Random News: Comic Books on TV, Hunger Games and Blood

Hello Lovely Readers,

Usually I try to have a theme to the news articles I share on a single day, but today it just wasn’t happening. I wanted to share my finds, but none of them really go together, so just roll with it!

The first news, is that ABC has commissioned the series Agent Carter which will follow Peggy Carter from Captain America: The First Avenger. The actress who player her n the movie is set to star, and it will fill the time gap when SHIELD is on break. You can read more about it here. Also there is a 15 minute short that shows what we might expect with the series. If the series is similar to the short, I am all in!

Next up, is that the trailer for Constantine, the upcoming NBC show based on the comics, has been released. You can read more background information here. You can watch the trailer below. I have to say I am liking what I am seeing. It is much closer to the character I have seen in the comics (the few times he has popped up in the series I was reading). It will be very different from the Keanu Reeves movie, but I think that will be ok.

Third find of the day, is that Hunger Games: Mockingjay is already filming. It makes sense when I stop to think about it, but it just seems so soon after the last movie. You can see some of the pictures on the Buzzfeed article here.
The last news is from the Globe Theater in London. Apparently, the current staging of Titus Andronicus is bloody enough that several people have already fainted while watching it. Right now I have not decided if I want to see the play or not, as I have just seen it performed recently at the RSC (my review here), and it is not a very nice play. However, with the threat of fainting, I am very tempted! You can read more about the staging and the patrons’ reactions here.

Until next time,


About Lynne

I am currently a PhD student of Forensic Psychology, which may explain the off mix of extremely morbid books sitting next to children’s books. Hailing from the Midwest in the United States of America, I have now lived in England for over 2 years (which will explain any strange grammar usage). From a very young age, my parents cultivated a love of reading, and never restricted what I read. When I reached middle school I began reading Shakespeare (a lifelong love affair), but had also discovered the wonders of young adult fiction. While the world may now expect me to read books more reflective of my age, I have fought this and am a strong supporter of the YA novel! Despite having very little free time, I still sets aside time for a reading every evening, and listens to books on my way to University. I dream of one day being a published novelist and published scientist!
