New Logan image teases Stephen Merchant's character

Logan (aka Wolverine 3) director James Mangold teased an image of Stephen Merchant's character in the film, rumored to be the mutant Caliban, who also appeared in X-Men: Apocalypse. In the latter film he was in charge of a bunker in Cairo where we first met Olivia Munn's Psylocke, who was Caliban's muscle. 

Here's the image Mangold posted.

And one Stephen Merchant shared of himself in character.

And here's a still of the character from Apocalypse, which took place many, many years prior to Logan, but we'll just forget about that whole aging thing.

 

Tom Holland teases next Spider-Man movie

In case you weren't convinced already that Marvel has every intention of making more than one Spider-Man film starring Tom Holland, the actor confirmed that work has already begun on the sequel. 

He says, “My next project, I can’t tell you about, but we’ve just finished ‘Spider-Man’ and we’re talking about the second one and who the villain is going to be and where we’re going.”

Chances are that next project he can't tell you about is Avengers: Infinity War, which starts filming soon. [via JoBlo]

 

Guardians of the Galaxy and a Nebula spin-off film

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has said he's thought about a spin-off movie featuring the character Nebula, played by Karen Gillan.

 

Honestly, the entirety of the Guardians universe is ripe for spin-offs, but chances are if Nebula were to get her own movie, it'd be pretty far off. (Unless they decided to give her a TV series...)

 

Ben Affleck's Batman movie to shoot this spring

As we await next year's Wonder Woman and Justice League films from DC's new expansive cinematic universe, Ben Affleck is gearing up to shoot his solo Batman movie early next year, likely in time to make a 2018 release.

Actor Joe Manganiello, who's playing the villain Deathstroke in the film, recently let slip that production is set to begin in the spring. [via CMB]

 

Thor: Ragnarok is going to feel like an awesome '80s sci-fi movie

Taking to Reddit for an AMA, Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi answered questions about the upcoming Marvel movie, Thor's third solo outing, revealing that he's not paying as much attention to everything that's come before his installment.

He said, "I made an effort to ignore the fact there are other Thor films. I honestly know NOTHING outside of what I’m doing. I’m trying to ignore the rest of the universe and just make my own awesome movie".

Also in the AMA, he teases Bruce Banner as the character who will probably steal the movie, saying it will have a heavy 1980s influence and be the most "out there" of all the movies Marvel has done thus far. Count us in!

 

Doug Liman's Jumper will get a sequel... on YouTube

Proving sequels don't just live on the big screen, director Doug Liman has signed a deal to direct a 60-minute drama series adapted from Steven Gould's novel Impulse, the sequel to Jumper. Liman will direct the pilot, which will debut on YouTube's Red service.

As per The Wrap: “Impulse features a rebellious 16-year-old girl who has always felt different from her peers and has longed to escape from her seemingly quaint small town. When a local drug dealer attempts to assault her, she discovers she has the extraordinary ability to teleport. This newfound power confirms her conviction that she really was different from everybody else, but it now makes her the focus of those who want to control her."
