Marvel Puts Black Panther Into Motion with Digital Series

Black Panther

Marvel continues to mine its vast collection of super heroes with a new motion comic, Black Panther: Who is the Black Panther? The 12-part series — debuting Tuesday on iTunes, Xbox Live, Microsoft Zune and PlayStation Network — is based on the 2005-08 comic book series written by Reginald Hudlin, the former entertainment president of BET. Hudlin is an executive producer and wrote the motion comic, which was originally planned as a TV series for BET. (A Marvel spokesperson says the series was shifted to digital following the success of previous motion comics Spider-Woman, Astonishing X-Men and Iron Man: Extremis.)

Three Rivers

CBS' new organ transplant drama, Three Rivers, has made organ donors of its stars. Most of them, anyway.

Castmates Alex O'Loughlin (Moonlight), Alfre Woodard (St. Elsewhere), Justina Machado (Six Feet Under) and other series regulars addressed the issue during a set visit as part of the Television Critics Association fall press tour.

O'Loughlin said he's been a donor since his teenage years.

"It just seemed like the cool thing to do," he joked, before adding, "I don't need it anymore, and I don't have any religious beliefs or anything that keep me from doing it."

Note to NBC: Don't Squander Alfre Woodard

Alfre Woodard by Michael Bejzian/

Dear NBC:I heard that Alfre Woodard has been cast to play Christian Slater's boss on My Own Worst Enemy this fall, and I am writing to make sure that you treat her in a manner befitting her status as one of her generation's best actresses — unlike some other network who shall remain nameless. True, she got an Emmy nomination out of her much-derided stint on Desperate Housewives, but not because the material was extra special! Yes, her steely demeanor and exacting stare are perfect to play an undercover bigwig. But I'm nervous. I mean, I haven't liked anything Slater has done since Heathers, and that was 1989! So you can understand my concern. Please take care of my Alfre. She certainly deserves it. Go rent Passion Fish and you'll see what I mean.Thanks for listening.Sincerely,Mickey O'Connor read more
