Terminator Genisys

Arnold Schwarzenegger just announced completion of filming of the fifth entry in the Terminator franchise: Terminator: Genisys.

All we for know for certain is filming wrapped, Arnold is in it, and it’s to be the beginning of a new trilogy of Terminator films.  Emilia Clark (Game of Thrones) will play  Sarah Connor, Jai Courtenay (Jack Reacher) is Kyle Reese, and Jason Clarke (Farscape) is John Connor.  Matt Smith (Doctor Who), Byung-hun Lee (G.I. Joe: Retaliation, RED 2), and J.K. Simmons (The Closer) are also expected to be in the film.

Arnold has the distinction of playing a character that made both the American Film Institute’s top 100 heroes list (Terminator 2) and top 100 villains list (Terminator). 

Per Arnold’s Twitter:

Hasta la vista, baby. I want to thank the cast and crew of @TerminatorGenisys for a fantastic shoot. It was challenging, it was fun, and it was rewarding. From our director to the producers, from the camera team to catering, from visual effects to hair and makeup – we couldn’t have done it without you. I can’t wait to see our finished project and I know we’ll remind the fans why they fell in love with the Terminator. On July 1, 2015, I’ll be back.

July 1, 2015–That’s not too long of a wait.

Dynamite Comics has several new books on the shelves today, and we have previews for two that you may want to check out, one new series, following the Jack Kirby superhero Captain Victory and one from an ongoing monthly, Flash Gordon.

It’s always interesting to see how new writers and artists will reinterpret Alex Raymond’s 1930s sci-fi/fantasy hero Flash Gordon.  Flash Gordon, now in Issue #4, features a new story by Jeff Parker with art by Evan “Doc” Shaner and colors by Jordie Bellaire.  There’s almost something Jonny Quest or Mark Trail about Shaner’s style here.

Kirby’s Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers gets a new monthly today.  Originally from a concept from the 1980s published by Pacific Comics, writer Joe Casey and artists Nathan Fox, Jim Rugg, and Ulises Farinas bring Victory back for a new audience.  The art and design for Issue #1 is very, very cool.
