ABC announces a new ‘Bachelor’ and fans have never been so confused

TwitterFacebook

Usually, when ABC chooses its next Bachelor, the highest odds are for a fan favorite from the previous Bachelorette season. All signs this year pointed to Peter Kraus, but the network threw a major curveball in the form of Arie Luyendyk Jr. 

Luyendyk was on The Bachelorette in 2012 — you know, when Mitt Romney ran for president and there was just one Avengers movie and the Red Wedding had only happened in books. The former Indy 500 driver has been working in real estate, and now he has a second chance with Bachelor nation — a fan base that isn’t exactly chuffed about his casting.

“We wouldn’t even be having this discussion at all,” Jackson said, if he weren’t a black man doubted for an encounter with a white woman. Read more…

Marvel’s Inhumans are ready for action.

ABC’s new superhero show has been touted as the first television series to debut in IMAX before hitting the broadcast airwaves. Which, in turn, raises the question: is this really worth the IMAX treatment? 

We’ll have to wait a few more weeks for a definitive answer to that one (Inhumans hits IMAX Sep. 1). But in the meantime, ABC’s trying like hell to convince potential fans that it is. 

To that end, they treated the Comic-Con audience to four lengthy clips, three of which featured very different types of action. Read more…
