NBC Is Doing Even More Heroes That Will Be Impossible For Them to Screw Up More Than They Already Have

Look at it this way: As big a disappointment as Heroes Reborn and its just-announced prequel series might be, there’s no way it can be as big a disappointment as the OG Heroes became. Right? Right?!

Heroes Actor Joins Agents of SHIELD as Hulk-Chasing Colonel Glenn Talbot

It’s easy to forget that the Hulk has his own franchise, given that the character has been played by a different actor in each of his appearances (well, unless you count the end of Iron Man 3). It might also be that there hasn’t been a Hulk movie since before Marvel really started pushing the shared universe idea, which is a pity, because Mark Ruffalo did a pretty great job. But bits of the Hulk’s expanded cast have now been confirmed to appear in Agents of SHIELD.

Today In News We Did Not Expect: Heroes Is Coming Back

Yeah. We’re surprised, too.

During last night’s Olympic coverage, NBC announced that Heroes will return as a stand-alone miniseries in 2015. 13 episodes of Heroes Reborn (no, not that Heroes Reborn) are on the docket, with Tim Kring, the original series’ creator, back in command. NBC’s press release is predictably vague on details, though NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke does suggest that some familiar faces may make an appearance.

NBC’s Heroes Will Return In Comic Book Form

Like a cheerleader with regenerative powers, Heroes is making an improbable comeback. The former NBC show will be getting a new comic book series from Dynamite Entertainment and Cullen Bunn. Bunn, famous for The Sixth Gunn and various Deadpool titles, will take the many preexisting characters from the show,which ran from 2006 to 2010, and steer their lives in unexpected directions, according to the press release from Dynamite, released in anticipation of San Diego Comic Con later this week. Apparently a fan of the original series, Bunn talked about where he wants to take the already comic-influenced world of Heroes in the new series.

Charmed and Supernatural Are Among the Top Ten Shows We Foolishly Decide We Can Watch All At Once, If Only We Don’t Sleep

Ahhh, binge watching. I love it and I hate it. Thinking of that time I watched 16 episodes of Community in one day fills me with pride, just as remembering how I spent that whole day slouched on the sofa, smelly and covered in popcorn kernels and spilled salsa, makes me feel the tiniest bit bad about the direction my life has taken.

Even if we feel bad about binge watching, we’ve all done it. And a recent study by The NPD Group has determined which shows we’re binge-watching most frequently.

Jodie Foster Fronting Female-Centered Mob Drama Angie’s Body

Showtime is saying goodbye to two of its female-headed shows soon; Weeds airs the end of its eight season run this September, and The Big C will end with four hour-long episodes next year. The network won’t be completely bereft of shows with women in the lead role, however; Jodie Foster is developing a show that kind of sounds like the female Sopranos

Genre Stars Give Us The Definitive Spoiler Rules [VIDEO]

There’s been extra spoiler arguments lately due to recent happenings on The Walking Dead. Hell, even AMC accidentally spoiled something on their website. We do our best here at The Mary Sue to make sure we don’t spoil anything for you but we all make mistakes sometimes. (When debating a spoiler just yesterday, Jamie asked me if a baby could have been conceived and born since the time the event took place. That’s her rule.) But for those who blatantly spoil entertainment for the rest of us, a few Hollywood actors are here to lay down the law. Nelsan Ellis (Lafayette from True Blood), Andre Royo (Bubbles from The Wire), Julie Benz (Rita from Dexter), Michael Trucco (Anders from Battlestar Galactica), Sarah Wayne Callies (Lori from The Walking Dead), and Masi Oka (Hiro from Heroes) present the spoiler rules. The only missing thing from this video? Alex Kingston’s River Song.

I Swear, John Carter Of Mars Is Really Interesting

This is the first trailer for Disney’s John Carter of Mars, based on Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Barsoom series, which follows the adventures of the titular Marty Stu John Carter, a Civil War veteran who cannot remember his own past and who is transported inexplicably to the planet of Mars where he finds a couple of vastly different, vibrant, warring civilizations.

No! Wait, don’t go away! I know this is a story you’ve heard a beeeeeellion times before but just let me talk about why I’m kind of excited for John Carter of Mars.
