Superhero TV
« on: May 13, 2014, 02:09:21 PM »
Started a general superhero TV thread because none of these shows last more than one season.

Except Arrow which everybody seems to love, yet I don't know a single person who watches it... not even my DC comics obsessed sister.

Anyway, they're spinning off a Flash show which is teased at the end of this preview.

Most superhero shows last more than a season! We have a long tradition of shows surviving. Hell, isn't Smallville in year 10?

That said, you're right... I'm hard pressed to find a real human being who actually watches these shows.

I tried watching Arrow...it was so bad.  Yet I couldn't stop watching.  Like watching a train wreck in slow motion over and over again.  The acting was horrible, stunts horrible, story line HORRIBLE.  The only thing that kept me coming back was to find out what happened to him on the island.  However, even that wasn't enough for me to got back to it, after Mrs. Sirharles made me stop for a few days.  I got through 7 or 8 episodes but that was it.

Probably.

Also, John Wesley Shipp is playing Barry Allen's dad in the CW's new Flash show. Kind of cool.

Marvel Studios and Netflix have found their Matt Murdock. After carefully scouting the scene for the perfect actor to headline their Daredevil series, they've decided on Charlie Cox. The British thespian was already a frontrunner, and now he's officially landed the part.

According to Variety, Cox will take over the role that Ben Affleck previously played in the 2003 feature film Daredevil. The Netflix series is just one of many Marvel properties that will highlight a character from New York's Hell's Kitchen area. Others include Iron Fist, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage.

Cox is best known for appearing on HBO's Boardwalk Empire, as well as Downton Abbey. He also starred in the 2007 film Stardust opposite Claire Danes. Prior to this announcement, Daredevil was rocked by the abrupt departure of showrunner Drew Goddard, who opted to work on Sony's Spider-Man spinoff Sinister Six instead. But, no fear, he was quickly replaced by Steven S. DeKnight (Starz's Spartacus). 

Daredevil is expected to run for 13 episodes. The series, as well as the solo outings for Iron Fist, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, will lead to a team-up miniseries event, called The Defenders. It's the Avengers model, but for the small screen.

Netflix's Daredevil might be shaping up to be something cool.

The pilot for The Flash leaked! Hitting it tomorrow night, which is the first free chance I have because I can no longer watch TV all day at work.

Internet sad face.

So....The Flash.

Entertaining, but horrifically flawed and clumsy. It's just trying to copy Agents of SHIELD, and not doing it well. Having that entirely horrifically pointless scene with The Arrow hurt like hell.

But... Thoughts RC?

So I haven't watched the Flash. You put it in DB for me and I just didn't have the will.

However, This Daredevil show by Netflix is getting more and more curious.

“True Blood” star Deborah Ann Woll is trading supernaturals for superheroes and has been cast as the female lead in “Daredevil.”

Woll will play Karen Page, the love interest to blind crimefighter Daredevil himself Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) in the 13-episode series. Vincent D'Onofrio, Rosario Dawson, Elden Henson and Peter Shinkoda are also series regulars.

I've been ignoring Gotham because it looks retarded.

But, today, I learned that SEAN FUCKING PERTWEE is playing Alfred. So...yes. I'm watching. No matter what.
