There’s another new update on the troubled Crow reboot. Get a look at Seth Rogen’s Last Starfighter-esque new comedy for Hulu. The Gears of War movie has a writer. Plus, what’s to come on Lucifer and Gotham, a new snifter of Wonder Woman footage, and another new song from the Once Upon a Time musical episode. Spoilers!



Star Wars: The Last Jedi

A new video from Nerdist claims the film begins with Snoke “facing off” against a captured General Leia. The scene allegedly concludes with Snoke informing General Hux to tell Kylo Ren that his mother is aboard Snoke’s lavish capital ship, which could indicate that a Kylo Ren/Leia meeting is on the cards—rumored to be one of two potential scenes that would make for Carrie Fisher’s final appearances in the Star Wars saga.

Given that the original reporting in that scene made it sound like one such scene would be in The Last Jedi, and the other in Episode IX (which we now know Fisher will not be part of), this rumor seems to imply that the other scene—Leia’s reunion with her brother Luke—may tragically never occur. However, given that the original source of Nerdist’s report is a contextless Reddit user’s alleged dump of the first act of the film, it’s best to treat this all with a pinch of salt.

The Crow

Current producer and former director F. Javier Gutiérrez spoke to Forbes about the current, R-rated state of troubled Crow reboot.

With The Crow, I haven’t talked to them in a while so I don’t know what is going on with that, but we are going to do an R-rated movie. I come from Europe, I’m very dark so I’m going to go for it. If any movie has to be R-rated then it’s The Crow. That’s how I got James O’Barr, the creator of The Crow, involved in the project because he said that if R-rated is the way that I wanted to go, he’s in. Even though I’m not directing it now, when I was going to be doing that I explained to the producers that they had to read and understand the comic book and not make the film a PG-13 version because it would make no sense. Some movies are for young people, I get it and maybe you can do it, but this movie is not necessarily for those young people and toning it down would give you a ghost of what The Crow should be.
