Episode 86 – You Can’t Go Back Again

On this episode of Nerd & Tie we discuss The Inhumans hitting the small screen, Hayao Miyazaki coming out of retirement (again), react to the American Ghost in the Shell trailer, consider the new series Neil Gaiman is developing for Fox, and put our heads together about the possibility of a Snowpiercer television series. We also talk about what a disaster Rewind Con apparently turned out being, and Nick went to Daisho Con.

Also, Pher has a very important announcement about his future at Nerd & Tie. It’s a big deal.

TNT Orders ‘Snowpiercer’ Television Series Pilot

Just over a year ago we mentioned that a television series based off of the 2013 film Snowpiercer. Well, it seems like the project is steadily moving forward, as the project just got a pilot order from the TNT network.

The team behind the series appears to be intact from a year ago, with the project being developed by Tomorrow Studios and the pilot will be written by Josh Friedman. The film itself was based on the 1982 French comic Le Transperceneige about a post-Apocalyptic civilization on a constantly moving train, and while it was visually stunning, there were some issues with the plot. Hopefully the television series will be a new adaptation though, and can take the time to correct these issues.

Frankly it’ll just be nice to see more post-apocalyptic fiction that doesn’t involve any zombies.

Do We Know Our ‘Titans’ Roster Now?

TNT’s live action adaptation of Teen Titans, simply titled Titans, hasn’t made any official announcements yet, but according to Nerdist the pilot script has been leaked… and they have it. While plenty is subject to change from the draft of the pilot script that they have (assuming it’s real), they are pretty sure what the lineup of characters in Titans is going to be.

Unsurprisingly, the lead is Dick Grayson. Grayson will still be using his Robin identity at the beginning of the episode, but should be calling himself Nightwing by the end of it. From the Bat-Family, Barbara Gordon will be also join the team as Oracle in everything but name (as the character will be the team’s computer expert and be wheelchair bound). The rest of the team will be filled out by Raven, Starfire, Hawk and Dove.

Team regulars Beast Boy and Cyborg don’t seem to appear in the pilot. With Beast Boy, it’s understandable — frankly, his powers would look pretty goofy in a live action setting (not to mention the high cost of working with live animals to make it look convincing). I am disappointed not to see Cyborg though.

I mean, assuming all of this is real.

Will TNT’s Titans take place in the Arrowverse?

With Gotham, Arrow, and Flash on this season (and a Supergirl and Teen Titans series in development), DC Comics properties are down right littering the television landscape. Of these properties, right now only Arrow and Flash share a continuity. And while Fox’s Gotham and CBS’s Supergirl will likely always remain independent, there’s actually a chance TNT’s forthcoming Teen Titan series will end up in the Arrowverse.

I’m as shocked as you are.

While talking with Adweek, CW President Mark Pedowitz hinted at the possibility, and I hope that this ends up happening. It would, of course, require the cooperation of TNT – but both series are produced by Warner Bros. television… so it’s not that crazy of an idea.

Mostly I just want this so I don’t have to pay attention to twenty different versions of the same villains. Which with the Arrow/Gotham overlap is likely to already happen.

Episode 30 – Prophet of Doom

On this episode of Nerd & Tie, we webcast to a live audience for the first time! We also talked about Supergirl coming to CBS, a Teen Titans TV show on TNT, Obi-Wan Kenobi getting his own flick, Deadpool FINALLY getting his own movie, Agent Carter showing up in Agents of SHIELD, Chris Evan’s future as Captain America, Guardians of the Galaxy appearing in Avengers 3, and a Firefly film that amazingly doesn’t suck.

Seriously, you should watch it.

It’s pretty awesome.

Also we talk about the “Ender’s Game” movie from a while back at the beginning. Because Trae made the mistake of watching it.

TNT Developing Live Action Teen Titans TV Show

In a move that kind of hit us out of left field, Variety is reporting that under development for TNT is a Teen Titans TV show tentatively titled “Titans.”

Try saying that ten times fast.

The live action adaptation would feature Dick Grayson as Nightwing forming a team of young superheroes… because as we all know, the one thing we needed was a third competing unrelated ongoing onscreen adaptation of part of the Batman mythos. Other characters expected to appear are Raven and Starfire, and you never know – the show could end up pretty good.

On the other hand, this is the same network that made the Witchblade TV series.
