Flick News: Where Cinematic Universes and Physical Media Meet

This week's edition of Flick News, host Austin Putnam, offers a rollercoaster of emotions for film and TV enthusiasts. The hot topics range from Marvel's Multiverse Saga to the future of Halloween as a TV cinematic universe and end with an unexpected piece of news about the discontinuation of physical media at Best Buy.
 

Marvel's Multiverse Saga

At the recent Comic-Con, Kevin Feige unveiled plans for the new Multiverse Saga in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). A highlight of this revelation was "Avengers Secret Wars," which Feige hinted could serve as a reboot for the MCU. The film is anticipated to bring back characters like Steve Rogers and Tony Stark and possibly recast some roles.

Halloween's TV Cinematic Universe

In a surprising twist, it was revealed that Miramax has acquired the rights to create a cinematic universe for Halloween, centered on television. Putnam expressed skepticism about how this classic horror franchise, known for its focus on Michael Myers as an unstoppable force of evil, could transition into a serialized TV format.

End of the Line for Physical 4Ks

Best Buy, a go-to destination for many film collectors, will reportedly stop selling physical versions of media by 2024, both in-store and online. This move follows the growing trend of digital and streaming services overshadowing physical media. Austin laments this shift, advocating for physical copies' superior quality and reliability.
