What's On The Exam Table?

In TV and movie news, AMC Theaters decided to postpone their reopenings after Disney delayed Mulan and WB Studios did the same with TENET and Bill & Ted Face the Music were delayed. In the meantime, Christopher Nolan films are now available in Fortnite. Yes, you heard that correctly. Why did the chicken cross the road? To get to Netflix and film Chicken Run 2. HBO Max decides to extend their DC Extended Universe films on the service. Apparently less than a month on the service that put them to the forefront of marketing and branding wasn't long enough...weird. Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness gets another villain cast. Evil Dead lives on with another film. VelociPastor does too, but it's complicated. Cobra Kai gets rehomed on Netflix. Amazon Prime puts a watch party application into beta. Elizabeth Banks rides a The Magic School Bus. Animated shows make moves with voice acting to strengthen diversity. Brooklyn 99 starts over to tackle what a police show is in 2020. The Princess Bride gets a remake on Quibi that nobody asked for...seriously, nobody. Margot Robbie teams up with the Birds of Prey writer to sail the seas of The Pirates of the Caribbean. Universal takes a dive into the world of Atlantis. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are getting another reboot. No wonder they never grow up! Twister also gets a reboot, but it's not about the game. Michael Keaton might be joining the DCEU or should I say Batman Returns...Returns? NAILED IT! 

In trailers, we talk about the new Unsolved Mysteries series headed to Netflix. There is a new trailer for The King's Man. Honestly, we forgot it was a thing. Lastly, The Boys Season 2 dropped a few clips and a trailer.

In reviews, Jessica watched the Hulu series Mrs. America and we finish the episode with our thoughts on Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga. Will there be spoilers? Probably not! But seriously, there won't be.
