American Gods to Start Writing Season Three Tomorrow

While it seemed like all anyone could focus on was the behind the scenes events in regards to American Gods season two, that didn’t stop the STARZ series from being picked up for a third season and gaining a showrunner in the process. This was only after two episodes and as we are now six episodes in, I can personally say that this season was worth the wait. Fans only have two more episodes to go before the finale, which is sure to be just as bit, if not more; shocking than season one’s last episode. While we wait for

American Gods Season 2 Episode 6: A Blast To the Past

Come take a ride to the 1930s where we see some of our favorite gods before they were submerged into the current war that makes up American Gods. Episode six highlights Mr. Wednesday and his burlesque days, alongside his son Donar [Germaic name for Thor] and Donar’s showstopper lover Columbia. Before wanting to start a war with the New Gods, Grimnir looked to put on a good show every night, where his worship was in the form of boisterous applause, especially for his strong son. That’s not to say that Odin also can’t perform and we see Anansi show up

Fan-Casting Pablo Schreiber as Kraven the Hunter

When the Marvel Netflix universe was going strong, I was a strong advocate in getting actor Pablo Schreiber involved in one of the shows. But, now that the Defenders-verse is gone, so is the chance of Schreiber playing someone within the Marvel universe in those series. But, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t many possibilities for the actor, if he chose to be in the MCU or if the studio even approached him. Let’s just say that both the studio and Schreiber all for it, I believe Kraven the Hunter would be a perfect role for him to slip into.

Mustafa Shakir Will Be Baron Samedi in American Gods

Casting announcements such as Kahyun Kim as New Media and Devery Jacobs as Sam Black Crow were both well publicized prior to American Gods’ second season. But, why wasn’t it announced that Luke Cage’s Mustafa Shakir would be in it as well!? Last month I posted an article that speculated that Shakir had seemingly hinted that he would be playing Baron Samedi in the second season and now I can officially confirm it based on an Instagram post the actor recently shared: View this post on Instagram “Trouble is you think you got time, but time has you baby.” #mewe

American Gods Season 2 Episode 3: Welcome New Media and Sam Black Crow! [Spoilers]

Things get a little funky in the third episode of American Gods’ second season. We pick up where episode two began, in the aftermath of Wednesday sacrificing his car Betty in order to crash the train that Shadow had been held and tortured on. While Shadow, Sweeney, and Laura, despite being in pieces; survived, I have to wonder if this is the last of Mr. Town that we will see? Surely, the show wouldn’t have brought on Dean Winters to only be in one episode? Or perhaps I’m wrong. Either way, this episode has some really intense parts. We see

American Gods Brings in New Media in New Clip

Among Mamma-Ji and Sam Black Crow, New Media has been one of the most anticipated new characters on American Gods. Once Gillian Anderson made the move to not return for the show’s second season, the hunt had been on for Mr. World to have a new partner in the war between the Old Gods and New Gods. Enter Kahyun Kim as New Media, who is finally premiering on the series in episode three, premiering this Sunday. You can watch the new video of her introduction below. Kim may play an adaptation of Media, but it is different than season one,
