Show Notes Episode 56:Goodbye 2019 & Episode 57: Hello 2020

Tonight! It’s the end of the decade, but not the end of the news on this edition of Multiverse Tonight!

Hello and welcome to the SciFi edition of Multiverse Tonight. This is episode 56, 

Welcome to the last episode of the year. I would add the “of the decade” line, but I haven’t been broadcasting all decade. You know, I could have just not done a new episode this week, I know lots of podcasts that take a vacation between Christmas and New Years, but that’s just not me.

I would like to thank you for listening to my words today. 2020 looks like it’s gonna be a busy year, lots of new movies, new show ideas in the offing and so forth. Who knows, maybe I’ll create a second podcast? Of course, you can always help me out by showing me some appreciation by donating money or tweeting at me etcetera. Let’s have a good 2020 and be sure to think about your decisions, weather in the voting booth or elsewhere. Let’s get it on….

Star Wars

I’m gonna admit right now, I’m not gonna have a lot of Star Wars news in this episode, you know why? Most of the news that comes out at this time is about things in and around the rise of skywalker. Which I haven’t seen , so I’m kinda avoiding spoilers right now. I will be seeing it, just not till after the first of the year.  But there are a few news items….

\

To start off, Since it’s new years, you’ll want to drink to the new year, how bout a new cocktail from The Mandalorian star Pedro Pascal. The actor shared a picture of a green cocktail with two lime wedges for ears and what looks like prunes for eyes on Instagram with the captain quote To getting through the holidays with a little bit of force. Good luck, everyone.” unquote What his cocktail was made from is anyone’s guess. There are probably dozens of permutations of a Baby Yoda cocktail on the internet. One version served at the Golden Tiki  bar in Las Vegas according to the las vegas review journal has Rhum agricole, demerara syrup and fresh lime juice, finished with a spritz of absinthe andLuxardo cherry eyes and lime wedge ears. His sense of style is provided by his bar napkin Jedi robe, tied with a piece of twine, and a bar-straw lightsaber . So if you wanna try one, I guess you should fly to vegas, or figure it out yourself. Drink at your own risk, it could be evil….

And speaking of The Child, I bet you think the lack of merchandise is particularly evil, Well blame Donald Glover for the lack of merchandise for Baby Yoda.

The Mandalorian creator Jon Favreau says that  a conversation with Donald about Beyonce during the Lion King remake convinced the director to be more reserved. Speaking with the Hollywood Reporter”We were talking about music and pop culture and he was saying that what people really like now is to be surprised, because it doesn’t happen that much,” “When Beyoncé did an album, she would just put it online and everybody would react to it. Just putting it out there spurred a conversation that would become more viral and bring more genuine attention than any marketing.” quote Disney is now going full speed ahead with merchandise for the character named The Child including dolls, Funko pops and shirts. However the slowness to get on the sales wagon might have cost Disney around three million or about how much they made in a couple of hours of showings of The Rise of Skywalker.

By the way, preorders for the Blu ray of The Rise of Skywalker are available now. Including a 4k ultra hd blu ray set of the entire nine film saga on 27 disks that retails for two hundred forty nine dollars. No release date has been officially announced but it’s guesstimated to come around the end of March.

If you noticed that Kelly Marie Tran’s Rose Tico was barely in the Rise of Skywalker, don’t believe the haters that it was because her character was disliked. Instead it was just a matter of her original role in the film. Chris Terrio, the writer of The Rise of Skywalker explained to Awards Daily quoteWell, first of all, J.J. and I adore Kelly Marie Tran. One of the reasons that Rose has a few less scenes than we would like her to have has to do with the difficulty of using Carrie’s footage in the way we wanted to. We wanted Rose to be the anchor at the rebel base who was with Leia. We thought we couldn’t leave Leia at the base without any of the principals whom we love, so Leia and Rose were working together. As the process evolved, a few scenes we’d written with Rose and Leia turned out to not meet the standard of photorealism that we’d hoped for. Those scenes unfortunately fell out of the film. The last thing we were doing was deliberately trying to sideline Rose. We adore the character, and we adore Kelly – so much so that we anchored her with our favorite person in this galaxy, General Leia.” unquote

Never fear fans, The Mandalorian WILL be back, creator and Showrunner Jon Favreau has confirmed on twitter that the Disney Plus series will launch in the Fall of 2020. Rumors are that several established Skywalker saga characters will make appearances on the show.

Star Trek

The only reason for me to get CBS All Access is almost here, Star Trek Picard is just days away and there’s plenty of supplementary material to go over, the comic series is out now and in February comes the book, Star Trek Picard: The Last Best Hope by Una McCormack. Much like the comic book, this is another prequel to the series and will introduce some of the characters that we will see in the show. No word on the exact plot of the book, but it will be out just 3 days before my birthday on February 11th.

Meanwhile, that other Star Trek  Discovery might just be closer to its third season premiere than we thought. Sonequa Martin Green, speaking with Radio Times dot com said of the third season quote“It’s definitely coming up 2020,” “And I would venture to say closer to early 2020 than anything, but yeah, it’s going to be incredible. I can tell you that. I think it’s a stunning season.

“That’s why it’s so stirring to me… in like this moment right now, to talk about the beginning, that’s what is so interesting to me – to be where we are now, but to know where we came from. And I really think we did what all shows should do, and got better with age and get better with time It’s really quite gripping to see where we’ve come and how we continue to build and grow, to higher heights and deeper depths.” unquote. Season three sees the Discovery now in the far future. Where they will be no tribble at all with established continuity. 

Pocket Books is looking back at the untold era between The Motion Picture and The Wrath of Kahn with Star Trek The Higher Frontier by Christopher L Bennett. The novel also connects to the original series episode Is There In Truth No Beauty? And features Dr. Miranda Jones and the Medusan ambassador. Here’s the blurb quote “Investigating the massacre of a telepathic minority, Captain James T. Kirk and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise confront a terrifying new threat: faceless, armored hunters whose extradimensional technology makes them seemingly unstoppable. Kirk must team with the powerful telepath Miranda Jones and the enigmatic Medusans to take on these merciless killers in an epic battle that will reveal the true faces of both enemy and ally!” unquote The novel will be out on March tenth. 

IDW has released the Star Trek comic book listing for those coming out in March, fist up they introduce us to the mirror Universe Kahn …wait wouldn’t that just be Nhak? NHHHHHHHAAAAKKK! In Star Trek Hell’s Mirror. Not only do we return to the mirror universe we are shepherded by JM DeMatteis who is returning to the Star Trek universe for the first time in 40 years. His last contribution was the final issue of Marvel’s Star Trek series in 1982. Here’s the blurb: Legendary writer J.M. DeMatteis returns to Star Trek for the first time in nearly 40 years! And it’ll be well worth the wait, as he tackles two of the franchise’s most popular concepts: Khan Noonien Singh and the Mirror Universe! Unquote the book has art by Matthew Dow Smith and retails for 4.99

Also out is Star Trek Year Five issue 12 written by Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly with art by Stephen Thompson. Here’s the blurb quot eAt last—the moment you’ve been waiting for since the first page of issue #1! With a villain revealed, a stranded crew, and a ship on a collision course with total destruction, Captain James T. Kirk will have to face the biggest challenge of his life on his own!Written by showrunners Jackson Lanzing & Collin Kelly (Green Arrow, Nightwing, Gotham City Garage) this is a perfect jumping-on point before the second year of the series begins. It retails for 3.99. You can preorder those and other comics from mycomicshop and things from another world. Links to those are in our affiliate marketplace on our home page.

Not often I speak of he who should not be named. But American President Donald Trump has created the United States Space Force, when he signed a new defense budget into law. The newest branch of the military will be kind of a hand me down right now with a small staff of 200 military and civilians mostly US air force as it will be under the aegis of the Air Force Dept. and a budget of 40 million. Tech Entrepreneur Elon Musk seemed to praise this development by; quoting two words,quote Starfleet Begins unquote

Hate to tell you this Elon, I don’t think exploring space is what these guys wanna do. 

May twenty third will be a special day in the city of Bloomington Indiana. A few episodes back I told you about the fundraising campaign to get a monument erected in Bloomington celebrating the fact that the city will be the birthplace of Captain Kathryn Janeway. The Captain Janeway Bloomington Collective met its goal of 12,500 and will receive matching funds from the Indiana Housing and Community Development. So on May twenty third, just 3 days after the fictional characters birthday, a bust bearing the likeness of Kate mulgrew’s character will be unveiled in downtown Bloomington. The bust will be on a limestone base shaped like the Starfleet delta and include an informational tablet about the captain of the Voyager.

ViacomCBS now owns a forty nine percent stake in Miramax. They bought it fromMiramax owner  Qatar based BeIN media Group for a total of three hundred seventy five million dollars. ViacomCBS will pay one hundred fifty million upfront and the rest will be in forty five million a year for five year in funds to produce new film and tv projects. Paramount will get an exclusive long term deal for Miramax’s back catalog. President and CEO of Viacom CBS Bob Bakish in a statement said quote“Miramax is a renowned global studio, responsible for some of the most iconic films of the last three decades, including ‘Pulp Fiction,’ ‘Good Will Hunting,’ ‘Kill Bill’ and more,” “This partnership with beIN will be a unique opportunity to gain access to a valuable library, deepening our already substantial pool of IP at a time when demand for premium content is only accelerating. We look forward to working closely with the Miramax management team as we explore new ways to deliver its titles across a variety of platforms and create new, compelling projects.” unquote Now if they wanna make me happy, release Kevin Smith’s movies all in High Def.

It’s the end of the year and that means lists. Forbes has released a list of the highest paid Youtubers and it’s not me. Did you know we have a Youtube channel? Anyway. The number one on the list was Ryan Kaji, the q year old kid behind Ryan’s World. He has 22.9 million subscribers and made 26 million dollars. I wonder who the new Youtube FTC rules will affect his channel since I’m guessing most of his views are from kids. Also on the list is Dude Perfect, Anastasia (Rad-zin-skaya) Radzinskaya and PewDiePie among others. PewDiePie is apparently taking a break from Youtube and has also quit twitter. Maybe he’s decided to look at the world outside of just four walls. 

Uncharted has possibly lost another director. Director Travis Knight might be leaving Uncharted, based on the video game series of the same name, Travis made his directorial debut last year with Bumblebee. Insiders are blaming the exit on schedulting issues as Actor Tom Holland has a Spiderman  movie due out in July of 2021 and that production might push Uncharted back away fronm the December 18th 2020 date. Tom Holland will be playing Drake in Uncharted and Mark Wahlberg will play Drake’s friend Sully.

The rise of Skywalker has done very well at the box office, posting the second best domestic Christmas Day ever and had reached over half a billion by the day after Christmas. So let’s take a look at the box office report and see what it’s got now.

Episode 57

Tonight! It’s a new year and a new decade, but the news rolls on in this comic edition of Multiverse Tonight.

Greetings and welcome to the comics edition of Multiverse Tonight. Episode 57.

Welcome to 2020. So how was 2019 for you, read anything good? Watch any good tv or movies? Are you ready for this year? Me personally, I’m at a point in my life where the years just run together. It’s only when you look at the big picture do you see how much it all changed.

DC

So Watchmen was a pretty great show. But something we never got? A cameo with President robert redford. The actor became president in the Watchmen Universe after nixon.  Apparently showrunner Damon Lindelof did leave the door open for a cameo but it was not to be. Lindelof told collider quote “We wrote Robert Redford a letter, describing our intention with his usage in the show. And, also, what our general sense of what Watchmen was to us. And, an incredibly high esteem in which we hold him both as an actor, and a purveyor of the arts. And, also, as a prominent progressive liberal, who shares many of the same ideologies with a number of us, behind the scenes. And, we left the door open in that letter, should he choose to respond to it, that we would invite him to come and play on the show, if he were game. He’s a very busy man, and he has yet to respond to the letter. But, hopefully, one day we will cross paths, and that door will always be open,” unquote Unfortunately there are currently no plans for a second season.

Well unfortunately there won’t be another season of Lucifer either, however congratulations to the show are in order as the show has been named number one on tv times most streaming series list. The list is based upon global data from the apps users. It beat our Stranger Things, 13 reasons why, The Handmaid’s Tale, The Umbrella Academy, Black Mirror and more. Lucifers final season is currently in production.

Todd Phillips director of the mega hit Joker wants you to keep an open mind when it comes to the origins of the Joker, quote “There’s many ways to look at the movie. He might not be Joker,”. “This is just a version of a Joker origin. It’s just the version this guy is telling in this room at a mental institution. I don’t know that he’s the most reliable narrator in the world, you know what I’m saying?” unquote Phillips said this in Joker Vision and Fury on of the featurettes on the home video release. In other words, there is no defined Joker backstory, it’s whatever he feels like.

Mark Hamill is thankful this season, sure not for the Rise of Skywalker and the end of The Skywalker Saga, but for a role just as famous. Mark took to twitter and tweeted out a few Joker centric images with the tweet quote I can’t tell you how much 1 single role has meant to me. Because of him people recognized the gleeful psycho within-Because of him a new career of megalomaniacal villainy opened up & I was now able to frighten young children-I will be grateful for that…Forever🃏#BeingTheJoker unquote To some he will always be Luke Skywalker, but to others he will forever be the Joker.

DC’s Geoff Johns is teasing some Green Lantern news is coming. Speaking with Newsarama he said quote “It’s a really exciting year to have Doomsday Clock finished up,” “I’m doing more comics. Stargirl trailer’s out. Wonder Woman’s on its way. And a lot of work with Green Lantern outside comics that hopefully you’ll hear about soon.” unquote So what could this Green lantern project be, a Green Lantern Corps movie? Green Lantern The series on HBO Max perhaps. Whatever it is, remember, no animated suits. Just green, the only thing that should be animated are the ring creations.

Black Panther star Michael B Jordan was asked by MTV News if there was any truth to the rumors of him playing Superman in the future.  The actor responded quote “I’ve been rumored to play Morpheus to Superman to Power Rangers and everything in between, so it’s like, I’m kind of used to the rumors I’m playing something,” he said. “But anything that I do dive into has to be done the right way. It has to be full of authenticity.” unquote. Michael is a fan of comics and Variety has reported that he doesn’t want to commit to playing Superman when he has so many other projects on his plate. 

In a tweet this past Saturday, David Ayer’s confirmed that Suicide Squad would have had more of a connection to Justice League of an original plot element involving Enchantress stayed in.”It was supposed to be a boom tube as she was under control of a motherbox,” “All the Apokalypse [sic] elements were stripped out late in the game. The machine concept was an attempt to create a ticking clock and world threat.” unquote.  Hmmm. DO you think they should have kept the boomtube in?

I don’t know how to feel about this one. Okay, you might have figured out the past few episodes that I really don’t care for Robert Pattinson. He just doesn’t work as an actor for me and his casting as Batman in Matt reeves The Batman is *sigh* Well Mr. Pattinson recently did an Interview with The Guardian where he revealed how sick he was of questions about the movie and that he just wanted to get down to filming already saying quote “I’m already remembering what it’s like to talk about a movie where there’s an expectation. Whenever you say anything, people are like, ‘Argh! You idiot!’ Like, dude, I haven’t even started yet,” unquote When the interviewer pointed out that the having this role is a lot to live up to Pattinson said quote “But there is no harsher critic of myself than myself, so I don’t need to worry about anyone else.” unquote When asked what he might do if the movie totally bombs, Pattinson giggled and gave shot back quote “Porn,” “But art house porn.”  unquote I’m conflicted. I don’t know if I’d rather see him do porn or not. He might be a terrible porn actor as well. 

DC has announced that Superman issue nineteen, the first since Superman revealed to the world his secret identity will be pushed back a couple of weeks from January 8th to the 22nd. Issues 20 and 21 however are still on schedule.

The New York Times best selling authors Shannon and Dean Hale are writing a new graphic novel for young readers. Diana Princess of the Amazons looks at the pre Wonder Woman’s life as a young girl on an island with no other children. Themyscira after all never had any children on it, just strong adult warriors. The book has artwork by Victoria Yang, who is a veteran of animation and it making her debut for DC Comics. Shannon has always been a fan of Wonder Woman growing up with the character and even driving a minivan with the Wonder Woman logo on the hood.  Newsarama asked the couple when they chose to do a story about her as a child and Shannon replied quote We were fascinated with the idea of growing up as the only kid in your entire world. And that’s just not something we’d seen explored very deeply with Wonder Woman.

Yes, she’s an Amazon, and she’s incredibly strong and has a sense of justice and is one of the most powerful superheroes. And we’ve seen her relationship with her sisters on Themyscira.

But what was it like before that?What did it feel like to be the only kid?

Given that we were writing these books for younger readers, I thought that was something kids would be really fascinated with. Imagine being the only kid in your entire world, and then imagine that everyone else is an immortal, perfect warrior.

How do you find your place there?

That’s where we began.

Diana Princess of the Amazons comes out on January seventh.

MArvel

Ryan Renoylds appearing on Live with Kelly and Ryan confirmed that they are currently working on Deadpool 3. He told the hosts quote “Yeah we’re working on it right now with the whole team,” “We’re over at Marvel [Studios] now, which is like the big leagues all of a sudden. It’s kinda crazy. So yeah, we’re working on it.” unquote So I’ guessing same Deadpool with access to the MCU? Maybe? We can hope.

Kevin Fiege is backing off the idea that Doctor Strange and the multiverse of Madness is a horror movie telling the New York Film Academy that quote “I wouldn’t necessarily say that’s a horror film, but … it’ll be a big MCU film with scary sequences in it.” unquote He also confirmed that some new characters will be debuting in the movie as well. “The next Doctor Strange film, for instance, features some new MCU characters which will be making their debut in that movie you won’t expect or won’t guess who it is but we found a cool way to make it work because we want to make a particular type of movie there and there was a character who we always wanted to do something with who will fit really well there.”unquote Who it will be is still a mystery.

At the same event, Feige was asked how Marvel determines which chatacteres will make the jump from the comic page to the big screen and his answer contained a bit of news quote “Sometimes you’re choosing the title hero, you’re choosing which main character or main team you want to bring to the screen,”“And often times, as you’re making and developing the movie, [asking], ‘Who will come into it? Who will fit into it?’”

“Like Shang-Chi, we’ve wanted to make that movie for a long time. We want to make a movie with a 98% Asian cast,” “And then you talk about, as you develop the movie, what other heroes can you bring into it, if you need them? And in the case of Black Panther [in Captain America: Civil War], it was the greatest thing that ever happened.”

Shang-Chi and teh Legend of the ten rings will star Simu Liu, Awkwafina and Tony Chiu-Wai Leung and will lead off Marvel Studios offerings in 2021.

Marvel’s What If series will have a longer season than any other Disney Plus Marvel show. WandaVision, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and oki all have six episode seasons. But in a new interview with Buzzfeed Brazil, Kevin Feige revealed that What If will have a ten episode first season. Quote “I’m very happy that we’re doing the What If…? series for Disney+ right now, and I’ve seen most of them. We have ten for Season 1, we’re already working on the next ten for Season 2,” he said. “We’ve revealed one that is very exciting, we’ve talked about it for years, which is the one where Peggy Carter gets the Super Soldier serum and becomes Captain Carter. That’s the very first episode, and I’m excited for people to see that. I’m excited to see the finished version of that, and I’m excited for the world to see it.”“What If…? is based on a comic series that we’ve loved for years, where they take a storyline you know and change one element, and see how things could get different,” Feige said. “So the 23 films of the MCU that you know are gonna showcase one little difference in each episode, and see how things change.” The show will be narrated by Jeffery Wright as the Watcher and feature an all star cast from the Marvel movies. But be prepared to wait, we’re still about 18 months away as it will premiere in Summer of 21.

James Cameron does what James Cameron does.  And he seems to be certain that his Avatar sequels will break the current all time global box office record set by Avenges Endgame. He told USA today that quote “I think it’s a certainty,” “But let’s give Endgame their moment and let’s celebrate that people are going to the movie theater.””I don’t want to sound snarky after I took the high road (by offering congratulations),”. “But they beat us by one quarter of a percent. I did the math in my head while driving in this morning. I think accountants call that a rounding error.” So let’s look at the math. Avengers Endgame made 2, 797, 800, 564 globally beating our Avatar’s 2, 029, 450, 992 that’s a difference of 768 million 349 thousand 572 dollars. That’s more than a rounding error. Avatar 2 is coming on December seventeenth of 2021.

Show Notes: Episode 52:Baby Yoda's Merchandising Bonanza and Episode 53: Sorry Robert, Batman IS a hero

Tonight! Star Trek 4 is back on, Baby Yoda is hotter than sliced bread and Trouble on the Satellite of love, all that and more on this edition of Multiverse Tonight!

Welcome to the scifi edition of Multiverse Tonight.

So did you buy anything on Black Friday?  I did, have you noticed that I sound different bought myself a new AT 2020 mic from Sweetwater.com, I also upgraded my tv setup with an Amazon Fire TV Cube. It’s nice to be able to tell my digital assistant to turn on the tv. Picked up a few blu rays from work. Other than that not much, I have my eyes on convention season next year. 2020 is going to be a good year.

Anyway let’s get to the news…

Star Trek

Star Trek 4 is apparently back from the dead. The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that the Legion and Fargo creator Noah Hawley will direct the fourth film based in the JJ Verse. This film is, of course, a different film than the Quentin Tarantino movie that has been in gestation for a couple of years. And this is totally different than the movie that was in the works earlier this year that would have had Chris hemsworth back as Kirk’s father. Mister Hawley will produce the movie with his 26 Keys shingle alongside Bad robot. No idea on when this movie will be made or distributed.

CBS Television Studios and the Television Academy Foundation are joining forces to launch the Star Trek command training program, a new internship program for college students. The program will launch in 2020 and will reflect the Star Trek franchise’s core values of inclusion and diversity. The program will place two internes per semester on a current Star Trek series based in LA.  Selected interns will actively engage in the writers room, wardrobe design, on set production, animation and post production.

The Academy will oversee the application, vetting and enrollment of the interns and CBS will do the mentorships and program curriculum. The Academy foundation will also give the interns lifetime professional support through their alumni program. The application period starts now through January 21, 2020 with final selections being made at the end of March. 

William Shatner has been awarded The Order of Canada, one of Canada’s highest civilian honors. The award is given to Canadians for outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation. Honors are given out by the Governor General of Canada from nominations from the public with recommendation from the Order’s Advisory Council.

He was actually appointed to the Order back in 2017, but he’s been apparently too busy to receive the award.

Doctor Seuss Enterprises is firing back at ComicMix after they lost the case over Oh The Places You’ll Boldly Go!, a parody of Oh the Place you’ll Go!.

Star Wars

The Mandalorians “Baby Yoda” character seems to be causing baby fever online ever since the character debuted in the first episode of the series. While not actually Yoda, the character will have merchandise hitting store shelves soon just in time for the holidays. His image has been plastered on shirts, mugs, bags, phone cases and tumblers on the shop disney site. It’s not great merchandise and seems kinda half assed. Hopefully better merch will come soon.

 JJ Abrams had a unique reaction to the death of Supreme Leader Snoke in the last jedi. He laughed. Talking with rolling Stone the director of The Rise of Skywalker said “When I read his first draft, it made me laugh because I saw that was [Johnson’s] take and his voice. I got to watch cuts of the movie as he was working on it, as an audience member. And I appreciated the choices he made as a filmmaker that would probably be very different from the choices that I would have made. Just as he would have made different choices if he had made Episode VII.” What did surprise him? Luke Skywalker he them quote “I felt the biggest surprise was how dark Luke was. That was the thing that I thought: “Oh, that was unexpected.” And that’s the thing The Last Jedi undeniably succeeds at, which is constant subversion of expectation. The number of things that happened in that movie that aren’t the thing you think is going to happen is pretty fun.”

In that interview JJ talked about Rey’s path since The Force Awakens and how she’s taken to the Force like a fish to water, even faster than her mentor Luke Skywalker. JJ said quote Yeah, spooky, right?”Abrams with a smile in an interview with Rolling Stone when the subject of Rey’s Force prowess came up. “It’s a fair point. It’s not an accident.”

Respawn entertainment Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has revealed a striking piece of backstory about Star Killer base. Namely that it used to be the Jedi Planet Ilum. The planet was located in what was known as the unknown regions and was a sacred Jedi site where Padways would harvest their kyber crystals for their own lightsabers. However after the fall of the Jedi, the Empire mined the planet and used the crystals for the primary weapons on the death stars. Apparently the First Order went even farther using the planet’s core to destroy the New republic. The game is now available on Playstation 4, Xbox one and PC.

You got tickets for opening night of the Rise of Skywalker, why not go dressed in style in your new Star wars sneakers from Adidas. There are three different styles. The Ultra Boost S&L designed after the X-Wing fighter with gray and orange colors and the phrases Stay on target and The force will be with you always on them.

These elements will meld with a gray and blue upper and will come emblazoned with the phrases, “JUMP TO LIGHTSPEED” and, of course, “NEVER TELL ME THE ODDS.” Dope.

And the Adidas Alphaedge 4D with a uniquely 3D printed midsole and inspired by the death star. The shoe’s midsole will still be in the 4D line’s signature mint green while the upper will be a matte black. It’ll come with “THAT’S NO MOON” and “THE POWER OF THE DARK SIDE” printed on the shoe. These shoes are now available on the Adidas website.

Disney Plus and Netflix are coexisting… for now. According to a report in Business Insider, Disney Plus has yet to have had a major impact on Netflix.Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson suggests he has not seen an increase in the 1700 Netflix subscribers that he has surveyed who plan to cancel Netflix in favor of Disney plus. He said quote “We have not seen an increase in the percentage of Netflix subscribers who expect to cancel Netflix in favor of Disney+,”. “In other words, most existing Netflix subscribers appear to be trending towards multiple streaming video subscriptions.” unquote So I guess the question for 2020 becomes how many streaming services are too much?

Doctor Who Showrunner Chris Chibnall is not going anywhere, in fact he’s already working on season thirteen. In an interview with radio times, Chibnall pushed back against rumors that he would be leaving the show, rumors that have been going around since 2018. He told Radio times quote Please write this verbatim: Somebody made that up, it was a lie,” Chibnall said. “It’s 100% Grade-A—shall I say nonsense, or shall I say bullshit?”“We’re already planning the next series after this series unquote 

He also said that they would be taking more storytelling risks this season quote “It feels like a step up,” “It’s probably more ambitious than last year. Scale, storytelling, everything. I would say we are aiming to keep moving forward and up. There are bigger moments this year.“”Last year was a recruiting year for the show, and I think we managed to recruit some people for the show,”. “We’re building on last year. There are lots of new faces, a few old faces. There are some things trickling through, which might be important. It’s different! I think you always need to take new, big risks from a storytelling point of view.”

Doctor Who will return with season twelve in 2020.

M. Night Shyamalan’s Apple TV show hasn’t even premiered but Apple has already given the show an order for season 2. The first three episodes of Servant debuts on Apple TV this week. The show is about a young troubled couple who replace their newborn baby with a lifelike doll after their baby dies from health complications. It stars Lauren Ambrose, Nell Tiger Free and rupert Grint.

An analysis of viewer data collected and analyzed by Broadband Choices shows that viewership of The Walking Dead started after Negan’s first appearance in the season six finale Last Day on Earth. The first episode of Season Seven saw the gruesome executions of Abraham and Glenn. However it’s not all bad news Season 9 saw a noticeable uptick in the ratings and the current season  has been the highest rated season on Rotten Tomatoes.

Well everything must come to an end again and again. Mystery Science Theater 3000 has been canceled, for the thrid time in it’s history. This time by Netflix. Show host Jonah Ray revealed the bad news in a post quote “So, Netflix decided to not do another season of MST3K. We are off to Get Down in Lilyhammer while the OA helps us take it One Day at a Time. We will be in group therapy with Tuca & Bertie, Jessica Jones & Lady Dynamite. The sessions will be run by Gypsy (w/ Naomi Watts.)” Ray tweeted in a thread that name-checked the other shows that Netflix has canceled over the years. He went on to note that MST3K has always found a way “figure out how to survive,” singling out runs on Comedy Central, Syfy, Rifftrax and Cinematic Titanic. “Now if only I can convince @shudder to pick us up and let us share a night with Joe Bob Briggs?” unquote MST3k has it’s known originally ran on Comedy Central for seven seasons, than on SciFi for 3 more seasons. It was revieved in 2015 by a Kickstarter campain and Netflix bought the streaming rights. Now the show is homeless again. Could it find a new home? I guess we will have to just wait and see. HBO, Apple, NBC do any of you wanna take a crack?

Finally tonight we say farewell to actor Michael J Pollard. He’s best known to sci fi fans for his guest appearance on the Star Trek episode Miri in 1966. He also acted on Lost in Space, I Spy, The Andy Griffith Show and The Lucy Show. He also played the homeless man in the Bill Murray holiday classic Scrooged and Mr. Mxyzptlk on the Superboy tv show.  He received an Academy Award Nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his role of CW Moss in 1967’s Bonnie and Clyde. He died at the age of 80 in Los Angeles from cardiac arrest.

Well that brings us to the end of another sci fi edition of Multiverse Tonight

EPISODE 53

Tonight! Stargirl heads to the CW, Spider-Woman returns to comics and a long game of Monopoly, that and more on this comic edition of Multiverse Tonight.

Greetings and welcome to the comics edition of Multiverse Tonight. Episode 53

Can you believe we’re in December already? This year has just booked along. So do you have a favorite comic book this year? Or a favorite comic book movie? What do you think was the biggest story of the year? I guess these are the questions you ask at the end of the year? I would be interesting to tap your brain. Drop me a message on Twitter, Facebook or email multiversetonight@multiversetonight.com or just go to the contact page on the website.

DC

A billion dollars makes people do crazy things. Like make sequels. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros is going forward with a sequel to Joker, bringing back Todd Phillips to direct and cowrite alongside Scott Silver. A deal for Joaquin Phoenix hasn’t been made but he most likely will be back as well.

On top of this, Todd Phillips met with Warner Bros Chairman toby Emmerich and got permission to develop solo movies for one or two other DC Villains. So I guess the question is who does he want to do a Joker type movie about?  Any thoughts.

Geoff Johns Stargirl series is heading to the CW. According to comicbook.com the series will first debut on the DC Universe app before getting a broadcast tv premiere a day later. Stargirl follows the adventures of high school student Courtney Whitmore played by Brec Bassinger as she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to spot the villains of the past. The series is due in 2020.

The Rock, Dwayne Johnson speaking with comic book dot com confirmed that the Justice Society of America will be introduced in the Black Adam movie. The justice society was DC’s original super hero team debuting in the 1940’s. No idea on the line up for that team .

News recently came out that producer Hiram Garcia in working out how to cross over Black Adam and Shazam. Maybe they should meet in Shazam 2?

Some more the Batman casting news. Man is this movie getting overstuffed. Director Matt reeves confirmed that John Turturro will be playing crime boss Carmine Falcone, the leader of the Falcone Crime Family in Gotham. He joins Andy Serkis, Colin Farrell, Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright and Robert Pattinson in the film, due out in June 25 of 2021. We all should expect our casting calls to be in the movie any day now.

While we’re on the subject of The Batman. This story has me kinda puzzled. Robert Pattinson in a new interview with Today had an interesting response to why he wanted to be a superhero. Pattinson responded quote”Batman’s not a superhero,” Pattinson replied. “It doesn’t count. You need to have like magical powers to be a superhero.” unquote. And apparently he said something similar to The New York Times quote  “Batman’s not a hero, though. He’s a complicated character,” Pattinson explained. “I don’t think I could ever play a real hero—there’s always got to be something a little bit wrong. I think it’s because one of my eyes is smaller than the other one.” unquote

Okay, Robert? Captain Sparkle Vampire? Batman is a hero. He’s just a dark superhero. His super powers are his brain. He can out think villians who have powers that would crush any other man. You might wanna read the source material before you defame the character. Okay Bob?

Some DC Comics news incoming Batman writer James Tynion the fourth has revealed his plans for the series when he takes it over in January. First up, Batman is going to “fix” Gotham City. James wrote in his newsletter THe Empire of the Tiny Onion quote  “He has just faced tremendous failure in the last year of story,” Tynion wrote, referring to the current “City of Bane” arc. “He lost his City, and lost his way… But now that he’s back, he has an almost manic intensity. He is going to fix things. He’s going to make it so nobody like Bane can ever do this to the city again.” unquote 

He will also keep the romance between Bruce and Catwoman going quote “With Selina on his arm, the ‘Playboy’ Bruce is dead,” Tynion continues. “Every waking minute is dedicated to the rebuild of Gotham City, both as Bruce Wayne as Batman. He is in control of every room he enters, and people are a little frightened of him. He is one of the richest people in the world, and he has experienced so much loss. But it’s clear he’s trying to make the city better. People admire him, because most people in his shoes would have left Gotham a long time ago.” unquote

However Tynion does say that the comic going forward will be an action horror superhero comic where the villains and Batman will be frightening quote “The villains of Gotham fear him, and he is going to take that fear and wield it like a weapon to get his city back under control,” writes Tynion. “Batman doesn’t just show up in broad daylight to scare his villains, he uses tricks and shadows, and voice modulation to make it seem like he can be anywhere and everywhere at once.” unquote He also compared Batman being like Michael Myers to the villains of Gotham. 

His run will have quote three big stories” that will also affect the other Bat titles and will have a rotating art team. Tony S Daniel, Guillem March and another unnamed artist.

His run on Batman begins January eighth with issue eighty six.

DC has announced a new Birds of Prey Giant will be released on January twenty-second , 2020. This special will come out just sixteen days before Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of ONe Harley Quinn comes out in theaters.

Marvel

A near mint copy of Marvel Comics Number One from 1939, the best copy of the comic in existence sold at auction for 1.26 million dollars at a public auction of vintage comics and comic book art held by Heritage Auctions in Dallas Texas on November twenty first. This copy was rated by the CGC at a 9.4. This comic also set a world record as the most expensive marvel comic book ever sold at auction. It was also the most expensive comic ever sold by Heritage auctions.

Spider-Woman is getting a new comic series, starting this March. The comic will be written by Karla Pancheco with art by Pere Perez. Jessica Drew aka Spider Woman recently came back to prominence after becoming a member of Marvel’s new Strikeforce team. Karala Pacheco is excited to tackle the character saying in a release quote I love Spider-Woman, and I’m incredibly excited to share this series with both new and old Jessica Drew fans alike. This is big, can’t miss, over-the-top action, some very surprising ‘venom blasts from the pasts,’ and also a TON of helicopter explosions. It’s a super fun adventure with a lot of twists and turns…and seriously, so many helicopter explosions. We’re taking Jess bigger and badder than she’s ever been before, and I can’t wait for readers to see what we’ve cooked up. Unquote 

New Ultraman comics are coming. Marvel and Tsuburaya Productions are teaming up for a series of new comics and graphic novels based on the Japanese anime series. The partnership was announced at the Tokyo Comic Con and was teased with art on Ultraman by artist Alex Ross. Marvel editor in chief CB Cebulski said in the press release quote “As one of the world’s most popular franchises, Ultraman has brought together some of the most passionate fandoms in pop culture today, and we can’t wait to bring his story to even more fans around the globe…Like Marvel, Ultraman captivated generations by telling spectacular stories grounded in the real world, and it continues to be a beloved classic through its television shows, movies, toys, games, comics, and more. We are so thrilled to introduce new chapters to the Ultraman Multiverse next year.” unquote 

Details about the new releases weren’t forthcoming, so we will have to wait for a later date to learn more. 

In an interview with GQ, Tim Blake Nelson revealed that The Incredible Hulk movie would have been the setup for The Leader to appear in three MCU films. Quote “I got called down to the lobby of the Mercer Hotel to meet Louis Leterrier and Gale Ann Hurd, who’s producer,” Nelson recalls to GQ. “They said, ‘We want you to play this science character,” and I’d read the script. He was a wildly eccentric guy, mainly in the second half of the movie.” “I thought that was interesting because I haven’t been in one of these movies before and they said, ‘Well, you’re going to become the villain in the next movie, so you’ll basically be signing up for three movies and you’re going to be this character called The Leader.’ And I thought ‘Oh my God, this is fantastic.'” unquote Unfortunately the film didn’t do well enough to get a sequel and ever since the Hulk has been a team-up character in other superhero’s movies. 

Tim Miller is now talking about his split from Deadpool over creative differences he had with star and producer Ryan Reynolds. He told KCRW’s The Business podcast quote “It became clear that Ryan wanted to be in control of the franchise,”  “You can work that way as a director, quite successfully, but I can’t. I don’t mind having a debate, but if I can’t win, I don’t want to play. And I don’t think you can negotiate every creative decision, there’s too many to make. So Ryan’s the face of the franchise, and he was the most important component of that, by far. So if he decides he wants to control it, then he’s going to control it.”“I’ve always been pretty good at the ‘moving on’ thing. I care deeply, and then you get to this point where you’ve gotta make a decision, and I’m pretty good about putting it in my rearview mirror. We had a meeting at Fox, and the writing was on the wall, so I said, ‘I get it. I’ll quit, and you guys can do what you need to do.’” unquote  Miller wanted more of a stylized sequel while Reynolds wanted to focus on the comedy . Deadpool 2 did quite well without Tim Miller, making 785 million at the box office. 

Venom 2 is starting filming under director Andy Serkis. Venom 2 will see the return also of Michelle Williams and Woody Harrelson as Cletus Kasady. Venom 2 will be out October second, 2020.

Miller in a statement said quote“This is not a decision I came to lightly,” “It’s one of the hardest I’ve had to make in my career. Ultimately, it feels like the right time for me to leave and take a little time to think about what comes next, but I do so, feeling immensely proud of the work we’ve done together and so grateful for the experience.” 

Miller has led the division for the past five years and is the latest WarnerMedia exec to hit the exit door since AT&T bought Time Warner.
