Now not the Marvel comics character Shang-Chi, but a movie version of the ’70s Tv show which starred David Carradine and also had a comic book series. Deadline have the details..
I’m sure any CBMer of a certain age, or even those wise enough to catch some re-runs, remember the Kung Fu Tv series fondly. It starred the late David Carradine as a Shaolin Monk possessed of great martial arts skills as he wanders the American wild west in search of his brother, adventure and enlightenment. It was pretty damn awesome. And now Legendary Entertainment are bringing us a big screen version with none other than Hudson himself at the helm..
Bill Paxton is in talks to direct Kung Fu, a screen adaptation of the classic 1972 TV series that starred David Carradine. Paxton, who
And who should we thank for this major spoiler? The culprit is Frank Darabont. The producer, and sometimes director of the outstanding zombie show for AMC lets a few juicy tidbits slip out. See what he gives away…
While chatting with AMC Frank Darabont talks about what’s in store for the second season of The Walking Dead.
What follows is an excerpt from the interview:
“I don’t know if we’re giving anything away, but something as simple in the comic books as ‘Lori gets pregnant’ winds up being sort of a fantastic complication on screen. In the story we’re telling, it’s just not that simple as it was in the comic book because you have those opportunities to really spin the story out in many different layers,” said Darabont.
The showrunner for AMC’s Golden Globe and Saturn Award winning zombie apocalypse drama also revealed that he jumped in to direct an action scene involving one of the ‘new’ characters. “I jumped in and directed a sequence involving T-Dog trying to elude a zombie in a big snarl of abandoned cars on a deserted highway. It’s a bit of cat-and-mouse in all the dead traffic, and it was terrific fun to shoot.”

A brief promo featuring Adrianne Palicki as Wonder Woman has found it’s way online, and while it’s literally only made up of a bit of slo-mo walking and a logo, it gives us a taste of what we’re missing…

Many thanks to Bleeding Cool.
Not much I know, but does this make you wish they’d given the show a chance? Would you watch the the pilot episode if it was released online? Be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place!
PopCandies TV dropped a new Wonder Woman video straight from the set of the new tv show. Hit the jump to check it out.
The video is a bit boring, but hey it’s our first glimpse of the new Wonder Woman in action. What say you? Are you going to watch the pilot? What does this show need to really rake in the viewers? Sound off below!
The comic book creator reveals that he’s still not been contacted about a cameo in Captain America and shares his thoughts on a new Hulk TV series and Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man…
On A Cameo In Captain America: The First Avenger:
“I don’t know. They’re filming it in London and I don’t have the time to go there. Now if they shoot any scenes here in the States, I’m sure that I will be in one of them. But I wouldn’t imagine that they’re going to change their whole shooting schedule just to accommodate my cameo, so your guess is as good as mine at the moment.”
On The Prospects Of A New Hulk TV Series:
“Oh that’s very exciting, and I think it’ll probably be very good. I can’t wait to see it.”
On Andrew Garfield Being Cast As Spider-Man:
“I’m not that familiar with him, but if the powers that be chose him, I’m sure he’ll be good. You remember when Tobey Maguire was first selected, most of the fans were angry. They felt, what kind of a guy is that for a superhero? Nobody thought it was a good idea. Yet he turned out to be great. The people at Marvel who do these things are really pretty smart. If they chose this guy, he’ll probably be terrific.”
