Michael Caine Retire
AFTER 68 years in the film industry Sir Michael Caine is retiring, the legendary actor will be retiring after the release of his upcoming film ‘Best Sellers’ which is a movie about a cranky retired author who reluctantly embarks on a final book tour to help out a young publisher (Sounds pretty wholesome tbh).
The 88-year-old Christopher Nolan Favourite has sited spinal problems as one of the reasons for his retirement also the fact that “there’s not exactly scripts pouring out with a leading man who’s 88”, that is a fair point but if he waited a few more months we probably would’ve been approached by Christopher Nolan for another banger of a movie lol.
Netflix fires Employee Who Shared Confidential information
Dave Chappelle has been in the news lately for a joke he made in his latest Netflix stand-up special ‘The Closer’, the joke in the special saw Dave recieve a lot of backlash from the Trans community. An employee was fired by Netflix after sharing some confidential and “Commercially sensitive” information outside the company related to Dave’s new Stand-Up special, this was confirmed by Netflix’s spokesperson on friday.
The stand-up special is said to have been watched by 10 million homes since release which is huge numbers for a stand up special alone but I wanna know, Do you think the Chappelle joke is that much of a big deal? Do you think Netflix could’ve handled this better? Let’s Talk.
Squid Game Season 2 in the works?
Squid Game is officially Netflix’s most watched series ever pulling in 111 Million viewers which is wild because Netflix has over 209 Million subscribers, now with this success Netflix wants to give the people a second season of the extremely famous series. The Creator of Squid Game has said he may draw inspiration from fans to create the second season which sort of confirms the second season to be happenig.

Not only will fans see a second season of the popular series but also a Game, yes that’s right Netflix is working on a Squid Game Game which will most likely be an exclusive on their Game streaming service which is coming soon. A game for this series does not sound bad at all but the real issue is will netflix release the game too late? By the time the announce and release the game the hype for the series might be not as high as we see now but we’ll see.
Batman To Appear In Batgirl movie
Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah say “The real Batman” will appear in the upcoming HBO Max Batgirl movie which is expected to come out in 2022. The directors were asked by the folks at VRTNWS about which Batman will appear in the upcoming movie and after letting out a laugh they said “the real one”, with so many actors potraying the character at the moment their responses are pretty understandable. Fans and myself are hoping to hear more about this movie on DC’s Fandom event happening today.
My money is on Michael Keaton’s Batman being the one set to appear in the movie because unlike Batfleck or Rob’s Batman, I believe Warner Bros are going to make his version a less dark batman that can sort of appeal to everyone and be a mentor figure in his world/universe, I don’t know tho tell me what you think.
Tomb Raider 2 still happening?
The sequel had a March 19 2021 release date before being delayed indefinitely in November 2020 then completely disappearing from MGM’s release calendar and till today has no release date. Do you want a Tomb Raider (2018) sequel?
Marvel’s Secret Invasion News
Marvel’s Secret Invasion series has begun filming according to Samuel L. Jackson. In an Instagram post, the actor posted one of his iconic shirt selfies and this time he had on a dusting Nick Fury shirt and captioned the post “Time to get back in the groove. Happy to be back on the attack! #secrectinvasion #fuckthatsnap #backwithafury”
The mini-series will be adapting the comics of the same name that see Nick Fury making another team of superheros that will help him take down the Skrulls that have taken over earth. I haven’t read the comics but I am definietly excited to see Sam Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn (Talos) back on my screen, the first episode is expected to come out sometime in 2022
Marvel’s Eternals News
Marvel’s The Eternals comes out on the 5th of November and the trailers and some news about the movie have started to come out most interestingly is the mid and post-credit scenes which are said to both be equally important, Director Chloe Zhao said in an interview with Fandago “They are equally as important in weight and both have big surprises for you”.
The movie is also said (and proven by trailers) to be set in 2 different times, the past and present times. This is obviously because the entire movie will explore how the Eternals got to Earth and also see them after the events of Infinity War and Endgame so we might see a time jump in this.
The Walking Dead Spin-Off
Yes Ladies, Gentleman and Zombies there’s another Walking Dead Spin-Off in the works and this spin-off will be an Anthology series that will come out summer 2022. The series will have 1-hour-long standalone episodes and will feature some old beloved characters and some new faces, it will be called “Tales Of The Walking Dead”
This will be the 4th spin-off series of the Walking Dead Series and that’s actually wow, many of the series fans are hyped for it and I have never watched a single episode of The Walking Dead prefer to shut up. Are you excited for it?
