Many fans are getting excited for DC Universe to launch and all the original content it’s promising us. We’ve been hearing quite a bit about Titans lately, with many saying that it’s actually good. We’re also being pumped up for Doom Patrol with more cast announcements every week it feels. In addition to the live-action stuff, we just found out Haley Cuoco will be voicing Harley Quinn and of course many of you are getting impatient for Young Justice: Outsiders. When do all of these shows come out though? We’ve only ever gotten vague release dates like “sometime in 2019,” until now. DC has released an actual timeline for us to look at.
If you’re not excited for Titans, you may want to hold off on subscribing for a bit since it’s the only show that will launch in 2018. The shows are staggered out which should allow you to stay up to date on each one without fear of neglecting the others. Which show are you most excited for?
It’s no secret that TV and movie casts like to have fun behind-the-scenes. What you probably don’t expect is for them to start singing the Pokemon theme song. Rose McIver recently shared a video of herself and Rahul Kohli getting ready to work on iZombie when McIver starts singing about being the very best. It’s just fun to see actors have fun on the job sometimes. iZombie will end with season five, which is currently in production.
There are a few weird things about Krillin’s design that Dragon Ball fans have come to just accept. One of those is his lack of a nose. It’s even something that other characters have pointed out. According to the Dragon Ball Wiki, creator Akira Toriyama explained why Krillin doesn’t have a nose with this response: “Krillin has a physical idiosyncrasy that allows him to breathe through his skin.”
What would it look like if the fighter did have a nose though? FTW Studios has answered such a question. He released 3 pictures where he gave Krillin a nose and it’s kind of weird. It looks fine after you get used to it though. When you get to the second and third pictures, look closely and you’ll realize that he didn’t just add a nose to Krillin’s face. Rather, he stole someone else’s. This just makes the pictures even more weird. While I am intrigued at one day Krillin being wished a nose, it’s weird to me to see Android 18 and Goku without noses.
We recently found out that Kaley Cuoco will be voicing Harley Quinn in the DC Universe original series Harley Quinn. While I have reservations about the casting, I know many fans are excited. What would it be like if it were a live-action series though? What would Cuoco look like then? These must’ve been the questions that BossLogic had after hearing the announcement as he has gifted us with his idea of what Cuoco would look like as Harley in a live-action project. As always, his art is amazing. What do you guys think though?
Big congrats to Kaley Cuoco on being cast as animated #HarleyQuinn she sounds amazing! just to add I think she would make a great live action version too (personal opinion, don't stab me 😂) ❤️❤️❤️ be sure to check her out at @NY_Comic_Conpic.twitter.com/NYwSzb0hOG
There’s been a trend lately to take awesome films and giving them an anime-style intro. I am a huge fan of these and now, MytholoGeek has kinda done the same thing to the live-action Bleach film. It uses the music from the first Bleach intro in the anime and uses clips to create the opening sequence. It’s really well done in my opinion as a fan of the show from the start. While this is very similar to the other films like Thor: Ragnarok getting anime intros, I would still put this in a separate class simply because it was an anime first. What do you think? Did you like hearing “Asterisk” by ORANGE RANGE again?
Robin Hood has me very confused. Part of it feels like your typical medieval Robin Hood film, another feels modern, and a third part feels almost sci-fi. It’s very weird. I’m not convinced it will be a great film, but I think it could be a very fun film to watch. Probably the best part of this new trailer is when Marion tells Robin that his disguise is terrible. Taron Egerton will star as Robin Hood alongside Jamie Foxx who will portray Little John. Otto Bathurst directed Robin Hood which will be released on November 21, 2018.
Even more actors are joining the cast of gen:LOCK. The latest announcement is that Asia Kate Dillon (Billions, Orange is the New Black) and Golshifteh Farahani (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) have signed on. Dillon’s character is Valentina “Val” Romanyszyn who is “a former Ukrainian covert agent who thought they were done fighting.” Meanwhile, Farahani will play Yasamin “Yaz” Madrani who is described as “a talented and confident recruit from Iran who finds her calling in the gen:LOCK program, but who won’t open up easily about her past.”
I keep getting more excited about this new mecha show from Rooster Teeth. If you need a reminder of some of the other names attached to the project, we’ve got Michael B. Jordan, Dakota Fanning, David Tennant, and Maisie Williams, just to name a few. The videos below show us what Val and Yaz will look like.
gen:LOCK will premiere in January 2019, on Rooster Teeth.
I’m still wrapping my head around the fact that Paul W.S. Anderson is making a Monster Hunter film. It’s even lining up some interesting actors including Tony Jaa, Milla Jovovich, and Ron Perlman. Now, Diego Boneta is joining the adaptation which is supposed to start filming later this month. Boneta will play a communications specialist in Artemis’ (played by Jovovich) team.
The movie’s plot centers on the leader of a UN military team named Artemis, played by Jovovich, who is transported to another realm populated by monsters. There she meets the Hunter (Jaa), with the two teaming up to close a portal to prevent monsters from attacking Earth.
Do you think Monster Hunter will work as a film? I’m not fully convinced yet.
Alex Wolff was the nerdy kid in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle who becomes Dwayne Johnson. Now, Wolff will be in Cory Finley’s Bad Education alongside Hugh Jackman, Allison Janey, and Ray Romano among others. Unfortunately, his character details are being kept under wraps.
Bad Education was written by Mike Makowsky who based it on his personal experience in high school. I’m very interested to see a trailer for this film. I guess first, we probably need a release date though.
I love Laika’s films. They are absolutely amazing, and I think they’re often overlooked. Their next film is Missing Link and it will star Zach Galifianakis, Hugh Jackman, and Zoe Saldana. If you’re like me and are looking forward to this film, you might be happy to hear that it will be released a whole week earlier. This comes after Universal moved the release of The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle to 2020. Missing Link will now be released on April 12, 2019.
Missing Link was written and directed by Chris Butler and is produced by Arianne Sutner and Travis Knight. The film will also feature the voice talents of Amrita Acharia, Stephen Fry, Matt Lucas, Timothy Olyphant, Emma Thompson, Ching Valdes-Aran, and David Walliams.
