Jonny Quest

Jonny Quest movie in early development stages

Yes, Jonny Quest. I said it, because this franchise is stepping out of the TV cartoon landscape and getting the live-action treatment.

Robert Rodriguez, the man heralding this plan, says it won't be like Spy Kids, in as that franchise was aimed at the younger audience, but will in fact, be pointed at the older skewing audience.

(Rodriguez calls Spy Kids "James Bond-meets-Roald Dahl, with surreal Willy Wonka-esque characters." Which actually had me thinking that's what Tim Burton did to all his Batman movie bad guys!!! But it is OK what he says about Spy Kids... that was his project too.)

Agents of SHIELD

Agents of SHIELD casting news

If you liked it when Blair Underwood showed up on Agents of SHIELD, as, of all things, May's ex, well guess what!? No, really, guess?

OK, fine, here it is: Blair Underwood will be returning to Agents of SHIELD as May's ex-husband.

I liked what he represented and what his character pulled off in the last season, so I look forward to what he'll be involved in, in upcoming episodes.

Agents of SHIELD returns on Sept. 29th.

The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead season six promo art

For any comic fans of The Walking Dead who are watching the show, you know should know that Ethan Embry and Merritt Wever have joined the show.

And these two will be bringing in some comic-adopted roles to the show.

Wever will be playing Alexandria resident Dr. Denise Cloyd, and you will have to pay special attention to Embry's character, who will be a "composite of several characters" from the comic title.

Also look for season six to fill in some backstory that the comics never did.

Check out the SDCC Trailer for Season Six of The Walking Dead:
