Henry Cavill to play Geralt in Netflix Witcher series

It’s official! Henry Cavill has been cast in the lead role as Geralt of Rivia in the up coming Witcher Netflix series. So personally I thought it was crazy when Superman himself Henry Cavill said that he wanted to play Geralt last month. Honestly I wasn’t sure if that would be a good fit for him but it doesn’t matter what I think because the producers of the series seem to think it’s a great idea. As far as his look goes he just seems a bit too bulky to play Geralt. Sure Geralt is pretty cut in the games but he’s a bit more slim than Henry Cavill. Of course he could always lose a bit of his mass but still, there is just something about his face that doesn’t seem to quite match up. 

Reboot: The Guardian Code Official Trailer

So the reboot of the 1990’s CGI animated series appropriately named “Reboot” is coming to Netflix, and they just dropped the first official trailer for it. The new series is titled Reboot: The Guardian Code and my first impressions of it aren’t very positive. The original series was a ground breaking attempt at bringing an all computer animated TV show to the small screen.  Back in the mid 90s it was revolutionary for it’s time, unfortunately the original series just didn’t age well at all. The new series attempts to bring Reboot into the modern era with updated animation that is still reminiscent of the old show, but this time adding in an element of live action to it. I use to love the old show as a kid but I’m afraid this new one just doesn’t look very good to me. 

NEW Animated Netflix Series from the creator of Futurama

Good News Everyone! Apparently Netflix has ordered an adult animated comedy from the creator of The Simpsons and Futurama, Matt Groening. The show will be a medieval, fantasy series titled Disenchantment. “Disenchantment will take place in the crumbling medieval kingdom of Dreamland, which is populated by hard-drinking princess Bean, her elf companion Elfo and her personal demon Luci.” In all honesty this sort of reminds me of Adventure Time with some more adult undertones. Now I’m not saying that it’s a bad thing, in fact I think it actually sounds pretty entertaining. I hope that Disenchantment will be to animated, fantasy comedy that Futurama has been to animated sci-fi comedy. 

Netflix Castlevania Teaser Trailer

In darkness, a hero returns in this first official teaser trailer for the new Netflix anime series Castlevania. This teaser trailer looks dark, and bloody, and I can’t wait to watch the actual series. Castlevania was a classic game for the Nintendo Entertainment System and though there have been several sequels spanning across several game systems, the original will always be one of the most iconic games of all time. This trailer definitely has a great call back to the original NES days in it. 

Netflix Playable Stranger Things 8-Bit Mini Game

So it looks like Netflix is getting into the gaming industry, as if taking over as the king of streaming video content wasn’t already good enough. Actually it’s not really that serious and I doubt they will be making any triple A gaming titles in the near future. However, they did just release an official 8-bit mini game based on their hit series Stranger Things. It’s online right now and free to play so if you are a fan of the series or even just a fan of the 80s and 90s in general, then this might be worth checking out.

Voltron Season 2 Second Trailer (Video)

The second trailer for the Netflix Animated Series Voltron dropped today and personally I can’t wait to start watching season 2. If you haven’t already watched season 1 I highly recommend that you go watch it before you start watching season 2. The whole series is really well done with great characters, great animation, and an engaging story line. Season 2 looks to be packed with action and might contain a few new surprises for the paladins. I have a feeling that this season is going to be better than the first.

A Stranger Things Christmas (Video)

For those of you that have watched the hit Netflix original series Stranger Things then you know that we were left with a lot of unanswered questions. If you haven’t watched it yet I highly suggest that you do then come back and check out this awesome video. A Stranger Things Christmas is done in the art style of Charlie Brown and the Peanuts characters and does contain spoilers so you have been warned. Other than that if you loved the show then you will definitely love this video…

Marvel Runaways Series Coming To Hulu

Marvel Television announced today that they will be creating a TV series based on the cult comic series Runaways. The series will air exclusively on Hulu’s streaming service. I will admit that I personally have never read any of this series but it’s obviously popular enough to warrant the creation of a TV series. So far only a pilot has been ordered with the hope for an entire season to get green lit. Marvel Television has done an amazing job with their series over on Netflix and seem to have big plans for Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. by bringing Ghost Rider to the show.
