Tonight! Daisy Ridley thinks about her career, George Takei still wants a series and Gollum gets his own game. All that and more on this scifi edition of Multiverse Tonight!

Hi Welcome to Multiverse Tonight episode 92! I’m your host Thomas Townley. Well I’ve been playing some Dragon Quest on the Switch to have something different to play. I played that game when I was a kid and it was called Dragon Warrior on the NES.

Star Wars 

In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, actress Daisy Ridley claims that being in Star Wars may have hurt her career, but it’s not all bad saying quote “It was so sad to finish [Star Wars],” Ridley explained. “When the film was released, I was like, ‘Oh my God.’ It was such a huge chapter. And, weirdly, the past few months of not having much… Obviously now it’s really nice to be working, but not having much [at the time] I feel like I processed the last five years. To be forced to slow down, it was good mentally for me because [Star Wars was] a big thing in my life.”

“Weirdly, at the beginning of the year nothing was coming through,” Ridley continued. “I was like, ‘Aww! No one wants to employ me.’ …There were actually loads of things that I auditioned for at the beginning of the year and didn’t get any of them. I had that moment of ‘Oh my god!’ and then just thought ‘everything in its right time.'” unquote You see there, even though she thought that Star Wars might be a hindrance to her career, she has a positive mental attitude toward it, and it’s pt like she’s hurting for money. She has work on the board now, such as the adaptation of Chaos Walking with TOm Holland and voice work in Asteroid Hunters and The Inventor, she is also been cast to star in the fantasy drama Kolma and the World War II biopic A Woman of No Importance.

Well while we wait for a new movie or two, we can always play on Batuu thanks to The Sims 4. Electronic Arts and Maxis have announced their next expansion will be The Sims 4 Star Wars Journey to Batuu. The expansion pack will allow players to explore Batuu, interact with Star Wars characters like Rey and the Resistance or Kylo Ren an The First Order, completing missions will unlock new clothing and decoration options and allow players to make their own droids. and see the sights like Ogas cantina and what would be the Smugglers Run ride in the real world. . The Sims Executive producer and GM Lyndsay Perason said in a press release quote “With The Sims, we’ve always strived to create content that takes players’ imaginations beyond their limits to tell fun and unique stories in the game, and with The Sims 4 Star Wars: Journey to Batuu, they’ll be able to take their Sims on an adventure to the edge of the galaxy,” “We’re such big Star Wars fans, and set out to create an authentic and immersive Star Wars experience for players that also embodies the self-expression and deep storytelling possibilities with The Sims.” unquote  The game will be out on September eighth on PC, Playstation four and Xbox one and retail for $19.99. Kinda a surprisingly low amount, I was kinda expecting a higher, more gougingly amount.

Speaking of games, at Gamescom 2020 developer TT Games and publisher Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment revealed a first look at the gameplay for Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga, they also revealed that the game won’t be out for next year until spring 2021. It’s coming out for PS4, Xbox one, PC and Switch

The Mandalorian is headed back to Disney Plus for season two on October thirtieth and Carl Weathers’ Greef Kraga is back. Carl Weathers tweeted about it. With the simple message Greef Karga is back! #BePeace

Star Trek

Hey CBSViacom, George Takei still wants to make a Sulu series. In an interview with Star Trek dot com, he responded to the question about if they should do a Sulu series next with quoteGood idea. As a matter of fact, in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, Sulu got his own captaincy. The first scene is a shot of this huge, magnificent starship called the Excelsior, and then it zooms in on the bridge, and there’s a brand new Captain seated confidently at that center chair, elegantly sipping his cup of green tea: Captain Sulu. There’s this huge explosion in the galaxy, and the sound waves come rippling over and turn the ship into turmoil, and I shoot shields and the drama begins. That’s a nuclear explosion on the Klingon nuclear planet. 

At the critical point when we’re at the peak of drama, and Kirk is about to be blown up by the Klingons, to the rescue comes Captain Sulu with his Excelsior. He says, “Target that explosion and fire,” and then blows the Klingons to smithereens, thus saving the life and career of Captain Kirk. At the end, as all classic Star Trek episodes end, on the bridge of the Enterprise, Captain Kirk looks at the view screen ahead of him, and the giant image of Captain Sulu. And he stands up and says, essentially, “Thank you for saving my ass,” and Sulu looks down and says, “Good to see you in action one more time, Captain,” and he roars off. 

Scotty and McCoy are looking at the big ship Excelsior and, McCoy says, “Wow, it’s a great ship,” and Scotty chimes in, “Aye, but not so big of a Captain, I think.”  That’s a Captain Sulu movie — it shouldn’t have been subtitled The Undiscovered Country. It should be ‘Captain Sulu To The Rescue’. It’s the best of the Star Trek movies. Unquote  I think they could do it as a limited series with Sulu looking back at his life as he approaches the end of it. That way he can be the bookend of the episodes with Young Sulu being played by another younger actor.

Well with the pandemic CBS needs shows and CBS All Access has shows to spare. The Ifancy Network is set to air season one of Star trek Discovery beginning on September 24th and 10 PM Estern time. Season Three of the show is set to debut on October fifteenth.

Star Trek TV shows are coming to the Star Trek Fleet COmmand mobile game, Sopely and Viacom CBS Consumer Products announced on Monday that all the Trek shows will show up in the game, before it was just the Kelvin Timeline movies. In Star Trek: Fleet Command players choose their crew, the missions they take on, and the alliances they form. Choices made in-game will impact how new storylines intersect as new content begins to roll out over the coming months. 

Now you too can toast to honor like the Klingons do. Wines that rock, has announced that it’s next release of Star Trek themed wines will include a 2018 Klingon Bloodwine Cabernet Sauvignon and a United Federation of Planets Special Reserve 2019 Sauvignon Blanc. Both wines, along with the Chateau Picard Cru Bourgeois and Special Reserve United Federation of Planets Old Vine Zinfandel, are available exclusively at StarTrekWines.com. Wines that Rock even teamed up with the Klingon Assault Group and the Klingon Language Institute to get everything from the design of the bottle, the language and the wine as Klingon as possible. Each bottle will have one of four separate corks featuring Klingon proverbs. The wines are available for pre order now and will be shipped on September seventeenth, the Klingon Day of Honor.

Tonight! Javica Leslie is looking forward to the cape and cowl, Akon wants to build his own Wakanda and we remember the King of Wakanda, Chadwick Boseman. All that and more on this edition of Multiverse Tonight!

Hi and welcome to episode 93 of Multiverse Tonight and welcome to September. Man did the news of Chadwick Boseman passing hit you as hard as it did me. I’m just a few months older than him, but the fact that he persevered in spite of having cancer these past four years is pretty inspiring. I’ll have more on him a little later in the podcast.

Apparently some people are curious as to why the Robin in the new Gotham Knights game is Tim Drake and not another Robin. Comic book dot com asked Gotham Knights creative director Patrick Redding quote “So Tim Drake was our Robin choice right from the start and for reasons that I’m not going to get it to yet, because it does tie into the broader arc of the story, and we will talk about that a little later,” Redding said. “Tim was the right Robin to be the newest Robin for where we’re at, and as well for us, it allowed us to have a teenage Robin who was nevertheless still a physically formidable and physically credible fighter. Even though he has more of a stealth focus and a bit more of a focus in terms of how he’s using his gadgets and using the tricks and detective intuition that he has, we still wanted a Robin that could credibly go through a full evolutionary arc that would end with him being the new Dark Knight of Gotham City.”

“So that for us made a lot of sense, and it’s great because if you’re familiar with the lore and you know your way around the various stories about Tim Drake, it’s not like completely unexplored territory,” Redding said. “People have asked the question of, ‘Where’s Tim going? What’s he turning into?’ People sense that he might be a better detective than Bruce Wayne on some level, but he also has some of Bruce’s other core idiosyncrasies as well and what is that going to evolve into? So for us, it’s really fun, narratively and in terms of his progression. He’s a character who I love thinking about because what kind of urban legend does Tim Drake create about himself when he is on the path to Knighthood?” unquote Gotham Knights will be out in 2021.

Westworld’s Jeffrey Wright, who’s playing Jim Gordan in The Batman, spoke with Sirius XM’s The Jess Cagle Show about how this version of Batman will be different from other comics movies. Saying quote “We have an opportunity,” Wright explained. “Comic book films have sucked a lot of oxygen from the cinematic room. But with Batman, we have an opportunity to use all of the trappings of that genre to explore some things in an American city through a lens of crime, corruption that are really grounded and relevant and interesting. So the detective work there is an exploration of Gotham but it also becomes an exploration of a city very much like New York City.” unquote 

Actress Javica Leslie is ready to be histories first black Batwoman and the significance isn’t lost on her telling the Hollywood Reporter quote “This really had nothing to do with me and everything to do with my people and with little Black girls.” unquote  But she’s not just an actress, but she’s also a lifelong Batman fan. She also says she has the physicality already to play a superhero saying quote “I’m very active in my personal life,” she says, “so being able to allow that to be my work, that’s heaven for me. I do Muay Thai. I do fitness training. I run. Anything that’s active I’m always down for, so this is going to be like playing on the playground every day.” Although she hasn’t been able to get  work yet, she’s made good use of her time. Saying quote “I’ve just been taking this little bit of time we have left, exercising, getting back in shape, getting my adrenaline and my momentum back up, enjoying time with family and friends while I can before work starts,” she says. “It’s been a good season, a season of rebuilding and reconnecting with  myself.” unquote 

Changes are coming behind the scenes at DC Comics, DC announced that Daniel Cherry has been hired as Senior VP and General Manager of DC Comics, he’ll  oversee business affairs editorial, talent services, marketing, sales, brand, and direct-to-consumer content for DC. Cherry isn’t from a comics background but a video game one as has formerly worked for Activision Blizzard as the chief marketing officer of the companies esports division, before that he worked for the New Jersey Devils NHL franchise. Cherry will take care of business while Publisher Jim Lee will, according to DC quote “Lee will bring his unmatched creativity, passion and innate knowledge of the DC characters and canon to the company’s efforts to evolve the brand and create relevance for new audiences around the world,” unquote Think of things like DC Fandome, stuff like that.

Usually I save the sad news for the end of the broadcast, but this one hit kinda hard. Tonight we remember Actor Chadwick Boseman who passed away after a four year long battle with colon cancer. I think what hit everyone hard was not only was no one really aware of the colon cancer, but that he’s had stage three cancer since 2016. Which means that while he was filming Black Panther, he was in the midst of this.

Let’s start at the beginning, Chadwick Boseman was born in South Carolina on November twenty ninth, 1976. He grew up and went to Howard University in Washington DC and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts for directing. Interestingly enough, one of his teachers was actress Phalicia Rashad. He got his first tv role in 2003 in an episode of Third Watch and he also was a recurring character on All My Children that year, but after voicing concerns about the racist stereotyping in the scripts, he was fired, ironically Michael B Jordan, his futute Black Panther co star would take over the role. He would also appear in Law & Order, CSI NY, ER, Castle, and Fringe. His first movie role was in 2008’s The Express The Ernie Davis Story. In 2013, he was cast as Jackie Robinson in the biopic 42. He also starred in Draft Day and another biopic role in Get on Up, this time as James Brown. In 2016, he got to become a superhero as Black Panther in Captain America Civil War, before he got to star in Black Panther though he played future supreme court justice Thurgood Marshall in the biopic Marshall, which he also co produced.   In 2018 and 2019, he played Black Panther in the Black Panther and Avengers Infinity War and the sequel Avengers Endgame. After that he starred and produced 21 bridges and was cast in the Spike Lee Netflix series Da 5 Bloods. His final projects are the movie Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and Marvel’s What If?. He was just a few months younger than me. He was 43. So if you’re about 45 and older, check with your doctor, Let’s make cancer go away. If you have any of the following symptoms or have a family history, see your doctor now. Symptoms

Signs and symptoms of colon cancer include:

A persistent change in your bowel habits, including diarrhea or constipation or a change in the consistency of your stool

Rectal bleeding or blood in your stool

Persistent abdominal discomfort, such as cramps, gas or pain

A feeling that your bowel doesn’t empty completely

Weakness or fatigue

Unexplained weight loss

Many people with colon cancer experience no symptoms in the early stages of the disease. When symptoms appear, they’ll likely vary, depending on the cancer’s size and location in your large intestine.

When to see a doctor

If you notice any persistent symptoms that worry you, make an appointment with your doctor.

Talk with your doctor about when to begin colon cancer screening. Guidelines generally recommend that colon cancer screenings begin around 50. Your doctor may recommend more frequent or earlier screening if you have other risk factors, such as a family history of the disease.
