Black Lighting Villain – Co-showrunners Salim Akil and Mara Brock Akil have revealed that “Black Lighting’s” villain will be Tobias Whale. Well, at least will be one of the antagonist. The duo claimed that that they won’t be doing the “villain-of-the-week” approach like “Flash”, and following more of “Arrow’s” approach.
It’s a character-driven show. I don’t know if there’s going to be a fight every week,
Salim Akil said, according to International Business Times.
There’s certainly not going to be a villain of the week. I don’t want to do that. We really want to explore the characters, even the villains. I think one of the most interesting characters right now from a storytelling standpoint is Tobias. Because we’re not having him sort of twist his mustache. His hatred for himself and for others comes from a real place, so we want to know why he’s like that.
James Gunn Reveals That ‘Scooby Doo’ Was Supposed to be R-Rated – James Gunn, the director of “Guardians of the Galaxy”, and worked on the 2000’s “Scooby Doo” film, revealed that Scooby Doo was supposed to be R-rated. Or at least the MPPA thought it should be. Gunn revealed on Facebook the details, saying;
The rumors are true. The first cut was rated R by the MPAA, and the female stars’ cleavage was CGI’d away so as not to offend. But, you know, such is life.
He also revealed that a joke was cut due to it potentially referring to oral sex.
