The line between television and comics continues to blur as TV’s Grimm becomes a comic book!
Dynamite Entertainment is proud to announce that Grimm comic books and graphic novels, set in the world of the acclaimed NBC series, will hit stores in 2013! The Grimm comic books and graphic novels are licensed through NBCUniversal Television Consumer Products.
Dynamite announces the renewal of the classic 1978 Battlestar Galactica license with NBCUniversal, as the acclaimed writing duo of Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning sign on to write an epic Battlestar Galactica series for Dynamite Entertainment in 2013! This classic Battlestar Galactica series is licensed by NBCUniversal Television Consumer Products Group.
There was a time I could tell you anything and everything about The Walt Disney company, their films, their business practices, and anything you cared to know about their characters. Sadly, too much boozing and being beatdown by upper middle management have forced most of those ideas and facts from my simple mind. I remember reading somewhere long ago about the 1928 Oswald the Lucky Rabbit short, Hungry Hobos, but I had forgotten all about it. Seems The Walt Disney Animation Studios forgot about the animated piece, too, but fortunately, the lost print has been found and restored.
NBC got my attention when they revealed that Eddie Izzard (!!) would be filling Al Lewis’ shoes as the affably undead Gran’pa Munster, and now they’ve chosen the actor who will put on Fred Gwynne’s platform boots as Herman.
It seems that anytime Stan Lee attaches his name to anything, people automatically grab onto it thinking it will be the next big Spider-Man, or Fantastic Four, or Striperalla. NBC is hoping to hit that kind of gold again with Lee’s The Guardian Project.
If you don’t already know, the Guardian Project is a series of superheroes based on the National Hockey League’s 30 teams. And with the NHL Championship concluding last night, this seems like the perfect time to roll out the announcement.
The conglom has taken a minority equity stake in the property that is being developed as a TV series, films, comicbooks, games, licensed merchandise and theme park attractions.
Tight now everything is in the Promotional Idea stage, but who knows… next year we could see the Vancouver Canuck superhero mascot rise again.. but will probably be stomped on by the Boston Bruin.
During the whole Wonder Woman in pants debacle that plagued David E. Kelley’s pilot for the television series, word started to spread that Wonder Woman would have multiple costumes, including the expected swimsuit version we’ve all known and loved for years.
Wonder Woman TV did the leg work and found this pic that shows Adrianne Palicki without pants.
Looks like we won’t get to see David E. Kelley’s take on Wonder Woman, as NBC has decided to pass on the show, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The drama, produced by Warner Bros. TV, is a reinvention of the iconic DC comic in which Wonder Woman (Adrianne Palicki) is a vigilante crime-fighter in Los Angeles but also a successful corporate executive trying to balance all the elements of her extraordinary life. Joining Palicki is Elizabeth Hurley, Tracie Thoms and Cary Elwes. Jeff Reiner (The Event) directed the pilot.
Part of the reason for the pass is lackluster buzz surrounding the show, which, if you’ve been reading this site for any length of time, you know that translates to utter hatred for the idea, look, and concept of the show from many of the Intardwebz people.
With Wonder Woman and Locke & Key getting let go, I guess we’ll all have to satiate ourselves with another season of Chuck.
Been pretty busy today with some other things that need to take priority, but I did manage to see the new Wonder Woman costume worn by Adrianne Palicki on the set of the Wonder Woman television series.
Most of the problems people had with the original costume have been tweaked, refined, or fixed.
- Boots – no more high heels
- Pants – no longer shiny
- Boots – RED!
What do you think now?
We know that Adriene Palicki has been cast as Wonder Woman in the David K. Kelley Wonder Woman series, and we know Elizabeth Hurley will play bad-girl Veronica Cale. But what about Steve Trevor? Deadline reports that Justin Bruening has been cast as the the former army vet who now works for the Justice Department.
More pics of the actor after the jump.
