‘THE BOYS’ SPINOFF PUT ON FAST-TRACK DEVELOPMENT AT AMAZON FOLLOWING MOTHERSHIP’S RECORD SEASON 2 LAUNCH09/24/20 @ 8:28 pm EST
reports that Zack Snyder’s zombie movie Army of the Dead
may be done shooting, but it doesn’t mean a new actor can’t be added to the roll call.
Tig Notaro, the actress and stand-up comic who recently appeared in Star Trek: Discovery
, has joined the Netflix movie and will replace Chris D’Elia, the comedian who has been accused of sexually harassing underage girls.
The movie, which has an all-star international cast led by Dave Bautista, wrapped principal photography late last year and had been in post-production when the pandemic hit American shores, prompting a lockdown in Hollywood. Snyder, who co-wrote and directed the movie, worked with post houses to keep the process going.
The movie will now undergo a quick round of reshoots to incorporate Notaro’s role. Due to actors being already dispersed post-filming and due to pandemic restrictions, the incorporation will be a combination of techniques, from actually reshooting scenes opposite an acting partner to using green screen and CG technology to blend her in.Dead
takes place after a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, centering on a group of mercenaries who take the ultimate gamble, venturing into the quarantine zone to pull off the greatest heist ever attempted.

Spoilers ahoy for Batgirl #49!'CREEPSHOW' ANIMATED SPECIAL COMING TO SHUDDER IN OCTOBER09/24/20 @ 1:09 pm EST
Barbara Gordon has officially quit as Batgirl. (via Screen Rant
Gordon has always felt like Gotham's most joyful vigilante, fighting crime with an exuberance that's entirely missing from the rest of the Bat-Family. This has frequently made Batgirl
comics quite unique, because they've lacked the grim undertones that typically come from Batman and his nearest and dearest.
For all that's the case, though, Barbara has actually paid a heavy price for her good nature. This was best demonstrated in "The Killing Joke," in which the Joker crippled her as part of an insane attempt to break Commissioner Gordon. Barbara refused to let that stop her, reinventing herself as the computer hacker Oracle for a time, and ultimately regaining the use of her legs and taking to Gotham's skies once again. Naturally, the current "Joker War" featured a disturbing rematch between Batgirl and the Joker, with Barbara finally confronting the trauma the Clown Prince of Crime had put her to. Still, she emerged from "Joker War" with a smile on her face once again.
But this week's Batgirl
#49, by writer Cecil Castellucci and artist Robbi Rodriguez, sees Barbara confront another traumatic situation. She learns her brother James has succumbed to dissociative identity disorder, and one of his personas is responsible for a spate of Batgirl-themed murders in Gotham. It all ends in a heartbreaking confrontation, with James choosing to commit suicide rather than to allow this shadow to eclipse him. Even more horrifically, former Commissioner Gordon sees James' death and misinterprets it, believing Batgirl to be responsible. The price for heroism has finally become too high, and Batgirl flees the scene of the crime, deciding to quit. Batgirl
#49 is in stores now!

Red Sonja swings into her new limited series, The Price of Blood, by Luke Lieberman and Walter Geovani this December.
Red Sonja caretaker Luke Lieberman returns to the fiery-haired heroine for another chapter in her early adventures. He's joined by fan-favorite Sonja artist Walter Geovani (Death-Defying 'Devil, Clean Room
) whose prolific work on the character goes back over a decade, most celebrated being his run with Gail Simone. The blood-soaked colors are handled by Adriano Augusto, while the slashing sound effects are brought by Taylor Esposito.
"Sonja has had a really rough road, and it has made her very jaded, so she is searching for the brighter side of life. That is why she is so angry when this moment of happiness and innocence is stolen from her in this series," said writer Luke Lieberman. "The goal with Sonja, as with any good storytelling is to do something different than everything that has come before while staying true to her roots. That is always the balance - between honoring to the history and being open to the future."
"It´s great to be back! I'm always happy and honored to draw such an iconic character," said artist Walter Geovani. "Sonja is a badass, cutting heads off, but she also has an emotional side."
This new series takes place in the months following Lieberman's last saga, Birth of the She-Devil
[in paperback now], but can be read completely standalone like any great pulpy sword and sorcery tale. After the brutal events of that story, Sonja is looking to cut loose and drown out all the atrocities she has witnessed with ale. She travels to Aquilonia to attend the Festival of Fire with her new friend Elli.
Though Sonja's escape is destined to be shortlived, as local forces have a starkly different interpretation of the festival's patron god, Mitra. They come in to drench the festival in blood and Sonja finds herself invariably resisting them, and along the way spending time behind bars. Will the She-Devil With a Sword overcome this bloodshed and can she save the lives of those around her?
A pack of five brilliant covers grace the debut issue of this series. Geovani contributes one himself, and is joined by fantasy comics art pioneer Arthur Suydam, Red-regular Joseph Michael Linsner, a fearsome cosplay cover, and last but certainly not least, a ferocious piece by comics legend Michael Golden!
RED SONJA: THE PRICE OF BLOOD #1
is solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ October 2020 Previews catalog, and slated for release in December 2020. Comic book fans are encouraged to preorder copies of the issue with their local comic book retailers. It will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Kindle, iBooks, Google Play, Dynamite Digital, ComicsPlus, and more!
