Arrow Season 3 Trailer Promises Brandon Routh

Arrow season 3 launches on the CW on October 8, and here’s the trailer. Clearly, I have some catching up to do when season 2 comes out on DVD on September 16, since I have no idea which guy on the motorcycle is flirting with Felicity. Oliver, I guess, since he’s kissing her later. Anyway, Black Canary returns, yay, and even more exciting is the introduction of Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer, whom we comic fans know as the shrinking […]

TCM Launches Pre-Code Focus Today

I’m a huge fan of Pre-Code movies, those films put out from 1930-1934, before Hollywood became subject to the Hays Code to maintain morality in its films. These early films tackled difficult subjects for a radically changing culture — the Depression was in effect, people were still arguing about what movies “should” be, sound films were relatively new, and morality, particularly as demonstrated by moviemakers both off- and on-screen, was a matter of much debate. Or, alternately, they showed more […]

Arrow Season 2 Comes to DVD

Arrow: The Complete Second Season is due out on Blu-ray (or DVD) on September 16. I found the first season a pleasant surprise. I haven’t been as big a fan of the second, primarily due to not loving the Deathstroke plot and the continuing island flashbacks, although it’s good to see more done with Black Canary and other female characters. The second season home releases contain 23 episodes, the “Year One” recap episode, commentary, three behind-the-scenes featurettes, deleted scenes, six […]

IDW Wants to Make a Dirk Gently TV Show… And Oh, Yeah, a Comic

IDW, which I think of as a comic publisher, has a film and TV development arm called IDW Entertainment that launched in November 2013. Today, they announced an option in connection with Ideate Media (established in April 2013 by the strategic investment arm of the Government of Malaysia which “develops and seeks out stories, talent and properties suitable to engage global audiences, especially, though not exclusively, stories with Asian elements, settings, and themes”) to turn Douglas Adams’ Dirk Gently’s Holistic […]

DC Releases Gotham Promo Clips

Gotham, the new DC TV series debuting on Fox on September 22, is a dark take on Batman’s supporting cast, focusing on the city and the origins of some of his best-known villains. We won’t see the hero himself, since Bruce Wayne at this point is a little kid; instead, young detective James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) in a corrupt setting is our focus. To explain the concept, DC has released this three-minute promotional video first look: “This is not a […]
