by     Posted Yesterday

It’s a good thing NBC released that Constantine trailer revealed at San Diego Comic-Con because it’s far superior to that last one we shared back in June and also goes well beyond that very first one we got, which essentially is a summary of the pilot episode.  Not only does this new version continue to highlight Matt Ryan’s spot-on casting, but it also rocks loads of eerie imagery, a powerful build and some new material that offers up a more comprehensive sense of what to expect from the show’s first season.

Hit the jump to check out the Constantine SDCC preview.  The show kicks off on October 24th at 10/9c and also stars Lucy Griffiths (for a little bit at least), Harold Perrineau and Charles Halford with Daniel Cerone and David S. Goyer aboard as executive producers.

The CW Adds Ra’s al Ghul Footage to New ARROW Season 3 Trailer

arrow ras al ghul

The CW released the first Arrow season 3 trailer on Friday.  On Saturday, Stephen Amell announced that Ra’s al Ghul will be the big bad in season 3, so The CW has released a new extended trailer that adds about 30 seconds of Ra’s al Ghul footage at the end of the clip.  Ra’s al Ghul was referenced several times in season 2, so fans guessed this was coming.  His presence in this footage is represented by camera pans across a faceless costume and ominous voice-over, so it will be interesting to see who the Arrow team casts as the immortal villain.

Starring Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, David Ramsey, Willa Wolland and Caity Lotz along with new cast members Peter Stormare, Devon Aoki and Brandon Routh, Arrow season 3 returns October 8.  Check out the first look at Ra’s al Ghul after the jump.

Season one of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is all wrapped up for the year, but the super spies have one last treat for their faithful viewers.  While the show definitely had some growing pains (chronicled by our own Evan Valentine’s weekly recaps) and plenty of unintentionally hilarious moments, this new blooper reel is an absolute delight.  Watch Clark Gregg get attacked by a rogue fly, Ming-Na Wen get tongue-tied, and Chloe Bennet welcome you to Chloe’s Corner.  Co-stars Brett Dalton, Iain De Caestecker, and Elizabeth Henstridge get their own share of the giggles in this behind-the-scenes look.

Season one of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will debut on Blu-ray/DVD on September 9th.  Hit the jump to watch the season one blooper reel.

Guardians of the Galaxy doesn’t arrive until Friday, but Marvel’s clearly got high hopes for the property because not only did the studio confirm a sequel for July 28, 2017, but now they’re finally moving forward with that rumored Guardians of the Galaxy animated series, too.  There’s no word on when it will air, but during San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Animation and Disney XD did share a one-minute preview of the show.

Disney XD also renewed Marvel’s Avengers Assemble and Marvel’s Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. for second seasons, both of which are due to premiere in the fall.  Avengers Assemble features the voices of Adrian Pasdar, Fred Tatasciore, Roger Craig Smith, and Troy Baker while Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. has got Tatasciore, Clancy Brown, Seth Green and Eliza Dushku.  Hit the jump for more.

TRUE BLOOD Recap: “Karma”

true-blood-season-7-recap

In “Karma,” True Blood has kept its final season ship afloat — after it took on so much water to start things off — by keeping a balance between the supernatural and the homespun.  Scores are settled by the Yakuza and the Hep V vamps, while back in Bon Temps, a family has to explain to their kids why they aren’t allowed to have sex with each other, even if they aren’t related by blood.  So, you know, the best of both worlds.  Hit the jump, after you go and buy some anti-glamour contacts from Walgreens, of course.

THE LEFTOVERS Recap: “Gladys”

the leftovers recap gladys

In “Gladys,” The Leftovers shifted its focus to the Guilty Remnant (or “the GR,” as Kevin refers to them).  And yet, there’s not much more known about them now than there was before.  They’re into wearing white, aggressively smoking, and buying up real estate, but there hasn’t been a reason given for their methodology or beliefs.  Still, aside from a lot of wheel spinning, “Gladys” also showed, because of where its brutal opening scene ultimately led, there’s a lot going on in that wide world beyond Mapleton that might play into the overall mystery.  Hit the jump for why “we want them to remember something they want to forget.”

THE STRAIN Recap: “Gone Smooth”

the-strain-recap-season-1-episode-3

Despite its title, The Strain‘s “Gone Smooth” was sadly not a reference to Ephraim losing his hair (thereby releasing the beautiful baldness that is Corey Stoll‘s dome).  However, quite a few others began losing theirs, and thus begins the transformation (and, soon, infiltration) from human to zombie vampire worm-infested killing beast.  While The Strain‘s dialogue and character development haven’t been particularly good (and in some cases, it’s specifically bad), what the show excels in are monsters.  And if you keep the focus on that, then there’s no strain in viewing it.  Hit the jump for “soon!”

MASTERS OF SEX Recap: “Fight”

masters-of-sex-season-2-episode-3

Prior to “Fight,” the most promising moment of this season of Masters of Sex – the moment when many of us sat up, adjusted our glasses and thought, “here we go!” — was when Ginny and Bill had the heart-breaking conversation in the hotel where they tried (and failed) to define the intricacies of their relationship.  In “Fight,” the topic was brought up again, and explored with the depth it deserves, and with a strangeness and emotional honesty that made Masters of Sex feel, for the first time truly, like Mad Men.  Hit the jump for why “a hole is easier than a pole.”

RAY DONOVAN Recap: “Gem & Loan”

by     Posted 3 days ago

ray-donovan-season-2-episode-3

In “Gem & Loan,” Ray Donovan explored partnerships and alliances.  It also created a partnership, for this hour at least, between two of its more disparate parts: the family drama and Ray as a fixer.  Ray Donovan is at its best when Ray’s job intersects with his family or other storylines that viewers are already invested in.  It also was a rare episode where everyone, by the end of it, was more or less content.  Hit the jump for why “you’re a real pisser.”

Comic-Con: THE STRAIN “He Is Here” Event Featuring Guillermo del Toro with over 20 Images

The FX drama series The Strain is creepy, gory and just bloody good fun.  Having seen eight of the 13 episodes that will make up Season 1, I can say that it’s everything I’d want from a summer TV series, sprouted from the crazy imaginative mind of Guillermo del Toro.

Taking advantage of their time at Comic-Con, The Strain held an exclusive fan event, called “He Is Here,” at the Reading Cinemas Gaslamp 15.  While showrunner Carlton Cuse and most of the cast dropped by to greet the line, Guillermo del Toro spent quite some time in the theater lobby, chatting with fans and signing the posters that were given out.  Even comic book artist Mike Huddleston was there, signing and sketching.  And, of course, The Master himself introduced the screening of the pilot episode.  Hit the jump for photos of a collection of prominent props and costumes that were on display from the show.

In addition to picking up Peter Stormare, Devon Aoki and Brandon Routh for its third season, The CW’s Arrow held a panel today at the San Diego Comic-Con where unveiled a trailer for the aforementioned (and apparently action packed) Season 3.  To be honest, I’ve never seen an episode but what I’m seeing here looks like it hits its intended target.

AGENT CARTER to Feature Edwin Jarvis, aka Howard Stark’s Butler and Inspiration for Tony Stark’s AI

During a roundtable interview at Comic-Con with Agent Carter producers Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus, our reporter Rachel Howard learned that a very special character will be featured on the period television show.  Since the screenwriters have had such a good time planting Easter eggs and messing with time-travel tropes in their Captain America features, they said that fans could expect more of the same in the show, which takes place in 1946 and finds Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter marginalized while working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve) when the men return home from WWII.  Joining Carter on screen will be none other than Edwin Jarvis, a name comic book fans should know quite well.  Hit the jump for more.

EVIL DEAD TV Show Planned; Sam Raimi Writing and Bruce Campbell Will Be Involved

by     Posted 5 days ago

evil-dead-tv-show

An interesting piece of news that came out at the panel for The Last of Us today was that Sam Raimi is currently writing and Evil Dead TV show.  Which is bizarre to me, but no more bizarre than the tortured development history of Army of Darkness 2.  Where does this leave that film?  And what does this mean for Evil Dead 2 (the apparently-still-gestating sequel to Fede Alvarez’s remake)?  We have no idea because Raimi didn’t mention anything in regard to those projects.  He barely mentioned anything in regard to this project except for the fact that he’s co-writing it with his brother Ivan Raimi and that Bruce Campbell will be involved.
