‘Game of Thrones’: Second Prequel in the Works at HBO prequel-works-at-hbo- 1239281

The pilot, which is near a deal with the premium cable network, would focus on House Targaryen.

Sources confirm to The Hollywood Reporter that the premium cable network is near a deal for a pilot order for a prequel set 300 years before the events of the flagship series that tracks the beginnings and the end of House Targaryen. Ryan Condal (Colony) and Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin will pen the script for the drama, which is based on Martin’s book Fire & Blood.

As ‘South Park’ Gets Renewed Through 2022, Matt Stone and Trey Parker Also Have New Movie Ideas 2022-matt-stone-trey-parker-have-new-movie-ideas- 1238778

The duo is floating some “really f—ing killer ideas” (not ‘South Park’- related) for a new theatrical release.

Ever since South Park premiered in August 1997, the show has fielded complaints from concerned parents and advocacy groups who’ve occasionally asked Comedy Central to pull the cartoon from air. For decades, Trey Parker and Matt Stone have laughed and shrugged it off. (“People have been talking about cancelling us for 22 fucking years,” Parker says).

Now the naysayers will have some more time to complain as South Park has just been renewed by Comedy Central through 2022.

Segment 2: Fall TV Movie Preview

Our Take: It’s our fall TV preview episode and we’ve got some great new and returning shows to discuss today including the heavily anticipated Watchmen and Mandalorian series

That being said in this age of 24/7 streaming and mid season premieres i can’t help but think back to the good old days of…i dunno 5 years ago when you used to get the bulk of your new material all at once in September. The old cycle of September to May with sweeps weeks in November and February giving us a reliable clock of not only when to expect new shows, but really juicy plot lines to draw viewers in. X-Files used to always do their mythology episodes around those times. Buffy and her love triangles or Big Bads. It was cool, it was fun. It made for some great TV memories

Maybe I’m just being nostalgic. Which i guess is also pretty in these days.

VERSUS: Which shows are you looking forward to more

1. Spin-offs: Watchmen or Mandalorian?

2. EnsembleCasts:RiverdaleorWalkingDead.

3. Arrowverse

MAJOR SPOILER For Spider-Man #1 by JJ Abrams, Henry Abrams and Sara Pichelli That No One Saw Coming, Tiger man-1-jj-abrams-henry-sara-pichelli/

Okay, the following contains some seriously strong spoilerage for the upcoming JJ Abrams/Henry Abrams/Sara Pichelli Spider-Man series debuting this week. I haven’t seen a copy, but the people who are talking about this are the kind of people who would know. Not about plot, not about cliffhanger, this is about the very concept of the comic in question.

The Biggest, Baddest Spoilers for The Walking Dead #192

Firstly, I am told by good sources that this is not a PR job. JJ Abrams did actually co-write the comic with his son Henry Abrams. Properly and everything, This is not just Henry playing off his father’s name. He and his father did properly collaborate on this comic book. Jude, you are wrong, you are very wrong.

Secondly, the idea of father and son on the comic is intrinsic to the concept of this Spider-Man series. It is part and parcel of it and may make the comic even more appealing?

Why? Because Spider-Man #1 is not about Peter Parker, Spider- Man.

It is about Ben Parker, Spider-Man. The son of Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson, the inheritor of the Spider-Man identity – and the story is set in the future of the Marvel Universe. Something that had not even been hinted at in preview material. And that means that there are probably blatant lies in the solicitations listed for the first three issues.

Oh and for speculator folk, the first appearance of Ben Parker, son of Pete and Mary Jane was his birth in the future-set MC2 title Spider-Girl #59 by Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz.

MC2 (Marvel Comics 2) is an imprint from Marvel Comics whose comic books depict an alternative future timeline for the Marvel Universe. The imprint was spun off from the events of What If?[1] #105 (February 1998), which was the first appearance of the character Spider-Girl, Spider-Man’s daughter from an alternative future.
