Pushing dangerously past the point of pranking shelf-life, NBC’s Heroes Reborn continues to insist on itself as an actual thing that will exist on television. Now with Upfronts 2015 in play, the network’s most elaborate joke even has his own photos, and a tentative weekly scheduling for the fall.
Initially announced at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, NBC’s Heroes Reborn has had something of a staggered development, between Jack Coleman’s return as Noah Bennett, Chuck star Zachary Levi’s addition, and, well … that’s it. Until now! Once Upon a Time and Pirates star Robbie Kay has joined the Heroes cast, cementing that this thing is definitely still happening. Really!
As somebody regrettably reminded NBC they’d announced ‘Heroes Reborn’ back in 2014, the rebirth of the once-mighty superhero drama continues powering up for its summer premiere. Enter the first trailer-teaser aired during the Super Bowl, as HRG takes on his most fearsome enemy yet: Chuck Bartowski!
Just when it seemed enough time had past that NBC might simply have forgotten its ill-advised ‘Heroes’ revival ‘Heroes Reborn,’ someone went and reminded them. Following the lone casting of original series star Jack Coleman, the peacock now reports that ‘Chuck’ star Zachary Levi will lead the new incarnation of Tim Kring’s ‘Heroes’ in a major role.
Who could forget Sif and the Warriors Three from 'Thor'? Not Marvel, which is why this quartet will be back for 'Thor 2,' and you can get a closer look at two of these Asgardians, Volstagg and Fandral, in the new posters for the sequel.
Only twelve days into its thirty-day campaign and the 'Veronica Mars' Kickstarter movie project has nearly doubled its projected goal, creating a high benchmark for the next TV series to attempt funding from a crowd-sourcing campaign. While a number of TV creators and stars have proposed Kickstarter campaigns of their own to follow 'Veronica Mars,' is NBC's dearly-departed 'Chuck' pulling ahead of the pack? Find out what Zachary Levi has to say inside!
We recently reported that James Gunn and Marvel were testing a handful of actors for the lead in 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' but now the director is saying you shouldn't believe everything you read because those reports are not accurate.
Recently we reported that James Gunn's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' was testing five actors for the lead. Joel Edgerton, Jack Huston, Jim Sturgess, Lee Pace and Eddie Redmayne were all up for the role of Peter Quill, a half-human, half-alien who brings the Guardians together. It now looks like the race is down to two people: Jim Sturgess and new contender Zachary Levi.
Now that 'Chuck' is over, it makes star Zachary Levi a free agent (as it were), and it looks like Marvel has their eyes on him to co-star in 'Thor 2.' Josh Dallas had to leave the film because of a television commitment, and Levi is their go-to to replace him.
