Happy Thursday! Another week, another round-up of all the latest news happening in the world of fandom, especially since NYCC was this weekend. There’s more Hobbit posters, a first look at the new Daredevil, your favorite a-holes animated and BIG news from both Marvel and DC. So let’s get on with it:
The rest of the character posters for The Battle of the Five Armies. I’m in serious denial that this franchise is coming to an end. Peter Jackson will return to Middle Earth eventually. Right? Right?!
…in the galaxy
A first-look at the Guardians of the Galaxy animated series!
…in the TARDIS
Did anyone really think Clara was going to just leave mid-season?
…in the world of comics
Exciting news from NYCC! According to The Mary Sue, there’s going to be a new Wonder Woman series based on the 1970s TV show. Thank, Hera!
Ugh. If you don’t know my thoughts on Gotham…well, in short, I don’t like it so far. Everyone is just SUPER dramatic and I don’t understand why they have to hit us over the head with references and foreshadowing (“My name is Cat!” “You walk like a penguin!”) not to mention the abusive and dick-ish Alfred. So the news that they ordered in 6 more episodes does absolutely nothing for me. Except maybe feel a little amused that they might now have to scramble to change things since they planned their story around the original number of episodes.

Stop right there. You mean to tell me that they won’t continue making more of these movies after City of Bones?! Shocker. According to THR, the book series will now be coming to the small screen. I haven’t decided yet on how I feel about this. I’ll wait for more details.
…in DC’s NYC
A new trailer for Constantine which I’m actually getting excited for if only to distract me from Gotham.
…in the Marvel Cinematic Universe
Last week I posted about RDJ saying he’s going to re-don the Iron Man suit and assumed he meant Iron Man 4 but that’s not the case. He’ll be clashing with Steve Rogers in Captain America 3. Variety reports the 3rd movie will be based on the Civil War storyline, which sounds amaze-balls!
…in the DC Cinematic Universe
Finally we get some clarity on DC’s plans via /Film but man do we have to wait a long time for some of the movies in their line-up:
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice directed by Zack Snyder (2016)
Suicide Squad directed by David Ayer (2016)
Wonder Woman starring Gal Gadot (2017)
Justice League Part One directed by Zack Snyder, with Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Amy Adams reprising their roles (2017)
The Flash starring Ezra Miller (2018)
Aquaman starring Jason Momoa (2018)
Justice League Part Two directed by Zack Snyder (2019)
Cyborg starring Ray Fisher (2020)
Green Lantern (2020)
Thanks for making the Momoa casting official already. Not sure what all the secrecy was for. I’m very intrigued about the casting choices for The Flash and Cyborg. But more importantly…
FINALLY we’re going to have a Wonder Woman movie!!! Whoever’s going to be in charge of this: Do. Not. Mess. It. Up. Kaythanksbye.
