the simpsons short disney onward

It's been nearly a year since the deal that allowed the Walt Disney Company to acquire 21st Century Fox and its many entertainment assets was finalized, and we're still seeing the various big and small changes to spin out of that massive acquisition. While many superhero fans have been focused on the impending introduction of the X-Men and Fantastic Four into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that's far from the only major victory achieved. Disney also got The Simpsons, one of the most recognizable and popular entertainment brands in the world, as part of the deal, and the company is still finding ways to make those beloved characters a bigger part of its overall image.

In the past, this has included things like putting The Simpsons front and center in ads for things like Disney+, but now it also includes theatrical exhibition. The franchise's official Instagram revealed that, for the first time, the show will premiere a brand-new short film in front of a Disney release. The short, titled "Playdate with Destiny," will follow Maggie Simpson and will play in theaters everywhere in front of Pixar's latest adventure, Onward. (via Syfy.com)

Onward -- and The Simpsons short -- is in theaters March 6.

Titans has found its Barbara Gordon.

Variety has learned that Savannah Welch has been cast in the role of the HBO Max show’s upcoming third season.

In Season 3, Barbara Gordon is Gotham City Police Commissioner and uses a wheelchair. She used to be Batgirl until she was shot and paralyzed by the Joker. She has a combative relationship with Bruce Wayne and her life gets more complicated when Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites) returns to Gotham, rekindling their old romance and starting a new crime fighting partnership.

Welch is known for her role in the History Channel military drama Six, in which she played a Marine who suffered an amputation in combat. Her other onscreen appearances include the critically acclaimed films Boyhood and Tree of Life.

Welch herself is an amputee, losing one of her legs after an accident in 2016. Since then, she has become a spokesperson for the disability community.
SWASHBUCKLING CYBERPUNK ADVENTURE TAKES FLIGHT IN 'JULES VERNE’S LIGHTHOUSE'

Bestselling creative duo David Hine and Brian Haberlin—who brought readers breakout hits like The Marked and Sonata—are back again this April with an all-new adventure in Jules Verne’s: Lighthouse.

Set on the high seas of space, and based upon the work of master storyteller Jules Verne, this five issue science fiction miniseries will launch from Image/Shadowline with an extra length first issue.

Brian introduced me to this lesser-known Jules Verne story of dastardly brigands and survival on a lonely, windswept island,” said Hine. “We did the obvious thing and transformed it into an epic science-fiction tale of space piracy, wormholes, galaxy-spanning conflict and a glitchy but lovable robot called Moses.”

Jules Verne’s: Lighthouse is set at the edge of the galaxy, where there is a giant supercomputer known as the Lighthouse. The only brain powerful enough to navigate ships through a sargasso of naturally occurring wormholes, potentially cutting months or even years off a spaceship’s journey. Three humans, one alien, and a nanny bot have manned the remote station for years in relative peace until the arrival of Captain Kongre and his band of cutthroat pirates threatens the future of civilization and reveals that each of the Lighthouse crew has been hiding a shocking secret.

He who controls the Lighthouse controls this part of the galaxy.

Haberlin added: “Lighthouse is a story that has been in my orbit for years. It’s one of Jules Verne’s most interesting stories on an emotional/psychological level. David and I love playing with flawed characters and this story is simply full of them. A tale of survival and redemption, against all odds at the far corner of the universe!

Jules Verne’s: Lighthouse #1 Cover A by Haberlin and Geirrod Van Dyke (Diamond Code FEB210038) and Jules Verne’s: Lighthouse #1 Cover B by Haberlin and Van Dyke (Diamond Code FEB210039) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, April 14.

Jules Verne’s: Lighthouse #1 will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.



NETFLIX LANDS ADAPTATION OF YA GRAPHIC NOVEL ‘HEARTSTOPPER’

Heartstopper

Deadline reports that Netflix is to adapt YA graphic novel Heartstopper as an eight-part series with Doctor Who and Sherlock helmer Euros Lyn attached to direct.

This comes 18 months after See-Saw Films, the company behind Top of the Lake and State of the Union, optioned the rights to Alice Oseman’s comic.

The half-hour series will be written by Oseman, who previously published YA novels including Solitaire, Radio Silence and I Was Born For This!

Heartstopper tells the story of Nick and Charlie, two British teens at an all-boys grammar school. Charlie, a high-strung, openly gay overthinker, and Nick, a cheerful, soft-hearted rugby player, one day are made to sit together. They quickly become friends, and soon Charlie is falling hard for Nick, even though he doesn’t think he has a chance. But love works in surprising ways, and Nick is more interested in Charlie than either of them realized. Heartstopper is about love, friendship, loyalty and mental illness. It encompasses all the small stories of Nick and Charlie’s lives that together make up something larger.
'MY LITTLE PONY / TRANSFORMERS II' CONTINUES IDW’S WILD CROSSOVER OF BELOVED HASBRO BRANDS

By popular demand, IDW once again welcomes fans of all ages to the most imaginative comic book mashup of Hasbro creations ever with My Little Pony / Transformers II, a four-part monthly miniseries launching in April!



While using a modified Spacebridge to bring magic to Cybertron, the Decepticons end up unleashing a more powerful evil from Equestria than they ever could’ve imagined. Two worlds collide in the return of this hit crossover concept, with a first issue by writers James Asmus and Sam Maggs, and artists Jack Lawrence and Casey W. Coller!

“I can’t wait to jump back into this world of magical friendships that really is More than Meets the Eye,” says Maggs. “It’s such a blast coming up with the most fun (and downright weird) pairings of ponies and ‘bots, and I think fans of both series are going to be surprised at what’s we’ve got for them this second time around!”

“The first crossover was about as much fun as I’ve had in my writing career,” says Asmus. “I am hugely delighted that we’re not only doing a follow up, but getting to flip the script. In the first series, we got to tell really charming and fun stories by tossing the Autobots and Decepticons into the colorful, magical world of Equestria. But now, dragging dark magic and friendly ponies into the sci-fi world of Cybertron lets us play with brand new tones, toys, and team-ups!”

Editor Megan Brown says, “We are so excited to work with some amazingly talented writers and artists to bring this marvelous mashup back to comic stores! Just like the previous volume, many creators are contributing stories that are going to bring our favorite ponies to Cybertron and beyond, including returning writers James Asmus, Sam Maggs, Ian Flynn, and returning artists Jack Lawrence, Casey W. Coller, Priscilla Tramontano, and Tony Fleecs — all joined by some new, exciting faces! The creators on this series are exceptional, able to bridge the gap between Autobot and pony to make a colorful, vibrant world. We’re thrilled for everyone (and everypony!) to see what we have in store!”

My Little Pony / Transformers II #1 will be available with multiple cover variants for retailers and fans to enjoy, including Cover A by Tony Fleecs, Cover B by Bethany McGuire-Smith, and two Retailer Incentive editions featuring art by Jon Gray and Anna Malkova, respectively.

For information on how to acquire copies of My Little Pony and Transformers comic books, please contact your local comic shop or visit www.comicshoplocator.com to find a store near you.

WHAT IF PETER PARKER BECAME VENOM?

This April, writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Pasqual Ferry team up for a Spider-Man story like none other in SPIDER-MAN: SPIDER’S SHADOW. The critically acclaimed writer, currently wowing readers with his Eisner-nominated work on Daredevil, has crafted a thrilling saga that will explore Peter Parker’s dark side. Superstar artist Pasqual Ferry (The Mighty Thor) and colorist Matt Hollingsworth (Hawkeye) join him to bring to life one of the most ruthless Spider-Man stories Marvel Comics has ever told.

Peter Parker once put on an alien suit that nearly destroyed his life – but what if he’d never taken it off? Ignoring every warning, Spidey embraces the dark symbiote! Haunted by terrible nightmares and exhausted by an endless barrage of bad guys, Peter can’t seem to catch a break these days. So when the Hobgoblin attacks, he finds a hero at the end of his rope…and vulnerable to new dark impulses. Spider-Man is about to change his rules – but is it truly Peter who is in charge?

“I’m thrilled to be kicking off a new era of “WHAT IF” stories with this tale of a Spider-Man gone bad! How bad will he be? Will he have a goatee and no hyphen in his name? Pick up issue one to find out! But seriously, I feel that with SPIDER’S SHADOW we’re exploring some dark situations with Spidey and the Marvel Universe, while making it cool and fun to read. I think longtime fans will love it and new readers will be amazed at what Marvel lets us do,” Zdarsky teased. “Pasqual and Matt are producing amazing work on this book. When every page comes in, I share them with all of my friends even though Marvel says I’m not allowed to do that.”

“Since I started working at Marvel some long years ago, I always dreamed of drawing Spider-Man, I came close a couple of times to get it, but the God of Thunder and Iron Man got in the way at the last moment— which were quite a joy too. So when I was offered the opportunity to draw this miniseries, you can imagine my happiness. In addition, I always wanted to experiment with the black suit from Secret Wars so the icing on the cake was doing that in the form of a “What If” series set at the beginning of that journey,” Ferry said. “Chip's script is really shocking and surprising, a delight for someone fan of the character like me, and I'm sure it will catch the readers as much as it is drawing it with me. Hold on to the seats, because SPIDER’S SHADOW is going to surprise you in a way that you cannot imagine!”

Check out the cover by Phil Noto below and don’t miss this terrifying tale when SPIDER-MAN: SPIDER’S SHADOW #1 hits stands in April.
