Morning SpoilersIf there’s news about upcoming movies and television you’re not supposed to know, you’ll find it in here.

A familiar face could make an appearance in Wonder Woman 1984. There’s more rumors about the villains of Spider-Man: Far From Home. Karl Urban hypes up the hypothetical Quentin Tarantino Star Trek. Plus, It: Chapter 2 set photos recreate an iconic moment from the book, and a look at The Gifted’s return. To me, my spoilers!


Wonder Woman 1984

Continuing a trend, according to Net-A-Porter, Robin Wright is slated to reprise her role as Antiope for a flashback scene in Wonder Woman 1984.

Spider-Man: Far From Home

MCU Cosmic reports one of the film’s tie-in Lego sets will include a Molten Man minigifure, possibly indicating the old school Spidey villain is slated to make a cameo alongside Hydro-Man in Spider-Man: Far From Home.



That Hashtag Show has word Marc Maron is set to play “the longtime producer of [Robert] De Niro’s talk show host character” in the mysterious Joker solo film.

Star Trek 4

Speaking with USA Today, John Cho stated knows “very little” about the fourth Star Trek movie.

I know very little about this. I’ve heard we’re going to do one. But beyond that, I don’t have details. I’d rather not know; I don’t want to lie. The boring answer is to wait for the powers that be to make a decision.


Quentin Tarantino’s Star Trek

Elsewhere, Karl Urban revealed Quentin Tarantino’s “bananas” idea for a Star Trek movie will need an R-rating to properly depict “the horror of space.”

Quentin Tarantino went in to J.J. [Abrams]’s offices and pitched him an idea for a Star Trek movie. I know a little bit about what that is and it’s bananas... You shouldn’t worry that it is going to be full of obscenity and stuff. He wants an R-rating to really make those beats of consequence land. If it’s not PG, if someone gets sucked out into space, which we have all seen before, we might see them get disemboweled first… It allows some some breadth… gives him some leeway to do that. To me, that was always one of the things I loved about what DeForest Kelley did. He would actually capture the horror of space. That look in his eyes of sheer terror always struck me when I was a kid.

Dennard will co-executive produce with Lisa Henson and Halle Stanford.



Geoff Johns confirmed both S.T.R.I.P.E. and the Justice Society of America will appear in DC Universe’s Stargirl series.

Much like, you know, Arrow reimagining Green Arrow or Smallville, I’m taking a brand new direction on Justice Society. It’ll be, I think, more closer to the lore. I wanted to kind of do a brand new reimagining of it for Stargirl.

You can’t do Stargirl without S.T.R.I.P.E. Yeah, he’s in there.



Episode 5 of the next season is titled, “The Demon,” according to Spoiler TV.
