Warner Animation announced that “ThunderCats” are set to return to the airwaves in 2011.

Characters Lion-O, Mumm-Ra, Panthro, Cheetara and others will spring off the screen with realistic cat-like characteristics inconceivable in previous incarnations.

The new, anime-inspired “ThunderCats”  combines swords and science. According to the news release, the show boasts ferocious battles with

the highest of stakes. The grand origin story of Prince Lion-O’s ascension to the throne – and of those who would thwart his destiny at any cost – takes on epic dimensions in this sharp new telling. As the forces of good and evil battle each other in the quest for the fabled Stones of Power, Lion-O and his champions learn valuable lessons of loyalty, honor and mortality in every episode.


McG (“Charlie’s Angels”) may direct the Wonder Woman David E. Kelley pilot that was recently picked up by NBC.  No word yet on who might star as the comic-book Amazon. Michael Ausiello at TVLine, reports that McG is a possibility for the show, though nothing is signed yet.

Matt and Kyle look at some of the recently revealed pictures of Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man and speculate what might be coming in the Marc Webb film.
