The second season of Gotham, Fox’s successful series inspired by DC’s Batman comics is half way over, but fans are glad to hear the May 9th season finale won’t be the end of Detective Jim Gordon’s time in the spotlight.
Ben McKenzie, who leads the cast as Gordon himself, spilled the beans via Twitter earlier this month that the Gotham team will return for a third season.

The Jack Bauer Power Hour is back! Minus the Jack Bauer!
That’s right boys and girls, it looks like Fox is getting back on the 24 bandwagon with the new 24: Legacy series just being ordered to pilot. However, this won’t be the good old 24 that we’ve all grown accustomed to in the last decade and a half. This one will have two new leads and NO recurring original characters. That’s right, it looks like Jack Bauer hasn’t returned from Russia yet.

Are you excited for Deadpool? I know I am, and most people I talk to certainly are excited as well. Here’s the thing though. With the rise of Deadpool came something of a casualty as well that most people aren’t thinking about – The Death of X-Force.
Maybe death is a little premature. After all, we are here to talk about some concept art from the film that finally reveals the team we might have seen on the big screen, but let’s back up.
A cinematic adaptation of X-Force first began gaining some traction when it was revealed that Jeff Wadlow would be writing and directing the X-spinoff for Fox. His script was praised by both Mark Millar – who Wadlow worked with on Kick-Ass 2 – as well as X-Force creator Rob Liefeld. There were rumors about the film and the five-person team we might see, and news was starting to drop in pretty fast.
Then the Deadpool test footage leaked, the Internet exploded, and Fox changed gears a bit. Suddenly Deadpool was finally happening and Ryan Reynolds was happy again. Unfortunately all X-news then focused on either the main trilogy of films (which we can expect to conclude with the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse) or the two new buzz-worthy spinoffs with Deadpool and Gambit.

The X-Files have been closed for more than a decade, but Agents Mulder and Scully will return next month to continue the search for the truth.

With X-Men: Apocalypse almost upon us, and Deadpool close behind, we’ve been following the X-news pretty closely. The only other officially announced film in the Fox series so far has been Gambit, starring Channing Tatum and Lea Seydoux. Gambit is a bit of a surprising gambit (yeah, we went there) and interesting choice for a spin-off film, considering the new canon, following the events of Days of Future Past, which rewrote the timeline and pretty much erased Taylor Kitsch’s turn as the character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. So we can certainly get behind bringing the fan favorite character to the big screen.
With that being said, in our eyes there are a number of characters and teams who deserve their shot on the big screen a little bit more than Remy LeBeau. While we have nothing against Gambit, there are already a number of properties that have been partially set up in the X-Men’s Cinematic Universe, including a number of characters we just want to see more of. Today we are going to take a look at a number of these potential spin-offs that we would love to see, starting with someone we hope to see in another rumored spin-off.

That’s right, X-Fans, Fox has confirmed rumors that a live action X-Men TV Show is moving forward, though they haven’t solidified a deal just yet. Fox Network co-chairman Dana Walden revealed during last week’s Television Critics Association Press Tour, the network is actively pursuing a TV series based on Marvel’s team of mutant superheroes.

On paper, Lucifer follows the same rules as most police shows. Introduce the protagonist bad boy, give him an opposites attract partnership, add a bit sexual tension and let him use his “evil” ways for good. We’ve seen this show before and it has failed to captivate many new fans. However, there’s bit more charm this time around, and that’s thanks to its lead actors, especially Tom Ellis in the title role. Ellis takes the show, and the fans he’s about to earn, and runs with it.

Fox has actually done an awesome job getting the X-Men movie franchise back on track. The respectability garnered from fans thanks to the first two films may have been tainted by The Last Stand, but First Class and Days of Future Past have done a great job of restoring Marvel’s mutant back to their prominent state.
It now looks like Fox is ready to bring the X-Men to the small screen. The Hollywood Reporter first got wind of this news, as they reported that preliminary discussions have already begun regarding the show’s development. This live-action TV series seemingly has some credible names already looking to bring this show to life – 24 producers Evan Katz and Manny Coto are said to be in talks, along with the current Star Trek 3 writing duo of J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay. Katz and Coto are said to be the main frontrunners for the show’s development, but Payne and McKay will receive creation credits for their work with the show.
Marvel’s suite of superheroes are currently dominating movie theaters and TV, thanks to shows such as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter and the upcoming Netflix show Daredevil. Simon Kinberg previously offered up some comments on the odds of an X-Men TV show coming to fruition:
We’re still in this place of figuring out what the future of the franchise will be, but when you look at S.H.I.E.L.D. to some extent and what Marvel is doing now with Daredevil and other shows on Netflix, it makes sense to tell some of these stories in TV partly because there’s just not enough screens to do all these characters, and also because the serialized format of comic books is better suited for TV. Because that’s it, every week you come back to the same characters different story, and in comic books every week it’s the same characters, different story. I think what [Fox is] seeing now is with the proliferation of new kinds of visual and special effects, there’s a way to make these stories that doesn’t cost $300 million every time you have to make a huge movie.
We’re interested in seeing the X-Men hit the small screen again. If it’s half as good as the previous animated interpretations of Professor X and his world saving crew, then we have high hopes for this show. We’re slightly worried about the negotiations that will undoubtedly go down between Fox, ABC and Marvel. But we think cooler heads will prevail and this live-action X-Men show will soon become a reality.
