Crazyness in the world and on our own doorsteps. I don't care what side you root for but what is happening I have seen straight out of the panels in some of the comic books I own and it is terrifying to watch in real life.
Be smart. Be orderly. Be Kind. If you're getting a Superman or Captain America vibe from that, good. Now, let's geek out!
Cyborg In or Cyborg Out?
Ray Fisher, who portrays Cyborg in Justice League, has been very critical about how things are run on set and internally at Warner Bros. A solo Flash film, with Ezra Miller portraying the Scarlette Speedster, was set to have Cyborg make a cameo. Earlier in the week, it was reported that Ray Fisher was out of the movie and was no longer suiting up as everyone's favorite half-human. The actor has come out saying that isn't the case. Why all these rumors?
Ray Fisher came forward regarding the alleged harsh treatment from director Joss Wheaton while on set for reshoots of the 2017 Justice League film, where Cyborg made his official debut (okay, maybe it was in Batman v Superman, but Cyborg didn't have any lines outside of screaming). Since the close of the investigation, the actor states that the problem goes all the way to the top to Warner Bros. President Walter Hamada. Originally Ray Fisher stated he wouldn't be involved in any more movies with Hamada at the helm. Does this begin the replacement of Ray Fisher as Cyborg?
The Flash solo film is set to arrive in theaters in 2022..with to without Cyborg.
Revealed From The Moonlight?
This is just another "confirmed rumor" but according to a cinematographer on MoonKnight, the Marvel hero heading to his own series on Disney+ is indeed Oscar Issac. True? Not true? Don't worry about this series...the story after this is the one you should be more interested in.
In less than one week, Marvel's first streaming series with characters from the MCU will premier on Disney+. WandaVison will arrive on January 15th with two episodes to kick things off. The show is described as a nod to a variety of TV series styles including a 1950's I Love Lucy vibe to scenes that take inspiration from The Office. Of course, being Marvel, we will most likely get a ton of easter eggs from the past 10 years of the MCU and clues of what the future holds...including how the X-Men come into play for the MCU.
Wanda, in the comics, is also known as Scarlette Witch, daughter of Erik Lehnsherr, a.k.a. Magneto. When Wanda was brought into the MCU in Avengers: Age of Ultron, her mutant-name was omitted because of the film rights belonging to 20th Century Fox (now 20th Century ever since the Disney purchase). Since the film-rights to X-Men now belong to Disney, this series could be the launchpad needed to get the mutants into the MCU.
WandaVison premiers Friday, January 15th on Disney+.
A Slice of The Action
Showtime's hit series, Dexter, which ended back in 2013 after 8 successful seasons is coming back to life for a limited run and prepared to primer later this year. If you ever wanted to be apart of that series, a dead body or screaming pedestrian, your chance MAY be easier than you think. The filming of the revival will take place in Massachusetts, mainly in the Worcester County region and other locations west of I-495. According to an article from Boston.com, Gardner, Massachusetts, and other cities and towns are used frequently to film both movies and TV series.
Michael C. Hall is returning as everyone's favorite killer along with Clancy Brown, who will play the "big bad" opposite of Dexter. P.S. Clancy Brown also voices Mr. Krabs on Spongebob Squarepants.
