‘Justice League’: Danny Elfman To Compose Score
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Danny Elfman

Now that Joss Whedon has taken on the responsibility of completing production on Justice League in time for its release this fall following Zack Snyder‘s departure from the movie due to a death in his family, he has brought on the always amazing Danny Elfman to compose the score for the much-anticipated DC Films blockbuster.

The hiring of Elfman comes just as Whedon is about to commence with the filming of additional scenes in London. Obviously this isn’t Elfman’s first time creating original music for a big-budget superhero movie; his score for Tim Burton’s first Batman in 1989 captured the film’s madness, melancholy, adventure, and Gothic atmosphere perfectly and continues to influence composers to this day. He also created the themes for the first TV series of The Flash, which aired for one season from 1990-1991, and Batman: The Animated Series.

Zack Snyder Steps Down As Director Of ‘Justice League’ After Family Tragedy

Zack Snyder

We’d like to joke and poke fun at how the term “creative differences” gets used a lot as a reason why a director walks out on a project. But there are times where it’s for reasons other than that. Sometimes, it’s very personal. For Zack Snyder, he’s stepping away from directing Justice League to be with his family after his daughter, Autumn Snyder, committed suicide in March. More on the story below and how it will affect the post-production of the Justice League.

Joss Whedon To Write and Direct ‘Batgirl’ For WB
eelyajekiM   |  

Batgirl

So much for superhero fatigue. The genre continues to dominate at the box office and no matter which side of the studio you are on, as long as it is successful we will be getting more of these films.

But after a few missteps, WB is ready to do some course correction by hiring the right directors – or at least getting out of their way. In the latest inspiring hire, WB is close to a deal with Joss Whedon to write, direct, and produce Batgirl. Which seems fitting since he was working with DC on a Wonder Woman movie before Marvel snatched him up for two Avengers films. More on the story below.

20 Great ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ Quotes
Olympus Athens   |  

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Cast

Twenty years ago Buffy the Vampire Slayer season 1 episode 1 aired on the The WB to modest ratings. The story of the chosen one, a teenage girl destined to protect the world from vampires (and more), resonated with audiences long past when the show ended. I have watched all of the episodes over and over, and although I cannot recreate that magic of when I watched the episodes for the first time, sharing the series with someone new is the next best thing. One of the reasons Buffy was so successful was the witty banter the characters let loose in the face of this dangerous life. My list is not complete. I can probably write a list of 200 quotes, and still not be done, but I have chosen ones that really resonate with me. Some are not exactly quotes and are more dialogue moments, but I think you will enjoy them anyway.

“In every generation there is a chosen one. She alone will stand against the vampires the demons and the forces of darkness. She is the slayer.”

Fox Says They’re Open To A ‘Firefly’ Revival
The Movie God   |  

Firefly's Serenity

Fans of Joss Whedon‘s space western Firefly have been waiting for news like this for well over a decade. Fox says that they’re actually open to reviving the long-dead show.

The news came out of the Television Critics Association 2017 press tour about a month ago, but flew under most radars at the time. Fox Broadcasting president of entertainment David Madden was on hand for a panel, and the status of many projects were discussed. When Firefly came up, Madden surprisingly said they were open to reviving the show, under one condition: Whedon has to be up for doing it.

‘Firefly’ Cast Talks Netflix Not Picking Them Up Yet, Scene We Never Got To See
The Movie God   |  

Firefly

Netflix has been known to bring a deceased TV show back from the dead a time or two over the years. Because of this geeks everywhere, myself very much included, have wondered why they haven’t resurrected one of the most obvious dead series: the criminally canceled Firefly, which wasn’t given long enough to find its audience in a time well before DVRs and on demand and mobile viewing, when the TV viewer numbers were all that mattered. Netflix has touched on why it’s not a show they feel (or felt, a few years back anyway) is right for them, but nothing more has been said of it.

Some of Firefly‘s actual cast members wonder the very same things we fans do about the show, as well. A mini cast reunion with Nathan Fillion, Jewel Staite, Adam Baldwin, Sean Maher, and Summer Glau went down recently at which they discussed Netflix, a scene we never got to see, and more.

See what they had to say below.

These “Who Will Die” promos for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.Fallen Agent are killing me. Or someone else, I guess. They have been teasing an “earth-shattering” finale and death for so many weeks, that I’m actually looking forward to seeing who they kill off.
