Keith Knight’s TV Show Has Release Date, Trailer

There’s going to be a TV show based on the life and work of cartoonist Keith Knight, whose cartoons I’ve admired for a long time. His best work, imo, is The K Chronicles but he also had a more traditional newspaper comic strip, The Knight Life, and the editorial-style (th)ink. Woke stars Lamorne Morris (New Girl) as Keef, a cartoonist whose worldview is changed (he starts seeing things talk to him) after a racist police encounter. It will have eight […]

Lucifer: The Complete Fourth Season

I finally got a chance to watch Lucifer: The Complete Fourth Season, which came out on DVD in May. (That’s a year after this season debuted on Netflix, which is typical timing.) The season opens with a morose Lucifer, depressed after Chloe saw his real face (at the end of the third season, when he rescued her from assault-rifle attack). She’s bolted, on vacation for a month, so he mopes around, which allows us all a reminder of the key […]

LEGO DC Shazam! Magic & Monsters

LEGO DC Shazam! Magic & Monsters is the latest original animated film blending two major brands, following in the path of Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: The Flash, Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Aquaman: Rage of Atlantis, and of course, Lego Batman. (And boy, I’m glad they’ve streamlined the titles.) This is great family viewing for a lazy afternoon (and aren’t most of them these days?), even if I did drift off a bit during the final big fight. It’s […]

More J. Jonah Jameson to Come from JK Simmons

In this brief clip provided by SiriusXM, JK Simmons answers the question as to whether we’ll see him again as J. Jonah Jameson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This comes from a call-in to The Jess Cagle Show. I have to say, one thing the Marvel movies get very right is their casting. Simmons is perfect as the grumpy, old-school newspaper editor, just as Robert Downey Jr. was perfect as Iron Man and Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Strange. I’m so […]

Ruby Rose Quits Batwoman

This is one of those “shame we’ll never know” stories. The star of Batwoman, Ruby Rose, has left the show, and no one’s saying why, although there was a significant on-set injury during a stunt, and the typically regressive superhero audience harassed the actor off of Twitter. Warner will be replacing the lead role with a new, original character. According to Decider, “Ryan Wilder is about to become Batwoman. She’s likable, messy, a little goofy and untamed. She’s also nothing […]

Wonder Woman Series Coming to Blu-ray

Coming at the end of July is the release of Wonder Woman: The Complete Series, all three seasons of the 1970s TV show, remastered for Blu-ray. The show starred Lynda Carter as Diana Prince, who in season one was Wonder Woman in the 1940s (and aired on ABC). Seasons two and three (on CBS) moved the show to the then-current 70s, with Steve Trevor (Lyle Waggoner) now the son of the previous and the two working as some kind of […]

Scooby-Doo Origin Movie Goes to Home Video

Warner Bros. has announced that Scoob!, the first full-length animated Scooby-Doo movie intended for theaters, will instead be available through home video services beginning on May 15. Or, as they put it, “available for both Premium Video On Demand (PVOD) and for premium digital ownership in the U.S. and Canada… while theaters remain closed due to the current global health crisis.” I don’t know why “premium” keeps popping up, unless it’s to make us feel better about the pricing, or […]
