DC’s BLACK LIGHTNING To Become Series At CW

Super Producer and writer Greg Berlanti is adding a fifth superhero TV series to the CW next season. The network, which already has ArrowThe FlashDC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirlhas ordered a new series based on another DC property, Black Lightning. Entertainment Weekly describes the show:

“Jefferson Pierce made his choice: he hung up the suit and his secret identity years ago, but with one daughter hell-bent on justice and the other a star student being recruited by a local gang, he’ll be pulled back into the fight as the wanted vigilante and DC legend Black Lightning.”

Black Lightning is one of DC’s first major African-American superheroes; he was created by Tony Isabella with Trevor Von Eeden in 1977.

One thing is for certain, despite DC’s recent trend in more than disappointing features, you have to say their television game has been pretty strong. It really is something unique and special when one network has so many properties in one place.

What do you think about the addition of Black Lightning to the CW family?

First Marvel's Inhumans Photo Reveals the Royal Family

Marvel Entertainment and ABC have officially released the first Marvel’s Inhumans photo at EW, and you can check it out in the gallery below! In addition, executive producer Scott Buck revealed some details, including: When the story begins, Attilan (the home of the Inhumans) will not actually be on Earth; Ellen Woglom’s character is a new one and not from the comics; and lead character Black Bolt will primarily communicate in sign language in the series.

“Black Bolt is a very difficult character I would think for Anson, but for any actor to play,” Buck tells the outlet. “But Anson is tackling it in a hugely fantastic way. It’s a little bit difficult to write him, because Black Bolt does not speak, but yet he is our hero and he is the center of the show, so it does certainly present challenges in how you tell his story, but fortunately we came up with a really good story. Anson is terrific. I think everyone’s going to be very pleased and excited by his Black Bolt. We’re not doing voice over. If you read the comics, you see Black Bolt does find a way to communicate to people, but he’s also a very enigmatic character as well, and he keeps a lot inside. That’s part of what’s so fascinating about him is that a lot of times, we don’t know what he’s thinking.

‘Star Wars Rebels’ Comes Close To Explaining The Pokiness Of Vader And Obi-Wan’s ‘A New Hope’ Duel

In 1977, Obi-Wan Kenobi battled Darth Vader aboard the Death Star. At the time audiences had only a partial understanding of the relationship between the Jedi and the Sith, unaware the confrontation was the culmination of decades friendship and betrayal. After crossing blades and words, Obi-Wan took a final look at Luke Skywalker and accepted his fate, falling to Vader’s blade. But what looked like a battle of titans when Star Wars was first released started to resemble the frantic bumbling of two elderly men once fans realized what Jedi and Sith were capable of in the prequel trilogy.

But with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story last year, and now the latest episode of Star Wars Rebels, Lucasfilm is laying the groundwork that could explain why the final encounter between the Master Jedi and his Padawan is so lackluster in hindsight.

WARNING Spoilers for both Rogue One and the “Twin Suns” episode of Star Wars Rebels beyond this point.

Trump Supporters Get Mad Because They Think The Man in the High Castle’s ‘Resistance Radio’ Is Real

Some conservatives and Donald Trump supporters are freaking out online because there’s a new pirate station called Resistance Radio, dedicated to fighting fascism and Nazi propaganda. Only one problem: It’s fake.

Amazon announced this week that it was launching Resistance Radio as a companion program for “The Man in the High Castle”, an alt-history drama loosely adapted from the Philip K. Dick novel. The pre-recorded radio program is basically a bunch of people talking about how the Third Reich is bad and does bad things. For some, they thought that applied to America’s current president (and/or they didn’t bother actually listening to it). In response, several irate opposers flocked to Amazon’s sponsored #ResistanceRadio hashtag to complain about the station’s “liberal agenda.” Continue reading
