Dwayne Johnson has good news about Hobbs & Shaw’s future. Josh Brolin can’t wait to play Cable again…according to Rob Liefeld. The CW gives some of its superhero shows some fresh return dates. Plus, a new look at Stargirl’s Doctor Mid-Nite. To me, my spoilers!
During a recent Instagram Live video, Dwayne Johnson stated filming on Black Adam may be delayed amid covid-19 concerns.
I’m very excited about Black Adam by the way, I’ve been training very, very hard for that role. We were supposed to start shooting it in the summer, in July, and we’ll see. I’m not quite too sure if it’s still gonna happen – or, at least, if we’ll still start shooting in July but it will all work out the way it’s meant to work out.
Hobbs & Shaw 2
In the same video, Johnson confirmed Hobbs & Shaw 2 is officially in development.
We are developing now the next film, the next [Hobbs & Shaw] movie, and I’m pretty excited about it. Just gotta figure out the creative right now, and the direction we’re going to go.
Speaking with Comic Book, Rob Liefeld stated Josh Brolin is “itching” to play Cable again in a future Marvel project.
Josh wants to be Cable again sooner than later. He is itching to be Cable again. He loved being Cable. He told me he understands how beloved his role as Thanos is, but he doesn’t look completely like Josh Brolin.
These are Josh Brolin’s own words telling me, Rob Liefeld. He told me, ‘Rob when I appeared as Cable in Deadpool 2, my phone rang off the hook.’ It changed everything for him and obviously Josh is gonna get some career lifetime achievement award at some point. The guy is just one of our greatest actors.
John Turturro also touched on playing Carmine Falcone in The Batman during a recent interview with The Inquirer.
I’m playing the bad guy. I loved Batman growing up, but I’m really a Zorro fan [Laughs]. So there’s no Batman without Zorro. When I was 5 years old, I thought I was Zorro with a sword. I had a stick that I hit my father with all the time. Then, when Batman came on TV, it was a big thrill.
I read some of the comics. My sons always read DC comics. So I played with those for years. I like Matt Reeves, the director. It’s an interesting cast.
