Khary Payton as King Ezekiel Revealed in Walking Dead Season 7
Leading up to today's The Walking Dead panel at Comic-Con, many expected that the show's cast and producers would reveal the premiere date and the first trailer for the hotly-anticipated Season 7, which is currently in production. Thankfully, both came as scheduled, with the trailer also giving fans their first look at a character who has long been rumored, King Ezekiel of The Kingdom. It was announced during the panel that actor Khary Payton has come aboard to play this iconic character from the comics.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Khary Payton will have a series regular role, joining the 20 previously-confirmed series regulars in Season 7. Of course, one of these characters will not be sticking around too long, with the Season 7 premiere set to reveal who the victim of Negan's (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) brutal beating is. We don't know for sure exactly when we'll meet Ezekiel, but he will certainly have

A Look at Dwayne McDuffie’s Last Cartoon Movie Hurrah - 'Justice League: Doom'

It is almost exactly one-and-a-half years since the passing of media maestro Dwayne McDuffie, known more widely for his writing on the various "Justice League" cartoon series of the past decade, as well as for "Ben 10: Alien Force/Ultimate Alien," but more prominent as a comic book writer, enthusiast and advocate for better Black representation in that medium which he backed up in 1993 by being the co-founder of Milestone Media, which, along with other Black creators, established a universe within a universe at DC Comics (home to Superman, Batman, etc) populated by mostly Black and ‘minority’ heroes such as Hardware, Icon, the Blood Syndicate, and their most continual...

‘Ben 10′ Cinematic Live Action Feature Being Drafted

If you don’t know who Ben 10 is, then you’re obviously not a cool hip-happening dude. Ben 10 is your average kid who has a device that allows him to transform into different species of aliens. It’s an exciting series that has spawned into a media franchise that has grossed over $2 billion. Ben 10 has had two animated series, Ben 10 and Ben 10: Alien Force, as well as animated movies and a couple of live-action straight to DVD films.

But now it’s time for the popular character to take on the big-screen in a big budget take on the character. Producer Joel Silver is bringing the property to the screen and Ryan Engle has been drafted in to touch up a screenplay, originally by Albert Torres. Engle is yet to have a feature length film released, but is currently working on an adaptation of the Kaiju-inspired video game Rampage.

Toy Review: Ben 10 Alien Collection 10cm action figure – Rath

If you’re a long time Blogomatic 3000 visitor you’ll probably know that I’m a bit of a comic fan, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I’m a fan of “Man of Action”, the group comprised of comic writers and artists Duncan Rouleau, Joe Casey, Joe Kelly and Steven T Seagle, who created Ben 10 and Generator Rex, and have been involved in the new Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon.

For those of you not down with the kids, Ben 10 is a cartoon about a boy who acquires a watch-like alien device called the Omnitrix which allows him to transform into a range of bizarre looking alien creatures. Ben 10 has since been succeeded by Ben 10: Alien Force, Ben 10: Ultimate Alien, and Ben 10: Omniverse. Each new cartoon series has seen the characters mature, introduced or altered existing relationships, introduced new villains and alien transformations.

Ben 10 creators discuss the live-action movie adaptation

Last June it was announced that Warner Bros. and producer Joel Silver were to develop a big screen take on the hugely popular children's superhero property Ben 10, and while we've heard very little since, Duncan Rouleau and Steven Seagle - two members of Man of Action Studios, the team behind Ben 10 and the new Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon - have briefly updated the status of the project in an interview with MTV Splash Page.

"We’ve met with Silver a couple of times but it’s very early in the development stages to really discuss it any further than that. Other than we are also equally as excited by the prospects," said Rouleau, while his colleague Seagle provided a little more insight: "It’s a live action film as far as we know... They’ve commissioned a script, which is exciting and we had a lot of cool conversations

'Ben 10' Creators Discuss Live-Action Movie Plans

by Ryan Rigley

"Ben 10," arguably one of the best original superhero concepts to come out of the past decade, has been one of Cartoon Network's most popular cartoon series for quite some time now. Spawning two sequel series and multiple straight to TV movies, it's no wonder that Hollywood now has their collective eye on the sensational sci-fi property.

During a recent interview with Man of Action Studios, the creators of "Ben 10" and producers of the upcoming "Ultimate Spider-Man" cartoon, the team confirmed that there are indeed plans for a live action "Ben 10" movie. Already attached to the project is famed producer Joel Silver, who's resume includes the likes of "Die Hard," "Predator," "Lethal Weapon," "V For Vendetta," the entire "Matrix" trilogy, and many other well known, big budget movies. Clearly, "Ben 10" is in very capable hands.

Joel Silver Gets Animated Over 'Ben 10' Live-Action Film

Filed under: Movie News

Joel Silver is not one to give up on a concept. After the abysmal failure of 'Speed Racer,' he's going to take another crack at kids cartoon fare by developing a live-action feature film based on the Cartoon Network's 'Ben 10' animated sci-fi franchise. And, according to Variety, he has plans to take it to Warner Bros. in hopes of creating a new franchise.

For those of you without pre-adolescent boys or an interest in animated fare, Ben Tennyson is a typical kid who becomes very atypical after he discovers the Omnitrix, a mysterious, alien watch-like weapon with the power to transform the wearer into 10 different alien species with superpowers, which he uses to save the world. The first series began in 2005; followed by a somewhat darker second series, 'Ben 10: Alien Force,' in 2008; followed by a third series,

One of Milestone’s featured characters, Static, made the leap to television in 2000 as the hero of the award-winning animated series Static Shock.

In Memoriam: Comics Creator Dwayne McDuffie

Comics and cartoon writer Dwayne McDuffie, who most recently penned the script for the DC Animated feature All-Star Superman, passed away from complications from a surgical procedure he had on Monday.

McDuffie got his start in comics as a member of Marvel's editorial staff in the 1980s. While an editor at Marvel, McDuffie began writing the Damage Control miniseries and helped to revamp the Deathlok character. Eventually, McDuffie began writing full-time and would help create the Milestone comics universe at DC. Milestone was a separate line that featured minority heroes such as Static, Hardware, and Icon. In recent years, McDuffie began writing for cartoons as well, including a cartoon adaptation of his Static character, Static Shock.

DVD Review: Ben 10 Alien Force, Vol. 8

Ben 10 Alien Force, Vol. 8

DVD

Featuring the voices of Wil Wheaton, John Dimaggio, Yuri Lowenthal

Cartoon Network

Release Date: August 24, 2010

If I could name this volume of Ben 10: Alien Force, I would call it “The Rogue Gallery,” since the five episodes in this volume featured villains from Ben Tennyson’s past. For those not familiar with the cartoon, Ben Tennyson is no ordinary teenager. Not only is he a part of a secret intergalactic police group known as the Plumbers, but he is also the sole bearer of the Omnitrix, a device that allows him to transform into various alien beings. With Gwen, his cousin and fellow Plumber, and her love interest Kevin, they embark on adventures filled with aliens, bounty hunters, and spell casters.

I have reviewed my fair share of Ben 10 episodes and I am happy to report that these episodes are just as good as the previous.

First Watch: 'Ben 10: Ultimate Alien'

  • Filmology
Here's a show I would have loved as a kid. While watching Cartoon Network's Ben 10: Ultimate Alien, one can practically taste the "sweet" cereal being spooned into their mouth... even though the show airs Sunday nights. And the Ben 10 story is a sweet one indeed. The series, basically about a boy who gets an alien device (the Omnitrix) attached to his arm that allows him to turn into various alien creatures, first debuted in 2005 as simply Ben 10. 2008 saw the mutation of Ben 10 into Ben 10: Alien Force, set five years later, and featuring more mature characters and darker, more complex plots. And yet again, in 2010, Ben 10: Ultimate Alien was born.
