Last night was a big shocker for American Horror Story:Asylum fans with the reveal of the serial killer Bloody Face’s true identity. Today, creator Ryan Murphy and some of the cast are responding to the revelation. Warning: Spoiler Alert!

Last night things took a turn for the worst when Lana fell into the clutches of Bloody Face. The catch was that it was someone she was trusting to help her escape all along. That’s right, Dr. Thredson turned out to be the sinister serial killer and now he’s got Lana all to himself. Now Ryan Murphy, Sarah Paulson, and Zachary Quinto are talking about the reveal and what’s to come!

Ryan Murphy spoke with Entertainment Weekly about “I Am Anne Frank” – Part 2 and revealed that now that fans know who Bloody Face is the next couple of episodes will get deeper into the mythology of Bloody Face. The show will get deep into his mind and explain his background to show why he became this monster. The show will use flashbacks to explain Thredson’s history. Murphy also revealed that he wants to show how society is partly responsible for Thredson. One thing for sure, this serial killer has some major mommy issues. In an upcoming episode fans will get to see what Murphy calls Thredson’s “mother’s substitute” through a flashback. That episode is entitled “The Origins of Monstrosity” and will also look at Dr. Arden and the Monsignor’s past.

Murphy also divulged that Lana has been in the same position as Thredson before. He heard her speaking about her dreams of becoming a reporter and wants her to write his own story. They have a connection she doesn’t yet know about. If you think things are bad for Lana now, they’re only going to get worse. Next week will be the darkest episode in the shows history according to Murphy.

While things might be getting bad for Lana, she will survive it…at least for some time in some capacity. Sarah Paulson cryptically told Vulture, “we’re shooting episode eleven right now, and I’m still alive. I just can’t tell you in what capacity. Maybe I’ve got no legs, maybe I’ve got no eyeballs, but I’m still shooting.” Although they did know from the start that Zachary Quinto’s character Thredson was going to be Bloody Face, Paulson says she was never told Lana was the one who’d be tortured and traumatized by the serial killer. Despite all of the abuse her character has taken Paulson says its refreshing to work on the show, “But really, it’s great. I haven’t done anything this emotionally open or raw because I haven’t been asked to do it. It’s why we all keep coming back to the show. Ryan, like Aaron Sorkin, has thrown me the ball. I would do anything he asked me to do. It would never occur to me to call him and say, ‘I don’t like this scene where I have to put my hands in my pants and touch this guy’s member.'”

Zachary Quinto was actually hesitant to play the role of a serial killer after his stint as the resident psycho on Hereoes. So what made Quinto take the leap? The actor told Entertainment Weekly that he was drawn to the fact that Thredson was a different kind of killer. Quinto enjoyed playing a character that seemed compassionate at the start of the show but had his own motives. He describes Dr. Thredson as being secretive, intelligent, and experienced in keeping his secrets hidden. While Quinto still doesn’t know the entire arc of the character as the writers are still working on the last three episodes he does say, “There’s a plan. He’s fiercely intelligent, and obviously ruthless in his willingness to create this world he’s making for himself. He’s delusional within himself. He’s not trying to sell you a story. He’s trying to believe it himself. You will learn more in the coming weeks about what motivated him to do these horrific crimes.”

The Powers That Be have spoken, and they’re saying Guillermo del Toro will not be making a third Hellboy installment.

Fans across the globe are shedding tears as we learn that director/writer del Toro will not be helming another Hellboy movie. It’s time to punch something, smoke a cigar, and then find a kitten before you settle in for the bad news.

In mid-January, del Toro asked fans to vote in a 24-hour poll to show support for making Hellboy III. He promised that if it got 100,000 votes within the time frame, he’d take it to the studio and have a talk with them about making the film.

The Powers That Be have spoken, and they’re saying Guillermo del Toro will not be making a third Hellboy installment.

Fans across the globe are shedding tears as we learn that director/writer del Toro will not be helming another Hellboy movie. It’s time to punch something, smoke a cigar, and then find a kitten before you settle in for the bad news.

In mid-January, del Toro asked fans to vote in a 24-hour poll to show support for making Hellboy III. He promised that if it got 100,000 votes within the time frame, he’d take it to the studio and have a talk with them about making the film.

Unfortunately, del Toro did not get the answer we were hoping for.

However, there is hope for fans of the comics, as artist and creator Mike Mignola reminded us that just because del Toro isn’t going to be involved anymore, it doesn’t mean there won’t be future Hellboy movies. There’s always hope.

This is good news for those who perhaps didn’t like del Toro’s take on the character. It hints at a possible reboot of the franchise, but if that were to happen, don’t expect Ron Perlman to reprise his role.

For those who fell in love with Perlman’s interpretation of the titular character, this is certainly a blow. However, del Toro does wish the franchise luck, and it’s not like he’s hurting for work (he’s got Netflix’s Trollhunters, Pacific Rim 2, and The Shape of Water, to just name a few).

This tweet is certainly interesting, as it hints that he wanted to take Hellboy in a new direction, but his vision did not match the vision of the studio. Does this mean they’ve got another idea in mind already, and if so, will it be Hellboy III, or a Hellboy for a new generation?

With Ron Perlman out of the picture, it’s likely the studio may try to do a reboot, rather than replace the actor for a potential sequel. If there is a reboot, there could be resistance from fans, but with updated technology and someone else’s vision, we could be looking at an interesting new set of superhero movies that will still feel different from the blockbusters currently taking over cinemas.

The synopsis for Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda reads, “Simon Spier is sixteen and in love. Sure, he has never met the mysterious ‘Blue’ in person, but he’s falling hard and fast for their email love letters. There’s only one problem: Blue is a boy, Simon is gay, and he hasn’t told anyone else.”

The novel made the world (and Hypable) fall in love with the story, and the current cast and creative team have fans excited for this adaptation. With Wyck Godfrey’s Temple Hill Entertainment (The Maze Runner series, The Twilight Saga, and the upcoming Power Rangers) behind the scenes, it’s bound to be a big production.

Iwan Rheon has been cast as Maximus in Marvel’s upcoming ABC series, Inhumans.

Iwan Rheon will star as Maximus, an integral member of the Inhuman royal family. As the brother of the Inhuman king Black Bolt, Maximus holds considerable power in the alien city of Attilan. Charming and clever, he is exceptionally loyal to his people.

But unsurprisingly to those familiar with Rheon’s body of work, Maximus also hides darker ambitions — including taking the throne from Black Bolt.

Iwan Rheon has been cast as Maximus in Marvel’s upcoming ABC series, Inhumans.

Iwan Rheon will star as Maximus, an integral member of the Inhuman royal family. As the brother of the Inhuman king Black Bolt, Maximus holds considerable power in the alien city of Attilan. Charming and clever, he is exceptionally loyal to his people.

But unsurprisingly to those familiar with Rheon’s body of work, Maximus also hides darker ambitions — including taking the throne from Black Bolt.

Iwan Rheon is best known for his terrifying turn as Ramsay Bolton in HBO’s Game of Thrones. He has starred in the British series Misfits and Vicious, and may never play a hero again in his life.

Marvel’s head of television Jeph Loeb, who also serves as an executive producer on Inhumans, suggests that those villainous skills will be well-deployed in the role of Maximus.

“Iwan’s ability to be charming, roguish, and still completely unexpectedly dangerous were all the different sides we needed to bring the character to life,” Loeb says. “We’re thrilled to have him on board.”

Showrunner Scott Buck agrees.

“Maximus is a complex character. Likable, charming, tragic and villainous all in the same moment,” he says, “And I’m very excited to have someone of Iwan’s considerable talent.”

Marvel’s Inhumans will be produced in partnership with IMAX. The first two episodes will screen in IMAX theaters before the show’s network debut in mid September. Spanning the course of eight episodes, the series will tell the story of the Inhuman royal family, with the associated drama that just happens when you’re a family of aliens with magical powers trying to rule a secret city.

A leaked cast list for Inhumans hinted at a complex lineup of characters, including Black Bolt’s wife Medusa and her sister Crystal. Karnak, as well as the three-legged horse Gorgon and amphibious Triton round out the eclectic cast. And with Iwan Rheon in place as Maximus, it seems like just a matter of time before the rest of the family falls into line.
