It is hard to believe it has been over twenty-two years since Space Jam made its debut to audiences worldwide. As many of you recall the movie was nothing short of a mega-hit as it showcased Warner Bros.’ Loonie Tunes’ characters alongside Michael Jordan to take on a group cartoonish aliens bent on enslaving them. Many were surprised that a sequel to the film did not ensue, but there is good news! Not only is there a sequel coming soon, but LeBron James stars in it AND it will be produced by Black Panther’s director, Ryan Coogler!

Ryan Coogler, as you may already know, is currently the highest grossing Black director, and one of the best filmmakers alive. His films, Fruitvale Station, CreedThe Sculptor, and of course Marvel’s Black Panther, are . He will definitely keep and some extra flavor to the Space Jam sequel. Ryan usually works with Michael B. Jordan in each of his films, and the two have become quite the dynamic duo. We wonder if he will make an appearance in the sequel. Anything he is in is always great!

Even more interesting are the other possible NBA players Ryan could cast in the film. The previous film had appearances from Charles Barkley, Muggsy Bogues, Shawn Bradley, Patrick Ewing, and Larry Johnson. It would definitely be great to see Dwyane Wade, Derrick Rose, Steph Curry, and Iman Shumpert.

Space Jam is an epic, and beloved childhood film and we are so happy to revisit that world. What do you guys think? Are you excited about the sequel? Sound off in the comments section below!

he talented actor and husband of Black Panther star, Angela Bassett, did not tiptoe around some questions about the superhero film’s upcoming sequel at Sunday’s 2019 Screen Actors Guild Awards. 

Vance, 58, joined his wife on the carpet ahead of Black Panther’s big wins, and the couple spoke with ET’s Nischelle Turner about the importance of the film and the highly anticipated second installment. 

When asked if “everybody” would be coming back for the sequel, Bassett replied, “I would assume so.”

Vance quickly cut her off, noting, “Yes, just go ahead and say it, yes! Everyone will be there, including Michael B.”

Michael B. Jordan’s villainous character, Eric Killmonger, seemingly died in the first film, but Bassett, 60, notes, “[We didn’t technically see him] go into the ocean, no.” 

Jordan has previously confirmed to ET that director Ryan Coogler will be back for Black Panther 2, adding, “I know nothing else about it!” Could this also mean that even more presumed dead stars will be back after 2018’s epic final scene of Avengers: Infinity War? Possibly. How about including Vance in the MCU?

“Yeah, he could come into Wakanda!” Bassett declared of her husband. 

“I just like the way it changed society,” Vance said of the film. “It was all about Wakanda forever. And those kind of films, when they come around you’ve got to lift them up… For me, that movie changed society, so give it what it’s due.”

Bassett agreed, noting, “A movie of this style, it has a hard time. It’s accepted by the audiences, of course it’s a global sensation, all of that, but the award [shows] tend to push them to the side. But it’s such a well-crafted, well-made, beautiful story — big moments, big themes, and I think it’s so utterly worthy.”

Thanks for the spoiler Courtney! We are sure Marvel Studios is going to change some things around at this point thanks to this news. We also doubt he will make an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since he cannot keep his mouth shut. Then again, there’s always room for him in Wakanda, he’s no “colonizer.”

Warner Bros. Announces “Plastic Man” Movie in The Works!

Don’t hold your breath if you were waiting for the superhero movie genre to die down anytime soon. More and more superheroes are flooding the Big Screen and we could not be happier. The newest superhero to now get the movie works is none other than DC Comics’ Plastic Man! Patrick “Eel” O’Brian, aka Plastic Man was a criminal until he was shot and left for dead by the gang he ran with. Somehow a mysterious chemical made it into his wound granting him the ability to shape-shift and stretch into almost any shape he can imagine.

Plastic Man definitely is a popular hero, being a member of the Justice League and for awhile had his own cartoon series. The film will be written by Amanda Idoko, an up and coming writer in the film industry. She has worked as a staff writer on The Mayor,  a short-lived ABC series starring Brandon Michael Hall as a hip-hop artist who becomes the mayor of his city. There is no news on what Amanda’s take on the character will be but it is expected to be an action-comedic piece in line with the nature of the character and his rather silly overtones.

We have to say we are really glad Warner Bros./DC Comics is moving towards expanding the DC Cinematic Universe with new heroes. There is another Justice League movie set in the next few years and we may see an expanded line up if characters like Shazam, Batgirl, Supergirl, and Plastic Man join Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman. They will definitely need the help if they are going after Darkseid (think Marvel’s Thanos, but bigger, gray, more evil, and with eye beams that can disintegrate anything)!
