Here It Is: Your First Exciting Look at Gal Gadot and Chris Pine in Wonder Woman 1984
More and more details continue to come out about the Wonder Woman sequel. Not only did Patty Jenkins confirm the title will be Wonder Woman 1984 on Twitter, but she also revealed Chris Pine's character, Steve Trevor, is alive and well. Although the second installment isn't out until Nov. 1, 2019, fans have gotten a small taste of what's to come thanks to two exciting photos.

One look features Pine looking as heroic as ever in '80s gear, while the other is of Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot, bathed in technicolor as she stands in front of a series of TV screens. The latter photo gives more hints about the time period, because on the middle left TV screen, you can see Larry Hagman in his prime on the hit '80s soap opera Dallas. Until more are released, we will just have to settle with the photos ahead.

‘This Is Us’ would be first show to score back-to-back double Best Drama Actor Emmy nominations in 19 years

‘This Is Us’ would be first show to score back-to-back double Best Drama Actor Emmy nominations in 19 years
This Is Us” pulled off a surprise last year when both Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia made the Best Drama Actor Emmy lineup. They were just the fifth pair of co-stars this century to nab nominations. None of the other four duos accomplished it again — one pair, “True Detective”’s Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey in 2014, was a one-and-done deal — so if Brown and Ventimiglia make the cut again, they’d be the first co-stars to go back-to-back in the category since 1999.

The last twosome to score multiple Best Drama Actor nominations together were “NYPD Blue” stars Dennis Franz and Jimmy Smits, who went on a five-year streak from 1995 to 1999, with Franz winning three times and Smits going 0-5. Franz won his first Emmy for the cop drama in 1994 against his original partner in crime, David Caruso.

'Dallas' at 40: How the Primetime Soap Paved the Way for Peak TV

Forty years ago this week, Dallas premiered on CBS – and changed TV history forever. At a time when network television was staid and dull, this Lone Star Peyton Place came on as a totally shameless melodrama full of sex, money, bad blood, family feuds, cowboy hats and shoulder pads – the first, best and most splendidly ridiculous of the prime-time soaps. It spun the saga of the corrupt Ewing family and their Texas oil empire, as they wheeled and dealed through bedrooms and boardrooms, running from 1978 to 1991. And what a cast

Carissa's Corner: We Need to Talk about Our Reboot Problem

Before I launch into the main topic of this Carissa's Corner, I have a specific audience who needs to listen up.

Enough whining about the glory days of Criminal Minds with Hotch and Morgan. You guys are enough to drive a person to drink. The ship has sailed.

If you want characters to continually return and rehash old storylines, there are still soap operas on the air and they will never stop appealing to those of you who want to cry in your coffee.

There are also a plethora of comics shows airing willing to beat more dead horses than ever a horse has been seen in any comic, and hallelujah, you can watch reboots for even more miserable storylines that won't stay dead.

Speaking of reboots and revivals, we need to talk about them.
