Jake Gyllenhall sets the record straight about all those Batman rumors. Dwayne Johnson promises even more Jumanji and that Doc Savage movie is still on the way. Plus, what’s to come on Black Lightning’s season finale, and a look at The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead’s big crossover. Spoilers, go!
Jake Gyllenhall denied the long-running rumors that he’s replacing Ben Affleck as Batman in an interview with CNA Lifestyle on Facebook.
Wow, that’s a very difficult question. The answer to that question is ‘no.’
In a recent interview with Collider, Joaquin Phoenix stated he isn’t intimidated to play The Joker, although is still incredibly vague about the mere existence of the film he’s supposedly attached to:
Yeah. I don’t know about that movie or character specifically, but I was thinking about it’s interesting with comics. We were talking, there’s different writers and artists that come on.
It’s different than this character from literature being uniquely that. There are different interpretations. It’s so interesting; I was just thinking about it today, it seems so unique in some ways to comic books. I think there’s probably room for that. Maybe it’s like doing a play, like you always hear about people doing something, “You should have seen this actor in this performance,” but then other actors do it and it’s a different kind of film. I think that genre, comic books, kind of lends itself to having different people play the same character and interpret it in a different way. It’s kind of built into the source material in some ways. I think it’s cool when people do that.
According to Keegan-Michael Key, the recent reshoots on The Predator roughly revised “three-quarters of the third act.”
We just finished (reshoots) last week, and just about three-quarters of the third act was rewritten. And Shane Black is… he’s just a consummate professional, and a consummate writer. He’s a wordsmith! It was a really, really exhilarating experience, and I think that he’s still one of our most vibrant writers of cinema.
Atomic Blonde 2
Meanwhile, Charlize Theron promised IndieWire she’s “working on a sequel” to Atomic Blonde.
Avengers: Infinity War
Avengers: Infinity War has been officially rated PG-13 by the MPAA for “intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action throughout, language, and some crude references.” I wonder what that last one could possibly be?
Dwayne Johnson recently gave Collider an update on the long-rumored Doc Savage film.
That project had a few issues, not creative issues but more so business affairs issues — where the project once was, who had rights to it, where we were trying to move it to. There was a lot of that, which we’re still kind of working through. At the end of the day, [Shane Black’s] such a spectacular writer or director, but whether it’s that project or something else, we’ve made a pact that we’re going to work together at some point in our careers.
Speaking of The Rock, Dwayne Johnson has also confirmed a third Jumanji movie is moving forward in this video posted to the actor’s Instagram.
Actress Milla Jovovich posted a Mike Mignola-illustrated Hellboy/Blood Queen banner hanging on Wilshire Boulevard to her Instagram account.
