Deadman by Bruce Timm

The CW has the record for longest-running superhero TV show in Smallville, but now that Superman’s formative years are up, they want to bring another DC Comics property to television. This time, it’s Deadman, the body-jumping ghost hero. And who better to bring him to life on TV than former Supernatural showrunner Eric Kripke? Nobody, that’s who, and CW execs agree. Details are scarce, but the series is definitely being developed, and may indeed be only one of several DC properties the CW is pursuing for an adaptation. Read more…

Sam & Dean To Keep On Kicking

Don’t worry, you can breathe a sigh of relief. According to IGN, the CW has announced plans to renew Supernatural for a seventh season. While I haven’t followed its ratings since series creator Eric Kripke handed the reins to Sera Gamble, it’s nice to know the network has confidence in her performance so far. From what I’ve seen of the sixth season, it’s not terrible, but I can’t honestly call it their best to date.  While the episodes have been entertaining, the story arcs have seemed a bit rushed. Then again, Kripke had planned the series three seasons in advance while eventually stretching those plans to fit five. Given the age of the series, I’m not sure Gamble has that liberty. Still, season seven — that’s something.

No Rest For The Wicked; Supernatural the Animation Official Trailer

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Nov 30, 2010 in Animation, Horror

Last week I posted some of the character sheets from the upcoming Supernatural anime. While I liked the designs, I wasn’t quite sure how well they’d translate to the animation. Thankfully, there’s a short trailer that’ll illustrate it for us. Again, the series will be covering the first two seasons of its American live-action counterpart, and follows the story of two brothers bent on revenge against the demon responsible for their mother’s death. While the trailer has me a little worried — the animation certainly isn’t the best I’ve seen — they seem to have hit everything else about the show on the mark. Needless to say, I’m still excited and I’m looking forward to seeing what Madhouse and Warner Brothers have in store for us when the series hits shelves next year.

The Supernatural Anime is Looking Scary Cool

Supernatural The Animation

It’s been months since this was officially announced, but I recently stumbled across what appears to be some of the original character sketches from the upcoming anime based on the hit show Supernatural. Like the series, the anime will feature the story of the Winchester brothers and will consist of twenty four episodes which will feature the same story arcs from the first two seasons — namely their quest to find their father and avenge the death of their late mother. The first twelve episodes will go on sale in Japan in early January, and while there’s been no word on if Supernatural: The Animation will be licensed for distribution stateside, I imagine it won’t be long before someone does — if not Warner Brothers themselves.
