After much anticipation it has finally been revealed who the 12th Doctor will be. There has been much speculation as to who will be playing this iconic role. BBC America did a great job with setting this announcement up quite well by playing the final episode of the 10th Doctor, David Tennat. It was a very emotional way to get this started.
All of us have our favorite Doctors. I am sure there are many of you who are sad to see Matt Smith go. However, if you recall, there was quite a bit of backlash over the choice of Smith 4 years ago. I am interested in see what the overall reaction is to the new Doctor.
With no further ado, the 12th Doctor is………..
For those of you who don’t know, Peter has been in many British shows including Torchwood and a previous Episode of Doctor Who. Show runner, Steven Moffat, said that Peter was up for the role of 11th Doctor, but it just didn’t feel right. Now is Peter’s time.
Interesting side note... Peter Capaldi, was in World War Z and played a doctor for the World Health Organization.... Doctor W.H.O. love it!
Do you think this a good choice?
Yesterday we learned that The CW was looking to to develop another DC comic TV series based on The Flash. Apparently the character will be introduced in the next season of Arrow before he gets his spinoff series.
Arrow writers Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns will be writing the script for the pilot.
We've now got a few more updates on the series. According to Deadline, the character is set to show up in the 8th or 9th episode of Arrow season 2, and they are going to start looking for an actor to take on the role this week. Berlanti had this to say in a statement,
"Barry Allen’s story always has been a favorite of mine, as well as of Andrew Kreisberg and Geoff Johns. We wanted everyone to know about the show as that process commenced. We think it fits well both in terms of Arrow and as a stand-alone series."Kreisberg added in a separate interview with THR:
"When we first meet Barry Allen, he's just a forensic scientist … an ordinary man. Part of the fun for the audience … is to see how we view our Arrow take on the Flash legacy. Some of it will feel very familiar to DC Comics, some of it hopefully will feel different, fresh and exciting. The same way we approached Arrow is the same way we're approaching Barry."He goes on to say that The Flash will be wearing his a version of his classic suit:
"No sweat suits or strange code names; he will be The Flash."As for the Wonder Woman series they were developing, Amazon, that's been put on hold. CW executive Mark Pedowitz explained,
“Amazon is on pause (as) the script is not exactly what we wanted, and with an iconic character like Wonder Woman, we have to get it right.”Hopefully they can take The Flash and turn it into an cool series that we can enjoy!
Yesterday the net showed you the teaser trailer/clip for the new DC superhero series coming to The CW, Arrow. The network has released a full promo trailer for the Green Arrow series offering us a little bit more footage from the series and story details. It's going to be an awesome action packed series, and I think it looks like it will be worth watching.
The show stars Stephen Arnell in the title role, and it looks like he's going to do a pretty solid job. It still would have been cool if they got Smallville's Justin Hartley to reprise the role though.
Here's the Synopsis:
After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns home to Starling City, his devoted mother Moira, much-beloved sister Thea, and best friend Tommy welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he’s become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was. Most particularly, he seeks reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Laurel Lance. As Oliver reconnects with those closest to him, he secretly creates the persona of Arrow – a vigilante – to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory. By day, Oliver plays the role of a wealthy, carefree and careless philanderer he used to be – flanked by his devoted chauffeur/bodyguard, John Diggle – while carefully concealing the secret identity he turns to under cover of darkness. However, Laurel’s father, Detective Quentin Lance, is determined to arrest the vigilante operating in his city. Meanwhile, Oliver’s own mother, Moira, knows much more about the deadly shipwreck than she has let on – and is more ruthless than he could ever imagine.
The show hits The CW this fall on Wednesdays from 8:00-9:00 PM. Watch the new trailer and let us know if you think it looks good!
The fans of Community came out to support their favorite TV show to save it when it was in trouble. Not only did they save it from going off the air, but they helped it land another season! NBC has officially decided to bring the hilarious comedy series back for another season of greatness! The fourth season only got a 13-episode order this time around, but at least it will be back!
There's still no word on if series creator Dan Harmon and actor Chevy Chase will be back. I hope they decide to come back. As this actually may end up being the last season of the series.
The shows star Joel McHale tweeted the following,
Dear #Community fans, You are the best people in the world. We’re renewed for 13 eps. Couldn’t have done it without you.
