The third Wolverine movie may have found its villains. Wesley Snipes is up for more Blade. Robert Kirkman discusses the fear of Outcast and whether or not Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead will ever cross over. Plus, new footage from Warcraft and X-Men Apocalypse. Spoilers Now!
Sources speaking to Nerdist allege that the film’s antagonists will be the Reavers, a team of criminal cyborgs from the comics who have had a long grudge with the X-Men, especially Wolverine. There’s also speculation as to who will be controlling the Reavers in this movie—in the comics, they are most commonly allied with the half-cyborg Donald Pierce.
Wesley Snipes claims he’s up for another Blade movie:
Mark Ruffalo told Entertainment Tonight at the Now You See Me 2 junket in New York the film is not what you might expect from Thor 3:
It’s an intergalactic buddy road movie with Banner and Thor. I think it will be smashing. You’ll see a lot more Hulk. The Hulk gets Hulk-ier. The Hulk Hulks out. Hulk-ier and bigger.
He also spoke about Cate Blanchett’s character, the villainous Hela:
She plays the worst of the worst. So evil. She is going to kill us. It’s such a great part she gets to play.
Meanwhile, Karl Urban discusses his character, Skurge:
I read a fantastic script that was action-packed and full of great characters. When I heard who was involved — and the cast list dropped yesterday — and [saw] the opportunity to work with [director] Taika Waititi, who I think is one of the most brilliant directors coming through, I made the decision it was something that I wanted to be a part of. And the character is fantastic. He’s got a great arc to him. Obviously I can’t say too much about it, but I’m really thrilled to be a part of the Marvel universe and to be working on Thor: Ragnarok.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss revealed that after the show surpassed the pace of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels, the author told them three “holy shit” moments that would form the future parts of the story (and thus the show). The first two have been seen—Shireen’s death and the revelation of Hodor’s origin story—but the final moment is apparently the very end of the entire series. However, beyond elements like this and the basic threads, Benioff says the show and the books will quite different:
People are talking about whether the books are going to be spoiled – and it’s really not true. So much of what we’re doing diverges from the books at this point. And while there are certain key elements that will be the same, we’re not going to talk so much about that – and I don’t think George is either. People are going to be very surprised when they read the books after the show. They’re quite divergent in so many respects for the remainder of the show.
Robert Kirkman told EW his new show is scarier than The Walking Dead:
It’s not a road show like ‘The Walking Dead. There’s not a lot of traveling or things like that. The town of Rome, West Virginia, is very much its own character in the show, and the community that’s built there is kind of what makes it so terrifying to think about all these people that know each other’s secrets, But there’s this element in this town that is changing them, that’s making them different people, that’s making them a threat. Your friends and neighbors and loved ones can be your greatest enemy at the turn of a dime, and it’s not because they’re mindless monsters — they’re a cunning, manipulative, very dangerous creature that is suddenly in your midst. It’s a scarier show.
Robert Kirman says a crossover between the two shows is probably very very unlikely:
We’re already on season seven and this one’s on season two and that would be crazy. As far as if those characters will ever encounter each other, I mean, they’re in the same universe so it’s completely possible. Geographically, they’re no where near each other so it would be somewhat farfetched if group A were to somehow encounter group B unless over the course of many, many, many, many seasons somehow it made sense.
