Gotham Star Writing Series Finale – Gotham is wrapping up with the fifth season of the series, and Bane will prove to be a major player in the show, as well as Bruce’s ascension to Batman. While it’s common for actors to take a turn directing an episode or two while they enter later seasons, them writing the series finale is a bit unheard of. Well, Jim Gordon will be able to dictate ho Batman truly begins. Ben McKenzie, who plays Gordon, will apparently write the shows last episode, according to the actor himself at the Rhode Island Comic Con. Twitter user Clare Kramer revealed this while attending a panel that featured Mckenzie and his wife and costar Morena Baccarin.
Mairo Movie Coming – Variety is reporting that Chris Meledandri will be making an animated Suepr Marrio Brothers movie. Meledandri is the founder of the Despicable Me studio, Illumination. When asked about the project by Variety, Meledandri is quoted as saying
I like that this was not done well the first time. think that’s more exciting or more worthy than simply making another version of a film that was done incredibly well to begin with.
Unlike the past film, Meledandri wants to work with Shigeru Miyamoto, the creator of Mario, in order to get an accurate adaptation of Mario. A game, where you jump on turtles. Can’t fuck that up. Again. Meledandri is again quoted as saying;
We are keeping him front and center in the creation of this film. I’ve rarely seen that happen with any adaptation where the original creative voice is being embraced like we’re embracing Miyamoto. There’s a history in Hollywood of people believing that they know better than the people responsible for a property. I’ve made that mistake before.
Diablo 4 Shut Down Rumors – There was a report that we touched on about Blizzard pulling Diablo 4’s announcement from BlizzCon last minute and instead focused on the Diablo: Immortal announcement. A rep from Blizzard emailed Kotaku, who broke the alleged story, and gave them this quote, saying;
We generally don’t comment on rumors or speculation, but we can say that we didn’t pull any announcements from BlizzCon this year or have plans for other announcements. We do continue to have different teams working on multiple unannounced Diablo projects, and we look forward to announcing when the time is right.
Who do we believe? No clue, and like Garfield will tell you;
Quick Hits – A Garfield instagram posted tongue and cheek Voting Day comment about not caring and apparently people are outraged. Because of course they are.
Variety is reporting that Despicable Me creator Chrs Meledandri will be rebooting Shrek for Illumination Studios.
Because I didn’t know this was a thing. Apparently Tamagotchi and Pokemon will team up to release a special device that will essentially be a Tamagotchi device but with Eevee instead of the traditional creature they used to use or still use. I don’t know, I thought Tamagotchi went out of business years ago.
Funki Pop is releasing their own Red Ranger cereal and hopefully they taste like Hot Tamales.
