Get a look at Stephanie Beatriz’s new Lego Movie 2 villain. Evan Peters teases the dramatic struggles of Dark Phoenix. Purported audition reels for Doom Patrol tease a very sweary version of Cyborg. Plus, bad news for Shadowhunters, new footage from Ant-Man and The Wasp, and what’s to come on Supergirl’s finale. Spoilers!
Speaking with Vulture, Noah Hawley revealed he’s written a script for his solo Doctor Doom movie both he and the studio “really like” — however, his work on Pale Blue Dot leaves the project in current limbo.
I wrote a script that I really like and the studio really likes. It needs a little work. It’s hard for me, at this exact moment — because I start shooting another movie in five weeks — to do that work. So, I mean, my hope is to go back to [the Doom movie] after [Pale Blue Dot].”
Paramount and Bad Robot are teaming up to produce a mysterious new sci-fi film titled Aporia, based on a spec script from Jared Moshe (The Ballad of Lefty Brown) who is also attached to direct. Described as “a grounded sci-fi drama with time-travel elements,” no furthers details on the film’s plot have been released, though the title refers to a sort of philosophical puzzle with no clear answer.

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part
Deadline reports Stephanie Beatriz has joined the cast of The LEGO Movie 2 as the voice of a new character named Sweet Mayhem. Arturo Castro has also joined as the voice of a talking ice cream cone. The outlet also confirms both Alison Brie and Nick Offerman will reprise their roles as Unikitty and Metal Beard, respectively.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix
In a recent interview with Den Of Geek, Evan Peters stated Dark Phoenix is a “serious film” about Jean Grey’s inner struggle.
I think the title kind of says it all: it’s a little bit darker and it’s a little bit more of a drama. It’s really about Phoenix and Jean’s inner-struggle and how that pans out, and who your real friends are. Who’s helping you through these difficult times? So it’s really about that and it’s about the X-Men family, and I think it’s a serious film.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3
In a recent Facebook thread, James Gunn revealed he’s currently writing the third Guardians of the Galaxy movie, which he promises will be “very, very, very different.”
It’s very, very, very different. Very different, but I won’t say how! You’ll have to wait to see the movie, it’s a long time away.”
