Follow-ups

Ren & Stimpy
New documentary on the way about the amazing animated show. The documentarians are going to take the kid gloves off for this one judging by the trailer. John Kricfalusi’s recent allegations will be addressed.

AMC/Universal
The distribution feud has settled on terms. NBCUniversal will release their movies theatrically for “at least 3 weekends” before the option opens up for VOD release.

Batman: Death in the Family
The newest animated movie from DC is interactive? Supposedly there are multiple endings and many different ways to tell the story. Very much an homage to the original comic book run.
Bruce Greenwood (The Resident, Star Trek, iRobot), Vincent Martella (Phineas and Ferb) and John DiMaggio (Futurama, Adventure Time) reprise their Batman: Under The Red Hood roles of Batman, young Jason Todd and The Joker, respectively. Other featured voices are Zehra Fazal (Young Justice) as Talia al Ghul and Gary Cole (Veep) as Two-Face and James Gordon.

Rumor Mill


Star Wars
New rumor about another movie. This time dealing with Luke after the events of Return of the Jedi and in continuity with Mandalorian. To be fair… even the rumor says this is just one of the options on the table in front of Disney.
Also said to be considering allowing filmmakers to make “R” rated Star Wars movies. Is THIS the “dark” Order 66 movie that is also rumored?

Halo Infinite
Free to play multiplayer?

Chilling adventures of Sabrina
HBO Max might pick up where Netflix left off. It technically is a WB property so this could be legit.

Judge Dredd
Said to be eyeing both Karl Urban and Sylvester Stallone to return…
Jason Kingsley, CEO of Rebellion who currently own the movie rights, 
“I want there to be a sequel. We’ve got the rights back so we can do it, we’ve just got to get rid of this virus thing that’s going on at the moment, and then hopefully things can kick off in all sorts of different areas of making film and TV, it’s just, it’s all very messed up at the moment for everybody. A lot of work has been done on all sorts of different scripts actually. So Mega-City One, the TV show. Basically, we can’t go into production because of the situation and we’ve got scripts, and everything is ready to go but the problem is, because of the situation everybody’s funding changes and everybody’s shifting around. Well if we can get people back, you know, we even joked that it would be quite fun to get Stallone back.”

Horizon Zero Dawn
New movie reportedly in the works. Eyeing Jennifer Lawrence to star?

Deadpool 3
One of the ideas supposedly being discussed is to have the Merc meat Galactus in an alternate universe...
