Shonen Jump Movie news: My Hero Academia, Black Clover and Jujutsu Kaisen!
These Shonen Jump titles are going to keep the fans on the edge of their seats with these news.
My Hero Academia
Season 5 of My Hero Academia has started and fans are happy to be reunited with the superhero action anime series. However, there is still some exciting news for the fans besides a new season. In case you forgot, it’s been announced before that My Hero Academia will be receiving a third movie. The movie title has been revealed and it’s called My Hero Academia the Movie: World Heroes’ Mission. Currently, the movie is set to be released on August 6th for Japan’s theaters and Funimation has yet to make any comments on the English release.
The anime of Black Clover has reached the finale, the manga is still going and there is big plans for Asta and his friends. Revealed from Weekly Shonen Jump, the magical series Black Clover will be getting a movie. There is no big details yet, but it is confirmed from a YouTube video showcasing the news and and key visual of Asta.
While the anime’s season is over, it’s too soon for fans to move on. It has been revealed online that a movie is in the works and will be focused on Volume 0 of Jujutsu Kaisen. The title of Volume 0 is called Blinding Darkness
This prequel story, titled Blinding Darkness, focuses on Yuta Okkutsu, a nervous high schooler whose childhood friend Rika has turned into a cursed spirit and is constantly haunting him—a bit of a rite of passage for all high schoolers, am I right?
Well, turns out Rika is no ordinary cursed spirit, and she gets the attention of none other than everyone’s favorite Jujutsu High teacher, Satoru Gojo. Gojo tries to enroll Yuta in order to teach him how to confront Rika.
There is no news of a release date yet. If you want to jump into the series, check out the manga of Volume 0 and the rest of the manga, plus watch the anime.
Sword Art Online the Movie Progressive trailer and release date
Even though Sword Art Online: Alicization is over, there is still more Sword Art Online for the fans. Announced before, there is plans of another Sword Art Online movie titled Sword Art Online the Movie – Progressive – Aria of a Starless Night. The movie will be based on the light novel Sword Art Online Progressive which is written by the same creator Reki Kawahara and the plot of Progressive is a retelling of the story of Aincrad where Kirito, Asuna and many others was trapped for two years. The movie will be released in theaters in Autumn 2021. Revealed in this new trailer, an original anime character will be joining the movie named Mito who will be voiced by Inori Minase (same voice actress who voiced Rem from Re:ZERO – Starting Life in Another World -). I will try to keep you guys updated on the movie news, but know that it’s going to be on the fall this year and let’s hope there won’t be any delays from Covid-19.

February 2021 Funko Pop Haul *Happy Birthday Special*
Hello Funko lovers, I am back again for another haul post. As a collector of vinyl Pop figures, I am a lover of these small bobble head like figurines. Today is my birthday and I am going to share with my updated collection from my purchases from February. According to my last update, I have 84 figures and I been collecting figures from February and March. However, I am only going to be talking about February.
85+86. Owlman and The Penguin Snowman (both Hot Topic Exclusives)
I got these two from online from using my Hot Cash at Hot Topic. Obviously I wanted to get this holiday version of Penguin because not only he was an exclusive, but we are already passed the holidays and I wanted to snag him before he sells out. The Christmas season usually stocks up these special comic book figures for Marvel and DC characters. It’s funny how they made a villain like the Penguin a snowman; he looks like a serious and dangerous frosty the snowman. Also in the DC Superhero section, I bought Owlman. Hot Topic listed this figure really cheap and every time I visit Hot Topic online, it is there for $7. I assume this figure is not really popular. I don’t know much about this character, but I do hear he’s an evil counterpart of Batman and he is from a different universe along with other evil characters in their Justice League.
87. Sorcerer Mickey 10″ (Walmart Exclusive)
As a way to celebrate the 80th anniversary to the musical movie Fantasia, Funko released Disney figures from the movie. Exclusively from Walmart, I went and spent about $30 on this big figure of Mickey Mouse. I love Mickey Mouse to death and seeing this figure online made me want to claim this Disney treasure. Just like my Mandolarion figure from November, this is another huge figure.
88. Sorcerer Mickey Art Series No. 15
89. The Joker (Imperial)
90. Batman (Imperial)
As you can tell, I like to shop at Hot Topic. I made some more purchases. They may not be Hot Topic exclusives, but I knew I had to get them before they disappear. I got a different version of the Sorcerer Mickey figure, but this figure is unlike the any other Mickey figure I have. Even though it’s still the same sorcerer, Mickey here is splattered in green, blue and purple paint. I don’t know much about the paint series, but it looks cool. On the back of the box, there is another but it’s purple as the base color with star lights. I was surprised to see DC do these types of figures of Batman and Joker. Based on the Imperial army, DC and Funko created these DC characters. We have Batman don some samurai armor and we have Joker looking like a general. It’s cool, but I don’t know for sure if there is many more our there since the box doesn’t tell. As far as I know there is a Harley and Robin figure out there.
91. Ratchet and Clank (GameStop Exclusive)
Taking a break from Hot Topic, I took my business to GameStop. During one of my dates, me and my girlfriend went to GameStop at an outside mall. I saw Ratchet and Clank on the Pop Funko shelves and I had to get them. As a gamer myself, I love the Ratchet and Clank series. It’s cool to see some Playstation figures as Pops. I saw they also had the brothers from God of War, Brok and Sindri, but my instincts told me to get the Lombax and his robot companion.
That’s the end of the February haul and I will be back for the March post. I have 91 figures!

Marvel Entertainment news: Black Widow, MODOK and Venom
Greetings comic book fans, I got some major news in the world of Marvel.
Recently announced, Marvel Studios announced that the upcoming Black Widow movie will be pushed back once again. Instead of being released in May, the movie will come out on July 9th, 2021 in theaters and on Disney Plus. In Disney Plus, subscribers will have to pay for the Premier Access to watch the movie. Aside from the TV shows like WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Black Widow will be the first MCU film of Phase 4. This also means that the upcoming movie Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will also be pushed back from July to September 3rd, 2021.
Get ready for a Marvel animated series that’s coming to Hulu instead of Disney Plus. Announced at the Winter TCA Virtual Press Conference, Hulu announced that they will stream an animated series focusing on Marvel’s deadliest villain M.O.D.O.K.. The show is called Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K. and it will be aired on Hulu with 10 episodes; the show will be an adult comedy.
In Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K., the megalomaniacal supervillain M.O.D.O.K. (Patton Oswalt) has long pursued his dream of one day conquering the world. But after years of setbacks and failures fighting the Earth’s mightiest heroes, M.O.D.O.K. has run his evil organization A.I.M. into the ground. Ousted as A.I.M.’s leader, while also dealing with his crumbling marriage and family life, the Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing is set to confront his greatest challenge yet!
Whether it’s good or bad news, it’s been announced by Sony that the second Venom movie, Venom: Let There Be Carnage will be pushed back again. The movie’s new release date will be on Sept 17th. Previously, the movie was set on June 25th.
Superhero game news: Gotham Knights delayed! Marvel’s Avengers Black Panther reveal and more!
Comic book fans, I bring you exciting news for you! Some is good while others is bad.
This could be considered good or bad news, but WB Games Montreal announced that their upcoming DC game Gotham Knights will be delayed until 2022. Reason is because the creators want to take the time to make this game fun for the players. It was originally going to be launched this year, but instead it will be in next year.
I hope you’re still playing Avengers because Square Enix has some upcoming content for you. Revealed this weekend, Black Panther is the next DLC hero to join this video game. As expected, get ready for a new story campaign, enemies and characters. Based on the trailer, Steve Blum (voiced Wolverine in past Marvel games and shows) will be voicing Klaw and Christopher Judge (well-known for voicing Kratos in God of War 2018) will voice Black Panther.
Square Enix also revealed a roadmap of content coming to Avengers in 2021. These include DLC characters like Hawkeye and Black Panther, new modes and upcoming online features. Unfortunately for PS4/5 fans, Spider-Man will be joining before Black Panther arrives in the game. The team is currently working on him, but don’t expect him coming this summer 2021.
