A new Deadpool series is coming from Marvel Comics

Break out the chimichangas because the Merc With a Mouth is coming back to Marvel Comics this fall with a brand new ongoing solo series. The publisher has announced that "Deadpool" #1 will hit shelves on November 2, with writers Alyssa Wong and Martin Coccolo at the helm. A logline for the new series reads as follows.

The world knows Wade Wilson is one of the top mercenary/assassins in the Marvel Universe, even if he is simultaneously the most annoying one... but he's pushing to make that recognition official as he auditions for the elite group known as the Atelier. Now, he has 48 hours to kill one of the world's most famous supervillains. Only problem? He's been kidnapped, and something... strange... is GROWING INSIDE HIM.

Matt Ryan is back as Constantine, this time in Harley Quinn!

Matt Ryan has made one heck of a career out of what seemed like a short-lived thing. The actor appeared as John Constantine in NBC's "Constantine," which lasted just a single season. However, Ryan has since voiced the character in multiple animated projects in addition to reprising the role on "Legends of Tomorrow" for several seasons on The CW. Now, he's back once more, this time in the latest episode of "Harley Quinn" season 3 on HBO Max. We won't spoil how he factors into the proceedings but it appears Ryan isn't done as Constantine just yet.

Warner Bros. is weighing what to do with The Flash, canceling it is not off the table

Ezra Miller has had a string of highly-public and concerning issues lately, including a recent felony burglary charge, amongst many other things. That has, as a result, put Warner Bros. in a precarious situation as Miller is starring as Barry Allen in next year's "The Flash" movie, a $200 million blockbuster that has reportedly done very well in test screenings. But the actor's troubles are simply becoming too much to ignore. A new report from The Hollywood Reporter indicates that the studio is now weighing three options. First, the hope is that Miller will seek professional help, do an interview explaining things, and the movie opens as planned. Second, Miller does no press and is replaced after the film releases. Lastly, and crucially, the film could be scrapped altogether if the situation gets any worse. That would be brutal for many, many reasons, but it is not off the table. We'll see how this shakes out.
