Ezra Miller Is Still Getting His Flash Standalone Movie?
It looks like the long awaited Flash movie might be happening after all. Ezra Miller's contract with Warner Bros. expired back in May and many just assumed he was done with the project after building it up for years. Plus, there have been rumors of behind-the-scenes disagreements over the story, with some believing that Miller walked away from the Flash movie. Fans have been waiting a long time to see the Scarlet Speedster on the big screen again, and it looks like it might be happening soon.

The Flash movie is reportedly on hold while Ezra Miller finishes off Fantastic Beasts 3. Once he is done with that, it is believed he will be suiting up, according to a new report.

Naomi Watts Says ‘Game of Thrones’ Fans ‘Won’t Be Let Down’ by Prequel (Video)
The “Game of Thrones” prequel might be the cure for what’s ailing fans who did not care for how Dan Weiss and David Benioff’s ended the main series last month. If Naomi Watts, the star of the currently untitled HBO pilot, is to be believed, you “won’t be let down” by this one, guys.

“It makes me very excited, yeah, goosebumps all over,” Watts, who leads the cast as a charismatic socialite hiding a dark secret, told the Associated Press earlier this week. “It is intimidating. It’s very exciting. And yes, having just come off the last series, where the world was blowing up over it. Everything was ‘Game of Thrones’ related. All the advertising on TV, every article — everyone’s jumping on that bandwagon. So, it is scary.”

“But hopefully those fans come along and get to find something new and interesting in this world as well,

HBO begins production on Game of Thrones prequel spinoff

A month after the conclusion of the divisive eighth and final season of Game of Thrones, HBO is readying its return to Westeros, as production is now officially underway on the as-yet-untitled spinoff prequel series.

Created by Jane Goldman (X-Men: First Class) and A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin (the latter of whom has referred to it under the working title of The Long Night), the pilot takes place thousands of years before Game of Thrones. It promises to “chronicle the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. And only one thing is for sure: from the horrifying secrets of Westeros’s history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend… it’s not the story we think we know.”

Captain Marvel was going to feature a comic book accurate Supreme Intelligence

The Supreme Intelligence made its debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe this year in Captain Marvel, although rather than a giant, floating green head, the AI ruler took on a physical form – that of the person most admired by whoever it’s talking to.

However, speaking to Comic Book, the film’s production designer Andy Nicholson has revealed that a comic book accurate version of the character was set to appear at one point, and would have appeared during the scene where Carol removes the Photon Inhibitor limiting her powers.

“It was there. We did develop a line where within that space from the big pool of water in the back of the room, that eventually, that’s where the big green head would come out of. I think eventually for the final scene of the movie, it would’ve taken away from what was the core focus which was,

Pirates Of The Caribbean Fans Petition Disney To Rehire Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp’s been dropped from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, and the fans aren’t very happy about it.

After rumors broke out late last year that Disney was moving ahead with a reboot of the hit adventure series and the A-lister wouldn’t be involved, the studio finally confirmed it and according to them, Pirates doesn’t need Johnny Depp in order to continue to be a box office success.

J.K. Rowling Releasing Four Brand New Harry Potter Books

Even though Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald didn’t exactly hit the mark, Harry Potter fans from all over are eagerly awaiting the third film in the spinoff series, and for good reason.
