The Invisible Man
Elisabeth Moss is currently in talks to star in Leigh Whannell’s remake of The Invisible Man for Warner Bros. Variety says, “Sources also indicate that Johnny Depp, who was originally tapped to play the title character, will not be involved.” The Dark Universe...sort of not really lives?
A new report from That Hashtag Show alleges that Marvel is looking to cast “an openly gay male” actor between the ages of 30-49, who “physically looks like a superhero” for one of the film’s lead roles.
Guillermo del Toro is slated to write and direct an original film titled Zanbato for J.J. Abrams and Bad Robot. According to Collider, the film centers around “a young girl (between 10-15) with lethal fighting skills” — however, the report inspired del Toro himself to clarify on Twitter that the film is “not a ninja project,” adding, “But...there are ninjas in it.”
Captain Marvel 2
Speaking with Screen Rant, Kevin Feige stated Marvel’s ideas for a potential sequel have been “pretty amazing.”
The making of a first film is in some ways a brainstorm on the future and on what can be. So what it will be again is not clear. But what it could be is pretty amazing.
