Team Europe win big in morning foursomes
Team Europe came out with a vengeance after a historic loss in the 2021 Ryder Cup, making history of their own by clean sweeping Team USA in the morning foursomes session.
Luke Donald picked some very strong partnerships as all four matches saw blue throughout the session, with the first two matches wrapped up at the 15th hole.
It was a dominating win for the home side and they will be hoping for more of the same in the afternoon four-ball session. The pairings have been revealed and play has begun for the second session of Friday.
James Gunn clarifies new DCU
James Gunn has finally begun clarifying details about who and what will be involved in his new-look DCU.
Movies have continued to come out but no one has really been sure whether or not the characters were part of the new universe or were going to be left behind, as well as which previously used characters still have a part to play.
Now, Gunn has revealed three characters and actors who will be part of the new DCU; John Cena as Peacemaker, Xolo Maridueña as Blue Beetle, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller.
He has said it is okay for fans to be confused and clarified that the official canon events will begin starting with Creature Commandos, an animated series set for release next year.
Aston Villa looking at cutting ties with Castore
Aston Villa could be looking to cut ties with kit supplier Castore after players of the men's and women's sides complained about the ‘wet-look’ shirts affecting their performance.
It’s been hard to miss the frankly odd paper design of the Villa shirts, with players looking absolutely drenched by the end of the game.
Castore previously promised to "address this issue as quickly as possible to meet the standards we expect," but reports now say that talks are ongoing between the two sides to cut the deal short at the end of the season.
The supplier is said to be working on long-term solutions for the remainder of the season as well as short-term for as early as this weekend.
F&F 11 among highest priority scripts post-strikes
The end of the WGA strikes has come and studios are now looking at the projects that are amongst the highest priority to get or continue working on.
The latest instalment in the Fast and Furious franchise is a priority for Universal, while Netflix are looking to get started with Season 5 of Stranger Things.
Warner Bros will begin work on Batman 2 again, although the original release date of 3rd October 2025 is likely to be pushed back.
This may be the par for many companies, with multiple projects having to be pushed back to adjust for the delays.
Osimhen looking at legal action against Napoli
Victor Osimhen is looking into the possibility of legal action against his own team after a TikTok post from the Napoli account essentially mocked him for missing a penalty.
The club have now come out to say that they “never intended to offend” their star player, but the damage has seemingly already been done.
The Nigerian marksman has deleted all pictures of himself in a Napoli shirt on social media and his agent has stated they are looking at taking legal action.
Napoli rejected multiple big offers for the player during the summer window and contract extension talks were opened months ago, although they are yet to continue and now look unlikely to begin again anytime soon.
