James Gunn’s full steam ahead on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Get a glimpse of a Cisco-Less Team Flash on The Flash. More Loki clips tease time weirdness and Owen Wilson’s Mobius. Plus, Space Jam: A New Legacy gets the ESPN treatment in the silliest way possible. Spoilers now!
Bloody-Disgusting has word Jason Flemyng, Raza Jaffrey, Sophie Simnett, Johanna Harlin and Aston McAuley have joined the cast of Renny Harlin’s latest film, Refuge, in which “a U.S. military veteran returns home changed and dangerous after a tour of duty in Afghanistan where he suffered an attack by a mysterious force. While officials dismiss his behaviour as PTSD, and order trauma therapy, Rick’s wife Kate discovers her husband has been possessed by a malevolent spirit.”
According to Deadline, Natasha Kermani (Lucky) will direct a feature adaptation of Joe Hill’s short story, Abraham’s Boys, for Tea Shop Productions. Though the original story followed Max and Rudy Van Helsing — the children of Abraham Van Helsing — as their father became increasingly more deranged, Kermani’s adaptation will “explore the boys’ trauma through the eyes of a young Asian woman who is no stranger to death.”
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3
James Gunn is now storyboarding Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
It actually made me laugh every time Kurt said it, as did Rocket sadly touching his face afterwards, wondering if it really is shaped like a triangle. As I’m drawing storyboards right this moment for Vol 3, a tedious task, it’s good to be reminded of these enjoyable moments. https://t.co/OrhEWVSJtQ

The best part of my job? Being able to employ 75 dancers for a @disneystudios @disneyplus movie and watching them rehearse their masked faces off. My heart swooned watching them all dance. I can’t wait to share their beautiful work #Disenchanted
And yes. I’m the guy in the air. Like usual.
