Legends of Tomorrow
Check out the promo below for the Arrow/Flash spinoff, called DC’s Legends of Tomorrow
“Time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter must assemble a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat to the planet…and to time itself. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is coming soon to The CW.”
PLEASE TAKE NOTE that Rip is a time traveler. With that in mind, it sort of makes sense that one of the characters in this new show, thought to have died in Arrow, is alive here and with a new name.
But I have to say, if you watch Arrow and found yourself slammed with that one hell of a cliffhanger when that building exploded on one of our characters… the end of this preview clip does some serious spoilage for that… but other wise… it looks like it could be another fun hit from The CW and DC Comics.
It looks fun… and the other CW shows have been carrying their own weight pretty well, so I’m expecting more of the same from this new show.
Grumpy Cat Gets a Comic
In case you missed that fantastic TV movie with Grumpy Cat (here’s my shell-shocked review), or you actually liked the Grumpy Cat movie, guess what? OK, so the title blew that quiz out of the water. Fine… here’s the press release, oh, and by the way, I think Grumpy Cat translates to print much much better than a movie. In a film, our imaginations are deflated when we hear the voice of Grumpy, while on print, we can adlib our own imaginations to the imagery.
Well, for me at least.
via press release:
Dynamite is proud to announce a collaborative licensing partnership with Grumpy Cat Limited to develop print and digital comic books and graphic novels featuring “The World’s Grumpiest Cat” and her brother, Pokey. Grumpy Cat will debut the first of her all-new misadventures in a three-issue miniseries, released in Fall 2015, and collected into a hardcover graphic novel in time for the holiday season. Dynamite also plans to launch a website this summer where new Grumpy Cat comic strips will go up online every week.
Grumpy Cat’s global following includes 7.6 million Facebook fans and over 31 million YouTube views. Since her photos first went viral in 2012, Grumpy Cat has gone from Internet star to real-life celebrity. She has two New York Time Best Selling Books, her own Lifetime movie Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever (voiced by actress Aubrey Plaza), has made numerous appearances including the MTV Movie Awards, American Idol, The Bachelorette, The Today Show, SXSW, Good Morning America, and even hosted WWE Monday Night Raw.
