Piercing Ken Thoughts: Since I hit the nail on the head in my closing announcement on PiercingMetal.com, I am just going to repeat my words which said “Straight up I will say that there is a lot of things that I am expecting to see revealed during the DC Fandome and I think that I am most interested in the upcoming movie and television series trailers. There has to be a new “Wonder Woman 1984” clip at this point and could we hope that something from the late 2021 “The Batman” film as well? I am hoping for a clip from “Superman and Lois” and maybe a tease of some other series that are being planned out. I imagine we shall see more about “Stargirl” and the other shows that lived on the DC Universe streaming service. Some of the more-gossipy sites had reported that massive layoffs took place in the company and what this means for all the things that we enjoy is anyone’s guess. I imagine its “more as the story develops”. For now I am just going to see what is offered up and hope that you are as well. I’ve been assigned some work today, so my time is sporadic in terms of my full devotion to this happening. Considering that both New York Comic Con and Anime NYC convention were cancelled due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, I see more events like this one coming to pass. Closing up I guess it’s safe to say that there will be a heavy supply of content hitting our Pop Culture features. Chime in down below with your thoughts about this whole thing and I will see you next time.”
