Manifest lives! Netflix picks up the drama for a fourth and final season

“Couldn’t let a day as significant as today go uncelebrated,” the official Netflix account tweeted at 8:28 AM PST. “Manifest will officially return for a super-sized fourth and final season, only on Netflix!”

According to Deadline, stars Josh Dallas and Melissa Roxburgh are already set to return for the 20-episode season, which will be broken up into at least two parts.

I really am dumbfounded as to why this is such a big hit on Netflix. Maybe it hit’s different binge watching. This series is SLOW, and full of red herrings. It’s almost as like the writers had no coherent story, they were just writing on the fly, season to season. I quit half-way into season 3, as it became a chore to watch. I really don’t care about a final season. LOST final season sucked, and the ending was ridiculous, but at least it was well written as far as character development. MANIFEST is just plain BAD.

Here’s your IRON MAN replacement. Happy now?

“We’re shooting Black Panther: Wakanda Forever right now, and the character of Riri Williams, you will meet in Black Panther 2 first,” Marvel Studios President/Marvel Chief Creative Officer Kevin Feige recently confirmed. “She started shooting, I think, this week before her Ironheart series.”

Created by Brian Michael Bendis, Mike Deodato, Eve Ewing, and Kevin Libranda, Riri Williams debuted in 2016’s Invincible Iron Man #7. The character is a 15-year-old teenage genius who uses her immense intelligence to reverse-engineer Tony Stark’s armor, eventually taking up the moniker of Ironheart.

Of course, in the comic books, Riri Williams actually REPLACES Tony Stark as Iron Man, before becoming Iron Heart. I guess Kevin Feige doesn’t want to touch that with a 50 foot pole, so they are just jumping straight to Iron Heart. But make no mistake faithful reader, this is just the start of replacing characters with minorities, females, or both. Welcome to 2021 WOKE AMERICA! Congrats! YOU DID IT! If were up to me, I’d pry your eyes open a-la Clockwork Orange and MAKE you watch this Y.A. woke crap, because let’s face it, you say you want it, you get it, and yet you won’t watch it.

And let’s remember, the comic books did this in 2016. NO ONE BOUGHT THE BOOK! Marvel spun off Iron Heart into her own book, and no one bought that! Marvel just eventually brought Tony back from the dead, but Feige doesn’t have that option. I guess Feige isn’t as smart as he thinks he is, not learning from Marvel’s woeness experiment from the comics.

Netflix Renews COBRA KAI for Season 5!

Season 4 is set to premiere on December 4th, where we will see Daniel and Johnny work together as they and their students face off with John Kreese (Martin Cove) and his crew. Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith) from Karate Kid Part II is coming back as well.

Great news for COBRA KAI fans, and I am one of them! I love how this show gives a glimpse of the Johnny side of it all, while dishing nostalgia vibes mixed in with teenage drama. A show really for the whole family. Terrific fun!

Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol | Official Trailer 2 | Peacock Original

Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol is streaming September 16th on Peacock with new episodes every Thursday.

Synopsis: Based on Dan Brown’s international bestselling thriller “The Lost Symbol,” the series follows the early adventures of young Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon (Ashley Zukerman), who must solve a series of deadly puzzles to save his kidnapped mentor and thwart a chilling global conspiracy.

Looks OKAY I guess…

Wait… There’s a Live Action “Lion King” prequel in the works?

According to Deadline, The Underground Railroad star Aaron Pierre will voice Mufasa, while Kelvin Harrison Jr. (The Trial Of The Chicago 7) voices his evil brother Taka, aka Scar. The film marks a reunion for director Barry Jenkins (Moonlight) and Pierre, who also worked together on Amazon’s The Underground Railroad.

The Lion King prequel will use the same technology Jon Favreau implemented in his 2019 live-action remake. Jeff Nathanson, who scripted 2019’s The Lion King, returns to pen the sequel script. The story will follow the origins of Mufasa while also exploring other familiar characters from the beloved franchise.

I personally think that live action remakes of animation classics are blasphemous. They can all suck my ass. I have to admit that I actually didn’t mind the “Beauty and The Beast” live action remake, but that’s only due to the HUMAN performances. I love Will Smith, but remaking ALADDIN without Robin Williams is a FUCKING SIN. I REFUSE to watch it, EVER. And I love John Favreau, but talking CGI animals is just creepy. And as a traditional animation lover, these movies HAVE TO STOP. If you can’t come up with new ideas, that’s YOUR PROBLEM! Stop shitting on traditional cell animation! LEAVE CLASSICS ALONE!

Serena Williams Morphs Into Wonder Woman for DirecTV Ad

Tennis champion Serena Williams proves her prowess in a different arena, in ad spots for DirectTV Stream — as Wonder Woman.

I really like this ad. Unlike ACTUAL race-swapping, this is a funny parody that works. Rock that Wonder Woman costume Serena!

Bryan Cranston’s YOUR HONOR Renewed for Season 2 at Showtime

Peter Moffat will return to the helm the series as showrunner, executive producer and writer of the upcoming 10-episode season. Gary Levine, President of Entertainment, Showtime Networks said in a statement:

“We were blown away by Your Honor … by the power of Peter’s storytelling, by the depth of Bryan’s performance, and by the overwhelming reaction from our subscribers who watched in record numbers. Imagine our delight when we learned that Peter believed he had more story to tell and Bryan felt he had more depths to plumb. So, along with its millions of fans, I am gleefully shouting ‘Encore!’”

I was under-whelmed by this series, with a disappointing ending. Bryan Cranston’s charter of THE JUDGE was good, but do I really want to see more of this character? The answer is a resounding “no”.

Jake Gyllenhaal Set to Star in Film Adaptation of Robert Kirkman comics series OBLIVION SONG

Oscar nominated actor Jake Gyllenhaal (Brokeback Mountain, Nightcrawler) has signed on to star in the big screen adaptation of the graphic novel Oblivion Song. The comic was created by Robert Kirkman and Lorenzo De Felici, and it has been picked up by New Republic Pictures. Gyllenhaal’s production company Nine Stories will produce the film with Riva Marker and Kirkman via his shingle Skybound Entertainment. Her’s the synopsis:

“Oblivion Song” chronicles Nathan Cole, a man who makes daily trips to try and rescue those still living in Oblivion, an apocalyptic hellscape in Philadelphia that was lost a decade prior, along with 300,000 of its citizens.

I have read OBLIVION SONG. It IS NOT a Graphic Novel. You can BUY it as a Graphic Novel now, but it was a COMIC BOOK SERIES. I read the first 24 issues (in 2018-2019) and I thought it ended. It was a complete 24 issue story arch that had a clear ending. But now I have seen that a NEW story arch was created in June of 2020. The comic book is still going, but ending in November 2021 at issue #36. A lot of people wanted this comic book adaptation to be done in a series, which I agree, but as far as Jake Gyllenhaal goes, he’s looking at a trilogy movie here. In any case, I really enjoyed what I read, and this will be a great movie adaptation.

Pixar’s ‘Up’ Cast Returns For Spinoff Series ‘Dug Days’

Pixar Animation Studios’ “Dug Days” is a new collection of shorts that follows the humorous misadventures of Dug, the lovable dog from Disney and Pixar’s “Up.” Each short features everyday events that occur in and around Dug’s backyard, all through the exciting (and delightfully distorted) eyes of our favorite talking dog. Written and directed by Academy Award® nominee and Emmy® Award winner Bob Peterson and produced by Kim Collins, the shorts premiere exclusively on Disney+ on Sept. 1st 2021.

I love UP! and I love DUG, so I’ll be watching this. If you don’t like these characters, then you are a NAZI.

Kristin Stewart is like a saltine cracker. White, plain and usually stale. Can she nail the accent? Who the fuck knows when she has ONE LINE in the trailer???!!!
