Todd McFarlane says the latest Spawn fumbles are merely a setback. There are new rumours about Kit Harington’s Eternals character. Matt Reeves continues to paint a fascinating picture of his Batman. Plus, Supergirl returns a little later than anticipated, what’s to come on Nancy Drew, and an eggscelent new clip from Teen Titans Go. Spoilers, away!
Atomic Blonde 2
According to a new report from Discussing Film, Atomic Blonde 2 is now in early development at Netflix.
The Direct alleges that Kit Harington’s Black Knight costume “was unfinished when scenes with him in the suit were being shot” making it likely “post-production work will be needed to digitally complete the suit a-la Iron Man and Iron Spider style.” Additionally, the site purports that “sets were not completely constructed, and even parts of the script were incomplete at the start of filming” in order to meet the film’s shooting schedule.
Todd McFarlane continues to insist that his Spawn movie is still happening in a new interview with Forbes.
Those reports were not quite accurate. There is someone–a major talent behind the camera–we had our eyes on and it didn’t work out. It happens. But we didn’t lose anyone, because we never had them. So we’re on the trail of someone else now. It would be a giant headline if we can get the person we’re looking at. That said, we’re not idle. Jamie [Foxx] is maybe even more enthusiastic about doing this than I am. Even if it’s only two of us, it will be Jamie and myself!
In conversation with The New York Times, Matt Reeves described The Batman as an “incredibly personal” film “using the metaphors” of the DC Universe.
You never know whether the people in charge of those I.P.s [intellectual properties] are going to be open to your vision. But if they weren’t, I wouldn’t have done Batman. I was like, look, there have been some great Batman films and I don’t want to just make a Batman film. I want to do something that has some emotional stakes. My ambition is for it to be incredibly personal using the metaphors of that world.
According to CBR, Supergirl will return with new episodes May 6, one week later than previously reported. Here’s a new promo to while away that extra time though!
