Being quite fearless in the direction they have gone for the dc animated hbo max series harley quinn is nothing short of amazing. one place they wont go is a censored sex scene between two of it's titular characters batman and catwoman.
“It’s incredibly gratifying and free to be using characters that are considered villains because you just have so much more leeway,” related Halpern. “A perfect example of that is in this third season of Harley [when] we had a moment where Batman was going down on Catwoman. And DC was like, ‘You can’t do that. You absolutely cannot do that.’ They’re like, ‘Heroes don’t do that.’ So, we said, ‘Are you saying heroes are just selfish lovers?’ They were like, ‘No, it’s that we sell consumer toys for heroes. It’s hard to sell a toy if Batman is also going down on someone.’” https://variety.com/2021/tv/features/subverting-superhero-tv-wandavision-harley-quinn-umbrella-academy-1234992069/ Variety has stated that DC shot down the idea of having a sex scene between the two characters. saying that they are in the market to sell consumer products and that they absolutly cannot show them doing that.
harley quinn is currently in production with no release date being announced at this time.
So we've finally reached the season finale of Lovecraft Country and if you've watched it from the beginning then you know there is a lot to process. Many have asked what this show is about and well, it's a multi-layered show. First off it's based off the Matt Ruff novel of the same name. It's story that tales place in 1950's Jim Crow era Chicago and centers around several protagonists. One of them being Atticus Freeman, a recent Korean War veteran and only child to his estranged father Montrose.....https://wordpress.com/post/blerdseyeview.home.blog/485
With the third installment of Spider-Man beginning to film in Atlanta this month. News of Benedict Cumberbatch reprising his role as Dr. Strange in the film has surfaced and I couldn't be more excited!!
The reason for this excitement is that this can pen up so many possibilities as well as tie up some loose ends. (If you seen the Spider-Man: Far From Home mid-credits you know what I mean.) However, this could be a red herring. Thinlk about it. You're probably thinking in order to clear up the Mysterio reveal that if the rumor is true, one of the Spider-Men played by McGuire and/or Garfield will play a bait and switch n order to clear Holland/Spider-Man's identity. It seems a little too easy of a plotline to use. But, the MCU has given us quite a bit of material over the past 10 years so I trust what they may have up their sleeve. Tell me what you think in the comments below and be sure to follow the Blerd's Eyeview podcast on all social media platforms and Youtube as well!!
Well it seems the ol' rumor mill is a churning once again surrounding the third untitled Spider-Man film. Word has it that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield several days ago has now turned to signing on to join Jaime Foxx and Bendict Cumberbatch in the third Spider-Man film . This adds new fuel to the already blazing fire of the Doctor Strange sequel: Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness including Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch. Pretty much saying that this could be a live action Spider-Verse where Tom Holland's Spider-Man could be facing off with a multitude of villians this go around. It has been rumored that Kraven the Hunter would appear and it has already been stated that Jaime Foxx's Electro would appear. Let's chat!! Do you think having a live-action spdier-verse is the way to go? Respond with your comments on the Blerd's Eyeview Facebook page and be sure to follow Blerd's Eyeview on all soicial media platforms and listen to the Blerd's Eyeview podcast anywhere you listen to podcasts. You can also follow Blerd's Eyeview on Youtube!
It seems the rumor of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield reprising their roles as Spider-Man were just that. Rumor. Sony pictures released a statement earlier today stating that the two actors were not confirmed. Which in it's wording states that it does not confirm nor deny that the two webheads may or may not show up. Stay tuned as more news about the webhead emerges!
Hiroyuki Sanada who has was last seen in the HBOMAX release of Mortal Kombat as Scorpion and Zack Snyder's Netflix film Army of the Dead has now been cast in an unknown role in John Wick 4!! Sanada who's film credits include Avengers:Endgame, The Last Samurai, The Wolverine and already playing opposite to Reeves in 47 Ronin. Sanada already had a massive fanbase overseas With a previous announcement of Donnie Yen joining the cast It's safe to say that the next installment of John Wick will be an action packed thrill ride!!
Chad Stahelski is returning to direct .
Chris Fury here with my comics review!! So, without question in my opinion Ta-Nehisi Coates writing, Brian Stelfreeze and Daniel Acuna's art during this run has been beatiful!! The story arc of Black Panther and Wakanda take them beyond the stars!! (Literally!!) and into realm that had not been reached by this character. Wakanda isn't just a nation anymore, it is truly a galactic empire!! However, T'Challa finds himself without his memory. Only flashes of his previous life and loves visits him in his dreams and he also finds himself a slave to a reborn N'jadaka aka Killmonger who has found himself "partnered" with a symbiote, yes, that one. T'challa finds out through stories told by the downtrodden that one of their own would rise to overthrow their dictator . Through trials, T'challa comes to realize that person is him, naturally and the war begins. We are treated to many shining moments in this arc. Three of them being for me is the "talk" between Ororo (Storm) and Nakia and how she (Storm) will always be the one he comes to, Storm's singlehanded leveling of an entire armada of space warships. And lastly what is probably one of the Blackest moments in comics, damn near every black superhero coming to the aid of Wakanda. I' mean every one from Luke Cage, Misty Knight, The Falcon, Miles Morales, Doctor Voodoo and more!! There is even a great speech between T'challa and Dr.Eliot Franklin aka Thunderball and how he was perceived as the "Black Bruce Banner" and how that made him feel despite his accomplishments. Powerful stuff. This story touches on everything from learning about your past in terms of heritage, history and religion. It is very reminiscent of Coates literary works in "Between the World and Me,, The Water Dancer and many more. This run run of Black Panther ends with issue 25 but Coates go on to write Captain America nad has been tapped to write a script for the next DC live action Superman film project.
With the Flash movie currently being filmed we get a fsneak peek behind the scenes at Sasha Calle's portrayal as Supergirl and Michael Keaton's Bruce Wayne on set!! What is shaping to look more like Flashpoint, a storyline plucked from the DC Comics in 2011. While this particular Supergirl doesn't look like Kara Danvers. She does favor Lana Lane Kent, the daughter of Superman and Lois Lane. The character of Lana Lane Kent was created by comic writer Tom Taylor and is seen in the Injustice: Gods Among Us comic and although Calle's character does resemble the Lana Lane Kent character, it isn't clear as of yet if she's portraying this exact character. What is sure to get people talking isn't just the new Supergirl, but the inclusion of Michael Keaton playing the role of Bruce Wayne once again. A role Keaton is probably most admired for from the Batman film released in 1989. While Calle's role is still being held in secrecy, it is safe to say that the Flash film is swiftly moving forward!! The Flash is being directed by Andy Muschietti' and is slated to be released November 4, 2022 -Chris Fury
Filming is currently under way for the next DCEU film Shazam: Fury of the Gods. Led by fanboy and (fangirl) favorite, Zachery Levi reprising his role as Shazam. Along with a redesign of the Shazam costume, we also get a first look at the redesigns of the rest of the Shazam Family costumes . A photo shared on Twitter by director David F. Sandberg with a caption stating " Don’t know how long we can keep the new suits from leaking so here’s a pic I took the other day " The suits look to be inspired by the Man of Steel Superman designs giving the suits a much bolder look. Mary Shazam's looks seems to be inspired by by Wonder Woman. The film is also starring Helen Mirren (Hobbs and Shaw, Red) and Lucy Liu (Kill Bill Vol.1, Charlie's Angels) will be playing villainous sisters Hespera and Kalypso.
Shazam: Fury of the Gods is set to hit theaters on June 2, 2023. -Chris Fury

The only way Rick ccan solve this problem is to have a "Peace Summit" as a guise to send Summer to retrieve a sacred seashell that is the source of Mr. Nimbus' power.

Episode 3 picks right up where Loki has decide to follow Sylvie through the time door which leads back to the TVA. What follows is a great action scene showcasing Sylvie's fighting prowess and easily giving Loki hands for him to deal with (which seems to happen a lot to him in this show!) However, while being temporarily held at knifepoint when facing of with Ravonna and her TVA cronies. This is a short lived situation because Loki manages to use TemPad to transport them to another apocalypse on a moon called Lamentis-1 in the year 2077 and there is a planet breaking apart and getting ready to crash into it. After realizing they need each other to survive, they seek help from one of the residents in a hilarious interaction, The reluctant team make their way to a futuristic train station that will take them to an Ark that will take only the rich residents off world. Posing as a security officer with Sylvie as his prisoner, they make it on board. Before I go on let me just say just how the emotions that Hiddleston has been portraying as Loki is nothing short of spectacular!! The scene where Loki and Sylvie actually have a true heart to heart about their upbringing. Loki who had his mother in his life but didn't know he was adopted. Proceeds to tell Sylvie how his mother, Frigga was a constant positive influence in his life as well as having a full multitude of his powers, while Sylvie who knew she was adopted and never knew her mother, had not received the same. While seeming they are the same person, it's oblivious their upbringing is vastly different. Sylvie decides to get some rest only to awaken to a drunken (or full according to Loki) singing an Asgardian song "When she sings, She sings come home" Perhaps this is Loki truly missing his home and family. This act causes the duo to be thrown from the train and destroying the TemPad in the process. New plan. get to the Ark on the edge of town on foot. Once again there is another revelation. Loki was told that the people that work for the TVA was created to work for the TVA. It turns out that it was all a lie and that everyone there is a Variant from different timelines and they don' t know that. Which is probably why Owen Wilson's Mobius has a fixation for jet skis. Once they arrive it is realized they only have ten minutes before the Ark launches. Agreeing to trust each other (for now). While destruction and chaos is unfolding around them a structure is hit and begins to fall. Loki stops it in mid air and sends it back up (time stone?). But it was all for nothing because a meteor tears the Ark in half leaving our duo staring in disbelief
Loki can be seen on Disney plus every Wednesday and watch our sister show Blerd's Eyeview After Dark only on Youtube as we discuss the latest episode at 10pm!!

If you are fan of the hit CW series Supernatural (which ended it's record breaking 15 season run on the network) Then you've might have heard that a possible prequel to the hit show is underway. The titled show "The Winchesters" would be narrated by Dean, it would tell the story about John and Mary Winchester and how they met, fell in love and put it all on the line to save the world. Now, during the Supernatural run viewers were treated to several storylines about John and Mary in their younger years. Mostly we were treated to Jeffery Dean Morgan and Samantha Smith playing the parents. Jensen and wife, Danneel (who played Sister Jo/Anael the Healer throughout seasons 13-15) created the production company Chaos Machine Productions knew that one of the stories they wanted to tell was the origin of Supernatural and how it came to be. Jensen stated. After news broke yesterday of the possible show, Jensen's co-star and brother on the show Jared Padalecki found out through Twitter that a show was being done without him in mind. Once the "brothers" talked it out it was discovered that it was just a misunderstanding and the family feud was put out just as quick as it started. Currently Jensen is currently filming for the third season of Amazon Prime' s comic book adaptation The Boys as Soldier Boy

When Mile Stone Media was created, it was 1993. distributed my DC Comics It was founded by a group of African-Americans. They were Dewayne Mcduffie (d. 4/21/2011), Denys Cowan, Michael Davis and Derek T. Dingle. Milestone was created because minorities were severely misrepresented in the comic medium. Characters such Static, Icon and Rocket, Hardware and Blood Syndicate confronted issues that plagued the urban and inner cities and confronted those issues justly. They talked about not just rectifying and wiping out crime in their neighborhood but battling and heling in the social issues as well. Bullying, racisms, police brutality and teen pregnancy among a host of others. Dissolving in 1997, it led many fans of their series to wonder what happened to the heroes that represented them? Fast forward two decades and Milestone is back and better than ever with their first release, Static. A story about a brilliant young black kid, Virgil Hawkins who comes from a supportive and loving two parent household but still faces many issues a kid his age deals with. Bullies, racism and the courage to talk to his high school. While attending a demonstration Black Lives Matter the crowd is deemed a threat (where have we heard this before?) with what was perceived as tear gas, but this wasn't tear gas. It was an experimental gas that killed many people in the crowd and those that didn't die were blessed (or cursed) with abilities or mutations (Bang Babies). In this first issue alone we see Virgil dealing with the aftermath of that night and trying to deal with his powers, his anger, and his bully Frank (Hotstreak). Not to mention trying to find out why an illegal was used and still impress the girl without losing control of his hormones or himself. This deals with issues many teenage/young men deal with and walks through the many emotions we all feel whether white or black. Written by Vita Ayala. Art by ChrisCross and Nikolas Draper-Ivey. Static: Season One is sure to reinvigorate new and old fans alike!
Static: Season One #1 is in local comic book retailers now.

In what I can only imagine is another form of "Cancel Culture" Disney and Lucasfilms has decided to rebrand "Slave-1" Bobs Fett's Ship to well... Boba Fett's Ship! LEGO Star Wars Design Director Jens Kronvold Frederiksen and Lead Designer Michael Lee Stockwell have been quoted as saying that Disney will be making sure the rebranding will reflect in all it's merchandise. What can only be considered a Twitter feud at this point between Mark Anthony Austin who played Boba Fett in the special edition of Sar Wars: A New Hope and Disney is nothing short of hilarious! You can see the sarcastic exchanges between Mark Anthony Austin and Disney in the link below.
