Kathleen Kennedy has new updates on Episode VIII and the Han Solo spinoff. Get a look at the human forms of the Beauty and the Beast castle staff. Don’t expect Neil Patrick Harris to reprise his Brave and the Bold role for the Supergirl/Flash crossover. Plus, new footage from Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, and a new poster for Riverdale. To me, my spoilers!
Gotham City Sirens
You might have heard recently that Megan Fox is being rumoured to play Poison Ivy in the recently revealed Gotham City Sirens movie from David Ayer, as talk of her potential involvement in the film has crept all over the internet like one of Ivy’s vines.
However, don’t get too invested in the idea of a Megan Fox Poison Ivy just yet — the original source for this rumour comes from some keen-eyed speculation from the folks at Bleeding Cool. The evidence, for now at least, is simply the fact that Fox has previously expressed an interest in playing the character, and has allegedly received shipments of comics featuring Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy to her Warner Studios address. While it’s always possible that at some point Fox could come into consideration for the role, for now this seems more like speculation that a surefire rumour.
Han Solo/Star Wars: Episode VIII
Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy offers some updates on the future projects, indicating that Han Solo starts shooting in February, and fans might start seeing footage from Episode VIII some time in autumn.

Neil Patrick Harris discusses the possibility of him reprising his Batman: The Brave and the Bold role as the Music Meister as a potential catalyst for the two shows’ incoming musical crossover:
I’ve heard about it, but that’s as much as it has been. It was a fun episode; it was a good thing to do… He wears a big zoot suit, from what I remember [and] the song was fun to sing, so I don’t know, we’ll see.
