Game of Thrones Is Definitely Ending After Season 8…But What About a Spin-Off?

The bad news just keeps coming for us, fellow Game of Thrones fans, and this is the worst of all: season eight will officially be the last season.

HBO president Casey Bloys confirmed Saturday during HBO’s summer press tour that there are only two more seasons left of everybody’s favorite show. Combine this with the fact that season seven will be shorter than normal, and it will be delayed, and won’t be eligible for the 2017 Emmys, and we might as well all just go into hibernation for the next year.

First look at Tyler Hoechlin as Superman from Supergirl Season 2

For the first time since Smallville ended in 2011, there’s a new Superman on television…and he’s not afraid of flights and tights!

The CW has unveiled the first official photograph of former Teen Wolf star Tyler Hoechlin as Superman alongside Supergirl herself, Melissa Benoist. And we have to say that it’s very cool to finally see the Last Son of Krypton with the Girl of Steel in live-action!

Game of Thrones will return next summer with just seven episodes

The next season of Game of Thrones will officially debut later than usual and with fewer episodes. HBO now confirms that season seven will air next summer with seven episodes, three fewer than the usual 10.

“Now that winter has arrived on Game of Thrones, executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss felt that the storylines of the next season would be better served by starting production a little later than usual, when the weather is changing,” said HBO programming president Casey Bloys in today’s announcement. “Instead of the show’s traditional spring debut, we’re moving the debut to summer to accommodate the shooting schedule.”

Benioff and Weiss revealed on the UFC Unfiltered podcast earlier this month that shooting had been pushed back due to the weather. “We’re starting a bit later because, you know, the end of this season, winter is here, and that means sunny weather doesn’t serve our purposes anymore,” they said at the time.

That season seven will have only seven episodes also jibes with what the show runners recently said about the final stretch of the acclaimed show. In an interview with Deadline, Benioff stated that the show had 15 episodes left in it at most. All this means that the final season will have up to eight episodes to show who will win the Iron Throne.

Comic-Con 2016: First The Flash Season 3 trailer debuts

Dr. Alchemy will be one of The Flash‘s primary villains in season 3, the first trailer for the upcoming season reveals.

The footage, debuted during the show’s San Diego Comic-Con panel, shows Barry dealing with the repercussions of his actions in the season 2 finale. Having completely altered the timeline, Barry returns to present day to find a completely different world than the one he left. Cisco is the richest man in America, Barry’s parents are still happily married, and Iris has no idea who he is.

The trailer also teases one of the season’s big bads, Dr. Alchemy. Another speedster can be glimpsed in the trailer, however, as can Kid Flash.

The Flash star Grant Gustin revealed that the show’s take on the comic book storyline Flashpoint won’t likely last as long as many fans are expecting. Additionally, the Legends of Tomorrow panel revealed that villains from The Flash and Arrow will appear in the second season.

The Flash returns to The CW on Oct. 4.

‘The Flash’ cast talk Flashpoint and more at Comic-Con panel

In a new trailer for The Flash that screened Saturday evening at Comic-Con, Barry (Grant Gustin) narrates, “Some things happen by chance, and some things happen because we make them happen.”

There could be no better theme for Season 3 of The Flash, which — as has already been excitedly reported — will deal with Flashpoint aka a new world thanks the events of the Season 2 finale, where Barry chooses to go back in time, save his parents, and live in a world where they survive.

Needless to say, this is going to have some major consequences throughout the universe, many of which were teased during the panel.

Below, check out 10 things we learned about the new seasons of both The Flash andSupergirl (which had its Comic-Con panel right beforehand). To get it out of the way early: Yes, more crossovers — this time among all the properties — are planned.

1. When The Flash picks up, it’s three months after the events in the finale. “First Barry doesn’t realize how much has changed,” Gustin teased. “The whole reason he did this is his parents would be alive. When we first see him, he’s unaware of what changes are out there.”

2. “We’re doing two Big Bads [this year],” executive producer Todd Helbing explained. “One is a speedster. The other is Dr. Alchemy.”

3. As seen in the new footage, Cisco has undergone quite a transformation in the new timeline.  Cisco is “an ostentatious billionaire,” Carlos Verdes teased about his character. His speciality? “Making money. He’s always flexing how much money he has and how rich he is.”

4. Tom Felton will be joining The Flash as Julian Dorn. Felton was fairly tight-lipped about where his character’s loyalties are, but when asked if Barry and Co. should see him as a threat, he cracked, “I think any guy I play you should see as a threat… There’s definitely some friction between Grant and Julian.” Well played, Draco Malfoy.

5. On the Supergirl front, the show will be moving from CBS to The CW when it returns — making even more crossovers between the various metahuman shows likely. “We’re so grateful to CBS [for] launching this show, but we were all thrilled to learn about this because we do so much with The CW,” Supergirl executive producer Sarah Schechter said. “If you say metahuman, they know what you’re talking about. We’re happy to have everyone in the same place, literally and channel-wise.”

6. What’s Alex up to in Season 2? “What’s really cool about this season is we’ve established so much about who Alex is in the DEO and her relationships with John and Kara,” Chyler leigh shared. “But we didn’t really get to see much of her outside those elements. This season is an opportunity to see who she is and what she wants outside of that. …Where does Alex live? I have no idea [laughs]”

7. Quick recap: Jimmy and Kara kissed at the end of Season 1 of Supergirl. Is that ship going to sail come Season 2? “We ended up in a liplock,” Mehcad Brooks teased. “It’s weird because I read [episode]  201 and it starts with our wedding [laughs]. It’s a workplace relationship; it’s a new relationship it’s going to have ups and down. We’re both figuring out who we are and that may get in the way. We’ll see!”

8. Tyler Hoechlin is joining Supergirl as Superman. How does it feel to step into the iconic suit – which Hoechlin noted he has not tried on yet? “Incredibly surreal. I know this character means so much to so many people. There’s a responsibly to the character. I take it on with great pride. I’m excited to see what we do with that character in the context of this great world you’ve created.”

9. Wonder Woman Lynda Carter is joining the show as the President. “I think we should expect that a female president is going to lead well,” Schechter said with a knowing wink. “We’re with her.”

10. Between Melissa Benoist’s stint on Glee and Jeremy Jordan’s on Smash, it’s no wonder many fans are pulling for a musical episode of Supergirl at some point. “It would be silly not to recognize all the talent,” Schechter noted. “We’ve thought about it.” The cast then pointed out that between takes on set, it already is pretty much a 24/7 musical.

Psst…can we get some footage of that? Thanks in advance.

Supergirl will premiere Oct. 10; The Flash will premiere Oct. 4

Game Of Thrones shares bloopers at Comic-Con panel

For a show that has become as tonally dark as the worst winter in the history of the Seven Kingdoms, Game of Thrones‘ lighter moments of comedic relief are as life-giving as the R’hllor, the Lord of Light. Knowing full well that Comic-Con attendees are rabid for any new information about or footage from Westeros after the most epically grim and gripping season finale to date, HBO graced fans with the funniest supercut in the history of the show, and it’s a breath of fresh air.

Below you can peep an entire blooper reel from season six, featuring Peter Dinklage messing up the word “benevolent” a thousand times, Kit Harington covering up his junk before he reanimates, Rory McCann (the Hound) struggling to chop wood with an ax, and Emilia Clarke seriously butchering the Dothraki language. It is an incredibly lighthearted look at the moments from Thrones that are otherwise anxiety inducing and tense. Sure, we rely on Tyrion for these moments in the show, but that is what makes his IRL bloopers that much funnier.

During the panel, HBO also released a beautiful behind-the-scenes look at the sets and props that are evidently from the forthcoming seventh season. We see hands cutting and smoothing wooden props, sharpening metal swords, and setting up complex sets. The biggest tease from the video comes when we see the script from the upcoming season finale being dropped on a desk in front of us. So close but so far away! Just let us read one page, David and DB! Come on dudes, we can’t wait until next summer to find out what happens to the inhabitants (living and dead) of the realm.

Ghost Rider Is Coming to Agents of SHIELD

It turns out all those Hellfire Chains printed on the sides of trains and buses wasn’t a misdirect after all. Marvel revealed just now, partially on the show floor of SDCC, that Ghost Rider is coming to Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D. Now, if you have not been keeping up with the current Marvel comic book Universe, this Spirit of Vengeance might look a little different to you. For starters, he drives a car, not a motorcycle.

The Ghost Rider that’ll be raising hell on Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D is Robbie Reyes, for the recent All-New Ghost Rider. The series, written by Felipe Smith and drawn by the incredible Tradd Moore was tons of fun and one of Marvel’s coolest looking books. Moore’s design was a Ghost Rider like we have never seen before and the twist of having drive a sick muscle car as opposed to a motorcycle was a cool change of pace. Smith made Reyes and his supporting cast drastically different than the previous Spirits of Vengeance, which again added to the books uniqueness. If you have not read it, we highly, highly recommend check it out. Tradd Moore’s art alone is worth the cover price.

 

All-New Ghost Rider from Marvel Comics

 

The addition of Ghost Rider to the television world is an interesting one. The character has already had to failed film attempts that starred Nicholas Cage as Johnny Blaze, probably the most well known Ghost Rider at that point. Of course, The Punisher has had a rough go cinematically, and his recent appearance in Netflix’s Daredevil series was a huge hit with fans, so maybe some TV time is exactly what Ghost Rider needs.

We also know that actor Gabriel Luna will be playing Reyes, so it looks like they are sticking with the young, inexperienced version of the character we saw in the comic series. All-New GhostRider was really, really great, so here’s hoping Marvel can capture that energy on the small screen. It’s going to require lots of special effects and lots and lots of fire in order to get the look right. Fingers crossed on this one, guys. Either way, vengeance is coming to Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D and we’ll have to wait until September to see if they are ready for it.

These Game of Thrones Stars Picked Who They Want to Rule Westeros

The seventh season of Game of Thrones won’t go into production for months so, on the show’s Hall H panel at Comic-Con, there wasn’t much in the way of news. There was, however, much to discuss about who all the panelists thought should end up on the Iron Throne.

It began when Sophie Turner had a pretty surprising answer when she was asked if Sansa Stark felt her brother, Jon Snow, was worthy of ruling the North. “I’m not sure [Sansa] believes Jon is capable of running Winterfell and the north,” she said, “He doesn’t have the intellect, knowledge or experience that she has and I concur.”

At that point, each member of the cast was asked who they’d love to see sit on the Iron Throne, as the ruler of Westeros, when the show comes to a close.

Liam Cunningham, who plays Davos Seaworth, said the only clue we have about the end of the series is George R.R. Martin’s suggestion the answer is “bittersweet.” For Cunningham, that means he has a vision of a white walker on the throne. He pictures the Night King, with a leg thrown over the side, smoking a big cigar.

John Bradley, who plays Sam Tarly, didn’t want to answer the question because he was worried he’d make a guess and end up be right. He didn’t want some footage popping up in a few years of this moment and him spoiling it for everyone. Nevertheless, out of loyalty, he said Jon Snow.

Nathalie Emmanuel, who plays Missandei, went with a similar answer—she picked Danaerys out of loyalty.

Conleth Hill, who plays Lord Varys (looking unrecognizable with a full head of flowing locks), quickly dismissed the question and said he knows for sure who’ll be sitting on the throne at the end, so he can’t say.

Turner,said she’d like to see Littlefinger on the throne. This, of course, got a chorus of boos to which Turner had a ready response. “It would be fun and quirky, sadistic, and we like that kind of thing,” she reminded fans. “We all watch Game of Thrones.”

Faye Marsay, who played The Waif, also went the simple route. She said Arya Stark would make a great ruler.

Being a bit of a homer, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, a.k.a. Bran Stark, said he’d want four Starks to rule. Jon on the throne, Sansa advising, Arya kicking ass and Bran doing his tree wizard thing.

Kristian Nairn, the actor who plays everyone’s favorite lovable protector had an excellent answer that surprisingly wasn’t “Hodor.” He chose Brienne of Tarth, with the caveat that he didn’t think the Iron Throne would be worth much after the invasion of the White Walkers.

Ironically, it was Iwan Rheon, Ramsay Bolton himself, who had the least peaceable answer to the question: He suggested they melt down the Iron Throne and install a democracy.
