DRAGON BALL Z
Dragon Ball Z is actually getting some new content coming out this July. It’s being reported by EW that Toei Animation has begun working on a new series titled Dragon Ball Super, and it will be the first Dragon Ball television series to debut in 18 years.
Yes, all these other renditions and newly titled animated airings have all been repeats.
I used to be a big fan of the series so I wonder if they can pull this off to the same fandom or success the first series had? The new series will be overseen by the same people who ran the original.
IRON MAN Lawsuit
Not sure you heard this silliness, but The Wrap is reporting that someone has the audacity to try and sue Disney and Marvel over some apparent similarities between Iron Man‘s armored look, some marketing poses and their own character creation that uses armor and struck a similar pose.
First off, I’m not giving the unhappy party any additional credit by mentioning them. They’re just seemingly looking for some free press and found themselves a berserk lawyer who is enabling them.
The lawsuit contends that the appearance of Iron Man’s armor seemed similar to their own creation, citing Iron Man’s spandex armor appearance in the comics… “crickets!”
OK bitches, listen up… Iron Man never wore spandex ever since his inception in 1963. Unless they’re suing about the underwear he was wearing.
Just checking, but the lawyer that helped them file this suit needs to have his man-card and lawyer-card pulled.
Word on the digital street is that The Scarlet Witch will be appearing in Captain America: Civil War.
Word is that Universal will now be releasing Pacific Rim 2 on August 4th, 2017. Oh, wait… yes, there will be a new Pacific Rim movie coming out! Whoop! (That whoop came from the inner man-child in me. Sorry.)
And in case you had not heard this particular news, apparently Fifty Shades did well enough to warrant two sequels… “Fifty Shades Darker” and “Fifty Shade Freed.” Sigh.
Of course the movie did well financially but was ripped apart by most movie critics. It did well by either a huge (and dirty-minded) curiosity factor or this is the Transformers syndrome, where critics will be critics and fans will show the critics it doesn’t matter what they think.
So what are those titles? Is Darker what happens during a long-term kinky relationship? Is Freed how one feels when breaking up with the guy?
BATMAN v SUPERMAN
I know what you’re thinking but Henry Cavill, who plays Superman, says that Batman v. Superman is not a Superman sequel.
In an interview with MTV, he says that Superman is appearing in a world that was introduced by the Man of Steel film, and it is introducing Batman to that world, along with the Justice League.
Warner Bros. Pictures’ Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and Holly Hunter and Jason Momoa as Aquaman.
It’s due out on March 25, 2016 and will be brought to us by directory Zack Snyder off a screenplay written by David S. Goyer. There will be no Christopher Nolan attached to this project, but rather, production is in the hands of Zack Snyder and his wife’s production company, Deborah Snyder.
I’ll be holding my breath. I think.
