Recasting Surprise in The Flash, Which U.L.T.I.M.A.T.U.M Will Marvel Giv...



Teasing the possibility of a new album, “if the quarantine lasts long enough.” Posted a semi-acoustic quarantine version of “Blackened” on their social medias.

Killswitch Engage
Atonement II: B-Sides released, 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the COVID-19 Relief Fund for the Center for Disaster Philanthropy. On sale May 8.

Guns ‘N Roses
New music in the works as confirmed by Duff McKagan’s wife, and kinda by Slash a little while ago, on the “Appetite for Distortion” podcast.

Jim Root
Slipknot’s guitar player is looking to take this mandatory down time and complete work on a solo record.

Marilyn Manson
New album is complete, according to Shooter Jennings who collaborated on the record. Also the first album with guitarist Paul Wiley and new drummer, Brandon Pertzborn (of BLACK FLAG, DOYLE and HO99O9).

BEHOLD! The Arctopus
NEW RECORD! And a new single “Forgotten Explanations.” Record (Hapeleptic Overtrove) out June 12th.

The Weapon
Jesse Leach has ANOTHER side project. This one is a punk band, and they just released their first single “Slave State.” No word on a record to follow yet.


The Flash
Grant Gustin revealed on Michael Rosenbaum’s podcast that discussions had begun for season 8 and 9 renewal before the shut down.

The Terror
Renewed for a third season. No reveal on the premise for the season yet though.

The Boys
ALSO renewed for a third season. They are really confident in this show.

Sam and Twitch live action series in the works according to McFarlane. Kevin Smith wrote the spec script for the pilot, and it is being shopped out to networks and streamers now.


AMC and now Cineworld (Parent Company of Regal Cinemas) have stated that they will not be showing any movies from Universal Studios. The announcement comes after Universal has made known their plans to continue same day VOD releases as the theatrical releases of all their movies going forward.

Spy VS Spy
Rawson Marshall Thurber (Red Notice) is in talks with Imagine Entertainment to direct a Spy VS Spy movie. Also set to have Ron Howard and Brian Glazer produce.

Spider-Man 3
Charlie Cox is squashing rumors about Daredevil appearing in the movie. At least his version of the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen.

Josh Cooley (Toy Story 4) is set to direct an animated theatrical prequel Transformers movie. Presumably, a prequel to the original cartoon story, NOT the Michael Bay-verse. The script for the movie was penned by Ant-Man and the Wasp writers Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari. 

The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon
Christy Hall, I Am Not Okay With This co-creator, has been brought in by Village Roadshow to pen the movie adaptation. 

Keanu Reeves
Matrix 4 and John Wick 4 no longer have the same release date. Due to the corona shut-down, filming schedules have been all messed up, so Matrix’s filming schedule has forced John Wick’s schedule to be pushed too far back to maintain the same release date. Matrix is still, it seems, set for the May 21, 2021 date, with John Wick May 22, 2022.

90 minute animated movie in the works. McFarlane says the animation is in the works currently, then likely it is just a matter of finding a studio to distribute it.

The Russos are officially producing, no word on the director. They are said to be “too busy” to direct, which will likely feed more rumors about WHY they are so busy.


Apex Legends season 5
The Legend for season 5 is Loba, the surviving daughter from the family we saw Revenant kill in his season 4 reveal. No word on what her abilities will be just yet.

Evo 2020
The regular event has been cancelled. To be replaced with a digital version this summer. Details of which are still TBD.

Tony Hawk: Alcatraz
The next new game in the franchise? There have been rumors that the first 2 games are getting facelifts for the current gen consoles. Now it seems that the next proper installment has been leaked. German game retailer, Gameware, who has leaked info like this in the past, has just leaked that the next Tony Hawk game will not only be titled Alcatraz, but also that the release date is Oct. 30.

Comic Books/Books

New comics starting up again as of May 27. Starting small with just 5 books the first week, then the following week 7 books. From there it looks like the plan is to be business as usual. With all books being available digitally at the same time.

The Lost Carnival
New GN about Dick Grayson’s childhood. To be released May 5.

Rumor Mill

Is it the Jeph Loeb story line, or is it just the inclusion of the Underground Liberated Totally Integrated Mobile Army To Unite Mankind? There seem to be rumors for both. Though the more likely is the Mobile Army. Would be interesting to see Dr. Doom and Magneto go against one another.

Namor is being rumored to be the next sizable event in the MCU, though not a Thanos level threat. Said to be in Eternals, Dr Strange 2, AND Black Panther 2.

The Flash
Re-casting a character and it isn’t who you think. Rumor is that they have listed a casting call for the character of Iris. It sounds like Kiersey Clemons could still retain the role, but she is going to have to fight for it.

Disney is reportedly in the planning phase right now that has brought them to the FOURTH iteration of the Merc with a Mouth, and for this one they want a team-up movie with Spidey. 

Ghost Rider
Now rumored to be not only starring Keanu Reeves as Johnny Blaze, but also into the pre-production part of the game.

Zack Snyder
WB is rumored to be letting him back into the DCEU. But just for one film, and only if it is a “Black Label” style movie.

Guardians Vol 3
Harrison Ford is apparently being eyed for a villainous role in the movie.
