Last night revealed that The Walking Dead’s universe is expanding in very ambitious ways. In the case of the series’ longest-tenured stars, this means behind-the-scenes contract renewals and salary negotiations. Via The Hollywood Reporter, Norman Reedus (Daryl) and Melissa McBride (Carol) have signed new deals with AMC that cover the next three years of the Walking Dead franchise.
The untold origin story behind one of the most iconic fictional characters in history is due to be revealed. We learned earlier this year that Warner Bros. was developing a Willy Wonka movie with Paddington and Paddington 2 director Paul King in talks to take the helm. At the time, plot details were unclear but we did know that Simon Rich (Man Seeking Woman) was writing the script and David Heyman (Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts franchises) was producing.

With the recent cancellations of the Netflix Marvel shows Iron Fist and Luke Cage, some fans have been worried that Daredevil or Jessica Jones could be next. Well, according to a report from Business Insider, there are signs that these shows could be in trouble.
I mean, it’s really only a matter of time before Daredevil and Jessica Jones come to an end, but this report makes it seem like it could happen sooner rather than later.
Netflix has canceled “Luke Cage.”
News of the cancellation comes four months after the superhero action drama from Marvel Television debuted its second season on the streaming service — and just days after Netflix pulled the plug on another Marvel show, “Iron Fist.”
“Unfortunately, ‘Marvel’s Luke Cage’ will not return for a third season. Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is grateful to the dedicated showrunner, writers, cast and crew who brought Harlem’s Hero to life for the past two seasons, and to all the fans who have supported the series,” Netflix and Marvel Television said in a joint statement.
Iron Fist was among the four initial series that Marvel sold to Netflix back in 2013, and it was also one of the most divisive. While the first season took a beating from critics, the recently released second season received a warmer reception and higher praise. But it apparently wasn’t enough to convince Netflix to order another season.
Via Deadline, Netflix and Marvel released a joint announcement confirming Iron Fist‘s cancellation after two seasons. In a statement, they said “Marvel’s Iron Fist will not return for a third season on Netflix. Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is proud of the series and grateful for all of the hard work from our incredible cast, crew and showrunners. We’re thankful to the fans who have watched these two seasons, and for the partnership we’ve shared on this series. While the series on Netflix has ended, the immortal Iron Fist will live on.”
Actor Brett Cullen has replaced Alec Baldwin in the role of Thomas Wayne, the father of Bruce Wayne, in DC Entertainment’s Joker. Cullen previously played a Congressman in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, so this isn’t his first Batman movie rodeo. He seems like a decent choice for the role. I like the thought of him in the role more than Baldwin. That was just alittle too weird.
Cullen joins Joaquin Phoenix in the title role, who we recently got our first look at in the film. He also joins Robert De Niro, Frances Conroy, Marc Maron, and Zazie Beetz. De Niro will play a reporter; Beetz will play a single mother who catches the attention of the Joker prior to his transformation the villain; and Conroy will play Joker’s mother, Penny.
I know a lot of fans aren’t really excited about Elizabeth Banks’ Charlie’s Angels reboot but this new casting news might spark some interest in you. According to THR, Patrick Stewart is in final negotiations to take on the role of Bosley.
I love Patrick Stewart and the role of Bosley will certainly be an interesting one for him to take on. He will join the previously cast Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott (Aladdin, Power Rangers) and Ella Balinska (Midsomer Murders).
New newest installment of the 31-year old sci-fi action franchise Predator is now in theaters, but does The Predator improve on the highly popular movies, or will the latest alien hunter movie leave fans wanting more?

Last week we got our first look at Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites) coming face to face with Jason Todd (Curran Walters) in DC Universe’s upcoming series Titans. Now today we have a new promo spot for the series that focuses on the awkward moment where Batman’s new Robin introduces himself to the old Robin. And in case you’re wondering why Grayson says “Fuck Batman” in the first trailer, maybe it’s because he found out that Jason Todd actually gets to drive the Batmobile, which is apparently something he never got to do. Enjoy the clip!
Titans follows a group of young soon-to-be superheroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In the action-adventure series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes that includes Starfire (Diop), Raven (Croft) and others.
Titans was created by Akiva Goldsman, and DC Entertainment’s Geoff Johns and Greg Berlanti. The series also stars Ryan Potter and Beast Boy, Teagan Croft as Raven, and Anna Diop as Star Fire. Titans will make its big debut on Friday, October 12th.
