  • A Sinister Six Movie Should Copy Spider-Man: No Way Home & Bring In Miles

    <figure><img src="https://static3.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/Sinister-six-movie-should-copy-spiderman-no-way-home-miles-morales.jpg" /></figure><p>Sony’s upcoming&nbsp;<strong><em>Sinister Six</em></strong> movie should take some inspiration from <strong><em>Spider-Man: No Way Home</em></strong> and introduce a new version of Miles Morales. Sony has had plans for a <em>Sinister Six</em> film since <em>The Amazing Spider-Man</em> film franchise was in progress. The second film, <em>The Amazing Spider-Man 2</em>, ended with a clear setup for the villain team, with the Green Goblin (Harry Osborn) and The Gentleman (Gustav Fiers) equipping allies (and possibly members) of Oscorp with advanced weapons and devices. The plans, unfortunately, never came to fruition, but Sony’s new villain-focused <em>Spider-Man</em> universe, which began with 2018’s <em>Venom</em>, has led to new plans for the iconic team.</p><p>Miles Morales - whose comic debut was in 2011’s alternate universe <em>Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man -</em>&nbsp;is his reality’s second web-slinger, taking Peter Parker’s place after his apparent death in a final confrontation with the&nbsp;Green Goblin. Miles and his stories were well-received, quickly growing in popularity among readers, and he made his cinematic debut in 2018’s animated film, <em>Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse</em>. As the star of numerous comics, an animated film, and a recent video game, it won’t be long before Miles has his long-awaited live-action debut.</p><p><br /></p><iframe src="//assertedclosureseaman.com/watchnew?key=adee9769ea74eb59e82d4f0cb2e6f816" width="728" height="90" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe><p>With <em>Sinister Six</em> reportedly being the endgame of Sony’s <em>Spider-Man</em> films, it’s reasonable to assume that the movie will be a crowd-pleasing epic with more than one payoff. Sony will reportedly work alongside Marvel Studios to tie their film in with the MCU, meaning that Tom Holland’s classic Peter Parker Spider-Man may face off against the six villains. Although Spider-Man was often on his own against the six in the comics, the film can easily justify introducing a second Spider-Man to even the odds and give viewers&nbsp;a live-action Miles Morales simultaneously.</p><figure><img src="https://static0.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/Miles-Morales-Spider-Man.jpg" /></figure><script async="async" data-cfasync="false" src="//assertedclosureseaman.com/df6b246306230b40cc3d52f95611198f/invoke.js"></script><div id="container-df6b246306230b40cc3d52f95611198f"></div> <p>Not only is Sony and Marvel Studious working together on the Sinister Six film, but the multiverse will be unleashed in the upcoming <em>No Way Home</em>. While the Miles Morales who appears in the Sony film could be their iteration, he might alternatively be from the MCU, creating a new kind of character dynamic for Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, who’s typically mentored by characters like Iron Man or Doctor Strange.</p><p>The <em>Sinister Six’s</em> villain roster can be comprised of characters from multiple realities as well. In addition to introducing the first live-action iteration of Miles Morales, the film can bring back actors like Alfred Molina, Jamie Foxx, and Willem Dafoe for yet another performance. With <em>No Way Home</em> bringing the iconic villains back, Sony could take advantage of their fan-favorite status, adding to the already crowd-pleasing introduction of Miles.</p><iframe src="//assertedclosureseaman.com/watchnew?key=504b591a28719b1270e09aa4045e24ab" width="728" height="90" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe><p><strong><em>Spider-Man: No Way Home</em></strong> will be the first live-action <em>Spider-Man</em> movie to use the multiverse for crossovers. In addition to bringing back characters from bygone film eras, they’ve also allowed for interaction with Sony’s <em>Spider-Man</em> universe. If Sony intends to make the <em><strong>Sinister Six</strong></em> film their franchise’s endgame, they’d make it an even more effective grand finale by bringing in Miles Morales.</p><p></p>

    How Supergirl Revamped Superman IV's Story And Made It Work

    <figure><img src="https://static3.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Supergirl-Arrowverse-Superman-IV-Revamp.jpg" /></figure><p style="text-align: center;"><strong>Warning: The following contains SPOILERS for <em>Supergirl</em> season 6, episode 15, "Hope For Tomorrow."</strong></p><p>The <em><strong>Supergirl</strong></em> season 6 episode "Hope For Tomorrow" enhanced the story of the Superman movie <strong><em>Superman 4: The Quest For Peace</em></strong> in every respect. The final movie to star Christopher Reeve as Kal-El of Krypton, <em>Superman 4</em> is widely considered to be the worst of the classic <em>Superman</em> films. Given that, it would be all but impossible for <em>Supergirl</em> to revamp <em>The Quest For Peace</em> and not improve it, but the episode "Hope For Tomorrow" successfully addressed nearly every common complaint about the movie.</p><p>The central storyline of the second half of <em>Supergirl</em> season 6 found Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist) competing with the exiled 5th Dimensional Princess Nyxly (Peta Sergeant) for control of seven magical totems, tied to the seven cosmic forces of Hope, Love, Courage, Humanity, Dreams, Destiny and Truth. Each totem required its wielder to pass a test proving their mastery of each force. The Test of Hope in the&nbsp;<em>Supergirl</em> season 6 episode "Hope For Tomorrow" proved particularly difficult, as it required the victor to "<em>inspire a hope that burns longer and brighter than the sun</em>." While this might ordinarily have been an easy task for Supergirl, this test came at a time when nuclear war seemed imminent between the nations of Kaznia and Corto Maltese and hope was in short supply.</p><p><br /></p><script async="async" data-cfasync="false" src="//assertedclosureseaman.com/1e71a47f091e20c4e35e8b5180b8f900/invoke.js"></script><div id="container-1e71a47f091e20c4e35e8b5180b8f900"></div> <p>The story of <em>Superman 4: The Quest For Peace</em>, was likewise based around the fear of nuclear war and Superman acting to end the threat after receiving a letter from a concerned boy. Sadly, the movie&nbsp;did so poorly it sunk any chance of a <em>Superman 5</em>. While the story of <em>Superman 4</em>&nbsp;made a noble effort to tackle a serious issue, the film suffered from budget cuts and editing issues that eliminated most of the film's more thoughtful moments in favor of recycled flight scenes and nonsensical padding. The <em>Supergirl</em> season 6 episode "Hope For Tomorrow" takes most of the story elements from <em>Superman IV</em>&nbsp;and builds upon the base concepts to create something far better.</p><figure><img src="https://static0.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Supergirl-Hope-For-Tomorrow-Peace-Conference.jpg" /></figure><p>Roughly halfway through the <em>Supergirl</em> season 6 episode "Hope For Tomorrow," Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath) asked the same question as the worried boy in <em>Superman 4: The Quest For Peace;&nbsp;</em>why can't Supergirl just take away all the nuclear weapons and throw them into the sun? Kara gave the same basic answer as Superman in the movie, saying that she was "<em>forbidden from interfering in human history.</em>" However, Kara further explained to her friend Lena Luthor that human nations needed to be free to determine their own destinies without some all-powerful alien imposing their beliefs on them. Kara also pointed out that even if she could get rid of all the nuclear weapons in the world, it wouldn't solve the conflicts that lead to war. (Ironically, Kara did wind up having to throw several nuclear missiles into the sun before the episode's end.)</p><p>This point was driven home by another scene, in which the United States diplomat overseeing the peace talks between Kaznia and Corto Maltese asked J'onn J'onzz (David Harewood) to use his telepathic powers to make the leaders of the two delegations sign a peace treaty. The Martian Manhunter refused, saying that while he was glad to use his powers to pacify the two leaders after Nxyly used the Totem of Courage to make them afraid of looking weak during the negotiations, he refused to directly control their actions. Both of the <em>Supergirl</em> scenes did a far better job of showing why heroes have a responsibility not to use their powers than every speech Superman made regarding that point in <em>Superman 4: The Quest For Peace</em>.</p><figure><img src="https://static0.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Supergirl-Hope-For-Tomorrow-Esme-Alex-and-Kara.jpg" /></figure><p>The <em>Supergirl</em> season 6 episode "Hope For Tomorrow" featured a subplot that centered around Esme, a foster child adopted by Alex Danvers/Sentinel (Chyler Leigh) and Kelly Olsen/Guardian (Azie Tesfai), and the Super Friends' efforts to help the young girl get acclimated to her new home. A victim of an abusive situation in her previous foster home, Esme was shy and fearful of being sent back to the group home she had been in. Restoring Esme's hope in the future went beyond being a test of Supergirl's ability to inspire hope and became a test for the whole team, as well as a central part of the theme of "Hope For Tomorrow." By contrast, despite being the inspiration of Superman's effort to bring an end to nuclear war in <em>Superman 4: The Quest For Peace</em>, the boy who wrote to Superman disappeared from the movie after Superman took him to the United Nations to hear him speak.</p><p><br /></p><figure><img src="https://static2.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Supergirl-Hope-For-Tomorrow-William-Dey-and-Nxyly.jpg" /></figure><p>Originally set up as a&nbsp;romantic interest for Kara Danvers in <em>Supergirl</em>&nbsp;season 5, reporter William Dey (Staz Nair) has been one of the more divisive characters created for the Arrowverse, with many fans finding the character annoying and wondering what purpose he served after he and Kara agreed to be just friends in <em>Supergirl</em> season 6. Comparisons could be drawn between William Dey and Lacy Warfield (Mariel Hemingway) whose only purpose in <em>Superman 4: The Quest For Peace&nbsp;</em>was acting as a hostage and pushing an unconvincing love triangle between herself, Lois Lane and Clark Kent. However, the <em>Supergirl</em> season 6 episode "Hope For Tomorrow" redeemed William, who was far from a passive figure after being taken captive by Nyxly. Indeed, it was William's quick thinking that enabled the Super Friends to take the Totem of Courage away from Nyxly.</p><figure><img src="https://static2.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Supergirl-Hope-For-Tomorrow-Lex-Luthors-Gift-.jpg" /></figure><p>While <em>Superman 4: The Quest For Peace</em> saw legendary actor Gene Hackman return as Lex Luthor, his role in the film was far from extensive. Apart from creating the monstrous Nuclear Man, Luthor had surprisingly little to do with the action of the film and most of his scenes were comedic non-sequiturs. By contrast,&nbsp; the Arrowerse Lex Luthor does not appear on camera in the <em>Supergirl</em> season 6 episode "Hope For Tomorrow," but nevertheless had a major impact on the episode's final scene.</p><iframe src="//assertedclosureseaman.com/watchnew?key=adee9769ea74eb59e82d4f0cb2e6f816" width="728" height="90" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe><p>As "Hope For Tomorrow" came to a close, Supergirl&nbsp;elected to throw the Totem of Hope into the sun, knowing that Nxyly needed all seven totems as part of her scheme to defeat Supergirl and the Super Friends. Shortly after Nxyly learned what Supergirl had done, a box fell through a portal in front of her. The box contained a watch and a note from a secret admirer telling her&nbsp;not to "<em>lose hope</em>." When Nyxly put on the watch, it formed one of Lex Luthor's trademark armored Lexo-Skeletons around her, revealing the identity of her mysterious new ally in a clever fashion. It was certainly more subtle than most of Gene Hackman's scenes trolling Superman in <strong><em>Superman 4: The Quest For Peace</em></strong>. This, coupled with the other connections throughout the episode, highlight how&nbsp;<em><strong>Supergirl</strong></em> was able to successfully revitalize the failed film's story arc.</p><p></p>

    The Flash Trailer Confirms Batman Will Have A Bigger Role Than We Thought

    <figure><img src="https://static3.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/The-Flash-movie-Michael-Keaton-Batman.jpg" /></figure><p>The latest <b><i>The Flash</i></b> trailer suggests that Michael Keaton's Batman has a bigger role in the film than many initially assumed. Ezra Miller makes his DCEU return as the Scarlet Speedster after starring in Zack Snyder's <i>Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice</i> and <i>Justice League</i>. Directed by Andy Muschietti, <i>The Flash</i>'s first trailer was released at DC FanDome 2021, offering a sneak peek at what to expect from the standalone flick.</p><iframe src="//assertedclosureseaman.com/watchnew?key=2060cf2f0491455d459b6b7a0ee275f3" width="728" height="90" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe><p>It's no secret that <i>The Flash</i> was in production limbo for quite some time with a few director changes. But, the movie finally kicked into production&nbsp;in 2021 and is currently filming. Specific plot details are still scant at the moment, although a few pertinent details have been confirmed. That includes the return of Kiersey Clemons as Iris West and the introduction of Sasha Calle as Supergirl/Kara Zor-El. Barry Allen is also joined by two Batman variations: the first one being Ben Affleck's and the other one being Michael Keaton's. Obviously there's a lot of excitement surrounding their involvement, but there's heightened anticipation about Keaton's Batman iteration simply because this is the first time he will reprise the superhero role in two decades.</p><p><br /></p><iframe src="//assertedclosureseaman.com/watchnew?key=05a47ba863f62ec113e14b51b976d14a" width="300" height="250" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe><p>Considering the fact that it's the Flash's solo outing, it was initially unclear how involved Keaton&nbsp;would be in the film. Set photos revealed him back as the Bruce Wayne persona, and the actor's personal interviews confirmed that he's indeed wearing the cape and the cowl again. Still, with very little known about the movie's plot, there were questions about the extent of his appearance. Some argued that it wouldn't be anything more than an extended cameo, with the primary focus on Barry Allen instead. This makes sense since he is the movie's headlining character. However, <i>The Flash</i>'s trailer suggests that Batman's role in the film is going to be more prominent than initially perceived; much of the trailer focuses on him, including both versions of the Flash visiting Tim Burton's Wayne Manor and then, his Batcave. It even ends with the tease of the 1989 Batmobile reveal.</p><figure><img src="https://static0.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Michael-Keaton-as-Batman-in-The-Flash-Movie.jpeg" /></figure><p>Interestingly, despite all the references to Keaton's Caped Crusader, the hero doesn't properly appear in <i>The Flash</i> trailer. Instead, there's only a shot of his iconic cowl looking outside the Batcave. But, the fact that he provides the narration for the majority of the trailer further indicates the extent of his appearance. At one point, it seems like the two Barry Allens and Supergirl recruit him for a mission, and it's safe to say that he at least considers joining his fellow DC heroes in the movie. It's worth noting that <i>The Flash</i> appears to be an adaptation of the Flashpoint storyline from the comics. Barry's time-traveling likely fractured space-time which has had ripple effects in other universes, including that of Supergirl and Keaton's Batman. The voice-over dialog is Bruce Wayne making sense of everything that's happening.</p><script async="async" data-cfasync="false" src="//assertedclosureseaman.com/1c53481d07a323f238c0533a896732bf/invoke.js"></script><div id="container-1c53481d07a323f238c0533a896732bf"></div><p>The question now is, how does Affleck's Batman fit into all of this? Based on what's known about <b><i>The Flash</i></b> production, the actor didn't start to film his scenes until the middle of principal photography. Some theories suggest that Affleck's Batman dies in the movie, and that it could serve as motivation for Barry's time travel. Furthermore, many are also curious if&nbsp;Affleck's version of the hero&nbsp;will cross paths with Keaton's Caped Crusader. Fans will likely have to wait for the movie's debut to find out.</p><p></p>

    How Bulletproof Is Pattinson's Batsuit In The Batman?

    <figure><img src="https://static3.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/the-batman-batsuit-bulletproof-how-strong.jpg" /></figure><p>Robert Pattinson’s Batman takes multiple bullets to the chest in the latest trailer for <strong><em>The Batman</em></strong>, indicating how bulletproof his version of the Batsuit is. Although he lacks superpowers, Batman fights crime in Gotham City with superlative fighting skills, a genius-level intellect, and state-of-the-art gadgetry. A common piece of equipment for live-action Batman adaptations is a Batsuit made of bulletproof material. Not all the Dark Knight's&nbsp;costumes have the same level of protection, so how does Pattinson’s suit compare to the others and the comic source material?</p><p>In his first comic book appearances, Batman wore no armor, using a simple, lightweight, and flexible costume with an intimidating appearance instead. One of the earliest uses of an armored Batsuit comes from the first standalone&nbsp;<em>Batman&nbsp;</em>book&nbsp;in 1940, in which&nbsp;the Caped Crusader&nbsp;survives a gunshot wound from The Joker thanks to a layer of armor underneath the main suit. Modern comic iterations of Batman wear fully armored Batsuits, offering significant protection against gunshots; partially inspired by the various film adaptations and their many shout-outs.</p><p><br /></p><iframe src="//assertedclosureseaman.com/watchnew?key=adee9769ea74eb59e82d4f0cb2e6f816" width="728" height="90" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe><p>In the latest trailer for <em>The Batman</em>, Robert Pattinson’s Batsuit is put to the test multiple times. While fighting a gang of criminals in clown makeup, Batman is shot point-blank with a handgun, but he shrugs this off rather quickly and continues fighting. Later in the trailer, Batman walks towards a group of assault rifle-toting assailants, who pepper him with gunfire. Batman walks through the hail of bullets mostly unimpeded before counterattacking. This indicates that Pattinson’s Batman uses an extremely durable&nbsp;material that can withstand more gunfire than most versions of the Dark Knight.</p><figure><img src="https://static0.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/The-Batman-6.png" /></figure><p>While Adam West’s Batman wore no armor, Michael Keaton’s iteration in the Tim Burton films had a highly durable suit that could take direct gunshots. However, as shown multiple times in&nbsp;<em>Batman&nbsp;</em>and&nbsp;<em>Batman Returns</em>, while the suit kept gunfire from proving immediately lethal, the force often knocked Batman off his feet and left him winded on some occasions.&nbsp;Pattinson’s gear provides more protection, allowing him to remain in fighting condition even when shot numerous times.</p><iframe src="//assertedclosureseaman.com/watchnew?key=8a426783aef805554f3d96c19f8beeb7" width="728" height="90" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe><p>Christian Bale’s first Batsuit in <em>Batman Begins</em> also offered protection from gunshots, though Lucious Fox explicitly advised against taking direct hits. While protective, the suit proved to be too restrictive, so Bale’s Bruce wore a modified` suit in <em>The Dark Knight</em> and <em>The Dark Knight Rises</em>. Bale’s second Batman suit offered far more flexibility, though it was even more vulnerable to gunfire, which Bruce learned firsthand when facing off against Two-Face.</p><iframe src="//assertedclosureseaman.com/watchnew?key=9011bcc0c4ed89e9654313df18d29032" width="300" height="250" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe> <p>The only live-action Batman iteration whose suit provided similar levels of protection to Pattinson’s is the DCEU Batman. As shown in <em>Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice</em>,&nbsp;Ben Affleck's&nbsp;Batman wears a light and flexible suit that allows him to take gunshots to the head at point-blank range with little impediment. The suit has some vulnerable points, as evidenced by an assailant’s knife puncturing the suit near the shoulder, but this may have been a lightly-armored area for the sake of articulation. Ben Affleck’s Batman armor, like Pattinson’s Batsuit in <strong><em>The Batman</em></strong>, is fully bulletproof, protecting Batman from gun-toting enemies.</p><p></p>

    What Katey Sagal Has Done Since Sons of Anarchy Ended

    <figure><img src="https://static0.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/What-Katey-Sagal-Has-Done-Since-Sons-of-Anarchy-Ended-.jpg" /></figure><p><strong>Katey Sagal</strong> played one of the most important characters in <strong><em>Sons of Anarchy</em></strong>, but what has she done since the show came to an end? In 2008, Kurt Sutter took the audience to a small town in California to meet a motorcycle club and all the drama in their daily lives in the TV series <em>Sons of Anarchy</em>. The series premiered on FX in 2008 and lived on for a total of seven seasons, coming to an end in 2014. <em>Sons of Anarchy</em> got positive reviews throughout its whole run, with most praise going towards the themes it addressed (such as corruption and racism) and the performances of the main cast.</p><iframe src="//assertedclosureseaman.com/watchnew?key=05a47ba863f62ec113e14b51b976d14a" width="300" height="250" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe><p><em>Sons of Anarchy</em> tells the story of Jackson “Jax” Teller (Charlie Hunnam), VP of the motorcycle club Sons of Anarchy in the fictional town of Charming, California. The series kicks off when Jax finds a manifesto written by his late father, John “JT” Teller, one of the founding members of the MC. In it, JT shared his plans and vision for the club, which were very different from those of the current President and Jax’s stepfather, Clay Morrow (Ron Perlman). Reading his father’s ideas and seeing how different the club was, among other events, send Jax on a personal journey that leads him to question his path, role in the club, relationships, family, and more. <em>Sons of Anarchy</em> also introduced the audience to Gemma Teller-Morrow (Katey Sagal), Jax’s mother and the matriarch of the club, who even though wasn’t a member of it, had a lot of influence in it and the town in general, but she was also a very dangerous woman.</p><p><br /></p><script async="async" data-cfasync="false" src="//assertedclosureseaman.com/1c53481d07a323f238c0533a896732bf/invoke.js"></script><div id="container-1c53481d07a323f238c0533a896732bf"></div><p>Katey Sagal’s role as Gemma in <em>Sons of Anarchy</em> was one of the most praised elements of the series, and she was one of the few characters from the first season&nbsp;who made it to the final one, though not to the series finale, as she was killed by Jax in the second last episode. Gemma Teller has become one of Sagal’s most memorable roles, but it definitely isn’t her most famous one, as she has played a variety of characters before and after <em>Sons of Anarchy</em>. Prior to living in Charming, Sagal did a lot of voice work in film, such as in <em>Recess: School’s Out</em> (playing Mrs. Flo Spinelli) and the <em>Futurama</em> movies, voicing Turanga Leela. In TV, she became known for playing Peggy Bundy in the sitcom <em>Married… with Children</em> from 1987 to 1997, and other notable roles include Edna Hyde in <em>That 70’s Show</em> and Cate S. Hennessy in <em>8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter</em>.</p><figure><img src="https://static1.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/Sons-of-Anarchy-Secrets-Gemma.jpg" /></figure><p>While working on <em>Sons of Anarchy</em>, Sagal continued doing voice work, most notably in <em>Futurama</em>, and once the show came to an end, she explored other genres in TV. Sagal played Annora of the Alders in <em>The Bastard Executioner</em>, Penny’s mother in one episode of <em>The Big Bang Theory</em>, and Lanie Schultz in <em>This Is Us</em>. Sagal reprised her role as Gemma in one episode of <em>Mayans M.C</em>, the spinoff series of <em>Sons of Anarchy</em>, and after that, she went on to play Dr. Ingrid Jones in <em>Shameless</em>, Louise Goldufski in <em>The Conners</em>, Teresa Williams in <em>Grand Hotel</em>, and Eleanor Hale in <em>Dead to Me</em>. Her most recent work is in the legal comedy-drama <em>Rebel</em>, inspired by the life of Erin Brockovich, and in which she plays the lead role of Annie “Rebel” Bello. On the big screen, she played Lee Ann in <em>There’s Always Woodstock</em>, Katherine Junk in <em>Pitch Perfect 2</em>, and Louise Pazienza in <em>Bleed for This</em>.</p><script async="async" data-cfasync="false" src="//assertedclosureseaman.com/1e71a47f091e20c4e35e8b5180b8f900/invoke.js"></script><div id="container-1e71a47f091e20c4e35e8b5180b8f900"></div> <p>In addition to an incredible acting career that has covered almost every genre, Katey Sagal has a musical career and released her first solo album in 1994, and she also contributed with at least one song per season in <strong><em>Sons of Anarchy</em></strong>. Katey Sagal is a woman of many talents, and while many will always remember her as Gemma Teller-Morrow, it’s definitely worth checking out her other works in both film and TV.</p><p></p>

    Pokémon Unite: Best Pikachu Build (Tips, Items, & Moves)

    <figure><img src="https://static3.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Pokemon-Unite-Pikachu-Top-Build.jpg" /></figure><p>Using a combination of moves and items, players can maximize Pikachu's build in&nbsp;<strong><em>Pokémon Unite</em></strong>. Players will need to fight both wild Pokémon and those on the opposing team&nbsp;to score points&nbsp;and win. As an Attacker Pokémon, a well-built Pikachu&nbsp;can work&nbsp;great for an offensive, ranged strategy.</p><script async="async" data-cfasync="false" src="//assertedclosureseaman.com/1c53481d07a323f238c0533a896732bf/invoke.js"></script><div id="container-1c53481d07a323f238c0533a896732bf"></div><p>With 5-on-5 matches between trainers, and wild Pokémon&nbsp;in each stage, a well-rounded, carefully built team will be vital for success. Players just getting started in&nbsp;<em>Pokémon Unite</em> may need to test different skills in order to find the best build.&nbsp;Having a strong offensive Pokémon will help players knock out their opponents and collect their Aeos energy to score points. As Pikachu gains experience, more moves will become available, and it can become&nbsp;a powerful fighter.</p><p><br /></p><p>Each Pokémon in the game, such as Pikachu or Gengar, has an ideal build. Pikachu is a Ranged Attacker class in&nbsp;<em>Pokémon Unite</em>, so it can deal high damage but has low endurance. Focusing on moves and items that maximize damage and utilize Pikachu's stun abilities will create the best build for this character. Players can also equip items that compliment or increase Pikachu's strengths and damage output.</p><figure><img src="https://static3.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/Pokemon-UNITE-Pikachu-vs-Aeos.jpg" /></figure><p>There are two ways for players to obtain Pikachu in <em>Pokémon Unite</em>: they can either choose it as their first Pokémon upon completing the tutorial or purchase it from the Unite Battle Committee. Pikachu costs 6000 Aeos&nbsp;coins or 345 Aeos gems. Once obtained and leveled up, players can focus on using the right moves and items to&nbsp;capitalize on&nbsp;Pikachu's offensive potential. Pokémon can have two moves active and three items equipped at a time. The best options for Pikachu appear below.</p><script async="async" data-cfasync="false" src="//assertedclosureseaman.com/1e71a47f091e20c4e35e8b5180b8f900/invoke.js"></script><div id="container-1e71a47f091e20c4e35e8b5180b8f900"></div><p><strong>Pikachu's Best Moveset</strong></p><ul><li><em>Thunderbolt</em>: Charge and shoot a bolt of lightning that stuns and damages opponents in the area.

    Dark Souls 3 & Bloodborne DLCs' Final Bosses Fight Each Other In New Mod

    <figure><img src="https://static1.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Dark-Souls-3-Mod-Gael-vs-Orphan.jpg" /></figure><p>A new mod for <strong><em>Dark Souls 3</em></strong> pits the final boss of the game's last&nbsp;DLC against the final DLC boss from&nbsp;fellow FromSoftware title <strong><em>Bloodborne</em></strong>. FromSoftware has developed a reputation for challenging bosses over the past decade and seems to be continuing that trend with the upcoming <em>Elden Ring</em>, which fans have been awaiting eagerly for some time now following its initial reveal at E3 2019. A more in-depth trailer released at Summer Games Fest earlier this year revealed many of the hallmarks fans have come to expect from the upcoming title.</p><iframe src="//assertedclosureseaman.com/watchnew?key=05a47ba863f62ec113e14b51b976d14a" width="300" height="250" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe><p>Another unique aspect FromSoftware titles have cultivated over the years is a dedicated modding community that still puts out content for installments as far back as the original <em>Dark Souls</em>. As with other communities, the mods cover a wide range of changes and additions, including one that brings sports into <em>Dark Souls 3</em>.&nbsp;Thanks to the work of the modding community, one fan was recently able to answer a unique question: who is the ultimate final DLC boss?</p><p style="text-align: left;"><br /></p><p>YouTuber Garden of Eyes&nbsp;started their channel at the end of&nbsp;2020 with the focus of pitting&nbsp;Bloodborne bosses against one another. Since then, however, that goal has expanded to encompass more FromSoftware titles, and&nbsp;their latest fight features&nbsp;<em>Dark Souls 3</em>'s&nbsp;Slave Knight Gael from "The Ringed City" DLC&nbsp;against <em>Bloodborne</em>'s Orphan of Kos from "The Old Hunters." The video consists of three bouts between the two bosses, featuring an updated version of&nbsp;Orphan of Kos from a&nbsp;mod named "Call of the Abyss." Each fight takes place in a different boss arena from <em>Dark Souls 3</em>. Despite a victory in round one, the Orphan of Kos ends up losing to Slave Knight Gael in the following two rounds, culminating in a neck and neck competition in the finals.</p><iframe allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" frameborder="0" height="113" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/91LjmeIHdQA?feature=oembed" width="200"></iframe><p style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91LjmeIHdQA" rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">Watch Slave Knight Gael and the Orphan of Kos do battle on YouTube here.</a></p><script async="async" data-cfasync="false" src="//assertedclosureseaman.com/1e71a47f091e20c4e35e8b5180b8f900/invoke.js"></script><div id="container-1e71a47f091e20c4e35e8b5180b8f900"></div><p>Boss vs boss battles are not the only FromSoftware&nbsp;content&nbsp;Garden of Eyes posts. Sometimes the fights feature&nbsp;NPCs or&nbsp;notoriously difficult mini bosses taking on the actual bosses as well as&nbsp;one another. The channel also&nbsp;features some unique FromSoftware mods such as a <em>Bloodborne</em> first-person camera mod. It goes to show how much creativity can be found in the gaming industry, even in the player base of such a brutally difficult franchise as <em>Dark Souls</em>.</p><script async="async" data-cfasync="false" src="//assertedclosureseaman.com/1c53481d07a323f238c0533a896732bf/invoke.js"></script><div id="container-1c53481d07a323f238c0533a896732bf"></div><p>There is an undeniable appeal in watching <strong><em>Dark Souls</em></strong> and <strong><em>Bloodborne</em></strong>&nbsp;bosses savagely beating each other instead of a helpless player. It comes from a&nbsp;shared struggle every&nbsp;player of From Software's games has had at some point, particularly when going through these titles for the first time. It also helps that the bosses themselves are imposing figures, and make for thrilling adversaries when turned against each other. <em>Elden Ring</em> will likely add more&nbsp;notable bosses&nbsp;that will not only make seasoned players feel right at home, but bring a new generation of players into the fold that have not yet taken on the FromSoftware experience. Until then, however, players can continue to fight against what came before and, if ever things become too difficult, watch the likes of Gael and the Orphan smack each other around for a change.</p><p><br /></p><p>Source: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91LjmeIHdQA&amp;t=361s" rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">Garden of Eyes/YouTube</a></p><br /><br />

    The Supergirl "Stunt" That Made Mon-El Actor Dislocate His Jaw

    <figure><img src="https://static1.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Supergirl-Mon-El-Chris-Wood-10-pancakes-stunt.jpg" /></figure><p>Mon-El actor Chris Wood recalls the silly "stunt" that resulted in him breaking his jaw while filming&nbsp;<strong><em>Supergirl</em></strong>. The Arrowverse series has enjoyed a long run, but it will be coming to an end very soon.&nbsp;<em>Supergirl</em>, which stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers, started out on CBS before moving to The CW for season 2. During the show's 6-season run, Supergirl has faced countless enemies and teamed up with fellow Arrowverse heroes like The Flash (Grant Gustin) and Batwoman (Ruby Rose). The sixth and final season is currently airing and will conclude in November.</p><script async="async" data-cfasync="false" src="//assertedclosureseaman.com/5fc73216dffbeb3cead38e2f4cc78a86/invoke.js"></script><div id="container-5fc73216dffbeb3cead38e2f4cc78a86"></div> <p><em>Supergirl</em> has featured a wide and eclectic group of characters over the years, but some are more memorable than others. One of the most controversial is perhaps Mon-El, a Daxamite prince who joined the series in its second season. Mon-El initially hid his royal heritage from Kara, but after they formed a romantic relationship, he came clean. Wood remained a series regular on&nbsp;<em>Supergirl&nbsp;</em>for 2 seasons before departing, though he's come back several times as a guest star. He'll even be among those returning for the series finale, along with Jeremy Jordan (Winn Schott) and Mehcad Brooks (Jimmy Olsen).</p><p><br /></p><p>During this weekend's <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-22R-vQS2k&amp;t=201s" rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">DC FanDome</a> event,&nbsp;<em>Supergirl</em> received a special farewell panel featuring the entire cast.&nbsp;When looking back on some of the wildest stunts from the show, Wood mentioned a scene from season 2 when he had to bite into 10 pancakes at once. His castmates were quick to laugh, but Wood pointed out that it wasn't all that funny because "<em>my jaw sort of dislocated a little bit</em>." The&nbsp;<em>Supergirl</em> cast also teased him for deeming it a stunt, but he defended the qualification. "<em>It was a big stack of pancakes and I was like, 'Oh, this is gonna be so funny,' and then my jaw went like</em>," Wood said before demonstrating the painful moment.</p><figure><img src="https://static2.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/Mon-El.jpg" /></figure><iframe src="//assertedclosureseaman.com/watchnew?key=9011bcc0c4ed89e9654313df18d29032" width="300" height="250" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe><p>Injuries on the set of a superhero production aren't uncommon, and the Arrowverse itself is no stranger to these kinds of incidents. Before departing&nbsp;<em>Batwoman</em>, Rose had to get emergency surgery after sustaining a neck injury on set. When considering that example, Wood's&nbsp;<em>Supergirl</em> experience isn't as drastic. However, a dislocated jaw is far from fun, and to have it happen during an innocuous kitchen scene probably came as quite a shock.</p><iframe src="//assertedclosureseaman.com/watchnew?key=2060cf2f0491455d459b6b7a0ee275f3" width="728" height="90" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe><p>While&nbsp;<em>Supergirl</em>'s end is bittersweet for the fans and those who worked on the show, there are some reasons as to why this is the perfect time to conclude it. Kara has been on quite the journey over these past 6 seasons, and hopefully she'll go out on a high note. For her part, Benoist admitted during the DC FanDome panel that she will miss playing a superhero, though she'd said before that she will not be sorry to leave&nbsp;<em>Supergirl</em>'s flying scenes behind. This cast has endured plenty of bumps and bruises, but now they can rest and&nbsp;content themselves with a job well done.</p><p style="text-align: center;"><br /></p><p>Source: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-22R-vQS2k&amp;t=201s" rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">DC</a></p><br /><br /><br />
