Lin-Manuel Miranda is cast as the voice of Gizmoduck in Disney XD's DuckTales.

Image
Disney made a big announcement today by revealing that Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda has been cast to voice Gizmoduck in the upcoming Disney XD show DuckTales.

Gizmoduck is also known as Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera and is a,
"brilliant young intern working for Gyro Gearloose, the personal mad scientist of Scrooge McDuck (voiced by actor David Tennant)"
From the released art for Gizmoduck and Fenton Crackshell-Cabrerea, it appears that they are staying faithful to the character's look in the original series.

I know there are a lot of people out there that are flipping out over this news and saying that now the show will be amazing but I just don't see it. To me, the show's potential hasn't gone up or down with the casting of Miranda. I'm excited to see what he brings to this role but I'm personally not flipping out.

Though I can definitely say that I am flipping out that this show is returning. I absolutely loved it when I was growing up.

DuckTales…

It is being reported that the n this film version, like the Marvel comics,
"Hardy’s Eddie Brock is able to converse and have a relationship with the symbiote, which culminates to him becoming Venom." It is also important to note that this Venom film is going to be set outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe which could mean that he may not interact with Tom Holland's Spider-Man which is a shame.

What do you think of Tom Hardy being cast as Eddie Brock / Venom?

Seth MacFarlane's upcoming Star Trek parody show on Fox, The Orville, looks like Galaxy Quest.

Image
By Grabthar's hammer!! This all seems familiar. In what is an obvious parody of Star Trek and can be best described as a re-imagining of Galaxy Quest, Seth MacFarlane has teamed up with Fox for a new comedic sci-fi show that is ... well, a Star Trek parody. The upcoming show is titled The Orville and definitely looks like it will have some pretty funny moments. It'll be interesting to see MacFarlane bring his usual humor to a live action television series and how audiences will take to it. Ted was a hit so I suppose this may have a chance. The first trailer gives fans a great look at what to expect and introduces some of the show's main characters.

Show synopsis:
"From Emmy Award-winning executive producer and creator Seth MacFarlane (FAMILY GUY, “Ted”) and directed by Jon Favreau (“The Jungle Book,” “Iron Man”), THE ORVILLE is a one-hour science fiction series set 400 years in the future that follows the adventures of the U.S.S. Orville, a mid-level exploratory ves…
