What's On The Exam Table?

In television and film, DC Fandome part 2 brought a new title for Young Justice season 4, Young Justice Phantoms. Doom Patrol is officially having a season 3 and HBO Max is the new home of the show. The CW Arrow-verse brings a new addition, Superman and Lois. The Flash movie will now be used as a soft reboot for the DCEU going forward. Wonder woman 1984 gets a disappointing delay until Christmas day. The Oscars have added new rules regarding best picture eligibility. Borat may have a sequel already completed, but where is it? Scream 5 brings Neve Campbell back. The Boys season 2 was review bombed all because of the episode release schedule. The Obi Wan Kenobi show might be a one off season, while The Mandalorian expands on the story's scope. Nicholas Cage’s Tiger King show finds a home at Amazon. The Walking dead finally ends after 11 seasons, but that doesn’t mean AMC is done with adding new spinoffs.

In gaming, Gamestop closes down more stores. EA removes the ads from UFC 4 after backlash. Nintendo reveals Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity. Borderlands 3 gets a bunch of updates from the Pax Online panel. Sony plans another Playstation 5 event in September. Will we finally get a price for the PS5? Microsoft reveals the Xbox Series S along with the price for the Xbox Series X. The prices may surprise you along with the All Access program to purchase one. Apple decides to let Xcloud on iOS, but it’s still complicated. Ubisoft had a second Ubiforward event with some new reveals of games.

In reviews, we talk about the new trailers for Dune and Star Trek Discovery season 3. Jessica gives her thoughts on a Hulu show called Shrill and The Mandela Effect. We also watched Primal and finished up with Bloodshot. It may be a Fast and Furious movie, but we aren’t quite sure.
