Beavalien and Butt-Pred STRIKE! Plus a BUNCH of BATMAN Rumors | Week In ...




NBC is trying their hand at an X-Files style show again. This time called Debris, and it is starring Riann Steele (Ant Man and the Wasp, Legacies, Magicians) and Jonathan Tucker (Westworld, Snowfall). Created by the Almost Human creator, J.H. Wyman. This will be the first NBC pilot from 2020 to go to series. Both pilots they had this year got picked up, the other one though, La Brea, won’t go to series until later this year.
“two agents, played by Steele and Tucker, from two different continents, and two different mindsets, must work together to investigate when wreckage from a destroyed alien spacecraft has mysterious effects on humankind.”

Star Trek: Lower Decks
Release date, Aug. 6th.

Bevis and Butthead
Coming to Comedy Central for at least 2 seasons, with spin-off options as well as specials in the mix. Mike Judge will be returning as the Showrunner and jack-of-all-trades for the show.

Amazon is bringing the wasteland to live-action series. To be helmed by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. 


Carl Reiner
Passed at 98 of “natural causes”

Frosty the Snowman
A new Christmas movie from the writer of Elf, David Berenbaum. Has just been announced over at WB. Set to star Jason Momoa, and will be produced by Geoff Johns.

The new corporate plan is apparently to start playing movies in the parking lot. No word on the specifics yet, beyond August being their target for rolling this out. Looks like Jaws, Space Jam, and others are on the list.

A different reboot. This time it's animated. Point Grey Pictures, Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg’s production studio, has teamed with Paramount Pictures to bring a NEW animated movie to the screen.


Climate Change
The House Democrats put out their plan to combat climate change should they win the majority in November. A part of their 500 page plan involves BLOCKING OUT THE SUN through geoengineering…

Following Canon’s example, Olympus is rolling out a program to turn your camera into a webcam, OM-D Webcam. Like Canon’s program, this will be a beta, and will have limited compatibility: E-M1X, the E-M1, E-M1 Mark II, E-M1- Mark III, and the E-M5 Mark II. Unlike Canon, though, there will be no audio from your DSLR to the computer. No word if the resolution will be limited like Canon’s software.

Hyper Scape
July 12 will see the release of Ubisoft’s battle royale entry. The game has been developed directly with Twitch, and will reportedly incorporate Twitch chat directly into the game itself. With the chat somehow affecting the game.

Comic Books/Books

Dresden Files
Newest book in the series releasing July 14.

Star Trek: Discovery
Also releasing this month is a book based on the CBS series. Section 31: Die Standing due out July 14.

After YEARS of being Dark Horse properties, Marvel has announced that they are the new home for both the Alien and Predator franchises. They have both been Dark Horse properties since ‘88 and ‘89 respectively.

Rumor Mill

The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It
New Line is likely to move the third movie from Sept. 11, back to sometime next year.

Rumors abound about the XBox exclusive series. With Microsoft renewing the patent for the game just days before it expired, speculation has it that there will be a new Fable game as a launch title for Series X.

MORE BATMAN RUMORS! This time they are saying that Ben Affleck has actually signed a deal to return to the cape and cowl. With the rumors continuing, saying that WB is actively working on a proper multiverse. So ALL of the Batman actors could be making some sort of return.

Michael Keaton is said to be playing Bruce and not Thomas Wayne in a new set of rumors. They also say that we STILL won’t be seeing Jeffrey Dean Morgan return as Thomas, as the character isn’t even in the script.

DC is rumored to be making Supes the head of The Authority in the comic books… a pretty questionable move if real.

Justice League: Rebirth
Reportedly in the works with JJ Abrams being eyed to direct. A soft-reboot… but only if you don’t believe the other rumors.
