Supergirl casts another DC comics character. The cast and crew of Doctor Strange discuss the Sorcerer Supreme’s origins. Syfy has three new shows in the works — including a Grant Morrison adaptation. Plus, new looks at Resident Evil: The Final Chapter and the return of Gotham. To me, my spoilers!
Tom Holland has posted a cryptic new image to Instagram of him and several other members of the Homecoming cast at Porsche’s headquarters in Atlanta, where the film is currently in production.
While it might be a personal visit during a break from filming, Porsche’s HQ was actually used in Age of Ultron and Civil War as the location of the New Avengers’ base, so there’s a good chance that Spider-Man pays the building a visit in the film.
