Before getting into this article, beware!!! Huuuge spoilers will be in this article. You have been warned.  Gotham fans had to be really shocked and surprised by the last episode of Gotham entitled The Last Laugh. Many fans believed that Cameron Monaghan’s Jerome will definitely become The Joker. Instead, Theo Galavan brought the man’s life to a sudden and shocking conclusion. Even though he will not be the Joker, he can have a part to play in setting the next villain. And guess what? The next villain may be a female.

The show-runner Bruno Heller revealed us that he is taking in consideration a Female Joker as well. And it might be a good decision, considering the fact that Jared Leto will unleash a terrifying version of the character in August’s Suicide Squad.  Even if Jerome is not the prime candidate for the Joker, the clown prince of Gotham will not disappear and eventually will show up in a form before the end of the series. This is what Bruno Heller had to say to ComicBook.com about all of this.

“100% possible. One of the central themes of the DC world is transformation and revelation. Absolutely, those kinds of – I wouldn’t want to call it playing with people’s expectations or gender expectations – but we’ve absolutely considered the possibility of a female Joker, and we haven’t…nothing is too strange or too bizarre or too shocking for us to consider.”

The Joker was present in almost all the cinematography related to Batman. From movies to TV shows, animations, and original series. In all of these, the Joker, always turned out to be a white male. It would be really interesting to see a version of the Joker through a female perspective. However, will the fans be pleased about this change if  they confirm it?

Season 2 of Gotham series is subtitled Rise of the Villains. Quite the irony considering the fact that most of the villains are falling very quickly. Because of this, fans started to speculate the fact that the Joker will be something they have never seen before. Cameron Monaghan brought new iconic traits for his character the Joker. He even had his evil laugh performed in a really good and unique way. However, his death stopped all the speculations made by the fans.

That said, the Joker’s death caught the attention of Barbara Kean, played by Erin Richards.  If she was Jim Gordon’s fiance in the first place, she turned out to be a villain that seemed to have quite the admiration for the fallen guy. Fans took this fact into consideration thinking that Barbara Kean may be the Female Joker. Who knows though…

The third episode of this new season ended with Joker’s last laugh, a source of inspiration for all the criminals and lowlifes in Gotham city. It was said however that the Joker will not appear in the show until season 8 or 9, if the series  lasts that long. This is what Cameron Monaghan had to say about  his role and bringing the real Joker into the woodwork.

“I think he’s the Joker in that he represents the idea, the greater concept. And somewhere, some kid or some person watched [his videos/the news coverage] and it burrowed into their mind, and one day it will snap and take them over. The idea of this person will possess someone completely new. So, I love that idea – something about it really is chilling and excited me when I read the episode.”

Some fans don’t want to accept the idea of the Joker being dead. But what about a female joker? Would that be a good change for the series?

Facebook intends to eliminate its news tab in the United States and Australia

Meta is seeking to eliminate the news tab on Facebook in the U.S. and Australia to avoid news media-related restrictions and financial complications. The business announced today that it will discontinue the product in April 2024.

Meta ceased Facebook News in the UK, Germany, and France last year, stating a desire to focus resources on its most valued products and services. The current announcement has a similar tone.

Facebook reported an 80% decrease in the usage of Facebook News in Australia and the U.S. over the past year.

Our investments are being realigned to focus on the products and services that are most valued by people as part of a continuous effort. The corporation must prioritize its time and resources on content that users express interest in, such as short-form videos.

Meta stated that news comprises less than 3% of the stuff that users see on their feed. Users are unlikely to notice this devaluation. Publishers have experienced a decline in referral traffic from Facebook over time.

Facebook News’ discontinuation is a result of regulatory actions and Meta’s decision to stop investing in new projects. Legislation in Australia and Canada requires platforms to compensate online publishers for their material. In August of last year, the business began restricting access to news links for users in Canada.

Meta clarified that today’s announcement will not impact the company’s existing agreements with publishers until they expire. In Australia and the U.S., individuals can share news on their feeds, while publishers can control their sites and add links.

The corporation stressed that it has no intention of investing in new news-related goods.

“To maintain our focus on developing products and services that enhance user interaction, we will refrain from forming new business agreements for conventional news content in these regions and will not introduce any new Facebook offerings tailored for news publishers going forward,” the statement declared.

Meta has reduced its focus on continuously investing efforts in news. Last year, Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri stated that the business would not prioritize news content on Threads, a social network introduced by Instagram.

For individuals who may not recall, the Year 2000 Problem, commonly referred to as the Y2K scare, was a thrilling period of chaos experienced in the late 90s. There was widespread concern about a potential catastrophic computing disaster due to discrepancies in dating systems. Today, we had the opportunity to experience some unexpected events as EA and Square Enix faced technical difficulties due to the leap year, causing their games to be temporarily unplayable.

Players of EA’s Sports WRC encountered a problem on the 29th where they couldn’t start the game because of a timezone glitch. The issue was promptly fixed, but users had to adjust their system settings for the next day to play. Meanwhile, Square Enix is facing challenges, with the problem only impacting Nintendo players and not PlayStation users. The Theatrythm Final Bar Line failing to start up ruined the release of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

In Helldivers 2, players will find themselves in need of additional firepower to spread freedom across the galaxy. Arrowhead Game Studios announced that armored mechs will be included in the game for free shortly after its release. Leaked gameplay footage on social media suggests that heavy armor support is on its way.

IGN showcased a few clips, with the first one being shared by Redditor fozzye18, featuring a Helldiver piloting a mech equipped with what appears to be twin-linked autocannons. It’s important to note that in another clip shared by Redditor Klyka, we witness a mech equipped with a gatling gun and rockets, hinting at the possibility of various strategy versions for these machines.

A clip from TikTok ponders the possibility of a different outcome at the famous Malevelon Creek, where the Helldivers community faced a significant defeat against the Socialist Automatons.

Mechs… enjoy
