Image
This year's Arrowverse crossover will be a bit smaller than usual. The event will introduce Ruby Rose's Batwoman into the universe, with plans to spin her off into her own series. The three core shows - Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl - will be involved, while Legends of Tomorrowwon't take any part. Now, we know when the crossover will air.

The CW has announced that the Batwoman crossover will begin on Sunday, December 9th at 8 PM EST with a new episode of The Flash. This will be followed by Arrow on Monday, December 10th at 8 PM EST, before concluding with Supergirl on Tuesday, December 11th at 8 PM EST. Supergirl is usually scheduled for Sunday nights this season, with Flash on Tuesdays. But for this event, they're swapping them around.

Below, you can take a look at key art for the crossover, which features a new look at the new Flash suit. Stay tuned for more as we have it.

Marvel's RUNAWAYS Will Show MCU Connections in Season 2

Image
The Runaways will be returning for a second season on Hulu December 21st. The series has always felt like its own standalone story. So much so, you'd never know that it was set in the same world as Thor: Ragnarok or Avengers: Infinity War. Well, after the events of the first season, we will finally see that connection.

During a set visit earlier this month, showrunners Josh Schwartz and Samantha Savage talked about referencing the larger MCU in the second season. We'll have a reference, late in the season, that will probably be our first real breadcrumb that connects us to the MCU in some way, said Savage.Will it reference the events of the first Avengers film like the Netflix shows or will it reference more current events like Wakanda going public or the snap from Avengers: Infinity War? We likely won't know until the show's release on December 21st.

We also have a few more details on season 2. We'll be spoiling events from the first season so if you haven't …

DCTV News Bits: TITANS Casts Dove (Again), Bane's Dad Comes to GOTHAM, and ARROW Gets Gritty

Image
Today we've got some news on Titans casting, Gotham using yet another Batman villain, and Arrow doing even more crazy stunts. There's a lot to unpack so let's get into it.

According to our friends at Super Bro Movies, Elliot Knight (Life Sentence) has been cast as Don Hall on Titans. Knight will appear in flashbacks as the original Dove. Don Hall and Hank Hall (Alan Ritchson) are brothers and the original Hawk and Dove. It'll be interesting to see how they use the flashbacks to flesh out Ritchson's character. Minka Kellyis playing the present day Dove. Hopefully we get to see the backstory behind all of this.

Gotham is going all out for its final season. That Hashtag Show is reporting that Bane's father will make an appearance next season. They are casting a character by the name of  Eduardo Dorrance who is the father of Bane. They want Dorrance to be in his mid 30s to early 40s. What role will he play in the final season? We don't know yet but it's cer…

Movie News Bits: A Little Bit of Everything

Image
Welcome to the latest round of Movie News Bits. Today, we have some updates on a couple Marvel-based movies, a DC movie update, and some tidbits on the animation front.

It was recently revealed that a new Supergirl movie is in the works at Warner Bros. and DC Films. Now, we know what type of director they're looking for. Unsurprisingly, the studio is keen on hiring a female filmmaker to tackle this project. This comes after Ava DuVernay on New Gods, Cathy Yan on Birds of Prey, and Patty Jenkins on the Wonder Woman franchise. The studio is also developing Batgirl, but that doesn't have a director. Needless to say, it looks like WB/DC are emphasizing on women to boost the franchise. (Source: Deadline)Marvel has been very quiet on plans for its post-Avengers 4 slate, but now, we know when one movie will begin shooting. A new report says that Marvel is planning to start filming a new movie in June 2019 in the United Kingdom. The three options are said to be Black Widow,Doctor Stra…

DEADPOOL 2 Concept Art Reveals Scrapped Appearance From...The Fantastic Four?

Image
When Deadpool 2 first entered development, director Tim Miller was set to return after the first film's massive success. However, he eventually left the project due to creative differences. David Leitch later replaced him. Not too much has been known about how Miller's version differs from what we got, but it turns out he planned on including Marvel's First Family.

Concept artist Alexander Lozano has been posting his artwork from Miller's Deadpool 2 on social media. They mostly include alternative designs for characters like Cable and Juggernaut. But most significantly, he worked on designs for the Fantastic Four. Not just any Fantastic Four, either.

Apparently, Miller wanted the cast of 2015's Fantastic Four to return for Deadpool 2. Their exact roles are unknown, but it's easy to imagine Deadpool making fun of the film's colossal failure in classic fourth-wall breaking. Lozano's designs are more comic-accurate, and Miller seemed especially interested…

FEATURE: 5 Things We Want to See in AVENGERS 4 (And 5 Things We Don't)

Image
There are few movies that are more anticipated than Avengers 4, especially after the universe-shaking events of Infinity War. The film will serve as both an ending and a new beginning for the Marvel Cinematic Universe; it will provide a conclusion for the current story, while laying the groundwork down for future films.

Marvel has been super vague on what will happen in Avengers 4, for very good reason. In fact, we don't even know the title of the movie yet. Unsurprisingly, that hasn't stopped fans from speculating and theorizing what will happen. Here, we'll list five things that we want to see in the film, and five things that we don't.

By the way, we'll be going into SPOILERS for Infinity War, so if you haven't seen the movie yet for some reason, you may want to stop right here.

HBO Orders WATCHMEN to Series, Sets 2019 Premiere

Image
After years in development, HBO's Watchmen pilot finally went into production a few months ago. Now, we know when the pilot - and the rest of the season - will premiere.

HBO has confirmed that Watchmen has been given a full series order. It will premiere sometime in 2019. No word on an episode count yet. In addition, the network released a plot logline from the series.

Set in an alternate history where “superheroes" are treated as outlaws, Watchmen embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own.

Showrunner Damon Lindelof previously described Watchmen as an original "remix" of the source material. It's not another direct adaptation; rather, it's an original story that will be set after the comic. So, it's basically a sequel, but they're not calling it that.

VENOM Might Be Projected To Shatter Box Office Records, But Did Sony Make The Right Call?

Image
As of now, Sony's Venomis projected to shatter October's box office records with a $65-$85 million  opening weekend (Source: BoxOfficePro). One must remember since Venom still has less than two months to go before it hits theaters, the numbers will most definitely change. Most likely in Sony's favor. This may sound great, but the real test is when the reviews hit the internet. If this movie can garner favorable reviews, then Venom's staying power could make this a much needed win for Sony. We'll have to wait and see.

The bigger question you should be asking yourself: Are you happy that it's going to be rated PG-13? Also, by the look of an earlier trailer, there was no doubt that Sony was aiming for an R-rating, and as a writer, one must think of the ramifications this could possibly have on the final product. Changing things at the last minute could be a recipe for disaster.


But also having a brain, it's hard to argue with Sony's decision. This gives V…

Review: RISE OF THE TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES - Mystic Mayhem

Image
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are back! Now that their amazing series on Nickelodeon has ended, they are returning in an all-new take on the franchise. Does it live up to its predecessor? Or does fall in the endless sea of bad reboots? Well, let's take a look at the show's first episode.

The first major change is that the show went from 3D animation back to 2D animation. The character designs are closer to the look of the films, and now Raphael is the leader of the group (transformed from the norm by the nuclear goop). The series is going back to a more comedic take on the Turtles. After the last two series' were more action an and plot focused, this show is going in the opposite direction. Think more like Teen Titans Go! with an actual focus on action.

The plot of the first episode is incredibly simple. The Turtles and April find and alien cat-like creature and want to keep it. Only for it to be taken by aliens. They have to travel to Dimension X another world to save…
