Disney’s Acquisition of 20th Century Fox is Complete

What felt like one of the craziest rumors in Hollywood just a short year ago has now come to pass, as Disney has announced its acquisition of 21st Century Fox, and all its properties and holdings. The companies have finalized and issued cash and outstanding shares, and the deal will become effective at 12:02 a.m. Eastern Time tomorrow, March 20th.

While it’s still unclear how this affects the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Fox’s numerous franchise’s, Disney has already revealed it will continue to release movies under the 20th Century Fox, and Fox Searchlight banners.

Titans Season 2 Adds Deathstroke

I’m not sure what it is about him, but despite the countless live-action versions of Slade Wilson, aka Deathstroke, that we’ve seen, it never gets old to see him added to a DC property. Titans season 2 is no different as DC Entertainment has announced that they’ve cast Esai Morales (NYPD Blue), as the world’s deadliest assassin.

“Slade Wilson is known for being DC’s deadliest assassin,” reads the official press release detailing this take on the character. “While serving his country, Slade became an elite soldier before government testing enhanced his physiology to near superhuman levels, putting him on a path of darkness and revenge. To his family, Slade is a father and husband, but to the rest of the world, he is feared by many as the infamous Deathstroke; selling his services to the highest bidder as the ruthless assassin that never gives up and never misses.”

Marvel Developing What If? Animated Anthology Series

According to /Film, Marvel Studios is developing an animated anthology series based on the Marvel What If? series of comics for Disney+. Kevin Feige will produce the series, though it will obviously not be set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, though the report speculates several actors could lend their voices to the series, reprising their roles from the MCU.

The Marvel What If? series re-imagines key events in Marvel History, rewriting them to speculate what could happen if certain details changed, though it’s currently unknown which stories are being adapted. Expect more information soon, as it develops.

Amazon Confirms its Setting for Lord of the Rings Series

Amazon’s upcoming Lord of the Rings series for its Prime streaming service is still several years off, but with a massive writers room running fill tilt at the future, it’s not surprise we’re already receiving news. Amazon took to Twitter to reveal a map of the series’ version of Middle Earth, which includes the island nation of Númenor, putting the series at the beginning of the Second Age, approximately 3,000 years before the events of Peter Jackson’s much-loved Lord of the Rings trilogy.

It makes sense to not step on the toes of one of the most lauded film trilogies in the history of cinema, opting to tell your own story and expand the world. The series is expected to begin production later this year, with a premiere date sometime in 2021. You can hit the jump to view the map in full.

Superboy Cast in Titans Season 2

Fans of the DC Universe streaming series Titans were treated to a pretty great post-credit stinger for the season finale, with the tease of Conner Kent, aka Superboy. Now, DC Entertainment has announced Superboy is coming to DC Universe’s Titans Season 2 and will be played by Australian actor Joshua Orpin (The Neon Spectrum).

Titans Superboy is described as “the angsty Teenager of Steel searching for purpose and the truth about his past. While looking for answers, he crashes into the world of the Titans and finds an unlikely home and surrogate family as well as revelations that carry more complications than he ever bargained for.”

Gremlins Animated Prequel Announced

While we know that a film reboot has long been in development for the iconic franchise, Variety is reporting that a Gremlins animated prequel series is now in development for the upcoming Warner Bros. streaming service (yes, another streaming service). The series will be written by Tze Chun (Gotham), and is expected to be a “period piece that would follow Mr. Wing, the Chinese grandfather played in the films by Keye Luke, as a young man as he goes on adventures with the friendly Mogwai Gizmo.

While the news of yet another streaming service won’t sit well with most, an animated series in the vein of the old Jackie Chan Adventures starring Mogwai, with maybe a dash of Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, would be an amazing thing.

First Look at the BBC’s His Dark Materials Trilogy

After the middling showing that The Golden Compass had many years ago, as each studio searched for the next Lord of the Rings, many of us wondered if we would ever see Philip Pullman’s massive series make it to the screen again. Now, we have our first look at the star-studded BBC adaptation for His Dark Materials.

The trailer is light on fantasy, but heavy on costume and world-building. Showing us a fantastic world ahead of us for the future when His Dark Materials airs on the BBC internationally, and on HBO in the United States.
