Judge Dredd Still Image

This is the week that officially killed all of those sequels the internet has been demanding. With Hellboy 3 officially thrown to the wayside in favor of an R-rated reboot, it only makes sense that the Dredd sequel is also looking officially dead and buried. However, fans of the character may take comfort in knowing that the hard-ass future cop with that face-obscuring helmet and a thirst for justice/violence is only abandoning the big screen because he’s heading to the small screen.

Yes, a Judge Dredd live-action TV show is in the works.

sigourney weaver leader of the hand

There are few details surrounding Sigourney Weaver‘s Big Bad in the upcoming Marvel/Netflix miniseries The Defenders, other than her name is Alexandra and she has a team of mean-looking thugs in suits at her disposal.

“The more connections you have, the easier it will be to break you,” Alexandra menacingly says in The Defenders trailer, supposedly to the team of streetwise superheroes, Matt Murdock, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Danny Rand. But we may have confirmation of who she is and how she’s connected to supervillain organization, The Hand.

Marvel Cinematic Universe Ranked

It’s become a tradition at this point: whenever a new entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is released, everyone ranks the movies.

Elizabeth Debicki in Guardians of the Galaxy 3

Though Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 just opened, fans are already looking forward to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Details are sparse on the sequel since we’re still three years away from it hitting theaters, but we do know that it will help set up the next 10 years of movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now, thanks to writer/director James Gunn, we have word on a new character from Vol. 2 who will be back for the sequel that is said to conclude the story for this iteration of the team.

In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Elizabeth Debicki plays Ayesha, the Golden High Priestess of the Sovereign who leads a pursuit to track down and destroy the titular crew after Rocket Raccoon steals some of their valuable anulax batteries. It turns out she’ll be back in the next installment of the franchise, and thanks to one of the credits scenes, we probably know what she’ll be up to. Since that delves into spoiler territory, we’ll save that discussion for below…

hellboy reboot

Update: According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Borys Kit, the Hellboy reboot could be coming sooner than expected. We’ve added the information below.

Guillermo del Toro‘s Hellboy films are two of the best comic book movies ever made…even if they rarely feel anything like the source material. While they were made with the full blessing of creator Mike Mignola, Hellboy and Hellboy II: The Golden Army are del Toro movies through and through, often discarding the tone of the original Dark Horse comics so the filmmaker (one of the great creative minds alive today) could follow his muse.

And while Hellboy 3 is officially dead and buried and never getting made, the character may very well return to the big screen – a Mignola-sanctioned reboot is currently in the works with very interesting director and a very interesting actor both attached. The news that Hellboy is getting rebooted isn’t surprising. This is Hollywood’s modus operandi. The real news here is that the talent currently attached to the Hellboy reboot seem like picks that will result in a movie more in line with the original comics.

jeff goldblum thor ragnarok

The best thing about reading a Jeff Goldblum interview is that it’s so explicitly Goldblum that you can practically hear him talking and guffawing in your ear.

More so than the tidbits he teases about Thor: Ragnarok his first venture into superhero territory or the fact that he’s returning to the dinosaur franchise that he helped make famous as Dr. Ian Malcolm, are the hilarious Goldblum-esque quirks throughout this new interview. He calls the Jurassic Park series “dino-entertainment!” He rates directors on a scale of himself! It’s fortuitous that Ragnarok director Taika Waititi told Goldblum to be as Goldblum as possible in his portrayal of the Grandmaster. I hope he never changes.
