Comic Attack – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Deviations
Mark the date. It’s June 25th and the first (real) trailer for Heroes: Reborn is out.
I am so glad that one of my all-time favourite TV shows is being revived after being axed a couple of years ago. I bet I am not the only one. Yes, the show had its up and downs, but was ultimately good entertainment.Heck, I even enjoyed season 2. I was so, so mad when season four ended with Claire jumping off that Ferris wheel. Like, I almost broke the freaking TV. There will be quite a few new, but also many old faces.
WHERE ARE THE HEROES?
Returning cast members include Jack Coleman, Jimmy Jean-Louis, Masi Oka, and Greg Grunberg. The cast also includes Zachary Levi (of NBC’s “Chuck” and Thor: The Dark World) alongside with Robbie Kay (“Once Upon a Time”), Danika Yarosh (“Shameless”), Judith Shekoni (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2), Kiki Sukezane (Death Yankee 3), Henry Zebrowski (NBC’s “A to Z”) and Gatlin Green (“Criminal Minds”).
Now, behold the trailer:
Overall, for a 1-minute trailer, I find this one really awe-inspiring. The cinematography looks great and I got chills during the last couple of seconds. The world seems quite shaken up by something. It makes me wonder whether Claire’s little stunt was responsible, to some extent, and if it will be acknowledged at all. Also, too bad Peter and Sylar are not here. But, well, Sylar has to go to space with Star Trek.
So, what do you think? Where are the heroes? Will you be tuning in this time or will you skip it. I know I am adding this to my schedule. I have like 20 other shows at least.
Heroes: Reborn airs Thursday, September 24 at 8 p.m. EST.
