David S. Goyer Offers An Update On The Green Lantern Movie

ABC is open to, but not working on, a Lost reboot. What could C. Robert Cargill’s mystery new project with Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson be? Plus, a tease for the Teen Titans Go! movie, and Ryan Coogler on Black Panther‘s Bond inspiration. To me, my spoilers!

David S. Goyer Offers An Update On The Green Lantern Movie

Green Lantern Corps

Speaking at the TCA winter press tour for Krypton, David S. Goyer confirmed to IGN that the Green Lantern team-up movie is still in the works despite the reshuffling of the DC Films slate, before adding a less-than-confident update about when we’ll ever hear about the film:

I don’t know. Who knows, especially with what’s currently going on with the DC universe? There’s obviously a whole recalibration happening with that right now.

Untitled Scott Derrickson/C. Robert Gargill Project

C. Robert Cargill has revealed he’s once again teaming with Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson for an unspecified film project. The collaboration may turn out to be an adaptation of George Alec Effinger’s 1986 cyberpunk novel When Gravity Fails (which is currently listed on both Derrickson and Cargill’s IMDB pages); a live-action adaptation of the video game Deus Ex, which the duo have been teasing since 2013; or a new project entirely.

Silver & Black

That Hashtag Show reports Sony’s Silver Sable/Black Cat movie, directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood, begins production March 5 under the title “Tri-Border”. The production is expected to film in both Atlanta and Mexico.


Meanwhile, Gambit will begin filming in New Orleans March 19, according to Omega Underground.

Star Wars: Episode IX

Daisy Ridley reveals she’s unenthused by the prospect of Rey hooking up with Poe Dameron in episode nine.


Black Panther

Director Ryan Coogler revealed to Fandango he looked toward the James Bond franchise for inspiration.

We were looking at all of that stuff and also watched a lot of the James Bond films, but not the new ones. I wanted to watch the ones that were made in the ’60s and ’70s. I watched Goldfinger for the first time, and I just thought it was really interesting in terms of how James Bond was handy.

Maze Runner: The Death Cure

The latest clip from the Maze Runner‘s swan song proves biomechanical sauroids and magnets don’t mix.

Teen Titans Go to the Movies

Here’s a new poster – with a wonderfully self-mocking tagline – for the film, a brief teaser-teaser trailer, and the since-released actual teaser trailer.


ABC President Channing Dunngey confirmed to TV Line there are currently no plans to bring back the show:

We have not had any official discussions about that. It’s something that’s on a list of, ‘Wouldn’t that be great if… ,’ but at this point it’s only at that place.

The X-Files

Langely returns from the grave in an exciting new featurette discussing this week’s episode, “This”, written by Glen Morgan.


Finally, TV Line has two new photos of Mon-El and Saturn Girl as they appear on the January 16 return episode, “Legion of Superheroes”.
