Chandler Riggs talks about his future on The Walking Dead. A character from the Star Wars prequels appears in new footage from Rogue One. Vin Diesel has hopes for a Rocket and Groot team-up movie. Plus, Alan Tudyk talks Frozen 2, a new clip from the latest episode of Agents of SHIELD, and your first tiny glimpse of Game of Thrones season seven. Spoilers get!
Alan Tudyk will, naturally, return.
I will [return]. I don’t know in what character form, though. I say that confidently just because I’ve been in the ones before and they are committed to continuing that tradition, which considering how many movies they put out… I’m gonna run out of voices at some point! But I haven’t run out yet, so let’s do it.
He also wants in on Guardians on the Galaxy while he’s at it, thanks.
Rocket and Groot
Vin Diesel says a lot of things about his work with Marvel — remember how long he campaigned to play Black Bolt? — but the latest thing he’s hinting at? The possibility of a Groot/Rocket team-up film after Infinity War.
I think if it’s up to James Gunn, you’re going to see a Groot/Rocket movie.
How to Train Your Dragon 3
The movie has been delayed to 1 March 2019 — nearly a year away from its original May 2018 release. [Coming Soon]
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
Jyn Erso offers a ray of hope in the darkness in a new clip from the film. Oh, and Jimmy Smits’ Bail Organa shows up for like, a second.
Speaking of Jyn, here’s a new featurette about her.
New set pictures from filming in Vancouver have emerged, showing a gathering of heroes. Not only is Cisco in a full-on Vibe costume of his own, the gathering apparently features a scrap between season three big bad Savitar and everyone’s favourite psychic simian, Gorilla Grodd.
That’s not all, though — also spotted was a new speedster entirely, who looks a lot like the Accelerated Man, the Flash of Earth-19. The current version of Wells in the show is also from Earth-19, so it’d make sense if this was indeed the Accelerated Man.
There are more shots from filming at the link. [YVRshoots]
The Walking Dead
Chandler Riggs spoke to THR about the recent rumours surrounding his future on the show:
You never know how it will go. I really do hope it works out because that would be really cool. I like to be in The Walking Dead and I like to play video games and just hang out with my friends and try to be as normal as possible so going to college would be another really cool, normal experience in my life. I want for it to work out.
When further pressed about if time at university would enable him to continue being on the series, he responded:
Yes. Theoretically, I could take one or two classes on campus and maybe an online class. My professors would have to be willing to cooperate. It wouldn’t be easy but I think that could be possible.
Meanwhile, here’s a new synopsis for the next episode, “Hearts Still Beating”.
With members out scavenging for supplies, Negan’s unwelcome visit to Alexandria continues. With tensions high, things quickly spin out of control.
Creepy carnival shenanigans abound in a new synopsis for “And the Tears of a Clown”.
The Librarians investigate a mysterious travelling carnival where they discover the sinister secret of a magician corrupted by the use of real magic.
Agents of SHIELD
Yo-Yo finds herself in trouble in a new clip from the midseason finale.
Game of Thrones
Finally, HBO’s annual trailer for new and returning shows has made its way online — and in it, there are three tiny new glimpses of Jon, Arya and Sansa from the next season. Start wildly speculating now!
