This will be DC Film’s first superhero film headlined by a Latino character and will join Batgirl as the latest DCEU projects coming to HBO Max. And finally, a very expensive weekend getaway in a galactic starcruiser is coming to Disney World. Disney has revealed the pricing for the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser adventure, and it ain’t cheap. Prices start at $4,800 for two people for two days in the “attraction” (it’s not a hotel, people), and it will include meals, entry to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Batuu, the fictional home of…
