Dwayne Johnson continues to hype up Black Adam (and his back). Gemma Chan has finished her time on The Eternals. Is Joaquin Phoenix up for an iconic Disney villain role? Plus another new look at Birds of Prey, and what’s to come on The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow. To me, my spoilers!
Salt shakers at the ready, mateys, as a report from The Illuminerdi alleges that Joaquin Phoenix has been “offered the role” of Captain Hook in Disney’s live-action remake of Peter Pan, adding “it is unclear if the actor has had any formal discussion with the studio” as of yet.
Production has wrapped on The Eternals—for Gemma Chan at least, according to her Twitter.
