Nancy Drew

Young Nancy Drew makes plans to leave her hometown for college after high school graduation but finds herself drawn into a supernatural murder mystery.

The CW is adding Nancy Drew to its lineup for late September/early October 2019. Kennedy McMann stars as Nancy Drew, with Scott Wolf, will play the role of Nancy’s father, Carson Drew, replacing the previously-cast Freddie Prinze Jr.

 

 

There are more than 175 books plus a few years of Nancy Drew Mysteries to play around with, lots of material there, we will be keeping an eye on this one. Fans are describing the TV series as a cross between The Conjuring and Riverdale. Nancy Drew is a welcome addition to the DC franchise that The CW has been building.

 

 

Batwoman

Kate Kane seeks justice for Gotham city as Batwoman.

Looking forward to the new series of Batwoman, The CW is adding this one nicely to the DC world. Due out about the same time as Nancy Drew, Batwoman comes on the heels of Batman’s 80th Anniversary. Well timed.

Starring Ruby Rose as Batwoman and Dougray Scott plays her father, Colonel Jacob Kane. There are some excellent shots showing the bat signal, which is encouraging. It means they have looked at the older style bat series from the 50s and 60s, including bats in the bat cave. With this renewed contemporary version, it is also refreshing to note that their are no weird stockings or satin type external underwear.

 

 

I noticed, after watching on YouTube that the fans had picked up on some of the changes. Of course, the cape in the teaser is just for effect, and it looks incredible.

For fans into the Batman 80th Anniversary, comics and the DC Universe, YouTuber Zaranyzerak is covering all things geeky for fans on his channel plus live streaming on Twitch.

 

 

IT Chapter 2

Twenty-seven years after their first encounter with the terrifying Pennywise, the Losers Club have grown up and moved away, until a devastating phone call brings them back.

As things have heated up between Warner Bros and Disney, it seems by default (or design) that Warner Bros has become the scary studio. The original book was penned by Stephen King with the film directed by Andy Muschietti, IT Chapter 2 looks promising as the next part of the story.

Due out early September, the film will lead into the Halloween season.
