There was a lot of great entertainment news this past week, but the thing I loved most was that fan-made trailer for the Back to the Future prequel. If ever something like that happened (it won’t), I’d see it in a heartbeat. There’s just something about Doc Brown and espionage that just makes sense.
That wasn’t the only newsworthy item this week, however. We got a ton of new footage for Daredevil season 2, along with a juicy rumor regarding Wolverine 3 and the possibility of an Old Man Logan storyline. Oh, and Deadpool continues to kick butt at the box office, so if you haven’t seen that yet, go see and what all the fuss is about.
Zombieland 2 is happening (probably)
Rhett Reese, a writer in Hollywood known for his work on Zombieland and Deadpool, says Zombieland 2 is still a possibility.
It’s actually still in development at Sony. They’ve had a couple writers take a crack at it, we’re still exec producers and we’re guiding and helping where we can, and I think there’s still very much to talk about it, but I think it has to be right. [IndieWire]
Krysten Ritter talks about Avengers: Infinity War
We’ve already heard Marvel’s Kevin Feige talk about how difficult it would be to combine its TV property with the movies, but Krysten Ritter, who played Jessica Jones, is optimistic it’ll happen.
There’s always the chance that could happen. I don’t really know, they don’t tell me anything, so I’m totally stoked about the playground on Netflix. [Comicbook]
Punisher on Netflix
Following rumors Marvel and Netflix might have plans for a future Punisher show, Marvel TV exec Jeph Loeb said there are no plans… for now.
I think that’s something that people are speculating on, as opposed to something that’s actually happening. It’s certainly our hope that any of our characters will be embraced and that people want to see more of them. [DigitalSpy]
Chadwick Boseman talked to Empire about Black Panther’s role in Captain America: Civil War, saying the character doesn’t have an allegiance to anyone despite being shown on the side of Tony Stark.
“It’s my political mission to tame [the situation] and get it under control,” Boseman said about Black Panther’s involvement. [Empire]
Batman v Superman
With just over a month left to go until the movie comes out, two new photos of the heroes have been released. One of Batman in his heavy armor staring up into the night sky, and another of Superman being accosted by the press.

10 Cloverfield Lane secrets
10 Cloverfield Lane was a pleasant surprise when it was announced in January, and now we know how J.J. Abrams managed to keep it a secret. The movie was essentially supposed to be something else but was then molded to fit inside the Cloverfield universe. Entertainment Weekly has a big spread about how the movie came to be. [EW]
Following a halt in production, The Hollywood Reporter says HBO’s Westworld has been pushed back to a 2017 release. The show is based on Michael Crichton’s 1973 movie of the same name. [HollywoodReporter]
We knew Ben Affleck was committed to his role as Batman, but not this committed. According to a report from US Weekly, the actor was frequently seen getting suited up as Batman, only to “sit around” and re-write the Batman v Superman script. That’s taking method acting to an all-new level. The report says Affleck, […]
After months and months of rumors and doubt, Entertainment Weekly says a lead has been chosen for Iron Fist, which is part of Marvel’s expanded universe on Netflix. According to the report, Finn Jones, who is known for his role as Ser Loras Tyrell on Game of Thrones, has been picked to play the martial […]
Tye Sheridan, who is playing Cyclops in this year’s X-Men: Apocalypse, has been picked to play the lead role in Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One. His appointment comes after a worldwide search of talent, in which seemingly anyone with an interest was free to submit for the part at ReadyPlayerOne.com. Ready Player One is based […]
As promised, Netflix has dropped the second part of Daredevil season 2 trailer, and as we suspected it focuses heavily on Elektra. A little over a week ago, Netflix launched a Daredevil season 2 trailer that focused on the Punisher. At the end of that video, it said we could expect another one on Feb. […]
Pacific Rim 2 has been canceled and uncanceled so often that it became difficult to keep up, but it sounds like the movie is finally happening (for real!). Deadline reports the film is indeed moving forward, with Steven S. DeKnight set to direct. Hear that? That’s the sound of millions of people asking, “Who?” DeKnight […]
The Star Wars: Episode VIII crew is preparing to transport a Croatian street to a galaxy far, far away. Over the course of the seven existing films, Lucasfilm has transformed many Earthly locations into various spots that populate the Star Wars galaxy. Most famously, Tunisia has been the stand in for the desert planet of […]
There’s never going to be a Back to the Future sequel or reboot—at least as long as director Robert Zemeckis is alive. With that in mind, what if there was a prequel? Didn’t think of that, did you? I sure didn’t, but after seeing the trailer above, I’d totally be on board. If you’ve never […]
With Wolverine 3 set to be Hugh Jackman’s last foray as the mutton-chopped superhero, it sounds like he’s going to go out with a bang. In addition to possibly receiving an R-rating, Den of Geek reports the film will follow a storyline fans have been begging to see on the big screen: Old Man Logan. […]
