The Last Scene Of Twin Peaks The Return !

Is this what we are going to see the last scene of the relaunched Twin Peaks which is airing on Showtime. Oz closely resembles the fine town of Twin Peaks. Could this be all in Coopers mind????? Time will tell what David Lynch has in store for us in the world of Twin Peaks.

HEXCLUSIVE: Better stock up on a couple cups of joe and some pie if you’re in San Diego later this month because Twin Peaks is bringing its unique weirdness to Comic-Con for the first time.

Comic-Con: ‘Doctor Who’ Brings Peter Capaldi Back To Hall H One Last Time; ‘Dirk Gently’ To Make Debut

After the long-expected The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones announcements plus Doctor Who back in Hall H, it looked like all the big TV panels were public knowledge. However, turns out David Lynch and Showtime had a surprise for everyone, I’ve learned. With a number of cast members likely in attendance, the premium cabler’s revival of the iconic series created by Lynch and Mark Frost will be appearing in Hall H on July 21 in the afternoon, it seems. Being that the GoT panel is set for 1:30 PM and AMC’s Preacher making its Hall H premiere at 4 PM, Twin Peaks is expected to take the stage around 2:45 PM.

Showtime did not respond to a request for comment. Nor is it clear if Lynch will be onstage in Hall H.

Having debuted on May 21 with a two-episode opener, the technically third season of Twin Peaks has seen the return of Kyle MacLachlan as FBI Agent Dale Cooper and now his evil doppelganger, as well as cast members such as Michael Horse, Mädchen Amick, James Marshall and the Sheryl Lee-portrayed Laura Palmer herself among others from the original early 1990s series.

Also back in the new Twin Peaks, which I called “sometimes intentionally tedious, and amazing at the same time” in my video review, is director and co-writer of the 18-episode limited series Lynch as the FBI’s Gordon Cole and The X-Files’ David Duchovny as fellow FBI brass Denise Bryson. They and other past cast members are joined by a bevy of new additions to the franchise such as Naomi Watts and Laura Dern, who worked with Lynch on the features Mulholland Drive and Wild at Heart, respectively.

Predicting if Lynch will be at SDCC or any moves the director intends to make is often a mug’s game, but the 2001 Palme d’Or winner was in attendance for the Twin Peaks screening at the Cannes Film Festival just a few days after the revival’s cable debut so … guess you’ll have to be one of thousands in attendance at Hall H to find out for sure.

Deadline will be at SDCC this year as well as in Hall H and more as co-Editor-in-Chief Mike Fleming Jr, Anthony D’Alessandro and I lead our coverage from July 20-23.

Who Will Live And Who Will Die In Marvels Infinity War !

 

While there are still three movies on the docket before the next Avengers movie is released in theaters, the hype for Marvel Studios’ next blockbuster crossover event continues to build.

The cast list for Avengers: Infinity War seems to include every major hero that has been featured in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date, and mastermind Kevin Feige has said this and the still-untitled Avengers 4 will serve as the culmination of every movie thus far.

But that doesn’t mean every character we’ve come to know and love over the past decade will ride off into the sunset, as Feige’s comments seem to indicate that some might end up meeting their doom in the battle against Thanos.

In an interview with JoBlo, when asked if Infinity War would serve as the final chapter to some characters’ stories, Feige bluntly stated, “Yes.” He later expanded on that.

“We have another two years of hard work to even finish these movies,” Feige said. “And they [the actors] have a lot of hard work to do, so that’s all we’re thinking about, is completing those and delivering on the promise of those. Where it goes beyond that, we’ll see.”


It’s not entirely surprising that Infinity War would carry some high stakes, and the deaths of a character or two would certainly contribute to that. And when it comes to the power of Infinity Stones, nothing is ever set in stone.

But we can’t help but feel there is some unfinished business for some characters — is Black Widow going to bite it before she ever gets a solo film? We hope not, that’s just a waste of potential.

We’ll learn more as we get closer to the release date for Avengers: Infinity War on May 4, 2018.

I see the end of Iron Man as Robert Downey Jr. has said many times that he wants to finish the character.

As part of a panel with “Iron Fist” star Finn Jones, the head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb brought the house down by calling to the stage Mike Colter, who plays “Luke Cage,” Kristen Ritter, who plays “Jessica Jones,” and Charlie Cox, best known for playing “Daredevil.” Together, the quartet of Marvel’s “street-level” heroes make up the superhero supergroup that will have their own 2017 show on Netflix. “Iron Fist” will be ready to stream in March.

The cast also introduced Weaver — to thunderous applause — as “The Defenders” antagonist, thought the role is still a secret.

Marvel is owned by Disney, the parent company of ABC News.

“Power Rangers”

The movie reboot of the hit 1990’s TV show launched a trailer of its own Saturday at Madison Square Garden, an off-site for this year’s Comic Con.

The movie, out on March 24, stars the likes of Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Banks. The trailer immediately went viral, earning more than 12 million hits on YouTube alone.

New York Comic Con: 5 Must-See Panels From Day 2

comic conStan Lee shows up, as does ‘Star Wars’ – but could the day belong to Marvel’s Black Panther?

The second day of programming for New York Comic Con doesn’t just bring out Stan Lee for a conversation with two other comic book legends — although the line-up for that panel is amazing, mighty and uncanny — but there’s also Star Wars, 50 years of Marvel’s first black superhero and breaking gender stereotypes, too. (Not to mention BBC America taking over Madison Square Garden for a Doctor Who/Class presentation.)

Wondering where to be during Friday at NYCC? Here are some suggestions.

Marvel: 50 Years of Black Panther

It’s been half a century since Stan Lee and Jack Kirby unleashed T’Challa on the world in the pages ofFantastic Four No. 54, and with a New York Times-bestselling comic book series and an upcoming movie starring Chadwick Boseman on the horizon, the hero’s profile has never been higher. Ta-Nehisi Coates and Brian Stelfreeze, creators of the current comic, talk with fan-favorite writer Christopher Priest and others about the character’s appeal. Room 1A06, 11am-12pm

Star Wars Presents: A Writers Roundtable

Writers of Star Wars novels and comics — including Aftermath‘s Chuck Wendig and Poe Dameron comic writer Charles Soule — talk about what it’s like to write for a galaxy far, far away, in this Lucasfilm-moderated panel that’s sure to unveil at least one previously unknown tidbit of information. After all, Rogue One and Episode VIIIaren’t that far away, by comparison…BookCon@NYCC, 11am-12pm

DC’s Young Animal

The creators of Doom Patrol, Shade the Changing Girl and Mother Panic are on hand to talk about DC’s latest imprint, dedicated to reviving some of the company’s stranger heroes with even more unusual twists. For those who like their superheroes offering up something different than the norm, this is where you probably want to be. Room 1A06, 1:30pm-2:30pm

Stan Lee Creators Roundtable

As if the prospect of hearing Stan Lee spin a tale or two about the old days wasn’t entertaining enough, this Kevin Smith-moderated panel has two secret weapons in fellow guests Chris Claremont — A.K.A. the man responsible for the X-Men that you love — and Walter Simonson, whose fan-favorite run on The Mighty Thormight be even more fun than Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s take on Norse mythology. The Theater at Madison Square Garden, 6:00pm-7:00pm

Moving Beyond the Strong Female Character

t’s not just about ensuring that there’s gender parity in pop culture — it’s also about the way that characters are portrayed, as well. A group of pop culture writers and critics discuss ways in which things can move beyond stereotypes and well-meaning cliches, and point to some examples of shows, books and comics that got things right. Room 1A18, 6:45pm-7:45pm
