‘Constantine’ To Live On As Animated Show On CW Seed
Olympus Athens   |  

Constantine NBC series

NBC’s Constantine ended after one season, due to the ratings not making the cut. The show about snarky, demon hunter John Constantine developed a cult following. Back in 2015, there was a huge campaign to Save Constantine. Although that didn’t work, John Constantine (Matt Ryan) guested on Arrow in season 4, as an old friend of Oliver’s (Stephen Amell) who came and helped bring Sarah’s (Caity Lotz) soul back to her newly resurrected body, after taking a dip in the Lazarus Pit. It seemed as that was all we would get, with a tiny opening perhaps for future guest appearances.

Now Constantine is back!

‘Little Shop Of Horrors’ Remake To Be Directed By ‘Arrow,’ ‘The Flash’ Creator
The Movie God   |  

Little Shop of Horrors

Back in 1986 Frank Oz, director of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, What About Bob?, Bowfinger, The Score, and Death at a Funeral; as well as the voice actor behind Yoda, Muppets Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, and Animal; and Grover, Bert, and Cookie Monster on Sesame Street among others, directed Little Shop of Horrors. The movie was based on the off-Broadway musical of the same name from Alan Menken and writer Howard Ashman, which was itself based on the low-budget 1960 Roger Corman movie The Little Shop of Horrors.

Now a new remake of the title is in development at Warner Brothers, and they’ve found a director for the project. It’s being reported that Greg Berlanti will direct the remake, from a screenplay written by Matthew Robinson.

Last night was the 2nd night of The CW’s epic 4-show crossover of Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and they are in the midst of an Alien invasion!

Last night, Barry Allen and Cisco Ramon (Grant Gustin, Carlos Valdes) stopped by Supergirl via wormhole to recruit Kara (Melissa Benoist) for a slight problem. The episode was good, but there was definitely not enough crossover – merely the last 2 minutes. Tonight’s episode of The Flash was the payoff as the gang was all here.

Last week on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Ray turned Nate Heywood (Brandon Routh, Nick Zano) into Steel with a tinkered Nazi super serum, but he cannot control it. Vixen (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) stows away on the ship, after trying to kill Mick (Dominic Purcell). She blames him for Rex Tyler’s death. Nate and Ray ended up in 17th Century Japan, and the rest of the team followed. So much fun! There were ninjas and a bit of romance. They helped defeat an evil shogun, to secure the future of Katana.

Interview: ‘Legends Of Tomorrow’ Cinematographer Mahlon Todd Williams
Olympus Athens   |  

DC's Legends of Tomorrow Todd Israel

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow burst onto The CW in January, 2016 – a spinoff of a spinoff (ArrowThe FlashLoT). These time-traveling legends were tasked by Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) with capturing the evil Vandal Savage. The series, which also currently stars Victor Garber, Franz Drameh, Caity Lotz, Nick Zano, Dominic Purcell, and Brandon Routh, is just bunches of fun in time-traveling giftwrap.

What strikes one most about this series, are the settings in which our heroes spiral through. That magic is spun by the equally legendary cinematography duo of David Geddes and Mahlon Todd Williams. I got the unique opportunity to speak with Mahlon last week about filming in Vancouver, how he got started, and what it’s like filming this crazy, superhero, legendary, time-traveling show.

Check out the interview below.

Legends Of Tomorrow
Season 2 Episode 3: “Shogun”
Directed by Kevin Tancharoen
Written by Phil Klemmer & Grainne Godfree
Starring Arthur Darvill, Victor Garber, Brandon Routh, Caity Lotz, Franz Drameh, Dominic Purcell, Nick Zano
Created by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Marc Guggenheim, Phil Klemmer, Sarah Schechter
The CW
Air Date: Thursday, October 27th, 2016, 8:00pm

Last week on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, they ran into The Justice Society of America in 1942. And by “ran into” I mean “got captured by.” Nate Haywood (Nick Zano) was giddy because he met his grandfather, Commander Steel (Matthew MacCaull), and tried to prove the familial connection through his dog-tags, and personal stories. We saw two of our favorite presently dead villains in the past, Eobard Thawne and Damian Darhk (Matt Letscher and Neal McDonough), in cahoots with each other and the Nazis, for nukes and a super serum. Sarah (Caity Lotz) tried to kill Darhk to prevent Laurel’s death, and Thawne ended up killing Rex Tyler (Patrick J. Adams), spurring Vixen (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) to blame Mick (Dominic Purcell).

The CW
Air Date: Wednesday, October 26th, 2016, 8:00pm

Last week’s Arrow was one of my favorites, as former WWE wrestler, Cody Rhodes, joined the hall of villains as Sampson – a “stardust” dealer, who battled against the Green Arrow (Stephen Amell) in the handsomest fight in town. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) confessed her part in Haven Rock to Rory (Joe Dinicol). Diggle (David Ramsey) hallucinated Deadshot in the meanest audience trick, but wants to stay in jail for something he didn’t do, as penance for something he did – kill his brother. Lyla (Audrey Marie Anderson) was not having it, and went to get Oliver.

Spoilers below.
