Karl Urban still wants a Dredd II. The New Mutants finally gets rated. Tom Ellis just made an interesting update to his Lucifer contract. Rose McIver will see dead people (again) in a new CBS comedy. Plus, what’s to come on Riverdale and Nancy Drew, and when Stargirl will land on both DC Universe and the CW. Spoilers away!
Scott Derrickson is currently attached to direct Skydance’s upcoming Bermuda Triangle movie. Though nothing is confirmed, Variety reports Chris Evans is “circling the lead role.”
During a recent panel at C2E2, Karl Urban reiterated he’s very interested in making a sequel to 2012's Dredd.
Listen, I would love to make it, I’m on the record saying that a bunch of times. I don’t know if that’s gonna happen. I think that the guys that own the rights to Dredd, Rebellion, I think they’re developing something called ‘Mega-City One’ and it would just be great to see more Dredd, whether it’s with me or not, it doesn’t matter. I’m a fan of Dredd and there’s so many great stories there. I’d love to see them. And I have no doubt that, someday, someone will make it. It’s just a matter of time.
The New Mutants
The New Mutants has been officially rated PG-13 by the MPAA (about equivalent to M or MA15+) for “violent content, some disturbing/bloody images, some strong language, thematic elements and suggestive material.”

New photos of Tom Hiddleston and Sophia Di Martino on the set of Loki have surfaced—with Di Martino in a costume that looks awfully similar to Loki’s Asgardian garb, suggesting the series might deliver on the “Lady Loki” premise from the comics, in which Loki—as his Nordic folklore counterpart can—occasionally changes his form, ageing himself up, down, or sometimes taking on the form of a woman, as he perhaps most famously did recently in the 2008 run of Thor.
