Ryan Gosling confirms he’s a part of Blade Runner 2. Check out a weird and wonderful new alien from The Force Awakens. Ezra Miller talks about what he wants from Barry Allen in The Flash. Plus, Agent Carter gets a return date, and David Tennant chills in the first clips from Jessica Jones. To Me, My Spoilers!
Following yesterday’s reveal of Chris Pine in costume as Steve Trevor, speculation has emerged that the old-timey clothing could mean the movie is taking a similar approach to the classic Wonder Woman TV series—that across the centuries-spanning story, Pine will play both a modern-day Trevor and his older grandfather in scenes set during the First World War.

As well as accidentally leaking images from the set, actor Saïd Taghmaoui has been talking to the media about his role—and according to an interview with French magazine Ultra (translated, so it may not be 100% accurate), he’ll be playing a “good” superhero:
I’ll be playing a superhero, but details are still under wraps. I can’t tell you much.
Taghmaoui was also wearing a period costume in the picture he shared on social media, so there’s no clear identity as to who he’s actually playing yet—but he might have a larger role in the film than previously thought. [Batman News]
Blade Runner 2
Speaking to Collider at a press junket for The Big Short, Ryan Gosling has confirmed the long standing rumors that he will be involved with the film.
The Flash (Movie)
Ezra Miller expresses his hope for playing Barry Allen in the film:
Well, [first] it’s going to be a movie, I’d like for it to be an exploration of a human being, a multi-dimensional human being, to speak…Wow, I just made such a pun, without meaning to….I’d like the character to have many dimensions. But really, I’d like him to have the usual dimensions we know and love, and then some extra ones that are part of the amazing consideration of this superhero. I hope to realize him as a person, and I think what’s most exciting for me in superhero mythologies is when we feel the humanity of someone who is heroic — or the heroism of someone who is a flawed, deeply human person.
Michael Giacchino will score the film, his first contribution to a Disney animated movie. [/Film]
