Tony Stark To Upgrade To Superior Iron Man

17 July 2014 5:05 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

Seriously Marvel? Look, we’re not Quicksilver (although we are devilishly handsome, if we do say so ourselves). How do you expect us to keep up with all these announcements? First the news that Thor was to become a woman, then that Sam Wilson was to replace Steve Rogers in the role of Captain America, and now they’ve announced that Tony Stark is going to be taking a very different route as a Superior Iron Man. Tapping into the darker part of the ego Tony’s possessed…pretty much since day one, the new Iron Man series will see him heading to tech capital San Francisco and unleashing a version of his Extremis technology. Yeah, we don’t see that going wrong. Nope. Not at all.

Written by Tom Taylor alongside artist Yildray Cinar, Superior Iron Man will launch this November, and somehow be connected to the upcoming Avengers/X-Men crossover Axis. »

Syfy has given a series green light to "12 Monkeys," a drama based on the 1995 Universal Pictures film directed by Terry Gilliam, and a promo trailer for it has sneaked online quietly all under-the-radar like. Check it out, and look for more official stuff from Syfy later.

The series is produced by Universal Cable Productions and Atlas Entertainment, producer of the original theatrical film.

Said Dave Howe, “‘12 Monkeys’ is a captivating time travel adventure and high stakes race against the clock. We are thrilled to add it to our slate of engaging and thought-provoking new scripted projects, including the recently announced event series ‘Ascension’ and the second season renewal of ‘Helix’ from Ron Moore.”

Atlas Entertainment’s Charles Roven (American Hustle, Man of Steel, The Dark Knight Trilogy) and Richard Suckle (American Hustle, The International), will executive produce. Roven produced the original film. Jake Kurily will serve as Atlas’ executive on the series. »

We’ve seen a handful of set photos, but Marvel Studios have now finally revealed our first official look at Joss Whedon’s sequel to 2012′s hugely successful Avengers Assemble; Avengers: Age of Ultron.

On the cover of the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, we see Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America and Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, with the villainous Ultron (who will be voiced by The Blacklist’s James Spader) and his robotic army lurking in the background as the world burns.

They also have the first plot details for the movie, and reveal that Avengers: Age of Ultron will feature Tony Stark creating Ultron – a self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence designed to help assess threats, and direct Stark’s Iron Legion of drones – in order to allow himself to walk away from the Iron Man armour and for his fellow Avengers to also get »

'Heroes: Reborn' creator: Show to focus on 'brand new characters, brand new ideas'

15 July 2014 6:13 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Zachary Quinto and Ali Larter don’t want to return to "Heroes," and that works just fine for creator Tim Kring. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, the "Heroes: Reborn" mastermind opened up about his plans for the resurrected superhero series, stressing that he plans to emphasize a new cast of heroes and villains — with the exception of a handful of veterans returning to the mix, like Jack Coleman as Noah Bennet. “The vast, vast majority are brand new characters, brand new ideas,” Kring said about the new incarnation, which is set in a post-Season 4 universe where the existence of super-powered people became public knowledge. “[Bringing back previous characters is] really only to give a sense of continuity and a tether to the original world. If it was all completely brand new, we’d miss certain elements that need to be there to give you that bridge to cross to something new. I approached Coleman because »

Series Creator Says Heroes: Reborn Will Focus Heavily On New Characters

15 July 2014 9:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Like millions of television viewers, I was quite disappointed by the way NBC’s once-beloved series Heroes took a nose dive from exciting science fiction drama to cringe-worthy melodrama after a stellar first season. The show never reached the same heights again, but managed to limp on for 3 more seasons before getting put out of its misery in 2010.

Part of the show’s problem was its 22-episode format and stagnant group of characters, so the planned 2015 relaunch of the series, Heroes: Reborn, sounds like it could serve as a bit of an antidote to those mistakes. NBC announced their plans for the 13-episode “event series” earlier this year, and though we’ll all likely go into it with a bit of caution, some new details do make me a bit more optimistic about the show’s return.

Original series creator Tim Kring is on board for the reboot, and »

Heroes creator Tim Kring talks Heroes Reborn

15 July 2014 4:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in February, NBC announced that it is reviving Heroes for a new 13-part miniseries entitled Heroes Reborn, which was described as a reboot of the once-popular TV series. However, since then it’s been revealed that Jack Coleman is reprising the role of Noah Bennet (a.k.a. the Man in the Horn-Rimmed Glasses), indicating that Heroes Reborn would be more continuation than reboot. In recent days, both Ali Larter and Zachary Quinto have revealed that they won’t be returning, and now show creator Tim Kring has spoken to Entertainment Weekly about the revival, stating that it will have a strong focus on new characters.

“It takes place in a post-season 4 universe. So it will tie into some of the ideas that were left dangling. The vast, vast majority are brand new characters, brand new ideas. [Bringing back previous characters is] really only to give a sense of continuity and a tether to the original world. »

The Leftovers, Ep. 1.03, “Two Planes and a Helicopter,” takes us to church, but fails to convert

14 July 2014 6:31 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Leftovers, Season 1, Episode 3, “Two Planes and a Helicopter”

Written by Damon Lindelof & Jacqueline Hoyt

Directed by Keith Gordon

Airs Sundays at 10pm Est on HBO

What is The Leftovers? A mystery wrapped in an enigma, sure, but what else is on the show’s mind, and most importantly, what does it have to offer as a new series? Now that we have three episodes, we should begin to suss out the themes and make a guess of whether we as an audience want to stick with it, if it’s a show that speaks to us, or is making a worthy statement. What’s odd, though, is that there are too many different shows to work through here to figure out if that’s coming. Further, usually if this happens in a show, it happens with different story lines and characters, but in Mapleton that’s not even the case. »

'Heroes: Reborn': Zachary Quinto doesn't expect to return, Ali Larter is out

14 July 2014 5:57 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) As of now, only one former "Heroes" actor is returning for NBC’s upcoming "Heroes: Reborn" miniseries: Jack Coleman, the man behind the Horn-Rimmed Glasses. Here’s someone who won’t be joining Coleman for the show’s revival: Zachary Quinto. The "Star Trek" actor, who played the brain-dissecting chameleon Sylar for the original four seasons, says he doesn’t expect to return, in part because of scheduling issues. “I’ve been in touch with Tim [Kring, creator] and he told me they were doing this and we left the door open for me to be involved,” he told IGN, “The trouble is really my availability. I don’t know that it would really even be possible.” Beyond his availability, Quinto said he’s not sure he should revisit a role as iconic as Sylar, preferring to leave it in the past. “That experience and role and opportunity really changed my »

Zachary Quinto In 'Heroes: Reborn'?

14 July 2014 1:51 PM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

"Heroes" will soon make a small screen return, rebooted as "Heroes: Reborn," a miniseries on NBC.

Zachary Quinto played a major role in the original series as Sylar – but will the actor be seen in the new show?

"I don't really know the trajectory of that," Zachary told Access Hollywood at the Television Critics Association event in Beverly Hills, as he sat down to discuss his Starz reality filmmaking competition, "The Chair." "I've been in touch with Tim Kring, the creator of 'Heroes,' because he's a great guy and changed my life and sent me on a ...

‘Dig’ on USA: Producers Debut Trailer, Talk Israel Filming Difficulties and Limited Series Model

14 July 2014 11:25 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

USA Network debuted the first trailer from new drama “Dig” at the Television Critics Assn. summer press tour on Monday, with executive producers Tim Kring and Gideon Raff, along with stars Anne Heche and Jason Isaacs, on hand to introduce the high-concept series.

Drawing comparisons to “The Da Vinci Code,” USA’s “Dig” stars Isaacs as Peter Connelly, an FBI agent stationed in Jerusalem who, while investigating a mystery surrounding a young female archeologist named Emma (Alison Sudol), uncovers a conspiracy 2000 years in the making. Heche stars as Lynn Monahan, the head of the Jerusalem FBI office, Peter’s boss and casual lover. Regina Taylor joins the cast in the recurring role of Ruth Ridell, the U.S. Ambassador to Israel who has little time for the problems that Peter creates with the local authorities. Also recurring in the series are actors David Costabile, playing Ted Billingham, a coiffed and »

"Heroes" Creator Talks About Upcoming Reboot

14 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Heroes" series creator Tim Kring has revealed that it was the network who came to him rather than the other way around when the talk of rebooting NBC's once popular superhero series began.

Speaking with EW, Kring spoke about the origin of the upcoming "Heroes Reborn" and where he intends to go with it:

"To be honest, it wasn’t a pitch from me, it was a pitch from NBC to me. They saw the value in that franchise and brand and asked if I was interested in helming it again. And we had left the story in a place where we had more story to tell.

So given the opportunity, I had ideas of where I wanted the story to go originally when we were hoping for a fifth season and so when we were given the opportunity five years late, some of those same thoughts were there as to where this story goes. »

"Heroes Reborn" is still being developed, but creator Tim Kring said he would be open to seeing another slogan for the reboot of the NBC show.

"Save the cheerleader, save the world," was the slogan for the original "Heroes" series, and after the panel for his new USA show, "Dig," on Monday at the Television Critics Association Summer Tour in Beverly Hills, AccessHollywood.com asked Kring if he'd like another catch phrase for "Heroes Reborn."

USA's Dig Promises Closed-End Story (With Ties to Third Temple Prophecy?)

14 July 2014 10:47 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

USA Network’s Dig promises to spin a closed-ended, six-episode story that maybe just might rub up against, Da Vinci Code-style, a provocative religious concept.

From executive producers Tim Kring (Heroes) and Gideon Raff (Homeland) and premiering this fall, Dig stars Jason Isaacs (Awake) as Peter Connelly, an FBI agent stationed in Jerusalem, who, while investigating a mystery surrounding the murder of a young female archaeologist, uncovers a conspiracy 2,000 years in the making.

Press tour: 'Dig' finds complications and advantages in Jersualem filming

14 July 2014 10:41 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Filming on location — particularly a location as old and rich with historical and spiritual import as Jerusalem — brings many advantages to a show like USA's upcoming conspiracy thriller "Dig." But it also carries with it significant risks. "Dig" stars Jason Isaacs and Anne Heche and producers Tim Kring ("Heroes") and Gideon Raff (creator of the Israeli series that inspired "Homeland," and deposed creator of FX's "Tyrant") came to press tour this morning eager to talk about their show and their excitement about getting to film it in Jerusalem, but they also had to acknowledge the complications that have resulted from the current wave of Israeli-Palestinian violence(*). (*) The blog's No Politics rule goes into full effect on this subject. "Dig" was already on a pre-planned hiatus after finishing its pilot episode, Raff explained, but for the time being, the show won't resume production until the conflict either subsides or until they »

'The Leftovers' Christopher Eccleston on Faith, Hope and Clarity

14 July 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Unless you are a Dr. Who fan — in which you'd immediately recognize him as the ninth version of the time-traveling doctor  — Christopher Eccleston is one of those character actors who usually prompts a "where have I seen him before?" reaction. It might have been as the flatmate whose greed drives him insane in Danny Boyle's Shallow Grave (1994) or as the powermad military man fighting off the infected in 28 Days Later... (2002). He may be familiar to you as a metaphorically ghostly presence in The Others (2001) or a literal invisible man from the NBC show Heroes. »

Heroes Creator Tim Kring Says 13-Episode Miniseires Heroes: Reborn Will Focus Heavily on New Characters

14 July 2014 9:12 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I was never fan of Heroes.  I thought it was poorly written with laughably bad special effects, but it found a following because it had a novel concept (or at least a novel concept for those who hadn't read J. Michael Straczynski's comic series Rising Stars).  However, the thin screenwriting became apparent over the course of 22-episode seasons, and the show eventually burnt out for those who kept hoping that there would be some consistency in the reveals or that storylines would have time to play out naturally before yet another game-changing twist. So perhaps the show will be better suited for a 13-episode limited series.  Earlier this year, NBC announced they were launching Heroes: Reborn, and now creator Tim Kring has provided a few details on what fans can expect.  Hit the jump for more. As far as returning characters, Jack Coleman is set to reprise his role as Noah Bennet, »
