Ant-Man 3

Appearing as a guest on Ladies First with Laura Brown, Michelle Pfeiffer confirmed she will indeed return as Janet van Dyne in Ant-Man 3. Unfortunately, Coming Soon reports “she declined to share any specific details about the sequel, or if Janet would return to the Quantum Realm” at any time during the interview.


Spider-Man 3

In addition to Alfred Molina, Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Jamie Foxx, Collider alleges Kirsten Dunst will also reprise her role as Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man 3.


Indiana Jones 5

In a recent interview with Den of Geek, producer Frank Marshall continues to iterate that the now 78-year old Harrison Ford will not be recast in Indiana Jones 5.

Yeah, we are working on the script. There will only be one Indiana Jones and that’s Harrison Ford. What I’m excited about with Jim [Mangold] is a great story. I think you see that in his movies like Ford Vs Ferrari. It’s all about characters and telling a good story. So I’m excited to see what he comes up with. I haven’t seen (the script) yet so I don’t know what to tell you.

Space Jam: A New Legacy

Appearing as a guest on Road Trippin’, LeBron James confirmed the upcoming Space Jam sequel will include the Looney Tunes in a game against “some people that are a little out of this world” but is really “more of a family movie” about a father pressuring his son to play basketball.

There will be a basketball game, I’ll say that. And there will be some people that are a little out of this world that we’re competing against. But it’s more of a family movie. It’s a parenting movie between me and my son, and me trying to demand my son to do something because I was taught that way growing up. Demand my son to play basketball. ‘This is what you’re gonna do, this is how you’re gonna do it.’ And me as a parent not listening to my son and not believing in what my son is actually great at. It’s a tackling between me being a parent and supporting my son, and my son basically turning off at some point and me trying to regain that trust throughout the movie. Along with the great Bugs Bunny, and Lola, and Taz, and Tweety. All of them.

Later in the interview, James revealed the original film’s Monstars do not return in A New Legacy— at least, not as we know them.

You can call them that [Monstars] – they have a different name. I won’t give the name.

I think its interesting they’re bringing back actors from past Spider-Man films, though I can’t help but recall that DC/Warners were doing the same regarding Batman with Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck... and on TV doing the same with Brandon Routh as Superman.

Cribbing ideas is a time honored tradition!

Having said that... I DVRed Spider-Man: Far From Home and...

...look, I know that many ‘round these parts love the MCU movies and the Tom Holland Spider-Man but I’m having a really hard time getting into the film.

I’ve been watching it bit by bit for at least three days now and I’ve gotten to the point where they’re in Europe (so, essentially, I’m still in the movie’s opening act) and each time I have to shut the thing down.

I know I’m going to sound incredibly shallow but Tom Holland -an actor I quite like- is too damn handsome to be this geeky reject who has all kinds of problems with the ladies. Plus, spending all that time with all these romantic “humorous” entanglements (Ned Leeds!) is to me a crushing bore.

I’ll keep working at it.  I didn’t like the first act of the first Holland Spider-Man but felt the movie got better as it went along.
