V for Vendetta
Bleeding Cool reports British broadcaster Channel 4 is developing a TV series based on Alan Moore’s V for Vendetta.
Once Upon a Time
Actress Mekia Cox spoke to TV Guide about how Once Upon a Time’s Princess Tiana differs from her original incarnation in the animated film.
From what I’ve seen on the show, they take pieces of the character and put their own spin on it. She does love to cook, I can say that. She is aspiring to have her own restaurant one day. She does have some similarities to the Tiana we already know and love, but then they give her a little bit more of a backstory.

Speaking with TV Guide, Wendy Mericle stated the four-part Crisis on Earth-X crossover will explore true love between Oliver and “one other character in the Arrow-Verse.”
It’s Oliver and one other character in the Arrow-verse’s story. It really explores the question of true love, and what does that look like? It’s emotionally really compelling, and you’re going to be surprised by what he learns and how he learns it and who he learns it from. It’s pretty crazy stuff, I’m not going to lie.
Odette Annabelle spoke to Entertainment Weekly about her slow transformation into the villain Reign.
Samantha is a single mother, she’s a hard worker, she’s very much a working mom in the sense that she’s trying to juggle it all, as one does, as I do in real life. She loves her daughter more than words can express. They have a really special bond. What I think is really special about this storyline is it’s a slow play and you’ll get to see this whole heartbreaking story unfold in a really — they’re taking their time with it, and we have the time to do it. I think the audience is really going to hopefully relate.
