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!

Highlander

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.
