Film Fondue: New ‘Guardians 2’ details, and is Moon Knight coming to Netflix?

by Brandon Russell | October 17, 2015October 17, 2015 8:00 am PDT

It’s been quite the week full of trailers, announcements, pictures and more. Not only did we get confirmation that Godzilla is going to do battle with King Kong, but there’s a rumor floating around claiming a new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is going to hit next Monday.

There’s also been a lot of steam regarding Hulk’s involvement in Thor: Ragnarok, which is set for a 2017 release. Apparently the film won’t take place on Earth or Asgard, leading many to believe Marvel is ready to tackle the Planet Hulk storyline. We’re game.

Finally, we got the briefest of glimpses at Daredevil season 2, giving us a quick first look at both Elektra and Punisher. Marvel’s Jessica Jones is coming out next month, so that’ll help tide us over until the second season of Daredevil hits. Until then, check out the teaser to whet your appetite.

Rebecca Ferguson in Alien: Paradise Lost

Current “it” girl and standout star of Mission: Impossible—Rogue Nation, Rebecca Ferguson, is apparently being sought after for a role in Alien: Paradise Lost. Ferguson has been in the rumor mill quite a bit lately to appear in a lot of films, including Captain Marvel. Chalk this up to Chris Pratt Syndrome. [Deadline]

Legion coming to FX

Marvel’s Legion, the story of a troubled young man who might be more than human, is coming to FX Networks. The show is being handled by people who have contributed to comic movies and shows in the past, so it’s seemingly in good hands. No word on a release just yet. [Marvel]

Moon Knight coming to Netflix?

Speaking of a new Marvel show, a new report claims the Marvel comics character, Moon Knight, is getting his own TV show on Netflix. Moon Knight is described as Marvel’s version of Bruce Wayne, though his name isn’t quite as awesome as Batman. [DarkHorizons]

Brand new Guardians 2 details

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has revealed new details about Guardians 2, saying a very important character is going to appear in the team. Of course, he didn’t say who, though many people believe it’ll be Adam Warlock. Our money is on Bug, who was actually pulled from the first movie.

Gunn also said an Avengers team-up isn’t likely, but he could just be deflecting attention away for an eventual Infinity War appearance. [HollywoodReporter]

Fantastic Four is staying at Fox

Even though Fantastic Four bombed, the rights are remaining at Fox. With Marvel and Fx teaming up for new shows, people wrongly assumed the Fantastic Four rights might be handed over to Marvel, but 20th Century Fox has confirmed that isn’t happening. Looks like we’ll never get that Fantastic Four we’ve always wanted. [ComicBook]

Batgirl to be voiced by Rosario Dawson

The Lego Batman movie just keeps getting better and better. Will Arnett has already signed to reprise the Dark Knight, and Michael Cera is going to voice his sidekick, Robin; meanwhile, Zach Galifianakis is rumored to play Joker. So, hey, why not Rosario Dawson to play Batgirl, rounding on what is a stellar voice cast. Sounds good to me. [HollywoodReporter]

Rachel McAdams’ role in Doctor Strange revealed

The role of Rachel McAdams hasn’t officially been unveiled, but the rumor mill is burning with a report claiming she’ll play Christine Palmer, also known as Night Nurse. Think of her as the same character as Linda Carter in Daredevil, who was played by Rosario Dawson. There’s also a rumor that claimed she’d play Clea, but who knows. Doctor Strange comes out in 2016.
