New Batman suit

Debate continues to rage about Warner Bros. plans for their DC properties. We know Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is coming in 2016, and we’re pretty certain Justice League will follow in 2017. Beyond that, rumors of Flash/Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, and Shazam movies and more remain unconfirmed. One thing that has not been mentioned at all is a new Batman movie.

The rumored schedule through 2018 didn’t include a solo Batman film, something that’s a no-brainer for the studio now that Ben Affleck is in the cowl. However, the latest rumor that 2019 is when it will happen. The working title is simply The Batman. Read more about the new Batman movie below.

Vader Palpatine

The biggest fun piece of Star Wars Episode VII speculation this week centered on the villains. Star Wars website MakingStarWars ran an elaborate rumor about the nature of the film’s bad guys, only to have the statement refuted by another site, TheForce.net. The latter said the first rumor was 100% inaccurate… but J.J. Abrams also said Khan wasn’t in Star Trek Into Darkness.

Which is why, at this point in the game, it’s hard to take anything as true. Even quotes from the filmmakers themselves could by lies this far out, which is why Star Wars fans have to have their rumor deflector shields up at all times. Unless it’s reported by StarWars.com, it’s a rumor, no matter if you read it here, on a Star Wars fan site, or anywhere else.

That said, a new wrinkle to that villain rumor mill has now been unearthed. Latino Review claims the original rumor, while mostly false, does have a few very important pieces of truth in it. What are they? We’ll reveal those potentials spoiler below. Read More »

Palpatine

UPDATE: Long running Star Wars site TheForce.net says this rumor is unequivocally, 100% false. However, they don’t cite a source. We’ve left the original story below.

This might be total BS. We’re going to be honest about that. But reading this new information was interesting and fun, and even if it may not be true, why deny you the same joy? Let the Star Wars speculation continue!

As you all know by now, we know nothing of the plot to Star Wars Episode VII. We know the original characters are back, thirty years have passed, and some younger actors play new characters. That’s it. We can safely assume there will be Jedi, but there’s no real pulse on the bad guys. You see, at the end of Return of the Jedi, Luke Skywalker defeated the Sith, returning balance to the Force. However, characters revealed in other canon stories (mainly Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels) could potentially still be around. We simply don’t know.

Now, a new article has some exciting speculation on the topic, with at least a potential hint of truth. The team at Making Star Wars have some info they believe to be from actual Star Wars insiders on who and what the Star Wars 7 villains are. More over, they may also have an idea of how those villains figure into the entire sequel trilogy.

Suffice to say, if any of this is true, this information contains both minor and major spoilers. We’ll differentiate after the jump. Read More »

Simon Pegg Star Wars

UPDATE from Germain: A few hours after this rumor about Simon Pegg appearing in Star Wars Episode VII broke, the actor took to Twitter to say “I think this might be why everyone got a little bit confused” with a link to the upcoming Phineas and Ferb: Star Wars special. He IS a part of that project so while that’s not a denial, it’s pretty close. Plus, we’d heard rumblings Pegg merely visited the set because he is both a huge Star Wars nerd and friends with writer/director J.J. Abrams. And so the rumor began.

Pegg also spoke to Sky Movies in the UK about Abrams and his approach to the film. In the clip, it sounds like he has an intimate knowledge of what the director is doing but it doesn’t sound like he’s in the movie. So, below, see that new video and read our original story. Read More »
