In “Mortal Kombat,” MMA fighter Cole Young, accustomed to taking a beating for money, is unaware of his heritage—or why Outworld’s Emperor Shang Tsung has sent his best warrior, Sub-Zero, an otherworldly Cryomancer, to hunt Cole down. Fearing for his family’s safety, Cole goes in search of Sonya Blade at the direction of Jax, a Special Forces Major who bears the same strange dragon marking Cole was born with. Soon, he finds himself at the temple of Lord Raiden, an Elder God and the protector of Earthrealm, who grants sanctuary to those who bear the mark. Here, Cole trains with experienced warriors Liu Kang, Kung Lao and rogue mercenary Kano, as he prepares to stand with Earth’s greatest champions against the enemies of Outworld in a high stakes battle for the universe. But will Cole be pushed hard enough to unlock his arcana—the immense power from within his soul—in time to save not only his family, but to stop Outworld once and for all?

Zack Snyder Talks 'Justice League,' Joss Whedon's Version - Variety

Revealed on Valentine’s Day, Warner Bros released an updated trailer for the upcoming movie Justice League. Directed by Zach Snyder, Snyder gives fans his perspective on this 2017 movie in his image. After the events with Batman v Superman, Bruce Wayne must gather the power of superhumans in order to prevent a global threat.

In Zack Snyder’s Justice League, determined to ensure Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) aligns forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad, and Darkseid and their dreadful intentions.

In case you missed out on the weekend, I got some surprising news for you, Sonic the Hedgehog fans!

1. Roger Craig Smith

Best known for voicing iconic characters in games such as Chris Redfield from Resident Evil and Ezio from Assassin’s Creed 2 series, the well-known voice actor Roger Craig Smith announced on Twitter that after 10 years of voicing Sonic the Hedgehog, he is retiring from voicing Sonic. He started voicing Sonic the Hedgehog in 2010 and he even voiced the Wisp Announcer in the game Sonic Colors. After that, Roger continued to voice Sonic in the games, cameo appearances in Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph and even the series Sonic Boom. As of now, it’s unknown who will be the new voice for Sonic. Roger took over the voice of Sonic after Jason Griffith.

2. Netflix

Mentioned a while back, Netflix and Sega are teaming up and are planning to create a 3D Sonic the Hedgehog animated series. Recently, it’s been announced the Sonic Netflix project is officially called Sonic Prime. According to Twitter, Sonic Prime will be worked on by Sega, WildBrain Studios and Man of Action Entetainment.

According to IGN, there will be a total of 24 episodes and it’s a collaboration of Sega and WildBrain Studios, same company who homes brands such as Peanuts, Caillou and Inspector Gadget. Man of Action Entertainment is a collective company well-known for creating shows like Ben 10, Generator Rex and Big Hero 6.

IGN describes Sonic Prime:

The animated adventure will consist of 24 episodes, which will follow Sonic on a “high-octane adventure where the fate of a strange new multiverse rests in his gloved hands.” Whilst that might sound like a familiar premise, Netflix notes that the series is “more than a race to save the universe,” as the Blue Blur ultimately finds himself on “a journey of self-discovery and redemption.”

Sonic Prime will be on Netflix in 2022.

3 Things I Learned from Deadpool. The Art of Living and Dying | by Glen  Binger | Betterism | Medium

Remember when Disney bought the Marvel characters from Fox? This includes characters from X-Men, Deadpool, Blade and the Fantastic Four. This is both good and shocking news for Marvel fans. It’s good because that means Disney is able to bring more movie projects in the MCU world along with characters such as the Avengers. However it also means that since MCU is owned by Disney, it also means content will be made for an audience recommended for families. Fans worry thinking if characters such as Deadpool joined the MCU, the future movies will be tamed to a PG-13 rating.

However, the president of Marvel Studios made an announcement recently. While talking to news site Collider, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed that the upcoming Deadpool 3 film will remain to be rated R and it will fit within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

There has been a total of three Deadpool movies in which one and two are rated R and there is a PG-13 version retelling of Deadpool 2 titled Once Upon a Deadpool. Deadpool 3 will be filming in early in 2022.
