The loose big screen adaptation of an obscure Marvel comic of the same name, Big Hero 6 served as an origin story of sorts for Hiro Hamada and his band of superhero misfits, including the cuddly inflatable smart robot Baymax. It was a big hit for the Mouse House, grossing over $650 million dollars worldwide and winning Best Animated Feature at the Academy Awards. With so many more adventures to take this team on, yet a limited amount of opportunities and budget to do it on the big screen, Disney decided to task Kim Possible creators with developing a television series based ...

Arrowverse Black Lightning Crossover

The CW has debuted a sizzle reel showing off all their superhero shows, as well as giving audiences a sneak peek at their newest series, Black Lightning. The network has been the central hub for DC Comics-related shows for the past five years, which began with Arrow in 2012, and continued with The Flash in 2014 and Legends of Tomorrow in 2016. Supergirl officially joined the fold last year when CBS transferred the series over to The CW. Together, all four shows make up the colloquially-named Arrowverse, and although the network doesn’t have any plans to add another hero into the mix, that doesn’t mean they are shying away from developing other superhero shows.

Based on the comic book character of the same name created by Tony Isabella, Black Lightning stars Cress Williams as the eponymous character, Jefferson Pierce, aka Black Lightning, who, after spending nine ...

Spawn Animated Film Art

Spawn creator Todd McFarlane has announced that he will write and direct the upcoming reboot for Blumhouse Productions. McFarlane created Albert Francis “Al” Simmons, aka Spawn, in the early ’90s for Image Comics. His popularity skyrocketed that decade, and New Line Cinema eventually commissioned an adaptation from director Mark A.Z. Dippé and screenwriter Alan B. McElroy, with Michael Jai White playing the eponymous character. Unfortunately, the movie became a critical and commercial failure for the studio, and that put a damper on plans to develop a sequel.

The Spawn sequel fell into development hell in 1998, and that’s where it remained for several years. McFarlane campaigned to get the sequel made ...
