The English dub of Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 8 is finally out and fans are feeling the pain all over again. However, there's one person who actually had to go through what Connie felt in the episode's truly devastating scene. Voice actor Clifford Chapin has opened up about working on Connie's heaviest moment in the anime.
In Assassin's Bullet, Sasha was killed after Gabi shot her in the chest. Although everyone was devastated by her death, Connie is the one who is hit the hardest and his emotional reaction has left fans in tears.
Not surprisingly, Chapin had to tap into something truly deep to portray Connie's loss. In a new tweet, he revealed that his performance was brought on by the passing of fellow voice actor Brad Venable.
This last scene was really heavy to record. I channeled a lot of my feelings from @bradvenable's passing last month into it. I just hope it would have done him proud. Thanks for watching #AttackonTitanFinalSeason on #Toonami, everyone. Have a good night. pic.twitter.com/oPZtIrGQNv

Chapin's performance in the dub was truly compelling and fans were quick to congratulate and thank him for channeling his grief to properly portray Connie's loss. Needless to say, Connie should be moving forward but we're still devastated about what happened to Sasha.
Venable passed away earlier in January at the age of 43. He had previously provided the voice of Daz in Attack on Titan.
The Attack on Titan Season 4 Episode 8 dub aired on Toonami on February 28.

It looks like Bruce Campbell got exactly what he has been campaigning for. The Ash vs Evil Dead star has just teased on his cameo in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
It's no secret that Campbell has been trying to get director Sam Raimi to cast him in a special role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel. The veteran actor had been actively campaigning for a part in Doctor Strange 2 and fans loved the idea. But is it actually happening? Check out his latest tweet below.
Boy, it was a blast, working in a certain city, with a certain director on a certain movie with a certain actor - it sure was! pic.twitter.com/1q8pga0Miu— Bruce Campbell (@GroovyBruce) February 27, 2021
"Boy, it was a blast, working in a certain city, with a certain director on a certain movie with a certain actor - it sure was!" Campbell wrote.
Well, he didn't exactly reveal anything here but we already know that Campbell is currently in London, thanks to his previous tweet. We also know that Doctor Strange 2 is being filmed in the same location with Raimi and Benedict Cumberbatch. Maybe it's a different project but here's hoping Campbell finally got his dream to join the MCU.
It's not exactly impossible to see Campbell in Doctor Strange 2. After all, it's being directed by Raimi, who has regularly added Campbell in almost every movie he's worked on. That includes the Spider-Man trilogy Raimi helmed where Campbell played a different character in each film.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness with also star WandaVision actress Elizabeth Olsen, who will reprise her role as Scarlet Witch. The film is scheduled for release on March 25, 2022.

There is little doubt that people are excited about the planned Superman reboot that will reportedly cast a black actor to play the Man of Steel. However, Ray Fisher isn't particularly impressed about this and has once again fired shots at Walter Hamada. Interestingly, the tweets didn't go unnoticed as the investigator looking into the Justice League reshoots has issued a statement defending the DC Film president.
Fisher recently tweeted about the new Superman reboot where he pointed out that a Black Superman is unlikely considering that Hamada previously attempted to "destroy a Black man’s credibility."
Do ya’ll remember that time Walter Hamada and @wbpictures tried to destroy a Black man’s credibility, and publicly delegitimize a very serious investigation, with lies in the press?But hey, Black Superman...A>E— Ray Fisher (@ray8fisher) February 27, 2021
Almost immediately, investigator and former federal judge Katherine B. Forrest issued a statement as part of WarnerMedia's own statement on the issue.
"I am disappointed by continued public statements made suggesting that Walter Hamada in any way interfered with the Justice League investigation. He did not," Forrest said in her statement.
Fisher once again refused to back down and tweeted out a rebuttal. He even pointed out that making Forrest release a statement denying Hamada's interference was "purposely misleading and desperate."
As I’ve said from the start:Walter Hamada ATTEMPTED to interfere with the JL investigation.He was unsuccessful in doing so because I did not allow him to.Having the investigator make a statement claiming there was no interference is purposely misleading and desperate.A>E— Ray Fisher (@ray8fisher) February 27, 2021
It certainly looks like the investigation will have to continue with Fisher insisting that Hamada was involved in his allegations. Hopefully, the truth will be revealed soon.
Fisher had previously alleged that Joss Whedon and the Justice League producers were unprofessional while working on the reshoots. He also pointed out that Hamada had tried to interfere with the resulting investigation into the matter.
Fisher has since been removed from the upcoming The Flash movie. Nevertheless, the actor continues to speak up about the case.
Although he isn't in the upcoming DCEU flicks, Fisher returns in Zack Snyder's Justice League, which premieres on HBO Max and various streaming services worldwide on March 18.

He wasn't kidding when he said, "I'll be back." The Terminator will be returning but this time, it's in an anime series that will air on Netflix.
Netflix announced the new series which will follow the continuing battle of man against machines. Mattson Tomlin, who had previously penned the streaming giant's Project Power, has been confirmed as showrunner.
Tomlin shared his excitement about the upcoming project.
“Anyone who knows my writing knows I believe in taking big swings and going for the heart. I’m honored that Netflix and Skydance have given me the opportunity to approach Terminator in a way that breaks conventions, subverts expectations and has real guts,” Tomlin said in a statement.
Netflix Vice President of Japan & Anime John Derderian shared Tomlin's enthusiasm for the new project.
“Terminator is one of the most iconic sci-fi stories ever created—and has only grown more relevant to our world over time. The new animated series will explore this universe in a way that has never been done before. We can’t wait for fans to experience this amazing new chapter in the epic battle between machines and humans,” Derderian said.
But will the anime series feature any of the original characters from the Terminator films? For now, that has yet to be confirmed. However, there are speculations that the Netflix show will introduce new characters for a change. Nevertheless, there is a possibility that we'll still get to see the iconic robot played by Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The Terminator franchise was created by James Cameron and Gale Anne Hurd starting with the 1984 film. Since then, there have been five more movies, the latest of which is Terminator: Dark Fate. The franchise also had a live-action TV show focusing on Sarah Connor and two webseries.
The Terminator anime series has not yet been given an official release date. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.

The Defenders are once again one of the most discussed topics among Marvel fans now that the rights to the characters have reverted to Marvel Studios. So what are the chances that we'll see Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Kevin Feige has just addressed the possibility with a hopeful tease.
There is little doubt that fans were disappointed when the Marvel Netflix shows were cancelled over two years ago. On the other hand, people believed that it was a good call considering that the characters could eventually join the MCU. Now that the rights to Jessica Jones and The Punisher have reverted to Marvel, fans are expecting the entire gang to finally appear in new films and shows.
But is Marvel Studios already planning it? Marvel boss Kevin Feige was present at the Disney+ presentation at TCA (via Den of Geek). When asked if The Defenders or ABC characters will appear in the MCU, Feige stated that “we probably could do it.”
“I think a lot of that stuff comes back to us. There’s always rumors online about things reverting, sometimes that’s true, sometimes it’s not, and I’m not exactly sure of the exact contracts. But perhaps someday,” Feige said.
That's not exactly a "yes" but it's also not a "no." We're hoping that Feige and the rest of Marvel Studios would recognize the potential of bringing in Matt Murdock or Frank Castle in the MCU. For now, we'll just have to keep our fingers crossed.

There is little doubt that the Star Trek Universe continues to expand and fans are hyped up about the upcoming shows. One of these projects happens to be the Star Trek: Discovery spin-off that would focus on Section 31. So when exactly can we expect to see Michelle Yeoh's Philippa Georgiou in action again? A new update reveals it could be a long wait.
Georgiou's series was teased back in 2018 in an alternate ending of Discovery Season 2 where Mirror Georgiou is approached by an operative of Section 31. However, there were no updates about the show since then.
So what exactly is happening to Georgiou's Section 31 series? Paramount Plus programming chief Julie McNamara and Star Trek executive producer Alex Kurtzman recently told Variety the show is still in “conversations”.
“We’re very careful about curating the pacing — the number of shows at any given time — and what those shows are, so that we make sure that it’s always exciting when there’s a new track show coming out,” McNamara said.
Sadly, it sounds like Trekkies will have to wait until the other Star Trek shows are completed. Considering that Discovery and Star Trek: Picard are still in full swing and two new shows are starting production this year, we may have to sit patiently to see Georgiou again.
Georgiou was last seen in Star Trek: Discovery Season 3 where her storyline was given a proper conclusion. Nevertheless, Yeoh is still expected to reprise the role when Paramount finally gives the Section 31 series the green light.

It's been a long time since we got any updates on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. However, it looks like the wait is almost over. James Gunn has just teased on the Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel's production start date.
Gunn continues to be one of the most active celebrities on social media and he keeps answering questions from fans. Interestingly, someone reached out to him on Twitter asking if Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will begin production this year. Gunn's response is short and sweet.
Yes. https://t.co/FUCKxwAO6g— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) February 26, 2021
Of course, that doesn't reveal exactly when the third Guardians film will begin production. However, it's possible that Gunn will immediately begin working on Vol. 3 as soon as he wraps up his current project Peacemaker.
Fans have been hoping that Gunn will begin work on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 right after he wrapped up production on The Suicide Squad last year. However, the filmmaker surprised everyone by announcing that he would reunite with Suicide Squad star John Cena for the HBO Max series focusing on Cena's character.
For now, Gunn is still hard at work on Peacemaker. The series is set to finish filming by June which means Gunn would be free to work on GOTGV3 anytime from summer to the end of the year. Either way, we're happy to know that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is moving forward.
The Suicide Squad will premiere in limited theaters and on HBO Max on August 6. Peacemaker has not yet been given a release date but will be available on the streaming service by January next year. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 also does not have an official premiere date but stay tuned for updates on this story.

There is little doubt that people are curious about the upcoming Superman reboot that is currently in development at Warner Bros. But who could possibly play the new Man of Steel? A new report reveals that Michael B. Jordan is being eyed to lead the highly anticipated project.
Giant Freakin' Robot reports that Warner Bros. is currently pursuing Jordan to star in the Superman reboot that will be helmed by J.J. Abrams and written by Ta-Nehisi Coates. If the Black Panther actor signs up for the project, he will be the first Black Superman in cinematic history and would replace Henry Cavill as DCEU's current Man of Steel.
This isn't exactly the first time that Jordan has been connected to a possible Superman film. Back in 2019, the former Fantastic Four star had admitted that he would be interested in playing the Man of Steel. However, it would be on his own terms.
"I would rather do something original," Jordan told Oprah Winfrey in a 2019 interview. "I'll be Calvin Ellis."
In the comics, Calvin is the Superman of Earth-23 and yes, he is black. The character was actually inspired by former president Barack Obama.
So is it possible that Jordan will be more than just the new actor who plays Superman? Jordan had previously pitched the Black Superman project although it didn't get far. Perhaps the world is finally ready for a Black Superman.
What do you think of Jordan playing DCEU's new Black Superman? Sound off in the comments below.

We can't believe this is happening but we're finally down to the last episode of WandaVision. But what can we expect in the series finale? The official runtime for WandaVision Episode 9 has just been revealed and we also have our first look at the final episode as the family prepares for battle.
Reddit user u/Plenty_Echidna_544 has once again confirmed the runtime for the next episode of WandaVision. According to the Redditor, WandaVision Episode 9 will be 50 minutes long. That's at least three minutes longer than the previous episode.
Although it's awesome to know that the series finale will be the longest episode of WandaVision, it's important to remember that the runtime includes the credits. With that in mind, we're expecting around 45 minutes of the actual episode that will wrap up the show's story.
So what can we look forward to in the WandaVision series finale? The first still from Episode 9 features Wanda reuniting with Vision as well as the twins Billy and Tommy. The awesome photo shows the family in a fighting stance as if they're preparing to fight someone, presumably Agatha Harkness or the new Vision.
Fans have already been worried that Vision will not reconcile with Wanda after he learned what has been happening in Westview. However, it looks like the couple, along with their superpowered kids, will be facing off against whoever is trying to destroy their happy home.
Are you ready for the final episode of WandaVision? Episode 9 will premiere on Disney+ on March 5.

The saddest thing about the new Marvel Cinematic Universe releases is that they don't have any cameos from the late Stan Lee. However, that hasn't stopped WandaVision from paying tribute to the Marvel icon. The latest episode of the MCU series featured an awesome Easter Egg that honors Stan the Man.
WandaVision Episode 8 had several major revelations about Wanda Maximoff including the truth about what happened to her family in Sokovia and how she got her powers from the Mind Stone. However, the most heartbreaking reveal followed Wanda as she drives into Westview to visit the lot Vision had purchased for them to build a home on.
Although Wanda's jaw-dropping release of power that created the Hex around Westview was something that people can't stop talking about, some people noticed something awesome about her car's license plate. Although it appeared to be a perfectly normal plate, it also featured the word "Excelsior."
Marvel fans are familiar with the word considering that it was Lee's signature catchphrase. Although it was barely visible in the shot, there is little doubt that WandaVision producers expected fans to find the Easter Egg in Episode 8.
This isn't the first time that WandaVision paid tribute to Lee. In Episode 7, Wanda's license plate also featured the numbers 122822, which is Lee's birthdate (December 28, 1922).
WandaVision is now down to its final episode but we're hoping we'll get another awesome tribute to Stan the Man.
The final episode of WandaVision will air on Disney+ on March 5.
