Considering that Dreamworks' new take on one of pop culture's most beloved giant robots has had two really solid seasons so far, that's almost certainly a very good thing.
In addition to including some new footage — not nearly enough of it being dedicated to Colleen Wing kicking butt, sadly — this new Iron Fist featurette lets Finn Jones set up the world of Netflix's latest Marvel show. Unsurprisingly, the world of a Living Weapon involves quite a bit of punching.
The robot discourse has changed dramatically since the first season of Humans was on air in 2015. This is mainly because HBO premiered Westworld last spring, a mindscrew of a show that used robots to dig deep into the nature of consciousness and the metaphysical requirements of a soul. Humans, while also very much about the nature of consciousness, is not so esoteric in its exploration.
This past weekend, the BBC aired Terry Pratchett: Back in Black, a part-drama, part-documentary tribute to mark the death of one of fantasy's most beloved authors. Typically, these sorts of specials about dead celebrities include "talking head" insight from fellow celebrities, but rarely cover the indelible mark left on seas of ordinary fans. Back in Black does, and it's what makes it stand out as a stunning farewell to Pratchett.
Ever since skeezy Dr Holden Radcliffe made his first Life Model Decoy, I've been waiting for this. Sure, he created Aida to infiltrate SHIELD HQ and steal the Darkhold; then he imprisoned Melinda May and sent an unwitting LMD of her as back-up. But that's small potatoes to the LMD craziness seen over and over again in Marvel Comics. Well, the latest episode of Agents of SHIELD upped its game.
Last month, Archie Comics CCO and Riverdale producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa hinted at the comics publisher's plans to expand its television ventures beyond Riverdale and into a whole Archie empire. Now, those plans just got a bit more official, with the announcement of a new deal between the publisher and Warner Bros.
Two days ago, news broke that a Castlevania TV show would be heading to Netflix in 2017, prompting thousands of jokes quoting dialogue from the video game series. In a Facebook post, producer Adi Shankar said, "I personally guarantee that it will end the streak and be the Western world's first good video game adaptation." I talked to Shankar yesterday and he sounds totally committed to that.
