C2E2 2013: Dark Horse Announces Hellboy: The Midnight Circus, Elfquest: The Final Quest, and Powers Figures Line
C2E2 is in full swing, and first out of the gate with big announcements is Dark Horse with three new items on the way, including a re-teaming of Mike Mignola and artist Duncan Fegredo for Hellboy: The Midnight Circus.
Here’s one of those "only in Hollywood" stories. This is about a TV pilot that was shot a year ago but rejected by the network that instead wanted the show’s writer to shoot a new pilot with a new cast. That has not happened yet, but said network wants everyone to know they’re still actively developing the project.
It's a wonder that Lost Boys star Jason Patric hasn't returned to the franchise that put him on the horror map, but never fear; though he won't be getting all bitey any time soon, the man does have some possible "Powers" of his own!
When we first saw Charles S. Dutton hit the acting scene decades ago, we knew one thing for sure: The man had powers. He fought a Xenomorph without weapons for god's sake! You need a hefty sac just to attempt such a thing!
It's been a while since last we had any news regarding casting for upcoming genre TV shows (about 35 seconds to be exact) so we figured we'd take this time to dose you on news straight from the boob tube.
The talks are over and everything is finally official for the new TV show for FX based on the popular comic by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming, "Powers", and we have all the details for you right here, free of oozing entrails.
Here at Dread Central we love comic books. Especially those that deal with the darker side of the tracks. That's right, kids, we like our heroes drenched in blood! A new comic adaptation is on the way from someone who knows all about violence in comics and isn't afraid to embrace it.
