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.
