Dynamite proudly announces a licensing partnership with NBCUniversal Television Consumer Products that will bring back one of the biggest primetime successes of the past decade, the superhuman drama Heroes. Working with Dynamite for the first time, popular writer Cullen Bunn (of Marvel’s Fearless Defenders and Deadpool) will build upon open-ended storylines of the diverse Heroes cast in a completely unexpected way.
Well, you’ve known that for a while now, haven’t you? The elder Petrelli brother had his throat slit at the end of last season by Sylar, and actor Adrian Pasdar continued to appear on the show as Sylar took on his appearance.
TV Guide has confirmed that Adrian Pasdar has been official released from the show since Nathan was last seen shot and buried in a hole in the ground.
Of course Heroes is supposed to be a super hero show, and we’ve all seen how permanent deaths are in comics.
To start off this review, Iâ€™m going to be perfectly honest with you all: while I have watched every episode of Heroesâ€™ 3+ seasons, bought the graphic novels, and grown attached to a few of the characters, I havenâ€™t been 100% for the show. Like many of you (Iâ€™m assuming), I was about to give out on the show halfway through the showâ€™s second season. At the half season break last year, I stopped recording the show. I donâ€™t know. It stopped connecting with me I guess. Despite all this, I stuck with Heroes, more on the principle need to see a superhero show that doesnâ€™t start with â€œSmallâ€ or end with â€œVilleâ€ succeed. Iâ€™ve been there through all the ups and downs, which, to be honest makes the Alps look like a dirt mound. With the series starting up with a kind of â€œclean slate,â€ I decided to let go of my past opinions of Heroes, and look at this show with a fresh eye. Hopefully, this season can recapture that same spark from its inaugural season, but only time will tell.
I can’t remember if I watched the end of the last season of Heroes, or if I just let the Tivo delete them on its own. Tonight the two-hour premiere of Heroes hits the NBC network, and I’m wondering how it will do in the ratings.Â Heroes, which was once the number one show in America, has to contend with the season premieres of House, and Two and a Half Men, as well as that Dancing with the Stars episode featuring Tom DeLay.
Who’s gonna watch tonight?Â Let your thoughts be heard in the comment section below.
If you were wondering what Ernie Hudson has been doing since HBO’s OZ ended, the answer seemed pretty boring until the announcement that the actor is joining NBC’s Heroes this season.Â The storyline is being kept under wraps, but we have learned that Hudson will play Captain Lubbock, a Baltimore detective.
The upcoming fourth season of “Heroes” introduces a major new mythology about a traveling carnival of people with special powers run by a charismatic but evil Earth-moving ringleader (Robert Knepper).
And let’s not forget the potential girl loves girl storyline with that Hayden girl.
Yup, it’s time for another smattering of television rumors and tid-bits with an order of steak fries and a tub of mayonnaise on the side.Â And by steak fries, I mean Megan Fox, and by mayonnaise, I mean get your mind out of the gutter.
Top Cow Productions, Inc. proudly announced today that fans of Heroes star Milo Ventimiglia will get to meet and greet the actor/producer during the last weekend of June at two separate Los Angeles area comic book stores.Â Ventimiglia will be promoting the release of Berserker #1, a comic book published by Top Cow Productions, Inc. in conjunction with Ventimigliaâ€™s production company, DiVide Pictures.
With all the shakeup going on with the one time hit Heroes, NBC has re-upped Aron Coleite and Joe Pokaski as writers for the series.Â One wonders if they’ll be the ones penning the potential lesbian romance in the show, or if they’ll proceed to lead the mutants those with powers further down the road to telling an interesting story that will capture the magic of the first season. One thing we do know is Pokaski will be replacing Greg Beeman as the producer for the fourth season.
It was bound to happen sooner or later – someone has taken one of Major Spoilers’ brilliant ideas (he said tongue firmly in cheek), and turned it into their own money making venture.Â Milo Ventimiglia, of NBC’s Heroes, plans on taking the concept of Who Would Win style fighting, and turning it into a webÂ series.
The concept is similar to Spike TV’s new series “Deadliest Warrior,” which reconstructs hypothetical matchups between, for instance, a Samurai and a Viking. Only “Ultradome” is played for laughs with pop culture-driven battles, and shows fans fighting instead of trying to re-create the iconic warriors themselves.
Ventimiglia and his co-creator Russ Cundiff will fight each other as Lord of the Rings takes on Star Wars in the first episode.
Greg Beeman, the producer/director of the Heroes television series on NBC has been given his walking papers.Â Beeman doesn’t seem too upset over the announcement.
You see, I will not be returning to HEROES for Season 4. Ultimately this was a financially motivated decision made by NBC. They no longer want to have a Producer/Director position on the show. But it coincides well with my own innate wanderlust, and so, while sad to leave so many friends and comrades, I am excited for the future.
The good news is, he will be continuing his Beeman’s blog with all of his future projects, so here’s hoping we continue to see more high quality images like the one of Hayden above.
