What’s New: Spider-Man, Henry Cavill, Warhammer 40,000, Barbie, Pokémon

by Neil Bui

The world of pop culture is a never ending world of updates, teases, trailers, and hopefully releases. What’s New Wednesday is a Dorkaholics segment meant to keep us all up to date with what’s new across comics, tv, film, games, and more! This week, learn about Henry Cavill exiting the DC Universe as he makes his way into a Warhammer 40,000 franchise.

  1. Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse: Official Trailer Released

Four years after the release of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, the first trailer for the sequel is finally out. Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse feels even more innovative and grand than the first, as we continue to see a multitude of animation styles fitting each unique reality of the Spider-Verse.

Synopsis: Miles Morales returns for the next chapter of the Oscar®-winning Spider-Verse saga, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. After reuniting with Gwen Stacy, Brooklyn’s full-time, friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is catapulted across the Multiverse, where he encounters a team of Spider-People charged with protecting its very existence. But when the heroes clash on how to handle a new threat, Miles finds himself pitted against the other Spiders and must redefine what it means to be a hero so he can save the people he loves most.

The film will be out in theaters June 2, 2023.

  1. Superman: Henry Cavill is No Longer the Man of Steel
  1. Warhammer 40,000: Henry Cavill Stars in Live-Action Franchise

After a turbulent past few months, first returning as Superman at the end of Black Adam, then exiting Netflix’s The Witcher as Geralt of Rivia, and finally being dismissed as Superman under the new DC Universe, things are looking his way again as he’s been announced to be the lead of Amazon Studio’s Warhammer 40,000 live-action franchise.

He will both star and executive produce the series, and it’s safe to say the show is in good hands as he has a publicized passion for Warhammer. The series will take place in the “far future, where humanity stands at the edge of what might be its brightest future, or its darkest age. The threats to humankind’s empire are many—traitors driven by the fires of ambition, alien empires sworn to reclaim the stars, and the corruption of reality by malevolent gods.”

More to come on this growing development!

  1. Barbie: Teaser Trailer Released
  1. Pokémon: A New Series without Ash

After becoming “the very best like no one ever was,” newly crowned world champion Ash will have his time in the Pokémon anime nearing its end. His story will conclude in 11 episodes that will begin airing in Japan on January 13, 2023. Following that, a new era begins as a new pair of protagonists named Riko and Roy will be our new POVs in the anime world of Pokémon, likely focusing on the latest generation introduced in the newest games, Scarlet and Violet.
