A lot of DC Comics TV/Movie news that deserves a little attention.
First up: The Wonder Woman pilot was not picked up by NBC. After all the hype and the controversy surrounding the costume, NBC passed on the rebooted series by David E. Kelley. No details were released (that I could find) on why NBC passed, but there doesn’t seem to be a future for the series seeing as how all the other networks passed on the script (saying it was terrible) before NBC ordered a pilot.
So, for now at least, Diana will have to stay on Themyscira.
Another DC comics inspired series, Human Target, has been axed over on FOX. Honestly, I saw this one coming. While the show was fairly entertaining, I think it struggled to find an audience. Part James Bond part crime dramedy, Human Target was just a little too over-the-top and weird for most audiences. With Smallville’s run over on the WB after ten seasons, I want to say that this is the first time in a decade that DC hasn’t has some sort of presence on television – is The Brave and the Bold still on Cartoon Network?
It’s not all bad news for DC, though – We have a new movie from DC Premiere, the animation house that’s been putting out the fantastic DC movies over the past couple of years – which I love.
I give you the trailer for Green Lantern: Emerald Knights (Coming to DVD on June 17th)
