Looks like the lag has improved significantly. I don't need to reload my page just to see the site anymore. Good job engineers.

Confirmed Canceled

NBC's Dracula has been canceled as well. This one in particular might been painful to see get cancel since it was NBC Entertainment chairman BobGreenblatt's passion project. That's pretty surprising since I usually think of executives as cold and calculating men in a dark room. The guy even worked hard to get Jonathan Rhys Meyers on board.

The Crazy Ones (CBS)

Intelligence (CBS)

Bad Teacher (CBS)

Hostages (CBS)

Friends With Better Lives (CBS)

Confirmed Renewal

The Mentalist

On A brighter note...

Agent Carter has gotten a logo and a plot synopsis. Horray for more female superheroes!

Straight from Marvel.com, the synopsis for the series is as follows:

"Marvel's Agent Carter," starring Captain America's Hayley Atwell follows the story of Peggy Carter. It's 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life--Steve Rogers. Inspired by the feature films "Captain America: The First Avenger" and "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," along with the short "Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter."

@phantomrant: You heard it correctly. It's getting renewed (Source and second source). Part of the reason why it is getting renewed is because the series is also produced by an international company and because of that, there is little risk for NBC to produce it. And with an SVOD, the cost to produce an episode is predicted to be even lower for the third season. Also, it helps that the series is adored by critics and the internet.

@Bigheart711: Hopefully Netflix will pick up community and we'll get a movie ala Arrested Development.

That cancellation list could get longer, however.

I was hoping that Almost Human and Suburgatory would get a renew, but it just wasn't in the cards. Otherwise, I'm not too bothered by what has been canceled. I wasn't even aware that Growing Up Fisher was a real TV show.

This lag is really unbelievable. I can't believe that it has even lasted 2 weeks.

And so the Amazing Spider-Man 2 falls victim to the villain curse. Should have known better than to stuff the films full of villains. It's like the writers learned nothing from Spider-Man 3.

@takashichea: If we're talking about live action movies where the colored act is the main character, I can think of a couple where a black person was given the role. I can't say the same about asian people though since I'm drawing a blank when I try to come up with some. Also, as you can guess, most minorities are given supporting cast roles or they are cast as the villains.

And just like the movies with women as leads, they don't score very high on the rottentomatometer.

  • Steel - This stars basketball star Shaquille O'Neal.
  • Blade Franchise - Three movies with a black person as the lead. That's quite the accomplishment. It's too bad we don't get to see more of this.
  • Hancock - This one has Will Smith of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air fame.
  • Catwoman - I wouldn't see this movie. It's really terrible.
  • Blankman - This one is more of a comedy rather than an action movie. Think Adam West's Batman.

@katmic: I'm going to have to disagree with you on Wonder Woman. While whether she remains necessary to the plot or not remains to be seen (we have to see the movie first), I would argue that including Wonder Woman is a good thing by itself. If you look an entire list of superhero movies ever made, you will find that the number of good live action movies where the female is the lead character is rather anemic. The closest ones we do to a good female superhero movie are movies like Tank Girl and Supergirl. Both of which are not very good. So, if this movie leads to a good live action Wonder Woman movie, then I can't be too mad at them for including her.

Dragon Ball Z » Was Dragon Ball Z trying to replace Goku ?

At one point, the series was supposed to end with the Cell Saga. Goku was supposed to be dead and Gohan would have taken over as the protector of the Earth. However, fans wanted Goku back since they were so attached to him and he was brought back.

And did it succeed ?

You answered your own questions when you said "but were forced to return their focus on Goku."

@takashichea: @ElHa:


Ever since the casting of Cyborg and Wonder Woman for the new Batman Vs Superman we knew that it was only going to be a matter of time before they announced a Justice League movie. Now, without further ado, finally we have official confirmation on the Justice League movie. And not only that, we are also told that Zack Synder will be directing the movie. Hurray for everyone who liked 300 and Manf of Steel because you are going to see more of that going around.

In addition, Mr. Silverman and Toby Emmerich, president of Warner’s New Line Cinema label has also announced that they are making other DC properties for the big screen:"Shazam," "Metal Man," "100 Bullets," and "Fables."

Time Warner has said that they have no plans for a Wonder Woman solo movie. However, they are "warmed" to the idea.

“That is our hope,” said Sue Kroll, president of worldwide marketing. “With the right script, that could be viable. The world is ready for her.”
