Last year’s cancellation of the television series Hannibal, starring Mads Mikkelsen as the famed cannibal Hannibal Lecter and Hugh Dancy as FBI agent Will Graham, upset many people. I reviewed all of Hannibal’s final season and was upset at its cancellation, even if its finale did offer as much closure as it possibly could.
Since its conclusion, various actors and crew involved in the show have spoken up about when they might be able to do a continuation of some kind and showrunner Bryan Fuller has just stated when might be a good time for discussions to start up again.
At the Saturn Awards, Fuller told Collider “August 2017 is when we can actually start talking about it. That’s when we would have to see what the rights are for the character and for the story and see who’s interested and how we get it done. I have the story, »

Despite the release of a very cool teaser trailer, there’s still an awful lot we don’t know about Doctor Strange. The biggest mystery is who the villain will be, especially as the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s version of Baron Mordo appears to be an ally to The Ancient One and the Sorcerer Supreme.
We do, of course, know that Mads Mikkelsen is playing a bad guy, but his identity has remained a mystery…well, until now that is. A description for a wave of Diamond Select Doctor Strange minimates offers up character names for not only Rachel McAdams’ character, but also those being played by Mikkelsen and Zara Phythian.

If this column wasn’t called “Marvelous Da7e,” believe me, we’d be talking about Justice League. Before we get to Marvel Cinematic Universe news, I should let you know that I’ve almost completely shifted my comic book reading over to DC. What the DC heroes are going through in Rebirth has been a ton of fun these past few weeks (and so many issues, I worry about burnout already)! If the movies can pivot to making me feel that, Justice League will be a delight. I’ll get to see Batman and Flash team up to fight Parademons, so...whatever, that sounds great.
Onto our regularly scheduled programming...

...accompanying him to 'Kamar-Taj' in Tibet to abduct the 'Ancient One'.

...while Kaecilius hires a group of smugglers to search for Strange.

As you probably already know, licensed comic book movie toys are not always the best source of information when it comes to what we end up seeing on the big-screen. However, a more plausible reveal has emerged for the next Marvel Cinematic Universe installment. According to Heroic Hollywood, the following is a description of (and a first look at) the first wave of Diamond Select’s Doctor Strange minimates, and it seems to confirm not only who Rachel McAdams will be playing in the Marvel adaptation, but also the mystery villainous characters to be played by Mads Mikkelsen and British martial artist/actress Zara Phythian.

In May, Disney made the decision to cancel its toys-to-life game Disney Infinity - a business decision set to cost the firm millions. Launched in 2013 as a rival to Activision's Skylanders, Disney Infinity's combination of action figures and digital toy box made it a hit at first, though dwindling sales mean that the Finding Dory playset, out this month, will be the series' last.
"After a thorough evaluation, we have modified our approach to console gaming and will transition exclusively to a licensing model," boss James Pitaro said at the time. "This shift in strategy means we will cease production of Disney Infinity, where the lack of growth in the toys-to-life market, coupled with high development costs, has created a challenging business model."

Marvel's official posters for Doctor Strange have been pretty impressive so far - but fan artist and friend of the site Rob Csiki has given the studio a run for their money here. The talented geek designer has put together some of his best work to date, depicting Benedict Cumberbatch's spellbinding Sorcerer Supreme. The piece, titled 'Open Your Mind' is fittingly as trippy as it is beautiful - a trait comic book fans can hopefully look forward to seeing in Scott Derrickson's big screen adaptation this fall. Csiki's vibrant style may be familiar to some of you, as we've featured plenty of his work here in the past. He's attracted praise from the likes of Peyton Reed, James Gunn and even Hellboy himself, Ron Perlman. If you're a fan of his art, be sure to check out his new site over at Chicky Geek Studio.

At last year's Comic-Con, the Funko Pop Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice double pack containing the Dark Knight and Man of Steel was the most in demand item, and chances are that the Sorcerer Supreme will be next to go up on eBay for a ridiculous price in the days and weeks which follow the San Diego based event. While this figure will eventually reach stores, that will be months from now. Doctor Strange follows the story of neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions. Set for release on November 4th the cast also includes Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg, Mads Mikkelsen, and Tilda Swinton. With any luck, the new trailer is going to be released to coincide with this event next month »
