For Season 3, Once Upon A Time explores the fantasy world of Neverland. Unlike previous adaptations, showrunners Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis’ take on Peter Pan will be darker, more complicated and frightening. In addition to Peter Pan, the show’s producers are adding three new characters to the mix. Correction, only two. Robin Hood was actually introduced last season, but due to Tom Ellis’ availability, the role has been recast. Find out who’s taking over and what other fairy tale favorites are setting sail to Neverland this Fall.
OMG. I think I just jizzed a little ;) Henry Cavill and Tyler Hoechlin in the same movie and in tight superhero outfits to boot. Stick a fork in me cuz I’m dunzo.
Just days after Warner Bros. announced a joint Superman and Batman tentpole, word is out on who might step into Christian Bale’s utility belt. According to Cosmic Book News, the Teen Wolf star is “being heavily considered” for the part and reportedly testing for the part opposite Cavill shortly. Check out what the reported plot is according to the website’s sources.
If you watched Monday night’s The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All special, you have a pretty good idea who’s in the running to become the next Bachelor based on crowd reaction and attention given by Chris Harrison. Even though, several men on Desiree Hartsock’s season were clearly on the show purely to land the coveted gig, it’s one of the most unassuming ones who won the hearts of viewers. I thought I was alone in loving this guy, but it appears not. Find out who E! News is reporting was offered the gig and seriously considering it.
Just a couple of days after The Carrie Diaries announced it found its young Samantha Jones, the CW show releases the first promo pic featuring Lindsey Gort as the iconic character. She definitely looks the part, but will Gort capture Samantha’s fabulously slutty essence? Fingers crossed that she does.
“In another nerve-wracking search to create the amazing characters we all came to know and love on ‘Sex and the City,’ we went out in search this year for a young Samantha Jones,” executive producer Amy B. Harris said. “Lindsey Gort walked into the room and owned the part. Funny and sexy with a whiff of vulnerability and an amazing dash of outrageousness, Lindsey is our exciting choice to play the young Samantha Jones.”
The two most iconic DC Comics heroes are officially teaming up on the big screen for the first time. Warner Bros. officially announced a Batman and Superman tentpole this weekend at Comic Con. While it’s not an Avengers-type film featuring all the superheroes in the DC Universe, at least it’s a start.
The best part of the announcement is that Henry Cavill will be reprising his role as the Man of Steel. Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane will also return for the film which also sees Zack Snyder returning to the directing chair.
“I’m so excited to begin working again with Henry Cavill in the world we created, and I can’t wait to expand the DC Universe in this next chapter,” Snyder said in a statement. “Let’s face it, it’s beyond mythological to have Superman and our new Batman facing off, since they are the greatest Super Heroes in the world.”
One of the biggest surprises of last season was arguably The CW’s decision to renew The Carrie Diaries. Even by the network’s relatively low standards, the ratings were anemic at best. While The Sex and the City prequel didn’t catch on with viewers, I found the adorable show surprisingly entertaining and ecstatic that a second season was in store. Adding to my excitement was the fact producers had plans to introduce a young Samantha Jones.
“Through a surprising connection, our young Carrie Bradshaw will meet one of the most important people in her life this season in a role made iconic by Kim Cattrall: Samantha Jones, a ballsy, beautiful and sexy young woman from the panhandle of Florida who has made her way—and already a name for herself—in the rock ‘n’ roll scene of 1980s NYC.” – The Carrie Diaries’ producers

Can someone say November sweeps? FOX just announced its two most beloved animated families are finally going to meet in a special crossover episode scheduled to air in Fall 2013.
Entertainment Weekly reports that cast members from Matt Groening’s comedy, Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith and Hank Azaria, are set to lend their voices for the mash-up episode, in which Seth MacFarlane’s Griffins clan embark on a road trip and encounter Homer and his family in Springfield.
In the episode, the two families become fast friends. Bart will impress Stewie with his assortment of pranks, Lisa tries to fix Meg, and Marge and Lois ditch housework for a bonding session. Meanwhile, dads Homer and Peter argue over which beer tastes better: Quahog’s Pawtucket or Springfield’s Duff. I expect a ratings bonanza for this sweeps stunt. Catch all their shenanigans on the episode titled “The Simpsons Guy” airing this Fall on FOX.
