HBO is teasing us once again, this time with Game of Thrones, Watchmen, and His Dark Materials. Sylvester Stallone is working on a non-Marvel or DC superhero movie. Alex Kingston teases River Song’s potential with the new Doctor. Plus new looks at Captain Marvel, Doom Patrol and more. Watch out, spoilers have a case of the Mondays.
Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn
New set photos from Hollywood Pipeline see the Huntress wrapped in chains and Harley Quinn carrying a large bag of dog food— possibly indicating an appearance from her pet hyenas, Bud and Lou.
THR also has word the upcoming video game satire starring Ryan Reynolds hits theaters July 3, 2020. They report says “revolves around a background character who realizes he’s living in a video game. With the help of an avatar, he tries to prevent the makers of the game from shutting down his world.”
Jay & Silent Bob Reboot
Appearing as a guest on The Mike Calta Radio Show, Kevin Smith revealed his latest Jay & Silent Bob film will see release in the fall.
Oh listen, no, I think we’re out in the fall. Yeah, it’s a quick turnaround.
Meanwhile, MGM has acquired the rights to Samaritan, Sylvester Stallone’s “dark, fresh take on the superhero genre” from screenwriter Bragi F. Schut.
The Lion King
A new promo (very similar to the first except perhaps with updated VFX) for Jon Favreau’s The Lion King aired last night during the Oscars.
There’s also a new poster which gives us our first look at Mufasa.
Captain Marvel spars with Yon-Rogg in the latest clip.
Deadline reports Amy Smart, Trae Romano, Neil Jackson, Hunter Sansone, and Cameron Gellman have joined the cast of DC Universe’s Stargirl as series regulars. Smart will play Courtney’s mother, Barbara Whitmore, while Romano has been cast as Mike Dugan, the family’s “unctuous new step-relative.” Jackson, Sansone, and Gellman’s characters are currently undisclosed.
Josh Gad has joined Armando Iannucci’s upcoming sci-fi comedy as Herman Judd, “the billionaire face and name behind Avenue 5 and the whole Judd brand, which includes hotels, fitness clubs and space tourism. Judd is used to a life of luxury. He made his money from holiday resorts and thinks he’s good at everything else. Terrible at science, he leaves that to the scientists he employs to give him the answers he wants.”
Alex Kingston discussed the possibility of reprising her role as River Song in a recent interview with The Radio Times.
Yeah I did meet [Jodie Whittaker]. We chatted about me coming back to Doctor Who! I love the character, and I think that, my gosh, there are wonderful potential opportunities down the road. But it’s not my decision. The fact is, because they’re all the same person ultimately, I don’t think she would think of her any differently to any of the others in a way. Because they’re the same spirit inside. It’s just a different, deep love. And you know, technically the Doctor is River’s second wife. Cleopatra being the first.
According to Deadline, production has been delayed on Wynonna Earp’s fourth season due to “financial difficulties” at IDW Entertainment.
