The world was shocked after the sudden announcement that the recently-merged Warner Bros. Discovery would be canceling the nearly complete Batgirl film directed by Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) Ms. Marvel directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, and starring Leslie Grace as the titular Batgirl/Barbara Gordon. Amid the studio, Warner Bros. Discovery coming under fire from now ex-cast and crew alike, the Batgirl lead actress has decided to speak out about the cancelation — and convey her emotions through the power of song.

Fans would have been treated to a fun new DC superhero film with Grace at the helm alongside J.K. Simmons as father and Gotham City Police Department (GCPD) Commissioner Gordon, AKA James Gordon AKA Jim Gordon, as well as Michael Keaton properly returning to his iconic role as Batman/Bruce Wayne for the first time in years.

Unfortunately, we’ve split from that particular timeline, and the Warner Bros. Discovery Batgirl film will likely never be seen by the public.

It still remained a positive experience for the Barbara Gordon actress Leslie Grace, however, despite how saddening the news must have been. Taking to Twitter, the Batgirl star first posted a picture of herself in the Batgirl outfit and accompanied it with a message speaking about the pride and love and feels for the “incredible cast and tireless crew”.

“Querida familia!” (Dear family!) the actress with Dominican roots tweeted:

Querida familia! On the heels of the recent news about our movie “Batgirl,” I am proud of the love, hard work and intention all of our incredible cast and tireless crew put into this film over 7 months in Scotland.

Grace then posted a heartbreaking video in that same thread, which shows footage of her singing a quiet, acapella rendition of the Dolly Parton and Whitney Houston hit “I Will Always Love You”, as she zipped herself up into the Batgirl suit:

I feel blessed to have worked among absolute greats and forged relationships for a lifetime in the process! To every Batgirl fan – THANK YOU for the love and belief, allowing me to take on the cape and become, as Babs said best, “my own damn hero!”
#Batgirl for life! 🦇

In the tweet accompanying the video, she graciously thanks the fans for all the “love and belief”, and iterates how “blessed” she feels to have “worked among absolute greats and forged relationships for a lifetime in the process”. Grace then quotes Barbara Gordon AKA Batgirl, affectionately known as “Babs”, and says that taking on the cape allowed her to become “my own damn hero!”.

The lyrics of the song definitely hit home too, as the talented Grace sings:

Bittersweet memories
That is all I’m taking with me
So goodbye, please don’t cry
We both know I’m not what you need
And I will always love you

Leslie Grace is definitely an actor with pipes, who is known for having starred in Jon M. Chu and Lin-Manuel Miranda’s In the Heights (2021), a movie musical inspired by the 2008 Tony Award-winning Broadway musical of the same name.

Some upset fans replied to Grace’s post, expressing their support and love for the once-Barbara Gordon.

Twitter user @amurkymuc said (and almost 300 other fans agreed):

WE LOVE YOU LESLIE! YOU WILL FOREVER BE OUR BATGIRL!

And some others took the chance to remind fans of the #ReleaseBatgirl movement which gained some traction over the anti-Warner Bros. Discovery furor, @TheBrennaissance quote tweeting a link to the petition:

A petition to #ReleaseBatgirl is available

It’s a definite shame that Warner Bros. Discovery has decided to so unceremoniously shelve what could have been a great addition to the DC canon of superhero films.

But perhaps one day the stars will align and we will see Leslie Grace in the role of Batgirl once again.

How do you feel about this Batgirl cancelation? Would you have watched the movie? Comment down below!

Warner Bros. Discovery owns the wildly popular DC Extended Universe (DCEU) and the DC superhero film Justice League, which consists of Superman/Clark Kent (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman/Diana Prince (Gal Gadot), Batman/Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck), Aquaman/Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa), The Flash/ (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg/Victor Stone (Ray Fisher). 

The unreleased Batgirl is a DC film directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah would have followed the exploits of Leslie Grace’s Barbara Gordon, daughter of Commissioner Gordon of the Gotham City Police Department (GCPD), in a more domestic role as James “Jim” Gordon (J. K. Simmons).

Jacob Scipio would have played Anthony Bressi, mob boss in Gotham City, and Brendan Fraser would have been Ted Carson / Firefly, a pyromaniac and sociopathic veteran.

An alternate-DC universe Batman AKA Gotham City elite and wealthy socialite Bruce Wayne is played by Michael Keaton, returning to his iconic role.

After several years of fans rallying together, Warner Bros. allowed Snyder to get his version of the Justice League to be seen. The movie even won some Oscars, and now Warner Brothers don’t consider the movie to be part of DC history.

Snyder’s vision for the DC universe was definitely controversial. Fans were not fond of Ben Affleck’s Batman or even Henry Cavill’s Superman, but some fans have changed their minds about how they feel about Snyder’s work.

Sadly, it was too late as Warner Bros. has shifted away from the Snyderverse and is even going to retcon the projects with The Flash (2023). Then the Discovery merger happened, and fans were unsure how DC movies would go forward.

At the moment, Warner Bros. has canceled Batgirl and potentially several other projects. They also might lay off 70% of HBO Max employees and shift some release dates for some of the upcoming DCEU projects.

When Leslie Iwerks asked for licensed clips of Zack Snyder’s Justice League for a new documentary on DC’s history, Warner Bros. refused to hand over the clips because the movie was not the real Justice League. Rolling Stone shared that Iwerks was unable to get the clips due to the new leadership wanting to deny that the movie existed:

“Leslie Iwerks recently asked to license clips from the 2021 Justice League for a film on the history of DC and was told there is only one Justice League: the 2017 incarnation.”

After hearing that Ben Affleck will appear in Aquaman 2, fans hoped that Snyder’s vision might be restored, but this will sadly not be the case. Michael Keaton was originally in the movie, but fans were confused to see the character appear, so Affleck must’ve been asked to film a few scenes since Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom (2023) will release before The Flash (2023) when Affleck’s Batman is erased.

This isn’t good for DC fans as Warner Bros. hasn’t changed their stance despite getting new leadership and hopefully, the new leadership finds a way to make the DCEU become something more than a hot mess after ditching Snyder.

Fans will have to wait and see, but it’s possible that leaving Zack Snyder’s vision might be the best move or potentially the one decision that will continue to hurt Warner Brothers.

Fans were shocked to hear that Leslie Grace’s Batgirl was canceled and that the project was being used as a tax write-off for Warner Brothers. After the Discovery merger, Warner Bros. changed its priorities leaving HBO Max to face some profound changes.

The company reportedly plans to cut 70% of the staff and potentially cut other DC projects slated for the streaming platform. This is because the new leadership wants Warner Bros. to have more projects onto their platform Discovery Plus which makes sense.

With all of these changes, fans are unsure about what will happen next to DC, but The Hollywood Reporter claims that the new leadership is discussing whether or not to change the release dates for Shazam: Fury of the Gods (2022) and Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom (2023). Surprisingly, Amber Heard still has a role in Aquaman 2, so the movie may be delayed again due to the amount of VFX work.

These changes might push the two projects up or possibly delay them. At the moment, it’s unclear, but Warner Bros. hasn’t had a great time competing with the Marvel Cinematic Universe due to all the changes they have made.

After ditching Zack Snyder, the DCEU has been unsure how to move forward except with some loosely interconnected moments. Nothing so far has been on the same level as the MCU, but DC’s anthology films like The Batman (2022) or Joker (2019) have been the pillars of DC’s success recently.

If DC can get that same success for the DCEU, then perhaps Warner Bros. could compete with Disney, but until then, fans are left wondering what will happen to their character because they are most likely to end up being erased from the DCEU instead of dying.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom releases in theaters on March 17, 2023.

Shazam: Fury of the Gods releases on December 21, 2022.

Fans are excited to see Shazam 2 and Aquaman 2, but another delay might not be the best call since DC has barely released any movies in the past few years but have constantly been delaying their projects.

Do you think Shazam 2 and Aquaman 2 will be delayed? Let us know what you think!

Lady Gaga has confirmed her role alongside Academy Award Winner Joaquin Phoenix in the highly anticipated Joker (2019) sequel Joker: Folie à Deux (2024) with a teaser posted to her verified Twitter account.

The musical 18-second clip features the dancing silhouettes of Lady Gaga and Joaquin Phoenix to the tune of “Cheek to Cheek,” which Gaga famously covered with legendary singer Tony Bennett, before it closes out with an ominous Joker chuckle.

Prior to Gaga’s post, there were reports that she was in early talks to star in the sequel as the infamous Harley Quinn, Joker’s complicated love interest. Talk about a “Bad Romance.” While her Tweet doesn’t inform viewers of the specifics of her role, it is the first confirmation fans have received that she has officially signed onto the project.

Here’s what we know about Joker: Folie à Deux so far.

Joaquin Phoenix will reprise the dark role of Joker/Arthur Fleck, which earned him the Academy Award for Best Actor In a Leading Role in 2020. Director Todd Phillips is also on board for the sequel.

It has been reported that much of the filming will take place in Arkham Asylum following the shocking Joker ending that saw Phoenix’s character commit murder on live television.

A lot of ‘JOKER 2’ will take place in Arkham Asylum.

(Source: https://thewrap.com/joker-sequel-folie-a-deux-slated-for-fall-2024-release/…)

Further reports suggest that Joker: Folie à Deux will be a musical and Gaga’s casting only adds fuel to that fire. Her musical capacity in the film is yet to be announced, but one could assume her contribution will be significant, especially having worked with Todd Phillips in the past on the award-winning project A Star Is Born (2018).

The film has a release date of October 4, 2024, and if it is as successful as its predecessor, the sequel could see more than 1 billion box office dollars during its run according to the Joker statistics recorded by Box Office Mojo.

More about the original Joker film as reported by Variety:

Phillips’ original “Joker” film reframed the iconic Batman villain into an anti-hero character study about a struggling comedian and part-time clown performer named Arthur Fleck who becomes a folk hero in Gotham City after he lashes out in acts of shocking violence. 

The film saw an impressive awards season, earning multiple Academy Awards, British Academy Film Awards, Critics Choice Awards, Golden Globe Awards, Satellite Awards, and many more.

J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings contains countless heroes and villains, many of which fans don’t even realize exist. From the revolutionary Rings trilogy by Peter Jackson to Tolkien’s classic novels, every Middle Earth fan wants to know the most about their favorite character, especially when they’re often considered the true “hero” of Tolkien’s universe.

Undoubtely the heart and soul of much of the Fellowship and popular enough to include in the live-action adaptations of The Hobbit, Legolas Greenleaf (Orlando Bloom) is a force not to be reckoned with.

As the son of the Elvenking of Mirkwood (Thranduil in live-action), Legolas lives on as one of the most significant figures in Middle Earth’s Third Age.

Though little is revealed about the wood elf in the films, Legolas’ journey alongside Gimli (John Rhys-Davies) doesn’t end with the Battle of the One Ring at Mordor.

Though The Rings of Power is set to change the parameters of Middle Earth and future Rings content, here’s how Legolas could inspire a series of his own.

The Life of Legolas

Lord of the Rings wiki writes:

Legolas was a Sindar Elf who was part of the Fellowship of the Ring in the Third Age. Son of the Elvenking Thranduil of Mirkwood, Legolas was Mirkwood’s prince, a messenger, and a master archer. With his keen eyesight, sensitive hearing, and excellent bowmanship, Legolas was valuable to the Fellowship in their journey across Middle-earth. He was well-known for becoming friends with the Dwarf Gimli, despite their long-held differences.

Legolas was the only son of Thranduil, King of the Elves of Northern Mirkwood. His exact date of birth and mother’s name are unknown.

Legolas came to the Council of Elrond in Rivendell, the great meeting held by the Elf lord Elrond, as a messenger from his father to discuss the escape of Gollum. When the council was choosing the “Nine Walkers” to pit against the “Nine Riders,” Legolas volunteered to represent the Elves, and to become one of the members of the Fellowship that would set out to destroy the One Ring.

Legolas’ expertise in bowmanship and hunting proved an indisposable asset to the elf upon the Fellowship’s departure from Rivendell, something that would save Aragorn, Samwise Gamgee, Frodo Baggins, and Gandalf the Grey countless times:

During their journey, Legolas would stay at the rear due to his keen eyes. On Caradhras, Legolas was able to run nimbly over the snow, leaving behind little imprint, whereas his companions struggled to plough through it. When Gandalf gave his counsel, Legolas voted against passing through Moria. In the morning, the Fellowship was waylaid by Wargs and Legolas fought in their defence. After the battle, he picked up his arrows, save one which was damaged.

Gimli quarreled with him in Moria (which was not unexpected considering the ancient quarrel between Elves and Dwarves) – Legolas’ father Thranduil had once imprisoned Gimli’s father, Glóin.

Soon enough, Gimli and Legolas’ opinions toward one another softened, leading to a strong friendship formed by the end of the One Ring War:

He and Gimli became friends, however, when Gimli greeted the Elf, Lady Galadriel, with gentle words. Before the Fellowship departed from Lothlórien, Legolas was given a new Galadhrim longbow. While the Fellowship was travelling over the River Anduin, he used his new bow to shoot an overhead Nazgûl on a Fellbeast with one masterful shot in the dark.

In the Battle of the Hornburg, Legolas and Gimli engaged in an Orc-slaying contest[10] that Gimli won (the score being 42 to 43, respectively), though Legolas was not jealous, stating, “You have passed my score by one but I do not grudge you the game, so glad am I to see you on your legs.”

After the War

Upon the destruction of Sauron at Mount Doom, Legolas and Gimli reclaimed the fallen lands of Middle Earth side by side:

After the destruction of the One Ring and of Sauron, Legolas stayed for the coronation of Aragorn and his marriage to Arwen. Later, he and Gimli travelled together to Helm’s Deep, visiting the Glittering Caves, and then traveled through Fangorn Forest. Eventually, Legolas came to Ithilien with some of his people, with his father’s leave, to live out his remaining time in Middle-earth helping to restore the woodlands that had been war-torn. After Aragorn’s death, Legolas made a ship in Ithilien and left Middle-earth to go over the sea. His strong friendship with Gimli prompted Legolas to invite him to accompany him to the Undying Lands; making him the first and only Dwarf to do so. He was never seen again in Middle-earth.

With so much of Legolas’ life still untold, a new streaming series focused on the back half of Gimli and the elf’s friendship could expand the tales of Middle Earth like never before.

Showcasing the dynamic duo snuffing out the remaining forces of Sauron from Mirkwood and other areas, the show could relay vital information about the retiring of the Fellowship that wasn’t present in The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King (2003) and more.

This Legolas series could turn into a whole franchise by allowing fans to see the marriage of Arwen and King Aragorn of Gondor.

With Orlando Bloom still having the agility of his younger self from The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Rings (2001), it would be a landmark move to have an original Fellowship member return for a new adventure.

More about The Rings of Power

Taking place in the episodic Second Age of Middle Earth, Amazon’s The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power chronicles the construction of the One Ring worn by dark lord Sauron under Mount Doom:

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky, Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone, Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die, One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne in the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

The near $1 billion series is set to focus on the rise of the Dark Lord Sauron, the historic alliance between Elves and Men (that transcended the entire franchise), the island of Númenor/Westernesse, as well as a look into Khazad‐dûm/Moria before the dwarven kingdom fell to hoards of goblins and the deadly Balrog/Durin’s Bane.

However, unfortunately, you won’t be seeing any of the legendary hobbit Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood), Bilbo Baggins (Sir Ian Holm), Samwise Gamgee (Sean Astin), Merry Brandybuck (Dominic Monaghan), Pippen Took (Billy Boyd), Legolas (Orlando Bloom), Gandalf the White (Sir Ian McKellen), Saruman (Sir Christopher Lee), Gollum (Andy Serkis), and more in Rings of Power.

Dark Lord Sauron is set to have a massive role in The Rings of Power. Still, the series features a relatively unknown cast of lead and supporting actors that are set to play some of the most formative names in Elrond (Robert Aramayo), Lady Galadriel of Lothlórien (Morfydd Clark), and Prince Durin IV (Owain Arthur), replacing Cate Blanchett and Hugo Weaving.

New characters like Dwarven Princess Disa (Sophia Nomvete), silvan elf Arondir (Ismael Cruz Córdova), and Cole (Maxim Baldry) have been created specifically for the series.

Showrunner Patrick McKay and writer JD Payne pen the tentative series with directors JA Bayona and Wayne Che Yip leading the Rings show set to debut on September 2, 2022.

The DC Universe within Warner Bros. Discovery is on fire after news of Batgirl, a completed film, being canceled and shelved for a tax write-off. Now, a Superman spinoff DC movie is likely to see the light of day.

Supergirl is undoubtedly getting the boot after Batgirl, a $90 feature film in which Warner Bros. lost faith, was deleted from the superhero release schedule and vaulted within Warner Media.

Saving only a reported $15-20 million, Warner Bros. is looking to cut costs across all of its services and platforms, including the mass layoff of up to 70% of its creative development staff at HBO Max.

Though HBO Max and the DCEU have recently had a rebound amongst fans with new content, the world of Batman and Clark Kent is going dark again:

The ‘SUPERGIRL’ movie is unlikely to move forward.

Nonetheless, Warner Bros. still has Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom (2023) with Ben Affleck’s Batman, Shazam!: Fury of the Gods (2022), and The Flash (2023) still on the table, with Black Adam (2022) releasing this fall.

With Ezra Miller’s tumultuous time in the spotlight of social media and pop culture, Warner Bros. reportedly has no plans to delay or cancel Miller’s solo superhero movie.

One fan shares:

Batgirl would have made 350-400 million minimum with proper marketing. This doesn’t make any sense.

With the future of the DC Universe unknown, it’s clear that a massive creative overhaul is taking place at Warner Bros. following their landmark merger with Discovery.

How Supergirl would tie into the world of Zack Snyder and Henry Cavill’s respective Superman was unclear, but fans hoped that Man of Steel II could introduce the cousin of Kal-El rather than a solo film. Now, both are undoubtely off the table.

Batgirl was set to star Leslie Grace, Brendan Fraser, J.K. Simmons, Ivory Aquino, and Michael Keaton.

While it’s unclear what the future holds for Zack Snyder’s proposed Justice League II and Justice League III, as well as the connection of the DCEU with Wonder Woman 3, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom (2023), The Flash, Black Adam (2022), and Shazan: Fury of the Gods (2023), the confirmation of Henry Cavill finally reprising his role of Superman after six years for a Man of Steel II and even Man of Steel III, would elevate WarnerMedia’s Hollywood take on superheroes to a whole new level, potentially giving Marvel Studios a run for their money!

At a time when Marvel, DC, and Star Wars dominate headlines, it can be difficult to keep track of other major franchises. In this case, we’re talking about Scream — the hugely popular “meta” slasher series that first started way back in 1996.

It would be a lie to suggest that Scream hasn’t been making headlines of its own lately, though, but it’s easy to get distracted by huge Marvel announcements, or how the summer blockbusters are performing at the box office.

As such, we’ve decided to put all the Scream 6 (2023) news in one place. So here’s everything you need to know about what might just be your next “favorite scary movie”…

Many characters who were first introduced in Scream (2022) will be returning — Tara Carpenter (Jenna Ortega), Sam Carpenter (Melissa Barrera), Mindy Meeks (Jasmin Savoy Brown), and Chad Meeks (Mason Gooding).

Returning fan-favorite characters so far include Kirby Reed (Hayden Panettiere), who appeared in Scream 4 (2011), and Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox), who has had a major role in all five Scream movies to date.

Newcomers to Scream 6 are Dermot Mulroney, Henry Czerny, Tony Revolori, Jack Champion, Devyn Nekoda, Liana Liberato, Josh Segarra, and Samara Weaving, all in undisclosed roles.

However, Dermot Mulroney recently revealed to Screen Rant that he will be playing a police officer whose daughter is one of the Ghostface killer’s victims. He said:

“Yeah, I play a cop, so finally they’re asking me to play cops here and there, this is one of them. I guess I shouldn’t say that my daughter is one of the victims, but I don’t have to describe how or in what way, so that’s what draws me into the story is strong family ties.”

Scream 6 will be directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, who directed Scream (2022), and black comedy-horror Ready Or Not (2019), which also stars Samara Weaving.

“What I will say is that Ghostface gets a lot more intimidating. I just read part of the script and it gets more and more gory, and I think that this is probably the most aggressive and violent version of Ghostface we’ve ever seen.”

The Hollywood Reporter revealed in June that Scream 6 “continues with the four survivors of the Ghostface killings as they leave Woodsboro behind and start a fresh chapter.”

It has also been confirmed that Scream 6 will take place in New York City, which will be the third time the franchise has departed its Woodsboro roots. Scream 2 (1997) takes place in Ohio, and Scream 3 (2000) is set in Hollywood.

Fans know that Joker 2 will release in theaters on October 4, 2024 meaning that the movie is still a few years out. The title, Joker: Folie a Deux, roughly means “shared madness,” implying that the movie might have more than one Joker.

Earlier reports claimed the movie would be a musical and bring Lady Gaga in as Harley Quinn. This news shocked fans who loved the first movie and didn’t know what Warner Bros. was thinking. Due to the tremendous success of the first movie, Warner Brothers must have a lot of faith in the script Todd Phillips wrote since they aren’t one to throw away one of their most profitable franchises.

With the DCEU in disarray, DC’s anthology movies are what keep fans going to the theaters. At the moment, Matt Reeves’ The Batman (2022) and Joker (2019) are two of the most successful DC movies in the past few years.

This might change after The Flash (2023), but DC seems unsure how to handle their characters and franchises after subtly retconning or constantly removing characters.

According to The Wrap, some insider claims that most of the movie will be set in Arkham Asylum:

According to an insider with knowledge of the project, a lot of the “Joker” sequel takes place inside Arkham Asylum.

If this is true, it will make sense for Joker to meet Harley Quinn and perhaps fall into madness which is why some scenes will turn the movie into a musical as Arthur goes further into madness.

This would be an interesting turn for the character and let fans see a different approach without ruining what the first movie sets up.

HBO is owned by Warner Bros, which Discovery now owns. Following the landmark acquisition of Warner Bros. media, Discovery has taken significant steps to redirect the Hollywood conglomerate’s creative direction and financial stability.

From the addition of executive veteran Alan Horn joining Warner Bros. as a principal consultant to the shake-up cancellation of the $90 million Batgirl and more, HBO Max is reportedly expecting to lay off up to 70% of its development staff:

HBO Max is expected to layoff around 70% of their development staff.

“Sounds like they’re not doing HBO Max scripted shows anymore with HBO taking over, so less scripted shows overall,” says one company insider.

On top of that, HBO Max is reportedly removing countless streaming series and movies performing poorly on the platform ahead of a merger with Discovery+, a streaming platform dedicated to all things HGTV, Discovery Channel, and more.

Now, with so much turmoil taking over the public image of Warner Bros., the internet is losing faith in the studio altogether:

HBO Max is expected to layoff around 70% of their development staff. It sounds like this is the end of original HBO Max shows with HBO taking over.

Another fan writes:

Warner Bros. Discovery is about to cancel TV shows mid-season. I’m gonna be streaming the next episode of PLL: Original Sin and it’ll cut to a black screen with text: “This show is not the direction we want our brand to go in. We’ve deleted the show from HBO Max.”

It’s unclear exactly why Discovery is taking these massive leaps to completely redefine HBO Max, which was recently reported as the highest-rated streaming service (beating out Disney+, Netflix, and Hulu).

Given that HBO Max is the home of the DCEU and DC film universe, as well as the hub for The Lord of the Rings franchise, it’s possible that these titles could be disappearing or being significantly cut back due to recent tax write-off efforts:

A long list of more original movies & TV shows will be removed from HBO Max soon. Content being targeted for removal includes TV shows & movies that are not performing well but have an opportunity for a partial tax write off.

Now that Amazon Video is the new beacon for fresh Rings content, with The Rings of Power hitting the streaming service on September 2, it’s only a matter of time until Amazon gains the streaming and distribution rights to Tolkien’s work for their platform, bringing Peter Jackson’s trilogies to its service.

While The Lord of the Rings is increasingly popular for HBO Max, could the rights to the films be too expensive for the platform cutting costs at all measures? While none of these theories are confirmed, it never hurts to speculate.

With Discover taking over Warner Bros., it’s implied that HBO Max could turn into a tab on Discovery+, rather than having its dedicated streaming platform for new series such as House of the Dragon and more.

Nonetheless, something significant is happening behind the scenes at Warner Bros. Discovery. Something that not every fan and working professional is ready for.

More about The Rings of Power

Taking place in the episodic Second Age of Middle Earth, Amazon’s The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power chronicles the construction of the One Ring worn by dark lord Sauron under Mount Doom:

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky, Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone, Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die, One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne in the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

The near $1 billion series is set to focus on the rise of the Dark Lord Sauron, the historic alliance between Elves and Men (that transcended the entire franchise), the island of Númenor/Westernesse, as well as a look into Khazad‐dûm/Moria before the dwarven kingdom fell to hoards of goblins and the deadly Balrog/Durin’s Bane.

However, unfortunately, you won’t be seeing any of the legendary hobbit Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood), Bilbo Baggins (Sir Ian Holm), Samwise Gamgee (Sean Astin), Merry Brandybuck (Dominic Monaghan), Pippen Took (Billy Boyd), Legolas (Orlando Bloom), Gandalf the White (Sir Ian McKellen), Saruman (Sir Christopher Lee), Gollum (Andy Serkis), and more in Rings of Power.

Johnny Depp, 58, recently sued his ex-wife, Amber Heard, 35, for defamation after she wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post, where she referred to herself as a “public figure representing domestic abuse.”

Ms. Heard countersued Mr. Depp, claiming that he “defamed her when his former lawyer released statements saying her allegations of abuse were a hoax.”

The trial took place in a courtroom located in Fairfax, Virginia.

Related: Juror Speaks Out, Everything Amber Heard Said During Trial “Came Off Like Bullsh*t”

On Wednesday, June 1, the jury found Ms. Heard defamed Mr. Depp by publicly accusing him of domestic abuse. The jury found that Mr. Depp proved Ms. Heard lied about her allegations.

In Heard’s countersuit against Depp, the jury found that Depp’s former attorney, Adam Waldman, publicly defamed her. Heard now owes Depp $15 million. Depp owes Heard $2 million in compensatory damages.

Now that the trial has ended, Depp is focusing on his career, which includes releasing new music with Jeff Beck, whom he has been on tour with since the defamation trial ended.

Amber Heard is still focusing on the trial and verdict, even going as far as filing an appeal to overturn the verdict.

And now, court documents reveal that Amber Heard‘s legal team claimed that Johnny Depp has erectile dysfunction, which may have factored into his reported bottle rape of his ex-wife.

Fox News Digital reported that court documents, which have just been unsealed, claim that “Heard’s team raised the impotence allegation in a March 28 motion detailing often embarrassing evidence they wanted to present at the live-streamed defamation trial in Virginia that began the following month.”

Per the court documents, “Though Mr. Depp would rather not disclose his erectile dysfunction condition, such condition absolutely is relevant to sexual violence, including Mr. Depp’s anger and use of a bottle to rape Amber Heard,” wrote Elaine Bredehoft, Heard’s lead attorney.

During the trial, Amber Heard testified at trial that in 2015, Depp had penetrated her with a Maker’s Mark bottle in a drug-fueled rage in Australia, where he was on location filming the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

“I thought he was punching me. I felt this pressure. I felt this pressure on my pubic bone,” Heard said in the Fairfax County Circuit Court in Virginia. “I didn’t know if the bottle he had inside me was broken.”

“Mr Depp’s erectile dysfunction makes it more probable that Mr. Depp would be angry or agitated in encounters with Amber Heard, and that he would resort to a bottle,” Bredehoft wrote in the motion.

Heard did not seek medical treatment after the alleged assault.
