This week on Hold 322! Competition heats up in the search for the right Aquaman movie script. We have bad news for millions of screaming Walking Dead fans. The Dark Knight Returns in Bat v Sup (seriously, look at the images). Guardians worked without an origin story. We have more of Marvel’s 75 highlighted for you. The Edge of the Spider-Verse begins as other comics end. We bid a fond farewell to Gail Simone on Batgirl and maybe Scott Snyder on Batman(?). Star Wars concludes its run and why do I want to read Muliversity? Bob asks: “what do think?”
All this and Star Trek news! Face front, true believers! It’s Hold 322!

The reason that ninja turtles gets two weeks at one is because on week one my 5 year old son says, “DAD! I want to see the ninja turtle movie!” And I have to go make sure there aren’t any boobs or bad words, or gratuitous violenence. So I go see ninja turtles instead of Guardians (for a second time.) then the second week I go and now I take me AND my kids to see it, instead of Guardians (for the third time.) and that is the story of how Michael Bay stole my movie theater time from me for two weeks.
And since none of you have seen it, here’s a review… It’s not my ninja turtles, but the kids liked it. They hit the dynamics of their personalities but negated the need for ninja skills by making them nearly invincible, and they threw away Shredders character by making him boring. Ronan from Guardians was riveting in comparison to shredder.
