A familiar voice returns to Guardians of the Galaxy. Joe Carnahan is aiming for an R-rated take on Uncharted. There’s new confusion about Logan getting a post-credits scene. Plus, the return of Dean Cain on Supergirl, what’s to come on Flash and Arrow, and a new look at Sense8 season two. To me, my spoilers!
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
For once, Guardians of the Galaxy news from a social media account that isn’t James Gunn’s. Rob Zombie revealed on his Instagram that he’ll be recording a voiceover for the sequel—but fans may already know that Mr. Zombie voiced the Ravager navigation computer system aboard Yondu’s ship in the first GotG movie, so it’s likely he’ll either be reprising that role, or doing something along similar lines.
Various NASCAR drivers have been cast in the film, including Chase Elliot as Chase Racelott, Ryan Bailey as Ryan “Inside” Laney, Daniel Suarez as Danny Swervez, Bubba Wallace as Bubba Wheelhouse, Darrell Waltrip as Darrel Cartrip, Shannon Spake as Shannon Spokes, Howard Augustine “Humpy” Wheeler, Jr. as Tex Dinoco, Jeff Gordon as Jeff Gorvette, Richard “The King” Petty as Strip “The King” Weathers, Kyle Petty as Cal Weathers, Mike Joy as Mike Joyride, and finally (thank god...), Ray Evernham as Ray Reverham. As you can see, they mostly have goofy car takes on their real names. [Coming Soon]
Conflicting with earlier reports, James Mangold has confirmed that there is no post-credits scene for the movie. Collider updated its initial report to clarify, now stating that it will have something extra for the fans, “but instead of being after the credits, maybe it’s before the movie has started...”
Joe Carnahan told Coming Soon that he “didn’t spare the rod” in writing an intense, R-rated Uncharted adaptation.
When I wrote Uncharted, I didn’t spare the rod. I wrote it the way the video game is. They swear in the game, they’re kinda foul-mouthed and I kept all that stuff intact and I definitely didn’t write it as a PG-13 movie, I wrote it the way that movie should be written. […] Listen, man, those were the movies we were into, Predator… those were all R-rated films. The Matrix movies were all R-rated. I never understood the metric for, “This will make X-amount more if it were PG-13.” PG-13 in a lot of ways is a cop out, and I think it’s been exposed as such.
“R” seems strange for an adaptation of an Indiana Jones-esque action adventure video game, but hey, I guess Nathan Drake does shoot an awfully large amount of people during his travels.

Episode 19 of the season is titled “Dangerous Liaisons.”
But before that, here’s a synopsis for episode 16, “Checkmate.”
Oliver (Stephen Amell) gets closer to the truth about Prometheus. Meanwhile, Helix refuses to continue helping Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) until she does a favor for them.
Barry turns to the speed force in the synopsis for its own sixteenth episode, “Into the Speed Force.”
Desperate to stop Savitar and save his friends, Barry (Grant Gustin) turns to the speed force for answers. H.R. (Tom Cavanagh) gives Jesse (guest star Violett Beane) some advice.
Legends of Tomorrow
The Atom gets stranded on the moon in the synopsis for “Moonshot.” I mean, should that be a surprising thing to read about Ray Palmer, though?
When the Legends track Commander Steel (guest star Matthew MacCaull) to NASA Headquarters in 1970, they learn where Nate’s (Nick Zano) grandfather hid the last fragment of the Spear of Destiny. The team notices a time aberration during the Apollo 13 mission and believes that the Legion of Doom might be involved. As the Legends journey into space to intercept Apollo 13, the Waverider suffers massive internal damage and Ray’s (Brandon Routh) life is left in jeopardy when he is stranded on the moon. Meanwhile, tension grows between Rip (Arthur Darvill) and Sara (Caity Lotz) as to who is the leader of the team.
