Elisabeth Moss To Star In Neo-Noir Anthology Series Black Match For Hulu

In the wake of the success of The Invisible Man, Elisabeth Moss has started crafting several new and interesting genre projects, including what sounds like a nifty little piece of anthology television that could see one of the best actresses working today taking on Femme Fatales and a neo-noir Los Angeles.

It’s being reported that Moss is developing an anthology titled Black Match for Hulu, in which she will star. The series is described as a psychosexual neo-noir thriller set in modern-day Los Angeles and comes from an original script written by Ian McCulloch. Mike Barker is attached to direct the pilot, who previously directed Moss in twelve episodes of The Handmaid’s Tale, and has shows like Fargo and Outlander on his resume.

Return of the Super Assholes: Umbrella Academy and The Boys Drop New Trailers

The clihéd stereotypes about superheroes on screen, which were mostly established by the 1960’s Batman series and the Superman movies of the 1970s and 80s, are still often lampooned, but seldom actually used. The 2019 Warner Bros. film Shazam! was pretty wholesome, and both Spider-Man and Captain America have certainly had their moments, but for the most part, the genre has moved away from its roots. From the wisecracking Tony Stark to the brooding Dark Knight to the Netflix Defenders, we’ve gone decidedly darker and more layered than the stereotype should allow.  This was a natural progression, and then in 2016, they gave Deadpool his own movie, and suddenly, the whole genre seemed to shift a bit.

I’ll Be Gone In The Dark: HBO’s First Trailer For The Golden State Killer Docuseries

HBO has released a trailer for its upcoming docuseries which draws from the late Michelle McNamara’s book of the same name that investigates the Golden State Killer case.

Is The Mandalorian Making A Mistake With Season 2?

We’ve seen all too often movie sequels take missteps after great starts. Be it too many villains – the ’90s Batman sequels, Spider-Man 3, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, etc. – or too much reliance on bringing back past characters, which has been a big knock on much of the Disney-Era Star Wars Universe. Too much reliance on the Skywalkers makes a vast galaxy seem small.

Netflix’s Hollywood: First Trailer For Ryan Murphy’s Rewrite Of Tinseltown

The limited-series presents an alternative version of history wherein actors and writers of color are more openly part of the Hollywood studio system.

As described in the official plot synopsis, Hollywood “exposes and examines decades-old power dynamics, and what the entertainment landscape might look like if they had been dismantled.” From prostitution and sexual harassment to racism to homophobia and the fascination with homosexuality, these burgeoning young stars are faced with the challenges of an unfair system, with biases against racism, gender, and sexuality that still feel prominent to this day.
