Pop culture is a never-ending world of updates, teases, trailers, and hopefully releases. What’s New Wednesday is Dorkaholics’ way to keep us all up to date with what’s new across comics, tv, film, games, and more! This week, the focus is on The Boys, Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga, Godzilla x Kong : The New Empire, and Suicide Squad ISEKAI.
- The Boys Season 4: Teaser Trailer
The teaser trailer for The Boys Season 4 is out now and shows that this twisted world of superpowers can only get worse from where we left off in Season 3. It’s just as grim, nihilistic, and of course diabolically gory.
Release Date: On Prime Video in 2024
Synopsis: In Season Four, the world is on the brink. Victoria Neuman is closer than ever to the Oval Office and under the muscular thumb of Homelander, who is consolidating his power. Butcher, with only months to live, has lost Becca’s son as well as his job as The Boys’ leader. The rest of the team are fed up with his lies. With the stakes higher than ever, they have to find a way to work together and save the world before it’s too late.
- Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga: First Trailer
Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga is the upcoming addition to the Mad Max film franchise which is led by Anya Taylor-Joy as the titular Furiosa, the darkest of angels as she is referred to in the trailer. For those who did not watch Mad Max: Fury Road or do not recall the events of the film, Furiosa was a main character played by Charlize Theron, so Taylor-Joy will be playing a younger version of the character in this standalone-prequel slash origin story of sorts.
Release Date: In theaters May 24, 2024
Synopsis: As the world fell, young Furiosa is snatched from the Green Place of Many Mothers and falls into the hands of a great Biker Horde led by the Warlord Dementus. Sweeping through the Wasteland, they come across the Citadel presided over by The Immortan Joe. While the two Tyrants fight for dominance, Furiosa must survive many trials as she puts together the means to find her way home.
- Godzilla x Kong : The New Empire: First Trailer
Paper Boi from Atlanta (Brian Tyree Henry), King Kong with a knockoff Infinity Gauntlet, Godzilla emitting pink energy, (possibly) son of Kong, and a new orangutan looking villain – Skar King! I’m excited for what Godzilla x Kong : The New Empire will bring as the latest installment in the Monsterverse by Legendary.
Release Date: In theaters on April 12, 2024
Synopsis: The epic battle continues! Legendary Pictures’ cinematic Monsterverse follows up the explosive showdown of “Godzilla vs. Kong” with an all-new adventure that pits the almighty Kong and the fearsome Godzilla against a colossal undiscovered threat hidden within our world, challenging their very existence—and our own. “Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire” delves further into the histories of these Titans and their origins, as well as the mysteries of Skull Island and beyond, while uncovering the mythic battle that helped forge these extraordinary beings and tied them to humankind forever.

DC Comics’ Harley Quinn, The Joker, Deadshot, Peacemaker, Clayface, King Shark, Amanda Waller take on the isekai genre of anime in Suicide Squad ISEKAI.
Release Date: 2024
Synopsis: In the crime-ridden city of Gotham, Amanda Waller, the head of A.R.G.U.S., has assembled a group of notorious criminals for a mission: Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Peacemaker, Clayface, and King Shark.
