The cast of Mouse Guard continues to grow. Morbius set pictures give us a tiny glimpse of Jared Leto and Matt Smith in action. Supernatural wraps its now-penultimate season. Get another look at Hellboy in new footage and new pictures. Plus, what’s to come on Riverdale. May the spoilers be with you, always!
Star Wars: Episode 9
An alleged piece of poster art — presumably created for merchandising purposes — has hit the web, giving us our potential first look at some intriguing imagery from the film. There’s new crimson stormtroopers, a Y-Wing, what appears to be the Knights of Ren, Naomi Ackie’s new character, and even Kylo Ren wearing a repaired version of the mask he shattered in The Last Jedi.
The costumes worn by Finn, Rey, and Poe seemingly match up with what little we got to see of the characters in a photo released by J.J. Abrams to mark the end of production last month.
Doubtful. Looks like the work of a #UPF.

Mark Hamill himself has cast doubt on the veracity of the poster, but, given Hamill’s penchant for twitter trickery and the fact that Lucasfilm previously declared that the merchandise art for Solo: A Star Wars Story that leaked ahead of time was unofficial (up until the moment it started appearing on toy boxes), it’s hard to say that this is necessarily a definitive debunk or obfuscation.
So who can say? Someone at Lucasfilm in like, two weeks at the Star Wars Celebration Episode 9 panel, probably.
In potentially related news, Keri Russell revealed her mysterious Star Wars character has “the coolest costume” on a recent episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Could such a cool costume be that helmeted individual on this poster? OK, we’re exhausted now.
Patrick Schwarzenegger, Rupert Everett, Alex Pettyfer, Alice Eve, Annabelle Wallis, Benedict Samuel, Charlotte Le Bon, Thomas Jane, Tomasz Kot, Kylie Bunbury, and Garance Marillier (Raw) have joined the cast of The Warning, an upcoming sci-fi thriller exploring “the meaning of life when vastly disparate lives collide in interweaving stories set in the near-future earth.”
Fear Street 1-3
According to THR, Leigh Janiak is now attached to direct all three planned Fear Street movies. The outlet also reports Ashley Zukerman, Fred Hechinger, Julia Rehwald and Jeremy Ford have joined the cast in undisclosed roles.
Deadline reports a film adaptation of Chuck Brown, David F. Walker, and Sanford Greene’s comic book series about a family in the 1920's fighting supernatural bigots in New York City is now in development at Legendary.
The Dead Don’t Die
Jim Jarmusch’s upcoming zombie movie starring Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, Chloë Sevigny, Steve Buscemi, Danny Glover, Caleb Landry Jones, Rosie Perez, Iggy Pop, Sara Driver, RZA, Selena Gomez, Carol Kane, and Tom Waits is now scheduled for a June 14 release date. [Bloody-Disgusting]
Deadline reports Sonoya Mizuno has secured the lead role in Wes Ball’s upcoming adaptation of David Petersen’s Mouse Guard for 20th Century Fox.
Tom & Jerry
Meanwhile, That Hashtag Show has word Peter Dinklage is Warner Bros. “top choice” to play Terrance, the antagonist of Tim Story’s live-action/animation Tom & Jerry movie.
Jay & Silent Bob Reboot
Rosario Dawson is now confirmed to appear in Kevin Smith’s Jay & Silent Bob Reboot, which recently wrapped filming after a 21-day shoot.

There are very few people I love in this business as much as @rosariodawson! So when Ro-Dawg Rebooted with us, I was reminded how she can take boring old Kevin Smith lines and make magic! Getting the always-in-demand Dawson into @jayandsilentbob Reboot required Ro to go above and beyond and take a few flights to get #neworleans. It would’ve been more than understandable if she couldn’t make it. But my friend made moves and interrupted her busy life and work schedule to come play with us in the #viewaskewniverse once again. I can honestly say she made the movie better! When she was wrapped, Rosario gave me this giant hug and said “I’m happy you’re still here.” This woman is who I aspire to be in life: a consummate professional and an incomparable human being. The only stain on her otherwise stellar resume is that she’s now played two #viewaskew characters. One more and they’ll kick her out of Hollywood. #KevinSmith #rosariodawson #jayandsilentbobreboot #clerks2 #friendship #sabanfilms
IT IS ACCOMPLISHED! Last night, after a 21 day shoot (the same number of days in which we shot CLERKS some 26 years ago), we wrapped my Askewniverse magnum opus #JayAndSilentBobReboot! Thank you to my #NewOrleans crew, my cast and especially @JayMewes for his stellar performance! pic.twitter.com/cqNKbUVZlV

The Angry Birds Movie 2
A new trailer for The Angry Birds Movie 2 makes several allusions to 1998's Armageddon.
Meanwhile, the latest featurette for Avengers: Endgame hypes the “extra verticality” of IMAX cameras, but reveals basically nothing new about the actual movie.
Girl Meets World star Rowan Blanchard has joined the cast of the Snowpiercer TV series as Alexandra, “a self-assured 17-year-old, wise beyond her years, with mysterious connections to the history of Snowpiercer.” Deadline notes Blanchard’s guest-starring role comes with “an option to become a series regular if the series is renewed for a second season.”
Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles shared their own respective wrap photos for Supernatural’s fourteenth season. Just one more to go!
That’s a #Season14 #Supernatural wrap for Sam Winchester. Had a little extra make-up help from my baby girl today. If only she knew that SHE'S probably the reason for my wrinkles! ???? As I enter my final hiatus, I feel incredible gratitude for my #SPNFamily. See ya'll soon. pic.twitter.com/QN7r0LlxzR
