Michael Keaton BeetleJuice 2?

Late last year social media was a buzz over some media posts from anonymous sources at CinemaCon which lead to the hint of a sequel to the beloved film, Beetlejuice.

It’s finally official: Beetlejuice 2 is in the works, according to MovieWeb!  It’s been announced by Warner Bros. that the long-gestating sequel is in development, though this follows months of rumors that the sequel was finally getting on the right track. Warner Bros. made the announcement during the studio’s panel at CinemaCon, just a sequel is in development. It’s unclear if Michael Keaton will return to the role, though it seems likely, given his blessing in the past. He’s also had no issues in revisiting classic Tim Burton characters as seen by his return as Batman for the upcoming movie The Flash.

Brad Pitt’s production company, Plan B, has joined Warner Bros for the production of the film, and according to Variety, actress Jenna Ortega is reportedly in talks with Tim Burton currently. After months and months of rumors that the movie was on the right track; Warner Bros. announced it’s officially in development at CinemaCon; but sadly, not much was announced beyond the thumbs up that the sequel is in development. It’s still unclear if Michael Keaton will return to the role,  He’s also had no issues in revisiting classic Tim Burton characters as seen by his return as Batman for the upcoming movie The Flash.

Here’s what we do know now that we’ve received the news that Beetlejuice 2 is in the works: Director Tim Burton is a go. However, Michael Keaton has said that the Beetlejuice 2 ship may have sailed. So far, fact-checkers be advised that the movie posters for Beetlejuice 2 for the moment are untrue and fan-made. It would be unique to figure out the storyline for a sequel. What do you think it could be? I, personally, am not a fan of sequels. I even think Rocky should have stopped after seven films!

How to REALLY enjoy Free Comic Book Day in Michigan

May is full of nerdy goodness. And one of the best is Free Comic Book Day. Always falling on the 1st Saturday in May. Many comic book stores and libraries all around Michigan will be participating.

FCBD started back in 2001. According to Nationaltoday.com, retailer Joe Field started proposing making an event in conjunction with all of the huge superhero film releases in the summer. Comic Creator, Jim Valentino seconded this thought, saying to start the day with the release of the 2002 Spider-Man movie. Soon after Free Comic Book Day was set for the first Saturday of May every year.

Free Comic Book Day is a great way to introduce new and young readers to comics. Generally, there are many selections for young readers and plenty for adults too. Some of the comics that are going to be available include FCBD 2023 DOG MAN AND THE LEAGUE OF MISFITS, FCBD 2023 UMBRELLA ACADEMY & WITCHER (MR), FCBD 2023 ANIMAL CROSSING & KIRBY MANGA MANIA, FCBD 2023 STAR WARS HIGH REPUB ADVS & AVATAR LAST AIRBENDER, FCBD 2023 CONAN BARBARIAN SP (MR) and FCBD 2023 SPIDEY & FRIENDS #1.

Where’s Free Comic Book Day Happening?

Many retailers add bonuses and extra sales on FCBD, so it is best to check your local shop’s social media to see what’s happening.
