The Suicide Squad

During a recent panel at Fan Expo Canada 2019, Peter Capaldi revealed his Suicide Squad character is “completely bald” because “they had to do some prosthetics.” Revising my previous sentiments: PETER CAPALDI FOR KING SHARK.

I hope it’s going to come back. No, it’s for — I can’t — you know, at the moment I can’t tell you, not because I don’t want to tell you, but because I’m not allowed to tell you — but I’m going to be completely bald. So — and I said — so, they started it because they had to do some prosthetics. So, they had to take my hair back as much [as possible] and I said, “Could you leave a little bit? Because I’m going to Toronto.” So, they left a little bit and we did some head casts, and stuff. And then I came here, so that’s why. But when I go home, it’s going to go again. All the way.

The Eternals

Speaking with GQ Britain, Richard Madden teased “there’s some more actors yet to be announced” for The Eternals “which is gonna be crazy.”



The Witches

Bloody-Disgusting has the official synopsis for Robert Zemeckis’s recently-wrapped remake of The Witches starring Anne Hathaway.

Zemeckis’s “visually innovative” The Witches tells the darkly humorous and heartwarming tale of a young orphaned boy (Jahzir Kadeem Bruno) who, in late 1967, goes to live with his loving Grandma (Octavia Spencer) in the rural Alabama town of Demopolis. The boy and his grandmother come across some deceptively glamorous but thoroughly diabolical witches, so Grandma wisely whisks our young hero away to an opulent seaside resort. Regrettably, they arrive at precisely the same time that the world’s Grand High Witch (Hathaway) has gathered her fellow cronies from around the globe—undercover—to carry out her nefarious plans.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jon Favreau suggested The Mandalorian will explore in part how the First Order could rise in the undercurrent of the New Republic’s fledgling rule.

...what could happen in the 30 years between celebrating the defeat of the Empire and then the First Order? You come in on Episode VII, [the First Order are] not just starting out. They’re pretty far along… So somehow, things weren’t necessarily managed as well as they could have been if [the galaxy] ended up in hot water again like that.
