The Mortuary Assistant is Heading to a Bigger Screen 

The Mortuary Assistant is an indie game about the worse first day on the job…EVER! Seriously, you play as a young woman working at a morgue only to find out there is a demon in one of the bodies and it is trying to possess you. The game’s publisher DreadXP has announced that they’re making the leap to film with an adaptation of the game, which is to be directed by Jeremiah Kipp (SinsSlapface). Patrick Ewald will produce the film, while DarkStone Digital’s Brian Clarke and Ted Hentschke will executive produce, and Abbey Smith will co-produce. There has been no casting news yet, but we think Allison Williams (Get Out) would be perfect as Rebecca Owens.

Hear about her latest collection — unveiled at the 2022 D23 Expo — and how her family creates magical experiences for her customers and Disney fans.

DC Fandome Canceled 

The year was 2020. DC Comics & Warner Bros created a virtual global experience to rival Disney’s Investors Day. That event was known as DC Fandome! DC Fandome shared exclusive content and interactive experiences with fans worldwide. It only grew bigger in 2021.  Fans will be disappointed to learn that this year’s DC Fandome has been canceled and it may stay that way.  A statement was released by Warner & Discovery,

“With the return of in-person events, Warner Bros. Discovery is excited to be able to engage with our fans live at numerous comic-cons around the world and will not be scheduling DC FanDome for 2022.” 

The decision not to host FanDome also comes during a period of transition for DC at Warner Bros. Discovery, with the company attempting to find a producer to oversee film and television at the company, in a role similar to Marvel Studio’s Kevin Feige at Disney.  It also coincides with the changes on its streaming app HBO Max, which saw the cancelation of many shows and films, including Batgirl. Ezra Miller has managed to survive the DC purge.

Return to Hogwarts 

Villains and magic seem to be the theme of this week’s FNR! Oh, and makeup! The influencer-powered brand, Colourpop, is no stranger to collaborating with fandom. This week they revealed a teaser of their next collection and let’s just say…

Trevor Slattery Lands Another Role 

Everyones’ favorite performance actor Trevor Slattery(Sir Ben Kingsley) from Shang-Chi and Iron Man 3 is back! The fan-favorite character will be making his return in Marvel’s Wonder Man.

According to Wiki, “Wonder Man/Simon Williams is the son of rich industrialist Sanford Williams, owner of Williams Innovations. Simon inherits the munitions factory after his father’s death, but the company’s profits fall due to its biggest competitor Tony Stark and his company Stark Industries. On the advice of his brother Eric, Simon tries to embezzle funds from his company but is caught and incarcerated. Simon blames Stark for this and accepts the proposition of master villain Baron Heinrich Zemo after the Enchantress pays his bail, as a pawn is required to infiltrate the Avengers. The desperate Simon Williams agrees and is transformed into an ion-powered being with superhuman powers. His powers are tested, and he is shown to have great superhuman strength and durability, even defeating the Executioner. Called Wonder Man by Zemo, he is then sent to meet and join the Avengers, with instructions to betray them at a critical moment so that Zemo’s Masters of Evil can destroy the Avengers.” 

Is Trevor back to being a villain? More importantly…WHERE IS MORRIS?
