Ryan Coogler Working On Wakanda TV Series

The Walt Disney Company announced a new series that will be based on the kingdom of Wakanda coming exclusively to Disney+ with the director of Black Panther, Ryan Coogler. Ryan Coogler on behalf of Proximity Media had this to say:

“It’s an honor to be partnering with The Walt Disney Company. Working with them on Black Panther was a dream come true. As avid consumers of television, we couldn’t be happier to be launching our television business with Bob Iger, Dana Walden and all the amazing studios under the Disney umbrella. We look forward to learning, growing, and building a relationship with audiences all over the world through the Disney platforms. We are especially excited that we will be taking our first leap with Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso and their partners at Marvel Studios where we will be working closely with them on select MCU shows for Disney+. We’re already in the mix on some projects that we can’t wait to share”.

Many of us are still battling with the recent loss of the iconic Chadwick Boseman last year. Some want to see the Black Panther legacy retired, others want to see it continued and some are conflicted. Regardless of what happens next, I think it’s safe to say that we can rest assured to know that the series in safe hands with Ryan Coogler.

Prehistoric and gigantic monsters roam the lands with death around every corner.

A shipwrecked crew stuck on this island will be an interesting tale as we can expect to see a majority of the crew members to not make it out alive. No telling if we will see Kong but the teaser of the word “king” hints at some possibilities. No pictures or cast attached as of yet but check back here for updates!

Top 10 Most Anticipated Movies / TV Series 2021

It’s that time of the year again! The time for New Years resolutions, the time for listing how many things we’re “leaving behind” AND most importantly listing the things that we anticipate the most about bringing in the new year. Many of us are excited to leave 2020 in the rear view, so with that being said let’s discuss what exactly it is that we’re looking forward to!

10. Zack Snyder Justice League

Zack Snyder never got to see his vision for the cinematic universe of DC comics come to fruition so it’s a breath of fresh air to finally see that we’re getting at least a glimpse into what he had in store for his take on DC’s world of heroes. His cut includes every scene that was removed from the initial release, mainly the African American actors (which includes Cyborg’s backstory as well as scenes featuring Iris West). Here’s to hoping that what Zack had in store was a lot better than what we got to see in theaters a few years back. Even if it’s not, I’m sure the fans will be happy that they got to see his vision and will more than likely stand by him.

9. Wandavision

(MINOR SPOILERS FOR AVENGERS ENDGAME) The illusive Wandavision project has been teased for a very long time as fans have been waiting for answers as to whether or not this would propel us into the big plot points of next phase of Marvel projects. Scarlet Witch’s true power from the comics has yet to be fully displayed in the cinematic universe so many were speculating that this would tease her reality bending abilities. These speculations came from the trailer showing Vision alive and fully well. By the time of this article’s release, Wandavision has already hit Disney +.

8. A Quiet Place II

A Quiet Place was a very unique and well acclaimed horror movie that came out in 2018. It relied on the use (and lack of) sound to make audiences sense the dread and tension that the characters on screen did. One of their actress’, Millicent Simmonds, is a deaf teen actress that played a deaf character which made the use of sign language throughout the film feel authentic. The sequel looks to show more of the world and hopefully explain dive into how it all started.

7. Spiral (Saw)

Spiral was an unexpected surprise. Starring Chris Rock and Samuel L. Jackson, this film sees the detectives solving murders that are reminiscent to the Jigsaw killer. The trailer looks to be grounded, dark and gritty. Here’s to hoping we get a new sage from this universe that won’t be milked.

6. Candyman

This upcoming horror movie is anticipated by many. Produced by Jordan Peele and directed by Nia DaCosta, this film looks to bring back the iconic horror movie villain. The trailer already captures the atmosphere and puts a spooky spin on the Destiny Child’s classic, “Say my name” song. Expect to see this in August.

5. Judas and the Black Messiahs

This movie revolves around the late revolutionary figure, Fred Hampton (played by Daniel Kaluuya). It will follow his life leading up to his tragic murder by the FBI. Hampton accomplished a lot in the 21 years he spent here, he was the leading chairman of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther party. Lakeith Stanfield also stars, so expectations are raised.

4. The Batman

Matt Reeves’ upcoming film, The Batman, stars Robert Pattinson as the titular vigilante. This film looks to keep the dark tone alive in the city of Gotham with a seemingly younger Bruce Wayne. As of now it’s understood that this “version” of Batman is a separate version from the one we saw in Zack Snyder’s films. Regardless, this movie looks promising for the fact that the teased fight scene shows a very brutal and angry Batman as well as a more menacing take on the Riddler.

3. Mortal Kombat

We’re finally getting a new live action Mortal Kombat full length film. Since the last iteration (MK Annihilation), we’ve been waiting for a new film that would do the series justice. This film looks more brutal, bloodier and grounded than the original two movies. Sub Zero, Scorpion, Mileena, Sonya Jax, Kung Lao, Liu Kang, Raiden, Kibal and Nitara will all show up in this film (along with a new character, Cole Young). Expect to see this on HBO Max & theaters in April.

2. Ironheart

(MINOR SPOILERS FOR AVENGERS ENDGAME) Ironheart will be taking up the mantle and legacy left behind by Tony Stark. Not much is know about this project but the actress, Dominique Thorne, will be playing this iconic character. Expect to see her crossover in other projects and with the upcoming Ms. Marvel project, we may even see a mcu version of the young Avengers. It appears that we will be getting more leading female superheroes instead of it being far and few between which is a nice addition to this universe.

  1. Static Shock

Nothing much is known about this project except that Michael B. Jordan’s production company, Outlier Society, will be producing it. Static has been long overdue for a comeback regardless of the media in which it is. Fans are excited and we here at Hero Network are too!

Mortal Kombat 2021 Movie Images

The upcoming Mortal Kombat (2021) movie has finally revealed images showcasing its cast and characters. Sonya Blade, Sub Zero, Scorpion, Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Jax and Kano were shown. We also got a view at Lewis Tan’s mysterious character, Cole Young.

In this movie, the Sub Zero will be, Bi-Han, who is the older brother of the traditional Sub Zero, Kui Liang. Since Kui Liang will likely not show up in this movie, hopefully we’ll get to see him in the next movie. If that’s the case then we will potentially see Noob Saibot, Lin Kuei and maybe the cyborg initiative as Kui Liang is at the center of those three story arcs in the Mortal Kombat mythos.

The movie will be a lot more bloodier than the previous films and also have more fatalities. The images makes the fighting look more gritty, grounded and dirty. Scroll below to view the images and let us know your thoughts!

Tenchu Creator Has Interest In New Game Playstation 5

In an interview with Weekly Famitsu the creator of Tenchu, Takuma Endo, said he has interest in making a game for next generation consoles. Endo also acknowledged the difficulty of such task as the IP is owned by FromSoftware (developer of Dark Souls / Bloodborne).

FromSoftware already has their hands full with plenty of IPs and with the already announced Elden Ring game, who knows how soon we will see a revival of Tenchu. FromSoftware’s 2019 critically acclaimed game Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice was initially supposed to be a spiritual successor to Tenchu; meaning not all hope is lost.

God of War in First Person

The 8 minute video showcases different cutscenes from the perspective of Atreus, Kratos and even Mimir.
