Men in Black Spin-Off Gets New Summer 2019 Release Date

Sony Pictures is still moving forward with its Men in Black spin-off, but now fans should expect it a month later than originally planned. Sony has pushed up the Mib spin-off from its original May 17, 2019 release date, to June 14, 2019. If it would have stayed put on May 17, the movie would have gone up against John Wick Chapter 3, but now that Lionsgate action sequel has the date all to itself, although that will surely change over the next year and a half. As of now, the movie will face Warner Bros. Shaft sequel.

There was no rationale given for the release date shift, especially since John Wick Chapter 3 had been set on that date a full two weeks before Sony decided to put Men in Black 4 on that date. It's entirely possible that the studio was really trying to get out of the way of Marvel's Avengers 4, which brings Marvel's

Every comic book fan would love to see the heroes of Marvel and DC cross paths on the big screen, but let’s imagine for a moment what would happen if they just took each other’s places. For instance, what would it be like if the Justice League faced Thanos the Mad Titan instead of the Avengers? One fan has pondered this exact question, leading them to create a fun twist on the Avengers: Infinity War trailer.

As the DC Extended Universe isn’t nearly as stuffed with heroes as the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the trailer borrows some characters from other franchises to bolster the numbers. Namely, the likes of Ben Affleck’s Batman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman and Henry Cavill’s Superman are joined by Ryan ReynoldsGreen Lantern and TV’s Green Arrow (Stephen Amell).

Deadpool Wishes Betty White a Vodka-Fueled Happy Birthday

Deadpool learned that it was Betty White's birthday, so he took to social media to wish her a very happy 96th, while posing with a few of the comedic actresses' favorite things. In a recent interview, White was asked about the secret to her longevity and without skipping a beat she said, "vodka and hotdogs," which is definitely a program that Deadpool can get behind. One would imagine that the superhero probably celebrates with the same party favors that Betty White embraces and probably a lot more often.

In typical Deadpool fashion, the birthday greeting is pretty funny and could easily be turned into a birthday card for just about anybody of legal drinking age. The image, tweeted from the Deadpool Movie Twitter account, features the Merc with a Mouth laying down while toasting to a picture of Betty White eating a hot dog. He is seen with a
