I’m always on the lookout for new cartoons to enjoy. BoJack Horseman, Steven Universe, Adventure Time and She-Ra and the Princess of Power are over. I’ve got to move on. And I’m moving directly into Centaurworld, possibly the weirdest, wildest new show we’re going to get this year.
That looks spectacular. It looks insane and weird and creative and hopefully perfect. The creator said she based the show off her own experiences in college, coming in as someone focused on her studies who randomly joined a musical theater club and had her life changed forever. That sounds neat! And it definitely looks reflected in that trailer. I can’t wait to see what this show is all about.
Centaurworld arrives on Netflix on July 30.
Some fun casting news arrived yesterday! According to Variety, Jameela Jamil has been cast as the villain Titania for the upcoming She-Hulk TV show. Jamil was awesome on The Good Place and I’m very excited about the She-Hulk show, so this is great news all around!
We already know that Tatiana Maslany will play She-Hulk, with guest appearances from Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk and Tim Roth as the Abomination. So it’s cool that She-Hulk will get her own arch enemy to knock around. Word has it that the TV show Titania will be an influencer, which is fine for a character in 2021/2022. Titania’s origins in the comics aren’t going to happen in the MCU anytime soon, so I’m all for them changing what needs to be changed.
Titania has never been a very deep character. But she’s strong enough to fight She-Hulk, so she’s a fine addition to the show. And Jameela Jamil is pretty awesome, so this is some fine casting!
The Loki TV show debuted today on Disney+ and I’m very excited to watch. I’ve loved all of the Marvel Studios TV shows to date, and everyone is very pumped about Loki being the best yet. By all means, let’s hope for the best and enjoy the show!
Loki being Loki, and the nature of this show being weird as possible, means we might get some really weird Lokis along the way. How weird? I’m ready to get really weird. Because Loki is rarely just Loki in his comic book history. There are some really weird Lokis out there to enjoy. And I hope the new TV show finds a way to include a bunch of them, just to be as weird as possible. Will any of these happen? Maybe some. Should all of them happen? Heck yeah!
Join me after the jump for some weird and alternate versions of Loki that I hope pop up on his show!Read the rest of this entry
As has been the case for some time now, we are living in a golden age of superhero entertainment. So much so that geeky fans like me can pick and choose which superhero stuff they watch and still enjoy a lot of it. And so much so that there now exists an animated cartoon comedy about M.O.D.O.K. This show exists. It’s real. And I watched it all in a weekend and loved it!
TV Rating: 9/10 – Great.
Announced only two years ago as part of some insane lineup of Marvel cartoons, M.O.D.O.K. is the only one that made it to air. No one will ever known exactly what the Tigra/Dazzler show was going to be like, but we can now safely say that M.O.D.O.K. is awesome! Driven by the wit and voice talents of comedian Patton Oswalt, M.O.D.O.K. is a darn fun show and can easily hold its giant head high in today’s wild TV landscape. This is a quality show.
Join me after the jump for my review and thoughts on the M.O.D.O.K. TV show, now available for streaming on Hulu. Expect FULL SPOILERS for the show. And feel free to share your own thoughts in the comments.Read the rest of this entry
This has been known for a while now, but wasn’t as confirmed as I usually like when I write about superhero movie casting. But now Marvel Studios has confirmed that Oscar Isaac will be Moon Knight in the upcoming TV show!
And great! I like Isaac. I like Moon Knight. And the character has gone through a lot of modern revisions that make him especially cool. So I have high hopes for this series. And that’s about it. I think the show is in pre-production right now. It’s a year or two out from our TV screens. But I have total faith in this casting and this show.
