Green Lantern - Grant Morrison

In brightest day, in blackest night, no streaming subscriber shall escape my sight, let those who worship Disney+, beware my power…on HBO Max!

In what feels like Warner Bros.’ first truly big shot across the bow of their competition in the streaming wars, a new Green Lantern television series has been announced for the HBO Max streaming service. The title character, a DC Comics mainstay who has been kept off the screen since his disastrous 2011 movie, is primed and ready for a comeback and it certainly sounds like WB is hoping superhero fans will follow him to their new service, which needs a heavy-hitter if it wants to compete against Netflix, Disney+, AppleTV+, and everyone else.

William Hurt in Black Widow

Once upon a time, it was Big Major News when a character from a superhero movie would appear in another superhero movie. But thanks to the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this kind of cross-pollination is something we’ve come to accept. So yeah, of course William Hurt‘s Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross is going to be in the upcoming Black Widow movie. It’s cool news, but not necessarily surprising news.

Arctic Dogs Trailer

Remember Balto, the 1995 animated movie about a sled dog who must make a dangerous trek in order to deliver life-saving medicine to the children of an isolated community? The new film Arctic Dogs asks “What if that, but without so many tiny coffins?” Yes, this is an animated film about animals delivering packages across the snowy wilderness and it is complete with everything you’ve come to loathe about so many modern animated movies: a needlessly stacked celebrity cast, a volume that never drops below 11, and so much more!
