What's On The Exam Table?

In TV and movie news, we have new releases on streaming services. Black Lightning gets canceled on CW. Hulu raises their prices. What does Predator, Transformers, and Universal classic monsters all have in common? New movies in the works! HBO Max gained The Last of Us series, but also lost the showrunner for The Batman spinoff series. Zack Snyder has another update on the Justice League 2.0. Deadpool 3 is happening and brought in Bob's Burgers for the catering. Black Panther 2 hasn't recast yet, but that hasn't stopped its production from being on the prowl. In the mean time, we are also getting two Pink Panthers from MGM. Monster Hunter shifts the theatrical release up by 5 days. Wonder Woman 1984 will now be available on Christmas day to watch on HBO Max. 

In gaming news, CrossfireX and a few Annapurna Interactive titles get delayed to 2021. Don't forget to vote on the VGAs. Cyberpunk 2077 has been seen in the wild on PS4. Marvel's Avengers tries to make a comeback with Kate Bishop. GTA Online adds an entire island heist. Far Cry 6 may have a release date. Doom Eternal on the Nintendo Switch shifts over to a digital only release. A sealed copy of Super Mario Bros 3 sold at an auction for a lot of money. Insomniac releases the update to allow save transfers from PS4 to PS5 for Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered, along with a PS5 bricking glitch related to rest mode. 

Hope you all have a safe and happy Thanksgiving or just Thursday depending on where you live.
