Jeff Goldblum really wants to return to the Marvel movieverse. The Halloween sequel/reboot will have references to the past continuations. Some familiar faces are returning to Agents of SHIELD. Jessica Parker Kennedy’s The Flash character’s secret identity has yet to be uncovered. Plus, a ton of new Tomb Raider footage. Spoilers!

In an interview with The Toronto Sun, Jeff Goldblum stated he’d be eager to return to the MCU as The Grandmaster if he could share screen time with the character’s biological brother, The Collector.
Oh, that’s an interesting idea. Well, I overlapped with one day of Cate Blanchett’s shooting and she’s so spectacular as Hela. I keep wanting to have scenes with her. We worked together on a Wes Anderson movie a while ago – The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou – and I sure would love to do anything with her. But, in the comic books, the character of the Grandmaster is the brother of The Collector, played by Benicio del Toro, who I adore. So I would enjoy doing something with him. That would be fun.

In an interview with Flickering Myth, Danny McBride revealed the new Halloween still plans to reference its various sequels, despite being a direct continuation of the events of the first movie:
This picks up after the first one. The Halloween franchise has kind of become a little bit of like choose your own adventure, you know like there’s some many different versions, and the timeline is so mixed up, we just thought it would be easier to go back to the source and continue from there. It was nicer than knowing you’re working on Halloween 11, it just seemed cooler, “we’re making Halloween 2“. We do [reference the other movies]. For fans, we pay homage and respect to every Halloween that has been out there.
