It's Tuesday and time for the Comic Talk Headlines with Dustin, aka, Generally Nerdy! Catch up on everything that's happening in the world of comic books, movies and TV on Tuesdays and Fridays and be sure to subscribe to get fresh daily content. 

  • First, I have potentially found a new source who is saying that just because Affleck won't be in the next Batman movie, doesn't mean he is hanging up the cape and cowl forever. According to this source, the only reason Affleck won't be appearing in this film is because it is set 20 years before the events of BvS and Justice League. Affleck will still be our "Batman in the present." In fact, Affleck is supposedly going to be in 4 more movies as the caped crusader. This same source is ALSO claiming that Cavill will be in 4 more DCEU movies as the man of steel. Whether the Shazam situation has been figured out, or if it counts toward the count of 4,still remains to be seen. But take this with a major grain of salt, as this source has yet to prove their worth.
  • Next, staying with the fluid nature of rumors and news, the Mortal Kombat live action movie is making some headway.Script writer Greg Russo took to his twitter just hours before recording confirming that the script is now completed. Russo, in the recent past, has also confirmed that some of the locations for the movie have been officially scouted, and that both Kabal and Sub-Zero will be in the movie, with an implication that the timeline will possibly be something akin to the Mortal Kombat 9 and 10 games. It is unclear as of this recording if James Wan is still attached to the project as a producer, as previous reports have Wan walking away because of a lack of appropriate funding.
  • Next up we are talking about the animated Super Mario Bros movie, and Nintendo has announced that they are aiming for a super loose release date, sometime in 2022.
  • The final movie update we have for this episode has to do with Guardians of the Galaxy. Volume 3 will officially NOT be directed by Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi. He told the Wrap that "Those are James [Gunn]'s films."https://www.thewrap.com/taika-waititi-confirms-he-wont-direct-guardians-3-thats-jamess-film/On to TV updates we have a quickie about the Buffy reboot series that is currently in development. Sara Michelle Gellar told the Wrap that she will NOT be making any cameo appearances in the series. Saying that she hopes people watch the new series, but that she has"told her story with it."
  • Rounding us out for this episode is 2 bits from FX's time at the Television Critics Association press tour. First, is some interesting information about the Legion series. It seems that the next season will be the final season for the series. Series show runner, Noah Hawley, said that his original intention was to run the series for only 3 seasons which means we will be getting a completed story. They also have cast Stephanie Corneliussen and Harry Lloyd have joined the cast as David’s parents Gabrielle and Professor X.
  • And lastly there is the announcement that FX has ordered to series a live action adaptation of the acclaimed comic book Y: The LastMan. Barry Keoghan, Diane Lane, Imogen Poots and Lashana Lynch co-star and the show will premiere sometime in 2020.
