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)!

On Tuesday, Paramount Pictures debuted the famous cartoon’s design changes with a new official trailer for the Sega video game-inspired film, after initial reactions to the original design released in April caused an internet frenzy. Fans blasted the old trailer for portraying Sonic as “human-like” and were particularly upset about Sonic’s realistic looking teeth and shapely legs, Vulture reported.

Now, the electric blue hedgehog has been reimagined to look more like the traditional cartoon character — boasting larger, more animated eyes, white gloves instead of white hands, thin legs and all-around less human-like features.

Director Jeff Fowler confirmed in April that the movie would be delayed by three months after receiving backlash about Sonic’s appearance.

Check out a few fan reactions:

We have to say we are here for this makeover and the studio listening to the fans. Sonic The Hedgehog is one of the greatest and most beloved characters in the world we always want him done right! We will keep you posted as more news about the movie comes forward.

Although his Iron Man tenure propelled him to the top of Hollywood’s A-list, Robert Downey Jr. has always been humble about his recent success. Perhaps this is reason he declined the chance to pursue a Best Actor Oscar for his role in Avengers: Endgame. Regardless, it looks like Disney and Marvel have chosen to go against Downey’s wishes. Collider brings word that the studios are submitting his name for consideration at next year’s Oscars ceremony after all.

Rather than Best Actor in a Leading Role, Disney is pushing to have Downey nominated for Best Supporting Actor. What’s surprising is that Downey isn’t the only actor being submitted for consideration in this category. The studio is also launching campaigns for Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Josh Brolin, Paul Rudd, and Don Cheadle.

Honestly, we could have seen him nominated for the Best Actor category as well. There was a lot emotion put into his final bout as the Golden Avenger, especially when he sacrificed himself in that final scene to defeat Thanos, uttering “I am Iron Man.” It is only a matter of time before some superhero film achieves Oscar gold in one of the big categories. Black Panther  was nominated for  a number of awards at the last Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse took him an Oscar for best animated film. The clock’s ticking…

Even after the passing of Wes Craven, Ghostface continues to live on.

Bloody Disgusting can exclusively report that Gary Barber’s Spyglass Media Group is currently developing the next Scream, based on the franchise created by Craven and writer Kevin Williamson.

While Craven had directed all four Scream films before his passing, various filmmakers would get behind the camera for a television series that ran for two seasons on MTV and a third on VH1.

All four films remained canon while the series would create its own mythology. It’s unclear if the next film will continue to be canonized within Craven’s universe or be a remake, but we are hearing that, as of this writing, Williamson is not writing the screenplay.

Neve Campbell as “Sidney Prescott”

There is no word if the star of the films, Neve Campbell, will reprise her role as “Sidney Prescott.” We are definitely hoping Neve, and of course, Courteney Cox and David Arquette, as “Gail” and “Dooley,” respectively. We will keep you posted as more news on the film develops!
