Numan Acar Cast as The Chameleon?

chame

It’s been rumored that classic Spider-Man villain, The Chameleon, would be showing up in Spider-Man: Far From Home, and now it seems we’re a little closer to that confirmation. Deadline is reporting that Numan Acar (Homeland) has been added to the cast of the sequel, though no details on his role have been revealed, we know that he’ll be playing a character named Dmitri, which could signify his role as Dmitri Smerdyakov, a.k.a. The Chameleon.

This is still speculation, but given the that Acar can speak numerous languages, and the globe-trotting nature of the film, it could certainly be true.

Duncan Jones is Directing a Comic Book Movie

DJ

The acclaimed director of genre films Moon and Source Code, took to his Twitter this morning to announce that his next project will be a comic book movie. He goes on to say we’ll learn more in a few days. With that timeline, it nearly eliminates Marvel from the competition, but things look good for DC. Could Jones be directing Green Lantern Corps? What project do you think he would be best suited for?

A little nervous about this, but hell, nervous is where the fun is! I’m going to be making a comic book movie next! A pretty special one. That’s the initial tease… Second tease to come in a few days!

Jones was one of the first directors approached for Man of Steel back in 2010, but passed on it, believing that Moon, the only film under his belt at the time, didn’t yet prepare him for such a large scale film. Now, with Source Code, the surprisingly great Warcraft, and Mute, on his resume, perhaps Jones feels now is the time? His cinematic sensibilities certainly line up with DC, and his eye for wonderful shots would make for some incredibly beautiful alien worlds alongside the Green Lantern Corps. Additionally, with Geoff Johns recently signing on fully as screenwriter, that could shape up to be something special.

Cate Shortland to Direct Black Widow Solo Film

After a long and intensive search, the much-anticipated Black Widow solo movie finally has a director. The Hollywood Reporter is bringing word that Australian director Cate Shortland will helm the Marvel Studios movie starring Scarlett Johansson. Shortland’s past credits include World War II drama Lore, and horror film Berlin Syndrome from last year.

THR is also reporting that Jac Schaeffer has penned the most recent draft of the script for the film. Additionally, the Black Widow movie will be a prequel and is set before the events of Marvel’s The Avengers.

Nick Fury Returning for Spider-Man: Far From Home?

fury

It would seem that Nick Fury has more to do after his return in Captain Marvel. Samuel L. Jackson has confirmed over on his Instagram that he’s in the United Kingdom, and that he’s making his return as Nick Fury. However, it looks like the former S.H.I.E.L.D. Director will be rocking some facial hair, confirming this role likely won’t involve Captain Marvel, but instead the currently filming friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.

How the former director of S.H.I.E.L.D. will play into the story has yet to be seen, but seeing as Spider-Man: Far From Home is the first film after Avengers 4, meant to lead us into a new chapter of the MCU, it makes sense to see the man that started it all.

Billy Dee Williams Returning for Star Wars: Episode IX

lando

The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed the long-standing rumor that Billy Dee Williams would be returning to a galaxy far, far away and will reprise his role of Lando Calrissian for next year’s Star Wars: Episode IX. After the deaths of Luke Skywalker and Han Solo, and the sad, real life death of Carrie Fisher, it makes sense to bring back the other fan-favorite classic character, particularly after the character’s revival in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

In Star Wars: Episode IX, Williams will join returning franchise stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, and Adam Driver, as well as newcomer Keri Russell.

New Christopher Robin Sneak Peek

Disney has released a new sneak peek at the upcoming live-action Winnie the Pooh film, Christopher Robin. The new trailer gives us a little more wonder and playtime with a bit of new footage splashed in for good measure. This looks like it’s going to be one for the adults of the family, with plenty of fun for the kids, as well. It also looks like it’s definitely going to be a sort of tear-jerker.

Christopher Robin hits theaters on August 3rd.

Spider-Man: Far From Home Revealed as Sequel Title

The script is finished, and Tom Holland used that to reveal the title on Instagram video while at ACE Comic-Con Seattle, this weekend.

The title confirms the rumored globe-trotting adventure the film is set to consist of, with Jake Gyllenhaal playing Mysterio, and Michael Keaton reprising his role as the Vulture.

First Surprise Trailer for Dumbo Released

Disney has released a bit of a surprise, with the first teaser trailer for Dumbo. The trailer is quite the surprise with no hype surrounding it, but that’s sure to change, now. The visuals are incredible, and it looks as if director Tim Burton (Alice in Wonderland) was able to get past his own shadow to create something new, here.

Starring Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, Nico Parker Rooney, Douglas Reith, Joseph Gatt and Alan Arkin, Dumbo is set to hit theaters on March 29th, 2019.

Iron Fist Season 2 Later This Year

ironfist

It looks like most of the Marvel’s Defenders will be getting a new season this year, as Jeph Loeb has confirmed that we will see Marvel’s Iron Fist Season 2 later this year, with Daredevil Season 3 hitting in 2019. Marvel’s Iron Fist will again star Finn Jones as the titular hero, Danny Rand. The cast for the series will also include the return of Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing, Simone Missick as Misty Knight, Tom Pelphrey as Ward Meachum, Jessica Stroup as Joy Meachum, and Sacha Dhawan as Danny’s childhood friend Davos.

However, for fans of the crossover series itself, you shouldn’t be holding your breath, as there are currently no plans for a Marvel’s Defenders Season 2, but it’s not completely out of the question.

Not in the plans right now, but you never know….We loved Defenders and so did our fans. We’ll see about doing it again — as you can guess it messes with the schedules on other shows – so do you want more Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Jessica Jones or another Defenders?

First Avengers 4 Promo Art Leaks Online

De7FDqDW4AIBGeD

The first rumored promo artwork for the still-untitled Avengers 4 has leaked online, showing off a few new costumes, and new looks for the post-Infinity War team, as they prepare to face Thanos again. This may still be fan-made, but given the similarities to past artwork, it’s very likely official. The most interesting takeaways are Hulk’s new costume, Hawkeye and Ant-Man are there, with Hawkeye not yet sporting his new hair, and Captain Marvel joining the fray.

Most, however, will likely point out Captain America’s lack of his now-famous beard. Which, is simply tragic. Hopefully we’ll learn more about the film soon, as Marvel Studios has opted out of Comic-Con this year, leaving us with quite a few mysteries to unravel.

First Trailer for Wreck-It-Ralph 2 Debuts

Disney has released the first official trailer for Ralph Breaks The Internet: Wreck-It-Ralph 2, and it’s filled to the brim with cameos and easter eggs. The sequel sees Ralph (John C. Reilly) and Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) take to the internet and discover all it has to offer.

The first trailer is pretty funny, and there are so many easter eggs to take in, it’s actually ridiculous. Ralph Breaks The Internet: Wreck-It-Ralph 2 hits theaters on November 21st.
