I’m a sucker for anything with Bruce Campbell in it. Get Lucy Lawless and Danny Trejo in the mix, and I’m sold. But I digress. Now, the movie that brought Campbell to the dance might be coming to the small screen.

Creator Sam Raimi has gotten together with Bruce Campbell, Rob Tapert, and Ivan Raimi to develop a TV show based on the classic horror flick. Even better, it looks like Campbell might even be starring in it. Few details are out there at the moment but I can guarantee I’m in.

Booster Gold. Blue Beetle. Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham is looking like a lot of fun. The first actual Lego set based on it is also looking fun. And probably affordable, for once.

Hall H is where all the bombs are dropped at San Diego Comic-Con in the ongoing battle between Marvel and DC on all fronts. Surprisingly, this year’s salvo was remarkably light from both sides.

While DC showed of footage from Batman v Superman and gave us a look at Gal Godot as Wonder Woman, they didn’t announce anything new or discuss other projects for the big screen. The same was true for the TV side which discussed projects on their way this fall but nothing new beyond that.

image

Marvel was no different. They talked about Ant-Man and Avengers 2, and only announced that a very expected Guardians of the Galaxy sequel is on the way. TV-wise, they talked about Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter but didn’t mention the various Netflix series they’re working on.

This seemed odd for both companies. Rather reputable rumors surfaced about a slate of DC movies to be announced at SDCC 2014 with not a word mentioned by the time the con was over. Marvel keeps dropping release dates without movies attached to them, leaving fans to guess at what they might be

If both DC and Marvel want to keep people on board, keep them in the loop with a clear plan that’s executed well. That’s a big part of why Phase One for Marvel was such a success though subsequent movie phases are looking less and less organized. And DC certainly isn’t coming across any better in their strategy, such as it is. Not rolling their TV and film offerings into one universe might prove to be a mistake.

Regardless, be clear in your plans. Leaving fans in the dark builds frustrations, not hype. And a little reassurance might be a good thing considering the ongoing changes to movies we thought were in the bag like Ant-Man.

After years of legal blah blah, Fox and Warner Bros. have sorted things out and the classic Batman ‘66 TV series is finally coming out in one glorious Blu-ray box set on November 11th. 

image

All 120 episodes will be in one big box, with a regular and collector’s edition. Each version will have bonus materials but only the collector’s edition will have super swanky extras like a scrapbook featuring photos from Adam West’s personal archives. 

The last time I was this excited for a box set, a fake suitcase filled with Marvel movies was announced.

While I was unable to attend SDCC this year, the internet was happy to provide a selection of photos related to the new Batman from this year’s con. They show off Affleck in the cowl and give us a better look at piece of his Bat-gear. He might just be the Caped Crusader Batman v Superman needs..

Not normally something I’d reblog but…well… look at them. I’M NOT MADE OF STONE.

Star Wars: Rebels will be Disney’s first TV contribution to the mythology since buying up Lucasfilm. So far, I’m not a fan of the look of the animation but I wasn’t at first with Clone Wars and that show grew on me. Rebels starts this October on Disney XD. We can pass judgement on it then.
