-ABC cancels Agent Carter, Castle, Nashville and The Muppet Show
 
-CBS green-lights MacGuyver and Training Day
 
-Joel Kinnaman to star in Netflix series Altered Carbon
 
-Supergirl moves to The CW

Last week ABC went all French Revolution and put the guillotine to Agent Carter, Castle, Nashville AND The Muppets Show. After a disappointing season 2 of Agent Carter, it wasn’t a shock that we wouldn’t see Hayley Atwell reprise her role, but 8 year vet Castle fell victim to contracts and loss of a main cast member; the Muppets got zero traction and even less marketing, with Nashville getting the guitar, I mean axe, at the Disney owned studio shocking a lot of fans. 
 
In the wake of all the cancellations last week, CBS, the most watched network, pulled the plug on the last CSI franchise, CSI: Cyber, but greenlit a reboot of MacGuyver and a series spinoff of the Antoine Fuqua movie Training Day. MacGuyver will star Lucas Till of X-Men fame as the man with the ability to make bombs out of household items which, thankfully, inspired the likes of MacGruber. Training Day on the other hand stars Bill Paxton playing the Denzel Washington type role in the series with newcomer Justin Cornwell taking on the Ethan Hawke, young cop, role. 
 
As reported by Variety, Joel Kinnaman has signed on to star in the Netflix series, Altered Carbon. The series is based on the Richard K. Morgan novel that takes place in the 25th century, where the human mind has been digitized and souls are transferable. Kinnaman will play Takeshi Kovacs, a former interstellar warrior who was put into “storage” and later downloaded into the future. Game of Thrones’ Miguel Sapochnik, who directed Season 5’s critically acclaimed episode Hardhome, will tackle the first episode with Laeta Kalogridis, who wrote Terminator Genisys and Shutter Island, writing the series and serving as showrunner. 
 
SUPERHERO RUNDOWN
 
We talked last week on TV Talk about the possibility of Supergirl heading from CBS to The CW and last week it was made official. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Supergirl will make her way to The CW and move production to Vancouver where Greg Berlanti’s Arrow and The Flash call home. 
 
Krysten Ritter, who plays Marvel’s Jessica Jones, sat down with Digital Spy last week letting us in on some of the goings on in Marvel’s Netflix TV Universe. The superhero with a love of cheap whiskey and sexual soirees said Jessica Jones season 2 would shoot immediately after The Defenders and also that she can’t say if she’s shot anything for Luke Cage.  
 
Not only did ABC go ahead and cancel everything last week including Christmas, they also crushed fans of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. when they didn’t pick up Marvel’s Most Wanted, the much anticipated spin-off of the adventures of Bobbi and Lance played by Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood. The two left the series during a tearful bar scene and fans have been clamoring for their return, but apparently ABC didn’t hear their pleas. 
 
And finally in some happy news, Powerless, a DC Comics comedy about regular folks dealing with the damage left behind by superheroes is a go at NBC. The cast includes, Alan Tudyk, Danny Pudi, Christina Kirk and Vanessa Hudgens. Hudgens will play Emily, an insurance adjuster left to clean up the mess left behind by the superheros and the villains who love to try and kill them and in the process destroy cities.

It’s Monday which means its time for the weekend box office report brought to you by our friends at AMC theatres. The box office juggernaut that is Disney continues its dominating hold on the box office with Captain America: Civil War taking the No 1 spot with $72.6 million dollars, snagging the record of 6th highest grossing super-hero movie of all time. Cap’s latest record also helped Marvel cross 10 billion dollars worldwide for their Marvel Cinematic Universe, total. The Jungle Book took the No 2 spot with $17.8 million dollars, crossing $800 million to bringing the worldwide total to $828.1 million. Money Monster pulled in $15 million for the No 3 spot with The Darkness taking in $5.2 million dollars for the No 4 spot. And at No 5, Mother’s Day with $3.2 million dollars. 
 
The Black Panther movie got a massive boost of hype when Chadwick Boseman’s turn as the Wakanda Warrior turned out to be one of the best parts of Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War. Marvel then continued to build the anticipation when Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o entered talks to join the cast. Now, things have hit a fever pitch of excitement for the fans with THR reporting that director Ryan Coogler will officially reteam again with his Creed and Fruitvale Station star Michael B. Jordan. Jordan has joined the cast of Black Panther in an unknown role, speculated to be the movie’s villain. 
 
Deadline is reporting that Gareth Edwards has exited Godzilla 2 in a split reported to be amicable for both Edwards and Warner Bros Pictures. Edwards, who helmed the first film in the series in 2014, promptly signed on to direct Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which will release later this December. Edwards has his own projects in various forms of development he wants to pursue, which Deadline reports as smaller in scale than the back-to-back tentpole-size pictures he directed with Godzilla and then Star Wars. Max Borenstein wrote the current version of Godzilla 2, which was dated last week for a release on March 22, 2019. 
 
BUY OR SELL
 
In a report from the Tracking Board, Jennifer Lawrence has been tapped by her Hunger Games director Gary Ross to join Sandra Bullock in the Ocean’s 11 reboot as the right hand woman to Bullock’s ring leader. The revival was announced back in October, with news that Bullock was leading a predominantly female cast. The project was reportedly initiated by Clooney, Soderbergh and late producer Jerry Weintraub with Olivia Milch set to pen the screenplay.
 
On the heels of the Cannes premiere of Steven Spielberg’s The BFG, Disney
has released a new trailer and poster to capitalize on the buzz coming out of the prestigious film festival. The movie directed by Spielberg, and written by his ET screenwriter Melissa Mathison, has the general consensus saying that The BFG is a big, beautiful picture with Spielberg’s signature heart. 
 
Variety is reporting that Goosebumps director Rob Letterman is on board to direct a reboot of Dungeons and Dragons for Warner Brothers studios. Sources at Variety say that a recent presentation to execs from Letterman helped secure him the job. The film will mark the second go-round for the project following the 2001 version which underwhelmed at the box office. The film has been in development for some time now.
 
Though he’s been rumored for some time now as joining Hugh Jackman in his last go around as Wolverine, Patrick Stewart’s Professor X had yet to be confirmed as officially joining the project. But thanks to an interview with producer Hutch Parker, Collider’s own Steve “Frosty” Weintraub was able to finally confirm that Stewart will be joining the ensemble, rumored to be a story loosely based on the Old Man Logan storyline from the comics.
