Is Henry Cavill going from Superman to lightsaber-wielding Star Wars star?! The other day, Man of Steel director Zack Snyder took to Twitter to share a peculiar pic of the 31-year-old actor dressed in a Jedi robe while holding a bright red lightsaber weapon. Cavill's handsome face is partially covered by a hood but his chiseled jaw, lips and nose can still be seen. Behind Cavill is a backdrop of dark, foggy weather. "#SuperJedi," Snyder simply captioned the Star Wars shot. While we're not sure why Snyder posted the photo of Cavill, he makes a pretty convincing man of The Force. Meanwhile, Snyder also recently shared a Twitter photo of Ben Affleck dressed in full Batman costume and »

While shooting Star Wars: Episode VII, Mark Hamill will be exactly the same age as Alec Guinness was when he shot Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, at 66 years-old. Mark Hamill seems to be channeling his old Jedi Master with a full beard that he proudly displayed while attending the Guardians of the Galaxy premiere in London.
The BBC has a new video with the aging Luke Skywalker, where you can see the beard, something he calls a 'contractual obligation'. It's rumored that Skywalker will be a reclusive hermit, just like Ben was when we first met him way back in 1977. Other story details claim that he has gone missing.

During an interview with MTV, Benedict Cumberbatch ("Sherlock") was asked if there was any truth to the rumor J.J. Abrams discussed a ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ role for him. “J.J. and I are friends, so yeah, possibly,” Cumberbatch replied. “But I think J.J. is very good at creating something original out of something known, and I think apart from his continuing use of Simon Pegg — and who can blame him, frankly — it made sense not to do it.” Cumberbatch is referring to Abrams past use of Simon Pegg in his “Mission: Impossible” and “Star Trek” franchises, and strongly implies Abrams' upcoming Star Wars' film. In the past, various websites have reported rumors of Simon Pegg being involved in the film in some capacity. The actor has been quite active with shooting down these rumors via his twitter account. Though, the Hot Fuzz actor has been spotted on »
The Big Bang Theory, no surprise, is a major hit with the Comic-Con crowd. When the show’s writers and producers gathered for a panel at the con, they delivered a consistently entertaining panel, with a few surprise guests and a couple of tidbits about the show’s upcoming eighth season.
Things kicked off with an appearance from Garfunkel and Oates (a.k.a. Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci, who played Lucy on Big Bang). The geeky folk duo wrote “If I Didn’t Have You,” the song Howard sang to Bernadette this season, and they serenaded the Ballroom 20 audience »

As the world has digested the possibility that Star Wars Episode VII will have the subtitle (or at least the working title), “The Ancient Fear”, speculation has run rampant. It’s not uncommon for big budget films to attach working titles in order to try and derail potential spoilers from leaking. However, in this situation the news is believed to have come from a reliable source deep within the production camp
Is history repeating itself? Is “The Ancient Fear” just another ruse to throw the energetic fan base off the scent? While the source seems to look good, only time will tell whether the final film will even be called this.
The traditional struggle in previous Star Wars films has always been between the two opposing sides of the Force: good and bad, light and dark. Could fans now be in store for something entirely new? Will there be a darker, »

At Comic-Con Friday, HBO announced nine new cast members coming to Game of Thrones, including acclaimed veteran actor Jonathan Pryce. Some of the newcomers have been the subjects of online casting rumors for the last several weeks.
The list includes a recasting of young Myrcella Baratheon (Cersei’s daughter, last seen being put in a ship to Dorne for her own protection in season 2) and the addition of Pryce, who will play a powerful religious leader in King’s Landing. Several of the new cast members populate the Kingdom of Dorne, as Thrones shifts part of its focus next year »

Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, »

CBS’ juggernaut comedy “The Big Bang Theory” invaded Comic-Con’s Ballroom 20 on Friday morning, with latenight host Craig Ferguson moderating a lively discussion with the writers and executive producers.
Star Wil Wheaton appeared midway through the panel in an orangutan mask — an homage to “Serial Ape-ist 2: Monkey See, Monkey Kill,” the movie within the show that his character is filming with Penny (Kaley Cuoco) — and the producers showed a spectacularly campy mock trailer from the fictional flick during the session.
There was much talk of “Star Wars” at the panel, given that stars James Earl Jones and Carrie Fisher appeared in one of last season’s most memorable installments — and showrunner Steve Molaro admitted »

Mythbusters host Adam Savage is a notorious movie fan. Not only do they regularly pick apart the reality of great movie moments on the show, but Savage - a former effects designer who did work on movies like Galaxy Quest and the Star Wars prequels - also spends his downtime building replicas of some of his favorite movie props (like Deckard's gun from Blade Runner). Savage is also a regular Comic-Con attendee, and for this year's event he has seemingly outdone himself with an absurdly detailed replica of the Mecha-Glove from Hellboy. First, you're probably saying, "I don't even know what the Mecha-Glove from Hellboy is," and that's a totally fair point because the device isn't as iconic as, say, the red demon baby it summons. It's the...

Both Carrie Fisher and James Earl Jones are true legends of the Star Wars franchise. The former, of course, played the beautiful and heroic Princess Leia in the original sci-fi franchise, while the latter lent his deep, booming voice to the dark, foreboding presence of Darth Vader. Because one was on the set while the other was doing all his work in a recording booth, however, the two never actually got to meet. that is, until they both guest starred on an episode of The Big Bang Theory. Earlier this morning, the writing staff of the CBS sitcom was on-stage at San Diego Comic-Con, and while discussing the Season 7 episode "The Convention Conundrum" and the cameos made by both Fisher and Jones, showrunner Steve Motaro revealed an interesting new bit of Star Wars trivia. According to the writer, the two actors. time on set was actually the first time that »
Walt Disney Pictures and Lucasfilm is waiting to bring Star Wars: Episode VII to the International Comic-Con until next year (closer to the film’s December 2015 release date), but are using the 2014 ‘Con to stir up interest in the animated series Star Wars Rebels – an upcoming Disney Xd show that will serve as the beginning chapter of the next generation of the canonical Star Wars universe.
The one-hour Rebels premiere was screened to a select few in San Diego last night, despite the animation being incomplete (read: not fully-rendered). Meanwhile, Rebels executive producers Dave Filoni (who also worked on the Star Wars: Clone Wars animated series), Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past) and a few members of the show’s voice cast were present at yesterday’s Rebels Comic-Con panel, where they previewed exclusive footage from the series and offered new ...

The "Star Wars" galaxy is adding another exotic locale. J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars: Episode VII" will shoot several scenes on the tiny Irish island of Skellig Michael, off the country's Southwest coast in the Atlantic Ocean. Ireland’s Office of Public Works revealed to local newspaper Kerry's Eye that a film would indeed be shooting there, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "Skelling Michael is being made available for a film production shoot on the island. This production is being fully supported by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and the Irish Film Board," a spokesman said. The island will be used in addition to locations in Abu Dhabi, Iceland and London, although Disney reportedly declined to comment on the new location. The report adds that the island is home to a disused Christian monastery dating back to the Middle Ages which may feature prominently in the scenes. »

Over here in the UK, we know how to make great writers. We gave the world J.K Rowling with her Harry Potter series and, among many others, we gave the world the author that Rowling is often compared to – Enid Blyton. We are also, apparently, about to give the world Blyton’s work on film, as Working Title has acquired the theatrical rights to The Famous Five. You’re welcome.
With global sales estimated at over 600 million books, Enid Blyton is one of the biggest-selling children’s authors in history. The Famous Five series first appeared in 1942 – with the first book entitled Five On A Treasure Island – and eventually ran to 21 full-length novels. The stories focus on a group of children and the adventures they have during each school holiday, when they return from boarding school. The group – comprising of three siblings, their cousin and her dog – find themselves »

Stephen Colbert endorsed Darth Vader for president Thursday — but only after mocking the kind of journalism that leads to imagining a President Vader. Colbert noted that statistician Nate Silver — who accurately predicted the outcome of every state's vote in the 2o12 presidential election for the New York Times — has taken his FiveThirtyEight blog to Espn, where it recently polled 1,186 respondents about “Star Wars.” The poll found that “The Empire Strikes Back” is the most popular of the films, and that Luke Skywalker had the highest favorability of all the “Star Wars” characters.

It'll be a while before you see formation of the Rebel Alliance in the upcoming animated series "Star Wars: Rebels". That is a deliberate choice said the show's producers during a panel at this year's San Diego Comic Con yesterday.
Set between Episodes III and IV, the show is expected to follow a tone much closer to that of the original trilogy than the prequels, and gives them "the opportunity to do some really new things that the movies haven't done before" says Simon Kinberg.
Dave Filoni says "when the Empire takes over there isn't just instantly a rebellion. Palpatine has total control and the Jedi are labeled as traitors - they're not a beacon of hope or justice. There's a time when the Empire has complete control of the galaxy, and people were tired of war so they just accepted it."
As a result this is almost like AMC's series "Turn, »
