Brainic Will Be The Big Villain In SyFy’s Krypton

Published

on

We haven’t seen much from Syfy’s upcoming Superman-ish series Krypton just yet, but a new behind-the-scenes video gives us the first great look at Blake Ritson (RocknRolla) as the DC Comics character, Brainiac. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because the sometimes-villain / sometimes-hero briefly appeared on The CW’s Supergirl and the results were … not great. And that’s not a knock on the fantastic Jesse Rath, but rather a nod towards just how good Syfy’s version of Brainiac looks.

The introduction to Brainiac, ahead of the show’s arrival on Syfy March 21st at 10pm, comes courtesy of USA Today. Executive Producer David S. Goyer, star Cameron Cuffe, and DC Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer and President Geoff Johns weighed in on Krypton‘s take on Brainiac in a new video, along with some background info from the comics and concept art that went into his creation.

“I’ve played characters who’ve objectively committed monstrous actions, but feel entirely justified, as they’ve acted from a misplaced sense of a noble cause. Generally speaking, people cast themselves as the hero in their own narrative.”

While Ritson is well aware of a villain’s view of himself as the hero, it’s hard to defend Brainiac’s actions, but he tries:

“Yes, he traverses the universe in a gigantic skull ship, ripping cities out of planets, miniaturizing them and placing them on board. But he does so in the spirit of conservation. In his mind, he’s committed to the ultimate philanthropic act: saving all of creation. In many ways it’s analogous to Noah plucking out two of every animal to ensure their survival, even while knowing that others must perish.”

Ryan Coogler Is Hard At Work Writing The Sequel For Black Panther

Published

Marvel head Kevin Feige said Black Panther 2 will happen whenever director Ryan Coogler is ready. It seems that critically acclaimed director is ready to return to his billion dollar franchise.

According to a report by Metro, Coogler is already in the process of drafting script for the sequel.

“Ryan Coogler is currently mapping out Black Panther’s sequel and has written in a number of new characters that movie-goers will be introduced to when it premieres,” said the source, according to Metro. “One of those characters, if he gets his wish, will be played by Childish Gambino. Nothing is set in stone but ‘informal talks’ [are happening] between Ryan, Gambino and reps from Marvel and Disney to see if they can make it happen.”

He’s also reportedly in talks with his longtime collaborator, Michael B. Jordan, to return for the sequel as well.

“They’re still yet to decide if Michael B. Jordan will return in some capacity but if he doesn’t it’s likely Gambino may play some kind of villain,” said the source.

But it would be hard for Marvel to justify the return of Michael B. Jordan as Killmonger, after the events of part one.

Jason Momoa’s Aquaman was just along for the ride in Justice League. In the characters first stand-alone movie, fans will get more of the new badass version of Aquaman. So forget the memes and the jokes from the 60’s super friends cartoons.

Director James Wan’s (Furious 7Aquaman is setting a new tone. Wan broke down his vision for the King of Atlantis.

“It’s going to look very different, it will feel very different, aesthetically, tonally, story-wise, it’s my own take. It’s a much more a traditional action-adventure quest movie…Aquaman has been the joke of the comic book world, but the more I thought about it, the more I thought how cool that would be. Let’s take the character everybody makes fun of and do something really interesting with him.”

Aquaman hits theaters on December 21st

I want to get Ryan in there so we’re making sure we’re all on the same page of like the comedy we want to do and the narrative.
