captain marvel movie

 

Happy SDCC Hotelpocalypse everyone! Here’s hoping all your dreams come true in 48 hours. The rest of you are far smarter to not put yourself through the sleepless nights and stress.

Here’s today’s big Entertainment headlines:

POSSIBLE SPOILERS IN THE FIRST ITEM

Latino Review dropped a Captain Marvel rumor today, here’s the gist of it. They hear that Marvel has already cast the role of Carol Danvers and are keeping it tightly under wraps. We’ll be getting our first glimpse of her in Age of Ultron they report, as has been reported for a few months now over at Badass Digest.

They also state that Marvel already has the story for her debut film already sketched out and they’re attempting to recruit an established talent to script it. Captain Marvel scribe Kelly Sue DeConnick was apparently in the running, but there’s no word yet on what decisions Marvel has made other than Jim Starlin is apparently on board as a consultant.

END SPOILERS

– X-Files fans take heart, your favorite duo is returning to the small screen as David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson have signed on-board for a six part X-Files mini-series that will air on FOX on a not yet revealed date. Series creator Chris Carter is back on board as well, and here’s what he had to say per The Hollywood Reporter:

I think of it as a 13-year commercial break. The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.

The last time The X-Files returned, I remember seeing a bunch of really disappointed theater-goers. Here’s hoping this second reunion goes off a bit better.

– AMC’s Preacher now has a Cassidy to team up with Tulip and Arseface, and it’s Misfits actor Joseph Gilgun. Here’s how Deadline colorfully describes the Irish vampire for the series:

Jesse’s sidekick Cassidy is described as the most wild-ass, bestest “bro” you’d ever want to meet. He may be 100 years dead but no one’s more boisterously alive than Proinsias Cassidy. An incorrigible mischief-maker, Cassidy’s up for anything — joyriding, bungee-jumping, bank robbing, peyote dropping. He’s also a relentless conversationalist with opinions on everything from religion to politics to pop culture to theories on why people are better able to tolerate the odor of their own flatulence.

We’re still waiting to find out who is going to play Jesse Custer, but that announcement is likely imminent.

  1. I don’t share the hate that most fans have for X-Files: I Want to Believe. I didn’t think it was great, but I loved what they were trying to do: bring back The X-Files as a series of low-budget movies that were essentially just long, big-budget TV episodes. I think the failure of that idea to get off the ground had less to do with the fans’ poor reception of the movie than its extremely poorly-timed release (same time as The Dark Knight) ensuring that most people didn’t see it at all. Though obviously the poor critical reception couldn’t have helped either.

    But a miniseries (and the possibility of more miniseries to come) is a good idea too. And it seems like it’ll have more chance of success just by virtue of there being more OF it — even if there are a couple of clunkers in there, they’ve got six episodes to get it right, and there are bound to be some good ones in there. (I’m hoping that it’s not all aliens/government conspiracy mythology stuff and they put a couple of weird one-off episodes in there; those were always my favorites.)

    I’ve been working my way through the original series on Netflix, and it’s been a lot of fun; there are a lot of episodes I didn’t see during the original run, and a lot that I do remember but not very well. Season 3: great season, or the GREATEST season?

    (I figure I’ll also probably give Millennium and Lone Gunmen a watch at some point. Too bad the only legal way to watch them is on DVD; I wish they were on Netflix or Hulu or Amazon or SOME streaming site.)
