Not So Fast, New Warriors – TV Series Plans on Hold

This past spring, Freeform (a channel part of the ABC/Disney family) decided they wanted a New Warriors TV series. It was going to be a half-hour live-action sitcom about young superheroes. Many people were excited about the show idea because one of the characters was going to be Squirrel Girl, a fan favorite. Now comes word that Freeform has dropped the series (although they’re still proceeding with their Cloak and Dagger show plans). Producers are shopping the show around to […]

If you now visit their site, you’ll see links to ad-supported platforms like Tubi TV and Roku’s recently launched Roku Channel[.] Amazon will continue to sell Comic-Con HQ’s catalog through its Channels video […]

Constantine Animated Series Coming to CW Seed in 2018

The Constantine series was the first comic-book TV failure of the current era, with the series only running 13 episodes on NBC from 2014-2015. It was an odd choice in the first place for such a safe network, since it was about a conflicted, foul-talking demon fighter who could be as bad as the evil he fought, played by Matt Ryan. But Warner hasn’t given up on the character. (Which is great, since the show was better than you might […]

Sabrina TV Show to Take More Horrific Direction

The CW, pleased with the delayed viewing figures and growing fan base for Riverdale, is looking to create a companion TV show based around Sabrina the teenage witch, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Riverdale showrunner (and Archie Comics Chief Creative Officer) Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and producer Greg Berlanti are developing The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, “a dark coming-of-age tale that traffics in horror, the occult and witchcraft… in the vein of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist“. So, a big change from […]

Next DC TV Crossover Announced

The crossover among the DC TV shows Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow last year apparently did well enough that they’re doing another one. (Supergirl was part of last year’s, but that show’s involvement was minimal. That will change this year.) “Invasion!” featured the invading alien Dominators and teamed up all the main characters from the four shows. Now comes the following promotion for the next event. “Crisis on Earth-X” uses the “Crisis” phrasing that first was used in […]

I’d Forgotten There Was Going to Be a Krypton TV Show

It’s an obvious idea, given the success of Gotham, going into its fourth season on Fox, but I’d completely forgotten that Syfy will be running Krypton next year. Like Gotham, which explores the famous setting before Batman became Batman, Krypton is set two generations (which they’re equating to 200 years) before Superman’s home planet blows up. Here’s the short Comic-Con teaser trailer: Why, though? Gotham City is interesting, and there are tons of well-known characters who can be hinted at. […]
