IN OTHER NEWS... 04/30/2013

And IN OTHER NEWS... Podcasts! Guillermo del Toro! Musketeers! Guillermo del Toro! Again! The Avengers 2! The Inhumans!

There's a whole lotta castin' goin' on! Here's our pick of the latest:

Pacific Rim
Here's the new, jaw-dropping trailer for the upcoming Mechas vs Kaiju sci-fi flick, Pacific Rim.

The Musketeers
BBC America has announced a 10-part action drama based upon Alexandre Dumas' classic tale, The Three Musketeers. The Musketeers stars Luke Pasqualino as the hot-headed D'Artagnan, Tom Burke as Athos, Santiago Cabrera as Aramis and Howard Charles as Porthos. You can check out the additional cast list and even a few publicity shots ahead of the show's 2014 airing.
Creating Marvel Knights: The Inhumans
Here's a look behind-the-scenes at the making of the Marvel Knights: Inhumans animated movie.

Guillermo del Toro's Monster
Horrormeister Guillermo del Toro is developing a TV series for HBO, based upon the Japanese comicbook, Monster.

According to Deadline:

The thriller is about the worldwide search by a young doctor for the most evil sociopath that has ever lived. He is a 12-year-old boy, and the doctor’s decision to save his life has unwittingly unleashed a Pandora’s Box that leaves the doc battling to stop a plot of mass genocide.

Del Toro is set to direct and co-write the show, with Doctor Who and Sherlock's Steven Thompson handling scripting duties for the pilot.
The Avengers 2
Joss Whedon has teased that the upcoming Avengers 2 is to include some new additions to the team in the form of ''a brother/sister act.'' As long-term readers of The Avengers comicbook will know, sibling villains-turned-heroes Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch - AKA Pietro and Wanda Maximoff - have been on/off members of Earth's Mightiest Heroes since shortly after the group's formation, so it would seem Whedon plans to follow comicbook continuity. However, it may not all be plain sailing, as 20th Century Fox - producers of the X-Men movie series - technically also have the rights to use the characters, as both originally appeared in The X-Men comics...


  1. That Pacific Rim movie is going to be sweet!

    1. I think it looks completely stupid and dumb. So it'll be great fun.
