Fox is moving back their X-Men films, Dark Phoenix and New Mutants. There’s more fuel for the speculative fire about a certain big DC hero cameoing in Shazam. John Noble and Barack Obama (kinda) appear in new pictures from Legends of Tomorrow. Plus, the return of Dad Steve on Stranger Things, and new Infinity War posters. To me, my spoilers!
X-Men: Dark Phoenix/The New Mutants
Fox has announced new, later dates for the two X-movies: Dark Phoenix moves from November this year to Valentine’s Day 2019, while The New Mutants gets a hefty movie from February 2019 to August 2019.
Variety reports Jack Whitehall has joined the cast of Jungle Cruise in the “key role” of Emily Blunt’s brother.
Daphne & Velma
Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive trailer for the direct-to-video Daphne & Velma spinoff movie.
Death of Superman
Joining Jerry O’Connell as the voice of Superman are Rebecca Romijn as Lois Lane, Rainn Wilson as Lex Luthor, Jason O’Mara as Batman, Rosario Dawson as Wonder Woman, Matt Lanter as Aquaman, Nathan Fillion as Green Lantern, Christopher Gorham as The Flash, Shemar Moore as Cyborg, Rocky Carroll as Silas Stone and Patrick Fabian as Hank Henshaw.
Kryptonite salt shakers at the ready, but a cryptic tweet from Henry Cavill’s manager may hint at a Superman cameo in Shazam!, as previously rumored.
Elsewhere, the film’s young cast pose next to a statue of Batman.
James Wan took to Twitter for an update of his “filled to the gills” Aquaman movie, and why he’s been “slow...as a sea-slug” in delivering a teaser. Insert fish pun here.

During a panel at Paleyfest, producer Shawn Levy specified season three will be set in 1985, and “won’t be abandoning the Dad Steve magic.”
We’ll definitely get to see some more of Steve Harrington in season three, and I’ll just say we won’t be abandoning the Dad Steve magic. I don’t want to say much more, but I literally feel that we were walking along and we stumbled onto a gold mine with Dad Steve.
Legends of Tomorrow
John Noble guest-stars as himself in April 2nd’s episode, “Guest Starring John Noble.” Head over to TV Line to see the rest.
If that wasn’t enough, we also have a trailer for the episode — which involves the Legends rescuing a teenage Barack Obama from Gorilla Grodd. You know, as you do.
