All good things seemingly come to an end amd this is one of those. KRYPTON on SyFy has been cancelled after two season amd its subsequent spin-off LOBO starring Emmitt J Scanlan will not be going forward.
The Superman origin story just aired its season 2 finale on August 14th and now it appears that it was also the series finale. But this may not be the ultimate end as Warner Scripted television is looking for other platforms for the series. A couple of course being the upcoming HBO MAX and the DC UNIVERSE streaming platform. Season 1 of KRYPTON is already showing on DC UNIVERSE. Also THE EXPANSE which was cancelled by SyFy was picked up by AMAZON Prime so there still may be hope for one if not both. It is also.worth noting that KRYPTON’s ratings declined in Season 2..
When it comes to LOBO, a deal was already in place for Emmett J. Scanlan, who played the character of Lobo in KRYPTON Season 2, to star in the project. KRYPTON executive producer Cameron Welsh was set as executive producer/writer on the spinoff
When Marvel Television’s partnership with Netflix came to an end and cancelled some favorite’s such as DAREDEVIL, JESSICA JONES, LUKE CAGE, IRON FIST and THE PUNISHER, fans quickly learned that the streaming team up was not done. They had teamed up with Hulu for a number of new original series, including Hit-Monkey, Tigra & Dazzler, and M.O.D.O.K.
But thanks to Jeph Loeb, there is now new and exciting information as what’s to come with the Marvel and Hulu partnership and specifically whats to come for Ghost Rider and Helstrom.
Recently while speaking with Deadline, Loeb said that the horror filled shows will fall under a banner called “Adventure Into Fear,” Now for comic books fans who are wondering why this may sound familiar, it is because that name shared by a Marvel Comics title from the 1970s. Loeb also spoke on that while negotiations where happening with Hulu they realized “there were three or four shows that” could fit under the “Adventure into Fear” banner. Now of course two of these are obviously the ones we know of GHOST RIDER and HELSTROM, Loeb confirmed there are still a couple of shows that have yet to be “revealed to the world.”
Finally, even though most will classify this collection of Marvel series as horror (i.e Marvel knights), Loeb said that isn’t the term he’d use, because mainly horror is a bit too broad of a description.
“No, it’s terror, because when you say horror, it means so many different things……What we love is the notion of how we can present a Marvel hero who was truly feared and truly believed that they were a monster, but that, as the stories go on, they realize, oh, I’m the hero of the story, I’m not the villain of the story.” Loeb spoke on how the shows would be different from those that are filled with guts and gore.
LEGION on FX ended last night and while many were upset to see the brilliant show by Noah Hawley go away there was still a bit of hope he would stay around the marvel world with his DOCTOR DOOM movie script. The film which was said to be a unique take on the origin story of the super villain and not have any involvement of the Fantastic Four had many excited to see what Hawley would bring.
Unfortunately it seems that the excited which has been built up now must be cast to the side as Hawley in a recent interview revealed that the movie is “done” and that he has no idea whether Marvel Studios is interested in moving forward with his take on the ruler of Latveria.
“I mean, where it stands is now that the movie is done and Legion is done and I’ve taken a little time off because someone told me there was this word “vacation,” which means you don’t work, which sounded really interesting to me. But you know, I need to circle back to them and announce that I would love to make it and figure out if that’s something that is possible. Whether or not they already have a plan in place for what to do with those characters or whether they’re open to my kind of vision for what to do with those characters. But it’s sort of on me right now to go push them, which I will do as soon as I come up for air.”
Well that is a sad thing to here because we can be pretty much certain that Marvel studios big boss, Kevin Feige has no plans for a Victor Von Doom solo movie heading into phase 5 of the MCU and with the Fantastic Four set to make their arrival soon its a sure bet a solo movie based around their nemesis would be a focus. Not to mention Doom may not be big enough of a threat to carry over on a major level the way in which we saw Thanos.
Of course, this doesn’t completely remove a chance that Hawley ends up doing something in the MCU, but just like that MULTIPLE MAN movie and the mysterious Kitty Pryde project, it seems Doctor Doom solo outing will not happen.

The WOW factor for the annual Arrowverse crossover keeps happening. First it was annouced that Black Lightning and other characters from the show will be involved in the annual event now another blockbuater announcement was revealed today at the TCA’s.
Kevin Conroy who voiced Batman in BATMAN THE ANIMATED SERIES as its spinoffs, will join the cast of CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS in the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman . Many have argued that even thougg not physically seen on screen he is the best Batman of all time. The addition of Conroy comes along with announcements that Burt Ward (Batman) would appear, and Brandon Routh would reprise his role from SUPERMAN RETURNS.
“CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS ” will be the biggest crossover event that The CW’s DC Universe TV series have attempted yet, with five series (ARROW, THE FLASH, SUPERGIRL, DC’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW, and BATWOMAN). The story will, at least according to the onscreen canon established so far and comments by cast and producers at Comic Con, feature the death of Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), who struck a mysterious deal with The Monitor (Lamonica Garrett during last season’s “ELSEWORLDS” crossover in order to save the lives of Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), who were “destined” to die in the event.
The CW is gearing up for what is arguably going to be the biggest crossover ever with its Arrowverse shows in CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS. The shows that are the foundation for this are ARROW, THE FLASH, SUPERGIRL DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW.
One show that is notably missing from the list is THE CW’s BLACK LIGHTNING. The show starring Cress Williams centered around Jefferson Pierce a former superhero turned high school principal who is brought back into the fight to save his hometown of Freeland and daughters as Black Lightning. He is also aided in his vigilante battle by his two superpowered daughters and his doctor wife. They all battle against the villainous Tobias Whale and other metahumans.
Many people were wondering whether or not the show would cross over into the arrowverse fold or would the titular hero even be part of the crossover and now we may have our answer.
In an article from FANDOMWIRE.COM is seems that is prettt much official that Black Lightning will be making an appearance in CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS. Cress Williams seelingly has confirmed this via his twitter.
It is being stated that Black Lightning will not have a major role but his will be similar to that of Batwoman’s in last years, ELSEWORLDS.
Black Lightning Season 3 is set to air on October 21, 2019, and will see Cress Williams (Jefferson Pierce/Black Lightning), China Anne McClain (Jennifer Pierce / Lightning), Nafessa Williams (Anissa Pierce / Thunder), and James Remar (Peter Gambi).
Are you excited for this potential blockbuster news and how do you hope for it to play out?
