Despite reports on the various projects he’s had brewing for some time, Guillermo del Toro remained predictably unpredictable when he recently decided to move forward on a project that no one knew much about. We do know it’s a Cold War romance with a fantasy element, and we know it stars Sally Hawkins and Octavia Spencer — and if this new report is to be believed, then we may also know a few more details, including a new cast member and a title.
Of the original Avengers cast, only Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye and Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow haven’t starred in their own solo movies. While audiences only really warmed up to Hawkeye thanks to his arc in Age of Ultron, fans have been enamored with Black Widow since she made her debut in the otherwise-underwhelming Iron Man 2. There’s been talk off and on over the last few years about a Black Widow solo movie, and just in case the people in suits over at Marvel are wondering: yes, audiences still very much want to see it.
Over the last couple of years, we’ve heard a lot about Universal’s plans for a new shared universe of movies based on their classic monsters, and yet only one of those films — The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise — is currently in production.

Meet the newest additions, good and bad, as the latest Powers Season 2 featurette recaps both the story so far, and what dangers lie ahead for the new episodes.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will receive a major overhaul for Season 2 (it could probably use it), and ahead of that beloved mystery character joining the finale, we know of two other heroes joining for Season 2. Get ready to meet a charming superpowered scoundrel and a female World War II hero with two new additions to the cast!
Ever one to let sleeping properties lie, Dan Aykroyd is at last dragging The Blues Brothers out of retirement (again), and into the animated world. The former SNL bit will return as a new primetime animated series shepherded by Aykroyd, in search of music, truth, justice and “a better breakfast sandwich.”
Already a comedic gem, HBO’s Silicon Valley seems to find at least one yearly scene worthy of headline, whether the elaborate hand job proof of Season 1, or a monkey making creative use of a prosthetic arm last year, and Season 3 is no different. Yes, the graphic depiction of horse sex has breached Silicon Valley, and shock of shocks, PETA is none-too-thrilled about it.
I like that this video explains who the Ninja Turtles are, for the benefit of those people who have been living in a cave (or maybe a sewer) since the late 1980s and have somehow avoided one of the six previous movies, five television shows, hundreds of toys, comics, and video games about these characters. “Oh Donatello is the purple one, ohhhhhh. For the last 30 years, I thought that was Raphael! My bad.”
