MCU Enthusiast and Neil Gaiman Fanatic is a huge Star Wars fan, but a bigger MCU geek. If it's anything about time travel, superheroes, zombies, Norse mythology, space and the universe, end of the world, aliens--all things wacky, campy, impossible, and whimsical, she'll be all over it. She likes to jam to Queen, but EXO has a special place in her heart. Everything she loves, she shares with her six adorable dogs.
Black Canary has been prominent in animated shows, television series, and video games, which is why when the Birds of Prey movie was initially announced, fans got really hyped up to finally see the character on the big screen. Jurnee Smollett-Bell has been receiving lots of love from fans for her version of Black Canary so far, and it looks like they’re not the only ones looking forward to it.
Gail Simone, Birds of Prey comic book writer, took to Twitter to express her desire to see a Birds of Prey spin-off with Black Canary. It looks like she would want to write it based on Smollett-Bell as well, along with Huntress, Savant, and Creote. You can check it out below.
All I am saying is Black Canary solo movie starring @jurneesmollett.
And I write it.
And it has Huntress.
And Savant and Creote.
— GAIL SIMONE (@GailSimone) January 18, 2020
With Huntress, Savant, and Creote included in her vision, it seems like Simone is looking to write this spin-off movie based on her own run of the Birds of Prey comic. Simone added Huntress to her series in 2003, while Savant and Creote were some of the villains she first introduced.
For now, there’s no telling if there would be a Birds of Prey spin-off film planned in the near future. Regardless, Simone is already on board to write it, and fans would definitely want to see that movie. In the meantime, fans are already anticipating the Birds of Prey film and they can’t wait to see the team in action.
Aside from Smollett-Bell, the Birds of Prey cast also includes Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Rosie Perez as Renne Montoya, Chris Messina as Victor Zsasz, Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain, and Ewan McGregor as Black Mask.

Jaskier quickly became a fan-favorite character in Netflix’s The Witcher series. The whimsical bard built an unexpected friendship with Geralt, not to mention his very catchy song about the adventures of the Witcher. The viewers certainly loved the pair’s dynamic and it looks like Joey Batey does too, which is pretty evident as he talks about his favorite scenes with Henry Cavill.
In a recent interview with Comic Book, Batey revealed that his favorite scenes were “the slightly more down moments.” “The moments where we connect and kind of step away from all the nonsense and the improvisation, which there was a lot of,” he said. “Because I apparently just don't say the script.”
He mentioned that there was a “lovely arc” in episode six where there are “a couple of moments” that the “frivolity” and “comic nature” of the duo’s relationship gets pushed aside and they finally get talk to each other as friends. Batey thinks this is where the viewers were able to see “what all the years of traveling” together does to two men “who love each other very much.”
“And I think that for me was the most important thing to play, was grounding it in that loyalty and that friendship, and then the humor and all the goofing about, that's just like a bonus,” he added. “That's the fun stuff.”
In the second season of The Witcher, showrunner Lauren Hissrich revealed that Jaskier will start to think about “what he needs and wants in the world.” As opposed to seeing his humorous attitude in the first season, the second one will show more of his serious side.

Set as the leader of Birds of Prey, fans were excited to see Batgirl on the big screen upon the announcement of the movie. Unfortunately, she won’t be included in the upcoming film, instead, she is said to have a movie of her own. There hasn’t been any word on it since, but it looks Karen Gillan is already interested in the character.
In a recent interview with Omelete, the Guardians of the Galaxy star was asked about the comic character that she would like to play. “Batgirl would be pretty cool,” Gillan said. “Yeah, she’s a redhead!”
Then, the actress was also asked if she would like to direct a comic book film as well and she mentions the character again. “Batgirl would be pretty cool for that as well. My favorite films in that world are dark, and my favorite one is Dark Knight,” she said. “I just love the way that was directed so much so I would love to work in that kind of world as the director.”
It’s safe to assume that Gillan’s comments were just an expression of her desire and excitement to star in and direct a Batgirl movie, and that it isn’t necessarily an indication that she will be actually doing it. Barbara Gordon’s potential appearance on the big screen is still uncertain, but fans would surely love to see it happen soon.
As for Gillan’s future Marvel project, the actress will return as Nebula in the upcoming sequel of Guardians of the Galaxy. She revealed in a previous interview that she has already read the script and thinks it’s “amazing.” Gillan also thinks that the sequel movie will be the “best of the trilogy.”

One of the most shocking things to come out of The Rise of Skywalker trailers is the appearance of Dark Rey. Star Wars fans were in awe of how the heroine looked like if she ever turned to the Dark Side. Sporting a black cloak, she wields a double-bladed red lightsaber. Rey’s other version was only shown for a few minutes in the movie, and now Episode IX VFX supervisors details how they came up with her awesome look.
Speaking with Insider, Visual Effects supervisors Patrick Tubach and Roger Guyett reveals the inspiration behind Dark Rey’s saber. “Clearly you've got the Darth Maul connecting but there's also a mechanical aspect to it,” Guyett said. “And don't you think she looked fantastic in that moment?”
Guyett says the “mechanical aspect” of the saber gave a great quality of “upping the ante.” “When it switches out, there's some kind of Jedi-ish or samurai sword-ish kind of feeling,” he added.
Tubach also revealed that the saber took inspiration from Kylo Ren’s. "On [Episode] VII, it was a really great design choice when we started working on Kylo's lightsaber to say, 'What almost looks like a broken light tip?' or 'What looks so angry [that] someone put it together in anger?'" he explained.
He thinks it “made sense” to take the same look from Kylo’s saber to Dark Rey’s saber. Tubach revealed that when they asked director J.J. Abrams on whether the weapon should be more of an “in-control saber” or “an angry kind of saber,” Tubach said Abrams felt like they needed to show that it’s a “dark, dark saber.” “So that look of that fiery edge and everything, we kept some of that same aspect of Kylo's saber in this one,” he added.
The Dark Rey scene is definitely one of the most epic parts of the movie that fans really enjoyed. Proving the speculations to be true, Dark Rey was a vision the heroine saw when she found the Sith Wayfinder on the Death Star wreckage. The heroine faces an image of her as a Sith and tries her best to fight off the dreadful image of her potential future.

To be released later this year, production for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is already well underway. The series will feature the return of Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, following the events of Avengers: Endgame. There has already been plenty of set photos leaked, but Stan shares one from the set himself.
Taking to Instagram, the actor posted a photo of his character in what seems to be an abandoned warehouse. The actor can’t be seen much in the photo but his silhouette seems to show that the Winter Soldier is in his new suit. You can check it out below.

There’s not much revealed in the photo though, but it looks like the cast will begin their own ways of promoting the show really soon. And while the series was announced last Summer, there still aren't many details revealed about The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’s plotline. That being said, it’s pretty much obvious that the series will follow the adventures of Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes.
Although his suit isn’t visible in the photo, fans already got a good look at Bucky’s new costume in a set photo released around a month ago. It isn’t a drastic change, but the character is sporting a brown suit with his Wakandan metal arm.

Taika Waititi made his debut in the galaxy far, far away by directing the last episode of the first season of Star Wars: The Mandalorian and also providing the voice of IG-11. The episode was generally received well by the fans and it seems like this is only the first step in his Star Wars journey.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Waititi has been “approached” to develop a Star Wars movie. The outlet says it isn’t clear as to “where things stand” in those talks, and that it’s not certain whether the said project would be separate from the one being developed by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. However, Disney and Lucasfilm had no comment about the report.
When the reports got around, Waititi took to Twitter to share a picture of an album cover of Fleetwood Mac’s Rumors, seemingly indicating that these reports are just hearsays.
Given the success of his The Mandalorian episode, as well as his blockbuster movies, six Oscar nominations, and essentially, being one of the most in-demand directors in the industry, it wouldn’t be surprising if Waititi would direct a Star Wars movie in the future.
That being said, he already has a lot of projects on his plate including his next film titled Next Goal Wins, as well as being included in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, and his highly-anticipated Thor sequel, Love and Thunder.
Fans are yet to discover the details regarding the future of the Star Wars franchise, but it is known that there are projects slated for 2022, 2024, and 2026. In addition, an Obi-Wan Kenobi series, as well as a Rogue One prequel series will also be developed under Disney+.
For now, it isn’t confirmed whether this report is true. Regardless, fans are pretty much excited to see Waititi’s take on a Star Wars film. In the meantime, you can look out for the second season of The Mandalorian which is set for release later this year.

Crisis on Infinite Earths is Arrowverse’s biggest and most ambitious crossover yet. The five-part event definitely took fans by surprise, especially with a handful of character deaths and epic cameos. And while there’s still a lot to process from the event, it looks like Crisis showrunner already has something next in mind.
In a recent interview with TV Line, Marc Guggenheim was asked if they have an idea for the next Arrowverse crossover event. “I would say I have ‘ideas’ for ideas,’” he said. “I’ve sort of pitched to [The CW CEO] Mark Pedowitz and [executive producer] Greg Berlanti what, if left to my own devices, I would like to see us do.”
Guggenheim revealed that there is a rubric “that is semi in place” and that both Pedowitz and Berlanti already signed off on that. “And as we go onward, things will get more and more specific,” he added. Guggenheim also mentioned that he emailed Pedowitz the other day, saying that they should “get in a room together” and talk about it. “We typically do a post mortem about what went right, what went wrong, what did we learn…. We always learn something.”
When asked if there’s another massive team-up event again, Guggenheim admits that he hates comparisons with Avengers: Endgame, but he mentioned the movie to make his point. “We’re working with Endgame‘s catering budget — but Marvel didn’t follow up Endgame with Endgame 2,” he said. “I think you’ve got to build on to an event of this kind.”
Guggenheim made it clear that they all agreed upon not going to go as big as Crisis next year. Guggenheim also left a tease that would surely get fans thinking. “Mark [Pedowitz] and I were talking about ‘returning to the roots’ of our crossovers,” he said. “And I’ll leave it to people to interpret what that means.”

The story of Iron Man came to a close in Avengers: Endgame when the hero sacrificed his life and did the snap to finally defeat and undo Thanos’ doings. Since then, Marvel fans have been wondering whether Robert Downey Jr. will ever make his return as Tony Stark. So when the reports about Downey making a cameo in the upcoming Black Widow movie gone around, they had high hopes that this was true. However, it looks like the actor isn’t even aware of it.
To promote his movie Dolittle, Downey sat down with co-stars Michael Sheen, John Cena, and Craig Robinson in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. “Right. Great. I mean, it would be nice if they notified me,” the actor said when asked if the fans should buckle up for his appearance on the movie. “Forewarned is forearmed.”
Downey then pointed out that people “could do anything now.” “This could be a deep fake interview for all we know,” the actor joked. Well, he essentially confirmed that he won’t be appearing in the highly-anticipated film, but there could still be a slight possibility that the actor is trying to keep it a secret. That being said, his chances of returning as Iron Man is very slim.
In a previous interview, Downey mentioned that there would have to be “a super compelling argument and a series of events” for the character’s return to make sense, but he admits that he has “hung up” his guns and that it’s “good to let it go.”
Downey’s first film post-Endgame is Dolittle which is scheduled for release on January 17.

The internet went into a frenzy when Baby Yoda was introduced in the first episode of Star Wars: The Mandalorian. By now, it’s pretty clear that everyone has fallen for the adorable yet mysterious creature, including the Star Wars creator himself.
Taking to Twitter, The Mandalorian showrunner Jon Favreau shared a photo that’ll surely get the fans excited. The image shows George Lucas cradling the Child in his arms in the set of the popular Disney+ series. You can check it out below.

It isn’t certain as to when this photo was taken since Lucas was revealed to have visited the set when they filmed the first season. With the production of Season 2 well underway, it could be possible that he went to the set once again. Regardless, the photo will definitely be cherished by Star Wars fans for years to come.
The Child seems to be much more central to the story in the second season. Based on the last episode, it looks like Mando is set out on a mission to bring him to his home planet to reunite with his own kind. Aside from getting a glimpse of his extraordinary abilities, there’s not much known about the creature yet. His name is yet to be revealed as well, and Taika Waititi even teased that the character could be female.
Star Wars: The Mandalorian Season 1 is available to stream on Disney+ and Season 2 is set to come out later this year.

The third part of the Arrowverse crossover featured the destruction of multiple earths and realities. Worried that their favorite characters didn’t survive, fans were quick to point out that there weren’t any details to show if Smallville’s Clark and Lois survived the event. Fear not, because it looks like the pair will be doing just fine.
In a recent interview with TV Line, Crisis on Infinite Earths showrunner Marc Guggenheim reveals the fate of the beloved duo. “I absolutely can confirm that they’re still alive, they’re still living their happy ending,” he said. “Clark is getting the hero’s ending he deserves.”
There you have it. For those of you who were nervous about the pair’s fate in the event could finally have some assurance that they made it through, and that they are even set to achieve a happy ending.
Anti-Monitor managed to destroy every single earth in the third installment of the crossover, leaving fans with a cliffhanger. Fortunately, the Spectre lend a hand to the heroes to bring forth a new multiverse which some heroes will now live in, including Stargirl, Doom Patrol, and the Titans. Regardless of what’s about to happen in the future, at least fans of the two characters can be assured that Lois and Clark are safe and sound.
