The outlet confirmed that another project, Section 31 starring Michelle Yeoh in her reprised role as Captain Philippa Georgiou is also in the works along with a “show built around the Starfleet Academy, which will be aimed at a younger audience.”It has not yet been confirmed if the Starfleet Academy project will be a live-action or animated series.“I think we’re just getting started,” said Kurtzman about the ever-expanding Star Trek universe. “There’s just so much more to be had.”President of CBS Studios David Stapf added: “Anything goes, as long as it can fit into the Star Trek ethos of inspiration, optimism, and the general idea that humankind is good. So comedy, adult animation, kids’ animation — you name the genre, and there’s probably a Star Trek version of it.”RELATED: Star Trek: Prodigy Teaser For Nickelodeon & Paramount+’s Animated SeriesKurtzman, who revealed to the outlet that he “wants to get much weirder with the franchise,” said if it were up to him, he would be “pushing the boundaries much further than I think most people would want. I think we might get there. Marvel has actually proven that you can. But you have to build a certain foundation in order to get there and we’re still building our foundation.”

    The Rock Gives Tiny Glimpse of His Black Adam Costume

    Fans have been anxiously awaiting more information regarding DC’s upcoming Black Adam film, and in a recent Instagram post, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson gave fans an extremely tiny glimpse at things.RELATED: Young Rock Star Joins Cast of Dwayne Johnson’s Black AdamIn a recent post, Johnson shared a series of photos of himself in a board meeting for Zoa Energy. At the bottom of the post, though, Johnson teased that fans with a keen eye would spot that he was actually wearing his Black Adam costume during the meeting, albeit covered up in a black cloak. As Johnson is currently shooting the film, he’s got to stay in costume during any meetings outside of that. “If you swipe left and zoom in, you’ll see a small piece of my gold Black Adam [costume] peeking out from under my black cloak of secrecy (my weekly board meetings all take place during my 30min breaks from shooting Black Adam),” wrote Johnson.The photo itself (which you can see below) isn’t too much of a look, however. Fans can just spot some gold from Black Adam’s iconic golden lightning bolt sticking out near the top of the costume. For a more in-depth look, fans will have to be patient as filming wraps up and more is released. 📸: In @TheRock’s recent Instagram post, you can see a peek of his BLACK ADAM costume! pic.twitter.com/HqCZfQTZye— Black Adam Updates (@blackadamnews) May 20, 2021Black Adam will be led by Dwayne Johnson, who has been attached to play the titular anti-hero for over a decade now.
