There’s also no news on whether longtime Obi-Wan actor, Ewan McGregor, who has expressed numerous times his interest in returning, will be back for the role.
If you’re unsure of the film I’m talking about, well, it’s actually the official title of Thor: Ragnarok in Japan. Thor: Battle Royale sounds way cooler, so I am intensely jealous of that update.

The film follows hero, Haruo, who is selected to return to Earth with one purpose in mind after witnessing his parents death before his eyes: defeat Godzilla.

In the comics, Alice is a girl of Irish descent, kidnapped as an infant by fairies, until she’s rescued by Hellboy.

The casting can slowly point us in a direction as to where the film will go, with many of the more popular comic stories coming to the forefront for Big Red.
It’s been a roller coaster of ups and downs, will he’s, and won’t he’s, in the case of Daniel Craig returning as James Bond for the 25th film in the franchise. Now, thanks to the man himself, we have confirmation. Daniel Craig is set to reprise the role of James Bond in Bond 25.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters is in full swing, with production being 41 days in, and the teases continue to follow. This morning, director Mike Dougherty teased a fascinating connection to the 1954 original film, showing a picture of the original Oxygen Destroyer, created by that film’s Dr. Serizawa. The device would remove the oxygen from any body of water it was placed in, effectively defeating Godzilla.
Ken Watanabe played a Dr. Serizawa in the 2014 film, and is reprising his role for the sequel, but it’s unclear how his character may fit with this device, given they are meant to be two separate characters. Hit the jump to take a look at the initial tweet from Mike Dougherty.

Slash Film has gotten their hands on one heck of a scoop, claiming that the currently ongoing reshoots for this November’s Justice League are completely removing a cliffhanger ending from the film. The ending in question saw the arrival of Darkseid on Earth, setting up the sequel for the film. However, given the current state of DC’s film slate, it makes sense to leave that reveal for later.
Wonder Woman star, Robin Wright, who played Antiope, is being brought back for flashbacks in the film, that will show the origin of Steppenwolf, and his arrival. What are your thoughts on the update, and now lack of Darkseid. Given the upcoming slate, this could be quite a blessing, to have such a large shadow still looming over the DCEU, much like Thanos in the MCU.
Sony Pictures has set a release date for the upcoming Spider-Man spinoff film, Silver & Black, for a February 8, 2019 release date. The film stars Felicia Hardy a.k.a.

In a shocking move, Disney has pulled out of U.S. distribution for the popular Studio Ghibli animated films, 20 years after the initial landmark deal. New York-based distributor GKIDS now has sole rights to Ghibli’s catalog in America, with the exceptions of 2013’s The Wind Rises and Grave of the Fireflies. Disney will continue distribution in European territories, however.
GKIDS has earlier in the year made lesser-known Studio Ghibli titles Oceans Waves and Only Yesterday available on DVD and Blu-Ray. They will also distribute My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away, Ponyo, Howl’s Moving Castle, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Princess Mononoke, Castle in the Sky and Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind on DVD and Blu-Ray in October, with My Neighbor the Yamadas available in early 2018.
The Tracking Board is reporting that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story star Riz Ahmed is in final talks to star alongside Tom Hardy in the upcoming Venom film in a mystery role along with Matt Smith, Pedro Pascal and Mathias Schoenarts. While the role is a mystery, several outlets are reporting that he’s playing Cletus Kasady, aka Carnage, the rumored villain of the film.
Carnage is the spawn of Venom, and a crazed psychopathic symbiote hell-bent on death and destruction with its host. Carnage’s red color comes from its intensely close blood bond between the symbiote and Kasady after it entered his blood-stream.
