The new Power Rangers film is firmly underway with three of the main cast already announced, showing great progress after needing its release date pushed back by half a year. A new report has indicated what the title of the film may be and the characters that could be in the film.
The character names and the animals are reported to be:
Callum Oliver – The Red Ranger/Tyrannosaurus
Priya Patel – The Pink Ranger/Pterodactyl
Brian Olson – The Blue Ranger/Triceratops
Oscar Fernandez – The Black Ranger/Mastodon
Teyana Jones – The Yellow Ranger/Sabre-tooth Tiger
Four of these Rangers have already been cast (Red, Pink, Blue and Black).
The film will reportedly be titled Saban’s Power Rangers, like Marvel’s The Avengers, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow include the name of their respective company.
Also, the budget will reportedly be $35 million.
The new Power Rangers film is scheduled to be released on January 13th, 2017.
As we get closer to the release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, more rumours will surface online. The latest rumour gives an insight into a potentially crucial scene in the film.
As it’s a rumour, there is a chance it could be false but if you’re looking to avoid any spoilers related to The Force Awakens this is your SPOILER alert warning.
The scene includes the long-rumoured flashback scene that had everyone talking months ago.
A summary of the long sequence is below:
Maz leads the heroes (Han, Finn, and Rey) down a staircase into the catacombs of her castle, while she explains who Luke was, retelling the events of the original trilogy.
When they enter the chamber in the catacombs, Maz continues the story and it goes to flashbacks (the rest of what follows takes place in flashbacks).
Luke returns to his academy and everyone is dead, they have been slaughtered.
We then see the outside shot of Luke saying goodbye to R2 from the trailers.
It appears it was the Knights of Ren who did this.
Maz explains that Luke retreats into private life.
We then see Naka’s hand picks up the lightsaber (which is a reprise of what we saw at the beginning of the film), we then see him turn it on in his house and accidentally sets it on fire. He runs away and then has to go back to get the lightsaber.
Naka sells the Saber to a trader for next to nothing.
The Clan is lead by a prosperous rich man.
The Knights of Ren have raided the Clan before.
The Clan leader goes to the trader and buys the saber to defend against the Knights of Ren.
The Clan fights the Knights of Ren and loses.
Rey and her parents were part of the Clan, but they escape the attack.
Shot from the trailer is the Knights of Ren after having slaughtered the Clan.
Kylo sees Rey during the attack.
Kylo gets the Saber, but Maz steals it.
The family gets away and drops Rey off on Jakku and have never gone back for her.
Nathan Darrow (House of Cards, Rigged) has been cast as Victor Fries/Mr. Freeze in Gotham.
Darrow’s Fries will be a recurring character on the show, with his first episode coming in December. He will then get a two-part arc (which includes episode 12 and 13) in the shows on-going second season.
A description of the character as he will appear in the show is below:
“Though ferociously smart and eminently capable in his work as one of Gotham’s preeminent cryogenics engineers, Victor struggles to make meaningful connections with others. The one exception is his wife, Nora (casting TBA), who has tragically fallen ill with a terminal disease. Victor’s love for Nora knows no bounds, so as her condition worsens, he goes to extreme measures to figure out a way to freeze her before she dies. This harrowing journey leads to his transformation into the legendary DC villain, Mr. Freeze.”
Rumours have been circling for months that Chris Pine (Star Trek, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit) would be cast in DC’s upcoming Wonder Woman film, likely as the title characters boyfriend Steve Trevor.
While he didn’t confirm the character he will be playing, Pine has finally revealed that he has indeed been cast in Wonder Woman.
Pine is quoted as saying the following:
“I’m super excited, of course, Gal Gadot is super talented, Patty Jenkins will perform, and we will shoot in film … What excites me most is to turn in a movie with a superhero woman. With a woman in the lead role. I am a team with this intelligent, beautiful and strong [woman] to destroy the wicked and save humanity. The routine, whatever.”
We’ll have to wait for official details on the character he’ll be playing, though rumours are bound to persist that he will play Steve Trevor.
Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens will be remembered for its new characters and the return of legendary characters like Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Leia Organa. However, another character from the original trilogy is now confirmed to be appearing in the film.
Nien Nunb (Lando Calrissian’s co-pilot in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi) will be appearing in The Force Awakens. The news comes from Mike Quinn, the puppeteer for Nunb on Return of the Jedi, who confirmed the news on his Facebook profile.
Quinn also confirmed that Nunb will be seen wearing an upgraded version of his old red and black clothing from Return of the Jedi.
Rumours had circled around since last year that Nunb would be returning, but thanks to Mike Quinn, Star Wars fans now have official confirmation.
Are you excited to see Nien Nunb in The Force Awakens?
