I never really thought that a television show could give a persona anxiety, but Game of Thrones proved me wrong. Last week’s premiere was a wonderful hour of reunion long-awaited reunions, humor, and of course what is perhaps the last bit of table setting fans will see on the show.
Disney’s Star Wars sequel trilogy has given me new appreciation for the prequels, I always loved Revenge of the Sith but was always good for a joke on Phantom Menace (this is still the coolest title in the saga) and Attack of the Clones.
What a powerful form of communication a meme is, they can be funny, political, serious and are most always artistic in one way or another. Many emotions can be expressed through a meme and the internet did just that when it got its first look at Will Smith as the Genie in Guy Ritchie’s upcoming Aladdin.
While Avengers: Endgame is currently taking center stage (and rightly so) as far as Marvel fans are concerned, we will be receiving another installment into the Marvel Cinematic Universe this year in Spider-Man: Far From Home. Not only will we be treated to what will hopefully be another great Spider-Man film, but news has come down that the film will release a few days earlier than expected.
The third Thor film brought with it a new attitude and a much different, and much more kickass version of Thor than fans had seen in the previous two films.

Variety is reporting that professional wrestler turned actor John Cena is in talks to join James Gunn’s sort of reboot of Suicide Squad. Warner Bros. has not commented on the situation so take this with a grain of salt until they do.
Cena has been taking on more and more roles over the years and honestly would probably be a nice fit into the franchise.
For what it’s worth DC Universe has done a very good job in what may be considered a niche platform with it’s content. Last fall they launched their streaming service and have been adding content consistently. Starting off with their first original live action series Titans, then the return of the Young Justice animated series with Young Justice: Outsiders and most recently their second live action series Doom Patrol.
