Rumoured character breakdowns for Marvel’s The Eternals surface online

After unveiling some alleged character breakdowns for the Black Widow movie a few days ago, That Hashtag Show has now turned its attention to another of Marvel Studios’ Phase Four projects in the cosmic ensemble The Eternals.

According to the site, Marvel is currently casting twelve roles including Elysisus, The Forgotten One, Ikaris, Makkari, Sersi, Eros, Thena and Zuras, along with an unnamed ‘Greek God’, which common sense would suggest is Hercules.

Furthermore, the report goes on to state that the search is also underway for an actor to play Druig, who will serve as the main villain of the movie, as well as two female leads in ‘Karen’ and ‘Piper’, which the site believes are codenames for as-yet-unrevealed characters.

There are of course some obscure names in there, most of whom will be unfamiliar to all but the most hardened of comic book fans, although Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige

"...and you have to be strong inside because so many people come around and try to say bad things about you.

"If you're with someone, it's because you're moving in the same direction, and you both are looking for the same thing. 

"Both of you have to share the same concept of what a relationship means.

"You can't just dream about what you want and leave things to chance. You have to get it yourself..."

‘A Star is Born’ on ‘Dancing with the Stars’? DeMarcus Ware performed a herculean Charleston on Disney Night [Watch]

‘A Star is Born’ on ‘Dancing with the Stars’? DeMarcus Ware performed a herculean Charleston on Disney Night [Watch]
Did DeMarcus Ware make a much needed comeback on “Dancing with the Stars” during Disney Night? He began the season with the top judges’ score in week one, but since then his results have been erratic, culminating on Trios Night when he got his lowest score so far (22 out of 30), which landed him fourth from the bottom of the leaderboard. Moving back up would be a herculean feat, so it was lucky that his Disney routine had him literally playing Hercules.

Ware and his pro partner Lindsay Arnold performed a Charleston to “A Star is Born” from the 1997 animated musical “Hercules.” And Arnold wasn’t going to let all that strength go to waste. She choreographed a number for the six-foot-four, 258-pound Super Bowl champ full of high-flying lifts, and at one point he even spun her around in the air like a windmill.

Supergirl Season 4 Recasts Brent Spiner’s Major Character

Supergirl season 4 was set to add Star Trek: The Next Generation legend Brent Spiner to its line-up in the important recurring role of the Vice President of the United States. Unfortunately, though, Spiner’s had to step back from the part due to a family issue. And instead of rewriting scripts until the actor may become available again, Supergirl‘s production team has decided to just recast the role completely.

In place of Spiner, they’ve gone for another sci-fi icon from the 1990s. Bruce Boxleitner, most known for his role in Babylon 5, will be stepping into Spiner’s shoes to play Vice President Baker. Presumably, the character description released online a few weeks ago is still relevant, in which case Baker is set to be “adept and politically minded,” and “makes for an unlikely leader, but steps up in a big way when his country needs him most.
