Adrianne Palicki joins Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. as Mockingbird

14 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

THR is reporting that Friday Night Lights actress Adrianne Palicki has joined the second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as fan-favorite Marvel character, Avenger, and future wife of Hawkeye, Mockingbird.

Mockingbird is the alter-ego of super spy Bobbi Morse, who will first appear in the fifth episode of the upcoming season, debuting “perhaps not as an ally to Coulson and his team.”

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. marks Palicki’s third superhero television series. She infamously played Wonder Woman in the failed NBC pilot from David E. Kelley in 2011, and played the character Nadia in The WB’s Aquaman pilot in 2006.

Palicki is just the latest addition to the series, which has been picking up quite a few guest stars over the past few weeks including Xena: Warrior Princess and Battlestar Galactica alum Lucy Lawless as S.H.I.E.L.D. veteran Isabel Hartly, Reed Diamond (Dollhouse) as Hydra baddie Daniel Whitehall a. »

DVD Review – Scintilla (2014)

18 August 2014 11:22 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Scintilla, 2014.

Directed by Billy O’Brien

Starring John Lynch, Morjana Alaoui, Craig Conway

Synopsis:

An elite team of mercenaries are hired to infiltrate an underground laboratory, deep inside a former Soviet state, to obtain a scientific specimen. Once they arrive they soon realise that this isn’t a straightforward recovery mission, and are soon battling for survival.

This film had a reasonable premise and the simple ingredients necessary for the basics of an atmospheric horror flick; isolation, claustrophobic situations and an enemy they’ve never fought the like of before. Unfortunately it doesn’t make the most of these and as a consequence it fails to deliver its potential.

The team, led by Powell (John Lynch), take far too long to get to the base and I was bored by the flashbacks of how some of the team came together; at times these flashbacks seemed to be almost randomly dropped »

Sharlto Copley And Michelle Forbes Join Playstation’s Powers Series

18 August 2014 5:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Playstation Network’s long-gestating adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming’s Powers graphic novel has finally found its two leads. After a few weeks of on-again off-again negotiations, District 9 star Sharlto Copley and Battlestar Galactica alum Michelle Forbes have joined the 10-episode superhero crime drama.

Copley, who’s been making a name for himself in high-profile projects like Elysium, Maleficent, and The A-Team, will make his small screen debut as Christian Walker, who is described as a “dapper and charismatic faded hero who lost his powers in a battle with a super-human mass killer.” Now a detective who works with law enforcement, he uses his unique experience to investigate crimes in the Powers community with his partner, Detective Deena Pilgrim (Susan Heyward).

Forbes, on the other hand, will take the role of Retro Girl, a world-famous superheroine whose mysterious murder »

NBC’s Constantine Has Found Its Papa Midnite

16 August 2014 11:08 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After an extensive search, it looks like NBC has finally found its villain for Constantine. According to USA Today, newcomer Michael James Shaw has been cast in a recurring role as Papa Midnite, the “voodoo king of New Orleans” and a formidable magical adversary to the series’ titular supernatural detective.

Shaw is known for such riveting roles as “Caterer” in Today _ _ cks, “Homesless Man” on The Wire (uncredited), and “Don-o-mite” in an eponymous 2014 short film. Needless to say, Constantine is the biggest role he’s landed yet, and I’m interested to see what he does with it.

Papa Midnite was last played by Gladiator and Guardians of the Galaxy alum Djimon Hounsou, who was great in an otherwise lackluster film. In the comics, Midnite first appeared in Hellblazer issue #1 as an immortal mob boss, businessman, and voodoo practitioner operating out of New York City. He often operates on the wrong side of the law, »

‘Outlander’ Renewed for Season 2

15 August 2014 1:59 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Two years ago, Sony Pictures Television acquired the rights to Diana Gabaldon’s best-selling novel, Outlander, and tapped Battlestar Galactica‘s Ronald D. Moore to helm the TV adaptation of the multi-genre story. A year ago, Starz picked up the Outlander series and ordered a 16-episode first season, which recently premiered on the network, and a week prior online (check out our review of ‘Sassenach’).

Starz has seen success in the past with Spartacus, and more recently with Black Sails, but the network enjoyed record-breaking, multiplatform ratings when Outlander premiered. Despite the show’s newness, the response from fans of Gabaldon’s novel, casual viewers, and critics alike has been largely positive and led to Starz renewing Outlander for a second season.

Adam Gierasch Enters the House by the Lake

15 August 2014 11:54 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Director Adam Gierasch is a wonderfully sick, twisted, and talented man. That's why whenever news comes our way that he's working on a new flick, we're on it like white on rice on a paper plate in a snowstorm. Read on for your first details of the House by the Lake.

According to Bloody Disgusting, Gierasch will be directing from a screenplay by Josh Burnell (Boone: The Bounty Hunter). James Callis ("Battlestar Galactica," "The Musketeers"), Anne Dudek ("Mad Men," "House"), Amiah Miller ("Clementine"), and Michael Bowen ("Breaking Bad," Django Unchained) star.

Synopsis:

House by the Lake tells the story of the Morgans, a loving yet troubled family hoping to reconnect on their vacation. When their autistic 10-year-old daughter (Miller) begins to fixate on a mysterious friend who may or may not be real, she retreats further into her own world, and family tensions rise to the surface.

Starz Greenlights Outlander Season 2; Will Adapt the Second Book in Diana Gabaldon’s Historical Fiction Series

15 August 2014 10:31 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Not even a week after the premiere episode of Starz’s Outlander debuted, the network has already given the greenlight for Outlander Season 2.  The show is based on the bestselling series of Diana Gabaldon novels and tells the story of Claire Randall, a married combat nurse from 1945 who is mysteriously transported back in time to 1743.  The books (there are eight in total) traverse the genres of romance, science fiction, history, and adventure, making them ripe for the visual medium of TV.  Battlestar Galactica showrunner Ronald D. Moore is at the helm of the Outlander TV show, spearheading what looks to be a rather successful adaptation (read Allison’s review here). Starz has ordered “at least 13 episodes” of Outlander Season 2, which will be based on the second book in Gabaldon’s series, Dragonfly in Amber.  This first season consists of 16 episodes, so one imagines that could be in the cards for the second season as well. »

Outlander Renewed for Season 2 by Starz

15 August 2014 9:54 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Starz isn't messing around when it comes to turning freshman drama Outlander into a thriving franchise.

Some call it a feminist Game of Thrones. Others a drawn out period love story. Ultimately viewers as a whole are digging Outlander enough that Starz took the initiative this morning by renewing Outlander for Season 2 less than a week removed from the series premiere's first TV airing on August 8.

Starz originally debuted the Outlander series premiere as a free online streaming event on their official website. That sneak peek of the unedited series premiere garnered over 5 million total viewers through one week of availability.

Outlander is an adaptation of the first book by Diana Gabaldon from an eight-book series that has in total sold more than 20 million copies. It was adapted for the small screen by Ronald D. Moore of Battlestar Galactica fame and brought with it a huge fan base from the original printed story, »

Starz gives 'Outlander' a swift Season 2 renewal

15 August 2014 7:35 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After a successful premiere week drawing 5 million viewers across all platforms, as well as some of the strongest reviews in network history, "Outlander" has received a predictably speedy renewal from Starz. Starz announced on Friday (August 15) morning that "Outlander" has been picked up for a second season, based on the second book in Diana Gabaldon's series of best-selling novels "Dragonfly in Amber." As of now, Starz is only saying that the second season will be "at least" 13 episodes, though it certainly wouldn't be surprising to get more episodes given both the series' early success and also the slightly expanded length of the second novel, which I guess I'll probably have to read now.  Fortunately, "Outlander" fans won't run out of episodes to watch for a while, since the 16-episode first season is being split into two halves, with the first eight episodes airing this fall through September 27.

Katee Sackhoff on superhero rumors: 'I have not sat down with anybody from Marvel'

14 August 2014 6:33 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) No, Katee Sackhoff isn’t playing a Marvel superhero. At least, not yet. The "Battlestar Galactica" veteran found herself in an unusual position last week, having to shoot down rumors that she’s starring in an upcoming Marvel Studios movie, stemming from enigmatic clues she was dropping on Twitter. Despite fans’ wishes to the contrary, Sackhoff isn’t in line for a Marvel role. However, that doesn’t mean she’s not interested. “As of this moment, I have not sat down with anybody from Marvel for any role specifically,” she told Vulture. “But that doesn’t necessarily mean that something with Marvel is completely off the table for the future.” Sackhoff’s comments seemingly put an end speculation she’ll play Carol Danvers (aka Captain Marvel) in the upcoming "Avengers: Age of Ultron." But it also suggests there’s interest on the part of Sackhoff, and of Marvel, »

Battlestar Galactica's Katee Sackhoff Hasn't Actually Met With Marvel Studios... Yet

14 August 2014 4:51 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

We've been hearing rumors regarding a possible role for Katee Sackhoff at Marvel Studios for months and months now. Ever since it became clear that the company is getting serious about a female superhero movie, fans of the Battlestar Galactica actress have been vocal about the idea of her getting a part (the most popular suggestion being a movie about Captain Marvel a.k.a. Ms. Marvel). As much as geeks around the world might want it to happen, however, there have yet to be any real conversations between the studio and the star. Vulture caught up with Sackhoff last night at the Kiehl.s Liferide 5th Anniversary Festival, and took the opportunity to ask her point blank if any of the connections rumored between her and Marvel Studios were actually real. While this is going to bum some people out, the actress admitted that while she has had the »

Guess Who Might Cameo In "Ant-Man"?

14 August 2014 3:10 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Whilst there has been plenty of talk about which characters and superheroes might pop up in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," there's been hardly any such speculation about Marvel's upcoming "Ant-Man" film which has been seen as more of a standalone project.

That changes today with a report from Latino Review that talks about the revisions to Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish's script for the film. It seems amongst the earliest of those revisions was a way to better integrate the film into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In earlier drafts of the script, the first act prologue reportedly has the younger version of Michael Douglas' Hank Pym character having a meeting at S.H.I.E.L.D during its early stages (it's not made clear what time period this is). There he meets up with "Captain America: The First Avenger" characters Howard Stark, Peggy Carter, Armin Zola and. »

Downton Abbey

With the fifth season of ITV's venerated period drama "Downton Abbey" kicking off this Fall in the UK, the show's executive producer Gareth Neame tells Deadline there are "no plans to end the show at all." The comment is a change from previous years where comments by some involved in the production indicated that the show's end may be in sight.

Whilst critics haven't been as enamoured with the most recent fourth season as they were with previous years, 'Downton' still managed to reap twelve Emmy nominations this year and is still a ratings powerhouse in both the U.K. and United States. New photos from the upcoming fifth season are also up at EW.

Arrow

The 50th episode of The CW's "Arrow" began filming this week and boasts the episode title "The Magician". This quickly led to speculation online that the character of Zatanna would appear, a »

Katee Sackhoff puts to rest Ms Marvel casting rumors she helped start

14 August 2014 2:55 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Katee Sackhoff gets some serious hate on this site and I am not sure why. Yeah, she may not be the greatest actress out there, but she has taken part in some quality genre projects like Battlestar Galactica. Her geek love should have made her a darling for fanboys, but instead she draws quite a bit of ire. Maybe it is because she keeps associating herself with projects that she has no link to, like the long rumored Ms/Captain Marvel movie that Marvel has yet to officially announce. Last »
