AMC'S PREACHER: SEASON 4

AMC has released the first images from Season 4 of Preacher, which premieres on Sunday, August 4.

Here's how AMC describes the season:

"Preacher stars Dominic Cooper, Academy Award nominee Ruth Negga and Joseph Gilgun, along with series regulars Ian Colletti, Graham McTavish, Pip Torrens, Julie Ann Emery, and Noah Taylor. As the series inches closer to the finale, God's endgame for the universe begins to click into place. Trapped between heavenly prophecies, hellish prisons, and all-out nuclear war, Jesse, Tulip, and Cassidy make their bloody way to the Most High. Whether they can reach God in time -- or whether all this carnage is part of His divine plan -- will soon be revealed as Preacher barrels towards the end of the world. "

The Sony Pictures Television-AMC Studios co-production is developed for television by executive producer and showrunner Sam Catlin and executive producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.



ABC'S STUMPTOWN

Cobie Smulders, who played Maria Hill in the Avengers movies, is returning to her comic-book roots in Stumptown, which has been picked up as a series by ABC.

To watch a trailer for the show, CLICK HERE.

Here's how the network describes the show:

"Stumptown follows Dex Parios (Smulders) -- a strong, assertive and sharp-witted army veteran with a complicated love life, gambling debt and a brother to take care of in Portland, Oregon. Her military intelligence skills make her a great PI, but her unapologetic style puts her in the firing line of hardcore criminals and not quite in alliance with the police."

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. had previously been announced for renewal.





MARVEL COMICS' HOUSE OF X/POWERS OF X

Marvel Comics has revealed a first look to Jonathan Hickman's upcoming series, House of X and Powers of X.

Beginning this July through September, all the current X-titles will come to an end as Hickman reshapes the mutant world forever starting with House of X and Powers of X.

"We needed to sell the idea that this is what we're going to be doing for the next few years," Hickman said. "We wanted to be clear to the fans, to the stores, and just as importantly, to the creators who are going to be staffing these books in the future. We wanted the message to be very clear: This is a whole new era for the X-Men. This is what we're doing now."

Readers will see that the X-universe has been dovetailing to this new era, which will build from every major X-Men milestone since 1963 up through all of todayfs fan-favorite X-Men series.

Following House of X and Powers of X, a new X-universe will emerge, with Hickman leading the first phase with an ongoing flagship X-Men book alongside multiple new series and creative teams.

"Some [books] will be traditional fare, some carry through on ideas presented in HOX and POX. Some books are completely new concepts," Hickman said.

According to Marvel, more details about these books will be revealed at Comic-Con International in San Diego in July.

"House of X, is a story about a pivotal month in the history of the X-Men where everything changes for mutants on Earth. And the other, Powers of X, is a story about the history of mutants in the Marvel Universe," Hickman said.

Each series will be released on an alternate weekly schedule, starting with House of X, followed by Powers of X.
