BBC Fantasy The Fades Promo
BBC already has a couple of U.S. hits with Doctor Who and Sherlock, and now the network is venturing into supernatural territory with The Fades, but you’ll notice after viewing the trailer that this isn’t your normal spin on people with otherworldly powers.
17-year-old Paul (Iain De Caestecker) just wants to enjoy his geeky life, and maybe one day get a date with a girl, but destiny has other plans for him. He thought things were rough when he was having apocalyptic dreams but now his out-of-this-world visions are turning out to be real and it’s up to him to defend the world against Fades, ghosts and spirits that are trapped in our realm… and none of these ghosts have anything in common with Casper.
The new trailer, shared by The Hollywood Reporter, reveals that while Paul has the glowing hands »

Julie Benz has been dead for a couple years now – well, to a lot of people who follow “Dexter” religiously.

In writer-director Matthew Leutwyler’s new film, “Answers To Nothing,” she plays Frankie, a hard-charging Los Angeles police investigator working to solve a case involving a missing little girl. ShockYa recently had a chance to sit down and talk to Benz one-on-one, about “Answers To Nothing” and the extremely short preparation time she had for the project »

Presenting our weekly round-up of the biggest news stories from the world of movie superheroes…
Despite the filming stage of The Dark Knight Rises drawing to a close a couple of weeks back, the hype surrounding Christopher Nolan’s third and final Batman feature shows no sign of slowing down. Indeed, if the past week is anything to go by, God only knows what things will be like in the run up to the film’s release next July. The cause of all this excitement was of course Empire’s first official look at the $250m blockbuster, featuring several new images of Batman and Bane, along with quotes from stars Christian Bale and Tom Hardy, in addition to some exciting information about the film direct from Nolan himself. The biggest talking point was the news that The Dark Knight Rises will pick up eight years on from The Dark Knight, »
Before the interview, however, Heidi and "Extra's" Maria Menounos were surprised by "No Ordinary Family" star Michael Chiklis, who took the mic and said, "When you've got a chance to speak to Heidi Klum, you just jump right in, right? Hi, how are you?"
The man behind "No Ordinary Family" is taking another stab at the genre, this time looking at actual comic books for his new superhero. Greg Berlanti and Warner Horizon Television are planning to bring "Booster Gold" to Syfy. Booster Gold is not exactly one of the more popular comic characters. He was created in 1986 for DC Comics by Dan Jurgens, a popular inker and writer who was probably best known for his involvement in the "Death of Superman" comic book storyline in the early 1990s. Booster Gold has a unique introduction into the superhero world. While others have been pushed to do good (or, if you're a super villain, evil), Gold instead comes from the future, and uses his knowledge of the future to become a hero. While other superheroes like Batman might like to stay in the shadows, »
One of DC Comics’ more obscure characters might be coming to the small screen. Revealed by The Hollywood Reporter, cable channel Syfy has commissioned a one hour pilot based on the time traveling superhero Booster Gold.
Created by Dan Jurgens in 1986, Booster is a failed sport star from the 25th Century who steals a time machine and travels back to the past to start a new life. Using advanced technology, and helped by security robot Skeets, he becomes a superhero, his knowledge of future events helping his cause. The twist is, though, the only thing he is interested in is becoming rich and famous.
A side character for many years, he enjoyed a surge in popularity when he was made a main member of Keith Giffen’s Justice League. It was during this era he paired with Blue Beetle, the friendship becoming a favorite among fans. After the cancellation of Justice League International, »

After a well-received appearance in the final season of WB’s seminal superhero series Smallville, the popular DC character Booster Gold is returning to the small screen in his own TV show for the Syfy channel.
The series is being headed up by Greg Berlanti’s production company, Berlanti Productions. Comic book fans might recall that Greg Berlanti is no stranger to the DC Universe. He created the superhero family drama No Ordinary Family and also wrote and produced Green Lantern (though you shouldn’t hold that against him). Comic book and TV scribe Andrew Kreisberg, who has written for Fringe, has signed on to write the pilot episode of the show.
Having his own TV show w0uld be a fitting development for Booster Gold, whose gimmick involves being a fame-hungry time traveler who uses future technology to become a modern-day ...

While fairytales are all the rage on TV right now with Once Upon a Time and Grimm hitting networks, comic books are still alive and kicking. THR has word that SyFy has ordered a pilot script for a one-hour drama series adaptation of the DC Comics franchise Booster Gold. The series will be brought to life by Greg Berlanti, the man who has had plenty of experience with superheroes as of late with ABC's decent but canned No Ordinary Family and Warner Bros. big screen take on Green Lantern this past summer. Andrew Kreisberg (Fringe) will write the script and executive produce the potential series which will follow a washed-up athlete from the future who travels back to the present in hopes of becoming the greatest super hero of all time. Instead of chasing criminals, however, his main priority is chasing fame and money. But Booster Gold discovers that being »

He probably saw this coming: a television series may be in the near future for Booster Gold. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Syfy network has ordered a pilot script based on the DC Comic superhero.
Booster's just the latest DC Comics hero looking to break out onto the small screen. In late August, news came down the line that executives at CW had begun developing a series based on Deadman with Eric Kripke at the helm. Weeks later, The Spectre haunted headlines when the world learned that Fox wanted to develop a series with that character and Brandon Camp writing.

In a bid to create a perfect superhero television show, Syfy is looking to the future.
More specifically, they’re looking to time-travelling DC Comics hero Booster Gold, ordering a pilot script based off of the fame-hungry hero from the future. The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop, reporting that Greg Berlanti (The Green Lantern, No Ordinary Family) will be an executive producer on the project and Andrew Kreisberg (Fringe) will write the pilot script.
Booster Gold, aka Michael Jon Carter, starts out as a fame and money-hungry college football star from the future who goes back in time to the modern day to become a world-renowned superhero. Although he originally uses his skills and knowledge of coming events to fix crises so he can bask in popularity and lucrative endorsement deals, Gold eventually becomes a better person dedicated to real heroics.

Australian actor Lachlan Buchanan plays Duncan, who has some history with Alison . Given the mysterious nature of the show, we've been sworn to secrecy as to what we watched him film on set, but we will tell you this: every time we think we've got Alison Dilaurentis figured out, a boy from her past appears to reveal a shocking twist. Duncan is no different.
"They make such an effort to keep things mysterious," Lachlan told us as we hung out in his trailer, waiting for him to be called back to set. "I think Duncan's trustworthy at this point, »

The death of Vincent Nigel-Murray last season was a devastating loss for the team at the Jeffersonian, but they’re on their way to filling the void with the addition of new squintern Finn Abernathy, who makes his debut on this Thursday’s episode.
Finn, who sports what Kleintank calls a “Larry the Cable Guy” accent, certainly makes a strong impression on the team, especially with Hodgins — but that’s not necessarily a good thing. »
