Todd McFarlane is having Spawn drama. James Cameron is excited for the next chapter of the Terminator franchise. Stranger Things’ David Harbour is hyping us up for season three. Plus new looks at iZombie and Cloak & Dagger’s next episodes and...cats? Spoilers meow!
Appearing as a recent guest on The Fanboy Podcast, screenwriter Zack Stentz revealed he’s completed his script for a Booster Gold solo movie and is now waiting to hear back from DC/Warner Bros.
I do not know what’s going on with it right now, honestly. And I don’t know if the DC people know what’s going on with it. Their strategy seems to change depending on how […] most recent movie did. But I can tell you that a script has been turned in that the director and producer, Greg Berlanti, has proclaimed himself to be very happy with. And it’s something that’s ready to go, but DC and Warner Bros. would need to give the greenlight to it. The ball is in their court.
We’ve heard a lot of different things about this project over the last few years but let’s hope with the success of Shazam, WB is finally ready to move forward and give Michael Jon Carter the spotlight.
Meanwhile, Todd McFarlane has threatened to “walk away” from his much-ballyhooed Spawn movie if investors pressure him to change his script too much.
The money’s sitting on the sidelines ready to go. I just need to get everyone that wants to put in money to shake their heads to the same script. As you can imagine, everyone has a slightly different version of it in their head. You just go and trying to appease a handful of people while not giving in to what it is that I’m trying to do myself. Because if I have to change it too much, I’ll just walk away from it all.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, David Harbour revealed Sheriff Hopper will do “a lot of really big action-y things” in the show’s third season.
It thrusts him into a discussion with Joyce [Winona Ryder]. She’s able to offer me some advice on how to deal with being a single parent and how to, like, you know, stop being so damn controlling…this season, Hopper does a lot of really big, like, action-y things. But he’s fatter than you’ve ever seen him and less capable of hurting people, but a little more capable because he’s just like a big elephant.
