TVLine  is reporting that Emmy Award-winning actor Jon Cryer (Two and a Half Men) has signed on for the fourth season of The CW’s Supergirl, in the recurring role of Lex Luthor. Cryer is surprisingly no stranger to the DC Universe, as he portrayed Lenny Luthor, the insufferable nephew of Lex Luthor in Superman IV: A Quest for Peace.

“We are enormous fans of Jon Cryer, and he was instantly our dream actor to play the iconic role of Lex Luthor. Jon is a super-talent, and the fact that he played Lenny Luthor in ‘Superman IV’ brings an added layer of legacy to his casting. We’re beyond thrilled to welcome Jon to the Supergirl family.”

IGN is reporting that Castlevania producer, Adi Shankar, whose plate is getting quite full lately is officially working on a new animated series for Devil May Cry. Additionally, Shankar’s universe of animated series is now part of a shared universe, being officially dubbed the “Bootleg Multiverse.”

Interesting word choice for a potential shared universe of franchises from different video game companies. Maybe we’re seeing the beginnings of a new Smash Bros.-style crossover happen over at Netflix?

Second Full Dumbo Trailer Drops

Disney has released a second trailer for the upcoming live-action adaptation of their classic film, Dumbo, from director Tim Burton. With an all-star cast led by Colin Farrell, Eva Green, Danny DeVito, and Michael Keaton, Dumbo hits theaters on March 29th, 2019.

Circus owner Max Medici (DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Farrell) and his children Milly and Joe to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.

Cathy Yan is set to direct, with the film currently releasing on February 7th, 2020. We’ve got a ways to go before production begins on this one, but the cast has shaped up to be something quite special.

Pull Box: November 14

NEWCOMICSDC The battle with Kobra has been a long-winded maze of a story, but it’s been fun. There certainly seems to be something strange going on, as all of these plans are so… basic. Attacking Gotham in various locations. Poisoning the water supply. All of them are strange and almost boring, as if it’s an elaborate diversion-after-diversion play. Perhaps Two-Face isn’t quite the knight that we all think he is in this story? HM Hawkman continues to be the universe-trotting adventure book on shelves, today. Now, Carter Hall has a crazy ship that can ride Zeta Beams, that he created for himself in the past. Another cool toy for him to rediscover his incredible past. I actually wish I could read this whole arc, right now, because it’s been that interesting to me. MM An insane ending that sets up another book in the series, as Mister Miracle still seems trapped, albeit willingly, in this Universe. A Universe of death and destruction. And a universe of love and family. He chooses to bear the burden of being Highfather for the love of his life, and his children. A future he had never seen until now. That I can believe, because the love of Scott Free and Big Barda has endeared for years, and it’s certainly not going anywhere anytime soon. PM And like that, this Plastic Man series is over. And as much as I love Plastic Man, I’m a little relieved. This whole series just seemed to fall apart at the end. The art was spotty, at best. The story made very little sense, with plots thrown in for whatever reason. It was honestly a bit of a half-hearted mess to me, but I can’t quit the stretchy goof, so I had to stick it out. At least we have The Terrifics to treat Plastic man right. SM Rogol Zaar has been such an unlikable, hate-filled villain that for once, I would have liked to see Superman do what must be done. He’s an unstoppable killing machine that has committed genocide throughout the Universe, and it’s unforgivable. Now, Zod comes into play, and he’s certainly willing to do what’s necessary to exact revenge on the world that he so dearly loved. FL Having The Flash on his own adventure with Iris really brings things back to a more light-hearted fun romp than it has been the last few months. Barry seems to have some more pep in his step, which is really important for The Flash. With that in mind, who could have massacred Gorilla City in such a way? Grodd is in control of the Still Force, so perhaps he used that somehow? I suppose we’ll find out, soon. THOR A small, fleeting tale of Thor’s thousands of years of history. This one was very personal, and rightfully yet another glimpse into the harrowing journey that made Thor worthy of one of the most powerful weapons in existence. I would love for more bits and pieces like this, particularly with this charming artist attached, as it was full of life and character. FF It’s so great to have the Fantastic Four back in the Marvel Comics Universe. The petty squabbles over merchandising, and just general uncaring in regards to the books that birthed these many characters has been frustrating for the last… decade, basically. They’re called “Marvel’s First Family” for a reason, and how Marvel would push them aside so easily was upsetting. But, it’s nice to see them back in the fold, once again. CGR This was a fun, crazy, insane arc for a character that was conceived in ridiculous fashion. But, through great writing and surprisingly solid story-telling, managed to stick it out and become his own thing. The Cosmic Ghost Rider. I’m sad to see this was such a short book, but for 5 issues, it was some of the most fun I’ve read in a comic, with crazy timelines and futures galore that were generally just great to read. GGPR Having Jason and Trini switch powers really made this book a little more fun, and light-hearted. It loosened up some of the real-life drama that it’s been touching on with its many relationships. That’s certainly appreciated. Though, I’m still very curious as to how their school papers were uploaded and such? Did they have signal on that planet to do that? How did that even happen? Why didn’t they answer that?!

Second Toy Story 4 Clip Drops

Disney and Pixar have followed us yesterday’s Toy Story 4 teaser trailer with a second, very meta clip introducing two more new characters, Ducky (Keegan-Michael Key) and Bunny (Jordan Peele), who are very excited about the first look at Toy Story 4, despite not knowing the film’s longtime quotes. We even get a bit of back-story for the new characters:

“Woody’s journey in Toy Story 4 includes a visit to a carnival where he meets Ducky and Bunny, two carnival prizes who are eager to be won. But when their plans are rudely interrupted by Woody and his friends, they find themselves on an unexpected adventure with a group of toys who have no idea what it feels like to be tacked to a prize wall.”

Final Alita: Battle Angel Trailer Drops

20th Century Fox and Lightstorm Entertainment have released the final full trailer for the upcoming Alita: Battle Angel, giving us plenty of new footage, and a better idea of the story for the film. The new trailer even boasts much more refined visual effects, and our first looks at Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen), and Jennifer Connelly (Labyrinth).

This is certainly an improvement from previous trailers, with better visuals, action, performances, and just general choice of scenes. Alita: Battle Angel hits theaters on February 14th, 2019.

R.I.P. Stan Lee

Stan

Stan Lee, the creator of some of the most iconic characters in history, has passed this morning at the age of 95. Best known for creating characters for Marvel, such as Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four, Black Panther, Captain America, and many more. The cause of death is currently unknown, but our prayers are with his friends and family in this difficult time. Below is a copy of my Instagram post, with a memory of the time some friends and I met the legendary creator.

There are some people that are fixtures in your life. Figures you assume will live forever because what would the world be like without them. Stan Lee was easily one of those people. One of the key figureheads behind every geek, no matter what side you were on, he was an endlessly charming man, and a snake in a boot for many. Shortly after meeting some of my greatest friends in the world,  @theo_ripper and @r.andrewsandoval, we went to the Spike TV Scream Awards together, and after waiting in line for hours, they started shuffling people around. They pushed everyone out to their seats as we circled around to the edge of the side of the stage. Everyone except us. Just as the three of us, the last people in line, reached the exit to our seats… they ran out. They had us stand there while they searched for more. Alone, and waiting, we weren’t sure what was going to happen next, but as we were standing there, Stan Lee came up behind us. We were star struck. Unsure what to say or do, but he greeted us nonetheless. We tried to take a picture with him before the staff shuffled him away but they were too quick, sadly. But, as Andy has already said, we’ll have that moment forever. Rest in Paradise to the man that solidified the standing of heroes in pop culture. The myth that has lived a life of ups and downs, endless friendships and epic falling outs. The legend that has won our hearts, year after year with his wit and loving passion for the heroes and worlds that he has allowed us to escape to for decades. Excelsior, my fellow true believers.

First Detective Pikachu Trailer Drops

The first trailer for the incredible creepy live-action Pokemon film, Detective Pikachu, is now online, and it’s not what I was expecting. The Pokemon themselves are rendered in an uncanny-valley like level of realism, and it’s strange. Starring Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool), Justice Smith (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom), and Ken Watanabe (Inception), the story follows a young officer on the hunt for his missing Father.

Detective Pikachu hits theaters on May 10th, 2019.
