There has been plenty happening in the world of geekdom of the last couple of days and it can all be a little bit overwhelming sometimes. You may even find yourself asking: wait, what happened? If so, I have got you covered.
Now You See Me 3 Hires New Writers
If the fact that a Now You See Me 3 movie is in the works was news to you then you’re not alone. After the second movie tanked this past summer, nobody was expecting a follow up. However, it seems that the studio had been so enthused by the success of the original that they immediately signed off on two sequels which brings us to where we are now. Fortunately, they are making some changes with this installment: Neil Widener and Gavin James will be writing this film. The duo are relatively new but hopefully they can breathe this franchise back to life. At the moment the main cast are said to be returning for the third film.
The Arrowverse is alive and kicking. All of the shows (Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow) have come back strong this autumn and now we can now look forward to a four-day crossover event. In previous years we have seen The Flash and Arrow crossover but in just three weeks time all four of the shows will meet. The CW posted a little teaser which you can check out below:
Cloak And Dagger Delayed
In April, Freeform announced that they were developing a new series based on the Marvel comic: Cloak and Dagger. We had hoped to see it air early in the new year but the show’s release has been delayed to Winter 2018 as the first script undergoes rewrites. I have never been a massive fan of Freeform (I imagine that I’m not their target demographic) but as they lose their biggest shows, Pretty Little Liars and Switched at Birth, they are running out of successful content.
Are you still interested in the Now You See Me franchise? Are four shows too many for a crossover? Do you care about the Cloak and Dagger series? Let me know in the comments.
