J.J. Abrams already has hopes for a third Cloverfield. The Walking Dead will try its best to keep its new villain’s fondness for foul language. Karen Gillan teases her return to Guardians of the Galaxy. Plus, a new trailer for Penny Dreadful, and Kara gets a strange new look on Supergirl. To me, my spoilers!
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Michael K. Williams has confirmed a familiar face appearing in the film: Slimer the Ghost.
I’m not going to lie, working with Melissa, and Kristen, and Kate, was really dope. But I got to work with Slimer, dude. Like Slimer!!! I’m in a scene with Slimer! I’m a huge Ghostbusters fan and it was a dream come true.
J.J. Abrams says there’s already plans for a third film in the cryptic franchise:
I think that would be presumptuous, because we’re talking about this movie and comparing it to Cloverfield, but I would be lying if I didn’t say there was something else that, if we’re lucky enough to do it, could be really cool that connects some stories.
This is just this movie, and it’s only two films that we’re talking about right now. There is something else that we’d like to do, and hopefully we’ll get a shot.
Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2
Karen Gillan has posted a teasing picture of her return to filming (and to the makeup department, to get ready as Nebula) on Twitter.

The Walking Dead
Robert Kirkman discusses how the show plans to approach Negan’s extremely colourful language in the comics:
I would say that there are certain words that try as I might, we are not allowed to say on AMC, and those are certain words that Negan likes to say. So those words are going to be filmed, and people are going to be able to get those words, but there are definitely some broadcast limitations that we’re going to have to deal with.
We’re sorting that out now, but I will say that, worst-case scenario, the extras will be extra-special on Blu-ray. I mean, we’re trying to explore some other more interesting options, but that’s the bare minimum of what we’ll be doing.
Robert Kirkman and David Alpert will produce this series, set in the run-up to a civilisation-destroying meteor smashing into Earth, for South Korean TV. It will be distributed worldwide through Viki. [CBR]
