adam_hughes__supergirl__001

CBS has given a series commitment to Warner Bros. TV’s Supergirl.

Based on the DC Comics character, the drama tells the story of Kara Zor-El, who was born on the planet Krypton, but escaped amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she’s been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin Superman. But now, at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.

Arrow and Flash executive producer Greg Berlanti and New Normal’s Ali Adler will write and executive-produce with Sarah Schechter.

The one-hour drama is just one in a long line of comic book properties that are either coming to or are currently on television. For its part, Warner Bros. will have five primetime comic book series on the air this season, including Arrow, The Flash, Constantine, Gotham and midseason entry iZombie. The studio also has Titans and Lucifer in development. Over at Marvel, ABC has Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the female-fronted Agent Carter, while Netflix has Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist.

See The Cover of Marvel’s Deathlok #2 By Tom Whalen

When Marvel Comics announced their new Avengers NOW! initiative, there were a few big bullet-point announcements. Thor’s a woman; the Falcon is the new Captain America; Iron Man’s getting a Genius-Bar costume change. But for a certain kind of comic book fan, the most important part of the announcement was: Deathlok.

The cyborg hero first appeared four decades ago, but 2014 has seen a veritable Deathlok renaissance. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. put its own spin on the character, transforming J. August Richards’ superpowered Mike Peterson into a scarred killing machine. And in October, Marvel is launching a new Deathlok ongoing series, written by Nathan Edmondson and drawn by Mike Perkins, focusing on sleeper agent Henry Hayes.

Here is the variant cover of Deathlok #2, illustrated by artist Tom Whalen, creator of countless alternate movie posters for MONDO.

Funko Announces Guardians of The Galaxy Dancing Groot Pop! Vinyl Figure

warvzisorcs0daofxedh

Fans of Marvel Studios’ “Guardians of the Galaxy” are getting their wish fulfilled: a dancing Groot toy.

The charming character, who is seen wiggling to Michael Jackson in the film will be turned into a collectible figure by Funko through its Pop! vinyl toy line.

Marvel and Funko announced the bobble-head figure on Friday via their social media accounts, with Marvel saying “It’s real! The first official Dancing Groot toy, from the amazing folks at Funko.”

“Guardians” director James Gunn actually is the one performing the dance moves, which were then re-rendered as Groot in the final film. Vin Diesel voices the character.

The dancing character wound up stealing the final scene in the film, which Gunn had initially planned to place after the end credits. He wound up moving up the sequence when it proved just too cute to have audiences miss, he has said in interviews.
