James Gunn might be helping a Lobo project get off of the ground. Luca Guadagnino wants to reboot The Mummy. The Imperfects is no more at Netflix. Plus, what’s coming on the penultimate Walking Dead, and a look at the opening title sequence to Wednesday. To me, my spoilers!

According to The Direct, Marvel and Sony are struggling to reach a final agreement over the character rights to both Wilson “The Kingpin” Fisk and Jessica “Spider-Woman” Drew. Though Fisk is set to appear in the new Daredevil series at Disney+, and Drew is set to debut in the upcoming Madame Web movie at Sony, it appears having either character meet Tom Holland’s Spider-Man is currently off-the-table.
J.D. Dillard’s Star Wars
In conversation with The Wrap, J.D. Dillard confirmed he’s no longer developing a Star Wars movie at Disney.
Unfortunately, no longer a thing. It was not for lack of trying.
Though Dillard explained admitted he’s still interested in making a space opera, “it will be [based on] an original idea.”
Meanwhile, Suspiria remake director Luca Guadagnino revealed he’s potentially interested in directing a “very scary” reboot of The Mummy when asked what horror film he’d like to remake next.
Oh my god. That’s an incredible question that I didn’t prepare myself [for]. Oh my god, what should I do? I think it would be amazing to do something about The Mummy. It’s a rotten body in rotten bandages, so what’s inside is [as] interesting as what’s outside. It should be very scary and very, very terminal. It should be a little movie but with a lot of depth and very scary.
By the same token, Ernie Hudson stated he’d “love to” star in a sequel to Congo during a recent interview with Comic Book.
From day one, when we finished, [I said] I’d love to have another Congo. At Paramount, it might have been their biggest film that year, but they’ve never given it a lot of respect. I’m not quite sure what that’s about or why. I’d love to see it happen. I love the character, it’s one of the characters — probably had more fun with that character than a lot of the ones I’ve worked with. It was really cool.
