Roku is planning to produce original content

Roku started out primarily as a maker of DVRs back when such boxes were still en vogue. It then moved on to producing set-top boxes dedicated to streaming services but those are now a dime a dozen. Since then, Roku has relied heavily on its advertising business to keep its name from being pushed into the background but it might soon need to find ways to attract more advertisers and users willing to sit through those ads. Unsurprisingly, its strategy is to create original and potentially exclusive content, a path that may have started with its acquisition of Quibi.

Next Star Wars: Boba Fett comic set during Shadows of the Empire

Next Star Wars: Boba Fett comic set during Shadows of the Empire

Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters isn't the comic we expected it would be. The teaser and the setup seemed to suggest that the new Boba Fett comic would take place after the bounty hunter retrieved his armor in The Mandalorian. Instead, the comic will take place immediately after The Empire Strikes Back, at approximately the same time as the latest Darth Vader comic series.

WandaVision documentary release date magically imminent

We can pretty much count on a documentary being made for basically every big-name production on Disney+ from now on. The next one that'll arrive is Assembled: The Making of WandaVision. This documentary, not unlike the documentary made for The Mandalorian, will focus its efforts on making clear the process behind the production of the television show as well as the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe considerations that were made in the making of the series.

Vizio M-Series 5.1 Soundbar review: Good sound at a solid price

Vizio M-Series 5.1 Soundbar review: Good sound at a solid price

I don’t think it’s controversial to say that watching movies at home can be something of a nightmare when it comes to audio. Back when I was using only my TV speakers, it always seemed like the audio balance was very off - scenes that were primarily dialogue would be whisper quiet while action scenes would be blaringly loud. So, I set out to fix that issue by getting myself a soundbar, which did help quite a bit but didn’t solve it entirely. The quest to fix this issue permanently seems to lie with multi-speaker/surround sound setups, so I was hopeful that Vizio’s new M-Series 5.1 Home Theater Soundbar would do the trick.

The CW has decided to skip DC universe TV series Wonder Girl

It seems the CW won't be getting a Wonder Girl TV series after all. The show was first announced back in November 2020, with the CW allegedly attached to a series based on the new DC Comics character Yara Flor, aka Wonder Girl. The show would have marked the first time a Latina character lead a DC universe series, but it seems the network has something else in mind.

New comic says Darth Vader foresaw a different future

New comic says Darth Vader foresaw a different future

Canonical comic series Darth Vader (Pak, Ienco, Menon) released issue 10 this month with a giant revelation. It would appear that Darth Vader was shown his own future in the span of time between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. This should come as little surprise for those that believe Jedi can actually see the distant future in the Star Wars universe - but for Vader, this has some dire implications.

Claptrap, the yellow robot with a distinct attitude, will be voiced by Jack Black in the upcoming Borderlands movie from Lionsgate.

HBO’s The Last of Us has found its Ellie and Joel

Back in November, HBO confirmed that it had ordered a new series based on PlayStation's The Last of Us franchise. At the time, HBO announced that Neil Druckmann from Naughty Dog and Craig Mazin, who was writer and producer on HBO's Chernobyl, would serve as the writers and producers of the show, but didn't have any casting announcements to make. That all changed this week, with HBO confirming that it has cast the roles of Joel and Ellie.
