Rachael Taylor Cast as Hellcat in Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones

30 January 2015 4:23 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The Netflix and Marvel series A.K.A. Jessica Jones just cast Rachael Taylor as Patricia “Trish” Walker. I've only seen her in Transformers and 666 Park Avenue, so I'm going to try to not prejudge this Australian actress too harshly as I haven't seen her more acclaimed work. She will be suiting up as the hero Hellcat. I'm not familiar with the character at all and based on the lack of good art out there, I'm guessing she's pretty obscure. From what I've gleaned, she has psionic abilities and can move objects via telekinesis. I'm fully expecting the yellow catsuit to be toned down or adapted into something far more practical.

So far, Taylor joins Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), David Tennant (Kilgrave), and Mike Colter (Luke Cage). Because this will potentially fit into the Marvel cineverse, we already have some high expectations for the quality and tone of the series.

Rachael Taylor cast as Hellcat in A.K.A. Jessica Jones

30 January 2015 5:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the announcement that former Doctor Who star David Tennant would be taking on the role of The Purple Man in Netflix and Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones, they’ve now announced today that Rachael Taylor (Transformers) has been cast as Patsy Walker, aka Hellcat.

The character of Patsy Walker debuted all the way back in 1944 as part of Miss America Magazine #2, but would become part of the Marvel 616 Universe when she showed up in the pages of Fantastic Four Annual #3 in 1965. She would then be rebranded a decade later as the Avenger and superhero Hellcat. In the show, she will be rebranded again as Patricia “Trish” Walker.

“Trish is a syndicated radio talk show host, former model and child TV star known to her adoring fans as “Patsy” Walker,” Marvel.com writes. “As Jessica Jones’ closest friend, Trish helps her embark on the most dangerous case of Jessica’s career. »

Aka Jessica Jones: Rachael Taylor to play a superhero?

30 January 2015 12:58 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Grey’s Anatomy star Rachael Taylor will play Patricia Walker, who becomes Hellcat, in Marvel’s Aka Jessica Jones Netflix series…

Here’s an interesting one – Marvel has announced that the character Patricia Walker will be appearing in their Netflix show Aka Jessica Jones. In the comics, she eventually became the superhero Hellcat.

Hellcat, in the comics, is a member of both the Defenders and the Avengers at various points. She is gifted with telekinesis, psychic resistance, retractable claws and some respectable martial arts skills. Intriguingly, she fought alongside Doctor Strange in one of her first adventures.

However, it seems that the show – for starters, at least – will be sticking closer to Patricia’s origins in the humour and romance comic book titles of the 1940s. It took from 1944 until 1976 for her transformation into Hellcat to take place, so it’s not too surprising that Marvel Studios aren’t starting at that point. »

Rachael Taylor Helps ‘Jessica Jones’ Get Her Groove Back

29 January 2015 11:32 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Casting news is coming thick and fast from Netflix’s Jessica Jones TV series, titled A.K.A Jessica Jones. Krysten Ritter is the lead, with Mike Colter as Luke Cage. David Tennant has been confirmed as villain Kilgrave. And now Australian actress Rachael Taylor completes the line up, taking the role of Trish Walker.

Walker is Jones’ best friend and certainly packs it in on the CV front – not only is she a talk radio host, she used to be a model and TV star. Oh, and she’s also known as costumed whup-ass merchant Hellcat.

The show follows Ritter as she rebuilds her life after quitting her job as a superhero and will be dovetailed into a Defenders miniseries featuring the likes of Charlie Cox’s Daredevil and Colter’s Cage.

Taylor is probably familiar to most from her work in Transformers and Grey’s Anatomy, though she »

Marvel’s ‘A.K.A. Jessica Jones’ has found their Hellcat

29 January 2015 3:17 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The casting announcements just keep rolling for Marvel and Netflix’s upcoming series “A.K.A. Jessica Jones.” Actress Rachael Taylor (“Transformers,” “Grey’s Anatomy”) joins the cast as Jessica Jones’ best friend Patricia “Trish” Walker. Of course, Trish is better known as her alter ego, the superhero Hellcat. “A.K.A. Jessica Jones” executive producer told Marvel, “The character is a star and a powerhouse, and required an actress who is both […] Rachael is all that and more!” Marvel declined to go into detail about Walker’s take on the character, saying only that she will “…embody a character that must balance both the darker and lighter elements of our series.” For those unfamiliar with the character, Hellcat is a bit of a meta-superhero. The product of a Kardashian-like momager who peddled her daughter to childhood fame in the form of modeling and a Very Popular fictionalized comic book about her life, »

Marvel’s 'A.K.A. Jessica Jones' Adds Rachael Taylor As 'The Defenders' Character Hellcat

29 January 2015 1:33 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Admittedly, it’s fascinating to watch Marvel build their Cinematic Universe as it applies to the small screen on Netflix. The movie and now TV branch of Marvel isn’t afraid of overlap, crossover, or pre-introduce characters before they get their own show. While “Daredevil” seems like it will be fairly stand-alone, "A.K.A Jessica Jones," starring Krysten Ritter, already has Luke Cage (Mike Colter) as part of the show. His solo series won’t come out until later, but it’s a smart way to introduce a character, especially given that the actor isn’t well-known yet. And it looks like the show will be doing even more world building. Today Marvel and Netflix announced that Aussie actress Rachael Taylor (“The Loft,” “Transformers”) will star as Patricia “Trish” Walker on 'Jessica Jones.' While there’s been some speculation and doubt that “Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones” will actually »

Tyrese Gibson Is Not-So-Subtly Vying for the Lead in the Upcoming Green Lantern Movie

27 January 2015 1:59 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Move over, Ryan Reynolds. There might be a new Green Lantern in town. Tyrese Gibson has launched an extremely unsubtle campaign vying for the lead in DC Comics' 2020 reboot of the superhero film. Posting about 14 photos on the picture-sharing app, Gibson has made it very clear that he's ready to take on the green suit. The actor and Instagram user @Bosslogic seemed to have teamed up to help the Transformers star "get that ring." Tyrese posted one of Bosslogic's pics of himself dressed as the superhero and captioned it, "Determined!!!!!! 20|20 shout to @bosslogix 'I am fully committed to suiting up for this adventure' - @Tyrese #Gl 'In brightest day, in blackest night, No evil shall »

Hasbro to Develop Big Screen Adaptation of Gobots?

27 January 2015 6:02 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The GoBots are a staple of my childhood. I think I own more GoBots toys than I did Transformers because they were cheaper. With all of the 1980s cartoon and toy properties being developed as feature films, I guess it was only a matter of time before GoBots joined in on the party. 

The property never really caught on like Transformers did, so it eventually died off. One thing that GoBots and Transformers had in common, though, was the voice of Peter Cullen, who played both  Optimus Prime and Tank. Now, thanks to TFW2005, we've learned that Hasbro recently filed documents to the United States Patent and Trademark Office for a new GoBots trademark under "distribution of motion pictures, ongoing television programs" and "Toys, games and playthings, namely, toy vehicles and accessories for use therewith."

They are obviously interested in resurrecting the GoBots, but who knows if anything will actually happen with it. »

Revenge Never Tasted Sweeter Than in This Scene From 'Project Almanac' (Exclusive)

27 January 2015 4:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In "Project Almanac," a twisty time travel thriller produced by "Transformers" overlord Michael Bay that opens this Friday, a group of teens stumble across a time machine, although it may as well be Aladdin's lamp, the way that they devise new and increasingly clever ways of utilizing folds in the space-time continuum for their own personal gain. In a way, it is one of the more believable time travel stories out there, because if teens were to gain access to this technology, chances are they'd use it to win the lottery or go to Lollapalooza and not, say, kill Hilter or prematurely end Vietnam.

In our exclusive clip, you get to see the kids really playing around with their newfound powers in a way that only kids would.

This clip shows the group getting back on some bullies that dump a giant soda on Christina (Virginia Gardner), since apparently this »

Joss Whedon Confirms It's Highly Unlikely He'll Direct the Next 'Avengers' Movies

26 January 2015 9:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Every big franchise director has that moment where, after a movie seems like it cannot possibly be topped but everyone knows the franchise is going to keep going, they say they're not going to direct the next movie. Michael Bay is perhaps the worst at this. He's played a "Nah, not doing another Transformers" for three sequels now, even though he inevitably comes back each time. Well, now Joss Whedon has confirmed speculation that he is not going to direct Avengers: Infinity War, which will be broken up into two parts. But don't take this as him playing the "Will I? Won't I?" game in the press; his reasoning here is actually very understandable. From Empire Magazine, via ComicBookMovie: "I couldn't imagine doing this...

Wait, Go-Bots Might Get Their Own Movie?

26 January 2015 3:00 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

After the massive success that has been had thanks to Michael Bay's Transformers movies, Hasbro is looking to bring a brand new set of robots to the big-screen - this time in the shape of the Go-Bots. According to TFW2005.com, which is a Transformers fan page, Hasbro is hoping to compliment the huge success of Michael Bay.s hugely divisive franchise with these Go-Bots movies. The aforementioned publication has learned that on January 21st and January 24th, Hasbro applied for a new Go-Bots trademark that suggests they are looking to expand that franchise to cinemas. This new trademark would allow them to make money from the "distribution of motion pictures, on-going television programs" as well as "toys, games and playthings, namely toy vehicles and accessories for use therewith." But who exactly are the Go-Bots? Well, they are a bit of a cult commodity nowadays. Between 1984 and 1985, there were »

Tyrese Gibson 'Commits' To Green Lantern Lobbying; Calls Out Fan-Favorite Contender Idris Elba

25 January 2015 8:20 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Just a couple days ago, one piece of Green Lantern fan art had visualized Tyrese Gibson as the character's John Stewart persona, and it essentially revealed the singer-turned-actor's interest in portraying the DC superhero on the big-screen. Today, the Transformers star has posted not one or two, but six additional fan art pieces to his Instagram with captions that further express his interest in the Emerald Crusader's cinematic reboot at Warner Bros.; Gibson even called out his potential competition. "Loving this energy...., Idris [Elba] fall back I got this!" he said in one caption. In another, Tyrese wrongly recited the Green Lantern oath before later reassuring that "I am fully committed to suiting up for this adventure." Clearly, Gibson and some very talented artists are having fun with the potential casting, but who knows if lobbying on social media will actually land him the role in Justice League Part One on »

Tyrese Gibson As 'John Stewart'? Transformers Star Charges Up Green Lantern 'Rumor'

23 January 2015 8:35 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

As Warner Bros. announced last year, the Green Lantern reboot is set for release on June 19, 2020, and is currently the last DC Comics film on the studio's superhero slate. However, it's been implied that a fresh take on the Emerald Crusader will feature in Zack Snyder's two-part Justice League movies in 2017 and 2018, which makes it somewhat interesting that singer/actor Tyrese Gibson (Transformers) recently posted fan-art of himself as the Green Lantern on Instagram and with the caption: "Rumor has it that." Given this would be a Warner Bros. production, Gibson is not likely teasing that he has the role or is even in talks, but he could be taking cues from his Fast & Furious 6 co-star Vin Diesel, whose social media lobbying landed him in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Sure, this might not be the best way to join DC's Universe, but what do you think of the »
