Hello fellow geeks, nerds, and dorks. Welcome to the long weekend! Starting Friday on Syfy you can return to Hogwarts for a Harry Potter Weekend! I mean, it's not a holiday weekend without that, right?
If by some chance you are heading out to a social distancing BBQ, don't be the person who gets your burger all over you. Thanks to YouTube here is the easiest way to eat a burger. Oh, and if you aren't going to one, still these tips so you can be a pro NEXT year!
With that out of the way....let's geek out!
Grab The Umbrella
On Friday, July 31st we will return to the academy. The announcement for the premier date was 100% perfect.
Bye Bye Batwoman
Say it with me, Damn It Barry! I mean... Kate!
This past Tuesday night, this news almost broke the internet. After one season and two crossovers in the Arrowverse, Ruby Rose is hanging up the cowl as Batwoman. The show has announced a plan. They will recast Kate Kane and, as of right now, not address the change. Okay, sure! That won't be odd. Bad timing, right? If bat signals lined up better and this was last year it could have been made during the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover. This way, a new actress taking on the role would be the easiest explanation.
Batwoman is set to return in January of 2021.
The Synder Cut Is Coming
Looks like Warner Brothers and DC finally caved. After many online pensions and fan outcry, the mysterious "Synder Cut" of the 2017 DCEU team up movie, Justice League, will be seeing the light of day in 2021. Where? Not in theaters but on the new HBO Max streaming service. There has also been some chatter that this version will be divided up into a mini-series instead of being released as a full fledged movie. Both the release and mini series options are interesting and very smart moves by Warner Brothers and DC. Here's why.
- It will generate more subscriptions to the service and justify the $14.99-a-month price tag (unless you pre-order before the launch)
- This version, is assumed, will be both longer and more in depth than what we saw in theaters back in 2017. it could potentially be confusing if its all thrown at you as a movie that you will want to watch in one sitting.
Think of it like this...The Mandalorian. Is that series better as a weekly show or a movie? Weekly show, duh! Even if this cut is released all at once you can watch a part here and then watch another one at some other point. This could re-kick off the DCEU. Maybe not, sorry I got carried away.
HBO Max will launch on Wednesday May 27th, 2020. For any and all info about it, here's a run down
WE ARE SEX BOB-OMB AND SCOTT PILGRIM IS COMING BACK!
No, not a sequel but a return to the big screen for its 10 year anniversary! To mark such an important milestone Scott Pilgrim VS The World will be returning to theaters this August (as long as movie theaters are reopened). Director Edgar Wright made the announcement on his twitter account this past Thursday.
However, this could NOT be at a theater near you. Scott Pilgrim and his band are under the Universal Studios umbrella. Remember, AMC and Regal Theaters have banned all movies from Universal over their comments a while back about how successful Trolls: World Tour was without being sent to theaters. Insert sad young Neil face.
