EGP Website Article Image 349

Great news for fans of The Walking Dead! Showrunners of the TV series are rumoured to be bringing comic series villain Negan in for the Season 6 finale, with a casting call going out with a description similar to the character.

The codename for the character is “Orin”, but as you’re probably aware The Walking Dead casting calls for comic characters usually have codenames to avoid fans knowing which comic characters are debuting on the show.

The description of the character reads:

“30s to mid-40s. A physically imposing, charismatic, brutal, smart, ferocious, frightening, hilarious, inappropriate, oddly friendly, fun loving sociopath that is both a leader of men and a killer of men. He has both a practical and emotional intelligence, he’s a brilliant strategist, he’s pure, dangerous, murderous, often gleeful, but still has both discipline and a code. And he has a temper that can vaporize people. He’s truly one of the strongest personalities ever…”

Thoughts on this rumour? Are you excited about the prospect of seeing Negan in the TV series?

Report- Fast & Furious 8 Struggling to Find a Director

EGP Website Article Image 348

Even though Furious 7 was one of the most successful films in the Fast & Furious series (earning $1.5 billion), but new reports indicate that Universal are struggling to find a director for the eighth film.

James Wan, who directed the successful seventh instalment, was offered a chance to return to the series but chose to direct a sequel to The Conjuring instead. It’s said that Wan also suffered mentally and physically due to the production becoming a lot longer after star Paul Walker’s unfortunate passing.

However, it’s also said that Vin Diesel (who not only acted but produced this year’s Fast & Furious film) was difficult to work with and played a role in why Wan didn’t want to return. That report states:

“As a producer, he is said to have questioned even small details on elaborate action sequences, often holding up the complex production. He also was known to summon filmmakers to repeated late-night script sessions to make him comfortable with his character and dialogue.”

Justin Lin (director of four previous Fast & Furious films) was also asked to direct but turned a return down to direct Star Trek: Beyond.

The series may be fast and furious, but getting a director for the eighth instalment looks to be a slow and tender process.

Thoughts on this report? Who would you like to see direct Fast & Furious 8?

Batman Arkham Knight- The Dark Knight Batsuit Announced

EGP Website Article Image 346

Batman: Arkham Knight director Sefton Hill has revealed that the Batsuit worn by Christian Bale in The Dark Knight will become available in the game.

A new DLC pack released by Rocksteady Studios features The Dark Knight’s Tumbler Batmobile, so it makes sense that the Batsuit from the film is coming as well. Due to demand Rocksteady are moving to design the suit for the game.

Due to the time taken to design suits for the game, the Batsuit will likely only become available later in the year at the earliest.

Thoughts on this news? Are you excited to see The Dark Knight Batsuit in Arkham Knight?

Ridley Scott is Looking to Make 3 More Prometheus Films

EGP Website Article Image 345

We know that production on Ridley Scott’s second Prometheus film will begin in February, but now the director has revealed that he’s looking to make three more (including the second one).

Scott had the following to say:

“It won’t be in the next one. It will be in the one after this one or maybe even a fourth film before we get back into the Alien franchise. The whole point of it is to explain the Alien franchise and to explain the how and why of the creation of the Alien itself. I always thought of the Alien as kind of a piece of bacterial warfare. I always thought that that original ship, which I call the Croissant, was a battleship, holding these biomechanoid creatures that were all about destruction.”

This is very interesting as Jon Spaihts’ original script for the first Prometheus was a direct prequel to Alien, but it looks we’ll now be waiting a while in the Prometheus series for big connections to Alien.

Prometheus 2 begins filming in February, 2016.

Thoughts on what Ridley said? Are you excited about the prospect of three more Prometheus films?

Report- Sinister Six Film Could Still Go Ahead

EGP Website Article Image 344

The Amazing Spider-Man series of films may have been canned halfway through, but rumours indicated that the spin-off films (which consisted of at least a Sinister Six, Venom and a female-led film) could still go ahead. A new report has indicated that this is indeed possible.

The report included an interview with filmmaker Drew Goddard who had the following to say:

“My vision of that movie was a summer annual. So you didn’t have to worry about continuity. It was just, ‘We take Peter, put him on an adventure, we put him back in his life.’ I intentionally wanted a movie that didn’t have to worry about mythology and continuity. It was important to me to make a movie that could stand on its own. So the good news is, you know, it slots in very well to any plan anybody ever wants. We just need to let a couple years go by, I think.”

The Sinister Six film was originally scheduled for a release on November 11th, 2016. However, if it does go ahead now it definitely won’t be for a few years at least.

Thoughts on this report? Would you like the Sinister Six film to go ahead?

Confirmed- Court of Owls to Feature in Gotham

EGP Website Article Image 342

Gotham has shown us the origins of many popular characters from the Batman universe, and now showrunner Bruno Heller has confirmed that they’ll be tackling the Court of Owls at some point.

Heller said the following on the Court of Owls to, and whether it’s something he was always hoping to include in the show:

“Yeah, absolutely. I won’t say that it’s part of – I don’t even want to say that, because I don’t want to spoil part of the story. Court of Owls is deep, deep, deep Gotham mythology. The comic book fans know about it, but I would suspect the larger audience is not so familiar. We sometimes have to make a distinction between the ‘Nolan-era Batman movie fans’ and the comic book fans. It’s not that they’re two separate audiences, just that there are two levels of engagement. Court of Owls is very much deep DC mythology.

We are absolutely going to explore that world down the line. Looking at the longevity of the show, we have to hold some cards back, we can’t just throw all of the elements, all of the story at once. The long arc of the show is Bruce Wayne’s journey of discovery down into the depths of the physical and meta-physical world of Gotham. The Court of Owls is a brilliant conceit that will absolutely be part of our storytelling. I just won’t tell you when.”

It’s speculated that new characters Theo and Tabitha Galavan have a connection to the Court of Owls.
