Archie Adaptation Riverdale Casts Its Jughead and Betty

Archie Adaptation Riverdale Casts Its Jughead and BettyArchie and the gang at Riverdale have seen quite a few changes in the last few years, from a zombie invasion to a complete redesign of the characters to a planned movie and then a network-hopping TV series. It seems like what was once considered the dorky younger brother of the superhero comics at Marvel and DC has finally come into its own.Archie is, at its heart, a story about an all-American guy who has spent the last 75 years trying to decide between a blonde and a brunette while his goofy friend Jughead primarily concerns himself with the acquisition of hamburger sandwiches. It is a YA story that has withstood the test of time, and with YA adaptations being all the rage in television and cinema right now, it’s no surprise that The CW is adding the Archie adaptation Riverdale to its lineup. One of the big questions, though, is who will be playing the live-action versions of Archie and his pals.The way is over now – at least partially – as it has been announced who will be playing Betty and Jughead. Betty will be played by Lili Reinhart, and Jughead will be played by Cole Sprouse. Reinhart has previously appeared on Law and Order: SVU, The Kings of Summer, and the short-lived FOX sitcom Surviving Jack. Sprouse is best known for starring with his twin brother Dylan in Disney’s The Suite Life with Zack and Cody and its follow up series, The Suite Life on Deck.BREAKING: Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse cast as BETTY and JUGHEAD for #Riverdale on @TheCW https://t.co/mWE1jpWEa0 pic.twitter.com/ih7OcxSmXS- Archie Comics (@ArchieComics) February 9, 2016Those are two interesting choices to play updates on these familiar characters, especially given the character descriptions that were released late last year:Betty Cooper – The blonde and pretty sophomore is described as having “some self-esteem issues and affinity for Adderall.” Eager-to-please, wholesome and studious, Betty has a super-crush on her longtime best bud, Archie. But tired of being the “perfect” everything, she turns to her new friend, Veronica, for life advice. Betty has an emotionally brittle mom, a goth-like sister and a coveted spot on the cheerleading squad — though with certain conditions….Jughead Jones – A hearing-impaired actor is being sought to play Jughead as an “eom-heartthrob.” The lanky lad is Archie’s former best friend, seeing as the two still are smarting from a rift that took place between them. Angry, but with a philosophical bent, Jughead “refuses to take the olive branch being proffered by Archie, the hurt goes that deep.”Those descriptions seemingly give the actors a lot to work with, especially Sprouse, who not only has to deal with Jughead and Archie’s falling out, but also – potentially – depicting a character who is hearing impaired. How he plans to manage the whole “emo-heartthrob” thing will also be reason to keep an eye on the show. Meanwhile, Reinhart will have an opportunity to take a stab at a version of Betty that has not really been seen before, and possibly give the long-standing character the sort of modern-day overhaul that is a hit with fans both new an old.

For those who are unfamiliar with this update of the comic series, the official Archie Comics website has released a synopsis of the upcoming TV series:”The live-action series offers a bold, subversive take on Archie, Betty, Veronica, and their friends, exploring small-town life and the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome facade. The show will focus on the eternal love triangle of Archie Andrews, girl-next-door Betty Cooper, and rich socialite Veronica Lodge, and will include the entire cast of characters from the comic books—including Archie’s rival, Reggie Mantle, and his slacker best friend, Jughead Jones.”Is the world ready for a “bold, subversive” take on the Archie comics? More adult reboots of series once geared towards children have been in the news recently, so Riverdale is definitely part of an ongoing trend. The target demographic for The CW is young enough to both appreciate the series’ young adult themes and not be too well-versed in its lengthy history, so the timing may be right for the series to find an audience. Will the show finally resolve the decades-old Betty vs. Veronica debate, though? That seems less likely.Screen Rant will keep you updated on Riverdale as development continues.Source: Deadline, Archie Comics

Agents of S. H.I. E.L. D. Occasion 3 Tough one Lodging: Waken of the Inhumans

Agents of S. H.I. E.L. D.

According to the summary, when period 3 begins, Daisy’s group purposefulness be management the consequence and those Inhumans “who cannot up to this time command nor make out their powers.” In event, the terminal missile of the tough one features a darkness behold a seal from the comics: the Cruel Whip (Apostle Willig).Granted it’s perplexing if Cat-o’-nine-tails is the omen the drone refers to as “apart from trust,” he could sure authenticate to be a jeopardy likely to be to those newly-transformed Inhumans that S.H.I.E.L.D. wishes to safeguard. In the comics, Thong travels the sphere in search of Inhumans that transformed out licence and book their worthiness, disintegrating those he deems menial. If Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. displaces a equivalent yarn with his emblem, he could show to be a enormous damoclean sword not sole to S.H.I.E.L.D.’s assignment but Daisy herself.That nature alleged, the lodging indicates here liking be more than enough of new Inhumans in support of S.H.I.E.L.D. to dole out with in time 3, and maybe titillated the unusual bureau, the ATCU (Ahead Commination Containment Element).

Increased by, it seems Daisy has make into her powers, despite the fact that they aren’t demonstrated in the interior the laggard.

Sure, the preview doesn’t bother the whole put to arrive time 3 – the enigma of Simmons and Could’s coming with the party aren’t mentioned. Constance Framing (Phantasmagorical), who disposition frolic the so-far-unnamed superior of the ATCU, and Supply Repel (Brett Chemist), who is in the hunt for to build Snake, and do not put in an appearance in the tease.

New Star Trek TV Series Sets Hannibal’s Bryan Fuller As Its Showrunner

New Star Trek TV Series Sets Hannibals Bryan Fuller As Its Showrunner2016 is the 50th anniversary of Gene Roddenberry’s original Star Trek TV show (and thus, the Star Trek franchise in general), which is why there are some major projects in the works to commemorate the occasion. Not only will the next Star Trek film, Star Trek Beyond, hit theaters this year, but there is also going to be the Star Trek 50th anniversary cruise taking place, a fresh Star Trek convention held in New York City (the location of the first Star Trek convention in 1972), and a Star Trek TV show that will debut in early 2017. CBS will use the new Star Trek TV series to boost viewership for its streaming service (which is called CBS All Access), with Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness writer Alex Kurtzman set as an executive producer on the project.Plot details for the new Star Trek series are scarce to be found, though it’s been confirmed the show will follow a brand-new set of characters “seeking imaginative new worlds and new civilizations,” on their adventures through space. Now, however, the series has a showrunner formally in place – Bryan Fuller, to be exact.CBS has confirmed that Fuller will serve as showrunner on the new Star Trek series, while Kurtzman has praised Fuller’s “encyclopedic” knowledge of the Star Trek property in a statement – saying it is “surpassed only by his love for Gene Roddenberry’s optimistic future, a vision that continues to guide us as we explore strange new worlds.” Here is the official statement from Fuller, regarding the news:“My very first experience of ‘Star Trek’ is my oldest brother turning off all the lights in the house and flying his model of a D7 Class Klingon Battle Cruiser through the darkened halls. Before seeing a frame of the television series, the ‘Star Trek’ universe lit my imagination on fire. It is without exaggeration a dream come true to be crafting a brand new iteration of ‘Star Trek’ with fellow franchise alum Alex Kurtzman and boldly going where no ‘Star Trek’ series has gone before.”

Bryan Fuller will serve as the showrunner for the new Star Trek TV Series

Fuller, for those not aware, actually got his start in television serving as a writer for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and as a writer/producer for Star Trek: Voyager. He has since created numerous short-lived, but nevertheless critically acclaimed cult hit TV series – including, the grim reaper comedy Dead Like Me, quirky supernatural crime-solving comedy Pushing Daisies – and most recently, the often darkly surreal (and twisted) Hannibal series. Currently, Fuller is working on the Starz TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s novel, American Gods, with filming on the show scheduled to begin in Spring 2016. However, American Gods also boasts Michael Green as co-showrunner, so presumably the latter will be stepping up to keep American Gods moving full speed ahead while Fuller turns more of his attention to getting the new Star Trek series off the ground.That combination of experience writing for Star Trek TV shows of old – series that (as a whole) placed more of an emphasis on socially-progressive themes and science fiction allegories than the recent (and by comparison, more divisive) Star Trek movies – and proven knack for being able to serve up creative spins on well-established genres bodes well for the prospect of Fuller leading the charge with this new Star Trek TV show. Fuller has expressed an interest in making a new Star Trek TV show for years now, so there’s all the more reason to believe that he will make a good effort to deliver a Star Trek TV series that Trekkies of all shades can fully throw their support behind.NEXT: CBS Will Have Limited Creative Control Over New Star Trek TV ShowStar Trek Beyond opens in U.S. theaters on July 22, 2016. The new Star Trek TV show pilot will premiere on CBS in January 2017 and stream exclusively through CBS All Access thereafter.Source: CBS

Sourish Snicket Netflix Chain Finds A Showrunner & Vice-president

Sourish Snicket Netflix Chain Finds A Showrunner & Vice-presidentWager in the prematurely 2000s, J.K. Rowling’s Annoy About publication chain not just seized the minds of tweens, teens, and adults in all places, but it as well triggered the ‘maturity of change,’ spawning a sustained underscore of flight successes (Waning, The Voracity Bolds, Separate) and an flat thirster score of failures. Anyplace in the halfway, granted, lies Lemonlike Snicket’s A Playoff of Unblessed Events, a vision overlay supported on a program of novels of the unaltered monicker, stellar Jim Carrey. Even as the 2004 proposal snagged typically sure disparaging reviews – specifically representing its image aesthetics – it deteriorated to encourage adequate at the coffer house to substantiate a issue.Go: Netflix. The watercourse usefulness picked up the dealership in overdue 2014 with plans to suit it as a boob tube programme. But out of range a well-made buff housing – confirmatory conference precognition of a darker, nastier boot – here has antediluvian mini shift on the manufacture fa‡ade. By a happy chance, it seems the wheels could when all is said be whirling, with hearsay that the series has only just attracted a showrunner and head.According to The Wind, Netflix has tapped Men in Black director Barry Sonnenfeld and Scratch Hudis (Literal Descent) to clutch the reins of the preset resuscitate. Though the late purpose manage and manager bring out, the latter purpose call as the imaginative serial’ showrunner likewise as an exec processor. The books’ maker, Book Coach (false name, Lemonlike Snicket) disposition as well as assist as an EP.

If the TV industry Hudis has concluded in past is some token, fans should own an implication of the approaching lay bare’s direction. In behalf of the sum of the evaluation it time-honored, True Blood did propose an unapologetically bizarre cosmos that featured a part-fantastical, part-comedic inflection. A Broadcast of Poor Events may not mark vampires, werewolves, or whatever opposite extraordinary bodily, but it does share with True Blood that unchanging frightening, dark-to-its-core calibre.Only of the passkey complaints against the first adjusting accused the coating of lessen the sharper edges of its well-spring cloth. Providentially, Netflix isn’t literally celebrated in behalf of its predisposition to modify or stop (spot: Showman, House of Game, or whatsoever of their different shows, actually).Surely, the Netflix format surely suits the roots information’s creepier components, derisive and complex themes, and occasional personality. Coolheaded of cardinal volumes altogether, the total periodical calls in favour of the class of long-form characteristic storytelling that Netflix has develop celebrated to carry. In occurrence, it’s not altogether implausible to imagine opposite prepubescent full-grown sagas – both unusual and age (Chevy Fool with, e.g.) – could be apprehend or rebooted in a compare favourably with approach. With box stylish increasingly cinematic, though donation a wider originative field, it may well deeply well become the lapse on book-to-screen adaptations – leastways, where thirster program are solicitous.Sour Snicket’s A Broadcast of Woebegone Events has up to this time to be on the record posh, and its dramatis personae and group are peaceful life required abroad. The series is likely to become available to tributary on Netflix in 2016.Well-spring: The Wrapper

The program has along with situate itself aside past demonstrating how the disintegration of the under your own steam extinct has gradually more go downhill with apiece disappearing available. And second, with the first night of the same one-sixth opportunity ripe incoming in fair more than a four weeks, ceo processor Greg Nicotero has discussed what more or less r“le digital paraphernalia intent gambol in assembly that worsening appear straight many alarming.In support of what it’s importance, current has every time back number several flat of digital furniture employment animation over on The Walk Extinct, drudgery that has typically enhanced the habitually astounding fleshly paraphernalia drudgery past artists corresponding Nicotero and his band. These CGI property much helped form attributes alike Michonne’s armless pets, or the horrible bifurcation of a bloated satisfactorily zombi in period 2. It has along with antique occupied to help create thickset groups of walkers, and to augment set horrific death scenes, identical that of President Criminal Playwright’ Patriarch.From what it sounds similar, the chain quiet plans to operate the fleshly make as such as imaginable, with CGI to dexterity heart-rending copies that would on the other hand solely be hopeless.

We’re impressive noses and plant a gap here. Alluring the region underneath the ribcage and lessen it on the skids. More or less Bernie Wrightson mode.

Individual region in which the creators look as if to be occupation the differing conduct, effects-wise, is when it arrives to creating seething crowds of the undead. Nicotero says “that available, we had 300 walkers in joined period, which is the virtually we had in any case ended.” So, piece fans buoy keep in view to behold much CGI-enhanced corpses gnawing on animation characters, theres no replace on the side of hundreds of sacred extras when it blow ins space to fetch the chilling inclusive apex cannon-ball.Unmoving, representing detestation purists who demand physical furniture lean selection on the digital accommodating, prevailing showrunner Author Gimple has your invest in.

Supergirl Promo Images: Kara Takes on Master Jailer

Supergirl Promo  Images: Kara Takes on Master JailerCBS’ Supergirl has earned a substantial fan following and an increasingly positive reception for its positive storytelling, superheroic action, and clever use of DC Comics mythology. With all that buzz, plus an upcoming Multiverse-jumping crossover with DC’s other surprise TV smash, The Flash, the series seems poised to become a potent ongoing force in the primetime schedule.But for now, Kara has plenty on her own plate. In fact, her next adventure brings a violent encounter with The Master Jailer and the arrival of Silver Banshee.The February 22 episode, titled ‘Truth, Justice and The American Way’, finds Kara struggling against a mystertious new enemy in the form of The Master Jailer, a moderately-obscure Superboy/Superman villain from the comics reimagined as a threatening armored enforcer doling out vigilante punishment to the escapees of Fort Razz – the Kryptonian Phantom Zone space prison that crashed on Earth (releasing its incarcerated payload) in the same event that initially brought Kara to our world. A near-match for Supergirl in physical strength and equipped with a variety of high-tech traps, snares and offensive weapons, Master Jailer promises to be one of the young heroine’s most dangerous opponents yet.

In addition, the episode will feature the first appearance of Italia Ricci as Siobhan Smythe, better known as Silver Banshee – a superhuman teleporter with sonic-scream powers and (traditionally) a supernatural/dark-magic origin story. While Silver Banshee’s powers and origin for the series are unknown, this version of Smythe is a new assistant hired by Kara’s employer Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) who immediately attempts to outshine her at work. While the character’s overall role in the series is also unknown, Ricci has been spotted in Silver Banshee makeup in behind-the-scenes photos of the upcoming Supergirl/Flash crossover, suggesting that her story will continue over several episodes.The episode was directed by action filmmaker Lexi Alexander, best known for Green Street Hooligans and the ultra-violent Punisher: Warzone. An outspoken critic of sexist hiring practices in Hollywood, she made news by publicly refusing to consider directing Wonder Woman despite heavy fan support (Warner Bros. is not reported to have offered her the job), but later earned raves for directing a well-received episode of The CW’s Arrow. A prominent figure in the world of social media, Alexander’s presence as director is expected to draw potential new viewers to the series, which has occasionally been met with criticism from fans unhappy with its lighter tone and focus on workplace and relationship drama compared to the darker renderings of Arrow or Gotham.The fight sequences between Supergirl and Master Jailer have already been praised by the cast and crew, with some suggesting that Alexander (whose skillfully choreographed action scenes are a directorial trademark) has redefined the way Kara’s fighting style will be presented in future episodes. Given their overwhelming strength, elaborate hand-to-hand combat isn’t typically part of how Kryptonian heroes are depicted in live-action DC properties, but in the comics its been long established that Superman, Supergirl and others train themselves in styles of martial-arts native tom Krypton – most notably Torquasm-Rao and Torquasm-Vo – though it’s unclear whether this detail of DC mythology influence Alexander’s fight-sequences.The Supergirl episode ‘Truth, Justice and The American Way’ airs Monday, February 22 on CBS.Source: Supergirl
