Avengers: Infinity War

Joe Russo talks about the film uniting the Marvel Cinematic Universe:

People will not be disappointed in the amount of characters in the movie. The concept of Infinity War is that the Marvel universe unites to battle the greatest threat to the world and universe that you’ve ever seen, and we’re going to honor that concept.



Star Wars Episode VIII

John Boyega teases a much more physical role for Finn in the sequel:

[The script is] great. Much darker, but we’re very excited... My part in the next film will be much more physical so I might be in the gym a bit more.



The Prisoner

Deadline is reporting that Ridley Scott is in talks to direct a film adaptation of the classic Patrick McGoohan TV series about a man who mysteriously finds himself imprisoned in a bizarre seaside village.


Suicide Squad

USA Today’s report about Batman v Superman also has a new image from Suicide Squad of the dysfunctional team.



Over the weekend images from filming on the show hit the internet, featuring Emily Bett Rickards using a wheelchair during scenes, confirming that Felicity survived being shot at the climax of the fourth season’s midseason finale:


A low quality Australian promo for the show’s return also features footage of Felicity’s mother telling Oliver that Felicity will never walk again:

The fact that Felicity, Arrow’s resident tech expert/hacker, is seemingly wheelchair bound seems to confirm recent speculation that the character will become the CW’s answer to Oracle, the alter-ego of a paralysed Barbara Gordon (before she was retconned in DC’s 2011 comic reboot). Although the pictures don’t confirm or deny that this is a new status quo for the character, Producer Marc Guggenheim has taken to twitter to seemingly acknowledge the photos, saying that not everything is as they appear to be:


So make of it what you will.


Greg Berlanti reiterates that a crossover with the Arrow universe would be nice, but very unlikely at the moment:

I personally never rule anything out, I would be excited by it. But a lot of things would have to go right, people would have to say yes, for that to happen. It would have to be figured out in the next month or so.

The Flash

The CW have announced that Kevin Smith will direct an upcoming episode during the show’s second season. [CBR]


Here’s a synopsis for the show’s midseason return, “The Reverse-Flash Returns”:

HE’S BACK… — When Cisco (Carlos Valdes) gets a vibe of Eobard Thawne (guest star Matthew Letscher), Barry (Grant Gustin) and the team don’t believe it. But, after an attack at Mercury Labs, Christina McGee (guest star Amanda Pays) confirms that the Reverse Flash is back. Meanwhile, Iris (Candice Patton) and Francine (guest star Vanessa A. Williams) share a nice moment that brings Iris closer to her brother, Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale).



Twin Peaks

TV Line are reporting that Laura Dern has joined the show, playing an undisclosed role—but one rumored to in fact be Agent Cooper’s never-seen secretary Diane.


Sherilyn Fenn will reprise her role as Audrey Horne in a major role for the upcoming series, according to Deadline


Evan Goldberg briefly acknowledges that the show will diverge from the comic book source material:

It didn’t seem at first we should do [deviate from the comic] that way and then we talked to Garth [Ennis ]and he encouraged us to make small changes. We want fans who love the comic to get everything they want — but we make twists and turns.



Agents of SHIELD

Clark Gregg does not expect the show’s ongoing story arcs about the rise of Inhumans to have much effect on the upcoming Inhumans movie:

The Inhumans movie I suspect will be its own cinematic version. That writer and director will have free reign to do what they want to do with the Inhumans. But hopefully there’ll be some way that our Inhumans connect to that. It’d be too bad if that was wasted.

Luke Cage/Iron Fist

Carrie-Anne Moss discusses the potential for reprising her Jessica Jones role of Jeryn Hogarth in other Marvel Netflix series. In the comics, Hogarth became the legal representation for Luke Cage and Danny Rand’s mercenary superhero outfit, the Heroes for Hire:

Absolutely. I mean, how fun, just to explore that. It’s infinite. The possibilities are just so massive. I think it’s such an exciting time for me, right now, to be in this show and to be a part of the Marvel world. I’m just all in, you know.



Ash vs Evil Dead

Starz CEO Chris Albrecht offers an update on the show’s second season:

Saw the first script a couple days ago. Looks really good. Second seasons are so important for series. That’s the difference between making a movie and making a series. The cast really gelled through the first season. They appropriately got a lot of acknowledgment from the fans and press. We’re really excited. This is a series. I think it’s got the legs of a real series. The storylines and what I’ve seen on paper back that up. We’re on track for another season in 2016.
