The cast of the Hunger Games prequel continues to grow. Go behind the scenes and learn very little at all in Nope’s latest cryptic featurette. Disney’s Percy Jackson series finds a few more young heroes. Plus, what’s coming on The Flash and Superman & Lois. To me, my spoilers!
The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
Deadline reports Hunter Schaefer (Euphoria) is the latest to join the cast of the Hunger Games prequel as Tigris Snow, “Coriolanus’s cousin and confidante, who advises him in everything—from his role as mentor to the core of his moral compass.”
Thor: Love and Thunder
In a recent interview with Total Film (via Games Radar), Christian Bale revealed his major inspiration for playing Gorr, the God Butcher came from Aphex Twin’s “Come to Daddy” music video.
There’s obviously sort of a Nosferatu slight attitude. Taika and I wanted to do a whole dance, which we didn’t get to do, but we had all this sort of Kate Bush stuff that we worked at. But I think he just realized he was never going to be allowed to put that in the final film. I would say that the most common thing I was staring at was the Aphex Twin video of ‘Come To Daddy’. But I don’t even know if that will be in the final film.
Elsewhere, Korg mistakes Jane Foster for Jodie Foster in a new clip.
The Old Guard 2
Charlize Theron recently shared a couple of photos from the set of The Old Guard 2 on Twitter.
