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.

Rugrats Getting Revival Movie & Series from Nickelodeon

rr

Nickelodeon is in the midst of reviving many of their classic NickToon properties, and Rugrats is considered by many to be the gold standard. One of the greatest animated series ever made. Now, the show is returning with a new 26-episode series, and live-action/animated CG hybrid movie.

“Rugrats is hands-down one of the most celebrated cartoons in TV history, and we are thrilled for a whole new audience to meet these iconic characters in brand-new adventures,” Interim Nickelodeon President Sarah Levy said in a statement. “What was true in 1991 when the original show premiered is still true today: kids are fascinated with the world of babies. We can’t wait for today’s kids to meet Tommy, Chuckie and pals.”

Duncan Jones Working on 2000AD’s Rogue Trooper

RT

Director Duncan Jones, after teasing that he’ll be working on a comic book movie as his next project, has taken to Twitter once again to tease an additional clue that all but gives new project away. Going back to his “homeland” of Britain and tackling a 2000AD character, Jones removed his hat to reveal a blue mohawk, essentially confirming his next project to be a Rogue Trooper film.

For the unfamiliar, Rogue is a Genetic Infantryman, that is genetically engineered to be immune to all known toxins. He wanders in search of the Traitor General accompanied by a helmet, a gun, and backpack that contain the personalities of his many fallen comrades.

Zombieland 2 Officially Announced

zombieland

According to the The Hollywood Reporter, Sony Pictures has finally greenlit a sequel to Zombieland, the 2009 hit horror/comedy. The original cast, which consisted of Academy Award-nominee Woody Harrelson, Academy Award-nominee Jesse Eisenberg, Academy Award-winner Emma Stone, and Academy Award-nominee Abigail Breslin, have all been confirmed to return.

Ruben Fleischer, who recently completed Venom, is back to director with a script from original Zombieland scribes Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese.

“This is one of those projects that fans have wanted to see happen for a long time – and no one wanted to see it happen more than Emma, Woody, Jesse, and Abigail. These are some of the most in-demand actors and I think they are making this movie because they love these characters. We are thrilled Ruben was willing to come back to direct the sequel, as his work on Venom has been truly amazing.”

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.

The other image gives us our first look at Vera Farmiga and Millie Bobby Brown, making her feature film debut. Hit the jump to check out the additional still.

“The world is reacting to Godzilla in the same way we would react to any other terrifying incident, in that we are overreacting,” director Michael Dougherty tells EW about the film. “There’s paranoia and endless speculation about whether he is the only one out there or whether we’re threatened by others like his kind.”

Deadline is reporting that the director of District 9 and Chappie, Neil Blomkamp, has signed on to helm RoboCop Returns for MGM. The project is being developed from a script by Ed Neumeier and Michael Miner that will act as a direct sequel to Paul Verhoeven’s original classic.

So, it looks like Blomkamp won’t get to work on his Aliens sequel after all, but he’ll start get to make his mark on a classic sci-fi franchise.

First Official Shazam! Image Hits

Entertainment Weekly has revealed the first official image of Zachary Levi as the title character in DC Entertainment’s upcoming Shazam! film. The image shows a transformed Billy Batson in full costume, alongside friend Freddy Freeman, played by Jack Dylan Grazer (Stephen King’s It).

The costume is inspired by several different incarnations of the character, including his golden age cape, New 52 lightning bolt and hood, and animated incarnation gauntlets. It’s quite the detailed costume, and I can’t wait to see it in motion, as it’s sure to be even better with full effects. You can hit the jump to check out the image in full.

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.

Djimon Hounsou Joins the Cast of Shazam!

wizard

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Djimon Hounsou (Guardians of the Galaxy) has been cast as The Wizard in DC’s Shazam! Hounsou will be replacing Ron Cephas Jones (This Is Us) after a scheduling conflict prevented Jones from taking the role on further.

The new casting is a bit of a shock, but continues the trend of great casting for the film, though Ron Cephas Jones will be missed as a fantastic choice. Djimon Hounsou will be reprising his Guardians of the Galaxy role as Korath in Marvel’s Captain Marvel which releases only a few short weeks before Shazam!

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.
