Rumour- Yoda to Appear in Star Wars The Force Awakens

EGP Website Article Image 634

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens will see the return of iconic and supporting characters alike from the previous Star Wars films, but a new rumour has suggested that a deceased character could make an appearance as well.

The rumour suggests that Yoda will have a scene in The Force Awakens. Yoda’s scene (if the rumour is true) could likely be as a force ghost, but if you watched the Yoda arc in the last season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars (“The Lost Missions”), you’ll know that Yoda learned a few things for when he would die (avoiding spoilers for anyone who hasn’t seen the episodes).

Thoughts on this rumour?

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens will be released on December 17th in the UK/Ireland.

Rumour- Details on Possible Batman Solo Film

EGP Website Article Image 631

Rumours have been flying around for months that Warner Bros. are so happy with Ben Affleck as Batman that they want to give his Batman a series of solo films, but none have officially been announced yet.

However, a new rumour has suggested some of the key characters that could appear in the first solo film (should any solo films featuring Affleck’s Batman get released), as well as the potential plot.

If you don’t want any spoilers on a possible Batman solo film this is your SPOILER alert warning.




The plot would follow the story of Red Hood and his return to Gotham City (the Red Hood in question being Jason Todd). The film would see his return and pretence that he’s Batman to make his former master look like a criminal.

The final confrontation would feature Batman, Red Hood and The Joker (similar to the “Under the Red Hood” story-line).

Dick Grayson/Nightwing would also play a supporting role in the film (after getting a mention in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice).

Kristen Hager (Being Human, Aliens vs Predator: Requiem, Wanted) has been cast as Nora Fries, the love interest of Victor Fries (otherwise known as Mr. Freeze) in Gotham.

A description of the character in the series can be read below:

“Thanks to her smarts, sincerity and a lighthearted sensibility, she’s the only person who’s managed to connect with the otherwise emotionally cold cryogenicist. As her condition worsens and her husband becomes more desperate to save her life, Nora must make the ultimate choice: play the willing participant in Victor’s mad plan or sacrifice herself to stop the monster inside of him.”

Nora was originally created for Batman: The Animated Series.

EGP Website Article Image 626EGP Website Article Image 627

B.D. Wong (Jurassic Park, Jurassic World, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) has been cast as Professor Hugo Strange in Gotham.

A description of Strange’s appearance in the show reveals the following:

“Hugo Strange will be hired to run Gotham’s Arkham Asylum. The psychiatrist “appears altruistic, but he harbors a dark secret” that eventually makes him ‘Gotham’s greatest threat’. He’ll start innocently enough, seemingly working to rehabilitate the villains of Gotham City, before being revealed as the man behind Indian Hill.”

We’ve already seen Indian Hill in the second season, but it sounds like we can expect to see more of it later in the season.

Marvel’s Daredevil series (which premiered on Netflix earlier this year) was a huge success for both Marvel and Netflix, but attention has now turned to the next Marvel series coming on Netflix- Jessica Jones.

While it was confirmed that some Daredevil characters will appear in Jessica Jones, only Rosario Dawson’s Claire Temple has currently been confirmed to be appearing. However, a new rumour has stated that Daredevil himself may show up in Jessica Jones (although only as Matt Murdock and not in his superhero outfit).

It’s believed that Murdock could act as a lawyer for Jones at some point.

Sam Raimi Would Love to be Involved in a Marvel Spider-Man Film

EGP Website Article Image 622

Fans are excited to see Tom Holland make his debut as Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but we shouldn’t forget the man who originally brought Spider-Man to the big-screen: Sam Raimi.

While Raimi admits that they messed up on the third (and consequently final) film of his series, he would still love to work on a Spider-Man project for Marvel.

Raimi is quoted as saying the following:

“I messed up on the third one. I think they’re so complete now, Marvel. They probably don’t need me anymore. But if they needed me? I’d love to. It’s great to be wanted.”

Even though Spider-Man 3 was a failure to many fans, we can’t forget just how good his first two Spider-Man films were (Spider-Man 2 is still considered by many to be one of the best superhero films of all time).

Would you like to see Sam Raimi work on a Spider-Man project for Marvel?
