Warner Bros. Animation has begun production on a new season of Young Justice, the popular animated series featuring a teen superteam of DC characters. The second season ended in 2013; this will be the third.
Doctor Strange opened in many foreign territories last weekend, and has now earned $240.4 million overseas for a worldwide cumulative of $325.4 million.
This weekend it debuted in China, earning $44.6 million, close to Ant-Man’s $42.77 million bow in the Middle Kingdom, and substantially better than Guardians of the Galaxy’s $30 million opening in the world’s second largest movie market.
Ant-Man earned about $102 million in China, and Doctor Strange should do at least as well.
The holiday season is shaping up to be another battle royale in the toy and games category, with mass chains racking up huge numbers of exclusives, and one chain that used to be a huge toy retailer hitting problems from which it will be difficult to recover.
Target may be the most aggressive chain at accumulating exclusives. Earlier this fall it announced that it would field 50 exclusive games in a special program and then this week it announced that it will have a total of 1800 new and exclusive toys this holiday season, according to The Street.
Also this week, Walmart announced that it will have 400 new and exclusive toys for the season, a massive number unless compared with Target’s hoard. The 400 exclusives is about the same as last year for the nation’s largest retailer.
