Donald Glover Already Has Idea For The Community Movie

Donald Glover has an idea for a potential Community movie. Fans have longed for a movie based on the cult TV show that continues the story of its colorful cast of characters.

Community is an sitcom that ran for six seasons from 2009-2015. When lawyer Jeff Winger (Joel McHale) gets caught using a fake college degree, he attends Greendale Community College and forms a study group in an attempt to gain the affection of an attractive student. The show follows the group's various misadventures, from epic pillow fights to school-wide paintball battles. The show is praised for its genre-bending comedy and meta-humor, as well as the performances by each of its cast members. The show is now known for launching several careers, notably actors Alison Brie and Donald Glover as well as directors Joe and Anthony Russo.

The cast of Community reunited for a table read of the episode "Cooperative Polygraphy," with The Mandalorian's Pedro Pascal joining as a guest star. The cast then stuck around for a Q&A, where they were asked about the plot for a potential movie. Donald Glover, busy with his FX series Atlanta and his music career as Childish Gambino, initially joked that his character Troy Barnes was probably dead. He then added that a movie about Abed (Danny Pudi) looking for Troy would be an interesting idea, as they were best friends before Troy was written off the series (Glover left the show to focus on his music). Pudi agreed, stating "I love the idea of Troy being lost and Abed’s mission is to go find him, try to track someone down — that would be fun." The cast and crew have been vocal about their desire to make a movie, with the Russo brothers (now known for directing Marvel movies like Avengers: Endgame) stating that they would love to direct a Community movie.

Community was added to Netflix to stream worldwide in April 2020, and in turn has seen a surge in popularity. While Community is loved by both viewers and critics, it faced several obstacles during its initial run. The sitcom was often over shadowed by other NBC comedies like The Office, Parks and Recreation and 30 Rock. This translated into having a smaller budget each season and constant concerns that the show might be cancelled. The series creator Dan Harmon was infamously fired after season 3, but was asked back after season 4 (often considered the weakest season). The show was eventually cancelled by NBC after season 5, and was then picked up for its sixth and final season by the now defunct streaming service Yahoo! Screen.

Community isn't the only cast to reunite amid the coronavirus pandemic. The cast of Parks and Recreation reunited for a 30-minute special centered around Amy Poehler's Leslie Knope trying to keep her friends connected during quarantine. The cast of The Office has also reunited for episodes of John Krasinski's Some Good News YouTube show. With its new found popularity, hopefully fans will finally see Community fulfill the prophecy of #sixseasonsandamovie.

DC's BIGGEST Zombie Crisis Ever Expands in DCeased: Hope at World's End

Tom Taylor's DCeased storyline is expanding once again with a brand new DC Digital First series DCeased: Hope at World's End.

DC's BIGGEST Zombie Crisis Ever Expands in DCeased: Hope at World's End

Tom Taylor's series is getting another new chapter, as DC Comics has unveiled a brand new DC Digital First series called DCeased: Hope at World's End. The comic will expand on how some of Earth's biggest heroes dealt with the zombie uprising.

DC's Digital First imprint has seen DC Comics push further into exclusive online comics, with titles such as Batman: The Adventure Continues and the rereleases of select stories from DC Giants anthologies. Adding a spinoff title from DCeased, one of DC's most popular books is a smart way to drive more readers to the digital platform. DCeased told the story of the Earth ravaged by the Anti-Life Equation becoming a virus and turning people, heroes and villains included, into zombies. DCeased: Hope at the World's End will publish digitally twice a month. Meanwhile, DCeased, DCeased: Unkillables, and this new title will build towards the upcoming DCeased: Dead Planet.

DCeased: Hope at the World's End will feature art by Dustin Nguyen, Renato Guedes, Carmine Di Giandomenico, and Marcus Falla. The series will focus on the immediate aftermath of the infection spreading before everyone was forced to abandon Earth. The story will star Superman, Flash, Wonder Woman, Black Adam, the Aerie, Wink, Steph Brown, Robin, Superboy, Martian Manhunter, and Black Manta. Taylor said he wanted to do the series to fill in the gaps from the original miniseries.

There was a point in DCeased where we had to make the decision to skip weeks of losses and triumphs and heroism or our first miniseries wouldn't exactly be a miniseries, said Taylor. But we knew we had a larger story to tell, so we seeded plots we could expand on and deliberately left huge characters off the table for the future. That future is here.

Taylor teased a great Super Sons apocalyptic adventure, saying Damian and Jon will "stand up to the worst crisis the Earth has ever seen, and take their first steps on the road to becoming the next World's Finest.” You can bet the story is going to be heartfelt, gory, and grand in scale. Taylor has proven with previous DCeased entries that the story is more than just another zombie tale. DCeased: Hope at the World's End is set to be an exciting new chapter into the twisted DC world Taylor has built. Check out the preview for the series below.
