2021 is going to be a busy month for new movies. We have upcoming movies such as The Flash, John Wick 4, Matrix 4 and even Thor: Love and Thunder. However, it appears that the supposedly live-action Akira movie is not mentioned at all. According to Crunchyroll, Taika Waititi (well-known for directing Thor: Ragnarok) stated that he is going to put the Akira live-action movie on hold so it would not interfere with his other movie Thor: Love and Thunder which is another title coming in 2021. So far, the only news reported is that the Akira movie is going to happen but for now, it is not the main priority. It was going to be out on May 21st, 2021, but not anymore due to change of plans.

Venom 2 may be rated-R

If we can get a rated-R movie about Joker and Deadpool, what if we could do it with Venom. According to Cinema Blend, Venom producer Matt Tolmach made a comment that he is considering giving the sequel to 2018’s Venom the rated-R treatment. The reason being is because he saw the success to DC’s recent movie Joker which was given the rating R and it earned over a billion dollars. Here is what Tolmach said:

I mean, I think you always have to think about [it], now that that works. Having said that, our movie worked really well. Our franchise exists as it is, and I don’t think anybody is looking to just say, ‘Hey, they [did it]!’ We have a place in the world. So it isn’t like suddenly everybody’s considering what to do with the rating. … I think what Joker does is it tells you that you can succeed. For a very long time, that was the narrative. And Deadpool sort of wrestled that to the turf, and then Logan, but for a long time, that was considered totally forbidden. … So you know, I think it’s the greatest thing in the world that R-rated movies are being embraced by massive audiences. And it just means that there are more opportunities for that kind of storytelling.

With movies like Logan, Deadpool and even Joker, producer Matt Tomach and director Andy Serkis are considering making Venom 2 for a much more older audience. If you didn’t know, the first Venom was released in October 2018 with a PG-13 rating. The movie met with mixed reviews from critics and even hardcore fans. What do you think about a rated-R Venom movie?

Unboxing: Aquaman Walmart exclusive Funko DVD set

Who would have thought that Aquaman would have an awesome movie good as Wonder Woman? Aquaman was a fun DC movie in 2018 in which tells the story about a man named Arthur Curry who is half-man, half-Atlantean who must step up in order to prevent an upcoming war between Atlantis and the people living in the surface land. Arthur will become not just a hero, but a king. As a Pop collector, I was eager to get this movie set; not only I got three copies of the movie (DVD, Blu-Ray and digital), but I also got the keychain Pop Funko figure. Just like my Alita post, this one is small enough to accessorize. Unfortunately, I wish they would have taken better care of the box set. It has some dents and bends, but at least the figures and discs were fine. This keychain counts as my 36th figure of my set.
