Warner Bros. and the CW have released a brand new image of Grant Gustin in full costume as THE FLASH.
AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. is back from its Winter Olympic vacation with the first episode in its “Uprising” event- ‘T.A.H.I.T.I.’ Skye is in a bad way and the team has to go to extreme, morally conflicting measures to save her. Our full review is available now on MMM TV!
AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D return after a hiatus was not greeted with fanfare as it drew a 1.8 rating in the 18-49 year old demographic and 5.46 million viewers overall (courtesy of tvbythenumbers). Both, easily season lows, with the looming cliffhanger, Bill Paxton appearance, or new branded, but meaningless, “Uprising” added to the title.
Warner Bros. Television and The CW have released the first official image of Grant Gustin in his costumed glory as THE FLASH. Gustin, the title character in the upcoming CW series, is currently filming the show’s pilot episode. The series will also star Tom Cavanaugh, Jesse L. Martin, and Candice Patton.
Marvel is going to shine a light on the past, present, and future of its cinematic universe for all to see. MARVEL STUDIOS: ASSEMBLING A UNIVERSE will air on ABC on Tuesday, March 18, at 8:00pm (7:00pm Central). The hour-long special will profile the inception of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and feature interviews with filmmakers, icons, and famous fans.
Earlier today, an assembly of Marvel, Disney, Netflix, and Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced filming for Marvel’s upcoming Netflix original series will begin this summer. Cameras for the DEFENDERS team up event and the four individual series of DAREDEVIL, JESSICA JONES, LUKE CAGE, and IRON FIST will roll primarily in New York. The nearly 60 one-hour episodes to be filmed will make the DEFENDERS brand the largest film or television production in the history of the state.
Deadline reports the upcoming Fox series GOTHAM has found its James Gordon in Ben McKenzie. McKenzie, who once voiced The Dark Knight in the animated BATMAN: YEAR ONE, will play Gordon in his younger detective days in the comic book cop drama. The series will also introduce some of Batman’s famous foes.
The casting of McKenzie is a massive early win for GOTHAM. The actor turned in outstanding work in the underrated TNT drama SOUTHLAND, in which McKenzie played an officer in the Los Angeles Police Department. He should excel in making the transition from beat cop to slightly seasoned detective.
If you’re not already, start getting excited.
A little late this week, but tvbythenumbers reported that AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. had a 2.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 6.62 million viewers overall. That’s the fourth episode in a row with ratings in the same general range, clearly establishing a stable trend in the ratings. Coming off a bit of a hiatus (and heading into a Winter Olympics one) that’s a good solid sign.
