It looks like some big changes are coming to DC. It has been hard to be a DC fan with the directionless studio first skipping a Superman sequel, then releasing the abysmal Batman v Superman, followed by a lukewarm Suicide Squad, a box office crusher like Wonder Woman and now their under-performing Justice League, the company has announced a restructuring that will begin as early as January. This should not be shocking to anyone considering both Batman v Superman and Justice League were around 300 million in production and the loft Superbowl campaign for BvS cost DC an arm and leg that they never truly recovered from. Justice has managed to pull in just about 570 million after three weeks which is good and should keep it on some top ten if not top twenty list at the end of 2017. The issue is that DC's run will easily be toppled by next week's release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which will no doubt topple any record that is standing as of now. DC plans on integrating the comics film department into the main hub, giving it more priority which is a good idea considering the amount of money they are losing. They are also removing Jon Berg from running the overall DCEU and it looks like we have probably seen the last of Zack Snyder leeading any films for the company as well. This of course now throws into question all of the rumored "planned" films that DC had up it's sleeve, including the Joker spin off which would cast another actor in place of Jared Leto, Suicide Squad 2, the solo Batman movie (which has been a topic of immense controversy especially with Ben Affleck's lack of enthusiam), the unlikely-hood of a Cyborg solo film, a Green Lantern film, and Ezra Miller's Flash Point due out in three short years. DC seems to be in a tough position because while Suicide squad managed to pull in some revenue as well as Wonderman, their ensemble cast film did not. They could scrap everything entirely and go back to square one or we might see some major recast and a huge overhaul in direction coming early 2018. Either way, if DC wants to make good films and give the fans what they want, this is a good start that will hopefully workout in everyone's favor.
The breakout star from September's box office smash IT may have had his show cancelled but it looks like he's heading back to the big screen sooner than we thought. Jack D. Grazer has been cast in DC's Shazam film as Freedy Freeman, best friend to Billy Batson and the only person who knows his secret ability to transform into the famed Captain Marvel. Freedy Freeman also becomes Captain Marvel Jr. in the comics and while we can't be sure that is the direction this film is heading, it is certainly something to get excited about. Grazer easily stole the show for me in Stephen King's IT and if DC is willing to let some comedy propel this Superhero flick, I have no worries about him being a great addition to the expanding cast.
After months of speculation, it looks like the main cast for the live action Pikachu film is set and they have booked one major comic book star. Ryan Reynolds, star of Deadpool, will lead the Detective Pikachu alongside the long time Pokemon fav. With him will star Kathryn Newton from Paranormal Activity 4 and Supernatural, and Justice Smith is set to appear in next years Jurassic Park film. Rob Letterman who directed 2015's Goosebumps film is set to direct the movie which, as of now, does not have a release window but we should be getting one now that we have a good handful of the cast announced. Are you excited to see more Pokemon on the big screen?

If you have not heard about Olaf's Frozen Adventure then consider yourself lucky. Over the past few weeks since the release of Disney's Coco, Olaf has been all over the news for all the long reason. Instead of the normal (and generally short) pixar opening scene, Disney opted to instead read an insane 22 minute feature starring the obnoxious animated snowman from 2013's insanely popular Frozen. The fact that this scene was so long coupled lead many fans and critic to denounce the move, pretty much marking it the worst part of an otherwise critically acclaimed film. One critic even called the move "culturally tone-deaf." After all the bad press, it was surprising when Disney announced that they would be removing Olaf's Frozen Adventure from screenings before shortly clarifying that that was the plan all along. An executive according to EW commented that the run was slated until December 8th, even instructing one alleged theater to try and fit in another screening of Coco. Either way you cut it, its hard to imagine that Disney would remove a short if Olaf was well received and it is very strange that they had this planned all along and now Coco will screen as it without one. Regardless, Disney made a poor move but it looks like movie goers who have yet to catch Coco won't have to sit through this abomination pretty soon.
Looks like the upcoming Sabrina reboot won't be on the CW network after all. The studio which is responsible for developing the series won't be airing it on their networks with the news that Sabrina the Teenage Witch will now land on Netflix. This somewhat makes sense seeing as Netflix and CW already have an established exclusivity deal as well as the fact that a horror series will get away with more on the streaming giant. The show is said to be partially inspired by the CW's dark take on the Archie comics, Riverdale, and was meant to be a companion series but it now sounds like the show will operate its own dark universe. To be frank, I can't wait to see what they do with this series and I really hope they go all out!
Paladin's is getting ready to change up their loot box system and it looks like they're taking a page from the worst place possible. Multiple sources reported that the newest changes sound quite similar to EA's PR nightmare, Battlefront 2 which has been scrutinized heavily by gamers and critics alike to the point where EA suspended it all together. Paladin's will feature a card system that will allow characters to receive a boost in abilities. The cards, ranging 1-5 take round 43 duplicates in order to level them up to max, and seeing as htey are randomized drops in the loot boxes and not taking into account that gamers will more than likely see duplicates of cards they already have, the grind will take quite some time. Sadly, those with the monetary funds will be able to by pass all those long hours but just purchasing the loot boxes out right and increasing their chances of maxing out faster. The boost are fairly significant according to this Eurogamer article and the system change is already receiving a lot of negative attention. Either way, we will have to see if a free to play game can make this reward system work or if players are going to reject it out right like they did with EA.
