Game Informer has the scoop.

“Hot off the heels of the successful Castlevania animated series, Netflix might be looking to add another video game adaptation to its library in the form of Blizzard’s Diablo.

Andrew Cosby, founder of comics publisher Boom! Studios, tweeted on Wednesday that he’s in talks to write the series in collaboration with Netflix and Activision-Blizzard. While the tweet has since been deleted, likely because it was publicly referring to a project that has not been announced, Variety managed to catch and report on it.

Judging by Cosby’s pedigree as the writer of the new Hellboy reboot and Netflix’s penchant for more adult animation, Castlevania included, a Diablo series would likely veer toward the more mature end of the animation spectrum in terms of subject matter and violence. Seeing as how it’s only in talks right now, however, it might be some time before we see anything from it. “

I couldn’t be all more in, really, give me more!

What was Metropolis like before Superman moved to town? That’s a question that will be answered in the latest original series announced for DC Entertainment’s upcoming streaming service.

Metropolis comes from John Stephens and Danny Cannon–the producers of Gotham, which is set in a pre-Batman Gotham City–and will consist of a 13-episode first season. A synopsis from DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. TV reads, “Set in the wondrous and awe-inspiring City of Tomorrow before the arrival of Superman, Metropolis follows Lois Lane and Lex Luthor as they investigate the world of fringe science and expose the city’s dark and bizarre secrets.”
No Caption Provided

While on the surface, Metropolis sounds a lot like Gotham, there is a major difference. While Batman has yet to arrive in Gotham City on the Fox series, a young Bruce Wayne is one of the main characters. With Metropolis focussing on Lex Luthor and Lois Lane, there will likely be no Clark Kent. Of course, it’s notable that Lois is teaming with someone who will go on to become one of the biggest villains in the DC universe.

Metropolis will go into production later in the year to make a debut in 2019 on DC’s streaming service. It joins other announced series like the live-action Titans, and animated Young Justice: Outsiders and Harley Quinn series. A date for the new platform’s release has not been announced.

6 Reasons Why We Adore Arrested Development

Why do we love Arrested Development so much? Because, although it’s smart, savvy, and beautifully presented, it’s a standard three-camera sitcom at heart. And because it copies one of the major television innovations of the 21st century, reality TV. The show is shot with a single hand-held camera, with a documentary-style voiceover (which is often funnier than the characters themselves). Every scene could be executed in the classic three-camera style, complete with live studio audience and laugh track.
