Batman's Absence in the Arrowverse Explained in "Elseworlds" Crossover

Image
For the longest time, fans of The CW have had one question: Where is Batman? The shows have vaguely referenced the character off and on. Last season, Arrow namedropped Bruce Wayne directly, while this year's "Elseworlds" crossover will introduce Gotham City and Batwoman, who is also getting her own series. But despite all this, The CW has no plans for an actual Batman appearance.

Fortunately, though, Bat-fans will get the next best thing in "Elseworlds." The shows' producers have confirmed that the event will address the whereabouts of Batman, revealing his place in the Arrowverse.

Apparently, Batman has been missing for a few years. This had led to a huge decline in Gotham, which is essentially a failed city overrun by crime. It is the "worst case scenario," especially in comparison to cities like Star City.

Producer Caroline Dries, who is developing the Batwoman series and consulted on the crossover, had this to say to Entertainment Weekly. &qu…

Check Out The Final Trailer For AQUAMAN

Image
Another trailer for Aquaman has arrived through the bottle post of the endless ocean. While there isn't a ton of new footage in this trailer, we do get some glimpses of Willem Dafoe and his character of Nuidis Volko. Can I also point out that the classic suit looks far better than expected? Anyway, December 21st is hopefully here sooner rather than later.


From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, Aquaman, starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime — one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.

Aquaman swims into theaters December, 21st.

First Trailer for ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL

Image
I think we all got so confused that we forgot our chimichangas in the microwave only to find them two days later when 20th Century Fox announced that a PG-13 version of Deadpool 2 was going to be released this December. At first, some people (myself included) thought it was an out of season April Fool's joke, but it turns out that it was real.  However, if you still need proof, Fox has now released the teaser trailer for the PG-13 version, which is called Once Upon a Deadpool.

The focus on the trailer is the interaction between Deadpool and the actor Fred Savage, playing himself. Check it out below.



 The movie arrives on December 12th in theaters and will end its run on December 24th. Stay tuned for our review here on WOBAM Entertainment, and make sure you're following us on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook, @WOBAMEnt for more details as we have them.

SUPERGIRL Casts Jon Cryer as Lex Luthor for Season 4

Image
Last month, it was announced that Lex Luthor is finally making his Arrowverse debut on Supergirl later this season. Now, the character has been cast, and the actor has quite the role in Luthor history.

It has been announced that Jon Cryer (Two and a Half Men) is set to play Lex Luthor. He will first appear on Supergirl in episode 15 of this season, and from there, he will be a recurring character. Funnily enough, Cryer previously played Lenny Luthor - aka Lex's nephew - in 1987's Superman IV: The Quest for Peace. And now, he has ascended to the role of Lex himself.

Producers Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller gave the following statement on Cryer's casting. "We are enormous fans of Jon Cryer, and he was instantly our dream actor to play the iconic role of Lex Luthor. Jon is a super-talent, and the fact that he played Lenny Luthor in Superman IV brings an added layer of legacy to his casting. We’re beyond thrilled to welcome Jon to the Supergirl family."

AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Already Renewed for Season 7

Image
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. won't be back for its season six premiere until next summer, but the Marvel series is already confirmed to live on beyond that.

ABC has announced that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will return for a seventh season. Despite the show's consistently low ratings, ABC has shown confidence in its creative direction. It is also an opportunity to push the Marvel brand on a weekly basis. No premiere date for season seven has been confirmed yet, but expect it to begin sometime in 2020.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. ended its fifth season this year on a major cliffhanger, leaving the fates of two lead characters in the balance. It will be interesting to see how the next two seasons continue the story, especially with Avengers 4 expected to drastically change the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Stay tuned for more news as we have it.

Review: POKKEN TOURNAMENT DX

Image
Let’s finish off this Pokemon Week with yet another spin-off title. This time, it's Pokken Tournament. Pokken was first released back in 2015 for Wii U, with an “expansion pack” of the game going by the name of Pokken Tournament DX releasing in September last year. It’s the Expansion pack for Nintendo Switch that I’m reviewing today.

The game is a 3D fighter in the style of Namco Bandai's usual style for their fighting games. Have you played games like Naruto Shippuden Ninja Storm, Soul Calibur or Tekken, I can’t see you have a problem to get into this game. The game works smoothly and is easy to understand. For any new potential player reading this, I recommend you to start with Pikachu. The electric mouse is the easiest to start with out of all the 21 Pokemon (23 if you count DLC).

Pokken Tournament, no matter what version you purchase, is a game best suited for multiplayer. Yes, there is a single player mode such as “story mode,” which is only online play and tournaments wit…

Opinion: Why POKEMON STADIUM Needs to Return

Image
I can imagine some reactions right now. Going from being confused, horrified or downright shocked. Getting nightmares from the days of old on how a simple random trailer could be so horrifying because you were afraid that a gamble you took would fail miserably.

For you that wonder what I’m talking about, let me give you some context. On August 1, 1999, Pokemon Stadium was released in Japan, with a western release one year later. While there isn't a story to follow or Pokemon to catch, there is still the access to defeat gym leaders and different types of tournaments. You also have the chance to play some small variety of mini-games or play free battles again your friends or computer. The way you had access to Pokemon was to either pre-build Pokemon that the game gave you to use or your Pokemon from a Gameboy color game if you connected them via a transfer pack. One year later, a sequel was released, which pretty much is the same game but with the access to generation two Pokemon an…
