The mid-season finale of The Walking Dead is nigh! The Flash adds a classic DC Comics character while another invites the Legends to the big Crisis. Plus updates from His Dark Materials, The Boys, and more. Spoilers away!
Appearing as a guest on Adam Carolla’s podcast, T.J. Miller revealed he’s “under contract” to reprise his role as Wade Wilson’s friend, Weasel, in a third Deadpool movie if Disney wants him to.
Of course, if they want me to do Deadpool 3, I’m going to. I’m under contract.
To be honest, I’d almost would rather that they didn’t. I think Deadpool 2, we knocked it out of the park. I really think it ended up being great and I was worried about that. So what if Deadpool 3 is… eh.
The Suicide Squad
Speaking with Variety, Margot Robbie promised James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad is “going to be very, very good.”
You’re going to be laughing a lot. It’s going to be good is all I can say for now. It’s going to be very, very good.
Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn
In the same article, Robbie described Birds of Prey as a “poppy” and “bonkers” film told entirely from Harley Quinn’s point of view.
The story in Birds of Prey is told from her point of view, so you have an insight into Harley’s world in a way that you didn’t in the first Suicide Squad film, nor that you’ll have in the next Suicide Squad film. It’s a little bonkers. It reflects her personality. It’s heightened. It’s poppy, it’s fun, it’s violent, it’s crazy. It’s absurd. It’s kooky. It’s hilarious. It’s a little heartbreaking.
A young boy faces off against a 1,000 year-old witch who emerges from a deer carcass in the trailer for IFC Midnight’s The Wretched.
TV Line reports Natalie Dreyfuss has been cast as the Elongated Man’s future wife, Sue Dearbon. Described as “possessing a fierce intelligence and a spitfire personality” the character is “daughter to one of Central City’s most wealthy families. But there’s much more to Sue than just the socialite reputation that always precedes her, which master detective Ralph will discover when they finally meet later during Season 6.”
American Horror Story
In a recent interview with Deadline, Ryan Murphy teased American Horror Story’s tenth season may include several returning “fan-favorite actors” as it “might be our last.”
We’re working on an idea for season 10 that I think people will love because it’s about reuniting fan-favorite actors to come back — because it might be our last season.
It’s the last season we have contracted. So, I’ve been quietly reaching out to various people. Some people I haven’t reached out to yet because I was like ‘Do I have a role for them?’ So far, everybody I reached out to said ‘Yes’, so that’s been great.”
We’re in the middle of negotiations about beyond season 10. We have had conversations about the show going 20 seasons. If [FX’s John Landgraf] for some reason said, ‘We don’t want to make this anymore’, would I call up Netflix? Yes. But he’s only ever expressed love and enthusiasm and he wants to keep it going. I have every good intention of it staying there and I think he does too. We’re talking about it. We’re trying to figure it out.
