Not a lot of pro wrestling news at the moment, so we’re going ComicCorp first! Stay tuned tonight at 9 p.m. on the site and over at mixlr.com/nerdcorp for WrestleCorp!
Joel Schumacher Apologizes – Years of pain, hurt, destroyed families. We can now all begin the healing process….Joel Schumacher has apologized for “Batman and Robin”. Sarcasm aside, the former Batman director has apologized for his handling of the fourth film in the franchise. When interviewed by Vice, Schumacher cut to the point saying;
Look, I apologize. I want to apologize to every fan that was disappointed because I think I owe them that.
X-Men:Phoenix Casting News – X-Men fans rejoice, or…don’t? The four major X-Men players of the last three films are all returning apparently. Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), James McAvoy (Professor Xavier) and Nicholas Hoult (Beast) have all agreed on new terms to be in the fourth film. Fassbender and McAvoy were already attached to the project, but Hoult nad Lawrence were expected to depart the film. They’ll rejoin Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler) for the cast.
However, a major addition has just been added to the roster. Jessica Chastain will be joining the franchise as Lilandra, the head of the Shi’ar Empire, who’s going to be on a mission to execute the Phoenix. She’ll apparently be the antagonist.
Donald Glover’s ‘Spider-Man’ Role Revealed? – Well fans, who were thinking illogically that Donald Glover would be Miles Morales, sorry to disappoint. According to various online, there appears to be a name for Donald Glover in the novelization, and it doesn’t at all match the name giving on a Disney Channel special.
At the party, while changing into Spider-Man, Peter sees an explosion in the distance and is forced to investigate. He finds two of Toomes’ men, Shultz (Bookem Woodbine) and Brice (Logan Marshall-Green), selling Chitauri weapons to local criminal Alex (Donald Glover) and intervenes. Brice subdues Peter with his Shocker gauntlets and flees in a van with Shultz, leaving the weapon behind. Spider-Man pursues them, but is intercepted by the Vulture, who takes him high above swing-level, triggering the suit’s defense system. It deploys a parachute to help Peter escape, but Peter falls into a lake and nearly drowns before being rescued by a remote-controlled Iron Man suit, due to a tracker that Stark put on the suit.
The special though indicates that Glover’s name is “Aaron Davis”, which may be a red hearing.
Quick Hits – “Justice League” film will apparently have some scenes in Gotham. Billy Zane signs onto “Legends of Tomorrow” to play PT Barnum in one episode this season.
