Marvel Announces Ant-Man Sequel

Marvel's successful comedy heist Superhero movie Ant-Man has been officially green lighted for a 2018 sequel. Officially titled Ant-Man & The Wasp, it will hit theaters July 6th, 2018. According to Marvel's official website, the sequel will mark the first Marvel Studios film named after its heroine.

Additionally, Ant-Man’s second adventure will lead to a couple of other films shifting their dates, with Marvel’s Black Panther moving up to February 16, 2018 and Marvel’s Captain Marvel landing on March 8, 2019.

As a fan of pretty much all of the Marvel movies, I'm excited about this next phase of movies! Stay tuned to The Spotlight for all updates!


Power Rangers Movie Casts Pink Ranger

Most 80's babies should be excited to hear a Power Rangers movie is in the works for a 2017 release. To hear that one of the Rangers has been casted is MAJOR news that the movie is moving forward nicely. Actress Naomi Scott has been casted as the Pink Ranger! Naomi was recently seen in the Ridley Scott-directed movie The Martian starring Matt Damon as an astronaut trying to survive and make his way back to Earth.

NEW MUSIC: "You Owe Me"-Jordan Hush

New music! If you are an upcoming artist looking to submit music, please visit our Features/Submissions page for more information (subject to approval). 

Today, we have singer Jordan Hush's latest track, "You Owe Me." On the ballad, Jordan opens his heart to his significant other who doesn't appreciate him or his efforts. He's done a lot, but doesn't get the reciprocation in the relationship he deserves. "I shouldn't have to tell you to come home. I shouldn't have to tell you that I'm lonely," he sings. 'It's cool 'cause you gon' miss me when I'm gone. You gon' wish that you wasn't a phony."

Really liking this track! Check out the ballad below!


RECAP: "Haunted House"-Scream Queens S1, E4

Scream Queens was ABSOLUTELY CRAZY last night! I'm really getting into this show! Picking up from last week, we find that Chanel is obsessed with Halloween, and she uses her own event, "Chanel-o-Ween" to give crazy presents for her fans. We actually see excited Chanel fans recording them receiving their "gifts," including razor apples, dead heads, severed hands, and even a box filled with blood blood. Chanel even delivers one present in person, and she gets a lot of print and social media coverage because of it all.
