World Trigger manga returns from hiatus!

Shonen Jump readers, I bring good news! If you are a reader for the Weekly Shonen Jump and been a member from the beginning, you might have remembered the sci-fi series World Trigger. The manga disappeared in the magazine because of the author’s health condition. Revealed in a illustration on Twitter, manga author Daisuke Ashihara is coming out from hiatus and will go back to the series World Trigger. World Trigger will be in the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine on October 29th.

The manga took a week hiatus in September 2014 due to cervical spondylosis  and occasionally took one week breaks. However, his health grew worse and went to hiatus in November 2016.

If you are a subscriber to magazine, mark your calendars for October 29th online!

Netflix Iron Fist TV series ends on season 2

Marvel may be the biggest franchise in the media when in comes to movies, TV series and comic books, even the most powerful company has a weakness.

I found this news yesterday in a tweet from IGN stating that the Netflix exclusive Marvel series Iron Fist will be canceled.

According to the news, Netflix officially released the second season of Iron Fist and unfortunately, due to the ratings, Netflix will end the series. With this news however, they commented that the character Iron Fist could still be used in other Marvel Netflix series. However it is possible that Netflix could still use Iron Fist in potential team ups or series like Heroes for Hire where Iron Fist teams up with Power Man/Luke Cage or even Daughters of the Dragon with Misty Knight and Colleen Wing.

Did you like Iron Fist or disliked it? I haven’t seen this series yet, but I plan to watch it after I get done with season 1 of Daredevil.

 

Friday Funny 182: Home Sweet Nuketown

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome all for another funny day in the world of the internet. I hope everyone is doing great in this second week of October. Depending where you are at, I hope you are not freezing cold in this fall weather. I do want people to be careful as some places in the west side of North America are being hit by Hurricane Michael. There’s not much news to do recaps so today post is going to be short on news today. Kingdom Hearts fans can own all the past nine games in one disc in the upcoming compilation game Kingdom Hearts – The Story So Far -in which collects all the collection games like 1.5, 2.5 and 2.8. The game is set to be released on Oct 30th in NA. I am probably not going to get it since I already got 1.5 and 2.5 on the PS3 and I got 2.8 on PS4. I’m still surprised that the new collection is not going to be on Xbox One since Kingdom Hearts III is going to be the first game to be on Xbox One and it’s going to be hard for Xbox fans to follow the story and know the background history. I also saw the movie Venom this Tuesday. It was a fun movie to watch and it was different than watching a MCU movie. Now that I completed Marvel Spider-Man PS4 and seen Venom, my next target is to watch the next Marvel movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Also, if you already played the series, you already know what to expect from Activison and the return of Treyarch. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is out today and fans can expect some new things such as the return of the Zombies team like Dempsey, Nikolai, Richtofen and Takeo. The game also is introducing a battle royale game feature where players are pitted together in a big open area and fight to be the last man standing.

Moving right along, let’s get Friday started!

To bring hype for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, here are some iconic songs from Zombies from Black Ops 1.

Get your game on players! See you in the arena!

Movie News: James Gunn joins Warner Bros and help write Suicide Squad 2 movie

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.

Friday Funny 181: No more heroes, only Venom

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome my brothers and sisters for another fun filled day of Friday Funny. We are official in the first Friday of October and I hope everyone didn’t get spooked to hard yet. Can you believe that we are on the last three months of 2018? I can’t believe it either. Summer is officially over and fall has taken over the season. So far I haven’t had pumpkin spice latte and I only got regular coffee. Make sure everyone stay bundled up and try not to get sick. As you guys already know, the Marvel movie Venom is out on theaters today! Made by Sony, we take a break of the typical heroic movies of the MCU and we focus on a dark, anti-hero named Venom. Venom is a popular character in the Marvel comics and he is important in the world of Spider-Man. Created by the same guy who did Spawn Todd McFarlene, Venom is introduced to the comics in the 80s as first a villain to Spider-Man and then later an anti-hero. Venom has many hosts in later in the series like Wolverine, Punisher and even Peter Parker’s classmate Flash Thompson, but the original host is always Eddie Brock. If you are not interested in watching Venom, I got some news for you anime fans. If you have Netflix, Violet Evergarden is back and we are given a special anime episode! Joining Crunchyroll for the fall is the return of Sword Art Online season 3 also known as Sword Art Online Sword Art Online: Alicization. Kirito is back and is going back to the virtual world and meeting new characters and unlike the past seasons, this anime is going to be a long series which will probably take up 50 episodes. You can watch this anime on Crunchyroll, Hulu and now FunimationNow; thanks to the partnership with Crunchyroll, Funimation users can stream this anime in both Crunchyroll and Funimation. Another great anime return is JoJo part 5 titled JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures Part 5: Golden Wind. This fifth part of the story focuses on the protagonist Giorno and with the power of both Dio and Joestar blood, he hopes to use his powers to take over the Mafia in Italy.

Last and definitely not least, I am officially an uncle. My sister gave birth to a baby daughter named Serenity and my sister and her husband are ready for a new chapter in their lives. The baby was born last week on Thursday Sept 27.

Now without a further ado, let’s get edgy!

To hype you up, here are some Venom videos from his movie and first appearance in Spider-Man 3:
