new han solo actor

When Lucasfilm announced earlier this month that Alden Ehrenreich would lead the Han Solo anthology film, they were just confirming what fans already knew — the trades had revealed the casting months ago. But not every report and rumor pans out so nicely. For example, there’s been a lot of speculation that Ehrenreich’s Han Solo could cameo in this winter’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. However, director Gareth Edwards has gone on the record to shut down the rumors.

Meanwhile, over at Warner Bros., Suicide Squad director David Ayer is battling a pesky and persistent fan theory of his own. Many have wondered if Jared Leto‘s Joker could be Jason Todd, whose defaced costume was seen in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but Ayer insists that’s not the case.  Read More »

Rick and Morty Meeseeks

Adult Swim’s sci-fi comedy Rick and Morty had a panel at San Diego Comic-Con. We spoke with the show’s creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon along with writer Ryan Ridley in a roundtable interview. In only two seasons, Rick and Morty has established a sub-franchise within the show, with two episodes of “Interdimensional Cable.” They said a third episode is possible, but also tease a season three episode that could launch a different recurring element.

“Possibly, yeah, we’re figuring it out,” Roiland said. “It’s very rough on production. It’s not an easy episode to make.We’re introducing something amazing we can’t say much about, but there’s probably room for both ultimately. I’d be down to do it. The connective tissue has to be different and Ridley’s got a really good pitch that [Harmon] hasn’t heard yet so we’re not going to talk about it here. It’s spoiler alert territory.”  Read More »

Black Panther Plot Details

Black Panther will start production in January. However, all we know for sure is that Creed director Ryan Coogler will be at the helm with Chadwick Boseman as the title superhero, Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead) as the head of the Dora Milaje (a security force that protects the King of Wakanda), Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia (one of the members of the Dora Milaje), and Michael B. Jordan as villain Erik Killmonger. But that changes today as one of those co-stars revealed some plot details.

While participating in some quick interviews at Comic-Con this past weekend, Lupita Nyong’o let slip some basic Black Panther plot details, including a revelation that the film has two villains. Get the details after the jump. Read More »

rocket raccoon and groot

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was one of the big winners out of Comic-Con 2016, with James Gunn’s upcoming sequel headlining Marvel Studios’ panel and going all-out with new footage and big revelations. At this point, it’s getting hard to believe that this group of characters were considered obscure just a few years ago. There are going to be kids growing up who hold the likes of Star-Lord and Drax in the same esteem as Spider-Man and Wolverine. That’s nuts.

You could feel the reverberations of Guardians of the Galaxy‘s success beyond Hall H, like at the Marvel Animation panel. Although the panel teased the new seasons of the company’s various shows and announced a new Hulk/Doctor Strange team-up movie, they also revealed a new series of animated shorts built around Rocket Raccoon and Groot. And you can watch the animation test that screened at the panel right now.

Split Trailer

After stumbling in the film world for some years, director M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, Signs) made a decent comeback with the suspenseful thriller The Visit last year. Now he’s back behind the camera again for another unsettling thriller called Split starring James McAvoy (X-Men: Apocalypse), and the trailer has just debuted online.

Split starts off like your average kidnapping thriller with James McAvoy abducting three young girls and taking them to a dark basement. But the kidnapping is just the beginning of the creepiness that ensues as they learn that this man has some serious mental problems that make their imprisonment that much more horrifying. Watch the Split trailer after the jump. Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Comic-Con Panel

There’s no doubt you’ve already heard about the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 footage that was shown at Comic-Con (and won’t be released online anytime soon). We did our best to recap everything that was shown, including the confirmation of Kurt Russell playing Star-Lord’s father and a cameo from Sylvester Stallone in some kind of key role. But if that wasn’t enough, director James Gunn also took the time to elaborate on some of the secrets and details that were revealed in the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Comic-Con panel and footage.

Find out what James Gunn had to say about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 after the jump. Read More »

Supergirl

Supergirl moves to The CW this fall but it was business as usual for the show at Comic-Con. The cast and producers gave a panel along with the other DC Comics shows Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow, and we spoke with producer Sarah Schechter in a roundtable interview. After keeping Superman mostly off screen in season one, they have cast Tyler Hoechlin as Kal-El/Clark Kent. Schechter described his role on Supergirl and the interpretation of his iconic look we will see.

“Part of it was in season one we wanted to really just establish Kara,” Schechter said. “A lot of what we do on these shows is comedy, action, drama and family. It’s the family you’re given, it’s the family you choose. Kara had to really choose a family and build a family here. Clark is the one part of her family that’s still alive, now that Laura Benanti is playing Melania Trump. It’s a way to learn more about Kara. Tyler is amazing. I’ve seen him in the suit and it’s very cool. You see it and you’re like oh, Greg Berlanti and I went to a costume fitting the other day and we were a little speechless. It’s our costume designer who came up under Colleen [Atwood] but it’s working off of Colleen’s design for the Supergirl suit.”  Read More »
