Also, don’t think I missed the subtle reference to Becky “The Man” Lynch with the whole “The Man in Black has come around…” bit, Dwayne! I see you! I smell what you’re cookin’!

For those not in the know, Black Adam is a supervillain, most often seen in the comics as the archnemesis of Captain Marvel (no, not THAT one, the Shazam! one).


Warner Bros.

In his most basic possible description, he’s “Evil Shazam.”

The exclusive clip begins by showing off some key art, setting up the massive world in which the movie takes place:

Then, we get a few quick introductions to our cast of characters, including some familiar faces! We have Noah Centineo as “Atom Smasher”:

Aldis Hodge as “Hawkman”:

Quintessa Swindell as “Cyclone”:

And Pierce Brosnan as “Doctor Fate”:

After that, we get a lil’ sneaky-peeky at Dwayne all geared up and ready to go as the iconic supervillain before he introduces a short teaser clip from the film itself!

WHEW Y’ALL, this clip — while only about a minute long — is already promising! Basically, we see a group of people who’ve clearly never seen a horror film in their lives reading from an ancient-looking stone, before summoning our titular main man:

And he does not seem very excited to be there, which…relatable. He immediately turns one guy to dust:

Then, he proceeds to catch a bullet like it’s nothing. For real, Ozymandias WHO?!

So, there ya have it! What’d you think of our first look at Black Adam? Share all of your thoughts in the comments below!

Victoria Pedretti: 5 Things To Know About The Actress Playing Love In ‘You’ Season 3

‘You’ has returned for its highly-anticipated third season, starring Victoria Pedretti. Here are 5 key things to know about the actress!

There’s a new apple of Joe Goldberg’s eye and her name is Love. Victoria Pedretti, 25, is reprising her role as Love Quinn in You season three, which has premiered on Netflix. If you’re an avid TV watcher, you’ve definitely seen Victoria before. She’s one of the most talented rising stars in Hollywood and she’s going to continue knocking Penn Badgley’s Joe off his feet. So, who is Victoria Pedretti? Here’s what to know before You returns.

1. Victoria is playing Love Quinn. 

Love is a main character from Caroline Kepnes’ novel Hidden Bodies. Joe meets Love when he moves to Los Angeles after killing Beck. However, Love has secrets of her own as well, and has a brother named Forty Quinn, played by James Scully, who was central to the plot of season two. When she returns to our screens for the third season, Love and Joe will try to make their marriage work while attempting to leave their murderous pasts behind.

2. Victoria’s breakthrough role was playing Neil Crain on ‘The Haunting Of Hill House’.

Princess Anne Tells Camilla Parker Bowles That She’ll ‘Never Be My Queen’?

Did Princess Anne tell Camilla Parker Bowles that she’d “never be my queen”? One tabloid claims tensions are growing over Bowles’ pending ascension to the throne. Here’s what we know about the in-laws’ feud.

Camilla Parker Bowles And Princess Anne ‘Butting Heads’?

The most recent edition of New Idea reports Princess Anne and Camilla Parker Bowles are at each other’s throats over titles. Apparently, Prince Charles has plans to override royal protocol and make it to where Bowles will be known as “queen consort” instead of “princess consort.” An insider explains, “The official line has always been that Camilla will be known as Princess Consort. My feeling is that Charles would very much want Camilla to be known as Queen [Consort], which is after all, the correct title for the wife of a king. So my guess is she will be Queen Camilla.”

But Charles’ decision isn’t going to fly with Anne. “Rumors that Charles may walk back on his promise that Camilla would no be queen has riled Anne to no end, and she’s told both Charles and Camilla As much. Anne has made it plain that Camilla will never be a true queen in the eyes of British subjects. Anne wields a lot of power and has a lot of respect in that family, so you will find that the Wessexes, and maybe even the Cambridges, will back her on this. Charles and Camilla will face a lot of pushback.”

The outlet notes that Bowles and Anne’s feud goes back decades when Anne had an on-again-off-again relationship with Bowles’ ex-husband, Andrew Parker Bowles. “In the past, Camilla was always rather frighted of Anne — she can be very haughty — but I think she has mellowed a little with age, and the relationship is much warmer than it was,” dishes the royal tipster.

Camilla Parker Bowles Will Be ‘Princess Consort’

If Prince Charles really did plan to make Camilla Parker Bowles “queen consort,” it would cause a major stir. However, Anne isn’t cursing Bowles’ name because there are no such plans in place. Royal titles aren’t arbitrary — they’re the law. Unless Charles and Bowles want to take on parliament, they will have to settle for the title of “princess consort.” Besides, we have no evidence that either Charles or Bowles have any issue with the wording. In fact, Bowles even kept her “Duchess of Cornwall” title when marrying Charles instead of taking the traditional “Princess of Wales” title out of respect for Princess Diana. Clearly, the couple isn’t trying to make a power grab over titles.

Besides, there’s no substantial evidence to suggest Anne was ever a romantic competition to Bowles. While it was rumored that Anne had a brief relationship with Andrew Parker Bowles, no party ever confirmed it. It’s not impossible, but it would be incredibly misleading to treat this detail as fact. In their decades as family, Bowles and Anne have never given any indication that they disliked one another. With that in mind, it’s safe to say that this story is speculative nonsense.

The Tabloid On The Royals

Besides, New Idea has proved unreliable in the past when it comes to the British Royal Family. Earlier this year, the magazine claimed Princess Beatrice was moving to Italy. Then the outlet alleged Prince Harry incited Prince William’s wrath over a supposed Princess Diana Netflix project. And the tabloid even claimed Kate Middleton was pregnant with her fourth child back in June. Obviously, New Idea can’t be trusted when it comes to the royals.

Pop Smoke’s Killer Says He Wanted To Hit Rapper With A Vase Instead Of Shooting Him

The suspect charged in the murder of Pop Smoke insists he only wanted to hit the rapper with a vase, not shoot him.

Corey Walker and famed attorney Christopher Darden filed a motion on Friday to have his murder and robbery charges dismissed. Darden claims that the 20-year-old was not at Pop Smoke’s home to hurt him and told those he was with not to shoot the rising rap star during the February 19th, 2020, home invasion.

In the filing, Darden wrote that the evidence shows Walker never entered the home with a weapon and was not the trigger man. Walker claims he told the other suspects to pick up a flower vase if they needed to defend themselves against the victim or anyone else in the house.

Walker and four other suspects entered Pop Smoke’s home with the intent of stealing his diamond Rolex watch, money, and a gold chain that they saw on social media. As the “Dior” rapper showered in his Hollywood Hills residence, the masked intruders confronted him, and he was ultimately shot and killed by a 15-year-old. Walker told authorities he “assaulted” the gunman when learning that he shot Pop Smoke.

The next hearing is scheduled for December 3rd.

Amid Aryan Khan’s drugs case, Shah Rukh Khan’s younger son AbRam papped in the city; PICS

Shah Rukh Khan and his family has been the talk of the town ever since his elder son Aryan Khan was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) after a raid on a cruise ship in Mumbai. While the agency is investigating the matter, Aryan has been in judicial custody in Mumbai’s Arthur Road jail. Several celebs have come out in support of King Khan and are standing strong with him in this crucial time. Amid this, SRK’s younger kid AbRam made the headlines after he was papped in the city.

The little munchkin was papped in a car in the city. He was wearing a dark coloured shirt with orange stripes and had an intense expression on his face. He was accompanied by other kids in the car. This is the second time that AbRam has been papped post Aryan Khan’s name emerged in the drugs controversy. Earlier, a video had surfaced of the star kid wherein he was seen stepping out of his car in his sports uniform and was accompanied by two staff members. In the video, AbRam had given a quick look at the paps and then ran away inside.

Check out AbRam’s pics:

Meanwhile, Aryan has applied for bail in Mumbai’s sessions court. While the lawyers of both the parties have presented their respective arguments, the court has reserved the order on the bail application on October 20. It is reported, while Aryan is still staying in Arthur Road jail, he has been given qaidi number N956. Apart from that, Aryan has reportedly received Rs 4,500 as a money order from his family.

Nicki Minaj Takes On Saucy Santana’s ‘Walk’ Challenge (Video)

Nicki Minaj might be a little late but she definitely served in her recent video doing Saucy Santana’s “Walk” challenge, named after his hit song.

The two artists built quite the rapport this week after engaging in an entertaining livestream on Instagram that left fans wanting more.

The budding friendship started to grow some legs on Wednesday when Nicki went live to have conversations with her fans. She kept stressing during the near-hour livestream that she wanted Saucy Santana to join her.

After she finally worked through her technical difficulties, Saucy Santana got his moment with her and the two hit it off.

The pair talked about a lot of things including his music, his look and they even play a few rounds of “F**k, Marry, Kill.”

At one point, Saucy Santana got bold and shot his shot at Nicki Minaj, asking when he would give her a feature.

“I really only got one motherf**king question–when I’m getting my motherf**king feature?” Santana demanded from Nicki before Nicki got awkwardly quiet.

Santana joked that perhaps Nicki’s video froze, but Nicki clapped back saying he didn’t have to put her on the spot like that, though she didn’t outright tell him no. You can watch the hilarious clip below:

The two also had a little messy moment when playing a round of “F**k, Marry, Kill,” when Nicki suggested that Arrogant Tae doesn’t like hairstylist Jonathan Wright.

After cutting up with Santana, Nicki dropped her “Walk” challenge Friday while rocking a cheetah print look and bright red booties.

Did Nicki’s challenge give what it needed? Let us know!

Pretty Ricky’s Baby Blue Shares Shirtless Selfie: ‘Y’all Leave Lizzo Alone And Pick On Me!’

Pretty Ricky’s Baby Blue has been piping up lately on social media but on Friday he used his platform to take an anti-bullying stance against people hating on Lizzo.

Lizzo made waves this week after rocking a near-naked crystal gown to Cardi B’s birthday party. Her fashion statement garnered both criticism and praise.

She certainly captured Swae Lee’s eyes, who shot his shot at Lizzo on Twitter under a collage of pics she shared of herself in the much talked about lewk.

Lizzo had about enough of the body shamers and literally clapped back at haters with a pants-less twerk on social media.

The move got even more people talking, but Lizzo found an unlikely ally in Baby Blue, who spoke out against the hatred Lizzo has been receiving for celebrating her body.

Blue took to his Instagram page to share a shirtless selfie, trying to entice people to pick on him instead of Lizzo.

“Y’all leave @lizzobeeating alone and pick on me!” he wrote in the caption under the post. “These haters be so miserable in their own skin but wanna tear down others who are ‘COMFORTABLE’ in theirs.”

Baby Blue stressed that beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder.

“Beauty comes in all shapes, sizes and skin tones. [Let’s] normalize appreciating, loving and encouraging one another.”

Baby Blue has been using social media quite frequently lately to share his opinions. The other day he demanded his group Pretty Ricky receive their “flowers” claiming that they are one of the “greatest groups in history!”

His fellow bandmate Pleasure P called him out for “begging” for flowers.

14 Sweet And Unexpected Ways Queer Celebrities Met Their Partners

Cynthia and Christine met at a campaign event for the Alliance for Quality Education. Cynthia — who had two kids in the New York City public school system — and Christine, who helped found the nonprofit organization, were both at the event fighting to decrease class sizes. In an interview with Attitude, Cynthia — who had previously dated only men — explained, “Falling in love with my wife was one of the great delights and surprises of my life, but it didn’t seem like I became a whole new person, or like some door had been unlocked. It was like, ‘I have fallen in love with different people in my life, and they’ve all been men before. Now this is a woman, and she is amazing.’” They started dating in 2004 and have been married since 2012.
