Even though it was extremely exciting to hear the Kamala Khan would be getting her on show on Disney + in MS MARVEL there has yet to be word as to who would be portraying the superhero.
But some very interesting and intriguing casting news seemingly hints that not only are we getting Khan but also a visitor in wait for it …an INHUMAN
According to The Illuminderdi, both Red Dagger and Kamran are currently being cast for the series. Kamran is specifically named as an Inhuman in the breakdown. Now everyone who remembers (and more than likely wants to forget) the failed ABC show INHUMANS and how it seemed that they would never be spoken of again. Well it seems now that Marvel Studios has the reins of all of the properties a reboot can be given a chance.
For those unfamiliar with Red Dagger, aka Kareem,in the comics he is a student from Khan’s neighborhood in Pakistan who operates as a costumed vigilante by night. It’s said that there will be “an undeniable romantic connection between him and Kamala” on the show.
Kamran, meanwhile, shares an Inhuman bond with Kamala and becomes her ally before ultimately betraying her. Now this may or may not happen within the show but he is described as being a “morally corrupt Inhuman” in the breakdown.
The breaking says that Marvel is currently searching for two actors in the 17 to 25-year-old age range to play these Muslim supporting characters.
Season one of DOOM PATROL on the DC Universe took the world by storm. With interesting characters, adult humor and so much more, when the season ended people have been chomping at the bit for the second season. This is especially since TITANS has already aired its 2nd season and currently filming its third.
Now there is some exciting casting news coming out about the team of doomed souls (Abigail Shapiro will play Dorothy Spinner) and this announcement has a major connection to one of the not so likely heroes.
Karen Obilom (GAMES PEOPLE PLAY) has landed a recurring role as Roni Evers according to DEADLINE. Evers is reportedly “a military veteran with a mysterious past who Vic Stone/Cyborg (Wade) meets while attending a PTSD support group.”
It seems that the two characters may start off bonding over their traumatic experiences, and it will eventually go wrong. Obilom appears to be playing a gender-bent version of Ronald Evers, a character that eventually becomes one of Cyborg’s foes and a cyborg himself.
DOOM PATROL season 2 does not currently have a premiere date, but Diane Guerrero, Brendan Frasier, Jovian Wade, Timothy Dalton, April Bowlby, and Matt Bomer have been confirmed to return.

We have been waiting for more information on the upcoming Greg Berlanti produced GREEN LANTERN series for HBO Max. Information more specifically as to which members of the Green Lantern corp, who would be starring in the series, plot and so much more. Thanks to the current Television Critics Association winter press tour we are not beginning to have some of the answers fall into place.
HBO Max’s head of originals, Sarah Aubrey, laid out a few details as to what the show in itself would be about. Aubrey says that the series “will span several decades and focus on origin stories and two major Green Lanterns on Earth.” It was also mentioned that it will feature Sinestro, a popular Green Lantern villain.
During the Television Critics Association press tour on Wednesday, Aubrey said they are in the “early stages of talking to him about.” She continued that it “will span several decades and focus on origin stories of two major Green Lanterns on earth.” She added it will also feature Sinestro, a major villain from the comics.
Sinestro is a former member of the Green Lantern corp. who eventually turns evil. He was played by Mark Strong in the 2009 DC movie that starred Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan. Now the question which as of right now is up to interpretation is which Green Lantern members will be the focus.
There are many fans who would not mind seeing another iteration of Hal Jordan, possibly Jessica Cruz, Guy Gardner, Kyle Rayner and potentially John Stewart. Stewart has been a hot subject for many fans of Berlanti’s Arrowverse on the CW. The reason being many have been hoping to see John Diggle played by David Ramsey pick up the ring and become the guardian of Earth.
There have been many potential clues or Easter Eggs as to whether or not Diggle actually is John Stewart. clues such as his stepfather, Gen. Roy Stewart (played by Ernie Hudson) who was introduced in ARROW. Along with a reference in which Barry Allen from Earth-90 (played by John Wesley Shipp) looks at Diggle and mentions he does not have in ring on in the ELSEWORLDS crossover event.
Stay tuned for more information about this show as it develops.
Many people believed that it would NEVER happen and that the worlds of the Arrowverse on The CW and the DC Film Universe would ever intertwine or cross over. Well now that has all been SHATTERED.
In the fourth episode of the CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS crossover, the two met as Ezra Miller’s THE FLASH met Grant Gustin’s THE FLASH. This happened as Oliver Queen, now as The Spectre gave Barry Allen a boost in his speed potential and allowed him to run into the speed force. While in there he is taken to the STAR Labs cortex and is met up by Miller.
The two Flashes then jokingly banter back and forth in disbelief before Miller disappears and then Gustin returns to the speed force.
MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D may be coming to an end on ABC but it seems as if it may not be the last superhero show we will see on the television network.
During the winter TCA press tour, ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke said that she was looking forward to working with Marvel Studios President and Chief Creative Officer Kevin Feige. She also made it be known that they had not discussed specifically which of the Marvel comics based characters would be suited for broadcast television.
“We love our partners at Marvel and we’re sad to see [Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D] go, it’s been a big part of our history. We’re looking forward to working with Kevin Feige and we’re at the very beginning of conversations with him now about what a Marvel and ABC show might look like. Right now, Marvel’s focus has been on Disney+, as it should be,” This from Burke as she spoke with DEADLINE.
Who would you like to see fill the broadcast television hole that will be left behind after AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D takes its final bow?
News was just released the CW has gone forward with early renewal to its current scripted shows. This includes the Arrowverse which will continue even though its flagship show ARROW ends this season.
The CW has renewed BLACK LIGHTNING (season 4), THE FLASH (season 7), DC’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW (season 6), SUPERGIRL (season 6) and its freshmen show BATWOMAN has been renewed for its sophomore season.
Other shows that were also renewed through the network were ALL AMERICAN, DYNASTY, IN THE DARK, LEGACIES, ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO, CHARMED and RIVERDALE.
The Marvel television that we have known for the past decade (yes, the same one that gave us the INHUMANS lol) is unfortunately shutting down.
This automatically leaves people to wonder what will happen to the upcoming four announced animated series headed over to Hulu, the upcoming HELSTROM as well as the last season of AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. will still be made. Everything will be folded into Marvel Studios.
“The decision has been made to complete Marvel TV projects that are currently in production, but not continue with any further development,” noted the TV division Tuesday. Layoffs are expected with the change in status for the once burgeoning small screen team, but not definite positions have been identified at present for the chop.
Things have been one blow after another for Marvel television. From the cancellation of the Marvel Shows at Netflix (DAREDEVIL, JESSICA JONES, LUKE CAGE, IRON FIST, THE PUNISHER), the scrapping of GHOST RIDER and the cancellations of CLOAK AND DAGGER as well as the recent announcement of the end of RUNAWAYS. The writing was seemingly already on the walls and everything has finally played out the way it should.
With the set of Marvel Studios original shows set to hit Disney plus soon it is going to be interesting to see what happens.
