Star Wars Rebels Spark of Rebellion

6:00 PM, Wednesday, August 20th, 2014 - Posted by John Wilson

The animated one-hour movie Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion, which will lead into the upcoming animated series, will premiere online Sept. 29 to verified users on WATCHDisneyXD.com and the WATCH Disney XD app. The movie's television debut will follow Oct. 3 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Disney Channel, with the series set to begin Oct. 13 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

The television movie screened last month at Comic-Con International in San Diego to a select group of fans and press, garnering positive reviews for its classic Star Wars look and feel.

Set between Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope, the story explores the beginnings of the rebellion against the Empire through the eyes of the motley but clever crew of the starship Ghost: cowboy Jedi Kanan, ace pilot Hera, street-smart teenager Ezra, the "muscle" Zeb, warrior firebrand Sabine, and cantankerous old astromech droid Chopper.

Star Wars Rebels is created by Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sherlock Holmes) and Carrie Beck. The Lucasfilm Animation production is executive produced by Filoni and Kinberg as well as Greg Weisman (Gargoyles).

The voice cast includes Freddie Prinze Jr. as Kanan, Vanessa Marshall as Hera, Steve Blum as Zeb, Tiya Sircar as Sabine, Taylor Gray as Ezra, David Oyelowo as Agent Kallus and Jason Isaacs as the Inquisitor.

Adrianne Palicki is Set to Guest-Star as Mockingbird on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

3:00 PM, Tuesday, August 19th, 2014 - Posted by Brant Fowler

We learned at San Diego Comic-Con that Bobbi Morse, aka Mockingbird would be showing up in Season 2 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Now, thanks to The Hollywood Reporter, we know who will play the role of the longtime love interest of Hawkeye (in the comics, not the movies... yet.)

Adrianne Palicki of Friday Night Lights fame will be taking up the role of Morse in a guest-starring part in the fifth episode of Season 2 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. with potential to return. In this episode, she will be popping in as a possible ally to Coulson and his team.

In the comics, Bobbi Morse does have connections with S.H.I.E.L.D. being a full agent herself for a time. Later, she would re-debut as Mockingbird and eventually land herself on the Avengers.

Palicki was at one time cast to play Wonder Woman in the NBC pilot that was not picked up. She also played Lady Jaye in G.I. Joe Retaliation, but FNL is still her standout role to date.

She joins a growing cast for Season 2 that includes Kyle MacLachlan as Skye's (Chloe Bennet) father, Reed Diamond as Hydra villain Daniel Whitehall, aka Kraken, Lucy Lawless as S.H.I.E.L.D. veteran Isabelle Hartly, Nick Blood as a mercenary that Coulson reaches out to for assistance, Simon Kassianides as Bakshi, and Henry Simmons as Agent Alphonso "Mac" Mackenzie.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns on September 23rd at 9pm. Est on ABC.

2:00 PM, Monday, August 18th, 2014 - Posted by John Wilson

Eddie Izzard and Noah Taylor have joined Sony PlayStation Network's original series "Powers," based on the graphic novel by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming.

The series follows two homicide detectives who are assigned to solving cases involving people with superhuman abilities, known as Powers.

Izzard, who has been making regular appearances on NBC's "Hannibal," will play the primary Power, Wolfe, incarcerated for decades in order to keep his abilities in check.

Taylor, most recently seen in "Edge of Tomorrow," will play criminal mastermind Johnny Royalle, who runs the Here and Gone Club.

The cast also includes Susan Heyward, Olesya Rulin, Max Fowler and Adam Godley.

David Slade will direct the first two episodes of "Powers," written by Charlie Huston. Series is PlayStation Networks' first foray into original programming as a way to compete with the likes of Netflix and Amazon. It ordered 10 episodes of the show in March that Sony Pictures Television will produce.

Show had originally been in development at FX since 2011.

"Powers" is expected to launch on Sony's PlayStation platforms in December.

Adam McKay and Will Ferrell to Produce Henchmen

9:00 AM, Monday, August 18th, 2014 - Posted by John Wilson

Gary Sanchez Prods' Adam McKay, Will Ferrell and Chris Henchy will become creative collaborators and exec producers on Henchmen, a feature-length adaptation of the SIGGRAPH 2014 short Henchmen: Ill Suited, from Bron Studios. The production is targeting a 2016 debut.

The story line starts with a variant of the Sorceror's Apprentice story line. In this case, a dreamy janitor working in the bad guy museum of Supervillain City ends up inside a somewhat out-of-control super-powered space suit, and causes all kinds of mayhem. The synopsis for the feature-length adaptation suggests there will still be a hapless young twerp in a super suit, but will also focus on a "fallen henchman" named Hank overseeing a "motley crew of blue-collar workers in the Union of Evil." The "risk-nothing" sentiments of Hank are challenged when he must become a hero and rescue the kid in the suit and the missing woman he loves. Ill Suited is premiering this week at the big computer graphics and animation convention, SIGGRAPH 2014, being held in Vancouver.

Henchmen reteams the Sanchez crew with British Columbia-based Bron, which previously worked with Sanchez on Welcome To Me, starring Kristen Wiig and set to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in a few weeks.

Jason Cloth of Creative Wealth Media Finance, one of the film's main backers, will also exec produce. Bron's Aaron L. Gilbert and Luke Carroll are producing. Adam Wood, who wrote and directed Ill Suited, is directing. Dennis McNicholas (Saturday Night Live, Garfunkel and Oates, Go On) is completing a script re-write.

Zack Synder Defends Aquaman on Local Radio

9:00 AM, Monday, August 11th, 2014 - Posted by John Wilson

Zack Snyder knows that with great power comes great responsibility.

That's why the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director has been very careful not to reveal too many secrets about the Justice League-oriented flick, currently filming in Detroit. But while listening to local radio station 97.1 on his way to work one day, the director decided to call in to clear up some of the Aquaman rumors that have been swimming around the film.

At first, hosts Stoney and Bill weren't completely sure if "Zack" calling from his cell phone was Mr. Snyder or not. Still, the director went on to defend and potentially tease the inclusion of Aquaman. He didn't confirm whether or not the rumored Jason Momoa would be playing the role, but said the superhero has some "cool abilities" and has the strength to be able to "cut the flesh of Superman if they came in contact."

Wait—so does that mean they do come in contact then? "It's not to say that he's in the movie or anything like that," Snyder tried to clarify. "But he has the potential to be bad ass." Listen to the segment here.

Warner Bros. has set a March 25, 2016 release date for the Ben Affleck/Henry Cavill/maybe Jason Momoa film.

Sony Eyeing a Black Cat Movie for 2017.

4:00 PM, Monday, August 4th, 2014 - Posted by Brant Fowler

Sony is looking to making a Black Cat movie after rumors surfaced several months ago. So Spidey rival and sometimes love interest Felicia Hardy will be making her way to the big screen possibly in 2017. The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was recently pushed back to 2018 with a Sinister Six film coming in November of 2016. So Sony is looking to target 2017 with Black Cat and a Venom movie (tentatively called Venom/Carnage) for the year between the two other films.

With female superheroes being such a hot topic with fans clamouring for some to hit the silver screen, it's a smart move on Sony's part to take the plunge. We know of rumors from Marvel Studios of a Black Widow film in the works, and Jessica Jones coming to Netflix, so it's not out of the realm of possibility to see Sony and even Fox focusing on female heroes for a change.

Felicia Hardy is the daughter of a world-renowned cat burglar. After suffering a traumatic event as a college freshman, she trained herself in various fighting styles and acrobatics and, after deciding to follow in her father's footsteps, adopted her costumed identity as the Black Cat. She was ranked 27th in Comics Buyer's Guide's 100 Sexiest Women in Comics list.

The character makes her cinematic debut as Felicia, Harry Osborn's assistant, in the 2014 film The Amazing Spider-Man 2, portrayed by actress Felicity Jones.

Guardians of the Galaxy's James Gunn Talks Sequel

8:00 PM, Friday, August 1st, 2014 - Posted by John Wilson

We're only now getting a chance to check out Marvel's space epic Guardians of the Galaxy this weekend, but director James Gunn is already brainstorming plans for the sequel. So, where to, next?

Gunn chatted with Film Divider about some story lines and characters he didn't get to dig into with the first film, and it sounds like he already has a ton of ideas kicking around for the sequel coming in 2017. From deeper alien races from the comic canon, to Yondu and Nebula, we can expect the galactic side of the Marvel universe to get a whole lot deeper.

Here are the choice excerpts:

"I know a lot of where I want to go. I have a lot of ideas for stories and characters that are going to appear, and there are documents written up, that some people have, about Peter Quill's father and his relationship, a lot of stuff about Yondu and a lot of stuff about Drax that nobody knows. There are a lot of things that are part of the overall schematic that already exist, not to mention a lot of stuff about all of the cultures. There's a lot of stuff about Xandarian and Kree culture that I've written down or I have in my head, as well as Krylorians and Ravagers ...

Kevin Feige has stuff. I wrote up a lot. He knows all the stuff and if I died tomorrow they could go make a movie. They could write the story of Peter Quill's father and it would all be there. I think Yondu is a very important character, a really important character in this universe, and I think Nebula is really important too and so I think we'll see more of both of those characters."

Marvel was wise to capitalize on the opening week buzz (and insanely great reviews) and announce the Guardians sequel this past weekend at San Diego Comic-Con. It's exciting to see the film universe head into the galactic corner, and we can't wait to see where Gunn will take it next.

As for the actual storyline? If he sticks to the Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning comic run that inspired the film, there are a few awesome arcs that could be mined for one heck of a film. A weird film, probably, but Gunn is already embracing the weird — that's the fun thing about being on the other side of the galaxy.

Guardians of the Galaxy opens Friday, and Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is set for July 28, 2017.
