DC comics and Warner Bros. have frequently been accused of following Marvel's more successful lead in the last few years, most recently in regards to the blockbuster film franchises on either side, but never has it been more clear than with DC's latest shocker. Just minutes after the debut of Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' Warner Bros. has announced the Batman franchise will return to TV with 'Gotham,' a new FOX drama with Commissioner Gordon at its center.
FOX's time-turning thriller 'Sleepy Hollow' got off to an exceptionally good start this past week in spite of only moderate critical reactions, but the modern headless thriller has really begun to hit the 'Fringe.' FOX favorite John Noble has been announced for a major role on the series to unite with producers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, but how long will our old pal Walter Bishop be sticking around?
We'd be hard pressed to think of anyone topping 'SNL''s brilliant 'Homeland' parody with Anne Hathaway, but 'The Simpsons' will give it its best shot. The long-running FOX animation staple's season 25 premiere on September 29 will see 'SNL' vet Kristen Wiig guest as an FBI agent suspiciously similar to 'Homeland''s Carrie Matheson, the first clip of which hits the manic nail right on the head.
Twenty-five seasons on the air, we'd imagine 'The Simpsons' to have covered just about everything under and shielded from the sun, but it seems our favorite Springfield family has at least one new animation style to boldly go: LEGO! Along with the recent announcement of 'Simpsons'-themed LEGO products, it seems the series itself will get the brick and block treatment in 2014!
It's been a good long while since we've heard anything on the front of 2014 '24' revival 'Live Another Day,' but it seems Jack Bauer may have even more familiar company than Chloe O'Brian when the terrorism-countering agent is called out of retirement once more. Multiple-season love interest Audrey Raines (Kim Raver) is nearing a deal to return for the new season, but what state will '24: Live Another Day' see her in?
It remains to be seen if Amy Poehler will reprise her role opposite Tina Fey as co-host of the 2014 Golden Globes, but we at least know one other gig the 'Parks and Recreation' star will return to in the near future. 'The Simpsons' upcoming 25th season has tapped Amy Poehler to return to her futuristic role as Bart's wife, but who might the character have her eyes on this time around?
Earlier today we heard that the wave of movie-to-TV adaptations had only grown stronger, with the Christian Bale classic 'American Psycho' being brought to the small screen, but we're not out of the woods yet. New reports reveal that 20th Century Fox TV has partnered with New Regency to adapt the story behind 2004 Denzel Washington thriller 'Man on Fire,' as well as graphic novel 'Cyclops.'
After weeks of skirting promos and press releases, 'Glee' season 5 has opened up for a full trailer of its forthcoming September 26 premiere "Love, Love, Love," chock full of Beatles tribute numbers, and little else. The gang is all smiles and songs in the first real run of footage from season 5, but how long until the bottom drops out?
It remains unclear exactly what (new) direction 'Glee' season 5 will take after its first three episodes, though we at least know the long-running FOX musical dramedy will maintain its light heart through the first two episodes of the coming run, paying tribute to The Beatles! The full songlists for premiere episode "Love, Love, Love" and "Tina in the Sky with Diamonds" has arrived, along with a spoilery synopsis of the story to come!
