SWAMP THING May Have New Life On The CW

The younger-focused broadcaster has also acquired two more shows from the U.K. and Canada.

One part of this headline is a big “DUH” but the shock is the second half that many people were hoping would happen.

SWAMP THING after being officially cancelled by the DC Universe has now been acquired by the CW. CW just fresh off of adding the first two seasons of CBS All Access anthology Tell Me a Story, has licensed DC Universe’s Swamp ThingNo one knows yet when exactly the series will make its official debut on the network or if it just goes to the CW Seed app. There is now also the possibility of a resurgence on the show on the HBO MAX streaming platform.

SWAMP THING starred Crystal Reed as Dr. Abby Arcane and Derek Mears as the elemental and Andy Bean as the human version of Dr. Alec Holland.

For those who are wondering what caused the cancellation of SWAMP THING much of it was because of budget and tax breaks which were taken away in as well as the studio’s decision to bypass paying millions to store the show’s physical sets in North Carolina.

What would like to see happen with the series? Do you just want the initial episodes or pick up and keep the series going?

Could SILVER AND BLACK Potentially Be A Disney Plus Series

Spider-Man-Sony-Marvel-Silver-and-Black

Remember back in December of 2017 when it was announced that Silver Sable and Black Cat would be teaming up for their own movie?  They were set be brought  together as an unlikely duo. But that ulitmately changed as it was decided to give the pair their own individual films. However nothing set in stone has been announced about that.

Well there may be a bit of sterling (as is Silver, get it?…) news about the pair. During a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, original director Gina Prince-Bythewood was asked what she knows about the project and from what was told it seems as if there may be some rumblings leading the ladies towards Disney plus

“I really love that project, and I do hope it can still happen in some way. It keeps going through different thoughts. First, it was going to be the two of them, and then the decision was made to separate the two. Now, there’s a thought of “Hey, maybe we put it on Disney+ as a limited series,” but I loved it more as a film with the two of them. So, my hope is that one day it can still happen.”

Now here’s where it may get confusing for some. It is already known that Sony has laid out plans to bring many Spider-man related characters to the big screen. MORBIUS now being set to release in March of 2021, VENOM: LET THERE BE CARNAGE in June of 2021, there’s even talks of a Kraven the Hunter film.  Sony also has their own plan for their own Spider-verse that is not that of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

Which now leads to the even bigger conundrum. Marvel TV is now all under the control of Marvel Studios and why all of the upcoming MCU Disney plus shows are carrying on into the overall story. SILVER AND BLACK by that account would not fit in with the overall story and would throw things off.

So that leaves the question, if SILVER AND BLACK is brought to the small screen

VENOM Sequel Is Delayed Until 2021

Venom

Due to the coronavirus global pandemic, It’s no surprise that most movies have been either pushed back a few months or even an entire year. But when those films were already set to drop later in this year it’s a little bit surprising.

VENOM:LET THERE BE CARNAGE,” the sequel to Sony’s 2018 superhero blockbuster, has now delayed its big screen debut. The Tom Hardy starring sequel was expected to hit theaters Oct. 2, 2020 but now will instead launch eight months later on June 25, 2021.

This may not be a bad move for the movie. Granted the original VENOM debuted in October and the sequel was following suit. This now allows for  the film to be amongst the summer blockbuster list of 2021.

Andy Serkis takes over the directing chair from Ruben Fleischer for the follow-up to “VENOM,” which sees Tom Hardy once again bond with the alien symbiote known as Venom. The sequel will also feature the return of  Michelle Williams and added on will b, Reid Scott, Naomie Harris and Woody Harrelson as Cletus Kassidy aka Carnage.

THE BATMAN Director Matt Reeves Gives An Update On The Films Progress During This Pandemic.

87204017_862590884180024_6023498698414096384_n

While the world is at a stand still due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, many if not all of tv and film productions have shut down.

One in particular many have wondered about is Matt Reeves’ THE BATMAN. Reeves who is currently still in London waiting on filming to start back up spoke with DEADLINE.   Reeves offered an update on exactly how much work has been completed on the film thus far.

“We’re not officially editing right now,” he confirmed. “We’ve actually shot a quarter of the movie and I have been pouring through dailies, looking at takes, and what’s to come.”

Before the shutdown production of the film was set to move locations from London to Liverpool. But of course that was impossible one the UK was put into a lockdown. Reeves however does feel certain once things have eased up he will be able to resume filming in the UK.

When asked by the trade whether his version of the caped crusader pays homage to Frank Miller’s Batman: Year One or the Flying Graysons, he understandably responded with a laugh, and stated: “I can’t give you the answers to any of that.” 

While Reeves is looking through those dailies, he confirmed that he has no plans to make any major changes to The Batman“It took me two years to work on that story, and it’s a very specific mystery noir that’s been really thought-out by me and my partners.”

One thing he is reconsidering is, “the tone of things. It happens any time you shoot anything. The unexpected — happy accidents and things you didn’t quite expect: That is the lightning in a bottle for something that is alive. I would say that the changes really have to do with ‘Oh, seeing the tone of this’ with these scenes we haven’t done which connect to that part of the storyline.”

“It feels like there might be an opportunity to explore some of that unexpected tone that we found,” the filmmaker continued. “With these movies, you never have enough prep time, because they’re so complex and so enormous in so many ways. It also gives me a moment to think about the larger sequences that have yet to come up and how I want to realize those.”

One of the biggest issues is that it does not seem as if the lockdown going on within the UK will be letting up within the next few months. This may end up putting a very big strain on things. At the end of the day everyone’s health and safety comes first and here’s to hoping that once things get back rolling Reeves and the crew can complete a good filming and from there we wait.

BLACK WIDOW Has A New Release Date And It Shakes Up The MCU Movie Slate

Of the course the world as we know it has changed. Thanos’ snapped first got rid of then brought back half the uni…..oh that’s not what we’re talking about. Oh yeah due to the global pandemic caused by COVID-19 aka THE RONA. The movie release slate for 2020 has been drastically changed.

Many hoped at one point that Marvel Studios’ BLACK WIDOW would still be able to keep its original theatrical release date of May 1, 2020 even if that meant a straight to Disney Plus release. Well not only did the date get pushed back but there also will be no straight to Disney Plus release.

Well today Disney revealed an updated release schedule for the Scarlett Johannson led movie. It also shifts the rest of the upcoming MCU theatrical release slate.

BLACK WIDOW now will take THE ETERNALS release date of November 6, 2020 and THE ETERNALS now shifts to February 12, 2021. This also moves around SHANG-CHI and THE LEGEND OF THE TEN RINGS to May 7, 2021 as well as DOCTOR STRANGE INTO THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS on November 5, 2021.

This update slate also seemingly locks in 2022 as well for Marvel Studios, THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER goes to February 18, 2022, BLACK PANTHER 2, May 8, 2022 and CAPTAIN MARVEL 2 which originally did not have a release date is now set for a July 8, 2022 release.

Of course with the changes in these films theatrically you can bet your bottom dollar that the slate for the MCU Disney Plus series will also be altered given that they all now directly connecting to the films in a chronological order.

The CW Is Moving Some Of Its Upcoming Debut Dates Around

image001-1-1

As the world currently deals with the global coronavirus pandemic and many television productions shutdown along with new episodes put on hiatus. The CW is doing some moving around and shuffling of its upcoming debut slots to fill up the spring time holes in programming.

STARGIRL which was coming to both the DC Universe streaming app as well as the CW is moving back to May 19 instead of its originally planned May 12 air date. A new episode of DC’s “Legends of Tomorrow” will air at 9 p.m. after the premiere of “Stargirl.”

STARGIRL will take over THE FLASH Tuesday time slot until production resumes later in the year. However the show about the fastest man on the planet will finish airing the episodes that were completed before the shutdown. In turn, “Legacies” will go on hiatus after Thursday’s episode, which was the last to finish filming before the shutdown, until production resumes later in the year.

STARGIRL stars Brec Bassinger, Luke Wilson and Amy Smart. It follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore as she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past.

Season 2 of IN THE DARK is described as following Murphy (Perry Mattfeld), a messy twenty-something who struggles on a daily basis to balance her random hookups, her hangovers, and her drug front — all while being blind.
