After an exceptionally long break, the boys come back to talk about some new trailers, including Power Rangers, Iron Fist, Rogue One, The Old Republic, and a new fighter reveal for Pokkén Tournament. After that, they talk about more Pokémon news, a Mulan controversy, the announcement of more Harry Potter films, a Disney Don Quixote movie, a Black Widow movie, Jimmy Olsen becoming the Guardian on Supergirl, Amber Heard playing Mera in Aquaman, Boyd Holbrook replacing Benicio Del Toro in The Predator, Daniel Craig potentially returning for a 5th James Bond movie, the Wasp in Avengers 4, Jemaine Clement being cast in Legion, and Forrest Whitaker being cast in Black Panther.
