Micro-News: FUTURAMA Cancelled, Electric Boogaloo IRON MAN 3 Armor And More

By Mark Julian - 4/22/2013






Futurama has been cancelled again according to THR. The show will air 13 more episodes for its seventh season after starting out on Fox and continuing on Comedy Central - then take a bow on Sept. 4th. "We’ve been in this situation before and it’s tempting when you’re doing episodes that are as good or better than anything you’ve ever done to continue doing it," said creator Matt Groening.




This is going to become a 'thing' over the next 2 weeks, hopefully they're all as entertaining as the first revelation. No pressure Drew...







Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. supposedly wrapped filming on its pilot back in February but Clark Gregg has seemingly revealed that he shot something for the show fairly recently in an interview with Moviefone.

"The Marvel guys were sweet -- they’re nerds, so they are also part of Coulson’s army -- and they said, “C’mon, maybe he’s not that dead.” You know, I got this call -- much sooner than I imagined it would come, if it ever came -- and they said, “We want you to come to New York Comic Con. We have some news.” And when I saw this video where Joss and [Marvel Studios president] Kevin Feige came out, and Kevin was wearing a “Coulson Lives” t-shirt, It was really moving to me, because I felt the fans had brought Coulson back to life. Two days ago, I was shooting my last couple pick-up scenes in a show called “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."


Joss Whedon went to college with who...


The “Avengers” director Joss Whedon, who was a classmate of Mr. Bay’s at Wesleyan University in the 1980s, remembered him as being “very sweet” and for making a student film in which Mr. Bay’s car, a yellow Porsche, featured prominently. “It was way better than mine,” Mr. Whedon said of the film. “I don’t mind making fun of his because I burned the negative of mine.”

Hope Futurama doesn't get cancelled but does seem like it's had its run

Funny thing about Futurama is that I treat the show like it's always been in reruns, even though it came back to life on Comedy Central.

I enjoy the show -- it's a geek lovefest and really smart -- but it's not exactly appointment TV.

Should we be worried about Levi?

:( I think so

FUTURAMA needs to be cancelled since season 1
SkywayTraffic - 4/22/2013, 11:36 AM
@levitikuz... I... I think... You should take a deep breath and lie down...
GenerationX - 4/22/2013, 11:46 AM
don't give two shits about Futurama....I never knew they brought the show back.
MrMartinMarvel - 4/22/2013, 11:46 AM
I'll hug you Levi.
NovaCorpsFan - 4/22/2013, 11:47 AM
Levi I can't help but think you're a pessimist
UltimaRex - 4/22/2013, 11:59 AM
Like we haven't been here before.

Futurama season 8 will be on kickstarter within a year.

Mark my words.

futurama sucks! it should of been cancelled a long time ago.

the simpsons should be cancelled as well,that's just getting worse with each new season.
CaptainObvious - 4/22/2013, 12:06 PM
I love Futurama. It's a shame it's being cancelled. On the bright side, at least it was on the air for seven seasons. Most shows don't make it that far.

Wow whats with all the Futurama hate?

Really upset they're cancelling it... again.
LMB10 - 4/22/2013, 12:43 PM
Talk about overreacting.
poop23 - 4/22/2013, 12:56 PM
Futurama is only like on half the memes of the entire internet, but apparently theres not enough demand for the show... I don't want to live on this planet any more
HeadPool420 - 4/22/2013, 1:27 PM
@Levi come hit this blunt, take a deep breath and relax. It may take a while but things will look up some day.
jessepostal - 4/22/2013, 1:37 PM
I thought futurama was cancelled years ago.

And twinkies are on their way back to the shelf, i just read an article about its new home.
ElDarkside - 4/22/2013, 1:44 PM
Levi - thats a lot of sad shit. Most of which I actually agree with, but seriously.... Bong rips. 4:20 is over but I gots if u need to calm down.

I recommend "parks and rec" and "community" now that the office is over after this season. Those shows are basically live action comic comedies, especially "community". Childish Gambino anyone?

And whoever said family guy is not good anymore needs to check their head...
exirae - 4/22/2013, 1:56 PM
The more I think about SHIELD, the more I like it. I might be a good chance for them to introduce more grounded characters into the MCU (Punisher/Daredevil).
ShadowTheIronKnight - 4/22/2013, 1:58 PM
I'm siding with levi on this one Hollywood is losing creativity someone needs to bring originality back into Hollywood
mkilban2 - 4/22/2013, 2:11 PM
It's okay Levitkuz, there's more to life than TV and Movies.
SnapperCarr - 4/22/2013, 2:49 PM
Levi, I totally agree that Martian Manhunter should be an original member.
TheSuperguy - 4/22/2013, 5:07 PM
@Levi

If you need some cheering up, just remember that MOS is now less than two months away. I feel for you buddy. *sniff* I miss Spectatcular Spider-Man.

how a genuinely intelligent show like this gets cancelled and Brad Garrett keeps getting sitcoms is something that will baffle me endlessly
mgeoff88 - 4/22/2013, 6:17 PM
That really sucks Futurama is being cancelled again.
hehemata - 4/22/2013, 7:46 PM
how does such a brilliant show get cancelled while family guy keeps staying on?
soberchimera - 4/22/2013, 8:28 PM
@ElDarkside
Slowly makin progress across the nation, but they're still arrests, so much work to be done.

"Marvel won't make a Hulk movie...."

Yet.

"...and Daredevil movie because Fox have the rights to Kingpin to Sony."

Actually, Sony had the rights and loaned them to Fox. Given all the deals Marvel and Sony have made of late, I suspect Kingpin won't remain locked up for too long at all.

"We won't get Hellboy 3 or Dredd 2."

We don't know for certain about Hellboy 3. As for Dredd 2... yeah. Sadly, nobody showed up to see it here in the U.S., which isn't surprising. The best we can do now is the Dredd 2 comic.

"No news on a Flash movie."

Other than WB put the team that developed the Green Lantern script on writing The Flash, no. And I should say the team before Martin Campbell came on as director and Michael Goldenberg was brought in to rewrite it (effectively taking it away from Berlanti, Guggenheim and Green before they could deliver a final draft).

"John Stewart is going to be killed off."

Actually, he's not. While I don't believe the DC party line that there were never any plans to do it, once word broke, DC quickly did an about face on that. Apparently the notion that DC were going to kill off one of their premier black characters was somewhat upsetting given how few of them there actually are. Go figure.
