Kevin Feige talks de-aging a few characters for Captain Marvel. Reshoots on the new Predator have apparently added a few sneaky references to the past films. Amy Adams is still hoping the Enchanted sequel can happen. Plus, new set footage from Jessica Jones season 3, and a secretive American Horror Story return. Spoilers now!
Birds of Prey
In a recent interview with Flickering Myth, Margot Robbie revealed Birds of Prey will be R-rated and begins filming this January, with a “much smaller budget” than any previous DCEU film. Meanwhile, speaking to Yahoo Movies, Robbie added that she wants a diverse line up of actors to portray the Birds of Prey themselves:
Yep, yes exactly, real life isn’t so one specific image. We’ve got to reflect that onscreen.
Meanwhile, regular spoilerhound Umberto Gonzalez took to Twitter in the wake of Robbie’s comments to say that the movie will allegedly not feature Batgirl—before clarifying that he meant Barbara Gordon will appear in the movie, just not in a costumed hero capacity:
According to Kevin Feige, Samuel L. Jackson will be digitally de-aged twenty five years for the entirety of Captain Marvel.
Without spoiling anything, Sam Jackson is shooting a movie for us right now where he’s entirely 25 years younger the whole movie.
Meanwhile, a set photo from Samuel J. Jackson himself has fans speculating Carol Danvers’ alien pet cat, Chewie, is slated to make an appearance.
