Superhero television shows are all the craze right now. Take for example all four of Netflix/Marvel shows, ABC’s Agents of SHIELD, The CW’s Supergirl and The Flash, NBC’s Powerless, FX’s Legion, and Fox’s upcoming X-Men series. But so far, Fox’s other superhero show, Gotham, set in the Batman universe and halfway through season 3, is the show that fans are truly going crazy for. ShowBizCafe was invited to a special private screening of the spring season premiere with the cast at the Whitby Hotel in New York City. It was followed by Q&A with members of the ensemble and a pre and post cocktail reception. We were lucky enough to sit down with not just with star Ben McKenzie who plays the young Commissioner, but with other well-known actors in the series as well. Our Q&A below…Read More
The second trailer for Warner Bros. and DC’s Justice League trailer is here and is beginning to become more credible with each footage that is released. Still no sign of Superman which I’m assuming will be the BIG reveal within the movie. Though Amy Adam’s Lois Lane does make a quick cameo. What do you guys think so far of the trailer? Will you go see it or are you done with DC and their disappointments? Leave comments below.
I can’t believe I’m seeing this trailer. This film wasn’t even supposed to be made. It was some fantasy amongst comic-book heads. There was talk of production maybe happening in 2020, but in 2016!? YES!! DC’s equivalent of The Avengers premiered at the San Diego Comic-Con today and with no Superman in sight, Bruce Wayne wrestles up Aquaman, Flash, Cyborg and Wonder Woman to fight an unseen enemy. But again, where is Superman? The tone of the film will be on the jocular side, much like Marvel, but the look is straight up DC. This trailer is not breathtaking or surreal, perhaps because it’s not the official trailer? but it establishes the physical presence of the core characters, including Cyborg (I’ll be rooting for him above all others). Take a look, let me know what you think of the trailer!
The big news this week is that Zack Snyder is directing the new JUSTICE LEAGUE movie, which is DC Comics’ answer to The Avengers. In my weekly radio segment on the Luis Jimenez Show, “Lengua, Cámara y Acción,” Luis and I chat about which movie will audiences ultimately like better? Also, GEORGE CLOONEY is engaged and women are complaining he married ugly. And finally, Knicks President PHIL JACKSON is a bad tipper? I did the math and he left the appropriate tip, so why’s the NY Post pissed at him? Listen to the radio segment and tell us what you think!Read More
