Considering the frankly alarming number of Marvel heroes already in Infinity War at this point, it seems unlikely that Espensen is going to be suiting up. Presumably, she’s back for high school scenes featuring Peter... but you never know?



Variety reports that Jenny Slate is currently in talks to play an unspecified “scientist” in Sony’s Venom.


In related news, Variety’s Justin Kroll took to Twitter to reveal that 50 Shades of Grey screenwriter Kelly Marcel has been hired to write the latest draft of the Venom spinoff.


Maleficent 2

Joachim Rønning (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) is the current frontrunner to direct Disney’s villain sequel.




Filming is now underway on M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable follow-up.


Ghostbusters: Animated Movie

That Hashtag Show claims that Fletcher Moules’ forthcoming animated Ghostbusters movie will be told from the perspective of a ghost in New York City.


In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Andrew Kreisberg revealed that Carl Lumbly—who voiced Martian Manhunter on both Justice League and Justice League Unlimited—will guest-star as J’onn’s father in season 3.

Carl Lumbly will be joining as J’onn’s father. First of all, he’s so amazing. J’onn has always felt like an alien. He spent 300 years on Earth and he’s always felt different, and other, and felt people were afraid of him, and has always had to hide who he really was. The irony is he becomes reconnected with his father and his father thinks, ‘Oh my God, you’ve gone so Earth-man.’ So for J’onn, it’s this realization that he’s not quite the alien that he thought he was, and what that means to him, and if we’re reconnecting with his Martian heritage, how important is that to him?



Stephen Amell tells TV Line that, of all of Team Arrow, Oliver is the one most hopeful of convincing Black Siren to turn to good in the next season:

Oliver, ironically—and despite the fact that she allied herself with Adrian Chase—is the most hopeful one. He’s like, ‘If there’s a bit of Laurel in there, I want to find it.’


The Flash

Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg promises an emotional journey for Wells in the new season:

We’re picking up with Harry. We felt like we managed to pull off three different Wells in three years, and rather than just going and doing another Wells, we definitely felt there was more meat on the bone with Harry. Harry is a genius, and his daughter is safe, and she’s the Flash on Earth-3, and he’s one of those people who’s realizing that he doesn’t have a life. So Season 4 for Harry is really realizing what he’s missing in his life and what it is he needs to become a better, more complete person.

So he’s going to be going on a fairly epic emotional journey this season that is tied to the Thinker’s plan, and we’re really excited about it. It’s probably something a little bit more emotional than we’ve ever done for that character, but Tom is such a phenomenal actor, we know he’ll knock it out of the park. I’ll also say that Harry won’t be the only Wells we’ll see this season.
