Man of Steel 2

The Wrap’s Umberto Gonzalez has staked his claim that a swirling 4chan-based rumor about Supergirl’s involvement in the sequel is a fake, among other tidbits about future DCEU movies that should also be taken with a copious amount of salt, because after all, this is a 4chan rumor.


Thor: Ragnarok

While speaking at Australia’s Supanova Expo, Chris Hemsworth confirmed that sadly, Thor’s roommate Daryl will not appear in Thor: Ragnarok, but could appear in Avengers: Infinity War. On top of that, the actor also says that Asgard gets a makeover during the events of Ragnarok, which makes sense given that we see Hela’s forces ravage it during the trailer.



Edge of Tomorrow 2

Director Christopher McQuarrie promises the sequel will bring clarity to the original film’s ending.


Fantastic Four

Producer Kevin Feige has once again confirmed there are currently no plans for the Fantastic Four in the MCU. Please look forward to hearing that answer repeatedly for the next few years.

[We have] no plans with the Fantastic Four right now. No discussions about it.

Jurassic World 2

While appearing on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, writer Colin Trevorrow admitted to swiping some of Dr. Ian Malcolm’s dialogue in the movie from Michael Crichton’s original Jurassic Park novels.

You know, I did rely on [Michael] Crichton for a lot. I used a lot of Crichton dialogue. Maybe one of my highlights of this whole process is Goldblum. Jeff Goldblum called me – and I’m not going to do an impression – but he was like, ‘Look, I’ve added a couple of things, and I thought I’d perform it for you.’ [Laughs] Oh, great, okay. So, we sat on the phone for an hour as he ran these lines, and I talked about it. And, I mean, that’s – it was almost better than being there on set. It was great.


Trevorrow then went on to hype the exciting “middle” of the movie:

It’s just deeper, more character-based, and it definitely leans into suspense, especially in the second half… It does have the big action in the middle. There’s a sequence in the middle that I’ve been watching – I mean, I watch dailies every day – but I’ve started to see stuff come together, and it’s just insane.

I apologize to those who thought they were never gonna need to see another Jurassic World movie, because I think J.A. Bayona is gonna prove [them] wrong.


Justice League

New set pictures from the reshoots have people wildly speculating that the Hall of Justice or even the team’s orbital station, the Watchtower, is being built for scenes in the film. The Hall of Justice looks a lot like a car park full of trailers, at the moment, so make what you will of that speculation
