  1. I think it's Godfathers of Fury http://hkmdb.com/db/movies/view.mhtml?id=9501&display_set=eng
  2. Newcomer Jayme Lawson has scored an undisclosed key role in The Batman. This is her first major role after graduating from Julliard. I can take one guess who she might play and I'm going to take a wild one at that: I think she may play Barbara Gordon, daughter of Commissioner Gordon (Jeffrey Wright)

    Pro Wrestling Thread 2019

    On Thursday night, a drunk Jimmy Havoc got into a physical fight with Excalibur at a restaurant while the AEW team were celebrating Tony Schiavone's birthday. It started with the two exchanging verbal grabs but it got physical and even was taken outside. Since then, both of them talked out their issues and the heat was done. Havoc was remorseful about what happened. AEW's Tony Khan had this to say: “I wouldn’t call it a fight, I’ve seen a lot worse in the world of football, both in England and the NFL — I’ve seen a lot worse, and I saw a lot worse tonight. They scrapped around and it was cool yesterday.” It looks like WWE's trio of Japanese female stars have now gone from babyfaces to heels. Io Shirai is excited about her new heel turn as she feels she has been able to be more confident. “To the fans, my character changed suddenly. But I took a long time to think about it and it was a gradual process for me. When I came to WWE, I wanted to try out something different. They already had Asuka and Kairi (Sane). So, I wanted to show something new. I wanted to show a new side of Japanese woman wrestlers. I have mainly been a babyface in my career but I wanted to make a big change. This has given me more confidence. The heel turn has added a lot of new things to my character and that has certainly boosted my confidence. I came with a different role but this change has been a boost for me.” A few weeks ago, Kairi Sane and Asuka turned on their manager Paige when Asuka pulled a Tajiri and spit green mist in her face on SmackDown. After his final session and eventual closing of his Storm Wrestling Academy in December, Lance Storm will begin his new career at WWE as a producer. Anthony Carelli, who is better known as former WWE superstar Santino Marella, has been named Official Ambassador of Judo Canada.

    Super Sentai Series/Power Rangers Thread

    Toei announced their 2020 Super Sentai Series with their trademark. The official name of the series will be Mashin Sentai Kirameiger. It looks to be a magic-centered series.
  14. Now that it is official that he will be included in the 2022 sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, let's take a look at the Japanese Spider-Man series, which began a 3-year partnership between Marvel and Japan's Toei Company. The series stars Shinji Todo as Takeru Yamashiro, a motocross racer who finds a shooting star and his father, a space archaelogist, is killed during his investigation. Takeru discovers the shooting star is a spaceship called The Marveller. Upon his arrival, Takeru meets Garia, the last survivor of the destroyed Planet Spider. For 400 years, Garia has attempted to stop the ones responsible for destroying his home, Professor Monster and his Cross Army. As he is dying, Garia injects some of his blood in Takeru and gives him a bracelet which gives him both the Spider Protector (his suit) and Spider-String (their version of his webbing). As the heroic Spider-Man, Takeru possesses a car known as the GP-7 and in addition, the Marveller has the ability to change into the mecha warrior Leopordon. With his newfound powers, Takeru as Spider-Man faces off against Professor Monster and the Cross Army. The series ran from May 1978 to March 1979 and its success led to Marvel's attempt to give Toei an adaptation of Captain America that would evolve in the now official third Super Sentai Series, Battle Fever J. The series was officially the beginning of the S3 but Himitsu Sentai Goranger and JAKQ Dengekitai would be considered as part of the S3 in 1994 by Toei. Marvel and Toei would collaborate on two more Super Sentai Series, 1980's Denshi Sentai Denjiman and Taiyo Sentai Sun Vulcan. This "Honest Trailer" shows his dark the Japanese Spider-Man series was:
