During the D23 Expo, Marvel announced more details on the previously announced non-scripted Marvel's Hero Project series heading to Disney+.
'THE WALKING DEAD': MIDSEASON PREMIERE OPENING MINUTES CLIP02/16/20 @ 11:38 pm EST
The first-produced non-fiction, unscripted series by Marvel New Media, Marvel's Hero Project, will premiere with the launch of Disney+ on Tuesday, November 12. The remaining episodes will be released weekly on Fridays, starting with Episode 2 on Friday, November 15.
In life, it doesn’t take wearing a suit of iron, carrying a mythical hammer or swinging from spider webs to be a real hero. Sometimes the person who can make a positive difference in the world is the person who simply sees a problem and has the passion to find a creative solution. The first of its kind for Marvel Entertainment, the 20-episode series shares the remarkable, positive change several young heroes are making in their own communities across the country. These inspiring kids have dedicated their lives to selfless acts of bravery and kindness, and now, Marvel celebrates them as the true Super Heroes they are by welcoming them into Marvel's Hero Project.
“There’s so much of what Marvel is, what it stands for. These kids are changing the world in simple ways. Doing great work, and not letting their age be a deterrent," said series executive producer Sana Amanat. During the panel, the producers all agreed that these stories were important to share on a platform like Disney+ because these individuals embodied the spirit of our Marvel characters in that we can all overcome challenges to do good in the world. Stephen Wacker added, "Taking the story of a normal kid who is living their life and now having them face these hurdles. That’s what we do. We find out what all these kids’ powers are.” These special kids that were highlighted to prove that heroes and inspirations are everywhere around us, and you don't have to have any special powers to become a hero yourself.
The series will tackle subjects such as Hailey who helps loved ones with Alzheimer's make connections through puzzles to a young boy who grows an urban garden to feed the hungry despite his own family's financial hardships. Sarah Amos, series producer shared on the panel, "Anyone can watch this show and feel like they can go out and do something. It helps families talk about difficult issues."
Before wrapping up the panel, the creatives behind the series revealed that not only will each young Hero will receive their very own personalized comic book starring them. Steve Wacker explained, "Marvel Comics is the heart of what we do, and to see yourself on one of those covers is truly one of the coolest surprise for these kids." And viewers can expect some very special guests surprising them as well. Sana Amanat added about the kids featured on the show, "They are truly Marvel Super Heroes now, and they deserve to be."
Marvel’s Hero Project is produced by Marvel New Media in partnership with Maggievision Productions. Executive Produced by Sana Amanat, Sarah Amos, Joe Quesada, Shane Rahmani, Stephen Wacker, and Liza Wyles for Marvel and Maura Mandt and John Hirsch for MaggieVision Productions. Disney+ launches on November 12.

Spoilers for Harley Quinn S1 penultimate episode "Devil's Snare"! 'BATWOMAN': NEW VAMPIRE IN TOWN IN "DRINK ME" PREVIEW02/16/20 @ 11:04 pm EST
The first season of the animated Harley Quinn
series on the DC Universe streaming service was expected to be fraught with drastic twists and turns (as well as some expletives NOT deleted), but was anyone expecting one of the main characters to die?
Well, that's what happened in the penultimate episode of the first season, as Harley and her allies Poison Ivy, Doctor Psycho, Clayface, Sy Borgman, and King Shark attempt to storm the Joker's new base in the heart of Gotham. While they manage to thwart the Clown Prince of Crime's attempt to destroy the city (with the help of Kite Man), they do suffer a major blow.
In combat, Harley is snatched by a giant tree and is subsequently saved by the gigantic Poison Ivy. As the two share a heart-to-heart moment about their friendship, Ivy gets shot in the chest by the Joker's cannon, forcing Harley and her allies to watch as Ivy bleeds to death.
It's definitely the most tragic ending of the series thus far, as Ivy and Harley's friendship has proven to be one of the most important aspects of the series. (via ComicBook
The season 1 finale of Harley Quinn
hits DC Universe on Feb. 21.

ROBERT PATTINSON AS 'THE BATMAN': FIRST LOOK02/16/20 @ 2:16 pm EST
Superman and Batman are teaming up yet again, only this time it's not to take on a brand new threat, but an old one. In fact, it's the FIRST one. The super friends have teamed up to fight obscure villains before, but in their upcoming series Batman/Superman
, they're facing the Ultra-Humanite himself!
For those unaware of this early villain, it's important to know that he was the first real Superman super-villain in Action Comics
. Up until that point, Superman mostly fought corrupt landlords and extortionists. But the Ultra-Humanite was meant to be the ultimate embodiment of that corruption, using his superior intellect to run extortion scams which would somehow allow him to "dominate the Earth." It might seem like a ludicrous plan... but that's why Ultra-Humanite was a villain in a class of his own.
BATMAN/SUPERMAN #10 Release Date: May 27th, 2020 Written by: JOSHUA WILLIAMSON Art and cover by: CLAYTON HENRY Card stock variant cover by: RICCARDO FEDERICI

War is hell, but what follows can be just as surprising and cruel, as IDW Publishing’s upcoming historical horror miniseries Sea of Sorrows
will make clear.
Set in the immediate aftermath of World War I, Sea of Sorrows
follows the crew of the SS Vagabond, a ship hired by a former naval officer searching for a sunken U-boat and the treasure it hides inside. But there’s more under the water than anyone expects, and that’s without the danger of a double-crossing crew on the surface out for themselves…
The series reteams Rich Douek and Alex Cormack, creators of last year’s Road of Bones
The five-issue series is set to launch in May, with a first issue featuring a cover by Cormack. (via THR

reports that after a string of pricey duds with Gemini Man, Terminator: Dark Fate,
and Rhythm Section,
Paramount gets back on track with its net $87M production of Sonic the Hedgehog.
This film’s 4-day projections have continually boomed over the weekend, from $55M+ on midday Friday, to $64M+ Saterday morning to around $68M per Paramount Sunday AM (that’s also where the industry average is; some even believe the blue critter can run up to $70M+).
After a strong $20.6M Saturday, a 2% dip from Friday’s $21M, for a 3-day of $57M, Sonic the Hedgehog
has feasibly beat the 3-day start of Legendary/Warner Bros.’ Pokemon: Detective Pikachu
($54.3M) to become the best opening for a videogame feature adaptation of all-time. On a 4-day basis, Sonic
is also faster than Detective Pikachu
which earned $58M over a non-holiday period last May.All in, worldwide for Sonic the Hedgehog is $100M, which is fantastic, but not a record debut for a video game pic. Pikachu‘s technical global start (with domestic) was $157.3M, while Legendary/Universal’s Warcraft was around $119.1M, not counting its pre-box office run in China.
