The Greatest American Hero

ABC has decided to put in a pilot order for a reboot of The Greatest American Hero. Intended as a remake of the cult classic 80’s TV series, the program is said to feature a female lead. It is unknown who will play the titular heroine, but the character is described as one Meera, a 30-year-old Indian-American resident of Cleveland.

Thor: Ragnarok

This is due to the fact that Thor will have spent the past two years imprisoned in the world of Muspelheim. Here, the Asgardian warrior will face off against such enemies as Fire Giants and the demon Surtur before he is able to escape and make his way back to Asgard.

Black Klansman

Jordan Peele and Spike Lee will collaborate on the planned comedy Black Klansman.

About the author

Reggie Peralta

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I’ve made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I’m not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school’s TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
