An absolutely insane rumor claims Beyoncé wants in on The Avengers. Has the purported Legend of Zelda show found a new home? Plus, Rob Liefield talks Deadpool, denials over the alleged Hawkgirl TV series, and some new art from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. To me, my Spoilers!
Following some recent interviews from Mark Ruffalo about the status of a Hulk Film, Forbes Contributor Mark Hughes has some clarification on the current rights for a Hulk movie: Apparently, Marvel owns the rights to make a Hulk movie, but Universal holds the rights to distribute a Marvel-made Hulk movie—more specifically the right to have first choice and refusal of distribution.
This deal would not stop Marvel from making a Hulk film (in fact, a similar deal saw Paramount distribute Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Captain America: The First Avenger, and Thor), despite what Ruffalo said recently. So there is potential for the character to get a movie at some point in the MCU’s future, as long as Marvel is willing to give a slice of the pie.
Rob Liefeld discusses the tone of the film:
Deadpool’s pretty hardcore; it’s pretty awesome. When I first read it, I thought ‘This is the voice of Tarantino in a comic book movie,’ which is perfect because Deadpool is more crime-oriented, action-oriented, obviously, and Tarantino has got a great sense of humor.
Now here’s a ridiculous/fun rumor. UK tabloid The Daily Star (so already, salt shaker at the ready) claims that Marvel is looking for a role for music star Beyoncé in a future Avengers movie. Roles being floated around are obscure comics characters Boom-Boom, Tigra, Blink... and Hawkeye. Yes, that one.
Suffice to say, this is perhaps a rumor that’s not to be taken entirely seriously.

Ashley Eckstein discusses playing an older Ahsoka Tano:
Ahsoka has definitely changed. She’s about 15 years older. She’s been through a lot. We still don’t know where she’s been and what she’s been doing. But now, she is in more of the mentor role, the teacher role. She’s the leader. She’s the one in charge. So that’s different. I mean, she was the Ezra of “Clone Wars,” and now she’s coming back as more of like the Obi-Wan or the Yoda. And it’s a different role for her.
The purported video game adaptation (that Nintendo has since denied having existed) allegedly has a new home at Amazon, with a pilot filming this summer for the next batch of Pilots from the series. As ever with sourced rumors, take it with a pinch of salt. [Season Zero]
