Gremlins , we are actively talking about that. So that’s what I’m working on with my production company 1492 Pictures…it will almost definitely be a reboot.

In the latest issue of Empire, Josh Brolin revealed he’s open to play Cable at least three more times.
We think about it in four movie terms. We tried to think of Cable as a full arc, not just in this movie, but in the trajectory of four films. That made it a lot more fun for me.
Deadpool gets into a showdown with Cable in the latest TV spot.
Finally, Empire has a new image of Deadpool, Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead attempting to console Julian Dennison’s mysterious, possibly pyrokinetic character.

James Wan revealed on Twitter that Randall Park’s character, Dr. Shin, has been “in the script since day one,” it’s just that his scenes are only just being shot as part of the film’s pickups.
Hiya Grace! Love your stuff, so I’ll speak up. I didn’t add a new character now, Dr Shin was in the script since day one. I had cast Randall a year ago in Aust (I’m a big fan of his/love FOTB), but I didn’t shoot his stuff till now. Hence, it’s literally “pickups” w him. Cheers. https://t.co/VOnXKW0zJV

Deadline reports Beth Schwartz will take over for Wendy Mericle and Marc Guggenheim as the sole showrunner of Arrow‘s seventh season.
Following the “cataclysmic” that rocks Gotham in its upcoming season finale — which, given that it’s named “No Man’s Land,” could be a giant earthquake in reference to the similar events that happen in the comic of the same name — executive producer Danny Canon stated season five is “a different show.”
Like I said, the catastrophic event, the cataclysmic event that happens in the last three episodes not only will change Gotham. It not only combines so many characters that you don’t think will cooperate with each other, but it changes the face of Gotham forever, so that season five, it’s almost a reboot and a different show.
Finally, Citizen Cold returns to put a nuclear meta on ice in the trailer for next week’s episode, “Rogue Fury.”
