Heroes In The Media

Filming in Toronto. In March. Of course they are. Why they couldn't have done anything while I was actually living there....

And with that news, I definitely in! Love Zachary Levi! Isn't he married to the actress who originally played Candace on the show?

Curse you, NBC, for giving me a good reason to watch this reboot!

Oh Zachary Levi, why are you willingly going into this mess?  Hearing the music in that short trailer was enough to give me an involuntary shudder.

Notice the placement of HRG and Levi.  It implies Zach's character is spying on HRG every bit as much as the person with powers (or at the very least is some kind of opposing force--which would probably make him the "heavy" of the series, since they left HRG on the side of the Angels near the end).

Yeah, Zach's character looks evil for sure.

I just read this blog post discussing major points where Heroes went wrong the first time.  An interesting read, at least from my perspective.

Synopsis and teaser trailer for Reborn:
 

From creator/executive producer Tim Kring, who imagined NBC's original critically-acclaimed 2006 "Heroes" series, comes "Heroes Reborn," an epic 13-episode event series that chronicles the lives of ordinary people who discover they possess extraordinary abilities.
 
A year ago, a terrorist attack in Odessa, Texas, left the city decimated. Blamed for the tragic event, those with extraordinary abilities are in hiding or on the run from those with nefarious motives.
 
Two such vigilantes include Luke (Zachary Levi, "Chuck") and Joanne (Judith Shekoni, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2"), who are seeking to avenge a tragic loss. 

 

Noah Bennet, aka H.R.G. (Jack Coleman, "Heroes"), has gone off the grid but conspiracy theorist Quentin Frady (Henry Zebrowski, "A to Z") finds him and opens his eyes to the truth behind the Odessa tragedy. 

 

While in hiding, some are discovering their newfound skills. Awkward teen Tommy (Robbie Kay, "Once Upon a Time") just wants to be normal and win the girl of his dreams, Emily (Gatlin Green, "Criminal Minds"), but normalcy is virtually impossible after learning of a new ability that terrifies him. Coming from a very sheltered upbringing, a bold and ethereal teenager, Malina (Danika Yarosh, "Shameless"), has been told she is destined for greatness. 

 

In Tokyo, a quiet and unique young woman, Miko (Kiki Sukezane, "Death Yankee 3"), is trying to track down her missing father while hiding an extraordinary secret that will make her a force to be reckoned with. Elsewhere, a different type of hero is emerging through former soldier Carlos (Ryan Guzman, "The Boy Next Door").

 

Meanwhile, Erica (Rya Kihlstedt, "Masters of Sex"), the head of the highly successful tech conglomerate Renautas, has an agenda of her own.

 

For better or for worse, some are fated to cross paths with assorted heroes of the past, including Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka), Matt Parkman (Greg Grunberg), Mohinder Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy) and the Haitian (Jimmy Jean-Louis), among others. Yet, together, their ultimate destiny is nothing less than saving the world and mankind.

The badass Hiro we were promised in "Five Years Gone" finally makes his appearance!

 

And they apparently decided, "what if we do start with the terrorist attack in Odessa this time?"

I wish they would drop the nonsense with the eclipse somehow triggering people with powers -- when all the retconning after Season 1 in the original series showed that "Heroes" had been around for years well before that happened.

I don't know if they're using that as a trigger or if it's just a reference to the signature of the show.  The idea that the eclipse triggered the powers was itself a retcon, in S3 when they said "what if another eclipse took their powers away?"

Entertainment Weekly has 5 ways NBC's revival seeks to avoid past mistakes

Another benefit of the current schedule, Kring notes, is nearly the whole series will be shot before an episode has aired. “We won’t be really subject to the idea of ‘fan favorites’ and all that,” he said. “We’re gonna be in the can and committed to the story that we’re telling.”

Yeah, this one right above was shown yesterday (July 12) at the San Diego ComicCon in their largest room, and then released to the general public through YouTube.

 

All the returning characters identified so far in the media were in the trailer: Noah, Hiro, Angela, the Haitian, Mohinder and Micah (who so grown-up now, they made sure on the trailer to show him saying "Call me Micah" so you'd know who he was LOL).  As seen from previous trailers, this Hiro is like the future Hiro who famously told Peter "Save the cheerleader, save the world".

 

Tim Kring (I believe) said that Milo wasn't available due to the timing - the first I've seen be said that Milo is showing any willingness to return for a guest appearance.  (I can't remember who wrote that and can't find it, though.)

For those who haven't heard, Heroes Reborn has an app (now for both Android and iOS).  By way of comparison, when the original series went off the air in 2010, the current version of the iPhone was the 3GS, Google had yet to release Froyo, and Instagram was not yet available.

So, no previews for those of us without smartphones or tablets?

Also, are they doing online comics like when the original series aired?

I have no idea on the online comics (and it aggravates me that the originals have been taken down, even though many were never collected into books).  And all I'll say is that, so far as I know, the prequel is intended to be exclusive to app users; given that Suicide Squad and Deadpool have recently demonstrated that people don't seem to appreciate exclusivity even when it's something they've made a decent investment in and stayed out all night to see, I wouldn't be surprised if the prequel finds its way online.

Really? I thought all the comics got published; or was it just the first couple of seasons? I'll have to look that up.

Interview with Jack Coleman

 

Den of Geek: Is getting the glasses back like Indiana Jones putting on his hat and jacket with his whip?

 

Jack Coleman: Yeah, it’s kind of awesome actually. I told people the first go round that the glasses do most of the acting. So just putting them back on was a wonderful, familiar feeling. The first time I put them on, for the first hour or so felt a little like Halloween dress up. Very quickly it came back to the character, the heart and the show.

 

Minor spoilers.

Thanks for posting the sneak peeks!

So in the one with the sword wielding Japanese girl (Miko?), she makes a point of saying that she always wears a red bow. I've been watching some old episodes today, and the girl Hiro saves from the speeding truck to convince Ando he has powers has a red bow (that's how they figure out which girl needs saving). It would be kind of cool if Miko were that little girl. Not that it would matter, but it would be kind of a fun Easter egg.

Heroes Reborn Not Getting a Season 2

http://tvline.com/2016/01/13/heroes-reborn-season-2-cancelled-not-returning-nbc/

 

Confirmed: Next week’s Heroes Reborn season finale will be a series finale.

“As far as I know there are no more incarnations of Heroes coming,” NBC entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt told reporters Wednesday at the Television Critics Assoc. winter press tour in Pasadena, adding that it was “always the plan” to do just one season “unless [series creator] Tim [Kring] woke up one day and said, ‘Oh, I have another chapter to tell.’

“I think we’re coming to the end… of the world, maybe,” Greenblatt added with a smirk. “Stay tuned.”

Can't wait to see what the cliffhanger will be ?  A cliffhanger that will, of course, never be resolved.

 

I'm hoping it consists of Katana girl trapped 7957 years in the future with the Carnival of Crime from Season 4 of the original series.

In keeping with tradition, I think it should be the charred remains of Nathan Petrelli come back as a zombie.
