‘Bone’: Netflix Will Animate Jeff Smith’s Acclaimed Comic Book Epic

The story follows the Bone cousins — the intrepid Fone Bone, the scheming Phoney Bone, and the affable Smiley Bone — on their adventures through a vast, uncharted desert that gives way to a mysterious valley filled with wonderful and terrifying creatures. The trio look like they might be made of marshmallow, while their adventures draw on high-pedigree influences: J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings, Jiminy Cricket, Walt Kelly’s Pogo, Charles Schulz’s Peanuts, and Carl Barks’ sublime Disney work with Donald Duck and his relatives. – Geoff Boucher, Deadline Hollywood » https://ift.tt/2pmVQZB [Photo: Bone Comics, Out From Boneville]

Watch the Sandman Fan Film That Earned Neil Gaiman’s Stamp of Approval

It’s “24 Hours,” originally published in 1989, and faithfully translated into live-action (with a few brief animation sequences) by Toronto-based filmmakers Evan Henderson and Nick Brown. It’s called Sandman: 24 Hour Diner, and if its 30-minute runtime gives you pause, know that Gaiman himself told the creators, and the world via Twitter, that he thought it was a job very well done. – Cheryl Eddy, Gizmodo http://gizmo.do/c8HKYWA

A Look Inside Marvel’s ‘Phase 2’ Of Netflix Shows!

Marvel is planning a Phase II that will include Defenders, however this won’t take place until 2017. As of right now, the plan is for two or three Netflix series a year, which means that we won’t get Defenders until 2017. […] The powers that be at Marvel have also been toying with the idea of adding characters like Punisher, Blade and Ghost Rider, but there are risks with each of those characters. Not only are they darker and more violent, but two of them require supernatural elements in order to tell their stories. The inclusion of these characters could send Netflix over to the goofy side, which is something they’re very afraid of Ghost Rider would also rely on CGI too much for the studio’s taste. – Umberto Gonzalez, Heroic Hollywood

In an interview with SciFiNow Magazine, Steven S. DeKnight stated that he hoped the darker nature of Daredevil would be able to convince Marvel executives to give Punisher, one of DeKnight’s favorite characters, his own Netflix series. ” I’ve been a huge fan of the Punisher comics for years. I’d love to see him get his due on a platform like this. Nothing would delight me more than to see the Punisher get his own show and maybe we could convince Marvel to go Hard-R rating. If any character deserves an R rating, it’s the Punisher”. said DeKnight. – Adam Holmes, Cinema Blend
