Agent Carter: Not Everyone is Who They Appear to Be

Having taken a one-week break thanks to the State of the Union address, Marvel’s Agent Carter returns this coming Tuesday to continue its eight-episode run.

Guiding the series are showrunners Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas – longtime collaborators who created Reaper and whose credits include Dollhouse and Resurrection. I recently spoke to Fazekas about what to expect when Agent Carter returns, as the show’s focus switches gears, now that Howard Stark’s stolen tech has been recovered.

We also discussed Peggy’s allies and if all of them are what they appear to be…

IGN: James D’Arcy said an interesting thing about how now the show will kind of really begin anew moving forward.

Julia Roberts to Star in/Produce Batkid Movie

Julia Roberts will star in and adapt the dramatic feature film version of the Batkid story, based on the documentary Batkid Begins: The Wish Heard Around the World. The crowd-funded doc is making its debut at the Slamdance festival in Park City, Utah, this weekend.

Batkid, of course, is Miles Scott, the young boy and leukemia survivor who became a superhero for a day in 2013 when thousands of volunteers helped fulfill his Make-A-Wish event and transform San Francisco into Gotham City. Scott became a social media sensation along the way.

Check out our Batkid slideshow above.

Roberts is attached to star in and produce the remake of the doc with her Red Om Films partners Lisa Gillan and Marisa Yeres Gill. Batkid Begins director Dana Nachman will executive produce, as will Submarine’s Josh Braun and Dan Braun.

Watchmen’s Doomsday Clock Ticks Forward

The Doomsday Clock, a metaphorical warning system for world-ending threats, has been moved to three minutes to midnight.

io9 reports that The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, which administers the clock, cited global warming and nuclear proliferation as its reasoning behind the move. It has been at five minutes to midnight since 2012, when it was moved up from six due to concerns about nuclear safety. The closer to midnight, the closer we’re said to be to a global catastrophe.

This makes the current position tied for the second-closest it’s ever been, says io9. It has been at three minutes in 1984 during the Cold War, and in 1949 when the Soviet Union tested its own atomic bomb. It has only been closer to midnight once, in 1953, when both the United States and Soviet Union were testing thermonuclear weapons.

Graphic Novel Review: Starlight

As far as creator owned books go, few can match the sheer volume and success of writer Mark Millar. The mastermind behind popular comic and cinematic properties such as Kick-Ass and Wanted (as well as the upcoming Kingsman: The Secret Service), Millar has made a name for himself crafting explosive reads driven by high octane action, aggressive violence and tights-on-tights melees. It’s somewhat surprising then that Starlight is none of these things. In fact, the latest from Millar and collaborator Goran Parlov is perhaps the most un-Millar like read of all. It’s sentimental and honest, romantic and sincere, completely unabashed in its nostalgic reverence for old fashioned pulp. In doing something different, Millar has created one of his best books yet.

Sprint responds to T-Mobile’s Smartphone Equality with a $200 minimum trade-in credit

T-Mobile Sprint logo

Yesterday, T-Mobile in a typical Un-carrier move dropped credit checks to permit its loyal users, especially prepaid customers, those with a weak credit and ones on a monthly voice plan, to enjoy the best deals and zero-down offers.

It didn’t take rival Sprint long to respond.

Targeting T-Mobile customers, Sprint said today that it’ll be guaranteeing switchers a minimum trade-in credit of $200 for their current T-Mobile smartphone in good condition, and up to $350 per line to cover switching costs…. Read the rest of this post here
