James Gunn talks about one of the most requested songs for Guardians 3. Scooby and the Gang wax lyrical about Elvira in a new Return to Zombie Island clip. Plus, new posters for It Chapter Two and Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, what’s to come on Killjoys and Batwoman, and a very emotional set of Riverdale pictures. Spoilers, away!
The Suicide Squad
Deadline reports Peter Capaldi (Doctor Who, Lair of the White Worm) has joined the cast of The Suicide Squad in a currently undisclosed role. The outlet also suggests SNL’s Pete Davidson is “in talks for a small cameo.” Please start the “Peter Capaldi for Doctor Light” campaign right here, please.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3
James Gunn revealed on Twitter he’s often requested to include King Harvest’s “Dancing in the Moonlight” in the next Guardians of the Galaxy movie, but would prefer not to.
I’m asked to include this song BY FAR more than any other. And this predictability is precisely why I’d never use it. In general, I’d rather be in the business of giving folks the thing they want that they don’t know they want rather than just the thing they know they want. https://t.co/hUXzvNIeOj
