It seems to be promo time for the fall television season:
Star Wars VII
After a sever week, bordering into months, hiatus Star Wars is filming again. The pause was due to Harrison Ford’s injury, and to my knowledge there is no word on how long this will delay the film release.
Mitlos Yerolemou (Syrio Forel from Game of Thrones) is joining the cast, role undisclosed.
Marvel Cinematic Universe
Stan Lee seems to think a Black Panther movie is happening. This doesn’t mean he’s right, but presumably he knows more about what’s going on with the movies than an average person.
In semi-related anecdotal news, Stan Lee was supposed to be part of the Collectors show room, where he gives Groot the finger. Higher ups didn’t think this was appropriate for Guardians, and refused the cameo idea.
Finally on the Marvel front, Guardians of the Galaxy is the highest grossing movie so far this year.
The book by Adrian Barnes is becoming a TV show. Essentially, everyone stops needing to sleep, and this follows the consequences. It’s a science fiction being produced by FOX, so take the news with a grain of salt.
Superman vs Batman
Apparently Jimmy Olsen will be using two prosthetic legs in the movie. He lost them in Man of Steel when Superman decides its a good idea to blow up half of Smallville.
One of the new vampire movies features Dracula as a family oriented Dad, who is apparently portrayed as a stereotypical ‘good father.’ I’m hoping I read the reviews wrong, but that’s what they’re saying.
On a slightly happier, but equally strange adaption note – Frankenstein, MD is an on going web-series on Youtube. It’s a modern adaption of the book in a sort of vlog format, featuring Victoria Frankenstein and her lab partner/ associate Iggy.
