Samurai Jack Returning

Earlier this year, Adult Swim brought us the fifth and final season of the acclaimed Emmy-winning animated series Samurai Jack. After an initial run that lasted from 2001 through 2004, the series from Genndy Tartakovsky disappeared for 13 years, only to be revived to finish the story of the titular samurai’s battle with the shapeshifting demon called Aku. Soon you’ll be able to have every episode of the series in high-definition.

Cartoon Network and Adult Swim have have announced a Samurai Jack complete series box set that will have the first four initial seasons of the series as well as the final fifth season from the revival earlier this year. Though the first four seasons have been available on DVD for awhile now, this marks the first time they’ll be available on Blu-ray.

Morning Watch - Michael Bolton's Game of Thrones Theme

(The Morning Watch is a recurring feature that highlights a handful of noteworthy videos from around the web. They could be video essays, fanmade productions, featurettes, short films, hilarious sketches, or just anything that has to do with our favorite movies and TV shows.)

In this edition, listen to Michael Bolton‘s theme song for Game of Thrones, as if the series were a cheesy drama from the early 1990s. Plus, a video essay for Christopher Nolan‘s Memento takes a closer look at telling a story in reverse and Futurama voice star Billy West reenacts a scene from Back to the Future as Fry and Professor Farnsworth.

Black Samurai TV show

Starz isn’t on the same level as a powerhouse premium service like HBO, but they’re still one of the big players in that space, and they’ve recently made waves by catering to underserved audiences with shows like Power and Outlander (not to mention the splash they made this year with their adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods). Now they’re looking to get into the blaxploitation genre with a TV adaptation of Black Samuari, and they’ve found the perfect person to star: Common, who kicked some serious ass in John Wick: Chapter 2.

The Joker Spin-Off

If you thought we knew about all of the DC Comics movies that were in the works over the next few years, think again.

Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment are reportedly developing a Batman spin-off that will focus on the origin of The Dark Knight’s nemesis The Joker. While a story looking at the early days of The Joker gives us prequel concerns, it’s the talent involved behind the scenes that is most intriguing. Find out all about The Joker spin-off below.
