Happy Saturday, geeks. I hope that everybody has had an amazing week so far but, let’s face it, not everybody has. If you need something to cheer you up then why not check out all the great geeky news that happened this week. I mean, you’re already reading this: you might as well just continue.
Billy Dee Williams Cast In Lego Batman Movie
The Lego Batman Movie has a new cast member in the form of Billy Dee Williams. Williams was introduced to the world of Batman in 1989’s Batman where he played Harvey Dent. Clearly the universe had a plan in mind for him because he is now taking on the role of Harvey Dent’s evil alter ego, Two-Face. You can look forward to seeing the movie in February of next year.
Detective Pikachu Gets A Director
The Detective Pikachu movie made a big step forward this week, announcing that they now have a director. If you’re wondering what Detective Pikachu is, it is exactly what it sounds like. Rob Letterman (Goosebumps, Shark Tale) is signed on to direct.
Justice Smith Joins Jurassic World Sequel
Justice Smith has quickly become one of my favourite young actors currently working. He starred in Paper Towns and, more recently, The Get Down, now he is joining Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard on the sequel to Jurassic World. His role is currently unknown but the project will begin filming in England next spring.
What other villains do you think will be popping up in the Lego Batman movie? Will the Jurassic Park franchise ever end? Let me know in the comments.
