There’s wild rumours about who could co-star in the Black Widow movie. Jumanji 2 and the CW’s Lost Boys show expand their casts. Duncan Jones offers up a Rogue Trooper update. Plus, a new Captain Marvel clip, Team Flash confronts Cicada once and for all, and the Nancy Drew show gets a new title. Spoilers get!
We always, even from the early concept art days, loved the idea of a Trench movie. Then, when audiences embraced it in the movie itself the way they did, particularly that ant farm shot where the camera follows the Trench [creatures] following Arthur and Mera down into the deep, we just knew that we had something very special there and we knew what that movie should be. And consequently, I suspect that that’s one that will come out significantly before Aquaman 2.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle 2
According to Deadline, Once Upon a Time’s Dania Ramirez has joined the cast of the second new Jumanji movie in a currently undisclosed role.
That Hashtag Show alleges Marvel is currently eyeing Emma Watson, Alice Englert, Dar Zuzovsky or Florence Pugh for the film’s mysterious “second female lead,” only described as “a female James Bond,”

Here come da’ Judge! @jayandsilentbob had to go to court yesterday with a comedic legal dream team that included a pair of #zackandmirimakeaporno veterans! On the bench was the honorable @mrcraigrobinson, who fought frigid Pittsburgh winter weather with me a decade ago to make a Porno. Speaking of Penguins country, Pittsburgh’s own @deathsaves Dungeon master Mister @joemanganiello was our Bailiff (with producer @jordanmonsanto playing his twin). The creator, star and director of my favorite show, @sho_smilf (as well as my costar in the #hollyweed pilot) @frankieshawisag joined us as the Prosecutor! And for the Defense - my @tuskthemovie brother-in-sewn-up-arms, the genius @therealstephenblatt as the Lawyer (who sounds an awful lot like a Bobby Long-less Brandon St. Randy)! Reboot looks like my extended family scrap book, with cameos from folks I’ve worked with for years (and a few famous folks I’ve never met before but am looking forward to making pretend beside). And these fine folks flew all the way to #nola the day before #mardigras to fling funny around and make my movie better. And since I know what they got paid, I’m relatively sure they didn’t do it for the meager money. There’s a lot of love in this photo (which more resembles the key art for a “Night Court” reboot than the actual scene we shot yesterday). I appreciate that love and send it right back to my fellow thespians for making the cross-country Reboot-y Call! #KevinSmith #jasonmewes #craigrobinson #justinlong #frankieshaw #joemanganiello #deathsaves #jayandsilentbobreboot #JayandSilentBob #JayandSilentBobStrikeBack #indiefilm #indiefilmmaking @dpronlevy @traceylandon @destrofilms @jaymewes @jayandsilentbob @jordanmonsanto @kylebonokaplan ???? @saban_films @universalpictures @skitbags @hideoutpictures @legionmofficial
Duncan Jones described his script for his upcoming Rogue Trooper movie as a cross between Guardians of the Galaxy and The Raid.
Little self-congratulatory tweet here but... Im writing away on the Rogue Trooper script, and I fuckin' love it! ????
Action, fun, horror-
Like Guardians of the Galaxy had a baby with The Raid.
