“I’m Eternia-ly grateful to Mattel TV and Netflix”

Masters of the Universe will be arriving sooner than we thought. But not in the form of the recently announced live-action version starring Noah Centineo. But instead, will come in the form of a Netflix anime series titled, ‘Masters of the Universe: Revelation.’ The series will be a continuation of the 1980’s cartoon, and will focus on “Unresolved storylines” from the show. Kevin Smith is set to executive produce the series, and surprised fans with his announcement at the annual “Power-Con convention.” Here’s what Smith had to say about his upcoming project:

The new series, titled “Masters of the Universe: Revelation,” will take place in the Mattel toy inspired world and will focus on some of the unresolved storylines of the classic ‘80s show. Smith will serve as showrunner and executive producer.

“I’m Eternia-ly grateful to Mattel TV and Netflix for entrusting me with not only the secrets of Grayskull, but also their entire Universe,” Smith said. “In ‘Revelation,’ we pick up right where the classic era left off to tell an epic tale of what may be the final battle between He-Man and Skeletor! Brought to life with the most metal character designs Powerhouse Animation can contain in the frame, this is the Masters of the Universe story you always wanted to see as a kid!”

Rob David, the vice president of Mattel had this to add about the upcoming series:

‘Masters of the Universe’ has been a cultural phenomenon for generations, inspiring fans to discover their own power within. Fans of this franchise have been waiting for the continuation of these characters, and Kevin Smith, as a ‘Masters’ superfan himself, is the perfect champion and partner to expand the canon through a dynamic animated series on Netflix.”

‘Joker’ Success Has Joaquin Phoenix Talking Sequel

Published

“It ended up being a dream role”

Todd Phillips’ ‘Joker’ had tremendous success this weekend. Blowing the doors off the box-office with a record shattering October at $96mil, beating out ‘Venom’ to take the top spot. While ‘Joker’ is still playing strong in theaters, fans have already started speculating what direction the “Clown Prince of Crime,” will head next. Todd Phillips originally shot down the idea of a ‘Joker 2.’ While talking to IGN Phillips said, “We have no plans for a sequel. We always pitched it as one movie, and that’s it.” Now it sounds like Phoenix has different aspirations for the Joker. During an interview with “Popcorn with Peter Travers,” Phoenix talked about his love for the role, saying:

“You know, I wouldn’t have thought about this as my dream role. But now, honestly, I can’t stop thinking about it,” Phoenix said. “I talked to Todd a lot about what else we might be able to do, in general, just to work together, but also specifically, if there’s something else we can do with Joker that might be interesting. So, it ended up being a dream role. It’s nothing that I really wanted to do prior to working on this movie.”

Phoenix, who famously passed on the role of Doctor Strange in the MCU also had this to say about returning to the Joker:

“I don’t know that there is [more to do],” Phoenix said. “Me and Todd would still be shooting now if we could, right? Because it seemed endless, the possibilities of where we can go with the character.”

‘Joker’ will definitely have fans clamoring for more. The movie sets up plenty of potential options for a sequel. More importantly fans just want to see Phoenix return to the screen as Arthur Fleck aka Joker. Joker has raked in over $258mil worldwide on a reported $50mil budget.

‘Joker’ is in theaters now. Get your tickets here:  JOKER TICKETS

When news broke that Lana Wachowski would be returning to helm a fourth installment in the Matrix Franchise, it all but broke the internet. The news was later followed up by reports that we would see most of the original cast return, which included Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss. Further reports suggest production had began casting a “Young Morpheus” and a “Young Neo,” news that had many of us thoroughly confused about the plot direction for the upcoming film. Writer Zak Penn took to social media to clarify:

It would appear that not one, but two Matrix films are in the works. One being a prequel, while the other will be a continuation of the original trilogy storyline with neither being a reboot. The prequel is rumored to have cast Michael B. Jordan as the title character (Morpheus), while feelers have been out searching  for a “Young Neo.”

Keanu was recently asked about the upcoming project and how he felt about returning to his past role as Neo. He said he was “Absolutely” excited. When asked if he had seen the script and what he thought he responded:
