Man of Steel 2 is reportedly already underway as the film heads to its release date at the end of the week. Warner Bros. has decided to keep director Zack Snyder and screenwriter David S. Goyer on for the Man of Steel sequel.

man of steel sequel zack snyderIn what isn’t entirely shocking news, Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros. has already given the go-ahead on a Man of Steel sequel, despite the film not hitting theaters for another few days. Director Zack Snyder and writer David S. Goyer will team up again for the sequel, and it’s apparently on the fast track to being made.

The promotion for the film has been incredible, and after three years of production, everyone involved will certainly be pleased to hear that the studio is willing to move forward with a sequel. This also means that they believe the film is tracking very well for a reboot.

David S. Goyer’s deal is reportedly part of a three-picture deal that he signed with Warner Bros. for Man of Steel, its sequel, and the Justice League film, which has been rumored to be in pre-production.

Deadline reports that the only question mark about the current Man of Steel production team is what Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan’s role will be in the sequel, as he was the producer for Man of Steel.

Nolan played a key role in Man of Steel, as he was a “mentor,” as well as a co-writer of the story. It’s being stated that Nolan will be more hands-off for Man of Steel’s sequel, as he’ll be busy with his next film Interstellar, which is headed to theaters in November, 2014.

Despite reviews being fairly scarce as of now for Man of Steel due to its embargo, those who have seen it have said it’s very impressive, and the studio obviously has faith in director Zack Snyder and Goyer teaming up again to continue the Superman franchise.

The world premiere was held just hours ago, so this news drops as the cast and crew are most likely still sitting in their seats as crowds are getting their first look at Man of Steel.

Man of Steel is reportedly tracking to open with $100 million or more during its first weekend, and the studio believes that the international markets will be very favorable to them as Superman’s fan base is worldwide.

While they’re chomping at the bit to start on a Man of Steel sequel, we imagine the film’s financial success is still highly important to how quick of a turnaround we’ll see for Man of Steel 2.

Man of Steel’s release date is set for June 14 and stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, and Laurence Fishburne. Check out the first official trailer for the film and several images released of the characters.

Fox has moved the third and final Maze Runner movie to 2018.

The cast and crew were only a few days into filming The Death Cure in March when Dylan O’Brien suffered serious injuries on set, prompting the production to be put on a break so he could recover. When his recovery ended up taking longer than expected, the production was put on an indefinite hold.

Now, a plan to resume the shoot seems to be in place. Fox announced Friday The Death Cure will be hitting theaters January 12, 2018, which is nearly a year later than the original February 2017 date. The last Maze Runner movie, The Scorch Trials, opened last September.

Production on The Maze Runner: The Death Cure likely won’t resume until late this year or early next. Dylan O’Brien has already committed to another movie which is expected to shoot this summer.

Getting the rest of the cast and crew back together to shoot The Maze Runner finale may be a bit of a challenge since they may’ve committed to other projects that were supposed to be shooting after they finished The Maze Runner. However, the new Death Cure release date suggests Fox has found a time that’ll work for everyone.

Tom Cavanagh will return to The Flash in season 3 as a series regular, though which character he’ll be playing remains to be seen.

Cavanagh has had a unique acting challenge on The Flash, playing a different version of his character in each of the first two seasons — and now it looks like he’ll be doing it for a third season in a row, as EW confirms that he will be a series regular in season 3.

In season 1, Cavanagh played Eobard Thawne, aka the Reverse Flash, in Harrison Wells’ body. Thawne, after traveling back in time, killed the original Wells and took his form to expedite the development of the particle accelerator so he could return to his own time. Thawne was written out of existence in the season 1 finale, though, leaving fans curious about who Cavanagh would be playing in season 2.

This past season, Cavanagh played the Earth-2 version of Harrison Wells, nicknamed Harry, who was a significantly different character from the man we thought was Wells in season 1. However, in the season 2 finale, Harry and his daughter, Jesse, returned to Earth-2.

So, who does that leave for Cavanagh to play in the third season?

My guess would be the Earth-1 version of Harrison Wells, who we only briefly met in a flashback in season 1. Why the original Wells? Because in the final moments of the season 2 finale, Barry traveled back in time and stopped Thawne from killing his mother. This means the timeline in which Thawne killed Wells and took his form no longer exists, so Earth-1 Wells would be the version left alive.

Assuming he does play the original version of the character, the one who was killed and had his identity stolen, it will be interesting to see Cavanagh inhabit yet another version of the character. While we already met Wells briefly in the flashback to his death, that was a small sample size. I look forward to seeing him differentiate another Wells from those he’s already played for entire seasons.

‘Glee’ alum Mark Salling indicted on child pornography charges

The actor is facing a lot of jail time.

4:55 pm EDT, May 27, 2016

Following an arrest in December, Glee star Mark Salling (who played Puck on the Fox series) is now facing child pornography charges.

A federal grand jury has charged the 33-year-old actor with two counts of child pornography after a search of his home turned up “thousands” of images and videos involving children, TMZ reports. He will be arraigned in early June.

Salling’s charges potentially come with big sentences: 5 to 20 years in prison for receiving child porn, and another 20 years for possessing it.

After Glee went off air last year, Salling has worked on only one project: The action movie Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets which is slated to hit theaters later this year.

The actor has been in trouble with the law before — he was sued for sexual battery in 2013.
