So welcome back to another edition of Before They Were ‘Gods’, where we pull back the curtain on some of the past projects of the cast and crew connected with American Gods and give them their proper due. Since we’re still a little while off from any major Season 2 news, it’s a little something […]
Even with Starz’s American Gods wrapping-up its highly-watched and critically-acclaimed first season only a few weeks ago and Emmy buzz around the series continuing to grow, co-creators and showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green are already at work on the show’s ten-episode second season (expected to premiere in mid-2018). But even in the midst of […]
So Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane) and Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) are having to speed-up their road trip a little bit…but then again, you’d think that killing a god who betrayed you with the very sword he made you as new gods are breathing down your neck would necessitate a change-in-plans. Meanwhile…back at the taxi…Mad Sweeney […]
So stop me if you’ve heard this one before: a leprechaun, a dead woman and a man with a cab looking for his Jinn walk into a bar…and now find their way heading to House-on-the-Rock, Wisconsin. Okay, that might suck as a joke but it pretty much sums-up where Mad Sweeney (Pablo Schreiber), Laura Moon […]
As STARZ‘s American Gods marches onward towards an inevitable “war of the gods” (possibly) and the show’s season finale (definitely, as STARZ announced the show’s renewal for a Season 2 a few weeks back), we get a brief break in the action this week with “Prayer for Mad Sweeney,” with Emily Browning (Laura Moon) also starring […]
In Fox’s Logan, in theaters now, viewers learn through exposition in the movie that something terrible happened to The X-Men, and that Patrick Stewart’s Charles Xavier was probably responsible for it. In the film, Xavier suffers from a degenerative brain disease that causes seizures which project a terrible psychic attack on everyone in a large […]
Back in August, actor Corbin Bernsen was announced as securing the role of Vulcan in the Starz TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods. Though we know that Vulcan is the Roman god of fire, including volcanoes and metalworking, the character did not appear in Gaiman’s 2001 novel, so it was unclear how he would […]

Deadwood‘s Ian McShane will play Mr. Wednesday in Starz‘s upcoming adaptation of Neil Gaiman‘s American Gods. The series, executive produced and written by Bryan Fuller and Michael Green, tells the tale of the brewing war between the gods of mythology and the newer gods of technological progress.

In an interview with Crave, American Gods executive producer Bryan Fuller offered a few insights into his expansion of the novel, expected to air on Starz in 2017.

Two days ago, Bleeding Cool ran a story about DC Entertainment pitching a Supergirl series to TV Networks, following on from Gotham, Flash, Constantine and iZombie creating a Golden Age of DC Comics live action adaptations. We’d also heard that Michael Green, one of the writers who relaunched Supergirl as a comic book in the […]
Michael Green is a producer on TV shows including Gotham, American Gods, Smallville, and Heroes, writer on Smallville, Heroes, Gotham, and films such as Green Lantern and the upcoming Flash. So, you know, he has form. He also worked with Mike Johnson on the New 52 reboot of Supergirl. Well, we understand Green is now taking […]
I wonder if this means the other half of the rumour, about the film leading us right up to the beginning of Alien, will also pan out? Maybe the gossipeers just made a lucky guess.
