League of Superpets
I’m doing two animated movies, they’re both coming out next year. I play Lex Luthor in Super Pets…and there’s like, big stars in that one.
The film also features the voices of Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson, Kevin Hart, Kate McKinnon, John Krasinski, Keanu Reeves, and more.
Deadline reports Keegan Michael-Key has joined the cast of the upcoming Willy Wonka origin movie in a currently undisclosed role.
In conversation with /Film, David S. Goyer revealed filming on David Bruckner’s Hellraiser remake is already “two-thirds” finished.
[We’re] shooting as we speak. We’re about two-thirds of the way through it, and it’s going to be pretty neat. David Bruckner is definitely sticking true to the mythology, but also reinventing some of it. I think it’s going to be beautiful and terrifying.
During a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Leslie Grace revealed she has “no idea” what her Batgirl will look like.
No, I’m dying! They haven’t told me anything, I honestly cannot leak anything, even if I knew. But I have no idea! I think probably until I head off, I won’t know much, but I’m dying to know what that outfit looks like. I know that I’m going to be fitting, like, 35 different fittings for this costume. It’s a big deal, so we want to get it right. I’m excited to see what that process is going to be like. My mum’s dying to know. Yeah, she wants to know hair, everything!
Don’t Worry Darling

Thomas Lennon revealed Mr. Mxyzptlk enjoys his own musical number on tonight’s episode of Supergirl in a recent interview with The Wrap.
[A full musical episode] would have been fun. I know. It would have been fun. And I will say that, between takes, Melissa and I do a tremendous amount of singing. But no, I know. It’s a shame. It’s a shame that this is a weird solo number, where they also picked weirdly one of the people with, like, probably the least amazing singing voice. But I do make up for it in super, super high kicking. So there is that.
