Marvel Launching Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes Cartoon

Marvel has announced that their The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes animated series will debut this fall on their parent company’s Disney XD channel (three years after production on the 26 half-hour episodes started — cartoons take time!). As can be seen from this promotional image, they’re pushing hard on the characters known from the (existing or upcoming) movies: Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, and Captain America. Thankfully, this promo video trailer shows that Ant-Man/Giant-Man and the Wasp (hey! a girl!) are […]

Lost: The Complete Collection Due August 24

I have a confession to make: the major reason KC wanted our new Blu-ray player for his birthday was because he enjoys watching Lost, and he’s already anticipating Lost: The Complete Collection, out next month on August 24. The big appeal for fans like him is that the set contains additional story material, which will make this a must-have for any dedicated viewer. If you’re not a Blu-ray fan, the set is also available on DVD. Here’s the official content […]

Spectacular Spider-Man Cartoon Starts Second Season

I didn’t realize Spidey has a new cartoon series running on Disney XD. The second season premieres on Monday, June 22, at 7 PM with two episodes. After that, episodes run at 7:30 on Mondays. It’s set in high school, where the character works particularly well. Here are the show descriptions: In the season premiere, “Blueprints”, Peter wants to talk to Gwen about their first kiss, but before he gets the chance, Spider-Man has a run-in with the sorcerer Mysterio.

Leverage: The Miracle Job

Tonight, TNT airs the Leverage episode “The Miracle Job” at 10 PM Eastern. It’s not a Christmas episode as such — too early in the show’s run for that, although I’d love to see one — but it does deal with a case involving a church, St. Nicholas, and redemption. D.B. Sweeney plays a priest, an old friend of Nate’s (Timothy Hutton) whose sanctuary is about to be demolished by a developer building a mall. The team decides to try […]

John Rogers’ New Project: Leverage

I enjoyed Blue Beetle largely because of John Rogers’ writing. He’s not writing it any more. (Matthew Sturges (House of Mystery) has taken over.) Instead, Rogers has moved to television, with a new TNT series called Leverage. He’s executive-producing this “action-packed drama” along with Dean Devlin (Independence Day). Timothy Hutton stars as the leader of a team of thieves and con artists who steal from those who deserve it in order to help those not so well off. It’s got […]
