Tom Ellis as Lucifer in New DC Comics Television Series

Tom EllisFor the upcoming television pilot for Lucifer, Fox and Warner Bros. have found their leading devil. Tom Ellis has been cast in the main role based on the DC Comics character.

Ellis has a long history on television series dating back to 2000.

Disillusioned as the ruler of Hell, Lucifer ditches his kingdom and heads for greener pastures—Los Angeles, California. To occupy his time, the fallen angel helps the LAPD take down criminals.

The character goes back to 1962 where he debuted in Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen #65. He came to the forefront though when the character was added to Neil Gaiman’s run on The Sandman and then his own series.

The television series is one of many in the works based off of DC Comics series or characters. Supergirl is currently being worked on at CBS, and currently on television is Gotham, Arrow, The Flash, and Constantine.

Movie Review: Justice League: Throne of Atlantis

1000427919BRDLEFO_14cd592In Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, Cyborg discovers an imminent threat in the depths of the oceans so powerful that it rallies together the newly formed Justice League. Meanwhile, wandering thousands of feet above the ocean floor is drifter Arthur Curry, a man with strange powers who may be the last chance to bridge the ancient Atlantean world with our own. Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the Justice League must band together as they face off against warmongering Orm, an army of sea creatures, otherworldly weapons and perilous odds. In this all-new epic adventure from the DC Universe, mankind’s only hope of escaping from the darkness lies with the guiding light of a man – Aquaman!

The celebrity laden cast features primetime television stars Matt Lanter as Aquaman, Sam Witwer as Orm, Jason O’Mara as Batman, Christopher Gorham as Flash, Nathan Fillion as Green Lantern, Shemar Moore as Cyborg, Rosario Dawson as Wonder Woman, Jerry O’Connell as Superman, Sean Astin as Shazam, Sumalee Montano as Mera, Sirena Irwin as Queen Atlanna, and Harry Lennix as Manta.

frame-048147The latest DC Comics animated movie is an adaptation of the storyline that ran within the Justice League comic and Aquaman, with a lot of liberties taken as far as the details, and a much more condensed storyline. The result is an entertaining version, missing some of the “soul” of its source material, and just enough loose ends to make some irritated.

If you’ve watched any of the previous DC Comics animated films, this one follows much of the same style, formula, and the end results are similar. The acting at times is stiff, animation really cool, characterization a bit stilted, but for some reason it’s still very fun and entertaining. A nice fill in between big budget live action movies. It fills an itch not met by the television shows, or upcoming movie slate. It adapts popular stories, and gives us characters we might not see otherwise.

There’s issues here. Arthur accepts the fact he’s royalty and an Atlantean a bit too easy. Manta’s character is really changed So is Mera. But, it continues the nice thread of stories that began with Justice League: War and brings together the Batman series of movies into one cohesive animated universe.

Overall, the movie is a fun time, a bit violent with some swearing, earning its PG-13 rating, but good for young teens to check out and enjoy, or die-hard DC fans who are willing to overlook the various changes.

Justice League: Throne of Atlantis might not be perfect, but it’s entertaining, and that’s what matters. Overall, it’s a welcome addition to the ever growing DC line-up of animated films and I’m looking forward to the next one, Batman vs. Robin.

Overall rating: 7.5

CBS Finds Their Supergirl

melissa-benoistMelissa Benoist will be going from Glee to capes, as she’s been cast in the lead of CBS‘s upcoming television series based on Supergirl.

The series is based on the characters from DC Comics, and is a project from Warner Bros. TV. The series centers around Kara Zor-El (played by Benoist) who also escaped Krypton before its destruction, much like her more famous cousin Superman. She’s been in hiding not using her powers, but has now decided to stop out into the world and embrace her abilities and chance to be a hero.

Benoist is best known for her role on Glee, which she joined in 2012. She played Marley Rose who was one of the numerous new faces cast to replace the departing series regulars. She can also be seen as Nicole in the Oscar Nominated Whiplash.

This gets CBS into the superhero television series which is all the rage now and includes The Walking Dead, Gotham, The Flash, Arrow, iZombie, and more to come.
