No Daredevil Until 2020?

Canceled Netflix Marvel Shows Have A Two Year Wait For Disney Streaming Service.

There is a clause in the contract that prevents any Netflix Marvel show from moving to Disney+ until two years after cancellation.

For Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Daredevil this means the year 2020.

For The Punisher and Jessica Jones this could mean 2021 with their next seasons already in the works.

But with Scarlet Witch, Loki, Winter Soldier, and Falcon shows already planned for Disney+, the timing might be just what the all powerful mouse has in mind.

Birds Of Prey movie adds Chris Messina to the cast.

Messina will play the character Victor Zsasz.

Victor Zsasz is known to kill with a knife, cuts a tally in his own flesh to keep track of his kills, and feels that he is doing his victims a favor by freeing them from existence.

Chris Messina is known mostly for playing Danny Castellano on The Mindy Project.

Birds Of Prey is not slated for release until February of 2020.

Did you think that Ian Ziering's career was over again now that the Sharknado series is over?

Ziering will play Daniel Cassidy in Swamp Thing for the DC Universe digital subscription service.

The series will not air until sometime in 2019, but is said to be a key recurring role.

The show will also feature Crystal Reed for her second character within the DC Universe (she also plays Sofia Falcone on Gotham).

The series will be written by Mark Verheiden and Gary Dauberman.

Doctor Who will not release new episodes in 2019.

The BBC has officially announced that the next series (or what we call seasons in the United States) won't be released until 2020.

BBC News Entertainment Correspondent Lizo Mzimba has said that it is because “Doctor Who has almost uniquely complex filming requirements and a lengthy post-production period.”

The show does seem to be becoming a bigger and bigger challenge to make with recent series getting a reduction of episodes, increasing gaps of time between each series, and even specials becoming less often.

There was even rumors that showrunner Chris Chibnall threatened to leave if he wasn't given more time on the next series.

Do you believe this or do you think it's just excuses?

Wednesday November 28th 2018: Episode 18

It's been just over two weeks since comic book legend Stan Lee passed away on Nov. 12th at 95 years old.

His cause of death has been announced as cardiac arrest with respiratory failure and congestive heart failure as underlying causes.

Aspiration pneumonia was listed as a significant condition contributing to death as well.

Aspiration pneumonia is a complication of pulmonary aspiration. Pulmonary aspiration is when you inhale food, stomach acid, or saliva into your lungs.

I personally experienced stomach acid in my lungs over a decade ago and I hate hearing that this icon of comics suffered with it on his way out.

We can all take solace in the fact that he is no longer in pain.

We will miss you forever Stan Lee. Excelsior indeed.

Stephen McDannell Hillenburg, the creator of Spongebob Squarepants has died.

He is said to have died of ALS, a progressive neurodegenerative disease.

Hillenburg was an American cartoonist, animator, and former marine-biology teacher.

Spongebob Squarepants was not only the longest-running American television series, but the highest-rated show ever to air on Nickelodeon.

Stephen Hillenburg was 57.

Many years ago Russell T. Davies had an idea for a Doctor Who spinoff called Rose Tyler: Earth Defence.

The concept has now evolved into an audio adventure brought to you by Big Finish.

Billie Piper returns to the role as Rose Tyler for the four audio dramas.

The plot will be more about human stories than the big monsters and aliens she faced before.

Rose Tyler: The Dimension Cannon is set to release in September 2019.

Pee-Wee Herman to be on 'Legends of Tomorrow' next Monday.

The episode is called "Hell No, Dolly" and will air December 3rd.

The episode is expected to feature the Legends as puppets, so this should be a perfect fit.

No word on if the actor Paul Reubens will actually be reprising his most iconic role, or playing a new unique character for the show.

Either way, you only have a few days to start binge watching, so you can catch up with the show in time.

Netflix announces an animated Charlie And The Chocolate Factory.

Not just that but every major story created by author Roald Dahl.

So this will also include Matilda, The BFG, The Twits, and even Charlie And The Great Glass Elevator!

Also part of the deal is to pull off an imaginative story universe that expands far beyond the pages of the books themselves.

It all begins sometime in 2019... somehow.

Resident Evil producer Samuel Hadida has died.

He died after what is only being called a 'short illness.'

Hadida was also the producer of Silent Hill and True Romance.

He was 64 at the time of his death.

Tuesday November 27th 2018: Episode 17

From the 'Way out of our league' department: NASA reports that Insight has landed on Mars.

Insight stands for Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport.

The lander took 7 months to reach its destination on a 300 million mile trip from Earth.

Insight will take two years to study the interior of Mars so that scientists may learn more about 'how all celestial bodies with rocky surfaces, including Earth and the Moon, formed.'

We at Nerd's Drink Whiskey can't pretend to understand it all, but we are in awe at the data gathered, analysed, and used by NASA to make our lives better.  

If this is what you use our tax dollars for, shut up and take my money! Go NASA!

Tom Baker to release a Doctor Who novel.

The book will be based on a Doctor Who script that he helped write.

The original script was written with co-star Ian Marter while Baker was playing his role as the 4th Doctor.

The name of the book will be Doctor Who: Scratchman.

The story is said to cover the time of the 4th Doctor, so old school fans of the long running series should be thrilled at the news.

The book will be released on January 24th of 2019.

Screenwriter Terry Rossio is in serious hot water after using a racial slur on his Twitter account.

Although mostly known for being a writer on Aladdin, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Shrek, he also has writing credits on the upcoming (and controversial right out of the gate) Jonny Quest.

In a response on Twitter the writer compared being called an anti-vaxer to being called the 'n-word.'

Rossio is against vaccinating children, but it's the comparison that is causing the backlash.

Disney has fired Guardians Of The Galaxy writer and director James Gunn, celebrated novelist Chuck Wendig, and others very recently for less controversial things said on the same social network.

Disney has yet to announce if they will respond to the use of this racial slur with the same level of authority.

More importantly, no word on if Warner Brothers will still trust Terry Rossio to handle the character Hadji with the racial sensitivity necessary in the recently announced Jonny Quest reboot.
