Linda Blair says she’s not been asked to return yet for the new Exorcist trilogy. Hear a snippet from The Green Knight’s soundtrack. Plus, what’s to come when Supergirl and Stargirl return. Spoilers, away!
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3/The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special
In a recent interview with Collider, James Gunn revealed fans will need to watch the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special in order to “learn stuff that you need to learn” for Vol. 3. He said: “It’s in-canon, it’s about the Guardians, you’re gonna learn stuff that you need to learn before Volume 3, and it’s great I’m really happy with it.”
Linda Blair revealed there hasn’t been “any discussions about [her] participating or reprising her role” as Regan MacNeil in the recently-announced Exorcist trilogy.
In conversation with Collider, producers John Davis and John Fox revealed the upcoming Predator film is officially titled Skull, and will be “an origin story about the Predator’s first journey” to planet Earth.
It goes back to what made the original Predator movie work. It’s the ingenuity of a human being who won’t give up, who’s able to observe and interpret, basically being able to beat a stronger, more powerful, well-armed force. [Skull] has more akin to The Revenant than it does any film in the Predator canon— you’ll know what I mean once you see it. I think this is a worthy complement to the first one. It’s going to be as good.
