The Toxic Avenger is making a comeback. Netflix wants to make a modern Three Musketeers. A new Avengers: Endgame spot remembers the lost. The Iron Throne hides a draconic shadow in a new Game of Thrones poster. Plus, a new look at the final two episodes of Gotham teases the rise of Batman. To me, my spoilers!
The Toxic Avenger
Variety reports Macon Blair (I Don’t Feel At Home in This World Anymore) is now attached to write and direct a remake of Troma’s The Toxic Avenger for Legendary.
The Three Musketeers
Netflix is now developing a modern take on Alexandre Dumas’ The Three Musketeers from writer Harrison Query and producers Eric Newman, Bryan Unkeless and Scott Glassgold described as something akin to “Mission: Impossible in tone.”
No new Endgame footage here but the latest TV spot basically serves as an “In Memoriam” reel to the victims of Infinity War.
Meanwhile, a recently leaked Funko Pop! 2-pack hints at a potential Hulk vs. Thanos rematch. Or it could mean nothing at all, given how toys for these movies usually work out.
In related news, Jeremy Renner posted a photograph of himself alongside his fellow Avengers castmates with the caption, “Dear Thanos, we’re coming for you...Sincerely A6!” Start your time travel/blurry Chris Evans theories now.

Jon Favreau has shared a new behind-the-scenes snap from the series, of director Taika Waititi doing voiceover work for...what appears to be the infamous droid Bounty Hunter, IG-88.
Rumors of 88's appearance in the series have floated around for a while now, but whether this is actually 88, or one of the other numbered IG assassin droids remains to be seen. Nice Iron Mandalorian helmet there, though.
