Another Netflix series bites the dust this week. It’s been reported by IGN that the Netflix series Luke Cage season 3 won’t be happening. Just like Iron Fist got canceled after season 2, Luke Cage is also getting axed. As much as Luke Cage got popularity from fans, it’s mentioned by the team that it “didn’t find its footing in these 13 episodes”. However, IGN reported that it is possible we might be getting a season 2 of the Defenders and if that happens, we could still see Iron Fist and Luke Cage still in Netflix. As of the moment, Netflix still have Daredevil, Jessica Jones and The Punisher. Daredevil recently got a third season and there are plans for another season for Jessica Jones and The Punisher.
Revealed in a tweet by Toonami news, Toonami fans will be getting a new anime to join the Saturday night TV program block. The anime Mob Pyscho 100 will be joining Toonami on October 27th. If you don’t know about this anime, this series was created by the same webcomic artist who did One-Punch Man. The artist is named ONE.
MAL describes this anime:
Eighth-grader Shigeo “Mob” Kageyama has tapped into his inner wellspring of psychic prowess at a young age. But the power quickly proves to be a liability when he realizes the potential danger in his skills. Choosing to suppress his power, Mob’s only present use for his ability is to impress his longtime crush, Tsubomi, who soon grows bored of the same tricks.
In order to effectuate control on his skills, Mob enlists himself under the wing of Arataka Reigen, a con artist claiming to be a psychic, who exploits Mob’s powers for pocket change. Now, exorcising evil spirits on command has become a part of Mob’s daily, monotonous life. However, the psychic energy he exerts is barely the tip of the iceberg; if his vast potential and unrestrained emotions run berserk, a cataclysmic event that would render him completely unrecognizable will be triggered. The progression toward Mob’s explosion is rising and attempting to stop it is futile.
What started off as an incredible partnership in 2016, now the biggest anime companies Funimation and Crunchyroll are splitting up and going their separate ways. If you didn’t know, Funimation and Crunchyroll teamed up in 2016 to help spread out more anime for fans. Thanks to this, fans were able to stream Funimation licensed anime like Cowboy Bebop on Crunchyroll and Funimation was able to sell anime like Gintama season 3 and Twin Exorcists in English Dub. With this sudden news, Funimation anime that are dubbed and subbed are heading to FunimationNow and it won’t be appearing in Crunchyroll. However, as far I know, it looks like anime planned home videos are still in progress and it won’t be heavily affected. To make matters worse, VRV will be removing the Funimation channel and will be replacing it with HIDIVE. HIDIVE is a streaming site where fans can watch anime titles licensed by Sentai Filmworks such as Clannad, My Love Story and Kill Me Baby. The pact will end this November 9th.

Remember DC’s movie Suicide Squad that premiered in 2016? I got some interesting news to share in regards to this movie. It has been announced yesterday that filmmaker James Gunn has joined with Warner Bros and DC comics and will be involved with the upcoming, planned movie Suicide Squad 2. This turn of events also persuaded actor Dave Bautista to wanting to join the movie and wants to work with James Gunn.
If you don’t why this is a big deal, I will tell you real brief about James Gunn and Disney. James Gunn was in charge and help create the iconic Marvel Cinematic Films Guardians of the Galaxy and the sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The plans for a third movie is currently on hold since Disney fired and dismissed James Gunn for making controversial jokes in his Twitter about rape and pedophilia. With this dilemma, the third movie is on break and Disney is trying to decide to either go with the script James Gunn made, find a new director and rewrite the story or scrap it. This startling news has even led Drax actor Dave Bautista to stand up against Disney and is willing to leave the team.
