Although it’s not for sure, apparently Idris Elba is working on something “big” for DC. My bet’s on a reprise of his Suicide Squad 2 character, Bloodsport, but lips are otherwise sealed. Set pics from the Marvel TV series Ironheart and Madame Web offer new clues. Plus, a hint that J.J. Abrams’ gritty Constantine is still in progress. Take to the skies, spoilers!
In a recent interview with Fandango’s Erik Davis, Idris Elba revealed he has “a really big thing cooking for DC right now.”
Chad Stahleski also told Collider his Highlander reboot is “closer [than it’s] ever been” to happening.
We’re in the process of tweaking right now. I think we know what we want. More importantly than anything, we know what we want to make. It’s in the creatives. We know what we’re trying to make. It’s just a matter of getting it to the point where we feel, ‘Okay, this is it. Let’s go.’ But we’re closer than we’ve ever been so that’s good.
In the same interview, Stahleski additionally revealed Henry Cavill is his top choice to play Connor MacLeod.
It’s not just about muscles and brooding,” he said. “I think he’s got an incredible range and I think he’d bring something very special. And his enthusiasm has been amazing in it.
That one is something that I would love to talk about. You may be hearing something by year’s end…on that front.
