With so much comic based film and TV news coming at us at a seemingly alarming rate, who has the time to keep up? I do! Here’s what I deemed important today.
With the Avengers sequel only a few months away, Marvel is beginning to push the film in a big way. Today sees the release of the first TV spot, featuring seen and previously unseen footage of the Earth’s mightiest heroes in action. And a lot more Ultron.
Today also sees some new casting for AKA Jessica Jones. Deadline brings the news that Rachel Taylor has signed on to play Jessica’s best friend, Patricia Walker, aka Patsy Walker. Patricia “Trish” Walker is a syndicated radio talk show host, as well as former child model and TV star, who helps Jessica “embark on the most dangerous case” of her career. Could we be seeing Hellcat on our small screen in the near future?
Fox has released a trailer for next week’s Arrow. The final episode of the three part “Brick” storyline sees Ollie returning to Starling City, as well as the return of some other familiar faces.
DC/Warner Bros. are jumping right into Supergirl, with more casting news every other day it seems. This week it was announced that Necessary Roughness‘ Mehcad Brooks will star as Jimmy Olsen, a world renowned photographer and possible love interest to our heroine, Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist).
And we leave you this week with a Trailer for upcoming episodes of The Flash.
