Best Piece of News

Robert Downey Jr. revealed that there will be a third Sherlock Holmes film which is great news for the world. Whilst there is currently no release date, Downey said that they could start filming as early as this year – the only thing holding them back was resolving the schedules of Guy Ritchie, Jude Law and himself.

Worst Piece of News

As with most writers and producers, Scott Nimerfro isn’t a name that I would have known but throughout his career the man worked on many titles that I love and have been a huge part of my life. Pushing Daisies, X-Men, Hannibal and Once Upon A Time are few of such works. Nimero had been suffering from a form of blood cancer. RIP Scott Nimero.

Most Bizarre Piece of News

We’ve all heard about the weird things that Jared Leto did to get into the character of the Joker: from used condoms to anal beads, we’ve now learned even more about his method. To really get to grips with his character, Leto met with “people who had committed horrendous crimes”. I just really hope that all of this was worth it when the films comes out.

And Everything Else…

  • Terminator, Terminated
  • Iron Fist Cast Bunch Of Meachums
