Dean Norris On Talking Dead Talks “Ozymandias” Breaking Bad Spoilers (Video)

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:11086:]]

Following last night’s episode of Breaking Bad, “Ozymandias,” Dean Norris appeared on the live talk show, Talking Dead, hosted by Chris Hardwick.

Spoilers follow.

Dean Norris talks about the events leading to and what occurred in the episode with the death of Hank Shrader.

Norris goes on to mention how Breaking Bad series writer Vince Gilligan took the character from a jock to one of the more popular, complex and interesting characters on the show.

Comedian Bill Hader thinks that Hank Shrader was the mirror image to Bryan Cranston’s Walter White as Hank was a good person and a better father. It’s joked that Walter White showed more attention to his newborn while kidnapping her than any other time during the show.

There are only two more episodes of Breaking Bad left, and you can check out previews for next week’s episode “Granite State.”

Breaking Bad Saul Goodman Spinoff Series Announced

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:10985:]]

Having been in the works for months, it is now confirmed that the Breaking Bad Saul Goodman TV series has finally been green lit with a deal reached between the show’s creator, Vince Gilligan, AMC and Sony Pictures TV.

Deadline has it that the working title for the new series is “Better Call Saul,” with a one-hour prequel ordered that will focus on the evolution of the Goodman character before he ever became Walter White’s lawyer.

It’s also stated a full series looks to be picked up depending on further negotiations with the Gilligan and the Studio. Apparently, Netflix is also interested in a Saul Goodman series, as they are said to be extremely happy with how Breaking Bad has been performing on their steaming service. 

The character of Saul Goodman, played by Bob Odenkirk, first appeared in Breaking Bad Season 2 quickly becoming a fan-favorite. Basically Goodman is a sleazy lawyer who will bend the law depending on the amount of money.

As Deadline notes, Gilligan has been high on the idea for over a year.

“I would love to see a Saul Goodman spinoff,” Gilligan said in a previous interview. “I like the idea of a lawyer show in which the main lawyer will do anything it takes to stay out of a court of law. He’ll settle on the courthouse steps, whatever it takes to stay out of the courtroom. That would be fun — I would like that.”

Breaking Bad is down to its last three episodes starring Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul airing Sunday nights on AMC at 9pm ET.

Bryan Cranston Says Fans Will Be Satisfied With Breaking Bad Ending (Talking Bad Video)

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:10929:]]

Breaking Bad is down to its last three episodes as the series that started in January of 2008 comes to a close at the end of September after five seasons.

Breaking Bad stars Bryan Cranston as Walter White, a 50-year-old high school chemistry teacher who comes down with cancer and turns to drug dealing to support his family after his death.

Walter White, also known as the infamous Heisenberg, befriends an old student of his, Jess Pinkman, a low-level drug dealer and junkie, played by Aaron Paul. Together the duo “cook” crystal meth, the purest anyone has ever seen making the drug highly lucrative and dangerous as well.

The series also stars Anna Gunn as Skylar White, Walter’s wife, and Dean Norris as Hank Shader, the White’s brother-in-law who happens to be a DEA Agent. Rounding out the cast is Betsy Brandt as Marie Schrader, RJ Mitte as Walter White, Jr., and Bob Odenkirk as Saul Goodman the up-to-no-good-lawyer who may be getting his own spinoff series. Past seasons of Breaking Bad can be caught up through Netflix.

No spoilers here, but Breaking Bad isn’t just about drugs and easy money as it’s more of a chess match between White and just about everybody else with the added drama of his work, friends, family and enemies thrown in.

After last night’s episode, series star Bryan Cranston was featured on Talking Bad, the live talk show hosted by Chris Hardwick, where the actor discusses the show stating fans will be satisfied with the end to Breaking Bad. You can watch the full 7-minute segment with Cranston below.

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:10556:]]

The details we are told include the big announcement will be coming sometime around the series conclusion to Breaking Bad.

Numerous media outlets have since picked up on our Bryan Cranston as Lex Luthor story including Rolling Stone, Fox News, NBC News, ABC NewsUSA Today, NY Post, Eonline, TV Guide, and E! News.

E! News featured the story in a segment that aired last night on television following the Chelsea Lately Show, with the episode having replayed today at Noon ET.

The segment that Cosmic Book News gets featured on during E! News is their run-down in regards to true and false rumors and stories. When it came to our Bryan Cranston as Lex Luthor story, E! News stated they weren’t sure; that reps weren’t available, and that it has caused no backlash.

The same source has also told Cosmic Book News big plans are underway leading to the Justice League Movie, that both actors have signed multi-picture deals, and that Warner Bros. was extremely happy with Ben Affleck in talks regarding the Justice League.

Exclusive: Bryan Cranston Is Lex Luthor in Batman/Superman; Matt Damon Up For Aquaman; Mark Strong As Sinestro Possible

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:10446:]]

As Cosmic Book News previously was informed, Lex Luthor has been cast in the Man of Steel sequel that will feature Ben Affleck as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman.

Now we have been told a batch of new details, on top of why Affleck was chosen as Batman.

Bryan Cranston has been cast as Lex Luthor in what is said to be at least a six “appearance” deal (think of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury popping up in every Marvel movie in the run-up to Avengers) and may be as high as ten.

Look for the official announcement to follow the conclusion to the final season of Breaking Bad as WB wants to dovetail off the end of that.

Regarding Ben Affleck, we are told he has allegedly a 13-appearance deal for Batman.

DC is going to have all of their main characters liberally appearing or at least mentioned in all of their movies to portray a more connected world than what Marvel Studios has done so far.

DC also does have major interest in bringing Matt Damon into the Justice League now that Affleck is on board, and it is rumored that he is being considered for Aquaman or Martian Manhunter

Regarding Mark Strong playing Lex Luthor, the one thing that worked a bit against him was that he was already Sinestro —  and still could be again.

“Cranston truly is a dream casting for Luthor,” we’re told.

Bryan Cranston Wants To Play Lex Luthor In Batman Superman Man of Steel 2

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:10184:]]

Bryan Cranston achieved super stardom portraying Walter White in the hit TV series Breaking Bad, and now the actor says he is interested in tackling Lex Luthor for Zack Snyder’s Superman/Batman movie, sequel to Man of Steel.

“Give me a call,” he said, with Metro adding it was with a grin. “I like Lex Luthor. I think he’s misunderstood. He’s a loveable, sweet man,” Cranston offered. 

Cranston plays a chemistry teacher sticken by cancer turned crystal meth maker and cartel boss known as “Heisenberg” in a role that sees the character undergo extreme transformation from a loving husband and father to a major player in the drug scene due to his ability to create a pure form of the drug coupled with a keen intellect.

During previous seasons of Breaking Bad, many fans have pointed out that Cranston’s Walter White mirrors Lex Luthor with his shear ruthlessness and cunning smarts. Actually in an episode, Walter White is even described as looking like Lex (video below).

Bryan Cranston also has a starring role in the upcoming Godzilla 2014 movie where he plays another super smart character in the form of a scientist.

Mark Strong is also rumored for the role of Lex Luthor in Man of Steel 2, and a former Lex has expressed interest as well with Michael Rosenbaum.

Superman/Batman, the sequel to Man of Steel, goes into production next year for a 2015 release starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.

Watch Badger’s Breaking Bad Star Trek Idea In Animated Form! (Video)

Breaking Bad returned to AMC last night to complete its fifth and final season with Badger offering up his take on Star Trek.

In a scene at Jesse’s house, Badger went on to describe his Star Trek script featuring a pie eating contest between Kirk, Spock and Chekov.

For me personally, it brought up memories of Stand By Me, but Badger’s own pie eating contest is just as cool and gives as many laughs.

Now Badger’s Star Trek idea comes in animated form from Matt Czap (via Vulture).

Following Badger’s animated Star Trek script you can read how it came about below.

Badger’s Star Trek pitch (fact-checked by a Trek expert here) was dreamed up early in the writing of this last half of the season, when Gould and fellowBreaking Bad writer Gennifer Hutchison got into it over the true operational nature of the Trek transporter. The debate between Badger and Skinny Pete over how it works was lifted straight from their conversation. Gould, who said he was “a real Trekkie” as a kid, said he was the Skinny Pete in the argument: “I don’t want to go on a transporter because it’s essentially taking you apart and putting you back together. But Genni made a pretty good argument that that would mean there were literally 100 Captain Kirks.” He decided their debate (which no one won) was a natural way to get Gilligan’s gory lesson in transporter abuse on the show. “It would be the ultimate diet, really. Eat anything you want, and then Scotty beams it out of your stomach,” Gould said. “But like with great technology, there are terrible things that can go wrong.”
