Zack Snyder has appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, in quite a funny skit where he takes a huge jab at Warner Bros. over their total cluterfu*k handling of Zack Snyder's Justice League (and before that, when they screwed him once he was finished directing Jusice League). Check it out:
The Late Show: The Snyder Cut has everything you want... epic cinematography, huge use of green screen and CG teams, a ton of slow-mo, and so much more... everything you'd expect from The Late Show done the Snyder Way. But the best bit has to come when Colbert says "suck it, Warner Bros." to which Snyder backs that up with "yeah, suck it, Warner Bros."
Snyder is doing the press rounds for his new Netflix exclusive Army of the Dead, which dropped on Netflix a few days ago -- a fantastic follow-up to the 4-hour epic Zack Snyder's Justice League on HBO Max. I haven't watched Army of the Dead just yet as I've been moving around my office and home theater, but I can't wait. For now, I'll keep myself content with the fact Snyder got away with saying "suck it, Warner Bros." on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
Henry Cavill himself has confirmed that he's in talks to star in the reboot of the Highlander series with John Wick director Chad Stahelski.
Stahelski has been developing the Highlander reboot since 2016, and has been making John Wick movies in between. Stahleski said to The Hollywood Reporter in a previous interview: "I've been a huge fan of the original property since I saw it in high school. Such great themes of immortality, love and identity are all wrapped up in such colorful mythology. I can't think of a better property that gives the opportunity to create interesting characters, mythic themes and action set pieces".
In the original Highlander from 1986, the immortal beings who hunted each other down for an epic decapitation were Christopher Lambert, Sean Connery and Clancy Brown. We should expect Cavill to play in the role of Lambert, who played Scottish swordsman Connor MacLeod.
The time has come to get super excited for a brand new season of Rick and Morty, and to kick things off, we have a brand new trailer from Adult Swim.

From looking at the trailer, you can see that the scale of the show's animation is being pushed to new heights in this new season, as we can see massive robot battles, space fights, and Jerry getting a job interview?
Another cool factor to note is that the song being played behind the trailer is Sabotage by Beastie Boys.

Fox made a surprise announcement on Monday, telling advertisers that it will be creating a new animated TV series that is fundamentally tie-in NFT's and the Blockchain.
According to what Fox told advertisers, the new TV show is called Krapopolis and is an animated comedy show that is set in mythical ancient Greece that follows greek gods, mythical creatures, and human learning to coexist. The backbone storyline of Krapopolis sounds very similar to Solar Opposites, a Hulu animated TV series by Rick & Morty co-creator Justin Roiland that follows a family of aliens attempting to fit into human society.
So, how is the Blockchain and NFT's involved? Essentially, the NFT's for the show would act as digital collectibles for fans, as fans would be able to purchase and sell digital goods on a dedicated marketplace for the show. According to Fox, "The company will launch a dedicated marketplace for KRAPOPOLIS that will curate and sell digital goods, ranging from NFTs of one-of-a-kind character and background art and GIFs, as well as tokens that provide exclusive social experiences to engage and reward super fans."
Netflix has just thrown three of its TV shows onto the chopping block. Each of the shows have been canceled with no further seasons to be renewed.
Cinemablend has reported that two newcomer TV shows and one fan-favorite of the platform won't be getting renewed for new seasons. The shows that have sadly been canceled by the network are; The Irregulars, The Last Kingdom, and The Duchess. Netflix has renewed The Last Kingdom a few times, and now the platform has said that season 5 will be the last season of the show.
As for The Irregulars, when the show was released, it made it #1 on Netflix for an entire day and placed in the Top 18 for 18 days. However, Netflix has found that the show isn't performing as it would have liked versus similar shows such as Bridgerton. Netflix has made the decision not to fund production costs for the second season of the show. The Duchess is in a similar boat to The Irregulars, as the streaming platform has now canceled season 2 of the show.
The first glimpse of the prequel TV show to the award-winning Game of Thrones has been released by HBO. Introducing House of the Dragon.

Daenerys Targaryen's ancestors Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Prince Daemon Targaryen, will be the show's centerpieces, Emma D'Arcy will play Rhaenyra, and Matt Smith will play Daemon (as seen above).
HBO has released a set of images showcasing some of the characters in the show. Actor Steve Toussaint will portray the Lord Corlys Velaryon, or "The Sea Snake". British actress Olivia Cooke will play Alice Hightower, and Rhys Ifans will play her father, Otto Hightower. House of the Dragon is scheduled to release at an undeclared date in 2022.

The Dogefather himself, or what the world knows as billionaire troll businessman Elon Musk, will be hosting Saturday Night Live tonight at 8:30 PT / 11:30PM ET -- but where can you watch it from anywhere in the world? Here's how.
I left the first paragraph but I had originally written a huge post about how to watch Saturday Night Live with Elon Musk hosting it with VPN recommendations and how to watch it in Australia, Canada, and the UK through various TV stations and online streaming services.
But then Elon Musk tweets out a link to a YouTube video, where NBC for the first time ever is making its stream of Saturday Night Live available to international users with an easy YouTube link. Yeah, it's that easy -- the stream goes live in 5 hours from now (at the time of writing) directly on YouTube to everyone around the world.
You might want to mark your calendars for May 8, 2021 -- as Tesla's own "Technoking of Tesla" will be hosting Saturday Night Live, alongside Miley Cyrus as the musical guest.
NBC announced the news on their Twitter account, with 3 x rocket emojis and some sticky notes that included the date (May 8), Elon Musk and Miley Cryus sticky notes. As for the announcement itself, it was made live around 24 hours after SpaceX launched its Crew Dragon capsule that took 4 astronauts to the International Space Station.
Elon Musk of course tweets about the fact that he's going to be hosting Saturday Night Live, tweeting that he can't wait to find out "how live" Saturday Night Live "really is". Oh Elon, me either man... me either. I'm sure he's going to drop some doozies, if the SpaceX and Tesla founder is wanting to test the limits of how "live" SNL really is... I'm sure he's going to.
