There's been a massive casting call for X-Men: Dark Phoenix. As with all casting calls, names are just labels that aren't totally indicative of who the characters will actually be. The Hashtag Show with some speculation on the topic. They're speculating that Sunfire, Dazzler, Mimic, Karl Lykos/Sauron and Mastermind may be introduced. As well as the Shi'ar and the Hellfire Club. Dunno about specific characters, but the groups are possible since they're pretty heavily used during the entirety of the Phoenix Saga. I know I'd be giddy if they brought back Kevin Bacon, even if his Shaw was one of the most butchered characters of the movies. Only Darwin was worse, really.


Speculation that Whedon's reshoots for Justice League will involve the Hall of Justice. No word if the announcer from the old cartoon will be involved yet or the Darth Vader head Legion of Doom's swamp hideout showing up.

American Gods: Not really much of a reveal with Wednesday. I mean, it was pretty obvious day one. I did like all the faceless dancers with World, Tech, and Media. Real suave. Nice place to put a cliffhanger. There were so many Jesuses that I half expected a pick up truck to drive by and haul a few of them away. Dead Wife vs Wednesday should be fun. Hoping Anansi shows up more often next season.

Good timing, as American Gods goes down Preacher comes back on Sunday. Also Monday, because why not.

The Han Solo solo project has hit a bit of a snag as it's directors have been let go over creative differences. Word on the tubes is that there is already some talk over Phil Lord and Chris Miller's replacement(s), with Lawrence Kasdan, Joe Johnston, and Ron Howard at the top of the short list according to Twitter. Phil and Chris wrote a treatment for The Flash several years ago, and instead of directing they jumped at the chance to direct Han Solo. So now there's a rumbling that maybe they're crawling back to the directorless Scarlet Speedster movie.

From the realm of nightmares comes a rumor that Fox is at it again with yet another Fantastic Four movie, this time a "family friendly" take that is rumored to keep Ben Grimm and Johnny Storm but exile Reed and Sue in favor of their kids Franklin and Valeria, which is obviously lacking an infinite number of books worth of backstory but hey, let's be real here for a second. Could it really be worse than the last F4ntastic movie? More rumortastic is that Seth Grahame-Smith is behind the script for this alleged rerereboot, who you might remember as the guy that was previously attached as the writer/director of The Flash.

While Kevin Feige and Amy Pascal contradict each other on exactly where the Lethal Protector exists, there's a new rumor that Sony is going ahead and also introducing Cletus "Carnage" Cassidy into upcoming Venom movie. That's not so much a pacing issue than a whiplash lawsuit in the making. Barely introduced a new Spider-Man and already jumping into Venom and then adding Carnage on top? My neck hurts just thinking about it.

Brian Tyree Henry and Mahershala Ali will be providing voices for Jefferson and Aaron Davis for the upcoming animated Spider-Man movie, Miles' father and uncle respectively. Brian was/is okay on Atlanta, but Mahershala definitely killed in Luke Cage. Both solid additions to what is, sadly, a movie about the least entertaining Spider.

What passed under most radars, mine included, is that during the Black Panther trailer that is actress Nabiyah Be standing next to Michael B Jordon's Killmonger, and she's portraying Tilda Johnson / Nightshade. It was confirmed yesterday on Twitter by the actress' sister. Would have been a nice Easter Egg to have noticed in the movie instead of Twitter, but genies and bottles and whatnot. No word if she's survived Marvel's NDA Sniper Team.

Ron Howard officially directing the Han Solo spinoff. Now if some other movies could find directors (at all) as quickly as this project did we'd have no reason to be concerned for them. Talking to you, DCEU.

The Mist tv series starts up tonight on Spike TV. 10PM EST.

Based on the Stephen King story. Like the Movie, but probably better (could it be worse? Maybe. But it'd have to try hard).

I am slowly trying to catch up on 40 days of DVR backlog, but video games cut into that time. Got Flash and Supergirl done. about 4 or 5 episodes each. So lots of stuff, but overall they were good enough to keep me interested.

My DVR is still half full...

Edit:
Not a bad start for The Mist. Other than being full of cliche characters. Gay Emo friend of the HIgh School Girl. Jock with a sheriff father who rapes the girl. Drug dealer with a hidden cache of money. Overprotective parents that can't agree on how to raise their kid.

At least the first bitchy woman gets killed off quickly.
