While Captain America: Civil War is currently in production down in Atlanta, another Marvel sequel is still getting prepared to go in front of cameras next year. Guardians of the Galaxy 2, the sequel to last year’s hit sci-fi action adventure from director James Gunn, doesn’t arrive until May 5th, 2017, but the first draft of the script has just been completed. Oh, and in case you were wondering if it’s good, the film’s star Chris Pratt says it made him cry.

The biggest question to come out of 2014’s blockbuster superhero science fiction film Guardians of the Galaxy has nothing to do with Thanos or Infinity Gems. It has to do with the end credits sequence. No, not the post credits sequence in the Collector’s museum, but the fun sequence at the front of the credits involving potted baby Groot dancing to the Jackson Five’s “I Want You Back”. So the question is: why didn’t baby Groot want Drax to see him dancing? He froze every time Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) looked over. Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn finally gives us an answer.

We’ve already seen 007’s slick all-black getup from the new Bond film, Spectre, and now we have a first look at some of the characters that’ll cross his path. New pictures reveal Dave Bautista as henchman Mr. Hinx (who, unlike Drax the Destroyer, understands what a metaphor is) and Léa Seydoux as not-quite-Bond-girl Dr. Madeleine Swann.
Get to know the new characters with a fresh batch of Spectre images after the jump.

Netflix and Nintendo are at work potentially developing a TV series based on The Legend of Zelda. The news broke last week and got video game fans salivating. Sure there was a short lived Zelda TV show many years ago, but a Nintendo property hasn’t been adapted into a big budget, live-action…well…anything since the early Nineties. And The Legend of Zelda has long been at the top of fan’s wish lists for a new show of movie.
But what is the show going to be? All we know at the moment is Nintendo and Netflix want a family friendly show with the aesthetic of Game of Thrones. Okay, but how old will Link be? Zelda? Which will be the main character? Is Ganon the bad guy? What story will they use? At this point, without a script or showrunner, all options are likely on the table.
Since most of The Legend of Zelda games are about younger characters, that how we went with our casting wishlist. We tried to pick actors who, for the most part, aren’t super famous but are age appropriate. Actors both in the box and way outside it. The resulting list features lots of people who you may or may not have heard of, but you wouldn’t be surprised to hear were cast on a Netflix show. That’s not to say we didn’t stretch here or there.
So below, we’ve got our own Legend of Zelda Netflix casting wishlist for Link, Zelda, Ganon and then a writer/showrunner/director type. Check it out. Read More »
