We previously learned that neither Patrick Stewart nor Ian McKellen will be appearing in X-Men: Apocalypse, as the new sequel focuses more on the younger cast. But Bryan Singer’s latest photo from the set may be giving fans a glimmer of hope, with Stewart paying the production a little visit.

Deadpool wasn’t the only character who wasn’t properly represented in X-Men Origins: Wolverine — Gambit was also fairly disappointing in that film, leading many fans to wonder if we’d ever see a decent version of the character on the big screen. We’re finally getting our wish with Channing Tatum in the role of the Cajun mutant, and new info on the film not only reveals that it will begin shooting this fall, but gives us some idea of the players involved.

While his honesty is quite admirable, perhaps Charlie Hunnam shouldn’t be biting the hand that feeds him — but that’s what he did in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly. While discussing his upcoming role in Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur movie (where he apparently plays a Knight who sells Levi’s jeans in catalogs), the conversation turned to effects, which then turned to Pacific Rim, which then led to Hunnam sticking his foot in his mouth and then trying unsuccessfully to remove it.

First of all, can we take a moment to appreciate the way Aidan Gillen says “the scorch” in this new trailer for Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials? Now that we got that out of the way, the latest trailer for the upcoming YA sequel is better than the first, teasing out a sinister new threat known as “cranks,” and not the Jason Statham kind, unfortunately.

Ridley Scott’s The Martian doesn’t hit theaters until later this year, but the director is already lining up his next ambitious project: The Cartel, based on the best-selling, and much-buzzed-about book by Don Winslow. In addition, 20th Century Fox is reportedly eyeing Leonardo DiCaprio to take the leading role, which could attract some healthy awards season attention.

Last month, Fast and Furious franchise star Tyrese Gibson hinted that there would be a big announcement regarding Green Lantern at Comic-Con, seemingly indicating that the actor may have been cast in WB’s upcoming reboot. That big announcement was Green Lantern Corps, which will feature not one, but two Green Lanterns. And one of them could indeed be Gibson, as the actor confirms he has met with WB about the movie.

It’s a big week for Dwayne Johnson’s upcoming projects, as two have now secured directors.

13 Posters Where Adam Sandler Has the Exact Same Expression

EDIT

I’m currently working on an essay that considers Sandler as an artist and filmmaker. I don’t like Pixels (or Grown Ups [or Jack and Jill (or Just Go For It [or The Cobbler])]) but I have liked Adam Sandler movies in the past. My college dorm room VHS collection included Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore, and I was thrilled when he collaborated with Paul Thomas Anderson on Punch-Drunk Love. I think You Don’t Mess With the Zohan is an underrated movie (seriously; it’s funny and sweet). Despite mounting evidence to the contrary, I think he’s a talented guy with creative days ahead of him.

In an interview with VICE, Ahmed Best, best known as the man who appeared in three less-than-enthusiastically received Star Wars prequels as the less-than-beloved Jar Jar Binks, says that while he was the one who ended up winning the role, there was a far more famous superstar who really wanted to play everyone’s ninth-favorite Gungan. And that man was Michael Jackson.
