The Black Lotus, arguably the most sought after card in Magic: The Gathering just sold at auction again…this time for $540,000. The Black Lotus card has been topping its own record each time it's gone up for auction. In 2019, a Black Lotus sold for $166,000 on eBay, followed by another purchase just two years later in 2021 for $511,100. Now, with the recent auction the Black Lotus cements its position as the most expensive Magic: The Gathering card ever sold…that is until the One Ring is released.


I have to be careful with this one just in case you’re not caught up with the new season of the Mandalorian. Back in The Rise of Skywalker we saw that thru machinery and cloning the sith had basically brought Palpatine back from the dead. It also showed that Snoke was nothing more than a lab creation. So…how did they do all that? Questions are starting to get answered as the Mandalorian explores the history of the empires sinister science program. New episode tonight.


Netflix’s Gears of War movie is a step closer to reality. Jon Spaihts has been tapped to write it. If you’re not sure who Jon Spaihts is..he wrote 2016's Doctor Strange, 2021's Dune, and the upcoming Dune: Part 2, 2012's Prometheus and 2016's Passengers. No word on the cast yet but Dave Bautista has thrown his hat in the ring saying that Marcus Fenix would be a dream role for him. He even posted a video of himself in Gears of War armor, with the text, "I can't make this any easier."

There are a ton of rumor floating around about why Henry Cavil left The Witcher series. But what we’re hearing now is that he had a falling out with showrunner Lauren Hissrich over creative differences. Apparently season three deviates even more from the books than the previous seasons, and Cavill wasn’t happy about it saying it’s not what fans want. Producers and showrunners say they’re excited to explore different stories. As a fan I’d like to see them stick closer to the source material.


It’s been 10 years since LEGO has put out anything Indiana Jones, and that’s about to change.

I know we’re only a couple episodes into the new season of the Mandalorian so I don’t want to do any big recaps or dig in too much just incase you’re not caught up but wow…Mythosaurus. That’s a cool twist. It was said that the Mythosaurus roamed Mandalore tens of thousands of years ago, and has been and still is an important symbol to all Mandalorians. Hopefully we’ll get more with a new episode out today.


After a few missteps in the last few months the gang at Wizards of the Coast have done something cool. They’ve added the characters from Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves as NPC’s to D&D Beyond. Stat blocks….everything you need to add then to your campaign.  Just log into your D&D Beyond account..all 7 characters from the movie as there and ready to be played.


Fans were excited to see that Charlie Cox is putting the uniform on again and reprising his role as Daredevil for the new series Daredevil: Born Again, and it looks like some other favorites are joining him.

Surely no foe from any universe would dare stand against such a force? Mephisto dares, as the full extent of his plan finally comes into shocking focus.

So many Kangs, so little time. But actually all the time in the universe. If you’ve seen Ant Man and the Wasp: Quantumania you know what I mean. The time of Kang has come to the MCU filling the void left by Thanos’ death, and while Kang is a little OP (over powered) it’ll take a bunch of him, across many universes and timelines, to give the growing number of Marvel heroes a proper run for their money. Phase Five of the MCU  just began and we’ve already met several Kangs.


  • He Who Remains from Loki
  • Exile Kang the main Kang from Ant Man and the Wasp: Quantumania
  • Prime Kang….at the end of Quantumania…possibly
  • And at the end of the movie we see the Council of Kangs…all 19 million of them


Avengers: The Kang Dynasty won’t come out until May 2025, so that’s plenty of time for even more Kangs!


Now that James Gunn has taken over DC we kind of started looking for a new Superman…Batman, but what we’re getting is very different after Gunn announced he’s doing a movie based on The Authority. So who’s the authority? They fist showed up in comic in the 90’s. They’re a group of superheroes who are a little more hardcore than the justice league. Just like the JLA, there were 7 core members. Apollo and Midnighter were counterparts to Superman and Batman. Swift is winged warrior similar to Hawkgirl. The Doctor is a mystic, and an even trippier version of Dr. Strange. The Engineer is a bit like Iron Man, with a side of the X-Men’s Colossus. Jack Hawksmoor is possibly the one truly unique member, a character who drew his strength and power from the energy of different cities. The team’s leader, Jenny Sparks, is an edgier version of Captain Britain, with electrical powers. But unlike their DC and Marvel Universe counterparts, the Authority really only follow one authority—their own.


FromSoftware has officially announced Shadow of the Erdtree, an upcoming DLC expansion for Elden Ring. They confirmed that the DLC (downloadable content) is currently in development, so as of right now we don’t have a release date.



  • Detective Comics #1069 GOTHAM NOCTURNE, ACT I - PART IV: GRAND DESIGN / ABSOLUTE, PART 1 OF 3 Batman investigates the frozen Azmer that Mr. Freeze gave him, and makes a huge discovery about the ancient demons. Meanwhile, Azmer begin to pour into Gotham’s streets, controlling helpless people and those poor souls the city cares not for…all to do the Orghams’ bidding. Then, in the backup story, what kind of deal have the Orghams struck with Mr. Freeze, and is he also controlled by an Azmer?
  • Venom #17 TEMPTATION - BEDLAM AND BEYOND! Eddie Brock has faced down many monsters in his time, but few have been as terrifying as the one born of his own rage called BEDLAM! In this issue, witness Bedlam’s return to the Garden of Time, and see what’s become of Eddie Brock after DARK WEB!

Can they escape before the Outer Circle completes its takeover of Manhattan—and acquires a weapon that could change the course of history? No matter what, one of them won’t make it out alive…

Christopher Nolan had two simple rules for The Dark Knight's Batman: "No guns; No killing." Zack Snyder didn't take that same approach, and fans felt this went against Batman's traditional code. One cut scene in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice could have taken that to an entirely new level. In the extended "Save Martha" sequence, Batman was taking fire from a group of henchmen. To protect himself, he grabs one of the henchmen and uses him as a human shield. Though he's not actively killing the man, he's showing clear apathy toward the lives of his enemies. Ultimately, the scene was cut. The studio may have felt it was just a little too controversial. Matt Reeves version played by Robert Pattinson  is here to stay in a standalone series, so fans will continue to get their fill of the anti-murderous Dark Knight. But DC Studios recently announced the upcoming Batman movie The Brave and the Bold, complete with a brand new Batman and a brand new moral compass.


So last week, Chris Cocks, CEO of Hasbro spoke and said they may have misfired on changing their OGL regarding Wizards of the Coast and Dungeons and Dragons and that they’re making changes. And in true CEO fashion he didn’t really say what those changes were but he did say that they’re working collaboratively with the D&D community, gathering feedback and have course corrected.


Like it or not Liam Helmsworth will be Geralt of Rivia in season 4 of The Witcher and fans have been wonder what will Helmsworth look like. And now another fan has used DeepFake technology putting Liam’s face over footage of Henry Cavill. If this is what he’s reall gonna look like, I can get behind it. The sticking point for me may be the voice. We’re so used to Henry…who’s voice is similar to Geralt in the videos games.


Take a look at the DeepFake video here:

Fans are still unhappy about Netflix’s plans for the Witcher series. We know that Liam Helmsworth will be replacing Henry Cavill in season 4, but there’s a thread going around online about missed opportunities. One of those suggest that Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen would have been a better choice for Geralt, possibly even better than Henry Cavill. Anyway, Witcher fans are still not okay with Netflix choosing Liam Hemsworth saying it’ll turn the series into a "parody of itself," and many have already vowed to boycott Season 3 before it even premieres on Netflix this summer.


In The Falcon and the Winter Soldier we finally saw Sam Wilson accept the role of the new Captain America and now Anthony Mackie is ready to lead the franchise into the future with the MCU’s fourth standalone Captain America film…Captain America: New World Order. Harrison Ford is taking on the role of General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross. In fact, that’s President General Ross. So in this film we’ll get a dynamic between Captain America and the president of the United States in a way that is just incredible. And remember, Sam Wilson’s Captain America isn’t a superhero, he doesn’t have a super serum, so his superpower is his humanity. Captain America: New World Order will hit theaters on May 3, 2024. 

The first Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 3 trailer finally dropped, giving us our first look at the High Evolutionary. So who is this guy? We first heard of him in 1966’s Thor #133. With Galactus planning deep space destruction as always, Thor is looking for Jane Foster. It’s on his search that he comes across Mount Wundagore, the High Evolutionary, and his New Men.


His human name was Herbert Edgar Wyndham and he was a successful scientist. As a child Herbert became obsessed with genetics and the possibility of “evolving” creatures. But it wasn’t until he had an encounter with a strange man—who later turned out to be a rogue Inhuman—who showed him how to “crack the genetic code” that Herbert made his dreams a reality. His experiments made him an outcast so he moved to Mount Wundagore where he built his futuristic home and began to evolve animals, creating a series of humanoid beasts known as the New Men.

It’s not a big secret, it’s been all over social media for a while, but LEGO just posted another teaser of their LEGO Lord of the Rings set…which should be fully revealed soon. In the teaser, on LEGO’s Twitter page, you can see part of the set from the reflection in the one ring that has been dropped by a minifigure.


I mentioned this yesterday, but because the Super Bowl is on Sunday, HBO is going to release the next episode of The Last of Us on Friday, and since we’re talking shows based on video games…One of the best video games every made was Resident Evil 4…and now Leon is back on a mission to rescue Dr. Antonio Taylor from kidnappers, while Chris Redfield is investigating a zombie outbreak in San Francisco. Resident Evil: Death Island is a new CG animated film based on the hugely popular game series and is a sequel to Resident Evil: Vendetta.

Since Henry Cavill made the announcement that he won’t be coming back as Geralt of Rivia in season 4 of The Witcher fans have wondered what his replacement, Liam Helmsworth could look like. Well, there’s a video floating around the internet where they used DeepFake technology to put Helmsworth’s face on Cavill in a scene from the Witcher…and he looks really good. Helmsworth will make his official debut as Geralt in season 4. We still get one more season of Cavill, they filmed season 3 before he left the show.

Paramount Pictures just released a new trailer for Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves,   Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Regé-Jean Page, Justice Smith…Hugh Grant. They wanted the script to include things D&D fans would appreciate yet tell a story that a newcomer could enjoy too.  The movie is scheduled to hit US theaters on March 31 — the same month as Creed III, Scream VI, Shazam! Fury of the Gods, and John Wick: Chapter 4.

Now, will all the controversy over Wizards of the Cost and the whole Open Game License controversy that’s going on now effect the movie goers? Who knows. Wizards has backtracked on some of their proposed changes but a huge chunk of the RPG community is still unhappy, condemning Wizards…calling them greedy.


In just a couple of months, we're going to witness Shazam's next journey in DC’s Shazam! Fury of the Gods. Zachary Levi back but it’s still unsure whether he’ll continue on in the new DCU under James Gunn. The movie was already moving along when Gunn took the top spot at DC. You look at the first post-credits scene and you have Shazam being recruited into the Justice Society of America. Shazam! Fury of the Gods is set to release in theaters on March 17.


Apparently it's not enough to just watch The Last of Us — viewers want to play, too. As The Last of Us made its debut on HBO, there was a huge jump in sales on PlayStation 4’s and 5’s.  In factthe game's 2022 PS5 remake, The Last of Us Part 1, reentered the sales charts at the No. 20 spot after a 238% jump in sales and that’s the physical game. The number of viewers who rushed to play Joel and Ellie's story through PlayStation's digital storefront remain an unknown.  Is it a hit? Well the first episode broke records over at HBO, with more than 4.7 million viewers watching the premiere. That makes the video game adaptation HBO's second-best debut in the last decade, only beaten by House of the Dragon.

Lego is joining in on Dungeons & Dragons’ 50th anniversary celebration with a new set. The fan-made design’s been accepted into the Lego Ideas program, and will now enter into development to become a retail product. No launch date or pricing was included in the announcement. The multi-level, highly vertical scene is playable from 360 degrees and includes a party of five minifigs, a dragon, and a beholder, and according to the designer, landmarks include The Witches Tower, The Tavern, The Dungeon, and The Crypt.


You know that futuristic city we saw in the trailers for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Looks like it’s the city of Chronopolis. In the comics, Kang the Conqueror ruled this kingdom which is located outside of time. It appeared mainly in comics published during the ‘90s. Judging from the trailers, the city contains highly advanced technology, likely from Kang’s origin point in the far future and clearly Janet van Dyne is very familiar with it. In the comics Chronopolis first appeared in 1992’s Captain America Annual #11. The the city’s was a circle and inside it’s full of different time periods that Kang had conquered. We first saw hints of Chronopolis in in Ant-Man and the Wasp. It’s hard to make out, but you get a glimpse of the domed city. How’s it all going to play out? We’ll have to wait for the movie.


While some things have changed over the years, D&D has always enjoyed a massive slice of the market, and its 5th edition (now almost a decade old) has seen the largest boom of popularity. Late last year, when Wizards of the Coast announced the follow-up to 5e, titled "One D&D," some fans worried that Wizards would change their approach to licensing third-party D&D content in order to drive more money to parent company Hasbro. Until now third-party companies have been allowed to create modules, monsters, and other unofficial content for D&D without paying a licensing fee, but that may be changing. In the new open game license Wizards has placed new restrictions on third-party content, and required companies to pay Wizards of the Coast 25% royalties on all revenue past the $750,000-per-year mark. As you can imaging creators aren’t happy.

Out of all the Avengers, Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk is the only member we have yet to see a solo film or show about. However, new rumors are bouncing around Mark Ruffalo will be getting his own Hulk film, as well as the return of an old The Incredible Hulk cast member , Liv Tyler as Betty Ross. Rumors says that among the many upcoming Marvel films and TV shows, World War Hulk should be one of them. While there are little to no details yet on the film yet.

HBO’s long-anticipated adaptation of the Last of Us is set to hit HBO in a few days and just like any adaptation producers have taken some liberties with the story. If you’re a fan of the game some things will be pretty close while others completely different.  If you’re not familiar The Last of Us takes place in a world where a species of cordyceps fungus mutates and gains the ability to infect human beings. In the game, the infection reaches critical mass on September 26, 2013, a.k.a. “Outbreak Day.”  In the show Outbreak Day occurs in 2003. The main events of The Last of Us occur 20 years after Outbreak Day. In the game, things took place in 2033; however, the show changing the outbreak to 2003 means these events will take place in 2023 when the United States is run down with reduced local governments, starvation, and desolation. The Last of Us cinches on hope and possibility with the promise of a cure.

While it’s sad that CW's The Flash is coming to an end with its upcoming ninth season, it should be a pretty awesome final season.  David Ramsey, Keiynan Lonsdale, and Sendhil Ramamurthy are all coming back as John Diggle/Spartan, Wally West/Kid Flash, and Ramsey Rosso/Bloodwork.  So, get ready for a very emotional reunion as John Diggle aka Spartan helps protect Central City alongside Team Flash one, last time. Keiynan  showcases a side of Wally West you’ve never seen before, and Ramsey will play a big part in Flash’s final race. Showrunners say everything came together and this will be the Flash’s wildest and most emotional adventures yet.”


For those of you hoping that Sarah Michelle Gellar might pick up the vampire killing stake of Buffy Summers once more….nope. She was doing an interview promoting the series Wolf Pack and told the magazine that fans shouldn’t hold their breath that she would ever return for a Buffy the Vampire Slayer reboot series or a reunion.

Dungeons and Dragons came to live in 1974, that means we’re approaching it’s 50th anniversary. What better time to look back at the creation of the franchise. Joe Manganiello is set to co-direct a D&D documentary. Manganiello is the perfect candidate. He’s a D&D ambassador, he runs a D&D game of his own and recently kickstarted the tabletop RPG augmented reality app ARcana.

It’s been over a year since wecaught up with Mark Grayson and his superpowered allies in Amazon’s Invincible. But thankfully, we don’t have to wait much longer. During a recent interview, Amazon head of television guy Vernon Sanders confirmed that Invincible season 2 will officially debut on the platform sometime in the coming months.


Disney gave us a quick sneak peak at what what we’re looking at in 2023. They released a sizzle reel with scenes from “Loki” season two, “Star Wars: Ahsoka”, and the Marvel’s “Secret Invasion”.


  • Secret Invasion: You can’t quite tell who’s a Skrull and who isn’t, but it’s obvious that something has Nick Fury stressed.
  • Loki: Tom Hiddleston, Owen Wilson, and the rest of the Time Variance Authority look a little less stressed, as they are all dressed up in suit and tie in the shots we see of them.
  • “Star Wars: Ahsoka” will continue Ahsoka’s story, picking up from “The Mandalorian”. Hayden Christensen also is expected to reprise his role as Anakin Skywalker.


And although it may seem like season one just aired, things are already ramping up on season two of The Rings of Power. The Rings of Power finished season one on a few very dramatic notes, setting the stage for season two. Halbrand revealed himself to be Sauron in disguise, and when we last saw him he was walking into Mordor. Meanwhile, Galadriel, Elrond, and Celebrimbor formed the elven Rings of Power even though they know the idea came from a source of evil. Although we don’t know much about season two, watchers are thinking these two major events will create the driving force for everything to come.

This movie will feature two new factions of Transformers: the Maximals and the Terrorcons. The trailer gets right to it with a shot of Optimus Primal leaping into the scene and beating its chest like King Kong. Though unconfirmed by the trailer, it's likely that the Maximals have come from the future with Primal warning Optimus Prime of impending danger from the past and future.

Microsoft announced it is raising the price of its major first-party Xbox games built for Xbox Series X|S from $60 to $70 in 2023. Forza Motorsport, Redfall, and Starfield will cost $69.99 when they launch next year.

It’s no big secret, but the previous Dungeons and Dragons movies haven’t been…great. But this new one, Dungeons & Dragons Honor Among Thieves looks good. A new trailer was released a few days ago.  The movie stars Chris Pine, Hugh Grant and Michelle Rodriguez - and the teaser trailer is out now. Featuring Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love" behind several battle scenes, the film has the look and feel of a Marvel movie - but is based solidly in the Dungeons & Dragons franchise.

Here’s everything we know about the upcoming continuation of The Jokes sequel, which also stars Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn. The official title for Todd Phillips’ sequel is Joker: Folie à Deux. Which means, in French, “Joker: Shared Madness.” Right now, we don’t know much about plot other than it will feature the Joker and Harley Quinn together. But, we can expect something a little different this time as this film is set to be a musical.. Given that the first film drew inspiration from Martin Scorsese’s early films like Taxi Driver and The King of Comedy, with this one being a musical, many think it will reflect Scorsese’s film New York, New York.

The rest of the episodes will be released weekly through January 11. So, here’s what you get: “The story began with an aspiring magician from a Nelwyn village and an infant girl destined to unite the realms, who together helped destroy an evil queen and banish the forces of darkness.

So last week we talked about Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, the two newest games in the franchise. Which apparently fall short when it comes to game play. The framerate is all over the place, it get excruciatingly low. Everything has a weird blur, Pokémon clip in and out of walls and weird angles, sometimes a glitch will give you a screen full of video gamey void, there’s lag and some have even had the game crash. Word is that these are by far the worst running games ever. And that includes installing the day one patch.


A little sad news in the geek world, Jason Frank, the original Green Power Ranger passed away last weekend. So far no statement about a cause of death. He was only 49


I don’t want to spoil anything, so if you have finished Andor on Disney + yet plug your ears. Did you catch the after credit scene after the finale? Those big things that Cassian and the other prisoners on Narkina 5 were making were parts to the laser array of the Death Star

The Duffer Brothers recently teased what we can expect from Stranger Things 5.  Season Five will be a culmination of all the seasons, so it’s got a little bit from each. Before, each season was distinct…Season 3 had big monsters, Season 4 was the psychological horror. Five will be a culmination of all the seasons. The Duffer Brothers say they’re trying to do go back to the beginning a little bit, in sort of the tone of Season 1. We also know that Season 5 will be shorter than 4 with 8 episodes, and they’ll be returning to where it all began. The whole season will take place in Hawkins.


We’re getting a new Pokemon game just in time for the holidays. Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. The new games are set in the region of Paldea, a place that seems to be based on the real-world Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe. Unlike other Pokemon games there will be 3 endings to this game that you can choose from, the victory road path which is just like all the other games. Another is the path of legends where you look for items and have to battle titan pokemon to get them, and finally Starfall street, where you battle with the group of bad guys in the game and eventually face off against the big bad boss. Another big change is Terastilizing, it takes the original one or two types of a pokemon and adds a 2nd or 3rd type of your choice.

Gamers everywhere are digging into God of War Ragnarok today, the follow up to the 2018 reboot of the franchise. But if you’re new to God of War I’ve put together a few spoiler free tips to help you get started.

  • 1 - The heavy throw on your Leviathan Axe is extremely strong, it’ll freeze weaker enemies in place allowing you to use other attack to deal more damage. Don’t forget the light throw either, hitting the enemies legs disables them for a bit allowing you do again, do more damage.
  • 2 - The Hyperian Pulse Kill on the Blades of Chaos is easily one of the most universally usefull skills in the game and when you’re using them always look for air combo opportunities.
  • 3- And don’t neglect your fists, they’re essentially a 3rd weapon and are good a building up stun damage.


Hopefully that helps you get started causing chaos thru the 9 realms.


Shawn Levy, you may not know the name, but he’s directed 10 episodes of Stranger Things, he’s done The Adam Project, Free Guy, Night at the Museum, Real Steel and a bunch more. He’s set to direct the new Deadpool movie (Deadpool 3) and when he’s done with that it looks like he’s set to direct a new Star Wars film.  We don’t know much yet..plot, timeline, characters, or even a date…but we do know that 2019’s Rise of Skywalker is no longer the last time we’ve seen a galaxy far, far away on the big screen.


It looks like some early Black Friday deals are popping up in the Pokemon world. Cards for the trading card game are being discounted at a bunch of stores including Walmart.  Like right now you can get the Darkrai VSTAR Premium Collection Box for $20. That’s a $20 discount. And that’s just one of the deals.

A couple days ago I was in the CFX Morning Research Room, and the talk turned into a debate over the best final bosses in video games. So after some..heated…discussion, this is what we came up with.


  • #3 Ganondorf – The Legend of Zelda: Wind Walker.  Link and Ganon have battled before, but for the first time in Zelda history, Ganondorf has a personality. And the battle itself is pretty spectacular.


  • #2 Sans – Undertale  Depending on your actions you get a different final boss and each is unique in it own way. I went thru and killed every monster I could find in the underground which led me to Sans the skeleton. If you survive his opening salvo, he breaks the 4th wall to taunt you and even bends the rules. It’s a brilliant battle.


  • #1 The Boss – Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater  This one is mechanically and thematically difficult. Turns your training against you. And if you do eventually beat her, you end up standing over the only woman you have ever loved as you’re forced to finish the job.



Star Wars has returned to Fortnite for Skywalker Week. Luke, Leia, and Han are back. So you can take up Luke’s lightsaber, the landspeeder, stormtrooper blasters.  It’ll all be available until the 8th.


So, what’s being billed as one of the best Marvel Movies ever made, Wakanda Forever, come’s out in a week. And if you want to get caught up on all things Black Panther I’ve put together a must read list of Black Panther comics.

That’ll get you a good start on Black Panther before the movie comes out.

So, the last episode of House of Dragons, poor luccerys velayron shows up at storms end to gain support from the baratheons. Unfortunately his cousin Aemond beat him to it. There’s talk, a rejection, a goodbye, and a hold on a second when Aemond pulls off his eye patch revealing a sapphire in place of the eye he lost as a kid. Little forshadowing…that sapphire eye looks a lot like the eyes of the Night King from Game of Thrones.  So assuming this isn't just an accident, what does it mean? Will there end up being some connection to Aemond and the land beyond the Wall?  probably not. We doubt it'll be that literal. If we had to guess, though, we'd say that Aemond's sapphire eye serves two purposes: 1) To emphasise that Aemond is now a cold-hearted monster, capable of terrorising his younger relatives with minimal remorse, and 2) To draw even more attention to the Song of Ice and Fire prophecy that's been hanging over Season 1 like a shadow.



New “Ant Man & The Wasp: Quantumania” Trailer Reveals New Villain - The new trailer for “Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania” shows off the new head villain in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but he’s not unexpected.

I know we’re going to talk more about it with Emily from the Celebration Cinema on Friday, but the early reviews that I’m seeing for Black Adam aren’t good. Critics are calling it overindulgent.

Well it looks like Princess Cirilla of Cintra, Freya Allan, has joined the case. No details on her role in the movie yet, but we do know she’ll be playing a human and not and ape. Production starts next month.


Harrison Ford, in the MCU? Maybe. Rumor around the geek world is that Harrison Ford will take over as General Ross in the upcoming Marvel Thunderbolts movie now that William Hurt has passed away. Nothing official has been announced yet but people think that’s because filming probably won’t start until sometime next year and Marvel/Disney didn’t want to take anything away from Ford’s return in the upcoming Indiana Jones 5.

He made the official announcement last week, but after 45 years of voicing one of the most iconic villains ever, 91 year old James Earl Jones has signed over the rights to the voice of Darth Vader. What filmmakers are going to do now is use Respeecher; they’re a company that uses old recordings and fancy computer artificial intelligence to create voices.

If you’re all caught up on House of the Dragon great, if not…there may be some spoilers, but in episode 3 they kind of rectified George R.R. Martin’s biggest Game of Thrones Regret. So basically Martin said in season 1 when they go hunting, Robert Baratheon goes off in the woods, we get word he’s gored by a boar, they bring him back and he dies.  Martin regrets not doing whole royal hunting party thing with hundreds of guys, pavilions, huntsmen, dogs barking, horns blowing…that’s how a king goes hunting. So in episode 3 of House of the Dragon we get a big royal hunt which had everything Martin wanted and more. We even had a wild boar.

Witcher fans get ready. They just finished filming season 3 which apparently has a big scene between Geralt and Vilgefortz and an unexpected encounter with Rience (who’s been recast for season 3).  So right now it’s in post-production for a 2023 release while the live-action prequel The Witcher: Blood Origin is looking at a Christmas 2022 release.

We got a lot of cool info out of this year’s D23 Expo, the one thing that I thought was awesome is that we got the lineup for the upcoming Thunderbolts movie. If you’re not a Marvel comic fan, the Thunderbolts are a hero group, like the Avengers, but it’s mostly made up of reformed supervillains. We’re gonna get Contessa Valentina Allegra de la Fontaine, Ghost, Red Guardian, Yelena Bolova, Bucky (the Winter Soldier), US Agent, and Taskmaster. The Thunderbolts movie is supposed to close Phase 5 of the MCU with a July 2024 release date.

The DC universe is still struggling to find their Kevin Feige (the guy who basically built the MCU). Word is, Dan Lin and Warner Brothers Discovery have decided to not move forward with each other. WB’s looking for someone to give their DC movie universe a reset. Individually the movies have done well, but there’s no real DC Universe…no DC identity like we’ve seen in Marvel. On top of that, they’re still dealing with the fallout of the merger between WB and Discovery which caused them to cancel the Batgirl movie, and a bunch of animated shows. They’re hoping to get a little boost with Black Adam which releases at the end of October.


If you can hold out that long, Dungeons and Dragons is releasing a Deluxe Edition of Dragonlance, Shadow of the Dragon Queen in early December. You get Shadow of the Dragon Queen adventure book with a foil cover, a digital copy of Shadow of the Dragon Queen with two weeks early access on D&D Beyond, and Warriors of Krynn co-op mass-battle game.


I can’t believe I missed this, but I was re-watching last weeks She-Hulk…when Jen was leaving the prison, one of the reporters asked her if she got her super powers from a mob hit gone wrong. That is a reference to her actual comic book origins in 1980 Savage She-Hulk #1. In the comic she’s mortally wounded by mobsters who were trying to get to her client. She gets a blood transfusion from Bruce (Bruce Banner….the Hulk) which saves her life, but also gives her hulk powers in return.

Middle-earth seems to be all around us these days. Amazon’s new show The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power debuts in a few days and last week, Wizards of the Coast announced their newest Magic: The Gathering collection’s Tolkien tie-in. Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle Earth. The card sets will be available next year, but if you want a sneek peek at some of the artwork it’s online and it’s amazing.


Since we’re talking Lord of the Rings I’m going to give you a history lesson before Rings of Power hits Amazon. The land of Middle-Earth is part of a larger world called Arda who’s recorded history is separated into four Ages, each of which spans many hundreds or thousands of years. We get a glimpse into the 2nd age in the Lord of the Rings movies. The 2nd age starts in the aftermath of a war over some mystical jewels and Morgoth’s banishment from Arda. In the 2nd age, Sauron starts consolidating his power and filling the void left by Morgoth’s banishment. He manipulates the elves into creating the rings of power. There’s an invasion of the Undying Lands that ends up cutting them off from the rest of the world forever denying man the chance at immortality. King Elendil creates the kingdoms of Gondor and Arnor. He and his sons including Isildur, and the Elven kings including Elrond form the Last Alliance and end up waging war against Sauron, who is defeated but not destroyed, Isildur claims the ring and the 2nd age makes way for the 3rd…which are the movies we know.  During Amazon’s Lord of the Rings: the Rings of Power we’ll dig a lot deeper into the 2nd age and all those events that lead up to the creation of the rings and Sauron’s rise to power.


If you’ve already watched the 2nd episode of She-Hulk and you’re wondering about Blonsky’s little haiku book, wonder no more. Marvel has released three of them online including the one that Blonsky started to recite to Jennifer before she cut him off. You can check them out on the officials She-Hulk twitter page @SheHulkOfficial


While Blonsky does seem sorry for his past actions, his little cage match with Wong, a crossover from Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings may put a damper on his plans for parole.

So we’re about a month away from Andor on Disney +, which will be a prequel to Rogue One following Cassian Andor during the 5 years before the movie. They’ll release the first 3 episodes on September 21st. The rest of the episodes will be released weekly thru November 23rd.  A 2nd season is in development that will lead into the events of Rogue One.


Remember that movie Killer Klowns from Outer Space? Came out in 1988… A group alien Klowns came to Earth to eat everyone…well they just announced at GamesCon that they’re making it into a video game. It’ll be a 3v7 multi player format where humans face off against the Killer Klowns and should be out in early 2023.


And if you haven’t seen it yet, the Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power official trailer is all over the internet now. We get to see elven vistas, underground dwarven cities, orcs and goblins tearing through the woods all in a Middle Earth we’ve never seen on screen before.  The Rings of Power hits Amazon next week.


Some other TV shows..She Hulk, better than I expected, Sandman on Netflix, actually pretty good except for that weird cat dream bonus episode thing, and House of the Dragon I’m going to give another week or two before chiming in.

Back in 2019 there were rumors that Disney was going to make a live action Dragon Ball movie. They had bought Fox which gave them the movie rights for a live action Dragon Ball. So, is it going to happen? Nobody’s saying yes or no at this point but what I found out was that even though they bought Dragon Ball, Disney still needs Akira Toriyama’s approval to make the movie. In the meantime, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero opens in theaters this weekend.  

“The Red Ribbon Army was once destroyed by Son Goku. Individuals, who carry on its spirit, have created the ultimate Androids, Gamma 1 and Gamma 2. These two Androids call themselves “Super Heroes”. They start attacking Piccolo and Gohan… What is the New Red Ribbon Army’s objective?”


I watched a trailer/teaser yesterday for God of War Ragnarok yesterday. It combines two of my favorite things, Norse mythology and the God of War game franchise. The game releases November 9th, but you can pre-order right now.


Wizards Presents 2022 goes live online tomorrow at 5. We’ll get a look at what’s to come in 2022 for D&D, Magic the Gathering, and I heard that we may get more details from Universe Beyond which will see crossovers with Lord of the Rings, Warhammer, and a bunch more.

Hulu and 20th Century Studios are celebrating. Prey, the Predator prequel, is the most popular Hulu premiere of all time breaking Hulu’s record for the most-watched premiere for a single release. On the other side, fans are questioning the decision to release straight to streaming and bypassing a theatrical release because 1. The movie is now an official entry in the Predator franchise, and 2. Fans are calling it one of the best Predator movies ever made.


DC fans have had a few rough months. The news that Warner Brothers Discovery has shelved the Batgirl movie is just the latest in a series of changes and cancellations involving big DC projects. WBD says their just doing a little house cleaning to help cut costs following their very expensive merger.

Just a couple of the project affected:

  • Batgirl – cancelled
  • Strange Adventures – cancelled
  • The Wonder Twins – cancelled
  • Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom – pushed to 2023


Gamers are going to have to wait a little longer for Marvel’s Midnight Suns after being delayed a second time. Officials say the delay is to ensure the teams at Firaxis Games and 2k can deliver the best possible experience for fans, and that the game should arrive later this fiscal year, which means sometime before March of 2023. But that date’s only going to work for PC, PS4 and Xbox Series X and S players. Xbox One and Switch versions will be even later.

Is Going Old School. Massive practical sets have been built so the environment

is real and not made through CGI, other than that we don't know much more about the upcoming series

Let’s talk Obi-Wan. Based on hours streamed in an opening weekend, Obi-Wan Kenobi is now the most-watched Disney + original series premiere ever. After just two episodes, the internet is blowing up with fan theories. One of them is that Reva (the Third Sister) is one of the younglings that was attacked in the Jedi temple in the opening scene and that’s why she is so intent on capturing Obi-Wan Kenobi.


If you’re a little confused as to who the Inquisitors are check out the animated series Star Wars Rebels, it’s also on Disney +.


A couple of celeb sightings in the first couple episodes. The mercenary that kidnapped little Princess Leia, Vect Nokru, was none other than Flea…bass guitarist for the Red-Hot Chili Peppers. And the young woman who tried to sell Obi-Wan spice was played by Ewan McGregor’s real-life daughter, Esther-Rose McGregor.


In video game news, Destroy All Humans 2: Reprobed is coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC on August 30, and if you preorder you can play a spin-off game that’s available right now…Destroy All Humans: Clone Carnage. Clone Carnage is a standalone multiplayer game. Couch co-op with two players or go online with four. The game can be downloaded immediately if you digitally preorder Destroy All Humans 2: Reprobed. You can also buy it separately for $12.99


Dig into Stranger Things Season 4 yet. If you’re getting a creepy Freddy Kruger/Nightmare on Elm Street vibe from it, you’re not alone. The internet has lit up with discussions on just that…kids getting tormented in their dreams and subconscious by a horribly disfigured, shadowy foe, whose harm that is done to them in their mind’s manifests on the physical plane as well. Don’t hit me with any spoilers though…I’m only a few episodes in.

Looks like production issues have hit the realm of D&D, Journeys Through the Radiant Citadel won’t be available digitally or in stores until July 5th and the new Campaign Case: Terrain has been pushed to August 16. Luckily, the new Campaign Case: Creatures wasn’t affected, that’ll still be available July 19th and the new Spelljammer: Adventures in Space is still set for an august 16 release date.

The new trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder hit yesterday. Now I’ve been waiting for this one because 1) Thor’s my guy and 2) I’ve been dying to see what Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher looks like. Unfortunately, he looks like Christian Bale! In the comics he’s more alien looking, more sinister looking, and scarier. I’m hoping that’s just something they’re hiding that maybe he’ll transform a bit once they introduce his ‘weapon.’

We finally have a date, according to a tweet from the official Call of Duty twitter account, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be released October 28th   Early details say it’ll center around U.S. special forces fighting the Columbian Drug Cartel.

Obi-Wan Kenobi is about a week away, and now that that is all wrapped up and good to go, crews started production on Ahsoka last week. If you’re not familiar, Ahsoka Tano was Anakin Skywalker’s padawan. She was a HUGE character in the animated Star Wars Clone Wars and the Star Wars Rebels series’ before making the jump to live action in The Mandalorian.


Bethesda has announced that Starfield and Redfall have been delayed to sometime in early 2023. They made the announcement on their Twitter page but didn’t give any real reason other than saying they wanted to ensure the best and most polished versions of the games. They also promised the first gameplay deep dives for both games to be released soon. To mean that means they’re probably going to showcase them at the Xbox/Bethesda Summer Showcase on June 12.


Have you checked out the new LEGO Transformers Optimus Prime set yet? It’s launching on June 1. It’s modeled after the G1 Optimus Prime character and features over 1,500 pieces. It's also one of the few sets that can switch between two different models without needing to rebuild: its robot and alt modes.


The set includes an ion blaster, Energon Axe, Energon Cube, and the Autobot Matrix of Leadership which can be stored in the chest chamber.

So, the next big Star Wars series, Obi-Wan Kenobi, hits Disney + on the 27th…hugely anticipated because we’ll finally get a look into what happens to Obi-Wan between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. But one of the bigger issues Star Wars fans are hoping will be resolved is a plot hole involving something Darth Vader said in Return of the Jedi. In Jedi, when Luke turns himself in and is taken to the new Death Star, he has a conversation with Vader and insists that there’s still some good in him, Vader responds with “Obi-Wan once thought as you do. But we’ve never seen Obi-Wan make any inference that there’s anything left of Anakin in Vader. Die hard Star Wars fans are hoping that the ‘interactions’ between Vader and Obi-Wan in this new series will fill that plot hole and put a period on that sentence.


We’re getting a whole slew of new Marvel shows coming to Disney +…

and …. Loki Season 2. Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead are set to direct (they’re the guys responsible for Moon Knight). No word on any plot lines yet, but production is set to begin next month.


I gotta talk House of the Dragon. The Game of Thrones prequel hits HBO on August 21st and my social media has blown up since the trailers were released. It’s 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones and tells the story of the House Targaryen. If you are a GOT fan and haven’t checked out the teasers and trailers online yet…, do it. It’s well worth it.

May the 4th Be With You! And to celebrate Star Wars Day Fortnite is returning to the galaxy far far away for their yearly Star Wars celebration. They’ve added usable lightsabers back into the game, along with the E-11 blaster…the one used by Stormtroopers. There’s also a bunch of new Star Wars quests…all of it’s active in the game until the 17th.

Did you catch Moon Knight’s or Marc Spector’s third personality last week? It was quick, but early in the episode in Dr. Harrow’s office Marc does another little personality switcharoo but this personality has a cut on the bridge of his nose that we haven’t seen before, and if you watch his accent and body language don’t match that of either Marc or Steven. The buzz in the geek world is that was Jake Lockley, a third personality. In the comics, Jake’s a cab driver that gathers info for Marc. Now fast forward a bit to the scene where Marc’s dad is sitting Shiva for his mom…there’s a cab parked behind him which Steven and Marc watch drive away. How Lockley gets involved at this point is still up in the air mainly because I haven’t watched today’s episode yet.

And for my D&D brothers and sisters out there. We’re getting a new Dragonlance trilogy this year. The first one, “Dragonlance: Dragons of Deceit” should hit shelves August 9th, the official word from Margaret Weis, one of the creators, is that we’ll return to old friends while introducing a new heroine.

Since we finished our D&D campaign last week, I was feeling a little withdrawal, luckily I was able to check out the first ever D&D Direct; a live online demo of everything new for D&D in 2022. We’re getting “Spelljammer Adventures in Space” where deep space meets deep sea, so basically space pirates…new worlds, cities on asteroids, dead gods floating in the ether. There are 3 new books, 6 new playable races, new monsters, and an all-new adventure set in Wildspace in the Astral Sea.

“Spelljammer Adventures in Space” officially releases in August of 2022, but there will be a prequel adventure available in July that you can grab if you have a wizards account.
There’s also a new 5e book on the way, “Journeys Through the Radiant Citadel”; 13 new adventures, 15 new locations. It’ll be on bookshelves June 21st.
And there’s something I need to talk with Emily from the Celebration Cinema about… “Dungeons and Dragons Honor among Thieves”; a new live action D&D movie with Chris Pine, Hugh Grant, Michelle Rodriguez. That’ll hit theaters March 3rd of 2023.
Netflix is beefing up their game business. Right now, users have access to 18 games. Netflix is going to make that 50 by the end of the year.
In May 2020, Disney+ announced that they’ll be working with Rick Riordan to adapt the Percy Jackson novels into a TV series. No release date, they were expecting it to take at least a couple years to get everything written, production just started in January, so we’re going to have to wait a while before this one hits Disney +.

Rob Ryan reading a Thor comic bookIf you haven’t seen it yet, the “Stranger Things Season 4" trailer is available online. In it we go back to the 1950s, we see that some of the kids are still in Hawkins, some are in new towns and new schools, and we see a new monster…Vecna. When I heard that it rang a bell, I’ve heard that name before. That’s when it hit me…D&D. Vecna was one of the greatest villains in Dungeons & Dragons history. We originally saw him in “World of Greyhawk” back in 1975. Vecna was a super powerful wizard who turned big-bad and went all Litch on everyone (a Litch is a spellcasting undead beastie who was once human [usually] and sought to defy death by unnatural magical means). It makes sense, because in earlier seasons of Stranger Things we see the kids playing Dungeons & Dragons…and for this D&D geek I thought the tie in was pretty cool. In the show Vecna isn’t actually a Litch, but a human who was mutated into a monster due to hanging out too long in the Upside Down. To learn any more we’ll have to wait until May 27, 2022, when season 4 hits Netflix.


My social media blew up earlier this week when the “Thor: Love and Thunder” trailer hit the internet. I am a huge Marvel fan and an even bigger Thor fan, so of course I was all over it. A couple things I thought were cool. In the beginning we see young Thor running through the woods in a Jack Kirby style Thor costume which is AWESOME. Thor first appeared in the comics in “Journey into Mystery” in 1962 which was created by… (wait for it) …Jack Kirby. In the trailer Thor says his superhero days are over and we see him ‘plant’ Stormbreaker in the ground. This is an obvious tribute to Thanos’ ‘scarecrow.’ The shot in Endgame with Thanos’ armor hanging outside like a bizarre scarecrow wasn’t just a cool shot in the movie. That was an homage to the comic books where Thanos hung his armor up symbolizing that fact that his work was done, and he was leaving his old life behind. See the tie in…? I love how Marvel puts these little Easter Eggs in there for us die hard comic fans. At the end of the trailer, we see Mjolnir…reforged…flying through the air and into the hands of none other than Jane Foster the new “Thor”. What we didn’t get to see was Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher, but we did get to see evidence of some of his handiwork. The scene in the trailer where Thor and Korg are looking at a giant creature skeleton from atop a snowy mountain is a perfect recreation from Jason Aaron’s “Thor: God of Thunder #3” where Gorr is first introduced in the comics…and yes, I have that whole comic series sitting on my shelf. “Thor: Love and Thunder” hits movie theaters July 8th, 2022.
