Friday Funny 382: Forget Evil Superman, be afraid of Evil Flash!

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome everyone for an episode of Friday Funny. I hope everyone is staying cool in the heat and away from trouble. Here’s another Friday for memes and news. In big and not really new news, Ezra Miller is charged for felony. At this point, I feel like he can be Reverse Flash instead of Barry Allen Flash. In other news, it’s been revealed that Sony will be absorbing another big company on their plate. Not only they bought Funimation and merged with Crunchyroll, they recently got the rights to the shopping site Right Stuf. Whether you like it or not, Sony will be having full control on the anime content and where your money is going. Besides anime, Disney and Marvel will be dishing out new content this month of August. We have the short series called I Am Groot. Focusing on the wooden baby hero, Groot, Disney released a collection of short episodes featuring Groot and his adventures. On August 17, get ready for She-Hulk. Watch as Bruce’s cousin take on the justice system and show off her Hulk-ish strength. If that doesn’t get your attention, maybe you will watch it for Daredevil. If you have Disney Plus, you can watch the movie Lightyear. Going off topic and into my life, I saw the movie DC League of Super-Pets with my girlfriend. It was funny and cute movie and I recommend it if you love your dog very much. One more thing, it’s been announced that the next Sonic movie has a release date. Sonic the Hedgehog 3 is coming to theaters in December 2024!

Ko-fi

Let’s do this!

As a way to celebrate the release date announcement for the Sonic the Hedgehog 3 movie, here is some theme songs from the movies.

Gotta go fast!

I can’t wait to see the Justice League fight against the Injustice League.

Bye! God bless you all!

Friday Funny 381: Poor Unfortunate Souls

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back for another episode of Friday Funny! We made it through July and here we are in in the month of August. It’s me Matt and I am to give you both memes and news. A lot has happened in July. What was your favorite moment in July? Now that we’re in August, get ready for some new events coming up. In anime news, get ready for the upcoming movie Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. If you live in the United States, you can watch this movie starting at August 19th. In other anime/manga news, looks like Square Enix got into trouble in the manga business. Recently, Square Enix released their digital manga on an app service called Manga Up! in which subscribers can pay to read their favorite chapters such as Soul Eater and My Dress-Up Darling. However, after launch, fans got frustrated when Square Enix started to add uncensored black bars on the chapters. Even in scenes where the women are fully clothed, black bar censors are still apparent. Hopefully, they get this patched up otherwise, ditch the service. Last but not least, I bring some sad news. Recently, we lost an actress named Pat Carroll this week. Pat Carrol is iconic for her voice acting as Ursula in the Little Mermaid movie as well as the sequel villain Morgana. Even though we’re getting DC’s Black Adam and Shazam 2 movies, the anticipated Batgirl movie has unfortunately been shelved. Don’t expect to see Batgirl on the big screen or in HBO Max anytime soon. In my own news, I finally got the chance to read all the volumes of the classic Dragon Ball manga. It was both a silly and action pack series. From the first appearance with Goku and Bulma to the Red Ribbon Army and to the epic finale with Goku vs Piccolo, the classic Dragon Ball series is a ton of fun. I also got to see the movie Your Name. with my girlfriend. It was a great and cute movie.

Ko-fi

Let’s start this Friday!

Rest in peace, Pat Carroll

See you next time!

 

Friday Funny 380: Superhero 22

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome everyone for an awesome and hot day today. It’s me, Matthew from Matt-in-the-Hat and I am going to be sharing memes today. Before we begin, let’s go over some San Diego Comic Con news. Marvel been dishing out some major news so you better write these down either on your calendar or renew your Disney Plus account. As of now from Phase 4 to 6, the MCU movies and TV shows from Black Widow to movies in 2025 is known as the Multiverse Saga. If you been watching the movies after Endgame and watch the TV shows, you’ll understand. For this year, get ready for the upcoming TV show, She-Hulk which will air in August 17 this year (same day as my girlfriend). The last MCU movie for this year is going to be Black Panther: Wakanda Forever which will be in theaters in November of this year. Marvel did reveal details on TV shows such as Spider-Man: Freshman Year. Taking place in Spider-Man’s younger years in high school, Peter learns how to be a hero by teaming up with billionaire scientist Norman Osborn. The series will begin in 2024. X-Men ’97 also been announced too and we get to see a new Magneto who will be in charge of leading the X-Men. Marvel Zombies has been revealed too and according to sources, this new show is going to be really dark and gruesome for the young audience. Speaking of X-Men, Marvel announced that you can now watch all episodes of X-Men The Animated Series in chronological order. If you want to watch the series in order by story, you can do it now. I wish Disney did this with Star Wars The Clone Wars.

DC also revealed some movie trailers as well. Besides the upcoming animated movie DC League of Superpets, get ready for some Black Adam and Shazam. Black Adam will be in theaters on October 21, 2022 and the new Shazam sequel, “Shazam!: Fury of the Gods”, is coming to theaters on December 21 this year. DC is dishing out two movies in the last half of 2022 and Marvel is releasing one.

Ko-fi

Let’s go heroes (and anti-heroes)!

Are you ready for fall and winter comic book movies?

Before I say goodbye, check out John Wick 4 which is coming on March 24, 2023!

Enjoy the weekend!

 

Friday Funny 379: You’re the chosen one

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome everyone for a hot and brand day. It’s Friday and I hope everyone is staying cool and drinking water. It’s me Matthew and I am here to give you the memes and any news I might have missed or just for recap purposes. Surprisingly enough, I didn’t get the chance to write a lot of news so today, I am going to keep it short today. I can tell you that I been busy these past days with my work and me dealing with power outages in my area. I did get to see Paws of Fury this past weekend. It was funny cheesy movie. Something I expect to see on TV on Nick. In my manga readings, I am currently reading the classic Dragon Ball manga. In my anime time, I been watching Chivalry of a Failed Knight. Speaking of anime news, I did hear that Bleach creator Tite Kubo was going to be involved with the upcoming final arc of the Bleach anime. Fans are speculating that this means we’re going to be getting some extended scenes that wasn’t part of the original manga. In video game news, Platnium Games announced that if anyone wants to play Bayonetta 3 without the hardcore rated M content, there’s going to be an Angel mode where you can play as Bayonetta without having to see a sensitive content. This will be good if you are streaming or don’t want anyone walking in a particular scene.

Ko-fi

Let’s do this! It’s my day off today!

Cheers to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge for selling 1 million copies in the first week of launch.

Have fun this weekend!

Friday Funny 378: Blazing Samurai

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome everyone for another scorching Friday. I hope everyone is doing okay under the heat. I am going to keep this super short on the news before we jump into the memes. Don’t worry there’s no samurais today, but if you want to watch an animated movie this weekend that’s not Minions or Lightyear, go check out Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank. Originally going to be called Blazing Samurai (title is based on Mel Brook’s Blazing Saddles movie). This past weekend, I saw the movie Thor: Love and Thunder. Honestly, I thought it was a good movie and I think I like it more than Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. I’m on the fence and I think it could be tied. Sad news today, I do want to bring up the harsh news that Yu-Gi-Oh! creator Kazuki Takahashi passed away recently due to a snorkeling accident. He is gone, but his legacy will live on in his works from the classic Yu-Gi-Oh. If you are in a spending mood and you got paid, go check out on Sentai and Rightstuf because they got some major hot sales up to 50% off on select items in the inventory.

Ko-fi

Let’s light it up!

Rest in Peace, Kazuki Takahashi.

Enjoy the weekend!

Friday Funny 377: Thunderstruck!

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome everyone for another shocking episode of Friday Funny. I got some exciting recap news for you before we start with the memes. Not to be confused with the AC/DC song, this weekend is the movie release of Thor’s fourth epic movie, Thor: Love and Thunder. This movie is the fourth movie featuring Thor and it’s part of Phase 4 of the MCU. Taking place after the events of Endgame, Thor is trying to seek inner peace, however, there’s a dangerous threat across the galaxy. A villain named Gorr the God Butcher is killing all gods and life. It’s up to Thor to enlist the help of his ex-girlfriend Jane Foster to help combat against the god killing foe. Along the journey, we have Korg, the Guardians of the Galaxy and Valkyrie. We recently had Anime Expo and we got some major news. Bleach is coming back and will be adapting the final arc from the manga. The new Bleach anime is titled Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War and it will be airing this October. Trigun is coming back too with a brand new reboot series made from Studio Orange. The anime Trigun Stampede will be released in 2023. In video game news, we’re getting some new announced games. The Switch will be getting Persona 3, 4, and 5 and we’re getting NieR Automata for the Switch. God of War: Ragnarok is coming this November, just in time for the holidays. The 2012 game Lollipop Chainsaw is coming back and will be remade for this modern day generation. If you’re a fan of this game or you’re like me who missed out, you can expect this game in 2023!

Let’s go mortals!

Cheers to the four films of Thor:

Are you ready for some thunder this weekend?

Friday Funny 376: July 4, 1776

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome everyone for a brand new day! We are officially in July and you know what this means. For us Americans, it is the Independence Day weekend. July 4 is the special holiday where the citizens of the United States celebrate our independence from Great Britain. The thirteen North American colonies fought hard against the British and on this day, the important document the Declaration of Independence was signed. We celebrate our freedom and we wear our patriot colors (red, white and blue). Besides this holiday, get ready for some movies of this month. Today is the release of Minion: The Rise of Gru, the sequel to the 2015 first Minions movie. Originally, this movie was meant to be in theaters on July 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this movie got delayed and pushed back. If you are not in the mood to take your kid to see Lightyear, take them to see Minions. Next Friday is the fourth Thor movie, Thor: Love and Thunder. Unfortunately, if you have been dying to see two Thor’s, the Guardians of the Galaxy and Christian Bale as Gorr, you will need to wait next week. Speaking of Thor, if you still play the Avengers video game, Jane Foster Thor is the new playable hero. She is a free DLC and she is going to be joining the rest of the Avengers like Iron Man, Black Panther and the original Thor. This weekend is also Anime Expo. If want your 4th of July weekend to be epic and you love anime, go out and be with your anime fan peers and pay a visit to your favorite voice actors and get anime updates.

Ko-fi

America, the land of the free!

Enjoy some Spider-Man this weekend!

Here is what if Deadpool was in the Doctor Strange 2 movie:

Happy Independence Day!

Friday Funny 375: Flash is on the move

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome everyone for one final Friday of June! I hope everyone is cooling off this week because we are officially in summer! It’s time to put on sunblock and drink some water because it’s going to be scorching. Let us recap everything in the month of June. We had movies like Lightyear, which unfortunately got overshadowed by Jurassic World. We got Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ms. Marvel on Disney Plus. We also had Father’s Day this past weekend. Once we get to July, it’s time to unleash the power of the sun. We got the upcoming movies, Thor: Love and Thunder and Minions 2: The Rise of Gru. While Disney is busy doing other things with superheroes, Sony announced that the upcoming Kraven the Hunter movie will have a different approach to the character. Unlike the comics, Kraven is a protector of animals and nature and he is vegan. In DC news, Ezra Miller is out running amok in Hawaii for harassment and kidnapping. Warner Bros announced that once The Flash movie is released, they no longer want to work with Ezra Miller. The upcoming Joker 2 movie is in the works and apparently it’s going to be a musical film featuring Lady Gaga in it. So many comic movies going on and I can’t even catch up. Square Enix announced that a remastered version of Crisis Core is in the works and will be released in all platforms this year. Next Winter, we’ll be getting Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, a game in which takes place after the events of Final Fantasy VII Remake.

Ko-fi

Let’s hurry up and end this June Gloom !

With Sony working on Madame Web, Kraven and El Muerto, let’s hope we get a Rhino movie.

It’s time to cool off!

Happy Birthday Sonic! (6/23/1991)

Friday Funny 374: To infinity and beyond!

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome everyone for another episode of Friday Funny. It’s me, Matt-in-the-Hat, and I am here to give you memes and news. First off, let me say some sad news before we start this post. These past couple of days been rough on the anime community. We lost two voice actors this past week due to colon and lung cancer. We lost Billy Kametz who voices characters such as Josuke and Naofumi and we lost Jim White who voices Igneel. This is one of the most heart wrenching news to hear in the anime community, but we got to pray and stay strong in tough times. Sad news aside, here is some happy news. Today is the movie release of Disney-Pixar’s Lightyear movie. This movie will explore the lore and origin of Buzz Lightyear and his job at  Star Command. Instead of Tim Allen voicing him, we have Captain America actor Chris Evans voicing this protagonist. I wonder if we will be getting a Woody’s Round-Up movie in the future. This is going to be the first time since this Covid pandemic that Pixar is finally going to put their movies in theaters. Speaking of movies, get ready for the upcoming Dragon Ball movie, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. Crunchyroll and Toei Animation just released the English Dub trailer and dates have been posted on which you can watch in theaters. Another cool thing about this news is that we’re getting a new voice cast for the movie characters. If you look carefully, we’re getting Demon Slayer characters such as Tanjiro and Zenitsu and even Charles Martinet in this movie. Charles Martinet is well-known for voicing Mario in the Super Mario games as well as Luigi, Wario and Waluigi.

Ko-fi

Let’s go cadets!

 

To end this post, I want to post this iconic speech from Persona 5 Royal. The loss of voice actor Billy Kametz still hurts and it’s going to be rough without him. He gave all his time to voice our favorite characters. This speech in particular is from Persona 5 Royal and he voices the character Takuto Maruki. I posted a YouTube and Twitter video just in case one of them get copyright strikes.

Thank you Billy Kametz. Stay shining up in heaven.

God bless everyone.

Friday Funny 373: Which one do you like, Jurassic Park or Jurassic World?

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome everyone and I thank you for coming back to another episode of Friday Funny. I hope everyone is cooling off this hot month. Before I begin, I just want to say congratulations to the graduates who made it pass high school and college. You earned your rest and rewards, grasp the future! Now with this said, let’s get on with some news. This weekend we have the third and long awaited movie Jurassic World: Dominion. What makes this movie interesting is that the previous cast from the classic Jurassic Park are here in this modern adventure of Jurassic World. Also released this week is the Marvel Disney Plus series Ms. Marvel. So if you don’t mind watching a young superhero take action and watch a veteran Jedi show at the same time, give these shows a watch. In big surprises in the anime/manga community, the manga of Berserk is coming back. While the original creator Kentaro Miura has passed away last year, his closest friend and his staff team are going to help continue the story. Step aside Hunter x Hunter fans, another long hiatus series is coming back and its hungry. In a shocking and surprising turn of events, Starting at the end of the month, One Piece will be on a month break in the manga. With so many projects going on such as the upcoming Film Red and the Netflix series, Oda needs time to rest. Besides resting Oda is going to prepare things for the anticipated final arc of One Piece. The Straw Hats will meet at world’s end.

Ko-fi

Let’s party!

Which way people? Marvel, DC or Dinosaurs?

This weekend is going to get hot! See you next Friday!
