Toy Story 4

Appearing as a guest on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show, Tom Hanks revealed he, too, had a difficult time recording the end of Toy Story 4.

The way you record Toy Story, you’re in a room with the team that has created it. When I went in for my last day of recording, I wanted to have my back to them, because usually you’re facing him so you can look right up and you can talk about it. But I didn’t want to see them and I wanted to pretend they couldn’t see me. When I realised what they were going for, I realised, ‘Oh, this is a moment in history.’

Swamp Thing

Virginia Madsen has joined the cast of Swamp Thing as Maria Sunderland, the grieving wife of business magnate Avery Sunderland, whose “life-time obsession with the swamp has driven a wedge between him and Maria,” according to Deadline.

The report adds that Maria’s “poised existence is shaken further when the return of Abby Arcane reawakens a deep grief over the loss of Maria’s daughter, Shawna, drawing her into the dark supernatural mysteries emerging from the swamp.”
