When you hear about a Korean War movie, your first thought probably isn’t, “I wonder who they’re going to cast as Elizabeth Taylor?” But here we are! Devotion, a new movie from director J.D. Dillard (Sleight), is about a pair of U.S. Navy fighter pilots who “risk their lives during the Korean War and become some of the Navy’s most celebrated wingmen,” but at some point, legendary actress Elizabeth Taylor pops up in the story as well. And now Devotion has cast Serinda Swan to play the part.

Inhumans! It’s definitely a real show that is really going to be on the air very soon. And to prove it, a new Inhumans trailer has arrived to try to sell audiences one last time on the potentially confusing mythology on display. Most of all, though, this trailer knows the one very specific thing that might convince people still on the fence to watch: that big CGI dog, who gets his own little intro before the Marvel TV logo starts. Watch the new Inhumans trailer below.

Marvel Studios is adding another television show to their line-up of programming that takes place inside the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But much like the ABC series Agents of SHIELD, it seems this show is going to have its own world to play it that is more tangential to the MCU rather than having any direct relationship to it.
Inhumans adapts the Marvel Comics title of the same name, focusing on a royal family of
mutants enhanced individuals who harbor certain special abilities. But when they have their lives uprooted by a military coup, they take sanctuary in Hawaii, where they may find the key to saving the planet.
Marvel and ABC brought an Inhumans Comic-Con panel to San Diego where they discussed the show and revealed some new details about what fans can expect from the latest comic book series to take place in the MCU. Read More »

If you think we’ve got a lot of superhero shows now, just wait — there are still more coming down the pipeline, hoping to join all the ones we already have. Today, two of the more prominent ones took big steps forward. ABC’s Inhumans has just found its leading lady in Graceland alum Serinda Swan, while Fox’s untitled X-Men spinoff has located another mutant in The Goldbergs‘ Natalie Alyn Lind. Read More »
Summit is pinning some hopes on Stephen Chbosky‘s adaptation of his own novel The Perks of Being a Wallflower. The project has been waiting for Emma Watson to be finished with Harry Potter so she can play a lead role, and also has Logan Lerman, Mae Whitman and Paul Rudd in the cast. (Logan Lerman is the titular wallflower.) Now Nina Dobrev is going to jump into the cast from The Vampire Diaries as a character named Candace. [Deadline]
After the break, Billy Bob Thornton goes to the disco, and Fox hires more cast for Chronicle. Read More »
You can add Model/Smallville gueststar Serinda Swan to the cast of Disney’s Tron 2.0. When casting for the sequel was first announced, the Hollywood tradepapers claimed that Beau Garrett (Rise of the Silver Surfer, Made of Honor) would play a siren and Olivia Wilde (House, The O.C.) would play a worker in the virtual world who tries to help fight Master Control Program. Later in an interview with Sci-Fi, Wilde claimed that the leaked character description was not that accurate: “I don’t know who made it up. Someone’s grasping for straws there.” But Swan confirms part of the earlier description while talking to TV Guide:
“Yeah. Beau Garrett, these two other actresses and I play temptresses from inside the computer world. We’re sort of the main guy’s go-to girls. There are lights actually sewn into our wardrobe, so it’s like nothing you’ve seen before!”
I’m not sure what to think of the siren/temptresses part, but it’s always interesting to hear about some of the technology they are using to create the film. So far we know that the movie has huge sets and motion capture, incorporating some of the visual effects technology from Benjamin Button, and now… suits with lights sewn into wardrobe (which sounds a little bit like what they did with Dr. Manhattan for Watchmen).
