Weekend Wrap-Up…March 9, 2014

In another effort to make The Walking Dead as accessible as possible, there will be a mobile game, similar to The Walking Dead; Assault, released to coincide with season 5.

An hour-long TMNT episode featuring the original voice cast is going to air next weekend.  Nerd out begin.

The Sin City: A Dame to Kill For trailer came out.  It’s just so damn beautiful.

Shaq Fu 2 is real.

I Fucking Love Science is getting a TV Show.  Starting from a Facebook page and ending with a TV series?!  Maybe Hush will get that lucky, too.

Idris Elba will be voicing Shere Khan in the Disney reboot of The Jungle Book.

FX renewed Archer for two more seasons.  Danger.  Zone.

Quvenzhane Wallis’ Annie trailer premiered.  It looks funny, emotional, and the best Christmas movie for 2014.

FOX is renewing a bunch of shows including Brooklyn Nine-Nine.  More Andy Samberg on TV is always good news.

Sony bought the rights to develop Max Brooks’ Harlem Hellfighters into a film.  This will definitely be a film to see.

Marvel is releasing a new set of documentaries called Tales to Astonish.  Starting them off will document Civil War, one of the best Graphic Novels of the last decade.

The Supernatural spin-off will be called Supernatural: Bloodlines rather that Tribes.  It’s big deal for Supernatural fans.

A new 24 trailer came out.  It looks epic.. but I’m still wondering how 12 hour mini-series should still be called 24?

Star Trek episode “The City on the Edge of Forever” will be adapted into a five issue comic series distributed by IDW.  Trekkies will surely be glad to see the adaptation that Harlan Ellison intended to make.

So Far this Week… February 19, 2014

With the expansion of Hush Comics, we have decided to give bi-weekly news updates.  Anything we find news-worthy will be posted here bi-weekly.  Have anything to add?  Post it in the comments!

Our home town of Denver is going through some Comic-Con strife.  Published in the Westword today, one of the co-founders lists the indiscretions of the Board of Directors.  Denver Comic Con has released this statement.  As a side note, our sister, Sara, is the girl dressed as Wonder Woman in the second picture of the article.  What a gem to find in such a depressing article…

Speaking of Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot is getting buff.  Back off, naysayers.

Guardians of the Galaxy has a new trailer.  What a bunch of A-Holes.  (and yes, we are hooked on a feeling.. that Rocket Raccoon is gonna be the best thing ever.)

The May cover of The Walking Dead issue 127 features a new character and double the pages.  What does this mean for the future of all of our beloved characters?  Sound off in the comments!

In May, DC will release Future’s End #1featuring a time-traveling Batman Beyond.  Check out the schway cover here.

Also in May (wow May is gonna ROCK!) Alex Ross will have a variant to All New X-Men #27 and it is awesome.  What a great artist.

Is Superman: Doomed a way to turn the Man of Steel into Doomsday?  Read the interview with writer Greg Pak here.  Action Comics #30 is due out in April.

J.K. Rowling is going to release a sequel to 2013’s The Cuckoo’s Calling called The Silkworm under the pen name Robert Galbraith.  Be warned: it isn’t anything like the Harry Potter series.

Robert Kirkman and Norman Reedus are …. going to work on another project together!  Kirkman will produce and Reedus will star in a new sci-fi film titled Air.  Read more here.

Go Ninja, Go Ninja, Go!  Is the new Vanilla Ice Kraft Macaroni and Cheese advertisement making anyone else want to buy your local grocery store out of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle shaped noodles?!  No?  Is that just us?

X-Men: Days of Future Past has a bad-ass website now.  Check it out to learn more about the mutants.

Jada Pinkett Smith will play the villain in the new Gotham series.

Jack Bauer is that much closer to gracing our television screens again.  The 12 episode 24: Live Another Day premieres in May.  But if it is only 12 hours, does that mean that he only lives for another half day?

Comcast and Time-Warner are merging.  They are waging war against Netflix.  Who will land on Park Place first?  Read the details here.

And right at publishing, the new Fantastic Four reboot cast was announced.  Just in the nick of time!

Weekend Wrap-Up February 2, 2014

The Denver Broncos reign on top was shorter than Leprechauns, as they fell to the Seattle Seahawks 43-8. What incredible play by the Seahawks. We’re still proud of our Broncos, and we’ll be rocking orange during our visit to Seattle for Emerald City Comic Con in March.

Aside from Denver’s poor performance, this is what the Super Bowl revealed:

– Nerds Rule: Captain America, Spidey, Transformers.  Oh, my!

– The return of 24

– RHCP and Bruno Mars need to go on tour.

Budweiser made me wish I owned a horse and a puppy. And that they become best friends. But it still doesn’t make me want beer.

Hush Comics will be celebrating Black History Month will spotlights on African-American writers, artists and graphic novel reviews. #ALLBLACKEVERYTHING

Jesse Eisenberg, star of Now You See MeThe Social Network, and Zombieland, has been cast as Lex Luthor in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman film. Now, this seems to have upset not only the fanboys, but the bald community as well. We’re less concerned about his dome and more concerned about the age discrepancy between Eisenberg and his co-stars. It’s my theory that Luthor may be cast as an intern at WayneTech or student at Metropolis State.

Also cast in Batman vs. Superman was Jeremy Irons, as Alfred Pennyworth. Irons has had many solid acting gigs through the last twenty years, notably as Rodrigo Borgia in The Borgias. Nobody is allowed to be upset with this casting, as Jeremy Irons meet the single qualification of Alfred – he’s British.

If your wallet is burning a hole in your pocket, you should go buy Justice League: War, the adaptation of the Justice League’s New 52 origin, hitting shelves on Tuesday. Check out our review here.

Dark Horse Comics has announced The Sakai Project, named after Stan Sakai, creator of Usagi Yojimbo. Most may remember Usagi as the mutant rabbit from who cameo-ed in the early TMNT cartoons. To celebrate 30 years of Yojimbo, Dark Horse is gathering dozens of artists to submit their own rendering of Usagi for a special anniversary issue, released in July.

Also out Tuesday, a new free game for Playstation Plus subscribers called Outlast comes out. It will scare the living crap out of you, I promise.

Bones has been renewed for a tenth season. Seems just yesterday that we were watching David Boreanaz brood around The Bronze.

Fienin’ for some bracket-style action? AMC has opened up Zombie Bowl 2014, where you get to vote on which recognizable walkers from The Walking Dead would win in a face-off with your face off. Our money is on the little girl in the pink bathrobe!

Fancy tech watches are all the rage right now, but Apple’s new iWatch product is rumored to be fitness-oriented. I’m not sure who buys watches anymore, but an integration with a fitness component could make it the next popular gadget for the market.

Harry and Hermione, siting in a tree?  According to J.K. Rowling, they should have been.  We think that Hermione and Ron were great together.  Not to mention, Harry Potter was never a love story, but a coming of age story.  H and H 4eva would have ruined that.

Can’t we all just be Friends? Well, David Schwimmer AKA Ross Gellar may possibly joining his  Friends cast-mates in prime-time sitcoms. Schwimmer stars in ABC’s Irreversible, which has yet to be picked up for a full season. Side question: Am I the only one who has been getting their David Schwimmer fix from that guy in American Horror Story?

Channing Tatum could be Gambit.  Ladies everywhere will suddenly be into the X-Men.  Men will watch no matter what.

Seth Myers gave us the Weekend Update for the last time last night on SNL.  Laugh over here.

Microsoft is offering $100 off your purchase of an X-Box One if you give them your PS3, which basically brings the price down to the retail price of a PS4. This console war is really bringing out the greed of Microsoft.

If you’re anything like me, you grew up on some Chip & Dale: Rescue Rangers. Then, like me, you should be freaking out because Disney is in talks to make a movie based on the epic cartoon that will focus on the origin of the tiny mystery-solving duo.

Sneakerheads will have something to look forward to this week as a new issue of SLAM Magazine covering the Air Jordan legacy comes out. This issue focuses on Air Jordan I-VI, so I’m sure there will be installments.

Woody Allen is definitely the most glorified pedophile in America.  Fuck you, guy.

Star Wars novels have been around for some time now, but this is the first one that I will undoubtedly buy. Darth Maul – Lockdown was released January 28th (sorry, a little late!) and it follows Darth Maul’s stay at the galaxy’s most dangerous prison; it’s also pre-Phanton Menace, which means a colorful backstory is in order.

In less important news, it has been announced that there will indeed be a sequel to Sharknado coming out on the SyFy channel. And yes, Tara Reid, in all her asymmetric-boobed glory, will be returning as the star.

Lastly, it is with great remorse and a lump in our throats that we talk about Philip Seymour Hoffman.  He was found dead this morning in NYC from a drug overdose.  Not only was he the man who gave the best performance in any Mission Impossible movie, but he also gave us Capote, the term “shart” in Along Came Polly, and of course, Plutarch Heavensbee in Catching Fire.  You will be missed.
