Warner Bros. Studios continues to expand their repertoire of DC Comics superheroes with more and more films. We already know sequels to Aquaman, Shazam, the Justice League, and Wonder Woman are in play; and The Flash, Batman, Batgirl, and Cyborg are all still set to have their own standalone films, and now we can add Teen Titans’ Starfire to the fray!

Dick Grayson and Starfire

Starfire, as you may or may not already know, is an alien princess from the world of Tamaran a warrior society ruled by a race of beings evolved from catlike creatures who can also manipulate solar energy, fly, have superhuman strength, can fire bolts of energy (“Starbolts”) from their hands and eyes, and absorb language through touch. Starfire, also known as Koriand’r (Kori, for short) was betrayed by her older, villainous sister, Blackfire, and sold into slavery where she learned to fight using alien martial arts. She met the Teen Titans when she escaped her captors and crash landed on Earth, kissing Robin (Dick Grayson), leader of the team to learn English.

Anna Diop as “Starfire”

Over the years Starfire has proven to be a mainstay of the Teen Titans, and later the Titans, when most of the members grew to adulthood. She now mentors younger heroes, and has an and off again relationship with Nightwing (formerly the aforementioned first Robin, Dick Grayson). She battles everything from xenophobia to intergalactic demonic warlords. Starfire’s addition to the roster of DCEU is a smart one. The character is considered a comic book sex symbol, and currently she is portrayed by actress, Anna Diop, on the live action, Titans series on DC’s streaming service, DC Online.

Starfire’s film will be an origin story, thus it may touch on some of the information we have aforementioned, but when it comes to movies characters are often open to interpretation. We hope not too much though. The question is who will be tapped to portray her in the film and will her costume be as risque as it is in the comics? We will keep you posted as more news becomes available!

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!
