Could we really get a sequel to The Iron Giant? Lucy Lawless discusses her Ash vs Evil Dead character. An unlikely character will take the lead in STAR Labs on The Flash. Plus, set footage from The Force Awakens, and more teases for Maisie William’s Doctor Who character. To me, my spoilers!
Captain America: Civil War
Josh Brolin basically says that Thanos will not be showing up for the big Marvel Studios dust-up film:
I don’t know which one I’m in. That’s a Kevin Feige question. I know the trajectory of what they’re doing, but I don’t know exactly which one I’m in.
Iron Giant 2
Vin Diesel teases the opportunity for a followup to the animated classic:
Don’t be surprised when you hear WB announce the sequel.
Star Wars: Rogue One
A rumor is circulating that the film will use the Ultra Panavision Anamporphic 70mm cameras first designed for The Hateful Eight, giving the film a huge aspect ratio of 2.76:1. [Rebels Report]
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
RPF Pulse has a behind the scenes video from filming in Abu Dhabi, offering a blurry (and largely uneventful) look at a scene where Finn and Rey are on the run from the First Order on Jakku. It doesn’t really reveal anything, but there are a few indistinct glimpses at stormtroopers and explosions.
Interstellar and SPECTRE cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema may have been hired to be the cinematographer for Wonder Woman. [Superman Spoilers]
Ubisoft have confirmed that Michael Fassbender’s characters of Callum/Aguilar will have their place in the canonical timeline of the video game franchise, rather than a straight adaptation of any one of the Assassin’s Creed video games. [Coming Soon]
Michael B. Jordan has been attached to a film adaptation of the IDW comic about two vampire friends who fall out with each other as a madman tries to bring about the apocalypse. [CBR]
Ash vs Evil Dead
Lucy Lawless briefly discusses her character, Ruby—confirming that she is the daughter of original movie character Professor Knowby:
She’s a badass bitch and she’s stalking Ash Williams with a big chip on her shoulder, and a hot obsession. … She believes he’s responsible for the Deadite plague, and in my mind responsible, speaking as my character, for the death of my father back when – Professor Knowby back in the “Evil Dead” movies. He was the holder of the Necronomicon, so she has an ancient chip on her shoulder.
Fear The Walking Dead
Lincoln A. Castellanos teases what’s in store for Tobias in the show’s future:
I have my ideas of where Tobias could go (from after the pilot). Certainly, there is great potential for for him to evolve, both psychologically and physically, and many other ways. But perhaps I should hold off on answering that in more detail….things could get a little scary for me (and Madison) in this next episode.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Producer Andrew Kreisberg says that in the show’s second season, Team Flash will no longer be led by Harrison Wells/Eobard Thawne, but instead the unlikely option of Iris West:
Iris slides into [the role] very naturally. She’s a born leader. One of the best things in the premiere is Barry decides that he wants to work alone because he doesn’t want to risk anyone else’s lives, and Iris is really the one who gets the band back together again. She’s the only one who can stand up to Barry.
Here’s a brief new teaser for the show, revealing Barry with blue-tinted speedforce powers:
CBS have ordered a third season for the Historical Fantasy series, totalling 18 episodes. [Spoiler TV]
American Horror Story: Hotel
Ryan Murphy is contemplating splitting the next season of the franchise into two smaller series:
Next year we might do a fall American Horror Story and a spring. We have to decide.
A few new cast photos have been released—find more at the link. [Spoiler TV]
Set pictures from the second season of the show seemingly hint at some intimacy between Karen Page and Matt Murdock—rather than the perhaps expected dalliances between Matt and the incoming Elektra Natchios:
Finally, Steven Moffat and producer Brian Minchin briefly tease Maisie Williams’ upcoming role on the show:
