Marvel Netflix A.K.A. Jessica Jones Villain is Who!

(PCM) If you are swept up in the Netflix Daredevil hysteria, this news may by just for you. A former Doctor Who is a major villain. Netflix follow up show to Daredevil will be A.K.A. Jessica Jones played by Krysten Ritter seen below on set.

Jessica Jones is a class B Marvel superhero similar to Daredevil. A villain responsible for her backstory known as Purple Man will played by none other than former Dr Who, David Tennant. Upon seeing him portray the Purple Man you may never feel the same way about David Tennant again. We won’t spoil the story but be warned you may never experience a darker story in superhero lore. After all Jessica Jones has enjoyed a Marvel adult title in Marvel’s MAX series.

A.K.A. Jessica Jones will pick up with Jessica Jones after she’s made a short super hero run but is moved on as a private investigator. Tennant’s Purple Man will be in all 13 episodes which clearly indicates his character will be to Jones what Wilson Fisk is to Daredevil. With 13 episodes of Purple Man it’s also smart to assume he won’t be just her back story but her ongoing antagonist. An interesting side note is that the Purple Man really has it in for Daredevil.  If the show Daredevil is any indicator of how raw and visually upsetting a show can be, Jessica Jones is in for a very rough ride during her 13 episodes.

The photo below is of David Tennant walking along Union Square in lower Manhattan (April 2015). Union Square is a busy area known for it’s unique lively characters who inhabit Manhattan. Union Square not as well known as touristy Time’s Square, yet it is much more interesting. You can see David Tennant is dressed in purple which would indicate Marvel is taking the grounded in reality approach, perhaps abandoning the character’s purple skin color and merely giving Purple Man an affinity for the color purple. However in the comic book, the Purple Man has purple skin due to a freak accident. Purple skin could be explained and make for a more visual villain but this isn’t a canon killer. As long as the original story of how the Purple Man affects Jessica Jones is portrayed accurately that will make for the best story.

Marvel and Netflix have a full mini-universe planned. Hell’s Kitchen will have a full host of super heroes. Four in total. A.K.A. Jessica Jones is following Daredevil in 2015 to be followed by Iron Fist and Luke Cage. The four shows will culminate in a team up series named The Defenders which follows comic book canon. The most interesting fact of all is that these Netflix Marvel super hero characters are part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).  They could legitimately appear in any MCU film along with the likes of Iron Man or Captain Marvel.

Also featured in the Jessica Jones Netflix original will be Rachael Taylor, Carrie-Anne Moss and Mike Colter as Luke Cage. “Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones” is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.

Frances Bean Cobain Admits She’s Not A Nirvana Fan

Frances-Bean-Cobain

(PCM) Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of the late Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, is finally breaking her silence in regards to her father’s death and has given quite a revealing interview to Rolling Stone magazine in support of the upcoming HBO documentary “Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck” on which she serves as an executive producer.

Surprisingly in the interview, Frances says with a laugh “I don’t really like Nirvana that much. Sorry, promotional people, Universal. I’m more into Mercury Rev, Oasis, Brian Jonestown Massacre ..etc” Frances does however admit that “Territorial Pissings” off Nirvana’s hit album “Nevermind” is a “great song” and that she sheds tears while listening to “Dumb” off the album “In Utero” because she feels it is a “stripped-down version of Kurt’s perception of himself”.

“Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck” is the first documentary that has been made about Cobain’s life that has the full cooperation of his family. It will air on HBO on May 4th and will tell the story of Cobain’s life using home movies, artwork, photography, journals, demos, personal archives, family archives and songbooks.

You can see a trailer below:

“Price Is Right” Model Accidentally Gives Away A Brand New Car!

Manuela-PIR

(PCM) It is the dream of just about every contestant who appears on “Price Is Right” to be a big winner and walk away a brand new car, but to get one without even having to play the game … that is a dream come true!

A recent contestant named Andrea was attempting to guess the correct price for a car and at first guessed the incorrect price of $19,849. Then, “Price Is Right” model Manuela Abrelaez made an epic error and accidentally revealed the correct price of the brand-new Hyundai Sonata by removing the wrong tag.

Making light of the situation, “Price Is Right” host Drew Carey joked with the contestant “Congratulations! Manuela just gave you a new car! Way to go, Manuela!”

You can see the video below:

Manuela assured that the price was DEFINITELY right this time around!  Poor girl looked so embarrassed.  We just can’t figured out exactly what caused her to remove the second tag!

US Weekly Issues A Retraction After Publishing Allegedly Fake Commentary From Kendall Jenner

Kendall-Bruce1

(PCM) Celebrity gossip magazine, US Weekly, has issued an retraction after they published comments allegedly made by model and “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star Kendall Jenner about her father Bruce Jenner’s gender transformation.

US Weekly ran a story titled “Kendall Jenner Breaks Silence on Bruce Jenner’s Transition: ‘I Will Always Love My Dad’” on March 18 and in the story Kendall is quoted as being incredibly supportive of her father’s decision.

Kendall’s alleged quote reads “He’s a wonderful man. And just because he’s changing shoes now, so to speak, doesn’t make him less wonderful. I will always love my dad, whether he’s a man or a woman.”

After the story was published, Kendall was outraged and took to her social media account to slam US Weekly and further claim that she never even did an interview with them in the first place to make the alleged comments.

Kendall’s father Bruce Jenner has yet to publicly comment on the rumors and speculation about his supposed gender transformation, so a quote from his daughter would be assuming that all of the rumors are in fact true.

US Weekly revealed that the supposed interview took place with a freelance journalist during the taping of the Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber back on March 14. Despite Kendall’s comments about the interview never taking place, the journalist in question stands by the interviews authenticity, however US Weekly had some concern about the manner in which it was obtained. They issued an apology to both Kendall and Bruce Jenner and have since removed the article from their publication.

Looking To Own A Rather Large Piece Of Walking Dead Memorabilia?

Grantville1

(PCM) Fans of AMC’s hit TV series that just so happen to have a spare $680,000 can hop on over to Ebay to place their bids on the historic town of Grantville, Georgia which is currently up for sale. The town in located approximately 35 miles outside of Atlanta.

The town was heavily featured during season three of “The Walking Dead” and has also been the set of several other films such as “Lawless” and “Dumb and Dumber To”.  Television and film studios are attracted to the town’s rustic and old-fashioned feel and there are even four additional films that are currently in the works. It has great historic appeal, as most of the buildings were built back in the 1880’s and there is even a railroad that runs right through the heart of town.

Jim Sells, the former mayor of Grantville says that he would love a movie studio or commercial developer to purchase the town. The current price is only asking approximately $30 per square inch and much of it has already been renovated.

It is also Sell’s hope that many of the buildings can be turned in to loft apartments, retail spaces, restaurants and more. Revenue is also earned from the “Walking Dead” tours that take place in the town, as well as, residuals on recent and upcoming film projects.

Thus far there have been no bids on town, but there are 885 people currently watching the auction.
