Marvel and DC Comics definitely hold a monopoly on the superhero film genre, but that does not mean a few of our favorite video game characters can’t join the fray. Apparently the popular video game company, Capcom, has announced one if its greatest heroes, Mega Man, is getting his own live action film!

Mega Man, as you may already know is a mostly blue robot created by philanthropic scientist, Dr. Wiley to help and benefit mankind peacefully. However, when Dr. Light’s former partner, Dr. Wiley, decides to use their robot creations in an attempt to take over the world, the robot that would become Mega Man is reformatted to become the heroic defender of humanity we know and love today.

There is no casting news on the film yet as it is in early development. We are very excited to see Mega Man to go the live action route. The special effects are going to be amazing; and getting to possibly see characters like Rush, Roll, Proto Man, Cutman, and Gutsman, is making us relive our childhoods. Mega Man’s success could even give way to a Capcom Cinematic Universe, meaning the return of franchises like Street Fighter to the big screen, and the debut of still others like Dark Stalkers! We will keep you posted as more Mega Man news as it becomes available!

Rosie Perez (@rosieperezbklyn) Cast as Renee Montoya in Suicide Squad Spin-Off Movie, “Birds Of Prey!”

The DC Cinematic Univers (DCU) has definitely had its setbacks with less than stellar reviews for many of its films including the Justice League, Batman vs. Superman, and even Suicide Squad. That is not stopping DC from moving forward with a Birds of Prey movie based off the DC Comics superhero team of mostly female operatives that have included the likes of Black Canary, Batgirl (Barbara Gordon), and Huntress. Now, it seems Rosie Perez has been cast in the film as Gotham City cop turned vigilante, Renee Montoya!

Those familiar with Batman comics know that Renee is not only a detective, but a lesbian and love interest for Kate  Kane/Batwoman . She later goes on to become the superhero/vigilante, The Question, as the original holder of the mantle, Vic Sage, dies of cancer. The Question wears a faceless mask and when Renee takes over the helm she gains a ray gun that vaporize just about anything. There is no word on if the film’s version of the character will take on heroism, but we are definitely hoping.

DC seems to be betting on its female heroes a lot more as Wonder Woman is their most, and only, successful film to date. Announcing a Birds of Prey movie after stating both Batgirl and Supergirl films may be in the works is highly progressive. Sometimes the best man for the job is a woman, it seems!

Birds of Prey core team line up; (l-r) Black Canary, Batgirl, Huntress

The cast of DC’s Birds Of Prey movie was already looking pretty good, with Margot Robbie reprising her role as Harley Quinn, Mary Elizabeth Winstead playing the Huntress, and Jurnee Smollett-Bell playing Black Canary, but now The Wrap is reporting that they’ll be joined by Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya. In the comics, Montoya spent a few years as a regular Gotham City cop before becoming a vigilante herself as the second incarnation of The Question (who was basically a detective with a cool faceless mask), but we don’t know at this point if Perez’s Montoya has any superheroic aspirations.

What we do know is that the film will sort of be a Harley Quinn-centric Suicide Squad spin-off—but not the Harley Quinn-centric Suicide Squad spin-off—with Robbie’s Harley teaming up with some other female DC characters to stop a big villain. Also thanks to The Wrap, we now know that the big villain is going to be Black Mask, a Gotham-based mobster who wears a black skull mask in the comics. Birds Of Prey will be directed by Cathy Yan, with the script coming from new Batgirl writer Christina Hodson.

Rosie will make an awesome Renee Montoya and we cannot wait to learn more about this film. Charlie’s Angels eat your hearts out!

DOPE! “Black Panther,” Director, Ryan Coogler, To Produce “Space Jam” Sequel!

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 directed 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!
