She enjoys reading horror and fantasy novels when she isn't writing about the different fandoms around the world.

The world is certainly on edge as everyone waits for Warner Bros. and DC to announce the new Batman who will replace Ben Affleck in Matt Reeves' upcoming film. But has the casting just been confirmed? A post from a DC head may have subtly announced who will be the new Caped Crusader.
Fans are currently freaking out over an Instagram post made by Jim Lee. It appears to be just a regular photo confirming that the DC Chief Creative Officer is currently traveling to the UAE but if you look hard enough, something truly jumps off the picture. Take a look at the post below.

Did you see it? The photo clearly shows the name Robert Pattinson in big bold letters in the lower right-hand corner. Could this be a mere coincidence or is Lee trying to tell us something that fans have been hoping to hear for some time now?
It's not an official announcement yet people are already busy looking for other hints. One fan even shared that they have seen Pattinson on the Warner Bros. lot in Los Angeles but some people have pointed out that the Twilight actor might be there for a completely different project. For now, we will have to wait for the studio to make it official.
Pattinson is not the only actor who is in the running to become the new Batman. Tolkien star Nicholas Hoult is reportedly being considered for the role as well. Either way, it's only a matter of time before we meet the new Dark Knight.

Fans are already expecting a major character to bite the dust in X-Men: Dark Phoenix. After all, the trailer for the movie pretty much gave it away, right? However, it looks like there will be more than just one beloved character who will end up dead in the film.
Director Simon Kinberg spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the intentionally spoiler-y trailer for Dark Phoenix where it is strongly implied that Mystique will be killed (albeit accidentally) by Jean Grey. Interestingly, Kinberg plainly admitted that Jennifer Lawrence's character isn't the only major death in the film.
"There are certainly other major casualties in this," he said. However, Kinberg didn't elaborate on who these "major casualties" will be.
Were there hints in the Dark Phoenix promos? There's a scene that shows Jean taking on Magneto and efficiently destroying his helmet. Additionally, a promo image features Jean using her deadly powers on a hapless victim who looks like either Cyclops or Quicksilver.
But is it possible that Dark Phoenix will effectively kill off all the main characters who were introduced in the 2011 film X-Men: First Class? There have been speculations that the movie will have to tie up loose ends and give a proper goodbye to Magneto, Professor X, and Beast.
On the other hand, these characters could still make an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe now that Disney has acquired 20th Century Fox. We're keeping our fingers crossed but also recommend not keeping your hopes up too high.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix will crash into theaters on June 7.

Marvel Studios might finally fix a little (or big) problem they had in Iron Man 3. The real Mandarin, and not just some pretender, is reportedly set to be the main villain in the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe flick Shang-Chi.
People were previously excited when it was announced that the Mandarin will be the main baddie in Iron Man 3. However, excitement turned to confusion when it was revealed that the legendary Ben Kingsley was actually playing Trevor Slattery, a British actor who was hired by the real villain Aldrich Killian (Guy Pierce) to portray a terrorist leader. Luckily, Marvel appears to be determined to fix that mistake by introducing the real Mandarin to the MCU.
The report comes from We Got This Covered, who got their intel from a source who revealed The Mandarin will be the primary antagonist in Shang-Chi. This is certainly a welcome idea for fans who are hoping to see the Master of Kung Fu go up against an equally skilled villain. However, it is important to note that the update has not yet been confirmed so we recommend taking this with a grain of salt.
The Shang-Chi film is still in its early development but already has Wonder Woman 1984's David Callaham working on the screenplay. Additionally, Short Term 12 director Destin Daniel Cretton has been confirmed to helm the MCU flick. However, the lead roles of Shang-Chi and hopefully the real Mandarin have not yet been cast. We're waiting on news about this so stay tuned for more updates.

People are probably struggling with the idea that Game of Thrones is finally over. However, fans can still enjoy one last Sunday with the HBO series. The documentary Game of Thrones: The Last Watch will air tonight and it promises an emotional final look at how the show was created.
The official documentary is directed by Jeanie Finlay and will follow the cast and crew of Game of Thrones as they work on the final season. The Last Watch "delves deep into the mud and blood to reveal the tears and triumphs involved in the challenge of bringing the fantasy world of Westeros to life in the very real studios, fields, and car-parks of Northern Ireland."
In the official trailer, we get a glimpse of the cast as they sit down for what will be their final read-through of the script together. Not surprisingly, there's a glimpse of Kit Harington trying to hold back tears and an awesome moment as the stars erupt in applause. Needless to say, it's going to be yet another emotional journey for Game of Thrones fans, this time through the eyes of the people behind the series.
The official description of The Last Watch reads as follows:
"Made with unprecedented access, Game of Thrones: The Last Watch is an up-close and personal report from the trenches of production, following the crew and the cast as they contend with extreme weather, punishing deadlines and an ever-excited fandom hungry for spoilers."
Are you ready to revisit Westeros one last time? Game of Thrones: The Last Watch will premiere on HBO on May 26.

It looks like A Quiet Place 2 has been creeping up on the rest of the world. The highly anticipated sequel to John Krasinski's 2018 horror flick has just been given an earlier release date.
People were understandably excited when it was confirmed that A Quiet Place is getting a sequel that would hit theaters in May 2020. Interestingly, Variety reports that the second movie, which is currently being written by Krasinski, has been moved up to a March 2020 premiere. This means that we'll get to know what happened to Evelyn Abbott and the children at least two months earlier.
Unfortunately, there is no hope for Krasinski to appear in the sequel. After all, his character Lee Abbott sacrificed himself to ensure his children's safety in the first film. Nevertheless, Krasinski will still direct A Quiet Place 2, which is bringing back Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, and Noah Jupe.
The premise of the sequel is still a great mystery. However, we now know that a new character will be introduced in the film. It was previously reported that Peaky Blinders star Cillian Murphy will be joining the cast as "a man with mysterious intentions who joins the family unit." Considering the Inception actor's tendency for choosing creepy roles, we're expecting Murphy to play the villain in the movie.
Of course, Murphy might not be the only cast member in A Quiet Place 2. There is a possibility that Evelyn and the Abbott kids will encounter new characters in the sequel so keep checking this page for more updates.
A Quiet Place 2 is scheduled for release on March 20, 2020.

There is little doubt that Marvel Studios is currently simmering with ideas now that Disney has successfully acquired 20th Century Fox. After all, the acquisition will give the studio the freedom to use X-Men characters in their upcoming projects. However, there is one film that Marvel appears to be shutting down. Unfortunately, it looks like Deadpool 3 is no longer happening any time soon.
A new report explored the possibilities that Marvel and Disney are considering for Deadpool. After all, they can't simply forget about Wade Wilson since the two R-rated films (and one PG-13 Christmas special) dominated the box office. MCU Cosmic states that there are three options for the studio and one of these is the highly anticipated Deadpool 3.
Unfortunately, the third Deadpool movie could be a huge problem for Marvel and Disney. There is little doubt that Ryan Reynolds will refuse to downplay the character's swearing and violent actions while Disney might not be ready to pursue an R-rated film just yet. Sadly, this could mean that the House of Mouse will have to shelf Deadpool 3 for now and launch the Merc With A Mouth in a different project.
As mentioned, there are other options for Deadpool in the future. The most exciting one is considering bringing Wade Wilson in to spice things up in Spider-Man 3. Needless to say, the idea has people talking and we're hoping that the third Spider-Man movie could introduce Deadpool to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. (Additionally, Sony might like this idea so we're betting on it).

There was a good reason why people were so excited for Star Wars: The Phantom Menace back in 1999. It's been more than a decade since the release of Return of the Jedi and fans were looking forward to the new Star Wars movie that would focus on how Darth Vader became a Sith Lord. Not surprisingly, a video taken during the film's opening night captures the excitement and first reactions to Episode I.
The video shows fans lining up for the first midnight screening of The Phantom Menace on May 19, 1999. Everyone is certainly excited as some guys are shown singing the Star Wars theme as a man dressed as Darth Maul shows off his lightsaber skills. Amusingly, Darth Vader is also waiting to watch the film and even declares that "there's no way that it's gonna be a disappointment." When the reporter asks if anyone thinks it's going to be a lousy movie, the resounding response is "No!"
So how did people react to the film? Several fans, including the guy who dressed as Darth Maul, couldn't help but praise it. Someone even pointed out that George Lucas did a great job. However, another fan stated that he deserved a public apology from the Star Wars creator because he hated The Phantom Menace.
In the end, the reporter checked with fans and found 10 people who loved it, seven who were OK with it, and two who simply hated Episode I. It's mostly positive but things would change later on as more people started seeing the movie.
What did you think of The Phantom Menace when you first watched it? Let us know in the comments below.

Daenerys Targaryen's sudden turn in Game of Thrones Season 8 may have turned her into the show's ultimate villain but that hasn't stopped fans from giving Emilia Clarke some major support. Several fans have just donated $32,000 to the actor's charity.
The Reddit community r/freefolk decided to turn all the negative reaction to Daenerys' villainous turn in the final season of Game of Thrones into a positive one for the woman who portrays the Mother of Dragons. The community started a fundraising drive that would benefit Clarke's charity SameYou, which supports brain disease survivors. It's a heartwarming move indeed with a sweet message.
"Can we collectively do something nice for Emilia? A big fundraising drive by the fans for her SameYou charity? It's clear she loved Dany so much, I want her to know we loved her too and we're so thankful for her portrayal," the post wrote.
The response to the post has truly been overwhelming. The fundraiser initially earned $5,000 in the first update but it didn't stop there. The latest update confirms that the community already raised $32,000 and could hopefully earn more as the fundraiser reaches more Game of Thrones fans.
You can contribute to the fundraiser, which goes with the hashtag #WeStandByDaenerys, on JustGiving.com. It's an awesome way to celebrate Dany as a character and supporting Clarke for her amazing performance throughout the series.
Clarke started the SameYou charity after suffering from two brain aneurysms while working on the HBO series. The Solo: A Star Wars Story actress shared her story in an emotional op-ed published by The New Yorker.

You can always trust Mark Hamill to share some entertaining stories about working on Star Wars during the early days. Interestingly, Hamill's latest tale involves an "out-of-control R2-D2" and a "poor dog."
Hamill recently shared a video of himself making an appearance on a TV show with Chewbacca, C-3PO, and R2-D2. The video, which first aired at the same time as the release of The Empire Strikes Back, shows Artoo being a little too crazy for TV. You can watch the video below.
All people see when they watch this clip is me feeding the dog, then eating from the same spoon. All I see is an out-of-control R2-D2 nearly running over that poor dog, then ramming into one of the hosts. We can't take him anywhere.? #R2D2Drunk4TV https://t.co/0MVUJxneDO— Mark Hamill (@HamillHimself) May 24, 2019
"All people see when they watch this clip is me feeding the dog, then eating from the same spoon. All I see is an out-of-control R2-D2 nearly running over that poor dog, then ramming into one of the hosts. We can't take him anywhere," Hamill wrote before adding the hashtag #R2D2Drunk4TV.
That poor dog. It appeared to be minding its own business before Artoo tried to run it over. Nevertheless, it's a lucky pup since it gets to share a spoon with Hamill.
Hamill is certainly reminiscing about the good old days when the first film was still titled Star Wars instead of A New Hope. His previous tweet celebrated the day that the movie premiered back in 1977. So in case you missed it, A New Hope turned 42 yesterday.
Although it has been a long journey for Hamill, he is currently set to return and reunite with R2-D2 later this year. The first image of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker actually shows the Jedi Master standing alongside the little droid. It's still unclear how the two will end up sharing a scene together in Episode IX but it's definitely something to look forward to this December.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters on December 20.

It looks like DC might be taking a completely different direction with its next films. A new report claims that the next big project following Joaquin Phoenix's Joker movie could be a live-action adaptation of Superman: Red Son.
DC and Warner Bros. have certainly been taking an interesting approach with its projects. For instance, the entire Joker lore appears to have been rebooted when the Clown Prince of Crime was recast in Todd Phillip's movie. But is the studio taking the same approach with Kal El? A source has reportedly told We Got This Covered that DC is interesting in developing a Superman: Red Son live-action movie.
It's certainly a curious choice but one that could make sense when considering DC's casting dilemma. There have been speculations that Henry Cavill will no longer return as Clark Kent in future DC Extended Universe flicks. By taking on Mark Millar's fan-favorite comics, the studio can easily find a new actor to take on the role.
In Red Son, Kal El ends up crashing in the 1950s Soviet Union instead of Kansas. It's a tale that takes place in the Elseworlds Universe so it could easily explain why a different actor should take on the role of the Man of Steel.
It's an interesting idea but also one that raises several questions. After all, there is currently an animated adaptation of Red Son in the works. Although we think it's a great way to introduce a new Superman storyline, it is still best to take this with a grain of salt.
DC's next film is Joker, which is scheduled for release on October 4.
