More MidWk Update: The Snyder Cut is Coming!

5.21.2020 Good Morning! I just couldn’t keep this to myself…we are finally getting the Snyder Cut of Justice League. Yes, you read it right, we are getting the Justice League that should’ve been released in 2017. You’re probably thinking…What took so long? As you can remember, Zack Snyder, who directed the film, had to leave the project due to family tragedy, so Joss Wheadon took over. Great idea, but it wasn’t enough.

Wknd Updates: Comic-Con@Home 2020

5.17.2020 Hello and Good Afternoon! I’ve decided to extend the Weekend Updates to Sunday. Just a few things to share with you people. I hope everyone is taking precautions during this challenging time.  I just read an article from The Hollywood Reporter that Comic-Con International is going virtual. According to David Glanzer, we will have Comic-Con@Home 2020. Yes, boys and girls, Comic-Con is coming to us. The annual event was canceled due to the virus, but the organizers are working behind the scenes to bring it to the comfort of your home. “We are still in the nuts-and-bolts planning phase,” explains Comic-Con International’s David Glanzer. Take a look at this teaser via their YouTube account…   People still want to have that Comic-Con experience in the flesh, so let’s not think this will be the new normal. As Glanzer puts it, he doesn’t think they’ve really thought of it in terms of a replacement for the show. “It is an iteration that we hope will convey some of the excitement of Comic-Con in whatever format …
