Nickolodeon Offers: “Rise of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” NEW Series Official Teaser

As you tenured readers know, PiercingMetal recently attended the American International Toy Fair over at the Javits Center and one of the appointments that we had was with Playmates Toys. They are the folks behind the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toy line which is a show that airs on the Nickolodeon network. During the convention we got to see some brand new variations on the characters and that brings me to this post as Nickolodeon has just unveiled a teaser trailer for the upcoming series “Rise Of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”. Let’s take a look at the trailer and then you can review the press release about the show. Have fun or should I say “COWABUNGA!!!!”

The Press Release:
Nickelodeon today released the first trailer for its all-new animated series, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which follows the band of brothers as they discover new powers and encounter a mystical world they never knew existed beneath the streets of New York City. The 2D-animated series, which blends action and comedy and features a dynamic fresh look, debuts later this year on Nickelodeon.

The series stars the voice talent of Omar Miller (Ballers) as Raphael, Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) as Leonardo, Josh Brener (Silicon Valley) as Donatello, Brandon Mychal Smith (You’re The Worst) as Michelangelo, Kat Graham (The Vampire Diaries) as April O’Neil and Eric Bauza (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) as Splinter. WWE Superstar John Cena lends his voice as villain, Baron Draxum, an alchemist warrior mutant who seeks to turn all of humanity into mutants.

Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reimagines the iconic series and breathes new life into the classic characters, with jagged-shelled Raphael as a snapping turtle, wielding twin tonfas as his weapons; Leonardo as a red-eared slider, using an ōdachi sword; Donatello as a soft-shell turtle, sporting a tech-bo staff; and Michelangelo as a box turtle, arming himself with a kusari-fundo. Along for the adventure is the Turtles’ most trusted ally, April O’Neil, a street savvy native New Yorker, and Splinter, father figure and sensei to the Turtles.

Nextflix Presents: “Lost In Space” Official Trailer (2018)

It’s pretty amazing to realize that nowadays it seems as though everything is being rebooted, repurposed, relaunched or given a prequel chapter. If you are shaking your head about this statement then let’s consider the news that the time-honored Science Fiction series “Lost In Space” has been relaunched as a brand-new Netflix Original Series. The trailer surfaced yesterday and I’ve snagged it for you below. Take a look.

The Premise:
In the year 2046, the Robinson family and the spaceship Jupiter 2, one of several Jupiter ships, encounters a rip in spacetime and crashes on an unknown planet. Stranded light years from their intended destination, the Robinsons and other colonists marooned with them battle a strange new alien environment and their own personal demons as they attempt to leave the planet.

SyFy Presents: “Krypton” Official Trailer #2

Hello again readers and fans of shows that feature our colorful comic book characters. I’m back to showcase the second official trailer for the upcoming SyFy series “Krypton” and it looks promising. Take a look down below.

The Premise: According to IGN, Krypton will follow Superman’s grandfather, Seg-El; whose family, the House of El, has been ostracized and shamed. Seg-El fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos.

The Cast/Characters:
Cameron Cuffe as Seg-El
Georgina Campbell as Lyta Zod
Ian McElhinney as Val-El
Elliot Cowan as Daron-Vex
Ann Ogbomo as Alura Zod
Rasmus Hardiker as Kem
Wallis Day as Nyssa-Vex
Aaron Pierre as Dev-Em
Shaun Sipos as Adam Strange
Blake Ritson as Brainiac
Paula Malcomson as Charys
Additionally, Seg’s father Ter-El, Doomsday and Hawkgirl will also appear in the television series.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve already said what I’ve needed to about this upcoming show but that being said I will tell you that I am sold on giving it a chance. It will be interesting to see Adam Strange in action and of course Brainiac who in all honesty should have had an inference in last years ill-received “Justice League” film. There wasn’t one of course and heck, we didn’t even get a glimpse of Darkseid but enough about that. Sorry if I spoiled it for you but if you haven’t seen the film by now you are not on the same level of geek as most of us are. The “Krypton” show airs on 3/21 so while it might be too early to set your DVR as that’s still a month away, you might want to set a reminder somewhere on your mobile to be on point closer to the airing date. Did you enjoy the second trailer? Let me know down in the comments section below.

Netflix Presents: “Jessica Jones” (Season Two) Official Trailer

If you love her that’s fine but if you hate her she likely doesn’t give a rat’s @$$ about it….yes my friends, we finally have a full trailer for the upcoming, second season of Marvel’s “Jessica Jones”. The second go-round for this private investigator with superhuman abilities will be available for streaming in full in March so let’s check out the trailer to get an idea of what’s coming.

The Cast/Characters:
Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones
Rachael Taylor as Patricia “Trish” Walker
Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth
Eka Darville as Malcolm Ducasse
Leah Gibson as Ingrid
J.R. Ramirez as Oscar
David Tennant as Kilgrave

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Now I didn’t actually read the original “Alias” series where the character comes from but I have been loving all of these Netflix Original Series quite a bit and yes even “Iron Fist”. I tell you I still don’t know why there was so much rancor for that one. I’ve been following the Marvel Cinematic Universe since it started and love these grounded heroes as well. The continuity is strong and they just keep on building it up. The “Black Panther” film opens up soon and you can be sure that I will be there but most likely after the Toy Fair which is that same weekend. IMHO Marvel Television and Marvel Studios are killing it. The folks at WB really need to sit and refocus all of these initiatives and make them work in the fans eyes. “Justice League” while watchable was still pretty disappointing and it makes me think they need some sort of edgy run of connected series on the small screen like this stuff to work off of the shows on The CW Network but I digress. I really enjoyed the first season of “Jessica Jones” despite not knowing the character much and felt she was great in “Defenders” as well. What did you readers think of the trailer? Will you be binging this one? Have you started your exploration of these shows at all? If not you are missing out for sure.

SyFy Presents: “Krypton” Official Trailer #1

This coming March, DC Comics fans will learn that not every show has to be secured on The CW Network as the pre-history of Superman’s ancestors is presented during the show “Krypton”. It’s going to come care of the SyFy Network and the first official trailer is here to enjoy. Let’s take a look.

The Premise: According to IGN, Krypton will follow Superman’s grandfather, Seg-El; whose family, the House of El, has been ostracized and shamed. Seg-El fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos.

The Cast/Characters:
Cameron Cuffe as Seg-El
Georgina Campbell as Lyta Zod
Ian McElhinney as Val-El
Elliot Cowan as Daron-Vex
Ann Ogbomo as Alura Zod
Rasmus Hardiker as Kem
Wallis Day as Nyssa-Vex
Aaron Pierre as Dev-Em
Shaun Sipos as Adam Strange
Blake Ritson as Vril Dox

Additionally, Seg’s father Ter-El, Doomsday and Hawkgirl will also appear in the television series. Paula Malcomson will appear as Charys.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: While this full official trailer was still on the short side, I am finding myself a little more interested in this series and this might just be because DC big screen presentations are disappointing me while their television shows are keeping me engaged. I do like the idea of Adam Strange in the show and now we know that Braniac is the main antagonist to fend off. This will be the first time either of these characters have appeared in a live action series so I am excited to see how they are fleshed out. I know that Hawkgirl is listed as part of the cast so perhaps the Green Lantern Corps will be along somewhere as well. One can only hope. We have until March so I am assuming that another trailer will come. Don’t forget that “Black Lightning” will have its premiere on The CW Network in the coming days. That one looks interesting too. Let me know what you think of this trailer and your preliminary thoughts on the show might be. See you next time.
