This week on NCIS: Gotham… Will Arnett (star of Lego Batman) stars as Batman pulling desk duty after he has to hand in his gun, badge, and mask. Picking up the phone wearing a button down and one bat glove, oh how far Gotham’s finest have fallen!
Will Arnett completed his third day at San Diego Comic-Con live on the Syfy channel. His guests on Saturday included Elijah Wood, The Magicians crew, the cast of the new sci-fi show Timeless, debuting on NBC this Fall and of course, it wouldn’t be the Syfy channel, without some hot Sharknado action as Tara Reid joins him. Arriving via segway to Europe’s classic Final Countdown, he was greeted by throngs of screaming cosplayers. His panel was David Giuntoli (NBC’s Grimm), Mercedes Mason (AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead), and YouTube star Andre Meadows.
Last November, Shout! Factory, which owns the rights to the cult classic comedy series Mystery Science Theater 3000, teamed up with the show’s creator and first host Joel Hodgson to launch a Kickstarter campaign to fund a reboot of MST3K. Their target fundraising goal was set at $2 million, but the campaign ultimately became the highest-funded film and TV crowdfunding effort in history by raising a grand total of $5.7 million, allowing them to fund the production of 14 new episodes with an all-star squadron of geek icons and comedy geniuses working in front of and behind the camera.
On Saturday at a panel for the MST3K revival at San Diego Comic-Con, the announcement was made that the new show will be coming exclusively to Netflix as part of a $5 billion investment from the film and television streaming giant in original programming, which also includes their Marvel Studios series and the recent Stranger Things.
At San Diego Comic-Con yesterday, the DC’s Legends of Tomorrow panel revealed lots of exciting stuff coming up in season 2, plus a first look trailer.

The Last Man On Earth joined the rest of the human race at San Diego Comic-Con dishing about the tons of fun it is to work on the show. The panel included Will Forte, Kristen Schaal, Mary Steenburgen, Cleopatra Coleman, Mel Rodriguez, and January Jones.
