Chloe Zhao To Direct Marvel’s The Eternals

zhao

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chloe Zhao (Songs My Brother Taught Me) has been tapped to direct the upcoming Marvel’s The Eternals adaptation. Marvel Studios hopes for the film to be their next surprise hit, with a script by Matthew and Ryan Firpo, said to focus on “super-powered and near-immortal beings known as Eternals and a more monstrous off-shoot known as the Deviants that were created by cosmic beings known as Celestials.” Of course, Thanos being a deviant, would be a great way to keep his character in the MCU-proper.

The report also confirms that the main characters will be Ikaris, “a man fueled by cosmic energy,” and Sersi, “who relishes moving amongst humans.” While directors Travis Knight (Bumblebee) and Nicole Kassell (HBO’s Watchmen pilot) were also in contention for the director’s chair.

New Trailer for Ralph Breaks The Internet Debuts

Disney Animation has debuted a new trailer for Ralph Breaks The Internet (I guess they dropped the Wreck It Ralph 2 part, finally), and it gives us a much better view into the plot of the film, and many of its new characters. After Sugar Rush is damaged, and unplugged, Ralph and Vanellope travel to the internet to find the part and restore the arcade.

The film looks like it could hit just as well as the first, with plenty of memes, jokes, and video game references to be found. Ralph Breaks The Internet hits theaters on November 21st.

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that a sequel to cult-classic Space Jam has been announced with Lebron James set to star alongside the Looney Tunes. On top of that, Ryan Coogler (Black Panther) will be producing the film, with Terence Nance (The Oversimplification Of Her Beauty) will direct.

“The Space Jam collaboration is so much more than just me and the Looney Tunes getting together and doing this movie,” says James, “It’s so much bigger. I’d just love for kids to understand how empowered they can feel and how empowered they can be if they don’t just give up on their dreams. And I think Ryan did that for a lot of people.”

BREAKING: Henry Cavill Out as Superman

superman

According to The Hollywood Reporter, negotiations to have Henry Cavill cameo in Shazam! have broken down, and the actor will now no longer be returning to the role of the Man of Steel. The studio has decided to shift focus to its Supergirl film, supporting their attempts at a soft reboot for the DCEU. Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, and Ezra Miller will return, but it seems that Cavill and Ben Affleck will not be making their returns.

This was heavily rumored after Cavill accepted the role of Geralt in Netflix’s The Witcher adaptation, but apparently they’re more linked than we know, as Cavill supposedly took the role after learning of Warner Bros.’ plan moving forward.

UPDATE: Additionally, it’s said that the previously talked about Shazam! cameo will be used as a springboard for Superman’s replacement actor in the DCEU, but take that with a grain of salt.

Captain Britain and the Black Knight Film Rumored

Britain

Ain’t It Cool News is reporting a rumor that Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige are hoping to jump into the void left by the now-delayed James Bond 25 with a Captain Britain and the Black Knight film directed by Guy Ritchie. Space has apparently been reserved to hold auditions at Pinewood Studios for November and December, but take this all with a grain of salt.

Guy Ritchie is currently working with Disney on the upcoming Aladdin film, so he’s most certainly in the fold, and with a number of untitled films in the works, it’s potential that there could be a little fire alongside this smoke. Only time will tell.
