Star Wars: Episode IX

While appearing on the Everything Geek Podcast, actor Mark Pickup (who played a scavenger on Jakku in The Force Awakens) mentioned he’d been told the production will be returning to Abu Dhabi when filming begins next year, implying a return to Rey’s desert homeworld, Jakku, before the grand finale. It isn’t the most solid of sources, but makes sense if we’re going to be learning more about the character’s mysterious origins. [Making Star Wars]

Justice League

The latest issue of Total Film reveals Justice League is set very shortly after the events of Batman vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice. In the opening scene, Batman and Wonder Woman are mourning over Superman’s grave when Steppenwolf makes his presence known. [We Got This Covered]

In related news, Ray Fisher told Comic Book his portrayal of Cyborg is “for a new era”:

He’s a very real and grounded character and that’s something I found very interesting to bring to the table. I love the cartoon, but this is a different Cyborg, for a new era.

An hour-long sci-fi drama is in development at Fox from the writers of the National Lampoon’s Vacation remake. The series will focus on the idle rich using a voyeuristic technology to hijack the young and virile bodies of the financially destitute living on a paradise island. [Variety]


Speaking with CBR, Melissa Benoist discussed the dual identities of Supergirl and how they both get questioned in the new season.

It’s a couple months past where we left off. When we pick up in season three, Kara has very much dedicated herself to Supergirl, and I don’t think she really wants to address what happened for Kara Danvers personally, because that was such a massive heartbreak for her. So the balance is a little off-kilter right now, and this season I think we’re really going to explore her identity. She’s really questioning whether she’s a human or an alien and which she wants to be.
