Another Look at Luca 

The official trailer for Disney & Pixar’s latest creation Luca splashed on the net this week. Luca is a coming of age story set in the Mediterranean town of Portorosso.

Season 3 of Titans Has Called in The Doctor 

Season 3 of DC’s Titans was already shaping up to be an epic season. We previously reported on casting news regarding the Red Hood, Barbra Gordon, and Tim Drake. This leads many to believe that season 3 will focus on The Killing Joke. If that wasn’t enough to get DC fans hype, the show has cast their Scarecrow.

Vincent Kartheiser will play Dr. Jonathan Crane aka Scarecrow. Does this mean we will spend most of next season in Gotham?  Either way, the Titans have a lot to worry about in season 3.

Disney & Aliens? 

Did you know that Disney owns the rights to the Alien franchise? Well, they do. Disney is working on an Alien TV series that will be for FX/Hulu. The Alien series will take place primarily on Earth… which to be honest is confusing as the films have mainly taken place in space. Noah Hawley is developing the series and teases that the show will be a “scary thrill ride.” Last time the Alien was on Earth we got this gem:

Invincible Gets Extended Life… For 2 More Seasons

And finally the animated series Invincible, now streaming on Amazon Prime, is getting two more seasons. Starring Steven Yeun, Sandra Oh, J.K. Simmons, Walton Goggins, Mark Hamill and so many more talents, this series brings the Skybound comic book to life in a way that doesn’t skimp on the intense themes.


Steven Yeun and Robert Kirkman, the creator of the series, released a short video to announce the additional seasons. Kirkman also created the Walking Dead, in which Yeun starred as well. Could we have another comic based hit on our hands? We’d like to think so.

Hey, you’re here again…at the end! I’m very proud of you. That completes the news for this week. Is there a story you’ll be sharing with your fellow nerds? Share with us what trailer has you most excited in the comments and online. Remember to stay safe this weekend! Don’t forget to come back next week for more news.
