Howard The Duck

Although it has taken some time for Marvel Television to find success, they have done so by getting out of the MCU’s way and existing in their own space. Sure there may be some slight nods to the unseen cinematic characters they co-exist with, but for the most part, these shows are successful because they build their own brand. While Netflix has been quick to cancel some of their Marvel shows in the past, Hulu is in the process of developing their own shows just as quickly.

Various reports that are coming out of the winter TCAs are confirming that Marvel Television is developing animated shows based on Howard the Duck, M.O.D.O.K., Tigra & Dazzler Show, and Hit-Monkey. And they will be bringing in some very funny comedians to oversee these shows. From Kevin Smith and Chelsea Handler to Patton Oswalt and Jordan Blum. More on the report below.

Kevin Smith Reveals Zack Snyder Had Plans For A ‘Justice League’ Trilogy

Justice League

Zack Snyder’s true vision for Justice League never came to fruition. Designed as a two-part film, Justice League would be the first time that DC heroes banded together to fight off cosmic threats. Unfortunately, lackluster films that came before it forced the two parts to become one part. Not only that, but Snyder left the project after principal photography, leaving Joss Whedon to take care of the post-production work. But with all of the last-minute reshoots and mustache gate, the film ended up being a major disappointment. Which is probably why many asked to see a Snyder cut well after it failed to meet expectations.

But never let it be said that Snyder did not have a bold vision for the DCEU. In fact, what was rumored to be a two-part film in the very beginning was actually a trilogy. At least, according to Kevin Smith. More on this below.

Jay and Silent Bob

It’s been nearly two years since Kevin Smith revealed that he had written a sequel to his 2001 comedy Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Now we know that the sequel, titled Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, is officially happening with word that Saban Films and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment Content Group have given the project the greenlight. Saban has acquired the North American rights, while Universal has the foreign rights.

The movie will once again star Jason Mewes and Smith, reprising their roles as Jay and Silent Bob, and will make fun of Hollywood’s obsession with reboots, remakes, and sequels while at the same time being all three itself.

NYCC 2015: Kevin Smith

Filmmaker Kevin Smith posted to his social media accounts today that he survived a “massive” heart attack last night after his stand-up performance at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, CA.

The 47-year-old filmmaker, best known for writing and directing Clerks and Chasing Amy, as well as starring in said films as the latter part of stoner duo Jay and Silent Bob, wrote that he went to the hospital after feeling ill after the first of two planned shows for the night. After cancelling his second performance to seek medical treatment, Smith said that the doctors discovered that he had had a “massive heart attack” with 100% blockage of the LAD artery, aka “the Widow-Maker.”

See below to read Smith’s full Facebook post, where he describes his ordeal and gives his thoughts about this near-death experience.

Jay and Silent Bob

The last four movies that Kevin Smith has worked on as a director—Red State, Tusk, Holidays, and most recently Yoga Hosers—have all been horror movies or have had horror elements. Much different from the comedies and dramedies set in the “View Askewniverse” he’s best known for, such as Clerks, Mallrats, and Dogma. He’s also been involved in a couple of TV shows on The CW recently, directing a couple of episodes of both The Flash and Supergirl.

There’s been talk here and there of returning to his Askewniverse again for Clerks III, a world he hasn’t visited since 2006’s Clerks II. But now Smith has revealed that Clerks III is dead and he’s turned his attention to the most familiar part of the Askewniverse, Jay and Silent Bob, who he’s written a new movie for. Find out what it’s about below.

The Prequels Strike Back: A Fan's Journey

The Prequels Strike Back: A Fan’s Journey
Amazon Instant Video
Directed by Bradley Weatherholt
Official Website | Ministry of Cinema
Not Rated | 80 Minutes
Release Date: September 14, 2016

Midichlorians. The Trade Federation. Watto. The coarseness of sand. Jar-Jar freakin’ Binks. Oh, and you can’t forget…. “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!”

George LucasStar Wars prequels comprise what is possibly the most controversial motion picture trilogy of all time. Despite grossing hundreds of millions of dollars at the box office and selling countless DVD and Blu-ray copies, Episodes I through III remain a serious bone of contention for ferociously devoted fans of the Star Wars universe for many reasons.

Bradley Weatherholt’s Indiegogo-funded documentary The Prequels Strike Back: A Fan’s Journey provides — through a series of insightful and provocative interviews with open-minded admirers of the films and their thematic elements and links to the original trilogy –- a pointed critical analysis of the prequel trilogy’s multitude of perceived narrative and technical flaws. Rather than serve as the set-up for a rude, feature-length rebuttal of the faults that have fueled many a furious blog post or chatroom discussion, detractors of these unjustly-derided intergalactic adventures to look at those faults once more, but placed in different contexts and interpreted through a series of unbiased points-of-view.

NYCC 2015: Kevin Smith

The critics and audience have spoken, and while the former didn’t like it as much as the latter, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was the number one film at the box office. This wouldn’t be the first time that there was a huge disparity between audiences and critics, and it won’t be the last. You’ve already seen our review of the film. And now celebrities are voicing their opinions on it. But one of them may come as a huge surprise.

Following his hosting duties on the DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League special on The CW with DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, Kevin Smith has expressed some of his disappointment in BvS, saying that it lacked joy and that there is a “fundamental lack of understanding of what those characters are about.” See what else he had to say below.
