What's On The Exam Table?

In TV and movie news, Black Widow has a new trailer that provides some context and Space Jam dropped a trailer. DC cancelled plans for New Gods and Aquaman spinoff The Trench. HBO Max is about to show Colin Firth a Staircase, while Paramount is working on a new Transformers movie with Charm City King director, Angel Manuel Soto. Netflix secured two Knives Out sequels but says goodbye to Rege-Jean Page of Bridgerton fame. The Witcher Season 2 is finally finished filming. Fresh off the heels of Godzilla vs. Kong, Adam Wingard was announced to direct a Thundercats movie. Donald Faison and Nicholas Podany were cast in CW’s upcoming live-action Powerpuff Girls series. Amanda Seyfried replaces Kate McKinnon as Elizabeth Holmes in Hulu’s upcoming series, The Dropout. NBCUniversal has started talking about pulling their movies from other services to bulk up Peacock.

In reviews, we revisit yet another childhood show remade – Punky Brewster. We also got a little Irregular on Netflix with some teens working with Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. The main dish this week is Godzilla vs. Kong where there was surprisingly a clear winner.

In gaming news, some Call of Duty cheaters got a little more than they bargained for, and Fortnite really, REALLY seems to be doing its best to get Steven interested, with the newest addition of raptors to the game. Apex Legends is getting some Titanfall content, but Ninja Gaiden 1 & 2 remaster hopefuls are about to be disappointed, because some original code was lost. Someone sold a Super Mario Bros sealed copy for an insane amount.
