Inu-Oh Interview: Avu-chan on Voice Acting & Queen Bee’s Music


ComingSoon Editor-in-Chief Tyler Treese spoke to Inu-Oh star Avu-chan about doing voiceover work and how the film inspired Avu-chan’s music going forward. Inu-Oh is now playing in theaters across North America.

“Inu-Oh is born with unique physical characteristics, and the horrified adults cover his face with a mask,” reads the film’s synopsis. “One day, he meets a boy named Tomona, a blind biwa player, and as Tomona plays a delicate song, Inu-Oh discovers an incredible ability to dance.”

Tyler Treese: Avu-chan, it’s pleasure to be speaking with you. You’re great in the film and the character of Inu-Oh is just able to connect with others through music and storytelling. So what did you find most interesting about’s Inu-Oh’s journey?

Avu-chan: That makes me happy. Thank you. Yeah, I really think he has such a cheerful personality, you know? He was born in a difficult situation, and even with his disability, it didn’t really bother him. He didn’t really care about it. And I really felt like I was able to connect with that. That was what was really interesting to me.

How did your involvement in the film come about?

I think the production side, they were searching for an actor who could do Inu-Oh, and it just happened to be [that] someone from the production staff was a fan of my band, Queen Bee. So the production staff showed a video of my live concerts, and I guess that’s how they discovered me. During recording, I have a sweet tooth. I love sweets. So they would often bring in a ton of sweets to me, and I was in fact eating almost one mochi per take as I was recording.

Obviously, your music is a vocal performance. So has that background made it easier to do voice acting since you know how to express yourself that way? Or is this a different challenge altogether?

So, Japan really has a voice actor culture, you know? There’s many people who want to become a voice actor and then Japan already has so many legendary VAs, and I’m not really a part of that circle. I’m not really part of that community or group, so I was really curious about why they chose me, who’s just completely from a different left-field place. But, when I was talking to director Masaaki Yuasa, he was telling me that they had chosen me because they wanted me to do something that voice actors couldn’t.

Like you mentioned, yes, I am a musician also, but I think I was able to pull on some of my abilities as a musician, and then bring in my performance. Of course, I love anime, and there’s fans of the voice acting that these voice actors do. So I was really scared, like I was worried that these fans are going to be like, “You know what? Avu-Chan’s great, but Avu-Chan’s not a voice actor.” So I was really worried about the feedback that I was going to get. But, from the beginning of the recording when I first started, I was able to become Inu-Oh, and all of that worry and anxiety was just blown away.

The musical pieces in the film are so great, and there’s a lot of unique instrumentation used. Has the film and the music within inspired you for any of your work for Queen Bee?

Yes. I really think Inu-Oh inspired a lot of ideas within me. Before I thought Japanese history would be just stories of people in the past or recorded history. But then I learned that there’s a lot of erased history. Not erased purposely, but just not written down or recorded, but it existed. My perspective on what history is was completely changed, and I really think living now and then separating us from the past is really not the correct way. I really think it’s like a continuous journey as humankind. So then I really think knowing the past and understanding each other now is really important. I really think learning that is going to give a lot more diversity into our music for us, Queen Bee.

You have a great cover of the song “Stayin’ Alive” in the film Bullet Train. What does it mean for you to have a song in such a big Hollywood blockbuster?

When I saw the film, I was like, “Oh my gosh, I can’t believe I’m in such an amazing film,” and it made me happy. But I do think that it’s not just me who’s creating those opportunities, but everyone around me are working as a team to bring me this kind of opportunity. So that made me realize that it’s just an amazing thing that we’re able to get together and do this. One of my favorite movies is Fight Club and then to be able to be involved in the movie with Brad Pitt and have this little connection makes me really happy.

Anime reaches a global audience now and your music thanks to streaming has also been able to reach around the globe. How meaningful is it to know that people all across are connecting with your art?

Yes, of course. Being able to connect with everyone around the world makes me happy, and I really do believe that Queen Bee is a band that should be loved globally. So, in order to achieve that, I will keep working hard. I really think that passion and keeping that burning desire inside of us is really important. So yes, I’ll continue to keep that fire going and give an effort to be loved.

And then my last question for you, you mentioned not really being in the like VA circles, but are you looking to do more acting in the future?

Yes. I think I would like to keep auditioning or I might get offers and if I do get offers, I would love to jump into it 100%. I really think that becoming someone who is not me or living someone’s life, whether that be on a concert stage or a stage play like in this film, it really gives me a sense of fulfillment. So I would really like to continue to work hard and keep going for it.

Sony’s Madame Web Character Details Revealed


As production continues on Madame Web, the first character details for Sony Pictures’ next Marvel film have reportedly been confirmed by Cosmic Circus (via MSS Reddit). Despite the recently released set photos which seemingly suggested that Dakota Johnson would be playing Julia Carpenter, it has been revealed that Johnson is actually portraying the role of Cassandra Web.

Meanwhile, Adam Scott and Emma Roberts are playing young versions of Uncle Ben and Mary Parker, respectively, with Mary Parker being Peter Parker’s mother. The outlet’s sources also note that Euphoria breakout Sydney Sweeney is actually the one playing Julia Carpenter, while Celeste O’Connor and Isabela Merced have been cast for the respective roles of Mattie Franklin and Anya Corazon.

Should these Madame Web character details indeed be proven true, it seemingly teases that the film would be a prequel, given the inclusion of young Uncle Ben and young Mary Parker. However, it might also be set in a new universe.

Sony’s Madame Web is being led by Dakota Johnson as the titular Spider-Man character. Joining Johnson are Sydney Sweeney (Euphoria), Celeste O’Connor (Ghostbusters: Afterlife), Isabela Merced (Transformers: The Last Knight), and Emma Roberts (American Horror Story), along with Golden Globe nominee Tahar Rahim, Mike Epps (The Upshaws), and Adam Scott (Severance).

Created by writer Denny O’Neil and artist John Romita Jr. in 1980, Madame Web is a blind psychic that has become a major player in the world of Spider-Man due to her ties to “The Great Web,” a multiversal construct that ties all “Spider” characters together across the multiverse.

Madame Web is being directed by S.J. Clarkson (Jessica Jones) from a screenplay written by Morbius scribes Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless.

It is currently set to make its debut in theaters on October 6, 2023.

Daredevil’s Cameo in She-Hulk Won’t Be as Dark as Netflix Series


Charlie Cox’s Daredevil is set to make his proper Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in the upcoming Disney+ series She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. While fans might think they know what they’re getting, series creator Jessica Gao says that might not be the case.

RELATED: Daredevil: Born Again Coming to Disney+ in 2024

In a recent interview with The Direct, Gao said that Cox’s Daredevil wouldn’t be the exact same as his dark, brooding self from the hit Netflix series. Instead, due to the more light-hearted nature of She-Hulk, it’ll be a different portrayal of the character.

“And Charlie is so wonderful,” said Gao. “He’s so game to do whatever, and he’s such a wonderful actor and a wonderful human being. What was so fun about bringing him and Daredevil into our world is that people have already seen a Daredevil who is very dramatic, a little bit on the heavy side, very dark, brooding.”

Gao went on to note that Cox’s cameo is no different than any other cameo She-Hulk plans to have and that every hero who appears in the series does so with the tone of the show as a whole.

“And it was so fun to be able to do — and we do this with every character cameo from the MCU — is we take them from the environment that you know them from, which is a much more dramatic and action-oriented role, much more on the serious side, and we bring them into our world and they get to play in the tone of She-Hulk. And they got to explore and we get to see a lighter side of that character.”

Whether or not the upcoming Daredevil: Born Again Disney+ series is anything like the Netflix series remains to be seen. However, when folks first see Daredevil pop up in the MCU, they shouldn’t expect the typical brooding hero that they may be used to.

Due to the game’s appearance on PC, Spider-Man Remastered will support some incredibly intense graphics settings, including ray traced reflections, NVIDIA DLSS upscaling, and much more.

Sony had previously run down its list of PC enhancements in July and reiterated some of them in this new trailer.

This remastered version of Spider-Man includes the original game, as well as its free downloadable content, its premium The City That Never Sleeps DLC, three additional suits, and some enhancements to the game’s photo mode.

The remastered edition also includes a ton of updated textures, graphical performances, and the facial model for Peter Parker from the PlayStation 5 version that is apparently a better match for actor Yuri Lowenthal’s facial capture.

One level was seemingly inspired by the Scarecrow sequences in Batman: Arkham Asylum, as an all-powerful, sugar-fueled Gary meant SpongeBob had to sneak around to avert the snail’s gaze. Another stage took place in prehistoric times before moving onto Wild West and karate-based levels. There will apparently be seven total worlds and more than 30 skins.

The game’s story kicks off as a fortune teller grants SpongeBob and Patrick’s wishes and they open up portals to “strange wish worlds.” It will also feature the original actors from the show, meaning Tom Kenny and Bill Fagerbakke will play SpongeBob and Patrick, respectively.

Interview: Debra Messing and Eli Golden on 13: The Musical


ComingSoon Senior Editor Spencer Legacy spoke with 13: The Musical stars Debra Messing and Eli Golden about working together on the film and the messages that the adaptation presents. 13: The Musical is now available for streaming on Netflix.

“After moving from New York City to Indiana, a 12-year-old navigates his parents’ divorce, his impending bar mitzvah, and his new school’s social circles,” reads the movie’s synopsis.



Spencer Legacy: Debra, you did musicals in high school and the show Smash, so what’s it like to do a musical film?

Debra Messing: Fantastic! I did Dirty Dancing and sang a song in that, so that gave me a sense of what to expect, but to see this group of 12-year-olds just be so talented, raw talent, and to see them clearly doing what they love more than anything in the world … it just brought me such joy. I was like, “anyone watching this is going to be filled with joy and hope.” It was an incredibly uplifting experience.

Eli, do you have a favorite song to perform?

Eli Golden: Yes, I think either “Homework” [or] … now I can’t do “Bloodmaster,” but when I was able to do “Bloodmaster” in the original key, I really loved performing that. Also “It Would Be Funny.” Me and Deborah should run that back one time.

Debra, to follow up on what you said, how fulfilling is it to work on this sort of project and see this next generation of stars as they start out their career?

Debra Messing: It felt like a privilege, you know? Like a peek into the future, because all of these kids … we’re going to see them all on Broadway someday. They were all just great kids. I think it was really meaningful that they were really 12 years old and not 19 playing 12. So to have that kind of wide-eyed sense of play, it’s like I could just cut to 10 years from now … it’s exciting, It’s exciting. I can’t wait to see them grow up and go to all of their plays.

RELATED: Interview: Gabriella Uhl & Jonathan Lengel on 13: The Musical’s Message

Eli, had you heard of 13: The Musical before? What drew you to the project?

Eli Golden: I heard of 13: The Musical through small productions, whether it was at camp or whether I’ve seen it just done. I saw many people do Patrice’s songs like “Lamest Place” and “That’s What it Means to Be a Friend.” That’s what really drew me to the project. My mom, funny enough, really was the one who was like … I was coming off a pretty big loss because I was very close to another part and I didn’t get it. I wasn’t happy with the Zoom auditions because it was at the time when COVID was at a really high peak, and I was like, “I don’t want to do it. Forget about it. I don’t want do it. I’ll wait until I’m back in person,” but my mom was like, “Let’s try out for this. It’s really cool. You’ll be on set with kids. You’ll get to meet a lot of really, really cool people do this.” And I said okay. And you know, callback turns into callback, turns into I’m up in Canada.

Debra, what message do you hope the adults who may watch with their kids get from your storyline?

Debra Messing: Oh gosh. I guess to be compassionate about kids that are that age, 12, 13. It’s a really, really difficult time. You want to fit in and anything that makes you different feels scary. Also, I’m hoping that it will remind people to educate their kids about other cultures because that education happens throughout the movie and at the end, it really is just a celebration of inclusion and diversity.

South Park Video Game Announced, THQ Nordic Publishing


THQ Nordic held its digital showcase, which contained multiple trailers for a variety of games. One reveal, however, was saved until the very end after the ending splash screen where many likely tuned out. This is bizarrely where THQ Nordic announced that it was publishing a South Park video game.

The splash screen stated that THQ Nordic still had 26 unannounced games before the number was scribbled out. It then cut to the South Park Digital Studios logo and audio of Randy Marsh likely using the toilet (which is seemingly a reference to the Season 11 episode “More Crap”) and saying “it” was coming. The “26” from the last screen then changed to a “25” before the stream actually ended.

No other details were shared and it’s not even clear what developer is on the project. A job listing on Question Games’ website said the team was making a South Park game, but it hasn’t been confirmed if this is the same project.

Ubisoft published the last two South Park games, 2014’s South Park: The Stick of Truth and 2017’s South Park: The Fractured but Whole. Stick of Truth was a turn-based RPG, while Fractured was more of a tactical, grid-based RPG. Both were received quite well.

Kung Fu Panda 4 Gets a Premiere Date


Universal Pictures and DreamWorks Animation have announced that Kung Fu Panda 4 will release on Friday, March 8, 2024. This means the film will take the place of a currently untitled DreamWorks Animation film.

RELATED: Interview: Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight EPs Peter Hastings & Shaunt Nigoghossian

Little is currently known about the upcoming sequel, but in an interview that ComingSoon did with the executive producers of the Netflix series Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight, Peter Hastings said this when asked about doing more with the franchise:

“To me, Po is really the engine on this thing, and he’s such a great character,” Hastings said. “It’s just one of those characters that gets so well developed and the people become so familiar with, that you can say, ‘What if Po opens a Kung Fu studio? What if Po buys a cruise ship? What if Po [does this]?’ and it’s like, if you’re familiar with a fun character, you go like ‘that could work. There could be something there. That could do that.’”

“And that’s why the whole franchise has succeeded through the movies and the TV shows. It’s just because it’s not about ‘how are we going to come up with another story?’ It’s like, ‘how are we going to have more fun with this character?’ You know? So I think it keeps going.”

Since Jack Black returned to play the titular Panda in The Dragon Knight, it’s possible that he could return to play Po again for the fourth film.

The Kung Fu Panda franchise began in 2008, with the first film getting nominated for an Oscar Award for Best Animated Feature. It featured the voices of Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan, Lucy Liu, Dustin Hoffman, James Hong, and Seth Rogen. Due to its success, it was followed by two more sequels in 2011 and 2016. The trilogy currently has a combined gross of over $1.8 billion at the worldwide box office.
