Happy Tuesday, Zootopia, Justice League, Pacific Rim… there’s just too much to talk about today so let’s get right into it.
Zootopia Passes $1 Billion
Zootopia has officially passed the $1 billion mark at the box office and is the fourth animated movie to ever do so. The film was a gorgeous imagination of an all-animal metropolis and I loved it (you can read our review here). As much as we seem to be having a problem with sequels that nobody wants at the moment, this is one world that I would like to re-visit in the future.
Justice League Re-Titled
The upcoming Justice League film has now been re-titled. What is that new title? Wait for it… Justice League. Yeah, it’s called Justice League. It was previously called Justice League Part 1 which raises the question of what has changed? Will it no longer be a two-parter and is this evidence that Warner Bros. are finally noticing that their DCEU is crumbling all around them?
Hayley Atwell Is Not A Fan Of Cap’s New Romance
Captain America: Civil War was easily Marvel’s best film to date but there was one moment that felt very off. Captain America kisses Sharon Carter, niece of Peggy Carter, mere hours after Peggy’s funeral. A lot of fans did not like it and apparently neither did Peggy Carter herself, Hayley Atwell. During an interview with IGN she had this to say on the subject:
“Well, first of all she’d be turning over in her grave. She’d be like ‘no.’ And she’d inject herself with the blue serum and become a super villain. She’d break out of her coffin and ground [Sharon]. She’d ground her. Then she’d kick Steve’s ass as well.”
John Boyega Cast In Pacific Rim 2
John Boyega has landed the role of the protagonist of the sequel to the popular blockbuster, Pacific Rim. The film will begin production later this year and Boyega will play the son of Idris Elba’s character from the first film.
Superman Will Appear In Supergirl
If you watched the first season of Supergirl on CBS then you would have noticed that the Man of Steel appeared but never showed his face. Going into season 2, it has been confirmed that Superman will reveal himself. He will appear in the first two episodes of the season and casting has already begun. A lot of people are hoping that Smallville‘s Tom Welling will reprise the role but there is currently no news.
That’s it today but come back on Thursday for even more news. Until then:
Do you want a Zootopia sequel? Are you excited to see more of John Boyega? Who do you want to be cast as Superman? Let me know in the comments.
