Usually when it comes to long comic book or book series, fans would much prefer a TV series adaptation over movies. Especially these days. And that’s exactly the road that Sandman is now traveling on, as Netflix has announced that a series adaptation of Gaiman’s work is on the way to the streaming service.
Marvel female superheroes are slowly, but surely, having more of an onscreen presence in the MCU. There’s Sky and Agent Carter on the TV front, while Jessica Jones has her series on Netflix. Wasp shared a title billing with Ant-Man in Ant-Man and the Wasp, and we recently saw the first trailer for Captain Marvel. Disney also announced that they would be having a Scarlet Witch series on Disney Play. And now, we can expect to see even more female superheroes on ABC.
New reports confirm that there will be a new group of lesser known Marvel female superheroes coming to the small screen from Wonder Woman writer Allan Heinberg. More on the story below.
Comic-Con Saturday is really shaping up to be just like any other Comic-Con Saturday, with the biggest, most geeked out studios having panels to present highly anticipated movies. Marvel will be there for Doctor Strange and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, maybe another surprise too, because the studio knows what’s up. Then there is Kong: Skull Island from Legendary. Finally, there’s Warner Bros., who will be there for their DCEU shared universe. After the fallout of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, we are eagerly awaiting to see how they’ll recover, and their upcoming slate seems to indicate that they can. Both Suicide Squad and Wonder Woman look very exciting, and let’s not forget that Justice League is in the middle of production, so we could get a sweet teaser from them.
But here is an interesting tid bit that was revealed in a press release. The film may have gotten some new writers that we never knew about. The Wonder Woman movie starring Gal Gadot has been written by Zack Snyder, Geoff Johns, and Allan Heinberg. More on the story below.
Marvel‘s Cup of Joe panel Saturday at the 2010 C2E2 was chock full of news and one of the biggest surprises was the announcement of the return of the Young Avengers team of Allan Heinberg and Jim Cheung with a new 9-issue miniseries titled Avengers: The Children’s Crusade. The series launches in July and will run bi-monthly.
In a video of Heinberg explaining the series, he said that he is currently writing the script for issue six (with plans to have the whole series written by the time the first issue comes out), so even though it will take a year and a half for the series to be completed, it should be on time.
The story will focus on the Young Avengers characters that were created by Heinberg and Cheung, but will also feature the rest of the Avengers. The plot is said to be about Young Avengers member Wiccan as he tries to track down the Scarlet Witch, who may or may not be his mother.
