This may not be much, but it’s a start…one of the things i noticed when re-reading the beginnings of Alien Legion was an inconsistency in the rank emblems from issue to issue. It wasn’t glaringly obvious, but it was noticeable. So, one of the 1st things i have worked on was nailing down a clear rank system…starting with the squad ranking from basic Private to Squad Captain…
not her final design, but we are getting there…I think she is a little too Flash-like so i am taking off the wing-ear thingys and opening up the eye-pieces…updated sketch coming soon.
It’s nice to finally have some new art to post 🙂
A first look at Captain Marvel is finally here and with it comes some brand new details about the highly anticipated Marvel Studios movie. Apparently, when this adventure begins, Carol Danvers will already have her powers and will have left Earth behind to join an elite military team called Starforce, a group led by Jude Law’s enigmatic commander. However, she soon chooses to return to Earth to explore her past and that’s presumably when we’ll learn how the superhero gained her incredible abilities. “She can’t help but be herself,” actress Brie Larson explains to Entertainment Weekly. “She can be aggressive, and she can have a temper, and she can be a little invasive and in your face. She’s also quick to jump to things, which makes her amazing in battle because she’s the first one out there and doesn’t always wait for orders. But the [not] waiting for orders is, to some, a character flaw.”
It was recently announced that MGM is working on a direct sequel to to Paul Verhoeven’s original RoboCop with Neill Blomkamp on board to direct, and the District 9 filmmaker has now strongly hinted that he’d like to get Peter Weller back under the helmet as “The Future of Law Enforcement.”Here’s Blomkamp’s response to a Tweet wondering who should portray the titular cyborg in his film. Peter Weller— Neill Blomkamp (@NeillBlomkamp) August 13, 2018It seems clear that Blomkamp wants Weller to return as Officer Alex Murphy, but whether that actually happens remains to be seen.RoboCop Returns is being developed from a script that was actually written by Ed Neumeier and Michael Miner as a follow-up to Verhoeven’s beloved original. Terminator reboot scribe Justin Rhodes will now get to work on a rewrite.
The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media’s ongoing negotiations with Chris Pine (Wonder Woman 1984) and Chris Hemsworth (Avengers: Infinity War) for Star Trek 4 have fallen apart over the past few days, with both sides walking away from the table.This latest development has thrown the entire production into a state of flux and it’s now uncertain what the two studios will do to ensure the project, which remains a high priority for them, stays on track. THR theorizes that both sides could ultimately return to the negotiating table to hammer out new contracts, but, if they can’t come to terms, then the roles of both Captain Kirk (Pine) and his father (Hemsworth) could potentially be recast, but that’s a last-ditch move that almost definitely wouldn’t go over well with fans. As for what happened, it appears that there was a major money dispute. According to the report, both Pine and Hemsworth have had deals in place for the fourth installment since 2016, but, due to the underwhelming box office performance of Star Trek Beyond ($343.4M worldwide on a $190M budget), both studios are asking the two in-demand, borderline A-list, stars to take pay cuts to accommodate a smaller budget for the fourth film. Deals with fellow returning stars Zoe Saldana (Avengers: Infinity War), Zachary Quinto (Hotel Artemis), Karl Urban (Thor: Ragnarok), Simon Pegg (Mission: Impossible – Fallout), and John Cho (Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle) were expected to be finalized after both Pine and Hemsworth, but their statuses are now uncertain as well. The sequel, which has tapped S.J. Clarkson (Marvel’s Jessica Jones) to direct, is reportedly not being put on hold, so expect a resolution of some sort in the not-so-distant future.
The CW has announced that Ruby Rose (Orange is the New Black, The Meg) will play Kate Kane in the annual DC Arrowverse crossover event before reprising the role for her solo series. More past the jump…Mark Cassidy | 8/7/2018Filed Under: “Batwoman”REPORT ADWe’ve been waiting to find out who would be playing Batwoman ever since The CW announced that the character would be joining The Arrowverse, and it’s just been revealed that Ruby Rose has been cast in the role.In what is being viewed as a big casting coup for the network, Rose (John Wick: Chapter 2, The Meg, Pitch Perfect 3) will debut as Batwoman in the annual DC crossover event this winter, before going on to star in her own solo adventure.The CW has already stated that they were searching for an LGBT actress to play the openly gay superhero, and Rose — who identifies as gender fluid — had actually been a big fan-favorite pick for the role.Though it hasn’t been officially greenlit yet, the prospective Batwoman series will be written by Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaries), who will also executive produce alongside Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Geoff Johns.
One of the surprise announcement at last Friday’s Star Trek: Discovery panel at San Diego Comic Con was the word that actor Rebecca Romijn had been cast as the new Number One — the first officer of the USS Enterprise under Captain Pike — and a role originated by Majel Barrett in 1964.She wasn’t at the Discovery panel herself, but she did comment briefly to MTR Network about the announcement, from elsewhere in the San Diego convention:Today, however, Romijn shared some more of her reaction to taking on the Trek role with Entertainment Tonight, describing how the opportunity was described to her:“I didn’t know the full story. I was asked if I’d be interested in a somewhat iconic role in the series and I jumped at the chance. I was a Trekkie as a kid with the original series. After I was filled in with all the details — after I said ‘yes’ — oh man, I was floored. It was amazing.She also described what it was like to first put on that 23rd century Starfleet uniform for he first time — and her thoughts on the classic Trek-inspired costume and set designs of the ‘new’ Enterprise.“When they fit me [for the uniform], they fit me in the original gold uniform from [the classic] Enterprise because “Discovery” takes place 10 years before the Original Series. But when they fit me for that uniform, I was teary-eyed.Because [classic “Trek” with the] Enterprise was shot in the ‘60s, we’ve gone with a little bit of a ‘60s flair, which is great — and being there on set, there’s a ‘60s vibe on set. The production is amazing. Just walking through the stages up there, it’s gorgeous — really, really beautiful sets.”Romijn’s first tweet on the subject showcased a small glimpse at her Starfleet look, wearing the same golden uniform as Captain Pike, with official service-issue pants, boots, and Starfleet delta badge in tow.She would not tell ET how many episodes she’ll be appearing in — though she noted that she’s expecting to head back to Toronto for additional filming — but Romjin did reveal that she and Anson Mount’s Captain Pike have spent time talking about their missing Mr. Spock.“I’m working with Anson Mount, who plays an amazing Captain Pike, and we have discussed Mr. Spock. Mr. Spock has been a topic of conversation.”We didn’t get a chance to see Romijn’s new Number One in last week’s Season 2 trailer, so hopefully CBS will share some of the actor’s performance with us soon as we get closer to the new season, expected to kick off in January 2019.
Sir Patrick Stewart (Logan) officially announced today that he will be returning to the Star Trek universe as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in an all-new series for CBS All Access.While plot details are understandably being kept under wraps, the series is expected to serve as a sequel to Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987-1994) as well as to his four films – Star Trek Generations (1994), Star Trek: First Contact (1996), Star Trek: Insurrection (1998), and Star Trek: Nemesis (2002). It will tell the story of an older, wiser Picard as he embarks on a whole new set of intergalactic adventures. Alex Kurtzman, James Duff, Akiva Goldsman, Michael Chabon, and Kirsten Beyer will serve as the creative team behind the project, which is the second Star Trek universe series to hit the streaming service. At least two other shows, including a series set at Starfleet Academy and a “Wrath of Khan” miniseries, are said to be in development.A premiere date has not been set, but we can probably expect it on the streaming service sometime next year, if not sooner. Meanwhile, Star Trek: Discovery will return for its second season in early 2019.
