Disney seems to think they’ve struck gold with the whole live action remake of old animated movies thing. Who knows, maybe they have, I guess we’ll have to wait and see how Beauty and the Beast and the newly announced Mulan fair at making the big bucks. Source: THR

Bryan Singer revealed on his Instagram that Angel will be joining our mutant heroes in X-Men: Apocalypse. It’s pretty unlikely that Ben Foster will even be asked to come back and reprise the role, so keep your ears open for any casting news. I know I will. Source: Instagram

Two new actors have been added to the Suicide Squad movie, although who they will be playing is still a mystery. Rumor has it that new addition boxer Raymond Olubowale could be playing King Shark, which would be freaking AWESOME. Source: Instagram

The other new addition is Scott Eastwood, and the rumor mill is running amok with whom he might play because in all honesty no one has any idea. Popular ideas at this point are Batman himself (weird), Steve Trevor (meh), or even Hush (YES!). Source: eTalk

Ryan Reynolds is still “fighting the good fight” and trying to ensure his upcoming Deadpool movie will have an R rating. The studio wants it to be PG-13 because obviously they’d rather compromise a character’s integrity in order to make all the moneys. Let’s hope we don’t get a family friendly version of Deadpool next February. Source: Twitter

Aaaaand he also revealed his new Deadpool ready physique while taking an adorable picture with a kid at the gym. Trust me, it was worth sharing. Source: Twitter

The premiere of the Netflix Original TV series Daredevil is growing ever closer and today they tried to hype people up with a new TV spot and a pretty neat series of banner posters of the characters. Daredevil is not one of my faves, but this show has a lot of promise. It even has Fulton from The Mighty Ducks! You can see the posters here. And you can watch the TV spot below:

Universal released a new TV spot for the upcoming Jurassic World. Maybe it’s just me, and the reoccurring nightmares about dinosaurs I’ve been having since I was a child, but this movie looks like it might have some genuinely scary action in it. You could not pay me to miss it. You can see the new spot below:

As it turns out the little mentioned since 2012 Metal Gear Solid movie is still in the works! Sony has hired Jay Basu (Monsters: Dark Continent) to write the movie, which will be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer).

Filming dates, location and title have all been revealed for the new Tron movie. Apparently Tron 3: Ascension will be filming in Vancouver Fall 2015 through February 2016.

The adorable and fierce Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) will be taking on the Doctor this fall. She will be guest starring in at least one episode of the upcoming season of Doctor Who and rumor has it she’ll be a bad guy. Awesome and adorable. Source: Deadline
