As the 'Avengers 2' trailer leaked online last night about six days earlier than planned, we got our first look at Marvel's latest (and biggest) villain, Ultron, in action. Set the creepy tune of Pinocchio's "I've Got No Strings," we got to see a little bit of what Ultron is all about. And, fresh off that first look, James Spader - the voice and actor behind Ultron - has some words about his cinematic counterpart: "He's really batshit crazy!"
The madness of 2014's Upfront season has come and gone, but that doesn't mean the major networks are without a few bombshells to drop. Sure, we've seen most of the official schedules, but NBC is the first to officially unveil their slate of fall 2014 premieres, surprisingly placing comic adaptation 'Constantine' for an October bow, with Katherine Heigl's TV return 'State of Affairs' moving even further back to November.
Earlier today we saw NBC delivering the first full trailer for its upcoming 'Constantine' adaptation, but the network had plenty more to give in advance of the Upfront presentation tomorrow. Not only has NBC set the basic structure of its fall lineup, breaking up its Thursday comedy lineup and keeping 'Parks and Recreation' on the bench for the moment, but the network has also released full trailers for its other offerings, including Katherine Heigl CIA drama 'State of Affairs,' and 'HIMYM' alum Cristin Milioti's 'A to Z.'
Ratings for NBC crime thriller 'The Blacklist' have proven especially solid across the board for NBC, and with James Spader's prominence inevitable for years to come, is it any wonder the peacock has opted to renew one of its few buzzed-about hits from the 2013-2014 season? Get a pen ready, because 'The Blacklist' will have more names to cross off in season 2!
As we draw closer to Comic-Con 2013, NBC has become the latest network to unveil its full slate of TV panels for the international pop-culture event in San Diego. Among the known presences of 'Hannibal' and 'Revolution,' most exciting is the glorious return of 'Community,' led by its returning creator Dan Harmon!
After wrapping up one of its last major midseason holdings in the 'Hannibal' finale, NBC has officially jumped into fall 2013 territory to set their upcoming premiere schedule. Among the highlights, 'Parks and Recreation' will jump across the pond from D.C. to London for its hour-long sixth season opener, while Jonathan Rhys-Meyer's 'Dracula' will bow in October, understandably.
Yesterday NBC laid out its fall lineup for viewers, retooling its Thursday nights in particular to lead a new comedy block building up to Michael J. Fox's new show, the aptly named 'The Michael J. Fox Show.' Among the new offerings include the long-awaited Johnathan Rhys-Meyers' 'Dracula' and 'Office' vet James Spader's 'The Blacklist,' but how would you like to check out the trailers of NBC's newest series? Get inside for your NBC fall preview!
Fans of 'NBC's 'The Office' are likely glad to be rid of James Spader and his oily Steve Carell replacement character Robert California, but that hasn't stopped 'The Practice' Emmy-winner from finding another home on NBC. New reports claim that Spader has signed on to the lead role of upcoming pilot thriller 'The Blacklist,' but what about the drama seems a bit too close to FOX's 'The Following?'
