Happy Thursday, Shadowhunters. How’s your day going? If it’s going well you might not want to hear about these latest rumors from the Shadowhunters television show. It doesn’t sound encouraging.
According to Spoiler TV, production on Shadowhunters has been pushed back from May to late June. That’s not the concern. The production delay most likely is related to scheduling conflicts and such.
But the real concern lies in these new teasers from the pilot script (thank you Spoiler TV), including a highly disturbing teaser about Jace and more information about this Natalie girl that no one cares about.
– An early scene see’s Simon and Clary at Java Jones. They’re watching the news about a ‘Demonic Killer’ who has killed 7 people.
– Natalie carries Yeti in her backpack. She’s described as a bit possessive and bohemian beautiful.
– Jace has a creep moment where he inscribes a rune on Clary’s upper thigh while she’s passed out.
– Steles are retained from the books.
– Seraph Blades are retained from the books.
“Jace has a creep moment.” Wow that’s just fantastic. Because nothing says sexy leading man like a rapist. Because “inscribes a rune on Clary’s upper thigh while she’s passed out” isn’t just a creep moment, it’s rapey.
This better be a rumor. A horrible rumor. Because Jace is not a rapist. There’s no way that anyone would condone something as inappropriate and rapey as what Jace is said to do to Clary. I can’t say this enough, but this better be a rumor because it’s just all kinds of wrong.
Do those in charge need a reminder of what kind of character Jace is? He’s charming, handsome, vulnerable, caring and funny. He uses that humor to deflect and make us care about him. It’s that multi-faceted and humorous personality of Jace’s that made us fall in love with him. It’s the personality that was missing in the film. Jace isn’t Jace without that humor. And this rapey Jace certainly isn’t Jace.
Can we instigate a #JaceIsNotARapist trend or something?
Because I am tired of all these negative rumors, let’s focus on the couple bits of positive rumors, which include the steles and seraph blades remaining a part of the story. Let’s hope that’s a sign that Ed Decter will remain faithful to the world of the Shadowhunters (but at this point my faith is wavering). It’s also nice to see that Java Jones is in there (with Clary and Simon sharing a scene there like in the book).
Also, Spoiler TV shared the full description of Shadowhunters:
Clary Fray is perfectly normal; she’s a budding art student who loves spending time with her friends and family. On her 18th birthday, however, Clary discovers she is part of an age-old battle between demons and an elite race of warriors known as Shadowhunters. When her mother is kidnapped and her home is destroyed, so is her sense of reality. Clary must now understand her new role in an ancient battle, and come to terms with her family’s past.
Shadowhunters will air on ABC Family with production set to begin, according to Spoiler TV, now in late June in Vancouver.
