Between DC’s New52 and Marvel’s Miles Morales, we’ve neglected our TV and Movie news this week. Here is a recap of a few things that have happened in the last couple of days.
‘Hope Falls’, a supernatural mystery comic, has been optioned by Future Films, according to Bleeding Cool. The comic book by Tony Lee and Dan Boultwood centers around “about a girl who returns to her home town after twenty years, who is then revealed to have been murdered by a group of men who are now prominent town citizens, and she’s out for some supernatural revenge.” We haven’t read the series.
A 12 half-hour series of an animated ‘X-Men’ will hit G4 starting October 21st at 11pm ET. Actor Scott Porter is in the title role of the series as Cyclops. In the series, the X-MEN are reunited following the death of a teammate, and are summoned by Charles Xavier to track down Hisako Ichiki, a missing teenage girl in Northern Japan. There, they encounter the fanatical and anti-mutant group, U-MEN, and discover what was important enough for Xavier to bring them back together. The answer is something that could potentially bridge the gap between mutants and humans, or tear the two species apart forever.
Chloe Moretz talked to Movies.com regarding ‘Kick-Ass 2.’ Here is the exchange.
Movies.com: Are they going to be able to do Kick-Ass 2 in time for you to be Hit Girl again?
CM: Actually, yeah, but I think I’m going to be a little bit older. I’d like to do it in the next year or two because I think that’s a really good time age-wise. You can show Hit Girl in a different light which would be a lot of fun.
Movies.com: Would you like to revisit her at different ages?
CM: I think it would be fun to show her, because you know her as this 11-year-old assassin, so I think it would be fun to show her as this twisted young adult, this 16-17-year-old Catwoman-y almost, twisted and dark person.
Movies.com: She could have a driver’s license then.
CM: Ex-ACTLY! Hit Girl could be riding Ducatis all over New York City. Duh.
