The Witcher Season 2 Wraps Filming

More than a year later The Witcher’s second season has finally wrapped! Production started last year in February of 2020 but was delayed due to the pandemic / lockdown. Production resumed in August of the same year but had to be stopped around November after a few crew / cast members tested positive for Covid. Now here we are today in the month of April, a year later and production has finished! Last season was met with some mixed reviews. Fans appeared to love the series while critics were conflicted. Some didn’t understand the storytelling with different “timelines” and it felt like there was a disconnect between the critics and the lore. Still The Witcher does a great job at getting you invested into the world, the acting is incredible and the production design is great; definitely worth the watch (also the combat is A1!).

Justice League Variant Cover Reveals Martian Manhunter’s ‘SnyderVerse’ Look

Justice League #59 received different variant covers for the upcoming issue that tease Martian Manhunter’s look for the upcoming Snyder cut of Justice League. It was revealed that Harry Lennix portrayed an undercover, J’onn J’onzz in the Man of Steel and was unable to reprise his role due to scheduling conflicts during the filming of the original Justice League. Now with the recent reshoots, Lennix was able to be apart of the new scenes that were filmed so here’s hoping that we get to see a live action portrayal of the alien superhero.

Regarding the variant cover, we get an idea of how J’onzz will look. He has a lot more of an angular look than the rounded look many are familiar with from the cartoons. This look appears to be more comic inspired which is a welcomed surprise for many. Justice League #59 will be released on March 16 which is two days before the Snyder cut releases. Take a look at the cover below and let us know your thoughts!

Joker’s New Look Revealed In Snyder Cut

Today we finally got a full look at Jared Leto’s new look in the upcoming Snyder cut of the Justice League movie! We see a more gothic look in these black and white photographs. Joker’s hair is longer, he looks more gritty and less “bedazzled” than the joker we saw in the recent Suicide Squad movie.

Jared Leto has been in the middle of a rough career with this character. From the outside looking in, it looks as though he dedicated a lot of his time towards bringing this character to life only to not have seen the fruits of that labor. A lot of his scenes were cut from the Suicide Squad movie, fans were disappointed with the direction of the character and the joker movie that got praised was from a completely different actor. It’s no wonder Leto jumped ship to marvel and played a different “villain” in the character of Morbius.

Only time will tell if Leto’s portrayal will be worth the wait but based on these images as well as the recent news that the Snyder cut will be R rated, shows that we will be in for a dark / grounded DC movie. Hopefully we all get what we’ve been waiting for and hopefully the success of this movie will cause a continuation of this timeline as well as more creative control for the directors. Only time will tell!

MCU Blade Film Gets Watchmen Writer

Marvel has found a writer for its upcoming Blade film that will be staring the Oscar winning Mahershala Ali. Stacy Osei-Kuffour, will be the writer for the film. Osei-Kuffour wrote on HBO’s Watchmen series as a co-writer for Episode 7 and a story editor on all other episodes.

She also wrote Amazon’s Hunters, HBO’s Run and is set to write for the upcoming television movie adaptation of the science fiction novel Binti; which stars a young girl named Binti who is a Himba tribe member that gets recruited into a prestigious intergalactic University. The school is then taken hostage by an alien race called the Meduse and almost every member on board is killed. Binti must figure out a way to survive the hostile Meduse and prevent further bloodshed.

There was reports on a six-month search in which black writers were considered, (including direct input from the lead star, Mahershala Ali) resulting in Ossei-Kuffour becoming the film’s writer. She will be Marvel’s first black woman to write a Marvel movie. This upcoming movie will not continue the Wesley Snipes trilogy and will serve as a reboot.

Justice League Zack Snyder Confirms “Knightmare” Batman

Zack Snyder dropped another teaser for his much anticipated cut of the Justice League movie. The tease in topic is Ben Affleck’s Batman donning his “Knightmare” attire (trench coat, cowl, goggles, etc). He also confirmed that this was taken during his recent reshoots which in total wasn’t a large amount of new footage but there are about 150 minutes of unseen footage that we haven’t seen (this is assumed to have been previously recorded before his departure).

Fans may notice that the Knightmare scene was teased in Batman V Superman during Bruce’s nightmare where he saw a post apocalyptic world where in which Superman became corrupt and Darkseid’s army has swarmed the world. The nightmare ends with Flash coming back from the future trying to warn Bruce that he was “always right about him”. Zack said this was meant to set up Justice League which is why many were disappointed to see it not pan out in Joss Whedon’s cut of the movie as it had set the bar for something that fans had wanted to see.

War Machine’s Series Will Address [That] Death…

WARNING: SPOILERS FOR AVENGERS ENDGAME

The upcoming Disney plus series focused on War Machine, Armor Wars, will address Tony’s death in Endgame. The upcoming series will be focused on the aftermath of Endgame and the fallout of Stark’s new technology being used with bad intentions.

“It’s really a fun and interesting and, by all imagination, completely open-ended — this can go anywhere… It’s great. I can’t wait to get in the room with the writers and figure out how all those things (connecting Armor Wars to the MCU) happen.”

Don Cheadle also dropped a minor spoiler about his character appearing in another MCU project but for those who would like to be surprised we will leave it out of this article. For those that want to see it, it’s not hard to find!

Joker’s New Look Teased In Snyder Cut Photo

Zack Snyder dropped a teaser of what fans can expect to see Joker look like in his upcoming cut of the Justice League movie. Check out the image below as well as the tweet!

His hair appears to be longer than what we saw in the Suicide Squad movie but one thing is clear is his trademark joker card. It’s also worth pointing out that he’s wearing scrubs or rubber gloves which might point to a hospital or chemical facility. Regardless this builds anticipation for the long awaited Snyder Cut Justice League movie!!!

Kevin Hart Cast As Roland In Upcoming Borderlands Movie

Today it was officially revealed that Kevin Hart is in fact apart of the upcoming Borderlands movie but not as the previously speculated Claptrap but as the vault hunter & hero of Pandora, Roland. This has came as a surprise to many as most fans are use to Kevin in comedic roles which doesn’t fit the archetype of Roland’s character.

For those that don’t know, Roland is the leader of the Crimson Raiders and a playable vault hunter in the first Borderlands game. Roland often serves as the voice of reason and as the “straight man” in most comedic situations in the Borderlands games. He appears as one of the few characters that hasn’t lost their sanity. Borderlands, while violent, is a game series that doesn’t hold back with the humor. There’s always a joke being thrown at the player, character dynamics often display humorous conversations and many situations will make the player chuckle.

So it’ll be interesting to see Kevin Hart play a character that is typically the “serious one” despite being in a film about a game that often utilizes humor. I’m excited to see Kevin Hart dive into a different role and here’s to hoping we see a different side of his acting ability. In the recent years, Kevin has been training vigorously and has teased the idea of him being in a action movie. What are your thoughts? Are excited? Let us know!

“I’m thrilled to be working with Kevin [Hart]. Borderlands is a different kind of role for him, and we are excited to thrill audiences with a side of Kevin they’ve never seen before. He’s going to be an amazing Roland.”
