AMC announced this week that the season 6 finale of The Walking Dead will be a 90 minute episode where we will finally see Negan, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, in the flesh. Andrew Lincoln said in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly that he felt sick after reading the script for the finale. This leaves the fans wondering just what the cliffhangers will be and if Negan’s reveal will be worth the entire season’s wait.
Game of Thrones is less than a month away and last week we were treated to more shots and teasers for the season airing April 24th. Amongst many images, namely a shot of Max Von Sydow as the three eyed Raven, a new 30 second TV spot and the talk of the largest battle in the show’s history, we were also told this season would not spoil the yet to be released book.
At this weekend’s Wonder Con held here in Los Angeles, it was announced that Voltron: Legendary Defender from Dreamworks TV will be coming to Netflix on June 10th of 2016.

Steven Yeun leads the cast of astronauts, piloting lions that form the titan Voltron that will invoke the nostalgia of the original Voltron with the creative dynamos at Dreamworks bringing it into the modern world.

Every week on TV Talk we’ll discuss the TV happenings in the superhero realm. Tonight on CBS, The Flash will speed his way into Supergirl. Super producer Greg Berlanti has stated in recent interviews that he would love to have Supergirl make her way to Central City, aka The CW’s The Flash. In other words, if this crossover works with Supergirl, the multiverse could live on in The Flash, Arrow and even Legends of Tomorrow.
Jonah Hex, who hasn’t been seen in action since the 2010 big screen debacle, will make his live action return on the April 14th episode of Legends of Tomorrow. The Arrow-verse take on Jonah Hex is not dissimilar to the comics as he’s an old friend of Rip Hunter and familiar with time travel.
Amazon announced last week that Peter Serofinowicz will fill the blue suit of their revival of The Tick. Patrick Warburton, who played the original live action Tick that only aired 9 episodes, will act as executive producer on the series.
