The Matrix 4

In a recent interview with Comic Book, Jessica Henwick stated Lana Wachowski is “going to change the industry again” with The Matrix 4.

There are definitely moment on set where Yahya [Abdul-Mateen II] and I look at each other and we just go, ‘Matrix 4.’ Those pinch me moments. Yeah. Lana is doing some really interesting things on a technical level in the same way that you know, she created a style back then. I think she’s going to change the industry again with this film. There’s some camera rigs that I’ve never seen before that we’re using. That’s probably all I can say for that.

The Boys

Ina recent interview with Collider, Antony Starr revealed Homelander becomes a full-fledged “homicidal maniac” in the third season of The Boys.

There are two words that Eric [Kripke] has said to me about Season 3. His description for Homelander Season 3 was, ‘Two words, homicidal maniac.’ That’s all I know.

I’m actually looking forward to seeing Homelander off the leash. It’ll be really fun, just seeing him go unhinged and exact revenge. If you look at the end of Season 2, some people should be more scared than others, for sure. William Butcher should always have an alarm bell ringing in his head, and I think some other people have firmly put themselves in the line of fire for season 3. It should be a lot of fun.
