Now, Syfy is officially upping the ante with writer David Goyer to create a 'Krypton' TV series, exploring the origin's origin's origin of Superman's grandpappy!

KGBeast To Appear In ‘Batman V Superman,’ Maybe Be The Best Thing In It

Ten Nights of the Beast, DC Comics

I've already checked out of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice 18 months in advance, so every announcement about the upcoming Zack Snyder film and its attendant roster of spinoffs and franchises has been idle curiosity. Until, that is, it was announced that the KGBeast would be making an appearance.

As longtime CA readers may recall, the Beast is one of my all-time favorite villains. Originally created by the team of Jim Starlin and Jim Aparo in a four-part story called "Ten Nights of the Beast" that ran in Batman #417 - 420, the KGBeast was an assassin for hire who battled Batman in one of the most over-the-top stories of all time. And while I can hardly believe I'm saying this, he's kind of the perfect villain for David S. Goyer and Zack Snyder's version of the cinematic DC Universe.

The producers of NBC's new series Constantine were very chatty at the Television Critics Association meeting this weekend about the series, on topics ranging from lead actress Lucy Griffith's departure from the series to whether the show will explore the magical corners of the DC Universe.

Blastr reported that Executive Producer David S. Goyer says that there's the distinct possibility that lots of DC's occult characters will show up on the show, while Variety quoted him as saying the show won't explore Constantine's bisexuality any time soon.

Um, Actually: ‘Man Of Steel’ Writer David Goyer’s Remarks On ‘Green Porn Star’ She-Hulk And Other Nasty Business

Untitled-1

This week, David S. Goyer, writer of Man of Steel and its upcoming sequel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, appeared on a writers podcast called Scriptnotes to talk about being a screenwriter for superhero films. Apparently he thought it would be a good idea to do this by characterizing She-Hulk as "a giant green porn star that only the Hulk could f*ck" before getting into an extended discussion about how the Martian Manhunter sucks so bad that he can only really work in a story where he also has sex with She-Hulk.

Who would've ever thought that the guy who wrote a superhero movie with the line "you c*ck-juggling thunderc*nt" would have some problematic ideas about female characters?

Also joining the cast are Lost's Harold Perrineau, who will play an angel named Manny tasked with overseeing Constantine's actions, and True Blood's Lucy Griffiths, who will portray the female lead, Liv (just like The CW's Vertigo Comic adaptation iZombie will star a woman in supernatural turmoil - get it?
