Edge of Tomorrow 2

In conversation with Collider, Doug Liman stated its ultimately up to Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt whether Edge of Tomorrow 2 gets made.

It’s one of these things where if Tom, Emily and I were to say, ‘we’re ready to pull the trigger on this script,’ it’s Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, the film gets made. That’s pretty much how Hollywood works. The stars are the gatekeepers. If you can get Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt to commit to the movie, it’s going to happen.


Disenchanted

Patrick Dempsey confirmed he’ll appear in the upcoming Enchanted sequel, Disenchanted, on a recent episode of Good Morning America.

I just got this script for the second movie, and then I’m starting to go through and get notes together.


Untitled Supernatural Action-Adventure

Deadline reports Sony Pictures has acquired an untitled action spec script from David Guggenheim (Safe House, The Christmas Chronicles) described as a “supernatural action-adventure” with “franchise potential” and a female lead. Simon Kinberg is attached to produce.

Batwoman/Superman & Lois

According to Caroline Dries, this year’s planned crossover between Batwoman and Superman & Lois has been canceled amidst ongoing covid-19 concerns.

We’re not really able to cross over because physically, we can’t cross crews due to the fear of exposure to COVID. So if Supergirl weren’t ending this year, I would say there would be more of a possibility. But I’m afraid that at least this year, we’re not going to be able to tap into that dynamic.

Legends of Tomorrow/Swamp Thing

In conversation with Deadline, Mark Pedowitz stated its “unlikely” Swamp Thing will return for a second season at the CW, but the character could potentially stick around on the network via boarding the Waverider as a series regular on Legends of Tomorrow.

It’d be interesting to have Swamp Thing on Legends of Tomorrow, that would be a fun way to do it, but I’m not sure that would happen.

Eh, the Superman / Batwoman crossover never seemed to make a huge amount of sense all things considered. The CW Supes didn’t spend much time around Kate and with a new BW in town...well, what’s the story there? Hell it doesn’t even really make sense to have Kara drop by as the ‘whatever happened to Kate Kane’ mystery kinda goes away when her BFF turns up and pulls a Justice League 3001 to find her in a minute flat (I... really just made that reference. Gotta get out more).

Gotta say, while I get that it was likely production-reality kicking in I’m still really, genuinely gutted we never got a proper two part dedicated crossover between Supergirl and Batwoman. Melissa and Ruby played off each other so damn well and with both Crisis and Elseworld’s setting the stage for it... one of the biggest missed opportunities in superhero stories IMO.
