James Cameron says the Avatar saga might not end with the third movie. Sylvester McCoy is looking to join The Hobbit after all - just not as Bilbo. The Fantastic Four reboot might have found the new Doctor Doom. Spoilerama!
In a recent interview, James Cameron reaffirmed the Avatar novel is his next port of call in building up this universe, in the process hinting that he wants to make more than just an Avatar 2 and an Avatar 3: "I'm actually mapping this out. One of the things that I'm working on is the novel, which is a good companion to the first movie. To me, the book is laying the foundational bed for the entire world and all of the back-story and future history. There's definitely going to be a second and third film. I don't know if that means it's going to be a trilogy."
The interview also explains some of his motivations behind the rerelease of Avatar and what the final Blu-Ray version will contain, so you can check out the link if that's of interest. [Underwire]
Fantastic Four Reborn:
The upcoming reboot is reportedly considering Stephen Moyer, better known as Bill on True Blood, to play Doctor Doom, and in fact an offer is already out to him. This is the first time there's been any indications Doctor Doom would be the villain of the new Fantastic Four movie (other than common sense, I guess - the Fantastic Four isn't really known for its extensive rogues gallery), if there's any truth to these rumors. Which is, as always, a pretty gigantic "if." [ComicBookMovie]
The great Sylvester McCoy - who remains Doctor Who's only openly Scottish Doctor - dropped a few more hints on a possible role in The Hobbit:
"I am being cast in The Hobbit. We're currently in negotiations - there are two of us under consideration. It's not the Bilbo role, but could be bigger."
TheOneRing speculates he may be up for the wizard role of Radagast the Brown. Their logic has a leap or two, but either way, it appears McCoy is definitely in contention for a Hobbit role. [Argyllshire Standard]
Thor, Captain America, Paul, and more:
Movie Con III was this last weekend, and Empire has posted the videos of the full panel Q&As for Thor, Captain America, Paul, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. There are also additional snippets on X-Men: First Class, John Carter of Mars, Tintin, Hugo Cabret, and a delightful clip in which Simon Pegg says he doesn't know anything about Star Trek 2 just yet, but will make with the spoilers the moment that he does. You can check out all of the videos at the link. [Empire Online]
Here are some new images from what's thought to be the very end of the movie. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is holding a giant bunny for reasons that I'm sure make perfect sense: [SpoilerTV]
