If you are a super sci-fi geek, loved Battlestar Gallatica or Star Trek: Deep Space 9, then you may have worshiped a "one year show" before it was cancelled called Firefly. I can say that I actually did not like the first two shows mentioned (please don't ignore everything I say going forth due to the Battlestar comment), but I was obsessed over Firefly. The show had great actors; Alan Tudyk was wonderful (check him out in Powerless), and the story was stellar. I was elated when Serenity was made for the big screen, but I was left wondering if the franchise would ever have a future.
As it turns out, according to Fox, there just may be a chance.

These actors all signed onto network TV projects before pilot pickups — and now, their pilots have in fact all been given the green light.
This development season saw a growing trend of casting stars well before pilot season began, giving the potential series a leg up against the hefty competition.
While certain projects have always been developed specifically for a star, the bulk of TV shows are typically put into development without talent, then greenlit to pilot and then casting begins. But for the 2017-2018 season, studios were strategic in attaching more actors than ever before to projects in the midst of the development cycle.
Now at the halfway point of pilot season, some of the first pilots to be picked up were McEntire’s ABC series with Marc Cherry, Feuerstein’s CBS comedy “9J, 9K »

Deadpool has become a surprise awards contender, landing a Producers Guild of America nomination and now has the possibility of receiving an Oscar nomination for Best Picture. In the wake of all this fun and chaos, Ryan Reynolds sat down with The Hollywood Reporter for their Awards Chatter podcast, detailing just how far back production goes on this rousing success story:
“The weird plot twist was, somehow, some way, Deadpool got reinvigorated at Fox while [Green Lantern] was happening. … What a lot of people don’t know is [writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick] flew to New Orleans and, while I was shooting Green Lantern, we were actually all together writing Deadpool.”
Oscar nominations are set to be announced this Thursday. Let us know if you hope Deadpool nabs some nominations, including one for the prestigious Best Picture award.

Last year's blockbuster Deadpool always had the odds stacked against it, whether it was the decade or so the project spent in development before getting the green light, or the simple fact that it would likely be a modest hit, at best, with a February release and an R-rating. The Merc With the Mouth would go on to break box office records left and right, en route to becoming the highest-grossing R-rated movie of all time at the worldwide box office, and now, months after its release, the foul-mouthed superhero is starting to surprise fans once again. There is talk that it may actually pick up a few Oscar nominations when they're announced exactly one week from today, and if that happens, Ryan Reynolds will have a special surprise for fans.
Following its holiday hiatus, Gotham returned to the airwaves in style yesterday evening thanks to the midseason premiere of “Mad City: Ghosts.”
In many ways, the episode laid the groundwork for the remainder of season 3, as Mayor Oswald Cobblepot’s reign begins to falter under pressure from Ed Nygma. But without question, it was the long-anticipated return of Jerome Valeska that stole the headlines. Resurrecting the show’s proto-Joker has been long on the cards, but it appears as though Gotham‘s creative team are also leaving the door open for a Harley Quinn cameo appearance further down the line – likely during the season 3 finale.
During an interview with TV Guide, producer John Stephens teased that “we might see [Quinn] in Episode 22,” which will seemingly tee up season 4’s narrative arc. All of this is yet to be confirmed, so don’t go banking on a Harley Quinn cameo in Gotham season 3 just yet. »

Outside of technical categories, for example The Avengers getting nominated for Best Visual Effects, no Marvel film has been nominated for a legitimate category at the Oscars and of course no Marvel movie has ever won. Actually, the most notable win comes from a DC movie, and that would be Heath Ledger's »

Deadpool massively exceeded expectations when it was released last year, becoming the highest-grossing R-rated film ever. With the flick proving to be a worthy take on the Merc with a Mouth, anticipation for the sequel is, understandably, very high.
We know that the follow-up won’t be getting ridiculously bigger in terms of the budget, but you have to believe Fox won’t be cutting the purse strings like they did with the first instalment. The studio hasn’t told us much about what they have planned just yet, but the likes of Cable and Domino have already been confirmed as being on the way. However, along with those new additions will also be some familiar faces.

One of the most interesting developments during the recent part of the precursor season is the surprising strength that Deadpool has shown. From the Golden Globes to the Writers Guild to yesterday the Producers Guild, this odd little blockbuster has popped up in a number of places. Not only has it given rise to plenty of folks speculating about its Oscar chances, some are even making the case that a Best Picture nomination could be coming its way. That’s silly, but it does seem likely that the Academy could nominate the film somewhere. Just a few months ago, that would have been inconceivable. Deadpool is certainly one of the little movies that could this time around. A quick summary, for those still in the dark about it. The flick is perhaps the most meta comic book tale we’ve ever seen. Sure, this is also an origin story about »

We still don't have a release date for Deadpool 2, but we know it is gearing up for production in the near future. At the moment, given what happened at the end of the first Deadpool, it looks like Wade Wilson will be carrying on happily with his girlfriend Vanessa (played by Morena Baccarin). But that could change in a big way. In the "Deadpool might eventually get a boyfriend" kind of way.
Ryan Reynolds recently did a fairly lengthy and in-depth interview with Variety, and the subject of where Deadpool is going in the future came up. In the comics, Wade Wilson is rather flirtatious and goes both ways, as it were, having the distinction of being Marvel's first pansexual hero. As far as having Wade Wilson wind up with a guy on-screen, Ryan Reynolds is very open to the idea. Here is what he had to say about it. »
When we last saw Deadpool in the 20th Century Fox tentpole last spring, he was happily in love with his girlfriend Vanessa (played by Morena Baccarin). But as Marvel’s first pansexual superhero, known to flirt with both men and women, star Ryan Reynolds isn’t counting out a boyfriend for his spandex-wearing superhero in future “Deadpool” installments.
“What love is to Deadpool may not be what love is to Batman or someone else,” Reynolds tells Variety in this week’s cover story. “I think that could be played up more. He’s an outsider in every way, shape, and form.”
Hollywood has been nervous about introducing same-sex couplings in superhero movies, out of fear that major tentpoles could alienate audiences in countries less tolerant of gay rights. “That’s not really a problem for us, because we were banned in China,” Reynolds notes. »
