Last Week’s Episode: Can You Handle This?

Looked up the lyrics to Bootylicious for today's headline and honestly, do not recommend. This week I'm fixated on the idea of those dead Funko eyes, huge and unblinking, staring at me from a movie screen, which I would also not recommend. Dive in!

Cannot believe the aesthetic here is gonna get me to see this movie but here we are.

Paramount has bought the rights to Valiant Comics’ Harbringer away from Sony, but they’ve kept director Justin Tipping, producer Neal Moritz, and their current script. What this means for Valiant’s expanded universe remains to be seen, as Sony will still be releasing Vin Diesel’s Bloodshot next year. [THR]

Robert Downey Jr. will be dominating the narrative again in the upcoming Black Widow film. I’m hoping he plays a fun surrogate parental figure for her. [ComicsBeat]

The Funko POP! movie is coming, please don’t make me elaborate. [io9]

Hello, leaked Nightwing — this set shot from Titans reveals both Nightwing’s costume and the character’s best assets.

Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight (Netflix’s Daredevil, Pacific Rim: Uprising) has departed Netflix’s Jupiter’s Legacy before wrapping the first season, despite already completing half of the season’s eight episodes. Based on the comic by Mark Millar and Frank Quitely, Jupiter’s Legacy will be the first series from Netflix’s megadeal with Mark Millar’s Millarworld and was probably meant to start a whole franchise. We’ll see if more creative differences arise. [Daily Dot]

The New Warriors show is reportedly dead, its pilot homeless after being dropped by Freeform. Despite being fascinated with the entire concept of a New Warriors show, this is probably saving it from a slow death as Disney shuffles its IP around various networks and their own streaming service.

The cast for BBC’s The Watch, a Discworld adaptation, has been announced, with Richard Dorner (Game of Thrones) as Sam Vimes. Non-binary actor Jo Eaton-Kent will be playing Constable Cherry. [THR]

HBO’s House Targaryen Game of Thrones prequel inches closer to production, probably. [Deadline]

Don’t call it a reboot — Sam Esmail (Mr. Robot) will be at the helm of a new Battlestar Galactica series set in the same universe as the 2004 reimagining. It’ll inexplicably be on NBC’s streaming service. [Newsarama]

Alexander Skarsgård joins the CBS All-Access adaptation of Stephen King’s The Stand as lead Randall Flagg, which raises the question: which King story do you want to see Stellan Skarsgård in? [ComicBook]

The Vic Mignogna case continues as Judge Chupp ordered mediation with a deadline of…October 3rd.  [Dallas Morning News]

CBS continues to be a total shitshow as yet another person steps down. John Glenn, showrunner for David Boreanaz vehicle SEAL Team, has left the show and had his overall deal with CBS terminated after an internal investigation at the network. The network did not comment on what the results of the investigation was or what spurred it. [THR]

Surely Tom DeLonge has been in some kind of movie, right? Anyway, Navy Confirms UFO Videos Posted by Blink 182 Rocker Are Real and Should Not Have Been Released [NBC Chicago]

The cast of Girlfriends reunites on black-ish this upcoming season.  [EW]

Francis Ford Coppola has spent the last two years to restore the Black narratives cut from his film The Cotton Club due to studio pressure. The new cut is The Cotton Club Encore, with 24 minutes of added footage giving more precedence to the Black club performers. [Vanity Fair]
