CBS Says Michael Dorn Isn’t Returning As Worf In Star Trek: Picard

While we still don’t have an official release date for Star Trek: Picard, beyond an early 2020 possibility, we do have a fairly comprehensive idea of the guest stars and returning characters for the CBS All Access series. However, one Star Trek actor who won’t be coming back is Michael Dorn, after CBS confirmed that he won’t be reprising the role of Worf. The news comes following fan speculation over Dorn’s signature possibly appearing on cinematographer Philip Lanyon’s wrap present.

When sharing a photo of a signed slate, Lanyon mentioned that it includes some of “original Tng cast.” Fans spotted Patrick Stewart’s name, as well as officially cast figures such as Marina Sirtis, Jonathan Frakes, Brent Spiner and Jeri Ryan. New cast members Alison Pill and Santiago Cabrera also make an appearance, along with possibly Isa Briones, Harry Treadaway and Eva Evagora. One unclaimed signature seemed to suggest Dorn though,

Breaking Bad Star Being Eyed To Play The McU’s Professor X

With 20th Century Fox now part of The Walt Disney Company after the big merger, Marvel fans are waiting for the moment when those world-famous mutants – namely the X-Men, Deadpool, and Fantastic Four – finally make their way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

It’s an exciting prospect, to be sure, especially as we now head into Phase 4 in this post-Endgame world. Nevertheless, McU chief Kevin Feige has already told us that the X-Men won’t be entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a very long time, as there’s still tons to be done before the likes of Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Doctor Strange and the rest cross paths with Wolverine, Magneto and Professor X.

Speaking of those last two, we heard earlier this week that Marvel Studios might be casting people of color for Erik Lehnsherr and Charles Xavier, roles previously portrayed by Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender

Marvel May Cast A Person Of Color For The McU’s Professor X And Magneto

With 20th Century Fox now nestled under the gargantuan umbrella that is The Walt Disney Company, movie fans are eagerly anticipating the moment when those world-famous mutants – namely the X-Men, Deadpool, and Fantastic Four – return home to Marvel Studios.

It’s an exciting prospect, particularly as we ease into Phase 4 in this post-Endgame world. Nevertheless, McU chief Kevin Feige has been quick to stress that the X-Men won’t be entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a very long time, as there is still much work to be done before the likes of Captain Marvel, Black Panther, and Spider-Man the Guardians of the Galaxy share the screen with Wolverine, Magneto and Professor X.

Speaking of the latter duo, there have been rumblings that Marvel Studios is considering casting people of color for Erik Lehnsherr and Charles Xavier, roles previously played by Ian McKellan and Michael Fassbender (both of whom

Ukrainian Filmmaker Oleg Sentsov Released From Russian Prison After More Than 5 Years

Ukrainian Filmmaker Oleg Sentsov Released From Russian Prison After More Than 5 Years
After more than five years of detention, and calls from international artists groups and governments, Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov was freed from a Russian prison today. In what has long been seen as an unjust situation, Sentsov was convicted in 2015 of plotting terrorist attacks and sentenced to 20 years after supporting the 2014 Euro Maidan protests and opposing Russia’s annexation of Crimea. In 2017, he went on a 145-day hunger strike, demanding that Russia release all Ukrainian political prisoners, but not asking for his own release. That same year, he was awarded the Pen/Barbery Freedom to Write Award. Pen America today called the release “a long overdue moment of joy and celebration for Sentsov, his family and all those who have fought for his freedom.”

The filmmaker, whose credits include 2011’s Gaamer, was released as part of a swap of 70 prisoners between Russia and Ukraine. According to media reports, planes carrying

Star Trek Franchise Looks Set To Follow Marvel And Cross Various Platforms

The Star Trek franchise looks set to go where no franchise has gone before. Well, except maybe one or two.

CBS and Viacom are in the process of a merger, bringing the once-separated rights of the Trek brand under the same roof for the first time in 13 years. And it seems the studio’s going to waste no time in expanding the universe in bold new ways across multiple mediums.

As reported by Deadline, ViacomCBS chief Bob Bakish promised big things for the Trek and Mission: Impossible franchises at today’s investor call, making clear that both have potential to leverage across “all the companies’ platforms.” Incoming CBS CEO Joe Ianniello added that an international angle is also key as “scale is becoming more and more important all the time.”

The last time the Trek universe was under one ownership was back in 2006, with Star Trek: Enterprise having wrapped up the previous year.

From ‘Star Trek’ to ‘SpongeBob,’ Here’s All the Content in Play For CBS-Viacom Merger

  • Variety
Hollywood’s landscape has changed dramatically since Viacom and CBS were last married in 2005. Now that the two media giants seek a Wall Street reunion, there are endless possibilities for the future of its shared content pie.

Huge action franchises like “Mission: Impossible” and “Transformers” from Paramount Pictures could explore new origin stories or exploit quirky side-characters for streaming series on the CBS over-the-top platform All Access. All Access is also currently building out the “Star Trek” TV universe, with three shows under the franchise’s umbrella set to be on the streaming service in 2020. Signs of synergy are already cropping up as well. CBS, which owns the TV licensing rights to “Star Trek,” gave its blessing for a cartoon take on the sci-fi classic at Nickelodeon this year.

Not only would a flurry of development that leverages the well-known intellectual property of Viacom and CBS pacify shareholders in both companies,

Star Trek: Picard and the Mystery of Data

Ryan Britt Aug 3, 2019

Brent Spiner just fueled a popular fan theory about the nature of Data on the upcoming Star Trek: Picard.

The most anticipated new science fiction TV series of next year is without a doubt Star Trek: Picard. Because Star Trek: The Next Generation essentially defined late ‘80s and ‘90s sci-fi on TV, a direct sequel to that show not only gets to push sci-fi forward into the future, but also trade heavily on nostalgia for one of the most creative periods in franchise history. And, after San Diego Comic-Con the most nostalgic and confusing Picard news was easily the return of Brent Spiner as the android Mr. Data in the trailer. To be clear, Spiner returning to play Data in Star Trek: Picard is a little like J.J. Abrams suddenly announcing that Emperor Palpatine is in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Star Trek: Picard Is Getting a Prequel Novel and a Comic Book Series

The highly anticipated Star Trek: Picard series is going to get an expanded story thanks to a prequel novel being written and a comic book series being developed. These projects are going to fill in the story gap between the 2002 film Star Trek: Nemesis and the upcoming Picard series.

The first prequel to appear will come from Idw, and it’s called Star Trek: Picard – Countdown. This is a three-issue comic book series that will “center around a single mission that would change the life of Picard.” That series is being written by Mike Johnson and Picard supervising producer Kirsten Beyer, and it will launch in November.

Following the conclusion of Countdown, the novel will be released. That novel is called The Last Best Hope, and it will “lead directly into the Picard television series proper, and introduce new characters appearing in the show.” The series is being written by

According to CBS All Access, “The Man Who Fell to Earth” will follow an alien who arrives on Earth at a turning point in human evolution and must confront his own past to determine our future.

How Star Trek: Picard Compares to The Next Generation

Kayti Burt Aug 5, 2019

"We're [not] doing the dark version of The Next Generation," said Star Trek: Picard executive producer Alex Kurtzman about the new show.

Star Trek: Picard was one of the most-anticipated properties at San Diego Comic Con this year, with Sir Patrick Stewart himself taking the stage at Hall H to rapturous applause. For many Star Trek fans in attendance and at home, the question of where Picard will stand in relation to Star Trek: The Next Generation, the series that created the iconic character of Jean-Luc Picard, was at the forefront. Luckily, the panel thoroughly addressed that question...

"We pointedly did not want to make a sequel to Tng," said executive producer Akiva Goldsman. "I think, tonally, it's a little bit of a hybrid: slower, more gentle, more lyrical. It is more character-based. It also takes on the same thing that The Original Series took on, that Next Gen took on,

A Second Voyager Star May Appear In Star Trek: Picard Season 2

The first full trailer for Star Trek: Picard revealed that several familiar faces will be returning alongside Sir Patrick Stewart’s title character in the upcoming series, including Brent Spiner’s Data and Jeri Ryan’s Seven of Nine. Seven’s reappearance was particularly surprising as she doesn’t hail from The Next Generation like the rest of the old favorites but from its sister series, Voyager. And now, it sounds as if Ryan could be joined by another of her co-stars from the show in season 2.

Trekkie Girls caught up with Voyager star Robert Picardo at London Film and Comic Con this past weekend, and the actor revealed that he’s currently in talks to make a comeback to the Trek universe for Picard season 2.
