Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace will reprise their roles; Katherine Waterston recently nabbed the lead role. It's set for release on October 6, 2017. [Collider via Bloody Disgusting]


Black Panther

Black Panther: After moving around the release calendar a bit, Black Panther finally settled on February 16, 2018. Marvel chief Kevin Feige has now revealed why that matters: "T'Challa's story is very important to us as it links to the next Avengers films, which is why we brought it forward." Chadwick Boseman will portray T'Challa, aka Black Panther, ruler of the fictional African nation of Wakanda in the "big geopolitical action adventure." Avengers: Infinity War - Part 1 will hit theaters on May 4, 2018. [Empire via THR]


George Lucas on Charlie Rose

Star Wars: The Force Awakens: George Lucas spoke a bit more about the differences between his vision for the Star Wars sequels and what Disney had in mind. "They said, 'we wanted to make something for the fans,'" he stated recently. "All I wanted to do was tell a story. … It's a family soap opera, ultimately. … It's not about spaceships." After acknowledging his age and the time required to make three more movies, he concluded: "I have to make the decision, on my own, that it's time for me to move on." [Charlie Rose]
