This Young Justice: Outsiders review contains spoilers.

Young Justice Season 3 Episode 22

Grading on a relative scale, last week's episode of Young Justice was a debacle. It was too busy and too rushed. This week's episode, "Antisocial," fixes almost every problem with "Unknown Factors" by dramatically narrowing its scale. It sacrifices some action in doing so, but this episode really starts thundering towards the finale and pushing plot lines to their inevitable conclusions.

The action starts out focused at the Outsider's Hollywood headquarters. Everyone is recovering from their ordeal in Granny's X-Pit, but the only one nearing death is Dick. Batman grabs Oracle, Robin, Aquaman and Miss Martian for a private conference, and Black Lightning pieces everything together. He figures out that the resignations were staged, and that the team has

Taika Waititi set to tackle animated ‘Flash Gordon’

The man who can do no wrong. Taika Waititi, has been commissioned to figure out a way to bring together an animated ‘Flash Gordon’ for Disney’s newly acquired 20th Century Fox.

The long in development property seems to have taken a new route as an animation under Disney’s ownership but at the moment, in what capacity Waititi could be taking this project forward is yet to be determined.

‘Flash Gordon’ is the hero of a space opera adventure comic strip created by and originally drawn by Alex Raymond. The strip was first published in 1934, it was inspired by and created to compete with, the already established ‘Buck Rogers’ adventure strip.

The comic strip has since been adapted for TV and movies as well as an animated series. Originally failing at the box office, the 1980 film version has

Taika Waititi to bring Flash Gordon to the big screen with animated movie

With his stop-motion Bubbles the chimpanzee project scrapped for obvious reasons, Taiki Waititi is looking to scratch the animation itch with Fox/Disney’s proposed Flash Gordon reboot.

According to Deadline, the Thor: Raganrok director will tackle the multicoloured space opera of Flash Gordon. The report suggests that he’s signing on to write and direct, but as he’s busy in post on World War II satire, Jojo Rabbit, his role might change.

With Matthew Vaughn (Kingsman) and Julius Avery (Overlord) previously linked to a Flash Gordon revival, the project could be perfectly suited to Waititi’s off-kilter sensibilities. He can embrace the overt silliness of the comic-strip, which was last transferred to the big-screen in 1980’s Queen orchestrated flop.

Flash Gordon Animated Movie Happening at Disney with Thor: Ragnarok Director

Flash Gordon Animated Movie Happening at Disney with Thor: Ragnarok Director
Taika Waititi is working with Disney to bring an animated Flash Gordon movie to the big screen. Details are scarce at the moment, but it is believed Waititi is on board to write and direct the project. Fox was reportedly trying to develop a live-action take for years, but it looks like it is finally moving forward as an animated feature now that it is in Disney's hands. Waititi is now in the post-production phase for his upcoming comedy Jojo Rabbit, which is due to hit theaters later this year.

Kingsman's Matthew Vaughn and Overlord director Julius Avery have been attached to various Flash Gordon projects over the years, but nothing obviously ever came of those iterations. Taika Waititi should be able to do something pretty interesting with the property, especially in the animated realm. The character has been in pop culture a lot recently, thanks to Seth MacFarlane's

Taika Waititi Attached to Animated ‘Flash Gordon’ Movie From Disney-Fox

Taika Waititi Attached to Animated ‘Flash Gordon’ Movie From Disney-Fox
Thor: Ragnarok” director Taika Waititi has signed onto “Flash Gordon,” as an animated feature film project from Disney-Fox. It is not known yet whether he will write, direct, or both. Deadline first broke the news.

Waititi is currently in post-production on his sure-to-be-controversial Adolf Hitler satire “Jojo Rabbit,” adapted from the novel by Christine Leunens. The story follows a Hitler youth who discovers his mother is hiding a Jewish girl in their attic, prompting him to address his nationalistic ideals through his friendship with an imaginary Hitler, played by Waititi. Starring Thomasin McKenzie, Scarlett Johansson, Sam Rockwell and Rebel Wilson, the Fox Searchlight dark comedy hits theaters on October 18.

Last fall, Deadline reported that Fox had hired “Overlord” director Julius Avery to write and direct a “Flash Gordon” movie, after having previously negotiated in 2015 with “Kingsman” director Matthew Vaughn. That was before the Disney-Fox merger, however, and the project now

New Flash Gordon Movie Coming From Taika Waititi

Mike Cecchini Jun 25, 2019

Taika Waititi is involved in a new Flash Gordon animated movie coming from 20th Century Fox and Disney.

The ongoing quest to make a new Flash Gordon movie is heading into its fourth decade. While the visual splendor of Mike Hodges' 1980 masterpiece is a tough act to follow, it hasn't stopped Hollywood from trying (repeatedly) to bring Flash, Dale, Ming, Aura, Zarkov, and the rest of the gang back to the big screen. So far, they haven't had any luck.

So now it looks like 20th Century Fox, now a studio that exists under the ever-widening Disney umbrella, will attempt a different take on a new Flash Gordon movie. This time, they're looking to bring Flash back as an animated film, with none other than Taika Waititi, whose Thor: Ragnarok took plenty of visual inspiration from Hodges' Flash Gordon movie, involved. Deadline broke the news, citing

Taika Waititi To Direct Flash Gordon Animated Movie For Disney

Taika Waititi is going back to space, as Deadline has just announced that the Thor: Ragnarok director is attached to Disney/Fox’s Flash Gordon animated feature film. Initial reports are that he’s set to write and helm, with his talents being a perfect fit for the project after the colorful retro-futurism he brought to Ragnarok helped make it such a hit.

This version of Flash Gordon has been in development for some time, with Kingsman‘s Matthew Vaughn and Overlord‘s Julius Avery attached to the project at various points. Now, however, Waititi is on board and from what we understand, it’ll be an origin story for the character, meaning it’ll most likely take more inspiration from Alex Raymond’s classic 1930s comics than the (awesome) 1980 movie adaptation.

The comics begin with an arc in which Earth is threatened with collision by the planet Mongo, leading scientist Dr.

Taika Waititi is Going To Help Develop an Animated Flash Gordon Film For Fox/Disney!

I’ve got some super exciting Flash Gordon movie news to share with you! Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi is said to be taking “a crack” at a Flash Gordon animated film!

Deadline says that Waititi is signing on to write and direct the film, but at this point his reps are saying that “it’s too early to gauge exactly what his role would be.” But, this is a project that he is helping develop and I would love it if he actually came on board to write and direct it!

I’ve always thought that Flash Gordon would make for an awesome sci-fi fantasy animated film, so the fact that this is the direction that Fox/Disney is looking to take the project is exciting! The film has been in development for years and Kingsman director Matthew Vaughn and Overlord director Julius Avery have been the most recent

Taika Waititi To “Crack” ‘Flash Gordon’ As Fox/Disney Animated Film

  • Deadline
Taika Waititi To “Crack” ‘Flash Gordon’ As Fox/Disney Animated Film
Exclusive: Fox/Disney has attached Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi to “crack” Flash Gordon, as an animated feature film.

I had heard that the inventive filmmaker Waititi was signing on to write and direct, but his camp indicates it’s too early to gauge exactly what his role would be. The director is in post on Jojo Rabbit, his scripted adaptation of the Christine Leunens novel, a satire in which a young boy in Hitler’s army discovers that his mother is hiding a Jewish girl from the Nazis. Despite the ruthless nationalism in the air, the youth is torn and one of this voices guiding him is his idiot imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler — Waititi plays him.

Waititi recently extricated himself from another animated film, Bubbles, the Netflix stop motion project. Even though the film went in a $20 million package after ferocious bidding during the 2017 Cannes market for a Black List script by Isaac Adamson,

Elementary Season 7 Episode 4 Review: Red Light, Green Light

We're still getting to the new normal.

The terrorist cell which first came to light on Elementary Season 7 Episode 2 was a natural suspect in a bombing on Elementary Season 7 Episode 4.

But no, as this episode directed by Jonny Lee Miller soon proved.

As a matter of fact, red herrings were stinking up the joint.

It was terrorists! It was Salvadoran gang members! It was an all-powerful hacker!

Until, finally, it was a much more pedestrian greedy businessman in the suburbs.

Still, Sherlock, Joan, and Marcus had to wade through a lot of suspects to get there.

But first, let's applaud Captain Gregson being awake and closer to getting out of the hospital.

It was heartwarming to watch Sherlock and Gregson make up and agree to look ahead, not back.

‘Crawl’ Trailer: Alexandre Aja’s New Film Is A Disaster Film With A Healthy Dose Of Horror

Paramount Pictures has delivered a mixed bag of horrors over the past year or so, with some being innovative and others standard-issue. “Overlord” and “Pet Sematary” are decidedly mixed bags. Regrettably, “The Cloverfield Paradox” is mired in its own monstrosity at the bottom of the list. But none were as inspired as “A Quiet Place” though, a truly fresh offering by John Krasinski that sits as the best of the bunch.

Clint Eastwood's Ballad of Richard Jewell Cast and Details

Joseph Baxter Jun 18, 2019

Fact-based drama The Ballad of Richard Jewell appears to be Clint Eastwood’s next directorial effort.

Clint Eastwood may be pushing 90 years old (he turned 89 on May 31), but he’s still got plenty of creative fuel in his proverbial tank; a notion supported by the fact that he’s nabbed his next directorial effort, The Ballad of Richard Jewell, which will focus on the security guard wrongfully accused of attempting to bomb the 1996 Olympic Games.

The onscreen legend and Oscar-winning director, Eastwood, will occupy the director’s chair for the Disney/Fox fact-based drama, The Ballad of Richard Jewell, reported Deadline. The film, based on an article of the same name from Vanity Fair, would see Eastwood work off a script by Billy Ray, who worked on action-horror film Overlord, Tom Hanks-headlined Captain Phillips, film franchise launcher The Hunger Games and served as writer and credited
