I’m a fan of cartoons. Throw in some super heroes and I’m a HUGE fan of cartoons. One I was a fan of was the DC cartoon Young Justice. It was fun seeing all the side kicks get their turn in the spotlight and it had a rather unconventional season structure where at the end of season 1 into season 2 it jumped ahead a few months and completely changed the dynamic of the team without any explination so that when the story unfolded for the season you got to see what these changes were all about. We were sad when it was announced that it was canceled after Season 2.
There was some lobbying by fans for Netflix to pick it up but it remained pretty silent until today. There’s no word on where it’s going to be shown but it looks like Season 3 is moving forward in production so we at least will see something. Were you a fan of the show?
Before now we’ve only gotten a quick peek of Patrick Warburton’s Lemony Snicket giving us a tour of the set of the new Netflix adaptation of A Series Of Unfortunate Events. Now we’ve got a full trailer of not only the kids but of Neil Patrick Harris in his full Count Olaf make up. I think it’s perfect casting as he seems like he’ll fully embrace every scene chewing moment.
These books were adapted before for the big screen but never had a follow up. Doing it as a Netflix series seems like the perfect way to adapt a book series like this. Check out the trailer below.
We have been treated to the second Wonder Woman trailer and we get to see more of the island of Themyscira, more World War I action, and lots of bullets bouncing off of wristbands.
I’ve been vocal about my disappointment with Batman V. Superman but have said that anytime Diana was in her gear throwing down it was pretty awesome. Can’t wait to see what is in store for Wonder Woman’s first theatrical outing in her own film. What about you? Check out the new trailer below.
I’m a huge Stephen King nerd. Like really huge. So when I heard that Simon & Schuster were putting out a book based on the in book childrens book Charlie the Choo-Choo I was excited. It is a childrens book that Jake finds in a book store in the Dark Tower series that has a connection to Mid-World.
Coming at the end of November King will once again don a pseudonym to fit in the Dark Tower meta continuity. As Beryl Evans he’ll be bringing the book to life along with illustrations from Ned Dameron. From the Press Release:
Engineer Bob has a secret: His train engine, Charlie the Choo-Choo, is alive…and also his best friend. From celebrated author Beryl Evans (a pseudonym for Stephen King) and illustrator Ned Dameron comes a story about friendship, loyalty, and hard work.
Fans of Stephen King’s acclaimed Dark Tower series will recognize Charlie the Choo-Choo as the picture book that shows up in Book Three, The Waste Lands, written by the character Beryl Evans. An Easter egg for devoted fans, a mock-up of the book was recently distributed at San Diego Comic Con, where over 500 fans gathered to claim one of 150 copies available. Now in its completion, fans across the country can bring Charlie the Choo-Choo to their home libraries.
