Villains

TV Guide sat down with Tim Kring after the finale and spoke about Volume 3 “Viillains” and said theres alot more to come…

Tim Kring had an exclusive interview with TV Guide discussing the Generations Finale (Powerless). Kring says that the fates of Niki and Nathan have not been decided and are up in the air, while Sylar (Zachary Quinto) will now return for Volume 3.

Initially Quinto was supposed to miss most of the Vol. 3 production because of his role in the new JJ Abrams Star Trek, but the writer’s strike delaying Vol. 3 allowed for the re-write to have Sylar return earlier than expected.

Additionally, Kring mentions that Vol. 3 will have a “legion” of villains that will possibly join forces against the Heroes.

Here are the details:

The fate of Nathan, who was shot during a TV press conference, and of Niki, who may have died in an abandoned building explosion, are “up in the air and will be determined when we come back after the strike,” Kring says. “Things are fairly dire for them both.” Immortal Adam was teleported by Hiro (Masi Oka) into a coffin buried in the same Japanese cemetery where his father Kaito (George Takei), who was slain by Adam, is also buried. “It’s poetic justice to have Adam end up in the same graveyard as Kaito,” Kring notes. “We’ve given the audience no reason to believe that Adam can figure a way to get out of there. The fact that he can live forever makes this the most gruesome of internments. If this happened to any of us, at least we’d know we’d soon have the mercy of death. Not here.”

Witchy, bitchy Elle, who wound up saving the lives of Mohinder (Sendhil Ramamurthy), Maya (Dania Ramirez) and little Molly (Adair Tishler), clearly sparked when Mohinder called her a hero. “Kristen Bell gave us the perfect reaction in that scene,” Kring says. “For a moment there, Elle sees she’s been given an opportunity to use her powers in a good way. And she absolutely likes the sound of that word ‘hero.'” Not to worry. There are plenty more baddies coming after the writers’ strike concludes. In fact, the title of Volume 3 — “Villains” — says it all.

“We’ve introduced a cadre of them over the course of the show and we’re going to see them rise up,” Kring says. “Just as the heroes have found each other to save the world, the villains will do the same with the opposite intent.” And their numbers may be legion. “The Company has catalogued many of these people over the years. There may be more of them down in that basement than we have alluded to so far.”

Will Sylar (Zachary Quinto) be their ringleader? After being electro-zapped by Elle, Mister Eyebrows escaped to a back alley and skeevily injected himself with Claire’s (Hayden Panettiere) blood. Then, in a wicked salute to Popeye, he telekinetically grabbed a can of spinach and said, “I’m back!”

“Sylar getting his power back does not bode well for our heroes,” says Kring, who admits there is one upside to the writers’ strike: Originally, Quinto was not going to be available for much of Volume 3 because of his commitment to the new Star Trek film. Now, with the strike dragging on, he’ll likely be done playing young Spock by the time Heroes returns to production.

Heroes Graphic Novel

Some More info on the Graphic Novel book has been released plus a bit of scoop of further Graphic Novels!…

The collection is published by the DC Comics imprint WildStorm and is available in two different covers by comics icons Jim Lee and Alex Ross. It also includes all of Tim Sale’s artwork from the series.

Season 2 graphic novels are now posting weekly at NBC.com/heroes, expanding the fan experience with plot scoops not seen on air. This week’s novel looks at a future where the Shanti virus has swept across America and features Howard Lemay (a new character introduced in last night’s episode, played by Mark Harelik), who is seeking sanctuary with his family at a quarantine site.

Later this month, watch for details on DL’s heroic — but tragic — career as a fireman trainee (Nov. 12), a flashback about young West and his “bagging and tagging” by HRG (Nov. 19), and even heroes doing their thing during the Revolutionary War (Nov. 26)!

“There still are more stories to tell, that we wanted to tell but couldn’t given the [TV] medium,” notes Oka in his intro. “Fortunately, we can share and expand through a different medium.”

Finale is Ready… by Damien

Heroes’ second season may be coming to a close a lot sooner than expected due to the forthcoming apocalypse, also known in some circles as the damn writers’ strike.

Sources confirm that the show is going back and shooting an alternate ending to the Dec. 3 episode that, if used, would allow the episode to function as a season finale in the event of a strike. Originally, the episode was only supposed to serve as the conclusion of the current “Generations” arc. Should an 11th-hour agreement be reached and a strike averted (fingers crossed!), the alt ending would likely be scrapped.

Question: Does Mama Petrelli on Heroes have a superpower?— Amanda

Ausiello: She certainly does. And it’s very similar to a power possessed by another hero, only in her case, it takes a lot less effort to get from Point A to Point B.
