Robert Kirkman’s next comic book already has a movie deal. Our first fleeting look at whatever the hell Chris Nolan’s Tenet is has appeared. Alan Tudyk gets his alien on in a first look at Resident Alien. Plus, Batwoman and Supergirl are the world’s finest, and Shaggy goes ultra instinct for Scoob. May the spoilers be with you, always!
Coyote vs. Acme
Variety reports Dave Green (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows) will direct a hybrid live-action/animation Wile E. Coyote movie for Warner Bros. Although the trade doesn’t have much in the way of details, the title at least seems to suggest some sort of antagonistic faceoff between the Roadrunner-hating Wile. E. and the company that provides most of the slap-dash (and often explosive) technology behind his attempts to capture said Roadrunner.
Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn
Birds of Prey has been officially rated R by the U.S. MPAA for “strong violence and language throughout, and some sexual and drug material.” This is equivalent to an MA15+ rating in Australia. Surprise? [Film Ratings]
According to Deadline, Lee Daniels (The Butler) is attached to direct a film adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s upcoming superhero comic book series, Stealth, for Universal Pictures. The story concerns the ageing, Detroit-based hero of the film’s title becoming increasingly reckless during his battle with Alzheimer’s.

A new image from Scoob references Ultra Instinct Shaggy, because while 2019 may be gasping its dying breaths, the shitposting cannot, and arguably will not, stop.

A heartbroken man tells his ex, “ever since you left, some kind of thing has been coming out of the woods every night” in the trailer for After Midnight, a monster movie about breaking up from director Jeremy Gardner.
We also have a trailer for The Nightshifter, a Brazilian horror film coming to VOD next month about a morgue attendant who can speak to the dead.
Deadline reports Danica Curcic (The Mist) will star in Netflix’s upcoming Danish supernatural thriller, Equinox. Toggling between the years 2020 and 1999, the series will focus on Astrid (Curcic), a “young woman who is very affected by the unexplainable disappearance of her sister and her school class in 1999. When the one survivor from 1999 mysteriously dies, Astrid is determined to find out what happened to her sister and the class, only to discover a dark and unsettling truth that involves her in ways she never imagined.”
