Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3
Production has officially begun on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, according to James Gunn on Twitter. Gunn also confirmed DC’s Peacemaker actor Chukwudi Iwuji has joined the Marvel cast in a role “most every big name actor in Hollywood wanted.”
Chuk has indeed joined the cast. After working with him on #Peacemaker I wasn’t about to let go of one of the best actors I’ve ever worked with – so I gave him the role most every big name actor in Hollywood wanted. #TalentAboveAllElse https://t.co/ar2vYqRt5u

In a new interview with Comic Book, producer Hiram Garcia promised the Black Adam movie will depict the character as “a monster” with “edge.”
It was really important for us to set the table and make sure that all the fans knew that we weren’t messing around, and that we weren’t making a soft Black Adam. It was important for us to show that the first guy who approaches him is no longer on the planet. I think that sets the tone that this isn’t a broad movie, this isn’t Shazam!, or anything like that.
We take it very serious. The edge that Black Adam has, if you are a threat, there’s probably not a chance you’re going to get to breathe another breath around this guy. And I think that, that was really important for us to just make a statement and make sure everyone understood. Look, we know what you guys want. We know what this character is supposed to be. We’re going to do our best to make sure that we honour that and turn him into a monster.
Without going into further detail, David Gordon Green told Empire his script for Halloween Ends “feels” similar to John Carpenter’s adaptation of Stephen King’s Christine.
I sent Carpenter the new draft of Halloween Ends the other night, and I said, ‘If it feels too Christine, let me know.’
