The most important story of the month is the press release from Marvel and Sony that Spider-Man would be joining forces with the likes of Iron Man to fight the forces of evil. That's right, Peter Parker and Tony Stark in the same room at the same time. Should prove interesting. All the details have yet to be ironed out but the suits are already talking 2017 for the first joint film.
On a lighter note Disney has given the go ahead to release its live-action reboot of one of the most familiar fairy-tales in the land. "Cinderella" can be seen on Imax beginning March 15.
American sci-fi fans may miss out on what could be a promising new post-apocalyptic film from Miguel Llanso titled "Crumbs." Keep an eye out for it on alternate viewing methods. This one may be worth the look-see.
"The Walking Dead" actor David Morrissey will be changing locale. No longer the nasty Governor of a zombie infested world he will now turn his attention to the beautiful Halle Berry for the CBS sci-fi thriller "Extant." This time Morrissey will shed the politician's suit for a military uniform and play the general in charge of the global securities agency. The details of his character's personality are a bit fogged at this point but his past history with Berry's character should add to the excitement.
Spider-Man Andrew Garfield will trade in his spider suit for a Pfc. uniform in Mel Gibson's directed film "Hacksaw Ridge," the film based on the real life character named Pfc. Desmond T. Doss. Doss was the first recorded conscientious objector to win the Medal of Honor. Garfield will need all his spidey senses in good working order as this will be the first film since "Apocalypto" the unpredictable Gibson has helmed. For those living under a rock for the last few years Gibson lost most of his Hollywood cred after several drunken outbursts that resulted in him flinging a number of vile anti semitic remarks as police and various other members of the Hollywood elite.
For lovers of "Sleepy Hollow" better get your fix in now because after several dismal rating weeks Fox may on the verge of removing the show. Good news is "Gotham" continues to do well and future Batman and company can be expected to be around a while longer. Also still looking strong are "The Big Bang Theory," "Castle" starring "Firefly" actor Nathan Fillion still a ratings winner, "Marvel's Agents of Shield" is stronger in its second season than its first, "Resurrection" is holding its own in a tough timeslot. The introduction this season of Jim Parrack ("True Blood") as the mysterious Preacher James was a smart casting move on the part of the showrunners. Fans of Ioan Gruffudd ("Fantastic Four") can also look to see more of him as "Forever" has been given the go ahead for more episodes. This ratings climber will likely see a second season. The chemistry between Gruffudd and Judd Hirsch is priceless. As a side - Gruffudd just happens to be shooting a new film also titled "Forever" but it has nothing to do with his television hit.
