RZA Directing Iron Fist, SAG Awards Winners, and More TV News

The weekend has come and gone, and it’s time to get back in the swing of things. And by things, I mean work. But distractions are okay and even encouraged. Dive into today’s TV-Cap to learn about the RZA directing an episode of Iron Fist, to see some CGI magic from A Series of Unfortunate Events, to get a highlights reel of Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards winners, and more.

The RZA and Marvel. Finn Jones recently talked to Extra on Facebook Live and took questions from fans, and while doing so, he talked about Danny Rand’s playlist and revealed the director of the sixth episode of the Netflix Marvel series: the RZA. Yep. He said, “Actually one of our episodes was directed by the RZA himself. Episode six. So yeah there’s a very close tie with hip hop and the Iron Fist series.” Hear it directly from Jones in the above video at about 4:22 and stay tuned to listen to him discuss working with the RZA.

Awww! This one’s for you, Mystic Falls enthusiasts. Nina Dobrev recently announced she’ll be reprising her role of Elena Gilbert in the series finale of The Vampire Diaries, and she’s apparently working on filming it now. Series executive producer Kevin Williamson shared the above photo of himself, Dobrev, and Paul Wesley. It’s bittersweet. [TVLine]

Back to Hawkins. Is it time for season two of Stranger Things yet? I wish. The debut of the next round of the Netflix series isn’t happening anytime super soon. However, we know a little about what’s ahead. Learn everything we know about season two so far (and keep the page bookmarked because it will be updated with news whenever said news happens).

Martians Are Coming. The February 6 episode of Supergirl will see J’onn J’onzz face White Martians. Again. They try to kidnap M’gann, and he’s not having it. A poster teasing “The Martian Chronicles” makes it look like he’ll get assistance from Kara. Surely they’ll be strong enough to stop the White Martians, right? [CBR, Image: The CW]

You’re a Winner. The 23rd annual SAG Awards aired Sunday night, and I want to share a few of the television category winners with you. Stranger Things won Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series, Claire Foy and John Lithgow both took home acting awards for The Crown, Orange Is the New Black scored in Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, and Game of Thrones won Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Comedy or Drama Series. Get the full list of winners at People.

I Am the Brick. This isn’t exactly news, but it’s too fun not to share. Kyle Roberts used LEGO minifigs and toys to make a stop motion version of the intro for Batman: The Animated Series. I’m on board with a whole remake of the series in LEGO form.

Before and After. Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events went practical for their sprawling interior sets, but of course the series also featured some CGI. Zoic worked on enhancing the drama, and they’ve released a VFX reel showing before and afters. They worked on backgrounds, some creatures, and the baby among other things. [Nerdist]

Different Zombies. Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet is about two married realtors in southern California. I know. Not that strong of a hook. But, the catch is that the wife becomes a zombie. How does the twist work? Victoria has a review of the series that debuts February 3 right this way.

Are you planning to watch Santa Clarita Diet? Head to the comments and tell me your thoughts on that or anything else from today’s TV-Cap.
