Petition for Morbius to be reissued a third time crosses 25,000 signatures

Sony recently attempted to capitalize on the meme culture that emerged around “Morbius” by re-releasing the film in theaters, an experiment that failed spectacularly. As a result, a prankster created a petition on Change.org urging the studio to release the film theatrically for a third time, and (lord, help us) the petition has already surpassed 25,000 signatures. The rather hilarious petition reads:

“This weekend, enthusiastic fans from all over the world had the chance to see Morbius in theaters again. Although it was a great opportunity, there was a problem: we were all busy this weekend. Some some of us were washing our hair, others we had to study, and some of us had already made other plans. Please don’t interpret this as disinterest on our part. If you should Morbius be released in theaters again, let us know, and we’ll be there for you unless something happens.

There’s almost no chance Sony is dumb enough to do it again. Almost.

James Gunn appears to be teasing a DC project tied to The Suicide Squad

Well, well, if it isn’t ‘The Suicide Squad’ director James Gunn who plays with the fans a bit. The filmmaker has already brought a very successful spin-off to life with ‘Peacemaker’ and he has confirmed that other projects are in development. However, the details remained vague and he even poured some cold water on this alleged Amanda Waller show. In this case, he seems to be referring to something involving Peter Capaldi’s The Thinker. Again, the image has absolutely nothing to do with what Gunn and Warner Bros. have in development. Time will tell us.

Marc Guggenheim provides update on HBO Max show Green Lantern

However, during a recent appearance on the “Hall of Justice” podcast, writer Marc Guggenheim provided an update on the state of affairs. Apparently it’s moving forward, as he’s currently working on the season finale.

“First of all, I think it’s important to note that I’m not directing this show. So I have even less license than usual to talk about it… I wish I could talk about it. That’s really, really cool. It’s obviously very near and dear to my heart… I can say that I’m — it’s funny, I’m working today, actually, on the outline of the season finale.”

So there we have it. No word yet on a release date, but somewhere in 2023 seems likely at this point.
