Harley Quinn is getting a new animated series for DC’s streaming service | The Verge

I’d like to hear more about this. I wonder if it will be more of a comedy series, similar to Batman & Harley Quinn. Do you think you will subscribe to DC’s service?

Naruto & Bleach Movies coming to Netflix in February 2015

According to the Huffington Post, “Bleach the Movie: Hell Verse” and “Naruto Shippuden: The Movie” will be added to Netflix in February 2015.

The bad news? “Transformers Prime,” Seasons 1-3 and “Transformers: Rescue Bots” will be leaving. It is possible that these titles could stay or return later if Netflix can work out a deal to keep them.

Rescue Bots was my five year-old’s introduction to the Transformers universe, so we will be sad to see them go. Time to stock up on DVDs!

New Decepticon Leader

Transformers: Robots In Disguise will introduce a new Decepticon leader. As reported by Transformer World 2005, Steeljaw will be the new leader.

He looks like an Autobot that had too much Dark Energon, in my opinion.

I will try to reserve judgement on the show until it is on the air, but from what I’ve seen, I not excited.

Spider-Man: Ultimate, but not Spectacular?

Ultimate Spider-Man

According to, a new series, Ultimate Spider-Man will premiere Fall 2011 on Disney XD. Eric S. Rollman, President of Marvel Animation says “Ultimate Spider-Man will be a unique journey exploring our favorite web-slinger as he teams up with other fan favorite Marvel Super Heroes in never before seen stories with a new life filled with great challenges, new friends, intense action and character growth.”

There has not been any updates on the fate of Spectacular Spider-Man which is also shown on Disney XD. It seems that Ultimate will be replacement for Spectacular, which was produced by Sony Pictures. Ultimate will have big shoes to fill, as Spectacular Spider-Man was a well-written show with a fresh take on the Spider-Man franchise.
