NBC's 'Heroes Reborn' drops the cheerleader, but can't save world (or itself) from repetition. Our early spoiler-free review, before the superhero series takes flight once more in Thursday's premiere!
NBC's Heroes Reborn will finally go through with its revival this coming fall, but already the cast and crew are on hand at Comic-Con 2015 to preview an extended trailer and dish on the new Tim Kring superhero saga. We're on hand for the panel, so what can we learn from Heroes Reborn?
After a vague announcement way back in February 2014, NBC’s Heroes has finally made good on its threat to return as the revived Heroes Reborn. No mere teaser, our first full footage sees plenty of heroes on the run, old and familiar faces alike, while the network’s full synopsis teases a major tragedy, and not just that Heroes Reborn is actually happening.
It just wouldn’t be Comic-Con without further superheroes to toss into the mix, and NBC’s Heroes Reborn is happy to oblige, by way of … you know, still existing. The superhero drama will return to San Diego for Comic-Con 2015 after a number of years away, along with NBC’s Grimm.
The modern animated fare of Disney and Dreamworks are no stranger to TV series tie-ins, but rarely to the film’s stars get Tangled up in the effort. The Disney Channel has done exactly that however, roping in Zachary Levi and Mandy Moore for a new Tangled series to debut in 2017.
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.
