You’ve waited, and we’ve certainly written enough stories without official photos, but American Gods is finally here! Straight from Comic-Con 2016, the first trailer for Bryan Fuller’s Neil Gaiman adaptation has arrived, plus bonus Pushing Daisies reunion with Kristin Chenoweth!
Welcome to Cast Party, the feature that imagines a world with even more live action comic book adaptations than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you’re ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist. This week we’re looking at one of the most important comics of my teenage years, Neil Gaiman's Sandman.
There's been talk for years and years about adapting Sandman, with Joseph Gordon Levitt long attached to the project, but it's clearly proving a difficult task. As usual, I'm not concerned with what's actually happening. I'm thinking about what I'd like to see.
For all the amazing cast announcements descending from Starz’s American Gods, the Bryan Fuller series has lacked in one major front: photos! Now, feast your eyes on first looks at Shadow Moon, Mr. Wednesday and even Mad Sweeney in godly official photos from the 2017 premiere.
Just when you thought the cast of Bryan Fuller’s American Gods weren’t godlike enough, in comes our first major Hannibal reunion. Gillian Anderson has ascended to American God-hood (again), this time in the role of Media, the mouthpiece for the New Gods of Fullers’ Starz drama.
A few minor filming snags have kept a first look at Starz and Bryan Fuller’s adaptation of American Gods out of our hands a bit longer, but all will be worth the wait, per author Neil Gaiman. Not only is the casting apparently “s--- hot,” but Gaiman gets equally colorful describing some of the fantasy drama’s first footage.
Starz and Bryan Fuller’s American Gods suffered a minor setback with Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation star Sean Harris abdicating the role of Leprechaun “Mad Sweeney,” but now locks down a notable Orange is the New Black star to replace him. Pablo Schreiber has ascended to godhood, joining Starz’ new Neil Gaiman drama in a pivotal role.
Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with 75 years of superhero comics behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite names in comics in our continuing video series. You think you know comics? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!
This week we're taking a look at every college freshman's favorite comics writer, Neil Gaiman.
It’s taken an eon to finally descend from Olympus, but Starz and Bryan Fuller’s take on Neil Gaiman’s American Gods is finally going before cameras. Starz has announced the official start of production with new cast photos, while stars Cloris Leachman, Peter Stormare and more join the roster.
Neil Gaiman has a history of lengthy development to get projects off the ground, like Sandman or American Gods, but perhaps none so long as his first novel Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch. Now, after 26 years, Good Omens will finally get the TV treatment as well, thanks to the late Sir Terry Pratchett.
Starz and Bryan Fuller’s American Gods has been rather meticulous with the casting to date, and now the floodgates may have opened. Not only has Sean Harris joined in the favorite role of Mad Sweeney, but so too has American Gods found its Bilquis and Technical Boy.
