More images from the set of The Wolverine have shown up, and we’ve got those for you after the jump.
Major Spoilers has been on top of our game when it comes to getting you all the latest and greatest news regarding Fox’s upcoming animated show based on the Axe Cop comic, and here we are again to show you the newest footage Fox has put together. Keith wrote in asking Axe Cop if he would ever consider being President. Awesome follows.
Grumblings have been heard throughout Hollywood about a Fantastic Four reboot for months with pieces and tid-bits of information becoming right and wrong all along the way. With a director attached in July, Fox has officially announced a release date and they sure have picked an interesting date. Take the jump for the info.
Axe Cop has been a much talked about book this past year and rightfully so. With a brother comedy tag-team heading a book that sent Matthew into a giggle frenzy when it was reviewed on the Major Spoilers Podcast it is no surprise that a network already known for its outrageous cartoon shows would give Axe Cop a shot. Take the jump to see the first animated test reel.
Fox has announced it is ordering one final season of Fringe for the fall.
FX is currently working on a pilot for Powers, the Brian Michael Bendis, Michael Avon Oeming series focusing on Christian Walker and his investigations on crimes involving superheroes. The network has announced (and many sources have picked up on) that Bailee Madison will play the young Calista, “an otherworldly young girl raised by her stepdad Eagle, a man with powers. When Eagle’s wife is murdered and he goes on the lam, Calista comes to stay with Walker and develops a bond with him.”
I really like that FX is getting involved with this project. If they do Powers like they did The Shield and Rescue Me, I think the show will be a huge hit for the network.
Deadline is reporting that Sarah Bolger has joined the cast of Fox’s Locke & Key. The actress will play Kinsey Locke, the daughter of single mother Nina Locke, who have moved to Lovecraft Massachusetts after surviving a brutal attack by a crazed killer. While at the house, the Locke kids begin to find keys that unleash great power.
Fox has renewed Fringe for another 22-episode season.Â Interestingly, it is the number one new show among the demographic the show is targeted toward.
“‘Fringe’ proved to be a notable addition to our schedule all season, and it really has fans buzzing as it builds to a fantastic season finale,” said Kevin Reilly, president of entertainment at Fox. “J.J. and the whole Bad Robot team have been phenomenal partners, and we look forward to years of making great television with them.”
It was a slow burn getting into the show, and there were a couple of weeks early on, where I thought this was one of the worst shows out there.Â However, after about four weeks, the show started to click as the X-Files vibe settled in and the show improved.
Stories of production problems have been plaguing Joss Whedon’s new Dollhouse series, to the point many were wondering if the show would ever see the light of day on Fox.Â Not only will it air, Fox has set the date for January, and has released a trailer to boot.
DOLLHOUSE focuses on a secret organization that employs “Actives” — a group of operatives who have their memories and personalities wiped clean so they can be imprinted with new ones, allowing them to take on various missions for hire. DOLLHOUSE airs Mondays (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) this January on FOX.
Shirley Manson, the lead singer for Garbage, has been cast as recurring character Catherine Weaver in Fox’s second season of Sarah Connor Chronicles.
The Weaver character is described as the CEO of a “cutting edge technology company”, which I hope means high-tech hardware and not Web 2.0 startup vying for attention from Michael Arrington.
I have yet to watch a single episode of the series starring Lena Headey as Sarah Connor, Thomas Dekker as John Connor, and Summer Glau as terminator Cameron Phillips. Is it good, bad, or just something to sit back and fill the hour between other network shows?
For those who dug The Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, but thought the season was just too short, rejoicing is in order as Fox has announced plans to continue the series for a second season.
The series could also get an early back-nine order, Reilly said. Next May, Fox will release the fourth “Terminator” film which could make for some ideal corporate synegy should the TV series survive the fall. Reilly said he’s already spoken to the film’s direct McG about cross-promotional possibilities.
For those who also like NBC’s Heroes, Fox did indicate the SCC would more than likely get a new time slot so as not to compete with the other show.
Fanboys and fangirls get ready to set your fun-meter to laughgasmic. Futurama is coming back.
