Batman v Superman

Rumors are once again swirling that Scoot McNairy is playing a double-amputee Jimmy Olsen, this time with Heroic Hollywood allegedly backing up the year-old rumor with new sources confirming it to be the case. As ever with anonymously sourced rumors, take it with a pinch of salt.



God is dead, and Envision Media Arts has struck a deal with the Austrian hard candy manufacturer Pez to make a movie about its pop-culture-reference-laden plastic sweet dispensers. [CBR]


Hellboy 3

Ron Perlman once again champions the need for the film:

Let me make the record clear: I don’t want to do Hellboy 3. It’s a pain in the ass to put that makeup on and take it off. But I feel we’re obligated to finish the story. That’s it. End of conversation

I got no problems with forcing the conversation, as you can tell. We’re in the business of moving mountains. Those of us who are used to working in mainstream film and television. Don’t come to me with details and problems. Just tell me how we move the mountain.



The Crow

Relativity Media has declared bankruptcy and production on the film has stalled. [CBR]


Pacific Rim 2

Charlie Hunnam hopes the sequel will focus on the characters rather than being a CGI spectacle:

I think world creation and monster creation and all of that stuff is exciting as a secondary element of storytelling. When it becomes more important than storytelling, I get very nervous, and you sort of lose me a little bit. Although we tried very hard on Pacific Rim to marry those two elements, I do feel like ultimately it got weighed heavier on the side of spectacle than storytelling.

I hope that we are able to remedy that a little bit going into the second. Not to say I wasn’t proud of the film. I really liked it, and I felt like it delivered exactly what it was supposed to. But I do feel like we could have maybe plumbed the depths of the character and the storytelling a little bit more.

Sleepy Hollow

New Showrunner Clifton Campbell says that the Headless Horseman will not appear in the new season:

There won’t be any Headless this year, but we have a new framework and a new set of rules for the mythology. And it all starts with the introduction of our new big bad and will take us into a very interesting device which will allow us to see a somewhat more compelling, but more personal threat to both Abbie and Crane.

Steven Moffat discusses the Victorian setting of the upcoming Christmas Special:

The main difference I would say, the only temperature change moving it from Victorian and Modern is ghost stories work better in the Victorian setting,” Moffat said. “Doyle stories that are scary chillers we haven’t done much. Victorian era gives us a chance to do a creepy one, a scary one.
