Krypton actor Blake Ritson talks Brainiac role in the DC series

Yesterday we got our first look at the classic Superman villain Brainiac as he’ll appear in Syfy’s upcoming prequel series Krypton, and now actor Blake Ritson (Da Vinci’s Demons) has been speaking to USA Today about his role in the latest DC TV show.

“I’ve played characters who’ve objectively committed monstrous actions, but feel entirely justified, as they’ve acted from a misplaced sense of a noble cause,” said Ritson. “Generally speaking, people cast themselves as the hero in their own narrative. Yes, he traverses the universe in a gigantic skull ship, ripping cities out of planets, miniaturizing them and placing them on board. But he does so in the spirit of conservation. In his mind, he’s committed to the ultimate philanthropic act: saving all of creation. In many ways, it’s analogous to Noah plucking out two of every animal to ensure their survival,

What's at Stake Financially in Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux's Split?
Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are parting ways after two and a half years of marriage and nearly seven years as a couple, leaving both actors with the eventual task of splitting up their assets.

Both stars have made a considerable amount of money both before and during their marriage, and it remains unclear if they had a prenuptial agreement in place. But as with most high-profile celebrity divorces, it is likely that their respective business managers will handle settlement negotiations.

Aniston has remained one of the highest paid actresses in the world since their marriage in 2015. She made $16.5 million during their first year together,

Game of Thrones’ Hannah Waddingham cast as mad Kryptonian scientist Jax-Ur in Krypton

The Superman prequel series Krypton has just gained an additional cast member. Hannah Waddingham, who played Septa Unella (otherwise known as the Shame Nun) in Game of Thrones, has been cast as Jax-Ur, one of Krypton’s most prominent yet mad scientists.

Jax-Ur was one of Krypton’s most renowned scientists. In the comics, Jax-Ur experimented with a nuclear-level weapon to use against Krypton’s government, but it failed and resulted in the destruction of Wegthor, one of Krypton’s moons. For this, he was tried, convicted and sentenced to the Phantom Zone for eternity.

In a change from the comics, Jax-Ur will be a woman instead of a man and is determined to bring radical change to Krypton as leader of the underground terrorist organization, Black Zero.

Krypton takes place 100 years before the destruction of Superman’s home planet, following the exploits of his grandfather Seg-El, who is trying

David S. Goyer and Geoff Johns tease Green Lantern Corps and Omega Men for Krypton

Earlier this week Syfy unveiled the first trailer for Krypton, DC’s upcoming Superman prequel series, which takes place on Kal-El’s home planet, albeit two generations prior to its destruction.

As we saw in the trailer, the series also features the character of Adam Strange, and according to creator David S. Goyer and DC’s Geoff Johns, the show won’t be restricted solely to Superman characters, and could eventually feature appearances from the likes of the Green Lantern Corps and Omega Men.

“The deal with the show is it’s kind of this gateway into the DC science fiction universe. Because also the Phantom Zone figures into this show, it means we can delve into other times and planets eventually. Even the inclusion of Adam Strange, that should tip you off that it’s not just going to be on Krypton,” said Goyer at the Television Critics Association press tour,

Superman prequel series Krypton gets a premiere date and new image

DC is set to go all the way back to the home world of Superman in Syfy’s upcoming drama series Krypton, and it has been announced today that the new show will premiere on March 21st, 2018.

Krypton will take place “two generations before the destruction of Superman’s home planet,” and will follow Kal-El’s grandfather, Seg-El, as he attempts to bring order to his house, as well as his planet.

In addition to the premiere reveal, Syfy has also released a new image which features Game of Thrones actor Ian McElhinney (Ser Barristan Selmy) as the head of the House of El, who as you can see, is wearing some very familiar colours. The image also gives us a good first look at some of the other costumes that will be found on Krypton, as well as featuring other members of the House of El all donning the iconic S.

The DC Series Krypton Gets a Premiere Date and New Synopsis That Reveals a Time Travel Plot Device

Just last week we were treated to a new promo spot for DC's upcoming SyFy series Krypton. I'm actually kind of excited about this series because it deals with Kal-El's family history on the planet Krypton. This is an aspect of the Superman mythology that we've never really seen played with before.

Today we've learned from KryptonSite that the series will premiere in March of 2018 and they also revealed a new synopsis that has been released, and what's interesting about it is that it hints at a time travel plot device:

"Set two generations before the destruction of Superman’s home planet, Krypton follows Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), the legendary Man of Steel’s grandfather — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed. With Krypton’s leadership in disarray, Seg-El encounters Earthly time-traveler Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos) who warns he’s under the clock to save his beloved world from chaos.

Syfy Narrows Krypton Premiere Window To March 2018 As New Synopsis Emerges

It’s been a long time coming, but Syfy has finally narrowed Krypton‘s premiere window to March of 2018.

At least, that’s according to a report unearthed by KryptonSite (with a tip of the hat to ComicBook.com). Sadly, there’s no mention of a concrete premiere date just yet, but we do have a new and indeed extended synopsis for you to peruse, which tees up a superheroic family drama anchored by Cameron Cuffe as Seg-El, Kal-El’s grandfather.

If you’ve been keeping tracking of Krypton‘s prolonged development cycle, you’ll know that the freshman drama has been angled as a prequel series, one that will seemingly “branch time and space.” There’s also a new interpretation of Brainiac to look forward to, considering Blake Ritson has been cast as the “parasitic, hyper-advanced alien android of immense intelligence.”

Furthermore, there’s going to be an element

‘Stronger’ Review

Stars: Jake Gyllenhaal, Tatiana Maslany, Miranda Richardson, Clancy Brown, Lenny Clarke | Written by John Pollono, Jeff Bauman | Directed by David Gordon Green

David Gordon Green drifts yet further from his Pineapple Express and Your Highness frat comedy legacy with this safe and reverent adaptation of the true-life story of Jeff Bauman, a young Bostonian who lost his legs in the marathon bombing of 2013. You may not be familiar with the tale, but the film’s title will give you an idea of the direction of travel.

Excitement builds for the big race. Jeff (Jake Gyllenhaal) heads to the finish line to cheer his on-off girlfriend, Erin (Tatiana Maslany). Suddenly, two bombs explode, maiming the crowd with a rain of shrapnel. Jeff loses his legs. With the help of his family and Erin, Jeff begins his recovery: the traumatic aftermath, the recovery of memories, and the gradual move toward prosthetics.

It’s an all-American story,

Notes on Streaming: Vice Principals, David Gordon Green and Comic Horror

David Gordon Green directed the series finales of both HBO's Vice Principals and Amazon's Red Oaks, as well as the recent theatrical feature Stronger, thus reinforcing the notion that he refuses to be pinned down as a director. That may be the best preparation possible for his upcoming new version of Halloween. He has made features that are all over the map, starting with the delicately-crafted George Washington (2000), the relatively rambunctious All the Real Girls (2003), and then the impressive Undertow (2004) and Snow Angels (2007). His next three films, the comic trio of Pineapple Express (2008), Your Highness (2011), and, particularly, The Sitter (2011), felt like colossal wastes of his talent at the time. In retrospect, and considering the films and TV shows...

‘High Fantasy’ Is An Artistic & Intimate Body Swap Drama [Tiff Review]

If you take the title of Jenna Bass’s new film, “High Fantasy,” at face value, you’ll probably picture a stoner comedy-cum-genre flick, a’la “Your Highness,” in which unlikely heroes are pitted against mythical dangers while stricken with a case of the stoned giggly-fits. To an extent, this characterization is fair: Bass does assemble of diverse troupe of characters, and she does set them on a quest of sorts, and she does incorporate a fantasy element in their travels after they all get roasted on weed, but the fundamental conflicts of “High Fantasy” are rooted in the real world, and those conflicts make the film feel all too familiar.

‘Stronger’ Review: Jake Gyllenhaal Is Riveting in David Gordon Green’s Boston Marathon Bombing Biopic — Tiff
For fans of David Gordon Green’s more dramatic leanings — think his earlier films like “George Washington” and “All the Real Girls,” less the “Your Highness” and “The Sitter” years — his fact-based “Stronger” offers not precisely a return to form, but a return to his ability to find great meaning in world-weary emotions. His most grounded film yet and his first attempt to dramatizing a true story, “Stronger” takes an unvarnished tone to the kind of heartstring-pulling biopic that other directors might simply play for emotional fireworks, turning in a far more nuanced and satisfying experience in the process. Bolstered by sterling turns from stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Tatiana Maslany, and Miranda Richardson, the film is a showcase for what Green has always been able to do so well, and what his actors continue to excel at.

Based on the autobiography of Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman (penned alongside author Bret Witter,

Thor Gets Barbaric in Colorful New Ragnarok Character Posters
Arnold Schwarzenegger has been teasing us with a King Conan movie for years now. We haven't really had a great swords and dragons fantasy epic on the big screen, with Danny McBride's Your Highness being the exception. Game of Thrones has done a good job keeping that fire alive on the small screen. But now Thor has arrived to give us all his best Barbarian impression with a brand new character poster. And it's jaw-dropping.

The signature look comes courtesy of Thor's new sword. As anyone who's watched the record breaking trailer will tell you, The God of Thunder's precious hammer Mj&#246lnir gets obliterated by Hela in the early moments of Thor: Ragnarok. To help cope, he adopts a sword, which you can see in all it's full glory here. And dang, does Chris Hemsworth give good Barbarian.

Don't worry, Hulk is here too, representing his
