I have come to greatly respect kiwami japan. They have turned a fish into a knife that can actually cut. They have also made a knife out of aluminum foil that could cut things. One of their newest videos is crazier in my opinion though as they take gelatin and turn it into a knife that can cut what appears to be a cucumber. What’s more is that after he makes the knife, he melts it back down into the gelatin cups he originally had and starts eating them. I salute you, kiwami japan!
Rumors are going around that the villain in The Batman will be The Penguin. That would be an interesting choice in my opinion. I’ve never been a huge fan of Cobblepots, but he does have his moments. With Penguin being the rumored villain and Andy Serkis saying he’d love to work on The Batman, some fans are wondering if he could be the villain. I would watch that just out of my love for Serkis. BossLogic is the famous fan artist that has done many imaginings of fan castings and his latest shows us how he thinks Serkis could look in the role of The Penguin. Do you think Serkis is a good fit? Is there a different villain you’d like on the big screen?
After hearing the news that the standalone #batman movie may have The Penguin as the main villain and also hearing that @andyserkis would like to do a #dc role, I thought he would be a dope cast that would bring in his unique take on the character @mattreevesLA #TheBatman pic.twitter.com/Uoiv69MoqZ— BossLogic (@Bosslogic) June 1, 2018
I was shocked when I learned that Legally Blonde 3 was going to be a thing. It’s bringing Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith and Karen McCullah back to pen the script and Reese Witherspoon will be reprising her role as Elle Woods which makes me think this will actually be pretty good. Legally Blonde 3 is currently set to release on February 14, 2020, aka Valentine’s Day, so guys, be ready to maybe plan on seeing it that weekend. This release date puts it in competition with Nimona from Blue Sky, an untitled movie from DC, and an untitled live-action movie from Disney. That could be some stiff competition if DC gets their act together and depending on what the Disney film is.
I saw the first Legally Blonde just a few years ago and enjoyed it, but it’s been a long time since it and Legally Blonde 2 were first released. Why is everything being brought back? Why can’t we let the past die in peace? Anyway, I think this movie has a chance of being good and so far I don’t think the competition will be too rough.
Many fans have been pretty confident that Shazam! would take place in the winter. Some set photos seem to have Christmas decorations, so it only makes sense. Those fans can rest assured that director David F. Sandberg has confirmed that it will be in winter. In an interview with Film Riot Podcast, Sandberg said:
I know many of you are skeptics, but I’m excited for this film. I think Aquaman and Shazam! are the best shots for DC to turn things around and get their failures behind them. Shazam! will be in theaters April 5, 2019.
I just found out that a special artbook is coming out to celebrate Bleach later this year. It will be called Bleach JET and the picture I first saw features Ichigo who looks a lot like his father Isshin but with orange hair and no beard. The official announcement first came via a brief video on the official Instagram page, and it points to over 700 pieces of artwork being collected in more than 500 pages.
Bleach will receive a new artbook collecting all of the artwork over the last 15 years, Bleach JET --it'll have 500 pieces of artwork. Preorders will remain open until August 20th. pic.twitter.com/sSC6q0xyDn— YonkouProductions (@YonkouProd) June 1, 2018

The interesting part comes in a tweet that series creator, Tite Kubo, sent out. It had two images and one of them featured Ichigo in a graphic tee as is normal for him, but the interesting part is that the graphic says, “and little sequel.” Or at least, that’s what it looks like it says. We can’t see if there’s anything before “and” and we don’t know that it’s an “l” before “ittle,” but it makes the most sense. This of course has fans theorizing that Kubo is hinting at a sequel to the manga. Neither Kubo nor the manga’s publisher Shueisha have officially announced a sequel, so we could all be getting excited for nothing. What would the sequel cover? Ichigo as an adult? Ichigo’s kid? Yuzu and Karin? Some new character?
Remember back when I mentioned that Jason Todd may appear in Titans? Looks like he will! Some new set photos have been put on the internet saying that Jason Todd will be played by Curran Walters. We don’t see Walters in a Robin outfit and we’re not sure if we will see him in one at all during the series. Heck, we don’t even know how big of a role he’ll play in the show.

In addition to Walters seemingly confirmed to be Jason, it looks as though Titans is looking to introduce Superboy in the season finale. That Hashtag Show recently shared a description of a role for “David”:
Some fans of Young Justice may notice that this sounds similar to the first episode of that show. I’m becoming really excited for this show and can’t wait to find out when it will be released. It is currently slated for a release later in 2018 with the launch of DC Universe, DC’s streaming service.
Many of you are probably wondering what on earth Stargirl even is. Simply put, it’s the first live-action film that Disney is making for their streaming service.
Grace VanderWaal has been chosen by Disney to star in the film and it will be her first acting gig. If you watched America’s Got Talent a couple of years ago, you may recognize her as she won for singing and playing the ukulele. She has since released an EP and debut album and is currently going on tour with Imagine Dragons.
Stargirl will be directed by Julia Hart, and appears to be based on a novel by Jerry Spinelli and this is the description of the book:
Stargirl. From the day she arrives at quiet Mica High in a burst of color and sound, the hallways hum with the murmur of “Stargirl, Stargirl.” She captures Leo Borlock’ s heart with just one smile. She sparks a school-spirit revolution with just one cheer. The students of Mica High are enchanted. At first.
Then they turn on her. Stargirl is suddenly shunned for everything that makes her different, and Leo, panicked and desperate with love, urges her to become the very thing that can destroy her: normal. In this celebration of nonconformity, Newbery Medalist Jerry Spinelli weaves a tense, emotional tale about the perils of popularity and the thrill and inspiration of first love.
When talking about the casting, Hart said:
"I knew she was Stargirl almost immediately. The world knows what a talented performer she is, and I cannot wait for everyone to see just how many sides there are to this special and magical young woman."
Principal photography is set to begin late in September of this year, but no release date has been mentioned for the film or the streaming service yet. I imagine it will be sometime in 2019 for both though.
The live-action version of Mulan that Disney is making seems to be making some choices that not all fans are happy about. It all started with them announcing that it would not feature any of the music from the cartoon and the latest blow has been a change in Mulan’s love interest. In the cartoon, Mulan falls for her commander Li Shang, but with Li Shang not even being her commander in this film, Disney has shifted her love interest to a fellow soldier named Chen Honghui. The Hollywood Reporter describes Chen as "a confident and ambitious recruit who joins Commander Tung's unit, becomes Mulan's biggest ally, and eventually turns into her love interest." The actor that will bring Chen to life is Yoson An who hasn’t been in much yet but will be in The Meg and Mortal Engines later this year.
Mulan will be played by Crystal Liu with Donnie Yen, Jet Li, Gong Li, Utkarsh Ambudkar, and Ron Yuan filling out the cast. Mulan is currently slated for May 27, 2020.
Diane Nelson, President of DC Entertainment and President of Warner Bros. consumer products, has officially stepped down. She had been on leave of absence since March to deal with things related to her family and was expected to return at some point, but has now informed Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara that she will not be returning. Here is the official announcement that Tsujihara made to the company:
It is reported that the structure they’ve been using in her absence will remain intact for the moment. That puts Thomas Gewecke in charge of overseeing the DC executive team that includes Dan DiDio, Jim Lee, Geoff Johns, and Amit Desai.
Nelson has also released a statement that shows how sad she is to be leaving the team.
There is no doubt that Nelson has had a big impact on Warner Bros. as she helped spearhead the Harry Potter franchise into what we know today. She also helped organize the DC side of things to make a more cohesive partnership between all of the different branches. In addition, she's the one you can all thank for Arrow, Supergirl, Black Lightning, and more. I wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors and I hope DC and Warner Bros. are able to find someone who can fill the shoes she left behind.
I am constantly finding and being told theories about Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4. I just recently found a theory that overlaps with these movies, but it intrigues me because it has a lot to do with the story of Thor: Ragnarok as well. The TLDR of the theory is that Odin had Eitri make him an Infinity Gauntlet, received a mock one to try on before the real one was made, and that’s the one that was in Odin’s vault. Also, the means of obtaining the Soul Stone is why Odin stopped being a conqueror with Hela.
I’d love to hear what you guys think of this theory, or if you have any thoughts as to why Odin had a fake Infinity Gauntlet and how Hela knew it was fake. Here’s the long-winded full theory posted by Redditor DraftDraw who in turn credits user bubonis:
