Into The Badlands Getting A Second Season
The past couple of weeks have seemingly been nothing but TV renewal news. A lot of what you’d expect and The CW renewing everything because why not. Still the one that excites me the most is Into The Badlands being renewed on AMC. After the massive push the show had and AMC’s rep as a channel I shouldn’t be surprised though. In my review of the show last year I gave it a B- having enjoyed the show’s fighting and aesthetic but found the story a bit lacking. Thankfully AMC has potentially remedied this by extending the season from 6 episodes to 10 in 2017. Hopefully this leaves room for an appearance from The Monkey King which nobody promised but I’ve totally hyped myself up about.
Agent Carter Likely For Renewal
Unfortunately we are still waiting for an update on Marvel’s Agent Carter. Despite being Marvel’s best TV property (sorry SHIELD) ratings declined all of season 2. Between that and a lack of announcement I feared for the worst. Luckily website Nerd Reactor is saying that they heard from an inside source that chances are good for a season 3. Now keep in mind this is all coming from the ever popular “unnamed source” but man do I want to believe. It really is a great show and it’d be awful if it ended on a cliffhanger.
First Look At New Spider-Man
When it comes to Captain America: Civil War there are quite a few mysteries. What causes the schism between Cap and Iron Man? Why do people pick their side? Will Hawkeye be underutilized again? The biggest of them being how does Spider-Man come into play and how does the costume look? Well we answered at least half of that and it turns out the suit looks pretty damn good. Appearing at the tail end of the latest Civil War trailer it looks like the traditional Spidey costume for the most part. The only thing that are adapted from the previous films is that it has that bumpy basketball thing those movies did. I’m sure this is a deal breaker to some particularly dedicated nerd but I think it looks great. Now here’s hoping we get the ridiculous dubstep soundtrack Amazing Spider-Man 2 had.
