Marvel’s Jessica Jones Is Here!

NetflixJessicaJones Netflix Original: Marvel’s Jessica Jones

As you surely are dialed in to the comic book culture at this point, you’ve surely heard of Marvel’s Jessica Jones, the Netflix Original series that dropped today. Reviews are coming in, and they bode well. And considering the fact that this series will be unavoidably compared to the recent Netflix Original series, Daredevil, the praise is high. Pull quotes!

This is by far the best superhero show we’ve seen in a long time, mostly because it isn’t really about superpowers or catching villains.

– TheGuardian.com

And another literate publication:

Marvel’s success in comics, film and TV has always come from showcasing superheroes with world-class abilities struggling to handle human-size problems. Netflix’s Jessica Jones is a proud addition to that pantheon, wrapping one of the best TV shows of the year in a woman’s struggle to defeat the abuser who nearly ruined her life.

– Eric Deggans, NPR.com

Those are just a couple opinions from trained professionals. Check it out and decide for yourself if Jessica Jones is a totally badass show/character.

New Trailers: Hail, Caesar! and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

The first trailers have just dropped for these upcoming films that look poised to scratch some very specific entertainment itches.

Four-time Oscar-winning filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen (No Country for Old Men, True Grit, Fargo) write and direct Hail, Caesar!, an all-star comedy set during the latter years of Hollywood’s Golden Age. Starring Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Alden Ehrenreich, Ralph Fiennes, Jonah Hill, Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton and Channing Tatum, Hail, Caesar! follows a single day in the life of a studio fixer who is presented with plenty of problems to fix.

Read more on the soon-to-be-classic Coen Bros. film here.

Also, if you like Pride and Prejudice, and if you like Zombies, you will love Pride and Prejudice and Zombies:

Marvel Studios: Disassemble

Marvel Studios Logo

Marvel Studios

Some significant changes at Marvel Studios have come to light this week, and this may not be the last of them.

Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios, and the man best known for helping to establish the Marvel movie franchise as we know it, used to report to Marvel CEO Isaac “Ike” Perlmutter. However, news broke this week that, for reasons not yet entirely clear, Feige has managed to not only shrug off the apparently uncomfortable yoke of Perlmutter, but he also managed to dissolve the Marvel Creative Committee. This committee, the members of which included Marvel giants such as Joe Quesada and Brian Michael Bendis, was intended to give creative advice on Marvel projects, not only major motion pictures, but TV, video games, and other franchising.

It’s hard to be certain whether the MCC was doing more harm or good. There are reports that the MCC had some difficulties with film directors such as Joss Whedon, Edgar Wright in the recent past, but there is apparently also some evidence that Feige’s failure to account for suggestions made by the MCC led to extensive and costly re-shoots on Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. These expensive, avoidable re-shoots no doubt contributed to Disney declaring Age of Ultron a failure. Considering that, and the fact that the MCC gave us the 2008 Iron Man film with Robert Downey, Jr., it could be safe to say the good outweighed the bad.

At this point, Feige now reports to Disney’s chief, Alan Horn. And no one else.

Further reading will likely make this sound like a power move by Feige, and the tip of a big, company-shaking iceberg. But for now, we must wait to see how things shake out and what comes next.

Stay tuned, True Believers.

Yvonne Craig, TV’s Batgirl, Dies at 78

Yvonne Craig as Batgirl

This is a tragic time for fans of the 1966 TV series Batman. After a battle with breast cancer, Yvonne Craig finally gets to rest.

Some informative coverage is available at NPR’s website. She was a talented beauty, and she will be missed.

Casper Crump Cast as The CW’s Vandal Savage

Casper Crump to play Vandal Savage

The Big Bad for the much anticipated new CW superhero series, Legends of Tomorrow, has been cast. Casper Crump (too cool to be his real name) will bring Vandal Savage to life for the CW. He will likely first appear on Legends of Tomorrow, but with upcoming characters making their first partial appearances on related series (e.g. https://youtu.be/9x0b1_Syw-E) he may pop up elsewhere before Legends even premieres.
