A peek at Spider-Man: Far From Home’s mysterious Mysterio, John Wick meets The Director, and Hellboy rides. Plus new looks at Deadly Class, Outlander, and more. Spoilers dropping right this way...

Spider-Man: Far From Home

SuperBroMovie’s Daniel Richtman shared promotional art of Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio on Twitter.


Avengers: Endgame

Richtman also shared new concept art of Clint Barton as Ronin.


A Nightmare On Elm Street

Aquaman screenwriter David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick confirmed a second Nightmare on Elm Street reboot is “still happening” but “nothing is percolating just yet” in a recent interview with Gamespot.

It’s still happening. Everybody wants to see Freddy again I think, so I think it’s inevitable at some point. Nothing is percolating just yet.


Transformers: The Animated Movie/Optimus Prime Solo Film

Speaking with Metro, series producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura revealed a new animated Transformers movie set on Cybertron is currently in development.

We actually have an animated movie in the works that will tell the whole Cybertron mythology. The fans will love that.

In the same interview, Bonaventura confessed Allspark Pictures is having trouble coming up with an “in” for a potential Optimus Prime solo movie and made a curious comparison.

We’re trying to figure out an Optimus Prime solo movie. It will be hard with Optimus, he is always right, very stoic and is a man of few words … It is kind of like saying, ‘Lets do a movie about Obi-Wan Kenobi?’ But how much is there to say about Obi-Wan? It is not so easy.


John Wick Chapter 3

Empire has our first look at Anjelica Huston as The Director.


Hellboy

A new image from Hellboy’s official Twitter hypes the film’s comic-accurate adaptation of The Wild Hunt.

Meanwhile, a motion poster celebrating the fires of hell was released in time for Christmas.


New Gods

Ava DuVernary alluded to her work on the New Gods movie in a cryptic Twitter post.


Alita: Battle Angel

Bloody-Disgusting has the latest poster.


Monster Hunter

Production has wrapped on Monster Hunter according to Milla Jovovich on Twitter.

What an unforgettable experience this has been, meeting some amazing humans, traveling to some of the most unearthly locations. Everyone worked so hard, this was definitely one of the most challenging films I’ve ever made which says a lot????, but we all got through it as a team and some of the relationships I’ve made here will hopefully last a lifetime. Thank you to my amazing husband #paulwsanderson for making this film a reality. You worked harder than anyone baby!????????????Thank you to our INCREDIBLE crew! Without your tireless efforts and long hours, this would not be possible.???????? Thank you to our military advisor, Ranger, Captain Natalie Mallue @eilatan_eullam And her awesome husband Major Ed Mallue @skip2mallue (congratulations On your promotion Ed!) Without the two of you kicking my butt and constantly inspiring me, Captain Artemis would not have come to life the way she has. And last but definitely not least, thank you to all the wonderful, talented actors who came aboard to bring life to these characters! @tonyjaaofficial @perlmutations @troubleman31 @diego @meagangood @iammcjin @jannik.schuemann @hirona_yamazaki @aaronbeelner @nandacostareal!! I love you guys and can’t wait to see you all again soon!! Here’s some highlights from our last week here in Namibia. The second plane was a bit sketchy, tiny with propellers, but we made it????! The rock formations in both #sesriemcanyon and #spitzkoppe are absolutely breathtaking! I will post more pics once I get home and go through everything. But anyway, it’s a bittersweet goodbye! I’m leaving this fantastic experience exhausted, with sunburnt eyeballs, but a stronger heart, will and body. And hey! As Captain Natalie likes to say “That’s showbiz baby!”???? Over and out peeps. See you on the other side of the world.✊???? #monsterhuntermovie #spitzkoppediary
