Could Taika Waititi return for another Thor movie? Michelle Borth says shes’s signed up for a few more DC movies after Shazam. The Eternals finds another intriguing star.

Plus, new Game of Thrones pictures, what’s to come on Supergirl, and another teeny snippet of Avengers: Endgame footage from a new TV spot. Spoilers, assemble!

The Eternals

Train to Busan’s Ma Dong-seok has joined the cast of The Eternals in an undisclosed role. [The Wrap]


Shazam 2

In a recent interview with Parade Magazine, actress Michelle Borth revealed she has signed a five-picture deal with Warner Bros. and DC Comics after playing Mary Marvel in Shazam. Good thing we already know a sequel is in the works!

I had never gotten a role from one taped audition, let alone a five-picture deal with Warner Bros. from a one-tape audition.


Thor 4

In a recent interview with the LA Times, Tessa Thompson vaguely mused — before clarifying that she was unsure even what she’d heard was true — that Taika Waititi recently pitched a fourth Thor movie to Marvel Studios.

I heard that a pitch has happened for [another “Thor” film]. I don’t know how real that intel is, but I hear that the pitch has happened. I think the idea is Taika [Waititi, who directed ‘Ragnarok’] would come back.


Jay & Silent Bob Reboot

Speaking of the god of Thunder, little known indie starlet Chris Hemsworth is the latest actor to join the cast of Kevin Smith’s Jay & Silent Bob Reboot.

Sometimes I like to highlight unknown actors in our industry - and I think *this* fresh face from young Hollywood might soon find fame and fortune on the Silver Screen! He’s newcomer @chrishemsworth and I’m predicting right here that Chris is gonna take Tinsel Town by storm one day! The boy is like a god who thundered down from another universe! But it’s not some kinda dark world because this guy is no black hat - he’s an artistic avenger who’s just looking to book his first gig on the way to his ultimate endgame: a S.A.G. card! So I’m gonna take a chance on this up and coming charismatic kid from Australia and help him out on his star trek with a low key role in @jayandsilentbob Reboot. He’s a killer comedic actor but I keep telling him that the *real* money’s in @marvelstudios movies. In a just world, he’d get to at least screen test for them. Regardless, I’ll keep you posted on Chris’ Hollywood progress. He should go far, because Chris is a super nice charmer who’s crazy talented and incredibly generous with his time. If you can get past the guy’s unorthodox looks, you’ll find a whole Hems worth of raw, untapped talent! #KevinSmith #chrishemsworth #jayandsilentbobreboot #avengers #avengersendgame #thor #thorragnarok #centrfit #grateful #bucketlist #class #melbourne

The Room

Bloody-Disgusting has photos from The Room, in which Olga Kurylenko and Christian Volckman discover what’s essentially an evil replicator entombed in a hidden room of their new home. More images at the link.

Kate and Matt are a young couple in their thirties in search of a more authentic and healthy life. They leave the City to move into an old house in the middle of nowhere. Soon they discover a secret hidden room that has the extraordinary power to materialise anything they wish for. Their new life becomes a true fairytale. They spend days and nights indulging their every desire of material possession, swimming in money and champagne. Yet beneath this apparent state of bliss, something darker lurks: some wishes can have dire consequences. That Room could very well turn their dream into a nightmare when it gives them what they’ve been waiting forever and that nature was denying them…
