SimonPeggPaul

Simon Pegg won’t appear in Star Wars Episode VII, but that doesn’t mean he won’t be part of the film in some other way. In a recent interview, Pegg continued to say what he’s always said about the film. He’s a huge fan, he’s friends with writer director J.J. Abrams, he’s visited the set, but him appearing would take people out of the movie. So he continues to say he won’t be on screen in Episode VII. But he also won’t, and hasn’t, said that he’s not in the movie at all, which is now leading to speculation the Shaun of the Dead actor might provide some kind of voice or performance capture where his face wouldn’t be an issue.

Super Jedi

I’m not really sure what this photo means, or if it’s just some playful pre-Comic Con fun, but either way I thought it was worth sharing. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (yup, that’s still the title) director Zack Snyder tweeted a photo of Man of Steel star Henry Cavill in a black hood holding a light saber with the hashtag #superjedi. We’re pretty sure this has nothing to do with a Star Wars crossover (two different studios and well, never gonna happen) but the backdrop of the portrait suggests Superman’s new black robe look has something to do with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which is expected to appear at the Warner Bros Comic con panel later this week. See the full Super Jedi photo after the jump.

Gwendoline Christie Star Wars episode VII

The first round of Star Wars casting was a male-centric lineup of talent, with only Carrie Fisher and newcomer Daisy Ridley balancing out the guys. But Star Wars Episode VII has added a few other women to the fold over the past few weeks: Lupita Nyong’o, Christina Chong, Crystal Clarke, and Gwendoline Christie have all signed on.

We don’t know much about the roles played by any of the women other than Fisher, but some really interesting new details have emerged about Gwendoline Christie’s possible role. We’ll keep all the spoilers after the jump, but fans of Christie’s Game of Thrones character Brienne of Tarth won’t be disappointed.  Read More »
