for a second season? Time will tell.
Sleepy Hollow revolves around a transplant from 1790 and a modern sheriff who try to stop the Headless Horseman and other supernatural threats. The cast includes Tom Mison, Nicole Beharie, Orlando Jones, Katia Winter, Clancy Brown, John Cho, and Richard Cetrone.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- typically the following morning, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.

After just three episodes, Fox has renewed Sleepy Hollow for a second season. The show gave Fox their highest-rated premiere since 24 and, despite steep competition, has held up well.
Starring Tom Mison and Nicole Beharie, Sleepy Hollow revolves around a patriot from colonial times and a female sheriff who work together to stop evil forces, including the Headless Horseman. Others in the cast include Orlando Jones, Katia Winter, John Cho, and Richard Cetrone.
In a statement, Fox chairman of entertainment Kevin Reilly said, "Sleepy Hollow has proven to be a risk well worth taking -- it’s a conceptual blast unlike anything else on television and it all holds together with inventive writing and a fantastic cast... I can’t wait for fans to experience what else is in store for this fall and even more of this wild ride into season two.” »

This post potentially features major spoilers from Man of Steel, so if you don't want to take the risk you should probably turn away now...
We already know that Henry Cavill's Superman is going to have his hands full when he goes up against General Zod (Michael Shannon) and Faora (Antje Traue) in this summer's Man of Steel, while there's been talk that fellow Kryptonian bad guys Tor-An (Richard Cetrone) and Dev-Em (Revard Dufresne) could also be set to make an appearance. However, one iconic Superman villain who its been assumed would be absent from the Zack Snyder-directed reboot is that of Kal-El's ultimate nemesis Lex Luthor. Well, it seems that might not be the case after all...
Earlier this week screenwriter David S. Goyer teased the possibility an appearance from Luthor when he stated that "I don't think anyone has ever confirmed that we haven't included him. »

First up are details that the MPAA have announced the superhero origin adventure has received a PG-13 rating “for intense sequences of sci-fi violence, action and destruction, and for some language”. That suggests we in the UK will see the film given a 12A certificate.
We then have news that the beloved cult character of Jimmy Olsen is to be given a gender makeover. Olsen appeared in the DC comics as The Daily Planet photographer and sidekick to Clark Kent, who featured in all the previous big-screen efforts (portrayed by Marc McClure in the Christopher Reeve blockbusters and Sam Huntington in Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns). It is now understood the character will now be named Jenny Olsen and will be played by rising young actress Rebecca Buller.

The rating was granted for "intense sequences of sci-fi violence, action and destruction, and for some language."
Next up comes some casting talk. Lego versions of characters from the film have emerged at the London Toy Fair, one of which is the previously unannounced Kryptonian sleeper agent villain Tor-An.
Meanwhile one bit of talk that has already generated much discussion in the last few days is that a gender swap. Seems that actress Rebecca Buller ("The Playboy Club") has the role of Jenny Olsen, and the character is essentially serving as a replacement for long-time Daily Planet errand boy Jimmy Olsen.

The MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) has just released the latest batch of movie ratings and Zack Snyder‘s Man Of Steel is getting a PG-13 rating. It’s not much of a surprise really, most mainstream superhero movies get the PG-13 rating, each of Christopher Nolan‘s Batman movies, The Avengers, all got a PG-13 for mild violence and adult content.
The MPAA posted their reasoning for the rating:
There had better be some Intense sci-fi violence in this movie, and some epic battle. Superman Returns suffered a lot because there wasn’t enough fighting (that and the actor was completely unsuitable) – there was action, but without some actual fighting where we can see all those super-buffed, overpowering feats of his Kryptonian genetics – well, even I must say that Superman would be A Bit boring.
The next Man of Steel news is another one of those infamous Lego Set spoilers. »

Marvel story in the evening. DC story in the morning. Such is the life of a fanboy journo. Not that I am complaining.
So Man Of Steel officially got a rating.
Rated PG-13 For intense sequences of sci-fi violence, action and destruction, and for some language. Meh. No big deal. Like duh, what were you expecting? A hard R? So “rumor” has it that General Zod got two wingmen in the movie. The site ComicBook.com is reporting that Phantom Zone villains Tor-An and Dev-Em will make appearances. Who?! In the comic books Tor-An was a member of the military guild who had served under General Zod, and Dev-Em was a criminal who became one of Zod’s followers. Tor-An will be played by Richard Cetrone. Dev-Em will be played Revard Dufresne. Both Richard Cetrone and Revard Dufresne previously worked with Zack Snyder on Sucker Punch. What gives this rumor »

Yesterday, a Man of Steel lego set included a figure by the name of Tor-An. At that point the internet jumped to the conclusion that the character, which in the comics is a Kryptonian villain, would be in the film. Now, this wasn't a surprise to me as I already revealed months ago that Tor-An would be in the film. The character was listed on the leaked call sheet that I posted, which Warner Bros. later had us yank. So, the only mystery left is, who is playing Tor-An? I'll defer to Comicbook.com on this matter, as they have a scoop about the actor playing Tor-An, and reveal another Kryptonian villain and the actor playing that role too. "In fact, according to the source, Tor-An will be played by Richard Cetrone. In addition, to Tor-An, another Phantom Zone villain named Dev-Em will appear in the movie. Dev-Em will be »
