Domestic violence is never a laughing matter. However, it is a harrowing problem in our society that affects millions of people across the world. Each case is different, and some are so violent and saddistic that it defies human logic. One filmmaker, Trayvon Williams, is shedding light on one such violent case that went viral forever changing the life of a young Black woman, Porsha Daniels.

The story takes place on February 4, 2015; when Porsha’s ex-boyfriend, Nathaniel Davis, brutally attacked and stabbed her and her current boyfriend, Searrier Smith, after breaking into her Houston, Texas apartment. Porsha sustained severe injuries from 22 stab wounds, which according to reports left her nearly decapitated. She underwent a number of surgeries, but was ultimately left paralyzed, missing a kidney, and most of her intestines gone. Searrier, however, did not survive.

Trayvon decided to make this tragedy the source of his film due to his own experiences with domestic violence. “…I chose this case/ story about Porsha Daniels because I knew her personally. She went to high school with me. She reached out to ask me if I could tell her story for her. After seeing the pictures of her, and reading her story, I realized that like most women they don’t get out soon enough after seeing the signs. After being gone from Houston for almost 10 years; I realizes there’s a lot I didn’t know about the women in my family. Most of them have been abused by a man and never said anything to anyone. It’s almost like it’s a regular thing . Really the problem is stemming from an old mentality . Most older women in my family were abused, and most of them stayed. They passed that down generations and this was my way to bring it to light and hopefully I can spark conversation to women across the world through my art. Her story went viral in 2015. I was in LA when I first saw it. I couldn’t believe it because  it was so close to home. I saw my biological mom be abused as well…

February’s Pain is currently in development. It is set to be released as a full feature film in February 2020, with his production company “The Pioneers Collective LLC.” Stay tuned to HeyMikeyATL for more updates!

“Justice League” actor Ray Fisher, who was offered a cameo role last June to appear as Cyborg in “The Flash” solo movie, publicly stated he did not want to be involved with the project via Twitter, hence the character of Cyborg has been written out of the screenplay and will not be recast, according to insiders with knowledge of the situation.

Fisher publicly resigned from the role last week in his continuing beef with DC Films President Walter Hamada, who is overseeing “The Flash.” The actor tweeted on Dec. 30, “Walter Hamada is the most dangerous kind of enabler. He lies, and WB PR’s failed Sept. 4th hit-piece sought to undermine the very real issues of the Justice League investigation.”

Fisher added in his tweet, “I will not participate in any production associated with him.” Of note, Hamada did not oversee the “Justice League” production and was not the head of DC Films at the time, nor was he employed during the film’s initial release.

Hamada first joined DC Films back in 2018 and lead the division to the release of its highest-grossing film to date, 2018’s “Aquaman,” which banked over $1.4 billion at the worldwide box office. On Tuesday, it was announced that Hamada had reupped his deal as president until 2023. Fisher called the news “reactionary” in a tweet later that day.

We hate to see Ray Fisher leave the DCEU; but as fanboys we hate to see Cyborg will not be appearing in The Flash film. As we posted in a previous article there are a number of young Black actors who should have been recast for this role, even if it was just a cameo.

As you may recall, Ray has been quite vocal with his distaste for the executives and directors over the superhero films at Warner Bros.; alleging racism, favortism, and non-professionalism.

There is no news yet in who they may be eyeing for Cyborg, but it will be necessary. The hero has come to prominence over the years as a mainstay of The Justice League and was set to have a standalone film in the coming years.

Superhero roles are quite coveted in Hollywood nowadays. Here is a short list of who we think would make a great candidate for Victor Stone/Cyborg:

Daniel Ezra

Daniel Ezra plays “Spencer James” on The CW’s “All-American.” There he plays a gifted football player, something Victor Stone was before his accident spurred his father to save his life with cybernetics. Daniel definitely would bring some serious muscle to this hero.

da'vinchi

Da’Vinchi

Da’Vinchi is an amazing young actor with the looks and physique to play Cyborg. Like Daniel Ezra he too plays a gifted football, and on Freeform’s grown-ish he was basketball star, “Cash Mooney.” We stan for Da’Vinchi he’d be bring some rather suave and debonair qualities to Cyborg.

Niles Fitch

Niles Fitch’s fame hails from being the teen and young adult version of “Randal Pearson” from NBC’s hit series, This Is Us. Niles has already played a superhero of sorts in Disney’s “Second Born Royals” and definitely can do all the athletic feats it requires to be Cyborg!

[Reese] Witherspoon will return as the starring role [of “Elle Woods”] and will produce the film through her Hello Sunshine production company, alongside returning producer Marc Platt. While no director nor other returning cast members have been announced (although Luke Wilson has told us he’s ready for the call), we know that TV comedy writers extraordinaire Dan Goor and Mindy Kaling will be writing the script together.

We are ecstatic about the news of a new sequel for the Legally Blonde franchise! We hope all the cast members will return, especially Jennifer Coolidge. A few ladies from the cast reunited virtually to raise money for a noteworthy cause.
