And that probably won’t be the last we’ll see of Ruby Rose’s Batwoman, since The CW is currently developing a potential spinoff series for the Dark Knight’s cousin that’s under consideration for next season.

Mary Poppins Returns Review

When a movie is practically perfect in every way, the prospect of any sequel — let alone one produced more than 50 years after the original — seems like a recipe for disaster.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Gets First Weekly Event This Weekend

Nintendo has announced the first in-game event for its new Switch fighting game, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The three-day event is scheduled to kick off this Friday, December 14, and will make certain Spirits appear more frequently in the game’s Spirit Board mode.

The event is dubbed “A Spectacle to Behold,” and it focuses on Spirits who are wearing glasses. Throughout the weekend, bespectacled game characters such as Jeff from EarthBound, Brittany from Pikmin 3, and others will be featured on the Spirit Board. You’ll also receive extra Gold if you manage to defeat them.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate features more than 1,200 Spirits to unlock, making the upcoming event a good opportunity to add more to your collection. Nintendo says that there will be other new events in the game every week.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate isn’t the only Switch title holding an in-game event soon. The next Splatfest in Splatoon 2 is also set to take place this weekend. That event likewise kicks off on Friday, December 14, at 8 PM PT / 11 PM ET and will run for 24 hours. To celebrate the launch of Ultimate, this Splatfest is themed around Smash Bros.–specifically, it asks players if they’d rather side with Smash’s heroes or villains.

Everyone who purchases the game and registers it on My Nintendo by January 31 will receive Piranha Plant as a free DLC fighter. Nintendo will also release five other DLC characters for the game throughout the year, one of which we recently learned is Joker from Persona 5.
