The mortuary assistant moves to a larger screen

The mortuary assistant is an indie game about the worst first day at work…ALREADY! Seriously, you play as a young woman working in a morgue only to discover there’s a demon in one of the bodies and it’s trying to possess you. The game editor DreadXP announced that they are taking the big leap to film with an adaptation of the game, which will be directed by Jeremiah Kipp (sins, slapface). Patrick Ewald will produce the film, while DarkStone Digital’s Brian Clarke and Ted Hentschke will serve as executive producers and Abbey Smith will co-produce. There’s been no casting news yet, but we think Allison Williams (Get Out) would be perfect as Rebecca Owens.

DC Fandome canceled

The year was 2020. DC Comics and Warner Bros created a virtual global experience to rival Disney’s Investor Day. This event was known as the DC Fandome! DC Fandome shared exclusive content and interactive experiences with fans around the world. It only grew in 2021. Fans will be disappointed to learn that this year’s DC Fandome has been canceled and it may stay that way. A statement was released by Warner & Discovery,

“With the return of in-person events, Warner Bros. Discovery is excited to be able to engage with our fans live at many comics around the world and will not be scheduling DC FanDome for 2022.”

The decision not to host FanDome also comes during a transition period for DC at Warner Bros. Discovery, the company trying to find a producer to oversee film and TV in the company, in a role similar to Marvel Studio’s Kevin Feige at Disney. It also coincides with changes to its HBO Max streaming app, which has seen the cancellation of numerous shows and movies, including Batgirl. Ezra Miller managed to survive the DC Purge.

According to Wiki, “Wonder Man/Simon Williams is the son of wealthy industrialist Sanford Williams, owner of Williams Innovations. Simon inherits the munitions factory after his father’s death, but the company’s profits plummet because of its biggest competitor Tony Stark and his company Stark Industries. On the advice of his brother Eric, Simon tries to embezzle his company’s funds but is caught and incarcerated. Simon blames Stark for it and accepts the proposal of master villain Baron Heinrich Zemo after the ‘Enchantress has paid her bail, as a pawn is needed to infiltrate the Avengers. Desperate Simon Williams agrees and transforms into an ion-powered being with superhuman powers. His powers are tested and he is shown to have great superhuman strength and great durability, even defeating the executioner. Called Wonder Man by Zemo, he is then sent to meet and join the Avengers, with instructions to betray them at a critical moment so Zemo’s Masters of Evil can destroy the Avengers.
