Star Wars nerd. Toy collector. Occasional Cosplayer.is a pop-culture dork. When he's not scouring the internet for news on the latest movies and games, he's building Star Wars model kits and playing Overwatch. He's a huge Star Wars geek, and his favorite X-Wing pilot is Jek Porkins. He likes Kevin Smith and Jared Hess movies, and he also does cosplay. What a nerd.
With every major Star Wars release, Lucasfilm has been coming up with a compilation of concept art dubbed The Art of series. The Art of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is set to come out later this March, but some photos have made their way online and have been driving fans crazy with speculation.
One such image has Kylo Ren talking to “the Oracle” at Mustafar and you can even see Vader’s castle looming in the background. You can check out the image here.
The Oracle was something that had been teased in leaks before the film came out, and a lot of people are sure that it was a scene that ended up on the cutting room floor. Seeing as the start of TROS was one of the most jarring, I would have loved to see more of Mustafar as a location, especially since it’s changed so much since we last saw it in Rogue One. Besides, the scene with the Oracle would have helped flesh out Kylo’s character motivation a bit more.
Seeing as how many people didn’t like how The Rise of Skywalker came out, fans have been rallying behind a leak that supposedly reveals that Disney had taken creative control from J.J. Abrams and gave us the mess that we got. We don’t know if they’ll ever release a Director’s Cut of the movie, but if the OT can have special editions, then why not this last film? Besides, if there’s money to make, why would Disney say no?
For now, you can catch Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker now in theaters.

February is almost here, meaning we’re getting closer to the release of Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn). As it turns out, the soundtrack for the movie is going to be a big deal, and WB has released a trailer for the album.
Here’s the full list of songs:
Doja Cat - "Boss Bitch"
WHIPPED CREAM (feat. Baby Goth) - "So Thick"
Megan Thee Stallion & Normani - "Diamonds"
Saweetie & GALXARA - "Sway With Me"
Charlotte Lawrence - "Joke's On You"
Maisie Peters - "Smile"
CYN - "Lonely Gun"
Halsey - "Experiment On Me"
Jucee Froot - "Danger"
K.Flay - "Bad Memory"
Sofi Tukker - "Feeling Good"
Lauren Jauregui - "Invisible Chains"
Black Canary - "It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World"
Summer Walker - "I’m Gonna Love You Just A Little More Baby"
ADONA - "Hit Me With Your Best Shot"
While a lot of songs look to be original compositions for the movie, it looks like some other songs from the film are going to be covers by other artists. Seeing that Black Canary is also known as a singer in the comics, it was a no-brainer that she was going to have at least one song in the film; much less have one in the soundtrack.
We don’t have the Canary version, but you can listen to James Brown’s:
Ever since Guardians of the Galaxy, it seems like we’re getting more emphasis on the music that’s coming out with comic book films. Even Suicide Squad had the hit Heathens. I wonder which song will come out on top for Birds of Prey?
Catch Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) in theaters Feb. 7.

After the Winter Wonderland event, Overwatch is ready to celebrate the Lunar New Year for 2020. With the Year of the Rat incoming, Blizzard has dropped a new teaser giving us new skins, emotes, and highlight intros.
Ring in the new year on the objective! For a limited time, celebrate with your favorite heroes in the 2020 Overwatch Lunar New Year event and earn new skins, emotes, highlight intros, player icons, sprays, and more. Plus, play limited-time game modes, including the new-for-2020 brawl: Capture-the-Flag Blitz.
As always, the new skins look fantastic, and out of the seven, my personal favorites have got to be Sombra’s Face Changer ad Brigitte’s Opera. We also have two new emotes with Bastion and Hanzo, and only one new highlight intro for Junkrat which puts him overeating right next to Roadhog.
Besides the new cosmetics, we’ll also be seeing the return of the Capture the Flag event. We know that the game has been having a hard time balancing out a CTF game mode, but it is teased that this version will be made new for 2020.
You can check out all the new things here.
Though Overwatch is set to have a sequel come out soon, it looks like support for this first game is going to last for a while. After all, it did only come out in 2016. You’d think that they would wait for a bit longer before giving us a follow-up. Heck, World of Warcraft came out in 2004 and that’s still alive and kicking.
The Lunar New Year event for Overwatch is now live and ends on Feb. 5.

Fans went wild over the finale of Crisis on Infinite Earths where we got an unexpected cameo from Ezra Miller’s Flash; and while nobody saw it coming, it was something that Miller himself had predicted four years ago.
Well this chat with Ezra Miller from 4 years ago feels pretty relevant tonight. pic.twitter.com/YQEPTZywfN

You have to love Miller’s enthusiasm for the role. While a lot of people like to scoff at the campiness of The CW shows, they admittedly have their own following, and Miller himself is just happy to be part of the franchise.
Miller’s cameo wasn’t only for himself as well. He made it a point to mention “Victor” as in Victor Stone a.k.a. Cyborg. With no idea when Ray Fisher will reprise the role, it’s great that Miller is reminding the audience that Cyborg still exists in his universe. Fingers crossed he makes a cameo in The Flash; heck, give him a supporting role.
Despite the major delays that have been plaguing the Flash movie, Miller is still onboard as Barry Allen, even going so far as to make his own script with Geoff Johns. It seems like WB didn’t go forward with the script, but there seems to be a new understanding when it comes to director Andy Muschietti (IT) taking on the project.
As for Grant Gustin, he still looks to have a couple more years of playing the Flash. Then again, Stephen Amell finally put the Green Arrow role to rest, maybe Gustin could be moving on to a better role soon enough.
Catch The Flash on CW, while The Flash movie set in the DCEU is set for a release on July 1, 2022.

Netflix has a lot of great original content, and probably one of the most interesting shows on the platform right now is David Fincher’s Mindhunter. With fans waiting for the third season, news has it that it could be a while before we see the return of agents Holden Ford and Bill Tench.
According to Deadline, the third season of Mindhunter has been put on hold indefinitely since Fincher has gotten busy with his schedule. Hence, the show has seen it fit to release the main cast—including Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany, and Anna Torv—from their contracts, freeing them to join other projects.
A Netflix spokesperson has come out to say, “David is focused on directing his first Netflix film Mank and on producing the second season of Love, Death and Robots… He may revisit Mindhunter again in the future, but in the meantime felt it wasn’t fair to the actors to hold them from seeking other work while he was exploring new work of his own.”
Seeing as there was a 2-year gap between the first and second seasons, I wouldn’t worry too much about Mindhunter making a comeback. The show is admittedly great, and the cast is said to enjoy their work with Fincher. Hopefully, they don’t get cast in something that would possibly stop them from coming back for another season of Mindhunter. I mean, we still have to find out how they catch the BTK Killer after two years of the show. Then again, maybe we could just get a huge time jump because BTK was caught in 2005, and the events of the show take place in the 70s.
For now, you can catch the first two seasons of Mindhunter now on Netflix.

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have been the butt of internet ridicule ever since the end of Game of Thrones, and they have since lost their Star Wars project with Lucasfilm. Too bad for D&D though, because it looks like HBO has dropped another long-gestating project from the duo.
According to TV Line, HBO has turned down Benioff and Weiss’ show Confederate which focuses on an alternate reality US where the South won the Civil War and Slavery has grown into a modern institution. The project was said to have been in development since February 2018, and it has been followed by controversy, seeing that Benioff and Weiss are both white men making a series about Slavery.
If you ask me, the premise is actually pretty interesting, and I don’t think Benioff and Weiss shouldn’t be allowed to make the show because of the color of their skin. If anything, most of the negativity comes from how the pair ended Game of Thrones, and everyone is just adding on to reasons as to why the two shouldn’t be allowed to work on anything again.
If anything, D&D still have their deal with Netflix, and seeing as to how the streaming service is always open for more original content, I think they could very well pick-up Confederate. If they don’t want to take the project though, then maybe it just wasn’t meant to be.
We have yet to find out what the next big project for Benioff and Weiss is, but hopefully they announce something soon.

Rumors have been going around for a while that the MCU is building up to a Young Avengers team-up, and we already have our first member in the form of Cassie Lang (Stature). What’s interesting is, we could be getting another Young Avenger in the upcoming WandaVision show.
Murphy’s Multiverse had recently reported that Marvel is set to cast the role of Teddy Altman a.k.a. Hulkling for an MCU show. Then The Illuminerdi comes out to say that they have confirmed that Hulkling is supposed to appear in WandaVision and that he’s a Skrull in hiding that was helped by SWORD—an agency that is confirmed to appear on the show.

We don’t have any official confirmation from Marvel about Hulkling showing up, but it kind of makes sense, seeing that Teddy was romantically involved with the son of Wanda Maximoff, Billy Kaplan a.k.a. Wiccan (also a Young Avenger). For now, it’s best to take this news with a grain of salt.
Until Marvel releases an official teaser, all we can really do for WandaVision is speculate. We know that the show will have some kind of sitcom format, and some are reading this as a kind of mental breakdown from Wanda, with her powers going haywire as she tries to cope with the loss of Vision. Rumor had come out that the villain for the series is actually Doctor Strange’s Nightmare, but I kind of love the idea that there is no villain, and Wanda’s biggest enemy in the series is herself.
For now, WandaVision is set to come out later this year. No official release date has been revealed, but I’m guessing it could hit Disney+ by winter.

We got the second season of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina last April, but it looks like the third season is going to be arriving earlier for 2020. Just in, Netflix has dropped the first teaser for The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part III, and it features Sabrina and once again juggling high school and being the rightful queen of Hell.
While we don’t get any specific plot points, we do have some updates on the questions that we were left with in the last season. By the looks of it, Sabrina is still bent on getting Nick back from hell, and it looks like everyone wants her to take her rightful place on the throne of Hell. Though the seasons are told with one overarching story, I’m sure we’re going to be getting some smaller adventures that feature unique monsters and obstacles for Sabrina.
What I think is also weird/fun about this season is that they look to be doing a parody of 2019 horror hit, Midsommar. We have all the characters dressed in white, complete with creepy masks, and we also have Sabrina with her head adorned with flowers.
We don’t know what The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is building up to, but it looks like Netflix has been on a roll when it comes to this Riverdale spinoff. The world of Sabrina is its own thing, and it manages to find a quirky balance between the satanic, and the dramatic.
Catch The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part III when it comes back to Netflix on Jan. 24.

After the Harry Potter movie franchise ended, Daniel Radcliffe has sort of been trying his hand at several other more artsy projects (e.g., Swiss Army Man). Now he looks to be playing a role in another kooky film called Guns Akimbo.
This is the official description of the film:
Nerdy video game developer (Daniel Radcliffe) is a little too fond of stirring things up on the internet with his caustic, prodding, and antagonizing comments. One night, he makes the mistake of drunkenly dropping an inflammatory barb on a broadcast of Skizm, an illegal death-match fight club streamed live to the public. In response, Riktor (Ned Dennehy), the maniacal mastermind behind the channel, decides to force Miles' hand (or hands, as it were) and have him join the "fun." Miles wakes to find heavy pistols bolted into his bones, and learns Nix (Samara Weaving), the trigger-happy star of Skizm, is his first opponent.
If anything, the trailer feels kind of similar to Ryan Reynolds’ Free Guy film, but Guns Akimbo definitely looks less kid-friendly. Either way, it looks to be another commentary on video games and our desire to have violence for entertainment.
I have to hand it to Radcliffe though, he hasn’t been starring in any big blockbuster films as of late, but he seems to be taking on projects that are more on the weird and artsy side. It’s kind of what Robert Pattinson had been doing. After Twilight, Pattinson did some more obscure projects like The Lighthouse and The King.
Catch Guns Akimbo when it hits theaters March 5.

As teased yesterday, NetherRealm has dropped the gameplay trailer for the upcoming DLC character Joker. What’s interesting is, besides a look at the Clown Prince of Crime, we also have alternate DC-based skins for other characters.
Compared to Joker from the last Injustice game, it looks like this version of the character has a completely different play style. Sure he still makes use of silly gadgets, but this time he’s able to summon henchmen and actually attack with them. It also looks like his main weapon for this game is going to be a cane—the last one had him prominently using a knife.
As for alternate skins, we have a Batman Who Laughs skin for Noob Saibot, a Killer Croc Skin for Baraka, a Catwoman skin for Kitana, and a Darkseid skin for Geras. Besides these skins, the game already has a Harley Quinn skin available for Cassie Cage.
With Injustice usually being the “PG” version of NetherRealm’s fighting games, it’s interesting to see the Joker go all out with the violence when it comes to Mortal Kombat. Come to think of it, he’s probably the only character in Injustice who can pull off these wacky fatalities and still be in character; I mean, even the heroes of this franchise can turn out pretty sadistic—but that’s all part of the fun.
The Joker DLC arrives on Jan. 28. Mortal Kombat 11 is now playable for Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
