Black Panther 2 Update and Black Widow Cast Addition

Even though Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe doesn’t include Black Panther 2, we know that there are plans behind the scenes to get the sequel off the ground at some point. Though we’re still very much in the dark about where the sequel will take the African superhero next, we do know at least one cast member who will return from the first movie, and they’re not even from Wakanda. Martin Freeman will return as CIA Agent Everett Ross for the sequel

Meanwhile, Black Widow will be the first movie that officially kicks off Phase Four next year, and even though the project has been filming for a couple months now, we’re just now getting word about them bringing in a massive new cast member who will likely be quite the formidable threat for Scarlett Johansson.

Francis Ngannou

Since Dwayne Johnson won’t be returning for Fast and Furious 9, the sequel needs to find some muscle elsewhere. They’ve already brought in John Cena for a role in the franchise, but instead of reaching back into the world of wrestling for another cast member, they’ve snagged a UFC fighter to get in on the action. Francis Ngannou, the #2 fighter in the heavyweight division of UFC, is joining the Fast and Furious 9 cast. Read More »

snake eyes movie cast

Hollywood refuses to give up on the idea of G.I. Joe movies, and rather than make another sequel, Paramount will attempt a spin-off. That spin-off is Snake Eyes, focused on the silent masked ninja commando – and it looks like Paramount has found its star.

Crazy Rich Asians actor Henry Golding is in talks to join the Snake Eyes movie, and since Golding is a star on the rise, you can safely assume Snake Eyes will probably take off his mask and talk in this movie. Which will likely upset the hardcore G.I. Joe fans out there.

Last month, word broke that Harry Styles was being sought to join The Little Mermaid remake cast as Ariel’s love interest Prince Eric. Yesterday, numerous outlets started claiming it was a done deal, and Styles would indeed be part of the cast. Not so fast!

traphouse

If you take a look at Dave Bautista‘s filmography over the past ten years or so, you’ll find a mixture of high profile franchise projects (including the highest grossing movie ever) and low budget action flicks, a mixture that has given him a chance to stretch himself as a performer and lead some B-movies while honing his strengths. In other words, Bautista is putting in the work, and he’s quietly establishing himself between Marvel projects.

And while the actor already has several things already in the pipeline (including Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of Dune), a new report says he’s found another new movie project to star in and produce: an undercover thriller called Traphouse, which is written by the guy who wrote 2001’s The Fast and The Furious.
