If you’re DC Comics, you probably don’t want your best and most popular representation of your IP to be named after a show you did because you weren’t allowed to put Batman in a TV show. So it’s not really a surprise that they’re looking for a new name for what fans dubbed The Arrowverse after Arrow, the show that Flash and Legends of Tomorrow and the rest spun off from. It looks like they want to go with CWVerse, which is a lot less evocative and kind of makes me think that Black Canary might show up on Riverdale.
Wouldn’t be the first time.
One person unhappy about this change is Stephen Amell, who played the Green Arrow on Arrow. CinemaBlend reports that Amell’s reaction to the use of CWverse was maybe a little over the top, even for someone who was an actor on a CW show.
They may be trying to call it The CWverse. That fucking pissed me off. Honestly, I think that’s probably a marketing department, frankly, trying to come up with content when they don’t have any. Because I saw that ad for the first time [using that name] on the B-side of Comic-Con where all the shows would have footage and none of them do [due to COVID].
Now, keep in mind that when Amell decided to leave Arrow, he was written off in a way that would allow him to come back for the occasional guest spot, as his character Oliver Queen became The Spectre, the living embodiment of God’s wrath. Amell, however, has said he has no interest in coming back for guest spots such as the big, annual crossover episodes the Arrowverse is known for. Maybe things would be different if Amell was willing to come back for an episode here or there the way that Wentworth Miller has done after his character, Leonard Snart, was killed off at the end of Legends of Tomorrow’s first season. As it stands, I can’t blame DC for wanting one of their prestige brands tied to a show whose star doesn’t want to play ball anymore, something Amell does reluctantly admit he understands.
I don’t care if they stop calling it the Arrowverse but you don’t need to come up with a new name. I don’t know. I left of my own volition, but I’m allowed to complain about that a little bit.
Sure. But the Arrowverse can’t revolve around Arrow anymore. I have a feeling Superman and Lois is going to be the anchor going forward, Superman is kind of a big deal.

Why has no one made an Invisible Man movie starring John Cena? It would save so much money on special effects shots, it seems like a no-brainer.
What someone is making, however, is a Peacemaker tv-series with Cena and I have a feeling it’s going to be absolutely insane. James Gunn made the best movies Marvel has produced (aside from maybe Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and that was with his hands tied by the system that Edgar Wright couldn’t work under.
Because DC is so far behind Marvel and their only big hit has been R-rated departure from the normal Joker, I think they are just going to let James Gunn go nuts on The Suicide Squad and because Peacemaker isn’t even a theatrical release but an HBO Max show about a character that hasn’t been in a comic book in a decade I doubt they’re even going to check and see what Gunn has done until after it airs.
Basically, I believe Peacemaker is going to be from James Gunn who made LolliLove and Super but set in the DC Universe. Who doesn’t want that?
And the good news is Peacemaker is coming sooner than we thought.
Lovely gift from my friends at @XBox (of course it’s in the busiest time of my life, between two movies & a TV show). But perhaps I’ll find some down time as I begin my mandatory two-week quarantine here in Canada for Peacemaker. #XboxSeriesX #Xbox pic.twitter.com/ngJhCJy6Nx

Yeah, look at that. He’s starting his quarantine for Peacemaker soon, which means it’s going to film soon which means we can see that glorious insanity soon. I’m harder than the cow monster in Tromeo and Juliette in anticipation.

We should really stop screening athletes to see if they’re smoking pot. I mean, ideally, we should legalize pot and decriminalize other recreational drugs because drug addiction is a health problem, not a crime and the war on drugs has been a huge waste of money that has only served to highlight the racism present in the criminal justice system. But it’s a really big problem with athletes in particular.
Take, for example, Mike Tyson. Mike Tyson loves to smoke weed. He’s like Tommy Chong if Tommy Chong could kick your ass, which he could not. As a boxer, Tyson had to take regular drug tests which he would fail if there was weed in his system, so he did what anyone in his situation would do and filled a fake dick with baby piss to pass drug tests.
“It was awesome, man,” Tyson said, according to MMAmania.com. “I put my baby’s urine in it. And sometimes, one time I was using my wife’s and my wife was like ‘Baby you better not hope that it comes back pregnant or something.’ And I said, ‘Nah, so we ain’t gonna use you any more, we’re gonna use the kid.’”
Now, Mike Tyson says he never took steroids and I have no reason not to believe him. He wouldn’t need to fake a drug test at all if there weren’t rules against athletes using recreational drugs that serve no purpose.
Lance Armstrong eventually got caught doping because he had such a wide-ranging conspiracy to enable him to use performance-enhancing drugs that it couldn’t be maintained and simple solutions like Tyson used wouldn’t work today. Why are we wasting resources busting people for smoking pot, something that provides no edge in competition and doesn’t pose a danger to competing athletes?
Sure, the dick full of baby urine is a funny story, but how many resources have we wasted on pot that go to solving actual problems?

It's possible that no public figures in modern history have emphasized their commitment to the ideals of ultra-conservative evangelicalism as much as the Duggars.
Which is one of the reasons it's so strange that they're almost equally committed to supporting the political career of a man who has spent his entire adult life lying, cheating, womanizing, and enriching himself at the expense of others.
Yes, as you're probably aware, the Duggars -- for the most part -- are Trump people.
Even the ones you might expect to take a more moderate stance -- such as Jana Duggar -- are fully on board the MAGA train.
In fact, fans became upset when Jana posted pro-Trump content to her Instagram page last month.
There might be one exception to the rule, as it was recently discovered that Jill Duggar follows Joe Biden on Instagram.
But other than that, the gang is all in.
As far as we can tell, even the Los Angelenos, Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo, cast their ballots for the Donald.
Of course, they may have done so simply because they're staunchly anti-choice and they believe the "D" next to some senators' names stands for "devil."
The point being, the majority of the family voted for Trump, but some of them may have done so simply because they felt they lacked for options.
And then there are the others, the diehards, the tinfoil-hat-wearing, QAnon weirdos who think the government is listening to your thoughts as you read this.
In other words, the Anna Duggars.
Anna Duggar took to Instagram this week to share her views on ways in which the media is allegedly manipulating the public post-election.
As you may have guessed, those views are rather insane.
“Hey guys, I just tried this and it was kind of interesting,” Anna said in a newly posted video that shows only a close-up of her iPhone.
(We assume she borrowed Josh's to shoot the clip.)
From there, Anna asks Siri for the president's age, and it responds with Kamala Harris' age.
She captioned the clip, “@apple What’s up with this?!”
Now, as any sane person can see, there's nothing up with this at all.
iPhones are insanely sophisticated machines, and as anyone who uses one with any regularity can tell you, they occasionally malfunction.
The glitch has since been corrected, which is something you can test out for yourself right now, if you happen to have an iPhone handy.
Anyway, Anna is clearly convinced that something sinister is afoot here.
Fortunately, her Instagram followers were quick to put her in her place.
"Stop spreading propaganda to the thousands of trump supporters that follow you, they’ll believe anything. Go back to promoting bootleg earpods," one follower wrote.
"Love how y’all claim to love God but then praise the man who is against everything that He stands for," another chimed in,
"Sad really, how brainwashed he’s got people."
Obviously, Anna has gone off the deep end a bit with this one.
But we can't blame her for being the suspicious type.
After all, the woman has been living with Josh Duggar for most of her adult life.
As this season of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way winds to a close, the original series itself is almost back.
TLC just dropped the first trailer for Season 8, showing new couples and some very familiar faces ... and a whole lot of drama.
Three of these couples are familiar to longtime 90 Day Fiance fans, especially those who have seen Before The 90 Days.
Four of them are brand new, bringing their own fresh dynamics and complicated backstories, challenges, and drama.
And even some of these returning couples are bringing brand new angles in the season that may make or break them.
Probably the most recognizable returning couple is Rebecca Parrott and Zied Hakimi.
Rebecca is a fan-favorite, known for her no-nonsense statements, for intervening to protect her castmates, and for her liberal use of photo filters.
Seeing Zied get a tattoo is a surprise to many fans ... but a mark of his commitment to marrying her.
In addition to Zied getting a tattoo (making us wonder if he can even go home again), it looks like they're dealing with a timing issue.
Zied is not always overly friendly in the way that he shares things, but it looks like he is eager to marry Rebecca.
Rebecca does not like feeling rushed, so she balks when he sets a deadline that's basically an ultimatum.
Arguably tied with those two are Tarik Myers and Hazel Cagalitan.
Tarik was of course bogged down in somewhat recent drama with Dean Hashim after the two left Pillow Talk with some hurt feelings.
But Tarik's real, on-screen story is about Hazel.
This season, Hazal is coming to the US where it looks like she and Tarik may be looking for a polyamorous situation.
They're not shopping for a "unicorn" threesome -- Hazel is bisexual and has been closeted for most of her life while living in the Philippines.
In the US, it looks like she wants to be able to live as her authentic self.
That Hazel is bi is not actually new information -- Tarik posted a tribute to her for Pride Month in 2019.
While not all (or even most) bi folks are polyamorous, it looks like Tarik is supportive.
We cannot emphasize enough how excited we are to watch this storyline in particular.
The third familiar couple is Mike Youngquist and Natalie Mordovtseva.
Honestly, fans are shaking with the knowledge that these two are still together and trying to make it work long enough to show up on an other season.
We all remember how miserably unhappy they both seemed, even without their major religious conflict factored in.
This season, we're going to see things get ... even worse, it looks like.
Last season, it was Natalie hesitating to use words like "love" and making Mike leave the room upset.
Now, Natalie's in tears and calling Mike a "monster" for making her leave.
On to the new blood, we have Brandon and Julia, a young and attractive couple.
Julia is Russian. Brandon is from a conservative American farming family who expect to see Julia work as a farmhand.
As if the prospect of farm labor weren't nightmare fodder enough, it looks like their relationship will have ultimatums and a pregnancy scare.
Then there are Jovi and Yara.
These two seem to fall into the familiar role of a pair of young people who met and hooked up on vacation.
Having fun boning and even catching feelings is not the same thing as being compatible, or ready to commit.
Stephanie is a businesswoman in her early 50s who is pretty new to the world of serious relationships.
Ryan is from Belize and appears to be considerably younger.
Given that Stephanie says the words "sugar mama" in the trailer as Ryan asks for gifts, we may be looking at a "scammer" storyline ... but we've all been surprised before.
Andrew and Amira appear to be an age-appropriate couple who fell head over heels for each other very quickly.
Amira -- whose voice was distinctly French in the trailer -- runs into complications on her journey to be with Andrew.
It looks like she will have an immigration detention horror story to share. As she says in the trailer, nobody deserves to go through that.
Season 8 premieres on December 6.
If you're a longtime fan of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, we probably don't need to tell you that very few of the shows' couples actually make it to the altar.
In fact, love matches that are formed in the heat of competition are more likely to result in nasty, tabloid-fodder breakups than happily ever afters.
So the odds would have been stacked against Clare Crawley and Dale Moss no matter.
And some fans think they're chances of making it ads a couple are even worse due to the unusual circumstances under which they got engaged.
In case you missed it, Dale proposed to Clare on last week's episode of The Bachelorette, and Clare quite eagerly accepted.
It was an unprecedented moment, and not only because no couple in the history of the franchise had ever cut to the chase quite so quickly.
Thinds progressed in such an unusual fashion that Dale seemed shocked when he realized he would be expected to propose to this woman whom he had met just days earlier.
Of course, many viewers have expressed doubts about whether or not Dale and Clare's meeting at the La Quinta Quarantine was really their first encounter.
Clare admitted to falling for Dale long before he stepped out of that limo, but she insists they never met prior to filming.
Due to Covid-related production delays, several months passed between the time when Clare's batch of suitors were introduced and the actual start of filming.
That meant Clare enjoyed an opportunity that no prior Bachelorette had ever been offered:
Though she was forbidden to contact the contestants, there were no rules about her scrolling through their Facebook pages.
Was that a bit unethical and unfair to the other men, as well as the crew members who left their families and entered quarantine in order to make this season happen? Perhaps.
But it seems to have worked out well for Clare and Dale.
Despite rumors to the contrary, Crawley and Moss are still engaged.
Not only that, it seems they've recently taken some major strides in their relationship.
Now, viewers just saw Dale pop the question a few days ago, but based on what we know about the filming schedule, that magic moment would have taken place sometime in midsummer.
That means Clare and Dale have been togetgher a few months, and while they may have reversed the order -- getting engaged first, getting to know one another second -- it still looks as though they have no regrets about taking the plunge together.
"This is the happiest time in my life. Everything [since] has been even more reaffirming of why I chose him," Crawley recently told People magazine.
"What I'm learning is that he's the yin to my yang. I've got this passionate side of me, and he just levels me out ... I've waited a long time to finally find this. And it was worth it."
Currently, Clare and Dale are visiting his hometown of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, where Crawley is finally getting a chance to meet Dale's family and childhood friends.
"I guess you would call this the official hometown [date]," Clare said in a recent Instagram Story.
We're sure Clare and Dale are enjoying spiking the football on the haters who doubted that they would last a week.
But the fact of the matter is, they're still in the honeymoon phase, and from a statistical standpoint, the odds are still stacked against them.
Multiple studies have shown that couples who date for a long time are more likely to stay married and more likely to report high levels of marital satisfaction than couples who sprinted to the altar following a whirlwind romance.
Not only that, this is not the first time that Clare accepted a proposal on camera and wound up calling it off.
Clare and Benoit Beauséjour-Savard got engaged following their sting on the shortlived Bachelor Winter Games.
It's still unclear why the two of them called it off -- perhaps Lady Crawley was uninterested in taking on such a mouthful of a last name -- but the fact that this type of high-profile engagement is part of a pattern for Clare?
Well, that doesn't bode well for her future with Dale.
Look, Dale and Clare both seem like perfectly nice people, and the last thing we want to do is cast doubts on their chancers of forming a happy marriage together.
We wish only the best for these two.
But the fact is, they'll have to work extra hard to overcome the curse of Bachelor Nation.

Hailey Bieber is spending time in LA with her friends Bella Hadid and Justine Sky, proving again to us that she is NOT pregnant by exclusively wearing crop tops and posing for selfies with her crew.
The star recently squashed a story that was going around about her getting ready to welcome a baby, instead, she’s getting ready for winter with some new outerwear. Hailey shared some photos of her in a new fleece jacket from MM6 Maison Margiela in collaboration with The North Face.
Great minds seem to think alike, Bella Hadid was seen wearing the same jacket in her recent selfies. Or maybe they share it. Either way, Hailey has everyone including her cousin Ireland Baldwin wanting to cop one of their own! Hailey will need her beanies and fleece jackets when she heads back to the Canadian winter waiting for her in Bieber’s home province of Ontario, if they ever go back.

World’s Worst Monster Katy Perry Recommends Having Empathy With People You Disagree With, What a Bitch
Can you believe the nerve of Katy Perry? I mean, the absolute gall of this woman. What she did is so beyond the pale I don’t even know if I can bring myself to saying out loud.
Okay, I better just get it out and tell you. Katy Perry said that we should be nice to our friends and family who voted for the person we did not vote for. Have you ever heard something so outrageous in your entire life? I was appalled, personally.
the first thing I did when the presidency was called is text and call my family members who do not agree and tell them I love them and am here for them. #FamilyFirst. Call your family today. Happy Sunday.
— KATY PERRY (@katyperry) November 8, 2020
Can you believe that? Lots of people on the internet couldn’t.
You can disagree on pizza topings and tv shows, Katy, not basic human rights and decency

i'm not going to do that because those people voted against my basic human rights, but thanks so much for the tip, Katy!

Now, this line of thinking might make sense to you, but the problem here is it assumes that the Democrats are any better in any regard on any of these issues than the Republicans. Oh, the Republicans are homophobic? Barack Obama publicly opposed gay marriage while he was president. This wasn’t some distant past, this was the last Democratic president who left office less than four years ago. You’re mad Donald Trump put asylum seekers in camps at the border? Barack Obama built those camps for that purpose.
You can’t claim the moral high ground based on who you’re voting for because both parties are equally bad. No, Joe Biden is not better and more decent than Donald Trump, no he is not going to do more to help the disenfranchised, he has spent his whole life disenfranchising those people. You’re just not going to pay attention to politics for the next four years and assume everything is great because the blue hat guy won.
Katy Perry is right. You don’t hear that every day, but it’s true. You have to exist in a world where people disagree with you. You can be morally right and still be an asshole, and if you’re the one screaming and ranting about your family’s politics at Thanksgiving, well, then, you’re the crazy uncle everyone wants to shut up. Congratulations.

If you were married to Donald Trump, you’d probably want to divorce him as soon as you could get your full divorce payment from your pre-nup. It’s sort of like the reverse of a mortgage with a balloon payment; you put in your time doing something you hate and at the end you get a big, fat check.
Melania Trump is also a human being and as such she has been looking forward to divorcing Donald Trump for a long time. Seriously, do you believe anyone in the country was more excited when he got COVID than Melania Trump? She almost had the whole enchilada right there.
I’m not sure how much of a Trump insider Omarosa Manigault Newman is today after getting fired by the Trump administration and writing a tell-all book about their utter incompetence, but she is out telling us what we already know, that Melania is looking forward to Donald Trump’s last day as President as much as the rest of us. Omarosa said “Melania is counting every minute until he is out of office and she can divorce.” The reason she’s stuck around for the last four years, the former Apprentice contestant added, is she fears reprisal. “If Melania were to try to pull the ultimate humiliation and leave while he’s in office, he would find a way to punish her.”
I don’t know that Omarosa has any special knowledge here because if you asked literally anyone if they thought Melania was going to divorce Donald Trump, they would say yes, unless you asked Cenk Uygar, who would say “of cooooooourse!” Itks a bit like picking the Yankees to win the World Series, you’ve got about a one in three chance of being right with no insider information at all.
