More CW The Flash News – Jesse L Martin joins the show!

jesse_l_martinArrow spin off The Flash continues to make news with the announcement today that Jesse L. Martin will be co-staring in the upcoming show as Detective West. The Hollywood Reported broke the news today.

If his name sounds familiar as a cop that’s because Martin had a combine 200 Episode run as Detective Ed Green between Law Order and Law Order: Special Victims Unit. Detective West will be an blue-collar officer and a father figure to Barry Alley.

Although the flash began as a backdoor pilot as part of Arrow, the CW is filming a standalone pilot in hopes of launching a full fledged series alongside Arrow.

I wonder how Jesse Martin feels about being cast once again as a detective.

Fox Gets A Jim Gordon Series

Some of you might have been distracted last night with the start of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD but Fox and DC dropped some news on us.  Following a bidding war between the major networks Fox has announced the arrival of a new show entitled ‘Gotham.’  To give you an idea the level of confidence Fox has in the new show its worth pointing out this is a straight-to-series order, meaning no pilot stage.

Gordon_year1Early reports from Deadline state that the new series will focus on young Detective James Gordon and ‘the villains that made Gotham famous.’  It was also made clear that Gotham will take place before Jim Gordon meets Batman and that Batman will not play a part in the series.  If you want one of my patented conspiracy theories though, notice they never said that Bruce Wayne would not be in the series.  Keep an eye open for a possible Bruce Wayne cameo.

Bruno Heller, known for writers credits in Rome and The Mentalist, will be writing the Jim Gordon based series.  Right now, many people are expecting the series to launch in the 2014-2015 TV season.

This is quite the coup for DC and WB though…continued on GonnaGeek.com

Area 51! Conspiracy! Storage Units! Humor!

The upcoming sci-fi/comedy comic book, UNIT 44 answers the question, ‘What would happen if Area 51 employees forgot to pay the rent on their off-site storage unit, and the secret contents were sold at public auction?’

“I’ve written comics in a lot of different genres, but I really wanted do something fun,” said Locher. “I think the medium needs more of that.”

The campaign raised 53% of its funding goal in the first 24 hours and offers rewards that range from…continued on GonnaGeek

Ben Affleck to Play Batman in Man of Steel Sequel

That’s right folks you read that right.  Ben Affleck will be playing Batman, the Dark Knight, in the sequel to Man of Steel.  This isn’t speculation as Warner Brothers has confirmed the news in press release shown below.

Ending weeks of speculation, Ben Affleck has been set to star as Batman, a.k.a. Bruce Wayne. Affleck and filmmaker Zack Snyder will create an entirely new incarnation of the character in Snyder’s as-yet-untitled project—bringing Batman and Superman together for the first time on the big screen and continuing the director’s vision of their universe, which he established in “Man of Steel.” The announcement was made today by Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production, and Sue Kroll, President, Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.
The studio has slated the film to open worldwide on July 17, 2015.
Last month’s surprise announcement of the new movie featuring both Superman and Batman created a wave of excitement and immediately fueled discussion and debate—among fans as well as in the media—about who would put on the cape and cowl of Bruce Wayne’s alter ego.
Snyder successfully re-imagined the origin of Clark Kent/Superman in the worldwide blockbuster “Man of Steel,” which has earned more than $650 million worldwide to date, and climbing. The director will now create an original vision of Batman and his world for the film that brings the two DC Comics icons together.
Affleck will star opposite Henry Cavill, who will reprise the role of Superman/Clark Kent. The film will also reunite “Man of Steel” stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.
In the announcement, Silverman stated, “We knew we needed an extraordinary actor to take on one of DC Comics’ most enduringly popular Super Heroes, and Ben Affleck certainly fits that bill, and then some. His outstanding career is a testament to his talent and we know he and Zack will bring new dimension to the duality of this character.”
Snyder also expressed his excitement about the casting of Affleck, noting, “Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry’s Superman. He has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retain the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne. I can’t wait to work with him.”
Kroll added …continued on GonnaGeek.com
