News Around the Net!

March 3rd, 2021

Well the Snyder Cut of Justice League is actually a real thing that is really coming later this month!  Crazy.  I don’t have much hope this will be a great movie, but I must say I cannot wait to see this thing!  Here’s the full trailer, in case you missed it:

And here is a fascinating, in-depth article about the behind the scenes story of the Snyder Cut.

Here’s a beautiful new trailer for the upcoming Pixar film, Luca:

This is huge news: Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, the original creators of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra, are returning to create a new animated film and additional TV projects set in the Avatar world!  Very exciting!  (Especially after the disappointing news from a few months back that the duo had parted ways with the Netlix live-action Avatar series.)

I love Mark Millar and Frank Quitely’s bonkers, violent generational super-hero comic book series Jupiter’s Legacy, and I’m cautiously excited for the upcoming TV series adaptation, coming to Netflix in May!  Here are some interesting photos of the characters.

As readers of this site know, I love Star Trek and I love the continuing saga of connected Star Trek novels that has been running for the past two decades.  Sadly, the events depicted in Star Trek: Picard contradicted the events told in those novels.  As a result, it looked like the long-running novel series was cut off prematurely after David Mack’s novel Collateral Damage.  I’m excited that, after a lengthy delay, it looks like this novel series will actually be getting a proper conclusion with the three-part novel series Coda, coming next year.  I wish the books would just ignore Picard and keep their series running for many more years.  But if that’s not happening, I’m pleased that the books will get a wrap-up story.  I hope it’s good!

Sigh.  It’s hard for me to muster much enthusiasm for a Star Trek kids show.  But if you’re interested, here’s a look at the main characters of the animated Star Trek: Prodigy.  (This was originally intended to premiere on Nickelodeon, but now the show will launch on the new Paramount+ streaming service.)

Speaking of Paramount+, looks like they’re also hoping to build excitement around revivals of Inside Amy Schumer and also Beavis and Butt-head!  Click here for more info.  (The former interests me more than the latter.)

The second season of Ronald D. Moore’s For All Mankind recently launched on Apple TV+, and I can’t wait to watch it.  Here’s a terrific interview with Mr. Moore.  I love how he suggests that the alternate history presented in For All Mankind just might be the path to Star Trek’s utopian future!!

Click here for an oral history of the divisive Lost finale.  It’s an interesting read, though it reopens an old wound.  I will though again take this opportunity to point out that I actually thought the final episode of Lost was solid.  It was the rest of the final season that was a crushing disappointment, and that totally destroyed my love for the show.  (Click here for my review of the Lost finale; click here for my initial thoughts on the rough start to the final season; click here for my in-depth review of the first half of the final season, and here’s where I gave up.)

Thanks for reading!  Lots more movie and TV review are coming soon!
