MORNING SPOILERS: Updates From Monarch: Legacy of Monsters, Wonka, and More

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson confirms the live-action Moana is his next project. Cobra Kai brings back a familiar name for its final season. Plus, a new look at the anime adaptation of Go! Go! Loser Ranger!. To me, my spoilers!

Alien Legion

According to Deadline, Deadpool’s Tim Miller is attached to direct a film adaptation of Alien Legion, the 80’s comic book series originally published at Marvel’s creator-owned imprint, Epic Comics. Described as “the French Foreign Legion in space,” the film — which hopes to spawn it’s own “space opera franchise” at Warner Bros. — will focus on “a intergalactic peace-keeping force” comprised of various alien races “straining to be a democratic melting pot.” Key characters includes Sarigar, “a captain from a serpent-like species that were once used as slave labor; the brutish degenerate Juger Grimrod, with his green skin and deep hostility towards authority; the gentle four-armed medic, Meico; and Torie Montroc, a human who is being forced to do a tour of duty in the Legion in order to receive his inheritance.”


Deadline also reports a film adaptation of Hannah Berry’s graphic novel, Adamtine, is now in development at Wiip. Produced by Mark Roybal (Mare of Easttown), the story concerns four strangers aboard a train who are “stalked by a sneaking, shapeless evil with nowhere to run.”


During his recent appearance on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon (via Comic Book), Dwayne Johnson confirmed his next film project will be the live-action Moana remake at Disney.


Timothée Chalamet performs “Pure Imagination,” captures an Oompa Loompa played by Hugh Grant and feeds Slugworth (Paterson Joseph) anti-gravity chocolate in three new clips from Wonka.
