DC told the creators of the animated series Harley Quinn that under no circumstances could Batman go down on Catwoman
The HBO Max adult animated series creators, Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker, told Variety in an interview, “in this third season of Harley we had a moment where Batman was going down on Catwoman. And DC was like, ‘You can’t do that. You absolutely cannot do that.’ They’re like, ‘Heroes don’t do that.’ So, we said, ‘Are you saying heroes are just selfish lovers?’ They were like, ‘No, it’s that we sell consumer toys for heroes. It’s hard to sell a toy if Batman is also going down on someone.’”

It looks like we could soon be seeing the Punisher returning to the live action Marvel Universe.
Plans are for Jon Bernthal to return as the gun-wielding vigilante, The Punisher in the upcoming Moon Knight series on Disney Plus. It's beleived he will assume Moon Knight is a criminal and begin hunting him, eventually teaming up with him to fight a common enemy.
Although this is a rumor at this time it's been wildly speculated that this will happen for months now so the odds of it happening are rather high.
Oscar Isaac stars as Marc Spector / Moon Knight. The series was announced in August 2019, with Slater hired in November. Mohamed Diab was hired to direct multiple episodes of the series in October 2020, with directing duo Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead also joining the series in January 2021 when Isaac was confirmed to star. Filming began in late April 2021 in Budapest.
Moon Knight is scheduled to be released in 2022, and will consist of six episodes. It will be part of Phase Four of the MCU.
After more than 20 years, the story of Dominic Toretto is drawing to a close — but not any time soon. Vin Diesel told The Associated Press on Thursday that after two more films, his chapter of the Fast and Furious saga will end in 2024.
"Every story deserves its own ending," Diesel said during a F9 press junket. "I know people are going to feel like it doesn’t have to end, but I think all good things should," he said. "There are reasons for a finale. I think this franchise has deserved it."
That isn't to say that there won't be more Fast and Furious films period. Other characters could get spinoffs — like we already saw with Hobbs & Shaw — or the films could maybe even reboot one day with new cast members entirely. As long as the cars go vroom, we're in.
The series debuted with 2001's The Fast and Furious, starring Diesel and the late Paul Walker. F9, originally scheduled for 2020, was one of the first movies to be delayed because of the coronavirus outbreak.

Ned Beatty, who made a sparkling feature film debut in Deliverance before turning in noteworthy efforts in Nashville, Network and Homicide: Life on the Street as one of the most respected character actors of his time, has died. He was 83.
Beatty died Sunday of natural causes at his Los Angeles home, his daughter Blossom Beatty told The Hollywood Reporter.
The Kentucky native also portrayed Lily Tomlin’s good ol’ boy hustler-lawyer husband in Robert Altman’s Nashville (1975), was a slippery Miami district attorney in Alan J. Pakula’s All the President’s Men (1976) and elicited laughs as Lex Luthor’s (Gene Hackman) bumbling sidekick Otis in Superman (1978) and its 1980 sequel.

A live-action “Ted” prequel series from Seth MacFarlane is coming to Peacock, with the “Family Guy” creator in talks to reprise his role as the voice of the foul-mouthed teddy bear.
The live-action series, based on Seth MacFarlane’s feature films released by Universal Pictures with MRC Film, will be executive produced by MacFarlane and Erica Huggins for Fuzzy Door. MacFarlane is under an overall deal with Universal.
“Ted” was MacFarlane’s directorial debut and starred himself as the voice of Ted, an anthropomorphic teddy bear brought to life and the best friend of Mark Wahlberg’s John Bennett. The movie also starred Mila Kunis. A sequel, “Ted 2,” was released in 2015, which swapped in Amanda Seyfried for Kunis.

According to a social media post from director James Wan, “Aquaman 2” is officially called “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.” What is the Lost Kingdom? Why can’t anyone find it? And how does Aquaman figure into all of this? Those are questions we still don’t have answers for, but we’re going to guess it involves Jason Momoa taking off his shirt and showing off his abs at least 3 or 4 times throughout the runtime. Kidding aside, fan reaction to “Aquaman” was massive, with the biggest DCEU box office yet. So, there’s a lot riding on ‘Lost Kingdom,’ as WB is hoping that Momoa and Wan can continue to bring in Marvel Studios-esque box office numbers to the DC franchise.
While we don’t know the story of ‘Lost Kingdom,’ we do know that there will be some people from the original film joining Momoa in the new feature. Amber Heard has been very vocal with her excitement about returning to the “Aquaman” franchise. And it’s assumed that Yaya Abdul-Mateen II will be returning as the villainous Black Manta.
“Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” is expected to arrive in theaters on December 16, 2022.
