The year was 2006 and everyone was obsessed with the adventures of Peter Patrelli and Hiro Nakamura as they uncovered their new super-powers. Unfortunately, that awesome first season (1 parts Lost, 1 part X-Men), descended into mediocrity in Season 2, and pure crap by Season 3. 

But now, long after we as a society decided to pretend those four years of television never happened, NBC is bringing back Heroes. We'll keep our fingers crossed, but it doesn't look very super in this trailer.

Remember when Sean Connery turned down Lord of the Rings to be the lead in a horrible adaptaion of Alan Moore's graphic novel The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen? The movie flopped so hard, Connery chose to retire from acting altogether, and now fox wants to give it another go.

League follows a group of characters famous from 19th Century British sci-fi/fantasy novels as they team up to take on the most villainous threats. Alan Quartermain, The Invisible Man, Captain Nemo, Doctor Jekyll/Mr. Hyde, and a full vampire version of Mina Harker round out the cast.

Fox tried to produce a TV series in 2013, but it never went beyond the pilot. While it feels like they're just hoping to hold onto the movie rights a little bit longer, let's hope Fox can make something decent from the property this time around.

The guys behind 21 Jump Street and The LEGO Movie, Phil Lord and Chris Miller are creating a rebooted pilot for cult 80's TV show, The Greatest American Hero. If you don't know, the show revolves around a timid school teacher who's gifted with Superpowers by aliens, kind've like Green Lantern meets Mr. Feeny sans the valuable life lessons.

Plus, check out that awesome credit sequence.

Surprising news! Lionsgate is going to make a Power Rangers movie!



The movie studio is partnering with Saban Brands to import the martial arts team to the silver screen. While there is no news about cast, director or anything concrete, Haim Saban did have this to say:

They [Lionsgate] have the vision, marketing prowess and incredible track record in launching breakthrough hits from 'The Hunger Games' to 'Twilight' and 'Divergent,." In partnership with the Lionsgate team, we're confident that we will capture the world of the Power Rangers and translate it into a unique and memorable motion picture phenomenon with a legacy all its own.
Will Lionsgate continue the Power Rangers legacy by creating an action movie for kids, or will the new movie(s) embrace a little more grit to appeal to nostalgic adult audiences? By comparing it to "Hunger Games", I'm guessing the latter.



As long as we get more Green Ranger, who cares?

During Saturday's Olympics broadcast, NBC aired this teaser for a Heroes reboot. Due 2015, the 13 episode mini-series will be a stand-alone story that does not connect to the 2006-2010 series, what they should have done instead of Season 2.

It's refreshing that siblings Johnny and Sue Storm are set to be interracial, but I like my superhero squads a little older. What do you think, too young? Read the full article at Uproxx.
