Supergirl is ready to take off for the last time. Marvel’s Eternals are answering some very odd questions. The new Ghostbusters are… busting ghosts. Plus updates from Legends of Tomorrow, Foundation, and more. Your Monday spoilers right this way…

Edgar Wright’s James Bond?

Speaking on the Happy Sad Confused podcast (via Games Radar) Edgar Wright said — like many others — he’d absolutely direct the next James Bond film… if anyone asked him. “I think Daniel Craig has so made an indelible stamp on that franchise that I think you have to go in a slightly different direction… Because I don’t think there’s anything to be gained by continuing in the same vein, and I would certainly think that it would be interesting to try and – I mean, I do have a take, which ever they ask me, I’ll definitely pitch it to them. [Laughs] So I’m not going to say it on the podcast. But I do think that, when I sometimes see some of the names being bandied around, I can’t quite see it, in terms of to me they feel like Daniel Craig 2.” The only question is: would it be more Baby Driver or Hot Fuzz? We’re hoping for the latter.
