There's some definite shuffling going on at Marvel recently. Earlier, we learned that Edgar Wright was exiting the anticipated Ant-Man feature film, and now comes word that Drew Goddard has stepped down as showrunner from Netflix's Daredevil series.
I doubt I'm alone in hoping for good news for Steven S. DeKnight's sci-fi project Incursion. With Spartacus: War of the Damned wrapped up, those of us who enjoyed DeKnight's creative and dramatic take on the gladiator's story are surely eager to see what the writer does next. We learned last year that Incursion was in the works, and the latest update is that the writers room is closing up shop on the project, but from the sound of it, that's not actually bad news.
Spartacus: War of the Damned premieres this Friday, marking the start of the final season of the popular Starz historical-fantasy drama series. Creator Steven S. DeKnight and stars Liam McIntyre (Spartacus), Todd Lasance (Caesar) and Cynthia Addai-Robinson were kind enough to speak to the press on a conference call to talk to us about the final season. Check out the lengthy but entertaining and informative conversation ahead.
More than a year ago, we saw the trailer for a documentary in the works that focuses on the well known showrunners of some of the more popular series in recent history. The film is almost complete and still seeking funding, and now it has a new trailer, which features appearances by Joss Whedon, Steven S. DeKnight and Bill Prady, among others.
With Spartacus drawing to a close with its upcoming final season Spartacus: War of the Damned set to premiere on Starz in January, we're left to wonder what series creator Steven DeKnight will do next. Starz answered that question when they recently announced that DeKnight has a new sci-fi project in development called Incursion. We spoke with him about it on Friday when we had the opportunity to sit with him to discuss Spartacus at Comic Con and he had some interesting details to share on what they have in mind for the series.
With Starz' drama series Spartacus headed into its final season, the question likely to be on many fans' minds is, what will series creator Steven S. DeKnight do next? Starz has answered that question by announcing two projects in development, one of which involves DeKnight and what appears to be a genre shift. From Spartacus to space? That's the plan...
What a bittersweet way to start the week. While we still have months and months to wait for the return of Spartacus for its third season, the series' fourth installment now has a title! And it's a good one. Following last season's Spartacus: Vengeance, is Season 3, officially titled (drumroll please): Spartacus: War of the Damned. Pretty ominous sounding! The title is the sweet news. The bitter part is that War of the Damned will be the conclusion of the saga. Say it aint so!
When Spartacus creator Steven DeKnight spoke with the press last month, following the season finale of Starz’ Spartacus: Vengeance, he mentioned the addition of three new female characters who’d be introduced to the series in the third season, but he wouldn’t reveal any details beyond that. We may have our first clue as to one of them.
Earlier this week, we shared some of the highlights of an interview Spartacus creator Steven DeKnight did with the press following last Friday’s excellent Vengeance season finale. Today, as promised, we have the full transcript of the conference call. Be warned, not only does it contain some Spartacus Season 3 spoilers, but it’s also quite lengthy.
If you aren’t caught up on Spartacus: Vengeance, there are major spoilers from the finale mentioned, so stop reading now!

Series creator Steven DeKnight spoke to the press today about the finale and what’s ahead for Season 3.
With the premiere of Spartacus: Vengeance just a couple of weeks away (two, if you’re keeping count), series show-runner Steven S. DeKnight talked to the press about the upcoming season this week. Topics of discussion on the conference call included the “new” Spartacus, played by Liam McIntyre, what to expect from some of the characters, and DeKnight’s thoughts on going from working on shows like Smallville and Joss Whedon’s series (Buffy, Angel and Dollhouse) to the Starz drama.
Starz continues to prove itself to be a network willing to take chances on projects and talent. Party Down is a fine example of that, as is the Spartacus series. Proving that they also know when they have something really good on their hands, the network announced today that they’ve signed an overall deal with Spartacus Co-creator/Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight.
Earlier today, we shared some photos of Liam McIntyre as Spartacus in the Starz gladiator drama series, which is set to return for it’s second (sort of ) season in January. Now there’s some interesting news and a clarification on a "kickass" female character set to be introduced in Spartacus: Vengeance
