Could Red Sonja be getting her own TV show? That Charmed reboot is still happening. Ben Affleck says Batman is scared of all superheroes in Batman v Superman. Javier Grillo-Marxuach offers an update on Xena. Plus, new 10 Cloverfield Lane pictures, and Flash set pictures tease a new villain. Spoilers Get!
Speaking about potential cameos in future DC movies, Henry Cavill indicated that there’s apparently a chance Superman will make an appearance in Wonder Woman:
I haven’t heard anything yet, but watch that space. And in anything else, I don’t know just yet if anything else gets shot between.
Late last year we heard rumors that Batman would have a significant cameo in the film’s final act—is there a chance that that cameo has evolved into featuring both heroes acknowledging Diana? Although Cavill seems open to appearing in Wonder Woman, it’s worth bearing in mind that seemingly neither Batman or Superman recognize Wonder Woman when she first appears in Batman v Superman. Considering that this movie is going to be taking place before the events of that one, let’s just chalk up either potential cameo as somewhat speculative at best.
Batman v Superman
Ben Affleck reveals that it’s not just Superman Bruce Wayne is against—he’s not keen on anyone with superpowers:
The idea that there are more, that’s hopeful and also terrifying to him. Because then they could make humans even more powerless—or they could serve on our side.
Jason Sudeikis discusses his personal relationship to his character in the movie, Red (who is, unsurprisingly, an Angry Bird):
It has put me in touch with my inner anger, as does waking up, you know. [There’s] just a ton in my world [to] just really [be] angry and ticked off about – one thing after another. From the person I get to sleep next to, and the child, and the supportive family, and cool sisters and great friends – yeah, one thing after another. My anger bingo card is full... It’s not too dissimilar.
Here’s a customary “tells you the whole plot of the film” international trailer.
National Treasure director Jon Turteltaub is being linked to this movie, about a prehistoric predecessors of the great white shark, the Carcharodon Megalodon, now that Eli Roth has departed the project. [THR]
Assassin’s Creed 2
Despite the fact that the movie isn’t out for another 9 months, Tracking Board is reporting that there is already a sequel to the historical/sci-fi video game adaptation in the works.
10 Cloverfield Lane
A new gallery of images from the film has been released.
Bleeding Cool claims that (an increasingly very busy) Bryan Singer is producing an R-Rated adaptation of Red Sonja for TV, the legendary barbarian heroine who was previously a Marvel character before being picked up by Dynamite Entertainment.
Javier Grillo-Marxuach has taken to Tumblr to post a new update on the show, saying that NBC has approved the pitch story outline for his planned reboot series, leaving the door open for script-writing on a pilot episode to begin.
Former Charmed star Alyssa Milano says that CBS’s long-planned reboot of the witch drama is still happening:
Syfy has picked up a new Canadian-produced William Laurin and Glenn Davis, about a family attempting to survive the fall of human civilization after a swathe of natural disasters and the rise of supernatural creatures all over Earth. [Deadline]
Agents of SHIELD
Here’s a very brief synopsis for “Parting Shot”—which sounds like it could at least potentially set up the premise for the planned Bobbi Morse/Lance Hunter spinoff Marvel’s Most Wanted.
After tracking Malick to Russia, Bobby and Hunter become involved in an assassination plot; the team is changed forever as they race to save lives in the balance.
The third and fourth episodes of the second season now have titles: “Useful Occupations and Deceptions” and “La Dame Blanche”, respectively. [Spoiler TV]
A synopsis for “Broken Hearts” has been released, and reveals the source of the recently released picture of Oliver and Felicity seemingly getting married is a faux ceremony to draw out returning guest star Amy Gumenick’s Cupid:
CUPID RETURNS TO WREAK HAVOC ON STAR CITY — A heartbroken Cupid (guest star Amy Gumenick) returns to Star City with one goal – to destroy anyone in love. The team learns she’s killing couples on their wedding day so Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) decide to pose as bait.
Finally, new set pictures have revealed a new villain being faced by Barry and Cisco on the show—leading to speculation that this is in fact Rupture, the superpowered persona of Cisco’s thought-dead brother in the comics, Armando Ramon.
