We'll also discuss some quickies, including Willow's cancellation after just one season, the new Lord of the Rings Magic cards featuring the ONE ring, and the Hitman games being put on hold as IO Interactive shifts its focus to 007. We'll also talk about the ongoing Diablo 4 Beta, including the long wait times and the chance to win random game codes at KFC.
In another exciting announcement, Zack Snyder has teased a 3-day event in late April with Darkseid. Do we really need any more DCEU? What do you think it will be and what do you want it to be? We'll also discuss Ben Affleck's recent statement that he will never direct a Batman movie and his thoughts on Flash being his best work.
We'll also touch upon the recent concerns about the US potentially banning TikTok and discuss the pros and cons of the platform over the years. We'll also share what TikTokers are saying and explore some alternatives.
Moving on to Star Trek news, we'll talk about the impact of Discovery and what we want to see from the series moving forward. We'll also challenge our co-host, Thomas, to watch a Star Trek episode selected by Jonathan and Frank.
In our Last of Us Season 1 review, we'll dive into the story without spoilers and discuss how the second game will be covered in seasons 2 and 3. We'll also touch on Naughty Dog's plans for the third game and debate whether Joel was right or wrong.
