Sam Raimi has high hopes for Evil Dead Rise. Katrina Law joins Frank Grillo’s Purge meets Werewolves horror Year 2. Riverdale is adding a very interesting figure from Cheryl’s past. Plus, what’s coming in the Moon Knight finale, and a new glimpse at Walking Dead’s final season. Spoilers get!
Deadline reports Katrina Law will star alongside Frank Grillo in Year 2, the upcoming action-horror film described as “The Purge with werewolves.”
Sami Raimi promised Evil Dead Rise will “knock people’s socks off” during a recent interview with /Film.
I’ve seen a rough cut, a medium fine cut, and a fine cut. There’s probably a few changes that [director] Lee Cronin is making that I haven’t seen, but it’s great. It’s terrifying and it’s going to knock people’s socks off.
Chiwetel Ejiofor confirmed to Total Film (via The Direct) that Baron Mordo “wasn’t part of the Snap’s ‘away’ group,” and was “definitely engaged in that time.”
That break with Strange has implications. The concerns in the MCU have all expanded, but in some ways [Mordo’s] concerns have gathered momentum. The nature of what he has been talking about has come to pass, in many ways. I think it’s a totally justified quest, and we’ll continue to see this dichotomy between somebody who is still holding a fraternal connection to Stephen Strange, and somebody who does think about the bigger picture.

According to Deadline, Caroline Day (Billions) will “heavily recur” on Riverdale later this season as Heather, “a librarian in Greendale and Cheryl’s long-rumored junior-high sweetheart. After tracking down Heather on social media, Cheryl gets in touch with her, much to Nana Rose’s disapproval. Then, when Heather re-enters Cheryl’s life, she does so with secret knowledge that may help Cheryl understand her emerging powers better.”
