Last Week's Episode

Please don’t talk to me about anything but Poe Dameron until December, thanks.

Vin Diesel isn’t quite recognizable as Bloodshot yet, but it’s happening.

According to Into the Spider-Verse co-director Peter Ramsey, Francis Ford Coppola is a man of discerning taste who was “very complimentary” of the animated flick. [CBR]

The Red Dwarf movie is actually happening. [Gizmodo Australia]

Indya Moore (Pose, Queen & Slim) and Holland Roden (my dear Teen Wolf) have been cast in Escape Room 2. [Deadline]

Robert Pattinson WILL be doing a voice for Batman and it will be that of The Lighthouse co-star Willem Dafoe’s grizzled lighthouse keeper. Or he’s fucking with us, something I think will be happening a lot on the on-going press tour. [IndieWire]

Jason Momoa is HYPE for Aquaman 2, and talks about how Zoë Kravitz’s role as Catwoman is going to changer her life in this interview. [ET]

Natalie Portman defends her paycheck. [THR]

Bob Iger sounds like a real sore winner in attempting to clap back at Martin Scorsese and FFC’s criticism of Marvel movies. [PageSix]

Mike Molcher, 2000 AD’s PR director, sat down with ScreenGeek and talked about Judge Dredd: Mega-City One, an upcoming TV series that’s very much in its early stages. The Rogue Trooper movie seems slightly farther along, with director Duncan Jones’ (Moon, Warcraft) screenplay wrapping up soon. [ScreenGeek]

John Boyega will be starring in a Netflix original called They Cloned Tyrone and you know what? I’m sold. [THR]

Disney is curtailing distribution of old Fox films, which include staples such as Miracle on 34th Street, The Princess Bride, and more. Major first-run theatres and repertory houses will be losing access to running films from the Fox back catalog. Disney is still  yet to comment, and the only screenings Disney has yet to start shuttering appear to be those of Rocky Horror Picture Show). [Vulture]


Cardi B (Hustlers) and Ozuna join a long list of musicians to play roles in the world of Fast & Furious. [StereoGum]

Production on Netflix’s live action Cowboy Bebop has been suspended for at least seven months after star John Cho suffered a severe knee injury performing a stunt on set. [Deadline]

Jeph Loeb is stepping down from his role as head of Marvel TV, which makes sense in the wake of Kevin Feige’s Marvel Studios taking the reins for Disney+’s non-movie content as well. Maybe he’ll write some comics? [THR]

Arrow spinoff Green Arrow and the Canaries has started filming. [CBR]

Apple TV+ (?) will be adapting Isaac Asimov’s Foundation series, starring Lee Pace (Halt and Catch Fire, Pushing Daisies) and Jared Harris (Chernobyl, The Terror). David S. Goyer (Batman Begins, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, Constantine, Blade: Trinity, you know) will be the showrunner. [TVLine]

Rumors are buzzing that Jeremy Renner might be getting the axe over at Disney+, which of course raises the possibility of Hawkeye being recast. My vote is for Nyle DiMarco (Switched at Birth, America’s Next Top Model), a Deaf dreamboat. [ComicBookMovie]


Adventure Time is coming back! Adventure Time: Distant Lands will premiere on HBO Max, which will air four hourlong specials next year. [THR]

Funimation will be distributing Robotech, Harmony Gold USA’s amalgamation of the animes The Super Dimension Fortress Macross, Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross, and Genesis Climber MOSPEADA. A weird relic of anime, Robotech premiered in 1985. TBH I’m mostly curious if this means Macross series will eventually get releases, but we shall see. [Funimation]
