Felicity Jones & Aaron Paul Are Top Contenders To Star in Gareth Edwards 'Star Wars'

Several weeks ago we heard rumblings that Felicity Jones, Tatiana Maslany, Kate Mara and Ronney Mara were being eyed to star in Gareth Edwards upcoming Star Wars spin-off movie. Now The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 star Felicity Jones is in final talks to star in the film. While other sites are reporting she has indeed signed onto the film. The site goes onto mention Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul as well as Edgar Martinez are being eyed as the male leads in the film. Last we heard was that the movie might be based on the idea of a group of bounty hunters (including Boba Fett) being hired to steal the plans to the Death Star before A New Hope. This lead many to think Aaron Paul could be playing a young Han Solo in the film.

IGN: Before you go I have to ask is there any superhero or Star Wars character you would like to play?

Reddick: If there's a Black Panther movie I'd love to play T'Chaka. If it's an origin story.

IGN: There is! It's been announced. Chadwick Boseman is cast to play T'Challa. And he will be introduced in Captain America: Civil War.

Reddick: I would also love to play the Martian Manhunter.

TNT's 'Titans' Core Team Revealed?

Talk on TNT's upcoming Teen Titans live-action TV series has been minimal at best. We know that the show will feature on older Titans with Nightwing as the leader. It's pilot episode is expected to also be filmed sometime this year as well. Well, Nerdist has gotten word on what characters will make up the initial team for the series according to them Nightwing will of course be the leader. A wheel-chair bound Barbra Gordon will also be included as well as original Titans Raven and Starfire. They also add new comers Hawk and Dove will be a duo in the team. It's not all that surprising that Cyborg will be absent given the live-action version of the character played by Ray Fisher will be a Justice League member in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Lastly, fan-favorite Beast Boy seems to be missing from the original team at least. The website goes to mention that a shared universe with The CW's Arrow and The Flash is not entirely out of the question but has yet to be confirmed.

'True Blood' Star Mehcad Brooks Joins 'Supergirl' as Jimmy Olsen

TV Line has learned that True Blood star Mehcad Brooks has joined the cast of Supergirl as Jimmy Olsen. As many know Jimmy Olsen is typically depicted as a Caucasian but given that The Flash changed Iris West to an African-American female (which turned out great) this isn't to much of a surprise. The site goes onto to describe Olsen as a "smart, worldly photographer for CatCo, the media company where Kara works. He has recently been living and working in National City, though the reason is still a secret, and his salt-of-the-earth nature quickly piques Kara’s interest." Currently Whiplash star Melissa Benoist is set to star as the last daughter of Krypton. 

Supergirl will debut on CBS

Tyrese Gibson Already Met With Warner Brothers About 'Green Lantern' ?

Several days ago Fast & Furious star Tyrese Gibson posted on his Instagram several fan photos of him as the Green Lantern John Stewart. Many took this as nothing more than another actor campaigning to to be in a comic book movie. Now the actor has posted several more images which seems to indicate he has met with Warner Brothers about Green Lantern! It would make sense for WB to move onto John Stewart after Ryan Reynolds played Hal Jordan in 2011's Green Lantern.

Disney Wants Chris Pratt For Their 'Indiana Jones' Reboot?

It really seems that Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt is turning into their generations Harrison Ford. According to Deadline Disney is looking at the Jurassic World star in a possible reboot for Indiana Jones. Now while it seems to be more a wishlist casting on the part of the studio then actual negotiations taking place. It should be noted that Chris Pratt turned down the role of Nathan Drake in the Uncharted feature film. Which has a character extremely similar to Indiana Jones. So in all seriouesness it seems that Chris Pratt is being type cast in these types of roles after his Guardians of the Galaxy role of Peter Quill which is extremely similar to Han Solo.

Director Joss Whedon Reaffirms We Won't Be Returning For 'Avengers: Infinity War'

While speaking to Empire Magazine (via Comic Book Movie) about his upcoming Avengers sequel Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon reveals he won't return for the two-part sequel Infinity War. This doesn't come as much of surprise because due to the infamous Sony hack from late last year it was revealed that Captain America: Civil War directing due The Russo Brothers is taking over directing duty's on Infinity War Parts I & II:
"I couldn't imagine doing this again. It's enormously hard, and it be, by then, a good five years since I created anything that was completely my own. So it's very doubtful that I would take on the two-part Infinity War movie that would eat up the next four years of my life. I obviously still want to be a part of the Marvel Universe - I love these guys - but it ain't easy. This year has been more like running three shows than any year of my life. It is bonkers."
It's completely understandable when a director or actor want's to do something original instead of a massive studio film. Let's just hope Marvel Studios can convince Joss Whedon to stay on as writer for the the two-part superhero extravaganza.  

The Avengers: Infinity War Part I hits May 2018
