michael sheen and david tennant cast in good omens

The Apocalypse is looking pretty good right now.

Michael Sheen and David Tennant have been cast in the Amazon TV series Good Omens, the adaptation of Neil Gaiman‘s whimsical, and very British, apocalyptic comedy. It’s some inspired casting that bodes well for the adaptation of another Gaiman work, who is on a roll right now after American Gods. A good omen for the show, you might say.

Quantum and Woody Joel McHale

While the Russo Brothers are undertaking the gargantuan task of directing two Avengers movies back to back (it’s practically three, if you count Captain America: Civil War), they’re looking ahead to what will happen after the cinematic battle between Thanos and Earth’s mightiest heroes. The pair haven’t officially signed on for more Marvel Studios films yet, but they’re ramping up development on a series of movies and TV shows that they’ll produce in the years to come.

One of them is a TV adaptation of the Valiant comic series Quantum and Woody, and a new report indicates that Joel McHale (Community) is now in talks to star in one of the show’s two lead roles. Judging from the character description, he’s a perfect choice for this property.

Thor Ragnarok Photos

Update: We have added the wild new international poster for Thor: Ragnarok below.

The buzz around Thor: Ragnarok has been high ever since the latest trailer debuted at San Diego Comic-Con last month. In fact, the Marvel Studios sequel has been on top of the social media buzz charts for three weeks in a row. That’s impressive for a movie that doesn’t hit theaters until November.

Now the Thor: Ragnarok hype train keeps on rolling with a batch of new images debuting online, showing off the God of Thunder (Chris Hemsworth), both before and after the new haircut given to him by the people of Sakaar. Plus, there are new shots of Jeff Goldblum as The Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie and Idris Elba as Heimdall.

Along with the new photos, there seems to be confirmation of a certain cast member from the first two installments of the Thor franchise is returning for a third round. See the new Thor Ragnarok photos and find out more about this latest casting confirmation below. Read More »

Josh Brolin Turned Down Avatar

Not only is director James Cameron being quite ambitious by planning four Avatar sequels that are being shot back-to-back, but he’s making some surprising choices for his cast.

While it was expected that Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana would reprise their roles as Jake Sully, in his Na-vi avatar body, and the Pandora native Neytiri, we’ve since learned that in addition to Sigourney Weaver returning as a new character, the deceased villains played by Stephen Lang and Matt Gerald will somehow be coming back as the same characters. But that doesn’t mean James Cameron didn’t try to bring some new blood in for these movies.

No Country for Old Men and Avengers: Infinity War star Josh Brolin was offered a role in the Avatar sequels, but the actor wasn’t interested, so he turned down the part. That apparently did not sit well with James Cameron. Welcome to your new favorite celebrity feud. Read More »
