Let’s Grade Each of Those Rumored ‘Star Wars’ Disney+ Spin-Offs

Over the past couple of days, a pair of rumors cropped up claiming that nine Star Wars Disney+ spin-off shows are in early stages of development. We have not been able to verify these rumors, but Disney+ is going to need content and Star Wars is one of the most popular properties around, so it’s not completely unreasonable to think that a few of these ideas may actually be kicking around in the halls of the Mouse House. In lieu of treating any of these spin-off ideas as if they’re the absolute ...

‘Luck’ Needs a Lady Tonight: Emma Thompson Bails on Skydance’s Animated Movie Because of John Lasseter

Skydance Animation’s Luck is still years away from release, but the movie has just lost one of its stars. According to a new report, Oscar-winning actress Emma Thompson has walked away from the film “because of concerns about working with” John Lasseter, the former Disney/Pixar animation guru who was hired to run Skydance Animation earlier this year. The Hollywood Reporter says that even though Luck‘s voice cast had not been publicly announced, Emma Thompson (Sense and Sensibility, Love Actua...

Say Goodbye to Pepper Potts: Gwyneth Paltrow is Exiting the Marvel Cinematic Universe After ‘Avengers: Endgame’

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is going to go through some major changes after Avengers: Endgame. It looks like Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans are both saying goodbye, and they’re not alone. Gwyneth Paltrow, who plays Tony Stark’s love interest Pepper Potts, has announced that she, too, is parting ways with the MCU after Endgame. We probably could’ve guessed this – it was unlikely Pepper would stick around without Tony, since they’ve only ever appeared together – but now it’s official. Gwynet...

Marvel’s ‘Black Widow’ Movie and James Bond 25 Hire New Writers

Marvel’s forthcoming Black Widow movie and MGM’s 25th installment in the long-running James Bond franchise are both moving towards production this year. While Marvel’s spy thriller starring Scarlett Johansson likely won’t be in front of cameras until this summer, the next 007 mission with Daniel Craig is looking to start shooting in April. But before either of them get in front of cameras, they’re getting rewrites from new scribes. Black Widow Hires Ned Benson First up, Collider has word o...

Marvel’s ‘Loki’ Series Lands ‘Rick Morty’ Writer as Showrunner, Plot Sounds Like ‘Quantum Leap’

The god of mischief deserves a writer who knows a thing or two about crafting finely-honed chaos…and it sounds like Disney’s upcoming Loki TV series is in good hands. Michael Waldron, a writer for the anarchic and ambitious animated series Rick and Morty, has been hired to serve as showrunner on the new streaming series. Sounds like a match made in Asgard. The Hollywood Reporter has the story, reporting that Waldron (who worked on the upcoming season of Rick and Morty) will write the pilot a...

‘Toy Story 4’ Clip: Bo Peep Rescues a Lost Toy in a Flashback to Andy’s House

The Millennium Falcon May Get Another New Look in ‘Star Wars: Episode 9’, See a Mock-Up

Here’s a rumor that will appeal to hardcore Star Wars fans who love to obsess over every minute detail. Word on the galactic street is that the Millennium Falcon is about to get yet another upgrade for Star Wars: Episode IX. If you’re someone who fears change, though, don’t fret: it’s not a huge change. Eagle-eyed fans may have noticed that at the end of The Last Jedi, the new sensor array dish on the Falcon was destroyed. That means the old hunk of junk is due for a tune-up. According to Fa...

‘Captain Marvel’ Box Office Tracking: Marvel’s Latest Could Be Heading For $100 Million Opening Weekend

The first wave of Captain Marvel box office tracking numbers have arrived, and if these predictions are accurate, the Brie Larson-led superhero film could end up making around $100 million domestically in its opening weekend. As Deadline points out, that’d be more than any Marvel superhero’s first film except for Black Panther, who was previously introduced in Captain America: Civil War. “[M]ost early industry estimates are certain that it’s headed to $100M,” Deadline reports, though one of t...

Rian Johnson is Still Working on His Own ‘Star Wars’ Trilogy, Contrary to Rumors Otherwise

Back in the fall of 2017, Lucasfilm announced that Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson would be at the helm of an entirely new Star Wars trilogy. Since then, we haven’t heard anything about the project other than the first movie might arrive in 2020. That’s largely because he’s been busy bringing together an incredible cast for his murder mystery thriller Knives Out. But a new rumor recently emerged that gave another reason for the lack of updates on the trilogy. Last night, in a sto...

K-2SO Might Return in ‘Rogue One’ Prequel Series for Disney+, According to Alan Tudyk

K-2SO, one of the many fussy droids in the Star Wars universe, met an untimely end in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, along with pretty much every other character. But we may not have seen the last of him. There’s a Rogue One prequel series headed to Disney+, and according to Alan Tudyk, the actor who performed motion capture and voice work for K-2, the droid might pop up in some capacity. Last year, word broke that Disney+, the upcoming Disney streaming service that hopes to give Netflix a ru...

Shameik Moore, the up-and-coming actor who most recently voiced Miles Morales in Sony’s animated hit Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, initially met producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller for a completely different project.

Djimon Hounsou Explains How Korath From ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Fits Into ‘Captain Marvel’ [Set Visit Interview]

Djimon Hounsou returns to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain Marvel, reprising his role as Korath. You might remember we last saw Korath in Guardians of the Galaxy as a subordinate of Ronan the Accuser who travels to the planet Morag to retrieve an Orb that has been stolen by Star-Lord. While the character was killed in that film, a younger version of Korath will appear in this MCU prequel. Before he joined Ronan, ’90s-era Korath was a member of Starforce alongside Carol Danvers.

‘Captain Marvel’ Star Gemma Chan Gives Us Insight Into the Dynamics of Starforce [Set Visit Interview]

Gemma Chan rounds out the last of our interviews from the set of Captain Marvel. The British-born actress plays a member of Starforce, the galactic team that Carol Danvers is part of at the start of the movie. Minn-Erva is a Kree sniper who was the star of the team before Brie Larson‘s Carol Danvers showed up, which should add some drama. In the interview, Chan tells us a little more about Minn-Erva, her rivalry with Carol, the extensive make-up process, comparisons to the comic books, working ...

New ‘Star Wars’ Film Series from ‘Game of Thrones’ Creators Seems to Be a Trilogy

Over a year ago, Lucasfilm announced that Game of Thrones executive producers and showruners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were working on a new series of Star Wars films. Since then, we’ve heard absolutely nothing about their prospective movies. But that may have changed today. HBO president Casey Bloys appeared during the cable network’s Television Critics Association panel and fielded questions about the worrisome and controversial Confederate project that David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were at...

‘Aladdin’ TV Spot Finally Reveals Will Smith as the Big Blue Genie

When the first teaser trailer for Disney’s live-action remake of Aladdin first arrived, fans were fairly underwhelmed. Not only did the teaser offer very little footage of Mena Massoud as Aladdin and Naomi Scott as Jasmine, but it didn’t give us a look at Will Smith as the genie in the famous lamp at the center of the story. Even when the first images of Will Smith in the movie arrived, he wasn’t blue like the famed genie voiced by Robin Williams in the 1992 animated classic. But that changed t...

Yes, Captain America: The First Avenger went all the way back to World War II (Thor goes back even further than that if you think about it), and there have been flashbacks to the past across the films here and there. But next month’s Captain Marvel will be the first film from Marvel Studios to take place primarily in the 1990s, and to hit home the thorwback setting, the marketing team has given the movie’s off...
