As it turns out, asking Ewan McGregor about reprising the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi in a Star Wars spinoff is basically like a publicity version of Bloody Mary — say it enough times and it’ll appear. Despite the actor’s numerous expressions of interest in revisiting one of the only good things to come of the Star Wars prequels (aside from Watto, of course), the decision ultimately rests with Lucasfilm. And it looks like Lucasfilm is most definitely down.
Ron Howard’s at it again! (…which is just a delightful phrase because, like, what havoc could Ron Howard possibly wreak on this earth?) The director has shared another intriguing photo from the set of the still-untitled Han Solo spinoff, this time teasing a very familiar piece of headgear. Don’t worry — it’s not Darth Vader, but it does belong to someone who probably knows him from work.
Had your fill of Star Wars news yet? No? Good. The floodgates are officially open, and even more photos and details from The Last Jedi have been unleashed. This time, we’re taking the path to the Dark Side with new intel on Supreme Leader Snoke and his “elite” Praetorian Guard — essentially an upgraded, more badass version of the series’ classic Imperial Guard.
On the heels of last week’s Aladdin update comes another exciting bit of casting news for another big Disney remake. This time it’s Jon Favreau’s take on The Lion King, which has enlisted Alfre Woodard as the voice of Sarabi — head lioness, partner to Mufasa, and mother of Simba in the upcoming live-action (ish) version of the studio’s beloved animated classic.
If you’ve got a serious case of the Mondays, then Ryan Reynolds has just what you need to turn that frown upside down. Deadpool 2’s leading man has unveiled our first official look at Josh Brolin’s Cable, whose frown remains firmly planted in the downward position, seemingly (and predictably) unimpressed with Reynolds’ signature snark. Regardless of his grouchy demeanor, Brolin does look pretty awesome as the Merc With a Mouth’s classic foil.
It takes a lot for Academy voters to recognize or even acknowledge a superhero film, but perhaps the highest-grossing film ever directed by a woman could do the trick. With a worldwide box office gross of $781 million (to date) and a 92 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, Wonder Woman is a certified hit. Critics and audiences alike have fallen head over heels for Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot’s solo superhero film, but can Warner Bros. get Oscar voters to do the same?
Just one day before he was scheduled to appear at Comic-Con, a new report revealed that Ben Affleck’s days as Batman are seemingly numbered, with sources close to the situation suggesting that this fall’s Justice League may very well be the actor’s final appearance in the DCEU. But during today’s Warner Bros. panel in Hall H, Affleck swiftly shot down rumors of his departure, imminent or otherwise, as he reassured the crowd that he’s still very committed to playing the Caped Crusader.
It looks like Ben Affleck’s Bat-days may be numbered — and more than you might think. Not only is the actor unlikely to appear in The Batman, but a new report reveals that he’s on the verge of exiting the DCEU entirely. The news comes as not much of a shock following Affleck’s departure from the helm of the upcoming solo movie, for which he was replaced by War for the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves.
Disney has several live-action remakes in development, but two titles in particular have attracted a little extra attention: Aladdin and Mulan. Although pop culture is becoming increasingly socially conscious, Hollywood’s unfortunate history of whitewashing has left many (rightfully) concerned over the casting for both of these films, especially since the studio behind them doesn’t exactly have the best track record with diversity. And while Disney has made it clear that they’re committed to casting actors of relevant ethnicity in Aladdin and Mulan, a new report reveals that the studio is struggling to do so for at least one of those projects.
Of the two ensemble films Jeremy Renner is currently shooting, you’d think the one that isn’t an action-packed superhero flick wouldn’t result in a couple of broken bones — but that’s exactly what happened to the Marvel star on the set of the upcoming comedy movie Tag, which centers on a group of friends that have been participating in an intense 30-year version of the titular game. Seems like something along the lines of Avengers: Infinity War would involve a greater risk of physical injury. You would think that, and you would be wrong.
